WILKES-BARRE, PA – I know a lot of you want me to go off on Rex Ryan, Tyrod Taylor and my beloved Buffalo Bills, but it’s not happening. Yet.
To be honest, I’m still processing what happened Sunday. And with reports that Ryan could be out the door before some of you even read this, and Taylor could be benched in favor of Cardale Jones for Buffalo’s Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns.
So I’m going to let all of this play out before I give my hawt taek. But I reassure you, it is coming. I just can’t settle on one side of the debate right now.
So instead of a Buffalo Bills rant, I have a brand new set of Ebs’ Hot Takes for you.
Russ Westbrook is the second-best player in the NBA. Next to LeBron James, Russell Westbrook reigns supreme.
NBA pundits are always quick to rank Steph Curry second behind James, but I’m telling you it should be Westbrook.
The man is averaging a triple-double and can do things with the basketball that no other point guard is doing in this league right now. He amazes me every time he’s on TV.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have to find a way to get Jake Guentzel up with the NHL club. I’m not sure how much of a Pittsburgh Penguins following is on this site, but I have to point out an observation I made while covering the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins this past week. And 2013 third-round pick Jake Guentzel shouldn’t be in the AHL.
New York Rangers fans might remember Guentzel from his two-goal effort on Nov. 21, in his NHL debut. He returned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday, and in the Penguins’ three games since, he has registered six points on three goals and three assists. Every time he touches the puck magic happens.
Aaron Rodgers is going to lead the Green Bay Packers to an NFC North crown. The Green Bay Packers looked dead in the water three weeks ago, but with a resurgence from Aaron Rodgers, there’s a path to home playoff game for the Packers.
With three games left, two games separate the Packers and first-place Detroit Lions and the two teams square off Week 17.
Matt Stanford has a dislocation and torn ligaments in the middle figure of his throwing hand, and the Lions face the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys before Week 17. That’s some tough sledding.
Green Bay, on the other hand, has the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings on tap before its game against the Lions. Both are very winnable.
Buckle up, because we’re in for a fun few weeks.
For those of you who missed it, John Cena was on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. It was alright overall, but this sketch was pretty great.
