It’s All Opinions Day

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:

Andrew Luck is taking a big gamble by staying in school, unless — and it is a distinct possibility — labor problems shut down some or all of the 2011 NFL season . . .

By the way, Cam Newton might be the best college football player in America. But Stanford’s Luck is the best quarterback . . .

Headline: Jim Harbaugh breaks off talks with the Dolphins. Reaction: Maybe he figured out it would make no sense to go to the same division as the Patriots and Jets . . .

I still think Harbaugh will end up with the 49ers, where the division competition is as soft as a warm slice of San Francisco sourdough . . .

Al Davis gets more strange by the day. He finally has a coach in Tom Cable who seems on the verge of turning the Raiders around, so naturally, he fires him . . .

Davis’ real problem is HE still wants to be the head coach . . .

Some of my fellow Baseball Hall of Fame voters refuse to put Edgar Martinez, among the finest righthanded hitters of the past few decades, on their ballot because they claim DH is not a real position. But if that’s the case, how come you see it every day in the American League box scores? . . .

The best NFL playoff game of the first weekend is Packers vs. Eagles. But the best game of the whole playoffs figures to be Steelers at Patriots for the AFC title . . .

New Monsters on the Block Blake Griffin and Kevin Love both have to make the NBA All-Star Game, don’t they? . . .

The Dodgers are going to have their own Snuggie Night in April. I feel a lot better about the upcoming baseball season now . . .

UCLA fans had to be salivating watching quarterback commit Brett Hundley in the Under Armour high school all-star game the other night. The kid has a big arm . . .

Of course, USC quarterback commit Max Wittek was the MVP of the same game . . .

When it comes to Ron Artest, I go back to one of my favorite sports theories: People don’t change . . .

Peyton Manning and Mark Sanchez are the glamor names, but Jets-Colts will be decided by whichever team runs the ball more effectively . . .

I hate to break this to Pete Carroll, but I don’t think it matters which quarterback he starts against the more talented Saints . . .

Now that fellow Stanford man John Elway has taken over as the Broncos’ top exec, doesn’t the much sought-after Mr. Harbaugh have to at least listen to what Denver has to offer? . . .

You don’t think Arte Moreno will be outbid for Scott Posednik, too, do you? . . .

  1. Steve, it’s nice to have you back. I’ve missed your blog. And my prayers have been answered = Burt Blyleven is finally in the Hall of Fame where he should have been years ago. As usual, I agree with your opinions. Happy New Year my friend.

  2. Cable should have been fired years ago when he punched one of his assistants. I am sure that Davis did not want this guy around and under contract to the extent that it would cost him money to discharge him. Just because he is Al Davis does not mean that he is always wrong. Agree with him about the last two coaches he fired, Cable and Kiffin. Steve–if your fellow Hall of Fame voters have not voted Steve Garvey in, why should Martinez be voted in?

  3. yEAH. iT’S VERY POSSIBLE THAT THE aNGELS will be outbid for Posednik. They have become that ridgid and inflexable (incompetent.). I don’t care what Plunkett has in his column=-Regins must go. No star power, no power at all, no leftfielder and no third baseman.
    Pathetic and it begs the question why free agents do not want to play here. Either we have a management problem or an ownership problem or both. And who handles the Angels PR–Ron Artest?
