Sour Rankings: Dolphins face fumble and Kevin Huber injury headline bad week for STs

You’ve seen (and likely disagreed with) the Week 15 Power Rankings. Now the Sour Rankings take a spin through the worst of the past week in the NFL …

10. Jet Chevrolet in Seattle: The Emerald City car dealership held a promotion last week promising $35K each to 12 different customers if the Seahawks' shut out the Giants. Oops.

"We never expected that we’d actually be giving away the money," owner Jim Johnson said.

Seattle won 23-0.

9. The Kevin Huber no-call: The NFL announced Tuesday that there should have been a flag thrown on Terence Garvin for his block on Cincinnati punter Kevin Huber, which fractured Huber's jaw. The reaction from everyone who saw the play: "Yeah, no kidding."

Huber was a good sport about the whole thing, even changing his Twitter profile pic to a split-second after Garvin's helmet rocked Huber's chin.

8. Terrible NFL-themed gift ideas: Please don't give this to anyone.

7. Jim Schwartz's high school picture: Monday night was rough enough for the embattled Lions' coach without ESPN broadcasting this to a national-TV audience:

6. Robert Griffin II: No, I didn't miss a Roman numeral there. With Robert Griffin III shut down for the season, his dad reportedly has begun pushing Washington owner Daniel Snyder to make a coaching change. The man RGII wants running the show for RGIII: current Baylor head coach Art Briles, who was the younger Griffin's college coach.

5. Atlanta Hawks vs. Tony Romo: Everyone wants to get their shots in on the Cowboys' quarterback, it seems ...

That's Al Horford, who hit a game-winning shot last week to drop the Washington Wizards. Romo, of course, did not match that clutch performance versus the Packers.

Dallas linebacker Justin Durant did not appreciate the Hawks' humor, replying on Twitter: "Shut the f--k up". Later, he sort of tweeted an apology: "My b I'm frustrated just like you all are".

4. Julian Edelman's game pants: Wintry weather has been a factor for a number of NFL games in recent weeks. But not in Miami, where it was still toasty enough in Week 15 to lead to our NSFW Moment of the Week:

3. Josh Sitton's World War Z: Packers lineman Josh Sitton made an appearance on Jim Rome's radio show this week and, naturally, talked about how he could survive the zombie apocalypse better than teammate Greg Van Roten:

“He’s not a survivor,” Sitton said of Van Roten. “He’s a Yankee boy from up there in New York. He doesn’t know how to live on the land. I’ve been hunting for a long time. I know how to use a gun and clean an animal. He’s smart, I’ll give him that. He’s got me in that department, but I’m going to outlive him for sure. And he’s way worse of an athlete than me.”

Sitton also laid out his strategy for dealing with a zombie attack.

“You get to cold weather,” Sitton said matter-of-factly. “Zombies definitely don’t like cold weather and you already have a plan in place, people you trust that you have to be around. Then you have lots of weapons and you try to fortify yourself in a big place with a big old fence. Then you try to just rock on and kill lots of zombies. That’s honestly, I hope, how I go out someday, in a zombie apocalypse.”

1. Handwritten letters from children: Nothing "sour" to see here -- this is awesome. Huber received this letter from a fan after his unfortunate moment versus Pittsburgh:

In case you're having trouble reading it, the child writes that he hopes "the Steeler player loses his house and has to live in his car."

The Seahawks received a much more combative letter from a six-year-old 49ers fan. It read:

"Seahawks, a sea serpent is watching the game. If you win, it will eat the fans and eat you. A virus will come into your throat and give you the flu. You'll probably need a flu shot at Fred Meyer. No Seahawks beyond this point."
