I am not sure what it says about me that every single answer was a guess and the only 2 that I got right were WAGs. To be fair though, the 2 I did get right were educated guess because ESPN of NFL Network had a segment on WAGs a few weeks ago.

whoa! 10.5!

1) i know we suck but....10.5? come on.
2) actually i don't have a second point.

10.5. I should lock that down now before it falls to like, 7. 10.5? come on man.

mitchcumstein1: The Chiefs are the worst team in the league, and it's not close. After this shiatshow last weekend I would make the argument that they may very well be the worst franchise in sports.


They are certainly in the running for the most miserable season of any team in sports history, taking into account on-field performance, off-the-field events and expectations heading into the season (quite a few people, myself included, thought they could be a stealth contender; everyone knew the Lions were going to suck the year they went 0-16). I think the way to clinch the title for good is if Jacksonville gets the #1 pick.

The Jags beat the Eagles two weeks ago and the Chiefs won Sunday. Don't let the scoring against Dallas' weak defense fool you: the disintegrating Eagles are, right now, the worst team in the NFL.

roc6783: I am not sure what it says about me that every single answer was a guess and the only 2 that I got right were WAGs.


It says you're a normal human being who follows football but doesn't get bogged down by minutiae. I didn't know most of these either because they're not really something you'd pick up unless you happen to be watching a game in which that stat is spoken, or occurs. I probably spend 30 minutes just browsing through stats until something jumps out at me.

When I grab stats I try to grab anomalies or things that stand contrary to the current narrative of sports coverage. Like Andrew Luck having the most INTs and being in the bottom 5 of the league in completion percentage. You'd never, ever think that was him because of the way media covers him... unless you watch the Colts or happen to have looked up his stats.

Now, of course, that's not to say that Luck isn't a benefit to his team or that he'll never be any good. Just that sportscasters don't really care about stats when they get a player they like. That's why I started doing this in the first place, to get people actually looking at the performances behind the hype.

In other news, I'm pretty sure Peyton is recovering from that career-ending injury. Sure, he may be only 80 percent back, but he's slowly making progress. I think that in due time, he may yet again prove to be an elite QB before he retires.

The Packers have 1 backup O-lineman. I have not checked to see if they updated Lang's status, but wow, they are in a world of trouble if someone else goes down. Not that the line was playing well before. Wonder what Mark Tauscher and Chad Clifton are up to...not that either would be an improvement over whoever goes down next, just that they might be as good as that guy's back up.

Friends,

We are gathered here today to celebrate a remarkable achievement, if by "celebrate" you mean "mourn" and by "achievement" you mean "tragedy that makes the Holocaust and 9/11 combined look like puppies running through a field of cotton candy with rainbows shooting out of their asses." Truly, the seriousness of this absurdly repugnant event cannot be understated. The horror of this happening cannot be downplayed nor put into proper context, as there is no proper context.

The Tuskegee experiment, in which the United States government knowingly infected six hundred indigent African Americans with syphilis while telling them that they were getting free healthcare?

Drew Brees threw five interceptions.

The citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the atomic bombs were dropped, scores of skeletons strewn across their cities with the flesh seared from their skulls and still others turned into mere shadows on the sidewalk?

Drew Brees threw five interceptions.

The murders of Abraham Lincoln, John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King...all good men and great leaders with so much work still to be done and cut down before they could accomplish any of it by those so filled with hate that they would deprive the world of any future works they might have yet achieved?

DREW BREES THREW FIVE INTERCEPTIONS AND LOST HIS RECORD TOUCHDOWN PASS STREAK AGAINST THE ATLANTA FALCONS DURING A PLAYOFF CHASE!

Speaking honestly, I can certainly say I was disconsolate directly after that game was done. Understandable, I'd think, considering the Delhomme Rating that was notched. 66.7 is typically good enough to secure the trophy. In fact, there have been plenty of occasions in which 50.0 was the winner - fark, notoriously there was even that week where 33.3 was the high water mark and somehow procured an award for the week's victor.

Having simply to sit through all those games yet to be played seemed another torture test. As if serving the fiendish plot of a ginger-headed douchebag wearing a suit straight out of the JCPenney catalogue for husky preteens, this game had happened on Thursday. Plenty of opportunities to be bested, sure, but this...six turnovers. It was simply asking too much, even of the typical Jake candidates. Perhaps it would have been better if it was a Monday, I figured. It would've been quick, sudden, and utterly decisive...in its own way, a small measure of peace.

All hope seemed lost, and there was no bottom.

