Who woulda thought he would make that rookie mistake in OT?  If anyone goes under the bus,  he join them. Its a team game,  I get it,  but I was shocked that he attempted that throw at that time.

Yeah, he was OK getting more than 1/53 of the salaries, so I'm OK with him getting more than 1/53 of the blame.

Our players get paid in happy meals. Making what those players make, I will take all the blame you want. Those guys know better. Kids are learning the game from us. We are on a little different stage. You're good enough for a payday, you are good enough to take heat for a bonehead play that you got paid to make.

I think i'm the only one on the board that had Atlanta.  27-20....

A lot of times, people get caught up in the hype.... Seatle is an awful road team every year.  Atlanta is a great road team every year.  This is no surprise to me...

  At this rate,  you will be way off on the score. :) Still a half to go.

Number one reason the Raiders are so average.... seriously....how do you concentrate on your job with all that jiggling?

I think they said Manning is 8-11 now in the playoffs and has been in the playoffs 12 times. So however that adds up. 

Someone around here looked it up and like 8 times (I'm including yesterday) he lost in their first game of the playoffs.

And notice I never advanced anyone else over Manning.  In fact, I commiserated in that, "team game" or not, Brady hasn't gotten it done in years either.  There are rumblings around here over it - Brady has been subpar in the playoffs since they last won it in 2004.  Both Giants games were there for the taking - one QB reached out and took it, one did not.

Intellectually, of course I understand that there are other players who had chances to make plays at the end of both of those games to seal them, and did not.  But the fact is, if Brady is in the conversation for GOAT, then he's got to make those plays when his teammates do not.

Everyone that picked the Packers....

I want to hear you say:  Colin Kaepernick is the greatest player who ever lived.

Cool...hope you get some good info from it.

At the end of the day...NFL fans like us can only be thankful...our teams have won some SB's lost some SB's and been in the playoffs enough over the long haul to keep us happy.

Flash in the Pan right now...give him another year or two. The kid can certainly play.

Well, he's been flashing every game so far.  Strongest arm in the league (statistical fact).  Mixed w/ incredible speed & solid accuracy.  Oh, and he's freaking HUGE!

I think he'll be around a while...

1st round pick in fantasy drafts next year?
