    Did anybody else realize that Cundiff was going to miss the field goal before he was even lined up? He took the field really late and rushed everything. When I saw the play clock and when he finally got on the field something just said he was going to miss it.

    I don't think it was the laces though. As you saw, he had to rush out to the field and get set quickly to beat the play clock. They had one more timeout, they should have called it to make sure he was ready. It's still his fault, but they should have used that last timeout.

    That's an issue with your TV, not Fox. Not positive what causes it though. Either you're in a bad resolution or watching an HD broadcast without a HDTV.

    And Sykol, you do realize Flacco outplayed Brady right? Nobody in the right mind would take Painter over anyone.

    If the giants win I feel SB 2012 as most boring thing ever. "These exact teams were in it a few years ago."
    So, despite my location im gonna have to root against the giants. Ive gotten tired of the same few teams making it to the super bowl -.-

    Couldn't agree more with this.

    It's one thing if you're in the 2nd half and you're down by a TD or more, but it's near the start of the game and it's 3-0. Even if you don't get the 1st down (or TD), the Pats are pinned back behind the 5. Just no reason not to go for it there.

    The only thing better than the look on Suggs face was the look on Belichick's face. Everyone around him was cheering and he's just standing there looking completely confused like, "Wait, what just happened? We're not going to overtime??"

    What?

    I'll admit, he's had a couple of games where he's disappeared a bit but overall, this has been one of his better seasons. He's easily a runner up for Defensive Player of the Year (though it should to Jared Allen).

    Definitely ... I'd rather just get blown out. At least I know what to expect when it ends. To have that kind of momentum at the end of the game just to watch a game-winning catch fall to the ground and a game-tying FG shank horribly to the right ... ugh.

    In other news, I changed my Facebook status: "I think Cundiff is German for Poo".

    I agree, but at least Evans has a bit of an excuse. He was injured most/all of the season. He was basically starting over at the end of the season and saw very little playing time. Cundiff on the other hand ... ugh.

    Did anyone see him stiff-arm the cameraman following him as he walked off the field? The only positives atm for Ravens fans is knowing that Cam Cameron and Billy Cundiff won't be here for the 2012 season.

    Only because both teams played kinda badly. But when you have a QB that literally panics the second someone moves within five yards of him, doesn't know when to run it, and throws passes that make Helen Keller look like Peyton Manning, you have to put at least some of the blame on him.

    Not sure what you were watching but Flacco did pretty much everything that was asked of him from the 2nd quarter thru the end of the game including what should have been a game-winning drive at the end. That's with a RB that got all but shot down in the 1st half and a WR-core that has bricks for hands (T. Smith), just came off knee surgery (Boldin) or basically missed the entire season (Evans). All that while dealing w/ an offensive line that continually broke down on him. Hell, he even broke off a couple big runs.

    Not sure what else you want him to do.

    Suggs is all hype..he is lost in his defense all the time, just because he talks tough on tv and trys to act intimidating does not mean he is good...

    And as a vikings fan, I can tell you one thing about Jared Allen: He sells out the run game in order to pump up his sack total 100%. I am shocked more teams do not just run it right at him as he flys past the running back at max speed.

    Btw, no one talking about the Giants / 49er's game?

    It's tied with just over a minute to go.

    It's too exciting to turn away from!

    Tons of three-and-outs, still more in OT.

    Giant win.
    42 and 46 exact same teams. I believe this has only happened one other time.

    That was a brilliant weekend of Championship games for a neutral viewer. Bring on the Superbowl.

    Yup. Not really wanting to root for the Pats, but let's go New England in the Super Bowl.

    I'm a bit of a cynic and that remark made my sarcasm detector go *BEEP*

    It was a nice game if you like watching teams defend and pounce on mistakes, instead of trying to ( or more likely succeeding in) to create something on offense.

    Anyway Giants - Pats Superbowl, as a Pats fan this pleases me, we can never forget '07 but we can at least get a chance to exact some revenge in a rematch now.

    EDIT: Oh and I will *break* random stuff in my house if the Giants get painted as the underdog in the coming Superbowl. They beat 2 quality teams, they are NOT an underdog, never mind their crappy regular season record.
