    Jim Harbaugh having a procedure on irregular heartbeat, unsure if he will coach Monday. Sounds pretty likely though.

    Oh, and Brian Urlacher is starting to go up in my books.

    I've been thinking about this for awhile, but offensive holding really needs to be a five yard penalty. Ten yards is too much for what is probably the most common penalty. It kills drives. And it can be called at any time. As vague and confusing the rule already is, you're going to basically stop drives for it? I don't get it. It was 5 yards a while ago, wasn't it?

    then they could make defensive holding not an automatic first down?

    teams don't seem to be having trouble scoring points last I checked

    As a Cowboys fan, I would be all for that.

    Raven's CB Jimmy Smith just had surgery for a sports hernia. Possibly out for the rest of the season.

    Yay for 4th and 5th string CB's getting to start for the rest of the season.

    As a Cowboys fan, any change to offensive holding and false starts are welcomed. Problem is, the Cowboys line has to hold because they are so awful at blocking.

    Cutler being out for the Bears doesn't bode well for them Monday Night against the 49'ers. I'm a Bears fan, but even I don't feel to confident with Jason Cambell starting.

    if my QB were Jay Cutler I wouldn't feel too bad about him getting hurt, they even have a genuine actual NFL QB as their backup now, a QB who has about the same passer rating as Cutler in recent years, and he was working with the Oakland receiving group that was drafted for their ability to win the race to the trainer's table, which is to say they were almost as bad as who Chicago had

    I really don't want the falcons to shit the bed against the cards.

    At least wait a few weeks.

    looks like foles (hit 5 times, 2 INTs, 1 fumble) isn't fixing anything either. funny how the white QB is having excuses made for him by the white announcers though.

    when a corner blitz gets to foles they say the OT has to pick that up
    when a corner blitz gets to vick they say he shouldn't hold the ball so long (3 seconds)

    It's nice to see Trent Richardson do well, but come the hell on Dallas. You're losing to the CLEVELAND BROWNS.

    As much as I hate the Eagles and Vick, It's not the QB or the Ried. It's their god awful front line lol

    And what happened to the Falcons?. Ryan is killing my fantasy team lol. The Ryan/White combo has been doing me so good all year and the they seemed to forget how to play.

    Loren G. "Sam" Lickteig passed away on Nov. 14, 2012 of complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.
    Possibly one of the worst things I've ever read ... and yet, I couldn't stop laughing.

    Can someone please explain to me how Chad Henne lit up the Texans for 4TDs and 340 yards? Also, why is Henne not the starting QB in Jacksonville? He has played significant time in three games this year and in each of them looked vastly better than Gabbert has all season. The last week and a half with Henne play the bulk of the game thanks to Glassbert getting injured immediately the Jags have looked like a semi functional football team.

    The Lions lost to the Packers, again. I think that makes 21 losses in the last 24 games against the Pack. Couple more weeks until the game in Green Bay which Detroit will lose for the 21st year in a row.

    Houston only cases in a FG giving Chad Henne the chance to win the game for the Jags.

    ---------- Post added 2012-11-18 at 04:39 PM ----------

    Holy hell the Jags might actually pull this off. WTF Houston. 1st and goal at the 6.

    ---------- Post added 2012-11-18 at 04:42 PM ----------

    Okay maybe not, the Jags are promptly imploding when they got in the red zone.

    Five more months and they can draft six offensive linemen.

    theyre both bad and should feel bad lol.

    Eagles dont get it. The passing game isnt working, and it hasnt been working and it will continue to not work. IT gets worse because McCoy got hurt. Arguably one of the best tools in your toolkit was underutilized all season and is now hurt. You can't win when you dont use whats given you success in the first place.

    You're a couple weeks late. I don't know if it was their "head coach" coming back, or what, but they've been on fire for a while.
