So, on my early morning drive to work this morning, I was listening to Sirius NFL radio, and this little bit happened upon my ears.....
Some guy calls in, asking how Houston will fare in the playoffs, and if they will make an appearance in Indy in February. I see this as a legit question, as Houston has a stellar run game, one of the best O-line's in the league, and a stifling defense under Wade Philips- all markings of a championship caliber team, right?
The answer given is what piqued my interest, and gave me a chuckle at the same time. Ross Tucker (the host), goes on to say that Houston is a team with some great stars in big-time positions, has a great running game, defense, etc etc, even ventures to state they may win a playoff game.... but states all the odds are stacked against them to make it to the Super Bowl. And to back up this claim, he gives the following reasons:
"Brady, Roethlisberger, the Ravens."
Now, some may not understand this, and say, "well yeah duh." this, however, is where i got my laugh, and for multiple reasons:
1. Somebody (outside Steeler Nation) was able to use Ben's name in the same sentence with Brady, and did not burst into flames! (see, it is possible).
2. He didn't use the QB's name, he had to state "the Ravens". Why would he use the name of the QB on those first 2 teams, and then just say "the Ravens"? Don't the Ravens have a QB also? Why wasn't his name used along side Ben and Brady? or maybe his name slipped the mind of the radio show host?
Nah, I came to the conclusion that Flacco sucks. Cue the unibrow pictures.
