Welcome back! What a weekend of football, huh? (Note: this is being written prior to the weekend’s games. Insert picture of dog in science with the caption I have no idea what I’m doing.)
As a reminder, this post will cover comments made up to and through the Saturday Night Open Thread. Sunday comments stand alone and Monday comments will go on the next week’s post.
DFO Comments O’ The Week!
So, unfortunately, this was another one of those weeks where politics dominated. You know what I think about that.
Therefore, I want to touch on a few subjects that need to be discussed.
In case you missed it, NATO Pats Fan won the DFO Eliminator Pool! Not only did he win the pool, but he went undefeated the entire season! That’s mighty impressive!
I was in a big money pool once and managed to last until the end. I got a nice chunk of change from that so I not only know what a great feeling that is, but how difficult of a feat it is.
Big time congratulations to NATO Pats Fan! I only wish we were able to offer you more than a gently-used Fleshlight.
Seriously, though, if you want we can ship you a bottle of liquor or make a donation to your favourite charity in your name. Let us know.
Another big wiener was Mr. Ayo, who won the DFO Pigskin Pickem contest via a tiebreaker with King Hippo! Congratulations on beating the Cousin Sal of DFO! Your gently-used Fleshlight can be coming (phrasing) your way if you give us your address.
Alternatively, you can choose a bottle of liquor or a donation to the charity of your choice. Unfortunately, strip clubs in LA are closed, so a donation to Charity is strictly out of the question. For now.
Wild Card Weekend Reaction
As soon as I saw the schedule, I knew that I could make the joke that at least the Steelers lasted longer in the playoffs than the other Wild Card Weekend losers. As soon as that first snap went over Ben’s head, I knew this was not going to be their day. Well, maybe after the second or third interception.
Seriously, he played as badly as he has ever played in that first half. The rest of the team didn’t do much to change the outcome either. The Steelers need to seriously consider trading for DeShaun Watson or moving up in the draft to get a QB. Maybe they can trade JuJu to Houston or Jacksonville to make that happen. Oh yeah, he’s a free agent!
Ha ha they’re fucked.
And you wonder why I stopped caring…
Honestly, a few years ago, that loss would have gotten me pissed off. Instead, I was able to laugh and feel happy for Browns fans. I really do think they have been screwed for so long that they deserve something nice to happen. I’d love for them to keep going, but it will be tough going to KC.
New Orleans is not playing well but still handled the Bears, which tells you all you needed to know about the Bears. However, I do not think they get past Tampa Bay.
Interestingly, the #6 and #5 seeds won in both conferences setting up #1 vs #6 and #2 vs #5 matchups. I see the Chiefs rolling past the Browns and the Packers rolling past the Rams. With the #5 seeds, though, I see possible upsets.
As mentioned above, I think New Orleans is vulnerable. I also think the Ravens could take the Bills.
It’s gonna be Patrick Mahomes versus Aaron Rodgers for the Supe.
That’s all for now. Have a great week everyone!
