Vote: Could 2012 U.S. Olympians beat '92 Dream Team? (w/ poll); plus Freeh Report buries Joe Pa, America loves LeBron, TV ratings, Marlins & more

Convince a paraskevidekatriaphobe to leave the house and join you for lunch today, then pay the waiter to slip a fake eyeball into your friend's soup. 2) Click on The Closer for yesterday's column, on Pat Riley's influence in the Heat landing free agents Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis. (If only the Marlins had a closer as effective as Riley...). 3) It was 50 years ago last night that the Rolling Stones played their first gig at London's Marquee Jazz Club. 4) Join us on Twitter @gregcote]

Team USA off to good start: Team USA routed the Dominican Republic, 113-59, in its first pre-Olympics exhibition last night in Las Vegas, led by Kevin Durant's 24 points. LeBron James and Kobe Bryant had 11 combined in very limited action. Click on Dream Debate for today's latest column by me, on the debate over whether the 2012 U.S. Olympic basketball team could beat the '92 Dream Team. I say yes and explain. We invite your vote in the poll immediately below.

POLL: 2012 U.S. OLYMPIC BASKETBALL TEAM VS. 1992 DREAM TEAM. VOTE NOW!: The answer isn't 1aa1dreamdebateknowable, so like any cross-eras debate this poll is just for fun. The question of which team would win is in the news because Kobe Bryant said his 2012 team would beat the '92 squad, and Michael Jordan scoffed at the idea. The Big 3's for each team: Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird vs. Kobe, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. If that sounds lopsided (not to prejudice the jury), I would note that Magic and Bird clearly were past their primes in '92, which to me levels the argument and makes the answer honestly debatable. Dream Team might still be the quick/easy answer but I'm not so sure, as I explain in my latest column, now online (see link above) and in today's/Friday's paper. What do you think? Vote and say why.

U.S Olympians will lead world in funny hats -- Update!: In prior blogpost I poked fun at U.S. Olympic Committee choosing dorky French berets as headwear for American athletes in London. Now Congress is irate because the Ralph Lauren-designed uniforms were made in China!

FOOTBALL STILL RULES NATION: There might be some doubt in Greater Miami, where the Heat are as (or more) popular than the Dolphins, but nationally the NFL remains king. Latest proof is from Sports Market Watch's top 50-rated sports broadcasts of the first half of 2012. The Giants-Patriots Super Bowl is No. 1 overall with 111.3 million viewers; in fact the top 12 are all NFL. Clinching Game 5 of the Heat-Thunder NBA Finals ranks 17th with 18.4 million.

AMERICA: "WE FORGIVE YOU LEBRON. IN FACT YOU'RE OUR FAVORITE NOW!": Call Wednesday night's 20th annual ESPY Awards the symbolic completion of the reimaging of LeBron James. Fickle, front-running America's opinion of the Heat megastar has gone from Mad to Mad Love. Quick disclaimer: NBA and its stars enjoy a unfair distinct advantage in the ESPYS, because fan voting takes place just after the season has ended, when highlights and the NBA Finals are fresh in minds. Even so, it 1aa1heat2was a stunning sweep for James as he won Male Athlete of the Year, NBA Player of the Year, Championship Performer of the Year, and led the Heat to winning the big final award, Team of the Year. The Big 3 were not there in Los Angeles, although LeBron -- off training with the U.S. Olympic team -- appeared in a live thank-you video. Hilariously, the team award was accepted by Juwan Howard and Mike Miller (pictured). "We have the Big 3 and then there's the Little 12, and you see two of 'em right now," joked Howard. Those two accepting Team of the Year for the Heat would be like me accepting the Pulitzer Prize for The Miami Herald, but it was cute. Three other quick ESPY thoughts: 1) No other entity on Earth pimps itself as unabashedly as ESPN, The Worldwide Leader in Self-Promotion; 2) Eric LeGrand simply would not stop talking but who has the nerve to shush a man in a wheelchair accepting a never-give-up award?; and 3) If you walked in on Baylor's Brittney Griner speaking and didn't know who she was, you'd assume from seeing and hearing her that she was a "he." I'm just sayin'.

Poll result: Sorry, Rashard. Ray's the man: We invited you in our previous blogpost to say whether Ray Allen or Rashard Lewis excited you more as a Heat free-agent signing (you can still vote), and a landslide of 87.2 1aa1raylewispercent chose Allen. (By the way, if you combine Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, do you get Ray Lewis?)

