Rwa2play: Sorry, but the 49ers should own the #1 spot in beating the holy hell out of "Da Bears" while the Falcons and Texans struggled to beat bad-to-mediocre teams at home.
HaywoodJablonski: I'm an embarrassment to Fark Football. How did I not know that?
roc6783: The Bears are a mess, and i love it.
dletter: The Bears are not that much better than last years edition, especially without Cutler.
roc6783: 5 in a row, #1 in the NFC NORTH BIATCHES!!!!11!1!!1!!! Bears and Quitler fans can EABOD
Electromax: I wouldn't put much weight on beating the rapidly fading Bears.
scottydoesntknow: Yes but the Texans defense did not plan for Henne. They planned and prepared for Gabbert. The worst thing the Texans did was knock Gabbert out.
scottydoesntknow: And "Da Bears" are not a very good team. Excellent defense, but horrible offense. If the defense doesn't bring it, they will lose.
Cheesehead_Dave: 1. "Guess what I have behind my back!"
thecpt: scottydoesntknow: Yes but the Texans defense did not plan for Henne. They planned and prepared for Gabbert. The worst thing the Texans did was knock Gabbert out.They planned for one awful qb but instead had to face a different awful qb?... I'm not buying that one wholesale.Farking blackmon, I'm tempted to pick you up now.
Sapper_Topo: The Vikings should at least be in the top 10. No movement since last week and after watching the Bears last night I have this sneaking feeling that the Vikes will be knocking on the door to 1st in the NFC North sooner than later.
robsul82: HaywoodJablonski: I'm an embarrassment to Fark Football. How did I not know that?There was enough confusion this week that I take it on me that I apparently farked up and created the impression without intending to that the winner's exemption was only a tiebreaker and not a DQ-no-matter-the-score. So that's Me, Delhomme RatingTM - 16.7.

scottydoesntknow: but he's a hell of a lot better than Gabbert
Dammit the Jake beat me! I've been slacking here, but working IRL boooooooooooooooo. Anyway. Graph 1!
Shaggy_C: I was reading a stat that no rookie QB has gone into Foxborough and won since 1996. Knowing that, I don't think the Colts should feel too crushed - they win 3 more games, and I think they're automatically in the playoffs. Of course, they're going to get massacred in the first round, but it will make for a nice Cinderella story.
rickythepenguin: ***snip***@ SFO -6.5 CHI 37Did I hear Cutler's out? and possibly Aaron Smith or whatever his name is too? I'll hold off until I read more about it.
Nadie_AZ: Cardinals and Eagles are on the same trajectory. Which will hit the ground and explode, first?
NEDM: NEDM: Treygreen13: 2. Illegally kicking a ball out of bounds is a penalty of 10 yards and Loss of Down. This rule was changed this season to add the loss of down. I'm not sure why. If anyone can remember an occasion where a team illegally kicking a ball out of bounds benefited them lately, let me know.There's a popular .gif of Mark Sanchez kicking a fumble out of the back of his own endzone to save a TD. That was probably one of the reason the rule got changed.This one, to be specific.However, I was wrong. That was from this year, so it was unlikely to have sparked that rulechange.
Incorrigible Astronaut: libranoelrose: [i.imgur.com image 390x220]I heart that gif./Worst 1-2-3 QB punch ever//Team Blackout!
Treygreen13: 1. Oakland Raiders - 33.9% of their plays this season are running plays - one might think that with Carson Palmer and a receiving corps that most people outside fantasy couldn't name with a gun to their head, you'd think they'd try to run a bit. But they aren't.
robbiex0r: Both end up 12-4
Bunny Deville: The Jaguars have flatlined.
bionicjoe: Not drunk this week, but I'm still putting my Bengals in the playoffs. It would be the first time in 30 years they've made the playoffs in consecutive years.The Bengals are in the same place as the hyped Saints, but the Bengals are in a weaker conference with an easier schedule.Cowboys & @Pittsburgh are the tough games left and I still believe the Ravens will be resting in Week 17. Eagles, Chargers, & Raiders round out the schedule.And no I don't believe in the Colts and never have./farking Miami loss

INeedAName: three good teams in the division.
basemetal: /it's hard to be a Raiders fan
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: basemetal: /it's hard to be a Raiders fanI've hated the Raiders for a lot of years, but I have to respect their remaining fanbase. From PSLs, to Al Davis' dumbfarkery, to retarded coaches, y'all are forced to root for a pale shadow of what used to be one of the greatest teams ever.I'll still never forgive Al Davis for farking up the Coliseum for baseball.
RminusQ: [24.media.tumblr.com image 850x397]Shiat, I forgot to color Carolina and Jacksonville orange; they cannot win their divisions. I will look into what sites I can use that will allow me to post these screenshots (1) for free, (2) clearly, (3) without having to do a lot of work.No divisions that can be clinched this week, but four divisions feature a team with a 3 game lead and 6 to go, so Week 13 is likely to be when green and purple start making their way onto the chart. The tie will require only minimal reprogramming of the spreadsheet, partly to make it realize that 0.5-0.5 is not a completed and tied home-and-away, partly to make it realize that 1.5-0.5 is a completed and won home-and-away.
RminusQ: [justpredictions.webs.com image 737x541]Here is a strength of SCHEDULE graph. This is similar in two important ways and yet differs in three important ways from Di's GRAF TOO.Similarity #1: It tells you about what quality teams have played; who's had a cakewalk, and who's had the road of pain.Difference #1: It averages the record of all teams each of these squads has PLAYED. Di's only includes the teams each squad has BEATEN.Similarity #2: I crunch the numbers, via a tab in my TGTBSS file.Difference #2: The axes are different. The better record you are, the further to the right; the harder the schedule, the higher up. NE corner means you've played well against a tough schedule, SW corner means you've sucked against teams that themselves sucked (lookin' at you, Chargers).Difference #3: I don't spend the time making fancy icons for each team. I consider it the bare minimum to move the team tags around so they don't overlap.
neuroflare: RminusQ: ***snip***Awesome, let's ditch Di's graf
