Separation Sunday

Posted: October 20, 2009 in NFL

Let’s not mince words, dear readers.  Right now the New Orleans Saints are the team to beat in the NFC if not the entire league.  The Giants’ D, which is no slouch by the way, got shredded by Drew Brees.  He looked like a video game out there…and let’s not forget the Saints’ D.  They did what they had to do.  Saints smacked around the Gmen 48-27 NO TYPO. 

Right underneath them is the Vikings.  If Brees does not run away with the MVP, a certain Brett Favre could sneak up and take that jawn.  It’s like he’s the gunslinger of old….with the NFL’s best back, AD aka Purple Hayseus, as an insurance policy.  He’s gonna make Sydney Rice a star.  Stank-0 is becoming more and more a fan of Joe Flacco.  He looks like he could fall asleep he’s so nonchalant out there.  You can’t blame the loss on Joe Cool.  He calmly drove them down the field to win with a field goal…meh.   

Look, Stank-0 is not sold that Tom Brady is indeed back.  It was the Titans for goodness sake.  Jimmy Clausen (with his ND O line) could have thrown 6 TDs on them.  The Jets drubbing them a few weeks ago may have awakened a sleeping giant because they hung 59 points on the Titans.  Time to give Vince a chance! 

In our UPSET SPECIAL, the Raiders upended the Iggles 13-9 in the Black Hole.  Brewing QB controversy in the City of Brotherly Love?  The Iggles passed waaaaay too much against a 30th ranked run defense.  It was something like 70/30 pass to run.  They wasted a healthy Brian Westbrook as well. 

Stank-0 already covered the Chieftains victory over the Dead…err…Redskins

The Broncos are certainly the class of the AFC.  Stank-0 did say they ain’t play nobody after the 3-0 start.  Then what did they do?  Beat the Patriots in Denver, then travel to SD and mollywop the Chargahs in their own house.  EDDIE ROYAL STAND UP SON!  He singlehandedly turned the tide of the game.  Uh…after the first run back, stop kickin to him.  Oh and that catch by Scheffler was DISGUSTING! An over-the-shoulder joint and the toe tap to boot.
Less Tomlinson and more Sproles.  Never forget the game marches on.  Why keep forcing the ball to bum receivers when you got an instant mismatch with A Gates?  GO TO HIM!   

The Bengals were bound to come back to Earth and they picked the wrong time to do it….against the Houston Andre Johnsons.  They made Matt Schaub look like a Pro Bowler.  Regroup gentlemen and get er done! 

Oh and a reminder, you might want to skip next Monday’s game: the Iggles vs. the Redskins.  The Iggles will come out angry about the loss to the hapless Raiders and the Redskin Nation is in tailspin. Snoozer! 



Posted: October 20, 2009 in Kansas City Chiefs, NFL, Washington Redskins

The Kansas City Chieftains finally got one in the win column for this season.  The Redskins are the cure for what ails a struggling team.

The score might have looked like the Chiefs put up a TD or two, but they didn’t.  It was all field goals and a safety.

The game was brutal from a spectator’s perspective.

  • Neither team’s offense really got going. 
  • Both defenses significantly outplayed the offenses.  
  • Each offense line was missing some key pieces.  

Honestly, the Chieftains should have won last week.  HELLO YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!  They played to get into overtime.  Big difference.  That was last week.

This week, the Chieftains overcame a Redskins team in their own building.

LJ, you brought your game face today.  Good lookin!  You ran hard today.  
Mr. Bowe, you sir need to learn to block.  On Cassel’s roll out if you had blocked he would have scored a TD.  Also, situational awareness.  You are trying to run out the clock so fall down.  IN BOUNDS.
Cassel was good today.  No flashy numbers.  NO TDs and NO INTs.

D line, we need more pressure (looking at Dorsey and Jackson).  McGraw should be playing more. 

Stank-0 is still up in the air about Coach Haley.  They need an intense guy not a screamer.  Haley loves to holler, scream, and drop F-bombs (if you can read lips you’ll see).  Nothing wrong with F-bombs but he drops at least 4 every game.   

Gentlemen, you aren’t gonna win on talent.  You have to win on heart and hustle.  Let’s get ready for next week!
