Unexpected (and expected) for Week 8: We want Tebow

(National Football League)

I have no idea what any of that means, but it’s just awesome to look at. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the weird, wild and wacky stuff from Week 8.

Block that kick!

Who the heck missed the assignment here? Oh wait, it’s Tim Tebow. Well, I guess he’s not good as a punt protector, either.

The day throwback uniforms died

Oh boy, there are so many comments that can be made from these uniforms, let’s start with my top three (in descending order).

3. Hey look, it’s former the former WWF tag team, the Killer B’s of B. Brian Blair and Jumping Jim Brunzell.

2. I went to a Steelers game and a Blind Melon video broke out.

1. These Steelers uniforms were as bad as the “Three Stooges” remake, and look, they took those uniforms from them.

Ah, not proud of any of those? Hit me up on Twitter with something better.


The was Rob Gronkowski‘s ode to that “little nutcracker dude.” It’s a good think you’re good at football, Gronk.

And hey, let’s go with the best of Gronkowski.

Heel turn

Is that facial hair for Philip Rivers? And you know, in professional wrestling, facial hair = turning into a bad guy. How long before Rivers superkicks Norv Turner and throws him through the Barber Shop window. (Figuratively, of course.)

Play of the day

Yeah, it also helped my fantasy team, too.

Matt Ryan had 60 people show up in Philadelphia to watch him play. None of them were brave enough to wear Falcons’ gear, though. Wait, is this the story where Ryan’s family pretended to be filming a movie so they could sneak them out, or do I have it confused with “Argo?”

Game of the day

(Matthew Emmons/US Presswire)

I don’t want to say I called this but …

The Cowboys rallied from 23-points down to take the lead. And then lose the lead. And then to have Tony Romo throw his fourth interception. And then get the ball back. And then this happened …

Of course, Romo will be blamed for the loss. And he made some bad plays, but did he have the butt fumble?

No, he did not.
