BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK Sports Shorts Take 27...G2 of the POTOMAC 2-Pack shutouts REDBIRDS....MIGGY goes YARD as TIGERS take Game 1 vs SOUTH SIDERS...O's Shhhhhhh BRONX ZOO be Quiet

Gio Gonzalez aka G2 goes all 9 from the Bump as the Nats score more the enough Runs for them to take Game2 of the Four Game Set . G2 scattered 5 Hits in 9m Innings and walked 3 while Whiffing 8 to improve his 2012 Campaign to 17-7 on the Year and lower his Era to 3.10. The Nats scored 2 in the 1st and a Huge Crooked Number in the 4th Inning and Two More Cooked Numbers in Two more Innings to cruise 10-0. The Redbirds with the loss and the Buccos Losing in Beer Town only might lose ground to the Dodgers who are losing in their Game also.

The Detroit Tigers get a Bomb from Miggy Cabrera and a 3-Run 7th Inning to beat the Pale Hose and  now move within 2 Games of the Chi Sox with Verlander and Scherzer still going to the Bump. The Sox were in good shape early with and took a 4-3 Lead in their Top Half of the 6th Inning only to relinquish that crooked 3 Run 7th Inning.

O's RHP Miguel Gonzalez went 7 strong Innings allowing Only 4 Hits and walking 1 while Striking out 9 Yanks in the Orioles Dominant 6-1 Win. The Yanks get their Lone Run in the Bottom of the Ninth on a Granderson Solo Shot. As for the Os not being a Serious Threat to the Bronx Bombers. Ok...keep watching...as the BRONX ZOO Plot thickens and SOS for some Starting Pitching or Andy Pettite.  

FALL SATURDAY'S Week ...Part 3...MAIZE and BLUE and ROLL TIDE in Big D highlights Saturday's Full Slate of Games....Coach HOKE and Coach SABAN meet in BIG D....can the WOLVERINES Defensive Front handle arguably the Nations Best OFFENSIVE Line led by BAMA's C BARRETT JONES

The War of Attrition will be on Tap Saturday in Jerry Jones' Cowboys Complex and the Story lines are building in the Wrong Direction for the Wolverines. Top RB and Top DE for Michigan didn't make the Trip to due to some Off the Field Indiscretions to say the least and the Load falls even more on QB and 2012 Heisman Candidate Denard Robinson.

The Tide are coming in as Defending National Champions and a Plethora of Talented Players including 3 Pre Season All-Americans in Backers Nico Johnson and CJ Mosely along with OT/OG/C Barrett Jones who is also a Academic All-American 2 Years running.

The Tide also have experience at QB as Junior AJ McCarron will start his 2nd Full Season as Bama Signal-Caller and will be joined by RB Eddie Lacy. On the Outside WR Kevin Norwood and TE Kelly Johnson have the Experience.

The Tide will make their Impact on Defense like they do every Season and the Backers are two of the Best in the US in the aforementioned Mosely and Johnson. Also look for Junior DB Dee Milner, who started as a True Freshman, to go with JUCO DB Deion Belue. Senior Safety Robert Lester is the Leader at Safety and watch these True Freshman...SS Landon Collins (#1 Safety in the US in HS in 2012 from Louisiana), LBs Denzel Devall and Reggie Ragland, and CB Geno Smith.

The Tide will try to win the Game Up Front and then the Skilled Players do the Cleanup and the Wolverines have to be ready.

The Wolverines down their Top Running Back will still have to show they can Pass the Pigskin and that is QB Denard Robinson's Achilles Heel. Now they have to rely on SR Vincent Smith along with  Sophomore RB Thomas Rawls and Freshman RB Justice Hayes.

On the Outside Robinson has All Big-Ten Selection Roy Roundtree and Jeremy Gallon to lean on. The O-Line is led by All-American Candidate OT Taylor Lewan.

The Wolverines Defense was way better than the Rich Rod Version and they will be even better with a Full Year under the Belt in Hoke's System. Look for DT Will Campbell to anchor an inexperienced Front against the Nations perhaps Best Offensive Line.  Safety Jordan Kovacs to lead the Defesnive Charge with Senior CB J.T. Floyd.

The Wolverines know if they cannot control the Line of Scrimmage it will be a Long Night no matter what they do.  Bama's Staple is Getting Ahead in the game and Pounding the Pigskin on the Ground along with a Blitzing Downhill Defense.

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #120...REDBIRDS trying to stay in the NL WILD CARD Shotgun have their work cut out...4 on the POTOMAC with the NL EAST leading NATS and an L already Last Night...REDBIRDS @ NATS Preview with BUCCOS and BOYS in BLUE watching closely

St. Louis Cardinals don't look at the Scoreboard look at the Calendar an it will be September 1st Tomorrow and you have a 1/2 Game Lead on the Buccos and a 1 1/2 lead on the Boys in Blue in the NL Wild Card but first is first escaping the Potomac 2-Pack in S2 and G2...Strasburg and Gonzalez.

Yes the Redbirds lost Last Night and yes they face G2 today with Zimmerman in the Middle with a Sunday vs S2 and good luck Redbirds. Meanwhile the Nats are trying to catch the Reds for the Best Record on the Senior Circuit and in the Bigs for Winning Time Purposes as well as stave off the Braves. The Buccos gain a 1/2 Game as they were Idle last night and have a 3-Game Set at the Brew Crew. The Dodgers already had a Setback as they lose 2-0 with their Ace Kershaw on the Hill and they have a 4-Game Set with the D-Backs.

With the Redbirds losing Last Night 8-1 to the Nats and a 4-Game Set and Game #2 Tonight let's break it down:

August 31, 2012
STL Wainright (13-10) vs WAS G2 (16-7) 7:05PM ET

September 1, 2012
STL Lohse (14-2) vs WAS Zimmerman (9-8) 4:05PM ET

September 2 2012
STL Westbrook (13-10) vs WAS S2 (15-6) 1:35PM ET

The Redbirds have their Top 3 Arms going as Skip McCarthy has it lined up the Right Way but that 1st loss was Crucial and now they have Ace Wainright going against Gio Gonzalez Tonight to get them back on the Winning Track.

Game 3 the Redbirds have the Edge as Lohse has been the Real Redbirds Ace and comes in at 14-2 with a sparkling 2.64 ERA and a 3.7 to 1 K to BB Ratio.

Game 4 the Redbirds will throw Bulldog Westbrook vs the Nats and the Right Hand of their Double-Barreled Aces Stephen Strasburg and unfortunately for the Redbirds that S2 Innings Count couldn't come quick enough.

The Redbirds will have watchers in the Buccos from Milwaukee and on the West Coast from Chavez Ravine and the Boys in Blue. The Dodgers hosting the D-Backs who are not out of the NL West Picture yet.

A QB DRIVEN League..the 2012 AFC PLayoffs Results...the STEELERS and PATRIOTS have a Bye Week...but who gets in the WILD CARD....RAVENS, BENGALS, or CHIEFS?...and Who gets the LAMAR HUNT Trophy?

The 2012 AFC Predictions are set and the Division Winners with the Best Records (in this case the Steelers and Patriots) will have a Bye Week on Wild Card Weekend which is the 1st Weekend.

The Other Division Winners were the Broncos at 11-5 and the Texans at 10-6 as they both Host the Wild Card Games. Just like last Season Both AFC North Teams Ravens and Bengals get into Winning Time as the AFC West Chiefs lose the Tiebreaker vs the Bengals.

Steelers win the Home Field Advantage throughout after winning the Tiebreaker vs Pats.

AFC Wild Card Weekend

Ravens @ Texans      Winner Texans
Bengals @ Broncos    Winner Broncos

AFC Divisional Weekend

Texans @ Steelers Winner Steelers
Broncos @ Pats Winner Broncos

AFC Championship Game

Orange Crush @ Steel Curtain

AFC Winner Pittsburgh STEELERS

Super Bowl 47 AFC Team STEELERS

Texans get payback from losing in the Divisional last year in Charm City. The Broncos and Peyton go on Cruise Control vs Depleted Bengals.

The Texans Schaub gets Bottled-Up as the Steelers D overwhelms the Texans D and RB Arian Foster. Big Ben and the New Offense continue to Roll over Opponents. Peyton vs Tom in a Classic and in the End the Pats D isn't better than the Broncos D and Peyton makes enough Plays to beat Tom and the Pats in Foxboro.

Manning comes out Firing but the Running Game goes South and Steelers New Coordinator Todd Haley's Familiarity with the Orange Crush makes the Steelers Offense look even more Dynamic and the Steelers take down the FG Posts on their Way to Super Bowl 47.

You believe that Story you should talk to the Sunday Football Gods Last Night along with the late Great Nostradamus. The most interesting Part of the Conversation was Nostradamus said the Team that played in the Last Batman that will be the Stadium the Lamar Hunt Trophy will land for the Home Team.  

  

A QB DRIVEN League...2012 AFC North Predictions...the STEELERS are getting OLD and have a NEW Offense...PURPLE BROWNS have been anointed as AFC North's Royalty...BENGALS looking on the UP..and still MISTAKES on the LAKE in the DAWG Pound

Some of you AFC North Pundits out there need to look really close when talking about the Age of the Steelers and yes they have Key Players up there but they have more than Quality Depth that will have to play Big and under Lead Man Tomlin they usually do.

The Ravens are as Talented as anyone in the AFC and no one has mentioned them getting old. The Bengals have Strawberry Passion Fruit Dalton at QB and Monsters on the Outside in WR AJ Green. Expectations in the Jungle and we will see how they deal with them. The Browns might have to go get Ohio State QB and Huber Heights, Ohio Wayne HS Grad Braxton Miller to QB in the Dawg Pound. And when he enters the Game the Loud Speakers playing Beyonce, " Let me UpGrade Ya"

Order of Finish in the AFC North:

Steelers 12-4
Ravens 10-6
Bengals 10-6
Browns 2-14

STEELERS: They are still loaded with Young and Talented Pieces around the Vets. The O-Line was looking better until the Puget Sound Bully David DeCastro went down but they still looked Improved. The New Offense looks way more Explosive than then Old One with a Scat Back in Rook Chris Rainey looking to do Damage. Then there is Cash Money at the WR Corps (Da Kid, Tone 2.0, and Go Go Sanders) with a Veteran Sprinkle of Jerricho Cotchery. The Defense is led by MLB Larry Foote and a Host of Vets with the Youth Movement in Ziggy, lil Ironhead, My Worilds, Sylvester the Backer, Keenan Island, Big McLendon, and Mount Ta'amu among others and get use to hearing those names. The Steelers will still be at the Top of the North and a Team to beat in the AFC.

    
PURPLE BROWNS: The Ravens have been anointed as Purple Browns Coach John Harbaugh said Ordinary Joe arrived after they Beat the Steelers Twice Last Seas. Every Season takes on a whole New Meaning on Sunday this isn't the SEC or ACC. Can the Ravens D be a Huge Factor until T-Sizzle come back? Ray Rice gets his New Deal and Flacco's will be coming. Do they have enough on the Outside with an Aging Boldin and a One-Trick Pony in Torrey Smith. They did add former Texans Dancing Machine Jacoby Jones. The Defense will still be Manned in the Middle by Ngata and Mount Cody but the D-Ends will have to grow Up in a hurry. They don't have to be T-Sizzle but they need to more than average. Ray Lewis leads the Backers with Sunday 2nd Best Backstop in Ed. Edd, and Eddy Reed...and yes if you ask QBs it looks like there is Three Reed's on the Back End. The Ravens will get to Winning Time its just a Matter of How they get there.

