With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Dave Dameshek is preparing a heaping pile of shame and he is inviting all of Week 12′s biggest blockheads. Check out who finds a seat at the table and receives their just desserts.
Shek & Rank are joined in Studio 66 by former NFL scout/current show favorite Daniel Jeremiah to break down the latest between Peyton & Brady, the NFC North & AFC North races, who deserves to be #1 in college football, and the ‘Road House’ remake. Jeremiah also lays out an interesting option for the USC head coaching job before Producer Black Tie reads fan #DDFP tweets.

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Coming to stadiums around Football America… backups, backups, and more backups! Reclamation projects signed at a discount! Plucky everymen with courageous hearts and weak arms! Passers who weren’t good enough to start the season ahead of Blaine Gabbert! Yes, if you like mediocre QBin’, you’re gonna love NFL Week 12!
Out of the 13 games coming up on Sunday, ten backup quarterbacks will start. Where are Don Strock, Mike Kruczek and “The Throwin’ Somoan” Jack Thompson when we need ‘em?
The Steelers make the short drive across the OH/PA border to face the Browns’ backup’s backup, while Josh Freeman’s short-term backup Mike Glennon is under center for the Bucs in Detroit.
…But that ain’t nuthin’. Four of this weekend’s games pit second-stringers against one another. Four games, no starting QBs!
In Houston, it’s Chad Henne versus Case Keenum. In an NFL game. Not a preseason one. One that counts.
Think that’s bad? The Bears’ playoff hopes ride on Josh McCown’s right arm, which may or may not have been made stronger by all those clipboard curls. The good news (for the Bears): the Rams are starting Kellen Clemens… who once got cut by the Jets because Mark Sanchez and Grandpa Mark Brunell were just too dang good.
In Oakland, it’s a duel between two guys named Ryan and Matt. Doesn’t exactly harken Mad Max v Master Blaster in Thunderdome, eh?
Christian Ponder – the season-opening starter who became Matt Cassel’s backup before he became Josh Freeman’s backup – is starting for the Vikes in Lambeau against Seneca Wallace’s backup, Scott Tolzien, while America’s Backup, Matt Flynn, looks on from the sideline… until he gets in, of course.
Let’s get to the scores…
