Jay Cutler out. This slop fest is about to get a lot more sloppy.
Our defense is the worst it's been in years. The D-line is terrible outside of Ngata and he's been quoted multiple times saying that his injuries are really hindering him. Williams and Smith are both pretty bad in the secondary and you saw today how much help Ed Reed is at this point. He's still a ballhawk but that's really all he's good for at this point. Thank God for Bernard Pollard.
Now, I get to look forward to 2 games against Pittsburgh in 3 weeks. Sigh ... seriously, who makes this schedule?? >.<
How is Eli Manning suddenly so terribly bad? From an 'elite' QB, I can see a down game here and there, but a down game should still include 150-200 yards passing and a TD drive or two. Eli has been horrible for 4 games.
Eli is only a couple years removed from a 25 int season, he can be a little erratic
at least it isn't everybody complaining about his body language anymore
Why isn't the tie game all over the news? Isn't that a big deal? First time it's happened in 4 years. Guess that isn't anything special.
Well you'd be celebrating one of the worst games ever played, but it's still sort of exciting.

Norv Turners career went from a downward spiral to a freefall.
its a pity they had to waste a year sticking with him
San Diego assembled a ton of talent and never won anything, now all that talent is gone and they're acting like its still there
it seems like all you have to do is get to the conference championship the first year with your team and you have total job security no matter how bad you stink from then on
Rex Ryan did it the first two years so the Jets are stuck with him forever
I don't think they are stuck with him at all. I think Rex's choices this year with especially the QB situation were abysmal and the record shows. They need to start Tebow, or bench him. This back and forth fuckery or what Rex likes to call wild cat is retarded. Its not working. Give up on it. When Tebow comes in its so painfully clear whats going to happen and honestly I'm disappointed in the Seahawks for not shutting him out when he was in. But they did limit him which I guess is the silver lining.
On the topic of the Seahawks, not sure how I feel. Our offensive line really struggled at first. The second half was a bit better, but god the choices Russell is making under pressure aren't rookie-esqe and much more like a veteran. There was this nasty shovel pass he made seconds before getting sacked by the entire defensive line to Marshawn Lynch in the 2nd half that I probably wont ever be able to find a clip of, but that was a great play and resulted in a big play.
Hes also getting a lot of synergy with the receivers now. I think Rice, Tate and Baldwin are really good for this offense because they allow Russell to throw these balls where the receivers have to make a play to get it and they do. Its much harder to turn over when you have WRs that can do that. Rice and Tate are both tied at like 6 TDs, sharing the 10th rank in the league. Lynch already at 1k rushing yards also shows how split down the middle the offense is. I'm liking the offense right now. I feel like when Pete was holding back everything it led to the predictable offense that defenses could pick apart.
Tough road schedule here, if we can split these games (losing the Dolphins game would be unacceptable in my books). NFC got even more interesting this week. Seahawks now have a shot at the NFC west now with what happened last night for the 49ers. The only time we have went 5-0 at home was in 2005.
As for San Diego, I continue to be surprised every day I wake up and Turner is still the coach. This has been a three year trend though. Five years ago the Bolts fired a coach after losing in the playoffs during a 13-3 season. Now they are on pace for their third season in a row of absolute horribleness having had zero post seasons success under Turner, and he is still employed. Its baffling. Is San Diego trying to pull a Seattle Supersonics on their fans? Tank so hard and be so frustratingly mediocre/awful that you drive away the fans and then move the team out from under them? That might seem like a joke, but San Diego has had declining attendance for five straight seasons and has moved from a middle of the road team in 2008 to one of the worst teams for attendance in the NFL this year by percentage.
That is 4th worst by percentage this season (the Skins are just behind them but have 17,000 more people per game), 8th by true attendance.
Donovon McNabb is off the hook, apparently nobody knows the freaking overtime/tie rules. As far as it being a big deal, it's not THAT big a deal, it's just a statistical oddity that would show up on highlights, but not looked at more than "haha, look at all the idiots that don't know games can end in a tie".
