    I hope Baltimore losses so Pittsburgh can sit on top of the AFC North again. It's going to be an interesting year for the division.

    Also, did anyone watch the Carolina-Tennessee game?

    Bears are looking great again guys.

    How can neither the coach nor quaterback scream/yell at everyone to "don't fucking go out of bounds" when you have the ball, 1st and 10, 7pt lead, and just over 2min left in the game?

    Marion Barber, you are an idiot. But, the coach and quaterback are even bigger idiots for not helping manage you LOL.

    Tebow looked great though. Everyone was saying he waited until the 4th quarter to show up, but actually his recievers dropped a few near perfect passes in the first half that would have shut everyone up about his early game ineffectiveness.

    rock on christian soilder (huhuh, huhuh)

    Did anyone catch the Giants/Cowboys game last weekend? I was so glad to see the Cowboys lose and that final last minute kick was awesome. The Giants called a timeout just before the kick, the kick was good, but didn't count. The second kick, which was down to, I believe, 1 second was blocked lol.

    It's always a good day when the Cowboys lose.

    I don't understand why the media is making such a big deal out of Tebow. Why do they act like he is God's gift to football? Nor do I understand why the networks are squabbling over him.

    i don't really get it either

    i think its mostly due to his mediocre throwing mechanics and his ability to rush more than he passes

    I'm really rooting for him to succeed over the long haul because I like that style offense.

    Unfortunately for him and bronco fans, he just won't make it for that long putting his head down and trying to be a running back.

    He is a big horse and all, but he lacks the physical attributes (mainly quickness) that it takes to run the ball at the NFL level without suffering.

    Tebow is a good story and everything (love it when the football pundits have to eat crow), but I don't know how long it will last. Kind of like when teams started dicking-around with the Wildcat offense a couple years ago- sure, defenses had no idea what to do about it for a handful of games, but once defenses were able to establish contain and make the offense pass the ball (where the Wildcat was kind of covering-up a substandard passing game), it all fell apart quickly. I see the same thing happening here with Tebow. Establish an early lead, make Tebow pass the ball... mystery solved.

    Having just moved to Colorado a couple months ago, all I hear and see is Tebow, Tebow, Tebow... The Broncos are doing pretty well. It's strange to come from the East coast and not be a big fan of the teams in this region. I definitely have to watch what I say if I catch any of the games at a bar lol. The Giants/Cowboys game was a perfect example. I wasn't sure how people would respond when I'm rooting on an East coast team, rather than the Cowboys or Broncos.

    also consider that the AFC West is so devastated with defensive line injuries that the option QB run is made possible simply because there are not enough good front 4 dl guys left!

    I usually like watching games involving either of these teams because it gives me someone to root against :lol:.
    Since they both can't lose the same game, I'm hoping for a tie :evil:.

    Pretty pissed I missed the Cowboys/Eagles games! Xmas threw me off. I kept thinking the game was Sunday or Monday night, not Saturday, since Saturday's college games. I saw the score this morning through my USA Today app and wasn't surprised how it turned out.

    Was it a typical Eagles screw up?
