    Yeah I never got my hopes up too much, but I was definitely praying for a miracle. Oh well, I'll have him for like 8 years in my fantasy league because it's a keeper league and I don't envision a scenario where I ever let him go.

    Good news for Pats fans though that he's at least back out there. Looks like he'll be ready to go for the playoffs.

    Is there a more bizarre team in football than the New York Giants? Some weeks, like last week, they look like a team that is on the verge of defending their title. Other weeks, like today, they look a team that has no business whatsoever of being anywhere near the playoffs. They are one of the most perplexing teams I've ever seen in any sport.

    Big statement win by the Falcons today. But the thing is, I could easily see the Giants going into Atlanta and winning in the playoffs.

    Houston's win and Denver's win means the Patriots must win tonight or drop to the #3 seed. A loss would leave little hope of catching Denver, who finishes at home vs. the Browns and the Chiefs.

    The Ravens are just awful right now.

    I obviously want the Colts to play the Ravens if they make the playoffs. That would be much much much better than playing New England or Denver.

    The Ravens' big opportunity was last year. That AFC Championship game in New England was very winnable, but they just didn't make the plays at the end.

    I think New England will beat the Niners tonight, though I expect the Niners too look much better than the Texans last week (though it would be hard to play worse). Kaepernick is going to have to make some huge plays in Foxboro for the Niners to win and I just don't see it. If he does make some plays to pull out a win though, then I guess the debate about whether Harbaugh made the right call or not will be silenced.

    They really are one tough nut. I've given up on trying to figure them out when it comes to the regular season.

    I love watching the bears collapse.

    Me too. I can't sand the Bears.

    The Giants won two out of five Super Bowls in epic fashion. Two wins at Lambeau and two Super Bowls against New England. They only won one home playoff game during those two runs, which was last year against Atlanta. It's remarkable what they accomplished. But how can a team that goes on playoff runs like that be so incredibly average in the regular season year after year? It's perplexing.

    Eli has a playoff resume' that is matched only by Brady. I guess you could put Big Ben in there too because he's come up big in the playoffs. But what's so disappointing about Eli is that he's never been able to put the Giants on his back in the regular season year after year and will them to 11+ wins. That's what great quarterbacks too. Obviously the playoffs are important and Eli's playoff resume' can go up against anyone's, but you risk not even making the playoffs when you have so many mediocre regular seasons like the Giants have had. Peyton and Brady basically guarantee their teams 12+ wins year after year and that's what makes them special. I keep waiting for Eli to get to that level and it never happens. It's what holds him back when you grade his career.

    49ers are absolutely pulverizing the Pats. Man Harbaugh can coach. Oh, and this game ends what was left of the Kaepernick-Smith debate. Kaepernick is simply the more talented player and can make throws that Smith can't. Just think how good this guy could be once he gets experience under his belt.

    It would be 6 teams if the Seahawks hadn't been gifted a win by the replacement refs against the Packers.

    This year is so weird.

    Teams that smashed a very good team the week before get smashed the next week, sometimes by an inferior team. There is just no continuity at all.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Why is New England's offensive line so good while ours is so terrible? Is it talent? Is it coaching? It just blows my mind how ours can be so terrible while other QB's have enough time to take a dump and read a Chris Baldwin article before feeling any pressure.

    I absolutely hate it when teams go to the prevent. It backfires so much, and yet teams keep doing it.

    I just love everything about Sunday Night Football. The match-ups, the graphics, the presentation, the awesome HD-quality. I've actually always kind of liked Collingsworth too. He is quick at pointing stuff out. He teaches you more than most color guys, IMO.

    Agreed.

    I very rarely watch a full 60 minutes of a non-colts regular season game. I watched that entire niners game. Entertaining football at its finest.

    Seattle is sneaky good too though. The NFC is a lot more interesting than the AFC as I could make a claim for Atlanta (w/HFA), Green Bay, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington (healthy RGIII) all potentially getting to the Super Bowl. They're all very good teams, but none are so dominate like Denver and New England probably are in AFC (If one of those two doesn't make Super Bowl in AFC I'd be shocked). New England just had a terrible game vs SF and a let down from the Houston game, I don't see it as some huge flaw for them going forward that wasn't already known.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    I've never understood the Collinsworth hate. I like him too. He's like an articulate John Madden minus the Favre love fest. He was also good at the Olympics. Of course, working with Bob Costas and Al Michaels would make anyone look good but I don't think that's it. He's my favorite color man of the MNF, SNF, TNF groups by a pretty wide margin. He's light years better than Gruden. You ever really listen to Gruden. If you didn't know better, you'd think that every player and play he commented on was the greatest thing that ever happened in the history of sport. Add to that that ESPN forced Jaws, a guy who REALLY knows football, out of the booth to make room for Gruden and it's even worse.