BENGALS: The Bengals have put themselves right into a Position if one of the Big Two fall as most Analysts are picking the Steelers to get 3rd in the AFC North. We will see about that but the Bengals are explosive on the Outside but the Run Game will be questioned. Losing DE Carlos Dunlap hurts the D a little but that is their Strong Suit led by DT Geno Atkins. New Kirkpatrick Island will be unveiled and the Backers are Legit led by Rey Mualuaga. The RB are led by the Law Firm on the Ohio Benjarvus Green-Ellis and just like his Name you would hope being for Bengals Fans he can produce that long as well. They Bengals have arrived but they have the Toughest Schedule out of any of the Top 3 in the North and then you count the Steelers and Ravens Twice each..Ouch!

BROWNS: QB Brandon Weeden, QB Braxton Miller (playing a Cut Free Agent from the Waterboy Bobby Bouche) QB Colt McCoy, QB Tim Couch, QB Seneca Wallace aka Mr. PB & J, QB Thaddeus Lewis. The NCAA gave Miller a Shot although No Game Checks as he keeps his Amatuer Status. The Browns have MLB D'Qwell Jackson, WR Mohammed Massaquoi, Joe Haden Island, and Mike Holmgren. Add all that up that is 2-14. Any Questions, Comments, or Concerns.    

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #119....JUNIOR Circuit DRAMA...HEAD 2 HEAD Battles...PALE HOSE @ COMERICA ...O's @ BRONX Zoo

If your going to make up ground immediately in the Standings Team must Win their Head to Head Match Ups. And look what the Show Gods have brought us this Weekend Head to Head Match Ups to see who wants the AL Central and AL East the most.

The Pale Hose of Chi City travel to D-Town and Comerica Park for a 3-Game Set as they are 1 and 2 in the AL Central. Good thing for the Sox is that they are 3 Full Games up on the Tigers. The Good Thing for the Tigers if they can Sweep the Pale Hose they will be Tied an if they get 2 of 3 they will be 2 back or is the ladder a Bad thing for the Tigers moving Forward. If the Pale Hose Sweep it would be a 6 Game Lead so it is not Fools Gold but Show Gold no matter how you look at it.

The Orioles have been waiting for this opportunity since the last time they Played the Bombers and the Bombers have been struggling of late with Good Solid Starting Pitching. The O's come in Only 3 Full Game behind the Bombers and they can Holes in the Bombers Ship but can they open those Holes even more will be the 3-Game Set Question.

AL Games of the Weekend Sets is sponsored by you Hope Getaway Day doesn't include a Broom and Dust Pan on the Oppositions Behalf.  

Friday August 31, 2012
BAL Gonzalez (5-3) vs NYY Kuroda (12-9) 7:05PM ET

CWS Peavy (9-9) vs DET Fister (7-8) 7:05PM ET

Saturday September 1, 2012
BAL Chen (12-7) vs NYY Garcia (7-5) 1:05PM ET

CWS Liriano (5-10) vs DET Scherzer (14-6) 7:05PM ET

Sunday September 2. 2012
BAL TBD vs NYY Phelps (3-4) 1:05PM ET

CWS Sale (15-5) vs DET Verlander (12-7) 8:06PM ET on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball

O's and Bombers are trying to make it Happen with the the Middle of their Rotations for the Weekend. The Interesting thing to see is if the O's keep their composure under the immense Pressure the Bronx Zoo can bring knowing it is meaningful September Baseball.

The Pale Hose and Tigers are bringing their Top Guns and unfortunately for the White Sox Skip Jim Leyland has his Horses lined up for Saturday and Sunday just in case we get the W on Friday sleep well White Sox with Scherzer and Verlander on Deck and in the Hole for Saturday and Sunday. The Pale Hose also come with their Aces in Peavy Friday Night and Sale vs Verlander on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball and that will be fun especially if its the Rubber Match.  

AL Drama and it is September in the Show if your Scared call the Farm to come get you.

A QB DRIVEN League...2012 AFC West Predictions..YES I am tired of hearing it also but he is a 4-Time AP NFL MVP...can anyone Stop PEYTON'S Place...ORANGE CRUSH Edition...from getting the AFC WEST Throne?

I know it seems like "As the World Turns" when they make a Move you know players like Terrific Tom Foxboro, A-Rog of Lambeau Leap, Brees of NOLA, and now Peyton Manning in his New Duds...the Orange Crush Mile High. Brace yourself AFC West Fans as #18 in Orange and Navy comes to your Venue it is all about Him and nothing else. Its not your Fault blame it on the Media and Writers like the Bluedude for Bluedude Sportstalk for keeping him in the News as much as the Sun and Moon is to Planet Earth.

Did I mention the Other 3 Signal-Callers in the AFC Wast like Philip of the Murph, Matt of Arrowhead, and Carson of the Black Hole...not a bad Group Huh? Manning will be better than all of these QBs in 2012 and it will not be close. Although Philip lost Vincent Jackson he gained Bobby Meacham for what it is Worth. Cassell has D-Bowe who is in a Contract Year like the Steelers WR Mike Wallace and looking at MEGAtron Money and I know everyone thinks the Going Rate for 1K Yard WR is $100 Plus Million. Then there is Carson throwing to Darius Heyward-Bey...Who? Silver and Black I know who he is but if your not a Silver and Black Backer you would think he was a Draft or Rookie Find in the Late Rounds.

Order of Finish of the AFC West:

Broncos 11-5
Chiefs 10-6
Bolts 7-9
Raiders 5-11

BOLTS: A Major Loss was Ryan Matthews at Running Back and now the Offense is solely on Mr. Rivers. Gone is the aforementioned WR Vincent Jackson and in is Former Saints WR Bobby Meacham along with Bolts Holdover WR Malcolm Floyd and Former Broncos WR Eddie Royal. They do have a rejuvenated Antonio Gates and that will help but how many time scan Rivers go to Him when they Bracket Gates at almost every rip. The Defense will be what it always is better than average and a Play or two away from doing Damage in a Good way or Bad. Veterans are at Linebacker as they are Young up front with Cory Liuget. Weddle and Jammer are still the Keys on the Back End and at Corner. There will be work to do at the Murph for 2012.

RAIDERS: They need and will get a Heavy Dose if he can stay healthy in RB Run D McFadden and he is the Truth when healthy. WR will be a Big Issue but they looked Energized in Camp and in Pre Season Games as the Whole Face of the Organization changes. The Defense has never been a Problem and will be their Strong Suit again led by somewhat still Dominant DT Richard Seymour of Between the Hedges Fame of UGA Football. McClain is a Good solid MLB and the Safeties in Huff and Branch are a really good Duo. It will be up to Carson and the Offense and if they can Generate enough Good Offense to give the Silver and Black a Good Shot on every Sunday. That "Commitment to Excellence" has to get back in the Black Hole sooner rather than later.

BRONCOS: Ok you know about Peyton's Place but they have Dynamic Pieces in Key Areas like WR Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas along with RB Willis McGahee to go along with Peyton's Offensive Prowess. They look the Part as the Pre Season wind down and the Defense....well it was good and in 2011 it will be better. With Bookends in Elvis Dumervil and 2nd-Year Sensation Von Miller along with Captain and MLB D.J. Williams the Broncos Defense will be good up front. The Issue they have it can be a real Big Issue is their Safeties in Mike Adams and Rahim Moore. They have Champ Island but the Back End has to also be on the Same page for that Defense to be Complete. Peyton brings them a Championship Pedigree.

CHIEFS: Romeo Crenell had a Shot in Cleveland as Lead Man and it didn't get done. He goes back to where he made his name in Foxboro to D-Coordinator and the Chiefs turn it around on that side of the Ball. Haley gets Fired and Crenell takes the Reins and the Chiefs look like they bought in. We are going to find out f all of that was Fools Gold here soon. They need a Healthy RB in Jamaal Charles (coming of ACL Injury in Week 2 in 2011) and a Happy and Productive D-Bowe at WR...in Dwayne Bowe. QB Matt Cassell's Relationship soured with then Chiefs Lead Man Todd Haley but he is Gone now no more excuses for Cassell. The Defense up front will be good and Tamba Hali has a Game Suspension coming up but its 1 Game. Derrick Johnson at MLB is Pro Bowl Caliber and the Back End gets SS Eric Berry back off of an ACL Injury as well to go with a Top 3 Island on Sunday in Brandon Flowers of Beamer Ball Blacksburg.  For the Chiefs its all in front of them to contend with the Bolts and Broncos and they have more than enough talent.                

   






FALL SATURDAY'S Week 1...Part 2...The BLUE TURF BOYZ of BOISE State travel to BEAST LANSING to take on SPARTY on Friday August 31, 2012

The Broncos loose a Host of Players including 51-4 in his Career at Boise in QB Kellen Moore and RB Doug Martin as well as Shea McClellin who was a 1st Round Draft Pick for the Monsters of the Midway the Chicago Bears.

On the Flip Side of the Green Side a Talented Bunch in East Lansing lost Key Players as well included QB Kirk Cousins who was Drafted in the 4th Round by the 'Skins. They also lose a Key Player off the D-Line in DT and 2nd Round Pick Jerel Worthy of the Packers.

Both Teams come are in the Top 25 and picked to Finish at the Top of their Conferences.

Boise State BRONCOS: QB Joe Southwick has RB Drew Wright and WR Mitch Burroughs and they will need to all make Plays accordingly vs a Stout Sparty Defense. The Broncos Defense is also their Strength as they have arguably one of the best Secondaries on the West Coast in Major College Football in CB Jamar Taylor, CB Ebenezer Makinde, and SS Qualyon Ewing-Burton. They Broncos are use to Playing the Big Boys as they are Big Boys also on the Road in an Hostile Environment in Early September. They must establish Early with the Spartans that this will be a Battle or they will get Blown Out of East Lansing Michigan.  

Michigan State SPARTANS: They must protect New QB Andrew Maxwell and a good way to get him comfortable is for Sparty to go Ground Game exclusively with RB Le'Veon Bell who will be a High Draft Pick when he comes out. WR Bennie Fowler also has to make Plays down field for his New QB.

The Spartans also return 13 Starters back (8 on Defense) from Last Year's Team led by DT Will Gholston who will be a 1st Round Pick on Sunday in 2013. The Spartans have all the Experience on the Defensive Side of the Pigkin and they also have 6 Pre Season All-Big Ten Selections on D. LBs Max Bullough and Denicos Allen with CB Johnny Adams and Safety Isaiah Lewis.

Sparty has the Biggest Advantage on the Field and they Game is in their House..Lookout Broncos.

