At least there was no fluke comeback (aided by the officials) this time for the Steelers... all is good.

Not too shabby NFL weekend. Giants loss (always a good day when that happens) Steelers loss, (any time an anti-football team reaches a demise is a good day) too bad the other two anti-football teams won in Indy and Ravens.

Last but not least, the Cowboys won. Maybe the head coaching job will become permanent eh Crash :uni: he's 4 and 2 now B )

Are you SERIOUS??? They just made Rex Grossman look like Michael Vick yesterday??? Yes they've gotten some turnovers to mask this , but the Cowboy defense has been PATHETIC under Ginger-Coach!!! And yes Dallas will win Saturday too against a more pathetic Cardinals team....I get the feeling Ginger's job might come down to the Eagles game (and if Jeff Fisher is available or not....)

Man was yesterday the most Bizarro-Day of football I can remember :blink:

Great but a bit scary. The last couple of games before this one had me thinking that this defense might be improving, but last night showed that this unit is still a bit shaky, Arrington's impressive pick-6 aside. 446 PF has a way of hiding that.

All they have to do to lock up the #1 is win one of their final two (@Buf, vs. Miami)...they can even drop both if the Jets lose one of their final two games. That's huge for the Pats, because they need the easiest and most restful path possible to reach the SB...they're not locks to get there by any stretch, but if they can get themselves two home games I give them a good shot to get there, in spite of their flaws on D.

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?

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.

Oh, absolutely.

Gotta give the Packers credit. They played pretty well on defense yesterday. The 71-yard return by the offensive lineman and the pick six were just huge plays for the Pats.

I give the Packers a lot of credit...their coach took an outside-the-box approach from the very first play and it almost paid off for his team. And he was bold with giving his QB a chance to make plays.

Yeah, thought the Pack D was pretty good...on one hand, you can argue that they only allowed 17 points (7 obviously were scored on Arrington's pick 6, and one of funniest runbacks ever on special teams set up other score...and the Packs' D almost stopped them). On the other, the Pats were pretty productive considering they held the ball for less than 20 minutes, and ran about half as many plays on offense as the Packers.

Good point.

I was surprised how well the Packers ran the ball. They seemed to do a good job keeping New England off-balance in general.

If the Pats manage to wrap up the #1 (chances are high that they will, though I can't say it's a 100% certainty...Buffalo is playing with confidence, and Miami has been good on the road...and both teams are playing with nothing to lose), I don't see them as a #1 that can't be beat...depending on who the opponent is, I can see them losing despite them having the home field and the extra week to prepare for their first opponent.

To be fair the defense looked like crap under Wade too...in fact to do believe the beating the Packers put on us ended his tenure...that's some pure hatred when you are calling him out on a part of the team that was already atrocious before he took over...

If they're promoting him to fix the team... isn't part of the job to fix the WHOLE team though?
I do like that the defense now actually tries for turnovers, but this team should be WAY better then it is... more so with this personnel.....not to mention letting Rex Grossman look like Phillip Rivers in the second half.....if you're gonna let Rex Grossman run wild on you.... time for a new strategy, this ain't Michael Vick who's doing it to EVERYONE (or Brady, etc)....even Peyton who did turn it over like mad threw for what 445?

(I will say to be fair slightly, that the Cowboys need a legit nose tackle and it's NOT Jay Ratliff)

if he gets the job then he'll have to fix the team...right now he's had to salvage the team so it wouldn't implode....but the rest I'll agree with...

I still think that Rat would be a great NT if the others around him weren't underachieving...I mean Olshansky really? how is he a threat?...Ware can only do so much and Spencer has done his disappearing act...but then again, this back up we have, Brent, I think is his name...is the prototypical NT and he's turning a lot of heads I hear....would be interesting to see what we do with him and then maybe move Ratliff to end...

To me the biggest damnation on Ratliff was watching the Eagles just pound it right down his face to ice that game 2 games ago.... the only reason you knew he was there was seeing his 90 getting blown off the ball.... maybe a better NT puts him at DE and he can be more effective again

so now Favre's playing an AP's out??? WTF :blink:
