A week after they was embarrassed on National television by the Eagles, the Cowboys traveled to Chi-town and made the Bears look worse than what they are. Demarco continues to be a beast of a running back, rushing for 179 yards on 32 carries with a TD. Romo did a wonderful job managing the game, only 5 incompletions with 3 TDs and 0 turnovers. The defense kept the Bears under 10 points for 3 quarters while forcing 3 turnovers. In ten days they will head to Philly for another important divisional battle. I don't expect the Cowboys to play like they did on Thanksgiving, and I think Mark Sanchez will make some mistakes in this game, unlike on Thanksgiving.
As a fan, not going 8-8 does not excite me. I will get excited when we some games in the postseason. Cowboys are one of the best franchises in the NFL, not to mention the second most Super Bowl trophies, with 5. It's no reason for me, nor the team, to celebrate overcoming mediocrity. Celebrate when the Lombardi goes back to Dallas.
Kyrie Irving put on a show in the Garden Thursday Night. With the release of his first signature shoe on the horizon, Kyrie did his best marketing by dropping 37 on the Knicks, 23 of them coming in the first half. People often criticize Kyrie for being an "Iso player" but I think we all can agree that he is one of the most enjoyable players to watch. None of the Knicks guards could stop him, and he abused most of them with his left hand. In the final 10 seconds of the game, with the shot clock ticking down and a 1 point lead, he gave Iman Shumpert a quick bip-bop crossover, driving to the basket with his left hand, put up one of the prettiest tear drop I ever seen, that went high off the glass and into the bucket. Instead of grabbing the ball with two hands, all he did was scoop it with his left and put it up, it was beatiful.
The Knicks still had a chance to win the game, Melo with the ball in his hands in the final 7 seconds. Melo waited until the last 2 seconds to put up a three pointer, that almost went in but rimmed out. Melo probably had his worse game against Lebron, shooting 4-19 with only 9 points. It wasn't a good game to watch. Usually Melo-Bronny matchups are must see TV but neither one was the best player on the court, tonight it was the Kyrie Show.
While the Baltimore Monument was being lit with light for the holidays, there were hundred of protesters who intervene with the festivities but the night was peaceful. I decided to randomly select people that in the area and interviewed them asking them three controversial questions.
*Thank you to all of those that agreed to be interviewed all of your opinions were dead on and needed to heard*
Haloti Ngata will be suspended 4-games for taking adderall which is an illegal banned substance in the NFL. This will force Ngata to miss the remainder of the season, which is a major blow to the Ravens. I think this is a blow because with the secondary being very bad right now, the Ravens need all the big bodies they can use on the defensive line. Without Ngata, the Ravens lost what I thought was the anchor of that defense. Ravens have the Dolphins, Jaguars, Texans, and Browns left on the schedule, and in order for them to make the playoffs, they need to win all 4 games. The AFC right now is so tight that a loss could permanently eliminate the Ravens from playoff contention. I'm not going to say what they need to do but they have to do something.
