PMS 2.0 040 – Vinatieri, Florio, And The World We Live In

Today’s show is packed with football talk. First, Colts Kicker, the all-time NFL points leader, 4x Super Bowl Champion, the GOAT, Adam Vinatieri, calls into the show. He and Pat discuss his season now that the dust has settled, Adam Schefter breaking the news that he plans to return for his 24th season, what he learned from Bill Belichick when playing for the Patriots, and he looks ahead to next season (4:04-20:56). Next, longtime friend of the show, creator of Pro Football Talk, Mike Florio calls in to recap the Conference Championship games. They also discuss what needs to be done to change the officiating in the NFL and Mike proposes a rule change for overtime (20:57-36:29). Pat and the guys also give their takes on the Conference Championships, chat a little bit about the plans for Super Bowl week in Atlanta, and Pat talks about a couple of the recent documentaries he’s watched including Murder Mountain, the Fyre Fest documentary, and Avicii’s documentary. It’s a good one, come and laugh with us. Cheers.

PMS 2.0 038 – Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk, & Kris Jenner

On today’s show, Pat and the guys do a DEEP dive into the Divisional Round of the playoffs and cover everything else that happened in the NFL over the weekend. They chat about the Patriots not being dead, the Chiefs dominating victory over the Colts, the Rams looking like one of the best teams in the NFL, and Nick Foles seeing his magic run out. Gorms also talks a bit about his weekend going to the Colts/Chiefs game on the private jet with Jim Irsay. Later, friend of the show, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk calls in for a nice hearty football discussion. They bounce around from the playoffs, his schedule now that the football season is almost over, and what he thinks about all the different coaching changes thus far. The room also fires several questions at Florio ranging from AB potentially playing in San Francisco or somewhere else, if the Packers made a good decision in Matt LaFleur, how he settled on Pro Football Talk, and who he thinks will win the Super Bowl (1:26:34-2:10:13). Pat also debuts a new segment, “Let’s Get Topical,” as he discusses who might be out to get The Rock after a UK magazine misquoted him in an interview, and the conspiracy behind the Instagram egg that took over Kylie Jenner for the most liked picture on the app. It’s a really good one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.

Dez Bryant Did Not Pass Away & Brandon Marshall Could Kill The Saints.

https://twitter.com/BleacherReport/status/1061690915008471042

All day yesterday players on the Saints and around the league were throwing up the X for Dez Bryant and I had to go back and make sure that I read the headlines correct that he tore his achilles and did not in fact die.

You probably thought I was going to bash players for showing respect to a player that got hurt before taking a snap for a team this year but you would be wrong. I actually think it’s pretty cool. I love what the Saints offense does and I was really looking forward to see what they did with Dez. Dez was stuck on that Cowboys team forever and he just wanted a chance to win and I respect that. It also shows how close of a locker room the Saints have that a guy can be there for 36 hours and they already have his back.

I’m happy to hear that Sean Peyton is open to bringing Dez back for next year. Dez is a very passionate player and there is always room in the NFL for players like that.

Now as the great Poets Semisonic said “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” With Dez Bryant being hurt that opens a spot for the Saints to sign someone else. That someone else being Brandon Marshall.

https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/1061969423630848000

This is what I said last week about the possibility of the Saints signing Brandon Marshall…. 

Why not Brandon Marshall you ask? I love Brandon Marshall but there is one stat about Brandon Marshall that makes him unsignable (spell check is telling me that unsignable is probably not a word but they can go fuck themselves). Brandon Marshall has played 13 seasons, has 970 catches for 12,351 yards, and has 83 career touchdowns. Do you know what Brandon Marshall does not have? A PLAYOFF APPEARANCE. If you sign Brandon Marshall your season will DIE. Brees will get hurt, Bridgewater will blow out his robotic knee, Kamara’s nose will get ripped off by the ring, Goodell will retroactively suspend Michael Thomas for 9 games for cell phone usage, and Hue Jackson will somehow become coach. The Saints would burn.

The above remains true but My guess is that they think whatever voodoo Drew Brees is working with is strong than the curse of Brandon Marshall.

