What the hell kind of name is Ha Ha Clinton-Dix?

I would say it is very funny.

Maybe his name should be Baseball Pullover Clinton-Dix

Certainly, no one's laughing at his name because he played at Alabama, the school with the highest expectations in the toughest collegiate conference in America.

Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix is going to be a good player, he seemed to be the best player in the Packers secondary yesterday.

He also has one of the greatest names in the NFL right next to C.J. Ahh-you and Chris Fuamatu-Malafalla

In my opinion, nothing will beat Tshimanga Biakabutuka. I used to play as the Panthers on NFL Blitz just so I could hear the announcers say his name really fast over and over again.

Seattle already looks like they're in mid-season form, which is kind of scary in the Kickoff game in Week 1.

This is gonna be a tough win for the Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers is one QB that won't be frazzled by the raucous Seattle crowd. As a Seahawks fan, I have to admit he is fun to watch. Too bad his defense is still Swiss cheese.

Green Bay will win, Seattle isn't the same as last year.

Ummmmmmmmm................................No

The Seahawks look even better. Bad news for the rest of the league.

That's true. The question remains, can the Saints beat the Seahawks? I think they can.

They can (in the Superdome). If the Saints have a road to the Super Bowl, it almost* has to go through New Orleans.

* - last year's SEA/NO playoff game was close enough to give me hope.

You're right on that.

I'm not sold on the Saints just yet.

Just imagine if Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada had made the league...as a quarterback no less....

Neither am I. In fact, I kinda have a feeling that the Saints may be in for a bit of a letdown this season. They've definitely earned their spot as one of the top teams in the NFC, so I'm not knocking that, but the general lifespan for massive sustained success in the NFL is usually pretty short, I'd say about 5 to 7 years. Just looking at it from a longevity perspective, the Saints may be closer to that expiration date than some realize.

That's just a hunch though, so don't jump down my throat for thinking that.

I feel as if their defense over achieved last year. IIRC, the Saints defense was pretty abysmal in 2011 and 2012. Maybe I am selling the defense short and they can be as good as they were last year. Maybe getting Byrd will make them even stronger. I am just presently skeptical.

Cleveland has no gamebreaking receivers or running backs since Josh Gordon was suspended and Nick Burleson was cut. They do have Jordan Cameron at tight end though. But they will beat Pittsburgh tommorrow.

Nate Burleson and his career have been far from being "game breaking". Arm breaking, more likely.

ESPN's NFL Countdown is already ruining me with their coverage. "Hoyer may be getting the start today, but all eyes will be on the bench!" What? They've spent 15 minutes analyzing:

  • ...when Manziel will play
  • ...why he is a terrible rookie quarterback
  • ...how Hoyer knows how to actually make good decisions
  • ...but Manziel should play based on hype alone
  • ...which ESPN has manufactured

Stupid. Just plain stupid. "If Manziel plays today, it won't be for football reasons, it'll be for political reasons." Yeah, which you lobbied for. Ugh. I hope Hoyer leads the Browns to a 44-0 victory.

And this "red carpet" schtick is just abominable. They're judging player fashion as they enter the stadiums. Is this E!? Plus their freakin' new shiny set is littered not with photographs of NFL legends or, ya know, something NFL related. No. It's enormous pictures of the Sunday NFL Countdown team.

Fire everyone.

I've stopped watching sportscenter and other shows like that for a while now. I will admit College Gameday was pretty entertaining yesterday. But most of the time I feel like ESPN is turning into the TMZ of sports.

Just makes me sad is all. Ever since Favre retirementgate, ESPN has embraced their ability to perpetuate their own news cycle. That coupled with their total fascination with themselves over the product wounds their products significantly.

I'm not against the network having a glut of personality, as that's what built their brand and made them great, but they need to be better about policing themselves for bullcrap.
