Trash Talk A Geaux Geaux

Tom Brady is 3 yards and a cloud of dust away from 1,000 rushing yards for his career. You laugh, but among the best QB’s in recent memory, Brady trails only Fran Tarkenton, Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre and Big Ben. That is kind of shocking. To give you an idea, Dan Marino has a total career net rushing yards of 87. Not so good. In fairness, Brady is still almost 900 yards behind Favre and a little over 1,700 behind Rodgers. But, still, give it up for TB12.

Speaking of which, TB12, Bill Bel and the boys host Mr. Rodgers and the Pack for Sunday Night Football on NBC. The game counts a LOT more for the Cheeseheads than it does the Pats. Minnesota is not running away with the NFC Norske, and the Bears are still the Bears. But, still, GB needs this win bad. They “should” have beaten the unbeaten Rams last week and did not by a fluke. Still, a loss is a loss, and they need a win. Bad. I’ll still take the Pats though if betting with money.

Frankl;y, the game that interests me the most other than that is the Bolts at Squawks. San Diego….er Los Angeles Chargers at Anaheim, has bee surprisingly good early. That is something. The Seahawks have been gelling in the mid part of the season. This could be one hell of a game. Rams at Nawlins is getting all the jaw. And it should be a great game. The Saints are doing great this year, and I think they may have enough to clear the Rams in a shootout at the Superdome.

That brings us to the student athlete section of Trash. Really, every eye will be on Alabama at LSU. Heck, I hate the SEC and even I am excited about this game. Crimson Tide is favored by like 14 points, which is a hellish lot considering the game is in Baton Rouge. I will not make a pick, but what the hell is the balance in college football if Vegas oddsmakers (who are overall VERY good) place Bama up by that much on the road against the legitimately number 4 rated team in the country? GEAUX TIGERS!!

I would love to think Kentucky can handle the Georgia Bulldogs at home in Lexington. Sadly, I do not. The beginning of the end for the magical run for UK ends today. I would also love to think that Herm Edwards and ASU can “win the games” against Utah at home today in Tempe. Again, sadly, I cannot. The Utes are scary underrated and good. It should be an incredibly beautiful scene at Sun Devil Stadium. People talk about great venues to watch college football, but until you have been to a packed Sun Devil Stadium for a beautiful fall game, you don’t know. Also, best of luck to the Fighting Journalists of Northwestern as they host the eternally hard to love Irish Domers!

Okay, that is it. Music today by the Stones, with Star Star. Better known as Starfucker. Has always been speculation about who the song referred to, and I am not going to geaux there.

    Speaking of The Pack…

    Ty “never run it out of the end zone and fumble in that situation” Montgomery – OK get that.

    Ha Ha – help me . Too much money for the performance ?

    In NCAA football, I’m loving the outcome of the Maryland saga. The President wanted to fire the coach after his abusive methods were exposed and a player died, the Board of Regents overruled him and commissioned a bogus investigation that tried to give the coach cover, the President resigned, and guess what, everyone in the world is convinced that Board of Regents screwed up and the coach still needed to be fired. The President, before he goes, knowing the Board has no leverage anymore, fired the coach, and in the ensuing uproar, the Chair of the Board of Regents resigned before he’s run out of town.

    The President had warned the Board that anything less than firing the coach was going to be a disaster, but the Board loves that bigtime football and saw the coach as the kind of rootin’ tootin’ hardcore yeller that means bigtime football to them, never mind the abuse. What a bunch of heartless idiots.

    I may be boycotting the Irish on TV, but I still want them to win out this year. Notre Dame may not be the cleanest program in NCAA football, but it sure as hell beats the others in the top 25.

    • Peterr says:

      Win out? C’mon, Ed. Where are your principles?

      Surely a loss today would be good for developing their moral character.

    • Ed Walker says:

      Looks like moral character will have to wait. Maybe the Almighty is saving that for when the Irish play either Clemson or Alabam. I hope.

