Broke Back Tony Romo, Ezekiel’s Reefer Madness, NFC East

15 Comments

Thoughts and prayers for Big Al Sternberg and his family. Life is too short.

FREEHOLD, NJ – “I Can’t Quit You.” These are the words most likely being uttered from Jason Garrett’s quivering lips as he anguishes over the latest news about Tony Romo.  

"I want my money back"

“I want my money back.”

The NFC East is up for grabs this year, as the Giants, Cowboys, Iggles and Redskins gear up for another edition of Who Wants it Less.  This division has become perennially insignificant as each team finds ways to lose. Someone, however, will be crowned Best of the Worst, so let’s break it down .

Big Blue:  Anyone who has read my offerings over the last few years, realizes that I’m as popular as Donald Trump at a Black Lives Matter Rally or Hillary Rotten Clinton at a Church confession with Giants fans.  My favorite target has been Eli Gump Manning, who is equipped with a very good receiving Corp. The caveat here is that the team spent all their cash attempting to sure up what was the worst defense in modern Giants history. If what we have seen so far in pre-season is an indicator of things to come, Eli may finally get hurt. This offensive line is horrible. The Boys of Rutherford can’t punt, pass or kick behind these stiffs… Yes, their defense appears to be improved due to Free Agency but they are far from being the next ’85 Bears. If teams score seventeen points, Big Blue will probably lose.

Yep. Pretty much sums it up.

Yep. Pretty much sums it up.

Philadelphia Eagles: 1960. That was the last time the Iggles won a championship and by all indications, that streak of futility will continue. With Sam Badford the most likely choice at QB, combined with ZERO talent at wide receiver, Eagles fans may long for Riley Cooper. Similar to the Giants, Kiladelphia purportedly has improved their D. With another questionable O-line, this group will struggle vs non division opponents.

Washington Redskins: Last season, the stars aligned and the politically incorrect Skins took advantage of their floundering rivals. Kirk Cousins was chosen over Robert RG3 Griffin in an intelligent coaching move by Brother of Chucky,  Jay  Gruden. The addition of Vernon Davis will help not only Cousins, it will help their running game, as Davis is a strong blocker. Josh Norman will join DeAngelo Hall to out mouth any opposing wide receiver. There is nothing special about this team except, perhaps, that their coach knows how not to blow it?

 " will this pick go up in smoke? "

“Will this pick go up in smoke? “

Dallas Cowboys: Most prognosticators pencilled Jerry’s Kids to take the NFC Least this season, but the asterisk was always based on Romo’s health.  Tony OhNo Romo broke again after just three plays on Thursday night vs the Seahawks. Why he was bootlegging is beyond comprehension, however one can look at Dak Prescott as the one to blame. This rookie has shown real promise while playing with the first team.  A fourth round pick (135) , Prescott is now thrust onto the center star with the future in his hands. The weapons around him are formidable – as long as first rounder Ezekiel Elliott can control his temper and Reefer Madness.  Albert Morris just may be the best signing of the offseason, creating depth in the backfield. If Dez Bryant can stay on the field, Dallas may have a shot.

Who Wants It Least?  Time will tell!

By all means chime in with your best shots and come back tomorrow for my little cousin, Matt McCarthy, affectionately known as Short Matt.  And please follow us on Twitter – @MeetTheMatts and like our Facebook page, Meet The Matts. Thank you.

    You realize that your cowgirls will never win another Super Bowl . Why are you not writing on this blog every week?

    • Fireman Ed Sucks

      The Jets QB situation is better then the *Sh!t Show in Dallas.

      *Edited by Concurring MTM Censors!

      • Romo has been the payback for the years Dallas sucked the life out of Giants fans in the ’70s and early to mid ’80s, and then again with Aikman’s ‘Boys. Please play forever Tony!!!

        • GrindingAx

          I dream of a caregiver for Tony . I dream of Cathy Bates as his nurse and he plays the role of Jimmy Caan. How do you like Dak idea?

  • Let’s face it: Eli’s face can be a face for radio – or behind a face-mask worn by a two-time Super Bowl MVP! He will win a third and put Peyton in his Place.

  • Dude

    dear mara family: why is ok to beat your wife and be a player that will barely help the team but not ok to smoke weed and be a player that will help. the nfl sucks. i hope the players all boycott until roger goodell is tarred and feathered. that would be my dream nfl season.

    • GrindingAx

      Not sure where you were going with this, Dude. Weed pre gaming ? Zeke Elliott would give you his vote.

      • Donald Trump

        I will make Marijuana illegal! I will also make it legal!

      • Dude

        Not drafting tunsil was what I was referring to. But if someone smokes pre game and plays well who cares. If it makes them suck then wait til after. But compared to the crap they inject into these dudes on a regular basis it’s really small potatoes. Especially when you resign spousal abusers.

    Giants scored 5th most points last year with same OL. I know they’ve played poorly but 17 points is nothing.

    • GrindingAx

      Eli is not getting any younger or mentally quicker. If they actually can muster a running game, he may be saved from getting hammered.

  • benwhit

    Was Vernon Davis worth mentioning? He hasn’t done anything in years.

    • GrindingAx

      New team, new coach . I think he has something left to help the Deadskins.

  • bosoxbruins04

    Do NY fans hate the Cowboys more then the Patriots?

    • GrindingAx

      Yes.
