The Cowboys Are Strict Parents

27 Aug

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is going to be under lock and key. Bryant was arrested back in July for a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting his mother. Apparently there was an argument and he pushed her. She didn’t not need to go to the hospital but the police were still called. Although this was Bryant’s first arrest he previous had an altercation in a nightclub in Miami and was also banned from a mall for bad language and sagging pants. The Cowboys are taking no chances on him getting into the trouble again.

The 23-year old will be adhering to some new rules. Here is what he must do:

1. Attend weekly counseling sessions.

2. Have a full-time security detail. They will be with him all the time: practices, games, lunch with his grandma.

3. Cannot consume alcohol or go to strip clubs.

4. He has a 12am curfew every night.

So basically Bryant is like a 15-year old kid. But on the bright side at least the Cowboys care enough to give him rules. When Chad Johnson hit his wife the Miami Dolphins just sent him packing. And he does get a much bigger salary than the average teenager with a contract of $1.34 million yearly.

The Season of the Rookies

21 Aug

The Miami Dolphins wisely choose rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill to be their starter over veteran Matt Moore. That’s makes the fourth rookie quarterback to be starting this season. Tannehill joins Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck, Washington Redskins’ Robert Griffin III (aka. RGIII), and Cleveland Browns’ Brandon Weeden. Everybody expected stand out stars like Luck and Griffin  to win starting positions, Tannehill and Weeden had to prove they deserved it.

For Tannehill, who became a stand-out star in part because of his hot wife, this is a big step-up. Tannehill only started 19 games while playing at Texas A&M. Now he is expected to carry a whole team. If the Dolphins don’t fix their offense than Tannehill is going to have an even tougher time. It is debatable who has more work to do the Dolphins or the Browns. The Browns haven’t been in a playoff since 1999. Weeden is dealing with a really young team and has a lot of rebuilding to do.

The one rookie who seems to be living up to expectations is Luck. The Colts didn’t manage to win their preseason game against the Steelers but Luck managed to help them lose honorably, 26-24. Luck pulled the  Colts from a losing by 14 to winning by 3. Having played only two preseason games Lucks stats are look good having 25-for-49 passes for 363 yards.

So far Griffin hasn’t proven to be as amazing as Luck. Griffin was the number 2 draft pick and a media favorite. So far in the preseason he played one quarter in the first game making 4 of 6 passes for 70 yards which included the games only touchdown. Than against the Chicago Bears, Griffin played the entire first half. In that half he completed 5 of 8 passes for 49 yards.

The media will get a chance to compare Griffin and Luck directly when the Redskins take on the Colts, Saturday August 25th.

Ryan Tannehill or Matt Moore: Who Sucks Less?

20 Aug

If you caught any of the pre-season match-up between the Miami Dolphins and the Carolina Panthers you know that the Dolphins were struggling. The Dolphins lost the game 23-17. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill, 8th overall draft pick, started the game off. Tannehill was 11 of 23 passes for 100 yards. He was also sacked(tackled before he could throw a pass) three times and had four passes deflected(the ball was caught by the other team). Compared to Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton who made 8 of 11 passes for 119 yards and had a touchdown, Tannehill didn’t look good.

But at least Tannehill looked better than veteran QB Matt Moore. Moore played against reserve players and completed only 5 of 15 passes for 57 yards. For the Dolphins it is really a question of who sucked less and the answer is Tannehill. The team is expected to announce within the week which QB will be their starter. The regular football season starts in three short weeks. And the Dolphins have a lot of work to do. They had no blocking from the offensive line which is really their primary job. The Dolphins had no running game which is probably because their offensive line is not blocking. So needless to say Tannehill is going to have a heavy burden if he is named QB.

That’s Painful . . . Chad Getting Dumped By Dolphins

15 Aug

It is interesting how much sports is like dating sometimes. This video surfaced today of Chad Ochocinco Johnson being let go by Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin. I think the only thing that could have made this more painful is if Philbin had lead with “we need to talk.” Luckly, HBO was there to film the who painful ordeal for it’s series “Hard Knocks.” I’m sure HBO didn’t expect to have this much excitement seeing as how the Dolphins were literally the only team who was willing to participate in the series.

