Quick Snaps: NFL Divisional Playoff Funny

    My Falcons are done!  Ouchie.  The mysterious bird deaths continue:  Falcons, Ravens, Seahawks...

    An Atlanta friend said it happens three times every year: Falcons, Hawks, and Thrashers.

    Atlanta hasn’t been this embarrassed at home since Sherman.

    It's sad when Atlanta’s real housewives are fighting harder than the Falcons D.

    The last time dirty birds were involved in this much of a disaster, BP paid to clean it up. 

    Matt Ryan had a tough game.  Now we know why they call him Matty Ice.  Against a great defense, he freezes like a deer in the headlights.

    Aaron Rogers had the best playoff game of any Packer in history.  Apparently "Mister Roger’s Neighborhood" is the Falcons’ end zone.

    The Packers scored four touchdowns in the second quarter. They had a better second quarter than Goldman Sachs.

    Steelers/Ravens game was rough.  More big hits than on Willie Nelson's tour bus... 

    Ravens wideouts just couldn’t seem to hang on to the ball.  They dropped more balls than puberty. 

    One analyst described this game as "caveman football".  Which is football as it was when Joe Paterno played. 

    Heinz Field is on its third grass surface this season.  Do they make ketchup or Rogaine?

    The Bears won handily.  The score was like an object in a side mirror: it appeared closer than it really was.

    The Seahawks collapsed so fast Jesse Ventura thinks it was an inside job.

    The secondary had more mental breakdowns than Gary Busey. 

    Love to see Hasselbeck sacked.  But I was hoping it’d be Elizabeth.

    The Seahawks found themselves in a deep hole early.  Like dating Lisa Lampanelli. 

Patriots Taste De-Feet

    The line in the Jets/Patriots game was 9.  Not the spread; the over/under on Wes Welker foot references.

    Wes Welker was benched for the first series for doing jokes?  That’s why I never played football: too many good jokes.  OK, that, and no athletic ability.

    LaDanian Tomlinson said that wives are off-limits.  Welker said he won’t touch Ryan’s wife with a 10 foot pole.

    The Jets looked good!  Mark Sanchez had more time in the pocket than my high school condom.

    The Jets really won by running.  Which is the same way I handled fights in high school.  A condom protects you, but not from beat downs.

    Darrell Revis is like Randy Moss.  Quarterbacks don’t throw the ball toward either them at all.

    Rex Ryan said it was the biggest Jets win since Super Bowl III.  Which is the last time anybody saw Joe Namath sober.
