Week 5 Short NFL Recap – Sponsored by Ryan Mallett going to get hot dogs, nachos, and popcorn for everybody!

Hey he might as well have. The guy plays terrible (as I outlined in my NFL schedule post) and gets pissy when he’s taken out of the game? Please. Either go try out for the CFL or stop pouting and play better next time.

I will be honest, I was watching but not watching football for the better part of Sunday (and Monday night). Part of watching college football for the better part of 14 hours on Saturday means I got sweet fuck all done on Saturday. This carries over to Sunday where, thanks to Thanksgiving, I have to cram in a workout and grocery shopping along with all the other things I had to during the day. My kids were coming Monday morning and I didn’t want to be doing work around the house all day so that they could stay inside. I know, excuses, excuses. I don’t give a shit. So most of this is from watching highlights and listening to talking heads talk like they know what’s going on. Sound good? OK, let’s proceed.

Buffalo is fun to watch! I’ve said it before and I will say it again…the Bills are a fun team to watch. They barely made out with the win against a pretty shitty Titans team. And their fans continue to want to hurt each other (or grope each other). Fun times. And no, Tyrod Taylor isn’t there yet but the way he has played this season would put him in the top half of starting QBs in the league easy.

The Bengals are legit! Redheaded stepchild Andy Dalton has somehow steered the Bengals ship to a perfect 5-0 start. Guaranteed there are still people out there that would say “Hurr Durr, but dey arnt da Patriotz, duh” and that’s fine but at some point people are going to have to say the Bengals would be a tough out in the playoffs.

The Falcons…that’s a different story. They look good in spurts. But no way should they have even had to go to OT against a terrible Redskins organization (not just team). They’ll win the NFC South or grab a Wild Card spot because the Saints and Bucs are really bad.

So the Bears aren’t the worst. We have to give that title to the Chiefs. Man they look awful. They break that ridiculous streak and still can’t look good. Maybe Andy Reid wants to coach at USC.

Or maybe it’s Baltimore. They haven’t looked good. They’ve kept in games but still. At some point they should have come out on top more than once. Maybe John Harbaugh wants to coach at USC.

No, it’s Detroit. How could I forget about the Lions? Geez they are terrible. Matthew Stafford is being exposed as pretty terrible now. I mean you have to be able to throw the ball to Megatron to use him properly.

And again the late games are full of disappointment. I don’t know how this phenomenon is occurring since the NFL can’t control this. But the 4:00 (or 4:05 or 4:25 or whatever) games have, for the most part, been disappointing. I guess this is what happens when you have, at most, 4 games on at that time and many more on earlier in the day.

At least the Sunday and Monday nighters were exciting. Two games between mediocre teams ended up being VERY exciting for the fans. Kind of feel bad for the Niners since they were close there but they need to start thinking about who they will be picking for their high draft choice (a quarterback…draft a quarterback) in the spring.

There we go. Short and sweet and to the point. College football schedule coming out tomorrow with the NFL one on Friday (although 60% of the time, the NFL schedule is out before the college schedule 100% of the time).
