A.V.B. O.U.T.

There are a few teams around the league that should try out the Dolphins' long snapper at Quarterback, because dude throws a beautiful spiral backwards through his own legs.

I'm reminded of the best reaction .gif in football history:

Yerfatma, I prefer to think of it as "Liverpool runs over team so hard the coach is spat out the other end." But I like your acronym-ish post too ;)

Stats for Rudolph R. N. Reindeer. It's the similarity scores that get me.

2008 stats. Bravo.

Cam Newton, dicking around on the sideline: "Why ain't I on the hands team? I got the best hands on this team. I catch the ball every single play. From the snap."

I hate the Lions. I hate being a Lions fan. I hate that the Lions were robbed of a touchdown on a missed pass interference call. I hate that Justin Tucker nailed a 61 yard field goal to put a nail in the coffin on their season (most likely). I hate that the Lions threw picks on two third and short situations. I hate that when the Lions finally control their own destiny they once again prove to be the same old Lions.

I was one and a half years old the last time the Lions won a playoff game. I will probably have one of my own by the time they win another.

Also, for anyone keeping track the Lions have 19 turnovers in their past five games.

I hate the fact that Wayne Fontes is the greatest Lions coach in my lifetime...

I'll always love the Lions for giving a job to a Quarterback called Chuck Long.

Wanna light a candle with this Bengals fan and sing kumbaya?

This Bills fan wants to point out that he's haunted by memories of when his team used to be good enough to make it to the Super Bowl on a regular basis...but never win it.

That's like showing someone heaven, and then slamming the door on them.

Four.
Times.
In a row.

And since we currently hold the longest active streak for missing the NFL playoffs (14 years and counting), I think our pain is greater than anyone else's.

I hate the fact that I got so fed up with the sight and thought of Matt Millen ruining the team that I bookmarked the Freep online edition so I could see how outraged the locals were going to have to get before ownership finally pulled the plug.

Some of the Lions' miscues last night were painful to behold. Johnson's drops looked like they were done as a favor to well-placed individuals who had money on the game.

(I understand the pain of Bills fans, but I still firmly believe that the Bills going to four straight title games was a great achievement).

Oh, it definitely is an amazing achievement and should be celebrated for its greatness. I don't think we'll ever see any team pull off that feat in our lifetimes.

For the fans, it's still heartbreak and pain.

I'm a Cowboys fan... enough said!

Only having won five Super Bowls must be so hard.

I think our pain is greater than anyone else's.

I'm inclined to agree. But Lions fans don't know pain of losing a Super Bowl feels like. Then again, I imagine it is something similar to watching Sidney Crosby hoist the Stanley Cup at Joe Louis Arena.

I try not to live in the past.

The only thing missing from watching the Cowboys weak attempt at holding a lead is the Benny Hill music.
