    Rams are looking good today, especially on defense. If the NFL were the WWE, the commissioner would intervene to put them in the playoffs.

    They're up 38-3. I don't think Brady Quinn is going to lead a comeback.

    Peterson is knocking on the door of Eric Dickerson's record. Probably not going to make it but he's already pretty close.

    Where's the defence in this Packers-Vikings game?

    Yeah it's actually a pretty good time for it, seeing as the Vikings need to run some clock

    EDIT: actually, I thought there was 4 minutes left but there's only 3. That changes things a bit.

    Yeah I realize that. I was thinking there was 4 minutes left and they needed to take some time off the clock and get into fg range, which would mean running the ball. But at 3 minutes they won't be running as much.

    Well, plenty of running. 9 yards short. :(

    Oh well, I'm guessing he wanted a win more than the record.

    I'm guessing the record would have mattered more than the honour of getting the crap kicked out of them in GB next week.

    Patriots move up to 2nd seed in AFC. Thanks Colts. This works out perfectly for the Patriots. 1 week off to rest a bunch of banged up players then a home game. Hope it comes down to Broncos/Patrioys for AFC Championship game.

    Adrian P should get MVP and comeback player of the year. Wow, what a season!

    meh... the 3 seed might have the easier path... plus 1st round bye in the playoffs is often a bad thing.

    The bye does make me nervous.

    the first round bye is a lot of the times bad for teams that are offensive oriented. last year's Packers are a prime example.... and well the pats and broncos as well this year.

    i do respect the Patriots tremendously, but as a Patriots detractor i would like it very much if they actually played in a real NFL division with real NFL teams as direct comp

    They play the schedule each year just like every other team in the NFL. The Patriots have done something for 10-11 years now that no one else has been able to do. That's play at a constant high level, for 10-11 years. During that time sometimes the AFC has been better and sometimes the NFC has had better teams. What they have done is remarkable and might never be done again in the NFL. With salary caps, coaching changes, players moving around due to free agency etc etc. Amazing run that anyone that follows the NFL would agree is remarkable. Houston, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Denver and San Diego for the most part have been pretty good over the last few years so I think they have payed decent teams. NFC has good teams and shitty teams as well. Give credit where credit is due. Enjoy the play-offs, I know I will regardless of who gets to the SB. Its an honor to watch this team week in and week out. I could have been raised a jet/Bucs/Panthers fan and been miserable.
