SNF Live-Blog: SD-NE, 4th Quarter

Sunday, September 16, 2007


Coach Hobo, looking not quite so homeless, and I think that's a shirtless Jimmy Johnson. I share this nightmare fuel because we hurt the ones we love.

Chargers trying to work it in for another score, and Rivers hits Gates for a TD. Kaeding makes it 31-14.

Jesus, Knocked Up is going to be on DVD in two weeks? That was quick. Tom Brady's already got his copy on pre-order. HOLY CRAP, Ellis Hobbs just got stripped by the Chargers, and they've got the ball back. We may still have ourselves a game here. Rivers gets his bell rung by Mike Vrabel, and we've got 2nd and 20. Colvin the Magnificent sacks Rivers, who bumbled on the snap, and they're all the way back at midfield.

If you need a colossal fuck-up at a really bad time, this is it. Amazing. You get it back in field goal range, and you get sacked back into punting. Bump after the break is Jane's Addiction, "Been Caught Stealing," and it's ten times better than the crap he's doing on the college football Saturday Night theme.

I'm telling you, folks: we're witnessing the NORV! Effect right here. Mark my words. (Again, more shameless self-promotion.) Tony Romo looks like such a wanker in a backwards cap. Brady dishes it to Stallworth for some short yardage. Maroney busts through for a 1st, and I wonder if any of you are still around or have deserted for Yanks-Sawx.

Brady to Welker; 1st down again, he's hitting every receiver so hard and precisely that you're surprised Moss and Welker aren't four months along already.

You can see Billy Boy's penis outline...excuse me while I vomit. - Dummy

What do we call that, by the way? We've got camel toe for women, what's the slang term for the dick tracings in pants or shorts?

Andrea tells us the Jets may be looking into further investigation of Coach Hobo, who is deciding whether or not to put out a hit on Mangini right now. Maybe lace his donuts or cannoli.

Maroney busts through, but it's coming back for holding. Pats have 3rd and 3 after a couple good plays at the SD 44 , caught by Watson and he's busting his way down to the 30. I'm amazed at just how much tackling the Charger defense has forgotten to do.

Whoa....illegal mics. Can we call dibs on naming this Micgate? - AA

I promise to metaphysically cut anyone who does that (read: write a bitchy post at my place about it.)

You know, it's amazing that Marty Schottenheimer took several dog teams to near-Super Bowl levels, only to get fired. And then when Marty left, the teams soon went back in the toilet.

I just think it's interesting that it's happening again now. - Anon @ 10:54.

A good point, as Maroney gets tackled again after a short gain. I wasn't in the "fire Marty" camp at all, and A.J. Smith did it way too late to get anyone competent to coach the team. Is anyone going to notice that once you fire Marty, you get worse, and maybe give him the time he deserves? Maroney goes around the outside to run off more clock time. Brady hits Welker for the eighth time in the game.

Coach Hobo wants to run up the score, going for it on 4th and 1, and Sammy Morris gets the six. Nicely done, Master of Douchebaggery. 38-14, Pats.

I love that LDT ad for Vizio. I really do. I laugh every time and it's so simple and silly. Kickoff, downed, and bump this time is Cake's "Never There."

Rivers swings it out to Tomlinson for a couple of yards. He does it again, and why wasn't he doing more of this earlier? Probably because the defense was playing it harder, but if you have a player like LDT, he can get his in so many different ways that it's silly to go away from him as much as the Charger coaching staff did. The Chargers could have easily been 0-2 if Rex Grossman hadn't been so comically incompetent on offense last week. Think about that. The biggest collection of talent in their division on both sides of the ball, the Super Bowl pick of a lot of people, and they could very well have been 0-2 after getting this drubbing.

Yawn...we're just running out the clock now with Sammy Morris and Heath Evans, and the #3 Pats QB is kneeling for the game. We're gonna call it 38-14, Patriots now.

I'm glad we're being reminded that Belichick's cheating isn't affecting his own team's concentration. As if everyone is concerned with how cheating affects the team that does it - dan

Won't anyone think of the poor, poor Patriots and much maligned Coach Hobo?

I doubt Al Michaels has actually seen the movie.

Thanks for hanging out and sticking around, y'all, and barring any emergencies (or accidental Sunday night social life), I'll be back here next week for Cowboys-Bears. Drop by Signal to Noise some time. Promise you'll like it, or your money back....

...as they say, "Wait a minute...."

Peace.

Great camera work by NBC on that Moss Touchdown. Brady's eyes are even prettier during the middle of a play.

Since before Marty got there. You know, it's amazing that Marty Schottenheimer took several dog teams to near-Super Bowl levels, only to get fired. And then when Marty left, the teams soon went back in the toilet.

I just think it's interesting that it's happening again now.

Well AA thanks for asking...If I had my choice....

Baseball...There is nothing out there that is acceptable, so sad. So lets pretend...Costas/Brenley (why didn't Turner make a run at Costas?)

