Who approved the Jaguars' Honey Mustard color rush unis?

Showing up looking like that can give you Notre Dame Syndrome. Mess with the uniforms/get smoked.

My wife walked in the room last night and thought it was Georgia Tech and UNC.

I said, "No, the ACC plays mostly on Saturdays. Though sometimes, it's hard to tell."

Would anyone really miss Thursday Night Football? Even the Jaguars didn't watch last night's game.

Does *anyone* on that Jacksonville D know how to tackle?

As a Jaguars fan, I feel like tackling is a lesser issue behind coverage and edge containment.

I would miss Thursday football. I am worthless and weak.

The NFL Pick 'Em rules for a lock state, "This doubles the points you win for that game, but if that team loses, you lose 10 points (even if you get the spread)."

The teams that had a lock on either team in the Seattle/Arizona tie lost 10 points.

Should it be 0 points instead?

I trimmed my football watching to Sundays-only and I could not be happier about it.

Mark it zero! (rcade, this is a humorous reference for those of us who have seen The Big Lebowski)

"I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

The letter of the law implies that it should be zero, but I'd lean toward -10 points. The whole point of the lock, after all, is that you're convinced the team you select will win.

And we all are aware of the -10 if we don't meet the criteria for the lock.

Something tells me that I've already done my locks and bagels routine at SpoFi. I'll move on to the Mirage or the MGM Grand and try my act there.
