Thursday Night Game Thread & Picks Contest Bonus

Thursday Night Game Thread & Picks Contest Bonus

Both of tonight's teams played the Chicago Bears. The combined score? Bears 82 - Colts/Jags 24.

Tonight's picks contest bonus is all about Andrew Luck, the only player really worth tuning into NFL Network to see tonight. But the question is a tricky one. I want:

Luck's total yardage - Luck's passer rating = __________?

So if you believe Luck will throw for 300 yards and have a passer rating of 98, you would submit 202 as your answer. We will replace a missed week with a correct week for anyone who answers within 2 points of the actual answer. Thus a submission of 202 would be correct for any total between 200-204.

I think Luck throws for 260 yards. Passer rating of 85.5. My total is 174.5.

Good luck.

  • First to say the emotional tidal wave has to break at some point. Thinking the Colts win this week and lose next.

  • In other news ... It's Movember and I'm raising funds for prostate and testicular cancer awareness. Crazy stats- .
    • 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
    • This year 242,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
    • This year 8,290 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer

    If you'd like to donate I'd appreciate it and youd be doing a great service for men everywhere. Just use the link below.

    god what a snively little bitch. Man, dude is not very likeable.

    this is a fucking joke, what's wrong with people?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I knew that when his buddy with the Mil. Brewers (Braun) got popped for steroids. He got off on a technicality and Rodgers got all self righteous about his buddy being clean (even though he was guilty as sin). Total Douchebag!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    A.) Does this fucking asshole know that on occasion, babies aren't planned? Florio must walk around with his wife's menstrual calendar app running on his phone wrapped in a body condom 24/7. Cuz hey, you never know. Can't have the old lady giving birth during a football game, now can we?

    B.). To each his own, but to me, if your job doesn't involve protecting the health and safety of others you should probably be at your child's birth. I'm talking about major health and safety stuff . Like Homeland Security, or Navy Seal type shit. Not that I don't appreciate firemen and police officers, but those guys can get others to cover their shift.

    C.) I hereby nominate Mike Florio as DBB "Douche of the Week".

  • Why do I always feel Jeff is toying with us on these bonus picks?

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    I don't think anyone has won one of these yet.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Crown won one early.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Crown won one, and he still might be undefeated!

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    He is.

  • And I thought Cutler locked onto Marshall. Luck already has targeted Wayne like 10 times, and it's not even halftime.

  • I love the NFL...but this Jax/Colts game is un-fucking-watchable.
    I give up. I cannot take another snap of Jaguars football this year.
    It's like watching a shitty 8-man team playing a mid-level SEC team. I don't like watching either one but this is just not fair.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Yeah, it's pretty painful. The refs are just giving this game to the Colts. That last Luck TD was NOT a TD. That 30 yd bomb to Shorts WAS a catch. That PI on Luck which saved an INT was tick tack at best. That other PI call which kept the chains moving on 3rd was also B.S. and seemed to only be called because Wayne started bitching to the refs.

    I'm seriously wondering if the Colts will continue to get favorable calls from now on because of their coach.

  • Was saying the exact same thing to my buddies. Total bullshit.

  • Wow, this is a brutal game. I just turned it off in favor of "Predator"....with commercials.

  • In reply to Waffle:

    "Get to the choppa!"

  • Man, I'd take "Kindergarten Cop" over this.

    "It's not a toooomah!"

  • In reply to Waffle:

    "Stick around!"

  • In reply to Shady:

    Heck, "Batman and Robin" would better than this...

    "Time to break the ice!"

    On of the best movies EVER.

    hey Mac... so I says to my girl the other night.... geez you got a big pussy... geez you got a big pussy.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Here's the other pussy joke:

  • Hahahahah did you guys just see the refs let Gabbert get blasted by a free offsides DE "unabated to the QB"

  • In reply to thebigcheese:


  • In reply to thebigcheese:


  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Refs have been calling for the Colts all night. Probably wanted Henne to get injured so that Gabbert would come back in.

