Alex Smith, Time 4 Sum Aksion - NFL 2015 MNF 3

Alex Smith, it is time for you to channel your inner Redman 'cause Tonight's Da Night.

In this corner we have what you promised to be
Star Quarterback that is hard enough
That he can throw a whole bunch of TDs
With no INTs, scramble for a first, without a block
Then turn around and do the same damn thing on First Down.
'cause Alex Smith should be pissed

'cause he's gotten coaches fired
'cause he couldn't maintain the starting job
Then got traded and might start the pattern all over again
but Alex Smith, it's TIME TO BLOW THEIR MIND
Give them a punch of the funk, knock all of their gold tooth loose

Tonight's the night where Alex Smith has to prove whether he has what it takes to be an elite Quarterback in the NFL. So far, his career has been one marked for a notch above the dreaded tag of "game manager".

[For a breakdown on the numbers and perhaps a final chance to save your weekend, go over to EvenMoney Sports.]

His stats show a consistent performer who is ready to take that next step. Unfortunately for Smith, his time with the Kansas City Chiefs, in the AFC West has coincided with that of Peyton Manning's with the Denver Broncos.

Focusing on tonight and the implications for a playoff berth: the Chiefs have to keep pace with the Broncos (3-0) and the Oakland Raiders (2-1).

Standing on their way is a man looking to redeem himself and the Green Bay Packers after a crushing defeat last season's NFC Championship game.

Aaron Rodgers stands in the way of any chance Alex Smith has to be that...

What Has Eli Done For You Lately - NFL 2015 TNF 3

Used to be a time when you brought me rings

Used to brag about it all the time

Your fans seem to think that you're some elite QB

But my friends say C.R.E.AM. is what's on your mind
Who's right?

What Has Eli Done For You Lately? Having won two Super Bowls (seasons 2007 and 2011), Eli Manning has silenced most critics. Still there are many who do not think of him as an elite Quarterback who gets a pass for the bumps on the road of any athlete's performance.

[For a breakdown on the numbers for tonight's game: Redskins vs. Giants, go over to EvenMoney Sports.]

Many fans don't just want a winner. They also want a personality, a party boy, a scandal waiting to happen.

Eli doesn't give enough to talk about, so the only focus is whether he will repeat history, like a leap year, and win his third Super Bowl ring at the end NFL season 2015 (in February 2016).

For now, enjoy this short playlist about proving one's self after falling out of favor.

Can I Get A Jets Fan? - NFL 2015 MNF 2
Listen everybody, especially Jets fans

Is it right to keep rooting

While the team you love may never win?

They cheer too hard, my friends sometimes say

But I believe, I believe

That a home team should be loved that way

But it hurts them so inside

To see Jets treat them so unkind

Somebody, somewhere tell them it's unfair

Can I Get An Upset seems to be today's anthem! Who can blame the fans after looking at yesterday's results?

The truth is all Upsets are not created equal, meaning, do the following really qualify as such, especially when this is only the second week of the season: Browns, Vikings, Redskins, Jaguars?

On the other side, the New York Jets square off against an Indianapolis Colts team that took a Week 1 beating from a team full of believers - the Buffalo Bills.

For now, my advice is don't press your luck and enjoy this short playlist!

Peyton's Last Rodeo - NFL 2015 TNF 2
He had played for the Colts for 14 seasons straight, coming home to a place he'd never been before.
He had won a Super Bowl, been the league's MVP thrice,
had so many passing records, but it all came at a price.
When he first came to the mountains, coming off surgery and his career hanging by a song.
His neck was nearly broken and he doesn't really care,
'cause greatness keeps changing, and it don't last for long.

...And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high might have reached its peak. Though no official word has come down, I've seen this play out before, as a superstar athlete begins a slow decline. Last week's performance coupled with the showing in his last playoff game against his former team, the Indianapolis Colts are the true indication that it's over - the days of Peyton Manning driving an offense to insurmountable heights.

Though his Passing numbers will likely be in the Top 10 for NFL Quarterbacks, look for a strong challenge for the division from tonight's opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the meantime, enjoy this short playlist to give Peyton Manning a great sendoff!

James Blake Takedown video by NYPD cop

"Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has apologized, saying Blake looks very similar to a guy who was a suspect in a credit card fraud case. Turns out that guy was innocent and the real suspect is still on the loose"  --TMZ

In other words, they're using the other guy as a front. There was no suspect. The cop profiled James Blake, hoping to run him to find something on him.

Patriots: "It Wasn't Me..." NFL 2015 TNF 1

Roger came in and he caught us red-handed
Deflating them playoff balls
Picture this, we were throwing bombs all over a soggy field.
