    I did enjoy Cam's comment later about how lucky he felt. Something about how God must have him on His fantasy team :laugh:

    Peterson appeal denied. He's officially done for 2014.

    Yet Ray Rice could play if someone picked him up? Weird.

    I haven't followed closely, but I think the Rice decision turned in part on what for want of a better term you could call procedural issues. Leaving aside the Grantland-esque conspiracy theories, the NFL created a messy record about what information was available to it and being considered when the initial suspension decision was made. I understand that was important in the arbitrator's decision. And timing-wise, because the Peterson thing came a bit later the groundswell of self-righteous outrage/ recognition of the scope of the problem/ PR concern was more developed.

    So happy for fellow AFC East team Buffalo Bills. All you Bills fans stand up.

    He is not cut out for the NFL. He would do better in Arena Football.

    You can tell how Joe Buck is trying to get the audience fired up about the 49ers/Seahawks game, but it's not really working the NFC game the people really want to see is Rams/Seahawks.

    This Seattle D is insane this game. So many loss downs for SF.

    NFC South champion will not have a winning record and will host a game against an opponent that may be 11-5. Maybe the NFL should consider reseeding the playoffs?

    ^ I agree with you, but the same thing happened when Seattle (7-9) hosted New Orleans (11-5) in 2010.

    Seattle won that game, btw. It was the "beast quake" game.

    Seattle and New England look like the class of the NFL right now. Denver on the next tier. Everybody else has a major weakness.

    Seattle's offense looks pretty suspect. Haven't scored 20 points in the last 3 games, I think.

    Edit: Scored 24 vs the Eagles.

    Last 5 games though:
