For Your Consideration, I present the Raiders of Oakland and Los Angeles. lol

I should add, now that I was told by my uncle who was attending the Bears games back in the 50s and 60s with my gramps; that the Raiders modeled their "techniques" after the Bears and that the Bears used to do the same stuff all the time.:D

Da Bears beat the Viqueens today, 23-13. It was a close game until the third quarter, then the defense and special teams kicked it up a notch. Im disappointed in the offense, and moreso Grossman. Usually i toss blame on a line first, as they need to hold off the pass rush or create openings for the backs, but Grossmans been playing like an idiot these past two weeks. Way too many interceptions, hes lucky the defense is a monster and can make up for his errors, or else this squad wouldnt be much to talk about.

And congrats on the Browns beating KC today. I love to see Herm lose!!

38-10, Jets over the Packers. This is one of the few Jet games I have been comfortable in..of course last week against Houston it was like that too.
I am now enjoying how it feels to have a competent coach and supporting staff in your corner. Mangini is a class act who has definately made a difference in the entire organization.
For anyone wanting on the Gang Green bandwagon, come on in...there's room. Just remember the seat occupied by yours truly has always been filled. :)

i guess i was wrong about $aint Reggie, as painful as it is for me to admit. thanks for nothing 49ers!

i stand corrected about Grossman though.

so i learned that Champ Bailey is not just a cover corner but a complete corner because he plays the run. didn't we hear that just 2 weeks ago? :p

and the hardest of those positions to play is quarterback.

and how is it every week the game features a match-up of "two of the greatest minds in football?"

I enjoyed seeing the score keep going up for the Jets while i was watching the Bears and Vikings game. It seemed like whenever i checked they had added to it. I thought, J&H has got to be happy with that game.

Detroit looked like they were keeping the game close from what I could tell when they announced the scores on the radio while the Bears game was going on. Grossman had a 1.3 passer rating. Last Year coach Lovie pulled Ortman who had a much better passer rating and fewer interceptions. Now we just have to play for home field throughout the playoffs!

kool-aid killer
12-05-2006, 02:52 PM
Is pulling him really a viable option though? Maybe short term, but long term it still leaves Da Bears without a solid quarterback that they can build around. Either way, Grossman has got to start making better choices, i think hes the only question mark on both sides of the ball.

the rap on grossman is that he has poor mechanics not to mention too much of a riverboat gambler mentality (just like brett) and gets really rattled when blitzed heavily. of course it doesn't help the passing plays are always targetting berrian or muhammed on deep patterns.

with a defense as dominant as theirs, you really only need a "caretaker" sort of QB in order to win

Not really. It's more a matter of he doesn't know how or won't read a defense. He makes no progressions, he locks onto a receiver which is obvious to anyone who sees 2 games of his. If he looks left initially, he throws right. It was really obvious on the clips shown today on NFL Tonight.

Vince Young has actually done better at reading defenses than Grossman and he was knocked by everyone at the draft for his inability to read a defense while the qb out of Oregon St who was drafted later on who ran the same offense could make reads.

Oh, back on announcer rants. I tried watching a fantasy show that featured my "favorite" fox color commentator, Brian Baldinger. If one followed his fantasy advice, you must be giving your money away to people a lot. Comparing his picks to those found online at Yahoo, NFL.com, nbcsports.com, and ESPN, he started people those sites said sit. He said to sit those who those sites said to start. Could some one revoke his football expert card now please?

No, he's a long time Fox guy. This stems from when they had Madden, Millen, and Maas as their top three teams. I've made the argument here that Millen is a madden light, maas is Millen light, etc. So Baldinger is the fourth generation clone and long time hanger on. I just wish Fox now would go with the total conversion to ex-Dallas White Cowboys from the 90s (as opposed to ESPN's ex Dallas Black Cowboys from the 90s). It's a pain I have to endure living pretty much in the middle between KC, Chicago, Minnesota, St. Louis (4-5 hours) and distantly Green Bay or Denver (about 6-8 hours). You get a lot of C and D team coverage and not the national or best games.

