    Yep. Reed is gone from the Texans. He'll probably show back up in a few weeks in a Patriot uniform and kick our ass. :lol:

    a real possibility. Know Belichick is a fan, and if he comes in on short money, why not? Pats have had injuries at Safety recently, so pretty obvious spot open...

    Three teams in one season for a QB has got to be a record of some sort. I suspect it's happened for other positions, but not one as complex as QB where you can get thrown into an offense you're not familiar with and pull a Josh Freeman.

    Actually, Brady Quinn's on this third team this season too, although one was only preseason.

    Show's how hard up this league is for the position since they can't even find 32 worthy starting QBs.

    Definitely has happened at WR; Randy Moss went from New England to Minnesota to Tennessee in 2010.

    5 days and no posts, is this season that boring? :confused:

    I realize the Ravens are having a crappy season, but that's no reason to lose interest in the NFL. ;)

    I'm being forced to watch the Eagles/Redskins game because I live in southeastern Virginia. It is 24 to 0 in the middle of the third quarter and I'm praying they switch over to a more competitive game. That Lions/Steelers game looks good maybe I'll get that one.

    It was pretty scary for about a 45-minute stretch, yes.

    While Chicago and the immediate vicinity survived major damage, some other areas of Illinois were not so lucky. Washington, IL (about 150 miles southwest of Chicago, near Peoria), a town of about 10,000 people, was wrecked:

    Really? No, I'm still stuck with the Skins/Eagles in the fourth quarter. Griffin can't even complete screen passes anymore. I'm ready to stab my eyes out. Where do you live?

    Do you want to update your thoughts on whether that game was boring?

    Jesus, what happened to the Eagles' defense?

    Wow, the Texans really suck big time. They fell apart this season at light speed. I don't understand how Kubiak still has a job.

    I guess. Griffin looked awful though. That game could have been different had he not been so dreadfully inaccurate. I'm a Cowboys fan so I was forced to root for the Skins today.

    What's the deal with these Coach T Toyota promos on SNF? The first two or three times it was a funny gag, but they just keep replaying the same ones every week. I thought the halftime "sponsored" ads from a few years ago where they did highlights from a pop warner game were cool, and those were new every week. Toyota really mailed it in this year, though.

    If I'm going to be advertised to during live events, at least give me something new to look at. This is why people fast forward through commercials on the DVR.

    That 49ers pissed me off today for four reasons:

    1) I'm starting to question Jim Harbaugh's decision making. What was he doing challenging that touchdown ruled incomplete in the second quarter with ONE TIME OUT LEFT? Doesn't he know the rule, that you must complete the process of the catch in order for it to count as a TD? Just ask Calvin Johnson, that has happened to him probably more than any other reciever in the NFL. Not only that, but you squandered your timeouts in the first quarter, you only had one left with 8 minutes, and you decide to challenge?

    2) I saw a game last week with the Saints and Brees looked to be sacked high and low and both times roughing the passer was called. You might as well stick a flag on the QB because you're apparently not allowed to hit him anymore. That protect Brees like there is no tomorrow in this league and it's frustrating as hell. That was a good tackle, even if it was forceful. The whole neck thing is just following Newton's laws of physics. Let the defenders play for crying out loud.

    3) I'm actually starting to find the 49ers boring. Kaepernick looks lost, the recievers are doing nothing, and the play calling leaves something to be desired. Where's the flash, the creativity. You have Kaepernick trying to act like Payton Manning (Thus why all the timeouts are used early) when he should act like Colin Kaepernick, and the play calling reminds me of some of the coordinators that the 49ers fired. You don't want to use the read option? Fine, game plan something else that is better than what they have been doing.

    4) That idiot 49er who tackled Sproles after he signaled fair catch really ticked me off. Ok, you didn't see it, but HE WAS GIVING HIMSELF UP. At that time of the game is not the time to have a freaking brain fart.

    I'm not even sure if the 49ers will make the playoffs now. They don't look like a playoff team, and the division is now far out of reach. With the Cards winning, Carolina keeping on winning, and the 49ers playing like ****, I think we can kiss Super Bowl hopes away. The game was close today, but it was still a joke.
