Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

True. Football players sign on knowing full well that the game is violent and brutal. They do not sign up for it to be open season in between plays like the Packers player that got kicked in the head or him trying to rip Delhomme's head off. I like football and I have no problem saying that Suh's is a dirty player. I don't think that is hypocritical.

Suh is just another Richie Incognito. He can kiss my ass. They have no place in the NFL.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The Packers sure looked ugly on Thanksgiving. Shows just how one-dimensional they are: Without Rogers, they can't do a damned thing on offense. And with Dom Capers as their defensive coordinator, they need to score plenty to win.

Pretty stupid of me to pick up Matt Flynn in fantasy- I would have been better just leaving the QB position blank.

At least with the flex scheduling, the Packers game next week was moved to the early time and they don't have to worry about embarrassing themselves on national TV again.

BTW, I don't really care either way about the Steelers-Ravens game, but that was a stupid penalty (the way it exists not the fact that it was called).

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Romo played with the flu yesterday. That must have felt great. I was wondering why he looked so out of it in the press conference.

My Texans are now officially the worst team in the league.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Don't worry, Antonio Smith says it's not that you suck, it's that the Patriots cheated:

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10...gland-patriots

I guess overcoming vanilla schemes is cheating, now? Even if it was brand new and a crazy scheme, he knows that once you show it, the other team is allowed to respond/adjust, no? Not sure what HIS team does during halftime, but pretty sure the Patriots attempt to make those adjustments at halftime when things aren't working... Then again, he's 2-10 this season, so maybe they just eat orange slices and take a break.

Someone should get fired for that down marker mistake last night. Not that it cost Washington the game, but because it's inexcusable.

Yep, and the excuse for why they didn't do anything is even worse...

I'm still flabbergasted over Chicago's decision to attempt a 47-yard field goal on 2nd down.

Antonio Smith is a jerk for overreacting to the media like that. The Pats beat us because they made good adjustments for the 2nd half, the Texans didn't on their defense. The Texans offense put on a good show the 2nd half, the defense didn't so we lost. It's as simple as Brady and the Pats doing what they do best.

Most of the Houston fans can see Smith was just being a sore loser. I can't wait for Kubiak to be fired.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The Saints and Seahawks are so ridiculously good when playing at home but on the road they can look down right pedestrian.
