Everyone likes talking about parity ruining the NFL, but the real problem with the league is the large number of truly lousy teams out there, not the handful of just mediocre ones.
There were four games on Sunday featuring two 0-and-2 teams, each team deserving of their record. Add to that the two games between lousy 1-and-1 teams (the Cardinals and Jets games).
That’s 12 crap teams right there, and I’m not even counting the 49ers or Browns. Or the Raiders, who might be the worst of the bunch.
Half the league can just about give up their playoff hopes already, three weeks into the season. That’s not parity, that’s embarrassing. It pisses me off, and it makes Joe Paterno sick to his stomach.
What is happening to the league when Rex Grossman and Brad Johnson are the QBs for two of the better teams in the NFC? When JP Losman is starting? Christ.
It’s not just the bottom of the league that’s lousy. Last year’s Steelers might have been the most pedestrian Super Bowl winners of the past 15 years.
There is an upside: the NFL is still 1000% better than baseball. Won’t that f’ing season end already?
Ryder Cup Update: Sergio Garcia was great on Friday and Saturday, but gagged and lost on Sunday. Just like he does every week on the PGA tour.
Ad Report Card: I saw 94 commercials on Sunday for a new Robin Williams movie, “Man of the Year,” where I guess he plays a comedian who becomes President. Yet more unbelievable crap from Hollywood.
Williams becoming Prez isn’t the unbelievable part – recent history shows that any dude with a history of cocaine use can get the job now. But Robin Williams playing a funny comedian? Now that’s unbelievable. Dude, you suck. Call me when Mork & Mindy comes to the big screen, otherwise go away, jerk.
