complained reported Tuesday that my weekend slate of games featured 14 total points by losing teams. With WAS putting up 24 on MNF and MIA rocking a Color Rush Goose Egg, the last five NFL contests streamed into my home have provided 38 points scored by losing teams (approximately a touchdown per game). I need to seriously study for my PE exam because I’d like to just get it out of the way next spring but, when I get some time this offseason, we’re honing the models for Blax’s Bad Football Index.
Spoiler: 2017 is bad football (Darren Rovell quotes post with a Tweet about how great KC/OAK was before 35 entries about ballpark food prices).
Finally — and not to raise expectations too high — but I’d like to welcome Beerguyrob to the Quotables Hall of Fame. Much like PK, personal flaws matter not for these awards (and before you all get testy, consider the candidate pool we’ve got here) but one strong performance that just hits me right…well, it’s an Eli Super Bowl moment.
Don’t get all salty, other competitors, it’s not like he gets a bust or anything, just his gif. Like how Nick Foles is in for that seven touchdown game against OAK.
Anyways, solid work all around. Much like the MIA defense, everyone looks to be in mid-season form (barring any PED tests) and I’m fired up for the second half of the season. Submissions are here and results are below. And even though Halloween posts are up next Tuesday, I believe Week 8 submissions will hold pat in the usual spot (unless I can get DTZM to pin us at the top of the front page that day).
