NFL Kickoff Open Thread

I meant to post this last night, but have been buried up to my neck in changes to my fantasy football website. Throw out your predictions for the season in the comments below. Will the Seahawks be a .500 team? Can they win the division? Does the old man in Minnesota have another year in him like last year (didn’t look that way last night)? Will McNabb and Shanahan make the Redskins a winner? Can the Cowboys become the first team to play in their home stadium for the Super Bowl? Has the NFL milked the Saints-Katrina storyline enough, or is there still some juice in that raisin?

    Glort’s predictions:

    Seahawks will be right at .500 and not make the playoffs

    Vikings have a good shot…they are my sentimental favorite

    Saints will probably go all the way and win superbowl.

    Redskins will still be a loser this year.

    goldy asks:
    Has the NFL milked the Saints-Katrina storyline enough, or is there still some juice in that raisin?

    I dont know, as long as the dems keep milking it, not sure why the NFL shouldnt do the same.

    The hawks have signed six players cut by other teams in the past week? That’s desperation, not a team that’s going to compete for the division. They’ll be lucky to finish at .500.

    Zotz sez: Puddybud is just another word for arschloch spews:

    Pro sports? Sports, period. Meh…

    What a waste of time, energy, and money.

    I can think of a pile of things more productive to do than sit in front of the TV machine and consume mass quantities of beer and munchies.

    The thing that really makes me scratch my head and marvel is how a bunch of supposedly rational progressives buy-in to the corporately driven tribal bullshit. It is total bullshit.

    Zotz,

    for some of us, it’s just cheap entertainment, a way to forget about the real problems in the world for a couple hours. And yeah, there are too many who take the whole tribalism part way too far.

    @4
    I’ve loved football since I was a kid, and the NFL is still a showcase of the very best football players in the world competing against each other. There are things about the league I’d change if I were commissioner, but I think overall it does a good job with its relations to the fans and communities. The success of the NFL hasn’t been corporate-driven. It’s been driven by fans like me who’ve enjoyed the product they put out.

    division winners: Dolphins, Titans, Ravens, Chargers, Giants, Panthers, Packers, 49ers.

    Wild Card; Colts, Bengals, Saints, Falcons.

    Ravens over Packers in The Bowl.

    that’s it….that IS the list.

    re 4

    Maybe because it’s, I don’t know….fun?

    Maybe hanging out with your boys or your buddies (or better, both) and getting a cheap testosterone high while rooting on the Hawks is a waste of time. So is reading Dean Koontz or PG Wodehouse or watching an old Indiana Jones flick. Fun without other reward can be allowable on occasion, though, don’t you think?

    Best throwaway movie moment ever? Indiana Jones in the open air market with the black clad Arab swordsman. Guy wheels the weapon around in a display of swordsmanship, expecting a drawn out fight. Jones gets an exasperated look, pulls a pistol and shoots him. Total guy moment. No complete sentences there, but oh well.

    The Seahawks will win 6 games, max and Matt will play his last game ever as a Seahawk sometime in November.

    Those are some bold picks there, I like it (but the Giants? they’ll be watching the playoffs on TV).

    Daddy Love spews:

    I wwent over the Seahawk schedule last night because a buddy and I have a running prediction payoff-free “bet” every season. I see them at 6-10.

    But I don’t think Matt Hasselbeck is leaving. He’s not the problem.

  12. 15

    Steve spews:

    “It is total bullshit.”

    I kinda lean that way these days but if pressed, Seahawks 7 – 9 and the Huskies 7 – 5 and playing in a minor bowl game a couple of weeks before Boise State does to Alabama what Utah did to them a couple of years ago.

  13. 16

    spews:

    Hasselboink will retire after getting KTFO’d in Week 3, Whitehurst fails to win a game the rest of the season, and Pete drafts Jake Locker with the #1 pick in April, who then promptly goes to A ball for the spring while holding out and blows his throwing shoulder out. Let’s just say that the Fail is so strong with them, a strike/lockout/whatever next year might be the best thing to happen for the Fleahawks.

    Roger Rabbit just got home from a two-day hospital stay after suffering complications from surgery earlier this week, and will resume straightening out you America-hating unpatriotic trolls after a couple of days of bed rest.

