Cam Newton doing the Superman with his record is a treat as well. Weird things can happen in the playoffs, though. Can you see one of those teams winning a SB?fatandfast said:Also there was lots of big plays that involved officials. Some of those calls going the other way would have had New England up by another touchdown...or two. Overall good game.
The Saints need a drug test from the owner to the water boy. They are not mentally in the game at kick off and the fights and dozens of mistakes throughout the game make me really wonder. The NFC South is a total mess.
Scratch that. It could happen. It almost happened last night. Granted, the Packers were the superior team, but if there had been a few bounced balls the Falcons direction, they could have stole that game.Alpe d'Huez said:Both New Orleans and Carolina are dangerous at times. I'd even say that with Atlanta. Imagine them getting a home game against Dallas, or a struggling Arizona, playing mistake free, having a few balls bounce their way... I can definitely see that, can't you? Going to Green Bay or Seattle and winning? Highly unlikely.
Just waiting for me to pick them in Survival, where did you think? Boy, have I developed a talent for picking teams that by all measures should lose, and don't.Alpe d'Huez said:. Where was this Panther team all year?
While I've enjoyed watching the team progress, I'm not prepared to nominate Mr. Wilson for sainthood singularly. One particular joy has been watching he and Marshawn Lynch play sandlot football with the NFL.Alpe d'Huez said:Scratch that. It could happen. It almost happened last night.

In fact, this is how the Giants won not 1, but 2 Super Bowls. They were mediocre all season, played well enough in the playoffs, got the match-up's that suited them, and had a few balls bounce their way. So yes, I can see Atlanta winning the Super Bowl. Not likely, but it's possible.
I also want to nominate Russell Wilson for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. He's also carrying his team, for those who haven't noticed.
As ya all know I dont care about the games themselves anymore, I am still interested about the facts around the business.The Hitch said:News from Houston is that Clowney is out for this season and quite possibly the next one too
And the injury he has is one which many failed to return from, and those that did came back a lot weaker.
Um, Alpe - how can you have seven teams left?Alpe d'Huez said:Elimination Football®.[/B] I now have left:
NE, Indy, Denver, Phi, GB, Dal, Arizona.
I am now eliminating Dallas and Arizona. I too wish I had not eliminated Seattle. In the NFC I'm riding everything on Green Bay. In the AFC, I haven't made up my mind just yet.
For Survival Football™.
Indy, KC, Minn, Tenn, NYJ, Dal*, NYG, Wash*, St.L, Chi, Cin*, Det, Phi*, Buffalo, This week: San Francisco.
