Russel Wilson

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

As we approach the post season for one of the most popular sports in American, I wanted to visit the offensive captain’s position. We will take a look at the best quarterbacks in the game and what to look for in a good qback.

 

  1. Passing accuracy is what I would place at the top of the list, due to its ability to change a game in a hurry.

  2. Knowledge of common offensive sets as well as obscure ones that are on the very last pages of the play book.

  3. He who can find order amid chaos is a God, Staying cool in the pocket and under pressure is an invaluable trait in football and in life.

  4. A good QB, must know the opposing team.

  5. Know how to find high gear when the pressure is on.

Giants prepare for Season Finale

The 2-13 New York Giants are preparing for their season finale against the Washington Redskins in a disappointing season.   

B.J. Goodson, middle Linebacker who recently joint the I.R. along with Landon Collins who joined the list yesterday outlines the kind of season Big Blue has had for 2017 walking away with a .133 winning percentage.   Most Giants fans are hoping for a quarterback change in the coming season, its a toss up whether or not that will happen despite the 5 loss streak.  

The storied team came off a promising 2016 season to flop in 2017.  Just two years ago, the team retooled the defense and warmed over the offensive line only to flop when Odell Beckham III broke a leg early in the season.  

We are all geared up and ready for a playoff season.

LaVar Ball and the Big Baller Brand are making waves in the basketball world.  The entrepreneurial explorer announced he would open a Junior Basketball Association paying players to play until they qualify for the NBA. 

He hopes to find 80 players to fill 10 teams that will play in NBA arenas in Dallas, Atlanta, New York and Atlanta.  He spoke with a television sports station recently saying, "This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts and we're going to pay them because someone has got to pay these kids."

While Universities enjoy the talents of the young men who play, in exchange they receive tuition and scholarships, while the schools make millions on attendance and television rights.

Former NFL Players and current team owners Jerry Richardson of the Carolina Panthers has announced that he would be selling the franchise amid allegations of abuse in the work place.

No only is Richardson accused of making sexually suggestive comments and requesting foot rubs, he has settled at least four complaints. According to new reports at least four former panthers employees received significant monetary compensations due to inappropriate workplace conduct and comments.

The agreements came with non disclosure agreements, preventing employees from discussing the incident. On the condition of anonymity former employees made a running joke of the owners sexually suggestive language. In one report it was said about Richardson's actions, “He was the boss. It was [viewed] more of a creepy-old-man thing than a threat.”

As many American expected, LaVar Ball says, Trump did absolutely nothing to help with his son and three other UCLA Basketball players being released and charges of shoplifting dropped in China. 

He[Ball] said on Friday, "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out."

Trump bragged last week that he spoke with President Xi Jingping of China about the case and asked for thank yous form the players. They gave it. 

The students were accused of stealing sunglasses from a high end department store in China. In social media lying Trump said, 'Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?' he tweeted. 'They were headed for 10 years in jail!'[SIC]

This would not be the presidents first time lying an it certainly won't be his last.

Martellus Bennett has been cut from the Green Bay Packers after being accused of failing to disclose a medical condition designation. 

Ted Thompson General Manager said on Wednesday after Packers practice. The Packers are expected to file a grievance to reclaimn the $4.2 million in remaining prorated signing bonus money. 

The 31-year-old Bennett is now subject to waivers, the remaining teams have until the close of business on Thursday to submit a claim on him, if not he becomes a free agent. 

We have not covered a lot of NFL recently, I have personally not covered the game due to the foul taste in my mouth after the owners pushing against a protest to shout out about unarmed Americans being shot and killed by police officers based on their race. 

I'm not loving the NFL.

New York Football Giants Memorialization

Giants Eli Manning

Scribe: Lucy Osbourne

Email: lucy@thethinkering.com

Sports expert, Max Kellerman says Eli Manning quit on his team during the blowout loss in Week 9 versus the Los Angeles Rams. 

For months I and others with the Thinkering have said the problem with the New York Football Giants is the quarterback, Eli Manning. Finally others are seeing what we have seen all along. Its unfortunate head coach Bob McAdoo will be looking for a job by the end of the season, becoming a causality to the poor job done by Manning. 

The 1 and 7 Giants have conceded to a lost 2017-2018 season. The only positive that can be stated about the qb and this team is that the rugged Manning is set to start his 208th consecutive regular season game against the Niners, which will tie him with his older brother Peyton manning for the second most by a quarterback in NFL history.
