Auteurs of the NFL

Kissing Suzy Kolber is running a great series this week on comparing NFL teams to film directors. The best so far:

49ers = Francis Ford Coppola: "Fading former greats done in by their fuckwit families."

Seahawks = Oliver Stone: "The refs are out to get us!"

Eagles= Martin Scorsese: "Can't win the big one" (Super Bowl/Oscar)

Redskins = Michael Bay: "Pearl Harbor and the Deion Sanders signing are similarly epic, costly blunders."

Vikings = Sofia Coppola: "She, like the Vikings' offense, is quiet and shitty." (Though the '05 Vikings would've been compared to Russ Meyer.)