Check That, The Saints Didn’t get better

https://twitter.com/NFL/status/1061001563651608577

Thats TOUGH. Achilles injuries are the absolute worst and they are saying it happened on the last play of practice. Looks like everything I said below now means nothing. Except that the Saints can still not sign Brandon Marshall. 

https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/1060209814683443200

Below is what I wrote yesterday about why the Saints should sign Dez Bryant. Because I am a smart knowledgable football mind they took my advice seriously and have Signed Dez Bryant.

https://twitter.com/SNFonNBC/status/1059631270144208897

Dear Saints, You have to sign Dez. YOU CANNOT SIGN BRANDON MARSHALL. Lets take a quick look at who the Saints leading receivers on the season:

As far as receivers, after Michael Thomas the next most productive receivers are Ted Ginn & Tre’Quan Smith with 12 catches each. TWELVE, and they still are the #2 scoring offense in the league. Imagine if they had ANY other receiving threat…. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nfl-football-dallas-cowboys-xT9IgidZymvNfoEoqQ

I know Dez was not great the last few years but he was also receiving balls from Romo for a few games, Matt Cassel, Kellen Moore, Brandon Weeden, and Dak. No offense to that steaming pile of shit list I just typed but they aren’t Drew Brees. Dez would also not have to be the number 1, Michael Thomas is an animal and has that spot held down pretty well. 

https://twitter.com/Saints/status/1059239628719288320

I think Dez has reached that point in his career where he has matured (besides all the tweets attacking the Cowboys) and he just wants to win. I mean he did make the smart decision of not signing with the Browns & Ravens, 2 horrible franchises. This is a win win for the Saints. You sign him for not much money and he either preforms or he stinks and you just go back to your offense that is already putting up over 30 a game.

Side Note: Kamar Aiken is coming in for a visit as well and no one cares.

Do the right thing, sign Dez, Brees wins MVP, Saints play in Super Bowl. Book all of those now.

Degenerate Digs’ Sunday NFL Picks – 11/4

There’s nothing like gambling on an NFL Sunday. It can bring you the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. All of your bets can be looking amazing at 3PM only to have your heart ripped out by 4PM. NFL gambling is a fickle bitch and is not for the faint of heart. With that being said lets get into todays picks.

My favorite thing about todays picks is that they are all basically pick-em’s with exception to the Lions being +6. So all we are really doing here is picking the winners. Should be easy right? 

https://giphy.com/gifs/dexter-BhizOMt8txUBy

1. Lions +6 @ Vikings, O/U 49

There’s only 2 ways this game goes. Vikings win by 30 or this game comes down to the wire. You never know what Lions team you’ll get but I’m banking on the good Lions since they got a shit game out of the way last week. The line is just too high for a division game when neither team has been consistent all year. LIONS +6

https://giphy.com/gifs/nfl-football-detroit-lions-3o6Ztgli0X8YybK1VK

2. Falcons +1 @ Redskins, O/U 48

I know the Redskins have a good record at 5-2 but I just don’t believe in them. They only score 20 points a game and that lines up very well for the Falcons. The Falcons big weakness is defense but I’m hoping coming off back to back wins and a bye week that Dan Quinn has sured that side of the ball up and will do well against a Redskins offense that isn’t blowing the doors off anyone. FALCONS +1

https://giphy.com/gifs/nfl-football-touchdown-xT0xehbdcqjIuJvqJq

3. Broncos +1 vs Texans, O/U 46

Denver has been good at home with their only 2 losses being to the Rams by 3 and the Chiefs by 4. The Texans O line is garbage and I expect DeShaun Watson to have Von Miller and Bradley Chubb in his face all day long. Houston’s secondary is also very banged up so look for the Broncos to have success through the air with Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton. BRONCOS +1

https://giphy.com/gifs/nfl-football-l1J9PzYHeJvWdatNK

4. Chargers -1 @ Seattle, O/U 47.5

The Chargers only 2 losses on the season are to the Rams and Chiefs who pretty much everyone has loss to. The Seahawks have been much better than I thought they would by having a good running game and a solid defense. Only problem with that though is the Chargers have the defense to stop that run game and the playmakers on offense to score enough points the Seahawks won’t be able to keep up with. The Chargers always play better on the road too since they get to play in front of an actual crowd. I also hate Russel Wilson so factor that into my pick. CHARGERS -1

https://giphy.com/gifs/nfl-football-3ov9jNmoQ3eCAlkaOc

5. Saints +2 vs Rams, O/U 57.5

The Saints are getting points at home in the dome. I’ll repeat that…The Saints are getting points at home in the dome. That’s reason enough to take them today. Not to mention the league is rigged for Bree’s and this will go a long way to secure his first MVP, and possibly home field in the playoffs. Do not go against Drew Brees at home. That would be a mistake. SAINTS +2

The NFL is Rigged for Drew Brees

The NFL is rigged for Drew Brees.

