San Diego? Hell no. Any AFC team who gets in the way of Peyton this year is on my shit list. Especially SmoothieX's Patriots. Carolina I wouldn't mind being the Broncos' opponent in Super Bowl XLVIII.

LOL at Colston. What an idiot.
I wasn't actually rooting for the Saints, but that was one bonehead play. WTF? Just go out of bounds! I mean, all that the Saints needed to go their way probably still would not have, but at least they would still have a shot at it.

Oh, and who else thinks the 10-second run-off rule is both stupid and a chicken shit way to end a game, especially one that was so closely contested?

I'm jumping on the Seattle bandwagon for the rest of the playoffs, I've got relatives up there.
I'm totally on the bandwagon. Such a tremendously impressive team. The Patriots unfortunately also looked really strong yesterday, but the Seahawks have been, from everything I've seen this year, undoubtedly the most consistently dominant team.

And my mancrush on Lynch almost equals that on Cam Newton.

I've read some great analysis on his postseason losses, and while he's made mistakes (what QB hasn't? No one is perfect) he's largely the reason those teams were even in position to win in the first place. The supporting cast doesn't do him any favors in the post season (Rahim Moore, anyone?).

This actually brings up something I was thinking about the other day. Tom Brady begins his career with 3 Super Bowl wins in his first four seasons, and has gone 9 seasons since without a Super Bowl win. He's largely riding on the coattails of his past success. If Petyon Manning somehow won this season and then again in one of the next two seasons, would that have an impact on the legacy of both quarterbacks? Its a stretch for that to happen, and dominos have to fall in place, but what's more important: winning one at the beginning of your career when you're just a piece of the puzzle, or winning one at the end when the team is built around you?

You make a point, let's hope it never hits 10.

Shit, looks like the 49ers are winning.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Hahaha the guys on CBS NFL Today talking about quarterbacks, and saying that unless you win a Super Bowl you're not allowed in the conversation. Meanwhile, Marino sitting over there with a tear in his eye...

EDIT: To his credit, he tried to get Boomer Esiason to help him out. Boomer to Collinsworth's broken up pass in Super Bowl XXIII would have given Boomer a Super Bowl win that season instead of Montana.

That was some high quality trolling from Kaepernick today. Busting out Superman before kissing the tattoos. The Panthers looked good but seemed more interested in running their mouths than winning four quarters.

I'm betting you're talking about this article/ I thought it was a very interesting read as well. That is about as crappy luck as any team or QB can have on a regular basis.

I'm extremely happy about Denver moving on! When the the Chargers managed to pull it back to within one score, I was having flashbacks to the Baltimore game and was confident Denver would find a way to lose it. Glad they held on.

I hope Quentin Jammer doesn't play next week against the Patriots. He has done nothing but get his ass beaten like a fucking pinata all season. Everytime he's in, he gets burned badly and regularly. Brady will not wait until the fourth quarter to start victimizing him.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Niners are going back to Seattle. It seemed like the inevitable match up since week 2 of the season, and it's appropriate that it's these two teams in the championship game. It's going to be hard, it's going to be loud, but I hope the 49ers find a way to get it done.

Go Niners.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Pretty good set of playoff games so far but I'm really excited about the final matchups we ended up with. You couldn't ask for better storylines going into the conference championships.

Neither could the NFL. I bet they are absolutely loving this, and any two teams in the Super Bowl would be a great match up.

I, for one, have no desire to endure a week of "Brady v. Manning IV" blabbering leading up to the game (it's already all over my Twitter stream), and the on-air masturbation that will accompany it. Jim Nantz is actually going to have an orgasm live on national television, mark my words.

Given that every Seahawks fan I've ever met is an insufferable shitlord, I'm tired of seeing the 49ers in the NFCCG, the Patriots are the Patriots ... fuck it, go Broncos, Champ Bailey deserves a ring. (They're going to get demolished next week.)

Well shit. I'm...sorry? I'm hoping for a Broncos run as well though.
