FYS Week 14 Power Rankings

Proctologistics

Typically in the NFL, good teams find a way to win, and bad teams, well, they just suck. The NFC has done a pretty good job of sorting itself out. After 14 weeks, only a handful of teams have any real shot at reaching the playoffs. The AFC on the other hand, is a cluster fuck. The next three weeks should be interesting, whether you’re in the playoff hunt, looking to be a spoiler, or just jockeying for draft position.

In The News

On Monday night, while doing an interview for a local Cincinnati radio station, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis stepped in a pile of shit, and not just a little tiny dwarfish pile of shit, but a giant sized pile of shit. (I hope my use of the word “giant” doesn’t offend anyone on this site)

When Lewis was asked about the possibility of facing Cleveland Browns rookie Quaterback, Johnny Manziel, Lewis said the following:
“You gotta go defend the offense. You don’t defend the player,” Lewis said before adding, “Particularly a midget.”

His comments blew up on Twitter and other social media outlets, with people who took offense to the word “midget”, and Lewis later apologized:

“I’m aware that my comment on local radio [Monday] night was offensive to people of short stature and to their families and friends,” Lewis’ statement began. “It was thoughtless on my part to use the word I did, and not excusable, and I greatly regret it. I since have read about this issue on the Little People of America website. I understand it better, and as I have apologized to Johnny Manziel and the Cleveland Browns’ community, I offer the same to all others who I offended, and I pledge that I will learn from this.”
“I hope that my mistake and the resultant publicity may serve at least to help others not make similar insensitive comments in the future.”

I think that was pretty big of him. I had no idea there was a Little People of America website. It turns out, they’re incorporated; Little People of America Inc., an advocacy group for men and women diagnosed with dwarfism. The group publicly denounced use of the word midget in 2009.

Not to worry, It turns out, “Such terms as dwarf, little person, LP, and person of short stature are all acceptable, but most people would rather be referred to by their name than by a label.”

The website offers services like adoption. You can actually adopt one of those cute, little suckers. They also offer scholarships, but I bet they would discriminate against someone with a massive 5’ 8” frame like me. Finally, I found out they a have an annual convention. I wouldn’t mind going there for a short time, and picking up a little something on the side.

Kansas City Chief safety Eric Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. This is a treatable and potentially curable form of cancer.

On the lighter side, Saint Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher had a little fun at the Washington Redskins expense. On Sunday, Fisher marched out the six players who were all draft picks, or acquired by trade, from picks acquired in the RGIII trade.

Who’s Hot

The Arizona Cardinals, who have struggled since the loss of starting quarterback Carson Palmer, managed a big win on Sunday. The win keeps them on top of the NFC West, and in the number one playoff spot.

Who’s Not

The San Francisco 49ers appear to be falling apart at the seams.

You Said It

Cam Of Steel – LOLIONS too high
JJ – I certainly hope you prove to be right, but for now…

StillLSU4LIFE – I hate the fact that the Cards are going into choke mode. I wanted Seattle to end up as a wild card, and get no home games in the playoffs. That doesn’t look good now.
JJ -Oh, ye of little faith.

It’s Time To Rank ‘em and Spank ‘em
