Dr. Pat's Unofficial Assessments of Super Bowl XLVII Commercials
BEST COMMERCIALMercedes Benz "Soul", featuring Willem Dafoe, Kate Upton, Usher, and a man tempted by the dark side but who ultimately feels confident than he can comfortably afford his new Mercedes without signing his soul away to Devil Dafoe.
MOST LIKELY TO EVOKE A TEARBudweiser's "Brotherhood", about a man who raised a Clydesdale, saw him leave the farm, watched him trot during a parade in Chicago thinking that his 4 legged friend hadn't seen him, only for the horse to dramatically track the man down before he drove back to his farm. If you weren't welling up just a bit when the man and horse unite in the street, you have problems.
4 FUNNY COMMERCIALS (in no particular order):
(1) Audi's "Prom", where a dateless young man shows that getting to drive his dad's Audi to the prom is worth getting a black eye administered by the prom king after stealing a kiss from the prom queen.
(2) Best Buy's "Asking Amy", where comedian Amy Poehler plays part goofy, part cougar while being escorted about a Best Buy by a helpful young man.
(3) Tide's "Miracle Stain", as a fan discovers a stain of Joe Montana's face on his shirt, framed the shirt, gains tremendous notoriety, only to have his Ravens loving Wholesale Jerseys wife has washed the stain out of the shirt.
(4) Kia's "Space Babies", as a man's elaborate explanation to his inquisitive son that babies come from outer space is not readily received by the young boy.
Honorable mentions include Toyota's spot with Kaley Cuoco, the promotion of Milk by The Rock, the Volkswagen ad with unsuspecting accents and attitudes, Taco Bell's spot with members of a retirement community partying across town and ending up making a late night run for the border, Speed Stick's spot where the guy caught with a girl's panties at the laundromat talks himself out of but then back into trouble, and Samsung's spot with Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen.
LEAST IMPRESSIVE COMMERCIAL RELEASE
Budweiser's Black Crown. There was no flash, but no play on emotion either. Just a routine pitch to what appears to be an upscale market. Very basic and unimaginative.
Bar Refaeli kissing a nerd for Go Daddy. The lip smacking from their smooching sounded like an elderly man with dry mouth syndrome while walking vigorously through the desert.
Oreo. Regarding their theme of a library fight in which everyone must keep it down amidst all the violence, this is akin to the scene in The Other Guys where a similar fight breaks out at the wake of 2 recently departed cops.
Nationals and Washington sports
Every team gets excited and emotional when it's winning and the Skins were that way late last year. But how are you when you are losing? They are not a "lose hard locker room" like many I have seen in many sports. The idea that they have high football character probably isn't right. They aren't low either. Just a normal bunch. But Shanahan said he was looking for tough minded players. We'll see how many they have the last five games. They are STILL a healthy team by the standards of Week 12 in the NFL. Jordan Reed should be back at TE next week.
Has this version of the Piston really been "figured out" or are the Niners just especially well suited to stop it because they use read option with Kaepernick and are student of that system? Of course, the Eagles crushed it the week before.
Going directly to your point, the Skins have long "blah" periods in games when they don't pick each other up one unit to the next and the result is long runs of points by their foes. Special teams usually inject energy into a good team. The Skins special teams may be the worst I've ever seen. They deflate the team as soon as they step on the field. On uggs clearance one punt return last night, the punt returner wasn't touched for the first 18 yards of the return and he did nothing except run up field and when he was was touched it was a slap on the hip as he ran past.
They RESPECT each other. They see "fits" deal that help themselves and the other team. They both trade from surplus to fill needs. The Nats will strengthen their LH side of the pen this winter, you assume. So they don't need Abad and didn't protect him on the 40 man. But he has a good arm, Billy knows it, so the Nats got back a little "long shot" piece for a pitcher they didn't need.
These are the best kind of trading partners both smart, but in different leagues so they can sync up as often as they want.
