NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation: 2014 Week 8 Wrap-Up

It’s almost Halloween, and according to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the only thing more frightening than all of the ghosts, goblins, and ghouls associated with this time of year is the beating he laid on Jay Cutler and his Chicago Bears.

You can see more of Brady’s gloating while finding out what the rest of the league’s signal-callers have to say by checking out the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation, courtesy of ProFootballMock.com (check them out for more hilarious mock convos).

San Francisco Giants Win World Series After Beating Royals in Game 7 (Videos + GIFs)

San Francisco Giants Win World Series

It’s an even number year, so I guess it only makes sense that the final headline of the 2014 MLB season reads “San Francisco Giants Win World Series.”

After winning it all in 2010 and 2012, the Giants made it three championships in the past five years by going into Kansas City and becoming the first team since 1979 to win Game 7 of the World Series on the road.

So how did the Giants break the trend and become the first visiting team in the past 10 Game 7′s of the Fall Classic to escape with a victory?  Good question.

San Fran opened the scoring in the second inning by cashing in two runs on sacrifice flies from Mike Morse and Brandon Crawford, but the Royals quickly answered with two runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning.  However, the Giants would regain the lead when Morse recorded his second RBI of the game to put his team up, 3-2.  And shortly after, Giants manager Bruce Bochy decided it was time to bring in the soon-to-be World Series MVP, Madison Bumgarner.

Bumgarner entered the game in the bottom of the fifth with a 2-0 record and a 0.56 ERA in his previous two starts this series.  And he would shut the Royals down for the remaining five innings of the game, allowing only two hits and no walks while securing the 3-2 victory and the Giants’ eighth World Series championship in franchise history.

Here’s a look at the final out of the game, and the series:

And here’s Bumgarner celebrating with Giants catcher Buster Posey following Pablo Sandoval‘s catch on the final out:

Of course, after the party on the field, there was a locker room celebration for the winning team:

And after going 3-0 with 17 strikeouts, just one walk, and a minuscule 0.43 ERA in 21 innings of work during his three World Series appearances against the Royals, Madison Bumgarner was a no-brainer for World Series MVP honors.

All in all, it was an exciting World Series Game 7 between the Giants and the Royals that appropriately wrapped up one of the most exciting postseasons in MLB history.

Now all that’s left to do is sit and wait to see how many beers Madison Bumgarner can chug as part of his celebration this time around.  Stay tuned.

 

NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation: 2014 Week 7 Wrap-Up

There were plenty of interesting stories that developed during an action-packed week 7 of the 2014 NFL season.  The Jacksonville Jaguars finally won a game, while the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks lost another.  But once again it was Peyton Manning dominating the headlines.  That’s because the Denver Broncos quarterback added yet another prestigious record to his already impressive résumé.

During a 42-17 drubbing of the San Francisco 49ers, Manning threw for four touchdowns. That put him at 510 (and counting) for his career, two more than previous record holder Brett Favre’s 508.

With the career touchdown record now in his possession, you would expect Peyton to be more eager than anyone to discuss last weekend’s happenings.  That’s why he leads off the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation, courtesy of ProFootballMock.com (check them out for more hilarious mock convos).

Here’s the NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation for Week 7:

Most Sports Records Are Meant to Be Broken, But Not These Ones

Wilt Chamberlain 100 sports records

You should probably never say “never” in sports, but there are some cases where the term’s use seems more than reasonable—and in some cases, it’s even necessary.  That certainly applies to some of the records that have been set in various sports.  After all, you can’t possibly believe some hockey player will someday come along and score 92 goals and 215 points in a single NHL season, or 894 goals and 2,857 points in their entire NHL career—especially with the way the game is played and the caliber of goalies nowadays.

Surprisingly, the aforementioned NHL records, which all belong to “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky, didn’t even make The Drop’s recently released list of “Sports Records That Will Never Be Broken.”  So which records did the people at Champs feel would never be broken?  Were Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hit streak, Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 undefeated record, Cal Ripken’s iron man streak, or Rickey Henderson’s 1,406 career stolen bases impressive enough to make their list?

You can find out the answers to all of these questions by checking out The Drop’s list of “Sports Records That Will Never Be Broken” here.

NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation: 2014 Week 6 Wrap-Up

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys provided us with one of the biggest surprises of the 2014 NFL season when they walked into CenturyLink Field and overcame Russell Wilson, the Legion of Boom, the 12th Man, and just about everything else the Seattle Seahawks could throw at them, en route to a 30-23 victory.

The Cowboys’ victory over the defending Super Bowl champions was easily the hottest story to emerge from week 6′s slate of games, and it helps us kick off the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation, courtesy of ProfootballMock.com (check them out for more hilarious mock convos).

