NFL Week 9

The Vikings will begin and end the day on top of the NFC North. That is all.

UPDATE: CODE RED! CODE RED!

Speaking at “An Evening with Vin Scully” at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Saturday, the longtime Los Angeles Dodgers announcer was asked about the response from owners, players and commissioner Roger Goodell to the demonstrations, which players have used to protest racial injustice and police brutality.

“I have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed,” Scully said, according to multiple videos of the moment posted on social media. “I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday. And it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year. Didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.”

These posts remind me of that Seinfeld joke:

Lions Take Top Spot, Analysts "Shocked"

In an incredible turn of events, the Detroit Lions instantly vaulted from third to first place in the NFC North, a move that should have been mathematically impossible. It happened shortly after Vox "Kiss of Death" Day noted that the Vikings couldn't possibly lose three games at once. A source close to the Vikings' coaching staff tells us they read this pronouncement and said, "Sounds like a challenge." Slamming into the Packers at terminal velocity, the benighted norsemen brought both teams down to a defeat so total that legal analysts are debating whether an infinite loss means losing every future game as well.

"I should have done this years ago," said area man Lars Goobersen, as he jumped out the window of his fourth-story apartment.

First Sunday this season I can actually catch the Vikings real-time and it's the "bye" week. Meh.

Aeoli Pera - stop encouraging Vox.

FIFY :))

I see your story features the one of the only two "superheros" who actually exist.

What happened to Area Man's sidekick, Local Boy?

"Area Man Rescues Three Neighbors in Early Morning House Fire", or "Local Boy Saves Drowning Child From Lake"]

wow. a two game lead AND the bye?

Packers have probably lost Rodgers for the season, so they're toast.

the Lions and Bears are tied at three wins ... and suck like they normally do.

therefore, i shall jinx you by congratulating you on the Vikes having the division locked up by the halfway point of the season!


here's the real question though;
are the Vikes good enough to take the #1 seed away from Philly?

The Browns and Bengals managed to royally screw up an important trade deal, the Buckeyes at Iowa, and the Crew is leaving for Austin. (Now, Wales I could possibly understand, but for Austin?)

Blogger James Dixon November 05, 2017 11:28 AM  

> the Buckeyes at Iowa,

Yeah. It looks like the Big 10's only hope for the playoffs is Wisconsin.

Hey, my family is STILL not watching the NFL, not until every single player stands AND does not lock arms during the anthem. It is NO TIME for a political protest. I didn't like it when the NFL began wearing pink in October. I thought the Salute to the Troops was a good one time thing in 2001, but it shouldn't have continued for so long (or the wars). Cut it out NFL. I am beginning to find better things to do than waste hours upon hours sitting sedentary watching football.

@10:

You think they can just stand and pretend everything is fine.

They can NEVER go back to that. They have sold out, and I can never watch again.

I will not pretend its fine, I will not pretend an anti-White league with anti-White players is okay.

Its done. The horse has left the barn, but the train is fine.

As if we needed another reason to admire Vin Scully.

Oh man, my sides! Where are these tears coming from and why do my cheeks hurt!

I stand with Vin...the only way I ever watch the NFL again is if the owners sack Roger Goddell

One weird trick to kill the popularity of your multibillion-dollar brand -- analysts are SPEECHLESS!

Surprisingly the luckless (OK, I'll stop, he's done for the year anyway) Colts beat the Texans. And for some bizarre reason the Rams keep winning. No Clown act this week so the Niners get to edge them out in the Toilet Bowl rankings.
And from the Zman: What’s Wrong With The NFL. Namely, the protests were simply the last straw.
Obviously the NFL has a lot of problems, even if they sack Baddel (which I wholeheartedly support).

Anybody who still follows the criminals in the National Felons League can explain why the Saints can call a disabled Vet divisive because he wants nothing to do with them.

Except to wipe them off of his shoe.

Blogger Ransom Smith November 05, 2017 6:41 PM  

Deadspin has the saltiest article up about Vin Scully. The comments are shockingly garbage leftist buzzwords.

Yeah they're toast, 2 1/2 games behind my favorite team to make fun of - who could wind up winning the division!

Jerry Jones is found out to be leading the charge to get rid of Goodell.

Cowboys opponents go five consecutive games (and counting) with not one holding call.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

Blogger Lazarus November 05, 2017 11:15 PM  

In 2016, there was an average of 22.5 Offensive Holding penalties per team league wide.

I am sure it is nothing. Statistical glitch. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.........

A lot of people may be unaware or have forgotten that Vin Scully called play-by-play for NFC telecasts on CBS for years.

A lot of people may be unaware or have forgotten that Vin Scully called play-by-play for NFC telecasts on CBS for years.

I remember him calling playoff games in the 1970s, yes. But after a recent conversation with several people I don't think anybody under 50 knows that.
