The general consensus is that our rankings making fun of ESPN’s NFL Power Rankings last week were good. By good, I mean that no one told us that it sucked or reminded us not to quit our day jobs. That gave us enough confidence to bring this post back for another week, and I guess we’ll see how long you guys will put up with our ramblings before you get sick of them. As a point of reference, here is a link to ESPN’s actual rankings…
…so that you know that we aren’t making all of this up just to make you laugh (or at least to give us an awkward smile). They really are sad and confusing. Enjoy.
Stuart Scott would marvel over how calm and collected Trevor Siemian has been. You can call him T-Money if you’d like, or say that he’s benefited from a number of dropped interceptions and lucky breaks. Just make sure that you mention the following: he’s 3-0 as a starter for the reigning Super Bowl champions, holds a 95.9 passer rating and when the Bengals looked him dead in the eye and dared him to beat them with his arm, Trevor looked right back and said, “Hodor.”
Actually, he said, “Okay.” Then he did just that. And to think, there were all these haters out there who didn’t think Siemian could step up and win a game when he had to, including this idiot: “Trevor Siemian is the best bad option at quarterback. The least defective of a group of misfit toys.”
Oh yeah. That was me. Nothing like a nice helping of crow for breakfast on a Monday morning.
One of the more underrated comical aspects of ESPN is their consistently terrible NFL Power Rankings. Not only is it another opportunity for the Worldwide Leader in Sports to slobber all over the teams it loves and shaft the ones that it hates, but the rankings themselves often make no sense whatsoever. It’s hard to take them seriously when a sixth grader could’ve made his own list of the NFL’s top teams and probably would have come up with similar results.
Nonetheless, doing power rankings is a prolonged and painstakingly difficult task, so Kevin and I thought it would be more fun to just rip on ESPN’s weekly version. Enjoy.
Come on in guys for my Survivor Millennials vs Gen X (I’m already sick of typing that dumb name) Episode 1 review where I use classic Survivor quotes to assess the latest episode.
Before we jump into my assessment of the latest premier episode of Survivor, I thought I could give a quick preview into what to expect out of Pegboards as we wrap up 2016.
The start of the 33rd season of Survivor kicks off the start of the fall TV schedule. Here at Pegboards we will continue* to recap The Walking Dead on a weekly basis with our Dead Rankings where Jesse and I compete to guess who is next to die on the show. Sound morbid and hilarious? It is indeed.
*I haven’t confirmed this with Jesse yet but let’s just say I will guilt him into it.
Aside from The Walking Dead expect to see weekly Survivor recaps, WWE coverage, weekly NFL rankings, a Stranger Things season 1 recap, some movie reviews and much more. If you have any suggestions for show recaps please leave a comment below!
Uh oh, I hate to do this but it looks like a cyclone is incoming. For the first time in three seasons, I’m going to have to evacuate the column. Just click below and I’ll be back before you know it. Spoilers below.
