What a FANTASTIC Weekend So Far! On Top of Virginia Beating FSU

…I get to read the most beautiful, poetic and truthful Sports Illustrated article ever written. Why is it so?

Because I HATE WADE PHILLIPS’ GUTS, that’s why. And the article’s ALL about how BAD Wade Phillips SUCKS…and how great Doug Flutie art. **heartaflutter**

And payback, baby.

The Curse of Flutie strikes again with injury to Texans’ Schaub

Only a flake would doubt the Curse of Doug Flutie.

If you didn’t believe in the Curse before this week, it’s time to walk toward the light after we learned Monday that the high-flying Texans have lost quarterback Matt Schaub with a foot injury, most likely for the year.

This poltergeist of pigskin speaks to earthly beings through an extra-large medium, the Cold, Hard Football Facts. And what the Curse of Flutie tells us is quite simple: any team that employs Wade Phillips, now the defensive coordinator with the Houston Texans, is doomed to miserable failure — usually due to some sort of downfall at the QB position and always on the heels of cruelly heightened expectations that make the pain all the worse.

The Curse of Flutie is karmic retribution from the great spiritual beyond for the fact that Phillips benched our pint-sized hero passer before the 1999 playoffs when both were with Buffalo, despite the fact that the Bills had gone 10-5 with Flutie at the helm.

…Twelve years later, and Buffalo has never returned to the playoffs.

But that was just the start of the Curse of Flutie. It’s left a predictable trail of misery, defeat and missed opportunity in its wake from one end of the NFL to the other. Any team that employs Phillips is doomed to suffer.

…Football fans have two choices: they can believe in the Curse of Flutie or they can wallow in their ignorance and misery.

Before you decide, consider the statistical signature from the Gridiron Gods to affirm the Curse:

In Flutie’s last game in a Bills uniform in 2000, he pitched the proverbial perfect game, completing 20 of 25 passes (80 percent) for 366 yards, 14.6 YPA, 3 TD, 0 INT, and a perfect 158.3 passer rating.

It was and remains the only “perfect” passing game in the history of the Buffalo franchise. Jack Kemp never posted a perfect passer rating for the Bills. Joe Ferguson never posted a perfect passer rating for the Bills. Jim Kelly never posted a perfect passer rating for the Bills. Ryan Fitzpatrick never posted a perfect passer rating for the Bills.

Only Flutie has accomplished this feat … and then he never played another down in a Buffalo uniform. It was a fitting middle-fingered statistical salute to the organization that wronged him so badly in 1999.

Today Flutie’s earthly body works the broadcast booth analyzing college football and running his charity, the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. He occasionally walks on water.

But his aggrieved spirit roams the NFL, seeking vengeance upon Phillips for the worst coaching decision of the 20th century.

All I can say is “aMEN!”

And, “Go, Eli!”

    But for the fact that you linked to and quoted extensively from this story, Sis, I would asking the question, “Who is this Wade Phillips who has brought forth the fearful anger of the Tree Hugging Sister?”

  2. tree hugging sister says:

    He is the pear-shaped, no-talent, braindead spawn of coach “Bum Phillips”.
