I Hate Football

sad sack
The Giants were awful.

The Jets were worse.

Life is meaningless and filled with pain.

'nuff said.

Aww!
As a Packers fan I can't complain, but I live in KC and everyone around here is miserable over the Chiefs...Mark Sanchez and Matt Cassel -.- /sigh

Feel better!

On the upside, at least Obama will be running the country for the next four years and not Romney! ;)

Football hates you
Yeah. Those games were ugly. The Giants obviously have talent there that just can't seem to click. And I feel like there's hope for the Jets (or I was certainly optimistic coming out of the bye), but Sanchez just isn't doing the job, and Tebow clearly isn't the answer.

( sigh) depressed. what has happend to Eli? seriously more worried about his play then i have been in quite sometime. 0 td's and 4 picks in the last three games? is this the team that dismantled the 49ers? and no pressure on dalton who the giants made look like Joe Montana. fumbles, int's, penalties, botched plays -- horrendous.


somewhere a scarlet faced coach coughlin sits alone and stews...

Uh oh. There are only so many Starks...c'mon Gang Green! Pull it together!

(And despite it being a great day for my fantasy team (thank you Orange Crush), the Bears game does not make me happy at all.)

Being both a Seattle native and G R.R. Martin fan, I slightly dreaded today's football confrontation. I can't really blame the Jets since the Seahawks are actually pretty decent at home. If it makes you feel any better, our Seattle Sounders got destroyed 3-0 in today's soccer match :)

Its called Football
It still strikes me as Americans call football soccer. Iys quite simple, you have football and American Football,though still dont understand why its called "Foot"ball.

I wanted to quit football soooo many times!
Depressed= Vikings vs Saints 2009-2010 season NFL Championship game. I wanted to stop the world, crawl in a cave and quit watching football for the rest of my life. Yet, here I am in my Adrian Peterson jersey watching the games all over again.

No detailed recap?
I always look forward to your melodramatic titles when they both lose.

Short and sweet today. Do you feel the New York clubs aren't even deservant for a venting today? The Giants are worth a paragraph every week, but your faith(not a Tebow joke) in the Jets should be on the hope of them losing their way to a top ten pick in the draft.

Re: No detailed recap?
You forget that, as a Jets fan, GRRM is contractually obligated to hate anyone that they draft. The whole 'Lose to Win' strategy is really an 'insult to injury' scenario where this particular team is concerned. In fact, it sounds like the premise for a Joseph Heller novel.

True Story... Their performances were rather... underimpressive. However having no favourite team in particular myself, I was well entertained watching Ravens vs Raiders.

I suggest switching to auto racing. Formula 1 is coming to Texas next week!

Pain isn't so bad, really. It's... spicy.

The Giants offense needs to get their sh*t together. Embarrassing performance from Eli and ALL of his receivers.

Anyway cheer up ser, we're still looking good for the playoffs :)

Schopenhauer advises...
...us to keep extremely low expectations. Our desires are always demanding things that will never be satisfied, and even when that happens, satisfactions invariably increases our desires, and even if they're all exhausted, we're bored shitless.

Therefore don't expect much from your favorite teams, don't seek happiness via football glory. Seek a minimum of suffering and settle for a bearable life.

The only thing we can control are our minds, so make good use of that.

Accept NFL failure, and never dwell on them - unless you're responsible. :)

If you read the national news coverage...
You'd think Seattle had lost the last two games.

So, reading the Sports Illustrated coverage of the Seahawks wins over the Vikings and Jets:

"Go ahead, Rex Ryan. Start Tim Tebow if you want to next week at the Rams. You might as well scratch that itch, even if you know it won't save the Jets' season. You've been patient with Mark Sanchez and patient with your underachieving team, but it ain't happening, for either one. Sanchez was an ineffective 9 of 22 for 124 yards, with an interception and a fumble lost in New York's 28-7 loss at Seattle. The Jets' only touchdown came on a 21-yard fumble recovery and return by defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson.

As for New York, the playoff talk last week was entertaining, but worthless chatter. The Jets are 3-6, and have lost six of eight after their blowout of Buffalo in Week 1."

Last week's game, against the Vikings:

"The Vikings have thrown it into reverse, but not Adrian Peterson. He's full speed ahead after last December's ACL blowout. Peterson isn't just back, he's back with a vengeance. He led the NFL in rushing with 775 yards entering Week 9, and then he went out and ripped off an 182-yard day on just 17 carries, good for a 10.7 yard average. He had a 74-yard burst that proved his speed is back, and he's still one of the toughest short-yardage runners in the game, scoring from 1 and 4 yards in the 30-20 loss at Seattle.

Seriously, how do you snub either Peterson or Peyton Manning in the Comeback Player of the Year vote? They both deserve a trophy."

Two Seattle wins. Two "quick snaps" that don't mention any players from Seattle, but talk about Name Brand players on the losing team, or the one bright point the losing team had.

If Don Banks (based out of Chicago, and formerly based out of Madison WI) were writing for the New York Post, I could see that kind of reporting on the jets game. He writes for Sports Illustrated.

No respect. The Seahawks played well; in their controversial game against the Packers, they had probably the finest defensive half of football this century, and that's including Baltimore's defensive run in 2000 in the tally.

At least you're not a Chargers fan, eh?

The Niners have had it a little rough, too, but I'll take 'em.

California football, checking in.

Bright Side
I'm not much of a football fan myself, but have been a Red Sox fan for a long time. So I'll just give you the Red Sox fan answer for a bad year: "There's always next year"

Besides season isn't over yet, they could always turn it around.

It happens to the best
The Giants are one of the NFC's best. So they had a blowout to the Bengals. I'm a Ravens guy being from Baltimore. We're a winning team too and look at what happened down in Huston. A good team isn't a good team until they've gotten their ass kicked thoroughly and then rebounded from it. You should know, look at Tyrion :P

The Giants and Jets both did well in comparison to the Dolphins. A 37-3 drubbing by the Titans, who aren't even good this season!

(And on top of that, the 'Canes lost 41-40 thanks to a touchdown with six seconds to go. Gah.)

I join you in pain this week. The Falcons lost because they couldn't push the final two yards in three plays for a winning TD, and the Chargers apparently decided to take the second half off.
