    Fatty used the McDermott quote to show his disgust with the Jones-Allen “collision”. The only surprise is he didn’t lead the column and go 300 words on how horrific it was.

    Put your wife the “activist” on the case. 

    “These plays happened in what is supposed to be an enlightened time in the NFL, when players understand the future of the sport is under fire. Any parent who in considering whether to allow a child to play tackle football and who was watching on the sixth and seventh play of the game, a prime-time game rightfully would wonder whether the NFL is simply paying lip service to gratuitous and vicious hits but doesn’t really want to take them out of the game.”

    Pete begs for free stuff.

    “I came home to Brooklyn with a case of Spotted Cow from New Glarus Brewing in Wisconsin. That’s the beer sold only in Wisconsin. Well, as of this morning, there are two of the 12-ounce heifers left in the fridge. Not sure how to go on without a stockpile of Cows. That next road trip to Green Bay? Might be a real road trip.”

    “Last Wednesday, as I do every morning around 4, I got up to use the bathroom.”

    He’s mocking me openly.

    “It’s a Raiders home game! Only 5,345 miles from Oakland! The shame of the league choosing the Bears as the opponent for the Raiders’ international game? It means Khalil Mack will never play another game in Oakland. In fact, there’s a good chance Mack will never play in Raider land. The next time the Raiders host the Bears will be in Nevada, in 2028. Mack will be 37.”

    All the hits he’s referencing here were in the Thursday night game. It’s almost like he’s sub-tweeting (the narrative equivalent) the Allen knockout.

    The helmet to helmet hit on Marcus Peters at the goal line on his pick 6 was 100 times worse than the hit that Allen took yesterday (blind sided from the side where Allen was hit going forward) and the announcers barely made a mention of it. I thought Peters was dead.

    No penalty on this hit. I still don’t know why there was a flag on the Allen hit.

    Anyone with half a football brain knows that the hit on Allen didn’t warrant a flag let alone a public execution.  For God’s sake Tony fucking Dungy called it a clean hit.

    I can’t believe these so called genius coaches that don’t know basic rules like giving yourself up or when you’re still a runner.  Last week McDermott witnessed a ‘give yourself up’ play where the opposing coach went ape shit, you’d think he’d know the fucking rules.  And remind your quarterback this isn’t the Mountain West Conference anymore.

    And that clip of McDermott shooing away a couple of Patriots guys, one looked like Scarnecchia, before the game tells you where the guy’s head is at.

    Funny that King couldn’t spare a sentence or two to offer his opinion of the hit. Then again, considering he didn’t include quotes from people who didn’t think it was dirty, like Chris Long or Tony Dungy, we can guess which direction he’s going.

    I don’t think anyone has asked why, if McDermott thought it was so important that those two Patriots’ staffers leave the field, he ran back to the locker room before they left? That kind of removes the incentive for those guys to leave. If I yell at the kids to turn off their video game and get out of the living room, but then leave the house, they’re probably playing for a few more minutes.

    I’m still on board with the Vic Fangio hire. It was a smart, long-haul move to bring in a no-nonsense, respected adult in the room by John Elway

    He’s 0-4 as a first time head coach at age 60 and he’s a “long-haul” move?  I’d also question the ‘respected’ aspect as the players have already tuned him out.  Chris Harris practically asked for a trade yesterday.

    And kudos to Tim Graham of The Athletic, for his excellent story on the, ahem, dildonic tradition at Bills games

    Yes, I’m sure it was a hard hitting investigative piece.  Totally underground secret society stuff, no one knew it existed.  Next we’ll get a Green Bay reporter who dives in to the mooning of the opponent’s bus.

    Re:  Marcus Peters INT

    OJ Howard’s, #80, tackling effort was criminal.

    But the NFL has an office in Shanghai, has a strong streaming presence there, and the league estimates there are about 10,000 Chinese flag-football players.

    Wow, they could fill 16% of the smallest NFL stadium, rush right over.

    The Lions on that Chiefs fumble recovery return were flat out pathetic.

    So you are in favor of this approach: If there’s a huge story and the people involved in that story are evasive in answering questions, we should simply stop asking questions about it. Not the way journalism works. In journalism, uncomfortable questions are going to be asked after the greatest franchise in sports picks up a superstar on the street and cuts him 12 days later when he’s been charged in a civil suit with three counts of sexual assault, and then another woman comes forward and makes another sex-harassment accusation. That’s not a “stupid” question, Laurra. That’s a “valid” question, an “important” question.

    Smart thing to do would be to try a different approach beyond asking direct questions at a time when you were told we’re not talking about that.

    Interesting comp for Eli Manning. From David Israel: “Cal Ripken. Cal’s stats aren’t all that exciting.Career .276 hitter, 431 home runs in 21 seasons, .488 slugging, .788 OPS, ordinary defensively, played on a lot of losing teams. But showing up for work mattered, and Ripken was elected to the Hall, first ballot, 98.5 percent of the vote. Eli has never missed a game with injury, not once in his career. The only times he did not play, it was a coach’s decision. Showing up for work should matter in the NFL, as well.”

    Really smart analogy. Ripken strikes me as a better offensive player than Manning was, but overall it works, because both put up great numbers and had the sort of indomitable spirit and common decency off the field that we love in our stars.

    Yep, those are just ordinary numbers Ripken put up.

    SOSH was debating whether he should have been ejected or not and all agreed that it was flag worthy. I give up.

    Wouldn’t the Bears play at the Raiders in 2027, it’s every 8 years. He’s shockingly wrong.

    When the Bears travel to San Mateo to play the 49ers, I’m sure that die-hard Raider fans will be able to watch their beloved Khalil Mack.   By the same token, all their SoCal gang members fans can go to Inglewood, and/or Carson and/or The Coliseum to see him play the Rams and the Chargers.

    As for the Vegas fans … who gives a s— about them? The Raiders haven’t moved there yet. Vegas was never Mack’s home city.

    Speaking of giving a s—, has anyone ever written more about his disgusting body waste elimination processes than the Fat Fuck From Flatbush? It verges on perversion.

    Right or wrong when ever two players helmets collide and one of them looks like he got his bell rung. It’s going to get a flag 75% of the time.

    We were probably a bit tougher on Fouts, but unlike Chatham we don’t have a podcast with the Athletic to complain.
