Congratulations to this week’s Meast, Jason Pierre-Paul of the New York Giants. Not only did JPP record six tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, and a safety, he also single-handedly made sure that the Cowboys would lose for the second straight week. The only downside is that he didn’t give Jason Garrett the opportunity to make a fool of himself in overtime. Pierre-Paul now has 12.5 sacks on the year, leading to assumptions that he might be pretty good at this football stuff.
Your Jeff George Memorial Least of the Week is Marion Barber III. Rushing for 108 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries is nice, but when you fuck up nobody remembers anything else. And oh boy, did Marion fuck up. First he gifted the Broncos a timeout by running out of bounds late in the fourth quarter (extra Tebow time!), then he coughed up the football on what should have been the winning drive in overtime. Fucking dagger. Everyone knows what happened next. Tim Tebow made an outstanding catch on an uncharacteristically wide throw by Tim Tebow, leading to Tebow’s 51-yard game-winning Tebow.
Perhaps the real Least is God. After all, it was He who lead Marion out of bounds and pried the ball from his barbarian grip.
And now, right back to Tebow!
Kidding aside, this sign does pose an interesting question. What is up, Benji?
