Happy Sunday. Hope everybody enjoyed the extra hour of sleep. Thanks farmers.
To mark the latest meeting of Ryan brothers teams, NFL Network’s pregame show is sharing an assortment of old family photos of Rex and Rob, like the marvelous one you see above. It’s like how NFL studio shows do when the Mannings play, only tolerable. More than anything, the above photo makes me wistful for an ’80s WWE tag team that never was – The Pussytubers. Rex and Rob have matching mustaches and mullets, along with loose fitting all-black attire. Their manager and father Buddy constantly interferes in matches by hitting opponents over the head with a tennis racket or a briefcase.
As for today’s game, there’s been talk that Antonio Cromartie could be covering Jimmy Graham, which is just crazy enough to be hilarious. The burning question: can Cromartie defend Graham’s crossover? Haha, it’s funny because Jimmy Graham was a basketballer once. Has no one mentioned that before?
Meanwhile, the Vikings are focused on beating the Giants in Dallas. We’ll let you know how it works out.
