JJ Watt

Raise your hand if you could care less that the NFL Pro Bowl is on Sunday night?! Let’s be real. Not many people on God’s green earth give a crap that the Pro Bowl is this Sunday at 7pm ET on ESPN. You know it’s going downhill when Jameis Winston replaces Tom Brady.  You add in that JJ Watt isnt playing, mind 10 Panthers are prepping for the Super Bowl and let’s face it they really don’t “play” in the Pro Bowl.

It’s kind of a joke… no seriously it is.

Since no one cares about the Pro Bowl, discount is it a surprise that the NHL will be hosting its All Star game on Sunday night as well?!? Well this is one game you should turn in for; here are a few reasons why you should.

The Blackhawks will have Patrick Kane representing them. Jonathan Toews was selected to the team. However, viagra he just pulled out this morning because of and illness (James Neal of the Predators will replace him). He will also be suspended for one game for pulling out of the All-Star game due to NHL rules. However, there are plenty of other amazing players to keep your eyes on.  I hate to play favorites, but let’s focus on the Central Division team. Including the above mentioned Blackhawks superstar Kaner, the Central division is bursting with some of the most amazing talent in the entire NHL.

Let’s start with the stacked defense. Shea Weber (Nashville Predators) and Dustin “Big Buff” Byfuglien (Winnipeg Jets) give the Central two of the toughest and big guns on defense. You add in Roman Josi’s (Nashville) advantage on offense too and this defense is definitely has the upper hand versus the other teams.

On offense the talent is even fiercer; the six Central forwards have combined over 140+ goals… Say what now?! You throw in both young guys from Dallas Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn with Kane. Sprinkle in some Matt Duchene (Colorado Avalanche) and top it off with St.  Louis Blues Vladimir Tarasenko and you have a recipe for goals, goals and more goal scoring.

Your goalies between the pipes are Devan Dubnyk (Minnesota Wild) and Pekka Rinne (Nashville). These two are solid but I still feel Crawford should be there.

One of the things that the NHL All-Star Game does better than any other league is really focusing on changing the format and making it into a true competition, this year they are switching to a 3-on-3 format for the big game.

What does this mean you ask?

Eleven players have been selected from each of the four divisions of the NHL, and those divisional teams will compete for a winner-take-all $1 million prize, because let’s face it that shit goes down when you are playing for some coin….

How does this work, you may be asking?

The Central Division will play the Pacific Division in one 20-minute semifinal game, and the Metropolitan All-Stars will play the Atlantic team in the other. The winning conference in the skills competition gets to decide if it will play first or second in the semifinal. Then the winners of the semifinals will meet in the 20-minute championship game, to determine this year’s All-Star Champion.

Confused? I was as well, but with the always entertaining skills completion and the best of the best actually playing. Tune in and you won’t be disappointed.

Happy New Year, tadalafil malady SDI Fans! Hope everyone had a safe and happy one. It’s been awhile, ailment but everyone needs to get away and recharge the batteries. I want to thank all of you for being huge supporters of our site. 2016, seek has some AMAZING things in store and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Now let’s get down to business.

The Bears are once again out of the NFL playoffs and will pick 11th in the 2016 Draft after finishing 6-10. I would like to say I am surprised, but I am not. Head coach John Fox said this season wouldn’t be pretty and it wasn’t, I do feel that the Bears will get better and after looking at their schedule (pretty easy) my early prediction is that they will improve to 9-7 and get a wild card spot. Enough on the Bears, I am sure you have read all too many articles on their disaster season.

This weekend is Wildcard Weekend, one of my favorites in sports! Anything can happen. As Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly said “The playoffs are a different animal, you have to keep winning. You lose and you go home.” None of the teams kicking off Saturday or Sunday want to only extend their season one lousy week.

Here are some easy talking points when you are at the bar this weekend faking your “Dry January” and that cute guy starts talking to you.

Game 1: Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans (Saturday 4:35pm ET) – When the Texans started the season 2-5, none of us thought they would be here. The Texans have gone through more QBs than the dreaded Browns, but they do have one thing and his name is JJ Watt and a defense that in my opinion is just getting started. The loss of left tackle Duane Brown will be tough on them though. What can you say about the Chiefs?! They have won 10 straight games and are just HOT HOT HOT… Even though the Texans have home field and we all know how I feel about JJ Watt the Chiefs are just that HOT. Chiefs 17 – Texans 10

Game 2: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals (Saturday 8:15pm ET) – This game is going to be hard to call. These two teams are evenly matched expect for the QB  position, the Steelers have massive Ben Roethlisberger who already has two Super Bowl Championships and shows up in the big games. Cincinnati lost their star QB Andy Dalton on Dec 13th vs. the Steelers when he broke his thumb. He just had his cast removed, but is listed as the back up to AJ McCarron and I just think that even though McCarron has done well for the Bengals, I am just not sure he is ready for this, even though one of my best friends Audra is going to kill me (please don’t send Nance after me). Steelers 23 – Bengals 17

Game 3: Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings (Sunday 1:05pm ET) – This could be the most lopsided game of the weekend. The Vikings won the NFC North and what do they get for winning?! They get to host the other hottest team in the NFL the Seattle Seahawks.  The Seahawks started out the season an awful 2-4 and have gone 8-2 the last 10 weeks. Their defense, I hate to say it Panther fans is the best in the NFL. If you look at the stats, Russell Wilson is having his best season… say what?! He already won one Super Bowl and lost barley last year to the Pats. Watch out for Wilson, he is going to be the QB to watch in the playoffs. Yes. The Vikings have the league’s best running back with Adrian Peterson and an emerging franchise quarterback with Teddy Bridgewater. However the Seattle defense will have Teddy running faster than my favorite Seahawks fan Jay to an Air Jordan convention. Seahawks 31 – Vikings 10

Game 4: Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins (Sunday 4:40pm ET) –   I am a Bears fan. I will ALWAYS ROOT AGAINST THE PACKERS, it’s in my DNA. With that said. The Packers look awful heading into the postseason. Aaron Rodgers has been so inconsistent this season; grant it his offensive line has been heinous. The Redskins on the other hand are flying high into the postseason, but they don’t have much experience on the postseason stage. Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is the new savior in DC, and he may just be what the team needs to turn this franchise around. Their defense is good but not great, and Aaron Rodgers just knows how to score points in the playoffs.  Packers 23 – Redskins 17

Buckle up friends it is going to be a one heck of a wildcard weekend!
