This was hilarious. I would have put it in a Madden thread, but there isn't one.

At one point, the Titans managed to tackle Bo at the 2. This interested me, because I thought I might be able to recreate his goal-line jump into the end zone during his Auburn days. You want to know something? Sliding a defense's Strength rating all the way down to zero tends to take a lot of drama out of the goal-line stand.

What a surprise. The NFL has one roughing the passer rule for a piece of shit, fake good guy, grubby, hayseed QB and all other QB's.

The Ahmad Brooks tackle on Brees fine was a bit baffling. I haven't read an explanation, was it to back the referee and the penalty call? If no fine they would be disagreeing with the penalty call.

Costly call in more ways than one...

No, they ended up fining Brooks. The guy that yanked Matt Ryan down by the face mask probably won't even get a slap on the wrist and Brooks get busted for making a good tackle.

Yeah, I know, they fined him $16,000.

Apparently Ray Lewis is going to pay some of it...

Oh, I misread your comment. But they didn't have to fine Brooks because they said he started at the chest and his arm "slid up to the head".

The same bullshit suspensions and fines are happening here in Australia with AFL. Players suspended for nothing more than being in the wrong spot at the wrong time, accidental or in some instances head contact initiated by negligent victims are resulting in suspensions and fines for the "guilty" player.

Paranoia...

The winner of the Titans/Raiders game will move into the #6 spot in the playoffs. #ThatsWhyTheAfcSucks

**** all... :D We're poor!

Panthers now 8-3 so at least we can't have a losing season this year. :o I would take 10-6 this year in all honesty.

We have Buccs, Falcons, then Saints x2, so who are our other two against?

Just the Jets.

Canadian TV executives and advertisers crying in their beers for the second half of the Grey Cup.

The game is a rout and Brady vs Manning is about to start. There will be more people in Canada watching the weekly curling highlights show than the 2nd half of the Grey Cup.

Congratulations to Peyton, Wes and the Broncos!

Moreno likes cold weather and wind, Manning doesn't.

Meh, Dolphins got a challenge that shouldn't have been ruled on a key third down. Panthers victory, streaky though it was after a first half from poohville, owed more to a ballsy 4th and 10 from Cam and Smitty on the final drive.

I'd love it, love it if we beat those greazy Saints.

Latvian Eagle 25-11-2013 12:49 PM

I reckon 11-5 at least is doable (would love 13-3 though!). Would it be enough for a Wild Card place?
