NFL F-U Power Rankings: Week 9

10/31/13 in NFL   |   marcus_nyce   |   27100 respect

It's a tributeAll persons, places and things middle finger related in the form of an indiscriminate list without any set number of entries, on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis. Who knows? Middle fingers are completely organic and unpredictable.
 
 
#1 Roger Goodell: Per a Dead Spin article, a Missouri Court of Appeals judge declared the NFL’s arbitration policy “unconscionable and unenforceable.” Coincidentally, that ruling is very similar to the title of another Frontline documentary on Roger’s plan to eliminate headshots called, “Unconscious and Unenforceable.” [rim shot] Also, at some NFL women’s conference this week, Goodie had his wife tell all the mommies that their kids are more likely to get concussed “riding a bike than playing football.” Those Pre-K Oklahoma drills actually build character. And finally, NFL officials met with representatives of the Oneida Nation regarding a certain team’s name at an undisclosed location. That location just happened to be the law firm that represents the interests of a certain Washington based franchise’s trademarked slur. So, all’s well that ends well…
 
#2 Dan Snyder: D’OH! (Relax everybody that bloodied hoodie and black face costume Danny Boy wore for Halloween, was a “tribute” to Trayvon Martin.)
 
#3 Jason Tarver: The Raiders Defensive Coordinator double dipped by flipping his middle finger AND yelling F-Us at officials last week. He was a homophobic slur away from cursing for the cycle.
 
#4 Dez Bryant: The Cowboys released the audio from his Romo meltdown, trying to spin it into some kind of [air quotes] melt-up. “See, it’s all positive. He’s just passionate.” He’s passionate the same way a toddler is “passionate” about not getting what they want. It doesn’t change the fact that he needed to be separated from Jason Witten a few minutes later. Where’s that audio? He’s a young Terrell Owens. The league just spent the last month making everybody aware of cancer and the Cowboys clearly have a lump forming in their locker room. They need to hire the same company that cleared out the MRSA in Tampa Bay’s facilities and have them start a regimen of chemotherapy at Cowboy Stadium.
 
#5 Throwing Schiano: (That needs to be an Urban Dictionary term at this point.) Stories keep leaking out of Tampa about current and former players throwing shade all over the Bucs’ coach. It’s getting pretty ugly. Then, referencing the “Fire Schiano” billboards in his post game presser last week, he said that, “everyone is entitled to their opinions” and that he was just going to “start preparing to go get a win at Seattle.” Good luck with that. I’m sure at some point General Custer was also preparing to go get a win at Little Big Horn. Speaking of Seattle…
 
#6 Golden Tate: For effs sake, act like you’ve been there! Oh wait, that hardly ever happens. Never mind. His little moron trot into the end zone has led the NFL’s competition committee to take a closer look at their taunting rules. Great, more NFL rules to spin as safety measures because taunting hurts feelings :(
 
 
There is no “I” in F-U, but there is an EFF and a YOU.
 
“Till that day.”

God (and "God's Plan," which I considered the same thing) were from way back in the first two weeks.

Pretty much none of that was directed at you cept me telling you that Nyce is not black.

  • "tribute"...exactly.

For the record I don't agree with Bryant #4 because old white men in the media lecturing young black pro football players on anything but criminal behavior bothers me a lot.

Of course, you're black, and I'm cool with Tate backlash even if it's over the top because I'm still bitter about Fail Mary...

Well, I backed myself into a corner there.

Anyway, while we know Goodell is going to win this season, we finally have some separation and a true battle for 2nd! The current standings.

1. Roger Goodell 59
2. God 14
3. Greg Schiano 12
4. Dan Snyder 11

(Note: These four and the Bucs team are the only ones so far that have scored points on multiple occasions. God, Schiano, and Team MRSA twice, Snyder 3 times, and Goodell a whooping 8 times. Week 1 is the only time this year Goodell has not scored.)

5. Bill Belichick/Ray Lewis/Tom Brady 10 (1 win)
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 (0 wins)

I know "old white men" in the media like to be that way, but Dez completely lost it for an extended period of time. If it was just the Romo thing, then fine no biggie. The fact that it went on and on and he had to be physically restrained by a veteran team leader, while he was still yelling with another veteran team leader is a HUGE problem. That's why I made the toddler / T.O. / lump / cancer analogies. The worst part is Jerry and 'em are enabling it instead of snipping it in the bud.

So, is #5 Schiano, or someone or something else? It's important for the battle for 2nd (1st overall is clearly a foregone conclusion).

Yes it's Herr Führer Schiano.

I like that Cleveland mascot in the upper left.


They could change their name to the Cleveland Martyrs. They're blowing that team up every year anyway.

UGH with the Golden Tate thing! I've seen way worse "taunting"...almost weekly. He waved. Eesh. Don't get me wrong, I was ticked off and if he'd have drifted out of bounds like it appeared he was going to, I would be livid. He apologized though. That was a tough frustrating game for our offense...of course he's going to get overly excited to make a catch like that and know he was endzone bound.

I'm not sure why all of a sudden Tate's taunt gets the competition committee all fired up when stuff like that happens all the time. I'm about over my team being on MNF.

Like I said - if they start giving out Lombardi Trophies to all of the teams just for participating, I'm out.

Dammit as soon as I post this, The Dolphins go into Schiano mode. I should just put the whole state of Florida at #3 to be safe.
