This will be the last edition of this column for the season, as the prophecy is ended and I have no interest in repeating last season. Stupid Doug Marrone.
Our beloved Jaguras, despite the even week, had the P*ts beat. They were clearly the better side, and had a fantastic gameplan that BORT was executing flawlessly. But they took their foot off the gas before halftime, then learned absolutely nothing from the experience of losing most of their 14-3 lead. Up 20-10 near midfield, 12 minutes to play, 4th and a VERY short 1…JAX cowardly punted, and the game would never be the same. When you have the chance for a kill shot, especially on the road – you fucking take it. Jacksonville elected to play it safe, and a few soft/dumb penalties later, they had lost. They shouldn’t feel good for getting this close, they should be fucking embarrassed, and ashamed for letting America down. Fucking motherfuckers.
Minnesota, on the other hand, came out shit hot. Like ATL, MIN came into Philly a road favourite. Unlike the Falcons, the Vikes are actually a good team deserving of such respect. But, Case Keenum made a SUPER ill-advised third down pass that got taken back for 6, then everything went to merde. Credit the Iggles for hanging together and getting out of the NFC bracket, but they have pretty much no chance in the Superb Owl. So I will be damned if I’m watching it.
Sorry this isn’t more comprehensive and insightful. I had a super shitty week at work, and this weekend did nothing for any portion of my brain/soul. There is only so much bullshit one has the capacity to absorb. Meh.
