Your [checks with Brick] “Mid-Morning, Maybe Early Afternoon, Late Autumn-ish, at the very least” Open Thread Featuring Football

Can we just all agree to disagree and pretend as though it wasn’t important yet silently grumble to ourselves about ‘that guy’? It’s The Passive-Aggressive Way! Let’s wander once more into the britches.

TO THE GAMES!

Jets/Titans:

Tenny had plans to ram the ball right down its opponents throats all year long but then Henry did his very best Trent Richardson and everything went kablooey. Well, at least the signing of rb Lewis saved the running game… What’s that? He’s averaging even less per rush than Henry? Oof! The Titans would be wise to attack the Jets secondary-they’ve given up a total of 441 yards to wr’s the last two game. As of this scribbling Bowles hasn’t stated who his lousy qb is for this tilt.

Chiefs/Raiders:

Nine wins vs. nine losses. The respective records will tell you who gonna be walking away with this by halftime. “But Wait!”, RTD screeches. “These AFC West games are always close because this is still the 80’s and 90’s in my mind!” Oh Rikki, I just wish you would lose that number. As the tale of the game tape piles up, Mr. Mahomes has tossed 4 int’s and been sacked 10 times in the last four games. I can’t help thinking he’ll get well against pre-Vegas though.

Vikes/Pats:

Minny’s run D has tightened up quite a bit in the last few weeks to the point that they are 6th-best on a per rush basis. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they still have to deal with New England’s passing game and the refs. Shutter-downer corner Rhodes is a game-timer but I never feel good about cb’s and wr’s with hammy issues and late decisions. Never seems to work out in the player’s favour.

Niners/Seahawks:

These fellers are the new “Not Ready For Prime-Time Players” as decided by… pretty much everyone. I don’t have the exact number but some typer out there stated that San Fran now has the record for being flexed out of the most games. Easy to believe.

Tell me some lies.

I will always admire Seth McFarlane for having to the clout to get FOX to let him cosplay as the captain of the Enterprise

Also, you can tell he’s a fan. He’s not half assing it. He’s putting forth a genuine effort with the show.

Doktor Zymm

How have I never stuck with Red Zone long enough to watch the ‘every TD’ montage before? This is awesome! Phillip Lindsay is really good, and not just cause he’s on my shitty fantasy team, I hope he hasn’t done/doesn’t do anything awful!

Doktor Zymm

And yes, I officially weirdly like the Dolphins argyle end zone.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Well I drank too much lol

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

I was drunk enough today to watch The Orville 😱

Now he’s gonna go crash for two days.

Six days. He goes into a medically induced coma.

Doktor Zymm

I believe it. His face should have changed more over the past few years.

The fact that your cat can even write is pretty awesome.

Pics or it didn’t happen

McCarthy is all well and good, but I can’t wait until Pete Carroll is fired. Out of a cannon into the Sun.

Doktor Zymm

There should be a losing equivalent of the victory formation. Call it a ‘sorry we suck and you watched this game’ formation

Spur

it’s going to be awesome next year when the Packers blow again. Da Bears and Viks are not away and that Green Bay roster is fart in a bottle.

Who will Rodgers and his fans blame next?

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Listening to this Fox crew defending McCarthy is hilarious. Just because some dumbass team held on to him forever doesn’t mean he was good you fucking dolts

Doktor Zymm

If actual Bears were as shitty at putting stuff away as the Chicago Bears, they would all die every time it snowed in March

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

lol Packers lol McCarthy

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

I should look up how many coaches the Bears have had since McCarthy was hired. It’s at least four

Spur

i think one was from Canada! Canada!

Col. Duke LaCross

Surprisingly, just the four. Lovie, Trestman, Fox and Coach Nagy.

Doktor Zymm

Oh THAT’S how the Giants won

‘Boat leaning forward on the final play of the game (instead of kneeling) just so he can keep his thousand yards. 🙂

Doktor Zymm

I feel weirdly proud about seeing one of the two Raiders victories on the season

Doktor Zymm

Can we change the name of the 49rs to some shittier year/number? Maybe the 29rs? Like when the stock market crash happened?

Redshirt

How about the 33ers or the Bryans?

It’s 1733 right, the year the first Freemason lodge opened?

Redshirt

(buzzer) Sorry, no.

Doktor Zymm

Being a Jets fan must be like how I would be if I actually cared about my team

Senor Weaselo

Senor in the car, listening to the game on the LIE: “This seems like the kind of game the Jets lose 27-25. Probably 27 because there isn’t time probably for the Titans to score a TD and two FGs, two TDS sound more likely.”

Senor in the car, listening to the game because there’s spare time before my gig as David goes into the end zone: “As I was saying.”

This night game….this is going to happen and be a thing we are going to watch. I am not ready.

Col. Duke LaCross

Add alcohol.

Horatio Cornblower

Can’t believe Super Bowl winning coach Mike McCarthy was fired.

I look forward to what Peter King has to say about this.

Neither of the above sentences is true.

Senor Weaselo

As I said, death, taxes, Jets.

Doktor Zymm

When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet and you fucking suck

Col. Duke LaCross

Always be you, Jets.

Watch Marvin Lewis go to Green Bay and get like seven Super Bowls championships in a row.

GOODNIGHT PACKERS

Senor Weaselo

We have a Code Bluebunny!

Doktor Zymm

Wow, Mariota just happened

Doktor Zymm

I will laugh even more when Mike McCarthy ends up coaching in the NFC East. No idea which team. Do you still need to coach for a team?

Doktor Zymm

LOL PACKERS

Doktor Zymm

My eyes hurt. Raiders aren’t fucking helping.

Col. Duke LaCross

The Beav is shitcanned!

Gratliff

Mike McCarthy fired 8 years too late

Sharkbait

Mike McCarthy fired into the sun.

TWBS with a clutch spoiler win in dfo fantasy would be gladly accepted.

Doktor Zymm

Huh, my fantasy team accidentally did a thing

Doktor Zymm

Wait, WTF are they talking about? Who’s Saved by the Bell playing for?
