NFL Week 6 Recap, Written By A Depressed Jags Fan

Redskins vs. Cowboys

The most offensive thing about the Redskins’ name this year might be that they call themselves a football team.  Hey, remember when RG3 was picked second in the draft?  I know some of you Redskin fans are having second thoughts about him, and I think I have the solution.  The Jags just might be willing to trade you Blaine Gabbert for RG3.  Heck, we will even throw in Chad Henne because they are kind of a matching set.

Important side note: if you name your child “Blaine” then you obviously want them to grow up to teach ballet or become a street magician.

Tony Romo was extremely proud of the win saying “did you guys see that? I told you to watch me? Was my mom looking?”  Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was so proud of his team that he swore off meddling in the coaches jobs for a whole week and retired to swim in his giant vault of gold.

Jaguars vs. Broncos

ALL ABOARD THE MORAL VICTORY TRAIN! WOOT WOOT! Seriously, beating the spread against Denver might be as close as I get to a win this year.  Just let me have this, okay?  Did you know, the Jaguars held the Broncos to fewer passing yards than any team this year?  I KNOW THE BRONCOS WEREN’T REALLY TRYING I SAID LET ME HAVE THIS, GAH!

The Jaguars were leading the whole first quarter, and let me tell you I’ve never felt so alive.  Colors were brighter, foods tasted better, the sunshine… oh the glorious sunshine! In the second quarter the Broncos came back and scored 12 points, but that’s fine.  We still went into the half with a lead, and I went into the half with happiness and love in my heart.  Of course the Broncos came back in the second half and put us down, but that first half… I will never forget it.  This one is for you Broncos.

I’m not crying, I have something in my eye.

Eagles vs. Buccaneers

The Eagles may have found the magic solution to failure.  That solution is called “the Giants and the Bucs.” (Checks Jags schedule to see if we play Giants and Bucs, sighs and continues to look forward to bye week.)

What is going on in Tampa?  Don’t get me wrong, if I had to live in the armpit of Florida I would be cranky too. But come on Orlampa, get it together.  The Jags suck too, but at least we are a happy loving family that sucks as a team.  Tampa is so messed up, they are basically congress with a football team.  If you think Greg Schiano is going to stop his shutdown on wins anytime soon you’re kidding yourself.

“I really feel like we can get back on track if we keep playing Tampa and New York” said Chip Kelly.  “But in the mean time our offense is built on speed and strength.  So I’m feeding out guys random mushrooms I find to see if I can make them grow and get faster.”

VF01Riley Cooper said some stuff while on a mushroom trip.

Raiders vs. Chiefs

I love watching the talking heads explain how they picked the Chiefs all along.  “This doesn’t surprise me, I said the Chiefs had a lot of moxy” said Peter King.  “Of course I also said every other team had moxy, heart, and a high motor, but I meant it about the Chiefs.”

I was starting to think I had been wrong about Terrell Pryor, maybe he would be different from all the other Raiders QBs? Then Pryor threw three second half interceptions and I stopped stocking my Armageddon shelter.  “A Raiders QB was playing well, I really thought this was my chance” said a disappointed Cthulhu.  “I’m not ready to give up though, maybe the Giants will win next week and we can get this Armageddon started.”

Saints vs. Patriots

Oh Saints, you are why the NFL is second to college football in the south.  Well, you and the Falcons, and the Jags, and the Bucs, and the Texans, and the Cowboys, and the Dolphins… you know what? It’s a team effort.

The Patriots receiving core has managed the impossible this year, they made Tom Brady into Phillip Rivers.  Tom Brady while still a great QB, looks almost… mortal.  I feel like if I had enough kryptonite I might be able to take over his New England redneck metropolis.   Boston is the Arkansas of the north, you can’t deny that when things like this happen:

But this shouldn’t be about New England’s Arkansas, it should be about the one and only New Orleans, crusher of dreams.  You see, even when New Orleans is good, they manage to sneak in a little heart break. They like to remind their fans that this could all go wrong at any moment.  Rob Ryan had to learn that lesson the hard way this past Sunday.

I know that look Rob, and this is what you do:

First, go home and make a big bowl of ice cream, I mean a big one.

Maybe turn on your favorite jams? You look like the kind of bro who loves some Poison or Guns and Roses.

Then you just fire up Madden on Xbox, turn the difficulty all the way down, and destroy those Patriots.

You can get through this Rob, basketball season is just around the corner.

I am considering a Depressed Jags Fan NFL Podcast, where I talk about whats going on in the league and probably cry a little.  If that might be something you want in your ear holes tell me in the comments.

    OK, which type of QB do you really want? A Tony Romo who hits passes all over the field and throws several TDs, only to fall apart when the game is on the line? Or do you want a Tom Brady, who misses many passes during the game, but, throws a perfect pass to win the game with seconds on the clock?

    Over at the Chiefs’ sites, fans are griping about Alex Smith missing passes. The Chiefs are Six and Zero and in one of those wins, Alex brought the Chiefs from behind to win the game. Funny thing about great QBs is how they win games late. I saw Joe Montana beat USC on a late drive. I saw Russell Wilson win games in the 4th quarter. I have seen many QBs put up very impressive numbers only to fade in the 4th quarter. Reminds me of watching college and NBA players who love to shine except in crunch time. I want the player who really wants that ball in his hand when everything is on the line.

      I would certainly take Brady over Romo. Imagine what Brady would be doing if he had Dez Bryant? Skip Bayless wouldn’t be able to contain himself. But let’s not try to compare Brady to the greats like Byron Leftwich.

      • David Kerr

        Leftwich? I thought Mark Brunell was the legend in those parts.

        • Bandit Ref

          Just a joke. I don’t have a shrine to Leftover or anything.

          • David Kerr

            You must have the Leftwich fathead lol. Good article

          • Master Luke

            You joke, but I’d build a shrine to Leftwich if he’d come back.
