Well I am back once again to give you my completely wrong and irrelevant opinions on this wonderful sport of football. Remember Studs & Scrubs will only involve the best and worse performances on playoff teams. Well week 15 is in the books let’s get to this.

All Hail Megatron!

Studs!

1. They have done it again! The Lions that is. With their playoff hopes still uncertain the Lions stared defeat in its eyes only to overcome and win late. Led by none other than Megatron himself who finished with 9 catches for 214 yards and 2 TD. The game had the ambience that no matter what the Raiders did the Lions would win. After two unsuccessful throws to some random players on the Lions, Stafford decided let’s just win this and threw the game winning TD to Megatron. He is clearly top 5 receivers in the league right now, and for this moment he was able to save the Lions yet again. The Lions are playing the Chargers this weekend, and need this win to clinch their first playoff berth since Giga pets were relevant. This would be great after their pathetic 0-16 record in 2008. Talk about a good turn around. Anyway, Megatron simply cannot be stop when the game is on the line. However, Lions will need much more than NFL Stud Megatron to defeat the surging Chargers on Saturday.

2. Would you be shocked if Drew Brees won the MVP? The favorites are still Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, but Brees has the Saints at 11-3 and probably the only team who can score point for point with Mr. Discount Double Check. Drew Brees will set many passing records this season, and has definitely put up MVP numbers. Brees threw for 412 yards and 5 TD last week against the Vikings. If he played the whole game he probably would have thrown for 7 or 8 TD. In opening day Brees was only a play away from beating the defending SuperBowl champions. He is top 3 QB’s in the league, and one of the greats of our time. The Saints believe that Brees will score whenever touches the ball. He won’t make that mistake that cost his team the game, so be aware GB the Saints are extremely hot right now. NFL Stud Drew Brees is on a mission.

3. It is very unlikely the Seahawks make the playoffs, but mathematically they are still in the hunt. Tavaris Jackson is playing ok football, and Marshawn Lynch is an ultimate coon, but when he is in “Beast Mode” he just cannot be tackled. The Seahawks manhandled a very injured Bears team, with good defense and an efficient offense. They are the team you overlook and they just end up beating you because they have nothing to lose since everyone underestimates them. An overlooked team with a good running game is very dangerous. Prime example is last year they upset the Saints first round in the playoffs as Mr. Taste The Rainbow ran the greatest 62 yard run ever. This may mean absolutely nothing in the next two weeks, but right now Marshawn Lynch has the entire Seahawks team in “Beast Mode”.

Scrubs!

How come Peyton doesn't get sacked?

1. When the Ravens decide they are going to lose, they lose bad. Here is my problem with the Ravens it is similar to how the Miami Heat celebrated as if they won the NBA Championship after beating the Celtics, but went on to lose in an ugly fashion to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA finals. The Ravens vs Steelers rivalry is one of the if not the best rivalry in football, but that mentality is exactly what will keep the Ravens from the SuperBowl this year. They have focused so much on beating the Steelers. It seems that is the only time I have seen them play great football. Other than the season sweep of the Steelers the Ravens have been average at best. This season they have lost to the Titans, Jaguars, Seahawks, and Chargers. Unless the Ravens realize their are 32 teams in the NFL instead of just one they will NOT make a run this year in the playoffs.

2. The Little Giants have lost 5 of their last 6. Their only victory game against my Cowboys in a game where the Giants still didn’t look dominant. This past Sunday the Washington Redskins embarrassed the Little Giants on both sides of the ball. Eli went back to the Eli that I know and love. The Eli who throws zero touchdowns and 3 interceptions. LOL. I still believe the Giants are in a slump they won’t get out of tomorrow against the Jets. The Giants have receivers who can’t catch the football talking trash. Eli after being shutdown by the Redskins defense now faces the Jets defense led by Revis who will shutdown anyone who comes his way. The Giants are scrubs, and on Saturday we will see the complete collapse of Eli Manning and The New York Little Giants.

3. Just Lose Baby is the new theme in Oakland. The Raiders had a chance to close the gap between them and the Denver Broncos, but in the fourth no one could make that one play finish the game. I expected this because they are led by a USC quarterback. We all know nothing good can come from quarterbacks from USC. Since joining the Raiders Carson Palmer has thrown 10 TD, but 13 interceptions. How’s that for a TD to interception ratio. Good teams know how to finish their opponents, and the Raiders just cannot finish their opponents which will give the Denver Broncos a playoff berth. Thanks a lot you scrub from USC Carson Palmer.
