Haha I bet you do playa.

And yes a dynasty is a team that is built to contend year in and year out, 3 in 6 would in my eyes atleast solidify them. I could see the argument that they'd have to win 4 in 7 with this and next year going back 2 back. Every sports dynasty has won atleast two back to back.

I'm rooting for the Packers in the Super Bowl. I was surprised the Bears made it a game there in the second half with their third string QB.

A bunch of players were saying that Cutler must not have been that injured, if he was able to stand on the sideline?

All they do is play there own brand of football and win. All they do is groom there own players and win.

They dont go out and sign flashy free agents, they dont overpay guys, they let em walk and bring it new talent and keep winning.

Of course, around here, everyone hates Pittsburgh, but thats cuz they are a rival.

I'm hate them when the Browns play em, but truth be told, they play football the way its supposed to be played.

Yeah, the Ravens are a better team. That's why their "excellent" set of receivers didn't know how to catch a ball, or even get open, during the playoff game. And that's why they almost lost to the Steelers' fourth string QB in Week Four.

Green Lantern: Chewed Up And Spit Out In*Pittsburgh January 25, 2011 10:13 am By Jeff Capellini, CBSNewYork.com PITTSBURGH (CBS 2) –*For all of its glitz and glamour, the new Meadowlands Stadium will never be Heinz Field — even if the Jets or Giants become the best team*in football for an extended period of time. Steelers Nation has us over a barrel. I know. I saw it myself first hand. I may never be the same. The truth is you’d be hard-pressed to find any*stadium*in any sport as intimidating as*Heinz. At least not in January with a trip to the Super Bowl at stake. Everything you’ve heard about*Pittsburgh and its love for its football team is true. But since we live in a talk is cheap society, the only way to know for sure is to visit the Steel City and see for yourself. So*I attended the AFC Championship game on Sunday,*totally*mindful of*the city’s*reputation for being unforgiving to opposing fans. But as I sit here and type away following the 400-mile trip back to the tri-state area on Monday (it took much of the six-hour trip to get the feeling back in my fingers), I can tell you without hesitation that*Pittsburgh’s reputation and love for all things gold and black is very much for real. It’s in your face and it’s relentless. You’ve heard stories about the “Black Hole” in Oakland and the hatred Philadelphia fans have for basically everyone, including their very own teams and players. You’ve seen the fans up in Boston do a number on Yankees fans and the folks out in Foxborough lay into Jets supporters. Everyone by now is aware of what a trip to the Bronx is like, especially in October. Trust me, they don’t hold a candle to the ferocity of Pittsburgh fans. It didn’t really matter that the Jets beat the Steelers at Heinz back in Week 15. It didn’t matter that the Jets were flying high after having beaten both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in their houses the previous two weeks. None of it made any difference to the Steelers fan whatsoever. That’s because, to*a man and woman, the people of Steelers Nation know that at home in the playoffs their team is better than everyone else, period. They carry themselves in a way that pushes the envelope of sportsmanship to the edge, but never quite oversteps the imaginary boundaries. Only 312,000 people live in Pittsburgh, but on game day all 312,000 are a united front against all enemies — foreign, domestic, you name it. To put it simply, the city of Pittsburgh may very well be the single greatest homefield advantage anywhere in professional sports. We, as Jets fans, had — or at least thought we had — strength in numbers. Looking back, it’s real easy to understand why we totally missed the boat on that one. It started about 50 miles west along I-76. Every last road sign*warned us*about a lot more than slippery roads. “GO STEELERS”*was*flashing on*every last sign. Every car had a Steelers flag or decal. People at rest stops looked at us funny, as if to say “Oh boy, fresh meat.” We were eventually*greeted with a rather spectacular sight at night.*Sitting at the base of*a mountain lies the NFL’s model city. Sure, it also has the Pirates and Penguins — and of course the latter is rather tremendous in its own right — but make no mistake, Pittsburgh is football country. Stanley Cup championships and dreams of a .500 season in baseball are merely just distractions until football season starts. We got to our hotel, which was located about three miles from Heinz, and it took about 12 seconds for the assault to begin. We walked into the lobby. We weren’t even wearing Jets gear and they knew. I immediately envisioned my credit card being charged double or triple. Fans*just started pointing and snickering. The guy at the registration desk did his best not to laugh at us. The Penguins were on the TV playing the Hurricanes. Only the presence of a few foreigners from New York could tear their eyes away from the screen. And even then it was just for a second. They shot their looks of death, shook their heads in disgust and then went back to watching the game. Saturday night in Pittsburgh was an event. Through Twitter we put together a group of about 20 Jets fans and we decided to try our luck on Carson Street, or the other official place where opposing fans go to get ridiculed. Upon entering “Jack’s,” more of a college bar where trouble wouldn’t need much of an invitation, I saw near-retirement age men wearing the types of Mark Sanchez T-shirts that decorum prevents me from describing here. We did take solace, however, in the fact that beer prices were very manageable. I will take to the grave the opinion that the bartenders and bouncers only allowed us to comandeer their establishment because our green, in a lot of cases, was more plentiful than what they were used to receiving. There were no incidents to speak of, but there was plenty rewriting of the Jets’ main chant. You can probably imagine what was said. Again, it was sort of par for the course, but what made it insane was it never stopped. You’d think the Jets were the worst team in the league with the way the Pittsburgh people were talking. So what if the Jets won*there a month ago. The stakes*were higher now and the cream always rises to the top in Pittsburgh, they said. It most certainly did as we all saw. Jets fans brave the elements at a tailgate outside Heinz Field on Jan. 23, 2011. (Photo/ Jeff Capellini) After several hours of battling the hometown fans we worked our way over to Primanti Bros., arguably the greatest sandwich place in North America. It’s so good it’s open 24 hours a day. The guys working there laughed at us initially, but the New York cash roll rule was still in play so they did their best to behave, along the way telling us how lucky we were to get there when we did. Why? Because unbeknownst to us we*had arrived before last call at the bars.