Week [Insert Week Here] Summary

So the game started off with Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat introducing the story. The first musical number kicks in, basically as an overture. After that, Michael Caine comes around a corner ominously with fog in the background. He disregards the poor and homeless along the way and enters his office where his assistant is played by Kermit. Wait… this doesn’t sound right.
Oh, that’s right. I spent Saturday afternoon switching between the Bucs game and A Muppet Christmas Carol. God, the Muppets were so much more entertaining than the Bucs. Aside from one nice, 80-yard drive that gave me hope for about nine seconds, it was the same, predictable, turnover-ridden shitfest that we’ve grown accustomed to over the last nine games. And since I’ve written that summary several times now, let’s just summarize the summary.
Josh Freeman looked better than he has during this losing streak, Kregg Lumpkin almost looked like a real NFL running back, Donald Penn gave up a couple sacks, Jeremy Trueblood gave up a couple penalties, everybody on the defensive line except Adrian Clayborn and possibly Michael Bennett didn’t bother showing up, Dekoda Watson showed he should probably be starting because none of the starting linebackers did a hell of a lot, and the entire secondary was miserable, including Tanard Jackson who looked lost.
There you go. Same as it ever was. I included one more clicky since I didn’t get to finish out All-Clicky Week on Christmas day or yesterday.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Scrooge learns the meaning of Christmas, becomes more generous, and saves Tiny Tim.
