We have the most INFORMATION available now for Cappers, with the INTERNET--
Before the NET we just used our OWN picks and read the NEWSPAPERS and maybe watched the SPORTS CENTRE--
Now we have the MOST INFORMATION available to us with the INTERNET and you would think we SHOULD BE BETTER CAPPERS-
I believe it works like this-- You are trying to MAKE A DECISION on an EVENT that will take place in the FUTURE--
By reading the INFORMATION on the NET, some is GOOD INFO and SOME IS BAD INFO or what I call IRRELEVANT INFO--
Picking WINNERS is nothing MORE than ANALYZING the CORRECT INFORMATION.. There is saying Looking for LOVE in all the WRONG PLACES-
Well in Capping I will make a SAYING-- Looking at the WRONG information will TURN into a LOSING PICK--
Like any DECISION IN LIFE, sometimes YOU KNOW the ANSWER right away, SOME TIMES you need INFORMATION, some PEOPLE OVER ANALYZE INFO which will RESULT in THEM not making a clear CHOICE--
My take is that the INTERNET is kind of LIKE ALCOHOL with regards to CAPPING--
If INTERNET Is used correctly and in MODERATION it is GOOD and can help you get information like BOX SCORES----
Just like ALCOHOL when used EXCESSIVELY it TAKES A PERSON OVER AND CLOUDS JUDGEMENT and RESULTS IN BAD DECISIONS-- Alcohol is that POWERFULL----
INTERNET when used EXCESSIVELY can also INFLUENCE a PERSON and CLOUD his judgement ALSO--
This RESULTS in UNCERTAINTY and SWAYING A PICK--
Ex- TODAY all they WROTE and said on ABC is HOW THE LAKERS HAVE NOT LOST 3 games in a ROW in over 2 years--
They KEPT ON REPEATING THIS-- THis is a INFLUENTIAL STATEMENT-- IT HAS NO RELEVANCE TO THE GAME TODAY-
However the HIDDEN MESSAGE TO MANY is to BET THE LAKERS--
THE ABC and INTERNET will SPREAD that LAKERS BULLSHIT THAT THEY HAVE NOT LOST 3 in a row SINCE 2 years--
INTERNET can be a good TOOL but WHEN USED WRONG OR EXCESSIVELY can be a CAPPERS worst NIGHTMARE--
I wont even TOUCH on forums which are nothing more than A PLACE FOR REASSURANCE---
THe real purpose of a SPORTS FORUM IMO is for people who have EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE of thier HOME TEAM should POST daily BLOGs about their TEAMS so everyone can benefit from the information.
I think the INTERNET IMO is good for an experienced CAPPER but OVERALL I SEE MORE NEGATIVE TO the AVERAGE CAPPER-
I had this crazy dream that I was in the Saints locker room before the Super Bowl--
Sean Payton put on a video showing the devastation of the Hurricane and the damage it did to the CITY and to the SUPERDOME-
The video went on to show families living in the Superdome and houses destroyed by the Hurricane.
Then they showed the victory vs the Falcons in the first game back at the Superdome--
People have been known to accomplish GREAT feats in LIFE when pushed into a corner. I wonder if the Saints staff will MANIPULATE the SAINTS player by USING EMOTIONALLY CHARGED TACTICS such as USING footage of the HURRICANE, homeless people, people hurt, people living on the streets to PUT the players in a FIGHT OR FLIGHT syndrome?
This is likely what the GIANTS did vs the PATS, they likely had the US vs the WORLD mentality and they WON that superbowl.
My dream seemed so REAL. I remember there was no NOISE at all in the Saints locker room.
There was complete silence in the Saints locker room, no one was talking, all the players were thinking about the Hurricane and the City and the PEOPLE of the city and how they are playing much more than a FOOTBALL game-
The Defensive lineman looked like they were ready to ENTER a hostage situation where they were going to BUST in and launch an ASSAULT on would be HOSTAGE TAKERS-- Ie MANNING
(this could be WHY GREG WILLIAMS is saying he will try and HURT MANNING, because I BELIEVE THAT IS THEIR INTENTION)
Not one player was looking at another player, they were all sitting with their heads down in an EMOTIONAL state that could be described as READY TO GO TO WAR--
I remember it so vividly, the players were just sitting there and READY TO GO TO WAR for their CITY- They were taking this not as a GAME but as DEFENDING THEIR CITY FROM ANOTHER ATTACK-
When people are DEFENDING their PEOPLE or TEAM they are capable of incredible THINGS- Men have lifted 2000 pound cars off people who are trapped underneath them- People have swam long distances and survived incredible situations.
