Wow, do we have the match up that you don’t want to see.  I mean, sure, maybe OBJ will make some glorious catch.  But, really, no one likes either team.  Just look at this schmuck.

"Public Intoxication" arrest which means he was being a dick

That’s a Jim Spanfeller-level punchable face.

Let’s talk about the Steelers first, though.  I’m still not sure how they corralled in the egos of Antonio Brown and that dude who now plays RB for the Jets.  Whatever his name is.  He doesn’t matter anymore, now that we know that O-line was the real reason that running backs do well in the Steelers system.  Good luck, Jets.

Tomlinson, who comes across like a real jackass in every interview he has ever done, going back to when he was 3 and someone asked him to sing the ABC’s, has done a fantastic job keeping this team on track.  I would like to think that he would be nice to someone in his life.  His wife?  Mom?  The sheep he drags to the bedroom and calls “Baker”?  I don’t know who, but there has to be someone.

At QB, they have some putz who is just a putz.  Middleman Putz might be his name.  That’s how much I care.  He’s serviceable, like a great many QBs you see in this league.  That’s good enough.

The defense on this team is still tough.  Not Patriots tough.  Not Niners tough.  Not Bills tough.  But, definitely not a cake walk.  That’s why they should win this game, and, also, because I like to hate on The Browns.

Now, let’s get to the part that is hard to talk about:  Flaker Mayfield and the Brown turds.

They finally won last week!  Yeah!  3 wins, baby.  They are definitely going all the way.  All the way to another top 10 draft pick, where they will probably draft a QB for when Mayfield becomes a backup on another team and fades into Oblivion.  (Side note:  I’m picking up Oblivion for the XB1 once I’m done playing Skyrim… again.)

But, last week was a fluke when you look at their season as a whole.  OBJ had catches.  Mayfield didn’t get intercepted (I would fact check that, but I don’t really want to).  They stopped the run.  Sort of, anyway, as the Bills should have ran it more, aside from Josh Allen.

This week, the Browns are going to have a hard time stopping the run.  The Steelers aren’t scoring a ton of rushing TDs, but they know how to utilize the run game effectively.  Kitchens doesn’t really garner a lot of surety as a head coach.  He is going to have to play his linebackers in a manner that negates the run.

Since this is a rivalry game, expect a fun game to watch.  Really, either team that loses is a win for us all.

“Fair weather fans are HILARIOUS to me…” – Emily Mayfield, wife of Baker, which means she made that choice voluntarily (that we know of), which should tell you everything you need to know about her

Still curious as to why the Browns are favored.  They are the Browns, after all.  Historical levels of losing that make Detroit fans jealous.

Talk about whatever below.

My feed got badly unsynched. The commentary was about a minute ahead of the video.

I can do without the color commentary from some asshole on Twitter but it has the beginning of the fight.

Looks like Rudolph tried to take Garrett’s helmet off first.

SonOfSpam

Yeah, and at the end of the day (now, I guess) he’s lucky to be alive.

Football is shitty, but fuck it, if it’s going to be brutal and kill its players early, then I don’t want rule and I want it to be violent and as awful as possible. Lawyerball where guys just happen to get injured and crippled all the time is fucking bullshit.

SonOfSpam

Nihilism isn’t an ethos? Fuck it, I forget stuff.

blaxabbath

Second!

yeah right

Connor McGregor is sickened by this disgusting display.

Old Mason was kind of the instigator there.

He was trying to rip off Garrets helmet first so….

Singing along badly to The Who, and trying to think of anyone I’ve sung along to more than Roger Daltrey. Maybe Robert Plant? Could it be Freddie Mercury? Michael Stipe? Let’s smoke a bowl and figure this out.

Pouncey is ride or die. I can dig that.

It may have been the shock from the Spinal Trauma, but I just like how Mason Rudolph was just standing there next to the mosh pit not knowing what to do.

SonOfSpam

His name is Mason. He’s looking for a baggie of orange wedges at halftime.

BC Dick

Why didn’t they just end that at :08? I’m sure they’ve done it before. Either way that was a lot of fun.

Sharkbait

Holy damn. What the hell happened?

BC Dick

Good old helmet swinging fist punching fracas

Sharkbait

Just saw the helmet swing. I leave the room for 5 minutes! WTF started it?

SonOfSpam

You leaving the room. FEELING GOOD, ROOM LEAVER???

Oh, come on! They didn’t even bring Mayfield to take the knee? Wussies!

Being as how I kinda passed out for almost half the game, just want to see if JustStopDude is still amongst the living? Yes? Hello? Congrats to your guys, but can understand if you didn’t stay the course, shipmate…

Horatio Cornblower

I was going to go to bed but I think I’ll stick around for the post-game show and see if Joe Buck starts openly weeping at the horror of small children having witnesses while Troy tries to remember what happened to get Joe so upset.

No brawl between the coaches. Did not reach Mike Ditka / Forrest Gregg tier

SonOfSpam

Well, Tomlin’s a thug, so

And Ditka should be shot into the sun

Game Time Decision

The refs want everyone off the field to start the last snap. Tomlinson doesn’t get off the field even during play

Redshirt

On the bright side, the Bengals may be off the hook for Dirtiest Team Ever.

SonOfSpam

Nah, they got a Vontaze to go

Redshirt

I must have missed the part where Vontaze went Wack-a-Mole on an opposing QB.

SonOfSpam

Didn’t see it…doesn’t mean it didn’t happen

Horatio Cornblower

If Garrett had only hit a woman with that helmet he’d be back by Week 14.

WCS

This is terrible, and it not only is it correct, this will be an NFL during the off-season.

Senor Weaselo

BANNER THIS MAN. Unfortunately.

Horatio Cornblower

While very much something the NFL would do, let’s maybe not run this one up the banner.