Game Time 8PM ET on ESPN

A QB DRIVEN League..2012 AFC South Predictions...Are the JAGS, BLUE SWAGGER, and the MUSIC CITY Tackle Football Club ready to hand over the REINS to the TEXANS?...Expectations and Time will be the Barometers

The AFC South lost Peyton Manning Two Seasons ago and the Texans finally got over the Hump and took Full Advantage of the Colts lost and the Void left in the AFC South. Now what will the Texans do with that word Expectations as they are picked by many to go Deep into the AFC Tourney to Super Bowl 47. Titans might have a Fresh to Death CJ28 behind QB Locker, Colts have LUCK at QB in Andrew Luck and New 3-4 Defense, and the Jags have no Pocket Hercules but they have the Biggest Cocktail Party in the World coming in October with the 'Dawgs and Gators...AFC South Football...with the Best Team in Texas...dem' Reliant Energy Boyz.    

Order of Finish of the AFC South:

Texans 10-6
Titans 9-7
Colts 8-8
Jags 3-13

TEXANS: The Texans should be picked for the Simple Fact they have an Explosive Offense led by RB Arian Foster and WR Andre 305 along with really Good and Solid QB in Matt Schaub. The AFC South Title Question of 2012 is will that 3-4 Defense led by D-Coordinator Wade Phillips, who by the Way is an excellent Coordinator Only, and DE J.J. Watt and Heat Seeking Missile Brian Cushing on Flint stone Vitamins be the Same D from 2011? Expectations and Time will be that Barometer. Texans did Trade MLB and Defensive Leader DeMeco Ryans in the Off-Season to the Bird Gang Philly and will that have an Effect on the D?

JAGS: They have the Best Player not even in Camp in somewhere in LA where he resides in the Off-Season in Mo Jones-Drew aka Pocket Hercules. Without him more of a Load falls on 2nd Year QB Blaine Gabbert who was once on the Same Pedestal as one Cam Newton and that's why they are called NFL Analyst and One should draw your Conclusion about your Team especially.  The did Draft WR Justin Blackmon who must stay from happy Hours and Water Holes in J'Ville. The D is led by MLB Paul Posluzsny and CB Rashean Mathis and Safety Dawan Landry. If Jones-Drew doesn't arrive in J'Ville soon the Jags Fans need to prepare themselves for another Laugher.

COLTS: Ok..no Peyton Manning they Tank the Season to the Dismay of very Few as they get the #1 Pick in If he has IT, and Looks like IT, and carries Himself like IT....well Circle City Tackle Football Fans he is IT. Andrew Luck is the Truth and looks beyond his Years and that Defense will also be tested as they move to a 3-4 with Freeney and Mathis playing in Space at Times. If the Colts can get a Good Defense and Run the Pigskin sufficiently they will be a Surprise in the NFL. Luck ha Talent at the Skilled Positions and still has Reggie Wayne. What won't be surprising is Luck torches a Few Sunday Ball Clubs.

TITANS: They are moving forward with QB Jake Locker as well they should be at that High of a Pick in the 2011 Sunday Draft. He has Mobility and Dangerous on the Move. A Healthy CJ28 with Money Bags already in Tow will help Locker even more. The Wide Outs are in Question with WR Kenny Britt looking as though he is the Outlaw and the Commish will be sending him a Round trip Airfare to Sunday League Offices and a Message to Britt. Now the Defense is the Biggest Question and the Titans have some Pieces including Pro Bowl Caliber Safety Michael Griffin. If CJ28 can run the Pigskin and get back to 90% CJ before Duffel Bags...the Titans will also be a Factor in the AFC an in the South.

2012 Playoff Team TEXANS

A QB DRIVEN LEAGUE....2012 AFC East Predictions...Can anyone beat the PATS and QB Tom?...JETS in disarray...BISON City look like..well...AQUA BOYZ 305 go with TANNEYHILL...and World Champion HEAT start Season around Halloween.

The AFC East will once again belong to the New England Patriots until someone in that Division shows me otherwise. They had one of the Top Drafts in 2012, they still have QB Brady, and led by Belichek. Why didn't Belichek do his Magic in Cleveland I always wonder since Analysts call him the G.O.A.T. which is so far from the Truth.

Order of Finish in the AFC East:

1. Pats 12-4
2. Bison City 9-7
3. J-E-T-S 8-8
4. Aqua Boyz 4-12

PATS: Loaded at the TE and WR Position with a Stevan Ridley leading the Running Backs. The O-Line has been a Topic of Conversation for the Pats all Pre Season and will thy be able to get that Unit to Play Better before they Open up the Season.

BISON City: They are much improved and I like what they did on Defense and they added a Corner in Gilmore and DE/OLB Super Mario Williams. The Offense will feature RB Fred Jackson and WR Stevie Johnson but can they hold up the Whole Season and play at the Level they play at Sometimes will be the Question. The Bills have a Tendency to play in Stretched and they have to learn to put a Season together.

J-E-T-S: They look really good in the Paper and on Sound Bites. They have all the Makings of being one of the Best ion the AFC and then the Game are played. Can you win with a 2-Headed Monster at QB? Can the Defense get back to what it was when they ran off Back to Back AFC Championship Games? Rex has been writing Checks that continue to Bounce all over NYC and the NY Jets Police have a Keen Eye on hi 2012 Performance.

AQUA Boyz: They get rid of Chad or #85 didn't realize they didn't want him anyway. They trade CB Vontae Davis to the Colts and what does Coach Philbin want his Guys on the Team that he has a Hand in Drafting? QB Tanneyhill was picked High Enough where if your going to lose A lot play him and see if he can mature through Baptism by Fire. The Phins look like they will take another Step back and the World Champion Heat start their Season around Halloween..BOO!

2012 Playoff Team PATS              

SQUEEZE the ORANGE with a CONTRACT of "There is ONLY TWO to ever do it in the LOGO"...and One of the Two won't do the Feat until the 2013-14 NBA SEASON....AIR JORDAN you have company.

Since we have been on the Idea of NBA Contracts and Overall Combined Salaries. The Bluedude wanted to pull one more Idea out of his Arsenal. Has there ever been an NBA Player to make $30 plus Million in One Season and even Two Seasons?  Names that come to mind are the Big Ticket, the Black Mamba, and SHAQ.

Well the News will shock you since the Salaries just started to get out of Hand when T'Wolves Owner Glenn Taylor gave the Big Ticket Kevin Garnett that Massive Contract that put NBA Salaries for Start well into $100 Million. I remember back in 1995-96 one Milwaukee Bucks Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson wanted to be the First $100 Million Man and he didn't get close.

This brings us to the Only Players to make $30 Million in One NBA Season and the Only Player to ever get back to back $30 Million Dollar Contracts and he did it in Singled-Out Deals signed in Las Vegas, Nevada where the Team and its Brass had top fly out there to meet him on both occasions.  

The Top 5 All-Time NBA One Season Salaries is sponsored by...and you thought the Shaq, Kobe, and Garnett Salaries were in Uncharted Territories and just like the Player who did the Back to Back $30 Million Deals he also revolutionized the Shoe Game as well.

Top Six 1-YEAR NBA Salaries of All-Time

1. AIR JORDAN $33,140,000 (1997-98) Bulls

The CBA that was cut back when Shaq, Kobe, and KG had Huge Escalators and there was in Annual Increase on Salaries. The Bigger the Deal the more the Salary increased. Also with KG (#1 Overall All-Time in NBA), Shaq (#2 All-Time), and Kobe (# All-Time).

Air Jordan negotiated both of his Deals in Sin City with Bulls Owner Jerry Reinsdorf and Others in Tow. Yes they were Landmark Deals but Air Jordan only made (including Wizards 2-Year Salary) a combined $90 Plus Million for his Career.  Jordan's Highest Salary before that was the 2003-05 Season with the Bulls of course for $4 Million per Season.

The Salaries have changed dramatically and Jordan received his Two Mega Deals between 1996-1998 when KG, Kobe, and Shaq were all Playing in their Younger Days at the Time. Shaq was at $12.8 Million in 1996-97, KG was at $1.66 Million and in his 2nd Year, and Kobe was at 1.02 Million in his Rookie Year in the Logo. Those were the Salaries of he 3 Highest Combined Player Salaries of All-Time when Air Jordan received his first of Two $%30 Million Deals from the Bulls.

PANTHERS @ STEELERS 7PM ET....Thursday August 30, 2012 HEINZ Field


A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #118....PALE HOSE get a much-needed W vs O's...RAYS finally beat RANGERS....BUCCOS take 2 of 3 vs REDBIRDS

A Four-Game Set at Camden Yards and the Pale Hose had lost the first 2 Games but come up big in Game 3 with a convincing 8-1 Win. The Tigers lose again and drop to 3 Full Games behind the South Siders who are trying to get a little breathing room over the Tigers.

The O's lose but get some help from the Bombers as they also lose to the 'Jays 8-5 as they jump on Bombers Ace C.C. Sabathia. The Lead in the AL East is still 3.5 Games but the Yankees Pitching has to be a Major Concern with no where to get any help but Yanks LHP Andy Pettite back before late September.

Rays get a W after losing the 1st Two Games in Texas. A Good Sign for the rays is that Hot Corner Evan Longoria hits 2 Bombs as he tries to put the Rays on his Back for the Pennant Race. The Rangers lead the AL West by 4.5 over the Streaking A's who have won 5 in a row. Rays 4 Games back of the Yanks for the AL East and 1/2 Game back of the O's and A's for the AL Wild Card.

The Redbirds win the 1st game and go up 3 Full Games on the Buccos but to the Pirates Credit they come back and get Two Games and now trail the Cards by Only 1 Game for Shotgun Seat in the NL Wild Card.

It is out of the Question to ask the Redbirds or Buccos to catch the Reds as they lead both by 8 and 9 Games respectively. Moving Forward the Redbirds visit the Nats for 4 game Series and the Buccos head to Beer Town USA and have a 3-Game Set with the Brew Crew.

SQUEEZE the ORANGE....You know AIR JORDAN and MAGIC are not on the LIST....the TOP All-Time NBA SALARIES of All-Time...and just like the GAME has evolved so has the DIRECT DEPOSITS...Walking ATM's they are!

The NBA has changed from Arenas, Uniforms, Scooby Doos, Drinks, Towels, Dancers, Teams, Players, and most importantly the SALARIES which are Guaranteed and straight out of Control.

These Players are Top Shelf and they are Paid like such. Talking strictly Salary from their Respective Teams only not talking Endorsements and a few of them on this List have made at least an additional $50 - $100 Million.

The Top SALARIES of ALL-TIME in the Logo is sponsored by If your on this List I better not here anything about Troubled Finances...because that is a lot of Cashola...WOW!

1. Kevin Garnett aka the Big Ticket aka KG $328,562,398

2. Shaquille O'Neal aka Shaq Deisel aka SHAQ $292,198,327

3. Kobe Bryant aka the Black Mamba aka KB24 $279,738,062

9. Chris Webber aka C-WEBB $178,230,218

10. Paul Pierce aka P2 aka the TRUTH $169,486, 218

Yes that is some serious Dough and not that I am Glorifying any of this. It's just like Life the Evolution of Salaries have became bigger than the Game itself to a Point. Obviously every player on this List is under the Two or Three CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) Deals ago where there was no Salary Cap. And if your still active your Salary will still be under them Old CBA Rules.

FALL SATURDAY'S Week 1...Part 1...Opening Night for Major College Football August 30, 2012...the Top 10 game-'COCKS of South Carolina in Music City to play Host VANDY

The 2012 Major College Football Season kicks off with the Pre Season Top 10 'Cocks of South Carolina led by Ole Ball Coach Steve Spurrier traveling to Music City...Nashville, Tennessee to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores on ESPN Prime Time August 30, 2012.