The HURRICANE devastated their CITY, they have done well, but NOW look at this as a PERSONAL opportunity to get REDEMPTION and win it for the PEOPLE----
I cannot say the COLTS are playing for the PEOPLE of INDY, they are playing for a football team and primarily as individuals---
My dream made me THINK if this is how the SAINTS are taking this game, much like the GIANTS did vs the PATS can the RESULT be a TEAM REFUSING TO LOSE and doing anything to WIN this game?
PS I HAVE THE COLTS TO WIN IT ALL at 3 to 1 odds also, so this is pretty weird but I had this dream and cannot get that IMAGE of that SCARY SILENT LOCKER ROOM where the players LOOKED POSSESSED and IN ANOTHER STATE OF MIND where it seemed like they were READY FOR A WAR.
If the Saints are READY for a WAR and that VIVID picture of NOT ONE SINGLE word being SAID in the locker ROOM before the game is TRUE I can see them having a shot at this GAME for sure.
To lead a team into battle sometimes it is better to say NOTHING as every member of the team KNOWS WHAT IS AT STAKE and what to DO-
Start off with a RAP from the song Let's talk about sex baby-
Lets talk about the pro bowl, let's talk about Sex baby, let's talk about winners, let's talk about collecting, yeah yeah,
lets talk about Football !
Okay lets talk about a few things in ALL STAR games. Much like in the SENIOR BOWL, a certain team is favored because of STAR POWER and for no real reason. The bigger names on offense are favored in tehse games. Many times the underdog wins because there is no real clear cut favorite--
In this matchup I see a few things while capping this game in my CAPPING COMMAND CENTRE-
I am dialed in of late out of control, like an ANIMAL.
I see a few things that would make me lean towards the AFC--
-Wade Philips a DEFENSIVE coach is coaching the NFC- He is not an offensive type of coach, so that is not good in a all star game where offense is crucial and points are scored-
-Norv TURNER without a playoff game on the line will OPEN the offense up and should call the right plays to score points in this type of game- He knows offense, except for charger playoff games-
-DON MCNABB and ROMO are both inaccurate QBs and both not good passing qbs- They are not good and I dont like either of them throwing vs REVIS and the Raider corner ASOFOGGY? I think thats his name?
-REVIS and ASOFOGGY are both shutdown corners and should do well in this type of game-
-AFC is a DOG which is huge because OFTEN the DOG is the better team in these games-
-NFC has ONE EDGE- the fact that DON MCNABB has DESHEAN JACKSON and ROMO has AUSTIN to maybe throw to. So they know those 2 receivers-
Other than that AFC has the edge IMO--
I am not thrilled with SCHAUB, YOUNG and GERRARD but I think they can win this game with Defense, some offense and should win it still--
I dont like the NFC team really and ROMO and MCBETH imo wont do well in this type of game.
I spoke to the man known as the GURU, he is a football machine with extensive knowledge and this is what he has told me-
He described the game and how exactly it will go down and personally I tend to agree with his assessment-
He said basically people are sour on New Orleans Defense and brough the following points about the Saints-
-They are a Turnover defense- #2 in the league, and you cannot discount this defense- All season long they force turnovers.
-He said they dont really go out and TRY to stop teams like the JETS DO, this is a turnover Defense, they are out to create turnovers- He said they are an opturnistic defense-
-He said New Orleans Defense takes control by blitzing and they are aggressive and they come hard at the QB- he said vs manning they will almost have to take a step back, beacuse when they come to blitz, Manning will audible and that will force Orleans to change their Plan-
He basically said that Orleans will not be able to dictate what the offense does because Manning is so good at audibling.
