Greatest College Football Game I’ve Ever Watched…

Posted in Other on November 27, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

Speechless. The greatest college football game of all time. There is nothing better than two mid-majors duking it out with EVERYTHING on the line. Think about it. What else does Nevada and Idaho live for? This is their national championship. Yea I know all of you are gonna say that the Auburn-Alabama game was ten times better, but I disagree. There’s an art to a mid-major classic. The fact that Nevada’s stadium fits on 29,000 people in the middle of nowhere in Reno makes it even better. Boise State was up 24-7 at halftime, but Nevada perfected their pistol offense to pull one of the greatest comebacks of all time. This is what college football is all about.

Giants Beat Themselves…Lose Division Lead

Posted in Giants on November 22, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

There’s nothing worse than losing in a shithole city to a bunch of douchebags. Having said that, if the Giants lose a game like this one, have it happen now. As we know in this league, no one can stay on top for an entire season. Right now, the Eagles are the hottest team. Vick has obviously been playing out of his mind. However, teams make adjustments and figure out ways to contain the playmakers. With the exception of the final five minutes, the Giants defense played their best game of the season. With the amount of weapons Philly has on offense, our defense made some fantastic plays. Due to the shittyness of Matt Dodge and some turnovers on offense, the Eagles started most of their drives close to Giants territory in the first half. Yet they only managed to score 13 points. Down by one with four minutes to go, the Eagles had 4th and 6th deep in their own territory. The Giants were able to stop the drive; however, a crucial mistake by my man Jason Pierre-Paul gave Philly another shot…and then it was over. I can’t get mad a Pierre-Paul for making this mistake. He’s a rookie who has played his heart out all year. It’s just unfortunate that we handed them the game on that one play.

I can never get angry with Bradshaw since he’s been playing out of his mind all year. But c’mon man!! Enough with the fumbles! Eli needs to step it up. That’s 16 picks on the season. Yeah, I know about five of those aren’t your fault, but that’s still too many. Plus, learn how to fuck’n slide!!! You would think after last season’s game against Philly that Eli would figure it out. I guess not. And for the second straight game against the Eagles, the game was lost on an Eli Manning fumble while scrambling. We must cut down the turnovers in order to become a more consistent team. But hey, just like Collinsworth (who sounded drunk last night) said, “The Eagles held serve tonight.”  The Eagles come to the Meadowlands December 19. Let’s make sure the Giants can get back on track next week against Jacksonville.

Btw, Asante Samuel can kiss my left nut. Just remember who owned your ass in the Super Bowl bitch.

This Better Be Reverse Psychology

“I’ve never seen a quarterback do the things Vick can do, besides seeing Michael Vick…His pocket passing is more efficient, he has a bazooka for an arm and he runs faster than three quarters of the receivers in this league.”   – Antrel Rolle

“He’s unlike anything we’ve seen at the position.”  – Barry Cofield

“His speed, there’s nothing like it at the quarterback position..You can’t practice for that kind of speed. It’s almost impossible.” – Michael Boley

Gotta tell you- there’s nothing like waking up and reading this bullshit to start your day. Really puts you in a fantastic mood. I’m hoping this is just some plan to get in Vick’s head because if these guys believe this shit, it’s not going to be a good Sunday night for Giants fans. I get it, Vick is pretty good. He got me 57 fantasy points on Monday. But c’mon! It was one game against a shitty Redskins defense. We have a great defense. We had an awful game last week but we are still top five in the league. Stop praising this fucker and destroy him Sunday.

Btw, I have concluded that there’s no such thing as karma in the NFL. Vick kills dogs, goes to jail, then has an MVP-like season two years later. Roethlisberger rapes a chick, gets suspended four games, then comes back with a strong performance. Braylon Edwards gets a DUI after a bar fight, then three days later gets the game-winning touchdown against the Patriots.  And that’s why the NFL is awesome.

I Respect the Hell Out of Chad Dukes.

I’d feel the same way if I was down in DC.

Marbury Running His Mouth…Maybe This Time It’s True.

Posted in Knicks on November 17, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

Marbury speaking to the Daily News:

”He doesn’t teach defense,” Marbury said. “He teaches offense. (Jeff) Van Gundy teaches defense. (The D’Antoni system) doesn’t work in New York. Not  in the East. You have to have a team that dives for balls and takes the 3 when nobody expects you to take the 3. You have to be inside the fans’ minds and that’s what they want. There’s knowledgeable people in the arena. They’re talking to you while you’re shooting a jump shot.” […] “It’s just a matter of time,” Marbury said. “That’s all I got to stay about D’Antoni’s situation. I don’t pay attention to his coaching. It hasn’t changed since he won 50 games or since all the how many games he’s lost here. If he had different pieces, he’s a very effective coach. But without any players that play with the realm of how he coaches the game, it will never be. “It’s a matter of time,” Marbury added. “It’s a countdown now. He put a countdown on his head. Now (the fans) know we’re never going to win a championship like this.”

Marbury actually has a point here. Personally, I don’t like D’Antoni’s coaching style. It’s been painful watching the Knicks for the past three years. He practically teaches cherry picking in the NBA. He doesn’t have any defensive philosophy and pretty much doesn’t believe in it. In this conference, you can’t win with no defense. There are too many better teams than the Knicks for them to completely disregard it as a whole. In the game last night, it wasn’t fun watching everyone on the Nuggets take uncontested shots all game long. That’s not how basketball is supposed to be played. Think about the Knicks in the 90’s – Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy. This guys lead the Knicks to the NBA Finals because they taught the importance of playing physical defense. Those teams didn’t have the best scorers in the league, but that some guys that were tough as nails (John Starks, Larry Johnson, Charles Oakley, Derek Harper, etc.) If the Knicks have another shit year, there’s a strong chance D’Antoni will be fired. I would have no problem bringing back Van Gundy to New York.

Fuck this…

Hans just ruined my day.

Islanders fire Scott Gordon

Posted in Islanders on November 16, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

So since the Isles were first in the conference a month ago, shit has seriously hit the fan. The team have lost ten straight and they’ve done it in pure ugly fashion. Luckily, this is the perfect time to lose ten straight. Yesterday, the Islanders fired head coach Scott Gordon and has replaced him with Bridgeport coach Jack Capuano. Gordon was in his third and final year of his contract. GM Garth Snow has assigned Gordon to be an advisor in his staff.

I completely agree with this firing. In the NHL, when a team isn’t performing up to its potential, a coach needs to be fired. As soon as a team is playing lackluster, changes must be made. Just look at Philadelphia last year. They fired their coach in December after a mediocre start. In comes Peter Laviolette, who leads them to an Eastern Conference championship. If the Isles turn it around NOW, they will have a shot to get back in the mix for the postseason. There are a lot of shitty teams in the East right now. The Isles need to step up and perform the way they did in mid-October. Isles are back in the Coliseum tomorrow night against the Lightning.
