People who made February

Posted: March 1, 2009 in MLB, NBA, NCAA, NFL, Super Bowl, Tennis

Let’s take a look back at the playmakers and headliners of the month of February

Of course, two football players: Santonio Holmes and Larry Fitzgerald for their play in the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams for their dominating performances in the Australian Open.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization for cutting good players…and signing some good players. Ditto for KC.

The Big Fundamental/Aristotle/Shaqtus/Shaqawockee whatever you want to call him for being the People’s MVP of the All Star Game.

Also Kobe and LeBron for the MSG show they each put on.

Of course, Alex Rodriguez for the media s**tstorm he created. Thanks! I really love watchin ESPN tell us about every mundane thing you do in your day from now until the end of the baseball season. Appreciate it!

Michael Vick for gettin to go back to VA. Keep trainin and you’ll get another shot.

Jim Boeheim and Jim Calhoun for reaching college basketball coaching milestones.

Oddly enough Blake Griffin for showing us through his absence just how crucial he is to OU’s tourney chances.

Not only did the Chiefs acquire Cassel but Jay Cutler was dangled in a deal trying to acquire Cassel in Denver. Then he found out about the Broncos trying to deal him and he wants out.

It’s like the Chiefs have already won the Super Bowl! Today can’t get any better. Now the franchise quarterback wants to play elsewhere. God is good all the time! All the time God is good! 😀

The particulars that got Cutler’s draws in a bunch.

There’s another part of the trade of Pats QB Matt Cassel that is now coming out that has one Pro Bowl AFC quarterback right out peeved off at his team. That QB is Broncos thrower Jay Cutler, who was almost part of a mega three-way deal that would have sent him to Tampa Bay with Cassel ending up playing for his old offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in Denver.

Ha ha! Now before us Chiefs’ fans read too much into this. The Broncos might do what they can to make him feel better.

He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

B Griff is back and diving over announcer’s tables he’s so happy to be back.

Some examples:
He went airborne sideways to chase down that loose ball, flying over the scorer’s table near the Red Raiders’ bench to try to shovel the ball back into play.

He was unsuccessful, but bounced up a couple of seconds later to a round of applause from Texas Tech fans.

Now the Big XII tourney gets very interesting. KU vs. OU for the title! BEWARE THE PHOG!

Big Big BIG BIG UPS to GM Pioli. Never in Stank-0’s wildest dreams did he think the Chiefs would get Matt Cassel. Pioli has made Stank-0 a believer, Cassel is the new starting quarterback for the Chiefs!!!!

Stank-0 expected Pioli to take about 2-3 seasons to start putting some offense on the field. The GM’s timetable must be a bit faster. That means that the playmakers will have to be at the OTAs on GP, *lookin at Dwayne Bowe*

After putting the franchise tag on Matt Cassel as insurance for their two-time Super Bowl MVP, the Patriots shipped Cassel and linebacker Mike Vrabel to Kansas City on Saturday. The Chiefs gave up shockingly little — the 34th overall pick in the April draft for both players.

Honestly, Pioli got Executive of the Year on lock and the season hasn’t even started yet! BALLIN!

Stank-0 also wonders how this will effect TGon’s decision to leave KC.

That alone won’t do it, but it’s a step in the right direction. A veteran linebacker and an up and coming quarterback, in a weak AFC West. Combine that with the fact that Tomlinson is declining and Cutler is on the trading block. The Chiefs could steal the AFC West with a plastic gun right now.