Week 5 of the 2014 NFL season was filled with many milestone moments, from Peyton Manning’s 500th touchdown pass, to Tom Brady surpassing 50,000 career passing yards.  And that’s just the start.

Demaryius Thomas also broke the Broncos record from most receiving yards in a single game, the Cleveland Browns recorded the biggest come-from-behind victory in league history, DeMarco Murray became the first running back in 39 years to open the season with five straight 100-yard rushing games, and….well, I can go on forever, but I won’t.  Rather, I’ll leave you with the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Facebook Conversation, courtesy of ProFootballMock.

NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook: 2014 Week 3 Wrap-Up

Through three weeks of regular season action there are only three remaining undefeated teams in the NFL, and Peyton Manning’s Broncos are not one of them.

As you’ve probably already assumed, that loss isn’t sitting too well with Peyton, especially because it came at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks—who also beat him during last year’s Super Bowl—after he drove his team the length of the field to tie the game with less than a minute to go in regulation.

So what did Manning have to say about his overtime defeat in Seattle?  You can find out by checking out the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook, courtesy of ProFootballMock.com.

We’re just two weeks into the 2014 NFL season and already we’ve been treated to plenty of surprises.

In addition to seeing 2013 basement dweller like the Buffalo Bills and the Houston Texans get off to a 2-0 start, this season has also seen 2013 playoff teams like the New Orleans Saints, Indianapolis Colts, and the Kansas City Chiefs get off to 0-2 starts.

Who would have thought?  Not the NFL’s quarterbacks, that’s for sure.  See what they have to say about the opening couple of weeks in the latest edition of the NFL Quarterbacks Conversation on Facebook, courtesy of ProFootballMock (check them out for more hilarious mock football convos):

Expect to See The Following Sports Moments Unfold This Fall

Aaron Rodgers the drop

Sports fans across North America will tell you that the fall season is without a doubt the most wonderful time of the year.  Not only is it a time when our Saturdays and Sundays are taken over by the madness that is NCAA and NFL football, but it is also the season that is synonymous with the beginning of the NHL and NBA seasons, as well as the MLB’s World Series—which is referred to by most as “The Fall Classic.”

Because of this sudden influx of popular sporting events, it can be tough to keep track of everything that is going on in the sports world throughout the fall months.  Luckily for us, the people at “The Drop,” by Champs Sports, have put together some predictions for the fall season in an effort to inform us about what is happening in sports before it even happens.

Their predictions range from the obvious (like Aaron Rodgers lighting up NFL secondaries), to the unimaginable (like the Buffalo Bills actually surprising us by being a good football team).  To check out all of their sports predictions for the fall season, visit The Drop here.

The NFL Simpsonized by Bleacher Report (Pics)

NFL Simpsonized

The NFL and The Simpsons have been the source of two of Fox’s most popular television programs over the past couple of decades.  So Bleacher Report and artist Adrien Noterdaem collaborated to do the obvious thing and mash the two together to create “The NFL Simpsonized.”

The NFL Simpsonized recreates popular players from the National Football League in The Simpsons form, and the results are pretty awesome.

Most of the pieces from the NFL Simpsonized collection are pretty standard.

There’s Peyton Manning doing one of his classic Manning Faces…

There’s Tom Brady looking handsome…

There’s Marshawn Lynch with a pack of Skittles in his hand…

And there’s even Colin Kaepernick doing his patented Kaepernicking pose…

And then, for some strange reason, there’s Jay Cutler smoking a butt…

Even though I’ve never seen it, for some reason smoking a butt on the football field seems like something that is sooooo Jay Cutler.  So kudos to Bleacher Report and Adrien Noterdaem for thinking about it and applying it to their collection of The NFL Simpsonized images.

Here’s Peyton Manning’s Mock Text Convo With Wes Welker About His Drug Suspension

Wes Welkers‘ suspension following a positive test for amphetamines has been one of the most popular topics of conversation around the NFL this week.  And while Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning would rather not talk much about the loss of his reliable wide receiver with the media, it doesn’t mean he isn’t privately discussing the matter with Welker.

“Mean Tweets NFL Edition” on Jimmy Kimmel Live Features Erin Andrews, T. O. and Others (Video)

Mean Tweets NFL Edition Clay Matthews

Social media has done many great things for society, but it has also come with its fair share of negative effects—one of those being the scrutiny and hateful comments that can easily be delivered from one individual to another.  No one reminds us of that very fact better than Jimmy Kimmel, who enlightened us with “Mean Tweets NFL Edition” during his late night talk show last night.

In this edition of “Mean Tweets,” Kimmel enlisted the services of NFL superstars like Terrell Suggs, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Vernon Davis, and Clay Matthews.  And in addition to those current stars, we also get to hear some mean tweets from a few former players like Terrell Owens and Keyshawn Johnson, as well as Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews.