*If we had shown up 45*minutes*later we would’ve been*in the deep end of the pool with about 200 sharks. We spent the better part of Sunday preparing for what we thought would be the Jets’ coronation from team on the cusp of greatness to one that would finally end the 42-year drought between Super Bowl appearances. We dressed for the bitterly cold temperatures cautiously, trying to imagine how the players would*go about their business*in the locker room. I mean I literally asked my buddy Dom for a roll of tape. The only thing missing was John Facenda’s voice over an NFL soundtrack playing in the background Again, we were foolish. We were noobs. We were stupid enough to listen to our hearts. The fine people at JetNation.com put together a massive tailgate about a half-mile from Heinz for any Jets fan that survived Saturday night. We had a ton of people. We ate like kings not knowing it was really a last supper of sorts. No matter how well we thought we dressed for the elements we quickly found out that Pittsburgh is*really the North Pole and that we’d*actually slept through our trips and been unaware that we took a detour through the Bermuda Triangle. It was a rather standard tailgate until around 5:30 p.m. when we all decided to head to Heinz. This is where things really got intense. You have to walk*that half-mile and for our group it was more like walking death row. I kid you not. Fans of all ages in our faces, some throwing snowballs. Profanity brought up to an art form. Old ladies giving us*the evil eye. Children giving us the finger. College-age males railing away on us like we tried to dance with their dates. It was crazy. At most NFL stadiums it’s now an ordeal to get inside. Security is rightfully a very slow, arduous*process so, like in the image shown above, you’re often packed in tight like sardines. At the Meadowlands, no problem. Someone will say something funny and it will help pass the time. But at Heinz? Ha. Did I mention before how much they don’t like Sanchez? Well, add Rex Ryan to that list as well. It almost felt as if I was Rex and my buddy was Sanchez and the guy next to him was Antonio Cromartie. Once inside it was get a beer or go to the bathroom at your own risk. Teaming up was a must, not that it would have made much difference if someone in gold and black or green and white had had too much to drink. The bathrooms were an event. You’re waiting on line and you have a choice to make. Do your business now and deal with the wrath or be uncomfortable for a while. Either way, you were going to be uncomfortable. The upper deck of the north end zone at Heinz, the “Lost” island of western Pennsylvania, as I like to think of it, was just madness. You sit down, the fans are on you. God forbid you cheered once, you were*ducking a flying beer. We just prayed Sanchez or the defense could find a way to get the Jets on the board early. Of course, that didn’t happen and by the time it was 17-0 in the second quarter we knew only a true act of NFL Jesus was going to spare us the true humiliation that we had yet to experience. The Jets did salvage what was left of our lives with a spirited and frantic comeback in the second half, but, alas, Jets Nation was left wondering if Year 43 of the wait would be the final year. The abuse died down a bit as we dispersed following the final gun, mostly because the Steelers faithful had shifted their hatred of the puny Jets to the mighty Packers. We were left to fend for ourselves on the three-mile trek back to where we would lay our heads. Some guys suggested going out to a bar to drown in our sorrows, but I knew somehow that would be a bad idea so we, for sake of a better term, jetted to the relative safety of our hotel. The six-hour drive home on Monday was filled with your typical lamenting of what could’ve been. Luckily for me my travel partners were diehard Jets fans with good heads on their shoulders and lots of perspective. We got over it pretty quickly — the loss, that is. What we will always take with us is the beatdown we received in the belly of the beast. As the sun set Monday evening we pulled up alongside the new Meadowlands Stadium. One of my buddies laughed while announcing we had come full circle. Not me, I thought to myself. Part of me died in Pittsburgh. And*those ravenous fans*dragged what was left of my*soul through the streets.

The Fish has been fried. I will always respect Jeff Fisher. He took the Titans farther than they had ever been before, but not far enough. It was time, and I'm thankful that Bud Adams finally saw that. Not sure who I would like to see take over in Nashville yet, but I'm glad there's finally going to be a change. I don't know who will be the Titans coach next year, and I don't know who will be their QB either, but I know it was time for the stache to go. Word is they may hire Mike Munchak. I would be happy with that. I have heard Titans players suggest he would be a great head coach in the past, and he has turned down many offers to go elsewhere to stay with the organization.

Last 2 years the Titans are 12-4 with Vince, and 2-14 with the guy that Fisher wanted to play instead of Vince. So I ask you, how could you possibly put more blame on Vince than Fisher for "bringing the franchise down?" For the record, I am personally excited that we are finally getting a new coach, and don't feel that the franchise has been brought down at all. Brought down from what? We've never won the big one. Never! I have more hope that we will fairly soon than I did with Fisher. I hate to say that about Fisher, cuz I was a big Fisher supporter for a long time, but he's just been fucking up for a while now, and it was Fisher who was "bringing the franchise down" if anyone was imo.

