Hey, buck up P*ts fans. Turns out it really was THEM, not you.
¡Viva El Tractorcito! indeed. Add a jump-pass TD throw to his growing legend. Oh, and just a buck-95 plowing fields on the ground. And while Lamar! will no doubt be unfairly shat upon by the sportsball media (he was actually pretty damned good, just not at his absolute best), folk should be crediting the 53 players and however many coaches the Tits have. Impressive display of FITBAW.
Remember, folks. Had the Noo Yawk FITBAW Jest not defeated the Yinzers in Week 16? Our now-beloved Tit Men don’t make el torneo. So…thanks for that, Adam Gase.
In order to beat the Ratbirds, you have to out-physical them. Suffice to say, that happened in spades. Well-timed pressures (first and goal from the 4 with 11 seconds to play especially – 14-10 and 14-6 feel way different at the half) and incredible front seven discipline. Every man in his place. Not biting on play fakes or misdirection.
Tennessee will be on the road next Sunday. Only a madman would bet against them. Fuck you, YOU have a problem!
28-12 is your final, and one can say even that margin flattered to deceive.
OK, so I started with the late match. Santa Clara? Did NOT have similar struggles with the NFC’s 6 seed. Janeane was a bit up-and-down leading the offense – but with the defense playing at Saturday’s level, if doesn’t matter. 27-10, and the Tomsulas certainly could have scored more had they needed to.
Remember Tevin Coleman going MIA during the back half of fantasy season? I guess he kept himself fresh. 105 rushing and 2 scores. Easy peasy.
Remember everyone saying that Kirk Cousins got the “big game” monkey off his back in N’Awlins? 172 yards, a pick, and a wet fart 5.9 YPA, as Captain Dingleberry lived up to his nickname. Yes, I liked that.
But the real stat of the game, which should have Green Bay and Seattle nervous? Dalvin Cook held to 26 yards on 15 touches. That is some dominating shit. Oh LAWD, how I’d like to see that rushing defense take on El Tractorcito. Is that the Superb Owl matchup I now expect? Yep. Is pretending to have a bead on what will happen next this NFL season absurd? Also yep.
Let’s enjoy this crazy train while it lasts. Good damned fun, this.
