Hyuk, yuk yuk.

Tho, I am liking their colors. What is that....satin purple? Seriously.

They will slaughter this week. I wish I had their defense on my FF team.

Oh, BTW...I also hope Colon Kaperdonk gets his 'fro knocked-off.

Blogger YIH October 16, 2016 11:53 AM  

That they will. Also considering how hapless the Clowns still are it looks like Tennessee will pick up another win.
Wouldn't surprise me that Jax wins again too.

@2 second that

Gearing up for a couple good NFC games...Eagles @ Redskins divisional matchup and Cowboys @ Packers with playoff seeding implications.

Jordan Reed TE is out for the Redskins from his 6th career concussion. Turns out he had his 1st concussion playing at Florida, didn't tell anyone, kept playing and suffered another concussion while still feeling the first one. He's been the Redskins number one receiver in yards and catches.

I do kinda like the low-gloss purple on the Vike's helmets. Looks more workmanlike - just a coat of primer, no need for a gloss finish.

Anonymous Hammerman October 16, 2016 12:21 PM  

Big test for the Cowboys to see if we can compete at the upper end of the NFC.

Texans v. Colts tonight.
Anyone cares?

NO

Funny. We were talking (sort of) about concussions.

I always like that white boy who played for the Colts as a WR? He didn't last very long....what was his name?

So in other words, the Vikings can be nobody.

Following on a VOXIAN remark last week about scripting, I am wondering if it's possible that Home Depot (Falcons) can beat Microsoft (Seahawks). Home Depot was having trouble peddaling seat licenses to the Gullwing (Mercedes-benz stadium being built in Atlanta). Well, I am about to find out.

The Clowns managed to rally to keep it closer than it should have been - but still lost. The Jags barely beat 'Da Queers. And WDF happened to the Steelers?

Seems to be a pattern:



Heading into Sunday's game against the lowly Dolphins, the Steelers looked like one of the best teams in the AFC. But as has happened more times than coach Mike Tomlin would like to remember, the Steelers have an uncanny ability to no-show against the league's worst teams.

It happened again in Miami against the one-win outfit that struggled to get first downs over the first five weeks of the season. Against Pittsburgh, Ryan Tannehill looked like a legit franchise quarterback, Jay Ajayi looked like Larry Csonka, and the Steelers were helpless to do anything about it.

When it was over, the Dolphins won easily, 30-15.

How bad has it been? Here are the gory details:

2009, Week 11: 6-3 Steelers lose to 2-7 Chiefs, 27-24. Line: Steelers -11.5
2009, Week 13: 6-5 Steelers lose to 3-8 Raiders, 27-24. Line: Steelers -15.0
2009, Week 14: 6-6 Steelers lose to 1-11 Browns, 13-6. Line: Steelers -10.0
2012, Week 3: 1-1 Steelers lose to 0-2 Raiders, 34-31. Line: Steelers -4.0
2012, Week 6: 2-2 Steelers lose to 1-4 Titans, 26-23. Line: Steelers -6.5
2012, Week 12: 6-4 Steelers lose to 2-8 Browns, 20-14. Line: Steelers -2.0
2012, Week 14: 7-4 Steelers lose to 4-8 Chargers, 34-24. Line: Steelers -7.5
2013, Week 4: 0-3 Steelers lose to 0-3 Vikings, 34-27. Line: Steelers -3.0
2013, Week 8: 2-4 Steelers lose to 2-4 Raiders, 21-18. Line: Steelers -2.5
2014, Week 4: 2-1 Steelers lose to 0-3 Buccaneers, 27-24. Line: Steelers -7.5
2014, Week 10: 6-3 Steelers lose to 1-8 Jets, 20-13. Line: Steelers -4.0
2014, Week 13: 7-4 Steelers lose to the 4-7 Saints, 35-32. Line: Steelers -3.5
2015, Week 16: 9-5 Steelers lose to the 4-10 Ravens, 20-10. Line: Steelers -10.0
2016, Week 6: 4-1 Steelers lose to the 1-4 Dolphins, 30-15. Line: Steelers -7.0

That's 14 losses over six seasons to teams with a combined record of 25-87, which works out to a winning percentage of .195. The Steelers, meanwhile, were 64-46, a winning percentage of .581. The Steelers were also favored in every game.

Yupp. Thank you.

I was setting my lines to go jug-fishing tonite, before it gets too chilly. Didn't have time to look him up.

I suppose the Patriots picked up Amendola, so they could have a man with glass shoulders, instead of a man with a glass head.

I still liked Collie, tho.

You wouldn't know from his face that he just threw a really bad interception.

Looks like the rest of the team lost interest as well.

Packers serving up the division on a silver platter to the Vikings. Vikings are already 3-0 in the division including a victory over the Packers.

Seattle is doing a fine job snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

BTW, I can't be the only one getting tired of these silly 'retro' uniforms. Of course, the 'new era' ones such as the all-orange(?!?!) Broncos gear Thursday suck too.
I'm surprised some team(s) haven't gone to pink and white yet.

Blogger SemiSpook37 October 16, 2016 7:19 PM  

@19

Yeah, that sounds about right. At least the rest of the AFCN lost today, so we're still a game ahead of the Ratbirds. I'll take it.

NFC North is the lowest difficulty setting there is.

...And Seattle wins by clever use of cheating. Julius Jones was about to pull that in within field goal range.

Sherwood was hooking on to Jones arm like it was date night.
How do you miss that?

I guess the same way they missed the DPI against Kearse in the end zone.

I hate DPI. They've never been able to call it consistently, but it's a huge penalty when it is called. They ought to split it into two penalties - 5 yards (no automatic first down) for incidental contact/handfighting/armbar stuff, and spot-plus-10 yards for flagrant "I got beat so I tackled him" stuff.

The flagrant ones are easy to call, so make the ones that aren't less impactful since they'll never be consistent calling them.

Or else, let people continue to debate whether the refs decided who won the game right or not.

I was about to fall asleep ... game in OT!

Blogger Aeoli Pera October 17, 2016 12:36 AM  

Texans were useless until the end, and even then it was decided by a very close pass. Exciting though, I won a dollar!

Anonymous Jack Amok October 17, 2016 9:55 PM  

Aeoli, if it helps ease your mind about the non-call of the DPI against Sherman, you can take a look at how it was that Julio Jones came to be open on that play in the first place.

Just a little Illegal Hands to the Face to get past Sherman that wasn't called either. So you can rest easy now, knowing Atlanta was not robbed of a chance at a field goal by a missed call.
