We talk NFL today, how Brady and Belichick need to retire while I find myself rooting for BOTH the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers—which team will seize the Glory by winning Super Bowl L?

WINTER SESSION 2015-16

BLOGPOST #1,891 AT THE AICP-END


If you read my posts, you know I am an ‘alcoholic’
Oildale, CA, 01-25-2016 Monday: Yesterday, the family that was in town came to the house to watch the two NFL games, ‘drink, eat, and make merry.’  I am telling you, watching football is sort of like a nice warm blanket in troubling times as it lifts the spirits and allows me a good excuse to knock the booze down. 
On days such as these, I tend to use a large water glass into which, I put 3-4 shots of gin or vodka and then tell my wife, I am drinking mostly water.  After 63 years of marriage, she knows me like a book and when I tell her ‘I am drinking water,’ she knows what the hell I am doing. 
I have been doing it for so long, however, that the only way the kids know what I am doing is if they look in the garbage bin on pickup day, something they never do because I make sure the empties are stored in the cabinet until I can dump them at work.   
We elders must set good examples for the youngsters
The important thing for me is that I have always set a good example for our kids, I married their mother when she was 15 and I was 20, we married on January 13, 1952 in our hometown of Hanford, California.  I love her, our parents had hoped we could have married later when she was 18; however, we had a bun in the oven and our oldest child, Simon, was born on January 19, 1952 so we just made it across the finish line—no illegitimate kids in this family. 
Our lives entwined ever since our first child arrived in the world and we have done a good job with our kids, grandkids, and even our great-grandkids.  Everyone knows I drink a lot even though I deny it and occasionally, I will pull out a cigar and fire that baby up, too.  Sometimes the family demands I go out back to the picnic table and sometimes they do not, it is what it is, folks—we do what is right .    
The game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots--WOW
We watched the first game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots and I think that the only reason the Broncos pulled off that win is because they were at home and the Bronco defense was powerful.  I almost began feeling sorry for Tom Brady when the various Bronco linebackers were driving him into the turf but the little twit thinks he is going to outdo the great Joe Montana. 
Granted, Brady has played in more Super Bowls than anyone else in recent history but the two losses to Eli Manning and the New York Giants has to weigh heavily on his seemingly fragile mind.  All I can say is that I felt his anguish when he was laying on the ground with this Bronco defender or that atop him smothering him into the ground—it looked painful.  Yes, indeed, I felt his pain.    
I was not truly sure WHO was going to win the game between the Broncos and the Patriots
I was not truly sure who would win, although like many, I rather suspected that somehow the Patriots would pull it off and which, they almost did.  The Broncos defense played superlative, above what one would have thought, especially since the team had a hell of a time really doing anything in the second half of the contest. 
I further think the thing that saved them was the number of times Tom Brady plummeted to the turf, the number of times he had to hurry up and get off some semblance of a throw, or the deuce of interceptions he threw that I counted. 
Moreover, it was clear to me that playing on the enemy’s turf was not something the Patriots can do anymore so the losses they suffered during the season—especially the last game of the regular season in Miami—made them hope against hope that the Steelers would somehow help them in the divisional round by knocking off the Broncos. 
Had that happened, the Steelers would have had to play in Foxborough and with all certainty gone down to ignominious defeat.  Sadly—for the Patriots—it did not happen.  
From this point forward—unless something major occurs, BOTH Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are on the downhill rollercoaster
From this point forward, I think the New England Patriots and both Bill Belichick and Tom Brady will begin to decline.  It is the inevitable way of things, I am sure some players on the roster will blame both coach Belichick and their quarterback and seek employment somewhere else just as Brady’s temper tantrums most likely will propel some to abandon the ship. 
I mean, ‘who the hell enjoys having someone scream in their face?’  It is as though you want to slug them in the jaw but if you do, you will suffer some sort of blackballing at the hands of Belichick, Brady, and team owner Robert Kraft.  \
While at one time, many of the New England players might have feared that occurrence, I now suspect that the more enlightened ones realize that from here on out, it is going to be downhill for them.   They instinctively know Brady is getting no younger and Belichick cannot devise the necessary trick plays to SAVE the day as if he could, he would have
Already, I saw some of the players making excuses during the game that their notebooks and tablets were not working properly so they could not ‘plan’ for changes during the game.  Bullshit, get out the drawing pad and the pen and pencil, go to the ‘x’s’ and the ‘o’s,’ it always worked in the past, when men were men and crybabies were still at home in their mother’s arms.  
I suspect the Broncos are going to face DEVASTATION in Super Bowl L (50)
I suspect the Broncos are going to face a powerful assault in the Super Bowl but it will be Peyton Manning’s final chance to shine.  Yes, he might appear with another team next season but it will diminish his record just as other superstar quarterbacks who have gone to crap teams because of love of game, big paydays, and final shots at glory.  Then again, he might accept the limitations of his age and his surgically repaired neck, and retire from the game whereas the greedy Tom Brady will continue attempting to do what no one else has accomplished before and will risk career-ending injuries and/or loss of face.
My suggestion is that when the time presents itself to leave in style, do it and do not be Joe Namath with the Los Angeles Rams, Johnny Unitas with San Diego’s Chargers or even Brett Favre with the New York Jets or the Minnesota Vikings.
 Go out in style and assume your place in the pantheon of football gods and not among the dribbling has-beens of yesterday’s glory teams—I would hate to see you in a wheelchair with no wife and diminishing funds and credibility. 
What will the Sheriff and the Denver Broncos do against the Carolina Panthers?
As for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, I cannot imagine what you are going to do against the Carolina Panthers.  Cam Newton has to be among the all-time greatest young NFL quarterbacks, he can throw, he can run, and he can land atop his head and neck seemingly without any consequence.  I hope to God the kid does not harm himself or suffer injuries that could make this amazing Carolina Panthers’ dream come to a screeching halt. 
If the Panthers continue on, they have a grand opportunity to become back-to-back-to-back Super Bowl champions and could do something that even New England has failed to do.  As long as the team remains healthy and there are no defections, I see them accomplishing much down the glory road and I hope I live long enough to see them do it.
As a long-suffering Oakland Raiders fan, I have to root for OTHER teams way too often
In closing, I am an Oakland Raiders fan and as anyone knows, who knows the NFL and the Raiders, our glory days have been in the rearview mirror for as long as I can remember. 
Oh, the advent of Derek Carr has given me much hope for the future but until the team brings in the necessary weapons with which, to do it, events compel me to root for someone else and I am rooting for BOTH the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. 
The reason I say this is because Peyton Manning is a sympathetic figure; he is someone with one championship ring and two losses but he has an opportunity to even the score.  The only roadblock he faces is the Carolina Panthers who blew out the Arizona Cardinals yesterday evening by a final score of 49-15 and did it with ease. 
Cam Newton is the future and Peyton Manning is the past, we shall see in two weeks where it goes from here.  I hope both will survive and continue to thrive in whatever they choose to continue doing but we must see what happens in Super Bowl L (50) first.  
Thanks for joining me today, we will meet again tomorrow, the good Lord willing unless, the alcohol consumed today puts me in the hospital—let’s hope not.  Bye.

