Figured I'd start this. The oft-discussed undefeated season for the defending champs is not going well at the moment.

So my Packers looked interesting. Our D looked mean, and that has been the weakest part of our entire team for the past 5-6 seasons. Rodgers had some flaws, and the offense looked a little lame... that's kind of par for the course against that insanity that is the Seahawks D. Pretty excited for next Sunday's christening of the Falcons new digs.

I'd actually prefer that. Who wants to go to Minneapolis in February anyway? I'll prob hold out for our inevitable run through Hotlanta > Miami > LA.

Seriously though, I know it's probably painful for you, but this team is really good.

Iíve watched that play about 10 times since. James clearly lost control of the ball when it hit the ground. Thatís the rule - thatís how they call it.
Then the Pats get a pick. I thought Ben was gonna spike and kick a FG to tie.

great interview with Belichik. Gotta love the guy

Quote
The New England Patriots signed Pittsburgh Steelers franchise sack leader James Harrison on Tuesday. With Bill Belichick meeting the media Wednesday morning, inquiries into the acquisition were obvious.

While it wasn't at "On to Cincinnati" level, Belichick clearly had no interest in providing insight into how the Patriots plan to use the 39-year-old defender.

Below is a transcript of the back-and-forth:

 
How would you describe James Harrison's playing style?

"He's played outside linebacker for the Steelers. We'll see how it goes."

Is there carryover from what they asked him to do and what he could do for your team?

"Yeah, I don't know. We'll start working with him and see how it goes."

What are your thoughts on his career?

"Good."

How much of a factor did his experience in big games play a role in the decision to sign him?

"Yeah, we can't control any of that."

You guys have a lot of experience playing against him. Is the process different when bringing in a guy like that as opposed to someone with less experience?

"Every player is different."

Do you put any stock into the fact that he could provide valuable intelligence given his familiarity with the Steelers and their system?

"Well, we're playing the Jets this week. I don't really know what that has to do with it. Maybe I'm missing something. I don't know."

What about looking ahead to any possible matchups in the playoffs?

"Well, we play the Jets this week."

Good job, good effort, Boston Media.

It became clear the winner of the Saint/Vikings game was getting to the Super Bowl.  It also became clear Brees was the only man left who could come close to hanging with Brady.  While the end of that game was extremely exciting, unfortunately it basically handed the Patriots another title.

As I am from South Jersey, I have a lot of friends and family who are Eagles fans. One of them posted this meme, but with spelling errors. One of them was...."defelates balls". I love the lousy spelling on the internet.
