Thanks for putting this up Claw. Should have done earlier as we have Thursday night football and the games (except two) are on SATURDAY this week.

Thursday night has Houston at Indy. Well. Indy is BAD but are they STUPID also? A win here would really screw things up for them.

On to Saturday and I know inn the early games the Jets vs Giants matchup is not just a "Battle Of New York" but one team's season will take a turn for the worst here. Philly at Dallas could be huge (if the Jets win Philly is still alive) or an ass-kicking (Dallas needs game, Philly with nothing to play for)

The Chargers season is on the line at Detroit. Can Denver hold on to the AFC West lead? They have an early game at Buffalo. Monday night is Atlanta at New Orleans.


Houston (6) at Indy
Oakland at Kansas City (2.5)
Denver (3) at Buffalo
Jacksonville at Tennesee (7.5)
Arizona at Cincy (4.5)
Miami at New England (9.5)
Cleveland at Baltimore (13)
NY Giants at NY Jets (3)
Minnesota at Washington (6.5)
Carolina at Tampa Bay (7.5)
St Louis at Pittsburgh (16)
San Diego at Detroit (2.5)
San Francisco (2.5) at Seattle
Philly at Dallas (3)
Chicago at Green Bay (13)
Atlanta at New Orleans (6.5)

Right now the AFC west is a mess.

If Denver wins vs Buffalo, they win the division. If they lose, then they need to beat KC their last game.

SD needs to win both of their games and have Denver lose at least one of theirs.

Oakland needs to win both of their games vs KC and SD and have Denver lose at least one.

KC could theoretically win the division if they beat Oakland and Denver, and Denver loses to Buffalo this weekend.

The Giants/Jets game is one that has a lot of meaning for two teams that are undeserving so far of a playoff spot. I'm wishful that the GMen go on a 2007 run, but they lack the leadership.
The Jets are just overrated period.

Boldin to have knee surgery, miss 2 games

2 hours, 31 minutes ago

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP)—Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin is having surgery on his knee Thursday to deal with slightly torn cartilage.

Coach John Harbaugh said the veteran wideout will miss the final two weeks of the regular season and be able to return for the playoffs. The Ravens will not reveal which knee is injured.

Lee Evans is slated to start with Boldin sidelined.

Dr. James Andrews is performing the procedure in Birmingham, Ala.

The 31-year-old Boldin has 57 receptions for 887 yards and three touchdowns this year.

“He’s got a slight tear in his meniscus. It flapped up on him, I think it was Tuesday night after the walkthrough,” coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s going to have to get it repaired. It’s two weeks and he’ll be back for the playoffs, whatever round we happen to play in. It will be a little bit tighter if we have to play in the first round.”

Harbaugh said former Pro Bowl placekicker Shayne Graham will kick in place of Billy Cundiff on Saturday against the Cleveland Browns.

Cundiff has been struggling with a left calf injury and has missed three of his five field goal attempts in December.

“We anticipate Shayne being the kicker this week,” Harbaugh said. “Billy’s dealing with his calf and Shayne’s been practicing. Even if Billy was ready to go, and I still think he’s nursing that thing back and he’s not 100 percent, Shayne got the week of practice in, so we’ll go with Shayne.”

Just to show I'm not a homer who only complains when it happens to his team, that "helmet to helmet" flag on the Colts was horseshit. The QB went low and the defensive player had no way to avoid contact with the helmet.

Absolutely. Looks like the NFL doesn't want Luck to go to the Colts and have an ugly scene with Peyton having a public hissy fit.

Santonio Holmes, who sucks balls, is talking shit about torching the Giants and Corey Webster.
The Giants plan on matching Webster up with Plax, the only receiver they fear.
Holmes is another Jets douchebag. He and Rolle (resident Giants douche)should go jerk each other off.

Ben Roethlisberger will be resting his sprained ankle through the weekend as the Steelers named Charlie Batch their starting quarterback for Saturday's game against the St. Louis Rams, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting.

Roethlisberger was nursing a high right ankle sprain when he passed for 330 yards in a 20-3 loss to San Francisco on Monday night., but also turned over the ball four times.

He said Wednesday that he came out of the game better than he anticipated, but offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said the long cross-country plane trip back home aggravated swelling in the ankle.

If they suck for Luck next week, they'll get the #1 pick.

