^Raiders, Chiefs, Titans all might be in the mix for some new bodies at the QB position. Of course Smith will get killed behind those lines but the money should be good.

I could see the Eagles as interested as well, depending on how that feel about Nick Foles.

What if Smith went to Cleveland, where the rookie starter is just as hold as he is?

Wow, Drew Brees. Just wow.

Well, I was hoping to secure the first round bye in my fantasy football league, but after a shitshow like that one, looks like I'll need a stellar effort from the rest of my team. Luckily, I've already clinched a playoff spot, but wow. Just wow.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

It might be a bit soon to be calling the rest of the season for Kaepernick. He could very well crash and burn in the next few weeks. As a Niners fan (and who has been oft-frustrated by Smith's more timid game) I certainly hope he doesn't, but Smith has proven to be solid (if not impressive) enough that they may think twice if Kaepernick struggles in the next game or two.

^This is the one year where the playoff simulator is mostly irrelevant.

The AFC is basically set other than the final wild card, which I assume will be Pittsburgh if Roethlisberger comes back anytime soon. (New England, Baltimore, Houston, and Denver are pretty much sure fire bets.)

The NFC is a bit muddier, but you can pretty much lock in Atlanta, Chicago, and San Fran. I'd hedge my bets on the Giants and Green Bay, and then a drunken cat fight between Dallas, Washington, Seattle, and Tampa for the last spot.

KCPD confirms that Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend and then killed himself at the team practice facility -- in front of coaches and teammates.

Cancel that game, NFL. C'mon.

Unreal. Yes that game should be cancelled.

I played with the simulator a bit, and I noticed something that none of the commentators seem to be pointing out. Everyone has New England locked into the #2 seed, but if Houston beats them they potentially drop to #3 or even #4 based on how Denver and Baltimore play out. That's based on a single loss, btw.

Feel sad that their 3 month old baby will never know his/her parents, other that this tragic footnote in history.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Holy crap. I hate that my first thought, when the story first broke, was "I hope it wasn't one of the former UT players on the team." This is incredibly tragic. I also didn't know there was a 3 month old left behind in the wake of all this. Yeah, how in the hell can there possibly be a game tomorrow? How can anyone in the KC franchise possibly be ready to carry on? And their season was already miserable just from a win/loss standpoint....

Tragic thing. All reports are saying that the game WILL be played tomorrow. I've no idea how that's even conceivable considering the coach and players who saw Belcher commit suicide. I mean, I think you'd need more than a day or so to get over that. I'm sure postponing the game would mess a lot of things up in scheduling and such but, come on, these are dire circumstances. I think it calls for it.

They're certainly strange circumstances that make it awkward to force players to play in what will amount to an utterly meaningless game. But I'm not sure if there's a better alternative. Maybe they'd prefer the distraction, I don't know.

Very unfortunate what's happened.... you can't help but wonder what would drive someone to do somethign like that.

As for the game, the decision to move forward was actually the Chiefs' call. According to Yahoo, Crennel and the team captains discussed it and decided to go ahead with the game.