Ask yourself why are the Gamecocks ranked so High before the season just a Few Players...and arguably some of the Best at their Respective Positions in the Country:

RB Marcus Lattimore: If it wasn't for a Knee Injury he was right there with 'Bama 1st Rounder Trent Richardson and Lattimore is a Better Receiver out of the Backfield. How well he comes back from that Knee Injury will Tell the Tale.

WR Ace Sanders: Yes he played 2nd Fiddle to 2012 2nd Round NFL Pick Alshon Jeffrey but he is a 1st Fiddle Guy. He will burst on then Scene especially in Ole Ball Coach's Pass 1st Offensive Attack. Barring any Major Setbacks Sanders will put up High Numbers in the SEC.

QB Conner Shaw: He played well as he played behind and in Front of the now gone Oft-Troubled QB Stephen Garcia. Shaw with a Full Off Season under his Belt and him knowing he is the Guy will be up to the Task and a Healthy Lattimore will also make things a lot easier for him.

OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney: As Good as Advertised and even better. He played Opposite of DE Melvin Ingram and for the most part Clowney never looked like a Freshman and he did look like an even better Ingram. Lookout for a Breakout Sophomore Season..All SEC and All-American in Year 2. Clowney was voted Preseason 1st Team All-SEC already.

CB Akeem Auguste: Pre Season All-SEC and another in a Long Line of Excellent Corners that have called "Cocks Nation" Home with Top 2012 NFL Draft Pick Stephon Gilmore and Texans Pro Bowler Jonathan Joseph to name a Few.

VANDY will counter with All-SEC Pre Season Pick and Running Back Zac Stacy. They also have Defensive Lineman Rob Lohr leading the Other SIde of the Pigskin.

Game Outlook: The Commodores will have to try to Slow Down the Lattimore and make QB Shaw beat them with his Arm and that is easier said than done. They also have to slow down a Fast and Athletic D led by of course True Soph. Jadeveon Clowney.

Ole Ball Coach Spurrier has his Best Team ever at South Carolina and they will not Disappoint at least on this Night....'Cocks cruise by 4 Touchdowns

Game Time 7PM ET ESPN

SUNDAY TALK...3 GAMES on TAP on HUMP DAY...PATS @ G-Men...AQUA Boyz 305 @ 'BOYS...and BUCS @ 'SKINS Previews....Rhythm and Continuity from 1st Teamers and Depth Chart Evaluations

The Long Sunday Pre Season is almost at a Conclusion and it is Time for some NFL Football. Six Teams will end their 2012 Pre Season and the Cuts will ensue right after as Teams need to get down to the 53-Man Roster before 9PM ET Friday August 31, 2012.

Three Games on Tap on this Hump Day August 29, 2012 and there will not be a whole lot of Starters playing in any of these unless the Position Battles are unsettled.

6PM ET NFL Network
PATS @ G-MEN : Both Teams will be avoiding too much time for Starters as the Pats will probably set the Key Guys and left the Depth Chart Play itself out. The Cuts have to be made and the Patriots are one of Teams a lot of Teams are Eyeing because of their Quality Depth. The G-Men on the Other Hand will not be playing a Host of Players including Key Players on D like Phillips, Rolle, J.P.P, Tuck, OSI, and Corner Webster. Watch for Belichek maybe to play his 1st Team Offense just to get a Rhythm going in the Wake of Last Weeks Terrible O-Line play at the Big Pirate Ship.

7PM ET NFL Red Zone and Local Listings
BUCS @ 'SKINS: RG3 needs some more Work but at the Risk of playing him too long could jeopardize his Opening Day Start even though Teams indirectly do not think like that it would be wise in this case to do so. The 'Skins are coming off of a Short Week as are the Bucs. The Bucs looked Fast and Aggressive vs the Pats last week and I know its Pre Season but New Lead Man Schiano definitely looks like everyone is buying in. The 'Skins have Key Injuries to Merriweather and Orakpo and look for other Key Defensive Players to Sit.  

830PM ET Red Zone and Local Listings
AQUA Boyz 305 vs 'BOYS: One the Boys and Dolphins need to end this quickly so the Field can be ready for 8PM ET Saturday September 1st for the Michigan vs Alabama.

The Dolphins need to get Tanneyhill more work and they also need to to see what their Defense needs to get back to respectability. The Trade of Corner Vontae Davis is a Shock among the Locker Room but they must not watch HBO's Hard Knocks. OT Jake Long sprained Knee is a Concern for Opening Day.

The 'Boys will not have Romo out there you would think but Jason Witten's Health is a real concern. The Cowboys Front 7 is a Top 5-8 on Sunday with Ware and Spencer on the Ends. Depth Chart Analysis will be in Full Effect and we all know Jerry Knows Talent....LOL.

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #117...with a Brass Meeting of "Are we being Fiscally Responsible from a WINNING on the FIELD Perspective"...the Division and Wild Card LEADERS in the SHOW Team Payrolls and Payroll Ranking out of 30 Teams

The Big Markets spend spend spend and the Little Markets have to be a lot more cautious on where they put every Dime and Penny for that matter. Is the Equation if you Spend more you get more at least from a Winning Perspective or not?

The 2012 Payrolls for the Division and Wild Leaders in the Show is sponsored by...The Decisions Teams make at the Top doesn't always pan out on the Diamond so watch who your giving them Checks to.

The AL Division and Wild Card Leaders w/Team Payroll Number
Note: Payroll Ranking out of 30 Teams in ( )

AL East BRONX BOMBERS $195,998,004 (1)
AL West RANGERS $120,510,975 (5)
AL Central PALE HOSE $$97,919,500 (11)

AL Wild Card (1a) ORIOLES $80,804,000 (18)
AL Wild Card (1b) ATHLETICS $49,137,500 (30)

The NL Division and Wild Card Leaders w/Team Payroll Number

NL East NATS $80,584,145 (19)
NL Central REDS $76,305,878 (21)
NL West GIGANTES $117,936,667 (7)

NL Wild Card (1) BRAVES $82,409,942 (16)
NL Wild Card (2) REDBIRDS $110,297,862 (9)

Out of the 10 Teams as of Right Now going to the Playoffs...Four are in the Top 10, Four are in the Median or close to and 2 are in the Bottom 1/3 of the Show.

One of the Teams in that Bottom 1/3 are the Cincinnati Reds who just miss the Median Payroll but also have the Best Record in the Show as we go to press at 79-52.

Both the Rangers and Bronx Bombers are in the Top 5 in Payroll so that would be Money well spent but if you ask the Brass of Both just winning the Division is Fools Gold as the Real Barometer is winning the Fall Classic 2012.    

Note: The Dodgers Payroll has jumped Considerably and would move right into that Top 5 and with my calculations right above the Halos at around $157 Million adding just the Overall Salary of A-Gon, Beckett, Punto, and Crawford.

The Reds, A's, Nats, Braves, and Orioles are getting a Bang for their Buck as they are all below the Median.

Total Payroll for 30 Teams in MLB is $2.862 Billion for 2012 with a Median Payroll of $95.4 Million for the 2012 Season.

Note: Team Payroll for 2012 from ESPN.go.com/mlb...the Calculations of Overall Payrolls for all 30 Teams and the Median calculated by the Bluedude for Bluedude Sportstalk.      

   

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #116...the O's go for the SWEEP on PALE HOSE....RANGERS ditto on RAYS...and no stoppin' the Swingin' A's

Don't look now Bronx Bombers the Orioles are right there to make it a "September to Remember" as they get within 3.5 Games of the AL East leading Bombers. The O's have been doing it with a Good Solid Mix of Pitching and Hitting. They have also beatin' the AL Central leading Pale Hose twice in a row and look to go for the Sweep Wednesday in Charm City's Camden Yards.

The Pale Hose on the Other Token get some help as they lose so does the AL Central 2nd Place Detroit Tigers. The Tigers get a No so Good Version of RHP and Ace Justin Verlander vs the Royals as Verlander gets lit up. The Pale Hose lead by 2 Full Games over the Tigers.

The Rays are not doing themselves any Justice by losing 4 in a Row, now 2 Full Games back of the AL Wild Card 2nd Seat, and are on the Verge of getting Swept by the AL West leading Rangers as Rookie Yu Darvish whiffs 10 Rays on his way to the Rangers Rookie Record for Strikeouts.

The Rangers have the 3rd Best Record in the Show and the Best Record in the AL as we head to the all important September Races for the Pennant. The Rays need to get Wednesday's Game as they are Only 5 Full Game back of the Shakin' and Stirred Bronx Bombers.

The Oakland Athletics are on another Streak as they have won their 10 out of 12 and they are also Tied for the lead in the AL Wild Card and up 2 Full Games. The surprising thing about the A's is that they are doing this with a reasonably Young Starting Rotation and No Names amongst a $55 Million Dollar Payroll. Tex and A-Rod of the Yankees are the A's Whole Payroll....Ouch!

No time for the Faint at Heart as Labor Day is coming which means you either Rise Up or Vacation Time...Fall Classic Tourney Time is near....    

LOGO WATCH #141 with a Hint of SHARK TANK and SHOTS FIRED...MAVS Owner Cuban says KIDD will not get his JERSEY retired in AAC 214...Hella COOL Mark!...it will go up in the BARCLAYS instead with Dr. J and PETRO among others...Don't forget about KIDD and NEW JERSEY DRIVE

See there is always Two Sides to a Story and this Story looks like, feed like, and will be written like @CAVSdan taking shots at King James with a different Twist.

You have already heard about a Week Ago on many Outlets that Cuban was stilled steamed about J-Kidd taking off the Gotham City instead of Kidd keeping his Promise to stay with the Mavs.

Loyalty (from Freedictionary.com)...states A Feeling of Allegiance....Endless Devotion

Professional Sports Loyalty (from the Bluedude)...as good as my Next Deal or Contract. I owe no one a D*mn Thing if I am Unrestricted...Nada.

Having said that did you see what the Mavs looked like after No D-Will 8 and Jet Terry as they went to the Nets and Green Team respectively. What's Player to do of Kidd's Caliber or Hall of Fame Credentials grab a Violin and stay on the Titanic and play until you see Dead People.

Kidd may have told him I will Stay and Word is Bond in another Arena but Professional Sports. I will tell you anything when your in front of me and if all the aforementioned Players Bolt ..I bolt. And Mavs Owner talking a Page out of Fathead Dan but Kidd had a Mavs Ankle Bracelet on like LeBrons Bracelet just in case he goes anywhere. ..Yeah you thought.

By the Way Kidd would look good up there in the Barclays with Dr. J, Buck Williams, and the Late "Petro" Petrovic among others right? Yes Kidd got his Ring with the Mavs but he did his Bet Work of a 1st Ballot Springfield Mass Career in the Meadowlands and Continental Airlines Arena. Led the Nets to Back 2 Back NBA Finals and got Players like R.J. and K-Mart takin' care of for life. Look at this One Stat Line of J-Kidd:

The 1st Ever NBA Player to have 15K Points, 10K Helpers (Assists) and 7K Boards (Rebounds) not to mention he is 3rd on the List for Made Money Balls behind only Miller Time...Gold Swagger's Reggie Miller and Jordan Brand and now Team White Hot's Sugar Ray Allen.

