Wow....three weeks to go...it all goes so FAST too...weird thing....I don't think I'm going to miss it when it's gone this year....crazy ain't it (maybe it's the amount of sh!t games and teams on the TV each week)....another Thursday Night STINKER....and more holiday joy for all as my birthday week football begins!!!




Thursday Dec. 8:

Cleveland at Pittsburgh:

Who in God's name thought this was a good idea for Thursday Night?? I won't spend a lot of time on this one....hell I almost didn't write my preview till Friday in protest!! All you need to know about this game was the conversation between us all during the Browns and Ravens "Oh my God...how are the Browns 9th in the league in pass defense?? They're AWFUL!"... Me: "Simple, their run defense is so pathetic why would you bother throwing on them??" (case in point look what Ray Rice did).....this might be the week Laflamme feels better about that Mendenhall for Chris Johnson deal....

Winner: Steelers

Game Quality: DUD, DUD, DUD...this makes Devils and Ottawa look good!




Sunday Dec. 11:

1pm:

Patriots at Redskins:

One week after the Redskins got torched by the Jets offense.....a team with an NFL offense comes to town, and they might be a lil ticked after taking the foot off the gas and letting the Colts almost come back (I still think that's classic Belichek spite refusing to cover the spread....and like I said last week...the best way to spite the Colts was....to let them win...hrmmmm), the Redskins have a nice defense but such a horrific offense that even if Roy Helu ran for 200 yards good ol'Rex would find a way to screw it up....give the Redskins no chance in hell here and move on.....

Winner: Patriots

Game Quality: DUD (again)

Saints at Titans:

The Saints are an unstoppable juggernaut at home...but this is in Nashville....on the road the Saints are 3-3 and an UNTHINKABLE loss (still) to the then-winless Rams, who only won ONCE since then....the Titans have won two in a row and Chris Johnson is looking back in form now...Saints D averages 114 yards a game allowed to running backs (and Tebow's if they played him)...more alarming is the 3rd worst pass defense (264 yards/game)...Mark Ingram is banged up (again...something about Saint running backs inspire fragility eh?)...and I'd like to see the Titans keep it interesting in the AFC South....

Winner: Titans (I know...you guys don't take me serious anyway)

Game Quality: ** 3/4

Eagles at Miami:

Have the Eagles folded their tents and quit on Andy Reid? It sure seems so doesn't it? What a stinker in Seattle last week....then again when Vince Young looks like a stoned deer staring into the headlights of a semi doing 75 MPH coming down the highway....how good can your team look? The one thing you can say about VY (besides exposing the fraud of "QBs who just win"...stop glaring at me Tebow fans :P....that Steeler ballbag at the bar is still stinging from me stuff his hail Tebow comments with a reminder on when Vince Young was that "he just wins" garbage....least he didn't come back and say that Tebow was white and VY isn't....)...I've grown an appreciation for how good Vick is in moving in the pocket and keeping plays alive behind that stinky trash offensive line and in making plays in spite of that.....the Dolphins, while equally as done, are playing good defense, running the ball and getting quality QB play from Matt Moore (Moore's solid play has been the most damming thing you can see about Chad Henne and his NFL future....)...sadly the Dolphins are doing enough to save Sporano's little job down there, though it is a LOT easier to come out and play hard with no pressure on you and win late games when you started like 0-7, they'd fold again when the games matter next September....Jesus I wrote all that on this anti-football morsel?? Go figure....I always do....anyway....

Winner: Dolphins

Game Quality: *** (the train wreck of the Eagles adds a point!)

Atlanta at Carolina:

The Panthers won last week...but it was a Josh Freeman-less mess of a Tampa Bay team that's crashing through the sky like Sputnik (too old a reference?....should I stick with Owen Hart?)...anyway, beating Tampa isn't that impressive....on the other hand, the Falcons had as bad a loss as you can have to a good team in the other conference....afraid to run the ball on the Houston D, they turned to Matt Ryan to toss it up....and never found the end zone....as fun as the sCam Newton story is this year, their defense...not so much fun...132 yards a game allowed rushing, that should mean a feast for Michael Turner, and the Falcons gotta win at least 3 of the last 4 games to be a safe bet for the playoffs....this makes this a "gotta have" game....


