Unlike Everyone Else, The 15-7-0 Remains Undefeated

7 Not So Positive Observations…

1. I guess the New York Giants just had absolutely no interest in winning the NFC East?

I mean, is there any other way to explain being swept by the Washington Redskins, including a THUMPING Sunday at MetLife Stadium?

Here’s a nice hit leveled by London Fletcher on Giants TE Bear Pascoe. I include it because I enjoy the fact that the dude is named “Bear Pascoe”…

The Giants fall behind the Cowboys but still control their own destiny. They beat the Jets and the Cowboys, they win the NFC East. How confident are you in that happening today, Giants fan?

2. Drew Forrester’s “cleat of reality” came to visit the Houston Texans Sunday.

You knew there would be a point where T.J. Yates’ heroics couldn’t continue. With Wade Phillips away from the Texans, it made sense that game would come against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.

By the way, the Ravens have been struggling this season in the red zone. Is it time for them to consider the Fumblerooski???

3. And to think, things had been going so well at Penn State until QB Matt McGloin got beat up by a teammate Saturday.

The story is that the Nittany Lions QB suffered seizures after a post-practice fight with WR Curtis Drake. McGloin said after the game the fight was entirely his fault, so I guess that wraps that up, now doesn’t it?

I’d say this story was the worst of the weekend, but I’d be completely ignoring the fact that Dennis Rodman played a basketball game looking like this…

4. The St. Louis Rams are an absolute disaster.

Kellen Clemens played QB for the Rams in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. This answers the question “is Kellen Clemens still in the NFL?”

Oh and Cincy is now tied with the Jets for the final playoff spot in the AFC. That means their final game (a home game against the Ravens) will mean a lot to them. AJ Green is banged up but says he’ll keep playing. Good news all around, gang!

And here’s a video of Rams lineman Harvey Dahl getting called for holding. If you enjoy the F-bomb, you’ll enjoy the video. (If you don’t, you won’t!)

5. I guess it’s an epidemic in New Jersey, as the New York Jets didn’t look particularly interested in making the AFC playoffs Sunday either.

I warned you last week that the Philadelphia Eagles were still alive in the NFC East. I warned you.

They’re still chocked full of talent.

I’d rather not see the Jets in the playoffs. But I’d rather not see any of the good teams in the playoffs. The Rolling Stones told me I can’t always get what I want.

6. It has absolutely nothing to do with Western Pennsylvania, but I hate the fact that Pittsburg State won the D2 championship.

Also winning championships this weekend were Wisconsin-Whitewater (D3) and St. Xavier (NAIA).

Speaking of the Steel City, it’s time to learn this song QUICKLY.

Go you San Francisco 49ers, go!!!

7. You mean to tell me Rudy Ruettiger scammed people out of $11 million? Thank God I still have Santa Claus to look up to.

It’s a terrible story, learning “Rudy” scammed people out of money for energy drink stock.

Speaking of the big man, here’s a video involving model Kelly Brook and the song “Here Comes Santa Claus.” It goes exactly how I want it to.

I hope this video came out AFTER Kim Jong-Il died. I don’t want to imagine a possibility that he was able to enjoy it.

And my “oh no” moment from outside the world of football…

“Oh no, there’s no way I can not share this video of John Daly singning “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”

God bless you John Daly. I was going to go with the buzzer beater from Butler’s Andrew Smith, or something about the Orioles signing Endy Chavez…but this…this is way better.