 

The suddenly surging Indianapolis Colts are guaranteed to have the No. 1 overall draft pick should they lose their final game of the season.Based on needs and the current Big Board prospect rankings, what kind of decisions would teams be facing in the draft started today? Mel Kiper breaks it down a day after Matt Barkley said he's staying at USC. Story



The Colts started 0-13 but their second straight win was a stunner, 19-16 over the AFC South champion Houston Texans on Thursday.

Still, if Indianapolis loses at Jacksonville on Jan. 1, they would finish with at least a share of the league's worst record at 2-14 and have the top pick in the draft by virtue of strength-of-schedule tiebreaker.

Both St. Louis and Minnesota are 2-12 heading into Saturday's games, but the Colts' .547 strength-of-schedule percentage is going to only worsen after playing the 4-10 Jaguars. The Rams' percentage is .587 and the Vikings' .587.

If the Colts beat Jacksonville and the Rams and Vikings lose their last two, the Colts would not get the top pick. If the Colts beat the Jags and St. Louis and Minnesota also finish 3-13, the No. 1 pick would go to the Colts.

Minnesota has games left at Washington (5-9) and at home against Chicago (7-7), and St. Louis finishes at Pittsburgh (10-4) and at home against San Francisco (11-3).

They were laughing on local radio here, saying the Colts are so dumb, theyll probably win their last 2 games, so they dont have to draft Luck, and theyll bring back Manning & all will be right. Said that Luck is a franchise type qb, and the Colts will pretty much gift wrap him to someone else. Then, in about 2-3 yrs, when the COLTS will need a qb, will be bitching about it. It was funny stuff.

Going with the favorites except for Carolina at Tampa Bay (7.5) &
Oakland at Kansas City (2.5)

I think Carolina will win by 10 & Oakland will win by 5.

The following games which I think the favorites will win but don't cover.

Miami at New England (9.5)..........Pats by only 3
St Louis at Pittsburgh (16)............Pitts by only 8
Chicago at Green Bay (13)............GB by only 5

They are still the front runner for the top pick as they only have one game left and hold all the tie-breakers. Only way they lose top pick is if they win next week and have either Vikes or Rams lose the last 2 in a row.

sadly the last line is very possible, considering Jacksonville is Indy's opponent and I doubt Minn will beat Washington(it is possible if bad Rex shows up though), and I don't see the Rams beating Pittsburgh(even without Ben starting) this week.  But I can see Chicago beating Minn in week 17(but with Minn the way they have played, I cant see em winning even with Haney at QB), but don't see the Rams beating the 49ers considering they may still be in the hunt for the #2 seed unless NO loses

Maybe the controversy has made them shy away from wanting to have to make the Luck decision. If they don't have the top pick, it takes the choice out of their hands.

Carolina up 17-10 over Tampa Bay and fixing to score again. Newton threw a 91 yard TD pass earlier, longest in Panthers history. This year he's set the record for most rushing TD's by a QB EVER, most yards passing by a rookie QB, broke that record earlier today, previously held by Manning, and he's also set several Panthers records, one being that TD pass today. He has to be a lock for rookie of the year, don't see how anyone else can claim it..

They showed the replay during the  Pats/Fins game... it doesn't look good for his knee IMO.

There is a very loud "Tebow Sucks" chant going on at the Bills/Broncos game. The first time I heard it was when the Bills had 2 injured players on the ground. Real classy Bill's fan.

During the Fox pregame show, Bradshaw said he was rooting for the Giants and called Ryan something like "Big mouthed fat guy" as well.

I can't stand Ryan at all, but I don't recall this much of  backlash against one coach recently over the airwaves that wasn't said by the fans

Rex Ryan talks smack like he has won multiple Super Bowls, but he hasn't won squat.
I get he talks trash... I just believe if you say it, you should be able to back up your words, which he can't.

My main point is I just can't recall this much venom directed back towards a coach is all... Then again, there really haven't been many opinionated coaches in the NFL lately who talk as much as he does... it's usually the players who talk too much.

Nothing beats Christmas like a game at Lambeau Field watching the Bears get eliminated officially from the playoffs

I don't know why, but watching a football game at Lambeau to me, is the best way to enjoy football, no matter what the temperature is(last night it was mid 30's), there is just something that doesn't exist elsewhere there.

What was simply more amazing about the fact he broke it, is the fact he has 1 more game to play, and can put it further out of reach next week if he so chooses.