Being a Seahawks fan, I grew up watching the NBC telecasts, Monday Night Football and the occasional CBS game, so those were the voices I was used to hearing. Once Fox began covering games, I didn't recognize a lot of the voices, though I may have known some of the names of former players. They just didn't have the distinct voices that I had enjoyed hearing as a kid.

Fox, at least the first 3 years, was essentially a direct lift of all the CBS talent. Course, the Seahawks still weren't an NFC team yet.

I laughed when you said Don Criqui (or just about anyone from when NBC had the AFC). How can one call a game with Marino or Elway's um, jock strap contents, in their mouths. Remember, John Elway did not win a Superbowl, Terrel Davis and Mike Shanahan's strategy did. Anyone could've been handing off the ball there.

I don't really remember the content of what they said. For me it's just the voices, and the memories and feelings of those times associated with them. That's why it's nice when I'm able to catch a game these days with Enberg or Criqui in the booth. There is a comfortable familiarity with them, and it seems there is more character to them. I can't even remember the names of the crew that call most of the games I've watched this year, and their voices don't have any distinguishing characteristics to make them stand out from the rest.

I'm talking about how networks/announcers really fall in love with certain players because of their talent. In reality, what actually happened is that these superstars agents effectively used the networks and local fans who won't question anything the team does into believing theses guys helped their teams win. That's a flat lie. If they would've taken pay cuts in their prime, accepted a lesser roll for their talent, demanded that they have some sort of offensive balance they could've won sooner. John Elway was exposed in every superbowl he played in and only when it was an illegal blocking scheme and a running back was put in his place by a coach who wasn't intimidated by the media image that was Elway, did he win. At the time, both Marino and Elway played in the inferior less competitive conference where a superstar on an unbalanced team could serve up the lamb to the NFC east or San Fransisco power. There was no salary cap yet (so maybe taking a paycut was not necessary, but would've showed ownership they were serious about winning), and they could've stock piled talent. They didn't want it or didn't make it possible for their teams to sign it. It was the superstar quarterback with their jock in the mouth of the media who ran the team. It sounds very much like the NBA and what happens after they decided to take that power away? Parity. Ratings went up. The NFL surpassed baseball as the national pastime etc.

Marino was a good quarterback, yes....However I will never forgive him for that fake spike bs he pulled on my team. Yeah he seemed slick doing it, but I've pretty much never liked the guy since then. Sure he was a divisional rival and we as jet fans are taught to hate them, but I always appreciated the talent he brought to his team (and yes I realize the Jets could have drafted him).

On another note, the Chiefs have not lost a home game in December in the past 2 seasons. Who is with me and says Herm finds a way to break that streak tomorrow?

i know he doesn't have a chance...i was just saying that for the sake of argument. and i agree with UKW that Colston would've been a lock had he not missed 2 games. and to think that he was what the 3rd to last pick???

however, if Vince Young keeps pulling off comeback victories the next 3 weeks, that would certainly swing a great deal of votes in his favor.

I hear you. One minute it looks like theyll blow them out, and soon after its a close game. Grossman wasnt bad, but Hesters kickoff return fumble really turned the tide in Tampa Bays favor. Plus, the last couple of Tampa Bay touchdowns (after the fumble, Galloways TD catch and run, Hilliards TD catch and run) were fast scores, they didnt use up much clock at all on those drives. Once it went into overtime, the Bears had the better possessions and capped it off with a Robbie Gould game winning field goal kick. A win is a win.

The announcers said that Tank Johnson has said that he doesnt believe the Bears will keep him in light of his recent run ins with the law. If so its too bad, but hes got to realize that the choices you make off the field can affect your career.

I can't believe this. There is still a remote chance the Bills could make the playoffs.


At 7-7, the Bills trail the New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars by only one game in the wild-card playoff race. The Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers also are 7-7, but the Bills are ahead of them with a better conference record.

