Monday Night Football Thread, Go Seahawks and the Picks Contest Bonus!

Dropping this onto the site a bit early tonight. Received some emails complaining that folks don't know about the bonus rounds and it's unfair. So here it is...

It is one of the toughest places to play in the NFL and we need a big Seahawks effort to put a game between the Bears and the Packers.

Here's the picks contest bonus.

  1. First, the Seahawks have to win. If the Packers win there will be no bonus awarded tonight. (That's how we do things.)
  2. Guess the number of completions for Russell Wilson. That's it. Just guess the number of passes Wilson will complete to people.
  3. As always, make your selection in its own comment. Do not include the selection in the body of a separate comment.

You have to nail this one. No wiggle room. And these bonuses will be a hot commodity because there are several people - including myself - who've opened the year 3-0 in the picks contest.

  • Neither Clay Mathews or that chick have an upper lip. Weird.

    And B Marshall and Fat Sapp are going at it in the court of public opinion. Interesting.

  • Great retort B.Marsh, but keep your eyes on the fucking road. We're going to need you for at least 18 games this year!!

    Glad to see this kid is mentally-centered right now.

  • In reply to Crown:

    fuck Warren Sapp. seriously. the .00001 ounce of respect I had for him before has been obliterated. don't wish harm on others, but would not miss a wink of sleep if his life mirrored Jay Mariotti's eventually.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Right in his face?

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Boom FQD! Where you been all my life. He's just hating because he MC Hammer'd himself. This should console you: http://www.suntimes.com/sports/football/11800213-419/warren-sapp-files-for-bankruptcy-assets-include-240-pairs-of-jordans.html

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    I lost all respect for him when he blew up a guy a mile away from the play. It was legal but extremely cheap. At some point the NFLN will shit can his fat ass.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    That was against a really good Packer left tackle, Pro Bowler Chad Clifton. (Not to be confused with the immortal Tony Clifton). Sapp broke his pelvis. In Sapp's defense, he did say afterwards he regrets that play more than any other in his career.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    +5000 for the Tony Clifton reference...

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    I couldn't remember who it was until you posted it. Sapp should have regreted it. I'm sure Sapp would be fun to be with tossing back a couple of cold ones but he should engage his brain before his mouth when he's on TV.

  • Goddamn night shift, I was only awake this morning for round 1 of the '12 Cutler debate. Reading thru the comments on the last thread it looks like it raged for another 11 rounds.

    My input(and I'm sure everyone's done) is that while I'll admit he has looked shaky through the first 3, I just don't see this regression a lot are talking of. I'll TAKE the improvement he has had between the gb game and this last one, still room for more but this also isn't my point.

    Point is compared to last year, at this point, we are 1 win better than we were, and he wasn't exactly blowing minds against gb or no in weeks 2 and 3. The mood around this blog at the time was probably pretty similar to now, but it's weird this time cuz we're com in off a win. Point is, still got a lot of games left and a winning start.

    And back to Cutler, I can't really say I miss Orton, Grossman, Greise, Stewart, Krenzel, McNown, Qiunn, Hutchinson, Chandler,Matthews, probably more. I don't even miss Jim Miller and I kinda liked that dude
    for a few weeks. Like Waffle was saying on the last thread and I've noticed the last 2 games: give us just a few of those drops by Brandon or especially Alshon, just one or two of them, and we are talking touchdowns and potential game-changing results.

    Then shit gets eve more interesting next year when we do draft two big fast o linemen(..and a safety, haha).
    I think we are probably not talking about this in a few weeks.

  • In reply to ben in norcal:

    I'm on night shift right now. That's one of the best things about this blog. Johnny and I can argue back and forth with no hard feelings. There wasn't any name calling or insults. What a concept for the internet!

  • My favorite part of the last thread, coming from a nicotine deprived Willie.

    I can tell these things about Jay Cutler, without a single stat:

    1. He can throw the ball.
    2. He makes stupid decisions.
    3. He has a shitty offensive line.
    4. His personality is not like Eli Manning.
    5. He's better than what we had.
    6. He's a tough summummabitch.
    8. Haters gonna hate.

    Fuck a stat.

    Brick shat.

    Romo. Fucking. Dead.

  • In reply to Crown:

    Referring to the vaginal walls.

