The Bears are sinking like a submarine with screen doors.
 
2012-12-18 10:54:37 AM
I had a good time watching the Saints demolish the Bucaneers on Sunday, but the crowd seemed far less energetic. It's been a really bizarre year, and the idiocy appears likely to continue now that Payton and the team want to make a drama out of his contract situation.
 
2012-12-18 10:57:46 AM
Appreciate the early green mods, but can we move this to the sports tab?

Also, I thought there was a rule that a team can't be above another team if they're two or more wins behind (49ers, Texans, Falcons, Patriots). Or did I just make that up?

What does Denver have to do to move into the top spot? Nine in a row isn't enough?
 
2012-12-18 11:18:42 AM
the Jets loss last night as pathetic. Sanchez complete farked up a free lunch.

I am totally disappointed in the Giants. there is 0 consistency.
 
2012-12-18 11:22:42 AM
The Jets should have fallen further.

Play their home games somewhere other than Denver, unfortunately.

Teams ranked at the top have played, and beaten, other teams ranked near the top. The Broncos haven't done that. Perhaps they would if they actually played a highly-ranked team, but we don't know, because their 9-game streak has been against a Ravens team that suddenly looks incapable of beating anyone, marginal teams (Saints, Bucs, etc.), and flat-out shiatty teams (Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers X 2, etc.). They've played 3 of the other teams currently in the top 5, and lost all 3 of those games.

Maybe the Donks really are as good as you think, but we really have no objective evidence of this.

Is it better to have sucked and lost, or better to never have sucked at all?

The first 2-3 games (maybe more?) this season, we were hearing all about how rusty Peyton looks, how he can't throw far, he's not in rhythm, the team was losing...

Their defense picked up, Peyton finally got the Mile-High adapter for his Juvenation Machine, and Thomas/Decker stopped playing the Benny Hill theme on their iPods through every practice.

We have a statistical tie for The Jake this week, I believe, between Sanchez and Josh Freeman, each with 4 INTs and a fumble. So I guess it'll be judged on the intangibles, and a strong case could be made for each, though you would have to think Sanchez has the inside track here.

Sanchez wasn't the one who fumbled that snap.
 
2012-12-18 11:41:06 AM
I am so thoroughly disappointed in the Steelers. They were handed gifts the last two weeks to get atop the division and look at the mess. Their WRs make stupid mistakes, their Oline gets the QB sacked out of FG range, the runners can't run or hold onto the ball, the defense lets the Cowboys get a first down on practically every play... They have no excuses now that most of the team is healthy.
 
2012-12-18 11:45:48 AM
I would really like to see a Pats-Niners rematch in the SB. It could happen, and I think it would be a really good game: two solid teams, each with the potential to beat the other, two excellent coaches, and the endless 'are Smith and Kaepernick the next Bledsoe and Brady?' storyline to keep the non-fans involved.

/ Broncs/Packers would also be a good game

Here are my FARK/FAIL system V0.9.0 ranks for this week. A lot of disagreement with ESPN this time:

(2) 3 Denver
(1) 4 San Francisco
(4) 5 New England
(6) 6 Green Bay
(7) 7 Seattle
(12) 8 New York (G)

The Cowboys and Browns are too damn high: +6
The Titans are too damn low: -6

I'm still not sold on their run game. It's alright, but this time of year, I'd like to see "capable of dominating stretches of playoff games", not just "alright".

Quasar: Sanchez wasn't the one who fumbled that snap


He did throw into triple coverage while off-balance with the game on the line, though.

Are we sure Rex Grossman didn't buy a Sanchez costume in the offseason? And that Brett Favrvrvrvrvrvre stayed retired this time?

I think that's Sexy Rexy's thing. We have to give the Sanchize his own. Release the Kraken is already taken, but there has to be something we can use... I'll work on it.

It's not me per se, it's based on who they beat and how badly. Getting their clock cleaned by a 12-2 team doesn't hurt them so bad in the rankings.

CBSSports gave it to Mangold. Fail ass QB or not, you can't snap it to the QB's ankles and then say it's not the center's fault.