  17. 21

    spyder spews:

    The NFC west is just really poor playing teams across the board. The fact that one team has to beat another in division play will put a win or two in that column, but will not playoffs make. If the Seahawks went 8-8 they could win the division; but it looks like 49ers will probably move on.

    Im surprised the little girly-man YLBleeder had the nuzack to post in this thread.

    shouldnt you be playing a computer game or something?

  19. 25

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @22 I may be going back to the ER or hospital tonight as I’m still having problems.

    The good news is I have the results of Wednesday’s biopsy surgery back and there’s no cancer. All I have is bladder stones and an inflamed bladder. It’s VERY inflamed, though. I pissed out about half of my bladder stones a few minutes before surgery. (The urologist washed out most of the rest while I was under, so I should be nearly stone-free at this moment.) The bad news is I bled a lot after the surgery, and blood clots blocked my urinary tract.

    Tract blockage and fluid retention in the bladder is a fairly common medical problem in older male rabbits and humans, especially those with enlarged prostates. An enlarged prostate creates a constriction in the urinary tract. This is where stones or blood clots are most likely to lodge and cause a blockage, although you can get plugged up anywhere in the pipe.

    A total blockage accompanied by fluid retention in the bladder, this is a medical emergency. It won’t kill you, because your bladder can stretch and therefore won’t rupture from overfilling, but you may wish you were dead because the pain is extreme. This is the kind of pain you can bear only because you have no choice about bearing it.

    For that reason, Group Health’s ER prioritizes bladder blockage/retention right behind chest pain. Showing up at the ER with this problem puts high on the ER priority list — the only ER patients ahead of you are people having heart attacks or chest pain. So when I arrived at the ER early yesterday morning in unbearable pain, I got immediate medical attention. By then I’d had a total blockage for around 6 hours. I waited too long; I should have wakened Mrs. Rabbit during the night and had her drive me to the ER as soon as I stopped being able to piss. It takes only a couple of hours for the bladder to fill up once your urinary tract is blocked.

    According to the ER nurses, my bladder can hold about 600 ML of fluid without stretching. When they inserted the catheter and it pushed past the obstruction (which was a large blood clot), over 1000 ML of mixed blood and urine gushed out. The pain relief was almost instanteous. That’s the good news; the moment they get the catheter in, you leave Hell and rejoin the living. But for the time when your bladder is stretched beyond normal capacity, the pain is almost indescribable. The ER people see grown men cry all the time.

    So, guys, if you can’t piss and it’s starting to hurt or you’re experiencing spasms, DON’T WAIT, get to an ER as fast as you can, because it’s not gonna get better — the pain is going to get much worse and very rapidly. Once your tract is blocked, you have only a couple of hours to get that catheter in. And, of course, don’t drink or eat anything, because you don’t want to add more fluid to the fluid already accumulated in your bladder.

    After the ER, they kept me in the hospital about 30 hours before sending me home this afternoon without a catheter. I’m now having painful rapid-fire spasms, but I’m pissing a little, so I know I only have a partial blockage at this moment. I just got off the phone with my urologist and he told me to try medications I already have in my possession. If that doesn’t tame the spasms, I’ll have to return to the ER tonight to get a catheter put back in. It’s possible they’ll toss me back into the hospital.

    So, if Roger Rabbit disappears from the comment threads again for a few days, don’t take heart from that, trolls! I’m not dead! I’ll be back! My current medical problems obviously take precedence over you asswipes. In fact, everything takes precedence over you, including wiping my ass, although I don’t need to wipe my ass just now because I’ve been constipated since Tuesday. If I’m not here posting, all it means is I’m saving up my insults and you troll traitors will simply get the much more thrown at you when I return to HA and resume dishing out your just desserts. You trolls WILL go to Hell for voting Republican, and when you get there the eternal punishment you’ll experience will make my medical problems look like child’s play. You can count on it! If you don’t believe me, just ask the Great Mother Rabbit Spirit what’s in store for you. You think my bladder hurts, wait until yours is the size of moon and you can’t piss for 100 million years! Sayonara, trolls! You have nooooo idea what’s gonna happen to youuuuu …

    spews:

    I feel that kinda pain Roger, so I sympathize with you. Passed a kidney stone two Fridays ago while gigging in Shreveport, LA. And the Vicodin they gave me for the pain plugged me up but(t) good, unable to eat solid food for five days and throwing up more in that time than I had in the last five years. I followed that up with being attacked by a pitbull the following Friday. No, seriously. I’m writing about all my adventures at the blog you can link to from my name above.

