    Part of me wonders if the Seahawks have left too much time on the clock for the Falcons to go down and get a field goal. :p

    Matt Bryant was on my fantasy team. Be a hero, bro!

    I swear to god if this ends on a Hail Mary completion...

    EDIT: And that, Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll, replacement refs...is an INTERCEPTION.

    Were both coaches trying to lose there at the end?

    Icing the kicker is such a stupid thing to do. They would have won without that. Good job, Pete. I really don't like him at all, but I really wanted Atlanta to lose. I love Tony G but I don't really like the idea of him being rewarded for jumping ship. Also, I would have much rather played Seattle at home in SF than go to Atlanta. Ugh.

    Obviously he knows it's cold there, I'm not saying he didn't. I'm saying I think he has, throughout his career, seemed overwhelmed by the cold. He probably thought it wouldn't be a big deal. He was clearly wrong. He's awful in the cold and it's part of why he's bad in the playoffs. Guess that happens when you spend most of your career playing arena football.

    What a ridiculously exciting ending to that game... me & my brother both yelling at the television, amazed at what we we're seeing... it's just too bad Seattle (well, Carroll) ****** up at the end there by icing the kicker. Oh well, time to root for San Francisco.

    I am still kind of shocked at how much Seattle pissed that away. As soon as they scored that FG, my whole family was shaking our heads and saying there was too much time left on the clock. Evidently they didn't watch the Ravens game.

    Me & my brother had that some conversation, figuring Seattle could have burned some clock before running a play for Lynch to score.

    manning didn't exactly look awful to me. two mistakes. he made two mistakes. one, that should have been negated by a PI a lot earlier in the game that they pretty much overcame and that throw in overtime. other than that he played pretty well, so saying that he was clearly awful is a bit hyperbolic.

    I'll let the 0-4 record in playoff games under 40 degrees speak for itself. That's not coincidence.

    well, the texans game certainly started out well for the texans.

    the broncos as a team didn't precisely play that well rachel. nor was the play-calling terribly inspired. it was a team thing, not just one player. manning played fairly well. i'm not talking about the other 3 games, i'm talking about the last one.

    No. It didn't. Great start for the Patriots I'd say. 94 yard kickoff return and only a field goal? That's a win for New England.

    the very start was good. what followed after... not so much. although the texans D sure stepped up on that first drive.

    Yeah Aaron is really good at beating 40 year old quarterbacks with a career ending injury and 1st year rookies. it still dousn't change the fact that the season record was 1-1 and that was because they were at their respective fields. you won the postseason game because joe web had played 3 games in his entire career. plus you were at lambeu.

    Who beat the 49ers when they played them, and who lost to them twice? Don't get me wrong i'm not sure if ponder would have won but i'm pretty sure he had a pretty good hope.

    Normally my inherent bias against New England based sports teams would have me root against the Patriots today, but the Texans* don't excite me at all, and I think a Raven/Pats title game would be fantastic to see.





    *If the powers to be here in L.A. hadn't ****** up things in 1999, the expansion franchise that Houston got would have been awarded to Los Angeles... so that overrules my dislike of New England.

    First off, I'm a Giants fan, not a Packers fan, though I do have a soft spot for the Packers.

    Secondly if you're going to use the Joe Webb argument, you beat Alex Smith not Colin Kaepernick.

    Disappointed because I wanted to see a Seahawks-Niners showdown, but also happy because I think Atlanta has a better chance of beating the Niners, whom I loathe.

    i probably shouldn't be arguing considering like i said i started watching in the 2009 season. this is the first year i ever watched any game that the vikings were not in.
    i did want the seahawks and the bronco's to win :(
    my cousin is the biggest patriots fan though. i almost think he likes them more then the vikings.

    You know, it would be interesting if it came down to a Ravens/Falcons Superbowl, if only for the storyline of each team having a guy which both of whom have said their retiring after this year (Lewis for the Ravens and Tony Gonzalez for the Falcons) being in what would be their final game of their careers. Which team would send their man out a champion?

    And they would both be dark-colored birds.
