Week 6 Can’t Miss NFL Picks Been asked to do it so… At The Psychology of Sports We Like The Bills over the 49ers (Rex Ryan lives another season?) The Eagles over the Redskins (These two teams were rebuilding?) The Titans over the Browns The Ravens over the Giants (A near must win for...

Mets and Their Fans ...

For those who believed that Matt Harvey, Jake DeGrom, Steven Matz, Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler were going to a pitch for the Mets in harmony and health for years to come were living in a fantasy world. In a day and age where pitchers get injured as often as they don’t the idea that...

Jet-Giant Takeaways

Jet -Giant Takeaways You can wax and wane all you want however there is no getting away from the fact that Nick Folk missed a point after touchdown and a field goal.  Also devastating was the fact that the Jets could not punch it in twice when they were down in the Red Zone having to settle...

Why Super Bowl Game ...

If I were other coaches, players, organizations, or fans after watching what was a dreadfully played Super Bowl by both the Panthers and the Broncos I would be feeling really good this morning. I saw two flawed and incomplete teams make it to the Super Bowl. I saw the Broncos with absolutely...

Carolina Panthers Me...

Everyone makes mistakes it is just how many you make and when you make them. The Carolina Panthers managed to make too many mistakes and too many of them in crucial situations. What can you say about mental errors they drive coaches’ crazy– and they should. The Panthers from the...

Peyton Manning Has N...

Peyton Manning spent his week answering more questions about his football future than he did about the Carolina Panthers. No matter how hard Manning tried he could not escape the media horde and fans who pontificated, speculated and predicted what Manning should do concerning his future. Is...

Broncos Lucky To Hav...

I am not sure what game you were watching on Sunday when the Broncos beat the Patriots 20-18. Yes 20-18. The Pats came within a two point conversion of tying the game despite overcoming so many offensive self-inflicted wounds that most mortals would have been dead on arrival. Sure the Broncos...

Tejada-Utley The Met...

1-The Mets lost game two because they were not good enough. Chase Utley’s slide took away from a number of salient points that pointed to a poor Met performance. 2-The umpires decision to not call interference or for that matter a personal foul (football style) definitely hurt but would, have...

Matt Harvey By The N...

Matt Harvey by the numbers a look at what is going on with him. 1-Matt Harvey was not stuck in traffic in the Midtown Tunnel for whatever reason he was late that is between Harvey and the team.  As a fan I could care less. What his teammates and management think-well that is for Harvey to...

Serena Williams Matu...

As Serena Williams continues to defy age and time there are few superlatives left to say about what is now the greatest women’s tennis player to ever grace the court. It is little surprise that Williams when healthy regularly beats opponents that are more than a decade younger than she which...

Jason Pierre-Paul As...

All that Jason Pierre-Paul proved by his ill-fated July 4th fireworks accident is that he is as dumb as the rest of us. That is there are times in everyone’s life when they do something stupid, dumb, less than enhancing, (add anything you want here) and JPP had one of those moments. It cost...

Lebron James Plays A...

Lebron James told us nothing we did not know when he stated he was the world’s best basketball player. He just forgot to tell us that he also plays all five positions on the court and is the de facto coach of the Cavaliers. Playing with a rag tag bunch of sidekicks some of whom resemble...

David Wright Will No...

David Wright is done as a premier baseball player. A true gentleman and phenomenal talent is nearing the end any way you want to look at it. The Mets however are better—but getting to the next level will take them out of their comfort zone. 1-David Wright will never return to the form of his...

Picking the Super Bo...

Anyone who has a decent knowledge of sports or even life for that matter can figure out what it takes to win. It is just doing it that is hard!! Using the Super Bowl as an example. 1-Off field preparation is paramount this includes both physical and mental preparation 2-The team that executes...

The New England Patr...

Talk all you want and more the New England Patriots own the best regular season record for the last fifteen years. Additionally, they have won three Super Bowls over that period of time. Few teams in any sport can compare to the Patriots winning excellence. It is easy to see how fans of other...

Jason Kidd: Being Tr...

It was neither shocking nor surprising that Jason Kidd left the Brooklyn Nets after just one season as their head coach. Kidd has a long history of doing what is best for Kidd who often exhibits narcissistic characteristics. There are few who seem to be lamenting Kidd’s departure and for good...

Lack of Talent In Me...

Promises Promises is the name of a famous 1968 Broadway musical but the way things have been going for the New York Mets promises is about all we have been getting lately from the Mets. They have been far from anything resembling a hit show or a decent baseball team. Midway through Sandy...

Michael Sam: Homopho...

Michael Sam the first openly gay NFL player was drafted by the Saint Louis Rams in the seventh round.  Sam was the 249th player to be selected– and that says it all. When his named was finally called, Sam got a kiss from his partner much in the way girlfriends kiss their boyfriends when...

Donald Sterling Deme...

There are a number of possible conclusions that can be taken away from Donald Sterling’s mea culpa interview with Anderson Cooper. First, what did we expect Sterling to say– he was guilty?  Not a chance.  Second, any reputable or irreputable PR person would have advised Sterling to do...

Jameis Winston Is Sc...

Jameis Winston has been caught shoplifting crab legs and was suspended from the FSU baseball team while facing potential legal consequences.  He has been the butt of many jokes on the Internet and has provided a plethora of material for comedians. But this is not a joke, Winston is at high...
