So you mean to say he caught this pass, as well as several others?
Hey everyone, hope you’re having a nice relaxing afternoon. I don’t mean to alarm you but…JOSH GORDON IS LEADING THE NFL IN RECEIVING!
This is not a drill. This is real fucking life people.
Calvin Johnson did not change his name to Josh Gordon. I am talking about the Josh Gordon that plays for the Cleveland Browns. What I’m really trying to say is that the amount of yards he has amassed receiving this season is more than any of the other players who also catch passes. He has fourteen hundred yards receiving, and the last time I checked the rest of the Browns offense has accounted for a hundred and forty four*. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ll go back to not mentioning his name again until he gets traded to a contender next season.
* = not a precise figure
Podcast time my friends! In this week’s episode, Ben and Nate discuss the crazy situation in Washington, Monday Night Football and the new hotness that is Josh McCown, and they go over the best wins and worst losses of the season. Tune in and enjoy!
“You got a weird number for a linebacker.”
The first NFL Sunday of December sure looked…Decembery. Washington, Baltimore, and Green Bay were all a snowy mess. Denver was ten degrees. But Philadelphia? Well, Philadelphia looked like Hoth. Despite the sub par conditions, it was one of the more memorable regular season Sundays in recent memory. Let’s do this!
Meanwhile, in a comfy dome…
The Saints took a big step towards more or less closing the deal on the NFC South on Sunday night. Even if Carolina wins at home against New Orleans a few weeks from now and the team’s end with the same record the Saints should have the tie breaker. Continue reading

And then everyone lost their shit (Source: nfl.si.com)
In the wake of Seattle’s Monday Night shellacking of the Saints, it had become abundantly clear that Russell Wilson had grown more in his second year as a starting quarterback than RGIII, Colin Kaepernick, or maybe even Andrew Luck.
In perhaps his most memorable performance to date, Wilson went 22 for 30 for 310 yards, 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. On top of that he also ran for 47 yards and seemed in complete control of the game from start to finish. If at the end of the game the ESPN postgame crew had said, “This was a statement game for Russell” or “He has positioned himself as one of the best quarterbacks in football” I could have agreed with all of that.
Instead, they took it a bit too far. Continue reading
Welcome to our new feature: Coaches Being Assholes!
Okay, it’s probably not going to be a real feature. But we’ve been packed to the brim by shitty acts by coaches lately. We’ll start in basketball, where two former players-turned-coaches did acts that some people would call savvy and most of us would call fucking shady as hell.
Kevin McHale intentionally stood in between Tim Duncan and his teammates during an inbounds pass at the end of a quarter. Duncan tried to get him to move, but after moving back to his bench, he stood next to Duncan again. Whether it was to impede Duncan’s play or get a whiff of his musk, McHale’s acts are somewhere between cheapass coach and creepy uncle.
Then there was Jason Kidd, who had no timeouts left in a close game and wanted to run a play. So he did what any asshole coach would do: he told one of his players to bump into him while he was holding a cup of water so it spilled over the floor, then tried to call a play while it was being cleaned up. He got fined and his team still lost, so it sure paid off! (Side note. It’s become the vogue thing to name scandals like this, so I’ve come up with a pretty good one: Watergate! Everyone likes putting -gate at the end of scandals, right?)
But the one most relevant to this blog, and the one that seems to be the getting the most attention, is Mike Tomlin’s dance move during Jacoby Jones’ kickoff return. And with most things, there is overreaction on both sides. So let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way, and then focus on what should be done about it.
What an asshole. (Source: Huffington Post)
