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…
