We are a month away from the Super Bowl, or where a football game will be played before and after a Katy Perry concert. The NFL playoffs kick off tomorrow with Wild Card Weekend.
We give you our predictions for the games this weekend:
Arizona Cardinals versus Carolina Panthers.
The Panthers have won 4 straight games even though their record is 7-8-1 and are hosting a teams that is 11-5 and is on it's 4th quarterback and might be doing American Idol quarterback auditions next season if Carson Palmer does not get healthy. The Cardinals have lost 4 straight. The Panthers last 4 wins though were against teams that my grandmother could have been playing and would have had better results. With that being said;
Cardinals over Panthers.
Baltimore Ravens versus Pittsburgh Steelers.
We really want to pick the Ravens especially with Steelers running back Bell being hurt. We just don't know if Joe Flacco or James Flacco or James Franco will show up as quarterback tomorrow.
Steelers over Ravens in a close game.
Cincinnati Bengals versus Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts are playing host to the Bengals on Sunday where they whooped Cinci 27-0 earlier in the season. Indy only shows up when it wants to, kind of like Andrew Luck shaving his hillbilly beard. The way the Cowboys smacked down the Colts a few weeks ago when they could have got the number 2 seed is quite pathetic.
Upset Of The Week: Cincinnati over Indianapolis.
Detroit Lions versus Dallas Cowboys.
Even Eminem could not save the Lions from the beat-down they are going to receive Sunday. With everything on the line last week for a division win against the Packers, Matthew Stafford played like Matthew Perry while he needed the confidence of Matthew McConaughey while reading Matthew 5:55.
Lock Of The Week: It would take Jessica Simpson showing up to the game for Dem Boys to lose this game. Dallas Over Detroit.
Diagnosis: Let's see how rusty I am at picking games.
"FUNKNROLL" the latest "club-banger" has been released from PRINCE. The song will be featured on "Art Official Age" and "PLECTREMELECTRUM" the debut album from 3RDEYEGIRL. Both albums will be released on 9/30.
The song has already been featured in NFL pre-game shows. Could that be where the video will world premiere? Hmm.
The Dallas Cowboys usually have the highest rated games on Sunday Night Football and will be playing the New Orleans Saints. Fact: Sunday Night Football is the most watched live event week after week with less DVR activity than any other TV show except for NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl. "New Girl" anyone?
When the song was being performed last year, we were sent the official lyrics from Paisley Park.
Bruno Mars is set to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show Feb. 2nd at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
The L.A. Times broke the news earlier today. The NFL will make the announcement tomorrow.
In recent years, the NFL chose safe acts as the halftime show, such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who, and Bruce Springsteen. The past 2? Not so safe with Madonna and Beyonce.
On Thursday's episode of "What's Up Doc" we were wondering who would be the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer and Bruno Mars did not even cross our minds. We thought with the Super Bowl being in Jersey that Bon Jovi might be high on the NFL's wish list.
We think it is a great choice. Mars has had a lot of ballads as hits. It will have to be heavy with more upbeat numbers like "Locked Out Of Heaven" for sure....-DocFB
Diagnosis: What do you think of Bruno Mars being chosen to perform at the Super Bowl?
Faith Hill will no longer be singing the "Sunday Night Football" song for the NFL or NBC, the singer has announced.
Faith Hill tweeted “Amazing 2 have been part of SNF – an honor. I’ve just let everyone there know it’s time 2 let someone else rock the open,"
“Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF – I’ll b watching!!!”
Faith Hill has sang the song for the past 6 years after NBC had P!nk do the exact same song for a year before giving it to Faith.
I'm sad to see Faith go because it was good way to get the game started. The question is now who will be the one singing the song?
Will they get Pink back or will it be someone else? I'm hoping a female to be honest. After 20+ years of Hank Williams Jr. doing the "Monday Night Football" song before he put his foot in his mouth and Faith's being a breath of fresh air, it would be smart to stick to a woman.
So who do U think should replace Faith?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Won't be the same...will it?
According to reports, Murdock was found in his car at 8:30 a.m. with a self-inflicted gun shot wound. He was transported to Tampa Hospital.
Murdock died around 2 hours later.
Murdock did not report to Titans training camp last week but was excused by head coach Mike Munchak for "personal reasons."
At this time, we do not know what his personal reasons were but we will update as soon as we know.
This follows after former NFL star Junior Seau committed suicide as well with a shot to his stomach, like Murdock, instead of his head.-DocFB
If you like hearing the "Monday Night Football" song before the game on Monday night, you might have to watch it on youtube from now on.
For the first time in 20 years, the "Monday Night Football" theme song will not air before the Monday Night game, ESPN announced.
Hank Williams appeared on "Fox & Friends" Monday (That was his first mistake) and he got political. Hank Williams backed McCain and Palin in 2008.
He commented on John Boehner playing golf with Obama is like Netanyahu (Israeli Prime Minister) and Hitler.
Fox surprisingly distanced themselves from his comment and said they did not understand the comment. Williams said "I'm glad you do not understand. They are the enemy." Fox then asked who is the enemy and without hesitation Williams stated "Obama and Biden. The 3 Stooges." Guess Williams can't count, can he?
After an outcry on social media sites, ESPN quickly responded with a statement;
"While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight's telecast."
This is not going to go away. I will be surprised if ESPN uses the song for the rest of the year or ever again. I'm all about freedom of speech but comparing someone to Hitler, is straight up lame.
We wonder who ESPN will turn to when it comes to recording a new song? Why do I have a feeling they are already calling Justin Timberlake?-DocFB
Diagnosis: I'm Still Ready For Some Football....Just Hold The Hank!