Having suffered through the Carr years I'm ok with sticking with Kubes for at least one more year to see if he can get it done with at worst a mediocre D. Our offense has been good to great depending on which game we're talking about. Them coming out flat does concern me but it could and has been a whole lot worse. A decent D could have won us 4 or so more games last year and we had the toughest schedule in the league.

In the end only time will tell. I just don't want to see a scenario where the offense and its schemes get blown up and have to start from scratch as its really not needed.

That was his MO in college, most of his throws were 20 yards or closer with the occassional deep ball to Shipley but throwing for over 70% in college is a great indicator of future success. I definitely think in the right scheme he could dink and dunk a lot of teams to death.

Yeah, they probably should have canned Kubiak. Not to say he's a terrible coach; there are plenty of worse ones out there. Kubiak can sure as hell put together talent through the draft and such too. But when Bill Cowher said he'd coach the Texans, I was ready for Kubiak to be let go right then and there. Fisher is a damn good coach, but I'd take Cowher over Fisher, especially with the defense that the Texans have slowly put together.

He's totally right; Vince Young did have the highest passer rating. I know there's a lot of arguments against VY, but the reality is that on the field, he's more than half-decent. Just because he's an emotional bitch off the field doesn't mean he's not a good QB, and that's the problem Fisher had. He would rather view VY for his off-field issues than for his on-field performance. There's QBs better than VY, but I'd take him over probably any QB that isn't on the upper-tier.

Throwin this out there, I'm sick of Kyle Orton getting bashed; that guy played for Chicago for fuck's sake. Of course he wasn't gonna be a motherfucking hero there, not throwing to the people he was throwin to. And he turned Brandon Marshall into one of the best receivers in the league this year, if not considered the best, statistically. He's a lot better than people give him credit for.

Yeah, it is all about the ring. But the point is, Vince did a good job at his position this year. You can't try to argue that Tom Brady's 2007 season was nothing just cause he didn't finish with a ring. He set a bunch of records that year and went 16-0. Success is surely measured in Lombardis, but not strictly. If records didn't matter we wouldn't care so damn much about them.

Don't even try to talk sense into Tooch. If we actually dug up the stat that showed that Young led the NFL in QB rating, he just wouldn't comment on it. He will run off at the mouth about how ridiculous it is for me to say that, and call me a "fucking idiot" and then when he's proven wrong he'll ignore it and talk about Super Bowls. The guy actually claims VY got Fisher fired!!!! It has been proven beyond any doubt that Jeff Fisher would rather play Collins and lose than play Young and win, and the Titans are wrong for firing him? Lol! I guess the Titans are stupid for wanting to win. some of it is probably the fact that he is in fact the idiot, and then you have the fact that he's a Browns fan to screw up his football logic further.

As QB you cannot be immature. You have to be a leader, not a hot head, you gotta be able to THROW the football accurately, read defenses, etc. Clutchness.


Look at the two QBs in the super bowl.....look at the past 10 QBs to win a super bowl. They all have these qualities in common and Young really has none of them.

Enough with Vince Young. He's gonna be gone anyway. How can you say Fisher wasn't the problem? He would rather lose games and one player off of the field, than win them with him on the field over personal issues. I can't really see how anyone could argue against that fact. Now that we've established that, you don't think a coach caring more about being right about a particular player not being the guy, than winning football games is a problem? I know Jeff Fisher is a good coach, but he let his own personal issues with being forced to draft Young against his wishes affect the team in a horrible way. Fisher didn't deserve all of the blame for the problems between him and Young, but he's the coach, and he was VERY unprofessional about it from day one. He knew Young was emotionally fragile, and he played on it, and it finally worked. Unfortunately for him (Fisher) he had screwed the team up so badly in the process, he got himself fired. You disagree? i honestly believe that if VY had a coach who supported him from day one, we wouldn't have seen the emotional outbursts from him. i'm not saying VY is the best QB in the league, but he was far better than Fisher ever thought he would be, and Fisher was too stubborn to admit it, and deal with it like a coach should.

Tickers at risk for fans of team losing the Super Bowl

By Chris Ramirez, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Monday, January 31, 2011


Doctors and football fans know heart-stopping moments are part of any Super Bowl.

Now, a study by a California cardiologist found that death rates associated with heart problems climb in a city immediately after the home team loses a Super Bowl.

"Stressful games for some people elicit an emotional response that can trigger a cardiac event," said Dr. Robert Kloner, professor at Good Samaritan Hospital and the Keck School of Medicine at University of Southern California in Los Angeles. "That clearly happens when rabid fans who have deep emotional ties to their team get excited."

Kloner collected Los Angeles County death-certificate data for the two weeks after the Steelers defeated the L.A. Rams in Super Bowl XIV and the two weeks after the L.A. Raiders beat the Washington Redskins in 1984. He compared it to mid-January death rates for years Los Angeles teams weren't in the Super Bowl.

