Captain’s Pick 3- September 2010

1 Sep

by Captain Oblivious

Welcome to a new post that I will be doing every month. I will pick three random things from the world of movies, games, sports and pop culture that should have your attention. Let us know what is on your radar this month also by commenting below and let the people know what will be occupying your time as fall rolls in.

3. Playstation Move

While Microsoft may have a few more months before unleashing their controller-less fat guy hating Kinect on the world Sony is ready to toss their hat into the motion sensing controller ring this month. Time will only tell if this will be a leap or a midget step beyond what the Wii offers now to the arm flailing video game crowd. Early reviews have been mostly favorable and while I do have a Move reserved I am thinking of holding off until more of the premier titles make their way onto Sony’s powerhouse like Socom or Killzone 3. But being the nerd that I am I will probably be playing Sports Champions by the end of the month.

2. Machete

Robert Rodriguez continues to be one of the few directors that listens to the fans. After Grindhouse came out over three years ago people kept talking about how awesome it would be to have a movie based on one of the faux movie trailers that were inserted between the features. And while I would have loved to see a Werewolf Women of the SS movie Rodriguez decided that he should craft a movie around Danny Trejo’s Machete character. The thing that surprised everyone was the cast that Rodriguez assembled including Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Segal and Robert DeNiro. Get ready to swing down the intestine line (if that makes no sense, after seeing the movie, it will) on Labor Day weekend.

1. Football

You know I can always find some way to insert a picture of Tim Tebow somewhere. It has been seven long months but us sports fans have made it to that time of year where things seem a little brighter because football is back. Fantasy leagues, lazy Sunday afternoons and Saturday kickoffs are here people. Get excited!

NFL 2010- Division Quick Picks

31 Aug

by Captain Oblivious

Can you feel it? Finally after seven long months America’s real pastime is back. I know it has been rough. All of us have had our down days feeling the hole in our manly (or womanly…I don’t discriminate) hearts for the lost love that calls itself football. Well pain no more brothers (and sisters) football is here with open arms.

Today I will go through my quick record predictions going by division. I am no expert nor do I claim to be so please Mr. Superfan out there take these with a grain of salt. If you think the Chiefs are a playoff team tell us why you think so. This is all open to the public. That’s why it’s the internet. Ok…..let’s roll!

AFC East

New England Patriots

2009 Record- 10-6

2010 Prediction- 11-5

Brady (as much as I hate him) is still a premier QB and he will be able to lead this young team to another division title.

New York Jets

2009 Record- 9-7

2010 Prediction- 10-6

One win improvement over last year but far short of the lofty Super Bowl dreams they dream of.

Miami Dolphins

2009 Record- 7-9

2010 Prediction- 8-8

Bill Parcells is slowly building a division contender, just not this year.

Buffalo Bills

2009 Record- 6-10

2010 Prediction- 5-11

C.J. Spiller will wow the fans in Buffalo but the others will bring them back to reality.

AFC North

Cincinnati Bengals

2009 Record- 10-6

2010 Prediction- 9-7

T.O. no longer does a team make. Even talking like Yoda that’s easy to understand.

Baltimore Ravens

2009 Record- 9-7

2010 Predictions- 12-4

Adding Bolden gives Flacco a full receiving core to go with their defense.

Pittsburgh Steelers

2009 Record- 9-7

2010 Prediction- 9-7

If Steelers go 2-2 in Big Ben’s suspension then 9 wins is a good season for the Bathroom Stall Bandit.

Cleveland Browns

2009 Record- 5-11

2010 Prediction- 5-11

Right now the Browns need a bad season so they can draft a good QB. I think Jake Delhomme’s retirement kicks in around November when he hits 65.

AFC South

Indianapolis Colts

2009 Record- 14-2

2010 Prediction- 12-4

The Colts may look to have lost a step but they may still be representing the AFC in the Super Bowl.

Houston Texans

2009 Record- 9-7

2010 Prediction- 10-6

Schaub will pass for 8 million yards again and the Texans will take another step forward this year.

Tennessee Titans

2009 Record- 8-8

2010 Prediction- 8-8

Where last year’s 8-8 seemed like a miracle, this year will be a bit disappointing.

Jacksonville Jaguars

2009 Record- 7-9

2010 Prediction- 6-10

MJD will run all over the field on a forgettable team. What a shame.

AFC West

San Diego Chargers

2009 Record- 13-3

2010 Prediction- 11-5

The loss of LT will not be felt by this team. Rivers is taking over for Drew Brees, a quality QB but just missing a ring.

Denver Broncos

2009 Record- 8-8

2010 Prediction- 9-7

I wish I could say Tebow will make them 16-0 ( me being a huge Tebow fan) but alas it won’t.

Oakland Raiders

2009 Record- 5-11

2010 Prediction- 7-9

If Oakland can win 5 games with “Purple Drank” then Jason Campbell can surely add two wins to that.

Kansas City Chiefs

2009 Record- 4-12

2010 Prediction- 5-11

Hey an improvement is an improvement when you are the Chiefs.

