Meast And Least For Week 9

In case voting for Calvin Johnson to the Pro Bowl isn’t enough for you.

Today’s the big day, when your cast for vote for somebody, or nobody at all, because that’s your right, too. I will say, just for the Election Day experience, I am glad that U.S. doesn’t have a law like Australia that requires people to vote on penalty of a fine. The lines at voting stations can get bad enough as it is. Just think if the entire country was required to turn out. It’d be like an all-day trip to the DMV anytime.

Oh, and for those last few undecideds, Jay Cutler announced on the radio on Monday that he’s voting for Mitt Romney. I assume that’s based on nothing but Romney’s statement about not caring about half the country. That kind of apathy really appeals to Cutty.


The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Week 9 is Doug Martin, who ran for 251 yards and scored four touchdowns against the Raiders. Martin has nearly 400 yards rushing and six total scores in the last two weeks. Unfortunately, his meastiness makes Greg Schiano look good, but his meastiness has been so evident, we would be remiss to deny it for a second week. Frankly, when you’re that measty, you should be able to dictate your own nickname. So if he has a problem with his Muscle Hamster nickname, I say we wait to give it to the next Maurice Jones-Drew-type of back that comes down the pike.

Also receiving consideration: Charles Tillman, Andrew Luck, Brandon Marshall and Terence Newman

The Jeff George Memorial Least for Week 9 is Orlando Scandrick. Just looking at the stat sheet, it’s hard to see Scandrick’s leastiness, so I attached video above of a montage of various key missed tackles he had against the Falcons, as well as significant penalties that he drew. That he only finished with two tackles on the night makes the leastiness more evident. A lot of the attention for derpiness in Dallas is usually (and rightly) cast on stars like Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, but people have to remember that the Cowboys roster is loaded with leasty talent.

Also receiving consideration: Matt Cassel, Brandon Boykin, Patrick Peterson and Brandon Banks