  4. bmaz says:

    Kentucky has given up only 12 touchdowns all year, but Georgia has three of them today.

    Was a hell of a run for the  Wildcats, but think it is over……

  5. jo6pac says:

    Your back.

    9ers third string Q wins the game against a team the chuckie has destroyed. We are now wonder do the 9ers start him again against the Giants who have good D so we can tell if he is for real or going back to their losing ways.

    There was a f-1 race and someone won something? It was the same race as before with F. A. going out of the race a few laps from the start and Danny R breaking down near the end. Sad.

    Go Warriors

    • bmaz says:

      I swear to gawd, I think Alonso is still maybe the best driver on the grid. But there is just no way to know with him stuck in the McLaren. Oh well, he had a good run back in the day.

  6. X says:

    And again the Buckeyes look mega-sucky.  Meyer seems to have told team he won’t be back next year, Schiano remains tainted and let’s give Ryan Day a shot. I predict that he won’t be next next Cooper. In the OSU v UM game, “Throw away the  record,” but, Harbaugh must think this is the year.

  7. oldoilfieldhand says:

    I don’t comment much on football. Primarily because I am disgusted about the fact that most of the people in the stands are beer swilling rednecks and most of the players are inner city and rural black men whose only path to college was the gridiron. Also too,  maybe my memory is longer than yours, but wasn’t there another quarterback that was such a run threat when he rolled out (sometimes, I admit he was running for his life) that the linebackers were basically playing on the defensive line? I believe his name was Archie Manning. He may not draw your attention the way Brady, Favre, Big Ben and Rogers have, primarily because no one in the Saints management thought much about an offensive line back then,  but you went all the way back to Fran Tarkenton…so…

    Trash talk for all to enjoy as desired, but esp. for Rayne, who I presume is busy GOTV.

    Jacob Wohl came for Chrissy Teigen.  Not really any need to say more, but that you have to see the additional graphs proffered under the Wohl tweet:

    christine teigen on Twitter: “can someone break down with jacob wohl did in one tweet. like a cliffs note please – my timeline is a mess I don’t have the energy”

    Jacob Wohl on Twitter: “I became more famous than you. That’s what happened.… ”

    christine teigen on Twitter: “This is literally just a graph proving people had to google your dumbass to figure out who you are… ”

  9. somecallmetim says:

    Fran gained some yards? All I remember is the many creative looong scrambles ending in passes.

    Don’t know if many were caught.

  10. Pete says:

    Florida is hot and sunny.

    Arizona is hot and sunny.

    Why do we get so many of the nut jobs?  It isn’t us old timer natural born Miami Floridians I can tell ya.

    From time-to-time there has been talk about splitting Florida in two along the I-4 corridor.  I was all for that until Trump laundered Mar-a-Lago – we’d get him.

    Of course the Key West Conchs have always wanted to be the separate Conch Republic.

    • bmaz says:

      I have been away more than a few summers to Santa Monica, and a couple of years of grad school in Boulder, but am an actual rare Arizona native who has really lived here most all my life. Arizona Republicans did not used to be batshit. But, jesus, now…..

      It is changing, though, with time, the demographics are catching up to them. Also, keep the Key West Conchs. They are cool.

  11. Pete says:

    Brockvember and possibly Brockcember. I don’t see a Brockuary in the cards unless weeks slips into early Jan.

    Fins Tannehill has a shoulder capsule injury on throwing arm and slow to heal at best.

  12. scribe says:

    And my Stillers just won, going into Balmer, taking care of business, winning their fourth in a row and staying in first place in the AFC North.

    And James Conner scored another TD, setting something of a record.  From the recap of last week’s game in the Post-Gazette: “… Conner hasn’t just replaced Bell.  He has been better than Bell last season. … Conner has made Bell almost an afterthought in the Steelers locker room.”

    LeVeon who?