MARLINS' 'THE FRANCHISE' PREMIERE: A REVIEW: [Marlins return to post-All-Star Break action tonight at home vs. Nationals] Much of the one-hour premiere of Showtime's baseball reality series starring the Marlins felt like a replowing of plowed ground, such as Ozzie Guillen's 1aa1franchiseprofanity-laced spring training talk to his team and the Fidel Castro stuff. (The series will seem fresher elsewhere than in So-Fla, where so much of what is aired has been previously reported). Other elements seemed extraneous, such as way too much time spent on club president David Samson's charity run. What makes the concept work are the details, such as Guillen telling Marlins wives before a charity softball game: "Play better than your husbands!" Or GM Mike Hill in a staff meeting saying, "The veterans are crapping all over themselves." Focal point was Heath Bell's struggles, and his give and take with Guillen was illuminating. Guillen, Bell, Jose Reyes, Giancarlo Stanton and Carlos Zambrano got the most face time. Very little Hanley Ramirez. Zero Josh Johnson. Sometimes you almost wished the cameras weren't there, as when Gaby Sanchez was told he was being demoted again to Triple-A. One other quick thought: Guillen spewing F-bombs in a clubhouse has its profane charm, seeming natural to his persona and somehow softened by his thick accent. Samson in a suit using F-words in a president's office sounds, well, unprofessional.

FREEH REPORT ON PENN STATE/SANDUSKY DAMNING TO PATERNO: The investigation into the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky child rape scandal by former FBI director Louis Freeh is out; click HERE to 1aa1joepadownload it. "Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State," Freeh concludes. "The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized." Joe Paterno (pictured) is named as one of four leaders who "never demonstrated, through actions or words, any concern for the safety and well being of Sandusky's victims until after [his] arrest." The world now knows Sandusky, convicted of 45 counts of serial child abuse, is a creep of the worst order. But this new report leaves little doubt about the gravity and extent of Paterno's looking the other way -- a tacit approval that allowed for more victims over many years. The legacy and name of the late Joe Pa won't ever be the same.

Oye brother, I think the heat is starting to effect your brain. It's either that or you have discovered your Puerto Rican roots in Austin, Texas.

FZB, tu entiendes lo que dicen los peluos esos cuando estan gritando mientras que hacen bulla con las guitarras? Tu ingles tiene que ser mejor que el mio porque yo no le entiendo ni pinga.

Woodcock,

I know your employer prevents you from watching YouTube, so check this out when you get home.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRQ41yvToKA

I hear that Dave in LA will be stopping by your house the next time he's in Austin. Is he coming for music lessons or to dust and vacuum?

funny post Woodcock @ 12:07pm. lmao. Just for the record I find your slapstick humorous, even when your ragging on me.

OC, enjoying Austin yet?

Everyone associated with Penn State should be in prison, all the way down to the groundskeepers and janitorial staff. I want Odrick off the Dolphins ASAP. And please get Matt Millen the hell off of my TV and off my radio and into prison where his coverupping ass belongs.

Skiing is not a Sport it's an Activity. We put a lot of Physical Activity in the Sports Category. Now, I'm not the one to classify each one.
Daivd Sampson is Loria's son in Law. Talk about never getting rid of him. Wow, I didn't know Samson sucked up that good.
Every Music Genre has it's good and it's bad. U have to remember Country Songs sometimes ain't about the Singing, Certain Songs set the Mood. Red Solo Cup
Posted by: Dashi | July 11, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Come On Dashi,,, skiing a difficult sport to master. U ever try it? Go to a resort in Utah or Colorado and try getting down a double black diamond trail intact let alone flying through it with speed and skill & Not hitting a ponderosa pine (Sonny Bono style).

FZB, what's up with the jungle fever bro? Look at this guy at the ESPYS yesterday, don't they have any sisters that look like Halle Berry that would go out with this guy?

http://www.baltimoresun.com/media/photo/2012-07/71016080.jpg

Jimbo, like I told him yesterday, I'd like to see him at the edge of a cornice with 30 mph winds looking down the precipice and have the balls to shove off.

Woodcock, Mi "inglish" is not perfect but I can "understan" todo lo que dicen, limpiate los oidos meng.

what's this that you can't view you-tube, big brother is watching?..that's the next step to communism.

