4NTLRZ: eddievercetti: Iggles/Jets/Cards/???

The nominees for the Choke artists of 2012!

Philly, for sure. I don't think anyone had any major expectations of the Jets or Cards this year, aside from the mis-guided among their respective fanbases.


ESPN Pre-Season NFL Predictions

3 biggest Disappointments (assuming these teams miss the playoffs):
1. Philly.... 6 of 16 picked them to win division, with 6 more picking them as a wild card.... 1 picked them to win Superbowl.
2. Steelers... 15 of 16 picked them to make the playoffs.. still might make it, but, not going to totally suck like SD or KC either.
3. Bears.... 10 people picked to make the playoffs
Honorable Mentions:
Buffalo .... 9 people picked them to make playoffs
San Diego.... 7 people picked them to make the playoffs
Kansas City... 6 people picked them to make playoffs

3 Biggest Surprises (assuming they make playoffs):
1. Colts... nobody called them for a playoff spot
2. Redskins... nobody called them for a playoff spot
3. Seahawks.... Only 1 person picked them to make playoffs
Honorable Mention:
4. Vikings .... Nobody called them to make playoffs
5. Cowboys .... Only two people picked them to make playoffs (one to win SB tho)

Interesting all the biggest surprises are all of the rookie QBs performing great.

As said on Mike & Mike this week though... if you'd said before the season that both Luck & RGIII would perform above expectations, and there would be a 3rd rookie QB that should have serious consideration as rookie of the year, you'd have been totally shocked.

fatalvenom: Pats below the Texans?

Wut?


Why not?

Head to head was hours, even days ago, you might as well ask "who beat the ravens?"

Week 15 Pats have too many turnovers, not like the good old days of week 14 Pats, now that was a team that could win a turnover battle.

Somehow, I think the Seattle/ SF game will go down alot like the Oregon/ Stanford game did. With Seattle being Oregon. I just don't seem them putting up those kind of numbers against the Niners.

They won't put up 50 points against the 49ers but anyone who bets against the Seahawks at home is a fool.

Treygreen13: Although I have to wonder if you're just saying that to point out that the Seahawks have a good rookie DE. I mean, it's great that they got him and all, but could they have gotten him later? Probably, considering his pre-draft ranking. A ton of credit goes to their scouting department seeing the talent there, but could they have taken him a bit later.


Maybe, but we picked up the defensive rookie of the year in the 2nd round, Russell Wilson in the 3rd, there's something to be said for not showing off. No one likes a draft pig.
 
2012-12-18 03:25:19 PM  

Treygreen13: seumasokelly: Makes me wonder where the narrative would be now if the Cowboys had taken a guy like Bruce Irvin in the 1st round with a pick that was roundly derided - and he ended up on pace for double-digit sacks with America's TeamTM.

Well the Cowboys primary need this last round was CB, and they traded up to get one. I'm sure that they'd love to have a great DE but I don't have an issue with Mo Claiborne, other than that he is currently injured. He's been a good rookie corner and will get better.

Although I have to wonder if you're just saying that to point out that the Seahawks have a good rookie DE. I mean, it's great that they got him and all, but could they have gotten him later? Probably, considering his pre-draft ranking. A ton of credit goes to their scouting department seeing the talent there, but could they have taken him a bit later.

Of course, I'm operating off assumptions and only partial information. But being derided for reaching can be legitimate even if the player works out.


I normally would be just pointing out how well the Seahawks did, but in this case I actually wonder what'd happen. I was using Irvin as an example, not necessarily in that Dallas needed a DE, but as a pick that was a little off the radar but fit the scheme perfectly. Dallas seems to walk into the draft looking for the biggest name/most talented guy and then shoehorn them into the team. It may not be a perfect allegory since you can't really start with a blank slate in Dallas like Carroll/Schneider did here.

For instance, I think the Seahawks knew they had solid safeties in Thomas and Chancellor, so drafted/signed CBs that are big and physical (read: great underneath man-to-man) rather than the most talented cover CBs available who can run with anyone and close super-fast.

