Reality Shek: Leader of the Pack

You’d think in a quarterback league, we’d spend more time celebrating the league’s best quarterback — but you’d be wrong. Dave Dameshek rectifies that by paying homage to the player whose greatness is evergreen.

DDFP 155

Dave Dameshek is joined by “Handsome” Hank who fills in for Adam Rank, who is on assignment, with guest producer “Neck-tie” Milner. The trio open a can of worms on the best two-topping pizzas. Dave, as always, shows his age-ism by downplaying pineapple as well as the “scam” of hair conditioner. And by the way, half of the “ATL Debate Club,” Marc Sessler, joins the cast to share his list of the top quarterbacks in the league, much to the chagrin of Dave and Hank. Finally, Shek and Hank share their excitement for Super Bowl L in San Francisco as they prepare their restaurant checklist years in advance.

DDFP: Wild Card recap

(Associated Press)

Shek presses through his Tim Tebow-induced anguish to break down the wild-card round with the help of Rank and DDFP’s favorite 2012 Pro Bowler, No. 89 Steve Smith, who also talks about taking his Panther pals to Hawaii, bad QBs and Ike Taylor. Sudsy the NFL Stat Man then stops by to provide salient numbers leading up to the divisional round matchups.  Will you enjoy Episode 45?  To quote Marv Albert, “Yes!”

We have a winner in the Rodgers’ snappy comeback contest

Much obliged to everyone for the terrific responses (and spirited debate – it boggles my mind that some of you don’t consider Favre’s comments insulting, but I digress) to our question, “How should Rodgers fire back at the Ol’ Gunslinger?”

After careful consideration, the winner for best response is Travis Bateman from Saint Catharines, Ontario. That’s right, America: you lost to a Canadian.

Congratulations, Travis, you’ll be receiving a copy of Jonah Keri’s fantastic book about the Tampa Bay Rays, “The Extra 2%”.

In honor of #8 Aaron Rodgers, I’m listing my eight favorite submissions.

Special acknowledgment to Andrew Anaki Lucas of Westfield State, for his suggestion that Rodgers send Favre a text with a Super Bowl ring around… well, you know… but of course, the NFL is family friendly. We don’t reward that sort of filth. It does, however, make us laugh.

* Travis Bateman • Saint Catharines, Ontario
“I didn’t hear Brett’s comments, they must have been intercepted before they got to me”.

Ilana Hettleman
“I was surprised Favre didn’t retire sooner.”

Sean Heimbuch • Menominee, Michigan
“I sure hope I get as many opportunities to choke in championship games as Brett did”.

Griffin Haymes
“I have 6 letters that end this argument: XLV MVP”

Stephen Waterman • Lowell, Massachusetts
“I want to thank Brett for his kind words, and remind him again, that there is no need to congratulate me via text.”

Patrick Broe • London, United Kingdom
“The only number four green bay will remember is the 4 rings I’m going to bring”.

Kim Boisen • Aalborghus Gymnasium
Rodgers should wear a torn up pair of Wranglers around his waist, to wipe his hands on before each snap – and his only comment should be “Thank you Brett, for the very useful things you’ve shown me”

Alex Reardon • Normal, Illinois
“Aaron, did you hear the comments made by Brett Favre?” Rodgers – “Who?”

Thanks again to all who submitted. Check back soon for our next exciting contest…
