  1. QB Warren Moon: I’m going w Moon as not in as his first couple of season were w/ MRTECMOSUPERBOWL & Moon was back and b - he never did any damage in the playoffs & outside of his 1 dominant season he was behind Marino, Dave Krieg, & Harbaugh. He also came in the league at 75pc - the only QB ever to be 75pc- and retired at 69pc so he didn’t have longevity or a battle after aged. - as close as i could be to a yes vote but going w/ NO LB Andre Tipett - I had to play vs him & the Bengals every season 2x, from baxter then to Madtown it was a bitch knowing Tippett was going to be there w/ either pressure on the QB or able to intercept me w his elevated LB int rating. Total beast, vote yes DB Roland James - didn’t have the dominant season(s) that Hof player should have. Extremely valuable player & team mvp easily - can see his number retired by his team & a fan favorite for 30 years after retirement but missing that key 15+ int season as well as only had 2 seasons in a row w double digit ints. Missing that 6 straight 10 or more ints. Instead he had 6, 11, 11, 6, 12, 5 per season during the prime of his career. A great player & winner on the field - just not HOF. - NO RB Otis anderson- another player I had to face 2x a season for many seasons. I sat back and watched him first chase, the catch-up to, then annihilate Chuck Muncie’s RB short lived RB records. Easiest vote so far - yes RB Darin Nelson - tough to say no but he had only 2 All Pro seasons & even though he caught a shitload of balls out of the backfield he still comes in 8,000 yards rushing less than Otis A & even below Hershel Walker who never made it to 63ms where Nelson did most of his damage. Only 1 season above 2,000 yards rushing - which 2,000 yards needs to be either flirted w or gone over if you want to be HoF worthy (if 56-63ms for majority of career). - NO
  2. The actual name of the place is “Bar”
  3. If want good pizza good luck - there’s none in Boston. Gotta take a 2 hour ride to New Haven CT - where Can go on a pizza trip as Modern (I consider 1), Sally’s, Pepe’s (I don’t like Pepe but it always wins #1 pizza award for uSA), and Zuppardi’s are located. Bar Pizza is pretty good too & a LOT of ppl actually come to New Haven CT - some from VERY FAR away, just to try the pizza at ea of the 5 places mentioned.
  4. If want to do shopping go to Nashua NH- it’s the border town / City of NH to MA and Nh has no sales tax so pretty much everyone goes there from MA shopping at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua.
  5. If have a free night and they’re home go to the Nashua NH - Silver Knights minor league game - it’s a 30 min ride or even better is to hit Pawtucket Red Sox game. paw-Sox games are prob the most draws to than any other minor league team bc it’s located so close to Boston (45 min drive)
  6. Stay away from the tourist areas as traffic is insane. Don’t go to Salem or Plymouth Rock (unless it’s close to Halloween - Salem is cool month of Oct but nothing special rest of year - watch a YouTube video about the witch trials from 1700s get more out of than the Salem tourist traps billed as haunted witches of Salem etx.
  7. If they want great place to eat what’s considered a must is located in the “North End” - Dulce Vita. (Translates to- its a good life) but thats the place in Boston need to go if visiting. Sox game if they’re home - BUT make sure no matter what do not buy any seats lower level on 1st base side as there are obstructions “pillars holding up the tier above” that the seats are very cheap for bc you are literally sitting facing a pole the entire game. *a must is the sausage and peppers guy that’s outside of Fenway - directly across from the Ted Williams statue. Don’t waste time and of the other vendors - that is the best one hands down. The guy owns the sausage peppers cart put his 2 kids through college by selling sausage and peppers at 81 baseball games a year and no other job. Needless to say if had to choose going to Dolce Vita in north end or the sausage guy outside Fenway I woudl always choose sausage cart guy.

  15. The offensive MVP is still up for grabs w/ the tightest race we’ve ever had as multiple players are still in the race making all of the 5 votes remaining enormous in value to each candidate: In what ended up being Dan Marino's final season he went all out to win an unprecedented 5th straight MVP & 6 in 7 seasons! Will there be another WTF QB to put up numbers Marino has? It will take Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees or a surprise career from Phillip Rivers/Big Ben R./ Aaron Rodgers - matched w/ the right owner to entertain the thought- Marino is the WTF's leader in: attempts (2,575), completions (1,383), yards(32,144), & touchdown passes (425). This season DM followed up on his Pro Bowl, All Pro, MVP, & Super Bowl Championship season w/ personal best regular season ever: Attempts (242), completions (165), passing yards (3,205), rushing yards (152), NFL passer rating (138.5) & 2nd most TDS thrown in a season w/ 44 (he had 46 last season but w/ less yards, completions, yards rushing, & rating) Vinny T and his and his precise 78 % completions w/ 33 tds - 2 ints & 153.4 passer rating could get his first MVP - if his yards were closer to 3,000 than 2,500 & TDs closer to Marino’s 44 it would be a runaway for Vinny T ! Even with those factors his season is one of if not the best ever. Vinny's 700 yards & 11 TDs less will be weighed heavily vs Marino's 5 more ints thrown than Testeverde's 2- that's probably what voters will look at & weigh in comparison when choosing their MVP. Hard for Marino not to repeat in his final season w/ stats better than his previous 4 seasons that he won the MVP - and equally as hard not for Vinny T to be awarded his first MVP w/ a 78% completions & 153.4 passer rating. Bo Jackson also in search of his first MVP had only 2,100 yard rushing which there’s been many seasons of RBs w a lot more that has but his all around play & just his presence on the field demands Defenses to focus on him which opens up the air attack - making him valuable even when not touching the ball. Bo's 31 rushing TDS w/ 17 receptions for 274 yards a along w his team having best record in league fuel his MVP caliber season. WR Tim Brown of GB had a monster season leading his team to the playoffs & surprising the WR race that he beat out Flipper Andersen & Sam Graddy- the top 2 WRs past 8 seasons. Brown probably won’t win the MVP but getting votes have solidified his amazing success as going into the season knew Marino, Vinny T, and Bo Jackson would be on the ballot for MVP while Tim Brown would've been predicted to barely crack the top 5 for WRs & be somewhere around 3-5th place for yards, receptions, TDs (3rd for receptions 49, 1st for yards 2,500, &1st for TDs 29) When take into consideration that Brown was working w/ QB Doug Pederson & his below average 44PC it is evident that the veteran WR had not only the biggest surprise 16 games but also the most dominant season out of all of the candidates!
  16. With 7 votes not in yet Lonnie Young has locked up the D MVP, his first of illustrious career. currently Lonnie has 11 & Millard w/ 4 & 7 votes left but Young holds the tie break w/ his team better record & LY has more tackles (or 1 of 7 remaining vote as well as LB Darion C receiving a vote) Lonnie has been the interception leader 5x in his career but snubbed of the D MVP until this season. Young is now 4th in the all time Ints list after 10 seasons while Vann McElroy will Be entering his 14th next season. Albert Lewis played 11 & Eric Wright had 13 seasons. Top 10 all time INTs