Still the lulziest ending I can remember.

Look at Clayton going all-in on the derp. He's voted for the Falcons to be #1 both this week (off their huge win) AND last week (off their loss to the miserable Panthers).

Welcome back, one and all, to the trivia game where the questions are inane, the host is insane, and you get to work out your superficial middle cerebral vein. I'm tired. I feel like taking the week off. You know, like Eli Manning did. But I will forge ahead anyway and throw trivia questions off my back foot into double coverage like Eli and hope that one of you catches enough right answers to be the king of trivia for the week.

This week, we have three new categories. Over/Under, where you guess if a particular stat is over or under a given number. Whose Line Is It, Anyway? gives you the line of a Quarterback, and you guess who that Quarterback is. Record Setters is our first foray into knowing who holds that record your favorite player is currently chasing. As always, 3 Rounds, 3 Questions. Also 1 bonus this week so keep that in mind. Now put on your big-boy panties and let's get this done.

Over/Under

1. The Chicago Bears were particularly futile this week on 3rd down conversions. How many did they convert? Over or Under 3rd down conversions at (1.5)

2. Tony Romo passing for 341 yards this week broke the Steelers game streak of not allowing 300+ yard passers. How long was that streak? Over/under on streak at (12.5)

3. The Eagles lead the league in lost fumbles and the Houston Texans have the least. What multiple of lost fumbles do the Eagles have over the Texans? Over/under on fumble multiple at 6x.


Whose Line Is It, Anyway?


1. 13/27 127 yards, TD, 2 FUM, 6 Sacks

2. 14/21 104 yards, INT, 1 Sack

3. 35/55, 377 yards, 3 TD, INT, 4 Sacks

Bonus: Only one of those three QBs lost this week. Which one lost?


Record Setters:

1. Adrian Peterson running for 212 this week gives him 4 games with over 200 yards rushing. He has the third most 200-yard rushing games of all time. Who has the most 200 yard rushing games in NFL history?

2. Randy Moss's TD this week moves him over Terrell Owens to put him 4th on the all-time touchdown leaderboard, with 157 TDs. Can you name the 3 players ahead of him?

3. Josh Freeman and Mark Sanchez's 4-INT game moves them up the list of QBs who have recorded 4+ INT games. The leader in that unfortunate statistic is Ken Stabler, who racked up an impressive 14 games (and 4 wins!) recording 4 or more INTs. But which Hall of Fame QB comes in at #2 with 12 4+ INT games?

Pencils down, marital aids out, let us know how you did. Or don't. I really don't care.

2. 14/21 104 yards, INT, 1 Sack (Manning the Lesser)
3. 35/55, 377 yards, 3 TD, INT, 4 Sacks (Romo the White)

Bonus: Only one of those three QBs lost this week. Which one lost? (Manning)

2. Randy Moss's TD this week moves him over Terrell Owens to put him 4th on the all-time touchdown leaderboard, with 157 TDs. Can you name the 3 players ahead of him? (Rice, Marvelous Marv Harrison, oops)

Well, there's no points for extra-credit, but you only need to guess "over" or "Under". But you're very close on your answers.

The Broncos would have to beat a contender to break into the top and they don't face one. Early in the Season they lost to quality teams but so has everyone near the top. If I were a Broncos fan I would just take it in stride and get your respect in the playoffs.

Hell look at the Falcons nobody will give them respect until they win a playoff game (I won't either).

2012-12-18 01:04:34 PM
Hmm. The only 2 teams that all 5 voters agree on are Seattle at 7 and St. Louis at 17. That's a little weird. Usually the bottom or top teams are the ones they agree on. 2 random teams in the middle (or middle-ish, in Seattle's case) seems like an aberration.
 
2012-12-18 01:05:27 PM
I could be biased also but I think Washington beats both Chicago and Indy. I can't see them being below both of them.

I kinda feel like, maybe, in the early games they were still figuring out how to work together for the best effect.
With Manning instead of Tebow at QB, it's a whole new ball game.
