Where to begin with the stupidity from Week 7? While nothing stood out in extreme fashion, there might have been more stupid this week in the NFL than any of the first six weeks of 2013. It's only a shame that we publish this stupid post before Monday Night Football, because this Minnesota Vikings-New York Giants game is destined to be laced with stupidity.  We work with what we have, though, and the quantity of stupid moments and trends was quite high on Sunday alone. For example... The stupidest special-teams decision This goes to Adam Jones of the Cincinnati Bengals, who decided to field this punt from his own two-yard line... Yep, Pacman Jones just fielded a punt at the 1. #DumbestPlayerInNFL #Bengals — Dave Biddle (@davebiddle) October 20, 2013 He nearly made it back to the 10-yard line. The Bengals would score on the ensuing drive anyway, but that doesn't make his decision any less stupid. Oh, and it came one week after Jones decided to field this punt...
