Things got started early today in London.  The Ratbirds missed their wake up call, however.  Yeeeeesh.

But we’re at the day’s halfway point finally.  What’s on tap this late afternoon?

 

Seattle at Tennessee (4:05pmEDT, FOX)

I like the Titans and Mariota in this one.  Take Tennessee and give the 2 points.  Plus, as usual, Pete Carroll is on drugs….

“I think we’ll continue to grow,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after last week’s victory over the 49ers. “We’re going to get better. I think we can see us making the improvement that’s going to be important for us.”

SMGDH

 

Cincinnati at Green Bay (4:25pmEDT, CBS)

The Bungles can’t score.  The Cheesedicks can’t stop anybody from scoring.  It’s the classic “Resistible Force meets the Movable Object” scenario.  That being said, the Packers probably have the better chance at the bounce back win.  Duh.  Take the Packers, give the 6.5.  Also, Marvin Lewis is doing his best Pete Carroll impression soooo….

“We have to have a direction of execution and things have to fit together and we’ve got to provide opportunity to attack the defense,” Lewis said. “We’ve got to do a great job attacking what is our perceived weakness of the defense and get the ball to our guys who can make plays.”

“Perceived” weaknesses.  LOL.

 

Kansas City at Nawt San Diego (4:25pmEDT, CBS)

First, Andy Reid has apparently accumulated too much cholesterol in his cerebral arteries….

“I’m from there so I’m an L.A. guy,” Reid said. “I’m glad pro football is back. It’s a big city and it can handle two teams.”

…but I get it.  Coachspeak.  AKA…bullshit.  If either team is still there in 10 years, I’ll shoot myself.  If both teams are still there, I’ll shoot you.

KC is the no brainer in this one, -3.  But honestly, I wouldn’t bet this game.  Alex Smith has overachieved and is due to fall.  Philip Rivers hasn’t exactly underachieved necessarily, but he has had a difficult time getting the motor running consistently, mostly due to lack of complimentary parts.  I think that changes today, even if it does occur only temporarily and in the wrong town.  Bolts get their first LA win by a FG late.

Also, CBSSports.com still has this game listed as being played in Qualcomm Stadium.  Way to go, CBS.  I mean it’s not like the Bolts moving from San Diego to LA was a big story or anything.  I understand how you might have missed it.  You’re doing fine.

 

OK folks.  Go, watch, drink, comment.

Make me proud.

But pace yourselves…we’ve still got the late late SNF game yet to go…

I know this doesn’t mean jack shit, but one of the major downsides of being on this site is that I really feel bad for the DFO-ers that root for the other team. It’s much more comfortable to have the other team’s fans be faceless anonymous entities.

Gratliff

Counterpoint: It makes it that much more satisfying

Romonobyl

I get great pleasure from it, but only if they’re for the P*ts. I get plenty in return for my own fandom, believe me!

Gratliff

What? Who doesn’t love dem Cowboys?

I always thought Yeah Right was more snarky than sarcastic.

Are there any Titans fans here? If so, feel free to mock the Seahawks. We’re cool.

The Maestro

Our esteemed Don T is a Titans fan. Hope you’re hanging in there, man. Let us know if you need anything.

Romonobyl

Yeah, been thinking about him too.

Don T; he’s without power. Hopefully he’s OK.

Beastmode Ate My Baby

Man, me too. It’d be great if our fucking president remembered that PR is part of, y’know, the U.S. and mobilized aid…

Gratliff

He’s in PR right? I’m legitimately surprised there are still buildings standing after that. Can’t even imagine what that must’ve been like.

Shogun Marcus

I dunno. I think it makes you a better human. If not, we’d be hawttake radio mouthbreather callers. *shudder*

Nah, its not 1701 destroying. Kirk took out Klingons with a broken ship.

This is 1701-D. Riker and crew losing to C-tier bad guys because they forgot to check Geordi’s visor if it was being bugged. Again.

Man, I can’t believe I missed that!

No argument here. Except C-tier is a bit high. This is f murray abraham bad.

Bears win was more impressive.

I’m not bitter at all

Did the bengals missed FG come at a particularly soul crushing point in the game? Oh who am I kidding, the entirety of every game is a soul crushing monstrosity for the bengals.

On the other hand, if everything is soul-crushing, then nothing is

Shogun Marcus

Redshirt and Mother Puncher. Congrats on the win.
/I’ve seen this movie. It’s the one where the defense finally kicks itself in the dick by breaking its back.

This must be your first Bengals game. Welcome!

For you non-Bengals fans, this is how a tie is started.

Do you hear that Seamus?

I see ABSOLUTELY no way this could backfire:

#askalexa if you could do a hardcore lesbian scene with any other girl….

#askalexa is there any chance of some leaked pics?

#askalexa aren’t you too hot to be dating buddy Murphy?

Hey I wouldn’t a put it past Capt. Bluebunny to think going for two was the right call.

Well, he makes stupid decisions, but he does tend to err on the side of conservative decisions.

agreed. But this makes me generally an outcast.

All bad? No.

Overrated due to genre and nostalgia?

Oh definitely
