It was a fairly good run, wasn’t it? “The Curse of Thursday Night Football” that had descended last year had lost its way for most of 2018. Well, it’s back and it’s taking no prisoners tonight. So shutter your windows, bar the doors and maybe explore other entertainment options. There’s the NHL (It’s the Penguins vs. the Leafs, co-starring a bathtub full of announcer’s saliva!), the NBA (Lebron, he’s a Laker!) and the MLB (Will the Sawkz close out?). NCAA Football (A bunch of states play each other with Stanford thrown in) Hmmm. Somehow I think I’ll end up watching the travesty unfold in Arizona. TO THE GAME!
These squadoos each have no fear that the phrase ‘playoff contention’ will be linked with them in a serious way this season. It’s full ahead at all possible speed on the rails of mediocrity for these two. There’s a few fellas that might not around for the full ride though. Internet noise says that Arizona OC Mike McCoy (who, in his long and glorious career has never had a top 15 rushing attack, ever) is a distant memory by tomorrow afternoon. Not to be outdone, the buzz surrounding Denver insists that Vance Joseph is walking a tightrope and will be soon taking a fall. Surprisingly, the Cards signing of Kendall Wright-the goal of which was to shore up a very poor passing game-is all for naught just two weeks into his reign. He gone. This is the sort of fallout that occurs when teams have but 3 wins in a combined 12 tries.
Do your best.
