Finally, James Richard Clausen faces an NFL defense in the Pittsburgh Steelers. That stupid performance last week still has me a little bitter. Good job on that 1 TD against Arizona, but welcome back to the NFL. (I Just wish Troy and his damn hair were playing, but I should still be fine.)
Defensively, I took the aging, flat out broken Minnesota team. The adversary has pulled the trigger on Buffalo’s D and
Matt Hasslebeck. I have no idea what he’s thinking, tampa’s defense is full of no names at this point. Kerry Collins.
Some thoughts on some of the available talent this week:
John Skelton: Could be the way to go, but Dallas gives up a ton of points. However, never count out how inexperienced this kid is though and, as stated earlier, he’s playing with a defense that Jimmy Clausen managed to throw a TD on.
Joe Webb: Could be a very strong pick vs. Philly, but he’s got some wheels. Risk it if you want.
Mark Sanchez: I apologize for putting this image in everyone’s head, I know I spent a few hours yesterday staring at the sun trying to get it out of mine, but will Rex Ryan’s foot fetish videos affect this team? Hard to imagine it won’t, could be a massive distraction for Sanchez.
Jay Culter: Again, I apologize for putting this image in everyone’s head, I know I spent several hours yesterday looping the last 10 minutes of A Clockwork Orange trying to get it out of mine, but will Rex Ryan’s foot fetish videos be something the Jets actually rally around? You know Culter is good for 4 picks every few games, is this it?
Rex Grossman: Can that streak of one good game in the last 10 years be improved upon?
All this said, we certainly believe in respecting people’s privacy. Uploading your sex videos to You Tube is the opposite of that. Of course, this is news that will affect the games this week, so it’s going to come up. And as the adversary so wisely pointed out, if you’re going to put your stuff on You Tube, you should be laughing along with the rest of us. Should be interesting to see how the Jets react.
As I watch the Thursday night game, Carolina has had the ball on offense maybe 4 minutes in the first 3 quarters. However Jimmy Clausen is making the most (least) of it, hanging at -2.60 at the moment, leading (not leading) his team to a 20-0 deficit. Bob Papa just made the following comment: “Let’s see if Carolina can make the Steelers pay for going for it on 4th down.”
I SHOULD let Matt Millen make a few more points before I vote that the dumbest comment in the history of the universe, but it’s getting late.