Sep 17, 2017; New Orleans, LA, USA; New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) during warmups before a game against the New England Patriots at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Mandatory Credit: Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

I’d like to say that I am not an NFL rigs games guy, the Italians rig games.  However, when I lay out all the facts it will be hard to not think that something is going on.

First things first, I want to make this clear. I’m a fan of Drew Brees. Before Drew Brees if you were a skinny white kid under 6 feet you inspired to be Wayne Chrebet, Brandon Stokley, or Wes Welker, not exactly NFL royalty. More like CTE royalty. At least with Drew we now could dream about being QB royalty, the greatest of all the royalties. Drew led the way for guys like Russel Wilson, Case Keenum, Johnny Manziel, Chase Daniel, and Baker Mayfield to at least get a chance in the league. Sure some of them aren’t great but Before Drew no one that size was getting a chance. Flutie was in the league strictly for drop kicks so don’t even bring him up.

Now that I have made it clear that I appreciate Drew Brees, here is the case for the NFL rigging games for him. I don’t know why the NFL decided to do this for Drew, I assume it’s because he chose New Orleans over Miami when New Orleans needed a savior but who knows exactly why.

Speaking of New Orleans needing a hero and a savior after Katrina. Quick shout out to Steve Gleason and one of the coolest moments in NFL History

Alright let’s get into the things that have gone either the Saints way or Drew’s way that could be deemed “suspicious.”

  1. The Sea parts for Steve Gleason on the first punt in the SuperDome after Hurricane Katrina. Like I said, one of the coolest moments of all time, but how often does a rusher come that free up the middle.
  • The Saints recover one of the ballsiest onside kicks of all time in Super Bowl XLIV against the Colts. The dog pile was absolute mayhem. Sources tell me that the refs were yelling “blue ball” (Colts ball) originally and then changed to the Saints. The video below does not show the refs pointing for the Colts at any point but that’s what I’m told.
http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-cant-miss-plays/09000d5d81646143/SB-XLIV-Can-t-Miss-Play-Saints-surprise
  • Peyton Manning throws a pick six to Tracey Porter to seal the game for the Saints. At first that seems like a normal football play until you really break it down.  Tracey Porter basically ran the route for Reggie Wayne. Reggie Wayne being a guy who caught 856 balls from Manning. A ball being intercepted that easily on a pass between those 2 is not a common occurrence. Was Tracey tipped off? Peyton and Reggie are both from Louisiana…… hmm.
  • 2012 Drew Brees breaks Johnny Unitas record for most games in a row with a TD pass. This is where the suspicion switched from the Saints to strictly Drew Brees. Drew breaks the record during a primetime Sunday Night Football game, against the Chargers (the team that chose Phillip Rivers over him), to a WIDE OPEN Devery Henderson.
http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-cant-miss-plays/0ap1000000078092/WK-5-Can-t-Miss-Play-Brees-breaks-Unitas-record
  • 2018 Drew Brees becomes the all-time passing yards leader in the NFL. Once again this was done during a primetime game. Once again to a WIDE OPEN receiver for a TD. Sure the NFL tried covering up the rigging by enforcing a penalty for excessive celebration even though his whole family is there with the huge Hall of Fame dude with his white gloves and a certificate for Drew to have but I saw right through it.
https://twitter.com/thecheckdown/status/1049473834380877825
  • Last week Drew Brees throws his 500th TD and beats the Ravens, the only team he had never beaten.  It wasn’t that he beat the Ravens on the day he threw his 500th TD it was how he beat the Ravens on the day he threw his 500th TD.  The NFL fired up there ole wind machine and forced Justin Tucker to miss an Extra Point. Justin Tucker, the league’s most accurate kicker. Justin Tucker who hadn’t missed an XP since High School. 314 Extra Points in a row. Doesn’t matter how many extra points you’ve hit in a row when you’re against Drew and the NFL. Hmmmmmm
https://twitter.com/espn/status/1054149677485080578

Like I said, I’m not an NFL is rigged guy, but when the evidence is laid out in front of you.  It’s tough to argue.