    Get well soon, Roger!

    Why is the “religion of peace” ready to destroy Christian artifacts at a moment’s notice while we are to “watch” in wonder and cower in fear?

    Why is it libtardos are mum?

    Why hasn’t Odumba told the Moslem world to stop burning our flag?

    How come Petraeus can got political over the Koran burning and could talk to the press while McChrystal, a DUMMOCRAPT, tells the truth off the record and gets fired?

    How many more peeps will Odumba’s merry band of fools put out of work with their useless legislation?

    Puddybud identifies zotz as another arschloch and as a dumb brick spews:

    Oh my someone from “flyover” country getting the CMOH Congressional Medal of Honor for acting honorably with courage in the line of file while the libtardo 9 Circus of Appeals said any DUMMOCRAPTIC schmuck like Xavier Alvarez can claim to a CMOH winner and libtardos don’t care. He’s gotta be a DUMMOCRAPT because your kind always lines up to fradulently acquire something of value without working for it. It’s called a handout!

    Recently Odumba’s EEOC declared that business owners can’t use your criminal history as a reason to deny someone a job. If John Dillinger was alive today he could demand a job in a bank. Winona Rider can get a job in the store where she stole an expensive purse. And, Puddy sees business being forced must now hire child molesters in jobs that interact with children. Can you say all those fired molesting teachers getting their jobs back?

    GBS do you care?

  25. 31

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @30 Yeah, isn’t that great? Bush gave CMOHs only to dead people, and only a couple of them. He wanted to save money so he could give tax breaks to billionaires.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Washington carried out an execution early this morning. While I don’t want our state to become a Texas, I support having a death penalty, sparingly used, for exceptionally heinous murderers. This particular subhuman monster offered no words of apology, regret, remorse, or comfort to the victim’s family in his final statement. All he did was complain about being put to death while some other killers get life. Letting the state take a human life isn’t so bad when the life being taken is as worthless and useless as this guy’s. Good riddance.

    spews:

    I’ll agree that Islam can be appear very alien to us. But those who commit these crimes in the name of Islam are no more representative of their faith than say, Fred Phelps or Avigdor Liebermann are of theirs. The problem is absolute literal interpretation of scriptures that in some cases have very little relevance (if any at all) to the the reality we all live in.

    Anyone been to the Crab Pot lately? You do know that according to Leviticus 11:10 that shellfish is taboo, right? On top of that, Verses 7 & 8 proscribe pork. But a lot of God-fearing Christians chow down anyway regardless. We just know that nobody takes Leviticus seriously anymore, unless they want to use it to attack someone with verses from it. Absolute literal interpretation, that’s what makes otherwise rational people do incredibly stupid things. And that’s the problem with all religions, not just the convenient enemy of the moment.

    Don’t like Beck eh? Well he is making libtardos like you see red… like your Commie friends!

    So tell my ylb, since daddy love and correctnotright are afraid to answer, why don’t Congressional DUMMOCRAPTS run on their voting record? Why are they running away from OdumbaCare to get reerected this November? Have you noticed your wife’s premiums going up this October due to OdumbaCare mandates? And… you can’t get the benefits until 2014.

    spews:

    42 – Limbaugh lies every day. He makes a lot of money from it.

    No one has to buy lies. But we all know many do.

    At the end of the day, people like Limbaugh and Beck can say it’s “just entertainment”.

    And why couldn’t a single right wing politician in 2008 put the world “REPUBLICAN” on their website?

    Simple, the polls showed without a doubt that “REPUBLICAN” meant unpopular.

    No politician can hide from their voting record. If people want to knee-jerk to the Faux News line only they can catch themselves before they do something stupid and they make things even worse for themselves.

