It’s Your Oak/SD, Dal/NYG Slim Pickin’s Thread

So this is how we’re punished for waking up squirrelly to watch lousy (yet entertaining) football played on a different continent? Fine.

Oak @ SD: Raiders are 2-3 with a 2 point loss to the stinking Bears as the only outlier on their sked as far as expected wins and losses. They’ve got the young troika in place (Carr, Cooper and Murray) to make things happen but the odds are against them in this long-dysfunctional franchise. The Chargers are #1 in total yards per game but only 15th in scoring. Lots of empty yards gained between the 20’s? Gordon doesn’t have a TD yet and won’t get one today (he’s out) but that has more to do with Derlaygo playing from behind a fair bit.

Dal @ NYG: Somebody on the internet told me that the last not-Romo to start and win a Cowboys game was Stephen Magee back in ’10. That can’t be right, can it? I’d look it up but I’m too damn busy writing these previews. Do you know how long it takes to look up one or two factlets and rev up the glib machine? Which Giants team will show for role call today? Will it be the shit-kickers that spanked the Slurs? How ’bout the squad that was dis-emboweled by the Eagles? Perhaps the silly squad that squeaked by the lousy 9’ers will shout “Here, Sir!” One never knows-I guess that’s why I watch every week…

I’ll bet Rhonda Rousy could whoop Strahan’s ass….. and straighten his teeth too.

So, what’s the odds that they’ll bring Romo back before he’s fully healed, he reinjures himself, and the Cowboys don’t win another game this season?

Martin

One can dream.

During the game Romo said he can go next week, so it’s a go.

Col. Duke LaCross

Since he’s on IRDTR I thought they had to hold him out until Thanksgiving at the earliest.

He said he could go next week, doesn’t mean it’ll happen. Too bad.

I have been hoping for that to happen but thought it would be too mean to say. I didn’t think about prefacing it with “what are the odds”. Thank you Zymm.

I’m hoping we hurt his back again on Monday Night Football (when I’ll be in Vegas, watching).

But any Cowboys schadenfreude is good schadenfreude

Hell of a 4th quarter there, Chargers. Maybe try playing like that a little earlier in the game next time.

Rivers has thrown over 120 pass attempts in the last 2 weeks – his arm is liable to fall off if they keep playing like this

blackroseMD1

Yep.

Hopefully that first round pick the Bolts spent on a Running Back will start to work out soon.

Martin

Fucking Jets.

blackroseMD1

Wow…terrible officiating in today’s game. Just absolutely terrible.

Attempting to catch a pass is OPI now, evidently

blackroseMD1

I have a feeling this whole crew will be hearing from the league office this week.

Martin

OPI is the dumbest motherfucking penalty in all of sports.

Yeah I only caught the 4th Quarter so I can’t speak about the rest of the game, but one of the worst officiated quarters I have seen. Sassy ref was not good today.

blackroseMD1

The other three quarters weren’t nearly as bad as the fourth, but they definitely weren’t good.

You don’t usually see a Romobyl without Romo.

Down by 16, under 2 min left. Checkdown to the running back every play.

blackroseMD1

While Woodhead is a threat to take it to the house every play, I really would like to see some vertical passing here.

blackroseMD1

Or not…

Princeton Coach Bot 2000 looks like he is locked up on the sidelines. Someone call Jerry Jr to Ctrl-Alt-Del him to reboot the software.

If rivers throws an INT here I’m going to need snacks adrenal gland to chew on.

blackroseMD1

I’ll have to trade in these beers for a gallon of whiskey.

Gratliff

Cowboys failure and Kevin Owens standing out the STaples center and announcing in front of a crowd that the statue of Magic Jackson is pointless. Maybe tonight won’t be so bad after all.

blackroseMD1

2 minutes left…down by sixteen…

Time to start drinkin’
