    Ahhh...hooray for 2nd stringers...
    This week could be the end of the line for Brett Favre, Deion Sanders and Jerome Bettis (although you can still see The Bus in the playoffs after they stomp the Lions)...

    I think the Lions came is a bit closer than anyone thought it would be.

    I think Favre has one more year left... if, and only if, they give him a good supporting group.

    I think McNair will be back next year, but not with the Titans.

    McNair will be back with a different team...
    Favre should have retired at least 2 years ago, what happened to going out without desperately clinging too long, aka Jerry Rice syndrome...
    The Lions did do a little better than people anticipated, but lost none the less, and are still a franchise in complete disarray...
    6 straight wins for the Dolphins....Gus Frerotte for Hall of Fame...
    And the Ravens close out with a loss to the Brownies...way to back up that support, Billick...

    At some point, they need to look at the coach. Maybe not now, but definitely next year if they do not have significant improvement.

    The Falcons primary problem is the same as it's ever been...no WR talent...their only receiving threat at all is Alge Crumpler...
    I see that Tony Banks is in action now...how exciting...

    Yes, they have had some failures at that position (ie, Price), but the rookie looks good. Still, there is the problem of Vick's ability, or lack thereof, in getting the ball in their hands. I can imagine the problems of trying to build around a unique player, but after so many years you have to look at coaching, in addition to personnel.

    Today was a monumental failure on both sides of the ball.

    That was wild! Belichick is full of surprises. I still have not written off the Pats. I think they are the only ones who can stop Indy. I wish I could say that about my Steelers.

    And you have to love Dick Vermeil. Not afraid to blubber in public.

    So let me get this straight: you hate the Redskins and Cowboys in the NFL. You also hate USC, Ohio State, and Notre Dame in college football.

    We always hear about your hate but we never hear about your love. Are there any teams you actually root for or do you just root against teams?

    Favre was in this week when there a perfectly capable backup for him. I think this was his last game of his NFL career. While not that great of a season for the Packers, I think he's had one hell of a career. Hat is off to him.

    They need someone to get them the ball too. I'd rather keep Schaub and trade Michael Vick, before the rest of the league realizes he's a fraud.

    Well I say screw the Falcons and screw the Eagles!! They helped keep my Cowboys out of the playoffs. With nothing to play for, they looked like they had one foot already in the car ready to hit the gas and get the vacation going.

    All we needed was either Carolina or Washington to lose OR Tampa and Giants to lose. And they all freakin' WON!! crazy.

    Guess it wasn't time for my boys to shine yet.

    Next year will be something else. Look for Parcells to return for one last hurrah and the Cowboys WILL be in the Super Bowl XLI. Count it.

    All of which were highly unlikely... The third may have been a spiritual beating, but I'll take any season where the 'Skins beat the 'Boys three time :D

    You're going to blame the coaches because Vick can't get the ball to his receivers? One more season like this and people are legitimately going to ask whether or not Vick can cut it as an NFL quarterback. He's a talent, no doubt, but if his passing continues to suck AND his team doesn't win, they need to look at other options.
