    That House guy that filled in for Shields was actually decent.
    Only because the Refs weren't calling for holds or interference. In a clean game that guy would have cost them 100 yrds. While a guy like Shields would have gotten the job done clean.

    This man speaks the truth. At least the refs were consistent in not calling penalties though. The refs all WC weekend were not calling some blatant penalties, enjoyable when your team isn't playing, but when they are it is terrifying. Not calling penalties in order to not have meaning on the game's outcome inadvertently has an effect on the game's outcome. That game should not have been that close. The Packers o-line was decimated, and held off the pass rush of SF by being able to hold. The deflection by Brock on the long pass to Nelson could have been called interference. Hopefully the Niners aren't as sloppy next week offensively (yeah, right.)

    Boy can't wait till you face Carolina and Seattle again. I for one like that the refs are letting teams play football.

    NFL network - Colts v. Chiefs.


    Biggest play of the game was Bethea tackling bowe and holding KC to a FG.
    We all change, when you think about it. We're all different people all through our lives. And that's okay, that's good, you've got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

    My favorite was Smith doing that perfect shovel pass. He played dam well that game. Except for the fumble when he got hit directly from behind, but I feel that is more an O Line failure for letting a defender get directly behind their QB.

    The San Francisco 49ers' 23-20 win over the Green Bay Packers had 47.1 million viewers Sunday on Fox to make it the most-watched wild-card game on record.
    Good to see. Unexpected.

    Isn't the NFL breaking viewing records every year these days?

    That just makes sense frankly. More people = more viewers. Can't really compare to previous decades in that regard.

    I wish they'd add a, "due to increased population and more accessible content!" after every statement about how X has broken a viewership record.

    Does the playoffs count to the CotY awards? If so, then I think Reid should be out of consideration. Having taken the time to consider the game, I understand why Philly fans were sick of the guy. Up 38-10, and still calling a ton more passing plays than runs. I don't care if your pro-bowl RB is injured, Knile Davis was solid until he got hurt and even when he did go down, they still had a third string guy and Dexter McCluster was a college RB, who knows how to run dives, sweeps, etc.

I honestly thought this would be the year they broke their losing playoff streak at least but I was wrong. I kind of feel bad for the guy and it's not really fair to blame the loss solely on him, but a stronger QB would make that team one of the best teams in the AFC.

    And still runs plays from the backfield as it is.

    Pretty much, yeah. Pretty sure the Superbowls have more and more people watching every year, too....like I think the most watched Superbowls have been the last six or seven of them, each beating out the last in viewers.

    There will be no running on Andy's watch.

    Another factor that may have accounted for more viewers of the 49ers vs. Packers was how freaking cold it was across the nation. What else better to do than sit by a cozy fire or such munching on some food while watching a playoff game?
