Your “Yeah, I’ll Have a Second Helping” Sunday Afternoon Football Open Thread

Food and football go together like water off a duck’s back, right? Let’s go back, Jack and do it again.

Chargers/Broncos:

When I was but a wee lad me parents broke up and the mother raised two of us on a bank teller’s salary and it didn’t go well. So this item is my favourite sammich as a kid. Take white bread, margarine, olive loaf with cheese bits, mustard and American cheese and assemble. So horrible.

Raiders/Chiefs:

A growing boy needs fuel (read: carbs) and that’s what I got from Momma’s Pasta Speciale! It was a generous helping of spaghetti warmed in tomato sauce with a dollop of Cheez Whiz on top. I was reminded of starving children in Africa or China more than once.

Niners/Rams:

Snack Time! That was medium cheddar cheese, bacon-flavoured crackers and sweet yum-yum pickles. This habit came to an end one time after I barfed the whole conglomeration back up and couldn’t get the taste out me mouth for 48 hours. Gah.

Bears/Vikes:

Mies van der Rohe famously said, “Less is more” and I’ve no doubt that his philosophical musing regarding architecture informed my own special recipe. White bread (two please!) toasted with butter and ketchup. That’s it. Mmmm, filling!

Bengals/Steelers:

/cut to post-university days when I couldn’t find a job

Fried potatoes with salt and pepper. That was supper too many times to count.

Cards/Seahawks:

/still jobless

Spaghetti with mixed condiment sauce. Have you tried relish and mustard on pasta? Don’t.

Eagles/Potato Skins:

/skip forward to trying to drop my body fat % to less than 10

Canned tuna, onion, kidney beans and vinegar. I eventually got to where I wanted but I don’t think I did it properly. But young-ish bodies bounce back so quickly, you see.

Browns/Ravens:

The summer of ’85 I was working like a dog for the daddy and also putting in about 2-3 hours of basketball (in hopes of making my university team-dream crushed, btw) and a girlfriend. About 80% of my diet was eggs, spoonfuls of peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. Poor choices have consequences and in mid-August I fainted in the middle of a mall, cracked some teeth and got 13 stitches in my chin.

Don’t do what Donny Don’t does.

I’m in pajamas and drinking vodka with the in laws. It’s officially New Years time.

I had $30 on #ThePauls to come back and win at +430, lodged solely for jinx purposes. Y’all is welcome.

Mayfield has a bright future. The end was bitter sweet, but the kid is a baller.

Lads, keep the gloating to a minimum, there’s still time for the Dolts and Tits to tie and screw ALL OF US

King Hippo

I like to think that once things got hopeless in OT, someone would take an intentional safety.

Yeah, Vrabel most definitely will rather lose and fuck over the Yinzers than tie and see them happy!

Sharkbait

Yes. We want a tie

Common misunderstanding, we (as in pretty much all of humanity outside Pittsburgh) want to tie the team up and toss them into the Ohio. Except Villanueva, he cool 😀

Why pollute the river any more that it already is?

Petronel

These two QBs are going to be fun to watch for years if all goes well for them.

Wasn’t Koetter the HC bc of the way he was gonna develop Rapey J?

Guess TB is drafting a QB?

Fronkenshteen

Good on Lamar there for patting Baker Mayfield’s helmet after that INT. I don’t know another thing about the guy, but that was pure class.

Redshirt

YES! Oh, Pittsburgh tears! So delicious!

Now Clots and Boobies needs to tie!

Sad for the Browns

I want Yinzer tears, show them to me!

Steve Wilks won three NFL games in four months. Two of those wins were over SF right after they lost Garapolo.

Jackson talking to Mayfield as he walks off.

Smart move, Harbaugh. Screw yourselves out of 10 seconds for the comeback.

BLEERGH is making up for years of bad calls against Cleveland.

Baltimore needs to burn.

No fucking way. Nantz shilling for Yinzers, naturally. SUCH A COMPANY MAN.

You let the first catch “stand” that has to “stand”

Redshirt

Ummmm…..

I honestly don’t know who I’m rooting for here. I hate all three teams in play.

King Hippo

I keep forgetting that God hates football.

King Hippo

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

“The dirt kicked up.”

That means the foot left the grass, Tony.

No catch!

King Hippo

PLEASE GOD

Remember when you used to play defense, Ratbirds.

It took until the last 4 minutes of an NFC North match, but football is good again.

Sharkbait

Bucs not even waiting until black Monday to ax their coach

LOCKETT!!!!

This game is a perfect microcosm of Marvin Lewis’s tenure as Head Coach. Close enough to compete with great teams; not enough to win.

King Hippo

You SUCK Bungles and Ratbirds.

I bet on good things happening. GOOD THINGS HAPPENED!

Hmmm…turns out not having a QB that can throw may bite the Ravens in the ass.

Gratliff

Yeah Right gonna start throwing arsenic in his Sunday Gravy recipes

Big Ben just juked out a CB. Ben Roethlisberger.

Greg fucking Williams is the biggest idiot on the planet. He calls a time out and then throws a challenge flag.

How the fuck is he this stupid and still collects a paycheck?!?!

Redshirt

We’re going to lose, but at least the Bengals are going down fighting with the reserves and special team players. They could’ve rolled over, but not.

Senor Weaselo

Should have Burfict and Beatie fighting, that’s the problem.
