NFL Lowdown: Week 9

Thankful to be in a part of New Jersey that stayed high and dry this week so I could compare the Falcons to a bag of lima beans and speculate on how Andy Reid will prepare for blizzards. Also by me on Sports on Earth is a long form about the role of Christianity in football throughout history. Check it out! (I do so many different things over there that I cannot really XP them all).

1. The Falcons might be offerimg organic free trade pinto beans, but what I really want is organic grass-fed beef.

2. A QB rebounding against the Browns is not a story.

3. The Lions would salivate at the prospect of seeing Tebow in a Jags uniform this week.

3. They sure did enjoy seeing Tebow in Denver last year

The 2010 Seahawks and 2011 Tebows both proved that you can suck and still win a playoff game given the right conditions.

Meanwhile, the Lions have trounced Tebow thoroughly already, while, sadly, the Raiders have come out on the losing end.

Raider Joe:

So what explains the mispellings and faulty grammar in posts 1-999,999? Touch-typing fails?

Nice job on the religion and football piece.

Agreed. I really liked that, but an extra point would drive a coach & horses through rule #1

Phil Simms is a Cretin.

Given that lima beans appear to have been named for Lima, Peru, why do we call them "l-eye-ma beans"?
