Dear God the Chiefs are approaching Oakland Raiders 2006 level bad offense. And the D isn't doing much better, especially against the run (I do like the rookie corners). At least they have a great punter, which is vital for this team.

When are coaches going to stop with the calling timeout right before a last second field goal attempt? The Raiders would have won in regulation, but had to go nearly the whole OT because they did that.

Okay, the Chiefs are officially the worst team in Missouri again. Was Linehan THAT bad!?

I hereby adopt the Buffalo Bills as my team to root for this year, if only because they have MLB Kawika Mitchell, a guy I liked on the Chiefs. After watching 6 games with Pat Thomas at MLB, I hope that the Chiefs front office realizes how stupid they are.

Holy crap this might be the Cardinals year (to win the NFC West and get bounced in the Wild Card round)!

I realize that the Bears scored some points on special teams yesterday, but I thought the Vikes D was supposed to be reallty good.

Maybe the Chiefs can sign Rex Grossman next year and he and Brodie Croyle can have a contest to see who gets hurt the fastest.

Will the real Saints please stand up? Carolina too. And the Colts?

I have a bad feeling about the Titans. I feel as if I've seen this movie before. Oh yeah, they are the 90s Chiefs reborn! Great D, but do they have the O to win in the playoffs? By the way, did you realize I'm completely bitter and disgusted with the Chiefs right now!?

Why should you be bitter, as your coach plays to win the game. The positive side: The worse they do, the better the chance they decide to make a run at Cowher.
With a very difficult schedule coming up, it is not a good time for the 'bad' Giants to start to make an appearance. I thought they had disappeared after the playoff run last year, but they have been making an appearance the last few weeks.
Problem for Tennessee is if Vince Young tries to destroy the team. I'm actually hoping the Titans stay unbeaten for a while so we get unbeaten Titans vs. winless Lions on Thanksgiving. If that doesn't happen, combined with the Seahawks vs. Cowboys, it really makes it look like a craptacular Thanksgiving afternoon.
I'm guessing it was the coach with the Rams, and if the Cardinals ever remember they are the Cardinals, the Rams might have a shot at the division.

The best part of the weekend was when Fox switched to the Giants game because the Dallas game wasn't competitive anymore. That made me laugh an awful lot.

When are people going to realize that the Saints are the most overrated team in football? They've beaten one decent team (Tampa) and two terrible ones (Oakland and SF).

I love my Redskins, but one week I'd like to watch a game where I can relax in the fourth quarter instead of biting my nails.

It's funny how big of a turnaround Peter King has pulled on his Cowboys. Nothing makes me happier.



Hail to the Redskins!

You know that Chiefs D is bad if LenDale White can run 80 yards & not get caught.

Why hasn't Herm Edwards been fired yet? And while we're talking about bad defenses I shouldn't even have to mention the Broncos.

The worst thing is that he made the famous "You play to win the game" speech, but then down 27-0 in the in the mid 4th quarter he goes for a field goal on 4th and goal to make sure they didn't get shut out. I know there was no real chance they would come back, but you have to at least try to score the TD if you "play to win the game".

YES to Cowher. But the real problem is the front office. Carl Peterson and his buddies have to go.

Buffalo is 2nd, and Pittsburgh is 3rd.

The tiebreaker is best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference. 1.000 = 1.000 no matter how many different wins they have.

They only have 1 common game, Jacksonville (both beat them), so that's skipped. Next is Strength of Victory.

Buffalo beat teams that have a combined 11-20.
Pittsburgh beat teams that have a combined 10-21.

Buffalo wins the tiebreaker.

I'm going to have to stick with what I've got. I tend to follow the spirit of the rule, and possibly not the technicalities. At the end of the year, when the NFL will actually run any ties, they all will have 12 conference games and it won't matter. However, at this time Pittsburgh is two games better in the conference than Buffalo, and I think they deserve to be rewarded for that.

But at least I fixed Green Bay/Chicago before you saw it!

Not only that, but they did the same against each of those teams. Really makes it hard to decide bragging rights with my Bear loving brother.

Carl Peterson also, and maybe moreso.

I have a feeling there were a slew of coaches that would say the same about stealing signals too. What is amazing is how long this stuff can stay on the down low, especially these days.
