GOOD VS. EVIL: RESURRECTION, DAY III: All season I’ve been trying to catalog the best NFL related parody songs. When the original artist re-records a song with repurposed and unintentionally hilarious lyrics, does that qualify as parody? You be the judge:
This is some kind of prophecy, right? If all the screaming heathens in Gillette Stadium have their replica sleeveless hoodies spontaneously combust on Saturday, I’ll be the first to say ‘I told you so.’
Patriots fans should be aware that a bye week is no longer the lock it once was. Since 2005, bye week teams have recorded an uninspiring .500 winning percentage. On the bright side, since the current playoff format was instituted in 1990, only 10 teams have made it to the Super Bowl without one.
The 49ers have converted 10 of their 14 bye weeks into NFC Championship appearances. The team also has some interesting motivational techniques, thanks to Youtube-scouring head coach Jim Harbaugh. Although, shouldn’t referencing the honey badger be nixed after what happened in Monday’s BCS Championship?
Did you feel there was a real lack of post-game analysis by the media following the Texans/Bengals wildcard match-up? If that’s the case, you might want to check out this rundown of why the Bengals lost. Hint: their offense relies solely on the play of one wide receiver.
In news from the non-playoff world, Hue Jackson was fired yesterday after one 8-8 season as coach of the Raiders. It looks like the Raiders organization wants to move away from the Al Davis era once and for all. Does this make for a less entertaining NFL?
Finally, if you’ve ever wondered how the Philadelphia Eagles would react to a hypothetical gay teammate, now is your chance to find out by reading some highly generalized and nuance-lacking reporting. Enjoy!