Yes. Mike said something about being "a bit of a gambler" as a play caller as if it was HIS call. Come on, it almost certainly wasn't. The OC calls that. Or certainly should. Maybe Mike was part of the conversation.
Terrible call. Morris should be on the field in that situation whether he fake oakley sunglasses gets the ball or not. 49ers also stopped Helu on at least one 3rd and short.
Skins don't seem to trust Morris' hands as a receiver out of the backfield. But you need to improve him to the point where he can play in a big spot like that and be seen as a plausible receiver for a short pass, too.
Can you tell me why fans tolerate the endless commercial interruptions during college and pro football games? Why do 60 minute football games take over 3.5 hours to play? It amazes me that the leagues can get away with this. Contrast this with English Premier League soccer. The 90 minute games always finish in less than two hours, the games interesting and exciting, and there are no commercial interruptions. I don't see how American football could ever become popular in countries where people grew up watching soccer.
In England I've heard that the NFL didn't "take" quickly because it was considered an incredibly slow sport. Partly that's the contrast with soccer. Partly it's the extra 30 minutes of commercials, replays and general crud that have seeped into the game.
The NFL is meant for taping and watching in 60 to 70 minutes, not 3 1/2 hours. Then it has enough action. At it's current pace I think it has at least as much of a "slow pace" problem as baseball. But the NFL problem is interruptions. There's only 15 to 18 minutes of action in an NFL game. That's enough. IF the game takes 2:50 from 1:05 kickoff to 3:55 finish.
Good question. Only played eight years, had five excellent ones. Listed as 66 now. Hope he's doing fine. Sorry I don't know more. May try to find out. Ken Denlinger, who did write about those Allen/Brown teams for the Post, mentioned to me recently that Morris reminded him of Brown. That's a high compliment.
Reading about the head injury problems and challenges of Tony Dorsett and Leonard Marshal was heartbreaking. I look forward to the day when the NFL is replaced by world class soccer competition. But I love hockey; learning the game from watching Gordie Howe as a little kid and there's no substitute (shinty?). But I don't look forward to hearing about the problems Sidney Crosby, Rick Nash and others will likely have in 10 20 years. My question is, in the world we live in today, is it possible that the NFL could fail to solve it's problems and disappear while the NHL is solves its head injury problem and survives?
I'm surprised hockey isn't a bigger sport. Not a LOT bigger. It's a tough sport to get a true "feel" for unless you played it, imo. But you pick it up with time. If hockey gets a better commissioner and gets over its labor and head injury problems big "ifs" it can grow.
This is the peak of the NFL. Or maybe just past it. It's not going to disappear not in 10, 20 or 30 years. But I think it's position will gradually come down a few clicks over the next 10 years. And more than that in 20. It has inherent injury (head) problems which I suspect are ineradicable.
Bryce Harper and Matt Williams: have they talked?
Appreciated your piece the other day on Ovechkin and Oates, and in that vein, I'm wondering if you know whether Bryce Harper and Matt Williams have met since he was hired as Nationals manager. Las Vegas and Phoenix aren't that distant, and Matt starred at UNLV (albeit some years before Bryce was born, which really makes me feel old). On the surface, they would seem to be a good blend of personalities, and I'm hoping Williams can help with the holes in Harper's game (specifically hitting lefties).
Four years in, and this is the chi hair straightener on field product?
I understand that making a change causes roster upheaval, but how on earth can Mike Shanahan keep his job? As you pointed out this morning, the defense has been a disaster. The offensive line can't pass protect. The "scheme" involves letting Aldon Smith a clean rush at the franchise QB. If the players aren't any good, that's on the guy who picks the players. If the scheme isn't any good, that's on the guy who picks the coaches and develops the scheme. If the players aren't well coached, that's on the head coach who picks the position coaches. In all those cases, that's Mike Shanahan.
