  1. Hoping the Brown get rid of Manziel and Gordon this off-season. Hell, take Shanahan with them too.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I've got Dallas/Washington & KC/SD. Think I'm gonna stick with the KC game.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Only the Browns could get two 1st round picks three times, use each 1st round pick to select a quarterback, then flub it. I'll never understand what they were thinking with Weeden.

    ReplyDelete
  4. They can probably get a few good draft picks for Gordon. I see Manziel being out of football before his 25th birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  5. They should just keep Connor Shaw.

    ReplyDelete
  6. They are saying Gordon isn't going to get anything but a 5th or worse round pick.

    ReplyDelete
  7. You don't give up on Manziel after 1 season and 1.5 bad games

    ReplyDelete
  8. Got the same games with AZ/SF as the late game on FOX. No America's Game of the Week for me.

    ReplyDelete
  9. You do with his immaturity. The kid will never learn.

    ReplyDelete
  10. No, you don't. That's incredibly shortsighted

    ReplyDelete
  11. I guess you have to take his off the field shenanigans into consideration.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The guy has been late for plenty of meetings this year, parties when he should have his face in the playbook, and is undersized. Not to mention ignoring the Browns' phone calls this week when he was late to treatment.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ultimate Destined For Backup QB Names? I got Spurgeon Wynn, Dan Orlovsky, Cade McKnown, Billy Volek, Cleo Lemon

    ReplyDelete
  14. My late games are SF/AZ and Denver/ Oakland. I'd rather watch Detroit/GB

    ReplyDelete
  15. You deal with that in the offseason. You burned a 1st round pick on him and unless you're getting something good back, there's no reason to just cut him

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm amazed at them being such a mess after starting 6-3.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't see superstar in Manziel. Sorry. I'd rather see the Browns cut their losses now then waste even more time.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That would be a disaster. Cutting him after one season when he was a first round pick and played 1.5 games? I mean...wow.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Trade, not cut. I was just using a phrase.

    ReplyDelete
  20. More important than any of these ganes is me gunning for my third straight BOD fantasy football championship, even without Gronky Baby. YOU WANT SOME, COME GET SOME!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What are you going to get for him?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I got CAR/ATL as the CBS late game; thought there would be infomercials. I'm with you with DET/GB. I have to get Direct TV so this won't be a factor next season.

    ReplyDelete
  23. More important than any of these games is me gunning for my third straight BOD fantasy football championship, even without Gronky Baby. YOU WANT SOME, COME GET SOME!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm sure some team that needs a QB would trade some picks for him.

    ReplyDelete
  25. On this day in 1997, Sting defeated Hollywood Hogan to win the world title at Starrcad.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Why not hang onto him and see what you got. He played like a rookie in 1.5 games on a team that was a sinking ship. Big shocker.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Then do you let him compete for the starting job? What happens if he makes zero improvements in the offseason and is the backup or third stringer next season?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm watching the Dolphins out of a sense of obligation until it gets really awful, at which point I'll switch either to the AFC west game or Redzone.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Well that, and throwing a party that got a bunch of teammates just days after saying he'd take his job more seriously. TGDGI

    ReplyDelete
  30. Billy Joe Tolliver.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, you let him compete for the starting job.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The initial shot in the armor of WCW. They were lucky things were so hot for them that they were able to survive that debacle.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I saw this commercial about domestic abuse where people were just silent.

    I HATE. I REPEAT, I HATE THESE FUCKING THINGS. I HATE ALL COMMERCIALS THAT ARE 'END DOMESTIC ABUSE', 'END RAPE', 'END ANIMAL ABUSE', BECAUSE THEY'RE FUCKING BULLSHIT.

    Do you think a person who beats their child, dog, or wife is gonna see a lame, bullshit commercial or poster where they see people acting like their actions are bad, and go "Oh man, I was gonna go home and beat my kid until he couldn't walk, but not anymore!".

    All this bullshit about "teach men not to rape". It's just that, BULLSHIT.