Oye, the blues is the shit, great music.

a las blancas les gusta el rabo de los chardos, what can I say.

OC, I saw that video..very funny, I forwarded to my boy...Thanks

you can probably make a living in Austin correcting all those mejicano's on the proper way to "spekadi englis"..knowing how anal you can be about that, you could make a killing.

None of you guys have any love for Curling ?

Its a very exciting sport and keeps your attention span 100% of the time.

here is a public service announcement.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDOMsDPyrBk

Oye, I think that Dashi has been passing as a Dominicano when he's really a boniato.

I wasn't going to answer that Woodcock, but U know what I am "I can Read and Write". No tire Peidra

I later conceded that Certain Styles of Skiing is a Sport. Slalom or when they jump off the Hill for like 200 ft in the Air.

Big Brother is always watching. Specially after Bush, we all get Dic Cheaney'd.

Now on to the ongoing Dream Team debate, if they can't beat a group of Baseball Players tonight by 30 they have no reason to speak.

Oye brother, aren't they playing your boys from the Dominican? You should tell the coach to show up with his boys in baseball gear and spikes and challenge the new Dream Team to a baseball game 'cause they are going to lay some serious ass whipping on your boys when they play b-ball.

Most Sports in the Olympic Games are Sports, Not all of them.


what's Good Magic Mike, How's that back feeling?

the Dominican basketball team can't even beat the Coral Gables girls HS basketball team....Now Beisbol is another matter.

if Team USA doesn't beat them by 50 they are pussies.

Dashi, there are a million "great looking mulata's" in your country..

bendito sea dios.

Hank Wiiliams jr is a great American.

http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/our-country/hank-williams-jr-obama-hates-america-163652021.html

keep up the good work Hank !

Agreeed FZB. Hey they might not beat the CG girls team or the Edison Girls Team, they'll just get them all pregnant for papers before tip-off.

It's not like DR got guys like Reyes playing PG or Hanley at SG(Real Athletes), Horford played for the USA when he played. Plus DR fields an 18 and Under team, Check the Birth Certificates.

Only Dominicans that play Basketball on the Island play because they Suck at Baseball. That or U have to be 7 ft tall. Rule- U have to be tall if u want to have an Easier or Equal chance to make it in the NBA. The Bigger the Player the Less of an Athlete he has to be in the NBA. In Baseball Skill Outweighs Freakish Height.

It makes Mathematical(Logical) Sense to have everyone under 6'8 play beisbol. U have a Better Chance % wise of making it to the Big Leagues than the NBA. More positions per team, without including Minor Leagues and Winter/Independent Leagues. With Baseball U don't have to worry about the 1 God or Genetically given thing needed to play or Dominate in the NBA, Height.

I love my Cinnamon Skin Women, We love all the Colors down there. Dominicans come out in New Colors every year.

If the Dream Team Takes it out on us on the Court, I hope DR takes it out on them on the Diamond. Even though it will be up against amateur Dominicans in Baseball not The Dream Team against some Scrubs.

Jimbo,

Woodcock and I have skied all over Ca an average of five times a year for nearly three decades. There was not one local mountain resort in the local mountains that we couldn't shush from top to bottom, non-stop, downhill run style. Ask him about the time they tried to kick us off the mountain and we faked an italian language - Mi scusi ma non capisco ciò che!

Oye OC, you need to change your face book status from "mision viejo" to Austin Texas...

you're not in Kansas anymore buddy...

Oye, the last time I skied was about four years ago. My buddy asked me to help him drive a four wheel drive jeep to his house in Sun Valley, Idaho. I hadn't skied in 2 years and was even in worse shape than Cote. I got up there and it was the last weekend the resort was open. At Sun Valley the main ski resort is at Baldy, which has a 9,000 foot elevation, the runs go straight down to the bottom no plateaus just a steep pitch of perfectly groomed snow. I got up there totally out of shape thinking I could ski myself "onto shape" like when I was in my 30's and 40's, right! Bro, after three hours of skiing I went to set and edge and I just kept going down like if I was sliding into second base. Once on the ground I couldn't get up my legs felt like rubber. That was my last hurrah, I might hit the local slopes this year for some light skiing but the days of balls out from the top that OC is talking about are long gone.

I thought so, welcome to the club.

