I guess they just can't really say or practice "no more"

I suppose if he stomped on his spouse/GF like he did on Aaron Rogers that he would have been suspended.

Well I wouldn't call it a stomp. Just an "accidental step backwards". But yes I will admit it would hurt like hell still. But you have to love the official explanation he gave for the action....My feet were so cold out there from playing I didn't even feel I stepped on him.

Bull puckey! The first step, maybe. The second, when he raised his other foot, to insure his full weight was felt...

Personally I think the intent was clear based on how Suh reacted after Rodgers shoved him. He did not even turn around or acknowledge the shove. When you get shoved it is natural to turn around and look. But then again maybe he tried to but he was so cold he couldn't.

With Rodgers' accuracy, maybe the next chance he should have did a Burt Reynolds in "The Longest Yard"

+1. And then Rodger's could say 'I don't know what happened, my hands were really cold...'

That is a great plan for someone with short term gratification revenge needs....but when he gets up....and he will.... That guy is a monster! And I bet he can out run a horse too!

Predictions for the Superbowl winner? Since playoffs start today.

I'll probably be totally wrong as I'm picking to top seeds in the NFC. Seahawks vs Packers. For the AFC, I'm staying away from the Broncos and Manning this year, and picking Patriots vs Colts.

For the Superbowl, my pick is Patriots over Seahawks.

Anyone can pick NE vs Seattle in the Super Bowl. They are the 2 top seeds. Lets go out on a limb a bit. I'll take Pittsburgh vs Green Bay. Green Bay isn't that much of a stretch of course but not too many people are picking the Steelers. They are 6-1 vs teams over .500 which is the best of any playoff team.

The reason that they are the top seeds is probably why I'll be wrong

Since Dallas already beat the Seahawks in Seattle I see them do it again in the NFC. The Steelers will beat the Broncos and lose to the PATS.

Patriots over Dallas in a close SB. Brady and Belichick will finally win their fourth in six appearances.

Dallas scraped out a win in Seattle - kudos to them. I'd say odds are LONG that they do it again. If they do it, I'd say they are "team of destiny" material. Though calling a team led by Tony Romo that... seems wrong somehow.
