Sports Talk

This happened last year too. The Bulls made to the top ten and lost to fall way down. When the Bulls lost to Pitt on Thursday night, they most likely lost all hope of a national title. One way of looking at it is they have come along way, and hopefully only get better.

The Coach On ESPN NEWS
For any of you wrestling fans out there, former WWE Announcer and WWE Raw General Manager Jonathan "The Coach" Coachman is now a sports anchor for ESPN NEWS, ESPN's 24 Hour news channel. I don't know the details of why Coach left the WWE, but he has seemed to have found his calling on ESPN. I guess he did'nt want to follow in the footsteps of all of the other wrestlers that leave the WWE by joining TNA Wrestling.

Lane Kiffen And Scott Linehan Fired!
It's week 5 in the NFL and two NFL teams have already fired their head coaches. Kiffen, the coach of the Raiders was his days in Oakland given his recent squabbles with Al Davis. The Raiders haven't had a good coach there since Jon Gruden's days there. Bill Callahan took the Raiders to the Super Bowl the year after Gruden's departure but it's turned into a complete clusterf**k ever since. Scott Linehan, the coach of the Rams lost his grip on his team along time ago and benching Marc Bulger put the icing on the cake.

The Rays are 2-0 in the ALDS leading Chicago. The series moves to Chicago for two games but if Tampa Bay wins the next one they will advance. Think it's time for a new stadium yet?

Week 5 NFL Picks
WAS 26 PHL 31
Philly looks strong this year, and the Redskins are no slouch either. This should be a fun high scoring game. My Pick: Eagles

SEA 21 NYG 39
The Seahawks have lost their power in their division and have fallen just under mediocre. This week they meet the reigning World Champions, the New York Giants have will probably get creamed. Giants

MIN 17 NO 31
Minnesota isn't the team they were supposed to be this year, either is New Orleans. The Siants are stronger though, my pick : Saints

IND 44 HOU 14
This should be Peyton's coming out party since the Colts have had their struggles this year. The Colts will play a soft Texans team that they are very fond of. Colts

TB 34 DEN 28
Call me crazy, but I think the Bucs have a chance in this one. Tampa isn't favored to win this game, but Brian Greise knows this town very well. Broncos QB Jay Cutler is very dangerous but i think the Bucs D can hold him. Bucs

BUF 28 ARZ 20
Buffalo is hot and Arizona is not. My pick: Buffalo

CHI 30 DET 13
Chicago has put the peices back together, and Detroit has just fallen to pieces. Da Bears.

thanks for reading sports talk, check back next week for more!