  • In reply to Crown:

    it does but the initial integrity can never be recovered unless the offseason rehab program is rigorous and followed to the letter. Kegels, kegels, kegels. High protein diet, kegels, kegels,kegels.

    Rigorous like a Thomas Jones arm workout

  • I think the Seahawks are gonna do what the Bears should have done last week: pound the rock to control time of possession and slow down Fabio and the Fudge pass rush. This will also allow Wilson 3rd and manageable situations. If they are smart, they'll double team Fabio on pass plays. It would be doubly sweet to see the Seahawks win with Russell Wilson. Most Packer fans are also Badger fans and they loved him in college. On a side note, I'll be interested in seeing Moffitt play right guard tonight since I gushed about him his entire senior season on this blog. He was injured most of last year and training camp this year, so I've never seen him play.

    Seahawks 20, Peckers 17. Fuck those fucking fucks.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    I liked Moffitt too, but he did have the inj tag against him, if I remember correctly.

  • Moffitt was injury free most his college career, so I was surprised when he got hurt last year.

  • This bowl of captain crunch. Dead.

  • 17

  • Every time I listen to Wilson, I leave impressed.
    Every time I listen to other, uhm, ya know, qbs, not so much.

    But if Bradshaw/Marino taught us anything, it is that one doesn't have to score high on the SATs to win games as an NFL QB.

    If the 'Hawks had a legit #1 WR, they'd be very dangerous.

    I hope this becomes like a re-run of the Chiefs game last year.

  • Sidney Rice resembles that remark.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    He'll prob get injured again tonight. A skittle will hit his leg, and take him out for a month.

  • My bud in Chicago said he was at Stanley's bar last night and Chelios burned a Cutler jersey in the bar. What the fuck is going on?

  • In reply to Crown:

    That has to be a joke.

  • In reply to Shady:

    The video of it is on TMZ.
    No kidding.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Wow. You know Jay might SOUND like a d-bag, but Chelios ACTED like a d-bag with that trick. What a low class maneuver, definitely lost some respect for Chris Chelios.

  • In reply to Crown:

    See a Chelios, that is...

    what the fuck is going on with this shitty fucking fanbase? This is absolute lunacy.

  • I'm curious how Okung will do against Matthews. Okung was a high 1st rounder. If Matthews gets 3 sacks against him, maybe Webb nation gets a little pass...just a smidgen of one...

  • Wasn't this Bruce Irving guy a player the Bears were interested in? I wonder if he had been available if the Bears would have selected Irving ahead of McClellan.

  • This abuse is beautiful.

  • Note to Waffle - et.al. -

    Pull shoe laces tight during stitching after episiotomy.

    Voila -

    O line - Beta Blockers -

    Seahawks jersey colors would look excellent in a tennis t-shirt.

  • In reply to Jack Lacan:

    Who ARE you Jack Lacan?

    (Note to others: don't google episiotomy)

  • In reply to Shady:

    I thought Lacan had died.

  • i'm not trying to be a dick, i actually thought he died since we hadn't read a post from him in months.

  • In reply to Jack Lacan:

    He's back!

  • This is fucking awesome.

    1. Makes our D vs. GB not look so hot.
    2. Seahawks will murder Cutler.
    3. Rodgers fucking dead.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    I don't understand why GB is not running the ball. They came out running against us. So far only 2 runs for Benson this entire half. The Bears are going to have to run the ball. I can already see the false starts piling up with that crowd noise. The next two games are going to be tough ones.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Luckily the game is at Soldier Field.

    It's strange to see the Packers come out and continue to pass when they clearly can't block for it, epsecially after seeing the Bears make the same mistake the week prior.

    Note to coordinators: If you don't have a line that can pass block, run, run, run and run some more. Help your QB out by setting up a convincing play action pass.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I don't know why I thought we played the Seahawks at their place after the Cowboys. Duh! I will take the Jags over the hawks right now.

  • In reply to Who is Willie Gault:

    Cutler will only be killed if Martz gets to play guest coordinator. Tice is watching the fuck out of this game right now.

  • I don't know about you guys, but I am absolutely loving this game.

    I'm telling you though, Seattle is the real deal. We'll have our work cut out for us come November. In the meantime...

    Go SEATTLE!!!

    Can we get 12 sacks tonight?