/Also, word is that the Seahawks were trying to trade back again, but couldn't work anything out to drop within the range where they thought Irvin would still be there. Jim Harbaugh has admitted that he'd have taken him in the 1st rd and I think there were one or two others looking closely at him.

I don't think you're right on this one. He was the top rated and scouted CB and there wasn't another CB taken for 38 picks. It wasn't a "Splash" move as it was "We need a guy at this position so we're going to go get the one that won the Jim Thorpe award and was a unanimous All-American."

Although Janoris Jenkins was the next guy and he's been pretty solid, if not better.

A little off topic but why isn't anyone making a big deal about Andy Reid's dead ass son having 20 vials of steroids in his room? While he was the team's strength and conditioning coach. Maybe that's why the Eagles suck this year. They got Madrich/Bosworthed when the juice dried up.

That's not true - at least not any more than any other team in the league. You don't see Seahawks fans headed up the aisles in the 3rd Quarter or anything. Plus they just dropped a 50-burger in a stadium where the QBs had to whisper to avoid being heard by the defense.

whistleridge: 'are Smith and Kaepernick the next Bledsoe and Brady?'


I don't see the parallel at all. Bledsoe was a Pro Bowl QB who did a Wally Pipp act by getting hurt and allowing a relative unknown to outshine him. Smith was a marginal starter and it was only a matter of time before Kapernick took his job.

BTW, show me a game where Carroll ran up the score at USC. I don't remember it ever happening - in fact, I recall him going out of his way not to run up the score several times.

I didn't mean Claiborne specifically. He was the highest rated guy at a position of need who fit the team well. I guess I just look at how the Cowboys play and don't really see much of a plan at play. Good QB, great receivers in Bryant, Austin and Witten, solid D that can rush the passer...and they don't seem to play as well as they should. They're in position to contend for a playoff spot which is good, but they feel like a team that could play a hell of a lot better and blow teams out rather that win by the skin of their teeth. My feeling is that signing/drafting with a team plan and sticking to it might turn them into that dominant force year in and year out. Plus, it helps that big name FA players want to go to Dallas - we don't have that benefit so much up here.

Even if he did, I think people have to drop the issue in NCAA were the points make every bit of difference in the world.

Sad really, considering that's the opposite of what the NCAA should encourage and such.
 
2012-12-18 03:45:59 PM  
Friends,

We are gathered here today to celebrate a remarkable achievement. Remarkable in every sense of the word, really. God knows when a quarterback races out to an early 83.3, the rest of us mock and deride, point and laugh, and shortly thereafter simply turn our minds off to such things. The Jake has been handled, it's clearly been won by whomever and while tracking the scoreboard for the rest of the games will be fun, it won't exactly be exciting. No one will seriously consider the possibility that someone else might sneak it away, even if the landmarks of this award still have yet to play.

Hell, it would almost require something surreal.

Something supernatural.

Something like the magic of MS6.

To be certain, said magic works in mysterious ways. One may say that this quarterback's previous win, notched at a truly pathetic 33.3, is evidence enough that it doesn't even exist. Others would argue that it is all the evidence necessary that this is a gunslinger truly touched by the hand of suck. The divine hand of providence guiding his arm to throw the ball into triple coverage, to convince him that he still has a few seconds to hang onto the ball, no matter what the growing shadow over his head might otherwise say.

That even when he cannot achieve, he achieves.

Never has that been more readily apparent than in this lost Jets season, a season so bereft of bearings and so lacking in logic that if a tribesman from the wilds of Borneo was to be transplanted into modern society and asked which team had their coach suspended for the year, they might just answer Gang Green. Yet somehow, in some way, they were still eligible for the playoffs this week. Just think about that.

lionbackers.com

Playoffs?!?

Yes, Jim, there IS...or WAS...the possibility of a Jets playoff spot.

With this assuredly motley crew made up of a backup quarterback given more attention than everyone else, a third-stringer looking more adept at quarterbacking than the starter, and overseeing it all, a jovial man of massive corpulence and an equally massive appetite for little piggies on their way to the market.

