One-Dump Preview: SNF Week 4

Seattle 3-0 (Road: 1-0) at Chicago 3-0 (Home: 1-0)

Is anybody else noticing how the quality of matchups for NBC's games is significantly better than what we were seeing on ABC's prime-time games? Of the 6 teams featured in Sunday Night Football this season (IND, NYG, WAS, DAL, DEN, NE), you could have made a postseason argument for any of them (except for the 'Skins; suck it UM!). And we, the fans, are treated to another great matchup tonight.

The Seahawks march into Soldier Field to take on a suprisingly potent Bears offense. Rex Grossman, in addition to not getting injured, has looked pretty competent under center, seemingly justifying the faith of the Bears' front office in him. Of course, the Bears' defense has been consistently tits (4th in the NFL), and will not mope into the game like the Giants did last week in Seattle.

Shaun Alexander proves that, yes Virginia, there is a Madden jinx, and he and his broken-but-almost-healed-by-the-Lord foot will be sitting out tonight, much to the chagrin of my keeper team, the Detroit Pissed-Ons. Maurice Morris will take over his duties, as the Bears and the officials will try to hand the defending NFC Champs their first defeat.

I don't know about slagging off the Skins yet...given today's results, it's clear Mark Brunell prayed extra-hard and Jesus actually listened. Said love had to come from somewhere, so as joked about earlier, expect Denny Green to announce the official beginning of the Babydaddy Era in Buzzsaw Land.

Reports of the Pats' demise were greatly exaggerated. Laurence Maroney saves, people.

Never mind the Sunday night games. They've all been great, but whoever's dumbass idea it was to have Pink perform the theme ought to be shot.

I think the Bears pretty much win the NFC.

The only Madden jinx I ever had was when I used Tinactin to get rid of athlete's foot and I ended up with jock itch.

Well, a Seahawks game where the team simply gets bitched up and down the field, and I don't have to hear about officiating. How refreshing.

I was unaware that Brett Farve was playing for the Bears. Madden just started talking about him how he looks short, wanted to throw the slant and then BOOM throws the deep ball.

Someone please help me understand. Oh and the word verification I have to enter ends in "bj" I guess that explains.

Captain Caveman said...

Wow, Danny Boy with a Super Bowl officiating/whining joke. Tell me, did you have to work hard to come up with that one?

Oh well. At least the Seahawks defensive backs don't attack people on laptop computers. That could get ugly in Seattle. Of course, the 'Hawks DBs didn't attack much of anything tonight (save Michael Boulware and his concussion).

Beban said...

Sorry, CC, it was more of a "your team just got annihilated on national TV" kind of joke. I'll get my writers to do a better job next week. They're non-WGA, so there you go.

At least you're not bitter.

Beban said...

And by the by, your own fellow blogger dropped a Seattle/officiating joke, so, you know, glass houses, pots and kettles, and so on. Relax a bit. You lost a football game. It happens.

8-9 fingers of scotch into the evening after that marvelous display. All the media has to do is keep talking about everyone else but the Bears. Yes, those boys give up yards, but punching it in in the red zone on my boys is like squeezing one off on Virginia six-pump on Sadie Hawkins. The Bears are officially the first NFL team in history to make Chris Collinsworth look non-retarded.

I am quite disappointed that the 'Hawks smuggled in the Giants defense to play the game for them.

My sentiments exactly. Get that fugly bitch off of TV.

Danny Boy: I'm not responsible for what other bloggers write. You taunt my team when I'm still reeling from the ass-stomping, of course I'm going to be nasty. I'll lighten up in about two weeks. Maybe.

Was anyone else amused/disturbed at the way NBC kept on showing the Bears fan with the sign reading: "Put Your SACK on HASSELBECK"?

Not simply "Sack Hasselbeck" but the more elaborate, and much pervier "Put Your Sack on Hasselbeck."

I kept waiting for the audio feed to reveal Urlacher asking Hasselbeck how he liked dees. Dees what? Dees nuts!

Were the Seahawks kind enough to leave the NFC trophy in Chicago so it won't have to be fedexed in January?
