    Football can sometimes be the very best medicine. :)

    I once had the pleasure of watching a University of Tennessee football game from both my hospital bed and from outside the hall window (the stadium being so nearby UT Medical Center).

    The very words I had ready to use in case it went the other way.

    Wow, and I thought Dallas's defense was bad before! What a comeback by the Packers!

    While Romo will undoubtedly catch the blame for the pick my first complaint is the playcalling in the second half which effectively removed Demarco Murray from the game. Murray was averaging 7 1/2 yards a carry in the game. The defense also gave up five consecutive TD's on GB possessions. The pick wasn't really on Romo as Beasley stopped running on his rout letting the ball go unchallenged to the GB corner. Either way my patience with this team has hit a brick wall.

    When was the last time a punter had to go to the locker room due to a "dental injury"?

    Looks like there's a very good chance of this scenario coming to pass. If Dallas wins its game against Washington next Sunday afternoon, then Philly will go into the Sunday night game against Chicago knowing that whether or not they win will have no bearing on whether they make the playoffs, since their only path into the playoffs is to win the East, which they could then only do by beating Dallas in the season finale.

    So all they'd be playing for against Chicago is the possibility of being the #3 seed rather than the #4 seed, which might not even be much of a bonus depending on who their wild card opponents might be. In that case, there won't be much incentive for Philly to go all out in a game that doesn't mean very much for them. Kelly presumably won't hesitate to pull the starters if the game starts to get lopsided.

    Great. I was in the playoffs in two of my three fantasy football leagues this season, and it looks like I'm knocked out of both.

    In the first league, which I won last year, I'm going up against Jamaal Charles. He put up 62 pts. My stud? Jimmy Graham, who put up 4 pts. I'm currently down by about 60 with two players left, but seriously doubt they'll come anywhere close to 60 combined. Monster games (by rational standards) from Garcon and Deshaun Jackson nullified by Alex Smith's 5 TD "bombs" to Charles.

    In the second league, I was in first place all season until I had a late season slide due to some injuries, but still limped into the playoffs in 2nd place with a first round bye. Injuries to Adrian Peterson and a poor fantasy effort by almost every member of my team, including Peyton Manning, leave me going into tomorrow's game down 23 with only Reggie Bush left. Reggie might not even play, and if he does he's doubtful to get 23 pts.

    So, yay, all I needed to do was make the Super Bowl in ONE of these three leagues to make back my buy-in (don't even have to win it), and now I'm walking away from the season with zero.

    Lots of teams with opportunities this weekend, with nobody in the AFC really taking advantage. Denver falling opened the door for New England to take the first seed. They ended up falling to Miami. NE falling then opened the door for Cincinnati to move up to the second seed. They ended up blowing that opportunity as well. The only AFC team to really do themselves any favors this weekend was the Dolphins, and they're still waiting on Baltimore's results to see if their efforts did them any good.

    Is it to late for them to flex in another game? Either way, there are games that are more important for the playoffs than the Lions-Bears bearth.

    ^I don't think they can flex a matchup into a SNF game and then flex it right back out. If nothing else, it would put the networks in a bind because it could potentially cock up their schedules and their broadcasting crews.

    Well, it was a legal hit because it wasn't a defenseless receiver, but he didn't lead with his shoulder. He came pretty much head on, um, with his head.