You HAVE to keep Shanahan for the rest of this year. There's nobody else on the property who can do the job. It would be insanity. And see what the last five games brings. The Skins are at a VERY low point after these last three games.
I'm not a fan of Shanahan as a coach, but I'm not a knocker. I think, at this point, he's a pretty good NFL coach great on offensive Xs and Os who hasn't got a clue whom to hire as defensive coordinator and, except for a few important offensive positions (QB, RB, you know, those LITTLE positions) doesn't have any special gifts for picking players in the draft. IOW, he's a below average GM. It's a tough spot. If you fire him, you're going to discover that 10 players you thought were pretty good were just Shanny Players and their value will plummet. Also, who's better and available? Gruden is a wonderfully fun TV guy but I can't imagine he's crazy enough to jump into Skinsmania. He looks crazy but I don't think he's actually nuts.
Also, Snyder/Allen wouldn't be my choices to pick "the next great coach" who is under 45 (or under 40).
Who wants to jump into a team that has given up three No. 1 and a No. 2 AND has lost roster quality due to the salary cap hit. Remember, that cap hit didn't just damage those two years. The Skins would have used that money (presumably) for roster upgrades for players who, once you had them, would STAY here for years, perhaps many years not just these last two seasons. You can never get back those Players Who Never Arrived.
Does an establish star coach want the job? Remember, nobody wanted the gig when the Skins ended up with Zorn. How many would think it wonderful to work with RGIII vs. how many would wonder about working for a franchise where RGII shows up at press conferences and, last night, was apparently IN the lcoker room after a defeat. (I didn't see RGIII's dad when I was in there. But I wasn't looking for him!) What is THAT about. He gets in my room the one I'll never have for ONE SECOND. I don't care if he's the QB's father, grandfather, aunt and uncle all rolled into one. (How does RGIII, who is only 23, really feel about that? What's he going to say to the father he adores? Tough spot.)
In such an awkward situation, the coach has to step up and be the bad guy, the adult, make the decision. You know, the tough decision like taking RGIII out against Seattle even though you might lose and end your season. (Guess he didn't make that one either.)
The Nats (and O's) are letting us down. Come on, somebody start some rumors.
When Rizzo has a Major Need, he usually fills it very quickly he lknows what he wants and strikes first.
Otherwise, he tends to wait, let everything shake out and make deals or signings at the tail end of the off season. So, we'll find out pretty soon whether there will be any pre Xmas surprises. He said there were no huge needs. But LHer in pen and another SP though probably not a $12 to $15M one certainly seem like needs.
goal show for Liverpool falconsauthenticofficial.com/Prince_Shembo_Jersey_Falcons tops night in Premier League
MANCHESTER, England Luis Suarez's stunning quadruple for Liverpool capped a goal laden night in the Premier League that saw the top four all win, but Manchester United lose 1 0 to Everton to be cut adrift in the title race.
Arsenal preserved its four point lead as Nicklas Bendtner capitalized on a rare start to score in a 2 0 win over Hull, while Eden Hazard capped a brilliant performance with two goals in Chelsea's wild 4 3 victory at Sunderland.
Manchester City stayed third by beating West Bromwich Albion 3 2, mainly thanks to Yaya Toure's brace, but the star of the night was Suarez, whose four goals in a 5 1 thrashing of Norwich included a 45 yard looping volley as part of a first half hat trick.
"Just the fear he puts in defenders the quality of his finishing is phenomenal," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said of the Uruguay striker, who has now scored 11 goals in his last four games against Norwich.
While the front runners were all winning, United slumped to a fourth defeat of a turbulent first season in charge for David Moyes, whose old club of 11 years claimed a first win at Old Trafford since 1992 thanks to Bryan Oviedo's 86th minute goal.
"It's a big catch up for us now," said Moyes, whose team dropped to ninth place in the stuttering defence of its title 12 points behind Arsenal after 14 games.
