So yeah, I get it, the title is a bit overused in today’s parlance with the bizarre yet hypnotizing Adult Swim “horror-comedy-90’s sitcom” experience bringing the idiom back into style. Combined with the fact that I’d faint if you told me that this headline hadn’t been used by any other football writer before today when referring to Brandin Cooks (seen above with the 11-yard touchdown)… yeah, that saying’s been here before. But how apt! How meta I say! Because that’s exactly how I felt about last night’s prime time rematch of last year’s Super Bowl (did you know? You’d think they would mention that at least once last night!) that 95% of the Northeast tuned out of in the third quarter. There was some horror, some comedy, and of course Bill Belichek carries the whole 90’s sitcom vibe all by himself… but ultimately, it seemed to be a game that’d we’d all seen before and we were all the worse for it. And sure, while it might have been the Falcon’s gameplan all along, to give the Patriots a 23-point lead only to start a miraculous comeback of their own… problem was, the comeback never came and the Falcons looked about as good in the first three quarters yesterday as they did in the last quarter in the aforementioned Super Bowl. But there was fog! And lots of it! (I can’t find confirmation if it was coming out of Cris Collinsworth’s or Bob Costas’ mouth.) So instead of calling this a Super Bowl rematch, maybe we should call it the “Trent Green Bowl”? Kind of an “NFL’s concept” of what it’s like travelling through Trent Green’s head. You know, minus the purple bears and robot unicorns…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Have you looked back at your team and been a flop with picks? Have you been this way since 1996? While we may not be at 34th and Vine, it’s certainly time for a drink of FA Potion Number 9. Note: For those of you out east being impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we hope that […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
For years, the thing about fantasy football that annoyed me the most was the Running Back by Committee. Belichick and Shanahan were the bane of my existence, and it always seemed like the RB I had was the one who got less carries or who got their TD vultured. I have since given up on […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Waiver Wire can be a fickle beast. Surprising Week 1 performers like Alfred Morris, Andrew Hawkins and Dennis Pitta followed up with solid Week 2 stat lines, while other “Must-Adds” like Mark Sanchez and Kevin Ogletree were apparently spending their Sundays getting ready for the premiere of Boardwalk Empire. And while I don’t blame […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

So it feels weird doing this post seeing as there’s really nothing to get excited about but I felt it would be wrong of me to stop at the top 40 for wide receivers. Consider this post my commitment to you and the inability to stop typing once I get going. So, before we move […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s an age-old question: what came first the chicken or the egg? That timeless question got me thinking about how many fines are now coming down from Goodell’s fortress for anything and everything, and wondering if it’s just a reflection on the current exposition of media immediacy, be it Sportscenter, the internet, social media, or […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello all. Hopefully you’re one of the few, the proud, the fantasy healthy. Every week seems to bring more decimation to our rosters. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who is snakebitten. In one league I have Santana Moss, Tim Hightower, Peyton Hillis, Beanie Wells, and Felix Jones all on the same team. Needless […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes an insignificant event can have a monumental impact. Say it’s summer, 2010. You’re walking down the street one evening with your girlfriend, on your way to dinner. You’ve been dating for almost a year, so it’s pretty serious, but not quite that serious, because there ain’t no ring on that finger. You see a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Football Sunday’s are not the most conducive of learning environments. With pizza, beer, nagging spouses, and unwarranted heckling all acting as distracters, it’s a wonder we’re able to retain anything. Thankfully osmosis still works even when your brain is soaked in Budweiser. Here’s what I learned from Week 1… –Rashard Mendenhall owners need to buy […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