If the Bills beat Tennessee on Sunday and then win at Baltimore, they would need the following scenarios to jump three of the four teams ahead of them:

• A Jets loss at Miami on Sunday: This would make the Bills and Jets 3-3 in the AFC East, but the Bills would finish with a better conference record. A Jets win and they edge the Bills with a better division mark.

• A Bengals loss at Denver on Sunday: Buffalo and Cincinnati are 1-4 versus common opponents and if the Bills win two and the Bengals split, they would both be 7-5 in the conference. The next tiebreaker would be strength of victory, which would favor Buffalo.

• The Jaguars lose one of their final two games: The Jags host New England on Sunday before visiting Kansas City. The Bills beat Jacksonville earlier this season, so they would win the head-to-head tiebreaker.

• Two Denver losses: If the Broncos split home games against Cincinnati and San Francisco they would match Buffalo's conference record but would be 2-3 versus common opponents compared to Buffalo's 1-4 record. If both teams finish 9-7, the Bills could only beat out the Broncos if Kansas City has the same record. The Chiefs would have a better division record than the Broncos but the Bills would top the Chiefs with a better conference mark.

What was not mentioned in the Bills' playoff scenario is that there also has to be peace in the Middle East, Jimmy Hoffa body needs to be located, and aliens land in my front yard.

Oh, and the caption for the picture should be: If the Bills can beat you guys, then surely this goldfish and I can take you.

The Colts have such a knack for doing well early on and in the regular season, only to choke in December and January. Its been like clockwork the past few seasons.

Man, the troubles for Cincinnatti just keep on coming. First all the off field problems with players and so forth, then today botching that extra point attempt that would have tied the game with Denver.

Oh, and is it Monday night yet?

Seahawks snatched another defeat from the jaws of victory, but still managed to clinch the division thanks to Arizona beating San Francisco. I think Deion Branch was trying to take some of the heat off of Jerramy Stevens by dropping all of those passes.

I don't watch a lot of sports, but my hometown San Diego Chargers just played an awesome, if scary 4th quarter and I was glad I got to see the last stretch of the game. That was a great touchdown pass of some 43 yards I think!

Pretty exciting last 4 minutes of a game! (I did see almost all the 4th Quarter though).

Anyway, Charger feaver has re-ignited around here but good!

The misery that has been 2006 Steelers football has finally been put out... of its? Hmm. We had a looooooooooooooong shot to make the playoffs (I believe it somehow involved the Chicago Cardinals and a drop-kick extra point...), but after gettin' whupped on by the dreaded TakeHisTeamForDaMoneys of Baltimore, I don't know if the playoffs (huh, PLAYoffs?!?) would have treated us too nicely.

How about Griese? He looked a lot more comfortable back there then Grossman has these past few games. Its nice to know that the backup is competent. The Lions played a heck of a game, they didnt look like a 2-13 team yesterday. Im hopeful that this next game against Green Bay no one is injured, id rather lose to the Packers than see a starter get knocked out for the playoffs.

No one ever talks about him since his teammates always overshadow him by piling up arrests or making up stupid nicknames for themselves but i want to show some appreciation to Rudi Johnson for being a stalwart on my SSG team this year. it seems like he's good for at least 1,200 yards and 12 TD's every year.

Because that is Mangini's style. Whoever is the best player for the position will be the one getting the most work. Starting the season it was Barlow, then Barlow and Washington, then Houston and Barlow and Washington, etc. He plugs in the players who contribute the most that week.
It is like that at all the positions. I think its great, and so far it is working very well.

Having a "running back by committee" approach helps, because you get guys more rest during games and can have more competition for a roster spot.

Mangini did this with everybody, including Chad. During camp Chad had to compete with Patrick Ramsey for his job....everyone had to work hard to play.

That's why I've never liked having a bench in fantasy leagues. Everyone on the roster should count. My first introduction to fantasy sports was reading the official 1983 Rotisserie Baseball book. That was the origin of fantasy sports as we know them today. The first time I actually got to participate in a fantasy league was in a football league a friend set up in high school, and it was frustrating to have to decide which players to use. All the leagues I'm in with people at work are set up that way too.