His findings, published today in the journal Clinical Cardiology, found a 15 percent increase in circulatory system-related deaths in men and a 27 percent increase among women, associated with Super Bowl loss. Among older patients, the increase associated with Super Bowl loss was 22 percent.

The Steelers will go for their NFL-record seventh Lombardi Trophy on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas.

Doctors advise Steelers fans watching the game on TV: If you feel chest pain, don't wait for the game to end.

"When the Steelers are playing in the Super Bowl, everything stops. ...You don't even get people coming into the ER," said Dr. George Gabriel, a cardiologist at Allegheny General Hospital. "It's almost as if it's OK to die, as long as you see the game from start to finish."

Dr. John Schindler, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Cardiovascular Institute, was on duty during the Steelers' Super Bowl appearances in 2006 and 2009.

He treated a man in his 50s who collapsed from cardiac arrest while watching the Steelers' divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. The man survived but told Schindler the last thing he remembered before blacking out was Steelers running back Jerome Bettis' infamous fourth-quarter fumble at the Colts' 2-yard line.

Colts Cornerback Nick Harper recovered the ball and was tackled at midfield by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers won the game on their way to their Super Bowl XL victory in Detroit.

Pittsburgh finally comes up with something original (black n yellow) and now everyone is biting that song. I know its sports and hip-hop and everyone bites in both industries, but when you're the tenth rapper to remake that song, maybe you just should try to come up with something original

Umm. In Hip-Hop, it's an honor to have your shit remixed. It's actually a thriving piece of Hip Hop, the REMIX. I'm sure Wiz would smack you in the face for saying people shouldn't continue to get the word about him out there by remixing his music and using that beat.

I'm nervous about this game. There is no reason that the steelers should be under dogs. Better team, #2 seed and they have super bowl experience.

I think the fix is in. Everybody will be taking the steelers and the points and it will be fixed for the packers and the bookies to win.

•mike tomlin is also to blame. he gave up on the running game too early and attempting a 52 yard field goal on 4th down instead of going for it

polamalu had a bad game.

Ben didnt play particularly well.

Mike Wallace is good, but I think they really miss Santonio Holmes. The guy was great at making clutch catches in tight spots.

Pittsburgh's pass defense is the weak link of their defense and it played right into the strenght of Green Bay, which is throwing the ball.

Pitt was fortunate GB had a lot of huge drops.

But than again, Pitt had some pretty bad turnovers. The Mendenhall fumble really hurt because Pitt had all the momentum at that time.

Dick Lebeau can't do it all, and considering they lost the turnover battle 3-0, things should have been much worse. Ben lost the game, and while Rogers wasn't that great, and his receivers dropped too many passes, he probably deserved the MVP. Despite the comeback, and the high amount of points scored, I found this to be a rather boring Superbowl with a lackluster anticlimactic ending.

Agreed. the officiating was very good. Both defenses played pretty well imo. Aaron Rodgers was putting most of his passes in the most perfect spot possible. That first TD pass for example. Almost impossible to defend successfully. Aaron Rodgers > Ben Ruthlessraper. That was the difference in this one. Mendenhall's fumble hurt pretty bad too. Should've taken C.J. in the draft instead of him. lol Congrats to the Packers on the championship, and to the Steelers on a yet another great season.

-JaMarcus Russell is on the verge of losing his mansion

The biggest bust in NFL history could be getting the boot in Oakland again.

JaMarcus Russell is facing foreclosure on his $2.4 million Bay Area mansion after failing to pay the mortgage. According to TMZ (which managed to secure some documents about the foreclosure in between all of its Charlie Sheen coverage), the former No. 1 pick owes nearly $200,000 in back payments.

Now, I'm not privy to the financial statements of Mr. Russell, but his history of decision-making doesn't bode well for his chances of covering the debt. (Unless he has some stock in Robitussin that all of a sudden skyrockets.) He hasn't been on an NFL roster for eight months, his workouts with teams like the Redskins and Dolphins have been unsuccessful, and he refuses to play for any football team that isn't in the NFL. The only thing that's gone right for him in the past few months is that he wasn't indicted on charges of possessing codeine syrup without a prescription. (It belonged to someone else, you see.)

Upon getting drafted by the Raiders, Russell signed a contract worth $32 million guaranteed. If he doesn't pay the $195,512.05 he owes in the next three months, he'll lose the house.

--Ex-Raider Smith, 2 others charged in 2008 killing

LOS ANGELES (AP)—Authorities say former Oakland Raiders defensive end Anthony Wayne Smith and two others have been charged with murder in the 2008 beating and shooting death of a 31-year-old man in northern Los Angeles County.

District attorney’s spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says a judge Friday postponed arraignment for the 43-year-old Smith and two other suspects until March 17.

Smith, 41-year-old Charles Eric Honest and 32-year-old Dewann Wesley White were charged last month with one count of murder in the killing of Maurilio Ponce in Lancaster. They were arrested this week and are being held on $1 million bail.

All three men are expected to have court-appointed attorneys. A message left with the public defender’s office was not immediately returned.

Smith played for the Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders from 1991 to 1998.

--Barber's personal and professional life have been in shambles recently. In April 2010, Barber reportedly left his wife of 11 years, Ginny, for 23-year-old Traci Johnson, a former NBC intern. Ginny was eight months pregnant at the time. Soon after, NBC cited its morals clause and terminated Barber's contract, which reportedly paid him more than $300,000 per year.