Winner: Falcons

Game Quality: ** (the NFL made me try to make this sound interesting so they can hype sCam!)

Tampa Bay at Jacksonville:

Holy backed up toilet type of BAD football!!!! Josh Freeman is gonna try to play this week....does it matter? Their defense is still bad....that's good for MJ-D...the Jags can run the ball and play some defense (though Phillip Rivers not only lit them up....but didn't make mistakes last week....either Rivers found it, or the Jags stunk with the new coach....I'd rather think the Jags stunk actually)...but yeah, this game could be amusing enough to watch...then again my hockey teammates tell me I'm nuts and love pain, collisions, impact and have a weird liking for it....whateverrrrr.....


Winner: Bucs

Game Quality: * (this doesn't DESERVE anti-football!)

Houston at Cincinnati:

This is a fascinating one....the Bengals until last week looked ready to finally pick off a good team in the AFC, and it's amazing how the Texans are doing this....more so when you look at the injured list (well aside of Matt Leinart failing epically....TJ Hooker's looked more impressive then Leinart did in the first half of that game)...the Bengals don't allow a lot on the ground, or a lot of points...but neither do the Texans....the Texans have stuffed better offenses then the Bengals though....and when Laflamme makes a BOLD PREDICTION....you run the other way and bet your life on the other team.....I'd not take a Laflamme BP to the bank "if the world ended tomorrow...." (don't worry...he gets the joke....) I need no other reason to bet hard on the Texans....


Winner: Texans (Laflamme predictions are as bad as #Buffaloing)

Game Quality: ***

Vikings at Lions:

The Vikings did something unthinkable....they made Tim Tebow into a pocket passer....that's how bad their pass defense is...really really bad....so bad that maybe Jared Allen should stop going on the NFL Network laughing at other teams screwing up and should worry more about getting anally violated by God's pet QB eh? Now enter the Lions....Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson....this could get ugly.....and I might just enjoy that (there's something about Paul Allen's broadcast homerism that makes me hate the Vikings, like I do the Avs and Penguins in the NHL), this is the game the Lions won't miss Mr Suh and his FOOT STOMP OF IMPENDING DOOM as much....


Winner: Lions

Game Quality: **

Chiefs at Jets:

How THE HELL do the Jets find WORSE offenses to play against every week? Seriously?? Shane Falco!?!? Or is this the week they dummy up the playbook and shove Kyle Orton in there? The Chiefs played the Steelers to the max, and beat the Bears (though without Matt Forte who was like their RVD....you know, the whole f'ning show and all....that's a big asterisk with a team that lets up 130 yards a game on the ground).....this should be another easy game for the Jets....though it probably won't be....the Jets don't know "easy sit back and relax" wins, but at the day's end they will do just enough in this one....

Winner: Jets

Game Quality: **


Colts at Ravens:

How do the Ravens get the awful Colts after feasting on the Browns?? Oh yeah when the schedule was made this was a "tough game"...oops, I really got nothing to say here....a loss here clinches the Colts' tank job officially, like it was any mystery....let the Manning vs Luck drama BEGIN *sigh*...that just ain't right.....


Winner: Ravens

Game Quality: DUD (who the HELL is scheduling the 1pm games, really??)




4pm:

Bears at Denver:

So seriously, the Bears guys asked Tebow to PRAY for Cutler's thumb (which FYI...has a twitter!), seriously though it really is like the almighty is mowing down opponents for this guy, it's getting annoying...."But Scott, he lit up the Vikings!!"....Give me Laflamme and two other 6'4'' stumbling fools and I'll throw for 250 and 3 TDs on that garbage secondary, so don't give me that!!! And now....no Matt Forte?? CMONNN...this just ain't fair I tell you....I actually have to pick a QB who used the word "golly" when talking about the Bears defense?? Holy Hell....when I die and I'm at the Pearly Gates, before they look at my resume and laugh me on to hell I'm gonna ask what in the Blazes the almighty sees in this guy and if he likes him so much, why didn't he gift Tebow with an arm that can THROW the football??

