Di Atribe: Eeeeeeeeeeh, I seem to remember you picking on him the past few days.


I think you are the only person in the world who would take my comments as me picking on him. I have constantly said he is a top 10 QB and that he is better than my team's QB.

My argument has always been that people put entirely too much emphasis on the QB. QB's don't win games. Teams do. Players should be analyzed by their contributions to individual plays. W/L should only come into play when looking at teams as a whole. Not players.

I also think PFM is the best quarterback who has ever played despite the fact that he has only won a single super bowl and has also had a reputation for choking in the big game.

Romo (coming from a Cowboys fan) is simply an average quarterback. Even when watching the game when the Cowboys got the ball back at the end of the 4th quarter I said to myself, "watch Romo blow this one with an obligatory interception." Next play, yup, a game losing interception. He does it all the damn time and has earned the reputation for blowing games in the final few minutes, because, well he blows games in the final few minutes.

The guy just cracks under pressure all the damn time when a game is on the line.

Oh well, at least the Cowboys are tied for first in the division.

I can mostly agree with this, but the pick six at the end of SB XLIV in Miami makes me lean back to 'the big game.'

[assets.huluim.com image 850x330]

I love that the Chiefs are doing so well.  It means its a magical year like 2006 again.  The Chiefs can come into Indy and lose as the Colts go on to win the Superb Owl.

Oh, we're well aware of your tendency to knock us out in the playoffs, thanks.

/sneaking suspicion that you'll be right


In that Superbowl run, I and my then 6 year old daughter sat next to a Chiefs fan.  He had more alcohol in his system than 21st Century Liquors has in its store.  He was hilarious.  We stood up for him to keep the cops from removing him.  He and my daughter hit it off.  I almost felt sorry for him driving all that way, lugging 4 cowboy hats he'd made from Budweiser cartons, and drinking that much to watch his team hit a brick wall.

I like KC.  And their fans.

Good thing the Saints are the very last team the Falcons would ever trade a deadly weapon to.  It would be like if the Cowboys decided to tank and traded, I don't know, DeMarcus Ware to the Redskins.  In a year that the Redskins were good.  Not happening.


I'm aware of this.  Of course the best thing to do would be to give him back to KC.  That doesn't stop me from imagining a fantasy world where the Saints offense gets kicked up to 11.

Unfortunately Romo picked a really bad time to throw a pick. If he had a shiatty game from the start, nobody would care that much but he did it at the end when another score likely wins the game.

A pick six on the first drive? Oh well. A pick when already down? Meh, losing anyway.

A pick at the end of the game when in a position to knock off the consensus best team in the league by playing what is possibly the best game of your life? That gets attention.

Friends,

We are gathered here today to celebrate a remarkable achievement.   An achievement remarkable, perhaps, in how it slipped away from all of our eyesight.  This was a victory gained in the shadows, an accomplishment entirely notable now that wasn't noted at all while it was taking place.

Maybe the greatest win notched this week was in how we all played a part in finally answering the question, "If a quarterback sucks when no one is there to see it, did the suck really take place?"

The answer?


i63.photobucket.com

Oh, it definitely farking does.

Week 5 in the NFL typically answers quite a few questions, and this year's version was no different.  Just over a month into the year, it can be seen which teams are for real, which are posers, which are the Atlanta Falcons.

In 2013?

Matt Schaub's forgotten the object of football.  The Packers and Niners look to be lying in wait for a big push late in the season.  The greatest and bestest team in the history of football's sprung a leak on defense and as for the beneficiary of said leak, well...


www.dhbrownsports.com

Antonio is always lurking.

Always.

So what of this week's victor, what of this week's champion who saw a slate of leaders who could easily be taken, quickly be overcome, and thought, "That biatch is MINE?"  Well, he certainly knows a little bit about being dubbed far better than reality would show, doesn't he?


25.media.tumblr.com

Oh sure, he has plenty of experience with sportswriters overcome with nonsensical ramblings about yardage numbers without thought of when they were recorded or what the score was at the time, being drenched with drool at the thought of a revolutionary new take on the position.  And yes, certain voices - incredibly intelligent and wildly brave voices, natch - spoke up against the foolishness they heard and foretold the future that would soon arrive, replete with turnovers aplenty and losses by the bucketful caused by that same awful decision making process mentioned by those lionhearted outsiders.

Those factors all came into play this week, all while the nation's eyes were watching the megascreens at JerryWorld and struggling not to have seizures immediately thereafter.  The carrot cake option contained two teams battling to remain relevant in the playoff chase this season, a victory or loss for each side already so important in this still young football season.  The winner's dreams of the tournament would stay viable, the loser sinking further into the sub-.500 abyss, and to that objective two gunslingers not unfamiliar to the pages of this ceremony would step.

Step immediately to it one did, but not the one being feted today.  Instead, it seemed as though Carson Palmer, forever the bridesmaid, might finally be able to step into the sunlight and grab what has seemed to be his on countless occasions previous.  A quick interception recorded a little over two minutes into the contest gave a sudden 16.7 score to the Arizona starter, and our man knew he'd have to work quick to overcome his opponent.