    Alvarez got into “trouble” for misrepresenting his military service. He had none.

    If you have evidence that the rabbit has done anything like that, present it.

    And I won’t tell you to otherwise “STFU” because harsh reality says there’s no way in the universe to expect that in this forum unless Goldy does to you what he did to Stamn and JCH.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @50 The military and veterans communities are sensitive to misrepresentation of military service and false claims to have been awarded high military honors. This is referred to as “stolen honor.” When you look at what real heroes did, you realize it’s wrong to let people who did nothing get away with claiming to have earned the same honors.

    I had the privilege of serving with one of the Vietnam war’s CMOH recipients. He was 20 years old when he sacrificed his life to save 4 other men, all of whom survived the war and have lived full lives because this individual gave up his life to save theirs. It is hard to comprehend what it means to voluntarily die at the age of 20 until you are old and have lived a full life. He has none of the things the rest of us take for granted. He didn’t get to be married, have children, or enjoy grandchildren. He lost everything before he had a chance to have anything that makes life worth living. That sacrifice is deserving of the highest honor our country can bestow.

    Later, when I served in the Army Reserve, I had the privilege of befriending another Vietnam hero. He holds the DSC, the second highest military award. He went to Vietnam as an infantry private. His plane began taking fire before it landed, and he was in combat the moment his boots hit the tarmac. The airfield was under attack. He was in continuous action for four days and nights, without rest, and by the end of the week 90% of his company were casualties, all of the officers and NCOs were dead or wounded, and he took command of the remnants of his company and led the survivors in battle. Probably none of them would have survived without his leadership. He was given a field commission — he was promoted from private to captain in his first week in Vietnam, and continued to serve as an officer and company commander during the rest of his Vietnam tour. He was initially awarded a Silver Star, which ultimately was upgraded to a DSC after his case was reviewed for upgrade to the Congressional Medal of Honor. He is a modest guy who doesn’t wear his medals when he goes on army bases. Virtually all big-time war heroes are like that, they’re almost embarrassed to have these medals, and they’ll tell you they don’t feel they deserve these honors because there’s so many guys who did more than they did who didn’t get the recognition because nobody survived to tell their story or for some other reason. To them, they were just doing their job.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @52 Thank you, lost. I’ve been spared the worst, but I may have a rough recovery road ahead of me. It’s possible I’ll never be able to piss again without a rubber hose stuck up my fuckstick unless I have pipe enlargement surgery. I may find out within a few days.

    50 – Roger I honor your service. It really offended me that Puddybud compared you to Alvarez.

    Hopefully the more intelligent of the HA libtardos sees that ylb didn’t attack Puddy over his cheering of the 9th Circus decision. He failed in his attack against Puddy equating him and Alvarez as fools because everyone knows ylb is a fool!

    Still waiting for the HA Libtardo class to tell Puddy why Congressional and Senate DUMMOCRAPTS are not running on their record to get reerected. Thwy are in lying mode, fradulently trying to acquire something they don’t deserve… another 2 or 6 year sting in WA DC!

    So you have common cause with a chickenshit who challenged GBS to show at DL putting a grand on the table and then … the chickenshit (at #23 to be perfectly clear) blew it off.

    FAIL!!!!

    Representative John T. Salazar, a Democrat from Colorado who introduced the bill in 2005, said he was disappointed with the court’s ruling. In a statement, Mr. Salazar said, “I am confident that upon appeal to the Supreme Court their misguided decision will be overturned. We live in a society that wants to honor our nation’s veterans.” He added, “As long as I am in Congress, I will not give up the effort to protect their honor. These fake heroes use lies to claim undeserved federal veterans benefits and defraud their communities into believing they are someone they are most certainly not for personal gain.”

    All three judges were nominated by Republican presidents.

    Heh. Puddybud defends a law introduced by a Dem Party legislator, struck down by 2 judges nominated by REPUBLICAN Presidents.

    That’s what happens when Dems try to play Republican-lite.

    Puddybud identifies zotz as another arschloch and as a dumb brick spews:

    Heh, Yep Puddy does Ethnic Fool. A good law is a good law, because having military family members taught what valor and honor means. Things not found in the ylb family tree.

