Glenn, Lou, and Christian discuss the lack of buzz for Sunday's would-be Marquee game in Pittsburgh. They have zero faith that Landry Jones can produce the way he needs to for a Steelers win.

Glenn, Lou, and Christian discuss last night's Final Presidential Debate. They think Trump did himself a disservice by saying he'll wait to decide if he'll accept the results of the Election. They also look at Trump's missed opportunities to attack Hillary, and his lack of preparation.

Just when I was afraid I’d gotten irredeemably discouraged about the state of American politics, along comes Joe Exotic to give me hope.

Here is the man this once-great country needs. The redneck, gay, married, kinky sex-enjoying, drug-experimenting, broke as [expletive] candidate who won’t cut his hair or change the way he dresses we have all been looking for. And who might have a judgement against him from a [expletive] down in Florida but that doesn’t mean he’s ever been convicted of any animal cruelty thing. That’s exactly the kind of leader America needs.

I’ve tried to stay neutral in the race to this point. But I hereby throw the much-coveted, official Thorngraphy endorsement to Joe Exotic for President.

Joe Exotic speaks for America.

Pro Football TalkGiants kicker Josh Brown has admitted to physically and emotionally abusing his now ex-wife, according to documents obtained and shared by SNY.Tv.

The confessions SNY shared Wednesday came from journals and emails turned over to police by Molly Brown after her ex-husband was arrested in May 2015 and charged with a fourth-degree domestic violence assault. …

Among the admissions SNY’s report revealed were Brown writing in 2013 that he had “physically, verbally and emotionally abused my wife,” that he had “controlled her by making her feel less human than me, and manipulated her with money” and that he had “disregarded [his] stepsons’ feelings and they have witnessed me abusing their mother.”

So here we have John Brown admitting that Josh Brown is a spouse-abusing bag of pus who subjects his wife’s sons to growing up watching their mother be tortured before their eyes. Anybody with an ounce of decency knew it was the case from the literally dozens of times the police were called to save Molly Brown from this sadistic POS. Except Giants’ owner John Mara, who not only said these cases “are very rarely black and white. You very rarely have a Ray Rice video.” And who said he was “comfortable” with re-signing Brown despite his track record of turning Mr. Hand into Mr. Fist around his wife. But now we have confirmation.

And now that we do, it’s worth pointing out that for all his history of cruelty to the woman he married, Josh Brown was suspended one game. One. By a league that in 2014 responded to the Ray Rice episode with a tough-as-nails, no-nonsense, consequences-be-damned, see-you-in-court-if-you-don’t-like-it-punk policy of six games for all cases of domestic violence. A punishment they haven’t applied to anyone. Not even once.

Just keep this in mind, the next time the NFL tries to pass itself off as the defender of women. A knight riding in on a majestic steed to be the champion of wives being abused by its own employees. My only question is, does anyone still buy that horsecrap?

No more.

In case you missed it because you’re so engrossed in America’s last election like Roger Goodell says you are, Chris Chase of Fox Sports took the occasion of the Bengals’ Vontaze Burfict’s ninth career fine for personal foul penalties to power rank all 32 NFL teams from most dirty to least.

Now, it would be logical to assume Cincinnati would win this title in a rout. After all, this is the team that bounced themselves out of the playoffs just last year with double personal fouls on the same play. First, Burfict delivered a Code Red on defenseless receiver Antonio Brown, then Pacman Jones got all handsy with Steelers’ assistant Joey Porter, who came on the field to check on Brown. And given the fact Burfict was suspended for the first three games of this season, you’d be smart to guess Cincy tops the list.

Smart, but wrong. That dishonor goes to … well, you know who it goes to.

1. New England Patriots

How do you define dirtiness? Is it the kind of late hits made famous by Vontaze Burfict (we’ll get to him in a minute) and headhunters such as (former Patriots) Rodney Harrison and Brandon Merriweather? Is it perennially being near the top of the league in various holding categories? Are you dirty if you whine to the refs like a Golden State Warrior? Or is it the Nixon-like shenanigans of Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots, those videotaping, ball-deflating, John Le Carre wannabes? While the off-field stuff is what propelled the Pats to No. 1, the real answer is that it’s all of them, friends. It’s all of them.

Is it me, or is the national media just not trying any more? You take a perfectly valid argument like who the dirtiest team in the NFL is, and rather than research how many unnecessary roughness penalties Cincinnati (second on the list) commit compared to say, Pittsburgh (fifth), or consider how many times Seattle (third) has had players suspended for banned substances, you just go to your default setting.

The Patriots cheat. Spygate. Deflategate. Nixon. John Le Carre. (Note: John Le Carre? What the deuce?) Whining for calls. (Like Ben Roethlisberger didn’t bellyache last year, claiming the Patriots defensive line had no right to shift prior to the snap.) You go back a decade to find a couple of safeties who drew roughness flags. (What? Was Chase too lazy to look into whether Gino Cappelletti ever got extra-curricular when he was playing cornerback in 1960?)

But this is what it’s come to. If you’re making a list of anything negative about anything to do with pro football, you automatically put the Patriots at the top and fill in the details later. Every NFL argument now is like asking “Who’s the best Chicago Bull ever?” or “Which member of the Jackson 5 had the most talent.” Everything is a non-starter and everyone else is vying for second place.

So come on, Chris Chase’s of the world. Try harder. Put in the effort. Use your imagination a little. The week two Patriots get assaulted with intent to injure by the most notorious, recidivist punk in football is not the time to be calling them “dirty.”
