Super Sunday

Are you ready for some football?

Lots of home underdogs today. (SG tells me so). Could be a weird weekend.

We have a potential for a four-way tie for the last two NL playoff spots. That's what I'm rooting for. I want to see the one-game playoffs drag on as long as possible so the Cubs can get rest.

And in case you missed yesterday, half of the top 10 lost. Oklahoma, Florida, West Virgina, Texas, Rutgers. And yes, Notre Dame still sucks.

For the Teminator:

ProFootballTalk.com reports: "We're told that the availability of Eagles running back Brian Westbrook won't be known until at or close to game time [Sunday night]. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Westbrook can barely move without experiencing abdominal pain. He is pressing hard to play, but coach Andy Reid is reluctant to let him." As we mentioned earlier, Eagles beat writer Ray Parrillo also told us "it was tricky kind of injury" and didn't seem confident about it. This is tough but we think you gotta sit Westbrook if you have a viable, healthy option that could get 15 touches.

blue said...

fuck westbrook

blue said...

and just in case you missed it....

Florida lost....ahahahahahaha

Nails said...

Met(S) are already shitting the bed in the first....down 0-4

El Padrino said...

Nails said...

Nails said...

JFreak said...

Gay Fox.

I didn't need to see Tatum Bell's butt.

Nails said...

EP - watched the 2nd round when Pavlick gets knocked down then the 7th.

Nails said...

Dallas is not lookin good.....my suicide pick.

Nails said...

and on que....STL misses a chipshot FG....niiiiiice

JFreak said...

CBS is so horrible.

Their national game isn't even in HD.

kodiac said...

I love AP; that 55 yd run was sick

Tyler said...

Pavlick/Taylor fight WAS hook da hook. Crazy shit.

Tyler said...

So I should play LJ instead of Westbrook? I've been sitting LJ because he's been sucking. This week they're playing SD and apparently he's hurt.

JFreak said...

Brian Billick is a moron.

tem said...

i am playing earnest graham instead of westbrook. (unless john clayton or someone tells me that westbrook is definitely playing)

so, i would also play LJ over westbrook.

Tyler said...

Ronnie Brown with a TD run. Looks like he's finally starting to be consistent.

Tyler said...

I put LJ in. I still don't trust him though.

Tyler said...

Wow, Culpepper looked horrible on that play/run.

Tyler said...

Dante Hall is still alive apparently. I did not know this.

Tyler said...

Ronnie Brown with a nice 60 yard run.

kodiac said...

WI up to #5 in the polls. I love the Badgers, but they are the most overrated team in the country

El Padrino said...

FUUUUUUUUUUCKKCKcccccccccfrshdfgdf

El Padrino said...

reyes sucks a dick

kodiac said...

Green Bay's punter runs better than their RBs

Nails said...

you gotta fire Willie right?

one of the most spectacular choke jobs in the sports history.

Nails said...

Griese with a pick 6.....

put Rex back in (NS)

Nails said...

aahahahahahah Devin Hester then bails him out.

wow, that kid is sick.

Nails said...

22/37 180 TD/3 INTs


Greeseball.

kodiac said...

faaaak; if it's a really close call on whether there was a fumble or incomplete pass, the refs should always rule it a fumble, so it can be challenged. It drives me crazy that you can't challenge a fumble when the pass is ruled incomplete.

Nails said...

Quesssstion:

I'm in a 1st year $$$ Dynasty League.

In the process of adding a player, a team dropped the wrong player.

They picked up someone and dropped the Panther Def.

The guy emailed the commish within 30 minutes of the transaction, saying he made a mistake and wanted to release the Cincy Def.

The commish obliged the guy and made the switch.

I agree with the spirit of this decision but at what point do you say "tough shit" and make him accountable for his mistake?

This is a money league. And I'm wondering about the precedent this sets.

Thoughts?

kodiac said...

if it's a money league, I say tough shit, you fuck up, you pay the price; it's not even a close call.

kodiac said...

unfuckingbelievable
-the Vikes just got back in the game

kodiac said...

yeah, that didn't last long; not surprising

Nails said...

how'd you do it TP?

Bare hands?

Poison?

Kick?

Nails said...

Rev is about to strike with great Vengeance.

JFreak said...

Javon Walker is inactive.

That doesn't bode well for Denver.

kodiac said...

Hey, the Nats/Phills game isn't over yet

JFreak said...

Detroit has scored 34 points in the 4th quarter.

Nails said...

It's official now.

Prepare for Hurricane Rev.

Nails said...

Jimmy Rollins called it.

(S)hea's response? silence.

The Rev said...

WHY NOT US

The Rev said...

Nails said...

LOV weather prediction:

Hurricane Rev warning, loud, sustained shit talking.

Nails said...

the Cards stadium sounds like a Stillers home game.