Woodcock, aka, Mr. Regordets

And a lot of "dough" that I've spent to get to the gordet part. "En docientas sin levantar pesas" if the Dolphs call I'm ready to go in, Coach.

awww.. cute one, cock. i'm only in texas when i get paid to be, (3 weeks ago, in fact. opening for george lopez in dallas), so no vacuuming. lot's of sucking though, especially when your daughter is around.
listen to any non musicians today? some erroll gardner? chet baker? buddy rich? wes montgomery? ray charles? stevie wonder? dave brubek? jimi hendrix? lindsay buckingham?
all are not real musicians to YOU since they cannot read music. stick to talking about stuff you know, like taking a raft to miami, viagra, etc..

*smooch*

(the real) david in los angeles,

i was in amsterdam when chet baker fell out of the window and met his fatal doom. tortured life, but what a beautiful sound came from his trumpet. also love the playing of another junked out player, art pepper, who stated in his biography that once he "tasted" heroin he knew that he was gonna not gonna give it up. both spent huge amounts of time incarcerated. first track on my art pepper album is "smack up"- enough said.

All my exes live in Texas.

OC have a Lone Star for me it's not bad you'll get used to it!

Wassup Dave, when you coming by to mow my lawn?

Say Dave, when you play with the mariachis do you play the Mexican ocarina or the flute?

Wow Davy boy, look what I just got you your very own learn to read music game. What an exiting time for you Davy now you too can be like the big boys in long pants and actually play music while you read the little black dots on the lines on the paper! Now be a good little boy and follow along with Mr. Fishy.......

http://www.makingmusicfun.net/flash/eekshark.htm

1992 Dream team vs 2012 USA team, if the game is played today then the 2012 wins hands down, of course all the guys on the 1992 team are all over fifty.

did any of you guys read the report of all the shit that was going on at PSU ?

lost a lot of respect for Paterno and the university, I hope that mo-fo get's raped 20 times a day for the rest of his life, sickening.

Baby, All me exes live in texas ?..damn son, how many you got?..lol

shadow.. baker was a genius.. that sound cannot be taught.. he just had it.
too bad he couldn't read music; what a hack..

Woodcock, I know how you love the fab four...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7h1IphPfeU

Joe Pa was only doing whats right, 60 years ago. Back then they would've thrown all that under the Rug. Makes u Wonder how many kids Sandusky really touched.

The 2008 team and the 92 dream team would've been a good game. 2012 team can't even beat the 08 team.

Come on Dapper you gotta lighten up, dude. I even got you a free game to shore up your skills. Remember son, you're never to old to learn.

FZB, you prefer the Beatles to Benny? Say it ain't so, boy.

Testing, testing 1, 2, 3... The number of pedophiles that end up in the priesthood is probably mindbendingly outlandish. Who knows that may have been what started Sandusky down his nightmarish road.

I just read somewhere Stevie Nicks announced "the Mac is back." Big Mac? Did it ever leave? She couldn't mean Fleetwood Mac. Eeewww that's not a pretty picture. I bet Jagger & Richards are easier on the eyes at this point.

lol dust and vacuum Texas. That's bigger than cleaning up after Katrina.

Looks like we get to see JT soon on ESPN, NFL Network etc.

That's great between Hard Knocks and this it's shaping up to be good tv viewing.

I think this defense will be scary good if we can figure out the safety position.

K. Misi is the x factor at OLB he needs to have a good year.

Make or break seasons for R. Jones, Clemons N. Carroll S. Smith.

We will need all of them to perform at a high level this year.

I think J. Wilson may have a breakout year I could see him at SS a lot.

We will get to see what players make the cut on Hard Knocks.

WR situation should be very interesting.

Not NFL Network NFL Live, NFL 32.

FLEETWOOD MAC BACK?

yes, when peter green, jeremy spencer and danny kirwan return; christine mcvie and stevie nicks- no thanks.

Babi, our defense is strong but like you say we still have question marks.

I think we'll be fine at safety, Jones, Clemmons or Smith, they SHOULD be able to find two that can play right?

I don't know what to make of Misi, still on the fence there but I don't think he is with the team next year if he doesn't win a starting job this year.

I'm not has worried about the Wr's as some of you guys because the WCO involves the TE's and Between Fasano, Clay and the rookie we drafted we are ok there.

