Watching the Cowboys yesterday was enough to bring up one's Thanksgiving meal. They lost on both sides of the line of scrimmage and Romo played either like he was hurt or like the old mr no clutch Romo. Hope they can redeem themselves in a few weeks in Philly.

I think rumours of the Seahawks demise have been greatly exaggerated. Looks like that defence is ramping up at just the right time. And the Hobbit QB just continues to get it done - then you factor in Beast Mode... if the Hawks manage to win in Philly next game (no small feat), then look out.

Thankfully, the Seahawks have woken up and realized that last season won't replay itself just because they want it to.

Back up the truck and get rid of the front office.
A few more steps closer to some coaches and players walking the plank.

I was rooting for Seattle to win the game last night because I'm not a fan of Harbaugh. He proclaimed after their slim victory over the Redskins that his QB was "great with a capital G" and couldn't understand why others don't see it that way.

I guess he got his answer last night....

You can say that again. As far as I'm concerned, they should have just turned the TV cameras on the Cowboys cheerleaders for the entire 4th quarter. Although they didn't have much to cheer about. At least that would have been worth watching.

At this point I don't see them winning another game other than Vikings because they may lay down for draft pick.

As a PATS fan I am waiting to see the outcome of tomorrow game against the Packers before I feel confident about their chances. If Brady, Gronk and Revis stay healthy they should win it all .

But remember we were 18-0 and lost the Superbowl to a Giants team that was a two touchdown underdog.

Damn, I wish you had not mentioned that as I have been trying so hard to forget it and you have reopened an old wound.

Yeah that had to hurt. Anyway this may be a Super Bowl preview. Two great quarterbacks going at it. I will have to give the edge to Pats though because they are at home where they have been practically invincible since the Brady era.

My wound was reopened earlier in this thread with the video of the David Tyre catch.

I wonder if anyone will pickup "and play" Ray Rice this season now that he has been reinstated?

Mr. Rice will be forgiven since he is an athlete and can help win games. Now, if you or I told so much as an off colour joke in that same elevator, our heads would be forfeit. Permanently.

Makes me wonder how many NFL players have hit their wives or spanked their kids or took illegal drugs or drove drunk (etc) this year and haven't been caught, reported or made public? 10%, 30%, more

Of course they could, but then they would be penalized for having too many men on the field.

Congrats to the Packers. It was a good game and the Packers generally outplayed the Pats, though the Pat defense stiffened up in the second half. That defensive lapse toward the end of the first half was a killer.

The Packers deserved to win. They were the better team.

Hopefully they can meet again in the Superbowl

I thought settling for field goals in the red zone was gonna come back to haunt the Packers. Almost did. A good game to watch. The Packers dominated most of the stats.
