Who Dey?

Apparently 11 teams got it in their heads that they was gonna beat dem Bengals.  I haven't read much on the 'ol weblogesphere this year about the local "professional" football team.  I don't really want to go on about those fellas...I just wanted to throw it out there.  It's still a silly cheer (as is waving a yellow kitchen's just not quite as silly).  And this isn't a swipe towards all of the "wait til next year" talk after the Super Bowl a few years ago, and after the Steelers beat up on the locals the last couple of's just a thought.

I still don't understand how they can have a vote for the pro bowl before the season ends.  If there's a close call between two players and it goes to the one guy...and the other guy has 17 tackles (four of them for a loss) an interception and a fumble recovery all on the last game....well...that kind of stinks, huh?
This is another reason that baseball is screwed up (way behind the designated hitter).  The all star game is nothing more than a popularity contest based on offensive output.  It's in the middle of the year, one dimensional and sad.  The Pro Bowl is a bit better...but I still think they should have picked the team this week.  The MVP awards should be renamed - The best Quarterback or Running Back Award.  If defense wins championships, it could stand to reason that the best player on a defense will do more to affect the outcome of a game than the quarterback or running back...doesn't it?

So the Steelers are back in the playoffs...again...ho hum...Big Ben is hurt and he has an awful record when he's coming back from an injury.  They have a great record against one of the toughest schedules this year, but I'm still a bit nervous about their line.


  1. Santa brought me a new terrible towel this year that showcases each of the 5 Superbowls the Steelers have won. It is fantastic.

  2. I'm still trying to figure out the "terrible towel". Because the towel is terrible? Because it's a terrible idea? Because Hines Ward makes terrible blocks that end seasons? Because of the terrible hit on Carson's leg?

    If anything, maybe the Bengal fans should wave terrible towels. At least it would be fitting.

  3. it's sad that there is one receiver in the league that's willing to block and people don't understand the game enough to appreciate how downfield blocking turns 7 yard gains into touchdowns...
    and the Bengals can wave towels this coming week in the pl....oh yeah, I forgot...never mind

    (see what I did there?)

  4. I can't wait to stomp on Liz's new terrible towel.

  5. as a disgruntled pats fan all i can say is farve sucks

  6. how 'bout dem eagles?