In June 2010, the New York Post reported Barber was broke and couldn't pay his divorce settlement with his ex-wife.

Dave Hyde Sun Sentinel Columnist 11:43 a.m. EDT, April 27, 2011


He arrived at Dolphins camp for the first time in a 1962 Dodge Valiant covered with psychedelic flowers. His hair was to his shoulders. Hippie beads were around his neck. And he wore the smile that always said life was good.

"You,'' Don Shula (http://wutang-corp.com/topic/sports/football/don-shula-PESPT008414.topic) asked upon meeting him that day, "were the captain of Michigan?"

"Yes sir,'' he said.

That was the spring of 1970 and now, more four decades later, Jim Mandich leaves us. He died Tuesday night of cancer (http://wutang-corp.com/topic/health/diseases-illnesses/cancer-HEDAI0000010.topic). He was 62. And he didn't just lead a good, representative life. He led a novel.


Text alerts: Get South Florida sports news on your phone (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/services/sms-text-alerts/?track=ss-mark-embed-sports)

Jim won Super Bowl (http://wutang-corp.com/topic/sports/football/super-bowl-EVSPR000004.topic) rings, married and raised three boys, made good money, went broke, picked himself up and became president of a construction company, a radio talk-show host and the Dolphins game analyst with the tradmark line after a big play of, "Awwwright, Miami!"

That's what he did. It barely scrapes who he was.

"Are you guys doing all right?" he phoned to ask of Heat announcers Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino when the team was in a five-game losing streak. "This must be tough on you."

This was in March. Mandich was the one with cancer. He was the one with undergoing chemotherapy (http://wutang-corp.com/topic/health/health-treatments/chemotherapy-HETHT00009.topic) sessions. He was the who had lost so much weight.

And he was worried about them?

Mandich, you see, was a helper, an encourager. Oh, he was a tough guy. He once shattered his hand catching a touchdown, had 18 screws surgically implanted in it and played the next week in the 1973 AFC Championship Game. And he was authentic. He once got fired at Channel 10 for refusing another beer advertiser when everyone knew he was a Heineken man - "green lizards," as he said.

But at his core Mandich wanted to make everyone better. He was rare that way. He took young guys under his wing and encouraged peers, all with the geniune feel of a man who used to do his homework in his father's bar in Solon, Ohio.

He never forgot who helped him along the way and gave back tenfold. That's why you could walk into a bar in Augusta, Ga., where Mandich made an annual pilgramage to the Masters, and see him holding court with Steve Hutchinson, the All-Pro guard by way of Coral Springs and Michigan. Mandich was a helping hand all his years. Him, and a few dozen others like him. Why do you think Ryan Mallett tweeted out Tuesday night his condolences went to the Mandich family?

Here's a story: Each Tuesday during the Dolphins season for the past several years, Mandich had a luncheon at Shula's Steak House in Miami Lakes. People bought tickets. They ate lunch.

They also laughed through Mandich's monologues and interviews with players. He'd get Justin Smiley to talk about spotting his future wife, a San Francisco cheerleader, in the game program one year. The next, he'd get Joe Rose on some riff about women.

But those luncheons weren't for him. He raised at least $60,000 a year from them to help former Dolphins in need. He was on the board of Dolphins who privately decided how to divvy up the funds raised to those players.

In so many ways, Mandich personified those '72 Dolphins he was such a part of. He became as big a success in business as he did in football, then an even bigger and more beloved personality in the community.

He touched so many people in such a good way that when word spread more than a year ago he had cancer he was flooded with calls. Take my private jet if needed, Jim. I'm a doctor, Jim. This hospital is best, Jim. Here's a remedy my aunt tried for that, Jim.

"Overwhelming,'' he called that.

It never stopped, either. How could it? When you're captain at Michigan, when you're a star at the Dolphins, when you carry yourself through life in the manner Mandich did, everyone you met couldn't help but help.

When he started 30 years ago as president of Lotspeich Construction, he put a picture of his family on the wall. Then one with him and friends at a game. Then another.

By the time he retired, he had filled three walls with snapshots of him and family and friends and the times they had. On Sundays, he invited all of us along for the ride with him.

"Alllright, Miami!" he'd shout.

I never knew what was more fun – watching the play or hearing the joy in Mandich's voice.

"Life is good,'' he'd always say, which never quite did his life justice. It was great. Authentic. Unique, even. That's what makes his passing hurt so much.

Pitt player refused to stop beating man, police said
Monday, July 19, 2010

http://post-gazette.com/pg/images/201007/20100719brk_ds_local_pitt_sheard_fight_500.jpg

University of Pittsburgh football player Jabaal Sheard refused to stop fighting on a South Side street early Sunday morning and then hurled another man through a glass door even after a police officer hit him repeatedly with his baton, according to court papers.

Mr. Sheard, a starting defensive end, was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct in the incident outside La Fond Galleries on East Carson Street.


Jabaal Sheard
Garrett Brown, a city officer working an off-duty detail, said Mr. Sheard, listed at 6-feet-4 and 260 pounds, ignored his commands to stop fighting Edward Parker, 27, of Stanton Heights.

