After the first Sunday in the month of October, only a few teams remain unbeaten. Now thats not too unusual when considering the teams that tend to own their divisions and early-game schedules, hence the The Indiana Colts and New York Giants. But What might come to a surprise is That the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and most importanly the Denver Broncos stand at a perfect 4-0 heading into week 5.B dawkins broncos

Once referred to as the “E”nver Broncos due to their lack of “D”efense, the mile high city  seemingly has been able to force their opponents to run up-hill, or should I say up-mountain… Allowing only 26 points (6.5 per) for their opposition to snack on all season, I guess its now safe to say the “D” is back.

Or Maybe, just maybe the “D” just arrived…

My Philadelphia Eagles are so GM savvy, that they let our best defensive player, and arguably one of the best “DB’s” in the league in “B”rian D”awkins go. Ironically enough, The “DB’s” (Denver Broncos) just needed the right “DB” (Defensive Back) in “BD” (Brian Dawkins) to bring the “D”- back…

SB- I Dare you to try and write this in cursive.. All lower case though, no caps lol..

But thanks to the eagles, the Broncos are now a perfect 4-0.  With the consistent defensive play, this team can make some real noise. Its still too early for me to determine if this team is for real or not, but I’m not about to count these guys out; not with the Alpha male running the show back there barking out  audibles and play actions.. Dawkins was a huge factor in why the Eagles were as successful as they were in the years pass. So why would I expect anything different?

I don’t have any hard feelings towards the departure of Brian Dawkins and the Eagles, but it leaves some what of a sour taste thats comparable to a break up. You think that your the best fit for someone, until you seem them with somebody else and things are a perfect 4-0 … ha! But only time will tell. Maybe they got lucky.. Or maybe their competition wasn’t up to par. Minus America’s team the Dallas Cowboys, the Denver Broncos pretty much beat teams that were beatable. What I’m looking forward to is the team they play next Sunday. The New England Pats blew the Broncos out last year 41 to 7 (cough) EMBARRASSING!

Denver most certainly has a score to settle, and im anxious to see how things pan out. Tom and the Patriots arent as invincible as they once were so this might turn out to be a game after all…

And tune in to see Bret Favre Play against his old team. If the Viks win, then Bret Favre will be the first person ever to beat all 32 teams in the NFL. Wow thats longevity for you..

Pretty Boy Flyod, aka Money Mayweather remains the undisputed champ!

Sit down!

Sit down!

After a 21 month sebbatical, Money Mayweather stepped back inside the square looking as sharp and as spiffy as ever. His opponent, Juan Manuel Marquez. A well respected fighter native of Mexico City, proudly accepted the challenge of taking on the man who’s commonly revered by most as the best pound for pound fighter in the game today (No disrespect to the Pac Man).

Despite the fact that the sport of boxing isn’t what it used to be, “Money” is definitely keeping it ALIVE! He’s everything that the sport needs right now. Mr. Young, flashy and fly himself never lacks charisma and he sure knows how penetrate the minds and hearts of his opponents. Some might say Floyd’s a bit arrogant or even narcissistic, but all in all, Money Mayweather has all the skill and talent to back up all the smack talking that spews from his mouth. 40-0 speaks for itself!

Juan Manuel Marquez, like the majority Latino fighters, is a man of pure courage and resiliency.  His will and determination reminds me of a fighter that once felt the raft of Mayweather a few years back, Ricky Hatton… Marquez has had an exceptional career (50-5-1) so far, but was clearly out of his weight class when going up against the champ. Speaking of which, Juan was penalized 600 grand for failing make weight at 144 lbs. Naturally he’s the smaller fighter. I’m not sure if stepping in the ring @ 142 pounds was a result of falling short of the agreement, or just a simple strategy to help compensate for his lack of speed and agility.

Ok enough of the formalities…

Floyd straight whooped Marquez’s ass!

The fight was almost laughable. After Knocking down Manuel Marquez in the second round, Money knew he had this fight in the bag. Taunting, and dancing around the ring as usual, he just flat out made his opponent look bad. And thats why I like Floyd. He’s like you typical guy from the hood, who loves to talk sh*t and make a name for himself by making the next guy look bad. He’s got the heart to match his ego, and knows how to entertain. By no way, shape or form does the cockiness get to me, because at times the guy is just funny. Now had he got his face beat in a few times, I wouldnt be the fan that I am, but thats just not the case.. Pretty Boy Floyd is more than a fighter, he’s an entertainer. A man who not only knows how to captivate the audience, but always gives the people what they want, a show. The Ultimate hybrid between your prototypical boxer with the smarts and textbook skills to go along with it, and that nigga from the hood with a mean box game; both  incarnated in the same body.

Seeing him out there brings back memories of when we were kids, slap tappin away in the driveway. I know this to be true, because last night at the sports bar, a small scuffle broke out in the mist of the main event lol!

All I seen was the 3 consecutive overhand rights colliding with this guys face. I didnt see how the situation started, but according to my man Larry, the guy who got punched in the face was deserving of it…

So this is the story. We in there all in there looking at the fight. Mind you its crowded as ever in there, and its hard to get where you got to go. So once you get a spot, ya best bet is to stay put. But anyway, the waiters were serving food on the floor where the mass of people were standing. This guy who finishes his plate and tries to go over towards the bar and set it on the counter top so he can get back to watching the fight. This other guy who’s sitting @ the bar is in his way, and refuses to move so the guy with the plate can dispose of garbage. The guy with the plate says “aye buddy, can you let me sit the plate down” The other guy continues to be a prick and ignores his request. So the guy with the plate puts the plate on the table anyway, and the other guy who’s sitting at the bar takes the plate and throws it on the ground. Now who knows what the guy was eating but I’m almost certain that it meal involved some kind of sauce that probably splattered all over his boots lol. A few words are exchanged and next thing you know (what I heard) was a WHOP! I immediately turned around and as I’m scanning the room for the commotion, I see this guy wounding up his right hand, about to deliver the second blow. WHOP! then he punches him again. Ironically, no security came to the scene, and the guys broke it up themselves. The guy who was sitting at the bar, who got punched in the face calmly grabbed his beer and began drinking it as if nothing happened. IDK man, maybe it was the liquor that disallowed  him to feel anything, but he seemed to be unphased by what just happened.

After all the hostility subsided,  almost immediately, the people directed their attention back to the flat screen TV’s. It was as if this was apart of the show or something lol.

I’n not an advocate for violence, but talk about a fun night! I got the two for one deal that Saturday

But all in all, the fight (that came one ppv) was a great one. Thats if your a Mayweather fan. All the Latino’s that came out to support Manuel Marquez slowly started to dip off as the Mayweather fans grew louder and louder.

I would love to see Floyd fight Manny Pacquiao next. Oh yeah, Sugar Shane Mosley comes to mind as well. We’ll see sometime in the remaining months of this decade if Floyd wants to come back. He said on the HBO series 24/7 that he accepted the challenge for the love of the sport. But they dont call em Money Mayweather for nothing! ;^]
