//They would want payback

So would the Seahawks.

Payback for a gift win, or payback for "We'll take the ball and we're gonna score"?


The whole 2nd half of that game was a joke. The Packers were gifted their only TD of the game. Every time Golden Tate hits the endzone all anyone says is "and it wasn't a simultaneous catch! HAHALALALALOLOLOLOL". Not to mention the few Packer players who somehow blamed the Seahawks for that debacle. I honestly don't understand how the Packers have an issue with the Seahawks - they didn't do anything wrong. The Seahawks would want to show that they did beat GB that night and can do it again.

Nabb1: I had a good time watching the Saints demolish the Bucaneers on Sunday, but the crowd seemed far less energetic. It's been a really bizarre year, and the idiocy appears likely to continue now that Payton and the team want to make a drama out of his contract situation.


If we manage 8-8, I'll be satisfied. Typically those kind of numbers would piss me off, but after a summer and season this rife with BS I'll live with it.

Lunchlady: Friction8r: Baelz: Patriots needed that loss. I was a little worried they would ride an 8 win streak into the playoffs, and lose their edge again. They can now pin this loss on their lockers, and have it be an angry reminder from now til the Super Bowl. Rematch between these two teams will be fricken amazing to watch.

The Patriots are NOT leaving Mile High with a victory in the playoffs. The Broncos have improved a lot from early season, Doom and Gloom will pound Brady, and Manning will lead us to victory. If you find a way to the Super Bowl without playing in Denver, well...you won't.

Really?

Really?

The only tough game the Broncos have won was against the Ravens this week, and the Ravens are in freefall. They have beaten TWO teams that are currently better than .500 and their three loses have come against three teams that are expected to make a run at the Super Bowl. Now you could say they are playing better since then, but really, anyone looks good playing the Chiefs.


Except the Saints

Mile High has ALWAYS been a tough game for any road team. Couple that with Peyton back at his (near) best and that D, not sure anyone would want to make the trek for that game.

So good. If Russell revived that, I would have even greater respect for him. Assuming, of course, that the game ended the same way.

Treygreen13: roc6783: Treygreen13: seumasokelly: ***snip***

Luckily for the Cowboys, Frampton has come alive.

Sometimes I wonder if Frampton being a special-teamer means that he's better at taking smart tackling angles and wrapping people up in the open-field. More so than Sensabaugh or Barry Church. Barry's more of a ball-hawk and Sensabaugh is a... well he's Gerald Sensabaugh.


Alright, I loled.

The Packers are still not the same since losing Nick Collins. He was really, really good, but in comparison to Peprah, he was HoF caliber.

Super Chronic: He didn't run from the consequences of anything. He would have had to go a couple of years without a bowl game, that's it. This year's USC team might have been right back in the national title hunt if Carroll or some other non-Kiffin coach had been there. He'd have been fine. He left for the same reasons every coach leaves for a new opportunity.


Rationality has nothing to do with anything dude's saying. Oh, that Pete Carroll, having agents pay Reggie Bush and convincing him to leave school early! Carroll wants the best college football player in the country to leave the squad early! Then he left because he got caught doing...well, nothing. Because after all, USC was the only university to have had a student get paid on the side.

Oh, he ran up the score (except there aren't any real instances of this happening)! It's talking points from the former SEC hating points back when USC was going to title games instead of their cheating squads.

I hope to be there mocking you, but I just don't see it. Nor if the Packers face the 49ers or the Bears for a 3rd time. If the Giants don't make it, I think the Pack matches up well against the other NFC East teams.

See, people keep saying this as though Lambeau is a magical place. Sorry, that magic disappeared years and years ago.

Bad weather benefits rushing teams. Which of the two is a rushing team? Which of the two is a physical team? How did playing in Green Bay work out for the Packers last year?

That's sort of my point. This season, the Cowboys have lamented the loss of Charlie Peprah, Phil Costa, and Barry Church. Peprah wasn't even here before, Phil Costa is most famous for rocketing snaps over Tony Romo's head, and Barry Church got the starting job because of how good he was looking during OTAs.

I couldn't find any examples of Pete running it up. Then again, I think Harbaugh going for the fiftyburger in 2009 against Carroll was fine too.

//don't talk about playoffs


I'm a biased and delusional Bears fan, but I still think the Bears will make it because Vikings have HOU & GB while we just have ARI and DET. Not that I'm confident we'll win both of those; I just think it's unlikely that MIN wins those games.

/would not be surprised if AP carries MIN to the post-season.
/would call shenanigans if GB loses to MIN, and would believe it's an anti-Bear conspiracy by my neighbors-to-the-North
/would be shocked if either MIN or CHI did anything worthwhile in the play-offs.

To me, it's more about Seattle on the road in the playoffs than it is about GB at home. Seattle's only road playoff win in franchise history was Dave Krieg over Dan Marino.

It isn't like they got shiatstomped by the teams that beat them either though. They lost to the Pats by 10 with Fumbles McGahee and Derp Thomas throwing the ball all over the field willy nilly. Both those situations have been remedied by this point in the season. Then they lost to the Falcons by 6 with Peyton playing his worst game of the year, but it was also Week 2. And another 6 point loss to Houston in Week 3. They've absolutely played weaker teams since then, but they've also been playing much better football.

Fair point. These Seahawks are built to win on the road in the playoffs much more than any other team they've had for a while.

I'd rather go through the NFC East champs and Atlanta than GB.

Also the sort of attitude that keeps teams from getting the kind of performance out of their punter like the Giants got in that Super Bowl. He pinned the Pats inside their 8 yard line three times. Nobody gave a shiat except people who know how important Special Teams is, though. All anyone cares about is if QBs can throw the pretty deep ball at a time in the game the announcer tells them is "significant".

That is not to be underestimated. In this play, the quarterback signals to receiver Golden Tate to go deep, then delivers the perfect game-winning pass.

Seattle has a very good punter who drops it inside the 10 on a regular basis but that quarterback going deep thing can be significant indeed.
