Stedman Bailey probably done with football according to Jeff Fisher.

As soon as you think one team will pull away (Giants) or one team is done (Cowboys) they prove you wrong in that division.

Still think whoever wins it will get smoked in the playoffs.

I cannot imagine we will be the team to get into the post season but anything can happy. Agree though, we will get smacked if we do. Crazy how important a starting QB is to a team, even if it is Romo as we have found to our detriment.

One of the reasons the NFL is exciting I think. I mean look at us... 12-0, what did we finish when we got first pick for Cam like 4 years ago... 1-15 or 2-14 or something.

I enjoy watching the Panthers, probably the team I would like to see go on and win it this season. It has been compelling following the journey since drafting Newton.

Seeing as my other favourite teams (Chargers, Browns, Rams) all have little or no chance (I believe the Browns are the first team officially eliminated from the play offs!!!! :moo:) plus the Eagles being dire but still in with a chance seeing as the East being so crap!!! I think that is a good call once the Eagles have no chance .... Would be happy for the Panthers if they won it but of course the Gunts won the whole thing a few years age with a 9-7 record!!!! So you never know... Wouldn't it be funny if the winner of the NFC East went on to win the whole thing!!!! :p:vader:

I think I'm right in saying that in addition to their own record, the Patriots were unbeaten all season long?

Cowboys to beat unbeaten Panthers in the SB. You saw it here first. Unless it's impossible due to the conferences or something. In which case, no.

My God.
Recorded the Dallas game and just watched it after work.
Shocking game until the last 90 seconds.
Dallas D looking good. Dan Bailey a beast. Offence poor again but congrats to Witten for 1000 catches.
Can we do it?
Can we?

I thought it was a good coaching performance from Kelly. He picked on Freeny with Sproles over and over again. He kept it simple, Bradford wasn't great, but when he did have to make a throw, he made it.

Hopefully it puts to end all this phoney media talk about Malcolm Butler being a great CB, because he's average but learning.

Yet all that and the D only conceded 7 genuine points. Punt Block TD. Punt Return TD. 99yd INT Return TD. The ridiculous rugby kick left a short field for a TD. One big drive.

And on offense, they were struggling more than ever as they even pulled the Brady reception out of the playbook... which I'd much rather they'd saved for another day.

Can't wait for Gronk to come back. Transformational player. Offense goes from top 2-3 to bottom half without him.

Agree, big play for a bigger day.

Just watched the Cowboys win in full. That is a real ballsy win that especially with the way our season has been going. Dez doing what he does best and making the calls by the officials difficult at times too! I have to say, I was in stitches when Jackson did what he did on the punt return, has always seemed too cocky for his own good but fair play to him coming back at us with the TD. Would I be saying that if it wasn't for Dan Bailey? Probably not ...

And there I was thinking the Premier League didn't care about its fans. Eagles - Cardinals game has been moved for tv less than 2 weeks before the game, and has royally ****ed my travel plans

WHO EVEN WANTS TO WATCH THE ******* EAGLES ON TV

How has it messed you up?

Had a coach booked back to New York at 7.15pm, but that was only $15 each. The real problem is that we have a flight back from JFK at 8.30am!

So now we either leave the game early to get a train back for an extra $55 each, get a coach that gets us back to Manhattan at 4am, or find a taxi service for roughly the same cost as the train, which is what I'm currently trying to do!

Had the similar problems with college football games. After the first three weeks of the season they announce the kickoff times 12 days before (on Monday afternoons) except later in the year they can pick two games per conference which they can wait until 5 days before based on results.

Annoying when KO could be anytime from 11am to 8.30pm and you've no idea if you should be staying the night before or the night of the game.

He looked really good in the final four/five games last year but seems to have regressed this year now they aren't asking him to do as much.

I'm only fairly new to the sport, so forgive if i am misssing something, but up until last weekend they are joint leaders of their conference? So he can't have regressed that much?