NFL...Buck/Aikman (I don't like Buck's smugness but sorry Michaels/Madden, you are great but I am 25 time for new blood)

NBA...Marv/Doug/Kerr

PGA...Hicks/Miller

Anon @ 10:59 - I'm still wondering why NBC wastes Collinsworth in the studio. Put him and Costas in the Sunday night booth and give Michaels and Madden the heave-ho when their contracts are up.

Someone, somwhere in blogland suggested doing that and then hiring Dan Patrick to work alongside Olbermann on the studio program.

Well first off, Steve Kerr isn't an announcer anymore so that's not a team. Doug Collins is horrible and Joe Buck is the anti-christ.

Aikman deserves better.

The point is that there are thousands of young PxPers out there who need shots over the Grumpy old men and smug prima donnas. That's what the site is all about.

Thanks for sharing though....everyone's opinions are welcome.

Sep 16, 2007, 11:03:00 PM  

I agree, but I'm not the anon who posted it.

Sometimes it seems that the only qualifications that you need to be a football announcer is that a)you played for the right school or team, and b)your daddy was an announcer.

Hell Anon, you don't even have to play for the right team! I was watching FOX's pregame coverage and they did a site to site thing where the analysts said something about the game....every single one of them was an ex-player.

Tim Ryan, Brian Baldinger, Tony Boselli

Sep 16, 2007, 11:09:00 PM  

i dont remember who all was on it but the last time mnf had two games in one night before this season there was a vermeil team on one of them and they did a fantastic job. i cannot for the life of me recall who it was. but in my opinion when youve got guys who are just there to call the game and not be a fucking spectacle, it works out for the best

give me fsn pittsburgh and fox soccer channel over espn any day of the week

Tim Ryan went to USC
Tony Boselli went to USC

So did Lynn Swann, Anthony Munoz, O.J. Simpson, Marcus Allen

I could go on.

side note, i turned it off but have they been showing the stephen jackson commercial with the music from last of the mohicans? thats one of the best football commercials ive seen in a while, and theyve been showing them a lot on cbs

Brad Nessler. He's a good one, but gets dragged down by Paul Maguire's schtick in college football.

Sep 16, 2007, 11:12:00 PM  

Baldy played for the Cowboys.

Hey Signal The Noise, that was me from Sports Media Watch (A Great Website) I suggested that Bob and Chris just do games in the comments. But I was just trying to go off of current teams for this thing since AA asked.

Point taken AA...there aren't a whole lot to choose from...that is why you have a lot to blog.

If I could have it my way...

NBA...Marv/Kerr...who gives that he works for the Suns?

NFL...Costas/Collinsworth

MLB...Michaels/Brenley (I was too young to know what kind of baseball announcer Michaels was but I am sure pretty good.)

PGA...Hicks/Miller/Faldo

Tennis...Robinson/Agassi/Mac

reminds me of the world cup when serie a was going through the match fixing scandals and the abc commentators kept making the italy players out to be heroes for putting up with the adversity of it all

if the backswing of this scandal is that the media starts acting like brady and co. are having to persevere, im done with football for the season

Mike Georger said...

This is going to happen as soon as Dan Patrick's 'no compete' clause is up.....Dan is going to join NBC for Olympics and join Olbermann for highlights for NBC Football night In America....

Anon 11:13....Agassi seems to be taking Tennis by storm.

Here's the list of people that need a chance but are held back because of the institutions that networks think we love....

Gus Johnson, Ron Pitts, Brad Nessler, Sean McDonough, Chris Fowler (pull him off of Gameday), Rob Stone, Ian Eagle, and Matt Vasgersian.

Sep 16, 2007, 11:22:00 PM  

One of my favorite ones came from SI.com earlier this year. Reggie Bush's scandal was gaining momentum. Dwayne Jarrett was in trouble because Matt Leinart's dad paid for their apartment.

Soon afterwards, SI.com came up with a "photo essay" about John David Booty's "humble" apartment.

Brett- Well the verdict is still out on that, but I don't think he takes himself as nearly as seriously as Buck does. I could see him reaching that level, but as of now I enjoy him.

Sep 16, 2007, 11:36:00 PM  

AA - DO NOT PULL FOWLER OFF GAMEDAY. He is the anchor that makes that show watchable, a calm bellwether in a sea of merkin loving Corso and OSU-jock sniffing Herbie and thousands of drunken students with hilarious signs.

Gus Johnson should be calling the game of the week for CBS. Nantz can go shove off back to golf.

robert cleave - thank you.

Sep 16, 2007, 11:38:00 PM  

That's a double edged sword there. But Fowler is just too good to be used one day a week for a 5 month sport.

Sep 16, 2007, 11:41:00 PM  

Please put Nantz back on golf and stay there.....he just does not translate to me in any other arena (including March Madness)

Thanks for commenting everyone and sharing your opinions. I'll see you for a full day of AA tomorrow and the Monday Nighter.

Excellent job S2N, I think someone will be emailing me tomorrow telling me that I'm not as good as you (they'll probably be right).
