(Paul, this isn't aimed personally at you, ok?) :)

I am offended by that.

I cant really complain about the hit. Its unnecessary roughness, but I would be delighted if Merriweather and Sanders could do that for once.

I don't doubt that! But I'm now really confused why I thought it was the Jets!

Can't say I'm a fan of Clark's hit. However legal it might be it is well away from the action and against a player who at the very least is easing up. Okay, it is a lesson to remind yourself of where you are on the field, but I think it is a cheap shot in all honesty.

And given that Palace are on Sky next Monday I'm tempted to give Sky a call and pick up the sports channels again. Am 50-50 on it at the moment.

I think Welker goes down too easy ;)

I got nailed in the back of the helmet on Sunday by a lad who had come flying at me with his helmet (obviously from behind), after the whistle had blown. 2nd play of the game. So far, the dirtiest shot I've ever had... Illegal on so many levels.


So I gave a few out during the rest of the game. Great fun!

I know your joking, but I'm sure the Dolphins fans will agree with me on the resiliance of Welker.

He has taken some huge hits this year and in the past. Yet he gets up and plays straight away. According to reports, he wanted to get back out there but they refused as he was concussed. And we were losing at the time :D

I would go as far as saying, no Welker, no wins for the Patriots in the last 4 games. I think we could win without Moss, we have other players who can go long, obviously none as good as Randy but I dont think anyone is as good as him.

Sorry, wont mention the Pats until Sunday again ;)

Yeah! Go Danny.

Very interesting tactic by the Cowboys ahead of their big game in Pittsburgh. Resting a few of the older heads as training will do them no good at this stage of the season. I like the thinking to be honest and hopefully will pay dividends.

Ben & Elliott, did you hear the good and bad news about Sunday's game?

Bad news: Weather, 28 degrees F, with snow expected.
Good news: They're shutting the SkyDome roof. :lux:

Could start a good debate, though

Who is the toughest player in the NFL today?

I'm tempted to be biased and say Clinton Portis, as it's easier to list the limbs he's got that aren't injured, yet he stil throws himself at defenses every week

Ray Lewis always seems a real badass, for various reasons

I think there are a whole group of linebackers I wouldn't want to get caught sleeping with their wives, that's for sure!!

LaDainian Tomlinson. Oh wait.

But seriously, Anquan Boldin for me this year.

I would have taken the Bills in Buffalo in that weather.

But with a roof, there is no doubt that the Dolphins will win now.

More Goodell bias;)

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, speeding and driving without insurance after being pulled over by police last weekend in Hanover, N.J.

Capt. Shawn Waldron, the information officer for the Hanover Township Police, wasn't available for comment Thursday night and wasn't due back at the station until Friday morning.

Ellis played the day after the arrest in New York's 34-17 loss to Denver, and a team spokesman confirmed that he will play Sunday at San Francisco.

"I apologize to my family, the fans and the organization," Ellis said in a statement issued by the team Thursday night. "As a captain, I set a poor and selfish example for my teammates, as well as all NFL players. Although this is a pending legal matter, I understand that I have to be responsible for my actions."

This is believed to be Ellis' first offense, which means he won't be suspended by the league, but will be enrolled in the league's substance abuse program.

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement that he and coach Eric Mangini both spoke to Ellis about the incident.

"He is disappointed with himself and has apologized for his actions," Tannenbaum said. "Personal conduct is important and an area that we stress to the entire organization. Shaun has been a leader on this team and I am confident that he will handle this in the appropriate fashion. The legal process will run its course and the league will handle this matter."

Ellis has enjoyed a resurgence this season with a team-leading seven sacks, his most in four years. He was the 12th overall pick out of Tennessee in the 2000 draft and has 60.5 career sacks.


Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself in the right thigh at a nightclub last Saturday morning and was charged with illegal weapons possession, a felony that requires a mandatory minimum 3 years and a maximum of 15 years in prison if convicted. The Giants also fined and suspended Burress for four games, and placed him on the reserve non-football injury list, which means he won't be back for the playoffs.

Giants offensive tackle Kareem McKenzie was charged with drunken driving after a traffic stop on Nov. 14. A Breathalyzer test found McKenzie's blood-alcohol level was above New Jersey's legal limit of 0.08. He wasn't suspended by the team.
The same thing Kevin Faulk got a one game suspension for at the beginning of the season :grrr:

R Brown > C Portis.

Irrational bullshit again, Paul.

Try reading this bit and then consider other suspensions:

What he said. :p

Not sure - off the top of my head at least - who the toughest player in the NFL is. A few years ago I'd say the toughest QB was easily McNair. Slightly brittle, but always seems to suit up, play, and nearly always still score on a QB draw.

Apologies, I was too busy having a blazing argument on another thread to read it. ;)

Another one of my wacky questions ;)

Who is the best running back tandem in the NFL (no bias Phins fans;))

LT and Sproles?(Chargers)
White and Johnson?(Titans)
Williams and Stewart?(Panthers)
Brown and Williams? (Miami)
Turner and Norwood? (Atlanta)
McGahee, Rice and McClain? (Baltimore)
Barber, Jones and Choice? (Cowboys)
Jones-Drew and Taylor? (Jags)
Peterson and Taylor? (Vikes)
Bush, McAllister and Thomas? (Saints)
Jacobs, Ward and Bradshaw? (Giants)
McFadden, Fargas and Bush? (Raiders)
Parker and Moore? (Steelers)
Jones and Morris? (Seahawks)
Dunn and Graham? (Bucs)
Morris, Faulk, Jordan and Green-Ellis? (Patriots)

Now I want answers as I spent time writing that out ;)

I would go for the Titans as the best one-two punch although they are similar to the Panthers with Williams getting TD scores like White, but the Giants with the earth, wind and fire combination are the best there as a combination and force.

And finally, looking around on NFLUK and one other forum, some people were suggesting Wes Welker and Randy Moss as the best WR combo of all time.
That isn't even Moss's best combination for christs sake. Him and Cris Carter were far superior to what the Patriots have although in 4 years time I may think differently.

Tie between the Giants trio and the Vikes IMO.

By the way, tandem means "two" so I think you should have called them committees ;)
