    I appreciate that they want to get Fitzgerald a few extra yards, who knows those tenths of a point might make a difference for my fantasy team, but maybe they could try scoring instead of throwing underneath to a guy with 3 defenders between him and the endzone

    edit - that was a hilarious way to end it, so much terrible play calling and execution by Arizona, how did they have 4 wins?!

    Sad to see the cards go down this hard. Seems like their D wasn't as good as they have been, at least week 1.

    when are people going to realize that Kolb is terrible?
    he was terrible in Philly and he's terrible now..

  4. #3824
    How can you say Kolb is terrible after that game? He took 9 sacks (and should have taken more but managed to get away from a few), got hit pretty much every throw, and yet stayed in the entire game and never made a bad decision. That takes fucking balls. If Tom Brady was behind that line he would have panicked and started throwing it to the Rams after the third or fourth sack.

    Granted, Tom Brady would have made a couple of those throws that Kolb didn't make, but it's not like he was off by a mile; he was a couple inches off at worst, and all were thrown to the right guy. He's only going to get better as time goes on, and even after this loss I'm excited about having him at QB.

    20 career starts. Under pressure 100% of the game.

    Granted, he's no elite quarterback, but you can't really say anything about his performance unless you give him time, in more ways than one.

    There were many bad decisions. Like being in the red zone and tossing it to Larry when you had another receiver in the endzone.

    You just can't compare Kolb to Tom Brady... I'm sorry.

    Okay, I'll admit that was stupid. But he still handled the pressure better than any quarterback not named Roethlisberger would have.

    As should any other NFL QB.

    Without looking, Vick has probably been hit and sacked much more than Kolb.

  9. #3829
    True, but Vick throws ints and fumbles when he gets hit. Kolb has been making less mistakes and throwing more touchdowns.

    If the Texans don't have any horrible injuries, then I think they will have no problems getting to the play offs and hopefully to the SB. Their so fantastic(dat defense) right now, their like unbeatable atm.
    But they have several very tough games ahead. They got the Packers, Pats and the Ravens to deal with. I'm rooting for them all the way because Dallas always finds a way to fuck up.

    I would love to see The Falcons and Texans in the Super Bowl just because it's something different. I'm tired of seeing Settlers,Giants,and the Pats in the Super Bowl...it would be nice to see somebody different.

    Still wouldn't rule out the possibility of a Falcons/Ravens final this year.

    I'm kinda silently rooting for them. I think it would be cool.

    Me too. I've always rooted for the underdogs, or teams that just historically never win like the Falcons. New teams like the Texans need something to feel proud about, last year was their first playoff game I believe. Hell, if the Browns suddenly went on an undefeated run for the rest of the season, I'd cheer em on the destroy anything they came across.

    Damn, with all this hype of the Denver NE game you'd think it was a primetime game, but nope. Instead we get two shitfest games for primetime.

    Jets losing 34-0 again sounds like a great Primetime game.

    You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.

    Well, San Diego/New Orleans was going to be a good game until we saw how bad the Saints would do. Then again, the Chargers have that history of starting strong and then failing hard. Trap game for them maybe.

    can't believe nobody has discussed it yet, but those vests like what vick is wearing + his jersey are VERY slick, you can't tuck a ball in it properly and while it's 100% on vick (the fumbles) it's the only way he can absorb 16 hits per game at QB (more than any QB in the league, more than all but 8 RBs in the league)

    no need to have your 200lb QB running inside on a dive play at the goal line though.
