For what it's worth, I have no problem with Kaepernick's celebration bicep-kissing thing, and I think Sherman's interview owned bones and was funny as hell.

Kap's self-bicep-kissing isn't bad form either, is it?
Makes you wonder which of his other body parts he kisses behind closed doors.


IMHO the guy is into himself a little too much.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Belichick is trying to rival the Sherman/Crabtree feud with his own swipes at Welker for that pick play. That same pick play that they run in NE without apology. Hell they ran it themselves yesterday for that matter. Mike Pereira said the no call was correct but the league is probably going to have to take a closer look at how they deal with these in the future. I think they are somewhat dangerous but I don't think Welker was playing the role of an assassin yesterday.

He called it "one of the worst plays he has ever seen."

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Let's look at this logically for a second... there's no doubt that Welker was used in a pick/rub play. But the idea that he was used to take Talib out? Why would you use your midget who already has 2 concussions on the year as the human torpedo? If it's a malicious play with intent to take somebody out, you use somebody like big ol' Julius Thomas.

Well that and Welker didn't even hit him low. In fact if you watch the tape and weren't aware that Talib had sustained an injury, it would be tough to tell who got the worst of it.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The main problem for Seattle is going to be the same main problem New England had (IMHO): pass rush.

Manning had time to make sandwiches, send out some tweets, and read the daily paper back there. All day. His decision making is so quick and so precise, it's scary. I heard someone say (not sure if it's true) that Manning has yet to be even knocked down in the playoffs so far.

I think Denver's defense is good enough, and Seattle's offense suspect enough, that I have a hard time seeing the Seahawks outscoring the Broncos.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I think Denver wins a low scoring game. Something like 20-17. I think the defense will slow Peyton down but they are still going to get a couple of TD's and a FG or two. I just don't think Wilson will be able to match him without a monster effort from Lynch and some short field turnovers from Denver. The Seattle offense isn't great but they aren't going to kill themselves either. They pretty much just stood there last night and waited for SF to make the costly mistakes late.

Yep, that's right... no knock downs/sacks and he's only been hit once (or maybe only once each game, but no more than that).

I love Belichick's version of a hail mary: Throw a long, underthrown ball and stamp your feet for pass interference if the DB brushes against the intended receiver who didn't have a prayer of catching it anyway. Ball inside the one, four downs... He's one of the smartest coaches in the league.

Well I'm not going to go that far. There is obviously something between Welker and BB that has been festering for some time now. The Patriots lost that game because they couldn't run the ball, get Peyton off the field on third down and Brady missed some big plays down the field. I didn't see a lot of crying form NE, they just didn't execute.

A lot of bad blood between those two off the field, read somewhere today that Michael Crabtree tried picking a fight with him at a charity event last year.