    You wanna know how to get these pieces of shit to stop? Do you wanna know? There's one very simple word: PAIN. No, I'm sorry, three simple words. SERIOUS. FUCKING. PAIN.

    You wanna be a big man, and beat your wife? Well, guess what, your punishment is now you're beaten within an inch of your life.

    You're a super tough, rockin' guy, and want to slug your child? Or kick a dog? Then guess what, all of your limbs get broken.

    There's no jail time. There is only pain. There is only punishment.

    Then, THEN will they learn. Then will they think about the cause & effect of their actions. When it's raining, and their hip hurts because it was shattered for abusing a family member, or raping someone, they'll think. They'll know. They'll be AFRAID.

    AFRAID. Fear is how you keep people like this inline. FEAR.

    And I can guarantee this, and it's one of the reasons I like to lift and study fighting, if anyone so much as thinks about hurting someone I know, I will teach them until it's attempted murder. And I will teach. And I will teach. So then I can gain an air about me that when these sort of guys see me, or hear about me, never even give a simple thought to stepping out of line, because there will be no commercial for them. There will be no commercial. No commercial.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Been there, done that. FEAR won't make the commercials stop. Good Luck.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My one o' clock game selections:

    Meaningless Pats vs. Bills, nearly meaningless Cowboys/Deadskins and Gayvens/Clowns

    What a lousy slate.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Billy Joe Hobart...I'm pretty sure the Falcons employed both Billy Joe's at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  37. All I want today is for Jay Cutler to complete 8 passes to Matt Forte. He deserves a record.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My meaningless vikings vs bears and chargers Chiefs

    ReplyDelete
  39. He's going to shoot up a school eventually isn't he.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Chargers Chiefs isn't meaningless. Playoff hopes at play.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I got ya I just meant vikings Bears

    ReplyDelete
  42. Trade him to New England. Brady & Belichick would straighten him out.

    ReplyDelete
  43. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 28, 2014 at 11:20 AM

    I really don't want to watch this Browns game.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh okay. Bears game might not be meaningless either. Bye bye Cutler!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You can always turn it to Bills/Pats or Dallas/Washington...Ugh

    ReplyDelete
  46. And the Vikings have been playing well.....so moral victories!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Holy hell, what a psycho.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd be fine with a 38-35-ish Giants loss today, be worth up to an extra 5 spots in the draft and hopefully kick Fewell the fuck out the door

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow what a play by Dez.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Dez Bryant is amazazing.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Eh, I was on board until the "that's why I'm such a tough guy" shtick at the end

    ReplyDelete
  52. The juke was nice, but HOLY SHIT when he turned on the jets to score.

    ReplyDelete
  53. JJ Watt is also amazazing.

    ReplyDelete
  54. that burst of speed was insane. Scorched.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Win and we're in; GOH CHAJAS GOH

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dammit, I have Romo and my opponent has Bryant so we're going to cancel a lot of our productivity out

    ReplyDelete
  57. I threw a few shekels on them today, they better not let me down.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I thought fantasy football ended week 16.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Ravens looking flat as hell the last couple of weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Best part of Sanchez on Eagles? Takes away the "What if the Jets could coach offense?" from his resume....he just sucks

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'll go on record as agreeing that I hate the SPCA tortured animals commercials. Those are just a total bummer and they usually play them on shit like Comedy Central a lot which is weird.

    ReplyDelete
  62. "I couldn't say for certain why I was tested and failed when other guys blatantly got away with smoking pot and using pills, but put it this way; if you were "in" and a top guy, it wouldn't help anyone for them to suspend you. I did see some crazy things as guys tried to avoid the tests. Kid used to come to the back and pretend to pass out, making out like he was hurt so they couldn't test him. I remember Sid once had a squirt bottle filled with someone else's piss, but he got caught. Someone, and I can't remember who it was, even tried using a fake dick!"

    ReplyDelete
  63. DeMarco Murray has the single-season rushing record for the Cowboys.