So if that Jersey doesn't get hung in Texas it should hung in Brooklyn (Nets) and even Phoenix (Suns). This is just another Case of Dudes with Cash always getting Their Way and when they Don't... "I'll Show Him Complex"...See you in Gotham City and Springfield Mass after that.

Too Sheezy is in the Building..."Blow the WHISTLE" and EAST BAY Stand Up!

MAKING NOISE Big Time in BIG D...Neion Deion Sanders or "PRIME TIME" goes "PRIME PREP Academy"...that's right a Prep School in Dallas and Fort Worth Texas and the 1st HOUSE that PRIME has Built since the GEORGIA Dome

2011 NFL Hall of Famer, Florida State Seminole Forever,  Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcon forever, and now forever etched in the Hearts and Minds of Young People that call Dallas, Texas Home.

With Grades K-12 and 1 to 1 Student to Computer Ratio....Prime Time Deion Sanders has went Space Age and in a long line of Popular Athletes,  like the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy in Detroit, Prime is using his Power, Fame, Charisma, and No How to embark on a Journey that will help young People on the Journey Called Life and not to mention there is Football and Basketball, and Baseball Program to Boot so that will have Prime's and one would think Under Armour's Mitts, Apparel, Signage, and Scooby Doos all over it. That is also a Credit to Deion and Under-Armour for taking the Time and Finances to get it done this way not knocking Prime or the Charm City Athletic Company in any way.

What does P.R.I.M.E. stand for other than Prime Time himself...P for Preparation, R for Reaffirmation, I for Innovation, M for Motivation, and E for Education. this is Prime Prep's Motto. The School also has a 1 to 1 Student to Computer ratio as each Student will have the cutting edge Prime Software in Each Student's Laptop to access even their Books.

We always talk about How Athletes don't do enough or they don't do anything at all. To see Deion and Jalen Rose and Others not only giving back but exceeding their Own Expectations is on the Next Level and beyond. And how did the Bluedude find out about Prime Prep...I am the Bluedude a One Stop Shop and One Man Operation that leaves no Stone or Athlete or even Team unturned for Better or for Worse.

Big Ups to Prime Prep Academy, with Campuses in Dallas and Fort Worth, and lookout for the Athletic Program it will be Out of Sight if they can get Cleared to Play soon.

Go to PrimePrepAcademy.org for more Details

Note: the Motto is from PrimePrepAcademy.org

BLUEUDUDE SPORTSTALK Front Line August 28, 2012...The BART is going Crazy these Days...the GIGANTES + the Swingin' A'S + the GOLD RUSH + the BLACK Hole + Planet ORACLE Boyz = a FUSION called the "GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE Explosion".

Not since the 70-80s Silver and Black, the 80s-90s Gold Rush, the 70s and Bash Brothers Athletics,  Run TMC of the Warriors or Barry, Thurmond, and Coach Attles and even the not too long ago World Champion SF Giants has BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and the Bay Area seen an Explosion and a Reason to "Put on for your City".

It is 2012 and all of a sudden out of the Pacific comes the Jim Harbaugh Led Niners who will be moving to Santa Clara, California to New Digs for the Start of the 2014 Season. They are piked to win the NFC West and one of the Top Teams on Sunday.

Then its the Swingin' Athletics in the Black Hole with a Payroll that rivals LeRoy's Cigarillo and Go compared to some of the Others Big Market Free Spending Franchises. They are in the mix of the AL Wild Card and trying run down the Rangers.

The San Francisco Gigantes have a Staff that rivals the early 2K's A's of Zito, Mulder, and Hudson with the Gigantes coming with Cain, Lincecum, and Bumgarner. The Gigantes also have one of the Best Players in the Show in Half Catcher/Half Maple Buster Posey who is not only the Best Back Stop in the Show a 2012 NL MVP Candidate. They lead the Rival Boys in Blue and swept them in LA Last Week with a Lead in the NL West.

The Silver and Black have some Issues but they have some Pieces with the likes of RB Run D-McFadden, Safety Mike Huff, QB Carson Palmer, and Black Hole Lieutenant Richard Seymour. Yes the Raiders will be a Reach to Win the AFC West but they will not be a Doormat in the Black Hole as they try to get their Mojo back and of course..."Commitment to Excellence". A Top 10 Fan Base in Major Sports and Nostalgic doing it....Salute to Raiders Nation except on Week 3 of this Season...STEELERS @ Raiders

Finally its the East Bay Warriors of Planet Oracle and they had an a+ Draft with a 2nd Round Steal in the "Lawnmower Man" Draymond Green of Sparty. Add also Lottery Pick Harrison Barnes of Franklin Street Chapel Hill, N.C. Lore along with Vandy Big Festus Ezeli...the "Logo", Warriors GM and Prez, Jerry West had another Stellar Draft and things are looking up for the Warriors as Lead Man Action Jackson tries to get them steered towards a 6th Seed in the West.

The FUSION called "The Golden Gate Bridge Explosion" is not about the Bluedude jumping on a Band wagon bout the Bay Area has it going in all Facets and me being able to cover everything from MLB to NFL to NBA to Major College Football to HS Basketball and so on so forth keeps me on Top of Things in the Sports world and you if your reading Bluedude Sportstalk....its that simple.

Also Big Ups to Bay Area Native and 2012 NBA Lottery Pick to the Rip City Blazers Damian Lillard...and yes he has Major Game as he lit up Vegas 2012 Summer League but being from the Town...he is just next in Line to get that "Bay Area Throne".

SUNDAY TALK with a 9 ROUTE of #17 on TRIPLE DIAMOND CHRONICLES #21 and in the END ZONE on the South Side of PITTSBURGH P.A....'SKINS cut TE COOLEY...HOOKEM' HORNS Alum and former QB V.Y. let go by BISON City

Finally "Da Kid" Mike Wallace is off the Couch and in Steelers Camp. Reportedly Wallace will miss Thursday's Game with Panthers and will not be able to Practice until Friday.

The Steelers still have to work him in as the Offense has completely changed and the Playbook hopefully won't give Wallace a Problem moving Towards at least Week 3-4 as the Season begins. The  Depth Chart as of right now has to be A.B. at #1, Go Go #88 at #2, and Cotchery at #3 with Mike Wallace with an Asterik by his name. The Steelers were already looking Dangerous on the Outside and now they might have the Best WR Core on Sunday outside of the Packers...Real Talk.

NFL.com is reporting the Redskins have reportedly ended an 8-Year Relationship with Tight End Chris Cooley. At Tight End you had #1 Fred Davis and Cooley at #2. Now he is gone the 'Skins will move 2nd Year WR Nile Paul up from the 3rd Spot and from Big Red Lincoln. The 3rd and Final Spot is between Westwood's Logan Paulsen and Franklin Street Chapel Hill N.C. Richard Quinn. Cooley most likely had to also be a Cap Casualty and he has slowed down some and that is my speculation.  

31-19 Overall as a an NFL Starter at QB and he i on the Streets for now. Former Hookem' Horns QB Star Vince Young was released by the Buffalo Bills on Monday and it might be hard to find a Roster Spot for a Player who I think still can be a Serviceable Stop Gap QB for a Few Weeks on Sunday.  Now where does Hookem' Horn V.Y. Land is a whole other Conversation. My Biggest Question I would probably ask NFL Heads was Young a Bust considering he was a Top Pick in his Draft? Whatever Vince is don't Turn the Hookem' Horns  Sign Down if he is in the Vicinity.  

   

TRIPLE DIAMOND CHRONICLES #20....STEELERS cut down to 75 PLAYERS....the ROSTER of 53 Deadline is AUGUST 31, 2012...9PM ET...CORNER and WR is the "Battle ROYALE" on the STEELERS 2012 Depth Chart

The Steelers made their cuts down to 75 Players as 22 more Players will be cut after the Final Audition on Thursday August 30, 2012 as they take on Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.

The Most Notable Cuts are Rookie ILB Ryan Baker of Geaux Tigers LSU as the Steelers have so many talented Backers its a Numbers Game just as much as Talent for the Steelers at the most Loaded  Area on the Depth Charts.

Another Cut is Former "Noles Standout Safety and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle at Safety. With Polamalu and Clark holding down the Safety Position and Keys Vets Ryan Mundy and Will Allen at Safety Spots in Back Up its just tough to land a Spot on the Back End for the Steelers.

Other Safeties to watch out for is Damon Cromartie-Smith a 2nd Year Player and Robert Golden a Rookie from Fresno as the Steelers will not keep 6 Safeties. Cromartie-Smith is a really good Special Teams Player.

The Battle at WR could be between Derrick Williams the Former Detroit Lions WR and HS All-American and Standout at Penn State and David Gilreath the 2nd Year WR from U-Dub Madison... Wisconsin.

SUNDAY TALK...MANNING Orange Crush Edition goes COLTS on GOLD RUSH 1st Teamers...Pats TE HERNANDEZ extended through 2018

So much for Peyton Manning being not Sharp in the Pre Season. Sunday Afternoon in Mile High he lit up the 49ers 1st Teamers on Defense led by Willis and Bowman to the tune of a 17 Spot. Manning finished 10-12 122 and 2 in the Niners End Zone.

The 49ers QB Alex Smith showed some resolve though after the Broncos got out 17-0 with a Wheel Route 44 Yard TD to the Predator...Vernon Davis. Smith was Only 4 for 6 with 25 yards total.

Manning looks like he has found his New Mate in WR Eric Decker and the Orange Crush still have RW Demaryius Thomas in the Fold as well.

As for the Super Freak Niners WR Randy Moss....No Catches and what is it to be worried about check that Man's Resume he will be ready Opening Night at Lambeau. And that Niners D had No OLB Aldon Smith on it for Starters so Slow your Rolls Sunday Pundits.

NFL.com is reporting that the Patriots have agreed to Pats' other Top WR/TE/FB Aaron Hernandez o a $37.5 Million Deal through the 2018 Season.

Hernandez Stats fro 2011...79 Grabs for 910 Yards an 7 for pay Dirt. He has a Total of 124 Grabs and 1,473 Yards and 13 in your End Zone for his 2-Year Career thus far. More like a WR and if he would have reached Free Agency in 2013 they get more Cash on the Open Market than do Tight Ends.  As for Wes Welker getting a New Deal at his Age...No...Belichek will do what Belichek does...cut him after 2012...Thanks Wes for the Numbers.

A QB DRIVEN League....It is Now and always will be a QB Driven League....Top PAID 2012 SIGNAL-CALLERS....is PEYTON Manning on the List and Big BEN?

The League revolves around them and before the NFL Big TV Revenue Streams the only Few Players on Sunday making major Bread was the Quarterback and rightfully so as it is a QB Driven League.

Now with all the Shuffling this Of Season will Peyton Manning be in the Top 10 Base Salaried Signal-Callers for 2012? What about Ordinary Joe for the Purple Browns will he be in the Mix? Then there is Big Ben Roethlisberger and his Deal a Few Seasons ago was front loaded is he even in the Top 10 Base Salaries for QBs in 2012?

The 2012 Top Base Salary Signal Callers on Sunday is sponsored by...the Kevin Kolb RED ZONE Project...who says you need Stats to get Paid in Full all you need is the Job Title:

Top 10 Base Salaried QBs for 2012...

