I had to avoid all media outlets after the Bears loss. WAYYYYY too much stupidity from people! I have no idea why they left Cutler in for as long as they did, but I understand why he kept himself in. He takes a TON of criticism for being "soft", and I really believe that's why he rushed himself back and wouldn't quit. Trestman should've pulled him out before the first half was evem over, that's on him. I feel like everyone completely overlooked the fact that they couldn't run the ball at all! That was the real reason we lost that game.

Nice win for the Panthers Sunday at San Fran, it seems like I've been predicting them to have a breakout season for about 3 years now and it just never happens. Now they're riding a 5 game winning streak with New England coming to town on Monday night so we'll see if they're for real or not.

 

The NFC playoff race has kind of taken a turn for the weird, maybe the Pathers are ripe for that second wildcard spot now that the QB situation in the NFC north is kind of in shambles.

 

And speaking of weird, the Browns play at Cincinnati Sunday for first place in the AFC North, don't think anyone saw that coming at the midway point of the season, especially after the Richardson trade, which appears to be a huge success for Cleveland.

It could be worse. You could be a Cowboys fan. (Like me)

 

Or be a fan of a team that lost four Super Bowls in a row (two to Dallas that I'm sure you fondly recall) and (soon to be) 14 years in a row of not going to the playoffs.

 

I have the right to cry...or laugh...or drink harder than any other NFL team fan at this point!

 

Signed,

A tortured Bills fan in Western, NY.

 

 

PS - It's snowing & blowing outside now - yay!

It was a nice win. I knew they had all the pieces they needed to make it to the playoffs this year, if only they could pull it all together. It looks like they are finally starting to put it all together. I still don't think they have it together enough to make it all they way through the playoffs but you never know. If they can keep the injuries down.

 

Monday night is going to be a tough battle for them.

^They may need all the help they can get although with their strong running game potential and New England's weak defense against the run they have a good chance. Especially if the Panther's defense continues to dominate like they have been.

I'm just happy my Ravens finally won. It was a good game, but man we need to get our run game going.

Yeah, so much for Ray Rice in the first round for fantasy, that was a big mistake.

 

There was a great quote in the Baltimore Sun about Ray Rice which was something like "He looks like a little kid in a puffy snowsuit trying to run". It's also all but been confirmed by Harbaugh that he's battling injuries that are obviously effecting him this year.

If Mike Smith is not fired after this terrible season, I will be very surprised. People can blame the injuries all they want, but a great coach should be able to form a decent football team out of the players that they hired. Horrible, very horrible. I'm predicting another blowout against the Saints Thursday and eventually a 2-14 season, ironically, the opposite of the best season they had in 1998 when they went 14-2 and to the Super Bowl 15 years ago. A team that is getting a billion dollar stadium in 2017 should have a billion dollar team calling it home. This is ridiculous considering the season the team had last year.

Didn't even notice this when I watched the Bills game yesterday.

 

Check out the far away shot from CBS sports and watch the guy on the 300 level. This idiot is sliding down the railing...and then falls backwards onto some guys head down into the 200 level!

 

And then we wonder why people think Americans are stupid and wonder why we have to constantly spend money on baby-proofing everything?

 

Luckily, both were treated and released from the hospital with no life threatening injuries, but the guy that slid down the rail should be in jail just based on his sheer stupidity alone....wow.

The Panthers played well, but the last play was clearly PI. Kuechly had him by the shoulders before the DB touched the ball.

 

I agree. Unfortunately there are always games won or lost by calls or non-calls of the officials.

Like Seattle GB last year. That was probably the worst call I've ever seen a professional ref make.

Sports Science did a segment on the non-call today: contact was only made 2/3 of a second BEFORE it was intercepted. So technically it was PI, but when it was that close it is hard to entirely fault the ref. I really don't want them to start reviewing PI calls either…games already drag on too long with commercial timeouts.