I still think our biggest problem will be the OL, that RG position needs to be taken care of.

ooops, meant to write Baby...sorry about that.

FZB Misi looks like the starter right now with Guyton behind him but if he doesn't step it up he won't make it I think you are right.

We can't just be fine at safety we need to be better than that.

We had a really good red zone D last year hope that continues.

in case anyone of you guys are interested..Ice Age 4 starts today...

Fleetwood Mac had a couple of good songs but for the most part, not a big fan, agree with senor Shadow there.

Rumours has sold over 40 million copies and that's just one album.

Impressive by any standard.

What is there to change on the Dolphins logo, Ross just wants to mess with tradition...WTF ?

Dukes-ter, I know this is not Jimi but is still a pretty good cover by Clapton and C Crow, Hope you like it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BSaAiWnBHY

Speaking of linebacker's..

http://thefinsiders.com/blog/2012/training-camp-preview-lbs

Baby, Omar Kelly thinks very highly of our new defensive coordinator, he has a reputation of being a great teacher and relates well to his player's plus his so called expertise is the DB's so I think our defense will be solid.

can't wait to see the QB battle and the kid Tannehill, I don't think we need to rush him since we have Garrard and Moore but I get the feeling that the one that loses out will be traded or released by the end of training camp.

I also think that D Thomas will have a break out year at RB..two more weeks !

Looks like it's no more helmet for the dolphin.

Last change wasn't bad they made the dolphin look meaner not smiling like before but this is a big one.

Hope they get it right.

FZB, actually OC turned me onto that rendition awhile back when we were comparing Jimi's Little Wing with other artists. One OC put on here that was acoustic version by some guy I never heard of was most original version I had heard of it and most impressive next to Sir James.

When Stevie Nicks was really a young hottie she was at some concert Jimi was playing. I believe she was with Buckingham/Nicks at the time(?) Anyway Jimi says while doing his set, "This goes out to the chick in the yellow underwear. Yes you.." In fact you can hear this dedication on one of his live albums.

They should let Dolphin keep his helmut and take away players. Maybe the smell of fear would light a fire under their collective butts.

baby.. just heard about the logo change on 710 ESPN here in los angeles. what an F ing travesty.

Big baby- Who gives a fu#k about a logo!!!! anything to take away the awful product the dolphins will put on the field this year. Strong defense? Who the hell have they addeded that has to cover brandon Lloyd?

Cote stop it. I realize you depend on feedback for your columns but, the 92 team had 11 hof players on it, this team has 3. Kobe, James, Durant. That team even kept Isah Thomas, a HOF player of the team. Blake Griffin, Carmelo Anthony, stop it please.

Naples jack, you seem to be a little "negativo" lately , the Dolphins HAVE a much better defense than the Patriots, your saving grace is that hall of fame'r behind center.

you guys out score everybody, you defense sucks.

Beli-Cheat is the devil.

if umiami GETS SUSPENSION AND LOSS OF BOWL ELIGIBILITY BECAUSE 5 OR 6 PLAYERS TAKE RIDES IN YACHTS OR GO TO PARTIES paid by boosters ........ then Penn State should get a 10 year death penalty (no intercollegiate sports until 2022)

If NCAA doesnt give death penalty .. then NCAA should be disbanded.

2012 OLYMPIC TEAM would beat 1992 TEAM ... here's 10 reasons why ...

1. BIRD was injured and was flat on his back in front of the bench most of the time

2. MAGIC had been out of NBA for OVER A YEAR .... he was way over the hill

3. JORDAN is better than KOBE but Kobe could hold MJ to 20 - 25 points ......

4. no one oon 1992 team could guard DURANT ..... he can pop 3 point shots all day from the closer 3 point line in FIBA

5. no one on 1992 team could guard LEBRON ......

6. the 1992 team played very weak competition ... there were virtually no european players in NBA in 1992 (tony Kukoch??) In 2012 we face a Spain team with M.Gasol, P.Gasol, S.Ibakka ...... even Dominican Republic had Al Horford.

7. 2012 team has trained off and on for 2 years .... adopted to the nuances of International FIBA .... different style of play than NBA. The 1992 was a group of allstars thrown together and they overwhelmed their weak opposition .... but they were not really trained with FIBA style.

