RU Ready for some Football?

I don't like to call out one of our valued commenters by name, but...

Keith, from here on out, no comments will be allowed that debase or deprecate Jamacus Russel. I can see exemptions for ridiculing those goofy earrings, but his QB skills are off limits. I have a delete button and I am not afraid to use it.

I will live but I will be grouchy for at least 24 more hours. Hey the Raiders beat us, that happens. I just asked SC if he saw the penalty at the end of the game. It gave them one or two more downs and as much as 30 seconds on the clock. Yet the illustrious TV presentation could not be bothered to run a replay. We saw the pass and the clock five times during the officials' time out, but we never saw the game-changing penalty. For all I know, #59 was busted with a smoking gun, DNA, and a solid chain of evidentiary possession. But if it were a ticky tacky call that changed the game, I'd like to have seen it.

The broadcasters. They called the game over with five minutes left and a single score separating division rivals. They were doing the playoff lineup and congratulating Coach McDaniels for his ninth win. I was wondering "any of you guys ever seen a Broncos-Raiders game?'

UPDATE Peace offering: here's an embed of Keith's clip:

I'll leave the name misspelled; Iím still pissed.

I will abide by your dictum, jk; I will only point out that your misspelling of both the first and last names of the QB in question gives me the right to believe you bear him no love either. I hope y'all know I was really rooting hard for the Broncos.

If a brief moment of levity will help, by the way, then - submitted for your consideration - I offer you this, which is making the rounds in Southern California and going viral. My feelings won't be hurt if you opt to delete this comment, but here is what I hope is truly the best medicine:

This is a bitter pill brother, I know, but repeat after me: "This is a rebuilding year." So they might not make the playoffs this year. Big deal!

Every win this season pushes the Broncos further down the draft order, which is counterproductive in the club's desperate mission to improve on the current state of talent - Brandon Marshall, Ryan Clady, and 20 guys named Steve.

All I can add is...


Santa came early last night, although it might be just that one trip.
