Your “Finally a Good Game!” SNF Open Thread

After the “games” we sat through today, we finally get a decent matchup tonight.  It’s too bad that we have to endure the incoherent ramblings of Cris Collinsworth, but we all have crosses to bear.

In non-football news, UCLA has fired Head Coach Jim Mora Jr. Thus begins another cycle of UCLA sucking balls while USC is good but not quite as good as they should be given the lack of competition.  Seriously, if anyone should go it’s the AD, Dan Guerrero.  The university has never committed to building a football program and has instead rested on the laurels of John Wooden by pretending to be a top basketball school.  How has that worked out?

Seriously, Trump should have let them rot in a Chinese jail.  Who the fuck thinks it’s a good idea to go to a foreign country and steal shit?  They should have been kicked out of the university for embarrasing themselves and everyone associated with UCLA.  But good old Dan Guerrero was the first one to thank Trump and has let the coach allow the players to “work” their way back onto the team.  To borrow a meme from tWBS:

Let’s move on to something surprisingly good:  THIS GAME!

The red-hot Philadelphia Eagles can give themselves a 4 loss lead with 6 games to play with a win over the Cowboys.  This is Game Two of Ezekiel Elliot’s suspension and no one has effectively come forward to make up for his absence.  If the Cowboys could lose to RAMMIT at home, they can get destroyed by Philly.

Hopefully, the Eagles can get out of this game with no injuries.  As you can see with the Cowboys, teams are way worse when key players are out and that diminishes the appeal of the game, the team, and the league.

BTW, if Jerry Jones can somehow can Goodell’s ass, I will be perfectly happy with the Boys winning the next 6 Super Bowls.  Call me Faust, I don’t care.

Get to it, you heathens!

hmmmm, it seems “run at the candy centre” of the DAL defense is effective

I’ve been looking forward to Sunday football, but for some reason I just can’t get into it today.
I’m getting fucking old.

Too much roast beef?

So are the brains of the players.

With everything going on tonight, I’ve been in and out watching this. Why was a linebacker (?) kicking-off for the Iggles?

Pederson has been on the path to being a head coach ever since Andy Reid came up to him on the sideline and said “You got the second half.”

No one had the heart to tell Doug that Andy was actually asking him if he had the second half of Andy’s Subway six-foot party sub.

Shogun Marcus

Was that back in Green Bay? Cuz that would’ve been tough, holding the clipboard AND the sammich!

litre_cola

That was a fucking cagey 2pt conversion.

King Hippo

I would have bet anything on QB draw

I hate that play so much. There’s no way it ever works without WRs blocking early, but it’s never called.

This time I am A-OK with it.

If someone were to be the big witness that flipped on some NFL lawsuit that provided the key to destroying The Shield, that someone would hopefully be Michelle Tafoya.

Those stat lines are terrifying

blaxabbath

In the QT app commercial, does the QT lady say, that was “impressive” or “aggressive”?

I never understood why folks spend a fortune visiting family for T-Giving only to do it again about a month later. Those two holidays could use a little breathing room.

It’s helpful with divorced parents. And expensive.

We’re gonna host for the first time ever this year to about 8. Our place isn’t huge though so I’m not gonna do a totally enormous spread.

So what do you all cook at Christmas? My fam just did turkey and bought a honey baked ham if we had a lot of guests.

Usually more or less the same as Thanksgiving.

If it’s just the immediate House LemonJello, we mix it up – ham, turkey, steaks have all been done. If we’re hosting extended family, we’ll go with turkey and ham with all the sides and fixins.

Starting around ‘74 we cooked one of the new immigrant kids in the neighborhood. No one ever noticed.

That was the Bungles’ first win outside Ohio since Week 1 last year? Holy Cripes.

Please let the Chargers make the playoffs and just get murdered at home by a wild card.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Magary had both RAMMIT and the Chargers in the playoffs in his preseason predictions.

That’s just the biggest reward to the most terrible human being owners.

I’m okay with limiting the number of players/lengths of td celebrations. These are already wearing thin,

You can tell Switzer’s from North Carolina; just caught the ball at the 27 and ran 30 yards back and forth before getting tackled at the 26.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Also, he’s a huge dickhead.
Which makes it even easier to tell he’s from U*NC.

blaxabbath

Oh wow! So are we not buying RAMMIT this year. Just beating up a weak conference and an easy schedule?

I read somewhere (maybe even here) that in his efforts to undo everything Obama accomplished, the eight turkeys pardoned by Obama have been executed. It wouldn’t surprise me.

It’s funny that we talk about Neilson ratings like they matter anymore. Like using the Presidential Fitness Test as a standard for our nation’s health. Private corporations know 10,000 times more about our viewing habits than a sample of a few midwestern households.

I still think Taft was the fattest. But Trump is 4 times as stupid, so it’s a wash.

They say that the best day in a man’s life is when his child is born, his girlfriend says “yes” or some other drivel. Fuck that, the best day in a man’s life (probably a woman’s as well) is when he thinks he finished his last beer only to find one more buried way back in the fridge.
Oh happy day indeed!