Tottenham ruined Rene Meulensteen's first match in charge of Fulham by winning 2 1 at Craven Cottage, giving Spurs manager Andre Villas Boas a first win in five games and some much needed breathing space.
Swansea ended Newcastle's four match winning run with a 3 0 victory and Aston Villa upset Southampton 3 2 to take the number of goals in the night's nine matches to 32. Stoke was held 0 0 by Cardiff.
Suarez became the first player to score three hat tricks against the same team in the Premier League, beginning his virtuoso performance in the 15th minute with a dipping volley from long range.
An instinctive second was followed by a classy third, when he turned this way and that before smashing a rising shot into the corner from the edge of the area. He finished off his one man show with a curling free kick and added an assist for good measure, setting up Raheem Sterling for Liverpool's fifth.
Despite missing Liverpool's first five games of the campaign to complete a ban for biting carried over from last season, Suarez is now the Premier League's top scorer with 13 goals in nine matches.
"I wish Suarez would just leave us alone!! Big bully!" Norwich midfielder Anthony Pilkington tweeted.
Arsenal may not have racked up the goals but the win was just as routine against a team that shocked Liverpool three days earlier, keeping Arsene Wenger's side out in front.
Bendtner was handed his first Premier League start since March 2011, with Olivier Giroud given a rest, and the forgotten man responded by heading home the opener after just 90 seconds.
"When he is physically sharp, he can compete with Devonta Freeman Authentic Jersey anybody," Wenger said of the Denmark striker, who has been loaned out to Sunderland and Juventus in recent seasons. "When he has that commitment and attitude, his quality shows."
Mesut Ozil stroked home a pass from Aaron Ramsey to make it 2 0 in the 47th and secure Arsenal's 11th win of the campaign.
Chelsea and Man City kept the pressure on Arsenal with entertaining away wins, with that trio falconsauthenticofficial.com/Devonta_Freeman_Jersey_Falcons looking increasingly likely to be battling for the title come May.
Hazard set up Lampard for Chelsea's equalizer, after Jozy Altidore put Sunderland ahead early, and then scored twice himself to earn plaudits from his manager, Jose Mourinho.
"Eden Hazard was excellent," Mourinho said. "He told me at dinner last night, 'Boss, for a long time I haven't scored.' He decided he would score tonight."
Sunderland defender Phil Bardsley scored at both ends in the final 10 minutes, with his team staying rooted to the bottom two points behind Crystal Palace.
City finally found a cure to its away problems, grabbing just its second victory in seven matches on its travels thanks to Sergio Aguero's ninth minute opener and goals by Yaya Toure either side of the break. West Brom scored twice in the dying stages via Costel Pantilimon's own goal and Victor Anichebe's injury time strike.
With the top four all picking up three points, United chose the worst time to expose its vulnerabilities as Everton achieved under Roberto Martinez what Moyes failed to do in 11 years at Goodison Park a win at Old Trafford.
United struck the goal frame twice, through Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, but Everton overran the hosts in midfield and deservedly prevailed Prince Shembo Authentic Jersey thanks to Oviedo's close range finish.
"We will need to play some great football and win an awful lot of games in the run in if we going to be in there and around it come the end of the season," said Moyes, who was jeered by Everton's travelling support throughout.

Not quite enough info for clear Falcons Ra'Shede Hageman Jersey understanding, but I am in Augusta and I will provide a telephone conference should you.
Will getting caught driving with a suspended license affect my pending DUI case?
At the beginning of this year I got arrested for a DUI and speeding, I blew a .083. Just the other day I got caught at a traffic stop and they gave me a ticket for driving with a suspended license (I was not arrested). First question, is there any way I can pay this ticket before the court date and be done with it? Also, I've been to my DUI arraignment and plead not guilty. We are working on getting it dropped to reckless. Since my sentencing is still pending, will this ticket directly affect that case or the courts decision in that case? I'm not sure what's going to happen, but I really don't want to go to jail because I'm a full time student.