Instead, the job became a slog.  The farkups dueling in the darkness of a near total media blackout went to halftime tied at 16.7 a piece, only one pick per person.  The break came and went, possessions were traded, and still the deadlock continued.  The bullshiat in Washington thought they had some sort of a "shutdown," hah - this is serious business, and it seemed as though we happy few were cruising for some sort of nightmare 50.0 tiebreaker.

At once, the clouds seemed to part and a golden opportunity was at hand.  This week's hero was backed up against his own end zone, and it was blatantly obvious what to do.  One short play later, we could dance if we wanted to, we could leave our friends behind.  Because if they don't dance and if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine.

"Yes," this gunslinger thought as he landed with a thud in his own endzone, "finally it's all going my way!  This is only the beginning, let this flameout match THAT!"

Three minutes later, Palmer answered with a smirk and a "scoreboard," another pass to a Panther resulting in a 33.3 lighting up the numbers.  The fourth quarter began, and it seemed as if all might truly be lost.

One play into that final frame, though?  As quick as lightning, an interception tied it back up.  Some punts later?  Sack fumble.  An Arizona touchdown later?  Pick and a motherfarking victory formation for the Cardinals.  While the Cards offense might make Larry Fitzgerald think his pistol looks awfully sexy week after week, a solid defense flying under the radar made our champion's throws fly directly to them.

3 turnovers in 13 minutes, add it together with the first half pick, and what do you have?


i63.photobucket.com

You're  - well, take it away, Walt.

For showing us what's possible in the dark, for making the winner clear cut after it seemed like it wouldn't be, for recording a 66.7 against the Arizona Cardinals when much of America couldn't care less, I am proud to present The Jake for Week 5 of the 2013 NFL season to Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.

Sorry, but the supposed best team in the league shouldn't have a defense that's as horrific as the Broncos'.  Letting the opponent score 48 points should drop them behind the Saints or even the Chefs.

OK what I'm gonna need you to do here, is stop acting like I don't know that. I am aware that the timing of his mistake was very bad. However, I think a lot of people are overlooking a multitude of things that went on in that game. I know it's going to get attention. But I expect a LOT more honesty out of fark sports-tab fans.

The average chucklehead on facebook? Sure, I expect stupid memes & "herp derp Romo does it again." But from this crowd? No way. We are cool. We even have matching tattoos & leather jackets. And we know some football, dammit.

But degenerateafro looked at the stats and saw he had 99 yards so he must have been fine.  I think that's a misdiagnosis on the Falcons trainers part.

If Schaub played for Dallas, and was as heavily hyped as Romo was a few years ago (some of that hype remaining today), yeah, he'd get quadruple the amount of sh*t. And as you know, unlike any other team, the Cowboys are polarizing as all hell among fans even outside the NFC East. Anyone at their helm is doomed to harsh criticism a QB from a much smaller fan base and media interest wouldn't face (as much).

One team is right back where they started: Patriots

Change from last week to this week:
Two 6 point drops:Falcons & Dolphins
One 6 point jump: Eagles. Really?

Five teams did not change rank

Number of times rankings have changed:
1 team has changed once: Jaguars
13 teams have changed 5 times (max). Down from 16 teams last week who had moved the maximum number of times

Difference between high rank & low rank:
Lowest fluctuation:Jaguars, Broncos, & Patriots with 3
Highest fluctuation:Falcons with 20
Average fluctuation is 10.03

Most spots traveled: Eagles with 28

Teams hitting their highest rank this week:Colts, Saints, Chiefs, Browns, & Raiders
Teams hitting their lowest rank this week:Seahawks, Falcons, Texans, Giants, & Vikings

Shiat like this is why no one respects EsPN. Is the test "Can you win by a total of 40?" Otherwise that is perhaps the dumbest thing I've read on Power Rankings. The Chiefs are not only ranked highly on your poll, but they're also ACTUALLY good.

Man I love Doom and was sad to see him go.  But Phillips has played well and Ayers has been playing better making him at least average.  I think the biggest thing will be Von Chickenlover avoiding the hammy injury that seems to bite everyone that misses time due to holdout or suspension.

Since ESPN can't do this, let me.

The Oakland Raiders defense forced the Denver Broncos to punt. Multiple times.
The Dallas Cowboys defense did not force a single punt.

OAKLAND.

Why does Romo "ALWAYS" make the big mistake at the end of the game? Because he's ALWAYS in that position. 
The Dallas defense damn near lost to the Giants who had given up 5 turnovers. It took a team-wide Delhomme to ice that one. 

Romo is a great QB with a shiat defense. Every damn year. 
And I don't like the Cowboys.

I'm already sick of the Jets.
I never got a chance to be un-sick of them.

The only reason the were 'ranked' 32 was that it is better to be 32 than 25. Everyone talks about dead last. Who is talking about Carolina or Tampa Bay? 

The Jets weren't that bad, and they still aren't that good. The Tampa Bay game was a hose job by the refs, and Atlanta can't play defense. 

Reality: They're halfway to the season's win total.

SilentStrider: Eagles having the biggest jump surprises me. Yes they won, but it was against the Giants.


The part that freaks me out even more is the whole "tied for first place, with a credible shot at the playoffs because the whole division stinks" thing.
