That was a very impressive win by the Falcons, and much more a result of their excellent play rather than poor play by the Giants.


It was impressive. It seems to me that anybody can beat anybody at home on any given sunday. The saints were pathetic last week and the giants looked invincible; this week the saints shutout TB and the giant's get shut out. PARITY.

Nice win. Don't be fooled though, Cleveland has a lot of young talent that isn't polished yet (ex. Weeden's pick 6 to start 2nd half was terrible). And a terrible head coach, who was clearly outclassed today.

Cousins played well today, you have a talented back up.

Skipping the game to spend the day with my boys was easy today..


I think I might be able to help with the Pan, Pam dilemma

I am sooooo glad I'm not emotionally invested in the Lions. Against them today, the Cardinals passed for just 97 yards, with 0 TD and 1 INT, and rushed for only 99 yards on 29 carries. Yet the Lions manage to lose 38 to 10. Eek

The 4 turnovers by the Lions had to be the worst collection of 4 turnovers you could possibly have--two pick-6, another INT returned to the 3 yd. line, and a muffed punt recovered on Detroit's 5 yd. line. And to add additional insult to injury, the Lions turn it over on downs on their own 29. Longest scoring drive all game by Arizona was 30 yards.

Bang

The curse of Bobby Layne lives on...


Stay thirsty my friends.

After what happened yesterday there's no way any of my hard earned cash will be wagered on a Super Bowl bet this year. If only New England could have shown me just a bit more ability then I'd have at least my AFC pick. Now who's to say that Indy won't make it there?

As for the NFC someone's got to beat Russell Wilson and the Seahawks especially now that he's got his road game on. I'll go 40/40/20 Falcons, 49'ers, Seahawks.

There's more than a little too much hype around the Seahawks and their alleged road prowess. They beat Arizona, which is terrible, and Buffalo in a neutral site. Also hope karma comes back to bite that douche Pete Carroll for that bush league fake punt call when up by 30. Just cemented what an a$$hat that guy is.

I don’t know anyone who is saying the Seachickens have road prowess, they’re 3-5 on “the road” with wins over Carolina, Chicago, and the Bills on a neutral site... but at the same time I don’t think you can argue against the fact they are playing well at a point in the season you need to and winning games “you’re supposed to” if you’re going to make it to the playoffs...

as a Seahawks fan I’m not going to pretend I’m not a little biased... and to be honest, I also don’t know what to think of them as well... the quality teams they have beaten this year were struggling when the Hawks beat them (or didn’t in the case, of GB) and their losses have been to some of the lesser opponents on their schedule (except for SF). at the same time, 4 out of the 5 losses have been by less than a TD (and the 5th by only a TD) and three of them (AZ, DET, and MIA) were cases where Seattle had the lead and they lossed on game winning drives by the other team... basically, they’ve been in every game they have played, which I don’t think is the case for any other team this year (I say this anecdotally because the only team I see every week is Seattle).

i do agree with you regarding Petey (and Richard Sherman as well)... but as long as he wins (and Sherman plays like a Pro Bowl CB) Petey can do whatever he wants in my book!

Seems to me that the biggest knock on Seattle was the fact that they were (huge asterisk) undefeated at home and winless on the road until recently. The NFL talking heads seem to be using the most recent wins to show that the road woes are no longer and I'm saying hold your horses, they wins, while somewhat impressive, are hardly indicative of a team to be reckoned with. Seattle beat two bad teams (the Bears are a bad team right now) and a decent team at a neutral site. Seattle has been a surprise this year, Russel Wilson has made a huge difference IMO, but I still don't think they're good enough to win on the road in the playoffs.

I'm inclined to agree with CSM. They beat the Bears, but not easily, and the Bears really aren't playing well right now.

I'm pretty jealous of all these rookie QBs that are playing great for other teams.

I think the margins of victory for their road wins says a little something about the team. Winning on the road is difficult for any team against nearly any opponent. To do so in such resounding fashion shows something about the team, IMO. I guess time will tell...I think they beat the Niners this Sunday by 7.


Cheers!

i think we're all agreeing with CSM just saying it in different ways - except that winless on the road til recently part, they did beat Carolina in Week 5 Wink but i totally agree with what you're saying... and until they do win a road playoff game i completely agree with CSM on that point... though i will say, when compared to the Colts & Skins (two other teams with rookie QBs in the playoff hunt) i would rank them behind the Skins and ahead of the Colts if i had to rank order the three in terms of which had a better chance to win a road playoff game

Yeah, they beat the Bears by 7 in overtime. Could easily have gone the other way.

Hoping they do. Even if they win by 1 it's enough. I want a first round bye for the Packers.

The Bears have a really good QB, just an absolutely atrocious OL (and really only one weapon at WR). It's kind of astonishing that Chicago invested all that $ and high draft picks in Cutler and refuse to get him any help on the OL. Also, why anyone continues to hire Mike Tice to do anything but sell programs or scalp Super Bowl tickets is beyond me.

Well, the Packers have a worse OL and it doesn't seem to slow Aaron Rogers down that much. Of course he's probably the 2nd best QB in the game these days, but still.

Yeah, I think Cutler has some ability and it would be helped if he had another couple of solid receivers and a tight-end who could catch a pass. But, man, look at these young guys and imagine the futures for all these teams: the Redskins, the Seahawks, the 49ers, the Colts, all of them have first year QBs who look like they will be big stars.

Same range at the Icewino home too. Polar opposites at the end I'm guessing. Hope they meet again in a few weeks.

Niners need to win the division and get a first round bye. Seahawks are close given a few calls . Can't miss on so many opportunities again this week.
