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.
-- 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
-- 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
-- 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
-- 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:
-- Bill O'Brien, impressing job post-Sandusky at Penn State
-- Jimbo Fisher, leading candidate
-- Carroll, McCarthy, Kelly candidates? Please. Lower sights
-- 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
-- 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.
-- Murphy latest transfer, seven since last Thursday
-- Muschamp should quit now
-- Brings in Lane Kiffin to survey offense. Lane Kiffin?
JAY's L.A. GUIDE FOR FLORIDA STATE, AUBURN FOLKS
-- What to see, avoid
Hour Three on The Jay Mariotti Show: December 17, 2013:
WRETCHED STATE OF NEW YORK SPORTS
-- Giants, Eli's 25 INTs, why would Coughlin want to rebuild?
-- 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
-- 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
-- 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
-- Beat Spurs, symbolic win
-- Transcendent Griffin, becoming a complete player, not a dunker/pitchman
-- Parker hurt
-- May be diluted
-- James has ankle sprain, may not play
-- Pacers lay egg vs Detroit
-- Pistons more physical than them up front
UGLY NHL INCIDENT
-- Thornton actually appealing his thuggery?
