You stink…Houston Texans
It blows my mind how well the Packers did last night. This was by far their best performance of the season from both an offensive and defensive perspective. The old Aaron Rodgers returns, throwing six TD passes; Jordy Nelson gets three of those. The receivers were on top of their game (Is Donald Driver still a member of this team? I could have sworn Jarrett Boykin got more playing time than DD did last night!) You got a solid run game from Alex Green against one of the highly touted defenses in the league. Amid the fear that the offense was taking a nose-dive, Rodgers and company literally ‘Shhhhhhushed’ critics and fans.
The Packers’ defense flourished throughout the game, getting to Matt Schaub early. Jerel Worthy and Casey Hayward shined as rookies. A.J. Hawk continues to be defensively sound, as he led the team in tackles and made another big sack. Considering the fact that Matt Schaub threw the ball to a myriad of wide receivers, the Packers’ secondary did a solid job preventing Schaub’s most popular targets – Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels – from big scores.
I think we can all agree that this game should have been much closer. The Texans did not show up to play football last night. As for the Texans’ run game, that might have been one of their most pathetic performances. Although he was coming off a small knee injury, Arian Foster was due for a bad game. Give a lot of credit to the Packers’ front seven stopping the run…
You suck…Washington Nationals AND St. Louis Cardinals
Watching the game from a local bar in K-town, I knew the Cards were going to rally once Carlos Beltran led off with that double in the ninth. Sure enough, four runs later, the Cardinals had the lead and an NLCS bid in their grasp.
The Nationals obviously suck for several reasons. First, you guys blew a six run lead early in the game. Secondly, had Stephen Strasburg pitched this series, you guys should have been guaranteed a trip to the NLCS. Third, your bullpen decides to blow it up in Game 5 (can someone tell me why Edwin Jackson pitched the 7th?). I understand why Tyler Clippard wasn’t the closer – his month of September was God-awful. Drew Storen’s numbers have been outstanding as a reliever this season, but his implosion in the 9th had to have taught him a valuable postseason lesson.
Perhaps they will rethink shutting down players in the future…
If you’re a true Brewers fan, then you should loathe the St. Louis Cardinals. As much as the Cardinals won Game 5 fair and square, they will always suck in my book. This is strictly bias as you know. Can someone knock them out already? C’mon, San Fran! I don’t want to see these guys win back-to-back World Series. The Cardinals continue to be a winning cancer in baseball. You can’t get rid of them!
You’re the worst!...Big Ten Football!
There’s not one Big Ten team in the latest top 25 BCS Rankings? What an embarrassment…
In a conversation with Matt Regashus the other day, we both agreed that this is the worst we’ve ever seen from the Big Ten. You have two teams suspended from the Big Ten Championship and bowl games. Teams like Michigan, Michigan State, and yes, Wisconsin, were suppose to be the front runners in this conference. Instead, there’s a Legends Division practically up for grabs at this point. Meanwhile, the Leaders Division ought to be called the Leftovers Division with Ohio State and Penn State already exiled from contention.
Fortunate to be in the Leftovers Division, Wisconsin has stepped things up as of late, but looking at their remaining schedule, there’s only one ranked team (Ohio State) that they face. Good luck cracking the Top 25 even if the Badgers were to win the rest of their games. Let’s say for the sake of argument the Badgers actually do make it to Indy and win the Big Ten Championship. Is it a fair statement that the Badgers were the best of the worst in the Big Ten?
Big Ten Football has always been a Midwest tradition of excellence. While they may never get to SEC status, this is where football lives, eats, breathes, and sleeps. Some of the most passionate and obsessive football fans come from the Midwest. The performance of these 12 teams is a sure slap in the face to everybody who bleeds for college football every Saturday. I’m ashamed the Big Ten has reached an all-time low. Its repercussions could echo for seasons to come. While this conference lies in shambles, the SEC, Big 12, ACC, and Pac 12 all continue to get stronger.
There’s no question Big Ten Football is clearly the worst and most disappointing conference in college football.
