ruht roh. Even though I kinda felt like this was coming.
Also you mentioned liking the Real Rob Report. That stuff is great. You don't see teams doing that in the NFL that much. I also watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31kWCeRwIT4 which is really great breakdowns of the Seattle offense / defense.
It's pretty clear Alex Smith has already capped on his potential, he's only a good clock manager, that's really it. I doubt Kaepernick will be the franchise QB they're looking for, but seems to potentially be the better option.

You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.
Definitely don't agree with the choice. Smith isn't all that special, but he doesn't make many mistakes and he has a defense that keep other teams pacified. I think Kaepernick had a good game against a team that played absolutely flat, and this next week will illustrate that.
I sure hope these people are just talking out of their ass, but this is the dumbest idea I've heard in awhile http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--di...212235294.html
On that note, why don't we just get rid of kickers altogether? They're already useless on kickoffs, because even the most mediocre pro kicker can score 90% touchbacks with the new "safety" rules. Next to go? Punting.
Detroit how you make me so sad, they had me believing they might actually beat the Packers and they fall apart. Im glad Im not actually a fan of that team. Granted mine got blown out to a backup quarterback, if anything it should show how underrated Jay Cutler really is. When he is not in the game this team turns into a complete wad of shit.
I tend to see the author's point, though; 99.3% success rate, and the missed ones have had so little impact on anything at all, why even bother? put the point on the board, run off 3 seconds of clock, better yet make that 8 seconds and skip the kickoff and touchback to come, maybe take an extra minute timeout to sell more beer and trucks (can't believe I said that...) and get back to the game

I'm a big fan of the no PAT. Blocks or misses are so incredibly rare that the only reason it even exists is for the 1 in 1000 chance of a fake. Put the 1 on the board and the coach can opt to go for two instead if they so desire. I'd rather see them eliminate that than kickoffs.
No kickers would put me off the NFL entirely, removing kicking for points and forcing a run for 2 would be more entertaining, but the day Field Goals are gone I'd stop watching.
So Colin Kaepernick is reportedly the 49ers starting QB going forward. Should be entertaining.
I wonder if this is still resting Alex or flat out seeing what Kaep can do. I grew up in Truckee and am a fan of UNR, and I watched him slaughter the Vandals several times up here in Idaho, so I am a Kaep fan, but was expecting to have him sit at least another year. I am excited to see what he can do though.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every moment of it.
Sane people are boring. Or else I've been around insane people so long that I can't tell the difference anymore. Either way, chase away those silly notions of linear thought: they have never done anyone good.

Well that was fun. Lions managed to beat the Texans for one quarter. Now the game is over and the streak is going to continue.

Stafford pisses me off so much sometimes. That throw to Johnson was underthrown by several yards leading to what should have been a pick. He has been doing that all year. Then the next play he does another one of his stupid sidearm throws for no reason.
Then Mike Thomas, former Jag, catches a TD. Again it was on another stupid sidearm toss, but it worked that time.
1) Where the hell did Houston's vaunted defense go? Second week in a row they have been lit up.
2) Holy shit Kid Rock is fucking terrible. That song started as a rip off of California Girls by the Beach Boys then transitioned into being a list of artists from Detroit. Grats Kid Rock, you managed to make No Doubt's performance opening night on NBC almost bearable. Here's an idea. Instead of getting a guy who is trying to rip off Seger and then doing it laughably bad, why not just get Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet band, or anyone that has talent.
