Great job by ESPN to pull that off.

"If I'm playing Baseball and I'm up 15 points what do I do?"- Keyshawn Johnson

Ah, those Baseball points are tough to come by....I say you putt for it.

Tony Kornheiser breaks out a Bob Dylan quote, and I think I just fell asleep. Good job Tony. Emmitt Smith needs to be fired. I don't know how much I meant it last year with Theismann, but I'm 100% ready for him to go. I would take ANYONE over him.

"So tonight his looking to get back to pay dirt, so he can right size this ship."- Emmitt Smith

Comparing Brett Favre to Michael Jordan makes me sick. Just stop please. Oh god this intro is making me sick. Screw it.....I'm just going to enjoy the game. Deanna is a great wife and this is not her doing. Ugh.

Kickoff time.....
________________________________

Denver ball at the twentyish....yep I just invented a word like Emmitt Smith. A few passes, a few runs and Selvin Young picks up the second first down of the drive. Scheffler has a nice grab on a bullet from Cutler.

The Broncos have the guy supposedly responsible for the killing of Darrent Williams and recent DUI recipient Brandon Marshall introduce the Denver Offense. Good choice.

Broncos punt and your God is out on the field. Mr. Favre hit Driver for a few on first down.....Jennings has a drop on second down, and it's third and long for the Packers. Champ Bailey picks up the screen and that's a three and out for The Favres.

Barrel Man!!!!!! Good to see you're doing okay!

"He's sort of like the Brett Favre of Barrel Men."- Tony Kornheiser


Cutler hits Graham for a first down, and the ex-Patriot has some nice grabs early. That's followed by a Selvin Young screen for a first down, and the Broncs are driving. Huge play to Stokley and the Broncos will have it inside the ten after a late hit and 22 yard pass.

TOUCHDOWN BRONCOS! After a pass interfence call, Jay Cutler hits Sheffler for a score and the Broncos strike first.

"I probably shouldn't say this, but that's more scoring than the Rockies got in four games."- Tony Kornheiser


Dick.

"You know what I would love to see? John Madden in the booth tonight. Then, everytime Korny would start to jerk off about the Pats and Colts, John Madden would start screaming about Brett Favre. It would make for some good TV."- Keyser Soze

I think the world would implode.

WOW! Favre hits James Jones who burns Champ Bailey and after a run hits pay dirt! 79 Yards.

7-7 Tie.


"John Lynch was down in the box."- Ron Jaworski


Ewww.

"It's all about the probing Jaws."- Tony Kornheiser

Double Eww.

That's it I'm naming my kid Atari. The Pack are racking up the penalties and are giving the Broncos a ton of opportunities.

"You've always liked Cutler....it's like you're developing a man crush on him."- Tony Kornheiser to Jaws

Kinda like yours on Brady??? Great screen to Young and the Broncos have it inside the ten again. 13 first downs for the Broncos in the first quarter! I and every other Redskins fan is jealous.

"It's a lot of fun to watch offensive-coordinator/head coach Mike Shanahan coordinate his offense." - Jaws
(Via S2N)

Cutler fumbles at the one, and the Packers recover!!!!! Ouch that hurts big time.

Favre hits the TE Lee for a first down and the Pack have taken over momentum very quickly. Defensive holding added onto a five yard run, and that's another first down.

"Starting at right tackle, the President of Justin Timberlake's Fan Club...Chad Clifton."- Packer Guard, Mark Tauscher introducing the lineups in the 2nd qurter.

Tafoya reports that John Lynch is a little banged up and that's yet another bad sign for the Broncs. Favre picks up yet another first on third down, and the Packers are nearing midfield.

Lee from Favre again for the 3rd time. Another first. Grant picks up another first on a 22 yard run, and the Packers are inside the 20. A 12-men on the field penalty to follow, and the Broncos are just back peddling now.

Grant picks up another first down to the five after getting nailed. I personally would have fumbled it, but Grant is a pro and hangs on. Another Grant run to the 3....Second and Goal. Pass to Driver.....he's knocked out by Bailey. No force out call and it's 3rd and Goal....

AND THE BRONCOS HAVE YET ANOTHER PERSONNEL ISSUE!!!!!! Timeout Denver.

