Move over, Patrick. Eli Manning may be moving in as Sponge Bob SquarePants' new best friend.

The NFL announced a new partnership with Nickelodeon on Monday in which the two companies will create a new animated series based on the NFL.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and Manning, the Giants' QB, will be among the players and coaches who lend their voices to the series.
...
The series, "Rush Zone: Guardians of the Core," will follow 10-year-old characters Ishmael as he attempts to save humanity when he learns the 32 NFL stadiums hold a benevolent life force that is under attack. Among the other characters:

Sudden Death: the villain determined to end humanity
Rusherz: the superheroes that represent the 32 teams
Blitz Botz: Sudden Death's army of robots
O.T.: Ishmael's mentor
...

I prefer my sports cartoons to feature an inexplicably gluttonous Wayne Gretzky, but this will do.

I have a better idea for a football cartoon........

Just here me out.

We have this one kid who always gets picked on, and because of that, has develops blistering speed. Seeing this, the most feared kid in school forces him to join the school's failing football team. But since he doesn't his identity revealed, he wears a green tinted eyeshield on his helmet.

And wears the #21.

And because that is what the character is known for on the field....... we could call this show..........


EYESHIELD 21!!!!!!!

Whattaya think?

I prefer my football cartoons to involve a high school football team on the bus going to a game and they magically get transported back to the times of King Arthur...




+100000000 internets for whoever gets that reference first

False. You lose all your internets.

There was a cartoon where a football team traveled back in time and like the QB became King Arthur or some crazy ****. 'Twas not a movie.

King Arthur and the Knights of Justice.

To be fair, I didn't know the exact premise of the show and had to look it up. But I did know it was a football team and I did know they became knights of the round table. And I certainly know it was orgasmic.

My major question:

If 32 NFL stadiums hold a life force, what is the 32nd stadium if the Jets/Giants share one?

That's going to be saved for the series finale.