    Heh, FAIL? – Your buds in the ACLU agree with Xavier Alverez and the two Republican nominated judges ylb. The ACLU said it was a violation of free seppech. The ACLU is still the whackjob organization it always is.

    Heh, Since you haven’t said you disagree with the decision even after Puddy gave you another chance in #72, that puts you in agreement with the ACLU again and the two Republican nominated judges and against current public opinion.

    Heh, Butt that’s nothing new.

    3 judges – two yes, one no.

    The two judges said

    We have no doubt that society would be better off if Alvarez would stop spreading worthless, ridiculous, and offensive untruths. But, given our historical skepticism of permitting the government to police the line between truth and falsity, and between valuable speech and drivel, we presumptively protect all speech, including false statements, in order that clearly protected speech may flower in the shelter of the First Amendment.

    Now since ylb doesn’t actually read much he doesn’t know who the dissenting judge is…

    The Supreme Court has told us consistently that the general rule is that false statements of fact are unprotected and has carved out certain limited exceptions to this principle in certain contexts. … Alvarez’s knowingly false statement is excluded from the limited spheres of protection carved out by the Supreme Court for false statements of fact necessary to protect speech that matters, and it is therefore not entitled to constitutional protection.

    They voted down the law as unconstitutional. Does Puddy agree with them? NOPE! Just the same way many of you libtardos disagreed with the Kelo Eminent Domain decision of 2006 where the libtardo wing allows cities to take precious land from families where it was in their possession for generations.

    Well you see ylb being the dummy you are on the no judge…

    Bybee signed that legal memorandum which defined “enhanced interrogation techniques” in ways that are regarded as torture by the Obama Justice Department, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, some medical experts in the treatment of torture victims, some intelligence officials, and American allies. This memo has been the source of controversy and calls for his impeachment. Bybee is currently the subject of a war crimes investigation in Spain, as well as the subject of an investigation by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

    Search the nets fool.

    Even Chucky Schumer liked ByBee:

    Democrats who opposed Bybee’s nomination cited concerns that he might be an ideologically driven conservative activist if given a lifetime appointment on a federal appellate court.

    Sen. Charles Schumer, one of 26 Democrats who voted for Bybee, said he might not have supported the Nevadan if he had been nominated for a different court. But Schumer said Bybee will help moderate the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    “The 9th Circuit is by far the most liberal court in the country,” Schumer said. “It’s the court that gave us the pledge of allegiance case, which is way out of the mainstream on the left side, and therefore I think that Jay Bybee will provide some balance.”

    You see ethnic fool, there is an undercurrent here. Puddy is glad to see ByBee stick to his pronciples and Puddy disagrees with the other two.

    And we have seen what leftist academic theories from Berkeley has done to our economy! The professor had no clue and admitted it in her farewell luncheon. No experience making payroll. No experience creating a budget. No experience hiring or firing. All she did was occupy a tenured position and create useless theories which her leftist colleagues ate up and blessed. Now we are living in the mess.

    The judges’ legal reasoning appears sound.

    You’re a documented liar Puddybud.

    we presumptively protect all speech, including false statements, in order that clearly protected speech may flower in the shelter of the First Amendment.

    The judges were protecting YOUR ASS too!

    There’s consequences for telling lies Puddybud. There’s no need for the State to become involved.

    Bigger government? Apparently Puddy is spot on again, you have no one with any military history in your straight line family tree. Yep you proved Puddy right again.

    Lostinaseaofblue, you’re the only person I’ve ever heard of who reads both Dean Koontz and Wodehouse. Odd. Jeeves and Bertie Wooster rule, but Koontz is complete trash– his shit will rot your brain in worse ways than even reality television or kiddy hip-hop. For the sake of your cultural I.Q., toss this shit in the trash, now!