    ReplyDelete
  64. And another Dez Bryant touchdown. Cowboys on fiyah!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:34 AM

    Why the fuck is Orton even playing in this game.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Why is Brady. Why is any of this happening.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Does Belicheat ever sit his players?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Playoff implications be damned sorry KC/SD I'm switching to Dallas game. Way more exciting.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Watching some Nat Geo. Wasn't interested in football. Switch over to the Skins game. Bryant, TD. Switch back to Nat Geo. Switch back to football, Bryant TD.


    ...

    ReplyDelete
  70. And with that, Dez has the single-season touchdown record.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:35 AM

    Yeah, why is Brady? Or Gronk, who's practically made of glass.

    ReplyDelete
  72. They are going to have to pay him

    ReplyDelete
  73. Overloaded leagues go to 17. They are usually terrible. I've been in a few. So terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:36 AM

    No, not really.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Teams with a bye, usually play their guys week 17 because two weeks off is a bit much.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I believe they will. Not too worried about it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The polls for the groups C-F brackets for the 2nd Round of PTBN's "Greatest Song of the 90's" Tournament have been posted above

    ReplyDelete
  78. Gronk is inactive

    ReplyDelete
  79. Really? That's when I got an erection...er...interested!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Officially cancelled my WWE Network subscription. Was only keeping it to watch the PPVs, and I don't care about RR and everything with Reigns and now Lesnar seems like such a forgone conclusion that I'm not all that interested in Wrestlemania either. You would think WWE would have some sort of exit survey to find out WHY people are cancelling, but Vince & co. probably don't want to hear the answers.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What round was Odell Beckham drafted? Need to make sure I know before the obligatory "how did so many teams miss on this guy" comment.

    ReplyDelete
  82. The BOD league goes 17. Which sucks cause a lot of star players get sit, so it's kinda a crapshoot, not that it stopped me from winning the league each year.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:38 AM

    True, but I would still yank my starters at halftime regardless of the score. Doubt that will happen though.

    ReplyDelete
  84. 1st rounder. Always looked like a stud.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh, then why did it take so long before he made an impact?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:39 AM

    Oh... I'm not really paying attention to the game.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Getting paid isn't the problem. The problem is Jerry going to over pay him and destroy his cap again.

    ReplyDelete
  88. OF COURSE Chiefs get their first TD by a WR in the last game.

    ReplyDelete
  89. For those taking a pass on the CIN/PIT game tonight, there will be a block of alcohol/drinking themed episodes of the Simpsons on FXX.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Boooooo! I wanted to see history made.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Come on Chargers, look alive.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Me too. Plus I need KC to lose and Charles to score.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Brady might be, or at least the 4th.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Fucking boo to that shit.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:41 AM

    How long will it take you to flood this town with booze again?
    Four minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Better looking Watson: Martin Freeman or Lucy Liu?

    ReplyDelete
  97. LOL TD-less WR streak continues!

    ReplyDelete
  98. And of course I give up on the terrible MIA-NYJ game and immediately miss vintage Jets QB play.

    ReplyDelete
  99. In amazing fashion too!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I hate last days of vacations. Can never really enjoy these days.

    ReplyDelete
  101. How many records will Dallas set today? Is Romo within striking distance of any records?

    ReplyDelete
  102. I don't remember a week 17 this lame and without the intrigue.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:43 AM

    Gotta get the backup some time so you can sucker some team into giving up a good pick for him...

    ReplyDelete
  104. To alcohol! The cause of... and solution to... all of life's problems!

    ReplyDelete
  105. There's lots of intrigue in the AFC

    ReplyDelete
  106. San Diego win and we're in, but I'm biased

    ReplyDelete
  107. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 11:44 AM

    That's like my mantra.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Mills Lane: I'll allow it!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Chargers win, playoff participants are set. Bengals/Steelers for the division, but both are in anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  110. FACKIN BOOSHEET. Come on San Diego!