Winner: Denver

Game Quality: **

49ers at Arizona:

You know I get a sneaking suspicion if the 49ers get to the 31 yard line with two timeouts and a tie game they will ACTUALLY know how to manage the clock and get the game winning field goal.....San Fran is a Ginger-Free coaching zone!! That's all I need to know.....


Winner: 49ers

Game Quality: DUD

Buffalo at San Diego:

It's been a rough, injury filled second half for the Bills....it's funny how it all fell apart when Fitz got re-up'ed, it's been a bigger curse then 47 yards wide right...or Brett Hull.....or California Croissants! The Chargers look like they got it right last week....the Bills defense is all sorts of beat up...and the Chargers gotta win them all to have a chance in the West (though they'd be better off losing out and making the needed changes in coach and GM, but that never seems to work out either....right Dolphin fans?)...it's still a shame that the Bills fell like Hasek in the crease back in 1999....they've been fun to watch.....


Winner: Chargers

Game Quality: ** 3/4

Oakland at Green Bay:

Alright, so I was offsides on the Raiders last week...but you know what...name the AFC team that hasn't sh!t the bed so badly it flooded the toilet in the same sitting? Green Bay had their "scary moment" last week (as scary as you can call it when A-Rod flicks his wrist makes three plays and wins the game when it matters....I really wish that "genius" Ginger-Coach was taking notes on how to ACTUALLY manage a clock at the end of a game)...the Raiders are still without McFadden and a bunch of those speedy WRs, and to beat Green Bay...you better have all hands on deck....the big thing in this game will be to see if Green Bay bounces back and wallops on my poor jinxed Raiders....if they don't the "are they out of gas" talk is going to begin....even if they win this ugly as hell, I can't see the Raiders pulling this out.....

Winner: Packers

Game Quality: **




8pm:

Giants at Dallas:

For all the Giants fans laughing and pointing at the "Cowboys December swoon"....14-18 under Coughlin in December...ohhhh, you guys is world beaters!!! Last in rushing....29th in defense....but yet they wanna hold their head on an "almost" against Green Bay?? CMON! Was that a bump in the road for Dallas, or the beginning of the end and another collapse....but you could say the same about the Giants too...they still can't run the ball, the D is still all kinds of beat up, and really a "moral victory" is still a LOSS you know...I do expect these teams to split in the 2 games they got left....so gimmie the home team and more false hope in Dallas.....


Winner: Dallas

Game Quality: *** 1/2




Monday Dec. 12:

St. Louis at Seattle:

Damn it's nice to see the NFL hates ESPN as much as I do ain't it? And even better...I got ANOTHER HOCKEY GAME MONDAY!!! YAY FOR THE LOSERS BRACKET!!! Then again my team sucks as bad as this game will :P....back into analyst mode here....Seattle's good at home, the Rams were only good when hosting the Saints....this is an easy one to pick and move on from....

Winner: Seattle

Game Quality: DUD

NFL Power-Rankings, Week 13:

AFC:

1. DENVER....why the hell not....I need to make God happy before my birthday, and it's all the NFL Network talks about!!

2. New England...I'm still unimpressed by the 4 in a row....and the 5th won't help either....

3. Houston...BIG win at home against a good team in Atlanta....TJ HOOKER is the new Tebow!

4. Baltimore....6-0 at home and looking at a bye...good sign...

5. Steelers....like a hemorrhoid to team MANTA

NFC:

1. Green Bay....zzzzzz

2. 49ers....nappy time continues....

3. Saints...I should copy/paste this....

4. Giants....*sigh*, their almost is better then the beaten Lions, decimated Bears, and the Falcons looked like ass

5. Seattle?? Hell no one deserves the 5-spot in the NFC.....

Correction Crash...all the Network talks about re: the Broncos is Tebow Tebow Tebow. About how everyone is becoming a believer.

Don't mean to harp on it, but if I'm on the Denver D, I'm getting to point where I'm approaching "WTF?!" mode. Especially last week...it's now "See, Tebow can keep up in a higher-scoring game," when his defense scored 7 points and set up the winning field goal. Nothing against Tebow...I just wish the "experts" would start telling the whole Bronco story.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I think winning trumps all gripes. Denver is in a position they probably didn't think they would be in only a month ago.

