It would give me great pleasure and satisfaction if you would all please so kindly throw cheese at Brett Favrererer each time he takes the field at Lambeau tomorrow. It would also maybe stop the commentators weird love fest with him too.
That is all.

The Browns, on the other hand, got WR Chansi Stuckey, LB Jason Trusnik and two undisclosed draft choices. They also came very close to stealing a win from the Bengals last week. This week, they're playing the Bills. I have a feeling the Bills are just going to get worse and worse the more T.O. gets frustrated. So perhaps the Browns actually pull out a win on the road this week.
Crabtree finally realized that 1. he's an idiot, 2. he's not going to get more money and 3. if he gets redrafted next year, he's really not going to get more money. He agreed to a 6-year, $32 mil deal with the 49ers after holding out and somehow the moron actually got more money (previously was offered 5 years, $20 mil). We'll see if he's worth it. I think this year is probably going to be a bust for him.
Other news around the league, QB Donovan McNabb is listed as probable and will most likely start for the Eagles against the Bucs. QB Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start for the Seahawks. The Steelers will probably be without Troy Polamalu again [he's still busy making Head & Shoulders commercials (side note: Troy, I love that commercial. It makes me laugh. Good job!)]. Eli Manning is likely to start on Sunday despite his heel injury. The Cowboys are probably without WR Roy Williams and RB Felix Jones.
I'll post picks later today.
Sunday, October 4, 2009
Bengals @ Browns - Now the Browns really are bad as we think they are. I wouldn't be surprised if they go 0-16 this year.
Seahawks @ Colts - The Colts destroyed the Cards last week and Seneca Wallace is still most likely starting for the Seahawks. I expect to hear Manning to Wayne/Clark TD! a lot today.
Giants @ Chiefs - The Giants are one of the best teams in the NFL right now and the Chiefs are fighting for their rightful position near the bottom.
Ravens @ Patriots - I don't care what you say but Tom Brady isn't back just yet. His accuracy isn't back to what it was and the Ravens are red hot right now. They finally have an offense to match their defense. I expect to see a lot of unhappy Bostonians today.
Bucs @ Redskins - The Redskins are bad but the Bucs are worse.
Titans @ Jaguars - The Titans are too good of a team to end up 0-4 and 0-2 in divisional games. This is a must win for them.
Raiders @ Texans - When the coach is punching his assistant coaches (allegedly), there's an issue.
Bills @ Dolphins - Pennington is gone for the season and the Fins are 0-3. In this must-win at home, it's probably going to be all wildcat. The Bills have Lynch back this week but Jackson has been playing well anyway so I don't think it'll make that much of a difference. McKelvin is out and T.O. is clearly pissed, I think the Bills could start to spiral downward fast.
Jets @ Saints - The Jets just seem overrated to me. Remember last season when the Bills started 5-1 or something like that. I have a feeling the Jets might pull something like that and then just crash and burn. The Saints on the other hand have been destroying opponents. They give up a lot of points but no one is close to them in points for.
Cowboys @ Broncos - The Broncos might be 3-0 but they haven't beaten anyone worthwhile. The Bengals are the only decent team and that was on a fluke TD. Otherwise, they've beaten the Browns and the Raiders. Welcome to week 4: your first test.
Rams @ 49ers - The 49ers look good and even without Gore they should pound the Rams today.
Chargers @ Steelers - The Steelers aren't looking like the defending Super Bowl champs. The Chargers might have LT back today but I'm picking the Steelers to sneak out with the win.
Packers @ Vikings - If this game was in Green Bay, I'd be picking the Pack all way. But in Minnesota, I don't think the fans are going to that angry with Favre.

Here's the thing with T.O. Yeah he's a bit of a drama queen. But here's the thing with this whole situation, the Bills didn't win. So yeah T.O. is being a baby about losing his streak, but I can understand his frustration. If the Bills won and he was bitching about things, I'd just be like oh that's just T.O. being T.O. However, since they didn't, I get it. I'd be annoyed too if my team lost and I didn't contribute to the team at all. So for the first time in my life, I'm going to say, "Lay off T.O."

Starting QB: Donovan McNabb...thank you for breaking your ribs.
Starting RB: Ladanian Tomlinson....way to sprain your ankle, man.
3rd WR: Anthony Gonzalez...falling down in a heap all by yourself is obviously the most epic way to sprain your MCL
DEF: Chicago...of course Urlacher is going to sit out this season.
K: Mason Crosby...well straining your abs sounds like you just ate a little too much at an all-you-can-eat buffet. At least you're still listed as probable so I won't be too mad.
Painful team...the fantasy gods are not loving me this season.

