Sandwich sure looked better than the pick from last night JTG. Thanks.
Six NFL head coaches who got fired after short tenures; all six had better records than the 10-31 mark the Rams have under their current coach
-- Eric Mangini was 23-26 in three years with the Jets; 10-22 in couple of years in Cleveland- he got fired in both places.
-- Redskins fired Steve Spurrier and Jim Zorn, both after two seasons with a 12-20 record. 12-20 is a lot better than 10-31.
-- Rams fired Rich Brooks after he went 13-19 in 1995-96; he was a good coach, too. Imaginative. Wound up getting to the Super Bowl with Atlanta as defensive coordinator, then coached the Kentucky Wildcats.
-- Oakland fired Bill Callahan after he went 17-18 in two years; he got canned a year after winning the AFC Championship.
-- Gunther Cunningham went 16-16 coaching the Chiefs in 1999-2000, but he got fired. How do you fire a guy with a .500 record?
-- Josh McDaniels went 11-17 in 2009-10 coaching the Broncos, but he started out 6-0. Unfortunately, the Rams hired him as a coordinator, and he's been a disaster. Thats 7-25 for McDaniels in his last 32 NFL games. When the Rams fire their head coach, McDaniels should go with him.
Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up an NFL Sunday.........
13) Bears won their fifth game in row; Chargers lost their fifth straight tilt, but Chicago lost Jay Cutler to a broken right thumb; all you fantasy guys, go get Caleb Hanie. No one coaches up backup QBs like Mike Martz..
12) 49ers had five more takeaways Sunday, are now +17 in turnovers this season; they've won/covered their last eight games and could clinch NFC West title next weekend, mainly because the other three teams stink. But give San Francisco credit; they're doing all the little things right.
11) Carolina led 24-7 at Ford Field with 3:00 left before halftime, wound up getting beat 49-35 by the Lions, who scored TDs on all six drives in the Carolina red zone. Panthers are lot more fun to watch this year, but 2-8 is still not good. Not good at all.
10) Green Bay is 10-0; their next two games are Detroit, at the Giants, as season begins to wind down. After that, Pack has visits from Oakland, the Bears and a rematch with Detroit, and a visit to Kansas City. Next couple weeks are their two toughest tests left.
9) There was a streak alive going into this weekend where a Miami alumni had scored an NFL TD for 149 straight regular season weeks; Winslow had a touchdown nullified by a penalty for the Bucs. Not sure if a Hurricane alumnus scored or not this weekend. Just under nine years; thats really an impressive stat that espn.com came up with.
8) How about the Raiders and Carson Palmer? 162 rushing yards in their 27-21 win; Raiders overcame the standard 12 penalties for 117 yards, and are in first place in AFC West. Whomever made the Palmer trade should be NFL Executive of the Year. .
7) Favorites are 5-6-2 so far this week; home teams were 7-4-2. Over was 6-7. NFC won two of three games against the AFC. There were 66 TDs scored the offense this week; 26 of the 66 came on drives of less than 50 yards. Turnovers/kicking game/3rd downs give teams short fields to work on, which seems the only way teams score TDs nowadays. .
6) For instance, Seattle scored three TDs in St Louis Sunday; they came on drives of 40-25-21 yards, as the inept Ram offense couldn't move the ball. Seahawks started nine drives on their side of the 50, and scored 3 points. More games are lost than won; the Rams lost to Seattle because they can't block the other team. Simple as that.
5) So far, Week 11 has seen the 2nd-best red zone offense of any week this season, with teams scoring 4.94 yards/red zone drive. Last week was the worst week this season for red zone production.
4) Miami was 0-7, but hasn't allowed a TD in their last three games and are now 3-7 after hammering the slumping Bills 35-8. You look at those close games the Dolphins lost (by 3-1-3 points) and they could easily be 6-4.
3) Giants haven't played Dallas yet, which means they play twice in the last five weeks of the season, which will decide the NFC East title.
2) DeSean Jackson negated a 60-yard completion by getting a taunting flag thrown on him in front of the Giants' bench; a grievous error that will not go over well with Andy Reid, whenever he decides to implement discipline on his star receiver. An amazingly selfish play that cost his team in a close game. Eagles have a problem with Jackson right now.
1) Should've played the over in Cincinnati-Baltimore as soon as I heard that Ray Lewis was out; Bengals gained 483 yards but turned ball over three times. Baltimore scored TDs on both drives that started in Bengals' territory, drives of 2-38 yards. Short drives like that win games.
Rex Ryan - I wonder if he's on the hot seat at all? The internet loves him (rightfully so) but he has hitched his fatwagon to a terrible QB (that Cowherd will defend until the bitter end). Someone is going to have to take the fall here for the Jets shitty season. I hope it's not Rex.
Tim Tebow? - Everyone seems to be on one side of the fence here. You're either "He sucks" or "He just wins". I'm in the latter. He is fucking brutal to watch but if for some reason that game is still close going into the 4th, he's going to win. You need to do what the Lions did and kill them early. One thing I noticed, ALL of his teammates fucking love the guy. I do, too. 4-1, faggots. Haters going to Hell.
Ravens fans - Next time that Baltimore is on and playing at home (like say Thursday night), look at the crowd and find one non-faggot in the stands. I bet you can't do it. It's like finding a non-tard at a Steelers game.
Minnesota Vikings - I was asking the dog this yesterday when the RedZone went to the OAK/MIN game: is there a more irrelevant franchise than the Vikings? I feel like they're the Houston Astros of football. No one cares either way about the Vikes. And Adrian Peterson got hurt which makes them even more worthless.
The guy who OK'ed 59 million for Ryan Fitzpatrick - First things first, get rid of the beard already, Harvard-o. That clearly isn't working any magic. You see, here's the other part. Fitz CLEARLY looks like he always has now and isn't a franchise QB like he fooled Ralph Wilson into believing for 6 weeks. But now, with all sorts of sick QBs available in the Draft, they can't take one! Awful. The Bills are going to end up cutting that guy within the next 3 years.
Dolphins sick? - Also amusing that Matt Moore is ensuring himself of a job next year! He's fucking Marc Anthony out of a real QB with every pointless win! Hey bitch, the Skins just passed you!!!
AJ Hawk - Because I want to blame someone for allowing LeGarrette Blount to go all BEAST MODE on the run of the year. The Packers defense sort of sucks balls. Whatever, they're 10-0 (hopefully 10-1 after Thanksgiving).
Cam Newton - And the slide continues...at least he has a pretty smile.
Blaine Gabbert - He has no accuracy and couldn't even beat the Browns. The Browns fucking blow by the way. Never forget that.
Phil Dawson - Good job complaining about a field goal that you CLEARLY missed. He still eats his own (and other people's) boogers. I am sure of this.
Graham GaNOT - Cant imagine what it's like to have decades worth of brutal kickers. The last Redskins kicker that anyone had any confidence in was Chip Lohmiller in the early 90's. That's not good. And this faggot missed two field goals that would have beat the Cowboys. I hope someone burns down his house.
Rob Ryan - I like the guy but he is SO DISGUSTING. There is no way that he's showered since 2004. His defense gave up a rushing touchdown to Rex Grossman and a receiving TD to Donte Stallworth. In 2011.
All of the late games - Just terrible. Jake Locker looked pretty good though. The Chargers are done. That was a bad slate of late games.
I think that that's going to do it for me this week.
