The NFC South: A Bastion of Suck

drew sack

To all the fans of teams in the NFC with winning records, on the outside of the playoffs and looking in, allow me to extend my deepest apologies on behalf of the NFC South. Because the sad reality is that a team from our division could end this season with a 6-10 record, and still make it to the postseason. In fact, an NFC South team could feasibly make it to the postseason, and as Jon Gruden so wisely pointed out during Monday Night Football game, still get a top 10 pick in next year's draft. I realize how infuriating this must be for fans of teams like the Cowboys and Lions, who may have their seasons come to an end in week 16, despite winning as many games as these NFC South suck-bags … [Read more...]

Are the End Times Nigh for Roger Goodell?

someone, please, just kill him

Hubris. Narcissist. Sociopath. These are some of the words that come to mind when I think of the mess that Roger Goodell has created in his eight years as Commissioner of the National Football League. Goodell's career is on the fast-track to the outhouse as he has offered nothing but one lie after another regarding the Ray and Janay Rice domestic abuse case, not to mention the lies he created about the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints over the years and the careers he has destroyed. Remember Anthony Hargrove? Yeah, I thought so. This has gone on for the entirety of his draconian helm of the National Football League. He acts as judge, jury, and executioner with no due … [Read more...]

Super Bowl Drinking Game

Super Bowl drinking game

You know the rules. ¬†Drink every time: - Someone mentions that this is the first cold weather Super Bowl - Peyton says "Omaha" - Someone mentions that this Super Bowl is actually not taking place in New York but is being played in New Jersey (and, while you're at it, take an extra chug for yours truly, Fern Ronay a/k/a CowboysChick, who grew up five miles from Giants Stadium a/k/a MetLife Stadium) - Skittles are thrown, shown, eaten in honor of Beast Mode - Someone mentions Richard Sherman's tirade - Someone within a ten foot radius of you utters the words "I only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials." Speaking of the commercials, on the very remote, very off chance … [Read more...]

NFC East CHAMPS, Y’all!

Eagles 24, Cowboys 22, Sunday, December 29, 2013 I would rather have enjoyed a nice relaxing blowout win like the Eagles had over the Bears a week ago, but apparently, the Chipster and the boys in green thought it would be more fun to give me a heart attack. Hey, at least they won, and I will not be the first - or last - to say that I definitely didn't see 10-6 and the divisional title coming. Stud of the week: Should I go with Mychal Kendricks, who had a forced fumble AND a pick? What about Connor Barwin who batted down the 4th-and-1 conversion AND, if I recall correctly, also batted down the two point conversion pass attempt that would've tied the game? Or Brandon Boykin, with … [Read more...]

2013 Week 17 Picks

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that the NFL now has all divisional games the final week of the regular season. Rivalries, playoff spots on the line, likelihood of wackiness - it's got it all. The big news for 2013's week 17 is that two NFC divisions are "win and in" matchups, with the Bears hosting the Packers and the Cowboys hosting the Eagles. You knew one of those games would get flexed, and I'm psyched it was Eagles/Cowboys. The Eagles have had a wild ride this year: new head coach, new coaching staff, new defensive scheme, QB controversy, you name it. They shocked everyone by killing the presumptive NFC East front runner Redskins on Monday Night Football to open the season (yeah, … [Read more...]
