A highlight from 443: Reviewing Sens Opening Weekend; Tim Sttzle's Incredible First Goal; NFL Playoffs and more
Jim drum ottawa. Jimmy's in edmonton. It's busy weekend. We just had filled with nfl. Layoffs and the first ottawa senators games in what ten months. Wow great time for sports fans james. How're things Things are stevie. Yeah things are okay you know. I started with a tried to watch some hockey which i did started. I guess it started last wednesday the hockey and there's so many freaking game on raw love it but i kind of like i use the flip on the score up. That's the one. I used to check out what games are coming up right and and i'm just getting my head around because here's here's what i've done go. Oh yeah so. Evans playing vancouver. This must be. This must be yesterday's because they played already. So may i'm just getting used to all these teams playing back to back games. You know with the obviously the same teams so happen here as well. Ottawa taking on toronto for two games. And i was thinking about. That's again at it. Further galvanized my feel of yes. More divisional play you know. They've expanded this year. Normally they play divisional teams four times. Maybe five this year. It's nine in ten games. You play divisional. And that's your season. That's gonna be it but moving forward as i was sort of between games yesterday between Sends lease games as thinking to myself normally after a very good game friday night we'd be getting ready for a visit by t max and all the all the momentum would be lost and the rivalry between toronto and ottawa into hibernation for weeks if not months so i'm pretty jacked about the way it lays out. Yeah absolutely. I think. I think i'm gonna like it anyway so i'm well entrenched good well entrenched in the In the nhl and then of course the nfl watch. I watch both those games yesterday buses. That's my that's my sentimental favorite. And i pick them in our betting. I think you you had the rams in the first game you in that. And i think i win the buffalo game. I can't remember the second game to be honest. yeah. I had buffalo their mind street. So whenever i picked the sentimental thing that means. You're picking an underdog sentimental is just another way of saying they're going to lose. Okay that's that's half. i never get it right when i picked the old sentimental thing until i got the i got the bills while it was an interesting game. I mean the ravens. Were still in it. I've never seen the sky fall in on a guy and a team so quickly lamar jackson. Mvp of the league potentially all of a sudden they're down by seven and jackson throws a pick six the other way like it was into the end zone and the steady you know getting back in the game. It's pick six the other direction. Next time he gets the ball in the very next play suffers a concussion because the snapper he's in the shotgun snap or puts it over his head runs back toward the end zone throws the ball away but just gets hammered as he does so and slams his head on the ground for the rest of the game with a concussion. I've never seen a teams fayed in players. Fate go sideways so quickly and the bills at an easy time of it for the most part after that even though the backup was pretty decent right anyway you know what stevie i saw that hit you know. He got flattened completely straight back hit in the chest downey goals and the head snaps onto onto the surface. And you're going for sure. That's a concussion. I'm i'm surprised tv. They don't have the helmets that they're trying all sorts of different things right these helmets. I'm surprised that you don't have this sort of you know a bigger bulky padding in the back of the helmet you know what i mean. It's like the you know you got this uniform helmet right. That sort of fits around your skull rain i get. I know what a helmet is but but maybe they should have the thing that like like out another four or five inches of padding in the back. Yeah yeah that sounds. That sounds good by the. We're going to talk ottawa. Senators and hockey here in just a second year. But since the nfl jag On the helmet thing. I really don't think there's a helmet that will prevent concussions certainly can mitigate them but the way that lamar jackson hit his head on the turf out of the any helmet is preventing concussion. There your brain floats in the cerebral fluid in your head and basically when it's When it's hitting the ground like that is just crashing against the inside of your skull not much that a helmet would do helping that And you think about. Patrick mahomes as well. I mean he looked really glassy. Eyed and kansas city's whenever cleveland.