    And Seahawks fans: you’re totally fucked. The second-best Pats coach ever, Bill Parcells, once told a reporter he couldn’t stand celebrity quarterbacks. He had no use for them. I think Parcells is wrong, but this anti-celebrity principal makes sense when applied to coaches. Pete Carroll, for instance. You know, that Pete Carroll, the penultimate-worst Pats coach ever (only Rod Rust surpasses Pete Carroll in badness). As the season unfolds, watch as your celebrity coach botches one play call after another. I’ve seen it. I’ve been through it. It’s excruciating. It sucks. It sucks just like Pete Carroll’s drafts. Remember Andy Katzenmoyer? No? That’s probably because he never started a single game (even though he was a highly touted Big 10 linebacker and a first round pick).

    Only two years after Bob Kraft sacked Pete Carroll the Pats won SB36. Only four of Carroll’s draft picks– Kevin Faulk, Damien Woody, Tebucky Jones and Antwain Smith– were on that team. The other 49 roster spots were held by players drafted or signed by Belichick or Parcells. Bill Parcells hadn’t been with the team in five years, yet he had twice as many players on the roster as Pete Carroll!

    Know fear, Seahawks fans. Know fear.

    Oh, and I almost forgot: this blog post was about football, not politics. Goldy should be commended for this. Real human beings are not ALL POLITICAL ALL THE TIME. Shame on all the people, both left and right, who posted politically-oriented comments here. Is American culture so politicized, are the culture wars so out of control and jacked-up to fever pitch, that otherwise sane people will introduce politics into a conversation about sports? C’mon people, even Keith Olbermann knows better.

    Salazar. Yeah! He’s playing Republican-lite. Or doing what politicians do to stay politically viable. Thank heavens for the Courts to strike down anger or fear-based, just plain BAD law.

    And as for the people – like with Prop 8, like with Jim Crow – many times the majority is just plain WRONG. Can you dig it?

    People who died protecting your right to be not only an ASSHOLE, but a FOOL and a MORON supporting this idiot?

    And protecting your right to lie about being MWS and circle jerk with your sock puppet. Protecting Limbaugh to lie everyday. People don’t have to listen to him. I don’t. No one has to hire a fabulist like Alvarez.

    Orange man in the white house?

    Uh, uh.. House OF REPRESENTATIVES. Sheesh.. You jet-lagged or something?

    The Orange Man (Boehner for the challenged among us) also happens to be golf addict. Yeah what “new” leadership..

    Puddy’s feeling are not hurt.

    Nahh.. You’re angry and you want to throw people in jail for it.

    Got to have a better reason to deny someone else his liberty Puddybud. The offensive words that dribble out of someone’s mouth don’t cut it. If there was a law against being offensive your ass would have been behind bars long ago.

    What kind of a “conservative” are you?

    you are as dumb as dirt.

    And now some right wing bullshit rag you read has you disparaging Republican judges for striking down a law from a Dem politician. Who’d thunk it?

    “Wodehouse”

    Wodehouse wrote some great golf stories. The thought of that woman in the skiff on the water as she prepared to take another whack at the ball exclaiming, “Playing 87!”, still cracks me up. He understood what the game is all about.

    It strikes me that Puddy is coming off as being a little bit kazier than usual. In fact, his mental state seems to be such that his head could explode at any minute. Hmm, I’m thinking it’s that meds thing again.

    Please feel free to discuss-

    Re 91

    My first exposure to Koontz was in Italy, a book called The Face. A 600 year old stone house in a half populated village, read by a fire, is the perfect setting for this kind of book.

    Koontz is mostly a hack writer putting out a lot of garbage. Not even great authors have 40 books in them of any value. Hugo wrote the sublime Les Miserables and the mediocre Hunchback. Melville was pitch perfect with Moby Dick. But most of his other novels, while readable, aren’t great. Conrads Heart of Darkness is amazing. Nostromo? Not so much. Koontz obviously isn’t remotely in the same league with any of these authors. But when he does it right he is good light entertainment. The Face, the Odd Thomas books and one or two others aren’t great writing. But for light entertainment while on vacation, they aren’t bad.

    As for Wodehouse he holds a special place on my bookshelves. No matter the external stresses half an hour with his good hearted persiflage puts any amount of difficulties into perspective. Uncle Fred, Psmith, Blandings, and of course Jeeves and Wooster are some of the most consistently and repeatedly funny characters in the past 200 years of writing.