MSP, i didn't mean that it was frustrating to decide on lineups but rather that it's frustrating when Mike Shanahan and Eric Mangini constantly switch their starters at RB. i actually like having a bench in fantasy football and i love the challenge of deciding which players have the better matchups.

DENVER (AP) — Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in downtown Denver early Monday morning, police said.

Team spokesman Jim Saccomano said police called him about 3 a.m. Mountain Time from the scene of the shooting and told him three people had been shot and that Williams had been killed.

Saccomano said he spoke with coach Mike Shanahan and others in the organization.

"Complete shock. We're speechless. It takes words away. A terrible tragedy," Saccomano said.

Hours before the shooting, the Broncos lost to San Francisco 26-23 in overtime, eliminating them from the playoff race.

True. That game was disappointing. Sure, the Bears didnt need the win, but it wasnt pretty watching Grossman (and even Griese to a lesser extent) struggle againts an average NFL team. Grossmans going to be starting their playoff game, but if he struggles look to see Griese after halftime. I just cant believe how they played with no passion or desire.

NEW YORK:New York Jets quarterback Chad Pennington has been named the N-F-L's Comeback Player of the Year by The Associated Press.
Pennington played all 16 games for the first time in his career after undergoing two rotator cuff surgeries over an eight-month span. He threw for a career-high three-thousand-352 yards and 17 touchdowns in leading the surprising Jets to a 10-and-6 and a berth in the A-F-C playoffs.

Pennington missed the final 13 games of last season after injuring his shoulder against Jacksonville. He helped the Jets reach the divisional playoffs the previous year before undergoing his first rotator cuff surgery.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Cincinnati signal-caller Carson Palmer also received consideration for the award.


Congratulations Chad!!

LJ has like 30 yards for the game, Trent green can't throw worth crap, no first downs the whole first half, etc...yet Herm stays with the same offensive scheme, never puts in Damon Huard, then he just stands by all cavalier because he doesn't really care. I mean after all this is his best friend he is playing against, which he said afterwards to Dungy "you win this thing"....Herm didn't prepare them at all, and it was evident.

Now Chefs fans finally start to see the reality me and other Jets fans had to endure for 4 years:

He's been holding all year apparently. Since he started out as the backup QB, that was his job. Backup QB's and punters tend to be the holders now. I believe the announcers said that Plummer was the only starter that was a holder, but he's not the starter anymore.

I'm not wanting to argue about a team I hate but that snap looked perfect. Romo caught it perfectly but when he went to put the ball down it fell out of his hands.

I understand that, but he is the Starting QB now. I think the only reason he should have been the holder is if they wanted to do some trickery, which they did, though it was unintentional. I actually thought Romo was going to rush the ball into the endzone until he was tackled from behind. Oh well, I am not a Dallas fan but I thought they would be a better/more exciting team to face in the playoffs instead of the Seahawks who are all injured.

An 0-2 day for New York. I was kind of pulling for the Giants. Those road uniforms they have are one of my favorite uniforms. That's even one of my favorite outfits I wear to work - gray pants, white shirt, blue and red tie.

This means the Seahawks must return to Chicago, the site of a thrashing they received on national TV. I'm thinking they might actually have a better chance against Chicago than against New Orleans since Chicago's offense hasn't been as explosive as they were early in the season.

So, of the 16 possible Super Bowl combinations remaining, only NE vs Chicago and NE vs Philly have occurred before.

Romo has been a holder since 2004. they probably don't have anyone that could do it better than him on the roster.

TO is due a $3 mil bonus in March which means he could get cut before then.