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys

2009 Record- 11-5

2010 Prediction- 10-6

Dez Bryant not carrying pads will be the least of the Cowboy’s worries in Wade Phillips’ last year.

Philadelphia Eagles

2009 Record- 11-5

2010 Prediction- 10-6

That’s right another tie in the NFC East. Only this year the Eagles should get the tiebreaker.

New York Giants

2009 Record- 8-8

2010 Prediction- 9-7

The sleeping giant will keep hibernating for another year.

Washington Redskins

2009 Record- 4-12

2010 Prediction- 8-8

If McNabb can stay healthy a four game improvement should be a success for his first year.

NFC North

Minnesota Vikings

2009 Record- 12-4

2010 Prediction- 10-6

Favre’s last (maybe) season won’t seem as magical as last year.

Green Bay Packers

2009 Record- 11-5

2010 Record- 12-4

The Aaron Rodgers coming out party is over. Now begins the real work. Winning the division.

Chicago Bears

2009 Record- 7-9

2010 Prediction- 6-10

Grossman Light will still not be the answer for the Bears.

Detroit Lions

2009 Record- 2-14

2010 Prediction- 4-12

Matthew Stafford showed some good improvement as the year progressed. Same should happen this year.

NFC South

New Orleans Saints

2009 Record- 13-3

2010 Prediction- 11-5

Playoffs yes. Super Bowl repeat….no.

Atlanta Falcons

2009 Record- 9-7

2010 Prediction- 10-6

A new year brings a more experienced Matt Ryan. Falcons fans should be excited.

Carolina Panthers

2009 Record- 8-8

2010 Record- 8-8

Hi were Carolina remember us? No? Ok we understand.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2009 Record- 3-13

2010 Prediction- 4-12

2002 was sooo long ago.

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals

2009 Record- 10-6

2010 Prediction- 9-7

Kurt Warner left a huge hole that can not be filled by Matt Leinart. Derek Anderson gets them 9 wins. Leinart….6.

San Francisco 49ers

2009 Record- 8-8

2010 Record 9-7

49ers will win this weak division. If I am a 49er fan a playoff appearance is more than I bargained for.

Seattle Seahawks

2009 Record- 5-11

2010 Prediction- 7-9

The Seahawks had a good draft and Pete Carroll’s run will be better than his first…but not by a lot.

St. Louis Rams

2009 Record- 1-15

2010 Prediction- 3-13

Hey triple the wins of last year with a rookie QB should seem like a win.

Lawrence Taylor Makes Ben Roethlisberger Look Like A Cassanova

7 May

by: Captain Oblivious

Given the situation maybe this picture explains it best.

Pro football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested Wednesday night after allegedly raping a 16 year old girl. He has been released on $75,000 bond.

The girl was reported missing by her family in March when she ran away and made her way to New York where she met up with a man, Rasheed Davis, who reportedly beat her and was selling her for prostitution.

Davis took the girl to a Holiday Inn where they met with Taylor who had agreed to pay 300 dollars for sex with the young girl. When she refused Taylor reportedly sexually assaulted the girl.

Who would have thought that it would be Joe Theismann who got off easy with LT? It seemed Taylor had finally turned his life around after years of crack addiction. He participated in Dancing with the Stars a few years back and was a spokesperson for Nutri-System.

And to think this guy beat Bam Bam Bigelow.

2010 NFL Draft Quick Grades

23 Apr

by: Captain Oblivious

Well round one of the 2010 NFL draft is in the books. And it was filled with some good moments (Oakland finally using their high draft pick smartly) and some sloppy moments (basically the entire ESPN broadcast). Maybe it was just me but it seemed like ESPN was not prepared for this year’s draft like they have been in the past. I understand it is live and there are a lot of variables that come into play but as an avid viewer of the draft ever year this was one of the worst broadcasts I’ve seen. Add to that Mel Kiper continually shoving that fu**stick Jimmy Clausen down our throats and it was almost intolerable. Here now is the rundown of the first round and what we think of the pick by a simple grading system. There will be time for discussion later. Gotta get ready for round two tonight. Maybe we will get three more hours of hearing Kiper bash teams for not taking an overrated quarterback.

Hey Mel!! Your wrong every once and a while!! How’s that Mike Williams going to the Hall of Fame working out so far?

1. St. Louis Rams

Sam Bradford- Oklahoma- QB

-Sorry couldn’t resist the picture.

Grade: B

2. Detroit Lions

Ndamukong Suh- Nebraka- DT

-The kid’s a freak. Simple as that. Add him to the signing of Vanden Bosch and the Lions defense may not be a joke anymore.

Grade: A

3. Tampa Bay

Gerald McCoy- Oklahoma- DT

-Guess the Bucs found their next Warren Sapp…let’s hope

Grade: B

4. Washington Redskins

Trent Williams- Oklahoma- OT

– The Skins gotta protect their new investment.

Grade: B+

5. Kansas City Chiefs

Eric Berry- Tennessee- S

– Easy pick. This is the next Ed Reed.

