NN NFL Tournament of Badness Opening Round: Rats and Andrew Luck

Yesterday's matchup between "Players Doing Stupid Things" and "Rashard Mendenhall's Twitter Account" went up thirty-five minutes late, so when this post goes live, voting for that match will still be up, so be sure to head over there and cast your vote. As it stands, the higher-seeded "Players Doing Stupid Things" is winning and that's basically what I expected. Somebody else also noted that the other option can be defined as "doing stupid things," and that's why I matched them up in the bracket (after they ended up lining up seed-wise, of course).

Today, we've got a better and more 49ers-relevant matchup that I think you'll enjoy. Then again, I've been wrong a lot lately, so bracing myself for the onslaught of insults coming my way. "Needing To Take a Look at The Film and Find The Rat" is taking on "Tanking The Season to Draft Andrew Luck." I honestly have no idea which one is going to win this, especially because I know that there's actually people here who think the latter is a good idea. For shame, people.

So make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the left side of the bracket and of course, view the entire bracket. But first: remember, we are voting on what we believe to be the absolute worst thing of the two. If you're voting in a worst food contest, and you like pizza more than hamburgers, you would then vote for hamburgers in that matchup. Get it? Got it? Good. Make the jump.

(5) Needing To Take a Look at The Film and Find The Rat

This one is pretty straight forward, as 49ers fans, no? Coach speak is bad enough, but the same exact coach speak week in and week out is infuriating. Mike Singletary went on and on about needing to look at the film, even when answers were clear as day. Maybe that means the questions shouldn't have been asked in the first place, but accountability is important. It's like ... what's he looking for? Do they have a couple guys in the back working on Adobe Premiere to insert some things for Singletary to notice to placate him? I assure you, Singletary: there are no completions, touchdowns, sacks or interceptions on film that were not there when the game actually happened. Also, remember the rat? Yeah. You remember the rat. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

(12) Tanking The Season to Draft Andrew Luck

Ugh. Really, guys? This is the best thing we can think of? You don't like a draft pick? Well that's good, we can tank the season and draft Andrew Luck. What, we have to travel to Green Bay again? Tank the season to draft Andrew Luck. Alex Smith is our quarterback? He should lose games on purpose because that will be smart for him to do. Herp and derp and derp and herp, gents. That's all I have to say to you. I wash my hands of that silliness.
