Of course, the Celtics could have played along. No, not by wearing short shorts of their own. Rather, by signing a few white guys and putting them all on the floor.
THE PATRIOTS ARE PERFECT
Wow, that was more underwhelming that even my cynical mind would have believed. Going undefeated is a nice achievement, but the buildup was just too much. Not that you can blame the NFL Network. When more than 50 percent of your teams have nothing to play for on Sunday, you might as well focus in on a dominant team.
The argument is out there that we should enjoy the Patriots who are saving us from the mediocrity of parity. But the Patriots just reinforce parity because in order for true parity to exist, there needs to be one perfect team and one winless team -- which the Dolphins almost provided us with. Let's say we go back to the days were each division had three good teams battling for the conference championship. Like the Rams-Cowboys-Vikings trio in the 1970s. Or the Cowboys-49ers-Packers threesome in the 1990s. That was more enjoyable then watching the alleged greatest team of all-time get lit up by Eli Messiah.
- The Chargers looked like they were performing their annual playoff pratfall a week early during the first half of their game with the Raiders. Way to build up the confidence, Hat.
- Art Monk's candidacy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame took another hit when he was passed by Isaac Bruce on the all-time list. Sorry, Lil' Hater.
- Anybody even working today?
The Kurt Warner Machine finished one touchdown shy of the Cardinals club record. And he didn't even start every game. The Cardinals should go back to the platoon next season, because it would work. If Matt Leinart isn't down with that, then maybe he should get familiar with sitting on the bench.
