    Another great weekend of NFL football. Let's get to it!

    The Packers were wearing throwbacks from the depression era. Based on the color scheme, I understand why everyone was depressed.

    The uniforms are from 1929. At the time, the team was sponsored by the Acme Packing Company, which eventually went out of business after the death of their most loyal customer, Wile E. Coyote.

    1929. I think this was Brett Favre’s first year in the NFL.

    By the way, Brett Favre’s stat line from Sunday: one pass, one interception, out for the game. The sad part is that IMPROVED his QB rating.

    EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - DECEMBER 05:  Dave Tollefson #71 of the New York Giants sacks Donovan McNabb #5 of the Washington Redskins who fumbles and the ball is recovered by Corey Webster #23 during their game on December 5, 2010 at The New Meadowlands Stadiu

    They're having a "depression era" in Washington right now too.

    The Redskins lost 31-7, and it wasn’t that close. The Giants beat the Redskins so badly that after the game, the Giants gave them a casino.

    Redskins suck this year. It’d be sad to see actual Native Americans wearing bags on their heads. 

    They’re not crying about the litter. It’s the play on the field.

    BALTIMORE, MD - DECEMBER 05:  Quarterback Ben Rothlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers takes a knee prior to the start of the game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on December 5, 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland. Pittsburgh won 13-10. (Photo

    Big Ben has a broken metatarsal. I think we all knew that. If "metatarsal" means “ethical code.”

    They said he aggravated an injury in his foot. Another aggravated assault? At least this time it was just on his foot.

    In addition to the foot issues, he broke his nose in this game. And he also has a pepper spray allergy, which flares up some weekends.

    DETROIT - DECEMBER 05: Drew Stanton #5 of the Detroit Lions is sacked by D. J. Moore #30 of the Chicago Bears during the fourth quarter of the game at Ford Field on December 5, 2010 in Detroit, Michigan. The Bears defeated the Lions 24-20.  (Photo by Leon

    The Chiefs filed “tampering” charges against the Detroit Lions, which is the first time this year a team has been threatened by the Lions.

    Detroit put place kicker Jason Hanson on injured reserve. That could come into play if the Lions need a field goal to only lose by 30. 

    The Lions are owned by the Ford family. I actually feel sorry for them. They have to lose to the Bears AND the Japanese.

    The fans are hoping for a bailout.

    Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco posed nude last week for a PETA ad. It was easy for him because he'd just had the pants beat off of him by the Jets.

    The Falcons’ Tony Gonzalez appeared naked with his wife in the same series that reads, “We’d rather go naked than wear fur.” Yeah, but he and his wife are HOT. Not all of us are hot. Some of us need to kill some animals to cover that up! 

Yeah, I've Got a Tony, but It's Broken

    I saw this headline, “Tony Romo Continues to Feel Discomfort.” Yeah, that’s from watching his team play better without him.

    The Cowboys are turning it around. In fact, Cowboys haven’t turned around this fast since "Brokeback Mountain."

Time to Cut the Deck?

    GLENDALE, AZ - DECEMBER 05:  Wide receiver Steve Breaston #15 of the Arizona Cardinals is unable to catch a long pass against the St. Louis Rams during the NFL game at the University of Phoenix Stadium on December 5, 2010 in Glendale, Arizona. The Rams de

    The Rams like to use the “no huddle offense.”

    The Cardinals have one-upped them. They leave out the word “huddle” altogether and play in the “no offense.” 

Guys, Please Hold on to Your Balls

    There were a total of NINE turnovers in the Bills-Vikings game. They don’t have that many turnovers available at Arby’s!

    NINE turnovers? No ball control at all. Were those teams wearing boxer shorts?

Man, Percy

    The Vikings’ Percy Harvin missed the game with a migraine.  Brett gets it at home I’m sure. Now he has to hear it on the field too, “Not tonight, I have a headache...”
