It’s the holiday season, and you know what that means. We celebrate the 12 weeks of football with 12 gifts from yours truly, giving props to all that is good in football so far this season. So grab your egg nog and take that extra time you’re not using setting your fantasy lineup because you didn’t make the playoffs (not bitter) and read on!
12 Drummers Drumming
Ay yi yi, looks like the 12s are back beating the bandwagon drum in Seattle. Now, don’t get me wrong, I know you faithful have backed the Hawks the entire painful first half of the season. But now that they’re looking good in the stretch, and a wild card berth is looking likely, the Pacific Northwest is jumping back on, Sherman is running his mouth and Russell Wilson is probably guzzling more of that miracle water.
11 Kicks Returning
Or #11 returning kicks. DeSean Jackson tried too hard to make something happen late in the game against the Cowboys Sunday and fumbled the kick return, opening the door for a last minute scoring frenzy by both teams that left the Cowboys on top. When you wear your hear like this, you need to be perfect on the field, or you will be mocked.