Overall he said that basically there is little to NOTHING that Orleans can do to stop Peyton Manning from scoring- He said he can beat the zone and beat the man to man and can 100% baet the BLITZ which he did-
- He said that Peyton Manning on superbowl day will the smartest football mind in that stadium. He said he likely knows more about the Saints defense than some of the Saints Defensive starters if you can believe that. I believe it for sure.
-He said the key difference is that BREES is 1 B and Manning is 1A and Brees will go 3 and out and they will punt, he said Manning when he goes 3 and out, they will kick fgoals as he will have moved the team into scoring range-
He cites that as the biggest difference in this game-
He said Indy has the better QB, the better O line, the better Defense and definintely the better receivers. He said Orleans has better special teams with Bush.
He said this will be an offensive game, and that BREES is a good QB, he said he doesent throw bad passes and bad interceptions. He said he threw 3 td's vs Vikings, because he is a very good QB-
He said BREES is very good, but Manning is just better-
He brought an interesting point about REFFING and how it might come into play- He said in the Vikings Saints game, he said in the OVERTIME it was clear the leauge wanted the Saints in this superbowl-
HE said its really simple- FAVRE IS LEAVING- HE IS ready to retire, so there is no need to market him, they need to market their future stars, which is ORLEANS--
He said in this game, the NFL doesent care who wins, but they want a CLOSE GAME, correct me if I am wrong, i read SCOTT GREEN is the superbowl ref and he is the NFL ref that makes all games close, and was the ref wtih the Chargers steelers polamulu INT Td overturned controversy-
On to his pick, he said this will be a CLOSE GAME and INDY will be leading by 3 points in the 4th qtr and they will score a late TD to win 10 points--
I agree 100%, it seems that in big games the spread is always covered with a late TD- Last week Indy scored late to cover, last year Steelers scored late vs Raves to cover-
Coincidentally that is exactly what I THOUGHT and we both had the basic same scoring prediction 34-24 or 38-28 in that range--
I agree and can see this exact scenario playing out, he said Manning will make that LATE PLAY to get that LATE td and the Colts win by 10 points in that game-, but they will be leading by 3 points late in the game and get the cover late--
I have a good bet on the Colts to win it all at 3 to 1 odds at the start of the playoffs.
I have a Drew Brees and Peyton Manning NFL collectible Figure attached to my big screen TV on each corner of the 60 inch Tv.
I came home today and to my shock my Peyton Manning Collectible Figure was on the ground as it fell from my TV and his hip was bent and his knee was also twisted right around.
I bent him back into place and placed him back on the TV, but Peytons left leg is still a bit bent.
I hope this is not a sign that PEYTON will be on his back this Sunday.
My thoughts on the game are that Peyton is a Cerebral GENIUS, he is pretty much one step ahead of the Defense and knows everything the Defense is doing.
The one problem I see with the JETS is this Alien named REVIS, he is bloody brilliant. He has GPS tracking system to locate any ball in the air, has the strength of 20 olympic powerlifters, has the brains of Gary Kasparov the world Chess Champion, has webbed hands like a duck which give him super traction to catch any ball, he has the speed of a Cheetah, in fact he might have 4 legs? He has the footwork of a ball room dancer named Rico, he has the presence on the field like the Great GHANDI, when the ball is thrown he goes after it like the GREAT FAT ALBERT goes after a footlong Sub, he has the looks of a runway model, this man is just too good, he might be from Mars?
Now I worry if Reggie Wayne can beat this REVIS? This REVIS is so good, I swear I saw him blitz one play and somehow he made a tackle 15 yards downfield.
Wayne to his credit might have the best hands in the world, he has the softest hands going, he is probably good with the ladies with his soft gentle touches.
Peyton on the other hand is also an ALIEN. I think he has a super computer CHIP installed in his head as part of a secret government experiment. It basically allows him to analyze the Defense and make the correct read and AUDIBLE.
Why couldnt the Brees Figure have fallen? Is it a sign? Is is nothing?
Is REVIS getting into my head? is REVIS HUMAN? Is PEYTON a CYBORG?
What is going on FOLKS? I need some answers?
