Giving the devil his due, cannot hate Tampa death metal Tom at this point - I just wants of LOLs of them beating the Boys in the most hilarious way tonight. Modern football is largely about the schadenfreude at this point.

Sportsball feels frivolous in antebellum usa is how i break it down to an extent

Hunt3r, Thursday, 9 September 2021 16:00 (four months ago) link

ty earlnash for the new thread

I agree that following the NFL is frivolous, but no more so than following the MCU, streaming TV series, pop music, the poetry scene, or almost anything else featured on SNA right now

I'd enjoy seeing ILX's foobaw board maintain a little parity with the much-more-active MLB and hoops boards (not to mention the alarums and excursions on boards related to strange foreign sports)

so NFL schadenfreude yes please

don't get me started on the college game right now; I'm really not looking forward to 93,000 people from all over Georgia packing into Sanford Stadium this weekend with no mask or vaccine requirements

I guess it was a good game. I did as I often do and love about football, there was a kickoff and I zonked in the chair asleep and did not wake up until nearly 4 am.

Think it was much more fun to hate on the 'Boys when Romopaws was the QB, as I kinda like Dak and forever glad that his contract has finally been signed so ESPN radio can shut up about it (even though they STILL talk about it now in light of the injury).

That said, I think most ILNFL would agree that Romodamus is pretty fun in the announcing booth.

I think Drew Brees dyed his hair. That looked like a serious Grecian Formula job in the pregame.

its amazing with all the turnover in this league how some things always stay the same: Tom Brady always gets gifted a game-changing call (or no-call in this case) in crunch time, the Dallas Cowboys always find new ways to lose in the most excruciating way possible

Looking forward to catching a little of the Browns game. Not so much to watching my Bears get dismantled by Stafford on prime time week 1. It is going to be some Clockwork Orange can’t-look-away shit.

Matt Nagy just went for it on 4th-and-15 down 13 while in FG range with 11 minutes on the clock

probably the right call but that's definitely something you would never have seen half a decade ago. I would've called something that actually got the ball past the line though

frogbs, Monday, 13 September 2021 02:42 (four months ago) link

I don't see why the Bears are starting with Dalton. I think this is pretty much all you're gonna get with him. They liked Fields enough to trade up for him and this defense doesn't look like it's gonna stop anybody right now

frogbs, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 03:47 (four months ago) link

for those of you not watching the Raiders just threw what looked like a game winning TD in overtime - players were already shaking hands at midfield - but it turned out to be like 18 inches short. they run it to the 3 inch line or whatever on 1st down, then commit a false start (LOL) then on 3rd down it slips through a receivers hands and doinks off someone's helmet and now the Ravens are going for the win

Giants really fucked that though, they needed a first down and not only was that route short of it, fucker dropped it anyway.

gave Washington the equivalent of 2 timeouts to get a field goal.

my mom is a Giants fan and is screaming at the Giants right now.

it's ridiculous how they have kept shooting themselves in the foot tonight. that was ballgame there.

Washington sure af shouldn't act cocky after this one though, they played like shit defensively and benefitted from playing a much stupider team

you had me at "giallo" (Neanderthal), Friday, 17 September 2021 03:43 (four months ago) link

in retrospect dropping a wide open touchdown wound up costing the Giants big time

two extremely goofy NFL games in a row

symsymsym, Friday, 17 September 2021 05:28 (four months ago) link

Lions really played an entertaining game, they pulled out every trick in the book and most of 'em worked (the fake punt was a good throw too, just broken up). Cost themselves the #1 pick, but at least the fans got a show.

In other news, fucking pathetic performance by the Colts, who just needed to win vs. Jacksonville to get into the playoffs and instead got throttled by a team that lost by 40 last week. Should make tonight's game interesting since a tie would put both the Raiders and the Chargers in the playoffs but I don't think they have the balls to actually go through with it. Meaning that...yep...Pittsburgh is gonna be a playoff team. Super Bowl baby!!!

frogbs, Sunday, 9 January 2022 21:47 (one week ago) link

I bet 75 on Miami to win straight up. So far I'm happy

They’re giving Mac a rough time but I’m sure it’ll be nerve racking at the end

If I make double my investment and get a winning season I'll be happy

actually turned out to be the right call :o

were we expecting the dolphins to fire brian flores???

mookieproof, Monday, 10 January 2022 14:40 (one week ago) link

at mid-season, I'd say yeah, I thought he was safe once he had won 8 out of his last 9 games.