    ReplyDelete
  111. But the Bolts are losing

    ReplyDelete
  112. Then that might make things interesting

    ReplyDelete
  113. So they failed with House as Lawyer, Dwight looks like a fail as House as Cop....fuckers shouldn't have cancelled House

    ReplyDelete
  114. BRandon Oliver, baby!

    ReplyDelete
  115. It went on too long anyway

    ReplyDelete
  116. Yeah, it only took me 15 years to notice the TNT/Nitro name connection, wanna fight about it?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Once he hooked up with Cuddy, the was the end for me.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Eh, I can't argue, but House was kinda like Flair, even when it's a shell of its former self, still better than what else is on

    ReplyDelete
  119. House was declining in the ratings. Absolutely the right call

    ReplyDelete
  120. My problem with shows like House and Monk is that if the quirky guy with people issues is right in every episode, then at some point it might do you better to listen to the guy instead of pretending they don't know what they're talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Again, not arguing it, but then they should take the hint continually shoving the same archetype character into shows

    ReplyDelete
  122. Might as well roll the dice, since it was Kinnear's first TV role and people like Rainn Wilson.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Plus, it's a midseason filler anyway, so it's not like they have big hopes for it, they're just plugging holes in the schedule.

    ReplyDelete
  124. ...Wow, that does make sense.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I got myself a Christmas present...

    ReplyDelete
  126. Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooook then.

    ReplyDelete
  127. FOX is so fucked right now that any show that people will remotely give a shit about is a good idea.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Hey, if you can't make money with a comedy set in a children's sick ward, I don't know what can

    ReplyDelete
  129. Tomorrow is my favorite Monday of the year...When all the shitty coaches get the pink slip

    ReplyDelete
  130. Luck just broke a Manning record.

    ReplyDelete
  131. HArbaugh, Rex, Trestman, who else?

    ReplyDelete
  132. Most TD passes thrown to Andy Dwyer?

    ReplyDelete
  133. Mike Smith if the Birds lose.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Even Cowboys have to admit it. Despite their early success people said "Just wait for the same old Cowboys in December"

    Well it's December and the meltdown people were sure of never came.

    Gotta give them credit. They've had a hell of a season and didn't fade down the stretch.

    ReplyDelete
  135. They'll blow it in the playoffs, like clockwork. Hopefully Romo is off holding duties on kicks.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Romo has like 12 touchdowns and no interceptions this month.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Charger fans shouldn't talk shit. Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Fuck, can't get any separation thus far in the BoD FFLoD championship. I'm nervous

    ReplyDelete
  139. Yes I can. Cause it's Romo and the Cowboys.

    ReplyDelete
  140. That's kinda bullshit though. People can't say "They'll meltdown in December!" And then when Dallas doesn't change it to "Oh they'll meltdown in the playoffs so I was right anyways!"

    ReplyDelete
  141. Possibly Lovie, Coughlin

    ReplyDelete
  142. Cowboys v. Lions/Packers is going to be an awesome Saturday night game.

    I don't cheer injuries, but Brady getting knocked out would be really funny

    ReplyDelete
  143. Lovie is a dark horse candidate to go, they were a fucking mess even with two receivers around 1,000 yards.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Yeah, and they're better than the Chargers in every way. Always have been.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Both are said to be coming back

    ReplyDelete
  146. There's no way in hell Tampa should have been that bad this year

    ReplyDelete
  147. There's always a darkhorse or a surprise too

    ReplyDelete
  148. Well, they haven't been in the playoffs for a while because of their December meltdowns, so we've hadn't had to say that. But yeah, Romo's resume in the playoffs shouldn't be any cause for comfort.

    ReplyDelete
  149. It took me several months to realize that disqus meant "discuss" not "discus" like discus hurler

    ReplyDelete
  150. Meh, last time they did fine. They got killed by the Vikes but that team was great

    ReplyDelete
  151. Dallas at Seattle for the NFC Championship. Pittsburgh at New England for the AFC Champions hip.

    ReplyDelete
  152. "last time they did fine"


    "They got killed by the Vikes"


    You and I have different definitions of fine.