8. COACH K knows FIBA style ... Coach Daly was an NBA coach ..... Both great coaches, but Coach K is much more attuned to the nuances of FIBA BALL

9. many players on 1992 team were weak on defense ... Magic, Stockton, Bird, etc .... 2012 team is more athletic and much better on defense ......

10. 1992 team was stronger at center position ... but FIBA style is not nearly as dependent on a big center ... in 2008 Howard was not a major factor. However, I do wish 2012 Had Howard and Chandler at Center ......

Mike1361, you're smoking some fine-ass weed...Is it jamaican?

FZB- Stop it with your defense. Who the hell did they beat last year that was any good? When is the last time this defense beat the Pats, or any top offense? Who have they added this year to there defense that will scare any OC? The NFL today is about QBS and scoring, and the Dolphins dont have it. Look at the SB last year, Giants, Pats, 2 of the worst defenses in the NFL. These 2 teams could play 10 men on offense, and beat the Dolphins 15-16 games. Until you get a top QB, you are 8-8 at best. You better pray that Tannahill works out, or you are in trouble for the next 5yrs. So far things dont sound to promising with this guy.

Theres a concensus about the top flight NE Patricks Offense there NaplesJack.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJB1u1ZFzrk&feature=related

Duke, R U on Facebook?

You are right FZB NE's defense was ranked in the basement last year don't see it changing.

The PSU horror show (may Sandusky burn in hell) will haves no effect on the goobers at the NCAA weighing UM's "sin."
What puts it all in perspective is UM's terrible W-L record during the Shapiro years, versus the 2012 Baylor Women's NCAA basketball champions, 38-0. (or something like that)
Stephanie Griner was illegally recruited. Multiple infractions. Baylor self reports. No penalties, loss of games, Championship, etc. NOTHING.

UM will get another year of no bowl, no BCS ranking, and the worst, loss of scholarships. We've already suffered a pretty bad recruiting hit, fortunately made less so by Golden and staff's hard work, and the U's still tangible cache.

Jimbo I was a long time ago but now it's too crowded and I like my privacy. Also too many people from work on there. People I don't have much in common with outside of our humanity. This is my Moose Lodge.

Now Ross wants to change the Dolphin logo? Are you kidding me?! And I saw that it could potentially look like the faceless Dolphin Stadium logo. What is WRONG with this clown? Worry about what is ON THE FIELD! We like the logo and the uniforms.

Drop dead Ross.

naples?
while the giants were ranked 25th in total defense last year during the season, that number went to 3rd in the postseason, with 2 AFC teams at 1 and 2. they were #1 in sacks, and #3 in interceptions, with only AFC teams AGAIN ahead in those categories.
it explains why they were able to go as far as they did. if your team thought 2 seconds about defense the last few years, maybe brady WOULD be in the same conversation as montana. it's funny; the league keeps changing the rules for pansy QB's like brady but in the end, it's STILL defense that wins championships.
moore was ranked 12th over all with NO camp; he wasn't even on the TEAM 3 weeks before the season, then gets thrown into the fire after henne went down.
miami will surprise a few people this year, trust and believe.


Tom Brady's new paramours. Gisele don't worry. They don't mean a thing to Tom...

I saw this movie last night, I had forgotten how great it was.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnRUHtSgJ9o

of course my wife and sister thought I was nuts for watching a black and white flick, funny.

David, I do agree with you also, The Dolphins will surprise a lot of people for a couple of reason's , Garrard ( if he is healthy ) is a solid QB he is accurate and has mobility (two must's for the WCO) we have a solid Defense and we have a very easy schedule.

the marlins lost another one, what else is new.

Woodcock, Here is some Floyd for you, para que no te sientas mal.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBkTUzKAiXQ

David in LA- The Giants went as far as they did last year because they have one of the top QBS in the NFL with ELI. Defense does not win anymore unless you also have a top QB. If that was the case, the Ravens, 49ers would of won last year. Look at the last 8-9 years the teams that were in the SB, most if not all had great QBS. The Steelers are the only team that I can think off that won with defense and a top, not great QB. You are kidding yourself if you think these 2 mutts, Moore, and Garrard are going to help you. Remember, the Jags got rid of Garrard for Gabbart who was drafted later then Tannahill. As for Moore, he was nothing more then a backup with the Panthers.Just remember, the QB rules apply to all QBS not just the great ones.

Where do you vote on Cote's polls?? what web page is the poll on?