Those of who you populate the official discussion thread on Sunday know what happened next.

thestorydept.thestorydepartme3.netdna-cdn.com

Dear Rob,

If you're reading this, I'm in the lead for The Jake. And if I did that badly, maybe you're willing to go a little further...past the edge of what your handwriting clearly suggests. You remember the name of the Chiefs' starting quarterback, don't you?


"Brady Quinn...Captain Courageous?" I thought, a single and ever-so-manly tear rolling down my cheek.

Exactly. Be courageous and take heart in the fact that Mark Sanchez is out there. So is Christian Ponder, and Cam Newton, and maybe Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to pick just the right week to stop being the bridesmaid and finally be the bride. Remember, Rob, hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping this letter finds you, and finds you well.

Your friend and personal savior,

Drew


Hope had returned via the United States postal service, and I was made anew. Hell, maybe it was possible. 83.3 was an incredibly high score, but you never know. Phil Rivers had yet to take the field, and he'd already Gone Delhomme once this season. Maybe another was in his future, no one can tell when that poor bastard's gonna explode. Thirty quarterbacks had yet to take the turn on the wheel of football fortune. Thirty quarterbacks, and not all of them were elite. Some of them pretty much sucked. Some of them were downright shiatty. Others still were Ryan Lindley. Thirty quarterbacks, maybe more if any new Eras were to begin on Sunday or Monday, perhaps if an obese loudmouth who never met a finger sandwich or a toe like a toe toe he didn't like made a farking inexplicable call to the bench...

More on that later.

For now, I can only remember how soon we all had a new hope. One quarterback was seemingly rushing to serve as Breesus' salvation, so wonderfully strange considering how many more he had personally given such a gift. One gunslinger was rapidly rising up the ranks of the leaderboard and it all suddenly seemed possible. Three interceptions quickly rang out - the first secured on his very first pass attempt, no less. A 50.0 was in the books before halftime, and there we were. Just into the third quarter, heroics coming from a very, very likely place, on pace for at least the second Gone Delhomme game of the season. And just flitting through the minds of those who dared to dream, those who dared not even whisper the name of the most rare and precious of flowers? Would we see it? Would an elite quarterback's saving grace be achieved through a Full Delhomme?

No.

No, it would not, because a disgusting fatbody with sexual issues best handled by a trained professional decided that it would not even have the opportunity to bloom.

Somehow, some way...THIS week was too much. Not the pair of turnovers in the first game against the Patriots. Not losing 30 to 9 at home to friggin' Miami. Not going 9 for 22 against Seattle. Not getting fed a near-fiftyburger on national television by New England, and not even the Goddamned motherfarking BUTTFUMBLE!...none of these excellent examples of how not to be a winning quarterback in the NFL were quite enough.

No.

Three turnovers in two-and-a-half quarters of action against the woeful Arizona Cardinals led by a quarterback who seemingly could not throw a pass within 15 yards of a receiver OR a defender?

THAT was it. It was all ol' Rex could stands and he could stands no more. The dawning of The Greg McElroy Era simply had to happen in Week 13 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and with it a decree that Breesus would be crucified upon that field in Georgia.

Wait a minute.

Golgotha...Georgia. Rex Ryan...Pontius Pilate.

Oddly similar place names and strangely alliterative proper names do not lie, people. They do not lie and moreover they reveal a plot years in the making. Indeed, the road to the Week 13 presentation of The Jake has been in the books for years. Who could possibly be that diabolical? Who indeed?

I'm sensing some resistance from the readers. All you have to remember is that the condemnation, dear friends, was merely Station I. Stations III, VII, and IX, in which the weight of the cross was just too much to bear and he fell down? Interceptions one, three, and four. Station V, in which a citizen was moved by his plight to assist him in his burden? Chris Ivory slapping the ball into the air for interception number two.

Where's the evidence of the multi-year conspiracy, you ask, this is all from the game itself!

To that I direct your attention to Station VI, in which a saintly woman was distraught at this barbaric treatment and wiped his face of blood and sweat.

v012o.popscreen.com

I think we all know what happened here.

In 2010.

I can hear the one final question still poised to tumble from your lips, pointing out that the Jets game obviously took place after the Saints game, so how could the former set the latter into motion, further boomeranging back years prior to that initial event?

To that I can only say this.

Payton 4:13 - "Through Breesus all things are possible." So shut up.

The striking similarities don't end there, of course. The cross, the crippling sanctions levied against his team, the weight of which he has borne too heavy a load. So many different roles he has played, so many forced throws when the running game has been abandoned, the result at times a quarterback so unlike the one his apostles have come to adore.

