Wentz has been great. As a Lions fan I have to say that the Packers may be overrated. The Lions were able to really come back last week, and I don't care if the Pack played conservatively as they were up 31-3, they still managed to almost blow a lead to a team that is clearly not operating on all cylinders.

I'm going to be fascinated to see what the Pats can do this week. It looks like they may be about 2 seconds from having to use a waterboy as QB... and they'll still win by 17!

I was sure you're a Lions fan Justin 😉
Yes it looked like it would be an easy win for the Packers at first but Lions show their character to stay close in that one. i don't think both teams playing at their best at the moment.
I think Patriots will be just fine, their system is so good and they have so many options in offence that anyone could play QB there i guess.. even the waterboy 🙂

NFL season getting hotter now, my Packers just sucks this season and it's likely for them to miss the paly-offs but what about Detroit Lions? I know there is a guy here who could said something about that.

I don't follow this league closely because I'm more like watching men football that women. It is pretty nice to see that any sport that a man can play can even played by woman. But I won't still make any bet on them I would rather watch them for entertainment.

NFL Payoffs started and wild card weekend was not a disappointment at least not if you aren't some of the loosing teams fan.
Aaron Rodgers just put up a great show in his Packers win over the Giants, and the game against the Cowboys next weekend in Dallas promising to be great one.Atlanta v Seattle too.
And in AFC KC Chiefs v Steelers should be a good one too, Patriots are clear favourites against Houston though but hey you never know in the Playoffs.

It had been a great divisional play-offs this weekend in NFL and I think the 4 strongest teams reached the Conference finals next Sunday.
NE Patriots v P Steelers and Atlanta Falcons v GB Packers, whoever 2 of those 4 reach super bowl would be great but I have two in mind which could make it unforgettable for me, always wanted to see these 2 there...

It should be a great Super Bowl this season,I think the two best team reached it.
Atlanta are just great this season and they took apart Packers who's defence is just ridiculous all season long but against offence of that calibre you just can't afford to play like that, even Aaron Rodgers couldn't make the game interesting.
And Patriots...they just still can do it.

It's been a busy period for me lately,...no I'm not talking about work of course 😀

With the NHL play-offs being just great this season and world snooker championship in progress it's a great time of the year for me.

We'll have Rolland Garrsos and Giro'd Italia coming soon so it's really full schedule for the ordinary sports fan.

We're about a week away to the start of Tour de France, with Froome not in the usual form this season we could might have a new winner, I marked some of my picks bellow Ed that I think those are underestimated raiders, do you have any opinion on that one Ed?

Of course I'm Australian so take my opinion with a grain of salt but I'd get on Richie Porte. He has won two tours this year already, he's in hot form. I like Nibali but its hard to see anyone other than those first 3 favourites winning it as they have the strongest teams.

Yeah you're right Ed, they've got the teams but who knows...I would love to see Richie fighting for the end victory, I think he has the legs but we have to see what he's made of, does he has the head? Because from what I've seen so far from him he's influenced when Froome is alongside him, he have to try to get out of his shadow, and I think now's the perfect time of doing that.

It was the Sky team which dominated in the first stage of the Tour which was a time trial.
It's funny how much the fortune has a finger in all that, Geraint Thomas was brutally forced to leave the Giro when he was in really great shape (and potential winner I think) and so much helped by the fortune today when the weather conditions really helped him - like it was ordered - funny...

Did you see the crash today? It was a decent one that took out some of the main contenders on a slippery wet road but thankfully no-one was seriously injured.

Yeah they were lucky not to be heard, that's why it's ridiculous to make a predictions for the end winner after day1 time trial, half of the favourites could it be out next day...like what happened to Valverde.

You right it may be early but Froome already has a pretty handy lead over his nearest rivals.

Did you saw what Sagan does to Cavendish Ed, I never liked him but he crossed the line with that... It should be official they kicked him out of the tour...and I think rightly so.

