I dont care how much you people want to trivialize First Take and claim how much you hate and how much skip and sas suck, they make for great entertaining discussion and they get paid handsomely to do it for a reason and why you dont.
Some folks are into that drama-fest type "reporting". If you're into yelling and screaming between Skip & Stephen A., more power to you.
I am not.
And I gave Stephen A. his props regarding his NBA reporting, when it comes to that, he's among the best. And I like his insights from the African American perspective. He doesn't shy away from those kinds of issues. Oh and the only up-to-date info I could find on his salary sets it at $400K/yr. Definitely not too shabby but not "a couple of mil..." that you threw out. But since he's not tossing any cash my way, it matters not to me what he makes.

Anyway, my point was when I want football analysis I tend to listen to the guys that played and coached in the league. They speak from experience, not speculation.

Oh and, by the way, thanks for the link, I enjoyed Mangini's take on the situation.

Regardless of the outcome of the Pats Texans matchup, I would love nothing more than to see Arian Foster run full speed and hit Dan Shaughnessy with such force that he was instantly atomized.



All of sports media would thank him.

It is not that opinions do not matter but they are not always fact.

3. Hit muff-huggas so hard they p:ss blood for a week and watch the Superbowl from home still applying ice packs.

4. With each possession remember that the Pats, refs and MEDIA think they're in for a cake walk...let it be known that "CAKE" has been in a deep freeze since the last game and go upside their heads with it.


5. This isn't a "prize fight" it's a street fight. Let the refs and league 3itch at you about how "unsportsmanlike" you were and how "dirty" you played and the fines to be levied against you as they're discussing how "Sad" it is that Brady and the Pats won't go to the AFC title game.

6. PLAY 4 quarters of solid smash mouth football and pound your opponent into a fine paste...then grind that paste beneath your heel after you take a whiz in it.

Wait. So the plan should be, injure all the Pats best players so the Texans will then be better than them and you'll then feel great about how good your team is?

Really? Are you an adult or a grown up 15yo?

You can't tell when someone is joking?