Which would also greatly interest the Borneo wildman, but I digress.

And like a surprising lot of the dates with destiny that have been detailed in these pages, this week's award-winning performance started off slowly. Our man finished with a clean slate after quarter one came to its conclusion, despite several worthy attempts to crack the rankings. Indeed, this alleged franchise QB didn't hit the scoreboard until there were a mere four minutes remaining in the first half. Not withstanding the hilarious sack lunch he was fed to send the game to halftime, taking down Josh Freeman would be perhaps his gravest challenge.

Thankfully, there was still some magic left in that old Jets helmet they found.

91 seconds elapsed, and 33.3 was shining brightly. If anyone's thoughts leapt to the idea of a Jake race, however, they were sorely disappointed. The rest of the quarter played out and 33.3 stayed stuck on the board. Worse, the man known as The Sanchise threw a pass for a touchdown.

A touchdown.

To his own team, no less.

All those faces soon blanched at that disgusting sight, and all seemed set in stone. There were only eight minutes and forty four seconds left in the game, and while the Jets' playoff hopes seemed to have died, something much more valuable seemed totally out of their quarterback's ever-so-shaky grasp. Josh Freeman had incredibly won The Jake for Week 15 of the 2012 NFL season against the Worst Defense in the World while failing to score even a single point against them, and -

Hope was rekindled with that criminally underthrown long bomb down the sidelines, we all dearly remember that. It was pathetic, putrid, puerile, and any other such descriptive terms beginning with the letter "p" that can be used to describe a wounded duck quite so ugly. Still, with the ball firmly held to the chest of the Tennessee cornerback, his score was a mere 50.0. Those numbers might be enough to get by in some weeks, but not this one. Not when Josh Freeman had made the defense that defines "terrible" for 2012 appear to be shockingly competent. Just over five minutes were left, and we all knew that if a Mayan Apocalypse miracle were to happen, it had to be continued now.

Another big bomb lived up to its label and the race for The Jake was born anew. 4 interceptions had stunned the crowd, thrilled our teeming masses yearning to breathe Jake, and all at once, the Farkistani population's lonely eyes turned to you, Jets defense.

media.tumblr.com

Woo woo woo.

And we ALL knew it as Sexy Rexy's pride and joy not contained in Michelle's loafers held strong. They held true.

A furious fourth quarter run at forever could actually happen.

There was no telling what might happen, though. That playoff potential was absurdly still on the table as the offense strode onto the field. Down by four points, needing to notch a touchdown score in only 47 brief seconds, the game, the trophy, everything hung by a thread. Which way would the game break?

It only took one play. A single opportunity to either win the game or the gold was all that was necessary for this supposedly handsome, supposedly franchise quarterback to make up his mind. And he made it up well, people.

Oh so very well.

The exchange from Mangold was bobbled, the chance to win and the long shot hopes to reach the tournament dashed, and the Titans could kneel away the end of the strangest New York Jets season in non-Kotite memory. There was a tie on the board, but the hearts and minds of the public was won.

Whomever has him in the Secret Santa, sleep well. He now truly is the man who has everything - a GQ cover-quality body, a golden pair of bookends, and a face full of ass running on perpetual loop on myriad websites across the interwebs.

For thrilling us all with a pursuit of glory not thought possible, for overcoming what seemed to be a no-brainer winner, for recording a 83.3 score at the absolute 11th hour, I am proud to present The Jake for Week 15 of the 2012 NFL season to Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets.

The reanimation thing would be pretty awesome but I was more surprised the NFL didn't announce at least a token investigation and the DAs official response was "move along, nothing to see here." You're right that it wouldn't really change anything but I think they could at least keep up the sham that they're trying to keep the playing field level.

