Football Friday: On Arena League in NFL, the Tomahawk Chop, and Sexy Sandwiches

Nothing Like Good Ol' Fashioned Racism On a Saturday Night (Okla-FSU, 8pm)

Anyways a couple of observations before I give you your mancave set-up for this weekend.

This Face...Should Never Throw For 400 Yards

1. Is it just me, or is the NFL turning into Arena League football?  Week 1 set the record for passing yards (7,842), most quarterbacks with 300-yard games (14), most games with two 300-yard QBs (5), and the single-most passing yards in a game (906 – Patriots vs Dolphins).  I’m sorry, there’s a problem when Cam Newton and Chad Henne passes for over 400 yards, and Gross Rexman passes for over 300.  I might have to start calling him Rex Grossman and I don’t want to do that!  If Henne and Grossman are passing for 300 easy, then its time to shift the rules.  It’s too easy to move the ball in the NFL; unfortunately that’s what the league wants.  Offense attracts the eyeballs.  However, the game like its a woman; her beauty attracts me, but her personality keeps me.  The NFL’s personality used to be the big hits.  When you think of the NFL and great teams, especially teams with names, isn’t it the DEFENSIVE names that you remember.  Monsters of the Midway, Doomsday D, Purple People Eaters, the Steel Curtain.  The league’s personality is quickly becoming the Arena League, and nobody watches that crap.  We just have offense galore with 11 guys standing in the way that can’t hit a “defenseless receiver.”  Bullocks to that.  In defense of the defenseless NFL, there were more sacks (89) than in any other opening weekend.  But until we see defenses get a chance to compete with the offense, watching NFL will be like going out on a date with a lame; you grimace, smile, and drink a stiff drink.

Jenn Sterger is Ready For Florida State to Rise Again

2. It’s been awhile since the ACC has been involved in National Championship talks.  Florida State was always there, and when Virginia Tech and Miami joined, it seemed that the ACC was going to join the SEC and Big-10 as perennial BCS title contenders.  Well the Florida schools fell off harder than Maia Campbell (and if you laughed, you deserve to die and I hope you burn in hell *Sam Jackson voice*, cause I loved Maia back in the day).  Virginia Tech was always the bridesmaid of the group so they were never serious contenders. Well, a decade later, the ACC could be back.  Miami hosts Ohio State in the “Ineligi-Bowl“.  Clemson hosts the national champions Auburn.  Maryland puts their flash to the test against WVU.  And Florida State can show that they are back with a win at home against the #1 team in the land Oklahoma.  If the Seminoles win, the ACC would send a huge statement to the rest of college football.  If they lose, well, at least the ACC has Maryland’s crazy uniform combinations to market.  This game has so many ripple effects to the college football landscape

3. Fellas (and from talking to some females, you can join in too), we know the ultimate no-no during the season is your significant other to ask for some cookies, without replenishing your snack bar or chip bowl. This is a serious violation correct?  I’ll let Clayton Thomas, formerly of the Foxxhole, give you a good line to use in case your boo tries something this crazy.  Fast-forward to the 1:20-1:48 if you’re in a rush.  And check out the rest of the series on Youtube.  After the video, we have your mancave setup for a huge sports weekend.  Peace.

    My highlights from the post:
    – ROFL @ the Seminole pic displaying racism at it’s finest…but let’s not forget what a Sooner is…basically they’re someone who settled in Western US to claim their land first…which in return probably required the removal of Indians…smh, “Hail to the Redskins?”

    – For the next 2 weeks, we should evaluate if Gross Rexman should be retired! lol

    – Good point about how the league was established from defense but now offense runs the show!

    – Hahahahaha at the Maia Campbell reference! lol

    – hahahaha @ the “sexy sandwich”

    Original Hail to the Redskins:
    Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory!

    Braves on the Warpath! Fight for old Dixie!

    Run or pass and score — we want a lot more!

    Scalp ’em, swamp ’em — We will take ’em big score

    Read ’em, weep ’em, touchdown – we want heap more

    Fight on, Fight on — ‘Till you have won

    Sons of Wash-ing-ton. Rah!, Rah!, Rah!

    Well at least we’re a little less racist these days…we even have a Spanish version of HTTR!

    This post!!!!! That video had me rolling. The picture and the comments are simply hilarious. My best part “We whips, chains, KY Jelly, but we ain’t go no food!” *clicks favorite button*

    Football is becoming pass happy though, I would like the defense get a little more leeway like the offensive players do. I do not want a 3-0 football game every week, but at the same time 42-39 is exciting but not the best. Bring back the dominating defenses! and “He got JACKED UP!” now its ” HE GOT FINED UP!”