1. P. Manning ORANGE CRUSH $18,000,000

2. Mike Vick Experience BIRD GANG $12,500,000

3. Matty Ice DIRTY BIRDS $11,500,000

4. P. Rivers BOLTS $10,200,000

5. A-Rog PACK $8,000,000

6. Cut-Close Da BEARS $7,700,000

7. M. Schaub TEXANS $7,150,000

8. Ordinary Joe PURPLE BROWNS $6,760,000

9. J. Freeman the PIRATE Ship $6,585,000

10. S. Bradford RAMS 6,000,000

Manning answered that for you and you thought his Neck had anything to do with Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen putting some Serious Scrilla down to get him another Chip to improve his net worth?

Schaub of the Texans and Cutler of the Bears are paid pretty handsomely as well as Vick with Rivers throwing to everyone but Chargers last season, and Ordinary-Average Joe for the Crab Cakes getting a Nice Chunk and a little under Teammate R2.

Josh Freeman is getting Paid to play the Part Wow!. Sam Bradford was under the Old Rules before they put the Rookie Salary Cash Scale in effect.

Now Base Salaries are as such with no Incentives counted so some of the Players on the List or not on the List can move Up at the End of the 2012 Season.

NOLA's Brees' received $40 Million in 2012 and most of that will not count as Base Salary....

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #115...No Better Time than Now for the BUCCOS as they take the REDBIRDS on for a 3-Game Set in the 'BURGH for..."2012 NL WILD CARD Shotgun Seat"

Both the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates pretty much know that catching the NL Central leading Reds is out of the Question and its all about the Wild Card at this juncture in the game.

The Redbirds come into the 3-Game Set with the Buccos 6 games back for the Reds but 2 games up in the NL Wild Card and the #2 Seed in the NL Wild Card. The Buccos are 8 games out of 1st Place in the NL Central and 2 games behind the Redbirds in the NL Wild Card. The Only way to make up immediate ground is to in your Head to Head Battles and that's what's on Tap heading into the 3-Game Set in Pittsburgh starting Tonight.

The Redbirds Matt Holliday and the Buccos Andre McCutchen still have the Peepers set on the 2012 NL MVP as well as both will be Top 5 Vote Getters with McCutchen still most likely in the NL MVP Lead.

REDBIRDS @ BUCCOS

August 27, 2012
STL Lohse (13-2) vs PIT Burnett (15-4) 7:05PM ET

August 28, 2012
STL Westbrook (13-9) vs PIT McDonald (11-9) 7:05PM ET

August 29, 2012
STL Kelly (4-5) vs PIT Rodriguez (8-13) 7:05pM ET

The way it has played out the Buccos will take their Top 2 Guns to the Bump in Games 1 and 2 in Burnett and Big Mac PNC Park Edition. The Redbirds on the Other hand have Lohse going in Game 1 and Westbrook in Game 2 as they have 2 of their 3 Big Guns from the Bump going.

Both Teams know what's on the Line and the 1st game of the Series will set the Tempo for the other 2 Games as the Buccos can ill afford to fall anymore than 3 games back and would prefer a Sweep. The Redbirds on the other hand is looking for a little breathing room in the NL Wild Card Race.Its really crucial for the Redbirds because after they leave the 'Burgh they have 4 at the NL East Leading Nationals of Nationals Park on the Potomac River. The Buccos will visit Beer Town USA..and the Milwaukee Brewers.

CAMPUS HARD Court WHOO PIG SOOIE Edition...the Backcourt that started the RAZORBACKS and Coach Nolan RICHARDSON'S "40 Minutes of HELL" in the Late 80s Early 90s...known as "MAY-DAY"

Then Arkansas Razorbacks Coach Nolan Richardson had a System in Place for an Uptempo Style that used the Basketball Court from Baseline to Baseline and Sideline to Sideline. This Style brought him a National Championship in 1994 and a Runner-Up in 1995. The Ball on Ball Full Court Man Press was known to Whoo Pig Sooie Nation as "40 Minutes of Hell".   Before the 90s Team captured the Title it was the Players in particular the back Court of the late 80s into the early 90s that put Arkansas Basketball back on the National Scene.

The Two Players in Questions were in my opinion on the Best Mc Donald's Boys All-American Ever the 1988 Team with the likes Zo Mourning (Indian River HS Chesapeake VA), Billy Owens (Carlisle HS PA), LaPhonso Ellis (East St. Louis Lincoln HS IL), Sean Kemp (Elkhart IN Concord HS), and Chris Jackson (Gulfport MS HS) to name a few.

6'7" Sniper Todd Day (Memphis TN Hamilton HS) and 6'2" Slick Point Guard Lee Mayberry (Tulsa OK Will Rogers HS) known at University Arkansas Fayetteville as "MAY-DAY". As teams were saying just that as these Two Dynamite Players torched the Opposition at every turn especially at Home in the Old Barnhill Arena.

Day was a Rail-Thin Sniper who could handle and shoot it from deep and could also use his Length to get out into the Passing Lanes. He was the 1st Big-Time National Recruit Coach Richardson signed at Arkansas. Day also was another in a Long Line of Memphis Products like Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway, David Vaughn, Keith Lee, and Elliott Perry to name a few.

Mayberry was the consummate Point with hidden Athleticism. He could Shoot it from Deep, excellent Mid-Range and Handle, with a the Ability to take a Bump or Two getting to the Cup. He was the Heart and Soul of Whoo Pig Sooie Team led by He and Day.

Both Players ranked in the Top 25 of that Talented National Class and the Razorbacks getting these Two Highly Sought after Recruits put them into a Top 5 Class Nationally in 1988.

As for their Pro Careers Ironically started like their Collegiate Career as Day was the Milwaukee Bucks #8 Pick Overall in 1992 and Mayberry was #23 Pick Overall by the Bucks as well. Neither Player had All-Star Caliber like Careers on the NBA Level but they played well enough to hold down Roster Spots for more than a few Seasons.

When talking about Nolan Richardson's Championship Years at the University of Arkansas you first have to talk about who started the "Whoo Pig Sooie" Train back to National Prominence...."MAY-DAY"      

Sunday, August 26, 2012

SUNDAY TALK with a BAD PLAY of A QB DRIVEN League and a SANCHEZ/TEBOW of MAKING NO NOISE...GANG GREEN becoming an INFECTION...where do we start CUTTING? GROUND n POUND...NO...Keep them JETS on the GROUND until further notice.

The NY Jets aka J-E-T-S aka Gotham City Green aka Green Doo Doo that's their new one. At what point does Jets Owner step in and do something to a Team that needs Direction, Players, Scheme, Leader, and Hope?

The Panthers beat Gang Green in NY Football Giants Stadium and yes I went there we need a Winner in Met Life no Looooooosers. The Jets have all sorts of Problems and come Week #3 I can't wait to see that outfit come to Heinz.

What has happened is a Prime Example when a Coach puts everything out there in the Media and no on on his Team can Cash in...no one. Two AFC Championship Games Sanchez' 1st Two Seasons and you would think he was Broadway Joe and he isn't even Boomer Esiason or Ken O'Brien or Chad Pennington.

Then you hear the rumblings that Jets #1 WR Santonio Holmes isn't talking to #1 QB Mark Sanchez and that relationship is Dunzo. Then the Jets bring in QB Tim Tebow to run a Certain Package or take  Sanchez' Job.

The G-Men keep winning at all coats and they are NYC's #2 Team right?...Do you ever hear a Giant talking in the Media about anything....can't hear you. What about Coach Coughlin running off about anything do you hear him?

As we go to press the Gotham City Green Tackle Football Club couldn't beat itself in a Scrimmage against each other. The Bad Thing is Sunday will not Stop and is Waiting for you Gang Green or Green Doo Doo.

Where is HBO's Hard Knocks now?    

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #114...BOYS in BLUE 3-6 Hitters could rival anything if they HIT....then there is 2013 with the addition of a Hopefully Healthy Carl CRAWFORD.

The Boys in Blue make a Huge Commitment and Gamble on the Newest Additions but the Real Tell Tale Sign will be in 2013 when OF Carl Crawford at some point coming off of Tommy John maybe ready...just maybe.

The Dodgers went from Three Stars in the Middle of the Lineup to a 4-Stars in the Middle with the addition of Adrian Gonzalez. Now the Line Up from an Opposing Pitchers Point of View has completely changed on how to attack the Dodgers. For instance Today's Line Up Card vs the Marlins in Chavez Ravine...take note of 3-6 and Averages:

Dodgers Line Up Card vs Marlins August 26, 2012

1. Victorino LF
2. Punto 2B

3. Kemp CF  .338 17 HR 54 RBI
4. A-Gon 1B .300 15 HR 86 RBI (Red Sox 2012)
5. Ramirez H. SS .296 6 HR 31 RBI
6. Ethier RF .291 14 HR 74 RBI

7. Cruz 3B
8. Treanor C
9. Harang RHP

The Numbers in the Middle of that Dodgers Line up is menacing but can Hanley and A-Gon keep up the pace as Kemp and Ethier will continue to hit.

The Other Big Take in the Trade was Carl Crawford and if he can comeback from Tommy John Surgery and be the Player he once was for the Rays. The Dodgers are hoping C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) hasn't taken any effect but from the looks of things you can't say it hasn't.

BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK Front Line with a TRIPS LEFT of SUNDAY TALK...TO a NO in 12 ZONE...VONTAE Island 305 goes BLUE SWAGGER NAPtown...Steelers PUGET SOUND BULLY to miss 2012 Season

12 Zone Coach Pete Carroll is turning into the Mike Shanahan and the Late Al Davis in trying to recycle Old Cans. The Latest Recycling Project comes with "I Luv ME some ME" Terrell Owens. Well apparently he was on Thin Ice in making the 2012 Seahawks and after a Few Drops when it looked like he turned into "I Luv ME some DROPS" the Hawks cut him and that has been reported on NFL Network. TO reportedly Tweeted, "I am no longer a Seahawks and Thanks 4 the Opportunity".

Does anyone remember on HBO's Hard Knocks NFL  Aqua Boyz 305 Coaches were all over Phins Corner Vontae Davis for getting Toasted and struggling with what looked to be Not in Tip Top Shape. Well throw in Colts Owner Mr. Sunday Tweeter tweeting the Colts aka Blue Swagger will be making a move soon the move is in. The Colts trade for Vontae Davis (the Former Fighting Illini All Big Ten Performer and Best Friend of Illini Teammate and Bucs WR Arrelious Benn and Davis is also the Lil Bro of the "Predator of Gold Rush"...Niners TE Vernon Davis). Now the Colts bolster a Secondary that had Antione Bethea and Bethea and Bethea on the Back End.

As for Coach Philbin being Popular with his Team or being Diplomatic you can take that with you top Key West and put it in your Mojito along with the Mint Leaves.

The Steelers were bracing for the News as everyone in the Organization knew it wouldn't be good and it wasn't. Steelers 1st Round 2012 Pick from Stanford Big Red David DeCastro has a Torn ACL and MCL and will undergo Reconstructive Knee Surgery NFL.com is reporting. The Steelers O-Line was getting to be one of its Stronger Suits until the Puget Sound Bully goes down. The Steelers will probably move Versatile OG/OT and 2nd Year Player Marcus Gilbert....WOW! Steelers Nation and with a Natural Grass Field his foot might have slid from under the Pile for a Sprain...maybe. Da** Field Turf.....