    And tonight it’s the Cheating Cheaters of Cheatertown, featuring The Return of Gronk the Fragile, this time with Extra Aging.  I’ll be watching reruns of The Avengers, with Honor Blackman as Catherine Gale.  Whatever product King Roger the Clown and his minions manage to cough up (except for my Stillers, of course) can’t compare.  Just wish those old episodes had better sound quality….

    • Pete says:

      As long as you aren’t protesting the Meat Packers from Title Town with a wedge of Cheese on the side please enjoy Ms. Blackman.

      • scribe says:

        I suspect you haven’t been around here long enough to appreciate the depths of both my devotion to the Stillers and the Black and Gold and my antipathy to Cheatin’ Bill and the Cheating Cheaters of Cheatertown.  While the Packers did defeat (narrowly) my Stillers in the Super Bowl held in February 2011 (that would be XLV to the Romans in the room, I think), I hold no grudges there.  OTOH, don’t get me started about New England.  The only football figure I disdain more is King Roger the Clown*.  The radio guy who accosted King Roger the Clown in a supermarket demanding he “Free Tom Brady” is perhaps the only New England fan I tolerate.

        But all of that would only become apparent after following my football commentary since the days of The Next Hurrah.

        *Well, there are Vontase Burfict, and the Dallas Owboys, but they’re not in issue here.

  13. scribe says:

    Some recent Stiller history, in case you were wondering why…

  14. Pete says:

    Over the years watching Brees as a Fins Follower I have been able to moderate my feelings just a tad:

    1) Fins with Nick Saban – yes that Nick Saban – passed on Brees for Daunte Culpepper in 2005.

    2) As if that wasn’t enough, Dave Wandstadt, passed on drafting him out of college in 2001 with the first round 26th pick. They took CB Jamar Fletcher and he wanted OK Josh Heupel. Fins didn’t think Brees would be better than Jay Fiedler. Brees went to SD in first pick of 2nd round – 32.

    At least Fins were not permitted to screw up Brees’ career.

    But, sniff none the less.

  15. scribe says:

    Drew Fookin’ Brees!  And a cell phone hidden under the padding of the goalpost.

    If you’re gonna break the rules … you might as well do it right.

      • scribe says:

        Thing is, since the Rams were the last undefeated team, that means the ’73 Dolphins will be delivering the case of champagne to the Saints, right?

        What could possibly go wrong with that in Party Town USA, a/k/a NOLA?

        • Pete says:

          Hey, youngster.  That would be the 72 Dolphins.  But I’ll cut you some slack cause they won the SB in Jan 1973.

    • bmaz says:

      Two things for Scribe:

      1) It really does look like the Stillers have righted the ship and are headed off on a roll. And it is the right time to be doing that moving into the second half of the season.

      2) Saints look good. Though the second half of the schedule for them is tough with two games against the Panthers, one against the Falcons (also looking better lately) and one against yer Steelers. That is a tough road to plow to keep homefield advantage.

    Brady seduces Rodgers?

    “Brady’s studied all kinds of quarterbacks over the years. Favre. Manning. Brees. But when it comes to mechanics and efficiency, one stands out. “Aaron Rodgers,” he said, “probably has the best mechanics in the NFL — probably in the history of the NFL.” — Twitter

    Scribe needs a new moniker, Rodgers a tune-up.

    Solving Pharisees hate:

    Step 1 – BMAZ, buy Pharisee a $38 ticket from cheap, for the December 16th Steelers v Patriots game.

    Step 2- Procure a black and gold dunce hat emblazoned with 2009, the last time the Steelers won the NFL championships, and a picture of Mike Tomlin.

    Step 3- Give Pharisee a round trip Uber ticket from his abode to Heinz Stadium.

    Step 4 – Have him sit in the corner, live blogging the game.

    Step 5 – The results: No longer a dim-witted simpleton, rather a new and improved contributor to Trash Talk, Inc… warning, these steps are designed to provide helpful treatments for a vast majority of Patriot-haters. Condition varies based on location.

    Who knew they had a star-shaped dance floor in Jerryworld?

    And that the Owboys wouldn’t even bother to Defend The Star?