Sadly,with todays version of football,as policed by Roger no contact alowed Goodell one expect records that have stood for decades to fall allmost every single year.

Defenses are not allowed to play defense anymore in Goodys league.

I don't think anyone is gonna break the record after this year for awhile, because passing teams do not tend to do very well.

They were discussing this on the NFL Network last night in fact, and pointed out how Marino set it in his second season, and never passed again for 5000 yds again in his entire career.  They never got back to the Superbowl either, because Miami never really developed a run game to counter Marino's passing skills.

If Carolina were to get a decent run game going(not involving the QB) to offset Newtons pass game, Carolina will be a threat for years to come.  New England was the best when Brady was not 80%+ of the offense.  Indianapolis won its only superbowl on the run game along with Peyton.  Brees won the Superbowl with a decent run game as well.  Green Bay last year won with a decent run game, along with Rodgers. 

A totally pass reliant team will not do very well in the NFL for very long, because the pass routes will be figured out(like what New Orleans did with Indianapolis) and teams will jump on routes easier.

I have a feeling Brees record will stand for at least a decade before its broken again, and it will be a fluke season much like this one where it will happen again, because usually when teams are pass happy, they are usually behind for most of the game, or they simply do not have a decent run game established

Brees is gonna have to play next week to keep the record. Brady is not too far behind and may pass him if Brees sits.

Nah, he's going to play and keep his lead. They are still trying to beat out the Niners and Brady is 200 yards behind him.

Like they showed last night, there is a bigger gap between Brees avg yards per game this year than there was between Marino and the rest of the league avg when he set the record. Yeah, the records are being influenced by the rules, but Brees is still throwing that much better than the rest of the league (almost 100 yards per game over league average - his completion percentage is 2-3 points over Rodgers and way beyond everyone else as well).

So yeah, the passing stats are heavily influenced by rules changes, however Brees is still outperforming the rest of the league at a pretty high clip, and this is a season with several big time seasons and rookies throwing for 4,000 yards, etc.

Brees aint gonna sit.  They have a chance at the #2 seed like Bayou stated and the fact that Payton went for the record last night shows that the team will try to keep the record for him as well. 

I can see a shitload of short route passes for New Orleans and hoping for yards after the catch to pad his stats Sunday

... and now all kinds of Bullshit is being said that the Saints and Brees were unsportsmanlike in "running up the numbers"

Gimmie a freaking break... it's the defenses job to stop a team in the pros, not the offenses job to stop playing.

Amen. If I were a pro football player, I'd be embarrassed if my coaches or teammates whined about such crap. Even if they weren't going for a record, stop them if you don't want them to score. But as it is, they are trying to make history. Again, if you don't want history made at your expense, stop them. That's the name of the game.

this quote from the article sums it up the best

“No man, it’s our job to stop them,” said linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who missed New Orleans running back Darren Sproles on the record-setting play. “I can’t say I’m upset by them running up the score or anything like that when I had a chance to make a play.”

If it were Matt Ryan going for the record, doubt the Falcons would be whining. You're spot on btw.

Niners reportedly releasing Braylon Edwards.

He won't be missed but its kinda surprising since WR Josh Morgan has a broken leg, wr Ted Ginn a sprain ankle, wr Kyle Williams a concussion, and TE/WR Delanie Walker has a broken jaw.

What was simply more amazing about the fact he broke it, is the fact he has 1 more game to play, and can put it further out of reach next week if he so chooses.


Marino could say hhad less passing attempts and less completions than Brees.

The NFL wants the game turned into a passing game, so it would not be surprising to see this record challenged frequently.  Look at the rules being created and enforced.  Less defense....more scoring.

That is true, but Brees can also turn around and ask Marino how many 5000K seasons he had as well.

The same applies to the NFL record for most TD's thrown in a year.  The record is 50 set by Brady in 2007.  If someone comes along and breaks it, do you think the analysts are going to sit there and say "well Brady did it in this many pass attempts while so and so did it in more, so an * should be placed".  No you won't, they will simply erase Brady's name and insert the new name.

Just like they will do when a QB finally breaks the most TD's in a game record of 7(held by 4 people).  No one is going to say "well Blanda set it by throwing only x amount of times while so and so set it with y amount"

Agree on this.  Teams throw more now.  The game evolves.  In the season Marino set the records, there were still several powerful programs in college football running the wishbone.
