Good thing I didn't talk about the Vikings/Packers game in my post because Madeline had a LOT to say.
Allen: Atlanta Falcons
"I was working today and caught only painful bits of the Falcons' latest debacle. I have nothing specific to contribute about the game, but am currently wondering what I did in this life or a former one to deserve to be a Falcons fan. Argh."
At least your team brought us a new iteration of Manningface?
In an email sent Sunday: "The Dolphins are on a bye. So I will only be watching for fantasy today. Madeline is still glowing from Thursday, so good luck to the rest of you suckers! May Jeremy Maclin and Dez Bryant score all of your TDs."
Dez and Jeremy both say you're welcome.
Madeline: Green Bay Packers
"Yay to Chicago and the Lions losing this week! Also yay to them absolutely imploding. Really, Lions kicker? Way to blow that game. I will also neither confirm nor deny that my fantasy team that I share with my brother had both these kickers. I mean, how stupid would you have to be...
Speaking of stupid. Stupid F'ing Niners fans. I mean, come on. If this doesn’t show that most Niners fans are absolutely bandwagon, there to network, care-more-about-their-wine fans, I don’t know what will. This is the start of the second half. Where the F are the fans? Some said it was because it was hot. My God, grow a pair.
Oh, and this was a nice moment:
Lauren: Dallas Cowboys
"Did anyone actually watch the Cowboys game? I'll save all my ranting since they actually won (god bless them), but I will tell you that during their final drive of regulation in which ALL THEY NEEDED was a 1st down to end the game, they managed to get a delay of game penalty on the play immediately following a Houston time out. Really stop and think about that one for a minute...."
Makeda: Philadelphia Eagles
Oh, I sure as hell am not saving my ranting just because my team won. The Eagles are a fucking mess. Our offense can't do ANYTHING. I know, I know, offensive line injuries, whatever, I DON'T CARE. Stop trying to run Shady up the middle. It's not going to work. He's just going to run up and down in the backfield for a cumulative gain of one. And then our defense, after carrying the team for two games, decides to resurrect the time-honored Eagles tradition of not playing the fourth quarter. How do you go up 34-7 with two minutes left in the third and then almost lose to a team led by AUSTIN DAVIS?! We made that guy look like an offensive god. This is the kind of shit that makes me think we're going to lose to the Giants next week. The New York Football Goddamn Giants.