A couple of loses should open the cracks between the Denver D (the unheralded stars of the team) and weak link in the offense.

This weeks games really suck. I wish I were playing Hockey on Monday, so I don't accidentally watch the horrible ESPN game.


The NFL is a match-up game...because team X matches up good with team Y, doesn't make them a better team as a whole....the Ravens seem to be scared to take the leash off Flacco and that's going to hurt them in a big game this year....

And one thing that is scary about the Texans...how often do you get a team with much talent that has as little to lose as the Texans do now....they're still in good shape for a BYE even (as long as they split with the Titans they lock up the division), a good defense doing well without it's best player, I think TJ Hooker (I don't care what his name really is) looks like a player.....

The only games you need to watch this week are Dallas, Houston, Saints and Bears....the rest are anti-football gems!

...and overlooks how pathetic the Viking secondary is....funny how Miller misses a game and the D starts letting up points too....he's a lock for defensive ROY, he's making a helluva case over both sCam and Dalton too.....

the media is fascinated with how a guy can be SO BAD at what he does and still win....it IS a bizarre story, add in the fact that his coach and GM know the guy is a Fraud....and we've never seen ANYTHING like it before....

A couple of loses should open the cracks between the Denver D (the unheralded stars of the team) and weak link in the offense.


the problem is none of the teams on their schedule have the chops to get it done....

Correction:

Scared to take the leash off Flacco the past two games. One against one of the top ranked pass defenses (SF) and the other against a team that can't stop the run (Cleveland). Otherwise he is averaging about 260 passing yards per game. Hardly, scared. It's game planning against your opponents.

It's actually 241 yds per game. That ranks him 17th in the league. He's also 21st in passer rating.

http://espn.go.com/n...ingYardsPerGame

Passing yards are up this year, big-time...you have 3 QBs that have a real chance to crack 5000 yards, and 7 more who will finish anywhere between 4000-4999 yards (Eli has an outside shot at 5000). Remember when 4000+ yard seasons were a big deal?

10 years ago, 241 yds per game would been impressive...that's good for 3,856 yards. But the game has clearly changed. Flacco right now is pretty average at best.

No offense ColRO:

2577 yards/10 games: 257.7 Yards per game, or roughly 260.

We are a ball control offense, which limits Flacco to an extent. When he throws he throws well 4 games 300+ yards.

Where are you getting your numbers from? According to ESPN's game log he's played in all 12 games:

http://espn.go.com/n...1252/joe-flacco

And in those 12 games he's passed for 2895 yards. 241 YPG.

His numbers are definitely not pretty, but the most important thing is that his team wins, and two of his best games came against the Steelers.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

He said originally 'other than' the last two games, meaning that was his average the first ten.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Incredibly true. At the same time, I feel sorry for him. Once he retires his going to live the rest of his life in agony.

I have never seen any QB get beat up like he does and he keeps coming back for more. He is the Rocky of QB's I hate him, but totally respect his persistence.

Favre took a similar type beating over his years too, from all accounts he seems to be ok now though....I guess ask him again in 5 years, but still....that will to win is unreal....maybe Ben's just got those genes where he heals well too....or he could just be too stupid to know when to lie down....either way it's something to behold.....

Wow. I cannot stomach watching Devin McCourty anymore. This guy finds whole new levels of suckdom every week. Toasted for a 51-yard completion, a pass interference penalty on a 3rd-and-18 toasted again in the end zone where his man blew completely by him...fvck you Devin!

Bill Belichick with his trademark "duuuuuuhhhhhhh" look yet again as the 'Skins take a 17-14 lead. Please hire a defensive coordinator Bill...your ego is wasting Brady's prime.

Gotta be tough being Brady this season...always having to make up for your head coach having his head up his ass. Thank God Brady does his job, because BB sure hasn't been doing his.

And in a change of pace, McCourty is burned AGAIN. Rex really should just throw on him on every down. Every single one.

Skins moving down the field again. Great gameplanning BB. Keep up the awesome work.