Here's the most interesting analysis that I found of what happen from the Eurosports expert Brian Smith(the video is down the page)

I saw it from a couple of angles and in slow motion but I can't work out whether it was intentional or not. The elbow that everyone is talking about clearly happened after they made contact. It seemed to me that he didn't even touch Cavendish with it and maybe was a result of him wobbling on the bike himself. I think that there would have been a crash even without the elbow. But I have no bike racing experience so take my opinion with a grain of salt! I guess its one of those ones where you have to trust the experience and judgement of the experts.

Yes the elbow didn't hit Cavendish but I'm sure Sagan knew and felt where the barriers were and any kind of movement would it make the Brit going down as it happened,and he has already closed him with the bike not saying it's intentional but there was something mean in it you can sense it.
I saw that Sagan was guilty for the other incident in the stage too in which Geraint Thomas fell down, beside that he tried to elbow Greipel the previous day on the inter-medium sprint, just missed him but quite a lot of accidents for an innocent man, don't you think?
What could it be said at least is that Sagan was careless and I think there was more in those accidents, now many people are upset because of his suspension from the tour but I'm sure there would it be few displeased too if he was banned only for the stage, it was tough decision for the race judges I think but no one is bigger than sport itself, Sagan is not the whole cycling, Federer is not Tennis and Mesiraldo is not football, should I said Romessi 😉

I agree with that last part and I think its a good thing. I think these days after all the scandals cycling has had over the past few years the authorities are very keen to clamp down on everything.

Yesterday was the first real test for the general classification contenders, what you think Ed?
I think they all underestimated Aru, who looking very fresh and I think he's a real top3 contender and even maybe for the end win because Astana have a good squad too.
Quintana proved once again that Giro and Tour in same year is almost an impossible task, although I expect he would maybe improve in the third week.
Not much of a differences between the other favs.

It was brutal stage at Tour de France today as both Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas had crashed out and are now out of the race, hopefully Porte is OK after the horrific looking crash, is that due to the bad luck or he just really couldn't sustain the pressure and always fails at the biggest events in the end? The same could be said about Thomas I guess, although the expectations trough him couldn't be compared to those thorough Porte.

Yeah that was one bad looking crash. They are saying he has a broken collar bone I think. It looked like he just took the wrong line then lost control whe he went off the road so I'd say bad judgement rather than luck. You're right that it has been pretty brutal, not just that stage but lots of crashes and incidents so far this year. Froome looks to be in control though so long as he can stay on the bike!

Yeah I think you're right Ed it was misjudgement from Porte side but Martin paid for that as well.

Richie Porte is in Austaralian hospital already, said he enjoying the food and the view - something which you could rarely say about hospital I guess - at least from my experience 😉
But he recovers well and that's just great when we know how bad the crash looked.

😮 Quite a surprise today or what ?

I think it was obvious the Froome is not in great shape and also it was a mistake to let Aru (who looked very fresh) go in that early stage when he make up 20 sec but it was still a surprise how bad Froome was today I think, Landa not helped him in the last meters which was also quite egoistic I think.

But we have a race now or what Ed, first 4 in 35 seconds and if someone has told me that Uran will be in the mix for the end victory I would of told that the guy is crazy?!
Now they all should believe Froome could be beaten but still he has the best team and a time trial stage to make up some time, the question is how much time he would of lost before that?

Quite interesting few stages at Tour de France last couple of days, and after he lost the yellow Froome is back with the jersey but first 4 in 29! seconds and Dan Martin who's fifth at 1min12sec is at that gap mainly because his bad luck.
I'm certainly expecting a great 3rd week with a few tough mountain stages in the Alps still to go plus a time trial...so should be great.

I haven't watched any of the last few days actually. Froome gave up the lead but then took it back and naturally all the news here has been about Matthews because he is Australian and has won a couple of stages. But it is good to see a close race where a few guys have a chance of winning it still.

Yes there were some really interesting stages during that time Ed, today too, Kittel has retired so Mathews is almost certain green jersey winner, I think he is very impressive at this tour.
Aru lost some time and maybe he should attack tomorrow so should be another interesting mountain stage.

Nothing deciding at the tour today so it's pretty much on Froome to loose it now, only mechanical problem or some kind of a crash could stop him winning the race I could imagine.
Barguil should be considered as the future Tour de France winners I guess, he was very impressive this year...