SUNDAY TALK....HARRIS COUNTY Texas Tackle Football Team and GEAUX SAINTS go MID SEASON Form in a BIG EASY Shootout sponsored by..."FANS Exit only at the END of QUARTERS" and a "7 on 7" DRILL broke out in the 1st Two Frames

A 14-14 1st frame followed by a 10-10 2nd Frame and a 24-24 Intermission Score. Was this the 3rd Week of the Pre Season or was this Week 8. The Saints finally come out on top at 34-27 as the 1st Stringers exited right after Halftime and both Defenses said Thanks.

The Texans with their High-Powered Offense let it Rip vs the other High--Powered Offense in the NOLA Saints Saturday Night in the Big V12 S600 Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The only Negative for Both Teams it look like a 7 on 7 Drill and for Sunday Defenses that is Not Good at all.

The Texans QB Matt Schaub threw for 194 Yards and a 1 in NOLA's End Zone. Harris County Texas Royalty RB Arian Foster had a modest 32 Yards on 8 totes with another in NOLA's End Zone.      Bit it was the Wisconsin Tight End and not Badgers Alum Owen Daniels but the One who backs him up Garrett Graham who had 97 Yards on 4 Grabs for a 24.2 Yds per Grab Average. He has the Right Last Name but wearing the Wrong Colors. Big Red of NOLA TE Jimmy Graham had 3 Grabs for 48 Yards in 1 in the Texans End Zone and an unassisted Dunk over the Goal Post. Someone needs to take the Pigskin out of his Hand every time he scores with that Tony Gonzalez-Like Celebration. Big Red get you own Celebratory Acts young fella.


Brees went for 17 of 25 179 Yards and 2 in Harris County's End Zone. RB Chris Ivory had 8 touches for 57 Yards and Rook RB Joe Banyard of the UTEP-2 Step (sorry Former NBA Point God Tim Hardaway who played under the Late Great Don "Bear" Haskins at UTEP) went for 7 Totes and 25 yards. Both Offenses were geared up and it looks like Both will Score in 2012 a lot but the Problem is......I Hear Crickets in the Grass on the Other Side of the Pigskin for Both.

Are both of these Outfits capable of Scoring their way to Super Bowl 47...only Time will tell.

SUNDAY TALK with a THROWBACK Talk of INSIDE BACKERS playing alongside #54 Brian URLACHER and longtime Teammate and Inside BACKER BRIGGS #55 has outlasted them all...a LOBOS/DESERT Swarm Fusion called NAVY and ORANGE Inside BACKER Heaven

The Bears didn't know what they had or knew what they had when they drafted a converted Inside Linebacker Brian Urlacher of the New Mexico Lobos in 2000. Trying to find a perfect Compliment to #54 would be another Problem the  Bears would have to solve.

Roosevelt Colvin of West Lafayette University Fame Boilermakers was already playing with the Bears as he was drafted a Season before Urlacher. A pretty good linebacker considering he was a 4th Round Pick. He was an Outsider Backer not Inside as the Bears were still trying to find 54 a mate.

The same Season in 1999 they picked Inside Backer Warrick Holdman of 12th Man College Station Texas and the Bears had them something for a few seasons they thought. Holdman and combined with Colvin on the Outside looked to be the Bears Future Backers with 54 until the 2003 NFL Draft.

The Bears get Desert Swarm of U of A Tuscon Inside Backer Lance "They couldn't even STOP ME in a Lamborghini Murciealgo" Briggs. It's funny now but Briggs wrecked a Lambo on the Edens Expressway in Chi City and ran from the Scene and was later ticketed for fleeing the Scene and QB's and Running Backs playing against 55 wish they could flee the scene as well.

Briggs and Urlacher have become the Staple of the Bears Defense for now going on a a Decade and somehow someway I am thinking 54 might have One more Year in him as they continue to Dominate the Inside of the Bears D. Now with Injuries catching up to 54 that might be the Only thing to derail his wanting to continue to play on Sunday. The Question is neither Colvin or Holdman couldn't stay in the Bears Plans and just like Briggs they weren't High Picks but give the Bears Credit. To pick 3 Backers as good as they are or were is some really nice Scouting as Colvin ended up winning 2 Super Bowls starting with the Patriots.

BEARS ILB #54 and #55 Stats combined as they continue to Dominate on Sunday

15 Pro Bowls
8 All-Pro Teams
2,254 Where you Going?
51.5 No Red Jerseys On
34 Picks TAMPA 2 induced...
1 NFC Championship 2006

Look at those combined Stats for 54 and 55 and the Only thing missing and you know what's missing not since the 1985 Bears. They Tackle the World as though it is 11 on 2, they make Trips to Hawaii as they it is a Annual Corporate Meeting, Sacked the QB half a Hundo, and for Backers make Picks as though they play Uralcher and Briggs Island...now take that Revis Island.

The Bears will one day Retire #54 but if you ask #54 he would tell you I won't go up unless My #55 goes up as well. from 2003 - Current  They won't just say I was watching the Monsters of the Midway they will also say i was watching URLACHER and BRIGGS that Lobos/Desert Swarm Fusion.

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #113 with Swinging a MAPLE TREE of RANGERS Hot Corner Adrian BELTRE...DODGERS A-GON goes GONE at 1st Chavez Ravine At Bat

Can anyone slow down Rangers Hot Corner Adrian Beltre as he goes for the Cycle last night and then goes 3 Bombs earlier in the week. Beltre is hitting at .313 with 24 Bombs and 77 Ribbies. In the last 30 Days Beltre is hitting .318 with 6 that left the yard and 16 knocked in. Who needs Teammate and 2012 AL MVP Candidate Josh Hamilton ...the "Natural of the Ball Park in Arlington" when the Beltre is On Fire.

Imagine you have been traded and you New Team needs you on the Next Flight burning to play in their Next Scheduled Game. Well Adrion Gonzalez formerly of the Red Sox along with 3 Others Red Sox Teammates played to day and would you know it. A-Gon gets Gone in his 1st At Bat as a Boys in Blue Member as he hits a 3-Run Bomb for the Dodgers. That is probably a Sign of what's to come from A-Gon because he can mash like that.

TRIPLE DIAMOND CHRONICLES #19...STEELERS Circle the "W" in WAGON on BISON City in a 38-7 "NO MAS"...Bad News...the "PUGET SOUND BULLY" DeCastro carted off the field and that is a STEP BACK for the revamped O-Line

Where do we start the Good News or the Bad News? Well the Good News is the Steelers Offense will put up Points like never seen before as they look the Part in Pre Season Game #3. The Bad News is the Football Gods will not leave the Steelers Offensive Line alone.

Big Ben threw for 169 Yards on 17/24 and a 1 in your End Zone. The Passing Game was helped by Antonio Brown welcoming Rook 1st Round Pick CB Stephon Gilmore to Sunday torching him and anyone else who wanted a piece of #84 in Black and Yellow....now Dance Wit Me for 7 Grabs for 108 Yards in 2 in the Bills End Zone.

The Running Game was powered by a 3-Headed Monster with REDdawg Redman's 24 on 12 totes, "Robber" Baron Batch's 33 on 7 totes and Heinz Water Bug 2K12 Chris Rainey's 41 on just 3 totes including slithering into Bills Pay dirt for 6. QB B-Left went for 5 completions and 105 yards and 2 Scores as he looks to be in Mid-Season Form.

O-Coordinator Todd Haley's New Offense looks good and the Toys will get even more stacked as "Da Kid" should be making his way to the South Side of Pittsburgh soon.

As for the Defense...Whose Old...your Mama is Old. 2 QB Kills, 2 My Bads via by Air, and 1 Bills Cough Up not Cough Drop....Fuuuuumble.

The Bad News is Steelers 2012 #1 Pick David DeCastro aka the "Puget Sound Bully" had to be carted off the Field and it was a Knee and we just have to hope it is a Sprain of Sorts. From the Replay it didn't look good at all and Dumervil and Von Miller are Waiting as we will be too....Right O-Line?

Santana continues to have Arm Issues as the Amazins' and Mets GM Sandy Alderson has shut him down again.

Sabathia, Verlander. Hernandez, and Lee have been as Advertised. Big "Z"-ambrano has been better than he ever was on the North Side and that's not taking a Shot at Cubs Fans because he needed to get out of Chi City. Zito a nice 5th Wheel for a loaded Gigantes Staff but not at that Whopping Price. Doc Halladay has been hurt all season for the Phils.

A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report #111...with PESKY POLE of MAKING NOISE..."POP POP FIZZ FIZZ Oh what Team PAYROLL RELIEF it is" and its called BOSlaids...CARMINES dump a Quarter of BILLION U.S. DOLLARS on CHAVEZ RAVINE and for BOSTON its the FUTURE and for the DODGERS..NOW!

The Deal from ESPN will get done Today but the L.A. Dodgers are making Yankees GM Brian Cashman and the Bronx Zoo look like a Small Market Team all of a sudden. With New Ownership in Dodger Town USA...the Dodgers are not wasting anytime and will make getting a Pennant and a possible Trip to the Fall Classic 2012 their Business.

The Deal is Large in will make the Boys in Blue you would think In Charge of the NL West soon but there is Work to do.  The Red Sox reportedly send 1B Adrian Gonzalez ($105 Million), RHP Josh Beckett ($31.5 Million), OF Carl Crawford ($102.5 Million), and Utility Infielder Nick Punto ($1.5 Million). The Red Sox get in return Infielder Ivan DeJesus, 1B James Loney, OF/1B Jerry Sands, and RHP's Allen Webster and Rubby De La Rosa which is the Dodgers #2 Overall Prospect. The Money in parenthesis is money owed after this Season. Dodgers also pick up what ever is left in 2012 for the New Players.

The Carmines hand some $260 Plus Million over to the Boys in Blue as they get rid of some Hard Contracts in Crawford and Beckett. A-Gon has put up some really good numbers for the Carmines and he should help the Boys in Blue ASAP. Beckett you would think would give the Dodgers another Arm in the Rotation as RHP Billingsley went down last night with Arm Problems in the 3rd Inning vs Marlins.

Carl Crawford on the other hand is a Huge Gamble for the Carmines as he went on IR for the Rest of 2012 with Tommy John Surgery on the Horizon. The Dodgers are hoping of he can get back to form they will have Crawford, A-Gon, and Beckett to go with a nucleus of 2011 CY Young Winner LHP Kershaw, Kemp, Ethier, and Hanley Ramirez. If all goes well that is a pretty good Coup for the Boys in Blue.

THe DOdgers Payroll was Only at $93 plus Million before the Trade as the Yankees were #1 in Payroll at some $195 Plus Million.

Carmines are now in Full Rebuilding Mode and that Word can be downright Menacing because it can go for a Few Seasons to Decades. Now the Red Sox have an New Antacid called BOSlaids. POP POP FIZZ FIZZ Oh what a Team PAYROLL Relief that is.....

SUNDAY TALK with a JULIO JONES aka J2 and MATTY ICE Smackdown on the AQUA BOYZ 305...forget its Pre Season start TANNEYHILL if you want to...SUNDAY will be Waiting and DIRTY BIRDS Flyyyyyyyy

Tired of Hearing its Pre Season you know some what you see now is not going to change in few weeks. The Dirty Birds, behind QB Matty Ice, have a New Up Tempo Offense and the Falcons look as though they will take the Burner off of Falcons RB Michael Turner.

