NFL Open Thread
— DrewM

Bunch of meh games except for tomorrow night's showdown in NOLA.

The Steelers & Ravens would have been a good one but Big Ben is out, so it's lost some luster.

3 I need McCoy and Bernard Scott (my backfield sucks, so I have to trash-pick!) to roll; I decided to bench Forte for Mike Bell.  Yeesh.

Bengals to win today! Of course I said that last week, and look where it got me.

7 on the Steelers Ravens game:  This is going to be a telling point for the Steeler coaching staff.  We're about to find out if Big Ben and Troy have been propping Bruce Arians and Coach Tomlin up all year.  As a Steeler fan, I think I'm not going to like the answer.

"Meh"?  It's never meh when either the 'skins or Eagles are guaranteed a loss.

12 Unfortunately, on one team I have DeAngelo Williams and on the other McCoy --two teams both coached by morons who are hell-bent on throwing the ball regardless of the game circumstances.

This is where the Eagles take it to the house and the Redskins will burn up all their time outs and then try to put together a drive with less than two minutes on the clock. It ends the same way every week.

With the Boy's schedule, if they can't beat the Skins, the playoffs shouldn't be a concern.

The Boys allowed the Skins to shut them out for three-and a half quarters last Sunday in the Jerruh Dome. The rest of their schedule is brutal. Its a very real possibility they could lose four out of their next five games and go 9 and 7 if not 8-8.

93 Dear Bengals fans:  we don't call them the "Bungles" for nothing.  As a steeler fan,I've seen us blow many playoff opportinuties, but if the steelers fall a yard short, the bungles fall 20 yards short.

Win a superbowl after 1982 then you can talk... that was like (your first and...) what? 27 years ago? wow. gotta hurt.

104 Well, the late Peterson TD pretty much fucked it for me.  Too bad: his stats were pretty modest but Ryan's injury and Carolina's stubborn refusal to stick to their running game torpedoed my chances this week.

My Cowboys won on Turkey day.  I tried out being a 'skins fan and got my teeth kicked in, it was pretty special.  

Houston really needs to make a change in their front office, they're just clueless in games.  Mike Shanahan could take them deep into the playoffs.

Posted by: Dang Straights at November 29, 2009 03:09 PM (bOV32)

108 The Bills....won?

They won!!  Wooohooo!

You know, I was steaming about next week's trip to Toronto as usual, when ESPN showed highlights of what I perceived to be the Bills-Fins game.  My thought process went as follows: "huh, those are the Bills all right but what's with the Fins' jerseys?  ...wait, I thought we won the game, this looks like we're losing..."

It was at that point that ESPN revealed that it was the Grey Cup game and the ugly Bills road unis were actually those of the Montreal Alouettes.

That's just mean, ESPN.