You can see in the video Johnson lobbies a little bit to try to stay but it is obvious that Philbin is not changing his mind.

Chad Johnson Loses Everything

13 Aug

It has not been a good weekend for football player Chad Ochocinco Johnson. First on Friday Johnson drops the only pass he was given in the preseason opener game. On Saturday Johnson was arrested for head-butting his new bride/ “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada. Apparently Lozada was upset when she found a receipt for a box of condoms in the trunk of the car. She confronted Johnson only to get head-butted. Johnson claims that it was actually Lozada who head-butted him, although he didn’t have a mark on him.

Just a mere 24 hours later the Miami Dolphins decided to let Johnson go. Coach Joe Philbin says it is merely a coincidence that he is releasing Johnson after his arrest for battery. Philbin had apparently been itching to get rid of Johnson after he proven to more than a handful. Johnson thought he was the star of the Dolphins despite his terrible last season with the New England Patriots. Johnson would barge into meetings and cursed like a sailor in front of the press. Which luckily HBO has caught on tape thanks to the the “Hard Knocks” series featuring the Dolphins.

If things couldn’t get any worse Johnson just lost his up coming reality show VH1 ”Ev and Ocho”(not really sure why it’s called Ocho since he changed his name). Apparently domestic battery is the line that VH1 won’t cross when it comes to reality television. So now Johnson is wifeless, jobless, and even reality televisionless. When reality television rejects you on moral grounds you know you have problems.

No More Ochocinco

23 Jul

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has changed his back to Chad Johnson. Apparently his new wify, Evelyn Lozada, didn’t want to be Mrs. Ochocinco. The name was a reference to his jersey number 85. He’s had the Ochocinco for four seasons. Am I  the only one who is bummed about this? I really liked the name Ochocinco. It made it so much easier to remember him. If anyone should be changing their name it should be Metta World Peace.

Lauren Tannehill Does Maxim

3 Jun

 

Sports sensation Lauren Tannehill posed for Maxim magazine. I’m sorry when I said sports sensation I meant hot chick married to quarterback. If you have forgotten her husband is Ryan Tannehill and he plays for the Miami Dolphins. I am really hoping he has a good season so he can get out of the shadow of his wife. Can’t wait for the issue to hit the stands. And of course we can catch Hard Knocks on HBO with the Miami Dolphins Lauren.

The Dolphins Hard Knocks

29 May

The HBO reality show “Hard Knocks” will feature the Miami Dolphins this year. The show follows players during training camp and gets an inside look at their upcoming season. If you are thinking, why the Dolphins? It is because no else wanted to do the show. The team they really wanted to follow was the New York Jets. I think they were hoping to get an inside look at Tebow verse Sanchez. They approached the Atlanta Falcons, who also declined. And since the Dolphins don’t have any controversy or really anything interesting happening they agreed to the show.

It must be getting off to a great start with both David Garrard and Reggie Bush missing the OTAs, Tuesday. Garrad apparently had house troubles due to a tropical storm and Bush just didn’t go. And before you start thinking that Kim Kardashian is going to pop up on the show, remember she is with Kanye West now. Kardashian previously had a relationship with Bush. But don’t worry I’m sure Ryan Tannehill’s wife, Lauren, will still be there to add some hotness to the show.

Junior Seau Dead

2 May

This is sad news the former All-Pro Linebacker, Junior Seau, was found dead Wednesday in Oceanside, CA. He died of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. The police are investigating to see if it was a suicide. Throughout his career he has played for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots. No one in Seau’s family seems to believe he was capable of committing suicide.

It is weird because back in 2010 Seau was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. After he was released from jail he drove his car off a cliff. At the time Seau claimed he fell asleep at the wheel and it was not a suicide attempt. It is still unclear if his death was a suicide, maybe the investigation shed some light on what was really going on?