"I never came here to kiss Bill Belichick's, you know, rings. I came to win. Let's just put it that way. So we'll see what happens. I'm certainly not intimidated by New England...," Ryan said previously. Now he's still going on about it; saying, "When I said that about Belichick, I'm just letting him know I'm not intimidated by him. He's got the same position I have. We're both head coaches in this league. He just happens to have a hell of a lot more Super Bowl wins. I don't have a win." That's okay, Rex. Because anytime you think you're about to become intimidated by him just remember this ridiculously funny episode of South Park, where Cartman points out that Belichick is quite the little cheater.
"Just before the last Super Bowl, Bill Belichick gathered his football players and said let’s win this one for real… Just this one time.. Let’s not cheat. You know what happened? They lost." - Eric Cartman, South Park

So the Vikings signed Favre today. *Sigh* Thanks Minnesota. So here's the thing: Week 8 the Vikings are visiting Lambeau. Cheeseheads, I'm begging you. Find as much moldy, gross, stinky cheese and throw it at Favre. Please.
Saturday, August 15, 2009
- I'm genuinely disappointed the Browns didn't sign him. The irony of Vick playing in the dawg pound would have been awesome.
- He spent a lot of time in jail. He's sorry. Other guys in the league have killed people (ok allegedly have killed people) and they didn't get the flack Vick's been getting. Not that I'm saying what he did was right but he served his time. Forgive him already.
- PETA ...you piss the world off. Seriously. Everytime you throw paint on some woman with too much money's fur coat, you know she just goes out and buys another one. Therefore, you are actually assisting in killing animals too. So yeah, PETA, go away.
- Also, another PETA thing... Dear PETA, who is crazier: you or Philly fans? I think we all know the answer. This season is going to be a wild ride.

Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez signed a five-year deal worth up to $60 million, with $28 million guaranteed. The starting QB for the upcoming season hasn't been named yet and it is open for either Sanchez or Kellen Clemens.

Jason Taylor is back with the Miami Dolphins for a year worth $1.5 million. The former Dancing with the Stars star (that's right I said Dancing with the Stars star, not football star) played (when he wasn't injured, which was never) last season with the Washington Redskins, but was released in March. After spending 11 seasons in Miami, it only makes sense for him to return and stay/retire there.
Tuesday, May 5, 2009
It has come to my attention that you are contemplating (yet again) a return to the NFL. I regret to inform you that unfortunately, I have had enough and frankly there is no room in my NFL fandom for you to return. I have come up with possible reasons for your return:
- You want to further increase your chances of keeping your Most INTs record by throwing at least another 30 this season.
- You heard the Vikes are interested and have gone senile enough to think that purple would look good on you.
- You're hoping to go to a Florida team since that's where most people go to retire anyways.
Good luck in your retirement.
P.S. The hat suits you.

Falcons acquire TE Gonzalez
The Chiefs traded TE Tony Gonzalez (who wanted a trade last season) to the Atlanta Falcons for a 2010 2nd round pick. Not a bad deal since Gonzalez is getting up their in age.
Panthers sign QB Delhomme to a 5 year, $42.5 million extension
"It's all about being able to know that I can finish my career here in Carolina," Delhomme said. "That's what I've wanted, all I've ever wanted." Five years for a 34 year old QB is a long time.
People actually want QB Losman
Really?!? The Broncos and the Panthers have inquired about the Bills' back-up QB J.P. Losman. Apparently the Broncos are all about collecting QBs who can't play. But I guess Losman could back up Delhomme well enough in Carolina. Just keep handing the ball off J.P. Don't try to throw.
Colts save salary cap space with Wayne restructuring
WR Reggie Wayne agreed to a contract restructuring that would allow the Colts to save some salary cap space. Details haven't been released yet on how much it would save.

Week 1 - vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - Well as long as the 2008 Jags show up and not a new and improved Jacksonville team, the Colts shouldn't have a problem with this one.
Week 2 - at Miami Dolphins - Good Monday Night Football matchup.
Week 3 - at Arizona Cardinals - I still maintain that their appearance in last season's Super Bowl was a fluke. But I guess we'll see how well Warner can connect with his receivers.
Week 4 - vs. Seattle Seahawks - Yeah this one's in the bag.
Week 5- at Tennessee Titans - This is a huge division match-up! I think that its outcome will be a big foreshadow for the remainder of the season.
Weel 6 - Bye - Rest up boys!
Week 7 - at St. Louis Rams - Once again, it's in the bag. Thank you NFC West.
Week 8 - vs. San Francisco 49ers - Read above.
Week 9 - vs. Houston Texans - Another big divisional game, I have this feeling Houston is going to have a good season.
Week 10 -vs. New England Patriots - Bring it on! With Brady back in the line-up, the Pats could be a huge threat again. It brings back the drama to this rivalry and makes for a great reason to sing, "I've been waiting all day for Sunday night."
Week 11 - at Baltimore Ravens - Another tough game and without homefield advantage. Hopefully the Ravens defense and their newly found offensive can be tamed by the Colts explosive offense.
Week 12 - at Houston Texans - Back to what I said about week 9, except in Houston.
Week 13 - vs. Tennessee Titans - Another one that makes me nervous.
Week 14 - vs. Denver Broncos - Dear Kyle Orton, Thanks for the win. Love, Leah
Week 15 - at Jacksonville Jaguars - We'll see how the Jags season plays out, this could be a big one for the Colts playoff hunt.
Week 16 - vs. New York Jets - I'm not worried.
Week 17 - at Buffalo Bills - I will be freezing cold cheering in the stands for this one. I think the Colts will make the playoffs before this game though so the starters probably will be on the bench.
With the exception of the mid-season madness starting with the Pats game, I'm feeling pretty confident this season.