Grade: A

6. Seattle Seahawks

Russell Okung- Oklahoma State- OT

– Makes me think that Pete Carrol may believe as I do that Matt Hasselback is a better quarterback when he in not being knocked down and injured.

Grade: B

7. Cleveland Browns

Joe Haden- Florida- CB

– Thank God Cleveland made the smart pick instead of taking Clausen.

Grade: B

8. Oakland Raiders

Rolando McClain- Alabama- LB

– I’m thinking Al Davis did not make this pick. Because it was a good one.

Grade: B+

9. Buffalo Bills

CJ Spiller- Clemson- RB

– I don’t hate this pick as much as some folks do. There are plenty of QB’s that Buffalo can get through free agency. At least in Spiller you have a RB that is also proficient at kick returns.

Grade: B

10. Jacksonville Jaguars

Tyson Alualu- Cal- DT

– Another Jag pass rusher….meh

Grade: C

11. San Francisco 49ers

Anthony Davis- Rutgers- OT

Grade: B

12. San Diego Chargers

Ryan Matthews- Fresno St. – RB

– Chargers brass know that Darren Sproles is not an every down back.

Grade: B

13. Philadelphia Eagles

Brandon Graham- Michigan- DE

– The only bright spot on Michigan’s horrible team should shine bright on the Eagles defense.

Grade: B+

14. Seattle Seahawks

Earl Thomas- Texas- S

Grade: B

15. New York Giants

Jason Pierre-Paul- South Florida- DE

– The Giants got burned by the Raiders then they burned themselves by taking Paul over Morgan from Georgia Tech.

Grade: C-

16. Tennessee Titans

Derrick Morgan- Georgia Tech- DE

– Jeff Fisher should be calling the Giants front office and thanking them for the early Christmas present.

Grade: B+

17. San Francisco 49ers

Mike Iupati- Idaho- G

Grade: B-

18. Pittsburgh Steelers

Maurkice Pouncey- Florida- B-

– Justin Hartwig isn’t going to be around forever. Even if Big Ben’s Bathroom Stall is up and running in P’burg or not you gotta have a quality center.

19. Atlanta Falcons

Sean Witherspoon- Missouri- LB

Grade: B

20. Houston Texans

Kareem Jackson- Alabama- CB

-This may be my Bama biasĀ  coming out but the Texans made a great pick

Grade: B+

21. Cincinnati Bengals

Jermaine Gresham- Oklahoma- TE

– Kind of surprising. I guess Dez Bryant was too much of a risk for the Bengals? Cause they have never had players with problems before right? With two TE’s already there this confused me a little.

Grade: C-

22. Denver Broncos

Demaryius Thomas- Georgia Tech- WR

– A lot of people are scratching their heads that the Broncos did not take Dez Bryant here but instead took Thomas. I can’t fault Josh McDaniel for sticking to his good character guns here but maybe he should have took a chance on Bryant.

Grade: C

23. Green Bay Packers

Bryan Bulaga- Iowa- OT

– Rodgers spent more time than he should have on the turf last season. This should work.

Grade: B

24. Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant- Oklahoma St.- WR

-With the ghost of Randy Moss still haunting Jerry Jones he traded with the Pats and snatched up Bryant. Roy Williams might wanna pick up the pace a bit in Big D.

Grade: B+

25. Denver Broncos

Tim Tebow- Florida- QB

– They have Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn. Why take Tebow? Umm because Kyle Orton could be injured at any time and Brady Quinn hasn’t proved a thing. Why not take him? And even if Tebow is the number 3 he will be served well by sitting and slowly learning the ins and outs of the pro game until his time comes.

Grade: B

26. Arizona Cardinals

Dan Williams- Tennessee- DT

– Karlos Dansby is gone. Simple pick.

Grade: B-

27. New England Patriots

Devon McCourty- Rutgers- CB

– Bill Belichick is gonna have to realize that his dynasty is no more. Safe picks may not be an option in the future.

Grade: C

28. Miami Dolphins

Jared Odrick- Penn State- DT

– Bill Parcells shows why he is a football guru. The Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year at 28? Thank you very much.

Grade: A

29. New York Jets

Kyle Wilson- Boise State- CB

– Wilson paired with Revis should assure the Jets a return playoff trip.

Grade: A-

30. Detroit Lions

Jahvid Best- Cal- RB

– Gotta start getting Matthew Stafford some help somewhere.

Grade: B-

31. Indianapolis Colts

Jerry Hughes- TCU- DE

– The Dwight Freeney injury hurt the Colts. No one can argue that. This shore’s up the depth at the position. A solid move.

Grade: B

32. New Orleans Saints

Patrick Robinson- Florida State- CB

– The Saints really weren’t aching for a lot. So take the best position guy available.

Grade: B

*Should be lots to talk about tonight in Round 2. Who finally pulls the trigger on McCoy and Clausen? Where will Terrance Cody land? Will Jon Gruden say dumbass on the air again? Will Steve Young ever stfu and let Tom Jackson talk?
