    Man I am super torn on who to root for next week. I love Brady, but Ray Lewis is like one of my top 3 favorite players in the NFL for the last decade (he is being replaced by DangeRuss Wilson after this year which makes it 3 QBs so I might need to expand my favorites list lol). I'd love to see Ray go out on top, but sweet damn can you even begin to imagine a Pats/49ers rematch?
    I figured Megatron would be in that list I mean he has been in the NFL now for a bit. Tony Gonzalez seems to just be money every year I don't know when that guy will ever decline in performance. DeMarcus Ware seems to be another player that is always solid to keep track of Witten of the Cowboys is a good mention as well.

    Both games will be good next week, for sure. Pats vs Ravens is always a good matchup, and I'd really love to see the underrated Falcons take out the 49ers, although the second half of the game today for Atlanta was quite atrocious. Still, I think the most likely result for the Superbowl will be Pats vs 49ers, and I feel both of these teams were the best in their conference for the second half of the season. Not having Gronk is going to suck for the Pats, but as they've proven, no one player (well other than Brady) really turns the tides that much...plenty of players have been able to do what Gronk does best in his absence and deliver a solid win.

    People tend to forget them, because, you know, Cowboys. But Witten has all the stat-breaking numbers, second only to Gonzalez in all of them for tight ends. And considering Tony Gonzalez is only second to Jerry Rice in ALL receivers receptions, it's a big enough feat to even be behind him.

    Reflecting back on the Falcons game and the season hasn't it been that way so far all year long. I mean Matt Ryan (Matty Ice for conscript) has 7 4th quarter comebacks this year. Falcons biggest wins this year have been decided in the 4th quarter and it just seems the kind of team they are. Also I wouldn't like to hear anymore Matt Ryan's Falcons can't win in the playoffs anymore he can take a breath of sigh now.

    He can barely take a breath of sigh, ugh. I was so devastated today. I'm going to have a grumpy few days. Literally no reason to watch football now. Same fucking teams that do it every year are right back to where they should be aside from the Falcons.

    If Baltimore doesn't win it and it goes to the 49ers or the Patriots i'm honestly going to wait a few years to watch football again, or at least until new teams get in there.

    Please Jesus give me a win for Ray Lewis.

    No , they sucks Broncos coaching staff choke on this and they suck

    Raven are just really bad since the last 5 years they don't deserve a place in the high ends ( with the same players rofl)

    And this game against the Broncos, look like a CFL game,,.....really

    I don't even know what you just said.

    OT: In the last decade the NFC has only had one team twice in the Superbowl it has been somebody different every year it seems the AFC is different it's been Pats,Colt's,and Steelers. I want to see somebody different in the Superbowl like Ravens and Falcons.

    Look at the bright side. If the Pats win we won't have to ever watch that stupid Ray Lewis spasmodic 'dance' again. If indeed his retirement is not just a team motivational publicity stunt.

    Wow, Seahawk fans lined up to welcome back the team as they arrived. Never seen anything like it, especially coming off a loss.

    Well at least we have a team for the next few years. If we grabbed like Jennings or something and picked up a 3rd CB too replace Trufant I'd be happy. I also wouldn't be surprised to see them grab up some OL. Some of those guys are garbago.

    Moffitt was in for Paul Moquistan (I know I slaughtered that name) and Sweezy was in Moffitt's place at one point. Sweezy was getting lit up as usual. Moffitt was solid though.

    It feels weird saying we wouldn't of got as far as we did if it wasn't for our QB. Hes done things that Hasselbeck couldn't do.

    We'll draft defensively though. We got plenty of cap room for FA signings especially if we trade Flynn. Enough to pay Rice, Miller, Okung and Lynch and still a lot of change.

    Btw, Miller was beasting today on a broken heel.

    DEAR GOD

    http://www.nfl.com/playoffs/story/0a...lround-weekend

    nfl.com yet again sees fit to jam more content onto a single page, now with a stupid dialog popup near the page telling me to make it a social experience. Jesus Christ, do they even care about having a clean website? I'd hate to have to be a dev for them.

    I can't stand the commentator though. Hopefully they have a new one.

    "DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS"

    Uhh... Does it really? Lets look at the 4 teams that won this weekend and where their defenses wouldve ranked compared to NFL team's averages this season

    Baltimore Ravens: 35 Points Allowed (32nd) 415 Yards Allowed (31st)
    New England Patriots: 28 Points Allowed (30th) 434 Yards Allowed (31st)
    San Francisco 49ers: 31 Points Allowed (32nd) 361 Yards Allowed (21st)
    Atlanta Falcons: 28 Points Allowed (30th) 508 Yards Allowed (32nd)

    Defense wins championships my ass.

    Uhh, okay. You can't legitimately compare one game to sixteen, as sixteen is a far better sample size.

    Baltimore Ravens: 35 Points Allowed (32nd) 415 Yards Allowed (31st)
    Season:
    - Points Allowed: 21.5 (12th)
    - Yards Allowed: 350.9 (17th)
    - Pass Yards Allowed: 228.1 (17th)
    - Rush Yards Allowed: 122.8 (20th)

    New England Patriots: 28 Points Allowed (30th) 434 Yards Allowed (31st)
    Season:
    - Points Allowed: 20.7 (9th)
    - Yards Allowed: 373.2 (25th)
    - Pass Yards Allowed: 271.4 (29th)
    - Rush Yards Allowed: 101.9 (9th)

    San Francisco 49ers: 31 Points Allowed (32nd) 361 Yards Allowed (21st)
    Season:
    - Points Allowed: 17.1 (2nd)
    - Yards Allowed: 294.4 (3rd)
    - Pass Yards Allowed: 200.2 (4th)
    - Rush Yards Allowed: 94.2 (4th)

    Atlanta Falcons: 28 Points Allowed (30th) 508 Yards Allowed (32nd)
    Season:
    - Points Allowed: 18.7 (5th)
    - Yards Allowed: 365.6 (24th)
    - Pass Yards Allowed: 242.4 (23rd)
    - Rush Yards Allowed: 123.2 (21st)

    Defense wins championships my ass.
    They certainly don't automatically guarantee championships, but I really don't see how you're making this claim, Jibjabb.

    Pats vs. 49ers for the Superbowl - just as it should have been last year.

    Patriots win, just as they should have last year.

    In fact, the Pats should have won both Superbowls vs. the Giants.

    Defense wins championships however teams built on defense doesn't win championships if that makes sense.

  19. #5939
    Whatever happened to strength on both sides of the ball?

    Generally the team that scores the most points wins. (thank god for John Madden)
