. A look inside the AFC North

 

Baltimore 2004 Regular season record 9-7

 

IN: WR Derrick Mason (TEN), G Keydrick Vincent (PIT), CB Samarri Rolle (TEN), OC Jim Fassel (AHC)

OUT: WR Travis Taylor (MIN), C Casey Rabach (WAS), OLB Josh Buhl (TB), MLB Edgerton Hartwell (ATL), CB Gary Baxter (CLE), DC Mike Nolan (HC SF), OC Matt Cavanaugh, LBC Mike Singletary (AHC SF)

 

 

Staying put: C Joe Mease, RB Chester Taylor

 

Biggest need: With Edgerton Hartwell departing for Atlanta the second ILB in the Ravens 3-4 defense now becomes a competition for a roster spot

 

Analysis: Exit Travis Taylor Enter Derrick Mason. Exit Gary Baxter Enter Samari rolle. All in All a pretty good offseason for the Baltimore ravens but once again the questions rises is their offense good enough? Well they have one of the best o-lines one of the best RB’s one of the best TE’s and a pretty good WR in derrick mason. So it all lies on Kyle Bollers Shoulders

 

2005 projected record:10-6

 

Cincinnati Reagular Season Record 8-8

 

IN: DT Bryan Robinson (MIA), DC Chuck Bresnahan (AHC)

 

OUT: MLB Frank Chamberlain (HOU), P Kyle Richardson (CLE), DC Leslie Frazier

 

Staying put: WR T.J Houshmandzedah

 

Biggest need: This team needs some help on defense a SS wouldn’t hurt

 

Analysis: two straight 8-8 seasons under Marvin Lewis not bad, but the third year people are going to want to see some results if they don’t get to the playoffs or even a winning record it cant be anything but bad

 

2005 projected record:8-8

 

 

Cleveland Regular Season Record 2-14

 

IN: QB Trent Dilfer (SEA) (Trade), RB Reuben Droughens (DEN), G Joe Andruzzi (NE), G Cosey Coleman (TB), DT Jason Fisk (SD), OLB Matt Stewart (ATL), CB Gary Baxter (BAL), P Kyle Richardson (CIN), HC Romeo Crennel (DC NE), OC Maurice Carthon (DAL), DC Todd Grantham (DLC HOU)

OUT: QB Jeff Garcia (DET), QB Kelly Holcomb (BUF), G Joaquin Gonzalez (IND), C Damion Cook (MIA), DE Courtney Brown (DEN), DE Ebenezer Ekuban (DEN), DT Gerard Warren (DEN), Mike Myers (DEN), OLB Kevin Bentley (SEA), MLB Barry Gardner (NYJ), CB Anthony Henry, CB Lewis Sanders (HOU), SS Robert Griffith (ARI), DC Dave Campo (DBC JAX)

 

Staying put:

 

Biggest need:lost to many DL they need to get someone back to fill that hole

 

Analysis: This team was involved in a scoring show against the Bengal’s it was also involved in being shutout they lose Jeff Garcia and bring in Trent Dilfer who led the 2000 ravens to a super bowl victory. Also they just recently acquired Rueben Droughns from the broncos but this year they lost a lot of defense. Courtney Brown Ebenezer Ekuban, Gerrard Warren, Anthony Henry, Barry Gardner, Earl Little. and Robert Griffith will al be wearing different uniforms next season but as Romeo crenel taught us its not who you have its what you do with them so I guess we will see if Romeo crenel can bring a little of that patriot magic to the browns

 

2005 projected record:7-9

 

 

Pittsburgh Regular Season 15-1

 

IN: WR Cedric Wilson (SF)

 

OUT: WR Plaxico Burress (NYG), T Oliver Ross (ARI), G Keydrick Vincnet (BAL), DT Kendrick Clancy (NYG), MLB Kendrell Bell (KC)

Staying put:

 

Biggest need:The Cb position is a little iffy

 