    Yep, Jeff's Thurs Night Picks Contest Bonus curse still in effect.

  • In reply to Shady:

    A quick search shows no one won.

    Sort of like a Colts-Jags game on Thursday night: no one wins--especially not the fans.

  • Hee hee

  • What to take away from tonight's game:

    You COULD be a Jaguars fan.


  • Here's what I've decided on over the last 36 hours as I try to understand why I'm so incredibly worried and nervous about this game (and next week's while we're at it)...

    ...historically (and really more so over the last few years), we don't really eek out wins in the hard ones very often. If we have a tough opponent and we have an 'off' night, we get blown the fuck out and look like a paper team. Sure, on the other side of the spectrum we have the '06 AZ game and this year’s trap game win in the waning moments of the 4th against the cam newton’s… but most of the time, in primetime, against big bad teams, we get knocked the fuck out!

    I’m terrified of jay having another diabeetus night game and watching the Texans do to the beloved what GB did to them. Like Jeff said, it won’t be the end f the world for us, but it’s not about that right? It’s about every time our team kicks scrapes and claws its way into everyone’s top 5 list, we completely shit the bed on national TV under the brightest of lights. Sadly, it’s just “so bears”.

    We have something special this year, I think we all see that… yes the problems that some of us (ahem) have been griping about over the last 4 years continue to be our Achilles, and threaten not only the win… but also the confidence we SHOULD have going into this game, but it also threatens how special this team could and should be. Great teams HAVE to win the big ones on the main stage. We need to win this game... and next week's too, to be honest if we want to go to the show... not from a statistical perspective, but from a psychological perspective.

    I talked to that partner of ours who’s in Chitown about the game and he said he’s been so terrified and nervous for the last few days that it’s having an effect on his sleep. I know this is our cross to bear (see how I...) as Bears fans, but just once I’d like to KNOW that ALL phases are going to show up ALL game and that we WILL beat the shit out of the next two scary good teams, under the brightest lights possible.

    Bear Down mah bitches!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Laid yet?

  • Hahahahahahahaha... jump on line sometime my brother. I sent you an invite last couple nights.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    This game is not a must win. It would be nice but no one getting injured is more important as we would be 7-2. The name of the game is getting to the playoffs. We could lose this game...and the next and still go the playoffs very easily.
    With that being said this town and the media would be fucking intolerable if we lose just once. Chicken littles will be screaming about Cutler not being a franchise QB, the Bears being a pretender, blah fucking blah blah blah.
    Cutler is seemingly not being given an inch of wiggle room this season. We lose we're pretenders, we beat the wrong team and we're pretenders and are pieces of shit.
    If we win it doesn't fucking matter either because people will just say it's because their backup running back was hurt or their tightend didn't play.....
    We can't win no matter what fucking happens but I'm telling you this right now because I know it to be true after watching our guys play and trusting that Tice will be smart enough to know what I fucking already know about what to do on offense against these guys to win, WE ARE GOING TO WIN THIS GAME.

    This offense, in it's first year in Tice's system will score points against the Texans. The defense will stop Foster and Schaub and Johnson. Hester will get a big return that either has him going to the house or putting us in position for points.
    Tillman will punch balls and the defense will fly around because that's what they fucking do. Pep and Briggs are going to have monster games.

    Fuck all these naysayers and critics. We're going to stomp these motherfuckers..

  • love the sound of that... I'm a Bears fan, and I'm nervous. I think we all are.

    Btw, I don't give a fuck about the media

    PS. Shut the fuck up (

  • I like that these are hard. They should be. But I never expected only two people to hit all season. Crown hit an early one. And I believe Michael L hit one a few weeks back.

  • Is Stephen A Smith mildly retarded? I believe so. "Alshon only has 200 yards" Yeah...ya dont say. I wonder why that is.

  • New thread.
