Today’s episode is absolutely loaded. First, budding 49ers superstar, arguably the best TE in the NFL right now and friend of the show, George Kittle, calls in hot off his 210 yard performance on Sunday. They chat about the game and why he didn’t eclipse the record after his monster first half, he breaks down a live game of PIG being played between the 9ers Specialists and Joe Staley, he takes issue with something Pat Angerer said, and they discuss wrestling some more as George presents a West Virginia vs. Iowa wrestling match. (1:32-11:47). Next, one of Pat’s former teammates and one of the most athletic lineman in the NFL, offensive tackle for the Chicago Bears, Bradley Sowell, calls in coming off scoring the only touchdown in Sunday night’s tilt against the Rams. They discuss how his career has been going up to this point, how hard he had to beg to be on the receiving end of that touchdown Sunday, his golf game and whether he’d ever consider turning pro, and the atmosphere in the Bears’ locker room right now (17:20-28:47). Later, Pro introduces a new segment titled, “A reading from the book of..” where he highlights one of the guys’ blogs from this past week. They also discuss Digs’ recent Steelers rant and dive into an incredible NFL conversation including a lock from Gorman for all the brobrobro’s. Also included is Pat’s interview with Mike Florio on Pro Football Talk discussing some things going on in the NFL (1:05:16-1:17:45), and Pat runs through some of the songs compiled from his year end Spotify playlist. Closing out the show is an interview with Purdue legend and national inspiration, Tyler Trent, to help start your weekend with some positivity (1:39:09-1:59:00). It’s a great one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
Pat and Digs are back for another addition of “Real Shame Wednesday” brought to you by Mybookie.ag
After Kyle Shanahan confirmed Nick Mullens is going to start on Monday Night I was excited for the young man to perform during another primetime game but I also know that I can’t trust Nick Mullens to be consistently good. He’s doomed to have bad games and make horrible throws. Why you ask? Well he suffers from a rare QB condition that is incurable. There are ways to manage the condition and have good games but it will eventually doom him and his career. The condition is known as “ROMOEYEITUS” (Romo-eye-itus). Named after former QB and now weird announcer Tony Romo. It’s an extremely rare condition. Nick Mullens is only the 3rd QB to ever be diagnosed with said condition. The other 2 being Tony Romo (Obviously) and Mitch Trubisky. The only way to tell if your QB has this condition is to look into the eyes. This condition is strictly about the eyes, the eyes tell all. If your QB has beady little black eyes then they have Romoeyeitus. If this is the case, Sorry for your loss. Please see example A,B and C below.
Symptoms include: Good arm talent, Above average scrambling ability, Poor decision making, shitty ball security, Lacking the clutch gene, Throws nice interceptable ball, Weak back/shoulder/collar bone, Will be just good enough to keep around for a decade.
Please watch this educational video for Examples of what this rare condition can lead to.
You can call me an idiot now but when this blog is in the American Journal of Medicine I will have the last laugh.
I’d also like it to be known that I am rooting for Mitch and Nick to overcome this condition and not succumb to it like Tony did. With advancements in todays medicine there is always a hope.
Raiders @ 49ers -2.5, O/U 45. Strap in for what could be an all time classic Thursday Night shit show. The 1-6 Oakland Raiders vs the 1-7 San Francisco 49ers. The line started at 4 this week but has slowly crept down to 2.5 with speculation that CJ Beathard may not play.
I need Nick Mullens to play. I pride myself on knowing a ton of players and I have no idea what the fuck a Nick Mullens is. Quick google search here… Turns out he actually had a pretty decent college career.
I don’t care though. This dude for sure shits himself making his NFL debut on a primetime Thursday Night game. I mean look at him, he’s got shit his pants written all over him.
Am I confident in a Raiders team that is 1-6 and is clearly tanking? NOPE. However when it comes to picking games between 2 horrible teams I’m going to go with the better QB. Derek Carr can cry all night as long as he covers the +3. Yes I took the Raiders at +3 soon as the Beathard news came out. If you can only get them at +2.5 make sure you bet them up to +3. The number is much more important than the juice.
MY PICK: Raiders +3