FootballOutsiders, and others have written about this. To me they've made a sufficently strong case for Watt, who might possibly be having the most dominant season for a defensive player in decades, or possibly ever. If Purple Jesus wasn't on pace for taking over Dickerson's record, never mind 2k, I would be for Watt getting the league MVP. But as great as Watt's season is, Peterson's is a performance is one many of us may not see repeated in our lifetimes, and it can be explained with the benefit of an Autumn Thunder soundtrack as opposed to spreadsheets.

Just thought I'd point out the question is all-time touchdown leaders. Not all-time touchdown receptions. Other than Rice, the other two are running backs.

Because Tebow actually played a whole series in a real game last night? Also, the Eagles have been pumped up for 2 straight years and have fallen straight on their faces. ESPN is just taking them out back and give them the Old Yeller treatment.

This is a point that shouldn't be ignored. Opponents have gotten dangerously close to blocking a few of Jon Ryan's punts recently. If it sends a signal to San Fran to back off next week, it will be worth it.

elguerodiablo: seumasokelly: elguerodiablo: whizbangthedirtfarmer: Here's hoping Seattle will score 50 points against SF this week.

/knowing that SF will score 51 if that happens

I fricking hate Carroll, the fake punt while up 30 is some bushleague douchey bullshine, and the Trashducks defense putting up 55 fantasy points over the past 2 weeks killed my best 2 fantasy teams but for some insane reason I find myself hoping Seattle wins on Sunday night.

This ain't little league. When you're up 30 in the 4th quarter, you've been gifted an extra practice against live dummies - why not see how something plays out? The Buffalo Bills' feelings should be somewhere around the 142nd most important thing on Carroll's list of priorities, if it makes the list at all.

See also Carroll-Harbaugh rivalry. When you throw a hissy fit when someone does something to you and you do something similar to someone else your weapons grade hypocritical.

/what's your deal man?

Sorry I just really hate Pete Carroll.


So in other words you weren't informed of Carroll's postgame explanation?

I guess if you hate a guy that much you can't be reasoned with, or accept any explanations other than what you've programmed yourself to believe. Suit yourself, man.

And RIGHT AFTER I write this week's entry, I see a tweet from Schefter that Sanchez has lost his job to McElroy?

GODDAMN IT, Schefter, tweet faster!

Good job Rob, as usual

robsul82: Whomever has him in the Secret Santa, sleep well. He now truly is the man who has everything - a GQ cover-quality body, a golden pair of bookends, and a face full of ass running on perpetual loop on myriad websites across the interwebs.


Glorious.

The Texans being ranked above the Patriots A WEEK after the drubbing they took is a god damn joke.

elguerodiablo: AnEvilGuest: elguerodiablo: A little off topic but why isn't anyone making a big deal about Andy Reid's dead ass son having 20 vials of steroids in his room? While he was the team's strength and conditioning coach. Maybe that's why the Eagles suck this year. They got Madrich/Bosworthed when the juice dried up.

hey Grandpa ,we call that Merrimaned now

It'd be more poetic if we could use Brian Cushing since there is really a thing called Cushing syndrome but he seems to be doing well without the Juice.


Certainly better than Nicole Brown did without the Juice

LucklessWonder: Who's DPOY?

J.J Watt?
Aldon Smith?
Von Miller?

OPOY has to be AP, assuming that MVP goes to a QB yet again.


Geno Atkins

Carroll went on Borck & Salk and explained that he was misunderstood in his postgame explanation. He said the he still had his foot on the gas pedal and intentionally left the call to audible if they saw the formation they liked in. He explained that he didn't mean to say he felt bad for it happening, but rather felt bad that everyone else decided to be butthurt over it enough that he had to explain it. Frankly, I don't give a shiat either way.

He would be better if he had a soul.

stappawho: I personally witnessed him take a knee at the end of the first half against my beloved WSU.

Believe me, the final score of 69-0 or whatever it ended up being was a sign of mercy.


Exactly - USC beat the sh*t out of a lot of teams, but you'll notice that they didn't score much at all in the fourth quarters of most games. Even in the 55-19 curbstomping of Oklahoma for the title game, they didn't throw a single pass in the fourth quarter.