Officer Brown said Mr. Sheard kept punching Mr. Parker as the officer and other city officers tried to break up the fight. After absorbing several of Officer Brown's baton blows to the body, Mr. Sheard picked up Mr. Parker by his clothing and threw him through the glass door of the gallery, then continued to punch him in the face as he lay bleeding on the floor inside the business, according to an affidavit.

Officers finally subdued both men with OC spray.

Mr. Sheard was taken to jail. Mr. Parker's girlfriend drove him to the hospital.

Officer Brown said he didn't know why the men were fighting, but he said he'll talk to the district attorney's office about possible charges against Mr. Parker for his role.

Mr. Sheard has been suspended from the team.

Epicly ecstatic with my Titans 1st round pick. Best QB in the draft. The only reason he dropped from his preseason prediction of being the number 1 pick was a terrible team around him, and his own improvement. He threw the ball away on purpose more than any QB prospect in the draft. That's not a bad thing, but scouts look at his completion percentage and say he isn't accurate. We'll see about that. Mark my words, Locker wil be the best QB out of this class!

--Bernard Hopkins: McNabb isn’t tough enough or black enough


Donovan McNabb probably didn't wake up thinking he'd get blindsided in the media Wednesday with possibly the most vicious comments he's ever heard.

And there probably also weren't a lot of people that anticipated Bernard Hopkins, just days before one of the biggest fights in his storied boxing career, ruthlessly laying into McNabb.

That's exactly what happened, though. Hopkins, a Philadelphia guy and avid Eagles fan, invited the press to a workout Tuesday. He was asked about Michael Vick(notes) playing for his hometown Eagles, and Hopkins went off on McNabb in a brutal, racial way. Here's a snippet from Marcus Hayes at Philly.com:

According to Hopkins, McNabb had a privileged childhood in suburban Chicago and, as a result, is not black enough or tough enough, at least compared with, say, himself, Michael Vick and Terrell Owens(notes).

"Forget this," Hopkins said, pointing to his own dark skin. "He's got a suntan. That's all."

Hopkins also implied that, while Vick and Owens remained true to their roots, McNabb did not, and that McNabb was rudely awakened when the Eagles traded him to the Redskins last year.

"Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He's the one who got the extra coat. The extra servings. 'You're our boy,' " Hopkins said, patting a reporter on the back in illustration. "He thought he was one of them."

For more context on the "house vs. field" thing Hopkins is talking about, you can peruse this Wikipedia entry (strong language present there) or read the original quote from Malcolm X.

It's not the first time Bernard Hopkins has ripped into McNabb, either. He did it back in 2007 when he said McNabb didn't have Jeff Garcia's heart, and again in 2008, when he said McNabb wouldn't sacrifice to win and had no killer instinct. Last year, he said he was going to have a party celebrating McNabb leaving Philadelphia.

Some people believe this all stems from an incident where Hopkins showed up to an Eagles team function and McNabb snubbed him.

Nothing that's happened between the two in the past comes close to Hopkins' most recent comments, though. Those cross entirely different lines.

Through his publicist, McNabb already said about the only thing he could say -- that he won't have any response to Hopkins' comments.

-- Raheem Brock skips out on $27 bar tab, arrested


I believe we have a new winner of the category of "Most Bizarre Arrest of the Offseason." Free-agent defensive end Raheem Brock was arrested on Thursday night for skipping out on a $27 bar tab at the Copacabana in Philadelphia.

It's weirder than just that, though, and the main culprit in the story appears to be Brock's ladyfriend, who might not be the most fun date in the world.

I'm going to have to quote extensively from NFL.com to relay the story accurately. Here we go.

A female server at the Copacabana told NFL.com that it was the behavior of a woman accompanying Brock that led the defensive end to leave without paying his bill.

"It wasn't even (Brock) that was the issue," the server said. "It was the fat female he was with, getting angry and wanting to leave.

"The female was mad (because) she wanted something that wasn't on the menu. So she went across the street and got something from another restaurant."

When a manager told her she couldn't bring food from another restaurant inside the Copacabana, the woman became further enraged and Brock and his friends were ultimately asked to leave.

"She got a little colorful and a little angry with me," the server said. "I told my manager that she refuses to wrap it up and refuses to (stop) eating."

Charming! She sounds like a keeper.

As for the bill, Brock and Miss Congeniality eventually agreed to leave the restaurant, but they did so before paying a $27 bar tab. That's when the restaurant called the police. Brock was arrested outside for theft of services and resisting arrest.

NFL.com makes no mention of the woman being arrested or charged with anything, and isn't that just the way things always seem to go?

Brock spent last year with the Seahawks after spending the previous eight with the Colts. He'll be a free agent when we have football again, and it sounds like he might want to consider embracing free agency on the dating scene, too.

lol @ sending a marriage proposal through the mail?


--Roy Williams wants to get back the ring he mailed to girlfriend

Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams is going to court to get back the $76,000 engagement ring he gave to a former beauty pageant winner.

In February, Williams proposed to his girlfriend, Brooke Daniels. When she turned him down, Daniels didn't return the ring. According to Williams' affidavit that was filed in a Texas court last week, he asked for the ring back but was told by Daniels that she had lost it. An insurance investigation later revealed that Daniels' father was in possession of the ring.

