600- This Chicago defense is more than just a turnover causing monster… They are top 5 in basically everything… 3 rd in sacks, 1 st in QB Rating against (62!!!! They turn every QB they face into a poor man’s David Carr!), Obviously 1 st in Picks, 1 st in FF, 1 st in penalties, 4 th in 3 rd down percentage, 2 nd in points allowed (15!)…
Since Green Bay, Defense 1 st half points allowed: 3, 7, 3, 0, 6, 3. TOTAL-22 points in last 6 1 st halves, 1 total touchdown.
630- TOP 3… I mean, two of our great American states just voted to fully legalize the personal use of marijuana. I think we can squeeze a Top 3 out of that.
645- ROCKETS THOUGHTS… Maybe Harden is better than you thought, maybe he is exactly who you thought, but either way, it won’t matter much if they don’t find scoring elsewhere… And that HAS to mean consistent production from Jeremy Lin, and I don’t know that he’s ready for that.
-Also, on Asik and how good his defense HAS to be (especially given how limited centers are in the league) to offset how clearly inept he is offensively. And how it hurts this particular team more than most.
700- Tillman could miss the game for the birth of a child… I said this before and Florio agrees with me! You can’t miss a football game for the birth of the kid. I know that sounds indelicate, but if you’re in the NFL, you have a responsibility to schedule these pregnancies better. Lopez and Straw think I’m an idiot on this, here’s Florio’s take http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/11/07/players-missing-games-for-babies-being-born-raises-plenty-of-questions/
715- STRAW MAN ON CAMPUS
730- DOC KENNETH R FIRST
745- NO HUDDLE… I want to talk about the Spurs (either 4-1 or 5-0 depending on last night’s game) but I feel like we forget, 2 years ago they had the best record in the NBA, Last year they had the best record in the NBA and won their first 10 (TEN!) playoff games and EVERYONE thought they were destined for the title, and then they collapsed and LBJ happened…
