  1. BQBL: Chad Henne Hits the Summer Jam Screen (Plus the 2012 Season...

    David Jacoby

    Could there be a more fitting final play in the 2012 NFL season than Tony Romo clinching defeat with a horrific interception? No, there could not. That super Romo-ish floating Christmas gift to the football fans of the beltway not only marked the end...

  3. BQBL: Skinny Josh Freeman's Summer Jam Screen Debut

    David Jacoby

    With all the rookie quarterbacks in the NFL BQBL this year, you'd think that there would be more fresh faces on the BQBL Summer Jam Screen. Aside from the artist currently known as Ryan Lindley, the rookie crop has been more or less serviceable. The ...

  4. The BQBL Gets a Little Too Dark (Thanks to John Skelton)

    David Jacoby

    The BQBL got dark this week. Pointing and laughing at the Jets and Cardinals last week was a hoot. Their mutual ineptitude gave the game a humorous, whimsical vibe — like watching tee-ball infielders turn a ground ball to second base into an in...

  5. BQBL: Ryan Lindley Continues the Cardinals Tradition

    David Jacoby

    No one is safe from the BQBL Summer Jam Screen. Atop the BQBL leader board this week are Matt Ryan, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, and Matt Stafford. While these "elite" quarterbacks (whatever that means) had surprisingly atrocious performances, there ...

  6. BQBL: The Return of Ryan TAINTehill

    David Jacoby

    There is much to celebrate this week in atrocious quarterbacking: Yo Gabba Gabbert was benched, Nick Foles did many Nick Folesian things, Mark Sanchez continued his campaign to ensure that Tim Tebow is front-page news, and Eli may have officially reg...

  7. BQBL: Sam Bradford's Across-the-Pond Troubles

    David Jacoby

    This week in BQBL was just ... well ... weird. We had TAINTs, we had benchings, we had a postgame Mike Vick act like he was in an eighth-grade relationship gone bad — breaking up with Andy Reid before Andy Reid could break up with him. Ye...

  8. BQBL: Waka Flacco Flame and the Debut of Ponder's Progressions

    David Jacoby

    The scores weren't high on the BQBL leaderboard this week, but the outstanding individuals occupying it performed acts displaying a level of ineptitude that we had yet to see in the BQBL. Three-and-Out Ravens (Joe Flacco), 79 points: With both...

  9. BQBL: The Alex Smith Confidence Meter

    David Jacoby

    The way we define a benching is by asking the question, "If he had played well, would he still be on the field?" I bring this up because there were some borderline benching calls this week — a couple of those sympathy benchings, those-bruised e...

  10. BQBL: Antonio Ramiro Romo's Interceptioning Masterpiece

    David Jacoby

    Mark Sanchez draws "Tebow" chants from the MetLife Stadium crowd, Brandon Weeden TAINTs a masterpiece, Ryan Pickspatrick more than lives up to his name. Yet none, not one, of these atrocious performances even broke the BQBL top three. This week was T...

  13. Grantland Network: The Jalen Rose Report

    David Jacoby

    After resisting all summer, the Rose Report finally turns its attention to football. Jalen is super fired up to head to Dallas and see his Wolverines take on the 'Bama boys in Jerry's house. Something tells me that Dez Bryant will not be champagning ...

    David Jacoby

    We included video in this week's podcast because we think it is important for people see what happens behind the scenes, like the fact that Jalen will record an entire pod with a baseball bat in his hands. Everyone has their thing. Now that the NFL s...
