Honestly, after watching the games this weekend, I really wanted to do the Chargers or the Seahawks. But the Dirt Clippers did themselves with the move to LA, and they both deserve their pain & are all-but-dead to this site, so I don’t even want to cover their misery. The Seahawks seemed like they’d be an easy cover, but I already did them this season, and the majority of tweets on their site were simply versions of this

and this


But then the Steelers game happened,

and Twitter did not disappoint

And there’s always that one person who just needs to cross that line…

And I figured, despite the Steelers 11-3 record and my adherence to covering teams far above or below .500, I had a pretty easy topic for the week.

But then, there was the evening game…

So, I settled on the Raiders, after they did themselves in Sunday night versus the Cowboys.


We all know what happened, but let’s enjoy it again

Because he made the error of owning it accepted responsibility right after the game.

And some fans were appreciative of the effort

But others…

Balls?

Which just led Carr to call out the h8rz & remind people of faith to keep theirs

Which, happily, was more echo chamber

than asshole

In what I was able to divine as something akin to a miracle, Raiders Fan didn’t seem Philly Fan enough to go onto a player’s page and drop bombs on their effort. It was probably because they respected the effort.

That got saved for the team’s social media.

Twitter, as you can imagine, wasn’t very happy,

But most of the bile & venom were reserved for the coaching staff.

And then Raiders PR had to go fan the flames

With the fans offering plenty of reminders that the teams is more beloved elsewhere than the city they are eventually abandoning.

So, with that, Monday marked the end of a day of intense emotion in the living rooms of certain fanbases.

Gesinjoroj, your wild & varied emotions of Raiders’, and others, social media.

Your “In No Way Was This Prepped Before The Weekend” Christmas Day Open Thread – [DOOR FLIES OPEN]

Counterpoint: this was rational and raiders fans should be livid

I cannot confirm nor deny that I’m Davood Mehmandoost.

I still say, in spite of lost bets and FF contests, I really enjoyed NFL Anarchy Sunday. Every week should be like that.

Without the lost bets and FF contests tho.

His “eyebrows” are the works Looks Are Deceiving.

I am quite confident in my judging in this case.

Worry not, I feel certain ample vodka and heroin were involved.

I think you mean krokodil and fentanyl.

The AFC West has been straight up….

Weird!

KC leading at 8-6 and they’re about the biggest underachiever in the league this year (sans OAK). Everyone is decent at home but struggling on the road (DEN especially but who actually thought they’d do anything with that QB selection this year?). I mean, KC could win out to go 10-6, which is an acceptable record for a playoff team but still….

Either way, it looks like the AFC West champ will be this year’s example of “why does this team get to host a playoff game against a superior wild card selection?”

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Yeah, but it’s the AFC. Hard to make an argument that any of the wild card teams are particularly good considering the Raiders are STILL in the running at 6-8.

is it just me or does Carr look like he’s wearing eyeliner. It makes me think that he’s all goth.

ballsofsteelandfury

Yes! I’ve said that since day one! And then the Jesus/God stuff gets in the way of the Cure fanboy fiction.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Sigh.
