Turkey Season

One by one, the 2010 season is ending around the NFL. Buffalo and Carolina cashed out early. Then came Dallas, Detroit, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. Minnesota, Denver, and Houston all sputtered to the side of the road and coughed out this past weekend. Miami and Tennessee are hanging by a thread. But out here in the NFC West, where no team is above .500, no team is yet el butt kissola.

This raging drama will produce it’s first knock out victim this coming weekend when the Cardinals host our beloved home town egg layers on Monday night in Glendale. Loser goes home and winner goes on being a loser for another week or so.

Fans in St. Louis and Seattle are thrilled to be in this sizzling cold play off race, but Arizona and San Francisco fans are mostly embarrassed. “Please don’t look at me. I’m ugly” would about describe it. But we could win! “I don’t want to win. I want to hide.”

49er fans have definitely quit on the team and Mike Singletary. Loud and clear. It’s unclear whether the players have also thrown in the towel, though last Sunday’s Bucs game may have been a clue. The second half effort by the team was not scintillating with team wide effort. Three players have now openly snarled at the coaching, and two of these three are team captains — Alex Smith and Vernon Davis. The third is the starting quarterback, Troy Smith.

Davis’ criticism is the most telling, since he has been pretty much the teacher’s pet in the Singletary era and was the most visible off season face of the franchise. If Singletary loses him, the bottom could fall out in a hurry. We’ve seen in Dallas this year what can happen to a team that hits the ignore button on its head coach.

It happened to some degree in Minnesota, but that collapse first began when Brett Farve showed up old and useless for a season he should never have played. Hahaha. There’s always something you can enjoy in a football season. Eat it, Brett. Adios, tractor brain. Get ready for a long cold winter as your wife gives you the freeze out for your Tiger-esque cell phone escapades.

Just kidding, Brett (hmm, just lying). Hope everything works out for you (more lies). Get well and live a long, happy life on the farm (lies, lies, outrageous lies). Please don’t come back and haunt us as an announcer (finally, the truth). In fact, buzz off and disappear (now we’re getting there).

Hey, wow, my battery light just flickered on. There’s a blip in my flatline. There’s three games on the tube tomorrow. There’s turkey you can eat instead of watch. Have a good one out there, Outsider types. I may take tomorrow off. Unless I feel like talking more gobble-D-gook.

    Happy Thanksgiving Outsiders. I could just imagine John Madden doing one of our Thanksgiving games today. He’d be pulling legs off his Turducken instead of adding six more. Our sorry sack of stench doesn’t deserve such delectables. Nothing but the soup kitchen for them. On second thought, screw that. “No soup for you!”

    Rufus, I think you are safe. I doubt you would ever say something somebody else would want to repeat. Skeebs has lots of repeatables. So does NoFear but he gets made when you use his stuff! I tell him to quit coming up with good struff and I won’t use it. BTW, weren’t we supposed to get more Fotos today?

  8. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Oops, I meant to say NoFear gets mad. I doubt Mr NoFear would ever get made.
