Scott Van Pelt (1:03 PM)
Hi...what do you want?
Adam (Lima, OH)
Do you think the Braylon Edwards situation is gonna be like the Randy Moss Situation where he leaves a horrible team to a good team and turns into one of t he best receivers in the league?
Scott Van Pelt (1:04 PM)
No...I don't see that happening. Braylon had one great year in 2007. And that's been the extent of it. I hear a lot of our guys saying this makes the Jets offense a top offense in the league. I don't see that.
Hey Scott,Would you describe your speed as illusionary or ephemeral?
Scott Van Pelt (1:05 PM)
I'm fast as f........
"Take UNLV 5 against, I cant remember but dont take that other team" -SVPTurns out "that other team" (Nevada) won 63-28.Good advice, Jackass.
Scott Van Pelt (1:06 PM)
Nevada had over 700 yards of offense. That was a bad one. I gave Nevada twice as bonus picks and they failed me both times. Seeing that you're in Reno, I'm guessing they failed you as well.
SVP, is the NCAA getting a little too big and powerful? I'm talking about the Dez Bryant situation. I mean, he shouldn't have lied, but the fact that he did means he thought he might get in trouble with the NCAA for a freaking lunch! Who cares who you have lunch with and if Deion wants to pay, no big deal! Who out there hasn't taken a free meal at one time or another. The NCAA is out of control with all these so called violations! What they do would never stand in any other line of work. So annoying.
Scott Van Pelt (1:08 PM)
Preach Reverand preach. I have been singing this song for years.
is desean jackson the best wr in the nfc east
Scott Van Pelt (1:09 PM)
Numbers say Steve Smith of th Giants right now. I love Jackson's skill set, he's as fast in space as anyone in the league. Ask me again in November.
If you're Michael Jordan, and you want to smoke a cigar on the golf course, who's going to tell you to your face that you can't? If I'm him, I keep doing it.
Scott Van Pelt (1:11 PM)
The PGA has gone and done it now. They're going to end up in MJ's next speech...
Chad (Las Vegas)
You're into da golf. Rate Tigers year.
Scott Van Pelt (1:12 PM)
Won 6 times, won $10 mill. Won $10 million more in the FEd ex but would trade all of it for the one he let slip away in Minny vs. your boy Yang.One major means more to him than all the cash and the other evens all of which I think he has won multiple times
Do you think Brett Favre can play on such a high level all season at his age or do you think things will start to slip towards the end of the year like last year?
Scott Van Pelt (1:14 PM)
Nick, that's the million dollar question. Last year in week 4 he threw for 6 touchdowns - this year in week 4 everyone saw him light up GB.The past fe years suggest he CANNOT. You run out of gas as you reach Decemeber as an upper 30's/40 year old guy.
Cowherd versus Greenberg in a fight. Who ya got?
Scott Van Pelt (1:15 PM)
cowherd - by a lot.I think I would take most of the broads here over Greeny.no offense.For calling 'em broads.
SVP, the PGA didn't do it. Harding Park is a public course and it's against the law to smoke on city property in San Fran.
Scott Van Pelt (1:16 PM)
Well then THEY are on the list. I don't smoke buy it's crazy to me how people who do are lumped in with murderers on the social totem pole.
Bobby (massillon.OH) [via mobile]
do you think that percy harvin will start to get more and more touches as the year gose on.. i think he could be great if he gets the ball.. thanks
Scott Van Pelt (1:18 PM)
Given the team that picked him - Minnsota...and where he was taken - 21 ? or 22?He will be compared forever to Randy Moss if he continues to produce. A guy who was passed over due to concerns over his character that made people pay.He's not as skilled a wideout - but speed is the game changer and he has it an then some.
I have to ask some serious non-sports questions because I'm from Cleveland and talking about sports just hurts. What are your picks?Doritos vs. Fritos, Diet Coke vs. Coke Zero, and burger joint vs. steak house?
Scott Van Pelt (1:20 PM)
Nacho Cheese doritos in a rout.Diet Coke by 7 touchdowns....in the first half.How good is the burger? 5 guys with a bag of fries is nice....but a big*ss porterhouse is tough to top.
Scott, gottime for two? Do you think Fred Couples will pair Tiger and Phil this weekend at all? And second... do you see the Rams scoring at least a field goal this weekend? Thanks.
Scott Van Pelt (1:21 PM)
Fred knows what's up and you see it in the guy he is paired with - Steve Stricker. TW like Strick a lot...he's also a fan of Furyk's style.I would not expect to see him and Phil play together.The Rams....I don't know what to say there....
Chad (Las Vegas)
UF @ LSU, who you got and why?
Scott Van Pelt (1:23 PM)
The number is crazy. MORE than a td over LSU with Tebow a big ????Vegas seems to be begging you to take the home team.They (LSU) are pretty limited on offense and Florida's D is filthy.it goes against my DNA to like a favorite - but I like Florida and is has nothing to do with x's and o's.....strictly the line that makes mesay this.
What would SVP's handicap be (on the course, not off)?
Scott Van Pelt (1:24 PM)
It's double digits now , which is sad.My good is still really good...my bad is brutal.
Chris D. (LL, Michigan)
Scott, do you think the ND-USC game will be a close one?
Scott Van Pelt (1:26 PM)
The reason ND has struggled vs them of late is that they were limited offensively. This year they are not. JImmy C is ballin' out. That said...ND struggled with MSU, Purdue and Washington ( I KNOW they beat USC - but Corp was on the field for that one)I think the trojans are too much in that one.
Have you ever seen the Stephen A Smith Heckling society Cheese doodle things? It's ridiculously funny, HOWEVER I mis SAS
Scott Van Pelt (1:26 PM)
I am not one to toot my own horn...but my SAS is > then the SAS hecklers...by a lot.
Bernard (Princeton, NJ)
More fun to hang out with, Arod and Kate or Jeter and Minka?
Scott Van Pelt (1:28 PM)
I'm not going to act like I have rolled with Jeter...but I know him some and we have been in the same place at the same time - that dude is cooler than a polar bears toenail.
Chad (Las Vegas)
Dream 4some of golf?
Scott Van Pelt (1:30 PM)
I have said this before...not to end on a sappy note but it'd be my dad, grandfather and step father.They all passed away...none were good at golf so if we played...the golf would suck but we'd have a long time to catch up ...and there is a lot to catch up on.
Scott Van Pelt (1:31 PM)
Gotta go to work y'all.have a good day...JB...go outside and do something.See you next week.Take underdogs and tune in to espn 2 at 3 eastern to see Ryen fashioning his man purse.Clown.
