Your Thursday Night NFC Central Showdown Open Thread

Green Bay is playing their third game in twelve days. Bears fans are calling for the neck of Mike Glennon. Which of these teams will be able to hide their godawful flaws the most effectively? For the answer to this and many other questions one must go… TO THE GAME!

 

BEARS/PACKERS: Chicago stung the “Can’t Play Away From Home” Steelers with a 23-17 loss last week using the deadly combo of an atrocious passing game and an effective series of prayers to the almighty. Green Bay won an OT thriller over the Bengals using the arm of Rodgers and the leg of Crosby. Kudos to both for coming up with the unlikely Vic. Now for the not-so-good news. The Packers O-line is banged up something fierce-three backups are on I.R. and both Bakhtiari and (stifles giggle) Bulaga are listed as doubtful. (“Look at Rodgers run for his life!”) He’s been sacked 13 times already and has 4 turnovers. Ty Montgomery’s effort in the running game hasn’t worked out very well so far. His longest run from scrimmage has been eight yards but he is leading all rb’s in YAC. Chicago is also looking for a bit of balance on O but the trouble is in the passing end of things. The Giraffe is becoming known as Humpty Dumpdown and this is reflected in rb Howard leading the team in receiving yards last week with (Oof!) 26. The Bears rushing attack is ranked eighth thanks to the good work of Howard and Tarik “She Fed Me Tea And Oranges That Came All The Way From China” Cohen. (“Take that, Berman!”) The hope among the faithful is that Truth Biscuit will get the start after the bye week but his receiving corps will still consist of a “Who’s That?” lineup of Kendall Wright, Deonte Thompson and Zach/Dion Miller/Sims. That’s a shit-ton of not-talent right there. But hey, the winner of the game will break the 94-94-6 won/lost deadlock. The “They’ve played each other a few times over the years” chestnut should manifest itself as tinnitus by the end of the game.

 

Go get ’em, word-wranglers!

So on Sunday I’ve got this pretty cool looking bag of real Italian pasta with a bowtie shape.

My #1 at work brought it for me when he traveled to Italy for 3 weeks.
It’s beautiful with a ribbon of sun dried tomatoes and a ribbon of spinach.

The Italian flag!

I’m gonna make an alfredo sauce with pancetta and mushrooms and pour that over the pasta.

Hell yes!
Spinach salad a little garlic bread maybe a pinot grigio?

Oh my.

Yanno, once in a while I think that those guys complaining about the NFL getting wussified have a point, but then I see a play like what happened to Davante Adams, and I remember why they’re wrong.

Guh. Packers-Bears games aren’t even infuriating; they’re just depressing.

The only thing depressing about this game was that vicious dirty hit on Davante Adams.

So…while we be talking about awful injuries, hope Knox is doing okay. Horrible spine injury, and even a few years later it was good and bad.

Col. Duke LaCross

That was one of the more gruesome things I’ve ever seen on a football field.

Doktor Zymm

I don’t know how the current state of long term health care is, but if you spend any time in the NFL, you should get full lifetime health. ESPECIALLY if something awful like that happens to you. It’ll be lifelong rehab, but if the NFL doesn’t support or fund that? FUCK EM.

It is not as good as the brand name. The plain Stop & Shop Cola’s pretty good, but the hands-down winner is America’s Choice AC Cola. Which tastes like RC. And they might not make anymore because Waldbaum’s, Pathmark, A&P, etc. closed down.
