SF I was out of town Thursday night and missed the game. Congrats on not having an 0-fer season. Didn't the Chiefs just beat the Broncos?

Thanks and woohoo, sorta.


I get the distinct impression the Chiefs had a touch of a letdown after beating the Seahawks. STILL, nobody wants to lose to an 0-10 team.

These Raiders never struck me as an 0-fer team. They are not good, quite a far cry from it in fact. But they are also clearly not hapless, nor did the strike me as the type of team that "finds a way to lose." I'd say the current Jets are much more that team. And whereas the past four or five iterations of Raider teams didn't have a single top-100-in-the-NFL talent (don't even start with McFadden; his inclusion on such lists is an embarrassment to all), these Raiders might have two -- Carr and Mack.

I'm really positive about when given the very first "let's drive down and win this thing" opportunity of his career, Derek Carr cashed in. I'm less positive about his immediately afterwards attributing his success and the team's victory to the Almighty.

My thoughts on Alex Smith will probably never change; if you need a six-yard completion and the game is not on the line, I'd rather have Smith than anybody else. Otherwise ... less.

Don't do it, people. Only 14% of that money goes towards quality draft picks.

Yo, A2, Have you watched that 30 for 30 "Brian and the Boz"?
Rhetorical, mostly.

Good stuff. Being a CU fan since I was a kid, I never wanted to understand that dude, nor Shitzer... but gawdam, that was a good program. Like the stuff regarding the Texas - OU border wars especially. Wish CU was more involved in those earlier 80's Big 8 series'.
We still hated both vehemently (and Nebraska), but man, the first forty minutes of that show made me truly jealous.

The second hour, not so much.
Let's focus on the '84 - '85 stuff, shall we?

I missed it when it aired and keep forgetting to try to find it online.

As a 9 year old OU fan, The Boz was like a real life super hero that I got to see in person on Saturdays. I still remember being at the OU/Texas game when the Boz and Spencer Tillman (and two guys I can't remember) were the captains and they all came out holding each others helmets like they were playing red rover. I don't think I could have been more sure of a looming win than if it had been the Avengers going out for that coin toss instead.

When Spencer Tillman played for the Oilers or right after he did when he worked as a sports reporter for the local TV, he came into the Office Depot I worked in. I sold him a fax machine.

Yeah. I can believe that. I'm just glad I WASN'T at the bottle throwing game in Boulder... but I do remember it in the news. I was shocked our fans went that low.

So last week, when you got on the ropes you acted like you were the #6 seed and pulled some pretty obscure shit to get back into the game against the Ravens.

Afterwards, the entire message was, "check your rule book. Check your rule book."

This week, you get caught breaking the rules. And don't give me that, "I didn't know" crap; it doesn't fly. So it's not about the rule book any more?

I'm tired of listening to the Patriot perspective; can't wait until they're as irrelevant as the teams I root for.

I don't know how to respond to this.

Try to rationally explain the ridiculousness of this "cheating scandal" in which no one has been "caught breaking the rules" and the stupid overreaction of media and fans? Try to defend a team I like to root for? Tell you to go fuck yourself? Embrace the dark side and play up the Patriots are awesome and it doesn't matter if we cheat because we win so much Belichick is a god Brady is the best ever fanboi shit?

This is such a stupid story. About such a minor obscure piece of shit measurement nobody gave two fucks about until the Patriots were involved. It is probably best if I just don't respond at all......

No offense Midrats and Patch, but I was prepared to make the Seahawks one of my back up teams to root for, but I'm not sure I can any more. The fight after the interception just felt like a bunch of petulent children throwing a hissy fit when they didn't get their way and I think marred an excellent game.

And what the hell Doug Baldwin, in what world is that "celebration" for a touchdown acceptible, much less doing it in the Super Bowl.

Quote:
Tattoos have special meaning for fans and NFL players alike. Some are symbols that represent a way of life, while others are reminders of past hardships overcome. Then there are tattoos that seem to make no sense at all.

For one person, Katy Perry's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show wasn't just a performance, it was a life-changing event. If you'll recall, the enthusiasm and performance of one Left Shark left America, and the rest of the world, in awe. So much so in fact that a person went out and got a Left Shark tattoo.

Being drafted by the Raiders is always exciting...I mean, look at that smile on Amari Cooper's face.
