Yes mama, that's exactly what we're doing. God help us all.
"What abouts the social justice warrying?"
"I care not for what may pass for thoughts in the mind of the gladiator or what idiocy may pass his lips. His job is to bleed to amuse me. The world is ending so what does it matter? Go ahead and curse me, mama, you can't hurt me, my nerves have burned away."
"Wow, chill out!"
"Lets ask my dear little Myles Garret what he thinks. Myles, what do you think about current events?"
"Is that a netflix show or a hulu? I can never get the dum dum fancy remote to work. Why is everying on a stream now? I liked it when there was channels."
"Well, what do you think of Joe Biden?"
"Is he a Quarterback? I like it when I make Quarterbacks go ouchy. He's the backup on the Redskins, right? Oh I'm sorry I mean the Native American Indian Skins. I'll put him in my sack."
"Well anyway, I'd like to congraulate our playoff teams, joining us today will be the Coach of the AFC East Champion Buffalo Bills, Sean McDermott, how's it going Sean?"
"I didn't realize Sean McDermott looked exactly like Bill Belichick."
"Hey, that is Belichick! What are you doing here Coach? You guys didn't make the playoffs."
"Yes, we did."
"I'm pretty sure you didn't."
"Congress certified that we did. I cleary heard Mike Pence say 'AFC East Champs are New England, like ALWAYS. Buffalo sucks.'"
I don't think he said that.
"I have a court order from John Roberts saying the scoreboard malfunctioned in 9 of our games, we are actually 16-0 even with Cam Newton under center. Such is the power of the dark side."
"Can I see that order?"
"No. It's in the pocket of my other pants."
I hope you didn't do something to coach McDermont.
"Relax, he was sort of breathing when I left. Damnit, I don't know what went wrong!".
Losing Tom Brady?
"But I sacrificed 50 virgins to make up for that. I should have made it a hundred but they're hard to come by in Boston. Why has the dark lord forsaken me?"
Blew his wad helping someone else......
Let me know if you want on/off the list
Sorry for the delay, wrapped up with this stuff going on the last few days,
I want to thank Secretary State of Mmichaels1970 for counting the votes for our picks contest. Couldn't have done it without you.
Congrats to our Wins Champ Ro_dreaming, 180 wins!
And to our Percentage Champ, Red Badger, 72% correct!
Thanks everyone for playing.
As per tradition the playoffs are a clean slate and a new picks contest! Anyone is welcome to make picks. I'm sorry I'm not giving you much time to make your picks. Get your picks in!
this is the year they change the number of playoff games from 11 to 13 by eliminating the second BYE so they can add another wild card team in each conference.
seven out of 16 teams in each conference play. Why even have a regular season?
Some general thoughts. Bills should take it. It should be a pass heavy game. I'm not strong on Seahawks, but it should be a Lockett day. Washington's defense might give Brady fits, but he has the running game to help with passing and should pull it off. It should be a Derek Henry day and Titans should win. It's another game I'm guessing more than anything else. I have to believe that Kamara will be available and Brees still has enough personnel to pass to so it's Saints. Steelers have Conner for their running game and they will have passing ability. Browns have Chubb and WR Landry, but I have to give it to Steelers anyway. So, that's it. Wise people will read my picks and take the opposite.
Man that Bills team just has that look of something special one Hail Marry pass from winning their last 9 games and some games literally destroying the competition
Brady looks like a good bet
Ravens in revenge from last year
Steelers cause they actually care about this one
Taking the Bears cause Nick Foles becomes Joe Montana in playoffs
Take the Seachickens cause I don’t know
Los Angeles Rams
I am going with this. Thanks impy and Michaels for a great fun season.
I won’t be watching but why are the Washington Deadsins at 7-9 hosting the Tampa Bay Bucs at 11-5. That game should be played in Tampa but winning a division gets a team privileges like a corrupt politician. I like the Alex Smith and Ron Rivera comeback stories but eff the WFT and Dan Snyder for caving into the Woke crowd and ditching the Redskins name. Call them the Washington RINO’s —- perfect for their DC Crapital home.
Thanks for the humor.., Humor is a Powerful Tool
(pls add me to your ping list)
Los Angeles Rams
I knew a guy that had a pet badger. I don’t think he ever considered it a therapy animal though.
That’s because they don’t care.....................
My cousin is smiling somewhere!!
