The Bottom Ten/NFL Week 15

By Gaylon Kent
The Writer's Shack

December 10, 2015

And down the stretch they come!
 
With Tennessee up and winning, the race for The Dan Henning Trophy - symbolic of NFL Bottom Ten supremacy - has been blown wide open, with Cleveland ascending the throne, their current seven (7)-game skid serving notice to Bottom Ten fans everywhere of their intention to claim their first ever title.
 
Veteran Bottom Ten watchers know, however, you count out the St Louis Rams, defending champion Tennesse and even the scrappy San Diego Chargers, at your peril.
 
This week's mess, as the nags reach the quarter pole:
 
1.
Cleveland Browns (2-10; lost to Cincinnati 37-3) - Browns can't even bothered to show cursory, early interest anymore, taking command with early 20-0 deficit…Browns humming on all cylinders now, with league best seven (7)-game skid, with four of those by at least 18 points…To avoid further public humiliation, heirs of Paul Brown, who the team is named for, thinking of changing name to Cleveland Lebowskis….Next Loss: San Francisco
 
2.
St Louis Rams (4-8; lost to Arizona 27-3) - It's tough to make B-10 medal stand with four (4) wins, but Rams efforting with current, hot five-(5) game skid with three of those losses by 24 points…Team so bad Los Angeles officials trying to pawn off Rams relocation efforts off on Topeka or Belgrade or Damscus…Next Loss: Detroit 
 
3.
Jacksonville Jaguars (4-8; lost to Tennessee 42-39) - Total team effort in this one, as Jaguars come up big in must-lose game against tough divisional foe, as special teams blows two-point conversion, defense allows 42 points and offense allows fumble to be returned for touchdown...Consecutive Quality Losses vs Chargers, defending B-10 champs set solid tone for B-10 stretch drive...Next Loss: Indianapolis
 
4.
NFC East - Continuing Worst Division in NFL History quest, NFC East now routine pick for weekly Pete Rozelle Award, issued to NFL's worst division...Division so bad Dallas is both in sole possession of second place and mired in last with 4-8 mark, one game behind Holy Trinity of New York, Washington and Philadelphia that leads division with 5-7 records.
 
5.
Tennessee Titans (3-9; defeated Jacksonville 42-39) -  Defending B-10 champions chance to repeat takes huge hit in crushing come-from-behind win…Schedule maker helps, with three (3) of last four (4) on road, but Titans have to lose out to have realistic chance of repeating…Next Loss: at New York Jets
 
6.
NFC East - (19-29) -  Continuing Worst Division in NFL History quest, NFC East now routine pick for weekly Pete Rozelle Award, issued to NFL's worst division. Division so bad Dallas, at 4-8, is both in sole possession of second place and mired in last place, one game behind Holy Trinity of New York, Washington and Philadelphia that leads division with 5-7 records.
 
7.
NFL - 19 official league teams - almost 60 percent - have either .500 marks or losing records and no less than 50 percent of league has lost at least one straight game…B-10 pollsters "pretty sure" this says something, though they are not entirely sure what….Two divisions currently paced by teams that do not have winning records.
 
8.
 San Diego Chargers (3-9; lost to Denver 17-3) - Trailing only 17-3 at half, Chargers show strong finishing kick, fumbling on first two (2) second half drives…Chargers primed for B-10 stretch drive, having lost seven (7) of last (8)…With three wins coming against teams with a combined ten (10) wins, Chargers strength of schedule points could propel them straight to B-10 medal stand…Next Loss: at Kansas City
 
9.
Jacksonville vs Tennessee - AFC South showdown does not disappoint earning B-10 Game of the Year nomination…Defenses take center stage, producing 850 yards in total offense, with each team giving up over six (6)-yards a snap…Perennial B-10 contenders show mastery of fundamentals, combining for ten (10) penalties…Perennial B-10 contenders, divisional rivals, have jointly filed paperwork with B-1o staffers for Rivalry of the Year designation.   
 
10.
AFC South - Earns Marv Levy Broach as AFC's worst division this week…Forty percent of Week 13 survey made of up division, two of its teams, or the Jacksonville/Tennessee game.

Sunday October 18
The Wife and I went for a walk today and ended up inside a house for rent a block down for us...The house is, at least, 8o years old while 80 years ago occupants would've marveled at the indoor plumbing, it would not be a very functional house right now…The stairs are very narrow and are mostly between two walls and don't have the handrails that become more and more important as you get older…Plus, the only bathroom is on the ground floor, also important as you get older, especially if your sleeping on the top floor and have to negotiate fun house stairs to get there.
The young couple that bought it was out staining the deck and said they've had some calls on it, but nothing has worked out so far…I forgot to ask how much they're asking for it.

Also on the walk we ran into a mom, Becky, out for a walk with her kids…One was a girl scout with an order form The Wife - an old girl scout herself - spotted from more than a block away…We thought it was for cookies, but no, it was for nuts and other assorted stuff like that…The Wife ordered some stuff that was chocolate covered and shaped like daisies, while I ordered some whole cashews, which I dearly love.

When we knocked off work Friday night we didn't know what we would be in store for Monday because our truck was being towed back to the branch…Well, Keith called me today and said we are driving to Town A Monday morning to pick one up that someone from Route 21 is driving up.

This means we will have to be on the road by 6am and ol' Sparrow will miss his now-treasured workout, but I will take the opportunity eat really well...I am almost down a notch on my belt and I am highly motivated to make it so I can get down a couple of more notches.