Analysis: I Personally hate the Steelers simply because I cant stand their fans or at least a majority of them are dickheads who always think their QB soooo great whether it be Maddox or Big Ben. Anyways this team had the Leagues best record last year dropping just one game to the ravens. Cowher is a Hell of a coach Hines Ward is a Hell of a WR they have a Hell of a Defense and Bettis is just straight up unstoppable sometimes. This team is good enough to win 15 games again, but they did loose Ben Roethlisbergers favorite target in Plaxico Bureess who will be catching balls from Eli Manning in New York. Another Question some critics may ask was in those last two playoff games ddi we see the real Ben Roethlisberger or just a rookie who was struggling in the spot light. There is no doubt we will see this team in the playoffs next year so how Ben does is a Question only he can answer

 

2005 projected record:13-3

Article: Soccer News

. It is incredibly close at the top of Serie A, with reigning champions Milan occupying top spot by a single goal. They have won 20, drawn 6 and lost 3, as have Juventus who have scored only 2 less than Milan but conceded 1 less. Both teams are almost guaranteed a top 2 finish with the team in 3rd, Inter a good 16 points behind. Inter lost their long unbeaten run earlier in the season cruelly to their city rivals Milan 1-0. They have drawn a staggering 17 games, but won 11 compared to Milan and Juve’s 20.

 

The top 5 in Serie A are as follows:

 

1. Milan…………..66pts

2. Juventus………66pts

3. Inter……………50pts

4. Udinese……….48pts

5. Sampdoria……47pts

 

In La Liga, the case is similar to the Premiership, Barcelona are the Chelsea and Real Madrid are the Arsenal. Barca lead Madrid by 9 points at the top, however Madrid can cut that gap to 6 if they defeat their fierce rivals on the weekend. The race is on for 3rd, with Villarreal in 3rd on 50 points, just 1 ahead of Real Betis, Espanyol and Sevilla though have a game in hand on their chasers.

 

The top 5 in La Liga are as follows:

 

1. Barcelona…………..69pts

2. Real Madrid………..60pts

3. Villarreal……………50pts

4. Real Betis………….49pts

5. Espanyol…………...49pts

. Schumacher fails again. What is wrong ?

 

Everyone watched the Grand Prix of Bahrain; not only to get the result but also to see whether the new Ferrari is strong enough to compete with Renault, McLaren and Toyota, the top teams in the Formula One at the moment. The Ferrari performed strong in the qualifying but again, they weren't able to get Pole Position. Not to mention the gearbox of Barrichello failing over and over.

 

The race started well for the Ferrari's. Both were able to keep up with the others but as soon as Schumacher lost the braking point in the hairpin. He lost speed and eventually had to park his car in the pitbox. Barrichello wasn't sucessfully either. He was slowing down every lap and eventually had to be satisfied with 9th place. Ferrari, who won the last 5 championships, has changed completly. They just aren't better than the other teams, on the contrary to the past years. Schumacher thinks it is going to be better, but he, and others say that since Melbourne. So, while Renault is better than ever and McLaren and Toyota get faster and faster, Ferrari fans have to hope it's going to change. Soon, or else it's too late.

This is definitely a drop from the first Sports Weekly. When it comes to the sports movies; Raging Bull and Field of Dreams have to be there.

 

There should have been a baseball story with the season starting last weekend.

 

On the football tip; I'm not fond of the Steelers either but you can't state that in an article whose purpose is to detail a teams moves in the offseason. Plus there were alot of grammar and spelling mistakes in your column (alot of words capitalized when they shouldn't be). When you're talking about the Ravens, you have to bring up the fact Jamaal Lewis is going to jail (this summer I think) and how you think that could effect him. On the Steelers, you have to mention that it's not clear whether Bettis will come back or retire. I know it sounds like I'm attacking you, but I'm not.

You can point all fingers of blame at me for the lack on an MLB article. A little busy, that's all. I'll have some good stuff for issue 3 though. Sorry to those expecting something.

Hey, if you need another writer, I'll be glad to help. I just need to know what the deadlines are and who I should send the articles to. I could write about pretty much any sport, but I probably know most about NCAA basketball (even though it's out of season now.) Please post back here if you would like me to write something.

Never seen it. Terrible, I know.

 

I forgot about Brian's Song, the remake not the original. The original is so boring.

With the right staff and right writers, this could become really popular. I'd myself like to get it off the ground and going again but I'm a busy man. I would not be able to manage it week-in-week-out, but I'm willing to produce fine articles on European football. Come on people!