Nails said...

oh shit, rev's got a 10 scroller in the works.

Rev you want to have tomorrow's post?

JFreak said...

I'm happy for Rev.

Sad for TP's dog.

The Rev said...

Nah. I don't have that much to say.

My team said it for me!

The Rev said...

Freak...

see you in the playoffs, my man!

It's gonna be fun!

Nails said...

damn, you stay classy Rev.

The Rev said...

Jesus, I still have a whole Eagles game to watch tonight.

Pray for me!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Zeke, Re: Taylor's elbows last night

I was hollering about them all through the fight.

And why wassn't Pavlik letting the leather fly when he would have taylor in the corner? JT would throw 2 shots and be off the ropes.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Fuck the Cubs

blue said...

milwaukee is doing their part....c'mon rockies

Nails said...

I watched the fight again this morning.

I've got a man crush on Pavlick now.

The Rev said...

I'll see you guys later. Gotta do some grillin for a family barbecue.

Then I'll be placing my order later for my new hat.

The one that has the Phillies logo on it, and says "Division Champions" on it!

kodiac said...

Nah. I don't have that much to say.

My team said it for me!

It was more the Mets saying it for you

kodiac said...

But congrats on beating the Nats to seal the deal

kodiac said...

and Congrats to the Cubs as well; so what if they wouldn't have made the playoffs in any other division. Dumb luck is irrelevant at this point. A new season is about to begin

blue said...

kod with the back-handed compliments...very well played sir

blue said...

kod-

Univ. of Minn. uniforms are the ugliest thing on this planet

blue said...

i didn't think it could get uglier than the UofO ducks...I was wrong

Nails said...

I can't wait to hear the official Met(S) fans response.


(NS)

Nails said...

I wonder if keef won his bet on "white"

Nails said...

listening to Dan Dierdork call a game makes football less enoyable.

kodiac said...

kod-

Univ. of Minn. uniforms are the ugliest thing on this planet

-there is absolutely no way to argue against that. I was going to mention that this morning, but I wasn't sure if anyone watched the game (with the other 2 games that night being so good, and our game being so boring)

kodiac said...

but we usually don't wear yellow on yellow. It reminds of a time in high school when I was playing the #1 ranked player in the state. I wore a kilt with a neon yellow shirt. I think Minni used the same strategy
*I lost in the third set, and outfit probably helped (at least a little); however, shananagins like that won't work against a Big-10 powerhouse

blue said...

rockies will see the padres tomorrow.....

shit yeah

kodiac said...

go Rockies!

Norv Turner Upset Alert:

KC 16

SD 16

End 3.

Nails said...

UPSET ALERT.

KC 23

SD 16

Tyler said...

If I was the owner of the Chargers, I'd walk down to the sidelines and fire Norv Turner right now. I wouldn't even wait until the end of the game. You can't even beat KC?

Nails said...

this will wreck suicide pools everywhere.

Nails said...

Upset Alert II:

AZ : 14

Pitt : 7

6 left in the 4th and AZ in the redzone.

Nails said...

it looks like David Carr still has it.

Nails said...

21-7 AZ.

Nails said...

KC with 30?

wow.

WOW.

Nails said...

Norvelous!

Tyler said...

Vincent Jackson is useless.

Tyler said...

Rivers hit him right in the hands, deep for a touchdown and he dropped it.

Tyler said...

WTF Rivers? You had LT in the flat.

Tyler said...

Fourth and goal.

Tyler said...

Incomplete. Game over.

Tyler said...

Fire Norv Turner now!

Nails said...

21-14 AZ

1:40ish left

Nails said...

SUPER CHARGER(S)

Nails said...

only 3 left in the suicide pool

blue said...

I took fucking Houston this week...what was I thinking

Tyler said...

Steelers have to go 91 yards.

blue said...

huh?

Nails said...

you've got to fire Norv right?

19 secs for Pitt

Nails said...

INT.

over.

Tyler said...

Big Ben threw an INT. Game over. Upset #2 is complete.

blue said...

oh, i didn't realize i hadn't caught up on my DVR...i was confused how you guys knew all about what was going to happen in the future of the AZ/Pitt game

Nails said...

EP had good NFL picks.

blue said...

Pittsburgh is overrated

Tyler said...

I would fire that clown, but I can see why they would wait until the end of the season or until the Chargers are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs (which should be in about two weeks).

Nails said...

I started Crayton in my dynasty league.....awesome.

blue said...

the afc west is up for grabs...all 4 teams suck.

blue said...

favre was more excited about breaking the record than winning the game...yeah he came back for the "love of the game"

prick

Tyler said...

Wow. NBC's show is turning into a train-wreck.

JFreak said...

Peyton's last 5 games against Denver:

15 passing TDs, 1 INT

That's pretty good.

Nails said...