Michael Daniels told the Odessa American that his daughter will return the ring to avoid the lawsuit even though he says he has documentation saying Williams told her to keep it.

Pretty standard stuff, right? Minus the price tag, this is a dispute that probably happens every day in the United States. Except it's not because most people don't propose the way Roy Williams did.

From the Odessa American:

Williams has declined to comment for the story, but in an affidavit signed by Williams, he claims he sent $5,000 for school and dental bills, a baseball for Daniels' brother and — as a surprise — a recorded marriage proposal with the ring through the mail just before Valentine's Day to Daniels. However, when Daniels declined the proposal, she did not return the ring.

He recorded a marriage proposal and then sent the ring through the mail? Unless you're a soldier stationed overseas, that's just about the lamest thing I've ever heard. If you proposed through the mail, wouldn't you not want other people to hear that? I'd consider eating the $76,000 just so I didn't have to tell anyone.

It's a shame Daniels is giving the ring back and avoiding trial because we may have learned the specifics of how Williams went about this process. Was it a video proposal? Did he record it in song form? And how did she reject him, with a return receipt?

I'm surprised Harrison didn't turn down his Super Bowl ring because they would have just given them to Arizona if they won.

After capping a stellar season with a subpar performance in Super Bowl XLV, it’s understandable if James Harrison and the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers are less-than-happy about the way the 2010 season ended.

But after James Harrison’s comments to Men’s Journal, it’s tough to imagine the mood will be any lighter when Steelers training camp opens this summer. Speaking of teammate Ben Roethlisberger's play in Super Bowl XLV, Harrison said:

"Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like
Peyton Manning. You ain't that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does."

It’s doubtful that the fact that Roethlisberger’s second interception of the game came on a play that started on the Packers 49-yard line, technically “their side of the field” will make Harrison reconsider his comments.

Ben Roethlisberger
In Own Territory Last Season
Rank
Comp pct 72.1 3rd
Yds per att 10.3 1st
Passer rtg 103.7 1st
Int 3 T-3rd
>>min. 100 att

But Big Ben’s unparalleled ability to lead the Steelers out of their own territory in the regular season should.

In 2010, Roethlisberger not only didn’t ask the Steelers defense to bail him out frequently, he was arguably the best quarterback in the league at helping his team reverse field position when backed up against its own goal line.

Roethlisberger completed 147 of 204 passes for 2,094 yards with three TDs and three interceptions in his own territory last season. His 103.7 passer rating here is even more impressive when one considers the difficulty in throwing touchdowns on plays that originate at least 51 yards from the end zone.

Of the 33 quarterbacks who threw at least 100 passes in their own territory last regular season, none had a better passer rating on those attempts than Roethlisberger, and his 10 yards per attempt on these passes was also best in the NFL.

Just three of Roethlisberger’s 204 passes from his own end were intercepted last season, an interception percentage of 1.47 percent. Only three of the 33 QBs mentioned above had a lower interception of percentage in their own territory – Josh Freeman, Tom Brady and Alex Smith.

In Own Territory Last Season
Roethlisberger Manning
Comp pct 72.1 68.5
Yds per att 10.3 7.1
Passer rtg 103.7 78.4
Int 3 12<<
>>T-4th most in NFL

Harrison also made the comment that Roethlisberger is trying to emulate Peyton Manning with his play in his own territory. In fact, he’s been much better than the Indianapolis Colts future Hall-of-Famer in such situations.

Twelve of Manning’s 17 interceptions last season came on the Colts side of the field, more than all but three other NFL quarterbacks. And Manning’s passer rating in his own territory was 78.4, a full 25 points behind Big Ben’s.

The stats show that Roethlisberger has been a better quarterback than Manning in his own territory. If Harrison is tired of his defense being asked to bail out the Steelers offense time and time again, he should be thankful that Ben is no Peyton. He’s only paid like him.

Sorry, but I can’t hate the Eagles: Rival fan’s take

As a New York Giants (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nyg/) fan, I feel obligated to hate the Philadelphia Eagles (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/phi/). But I'm here to admit that I just can't do it.
http://d.yimg.com/a/p/sp/ac/a6/fullj.3ad5be7fa3e42ba7637ed68b54eeb575/88023730.jpg?&sig=QHQ0yl2VI5HzBpg38nTZfA-- How can anybody, even a Giants fan, hate Eagles head coach Andy Reid?
Wikimedia Commons

