Analysis

Spoiler Alert, Week 5: Seahawks top Bengals; Cards lose again

I'm sorry, Houston Texans. It's not you, it's me.

Same goes for you, Lions and Dolphins. I feel like Grade-A heel jumping ship at your respective low points, but at some point, I have my own dignity to consider. I just can't continue to be haunted by the voice of a bemused Jim Mora any longer. "Playoffs?" What was I thinking?

Miami taking down the Pats in the AFC East?! The Texans over Indy in the South?!! The Lions winning a division that includes Aaron Rodgers?!!! I'd laugh, but I'm too ashamed. The August heat must've made me light-headed. I realize now it was unfair for me to expect you to be something you're not.

Don't worry: You'll land on your feet.

Maybe.

OK, no more lies: You're finished. See you in 2016. Well, some of you. To the rest, I wish you the best of luck in your future professional endeavors. (The line starts behind Joe Philbin.)

Please do me a favor and pass this news along to J.J., who I assume is too busy shooting another commercial or eight to hear it directly from me. And please tell the Lions QB that playing well for three minutes isn't enough in a 60-minute game. And please advise Suh to kick himself in his own butt. And please give my best to Jadeveon if he ever shows up.

Sincerely,
Football Baby's Less Successful Dad

P.S. Football Baby is now 9-2 on the season, 40-14 lifetime. His powers are sadly not hereditary.