I guess the Broncos aren't too worried about winning this year. Orton? C'mon seriously?!
Although, on second thoughts, all they have to do is finish 8-8 in the amazingly talented AFC West to make the playoffs. So I guess Orton might be good enough to help the team finish .500.

So I was trying to decide who to cheer for. I ripped apart both teams pretty bad all season long. But when looking back on my posts this season, I absolutely cannot morally cheer for the Cards. I have such a hate on for the two west divisions that I can't do it. So go Steelers! Plus my Uncle Doug will be disappointed in me if I cheer against the Steelers haha. So here's my letter to Big Ben:
Dear Mr. Roethlisberger,
Please don't get sacked 7 times and blow the game.
Sunday, January 25, 2009
So Friday night some friends and I were out and we got into a discussion of what is better: the NCAA or the NFL? After some valid comments, my buddy Luke says "College ball is packed with more action and goodness." Action and goodness...needless to say the discussion ended because no one knew how to reply to that. But I did promise Luke he'd get a quote on my blog for that one so once more ladies and gentlemen:
"College ball is packed with more action and goodness." - Luke Morris

Ravens @ Steelers - In Roethlisberger's rookie year, he was in Joe Flacco's shoes. A rookie in the AFC Championship game. Unfortunately for Flacco, he didn't play like Big Ben did when Ben was a rookie. Flacco, instead, played like a rookie. Careless mistakes, 3 INTs, 3 sacks...just not a good day for the Ravens offense to get anything going. The Ravens tried to get things going with their running game and McGahee scored 2 TDs before a nasty hit from Steelers safety Ryan Clark left McGahee apparently unconscious on the field with a few minutes left in the game. (Note: from what I've read, McGahee is expected to make a full recovery). The Steelers look like they could be onto their 6th Super Bowl championship which would be the most for any franchise. Although, it could be interesting if Hines Ward remains injured after leaving the game and not returning with a knee injury.
Monday, January 12, 2009
Sunday, January 11, 2009
Eagles @ Giants - The soaring Eagles continued playing red hot while the Giants just played like they only half showed up. The Giants just couldn't get anything going and were held out of the endzone and to 5 field goal attempts (only 3 were successful). They also couldn't convert 2 crucial 4th downs in the 4th quarter. With the Eagles win today and the Cardinals win yesterday, this is the first time a top 3 seed isn't in the NFC Championship game. Now there is a WTF part to this outcome, the Eagles have to travel to Arizona for the game. That's right the Cardinals get home field advantage...WTF. I'm giving that one to the Eagles.
Chargers @ Steelers - Run Willie run! Willie Parker ran all over the Chargers defense for 146 yds and 2 TDs. The Chargers held on for the 1st half but in the 2nd half the Steelers showed them who's boss. If the Chargers had have won today, all 4 road teams would have upset the home team and that would have been a WTF moment but luckily, the Steelers put the Chargers in their place after breaking my heart last week. Now the Ravens will visit Pittsburgh for the AFC Championship game. I'm feeling a Ravens upset to make it an all-bird Super Bowl.
Cardinals @ Panthers - Now the WTF part. Panthers are 9-0 at home. Kurt Warner and the Cardinals can't play on the East coast (remember that Cards/Pats game). But apparently the Cardinals didn't let geography get in their way. The Cards completely owned the Panthers who were most analysts (and my) Super Bowl favourites. The Panthers had 6 turnovers including 5 INTs from Delhomme. At one point, I think Delhomme actually forgot which team he was playing for. Steve Smith only had 2 receptions and his first one didn't come until the end of the 3rd quarter. Now the Cardinals will face either the Giants in New York or host the Eagles in Arizona...that's right potentially ANOTHER home playoff game for Arizona...is this global warming screwing things up again?
Monday, January 5, 2009
Colts @ Chargers - All I have to say is I hate the Broncos for their late season self-destruction which gave the AFC West to the Chargers. And now my little broken heart will weep for days as I pray the Steelers defense makes the Chargers offense cry for help. I swear I'm not bitter at all...
Ravens @ Dolphins - The Ravens defense dominated the Dolphins. The Fins turned the ball over 5 times including 4 INTs from Pennington. It was just ugly. Pennington looked far more like the rookie than Flacco did. Although, I do have to give props to Miami for coming back from last season's pathetic 1-15 finish to winning the AFC East and making the playoffs this season. Ravens meet the Titans on Saturday; should be a good one!
Eagles @ Vikings - The surging Eagles continued to surge with a win in Minnesota, which isn't very surprising. The Eagles will face the reigning Super Bowl champs, the NY Giants, on Sunday in New York. The division rivals should put on pretty good battle.
