Dirty Birds Week


Recommended Posts

On a totally different note about birds, no team has ever beaten all 5 bird teams (Eagles, Ravens, Cardinals, Seahawks, and Falcons) in a single season. New Orleans can do that this year. I guess that makes tonight's game against Atlanta a reason to watch???

New Orleans is playing Arizona tonight. Cincinnati plays Atlanta on Sunday.

My bad. As hubby would say, “Both begin with ‘A’, both are 🦢, both are red, white, and black, both are NFC.” 😂😂

There are very few teams that even get the chance.  4 of the 5 bird teams are in the NFC and are distributed over three divisions, so no AFC team would ever be scheduled to play them all.  With the recent 17th game addition, the only possible way for an AFC team to do this would be to get the Cards and Seahawks via rotation, the Eagles OR Falcons via 17th game, and the last one in the Super Bowl.  And then they'd have to play the Ravens during the season or playoffs too.  But before 17, no AFC team would even have a shot at this.

 

IIRC the last team with all 5 on their schedule was the 2020 Cowboys.... and they failed.

 

But if we consider only the regular season - then no AFC team can or will ever get a shot.

Devon and his daughter Leah Still are this week's Rulers of the Jungle

Let's not also forget that when it became apparent that Devon wasn't going to make the team, the front office signed him to the Practice Squad so his health insurance benefits would continue, allowing Leah to keep receiving cancer treatments.

 

To my knowledge, that was a move without precedent in major league sports.  Kudos to all involved.

The Bengals have made similar moves in the past.  Petitioned (?) the league to have a two-point conversion attempt count as a play so that Kitna would earn a bonus.  Paid Weathersby (sp?) his full salary after he was in an auto accident that ended his NFL career.

Items 9-12 somewhat describe what the NFL Seahawks (Skuas) are like :gobengals:

That is quite interesting. Whether Seattle uses the Osprey, Skuas, Auger Hawks, etc. for representative purposes: 

 

"Number one: There’s no such thing as a “seahawk”'

I think Mike Brown was always a good human being, just a shitty GM. 

 

Think if anything at times he's trying too hard to show how good he is, like ppl handing out money to the homeless on youtube.  All that "Redeemer" stuff & carrying dead weight coaches or FO people well past their expiration date.  

 

There's being a good person and then there's a messiah complex.