    ReplyDelete
  153. As a Vikings fan, that was the greatest game of my lifetime

    ReplyDelete
  154. Have you been watching them since 1996? Because the last seventeen years seem to contradict the "always have been" part.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Stupid throw by Eli but awesome just grabbing one of Beckham's arms is legal today

    ReplyDelete
  156. They beat the Eagles and then got beat by a far superior team.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Wow, never knew that. Always pronounced it 'discus' .


    What a stupid name.

    ReplyDelete
  158. So you non-Steeler fans here believing the darkhorse talk?

    ReplyDelete
  159. I will give them credit though, they went through December without Schrute'ing it. But Jones didn't give him that money to win just in December, so there's still more breath holding if you're a fan of the Jerrys.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Good stand by San Diego, let's get a TD before half

    ReplyDelete
  161. Le'veon Bell and Antonio Brown have been two of the best skill position players this year. Ben's got the skill and the experience to win on the road. Comes down to the defense. I think they can play with anyone in the AFC.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Beat my mom in online monopoly in one move LOL. Dumb computer players.

    ReplyDelete
  163. CC Sabathia had a meltdown at an airport after missing a flight. Hopefully he didn't shred his knee again.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Same results as last season. Go Hawks.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Apparently, airport security had to come and cool down CC after he flipped his shit when he and his family missed a flight to Jamaica.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Yep. The team is finally clicking.

    It's so weird having two hood football teams in the Pacific Northwest.

    ReplyDelete
  167. "The Godwinns in particular didn't care for Tammy's hypocrisy in keeping Chris on a leash while fulfilling her own hedonism, so when an angle arose that called for them to pour a bucket of their trademark pig slop over her head, they used it as an opportunity to exact some revenge. As Dennis Knight, who played hillbilly pig handler Phineas Godwinn recalled, 'I left the bucket in the locker-room and said to no one in particular, 'So, I am slopping Sunny tonight. Don't anybody be touching this bucket...' and sure enough the bucket was full when I got back. She got a mixture of a little bit of everyone that night.'"

    ReplyDelete
  168. Only if he got angry like that when he pitched

    ReplyDelete
  169. Kinda nuts that everyone was freaking out about threats against theaters and now movies just had the biggest post-Xmas weekend ever.

    ReplyDelete
  170. If "Ice, Ice Baby" advances I'm gonna be pissed.

    ReplyDelete
  171. That feeling when you hear the opening riff then realize it's that song and not Under Pressure

    ReplyDelete
  172. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 12:21 PM

    Beat GB, play really well (so far) against NE, get bounced from the playoffs by the fucking Raiders. Bills football in a nutshell.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Such overwhelming sadness knowing you've been robbed of Bowie and Freddie.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Dallas is going to be dangerous come playoff time.

    ReplyDelete
  175. The RRRRRRAIDAS!

    ReplyDelete
  176. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 12:23 PM

    Word to ya' mutha.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Chargers still hanging around but we need fucking TDs.

    ReplyDelete
  178. From the Oakland! Alameda County! Coliseum!

    ReplyDelete
  179. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 28, 2014 at 12:23 PM

    Fuck Chris Berman.

    ReplyDelete
  180. I don't think they can beat the Broncos or Patriots, but they can anyone else in the AFC.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Where the shit overflows literally and the cholos stab/reign supreme

    ReplyDelete
  182. When I think of 90s songs, that is one that I usually think of immediately

    ReplyDelete
  183. But the Broncos/Pats can't attack them where they are the weakest

    ReplyDelete
  184. Jeez, Chris Candido was WHIPPED

    ReplyDelete
  185. Stranger in the AlpsDecember 28, 2014 at 12:28 PM

    For me, the "greatest" song should actually be the "best quality" song, not the most memorable. The two are not mutually exclusive.

    ReplyDelete
  186. If Dallas keeps playing like they are and not make mistakes they might go far. BOOM

    ReplyDelete