The Dirty Birds go to 305 and beat the Aqua Boyz 23-6 and this was the 1st Start for Phins Rookie QB Ryan Tanneyhill and the Report....11 for 27 and 112 Yards and a My Bad to a Falcons Safety. The Phins look like they will need to run the Pigskin to help their young QB as he didn't look too Comfortable and never got into any rhythm Offensively did the Aqua Boyz.

The falcons on the other hand have looked the Part and the Up Tempo Offense has the Falcons going by Same Day Air with minimal Ground Support. Falcons WR Julio Jones must have gotten ticked off about all the talk Bengals WR AJ Green is the best Young WR as Jones has took his game to a Level Teammate Roddy White might not be able to get to...real talk. Matty Ice has Weapons and don't forget Old Man Jenkins...Tight End Gonzo whose taking it easy being this is his 35th Pre Season and will be ready.

As for Dirty Birds RB Michael "Burner" Turner...if you feel neglected and need to eat pick the New Madden 2K13 and make Matty Ice hand you the Pigskin at least 40 times per game. That should get you to calm down a little about those 5 carries or so on Sunday that is coming.

Falcons Lead Man Mike Smith out that QB Sneak in the Arthur Blake's Shredder and you have to win the NFC South and get to Winning Time and do some Damage or else..."I See Falcons Security People".

Th Aqua Boyz will be in 2012 a Project though you would think they would have a better chance of Winning with Matt Moore but Coach Philbin at least on Hard Knocks "Aqua Boyz 305" knows what he is doing and Jeff Ireland you be the judge.      

SUNDAY TALK with 22 MEN of BIRD GANG Philly cleaning out the DAWG POUND....BROWNS QB WEEDEN looks Full of "MISTAKES near the LAKE" and EAGLES QB FOLES looks like he is playing with DESERT SWARM of U of A

The Dawg Pound under Dictator Mike Holmgren looks like they have regressed not Only at the QB but as a Whole Unit and they play in a Division that 3 of the 4 Teams went to 2012 Winning Time. The Browns looked Lethargic vs the Birg Gang including Weeden fumbling, Missed Assignments on the O-Line, the D-Line gave Bird Gang Rook QB Foles no pressure, Browns Back End looked Suspect, and they ran out of Popcorn and Nachos midway through the 2nd Quarter...and you play the Jungle, Purple Browns, and Stillers Twice Each......Hmmmmmm

Desert Swarm Alum and now Bird Gang QB Nick Foles looked like he was playing back at Tuscon as he picked the Browns apart for 12 of 19 and 146 Yards and 2 in your End Zone. He had command of the Pocket, made Plays Down Field, and ran the Offense like he was the Kevin Kolb Science Project...Linc Edition of course.

Browns QB Weeden can't make the Open Throw let alone the Difficult Throw, has Butterfingers (hands and Candy Bar in his Locker), and in Game Press Conferences in Nonchalant about his Performances as though no matter how he plays he has the Job. How Dare you Michael Holmgren give him the Gig without a Fair Fight from Mr. McCoy. Weeden is a Product of that Spread Offense where the Reads are Pre-Determined before the Snap and the End Product is what the Browns Get a QB from General Math 100 and Sunday is Calculus and Trig AP Courses 400.

The Bird Gang "2-Step if We get Reps" Back Field of Rookie RBs Bryce Brown and Chris Polk continue to impress with a combined 57 Yards on 13 Totes. Also Tight End Brett Brackett of Happy Valley P.A. has looked good as a Rook with 3 Grabs for 34 Yards and a Score.

The Dawg Pound is rumored to have QB Colt McCoy out there for a Trade and hands looked better than Weeden has All Pre Season with74 Yards Passing on 9 Attempts. If I were the Browns you might want to Keep McCoy or your going to make 1st Round Pick Trent Richardson really feel like Earl Campbell and run the Tread right off the Rookie Tires in Richardson's 1st Season. One would also think with Studs on the Best Tackle in the Game in Joe Thomas and Really Good Center Alex Mack the Browns O-Line would be way better but that is Only Two of the Five blocking.

The Bird Gang looks like they are heading to Mid-Season Form as that D looks Faster and more Disciplined thanks to Huge 2012 Off Season Pick Up in Middle Backer and Captain DeMeco Ryans.

Dawg Pound you have about Two Weeks...figure it out or do not read the Cleveland Plain Dealer or Columbus Dispatch until the 2012 Season is over as you will be every ones Homecoming Game again. Brandon Weeden....C'mon Holmgren.

SUNDAY TALK with a BANG from the CANNON from the BIG PIRATE SHIP Tampa....no one is talking NOW but the BUCS are Coming the BUCS are Coming...the 2012 BUCCANEERS look Young, Fast, and Explosive

Not that it counts and its Pre Season but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under new Lead Man Greg Schiano have this Swagger about them all of a Sudden and its called Confidence from their Leader.

The Bucs beat the Pats Last Night and it was that Swarming Defense that Knocked Pats "Mona Lisa" QB Tom Terrific down more than what he or Pats Coach Bill Belichek would like. The Pats O-Line needs some fixing and quick with the Season right around the Corner.

The Pats Run Game also has been non existent through Pre Season and if the Pats think they will just Go Downfield on Sunday all Day long they better drop that Madden 2K13 Controller and get with the Program. A Balanced Attack No! but they do need to incorporate something that resembles a Run Game or that Defense will Eat if they know its Tom going back into the Pocket All Day Long.

Bright Spots for the Bucs is the New-Look QB Josh Freeman as well as 1st Round Picks RB Doug Martin and SS Mark Barron, Martin ran the Pigskin with Authority and scored a TD and Barron had a Pick 6. Schiano has his mitts all over the New Bucs and they will not be an easy out. RB Martin with RB Legarrette Blount is Thunder and Lightning on the Big Pirate Ship.

Bad News from last nights Game was Bucs All-Pro OG Davin Joseph will be Lost for the Season with a Knee Injury.

Pats RB Stevan Ridley did have 87 Yards on 16 Totes but it was a misleading 87. Pats WR/TE Aaron Hernandez caught 5 for 52 yards. The Bucs had Rook RB Martin get 53 Yards on 13 Carries. Brady threw for 127 and a Score to Gronk and Freeman passed for 102 Yards.

NFC South and NFC the Big Pirate Ship looks like it has patched up some Holes and ready to sail.

CSI BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK "Double Shot"...Writing "BAD CHECKS" Edition...with a FUMBLE ROOSKI of SUNDAY TALK or FUMBLING the Team Payroll...Don't Blame Matt FLYNN blame COACH CARROLL....2nd Time in 3 Years same Offense

Yes the Seahawks went to get "THEIR GUY" and some of you out there do the same thing trying to get a Squeeze and Ladies you to...and your Wrong Wrong, and Wrong Again. Yes Drafting and Trading for Players or Commodities whether they are in the Green or the Red is not an Exact Science but Balancing your Teams Payroll should be.

Crime Scene....Great Northwest....Paul Allen's Toy #1...near the Space Needle with Puget Sound in the Near Distance....VMAC (Virginia Mason Athletic Center) Renton, Washington...Practice Facility of 12 Zone Contingent Tackle Football Team...Lead Man Pete Carroll's Office:

12 Zone Nation remember when Coach Carroll had you convinced that Then Starting QB n Matt Hasselback was not the Guy anymore and the Great Death Valley Orange South Carolina Alum Clemson Tiger Charlie Whitehurst was. Pete convinced the Seahawks and they paid Charlie handsomely and now where is Whitehurst?

Well Lightning has struck again and Coach Carroll ran down Flynn from Lambeau Land and other Suitors to pay Matthew 3 Years and $19 Million with 10 Million Guaranteed. One Problem though the 2012 3rd Round Pick will probably be the Starter. I am not saying Hindsight is 20/20 but Wilson plays beyond his Years didn't anyone in 12 Zone Brass see the Wisconsin Tape....the Kid can Play with a Baseball Rocket Arm.

Don't get Mad at Flynn who may be the Most Expensive Clipboard Holder on Sunday but get mad at Carroll for trying to be Belichek well even Current Dawg Pound President Mike Holmgren. Look if Coaches want to Shop for the Groceries other should also have a Say in it also especially the One cutting the Check. There is One Solution that may be appeasing to Paul Allen's Eyes as well as that Microsoft Finding Mind of his. Coach Carroll is making $6.5 Million and for every 5 Games Wilson Starts dock Coach $1 Million to hid Favorite Charity of Paul Allen's Choice.

Matt Flynn had every right to take the Cash he just didn't know Wilson was the 2012 3rd Pick of the Seshawks instead Flynn thought he was a Seahawks Ticket Rep most likely.

Coach Carroll this isn't Men of Troy Scholarship Cash...this is Real Money Bags Coach.....

    

CSI BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK with a CHALLENGE Red Flag of SUNDAY TALK....BENSON and not that Get the Door BENSON ...HOOKEM' Horns BENSON was not ONLY a Steal for the PACK but a greater LOSS for the JUNGLE on the Ohio.

You made the Playoffs in the AFC and was the 3rd Team in the Division to do it and the Ground game was Solid led by a 1K Yard Rusher. Now If all this is True what I am telling you would trade that Running Back that had 273 Totes, 1,067 Yards, 3.9 Yds per Tote, and 6 in your End Zone....would you not sign him?...Ok you wouldn't if you had a Shot at the #1 RB in the 2012 Draft then that is a Good answer all the other Answers you can throw into the Ohio River.

Now having said all of that that Back we are talking about, Cedric Benson, waits at Home until his Phone Rings and the Football Gods send him to of all Places the Frozen Tundra....Lambeau Field and Cheese Head Nation. The Bengals signed Free Agent RB from the Patriots...the Law Firm...Benjarvus Green-Ellis for what?

Crime Scene.....the Jungle on the Ohio....Paul Brown Stadium...former Home of the Bungles now Bengals served with 5-Star Chili and a 4-Star Attack.

Packers @ Bengals...Ced Benson goes for 38 Yards on 6 Carries on his Former Teammates. Yes Marc Tyler (Former HS Phenom in the LA Area and Son of Former Rams Pro Bowl Back Wendell Tyler) rushed for 46 yards on 12 Totes but it was the Downhill Running of Benson. And your going to tell along with Green-Ellis 2012 6th Round Pick RB Dan Herron, RB Brian Leonard, RB Cedric Peerman, RB Chris Pressley, and RB Bernard Scott is an Upgrade. 'Mon Bengals if it isn't broke don't Fix it and you wonder why Teams can't get over the Proverbial Hump.

Yes Current Bengals RB Bernard Scott is just as Good as Benjarvus Green-Ellis to me and if you asked the Steelers or Ravens Defense who is that Downhill Runner in the AFC North that punishes Folks they would all say Mr. Benson.

Now the Problem is in the NFC as thew Packers get Ced in their Backfield and like they needed an Upgrade anywhere on Offense is downright Scary for the packers Opposition in 2012. Play-Action with Benson behind Rodgers you must account for because with Ced there is no wasted Motion...just right at you in the Box if your there.

After doing everything Right in the 2012 NFL Draft that move may Cost them a Return Trip to AFC Winning Time.
