    I haven't figured out how to link videos on the new mobile layout. Just google video Suh, it should be the first thing that comes up.

    Are the Falcons the worst 11-1 team in NFL history? I saw nothing last night that indicated they are capable of making a deep playoff run, much less win the Super Bowl.

    Suh is definitely the dirtiest player in the NFL. I still think it's pretty hilarious though...
    If I was a Texans fan I'd definitely feel diferently

    If you have any faith in the decency of humanity, don't read the comments on the story at ESPN, because you will lose quite a bit of that faith. (Not sure if they've edited them, but right after the news came out it was pretty awful in there.)

    I'm surprised the NFL is still making the Chiefs play today.

    My understanding was that the Chiefs took the initiative, telling the NFL they wanted to play the game.

    Realistically, there was no alternative except playing the game tomorrow and having two MNF games. How much of a difference is a day going to make? They certainly couldn't not play the game.

    Reading comments on ESPN stories will make you lose your faith in humanity in general.

    The Redskins played after the murder of Sean Taylor, which IMO was a much greater tragedy than Belcher's suicide. If Romeo Crennel is emotionally capable of coaching the game, the Chiefs should go ahead and play.

    what a horrible story.

    this does not surprise me in the least. it also nauseates me. do you think you could coach or play in a football game so soon after seeing a friend/teammate blow their brains out? i certainly could not.

    i also dont like when players play on the day of/after losing a parent. ffs, be with your family. i know the standard line is, "i know its what he/she would want me to do. im doing it for them...." but it still seems absurd to me. yes, you are a manly man, we get it. take the day off and be with your family. no one will think less of you. i mean, everyone has the right to grieve in their own way, but it seems awfully callous to me. ymmv.

    would it be impossible to push it off til midweek? a few days can make a big difference.

    My take on that is that people grieve in very different ways, so I'm very hesitant to judge. I can't imagine being in Romeo Crennel's shoes, though. I have no idea how I'd respond to that.

    No. Their bodies won't have enough time to recover for the next week's game. This is why you'll never see a team play a MNF and then a Thursday night in the same week. Pushing the game to Wed or Thurs would give the team a serious disadvantage for the next week's game.

    Rams and 49ers are both undefeated against their division this year. Looks like a case of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object. But the Rams are at home, celebrating their 75th anniversary, and wearing their royal blue and yellow throwbacks. I'm gonna go out on a limb and predict a Rams victory today.

    yes, i understand that. and i am probably just imaging what it would be like for someone who would grieve like i would. its just odd to me. im sure to others, its not odd at all.


    the whole thing is just a damn shame. there is really is no good option. best of luck to all involved. :(