  • Aaron getting a turf lesson....

  • Wow, how bout them hawks?

  • Check out our opponents next week:

    Cowboys.com

  • like a fighter taking a dive. 3rd and 37?

  • 5 completions so far.

  • Maybe the replacement refs could just drop down and fellate Rodgers right on the field. Bullshit PI yet again and again

  • How to beat the seahawks:

    1. zone blocking cut back running plays
    2, short checkdown underneath routes

    someone call Tice and explain

  • We can't power block and you want us to get all Gibbs with it?

  • Kick it you pussies

  • It only took 3 phantom PI calls to score that drive.

  • The Ref's just gave the Peckers a TD instead of having to punt.

  • Shields called PI. That was a joke. I hate the Pack but that was a joke. These refs suck.

  • Chuckie and his pal saying this is making the NFL suck

  • If a tree falls in the woods and no one is present does it make a sound?

    If the refs fuck up calls on both sides consistently on meaningful plays in the game which fuck up is worse?

  • Ced Ben tried to shit the game away, God bless him.

  • refs are joke

  • This shit is out of hand.

    What a shit show.

  • Spousal abuse is nothing to joke about, but there are going to be some violent Wico chicas out there - LOOK OUT HUBBIES.

  • Wholly fuckin shit! ahahhahhahahahhahahhahahahhahahahhah

  • why am i not surpised that the game ended like this? The Packers were handed drive extending penalties that resulted in points and the Hawks get a fucking gift from a shitty ref and a shitty review from a veteran reviewer.

    fucking fix that ref shit fucking now

  • Love it.

  • This could be the game to get the NFL back to the table.

    I hate the cheese as much as the next guy, but the Packers were jobbed. I almost. ALMOST feel bad. Fug 'em.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Karma. They got so many calls agains the G-men last year, and in the playoffs, and then some in this game. That last TD drive for instance.

  • ARE U KIDDING ME!? YEESSSSS!!!

  • WHAAATTT!!!!!!

  • That was one of the most bullshit games I've ever seen. Packer's didn't deserve their touchdown, and neither did the Seahawks. I am now officially an advocate of getting the professional referees back.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Goodell has to be embarassed.

  • In reply to Shady:

    First time in my life I truly believe there is something worse than Ed Hochuli.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    There you go, Corm!

    Workers of the world, unite!

    Just kidding. That game was flat out terrible. The officiating all weekend was terrible.
    Bring back the pros.

  • By the way... Wilson looks like a really tan white guy. Like he should star in the newest reboot of Soul Man.

    And fuck the Peckers... Shitty calls all over. That non PI on Woodson would have been a game changer.

  • Packers got robbed there, but they were getting favourable calls the whole game.

    No doubt that the 8 sacks in a half will be lost in all this.

  • Watch the xp result in a fumble and run back

  • In reply to gpldan:

    thought you couldn't return XPs? or is that just on 2pt plays?

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    No you are right the whistle would blow as soon as the d picked up the fumbled snap. Except these refs would forget to...

  • How many fucking missed and botched calls affected both teams and resulted in scores? who got jobbed hardest? Packers because they got jobbed last? Or Hawks because they got jobbed multiple times resulting in Packers scores?

  • blown calls + teams jobbed = blow jobs?

  • Who doesn't love multiple 'jobbings?

    He who was jobbed last is jobbed hardest?

  • In reply to Shady:

    We have nothing to job but job itself.

  • Technically the Seahawks should go for two here...

  • In reply to Shady:

    If I were the Pack I would keep jumping offside on the xp and just make the refs call it again and again

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Madden style?

  • btw, loving the new handle Waffle

  • Gruten is about to cry...jeez.....Looked like to me that Jennings had it first but by the time he got his 2nd foot down was he in total control of the ball or did the Seahawk player have it pulled away and have two hands on it to make it a simultaneous possession?

  • Imagine if the Pack miss the playoffs by one win...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    ... to Seattle.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Ironically this will be the asterisk that all Packer Trolls will use as we roll to the superbowl.

  • because Packers Trolls are gay

  • Rodgers took a beating Django Unchained style in the first half

  • That was sweet. The NFL owners deserve this shit. They're making hundreds of millions a year and they tried to squeeze the refs for a few hundred thousand. Fuck the rich cocksuckers.

    Speaking of cocksuckers, apparently Rodgers isn't all that wonderful when the worm turns. Ha ha! That's karma for acting like a such a douche with the pistol BS after his early scramble.

    When he came out lecturing the fans after his buddy Braun (Milwaukee Brewers) skated by on his steroid suspension on a technicality, I knew he was total blow boy.

  • I had the Packers -3 1/2 tonight. Unfuckingbelievable.

  • In reply to Viva:

    OUCH!

  • As I watch the Sidney Rice pass interference you will notice that the obvious call would be offensive pass interference but you'll notice that Shields railroads Rice to the sideline which makes it a harder call because even though Rice grabs him, Shields initiated contact and drove him away from the ball.

    The endzone call looks obvious because it begins with Offensive PI then Jennings looks like he get it but by the time his second foot hits the ground it is more ambiguous. Pack still got jobbed on that play though. There were other jobs during the game for both sides so overall it is shit and the real refs need to come back and common sense needs to be used in the replay booth.

    Romo Dead.

  • How about Greg Jennings taking a shot to the face in the middle of his route? He came after the Seattle CB after the play. He knew he got punked. Ridiculous playground ball.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Gotta agree. I loved it because it happened to a Fudgie but what a cheap shot.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    His stupid ass ended up pinned under the CB too....tough guy, that Jennings.

  • In reply to Shady:

    why did this have to happen to the packers? their fans are already intolerable.

  • There could be flash flooding in the Dairy State due to all the tears.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    its ok, the foam cheeseheads will soak it up.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    That was excellent, DYL.

  • and for everyone having a go about Jay and the offense:

    1) Fuck that noise
    2) We have given up less sacks than the packers
    3) We have more TDs than the packers

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    And they still smoked us. Loving the Fudgie hose job. WOO-HOO!

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    While I'm totally with you on people having a go at our 'O', the Pack at this point, make every 'O' look like they got it great.

  • Seattle is a stoner town but they would have rushed the field had they over turned. Imagine if this is a Jets Giants game...

    Punk refs let the game get away from them...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Or an Oakland vs anyone game.

    The league has to bring in the real refs now. The charade has gone on long enough and Goodell has to admit defeat. Every single game has been players constantly pushing and such after the play and it won't be long til someone starts throwing punches.

    Sidenote; did anyone see the refs almost take out a dallas WR?

    http://readandreact.net/2012/09/23/replacement-referee-takes-out-kevin-ogletree-with-his-hat-gif/

  • Smallest number I saw in the contest was 13 from MBP. Who would have expected the winning team in the modern NFL to complete 10 total passes all game?

  • So, long story short for this weekend in the NFL seems to be that Jesus was just a prophet for Steve Sabol, and we need the "real" refs back so we can complain about all the shit they miss instead of having to complain about what the replacements are missing and what they're fucking up.

    I took a sick pleasure in watching the pack lose such a refereeing debacle. It was kind of like a BDSM scene. Difficult and painful in the middle, worth the payoff at the end. And while I'm not proud of it, thinking about the green bay flight home after that makes me happy.

  • In reply to BACON:

    Which do you think is bigger, Bj Rajis Super Bowl ring or your cock ring?

  • Twitter is blowing up. As you might imagine.

  • Viva took the line and lost. Can you imagine the books in Vegas?

    Fuck, I'd just close the window for Thursday nights game. Fuck it shut it down.

  • It ALMOST makes up for the screw job when Magic Man threw a pass beyond the line of scrimmage to beat us. That was blatantly obvious to everyone but the refs at full speed. They still fucked it up looking at the replay. Payback is a bitch!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Awesome Majikowski drop...

  • Who hates labor more, Goodell or Romney?

    Yeah, it was there so I took it...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Rahm nee.

  • Rodgers says the head ref handed him a kicking ball after an INC. He asked him "what do I do with this?"

    Man that's bad.

  • Dear Roger,

    Unfuck this.

    R/S
    Viva

  • A lot of Sea fans are not feeling bad at ALL. In fact, many feel a small sense of karmic justice from that SB the refs gave the Steelers.

    Too bad GB doesn't have an owner. I would have loved to hear how that would've went.

  • imagine if the imaginary GB owner were at that game...man...Goddell would of have a serious fiasco on his hands.