And so there he was at midfield, his gift slipping away as the fifth interception sunk to the safety's breast...the jeering Dirty Bird faithful mocking him, spitting on him as he suffered. "King of the Who Dats" read the sign above him, Falcons players' hands pressing upon his beautifully balding head a helmet made of thorns.

"IT IS ACCOMPLISHED!" he cried, his efforts in redemption for the Saints in Week 13 done at last.

"IT SURE AS SHIAT IS!" screamed a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shiat behind him.

And with that, Roger Goodell punched Drew directly in the balls.

For committing an amount of turnovers that Jake Locker could sadly only tie, for happening to do so when Rex Ryan finally realized Mark Sanchez sucks, for honestly having the worst game as a Saint that I can remember him having, I...I am not proud, but The Jake being the cold and unfeeling beast it is, I must do my duty and award The Jake for Week 13 of the 2012 NFL season to Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.

I would just like to say that I knew it wasn't Romo who was tied with Breesus for most INTs in the league. When Brees threw his 5 INT game, I looked it up & saw he was in 1st (last?) in that category. And since I knew Romo hadn't thrown any since, I knew it couldn't be him.

Yeah, I watch a lot of Sherlock Holmes, what.

Anyway. I appreciate your efforts in narrative-squashing. We could all use a bit more actual facts in the face of "that's just what I heard."

I don't think Denver has Super Bowl talent but it appears they have the easiest road there, spesh if they get the bye and the seeding shakes out. But I would take Houston home or away vs Denver, Pats home or away, probably Ravens home or away, and as for wild cards, the Colts, Bengs, and Steelers, it is hard to say. Spesh PIT if Ben comes back healthy.

<b><a href="http://www.fark.com/comments/7467507/81083368#c81083368" target="_blank">rickythepenguin</a>:</b> <i>JohnBigBootay: John Clayton: Andrew Luck may go down as the greatest rookie quarterback in NFL history.

WTF is he smoking because I'll have some of that. Now... I love Andrew Luck. I think he's very good, gonna get better, and I'd be nothing less than super duper excited about the future of my team if my team had the guy. But greatest rookie qb in NFL history? I don't know if Clayton looks at the stats on the website he works for, but there's two rookie qb's this year alone who have markedly better numbers than the deserving esteemed Mr. Luck. And they've been playing football a good long while. It would take a while to look all this shiat up but at this point of the season I'm not sure Luck cracks the top ten seasons by a rookie qb, let alone best of all time.


Robert Griffin III, WSH 218/325 (67.1%) 2,660 17TD 4INT QBR 104.4
Russell Wilson, SEA 201/317 (63.4%) 2,344 19TD 8INT QBR 95.2
Andrew Luck, IND 279/503 (55.5%) 3,596 17TD 16INT QBR 76.1


Back in the shallow end, Johnny. RGIII is +13 in TD/INT, Wilson +11, and Luck a Sanchezian +1 through 13 games. Yeah, Luck has a ton more pass yards but also almost 200 more attempts than either, so that's expected.</i>

The criticism of RG3 is that his stats are inflated by lots of screens, where Luck is more conventional. The knock on Wilson is that he started slow and is surrounded by more talent, especially on defense. Next year Luck should see a little bit more in the way of challenging defense, but he still going to be playing Titans and Jags twice. On the flip side of that Wilson should see a somewhat easier slate of defenses with AFC and NFC South. I would like to see Wilson come away with the rookie passing TD record though; needs 8 TDs in 4 games.

rickythepenguin: tommyl66: Yeah, I've pretty much accepted that Houston and Denver will grab the byes in the AFC


I don't think Denver has Super Bowl talent but it appears they have the easiest road there, spesh if they get the bye and the seeding shakes out. But I would take Houston home or away vs Denver, Pats home or away, probably Ravens home or away, and as for wild cards, the Colts, Bengs, and Steelers, it is hard to say. Spesh PIT if Ben comes back healthy.


I'd definitely agree, although Denver does have quite the home field advantage on their side. As a Pats fan I'm not dreading playing at either Denver or Houston (or Baltimore for that matter). Pittsburgh with Roethlisberger would be the only Wild Card that would seem to have any shot of winning in the first round. Although any division matchup is always tough so any combo of Baltimore, Pittsburgh or Cincy would be a tough call.

Id sum up the Vikings season and in particular Ponder's as inconsistent he can be great when he is on but he is not consistently on.

lecavalier: I have a feeling the Patriots are going to beat the Texans quite handily. I know that sounds crazy but I can see a 34-14 win.


Depends. It the Texans learned anything it's blitz Brady early and often. Otherwise the Pats will have their way with the Houston