I can't stand the Dallas Cowboys (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/dal/), I have no love for the Washington Redskins (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/was/), but there is something about the Eagles that makes me secretly root for them against the other two. It may have something to do with my admiration for Eagles head coach Andy Reid, a real stand-up guy who says the right things, or the swagger of Eagles fans, which in many ways is similar to that of Giants fans. Of course, Giants fans have seen their win three Super Bowls since 1986, but who's counting?
By the way, I have every right to hate the Eagles. They have beaten the Giants six straight times, including last season's epic comeback at the New Meadowlands Stadium in which the Giants blew a 21-point halftime lead before losing on DeSean Jackson's (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8826/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8826/news) punt-return touchdown as time expired. Jackson's scamper into the endzone on New York's turf basically killed Big Blue's 2010 season.Speaking of Jackson, that's one dude on the Eagles I can't stand (I didn't say hate), but he can play for my team any day.
I realize that Eagles fans are Phillies fans who take joy in taunting my New York Mets (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/nym/). That's okay. Try sharing a city and the sports section with a team that has won 27 World Series championships. When it comes to being obnoxious, Philadelphia fans have nothing on Yankees fans. As a matter of fact, if there is a rematch of the 2009 World Series in October between the Phillies and Yankees, I've got your back, Philly.
Apparently, there is no love lost between the players on the Eagles and Giants. Earlier this off-season, Philly running back LeSean McCoy (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9317/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9317/news) called Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6392/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6392/news) "soft" and "overrated." Umenyiora and teammate Steve Smith (http://sports.search.yahoo.com/search?p=Steve+Smith+NFL&fr=sports-us-ss) fired back at McCoy, who the Giants affectionately have named "Lady Gaga." Do I hate McCoy? On the contrary, I love that stuff! It'll be that much sweeter when the Giants tune him up on the field.
No, I don't hate the Eagles, but there's nothing I would love more than seeing the Giants stomp them out this season.

Michael Vick on Capitol Hill today

By Tom Weir (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/reporter/Tom+Weir), USA TODAY

Updated 45m ago

Michael Vick's continued efforts to help end dog-fighting will take him to Capitol Hill today.The Eagles quarterback will join Humane Society of the United States president Wayne Pacelle in announcing support for legislation that would penalize criminals who finance animal fighting or who bring children to such events as dogfights and cockfights.
The bill, H.R. 2492, was introduced by U.S. Reps. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) and Betty Sutton (D-Ohio). It's aimed at correcting the gap in federal law on animal fighting and aiding a crackdown on the crime, according to The Morning Call (http://www.mcall.com/sports/football/eagles/mc-vick-humane-society-cn-20110718,0,4649616.story).

NFL lockout has top draft pick tackling weeds

Birmingham, Alabama (CNN) -- Had this been any other year in the National Football League, rookie Marcell Dareus would probably have been a multimillionaire by now.


But because of the NFL work stoppage, the top defensive prospect, chosen third overall by the Buffalo Bills this year, does not draw an NFL-sized paycheck -- or one at all, for that matter.


Instead, the former University of Alabama standout awaits a resolution to the months-old lockout as the only landscaper in Birmingham with his own trading card.


"I'm really anxious about the season starting," said Dareus, 21, from atop his John Deere riding mower. "I can't wait to get to Buffalo to see the fans. I can't wait to get the whole feeling of the NFL. It's surreal."


There are signs that the lockout could be coming to an end soon; the league's 32 owners are scheduled to meet in Atlanta Thursday where they are expected to vote on a new labor agreement with the players union.

Meanwhile, Dareus, a 300-pound NFL lineman, is tasked with manicuring suburban lawns under the scrutinizing eye of Lester "Sarge" Reasor, a retired drill sergeant who barely rises to Dareus' massive forearms.


"This could have been edged up a little better right here," Reasor said, pointing to a patch of lawn.



The fact that Dareus stands on the cusp of fame as a professional football player hasn't softened Sarge's orders.


"I've got to roust him up about 6 o'clock every morning," he said. "(I get) him out of bed to get these lawns cut."


With seemingly every home in the neighborhood belonging to either a family member or friend of the Reasors', Dareus has an endless supply of lawns to cut and hedges to trim.

Sarge's boot-camp-style work schedule makes two-a-days at an NFL training camp seem like a walk in the park: After his wakeup call, Dareus' first task each day is to wash the lawnmower before heading out in the stifling Alabama heat.


"(Sarge) likes to wait until noon, when that sun is beaming straight on you," Dareus said.


"My job as a drill sergeant was to inspect and make sure the soldiers were doing what they were supposed to do," Reasor said. "I taught them how to be neat and clean and proficient."


It's something, Sarge says, he tries to instill in Dareus.


Though he gently chides Dareus over his tidiness and weed-wacking acumen, the bond between the football star and the retired drill sergeant is unmistakably one of mutual respect and affection. And it is a relationship that they both needed at precisely the same moment in time.


The Reasor family, deeply involved in service to their community, took Marcell in when he was in high school after chronic illness left his mother ill-equipped to provide even the most basic of necessities for her seven children.


Sarge and his wife, Juanita, whose own children were grown, enjoyed having the gentle giant of a teenager in their empty nest.
The aging Sarge, with all of those lawns to cut, was thrilled with the live-in help.


"God sent (Marcell and his brothers) right here in the nick of time to save me," said Sarge, whom Dareus refers to as his godfather.


Dareus' mother passed away last year before getting to see her son realize his dream of being drafted into the National Football League.


Before she did, however, she entrusted Sarge with fulfilling a dream of her own: for Dareus to graduate from college.


Though he may have left Tuscaloosa for Buffalo, Dareus hopes to graduate by December with the help of online courses.


It's something that would serve him well if there were no NFL.
But Dareus isn't thinking about the lockout. He's thinking about the place he wants to be the most: the football field.


"I really can't wait. I'm just anxious to get back on the field."
The thoughts of the field below him and the man who tends to it also remain close.


"My godfather hates crabgrass. Hates it," Dareus said. "I'm going to buy him the best crabgrass killer money can buy."

Well, at least he has a job. The good thing is that he'll be swimming in money soon.
