The Monday Morning Quarterback

Brady’s Team!

Remember that episode of The Brady Bunch where Peter got made fun of by all of his buddies on his football team because he was in the glee club? In case you forgot, Deacon Jones showed up and told everyone that he liked to sing so they all quit making fun of Peter. A few things stick out about that episode.

First, there were somewhere around eight people on Peter’s team. Second, they were practicing in shoulder pads, helmets, sweat shirts and jeans. Jeans! What kind of a football team practices in jeans? The guy at the gym wearing jeans is off base enough but the football team practicing in jeans takes it to another level. Anyway, here’s my point.

Peter Brady’s football team could easily win the Big Ten.

Ohio State won their one and only big game of the year on Saturday against Michigan State. Usually, an Ohio State win is bad news for America, our allies and all other freedom loving people on our planet. But there just might be a ray of hope in all of this. The top ranked team in the Big Ten getting beat could mean that there will be no Big Ten team in the playoffs. And that’s good for America, our allies and freedom loving people all across our planet.

Here’s something else that fans of the Big Ten won’t like. If Ohio State ends up winning their conference, not only should they still miss the playoffs but there is a good argument for a two loss, non-conference winning SEC team making it to the final four. Think about it. Who deserves a shot at a national title more, a team that beat LSU and Ole Miss but lost to Mississippi State and Auburn or a team that couldn’t get double digits against The Fightin’ Brady’s?

Quick Hits

1. Why are the Chicago Bears allowed to have a football team and whose idea is it to keep putting them on television?

2. Georgia will beat Auburn 28 to 17.

3. Now that we’ve gotten rid of the political commercials during football games, can we also get rid of those two guys in the Sonic commercial? The folks from ISIS have to be behind these things.

4. At this very moment, somewhere in America, a person inside of a Home Depot is using the word thing-a-ma-jigger. Also, somewhere in America at this very moment, a current or former Florida State football player is wearing a suit and using the phrase, “Not guilty, your honor.”

Until next week, happy footballing.
