Hour One on The Jay Mariotti Show: December 17, 2013:

LOVE FOR THE FIELD GOAL

-- It has become so easy, people want to narrow the goalposts

-- Jay embraces progress, praises the accuracy of kickers

-- Justin Tucker, drops it in from 61, no sweat. Six FGs in 18-16 win

-- John Harbaugh could have gone for first down, doesn't flinch

-- Eight days after Matt Prater broke record with 64

-- Tucker has't missed since Week 2, kick benefited his fantasy team

-- Goalposts 18 feet, 6 inches wide. Keep it that way

-- 13 of most 14 accurate kickers are active

-- Tucker (93 percent), Blair Walsh (90)

-- FG accuracy this year, .865.

RAVENS-LIONS

-- Lions, much like Cowboys, can't rely on them, losers, chokers

-- Matt Elam, yapped about Johnson being old, game-securing pick

-- Stafford is a mess, INT at end, two others, 12 TOs last five, 10 INTs

-- Stafford, 10 INTs, 2 fumbles last five

-- Schwarz can't last unless he wins two and gets to playoffs

-- Ravens move into No. 6 hole, hold tiebraker, NE and at Cincy

-- If Bears win out, they're in. At Philly, GB at home.

TWO ENORMOUS TRENDS

-- Scoring, highest ever. But lot of this isn't good football

-- Defenses have no chance with no rules, attrition, offensive wizardry

-- Best athletes are playing offense, shootouts the norm

-- Fun and spontaneous, never out of game, Pick 6s at all-time high. People want points and offense. On pace 48 ppg, passing records

-- But Arena League-ish, flag football. Very few capable defenses

-- Other trend: Injuries piling up at disturbing rate, removing stars

-- League bigger, stronger, faster than ever

-- Hits to head still enormous issue

-- QB position, injuries killing teams, need quality backup

COWBOYS

-- Romo, biggest mystery in sports, still on tips of tongues

-- Cowboys are good entertainment, though dubiously

-- Dez, apologizes for leaving early, said he didn't want us to see him crying

-- Garrett defends Bryant as great team guy, but out-of-control diva

SEAHAWKS

-- Got a taste of Super Bowl venue in seven weeks

-- Defense punishing, smart. Offense, built around Wilson's mobility and free-lancing and Lynch Beast Mode and receivers that will include Harvin.

-- Carroll, has players say ``Go Hawks'' on media podium

SUPER BOWL

-- Snowmageddon?

-- Over weekend, eight inches, field clear for game

-- Old Farmers Almanac says expect a 'Noreaster. 80 pct. accurate. Really?

-- Since 2003, temp at Newark Airport 23 to 47 on Feb. 2 at 6:30 p.m., snow only three times

-- Feb. 2 is Groundhog Day

-- Have had wicked outside conditions for indoor games, but only the heavy rain and wicked wind in Miami 2007 was notably bad

-- Memorable games in bad weather, the Tuck Rule Game in NE in 2002, the Ice Bowl in 1967

-- NFL wants it to snow.

-- Ticket holders wll get earmuffs, hand warmers, lip balm

-- Media Day will be in Devils' arena, $28.50 admission for fans

 

Hour Two on The Jay Mariotti Show: December 17, 2013:

TEXAS JOB

-- Bill O'Brien, impressing job post-Sandusky at Penn State

-- Jimbo Fisher, leading candidate

-- Carroll, McCarthy, Kelly candidates? Please. Lower sights

BRIDGEWATER

-- Says he might not come out. He'd better.

-- Likely No. 1 pick, with Houston needing a QB

-- Texans could be Chiefs of 2014, have talent in place

-- Rams, with Redskins' pick at No. 2, also might want him.

-- Also watch Derek Carr, brother of David, as potential Top 5 QB

MANZIEL

-- Says wants a ``QB-needy team''

-- Smart kid, growing up

-- Teams will reach for him in first round because need QB

-- Jacksonville, Minnesota, Cleveland will think about it

-- Will be local pressure on Houston to take him, but can't at No. 1.

FLORIDA

WRETCHED STATE OF NEW YORK SPORTS

-- Jets, Rex will be fired

-- Knicks, Woodson doesn't foul Wizards or take critical timeout, should be canned

-- Nets, biggest payroll in NBA history, Kidd can't coach, might not make playoffs

-- Yankees, where is all this going without Cano?

-- Mets, might be better than Yankees, though not by much without Harvey

A-ROD

-- Mike Francesa loses YES Network simulcast because he aired A-Rod rant vs. Selig

-- A-Rod writing tell-all book about MLB, Selig, thug tactics

TANAKA

-- He wants to come to MLB, but Japanese team balks

-- New posting rules, Japan team gets only $20 million

-- Yankees desperately need him, have no ace, Sabathia now a 3 guy

CLIPPERS

-- Transcendent Griffin, becoming a complete player, not a dunker/pitchman

-- Parker hurt

HEAT- PACERS