Do not plead guilty. If you do, you will face further license suspension. This may have an adverse affect on your DUI.

Friend was arrested for a DUI 5 years ago in Georgia and was discharged from the army for the offense. He was sentenced to 15 days jail, released in 6 days, and given 2 years probation. After completing a year of probation he paid off the remainder of his probation and moved to FL without informing his PO. For some reason he thought by paying off his probation they would eventually forget about him and drop the case. He was arrested on another VOP for another crime in GA and after serving the time for that VOP he will be transferred to the other GA jail for the VOP on the DUI. What is he facing for the VOP on the DUI? Also, I am not sure if it is important to note, the jail he will be transferred to for the VOP on the DUI is currently being sued for overcharging people for probation fees.
He is potentially facing a revocation of his probation for the remainder of the probation left from when he absconded to FL.

Lambeau Field expansion puts Packers up with NFL's big boys www.officialraidersnflauthentic.com/Derek_Carr_Jersey_Raiders
Green Bay Lambeau Field can now seat more than 80,000 fans.(Photo: H. Marc Larson, Green Bay Press Gazette)
Story HighlightsGreen Bay now boasts third highest seating capacity in NFLAddition of 7,000 seats gives Pack a virtual extra home game at gate over course of seasonThey've proven that on the field by winning more NFL championships than any other team. And they've done themselves proud off the field with the development of the money making machine known as Lambeau Field.
Although Green Bay is the smallest city in professional sports by far, its stadium now has the third largest www.nfljaguarsofficialshop.com/Marqise_Lee_Jersey_Jaguars seating capacity in the NFL.
With the completion of yet another Lambeau expansion, the Packers will play home games in front of capacity crowds of 80,750. That's a staggering number for a city with a population of just more than 104,000, and a far cry from the 32,500 capacity when Lambeau opened in 1957.
FedEx Field in Landover, Md. (85,000), home of the Washington Redskins, has the largest seating capacity in the NFL. 2.
RODGERS' NEW NEIGHBORHOOD: Packers QB talks about loss of vet WRs
The Packers reported record Marqise Lee Authentic Jersey revenue and profits this week, and their decision to add 7,000 seats to Lambeau beginning this season was shrewd and economically sound.
The team is coming off a remarkable two decade run of success, and the Packers' season ticket waiting list hovers just above 100,000. So why not maximize revenue streams while inviting several thousand additional ticket buyers to share in the fun at Lambeau? Everybody comes up a winner.
PHOTOS: 32 rookies to watch in 201332 NFL rookies to watch in 2013The extra cash the Packers will rake in is the equivalent of adding another Derek Carr Authentic Jersey home game to the schedule. The stadium should be louder with the additional fans and the reconfiguration of the south end zone, which will make life more difficult for visiting teams. And the new seats, with amenities like chair backs and a separate stadium entrance, will add value to the game day experience.
Lambeau Field holds the distinction of being the longest active homefield site of any NFL team. In pro sports, only Fenway Park (1912) and Wrigley Field (1914) have longer tenures.
Lambeau's seating capacity is 2 greater than when it opened 56 years ago. Rather than build a new stadium, as most teams do, the Packers wisely chose to upgrade and modernize Lambeau while maintaining some of the original charm.
Nothing is perfect, and Lambeau is no exception. The aluminum bench seats in the bowl are a literal pain in the back side to many patrons. But the new end zone section, club seats and suites provide other options, if fans are willing to shell out more money in the secondary market.
There have been whispers that the new seats are too high and don't possess the intimacy associated with the stadium bowl. When the winter winds start whipping around, things could get pretty frosty in those sections.
But those are relatively minor complaints.
The downside to increasing the stadium capacity might not be evident until the Packers endure hard times on the field.
It's easy to attract 80,000 fans when times are good. But if an extended stretch of bad football hits town, as it did in the 1970s and 1980s, packing a stadium that large might prove challenging.
