Presenting Your NFL Comments Forum

You are looking live...at a quiet G:TB landscape. Funny how slow it gets at 4:45 AM. I guess nobody else is pacifying a 15 lb. ball of fury at this hour, unless the Z-Man is drunkenly trying to bed a possum. Again.

We have a mixed slate of games today, but with seemingly all of the AFC in the hunt for a wild card berth, it should be interesting. Games that matter include:

New Orleans @ Atlanta
Denver @ Indianapolis
Cincinnati @ Minnesota
San Diego @ Dallas
Philadelphia @ NY Giants.

Enjoy the games.

What I didn't notice the first time I watched Ingram's acceptance speech was Saban's reaction. I don't know what the best word is for the opposite of emotional, but that was good old sincere Nick.

Mark said...

I noticed that a bit too. He did manage to plant one of Ingram's mom though.

And TR, what has Rob told you about Sunday posts?

TR said...

Did I "Dave" your imminent post? Are you extra salty this morning because Jesus H. Tebow finished 5th and Bama broke its Heisman cherry?

Shouldn't we keep these behind-the-scenes squabbles for the editorial meetings on Tuesday?

rob said...

tr gets the little-used pre-dawn screaming kid exemption - channeling paternal frustration into gtb content is acceptable, even on sundays.

TJ said...

Perhaps this was mentioned last night while I was Stumbling, but I am watching Mark Ingram on the CBS pregame show and I am really impressed with this kid. Humble, friendly, gracious. I thought Suh should win the Heisman, but I am very happy for this kid Ingram.

TJ said...

Oh yeah, Tuesday's editorial meeting is gonna be a doozy - I'm bringing in a guest speaker. Dick Butkus.

Mark said...

No TR. I was just "joking" with you. I realize you're bitter because you were up with a screaming kid but ease back a little on the anger. It's not a good look.

And you can't really think I expected (or even wanted) Tebow to win the Heisman, can you? If I had a vote, Ingram would've gotten it.

Mark said...

Tonight's episode of Cold Case is being billed as "featuring the music of Bob Seger".

Well then, I'm in.

Mark said...

This Bucs-Jets game is terrible. Not as terrible as Josh Freeman has been, but still very painful to watch.

Mark said...

I just openly rooted for Thomas Jones to score a TD against the Bucs. Fantasy Football makes me feel dirty.

Geoff said...

The Redskins have not won a road game in almost 400 days. That streak is only in mild jeopardy today.

Geoff said...

I've been left at home alone with the twins for only the second time ever. The first resulted in a lot of crying, predominantly by me.

Geoff said...

Redskins playing like team who would take a win but doesn't necessarily feel like working for it.

TJ said...

Brandon Marshall caught 20 passes today?

TJ said...

You'd think at some point LaRon Landy would get a little sick of being abused and giving up big plays week after week. You would think.

Geoff said...

On the other hand, those dances he does after hitting people are pretty important to the team.

TJ said...

And you can thank dumbass Fred Davis and his dance for the impending Raiders TD.

Geoff said...

There's a lot to celebrate when you're 3-9.

rob said...

gordon gano is a renaissance man - singing, kicking, celebrating. happy to have him.

TJ said...

Fred, stay calm this time pal...

TJ said...

Rob, he also makes tackles/gets run over.

Geoff said...

If Landry doesn't get benched at the half then something is wrong.

TJ said...

If Al Davis were still alive I'm pretty sure hed say the officials/league are conspiring against his club.

TJ said...

I would love some JaMarcus time in the second half.

Geoff said...

The Raiders are really getting what ever the opposite of "the benefit of the doubt" is from the zebras.

TJ said...

Hahahahaha it is JaMarcus time as I hoped...

Geoff said...

Losing to Jamarcus would be the cherry on top to this Redskins season.

TJ said...

Um, was JaMarcus Russell just yawning as he walked to the sideline after calling a timeout because he's a moron and doesn't know the play?

TJ said...

Cowboys showing a little sack finally.

Geoff said...

Holy fuck Zorn, its a field goal attempt. Settle down,

TJ said...

JaMarcus makes Drew Bledsoe look like Steve Young.

TJ said...

Is Zorn talking to a Time Life operator on his headset? I'm sure the Sherms don't talk to him.

rob said...

the redskins look competent as fuck right now. thank you, jamarcus.

mayhugh said...

I really didn't expect to see all those sacks (ngs). What a pleasant surprise.

Mark said...

Quite a swing of emotions for Hakeem Nicks in the last 3 minutes.

Also, Cincy-Xavier is bringing it, per usual.

rob said...

mark's not kidding about xavier/cincy - headed to double overtime

Mark said...

Double OT now in the Skyline Chili Classic.

Shlara said...

Did you guys already talk about The Jersey Shore on MTV?

Sorry if I'm repeating anything...but this show is phenomenal. The hair, the clothes, the language, the "culture"...it is riveting.

zoltan said...

The Situation is the greatest reality TV personality ever.

zoltan said...

And there's a ton of quality names on this year's Football HOF ballot.

rob said...

giants planning to defend the eagles at all this evening?

zoltan said...

I really regret trading Desean Jackson for Julius Jones after week 2. Especially because I will lose this week's playoff game to the guy I traded with.