No major league team had owned a lead of seven games or more with 17 to play and failed to finish in first place. New York, which had that margin on Sept. 12, matched the largest lead blown in September. The 1934 New York Giants (Sept. 6) and 1938 Pittsburgh Pirates (Sept. 1) and also led by seven games in the final month only to drop into a fatal tailspin.

JFreak said...

"No major league team had owned a lead of seven games or more with 17 to play and failed to finish in first place."

Ouch.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Peyton's last 5 games against Denver:

Yeah, but the Broncos are built to beat the Colts. Or at least I think someone told me that once.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Zeke, can a brother get a FNFL update?

Nails said...

whats your team name?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Zeke and Keef,

please don't let the Weasel win the suicide pool.

(ns)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Barry Badrinath

Nails said...

Barry B : 99

Bad Newz : 48

Bad Newz still with Eli, Westbrook and Ward.

Barry B all played out.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Thanks

I should be able to hold that lead.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

We need one more(or 3) for Fantasy Hoops.

Reverend?

Beth?

Lurkers?

Dub Sizzle?

Wilks, you out there?

Bueller?

Anybody?

JFreak said...

Do you have the info?

JFreak said...

Westbrook's out.

Nails said...

damn, even NBC is clowing NYC.

This sucks.

Nails said...

just re-watched the fight....what a fight.

and the Pavlik wearing the Buffalo Wild Wings hat afterwards made the entire thing an A+++

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I wish I had DVR.

Keith The S said...

Sweet, Westbrook isn't playing. I'm glad I wasn't home to switch him out.

Keith The S said...

But I do have tix to game 1 of the Dbags/Cubs on Wednesday. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Keith The S said...

And I went to put $100 on white and for some reason, Luxor roulette doesn't have white.

Keith The S said...

But I did play about 6 straight hours of craps.
I ♥ craps

Keith The S said...

"Zeke and Keef,

please don't let the Weasel win the suicide pool."

I shall do my best

Keith The S said...

deke
You're still ahead 99.75 - 67.40

Keith The S said...

And Vincent Jackson sucks my cockandballz.

Keith The S said...

It's the rarely seen return from Vegas with only 4 hours of sleep this weekend double natty.

Keith The S said...

Let's go Mets???

Keith The S said...

Meet the Mets, meet the Mets,
Step right up and greet the Mets.
Bring your kiddies, bring your wife,
Guaranteed to have the time of your life.
Because the Mets are really sockin' the ball,
Knockin' those home runs over the wall.
East side, West side, everybody's coming down,
To meet the M-E-T-S Mets, of New York town.
Oh, the butcher and the baker and the people on the streets,
Where did they go? To MEET THE METS!
Oh, they’re hollerin’ and cheerin’ and they’re jumpin’ in their seats,
Where did they go? To MEET THE METS!
All the fans are true to the orange and blue,
So hurry up and come on down -
‘cause we’ve got ourselves a ball club,
The Mets of New York town!
Give ‘em a yell! Give ‘em a hand!
And let ‘em know you're rootin’ in the stands!
Come on and...
Meet the Mets, meet the Mets,
Step right up and greet the Mets.
Bring your kiddies, bring your wife,
Guaranteed to have the time of your life.
Because the Mets are really sockin' the ball,
Knockin' those home runs over the wall.
East side, West side, everybody's coming down,
To meet the M-E-T-S Mets,
Of New York town,
Of New York town.

Keith The S said...

BTW...I put $25 on the Angels to win the WS. Odds were +1200

Keith The S said...

I'm going to keep riding this zorse til the cows come home.

Keith The S said...

I think the Pats beat Cincy by 30 tomorrow night.

Keith The S said...

OK I'm bored.

Keith The S said...

I hate Marc Bulger too. Last week he got me -1 pts in my $$ league. At least this week he got me +1 pt.

JFreak said...

Gus Frerotte played.

St. Louis is bad.

Keith The S said...

That will teach me to not go out of town on the weekend during FFB season.

Nails said...

who was the favorite for the WS?

Nails said...

is there a min bet at craps?

Keith The S said...

Cubs were +350 which is weird. Boston & NYY were the favorites on the sheet I was looking at.

Keith The S said...

I was playing at a $10 craps table, which is the lowest they have.

Nails said...

Let's hope the Iggles adopt the "Why Not Us?" rallying cry this season.


(esssss)

blue said...

my dad scored tix for me for tomorrow night's one game playoff....

sounds fun

The Rev said...

The Eagles are losing ugly...

and I don't care.

Keith The S said...

I saw about 5 people in Vegas this weekend wearing Fighting Illini jerseys. Last year nobody knew they had a football team.

Keith The S said...

I told one of them that their mascot offends me.

(ns)

Keith The S said...

I guess all the Bears fans are putting their Grossman jerseys away and getting out their Chief Illiniwek jerseys.
