Will the Andy Reid led Chiefs capitalize on a 2013 season of resurgence? Will the upstart San Diego Chargers, with a reborn Philip Rivers take control of the division? Could the veteran ladened Raiders make an impact on the AFC West?
All of these questions and more will be addressed on this week's edition of 'The Rant' on Sports Rant Radio.
On Thursday's program, we start with Mr. John Woods, founder of New Perspectives starts us off on how Hennepin County has an unfair process.
Here's the history: In 2012, 4,161 individuals were approved for chemical dependency treatment in Hennepin County. The Hennepin County review team (based out of the 1800 Chicago Hennepin County Community Services Agency) reviewed these individuals in 2012. Of those, 1,361 (32.7 percent) were classified as African American and approved for chemical dependency treatment. Of those 1,361 African American individuals seeking CD services, New Perspectives received only 48 approvals (6.5 percent).
Woods claims this is not something that only his organization is facing; he says African American Family Services and Turning Point, Inc. have also been victims of this referral process. Woods believes that this flawed referral process, which he identifies as a form of “systematic racism,” was an essential factor in the recent merger of African American Family Services with another agency.
African American Family Services received 42 approvals (5.7 percent). Turning Point Inc. was the only culturally specific program that received numbers that approach reasonable: Turning Point received 122 approvals (16.6 percent). The majority-White owned and operated organizations, Park Avenue and Recovery Resource Center, received the majority of the referrals. Park Avenue received 237 African American approvals (32 percent), and Recovery Resource Center (RRC) received 158 African American approvals (21.5 percent).

They briefly recap the signing of Julius Peppers before discussing James Starks and Letroy Guion, as well as the departures of James Jones and Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Seemingly, after Cleveland traded off the rights of running back Trent Richardson to Indy, their plans of 'Tanking The Season' became evident although it was everything but as the leaders of the AFC division have won 3 consecutive games and battled early season adversity, becoming arguably the most talked about franchise in the league. The question still remains...how are they winning all these games? Also on the format, many unexpected teams has underachieved and many has overachieved in the past month as preseason SuperBowl contenders are on the outside looking in @ postseason play in only a quarter into regular season play; traditional powerhouse franchises are winless and others are unbeaten thus far after major injuries and departures to skilled position players. Lastly, expect explosiveness on the offensive side of the field this weekend in a heated rivalry battle between 2 of the NFC North divisions biggest foes when the combination of 'Megatron' & Matthew Stafford lead Detroit into hostile environment when they travel to the 'Frozen Tundra' vs. 1 of the top QB's in the game Aaron Rodgers & the Packers. All of this tonight on the MINOR sTATEment!!!
Are you ready for some football?! Cliche, I know. But really, should we even have to ask? Another NFL season is here, as the Baltimore Ravens, despite some key departures, look to defend their Super Bowl title.
Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo guide you through each division with team-by-team (well the worthy teams) analysis and predictions.
Has George finally ventured to Mike's the AFC is weak and lacking elite teams dark side? Are the Broncos a deserving favorite, or capitalizing on a wide open field? Can Atlanta get the job done, now with even more pressure? How sexy are the Seahawks? Which sophomore star quarterback will suffer a slump, if any? And, since it happens every year, which teams will drop from the playoffs one season to the basement the next?
Expect Mike to jump back on a previous bandwagon darling and George to ride a surprising ship, that is sure to sink.
Gear up for the road to Super Bowl XLVIII. This is not just any other preview show. It's another Howitzer and Buzz-saw preview show. Previewing like only they can, while conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....
