NFL News:

  • The pressure must have gotten to John Fox – it’s Truth Biscuit time in Chicago!
    • His first game will be next Monday night versus the Vikings.
  • With the Falcons bye week approaching, it appears Julio Jones – owner & wearer of the high flyin’ cleats in the banner photo – will not miss any time due to injury.
    • He hurt a hip flexor in the loss to Buffalo.
  • Based on stats through the first four games, Tom Brady is on track to be sacked 52 times this year.
    • To date, he’s been dropped 13 times. He was sacked for loss 15 times in all of the 2016 regular season.
  • The Seahawks got beat-the-hell-up last night in their victory over the Colts:
    • Left tackle Rees Odhiambo: Bruised heart.
      • HOW THE FUCK DID HE FINISH THE GAME?!
    • RB Chris Carson: Broken leg, below the knee
      • Done for the season
    • DE Cliff Avril: Pinched nerve; day-to-day
      • He lost feeling in his fingertips after an accidental kick to the head.
    • CB Jeremy Lane: Strained groin.
      • Day-to-day
  • As expected, Eagles fans took over the StubHub Center and turned an away game into home-field advantage. This Deadspin link has full audio of the debacle Eagles OT Jason Peters said “was like a home game”.

Finally, unrelated to football, it’s been a bad day for music fans. The 58 people killed at the Jason Aldean show in Las Vegas by a domestic terrorist, and news that Tom Petty is on life-support dead, have made for a very sad Monday.

I saw Tom Petty live once. It was the “True Confessions” tour with Bob Dylan in 1986.

    

It was pretty good. Each played 45 minutes on their own, and then combined for the final 30 minutes of the show. I owned that shirt for years; it eventually wore out.


Game Preview: Chiefs at Redskins

Tonight, two of the sports world’s finest ethnic slurs face off in Washington as the Kansas City Chiefs, owned by non-affiliated Christian & white male Clark Hunt, take on a Washington team owned by Jewish businessman & white male Dan Snyder.

Hunt, who lettered in soccer at Southern Methodist University in 1987, and therefore did not have any hand in the alleged murder of five hookers while Craig James definitely attended SMU between 1979-82, majored in business, worked at Goldman Sachs and was named head of Hunt Sports Group LLC when his father Lamar died. He shares ownership with his three siblings. He was influential in getting his father to back the creation of Major League Soccer, something that validated the league in its early days of operation.

Dan Snyder, a petty little man who has a tendency to sue any organization that writes untruthful things, is a businessman notorious for attempting to squeeze every penny out of the organizations he owns or belongs to as well as monetizing the fan base. I refer you to Dave McKenna’s piece from the Washington City Paper for more details. Snyder attempted to sue the paper & author for defamation, but the suit was withdrawn in the face of a SLAPP motion by the defendants. Currently surrounded by yes-men, he presides over a team that hasn’t done anything meaningful in the NFL since Joe Gibbs first discovered car racing.

The game itself should be a spirited affair, as Kansas City are the only remaining unbeaten team and Washington wants to keep pace with the Eagles & stay one game ahead of the Cowboys. Alex Smith is doing a commendable job holding back the tide wanting high draft pick Patrick Mahomes to come in & take the reins. Now that they have settled on a pronunciation, Washington is enjoying another Kirk Cousins franchise-tag year, as their recent devastation of the Raiders proved. They both have solid receiving corps, and while Washington has the advantage in the safety/corner department, they won’t be able to do much without being able to stop KC’s Kareem Hunt, who is the prime reason Alex Smith looks as good as he does.

It’s either going to be a 42-38 barnburner or a 7-6 slog. Gun to my head, I’d take the Chiefs.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NFL:
    • Washington at Kansas City – 8:15PM | ESPN / TSN
      • en español en ESPN2
  • WWE
    • Monday Night Raw – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360

Baseball playoffs start tomorrow with the AL play-in game, followed by the NL game & NHL home openers Wednesday. WE’RE GOOD UNTIL FEBRUARY!

Just to close, oldest brother took the Chiefs to cover (-6 1/2) and the over 48 1/2. The last play with the try to score fuck it up turnover and walk in for touchdown made that happen.

He scored a big ol’ wad of dough on that last play.

This is why we watch to the end kids.

That was fucking nuts.

What is, “Minnesota’s chances of making the playoffs”? I’ll take American History for $1400.

Feels weird saying that the Lions are may currently be the best team in the division.

I have no hate for any team in the NFC North.

“Well, I guess you need to hate more, then!”

Sometimes football is a lot like reading Camus as a teen. You wish you gave up and just jerked off before going to sleep.

Usually when you lose by 9 in overtime, it’s Buddy’s t-cell count after the ’86 AFC Championship game!
