Your “I Don’t Want To Start Any Blasphemous Rumours” Monday Night Football Open Thread

But yeah, something’s got a sick sense of humour. Everything was lining up so well for Dak. He was gonna get some big money no matter how things shook out. Now? Maybe a one year ‘prove it’ deal. That ain’t right, that ain’t right at all. I read a word fart about Dak being “the future” but the Cowboys’ actions speak volumes.

Fallout:

-Speaking of ‘goners’, look for A.J. Green to be traded or released. One catch for three yards and a pathetic attempt at 1) batting down a potential interception and 2) making a tackle on said intercept. Redshirt probably doesn’t want to hear this but Cincy was smart as hell going after Tee Higgins. Sometimes a plan comes together…

-I laughed out loud hearing that Dan Quinn was replaced by DC Raheem Norris, the guy who was at the center of, oh, 70-75% of the Falcons problems. He’ll bring all the wisdom gained during his 17-31 run with Tampa to bear on the team. I’m not ruling out a one or two game bump though.

-Chase Claypool-his hometown is Abbotsford, British Columbia, as CBC was so proud to point out this morning-had himself a day for the ages. Did I mention something about rook wr’s getting up to speed recently? I love being right because it makes up for the 90% of times when I’m wrong.

-Daniel Jones is looking like David Carr these days. Remember that guy who never had a chance to develop (despite having skills) because his O-line caused him to be beaten to a pulp?

TO THE GAME!

Chargers/Saints:

-Mikey Thomas was ruled out yesterday(?). The reason being that he got into a fracas (this word is not used enough) with safety C.J. who care about his last name?

-Justin Herbert is the new ‘fuck it, I’m going long’ guy. Last week he had two scores of 72 and 53 yards. He’s tied for 2nd in TD’s over 20 yards (that’s throws over 20 yards, not a dink pass for 5 that ended up as a long score) despite being 25th in pass attempts.

-Now starring in the Halloween special, “The RB That Just Won’t Go Away” is Kalen Ballage, who was just signed to the Chargers practice squad. Folks complain about shitty coaches being recycled all the time-what about K.B.? And yes, I have no idea why I’m following his career so closely.

-Hunter Henry might just do something tonight (my fantasy brain hopes). When the Saints lost to the Raiders they gave up 15 catches, 142 yards and a score to that spot.

Let’s do this!

I don’t know, but Bridezillas is back on TV. That’s pretty similar.

WHERE IS MY RUNNING MAN?

Doktor Zymm

Oooh, finally saw the Biden McCain commercial, that’s well done.

King Hippo

Really is. Widow McCain seems like she really MEANS it, which just goes to show how deep the well of SWEET HATE can run.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I am going to have to take back what I said about Cindy McCain, which is that if you stay out past midnight in Scottsdale you turn into Cindy McCain.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

John McCain’s mom just died at the age of 108. Am I a horrible person for hoping that she managed to mail in a ballot on behalf of Biden?

Doktor Zymm

Super Chargers no more, off-brand low voltage Chargers it is!

King Hippo

Like one of them generic re-chargeable batteries, that starts leaking out pop rocks (but with MOAR flavoUr!!) on like the 3rd charge

TheRevanchist

Dead battery recycling it is.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Bottom Line up front: I’ve always been a bit of a Chargers fans. For no reason other than:
My high school opened in the mid-1960s and was named after Winston Churchill, who died in 1965. We are the Churchill Chargers. Won the State 4A Championship during my senior year, 1976-77, the only year I attended. (4A is as high as things went back then, it’s up to 5A these days).

That was excellent, kids!

Viva La Tabula Raza

I like SoCal denizens better than bayou dwellers. Good game, crap result.

Horatio Cornblower

Herbert looks like he’s gonna be good.

The Maestro

I think he’ll be perfectly cromulent for a while, at least.

hippofant

Calling a penalty on the helmet coming off would be *chef’s kiss*

King Hippo

Other Hippo had that thought too!

hippofant

God, New Orleans would BURRRRRN

Horatio Cornblower

That’s OK, there’ll be a hurricane coming along any minute to put the fires out.

King Hippo

Your CLIPPERS du MERDE, everybody!!

Viva La Tabula Raza

Ultimately, the youngster was not able to prevail.

Doktor Zymm

Transcripts of NFL game coverage are publicly available yes? I kinda want to write a neural net that predicts dumb shit people say after penalties

Mahomes pulling in endorsement money for all sorts of not doing stuff

Viva La Tabula Raza

maybe he can give some pointers to Dak.

Mike Williams deep down the sideline.

King Hippo

Just no FG followed by MOAR goddamned KamaraPOINTZ

Viva La Tabula Raza

SD need to bring in Dr Pimple Popper as a consultant.

King Hippo

Forgive them, Father, for they know not to cover the flat.

Horatio Cornblower

I can say this, having had the same skin at 22 as Herbert does now, but man, he looks like his face caught on fire and someone put it out with a pick-axe.

Doktor Zymm

You would think that the training staff could prescribe some retinol

King Hippo

perhaps…they seek to keep his self-esteem low, for when contract extension talks come ’round??

Doktor Zymm

That squares with the medical ethics I expect from NFL training staffs

litre_cola

Quit using that overpaid fuck! Your gimmick is cute but ultimately stupid.

I have figured out that this is why I remain unmarried at age 61.

I know that overtimes have been shortened due to injury concerns, but in all seriousness, what even is the point of a 10-minute overtime period? It seems like a pretty half-assed attempt to avoid ties.

Col. Duke LaCross

Which of course has resulted in more ties than I can recall having in a fairly short amount of time.

Doktor Zymm

There’s a reasonable chance of points occurring during any given 10 minute period. As long as each team can get a drive in I don’t think it’s too different.

JimU

I rather have a short OT than the college system. Fuck 4 and half hour games.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Oh, beloved trickster god DOINK, how I have missed you.

ballsofsteelandfury

Ha ha ha ha!!

PRAISE SHAN’KHOR!!!!!!

Viva La Tabula Raza

I spent my holiday Monday clearing a few things out of my DVR Playlist. Bunch of New England Game Warden shows (soothing, no one gets shot).
Also watched the first 4 episodes of the new Fargo series. I only watched the movie over 20 years ago, never watched the first three series. Intriguing. I love the old cars, but like all shows that use vintage vehicles, the cars all look like they just came off the showroom floor. No beaters.

OT!

Doktor Zymm

There is no such thing as a money badger. And reality agrees.

Viva La Tabula Raza

The White House is actually full of money badgers. They don’t give a shit.
