Patriots Vs Jets

J.E.T.S JETS JETS JETS. Was the main noise coming from the meadowlands the last time these two AFC champion caleber teams faced off with the Jets prevailing over the patriots 28-14. But this will not be the case when monday night roles around these two 8-2 teams are both looking for a division clinching win. but in my opinion the patriots want it more. they are looking for revenge. after there humiliating loss to the jets in week 2.

Should we be good school?

I read an article writen by Tony Baldasaro that ask the question " Should i be teaching my kids how NOT to be good at school?" in this article the writer talks about how being good at school is not really going to help you in the long run. that is unless you plane to do hat your doing in school for the rest of your life. So in response to his question i think you should not teach your kids how not to be good at school. yes, i do understand where he is coming from , that you don't need to know how to find information that is already known. but by learning how to find this information you could eventually learn how to make your own information to be found. meaning by learning to find information you will learn how to progress that information with your own personnel feed back.

Helmet's, No Helmet's, or Helmet's with no facemask.

The NFL is cracking down on the Head to Head hits made by Defensemen and the action of leading with your head as a running back / wide receiver. What are some ways the NFL could prevent some of these completely unnecessary acts of violence. One way is that they could remove the Helmet completely. This would make it so defense men will want to lead more with there shoulder so they do not hurt there head, and it will also prevent running backs and wide receivers from leading with there head when they are running with the ball. Another way the NFL could possibly prevent these hits are what Mike Ditka Former NFL coach said “I said a long time ago if you want to change the game take the mask off the helmet ,It will change the game a lot. If you want to change the game and get it back to where people aren’t striking with the head and using the head as a weapon, take the mask off the helmet”( http://youbeenblinded.com/mike-ditka-take-the-mask-off-the-helmet/2220) this is a valid point a main reason that this would help is what Ditka went on to say. He said that there are a lot of “pretty Boys” that are not going to want to lead with there head, because they don’t want to disorient there faces. With taking the Mask off of the helmet you protect the players head and make them less likely to want to use it as a weapon.

Are NFL Refree's to protective of the QB.

The NFL today is not what it used to be! The Referee’s are becoming way too protective of the entire player’s not just the Quarterback. But diffidently the quarterback unparticular. I am not saying that there should not be rules to prevent helmet to helmet hits, or low shots to a players knee, but when a referee calls an unnecessary roughness call on a player that is sacking the quarter back, and just so happened to hit his helmet in the slightest bit that is where I draw the line. Yes, the quarterback is the most important player on the team but that does not mean they should get any special treatment from the referee’s. If you are a Professional football player playing in the NFL you should know that no matter what position you play your are going to get hit. And hit hard. Why should a quarter back get any more penalties called in his favor for getting hit a little harder then some one like a Wide receiver, or a running back.

What makes somthing a sport.

What are sports? Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey, and soccer are the main five sports that come up when talking about popular sports. But these are not the only sports out there! People look at sports like Golf, Tennis, cheer leading, and swimming like they are just games or activities that people do for fun. but in retro spec these are sports no matter which way you look at it. a sport is something that lets people either show off there athletic ability or there technique and knowledge of the game that they decide to play.As a Tennis player i hear all the time " oh aha ya he plays tennis.. its not a real sport" but trust me when i say tennis is one of the hardest sports i have ever played in my life. not only do u need an excessive amount of endurance to play matches that are some times 3-4 hours long, but you also need the technique and the knowledge to know how to hit the ball in certain ways and when you need to hit it and where you need to put it. so yes tennis is a sport so are almost all of the other "games" that people use athletic ability.