MONDAY, JANUARY 25, 2016
In 1988, Steve Winwood released yet another big album, “Roll with It,” one that could have been part of the “Back in the High Life” sessions as it featured many of the same musicians.  This album further solidified the position of Winwood as a rock superstar and did very well on the charts.  No matter what you might think about the rock stars that began in the 1960s, they are not fossils but the guiding lights of today.  Other than listening to the originators of all that is modern now, who else do you have to listen.  Sia, the chick who covers her face so she can live in anonymity or someone such as Britney Spears, Beyoncé, or any of the other modern day female singers who seem to be all the rage especially when there is someone such as Winwood to whom to listen?  No, listen to a seasoned pro such as Steve Winwood and this album is GREAT.  Use our link to go to Amazon.com so you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that fits your budget.

  1. Moses shares some poignant observations on the two NFL games we watched on Sunday and as always, the brilliant, brilliant man is in complete control of the conversation. I have to admit that I have seen much sniveling online over the Patriots losing the game to Denver, some of the critical voices blaming coach Belichick as the reason the Patriots could not play at home. Here is the deal: if YOU are a Super Bowl team and the CHAMPION of the previous year’s Super Bowl, then you are a punk. If Tom Brady could not overcome the Denver Broncos on their home field, then he is a punk as are the members of his team sniveling and whining. Enough! You lost, the pretty boy needs to retire because from here on out, it is only going to get worse. I wish I could have seen Carolina destroy the Patriots but it is what it is. Patriots: SHUT THE HELL UP! NO SNIVELING! Please, join him today and see what you think, we welcome your input. Thank you. / Posted by Chef Elvin C.