3rd and Goal from the 5.....

They run the ball?!?! Stopped at the one by DJ Williams.....great tackle. 4th and Goal.....FG attempt by Mason Crosby.....

10-7 Pack......Deanna's in the booth when we come back from commercial!

"This being Breast Cancer Awareness Month."- Mike Tirico

Dammit Mike! Listen to Nessler, it's Breast Awareness month!!!

I'm actually kind of into this interview because it gives you a look into what the wives are feeling. I couldn't imagine not watching the ball in the air, but they are all probably like Deanna and don't watch the ball and just their Man.

Tony just plans on asking all the questions this interview. Deanna is actually a pro and I'm very impressed by her ability to stop talking before the play goes off.

The Packers continue to run it up the gut at the Broncos and Favre is driving up and down the field. What else would you expect?

"If you can pick Donald Driver up, I think you can pick me up."- Deanna Favre

Oooooh I hate to call Shenanigans on you after a pretty okay interview Deanna, but that player he picked up was Greg Jennings.

"Keep Deanna and I'll just leave. She's better than I am, prettier than I am, more animated than I am....."- Tony Kornheiser
"And she smells better than you. I'll tell you that.....hit the showers."- Jaws
"Thanks."- Deanna Favre


"Oooooh I hate to call Shenanigans on you after a pretty okay interview Deanna, but that player he picked up after the record breaking TD was Greg Jennings." He started that routine with Driver, idiot.- Anon

Umm ass....they were talking about the record breaking touchdown. Who caught that again? I forget already. Thanks for playing.....idiot.

After yet another Packers FG...Denver has another 3 and out. If the Packers could get some TDs this game would be over.

That's the half.....hopefully Vince Vaughn will be nearly as exciting as Deanna Favre in the booth. It's 13-7 Pack after one....see you in a new thread after PTI at the Half.

Fuck Brett Favre right in the ear. I'm so tired of the damn montages, and you know he and his family could say "no" to some of it if they really wanted to.

Couldn't have said it better myself, AA.

I was two blocks from where the shooting happened that night and saw the rush of police and ambulances going by while walking back to my friend's apartment to Capitol Hill.

Only the next morning did I realize the unspeakable horror that transpired.

Jason Whitlock is so right on when he condemns the hip-hop mentality of the NFL and other leagues.

Fuck Brandon Marshall.

Mookie said...
Oct 29, 2007, 9:26:00 PM  

I just don't understand why Kornheiser feels like he needs to act differently on MNF from the way he acts on the first 30 minutes of PTI. He's a funny, boisterous old man and he makes me laugh. Then when Bristol "throws it back", he completely changes the tone of his voice and his form of analysis, and it sucks. The same thing happens on Monday Night. It makes me think that the cranky old man act isn't real, which seems absurd.

If only we could get a hot new CBS sitcom about his life to fill us in.

Yeah, Tony, so are the rest of us. Try and keep up.

Favre picking up Driver in 2006.

Anonymous said...
Oct 29, 2007, 9:59:00 PM  

Deanna mentioned that Favre teases her about her weight, and then she made that comment. But don't worry about getting it right...

Anonymous said...

That's great dick, but that's not what they were talking about....hence me saying "Oooooh I hate to call Shenanigans on you after a pretty okay interview Deanna, but that player he picked up was Greg Jennings."

Again...I appreciate the research, but if you don't have anything substantial to contribute go away.

Oct 29, 2007, 10:03:00 PM  

IT WAS A FACEMASK!

DUMMY said...
Oct 29, 2007, 10:03:00 PM  

After a Tivo review, she clearly makes the comment as her rebuttal to Favre joking about her weight. I'll go away and stop bringing intelligence to this conversation.

Anonymous said...
Oct 29, 2007, 10:11:00 PM  

I'm sure you won't, but when you TIVO back a little further....let me know when you hear them talking about Greg Jennings.

Farve picks up Jennings and they go to an immediate shot of Deanna saying I love you. Tony then brings up the picking up of teammates and him being "imp like". She brings up Donald Driver. Intelligence is not needed to figure out the train of thought my friend.