On the one hand, he definitely did some head-scratchy things as a head coach strategically, and during that 7 game losing streak, it was inexplicable how the team seemed unable to fix issues week to week, esp since it was apparent the team was much better talent-wise than their record indicated.

but on the other hand, since Grier (the GM) wasn't fired, there's talk that maybe his resistance to some of Grier's draft picks/attempt to get Deshaun Watson lead to it.

Amazing that they leave the GM that drafted an offensive line that boasts 4 of the 5 worst linemen in the league with his job intact.

i assumed that would've preceded a pursuit of jim harbaugh, but apparently he's not on their list of targets for whatever reason

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Monday, 10 January 2022 15:02 (one week ago) link

knowing us we will probably pursue a first-time coach that nobody else is interested in and coached in Arena Football or some shit

you obviously know much more about them than i do but they’re two seasons removed from one of the most blatant tank jobs in nfl history and have had back-to-back winning seasons. they’ve done well against the pats

idk! i guess it depends on who they hire now but i’m skeptical it’ll be an improvement? at least it probably won’t be matt patricia

mookieproof, Monday, 10 January 2022 15:16 (one week ago) link

all these guys fired while apparently joe judge will get another season, yikes

mookieproof, Monday, 10 January 2022 15:20 (one week ago) link

my Fins don't ever do anything that sets them up for success in the future, so I'm skeptical too. wouldn't be surprised if we step backwards next year now. yay.

lol at Judge keeping his job, he's legit a terrible coach and his fanbase basically wants his head on a pike.

frogbs, Monday, 10 January 2022 15:40 (one week ago) link

I feel like Flores will get a chance somewhere else

well turn out the lights on the Mike Zimmer/Chris Spielman era

will overall look back fondly on Zimmer, will definitely miss his crusty old school demeanor in press conferences

was a solid run overall, but I felt like when we didn't get to the Super Bowl after the Minneapolis Miracle that was his shot and when that didn't happen it was just going to be the long decline

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 10 January 2022 15:46 (one week ago) link

I mean, he wasn't fault-free, but our fanbase is terrible and ownership seems to do the same kneejerk shit our fanbase wants. we run players out of town who are actually good and go on to great careers with other teams, and Tua has been basically deemed "not the answer" since he took his first snap last year.

for years it was "Ryan Tannehill isn't an elite qb". guess what? Only like 3-5 QBs will ever be ELITE at a time, hence the word "elite". 2nd tier QBs can still play very well and win! ffs Joe Flacco won a super bowl! and now Tannehill is going to the playoffs....again. and is doing well in Tennessee, and our fans are acting shocked.

we'll run Tua out of town too and he'll be a next level player somewhere, I'm sure of it. probably for a division rival.

also the first time Miami had back to back winning seasons in 19 years. but hey, Stephen Ross doesn't gaf. also doesn't mind pursuing a rapist QB (which I"m praying he doesn't do again)

Zimmer's a bummer, but I felt like it was a forgone conclusion this year.

really hoping Vikings can get their SB ring sooner than later, fanbase deserves it.

appreciate that, but not holding my breath

I honestly wouldn't be mad if they looked into Flores

but sounds like they will hire a GM first and let them do the hire which is really the right way to do it

I don't think you could've? What do you hedge with, betting a lot of money on the Raiders moneyline and a lot on the Chargers moneyline? Wouldn't those just cancel each other out?

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Monday, 10 January 2022 21:16 (one week ago) link

xpost I would literally win the lottery and pay Grier not to take Watson at this point.

also because of the fucking bullshit way the media and Miami has treated Tua, who seems to be subject to a different set of standards than most other QBs. like did he murder a lot of dogs or something

xpost yeah a parlay = "all of these things have to happen for you to win", not something you could revisit once OT started. Most sportsbooks have a Cashout feature if your outcome is likely but you don't want to risk waiting for end of game, but I don't think that would be allowed in the case of OT, where it's far more likely someone will score than not.

True but this game did have a particularly unusual dynamic. When it got down to 3 minutes I honestly thought they may just kneel it to prevent a turnover. But I guess getting to play Cincinnati instead of KC is worth the risk.
