Falcons and Panthers and Saints and Bucs, oh my

There is one thing that has proven to be true over the past decade in the NFC South; who knows who will be good in a particular year.  Recently, the Saints and Falcons have been on the road to success, but the others have been there too.  First of all the Bucs won the Super Bowl a while back.  The Panthers went from having a 1-15 record to making it to, and almost winning the Super Bowl.  Now that the Saints have one, it is the Falcons turn.  Cleary the best teams in the NFC for 2010 are the Saints, the Falcons, and the Eagles.  Two of the best three come from this conference!  They have been a dominating force for some time now in the NFL.  There is always one team in the NFC South that go far.  This year with it be the Falcons or the Saints.  We shall soon see.  The Saints may have won last night, but that doesn't hurt the Falcons too much.  They have only lost one game this entire year (not including the very first game), until last night.  Even with the loss, they proved to me that they are a championship caliber team with high expectations.  With Mattie Ice at the helm, they could very well win it all.

Looking into the future, the Bucs are right there.  Carolina has a whole lot of work that needs to be done.  The bucs could be very good next year, or completely stink.  If I were a betting man, which I am, I would put my money on the fact that they will stink.  Atlanta and New Orleans are just too good.  Personally, I really hope that Carolina makes a smart decision in the draft and with a new coach and comes back like they did the year of their Super Bowl run.

Bottom line here is that the NFC South rules the NFC.  You might not know which team it will be, but one team in the division will surely be a major contender for many years to come!

Grinds my gears

Do you want to know what really grinds my gears?  It is when the only thing you can possibly read about on these sports sites is about two or three different things on a given day.  Come on, how many times have you all read about Lebron, or Tiger, or now Favre?  Tiger was the biggest news since the hybrid car, actually bigger.  Really don't remember hearing too much about the car, but Tiger on the other hand...The news/sports writers are still putting that nonsense on the front page.  That is his personal life!  It really stinks how bad he screwed over his ex-wife, but lets just get over it.  The Tiger as we know it has still not bounced back, and won't until this is behind him.  It is pretty obvious that it severly impacted his golf game, so if you want to see the Tiger of old, then just drop it.  We all know what did or did not happen by now.  As far as Lebron goes, I have no comment except what a bust.  There is no way all three of those guys can perform all on the same team like they did last year.  The one who will more than likely be hurt by all of this is 
Bosh.  Wade and James are going to get their touches, and turn in to ball hogs if that's what it takes to get them points.  I see no championship for at least two years.  Favre, ole Brett, where to begin?  Did he really leave those voice mails?  Send those pictures?  If so, that guy has no game.  He wasn't even as smart as Tiger and make his (many) mistresses the same, just in different cities.  Lets just see how it effect his "performance" tonight on Monday Night Football.  Personally, I hope he does really well (only because he is my starting QB in fantasy football), but I don't see that happening. 

The only good thing I see coming from all of this, is that he will finally retire, for good!  When I am done doing what I do, I just hope there isn't a lot of negative talk about me.  No telling rumors or hearsay.  When I die, I want there to be joy for those remembering the good about me.  When I die I want to go peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather did. Not like the screaming passengers in his car.
