Team Preview Schedule: AFC East and NFC East

I said I would re-post the team preview schedule for everyone periodically as a reminder for each of the writers to DO YOUR JOB!, so here you go.  Extra special thanks to Horatio for breaking our collective preview cherry.  Nice work, baseball fan.  The folks in bold below have not confirmed whether or not they are doing a preview.  Feel free to confirm or volunteer below (should you want to usurp the preview from one of the slackers).  If no one does a preview for a certain team, we can just post a .gif of Dan Snyder eating pudding or something.

NFC East – 7/27, 7/28, 7/29, 7/30

AFC East –  8/3, 8/4, 8/5, 8/6:

  • Patriots: Electric Mayhem
  • Bills:  Electric Mayhem/Upstate Underdog?
  • Jets: Lord Revisisle (confirmed!)
  • Dolphins: Warthog

The only day I celebrate is National Goddamned Nothing Day

You goyim can keep Christmas, but don’t take this away from me.

I earnestly thank ye good Hebes (no ofence) for bringing goyim into the lexicon. It truly is one of my 3-5 favourite non-vulgar words.

So you celebrate the absence of something? Whoa.

I had such a huge crush on Berlin’s singer back in the day.

And I kind of miss videos like this.

yes and yes!

Does anyone think of meatloaf when they click on the ‘dashboard’ feature? Because I certainly don’t.

Why aren’t we tackling the important issues? Today is apparently National Scotch Day, and I haven’t had a scotch yet. Damn it all!

Here is an artist’s rendering of Scotchnaut on National Scotch Day:

Ok, scotchnaut, I spent 12 days in Scotland two months ago. What should I bust out from my collection in order to celebrate National Scotch Day?

scotchnaut
Member

First things first-I love me the scotch but am not an expert.

The Macallan makes folks drool but gives me bad breath the next day because I always have too much of it.

I love The Dalwhinnie. It’s a great “I’ve had a good/bad day” kinda scotch.

When push comes to shove, it’s the The Glenlivet 18 for me. It’s so far beyond the 12. It’s as though they’re two different beverages.

What you be drinking, Brett?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I tend to be an Islay scotch guy. I have a weak spot for Laphroaig Quarter Cask and Triplewood as well as a couple of the new expressions from Ardbeg. Was thinking about busting out the Bruichladdich Laddie tonight but also have a MacAllan 18 that could whet my whistle.

[tries to tamp down his envy]

Did you do a tour of any of the distilleries?

BrettFavresColonoscopy
Member

I hit 16 distilleries in 12 days. So yeah.

scotchnaut

You fucker.

[fails to tamp down envy]

Horatio Cornblower

He hit 8 of those distilleries with his rental car after drinking at the first 8.

I went with the Laddie. Good, but not as good as the other options I listed. May tuck back into the Triplewood before bed.

I’m about ready to go with the Dolphins, once I decide between 8-8 and 7-9. One question, and it’s a pretty dumb one since I am pretty dumb, how do I submit a post?

ballsofsteelandfury
Member

That’s a good question, actually. I think DTZM or Rikki should handle that one.

BoS is totally right, but if they don’t get around to addressing it by your team’s date this may help as a substitute. As an absolute fallback, any of us can put it up for you, but since we are all authors on the site (methinks) you should be able to see the little black bar at the top the includes a [DOOR FLIES OPEN], a dialogue box, and then a ‘+’ sign from the left side of the screen. This is definitely a quick and dirty way to get it done. Mousing over the ‘+’ sign will give you a menu for three things, the first of which says ‘Post.’ Clicking that will give you an opportunity to create a new post and to at least save it as a draft. Then when you are at the DFO Dashboard–the page where it lists upcoming posts and recent comments and whatnot–you can access your draft there for future editing.

I hope that helps a bit until the guys can get around to it. I’m sure that’s not super clear.

Thanks so much. I must be doing something wrong. No ‘+’ on the toolbar. Like most places, I snuck in unnoticed and it’s all good until suddenly I need to be noticed.

ballsofsteelandfury

It looks like you need to get author capabilities. Rikki or DTZM can grant them.

Never mind!

LOVE THE EDIT BUTTON!

If I can offer a couple easy tips:

There’s an option when creating a post to schedule it for a specific day and time (in central time, I think?). I would suggest writing up your preview when you can–even if it’s really early–and scheduling it to publish on the suggested day.

With that, you can update it as needed or if you want anyone else to give it a proofreading or editing once-over, you would have the time to do that. Not that such things need to happen around here–we TELL not SPELL, amirithe?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

This is not the kind of tip I expected you to offer.

Old School Zero

That tip doesn’t come for free.

I’ve been gathering up facts and figures on the Chargers last season (BOLTMAN doesn’t do STATISTICS, NERD! [starts the wave]), and holy shit I’m kind of depressed. The pain will only help the preview, I think.

I cannot wait for all these previews. Like, ridiculously so.

Well, if you want me to string together vicious swears at Geno Smith, I will confirm my designation as writer for the Jets preview.

I figured a proper Jets preview would take the form of a suicide note, but this would also work.

If no one does a preview of a certain team THAT TEAM DOESN’T GET TO PLAY IN THE NFL THIS YEAR.

I think I’m going to do Tennessee and then Houston, rather than the way it is on the schedule Cuntler put together, if that’s okay.

I’m going to need a ton of *ahem* snow *ahem* to make it through those previews.

You! I meant You’ll need it!
