Just to be clear, this is “Lion Voltron,” and not “Vehicle Voltron,” which I don’t really consider a real Voltron anyway. Cars for feet? Really? And don’t even get me started on Gladiator Voltron. Any one of the GoBots could whip his ass. Anyway, let’s meet our contestants, and then afterward, tell us who we missed (and who you would swap out) in the comments.
Kyle Orton, Denver Broncos. Statistically, Orton had been pretty sharp on the year in terms of production, but really wet the bed in his last two starts. You know you suck when they’re talking about benching you and starting Tim Tebow.
Matt Flynn, Green Bay Packers. This really isn’t his fault; he was probably catching up on old strips of “Marmaduke” when Aaron Rodgers got his second concussion of the season Sunday. He threw a pick and he lost to the Lions. That could have happened to anybody!
Brodie Croyle, Kansas City Chiefs. We’re forming arms and torso with another guy that started his day as a second-stringer (it’s a tough group). The 3rd-rounder from 2006 was 7-of-17 in his first start of the year after Matt Cassel underwent an appendectomy.
Chad Henne, Miami Dolphins. It’s not every day in the NFL (or any other football league anywhere before 1978) that a guy can go 5-18 for 55 yards and still beat the Jets…which brings us to…
Mark Sanchez, New York Jets. Six sacks and three picks do not a poised quarterback make. Plus his team dropped to two games behind the Patriots in the standings, threatening their chances of making the playoffs. Sanchez may be the most overrated quarterback in the NFL, which makes his forming the head particularly fitting.
Here’s a clip of the five lions forming Voltron. Because the only thing scarier than five lions is a giant robot whose shoes don’t match.Subscribe to UPROXX
And here’s that Vehicle Voltron, who is also known as “Bastard Voltron.”
