Why your cable provider has you by the you-know-whats

The cable/broadband industry doesn’t give a f@#k about what you think. They don’t give a f@#k about what I think. They don’t give a f@#k about what the president thinks. They stick their pompous middle fingers up to all of us when we even so much as hint at detracting from this oligopoly empire. Continue Reading

Trying to get content out to you guys semi-frequently.

Went to the Wolves-Suns game about three days ago or so when I last posted, Wolves throttled them by 30 points. Took a limo to the game with the homies, shout out to 952limos.com

Is Andrew Wiggins elite or nah? My argument is that he’s the most inefficient player in the history of the league, and that no one will ever win a championship with him on their team. Others would argue that he’s some demigod LeBron offspring who deserves to be handed all of the superstar calls that he’s already receiving.

What does he do well? He doesn’t pass, he doesn’t rebound, he doesn’t even freaking shoot effectively… WHAT DOES THE GUY DO??? We’re talking about a assist/turnover ratio of 1.6/2.3… Are those superstar numbers? Hardly. He’s a good article by a homer Wolves site, Canis Hoopus, on him.

Wowza. Today was insane. First of all, we almost saw the second biggest comeback in NFL postseason history.

The Panthers (of the Carolina variety) were up by 31 against the Seahawks and Russell Wilson. Until all of the sudden they were down one possession and threatening to tie the game back up. Luckily (for my playoff picks), the Panthers ended up locking up the game and advancing to the NFC championship game against the Cardinals (I have the Cards winning that game, and then losing to the Pats in the Super Bowl.)

What we thought was a great game, was one-upped in the later-afternoon game between the Steelers and Broncos. In the one game that I got wrong out of the four; the Steelers watched a sure-fire victory slip out of their hands after a late Fitzgerald Toussaint fumble that was recovered and then converted to a touchdown by the Broncos.

Welcome to RedTen!

Let’s get to it, shall we?

At the time of writing this, the Steelers and Bengals are knotted up at goose eggs with 5:56 left in the second quarter. Yes, we’re talking AFC playoffs (Wildcard round to be more specific). But that’s not what I want to talk about. What I want to talk about, is the worst day of Brian Hoyer’s life.

The 30 year-old from Lakewood, Ohio lost today’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, pretty much single-handedly. From the game’s first play, a 106 yard kick-off return by Knile Davis of the Chiefs, we knew the Texans and their bald (maybe shaven..(?)) Quarterback were in for a–well, let’s just say a “fun” afternoon. The “fun” that ensued however, was much to the chagrin of everyone bearing the last name “Hoyer” (or first name “Brian” for that matter).

It wasn’t the five turnovers committed by the balding assailant, it wasn’t the 60 passing yards in the first half. Neigh. It was the boos, raining furiously down upon the field as Hoyer and the Texans ran to the locker room (somehow) only down 13-0. From there, it seemed a Brandon “Weedman” Weeden appearance was imminent.

“Yeah, about that…” -HC Bill O’Brien

As a fan and football appreciatist, it was astounding to see Hoyer sauntering back onto the field at the beginning of the second half. A man–whose three first-half interceptions were quite visible in the bags under his eyes–that just should not have been out on the field.

The question begs asking: “Why would the Texans put themselves in this situation?”

Excellent question.

A team that held the number one overall pick of 2014, the Texans should’ve never been able to have been this hung-out-to-dry and shallow at the quarterback position. Clowney was a mistake. He should not have been taken first overall by Houston. Not after countless questions about his work ethic and motor, things that have rendered him virtually useless at the NFL level. A year where Teddy Bridgewater was taken with the final pick of the first round, and where Derek Carr was taken in the middle of the second… Coming away with nothing more to show than an entitled, unmotivated defensive end is simply unacceptable.

Not all is dead in Houston. They still have the best defender in the world, J.J. Watt. They still have (debatably) the best receiver in the league, Deandre Hopkins. And they have a plethora of other young, talented players that make up the nucleus of the AFC South team.
