The bad news about this week in the NFL: the Saints are on a bye. The good news about this week in the NFL: the Saints are on a bye. So with no black and gold team to stress over, the Chicks have decided to get all up in the Kool-Aid (and yes, we do know the flavor) of some other NFL teams and must see matchups.
How cool is it to get to say you’re both captain of your football team and head cheerleader? Several high profile quarterbacks will spend four quarters watching their games from the sidelines this Sunday and for various reasons. Some because they suck, some because they’re hurt, and still others, well, all of the above.
Matt Leinart, QB Arizona Cardinal
But Why?: Suckyness/Rookie Mistakes
Replacement: Kurt Warner
Jake Delhomme, QB Carolina Panthers
But Why?: Elbow Issues
Replacement: David Carr
Rex Grossman, QB Chicago Bears
But Why?: Did you really have to ask? Dude sucks like Lewinsky in her favorite little black dress
Replacement: Brian Griese
Josh McCown, QB Oakland Raiders
But Why?: Broken Toe
Replacement: Daunte Culpepper
Interesting to Note: Daunte will be taking on his former team, the Miami Dolphins. Which leads us to our next topic….
I promise this isn’t a line. But um, don’t I know you from somewhere?
Finally, Falcons fans will get to boo someone other than their own team. Ex-Falcon QB Matt Schaub returns to the Georgia Dome this Sunday for the first time since getting cut. The Texans (2-1) take on the Falcons (0-3) in a game that’s got “Damn it, we’re going to hear a lot of commentating on dog fighting” written all over it.
Ravens friend turned foe Jamal Lewis will also be taking on his old team when Baltimore and the Browns meet up in Cleveland. Let’s see how much he likes being on the receiving end of that obnoxious Ray Lewis sack dance. (Wasn’t T.O.’s version so much cooler?)
There’s Something About Brett
The Vikings will likely have the honor of starring in Brett Favre’s highlight reel after he breaks Dan Marino’s career TD passing record tomorrow. How can we be so sure tomorrow’s game goes in the history books? Um, have you been watching the Vikings play. Not to mention, the Packers have won three of their last four games played in Minnesota and the Vikings have the 20th ranked pass defense in the league.
So kick up your feet, pop open a cold one, and relax my little Who Dats. There’s plenty-o pigskin to be had this Sunday. And at least this time around, you can watch without the threat of throwing something at your plasma in a fit of rage.
