This one goes out to Sandy Domski. If only I had the video of everyone doing it at Domski's wedding. Oh well, blame Silky Johnson.Alright, so no more holidays. And we've got Steelers football this weekend! Are y'all awake now?
Yes, it's true. Unfortunately, the Dolphins couldn't play like a division champ yesterday and fell hard to the Ravens Defense. Chad Pennington threw four picks. Fired.
And so we drew the Chargers. The Lightning Bolts. It's electric. Get it?
Anyways, remember that time when we were about to play the Chargers, like two months ago, and I said I was worried about Darren Sproles?
328 all purpose yards, was it on Saturday? HEYO!
But, given that...
LT = hurt
Gates = hurt...though you wouldn't know it by the game he put together
Vincent Jackson = held to ZERO catches by the COLTS defense
Rivers = 217 yards, no TDs and a pick
If Darren Sproles is our biggest worry, that's fine by me.
Not to mention, San Diego played that game against the Colts IN San Diego. This week they'll be once again traversing the nation to the much trodden field of Heinz. Nay, the permafrost that is the Pittsburgh field turf in January. You think that's going to be easy for a team who hails from a city with an average temperature of "warm as hell?"
Surf ain't up in the 'Burgh, dude.
Either way, I'm happy that we're not playing the Colts. Say what you want about that game on Saturday, I still wouldn't wanna play Peyton Manning, who, let it be noted, threw for 300+ yards (and ZERO picks) in a losing effort.
And while there's also a chance that we could play the Ravens again, that's not really a situation I can worry about right now. Let's say it comes to that - they'll still have just played the Titans, who hopefully will have beat the shit out of La'ron McClain and Joe Flacco, leaving them beaten and battered for Silverback to feast on. Plus, there's always a chance Ray Lewis could get arrested between now and next Sunday. So, you know, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
I haven't heard too many reports about Big Ben's
But, I also have to say (because I think Domski and I have had a cumulative three hours of conversation about it over the past week), the line better bring it's big boy pads. If those dudes can't block for Big Ben, shit could get real ugly. Also, running the ball. If we could do it effectively, that'd be pretty cool. But the new year's just begun. I'm reluctant to start wasting my wishes just yet.
Hey, at least the Chargers don't believe in holding...
You're not in
Get your act together.
Especially you, sir.
Notes from this weekend...
Damn, 8 years old and already on crystal meth. They grow up so fast these days.
So I hear you've got some free time, now. How's about you and me, you know, go get some cookies and milk?
So, the Chargers performance on Sunday, Big Ben's condition, the line's condition - Any thoughts?
PS - Check it out, OFTOT's on Twitter. Now, if I could only figure out how this thing works.
