Yes,
You are correct. We should have named our game something different. I have no idea why we couldn't get a lttle more creative with the naming our glorious game. You guys over there can have FOOTBALL. Too bad it's too late to do anything about it. Let's please not get into a discussion of which one is better. Kiddies on YouTube can argue that nonsense.

I'm hoping Aston Villa might win but it's unlikely. It'll probably be Man U, Chelsea or Liverpool or someone like that

Pretty much dead? Come on have some faith. They have like 2 starters left on defense and about 7 on offense and they are still in the hunt. Pulled out a close one today but Wilfork and Warren should be back next week so we have to believe. They have done much better than anyone thought they would after all these injuries, not to mention losing the greatest QB of all time has got to hurt a little too.

Just glad they had a win today against the team I despise the most !!!! lol

Greatest QB of all time??


Hardly. Try Unitas! Or even Montana, for that matter.

Oh...stick a fork in the Pats!

They're done.

Sorry, nhzoso. :-(

Though...

My "boys" did not look good yesterday. :-(

Answer me this...

Why would you defer to kick at the start to end up "against" the wind in the 4th quarter?

And...Romo looked terrible, which didn't help either.


UGHH... :-(

Nope sorry Mikey, Brady is the Best of all time IMO. Put Brady on a team like Montana had or Manning even and he would have done what he did last year every year so stick a fork in that ; )

Well...

not to beat a dead horse, but...

Even Tom Brady would tell you that Unitas and Montana were better then him.

Not to mention the NFLWA.

So we both know where the fork goes, nhzoso.

In the Pats 0f 2008/2009! ;-)

LOL, I thought you may have had a good argument but to say even he would admit it just proves he is not a self absorbed jackass like say Oh I dont know Dan Marino. Dude that proves squat, I bet if you ask Montana he would say Brady was better or Elway. Not many of them are bold enough to say they are the greatest. There is only one Muhammad Ali.. Thank god!


But I agree with the dead horse thing, nothing either of us says will change the others mind and since I am right anyway it does not really matter. : )

Stick a salad fork in that.

Jesus did the Giants stink that game.... They looked like utter junk. Dropped sooo many clutch balls. Why did Plaxico have to go in and f everything up.

Its really pointless to talk about the "best ever" in anything....people always have differences in opinions. Gosh everyone doesnt even agree that buddy was the best ever.

Yeah Plaxico really screwed up but I think the Giants will be fine, I still see them being one of only 3 teams that I think could win the SB. Pittsburgh and Tennessee being the other 2.

Granted the Pats are not in the playoffs but with all their key injuries they still managed an 11 - 5 record. Coach Bill Belichick you can say what you want has to be given lots of credit for their season. They are still better than many of the teams in the playoffs this year by far.

From what i hear it is pretty good, lol.

But the 'boys just fell apart didn't they...got 13 pro bowlers and they dont make the playoffs, that's the administration's fault...bad coaching? TO? Romo? they got some work to do.

Oh and the pats didnt make the playoffs....

Oh yeah, TG! :-(

The Cowboys' drama caught up with them, didn't it? Ughh...

Talk about underachieving. WOW!

I think Tony Romo needs to think about his unenviable position as being a big choke in the big games. Man, he stinks when it counts. Geeessshhhhh...

And the worst part about all this...

They're gettin' the same team next year! Uh, Oh!

Yeah I agree but ya know how it goes, he won't get any consideration for coach of the year, especially with the luck the Dolphins had this year.

It will be interesting to see what they do with Cassell, I think they will franchise him then probably trade him once they know Brady will be OK. I just hope Josh McDaniels stays on for atleast 1 more season because I dont think they have anyone in house who could take over the O' Coor. job.

The best part about this season is Manigina got his just due for being a RAT! I would be surprised if someone hired him even as a RB coach in the future.

Oh Yeah?


You think Brady is gonna be ok?

Well...according to some very good sources, his re-hab is WAY BEHIND schedule.

Plus...he's gettin' married soon, and you know what that'll do for his motivation.

IMO...his career is over! With the year that Cassel had, (much better than anticipated), I see TB stepping away from the game, and MC becoming the starting QB for the Pats.

It's simple, really.

Well if I was TB I think I would rather line up behind Gisele than the Center :-)

It is a touchy situation with his knee so I would not be surprised to see them franchise Cassel, I do think that Brady will be back. He's too much of a competitor to just walk away at this point.

Well, i dont think his career is over, but it sure wont be the same after an intense knee injury. IMO, his best years are behind him unfortunately. If he can recover and still be as good as he was pre-injury, then he'll be known as one of the best who ever played the game. But we'll see i guess.

LOL Yeah we'll see, he is already known as one of the best to play the game... He is the best IMO. Of course when he does come back and is the same then it will be well he has to win a 4th SB then I will consider him one of the best, or well if he wins another 2 MVP's blah, blah, blah... The numbers already speak for themselves not too mention the Superbowl's and MVP's and passing records. Which he would have alot more of if he played his whole career with WR's like MOss, and Marvin Harrison, or if he threw the ball with total recklessness like the Overrated Farve (who should have alot more SB's IMO).


Of course it's always a debate since there is no clear way to determine it but if you dont atleast consider him in the top 10 then you truly are either a Hater or just plain ol football ignorant. Believe me no one hates a player more than I hate Dan Marino but I do agree he was one of the Best to ever play the game.

Oh, Come on, nhzoso! You need to get outta TB's nether region, and start supporting Matt Cassel, man! Geeessshhh...

MC had a GREAT year! Considering his was thrown out there to the wolves like he was, after TB went down.

I thought you were a Pats fan, man! :-|

Give some credit to your team for Gods' sake!

And honestly, they got screwed out of the playoffs. They're better them some of the teams that made it...for sure!

...and you know I'm far from a Pats fan! ;-)

Yeah I am with ya on this one. You can only blame the GM and coaches so many times before ya have to look at ownership as being the problem. They are nice to a fault. They need to demand performance, and not run the team like they do the Motor company. I dont think the Lions are going to get any gov't bailouts.

So what do they do, well they fire the coach and then say they are keeping a few assistant coaches which kills any chance for a good Coach who wants to pick his own assistants from taking the next Head coach job in Detroit. Good Job Detroit they even screwed up a firing..LOL

i can't believe i'm just finding this thread now!

i gotta agree, Gisele does have a nicer behind, and Brady is one of the most competitive atheletes in all of sports, i like to compare guys like him, Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis to Tiger Woods - they thrive on competition, they can't imagine a life without it!

and quick, before the playoffs start - Superbowl pick?!

Titans vs. Giants!

and how about a darkhorse pick?!

Colts!

Hmm...I'm going with Giants and Tennessee in the SB, although this playoff season is really really really competitive, literally any team can make it.

The Falcons fell flat and got beat...plain and simple. However, we can hold our heads high after last years debacle. Too bad about Indy, I was hoping Peyton could pull it off.

Miami shot themselves in the foot with all those turnovers and the Ravens defense was just too much for them. I thought the Colts would win but give the Chargers credit. As a Giants fan I'm rooting for the Vikings because Giants fans don't ever root for Philly, no no no! Competition is fierce this year so whoever wins it all is gonna have to kick some serious butt to do it. Go Giants!!

That Charger's Colts game was amazing! it was an extremely hard fought game, got to give them chargers credit. Though they'll probably get dominated by the steelers. i was hoping for the dolphins to beat the ravens but dam their defense is amazing. Ravens vs tennessee'll be a very very good game. still stickin by my prediction.