You know what guys, as dissappointed as I am with today's loss, there is still plenty to be optimistic about for the Jets.
First of all we now have a smart, x's and o's guy as our coach who knows how to get the most out of the talent on the roster. Mangini comes from that Belicheck system of utilizing the right personnel at the right positions. Already it has paid off on both offense and defense, as the Jets have been much better on both sides of the ball.
Another good sign is the fact that we are 25 mill under the salary cap. Only one player is a free agent this year and that will be taken care of quickly. We have the resources to help strengthen our defense (hopefully our secondary) and bring in some free agents to help improve the efficiency. Plus with another solid draft which I am sure we will have, things are going to be just fine.
The Jets are on the rise, and the GangGreen will be at full power again in the 2007 season. And dammit I am happy about it. :)

I've actually kind of liked the Saints for a long time. In 1978 they were 7-9 and in 1979 they were 8-8, so I was kind of hoping they would finally break through in 1980. However, that was their dismal 1-15 season. They were 4-5 in the strike shortened 1982 season, and 1983, 1984 and 1986 brought 8-8, 7-9 and 7-9 seasons. The 1987 strike season brought them their first winning season at 12-3 but they got thumped in the playoffs by the Vikings. It was kind of weird because as a kid I was Vikings fan and here I was rooting against them. They were .500 or better through 1993, but that only brought three trips to the playoffs and zero wins there. They then had couple 7-9 seasons followed by even worse seasons through 1999. They made the playoffs in 2000 and got their first playoff victory, but then lost to the Vikings again and hadn't been back until this season.

The Giants had a "move" they did earlier in the year. They would act as if they shot a basketball. When teams started to bust them up during the midseason, the other opposing players would mock them by "shooting" also after they made plays against the Giants.

Baby Bears had a close game against the Patsies in Foxboro during the midseason. I think the Bears can take them if they meet up again.

You see the punt/kickoff returns the Pats were getting against the Colts? I like Hesters chances to run on them. If the Bears offense can just get an average game from Grossman, they should be good. It all comes down to how good the offensive line plays. If theyre good, Grossman will have time to throw and the backs will have holes to run through.

We are quite a bit more humble than that.;) We may be rabid fanatics and real critical of our team but I think a number of us try to set ourselves apart from the sports trash talkers. At least I do.

Brady and Manning are pretty good friends so i'm sure he didn't just trot off the field into the locker room w/out shaking hands.


I saw that on the highlights this morning. I was watching the celebration in between PC business, so I guess I had missed it.


The only good thing with the Bears winning is we won't have to listen for the next two weeks about how the city of New Orleans has rallied around then team in the wake of Katrina.

I wonder what Old Orleans thinks about the Saints???

Man, that seems like quite a rude thing to say. The city of New Orleans DID rally behind the Saints since the beginning of the season and while I'm a Bears fan, had the Saint made it to the Super Bowl and won, I would've found it to be a very emotional win after all the horror they went through. I would think that the city of New Orleans is very proud of their team's accomplishments. Why wouldn't they be?

I just hope with this win the Bears can finally earn some respect from critics. EVERYBODY had the Saints over the Bears, but they proved they can pull out wins on great teams. And as I told my pal, this wasn't just a "win" it was a 25 point win. It's gonna be great watching PTI and ATH tonight to see some "experts" eat their own words. :thumbsup:

Onwards to the Super Bowl! :love: :love: :love: :love:

But the real question is would you have cried as St. Reggie ran into the End zone?
:p

The Bears success has ALOT to do with Grossman. which one will show up? The sloppy 1.3 or 0.0 QB rating one or the 1/2way decent one that showed up yesterday? The worse he is the longer the D stays on the field and tires out, which if they tire out, Marv, Wayne and crew will be down field qucikly.

That's a great nickname for Mr. Bush but i believe the proper spelling is $aint or $t. :p

Just saw where Parcells retired. Maybe now he can live a somewhat happy life as opposed to being sad and depressed on the sidelines.

I was glad to see the Colts come back, but I thought Brady was going to make that last minute winning drive. Didn't expect him to toss an INT at the most critical part of the game like that.

I guess I'll pull for the Bears in the big game.

According to the Buffalo News, Willis McGahee in did an interview with Penthouse magazine and he suggested that the NFL should move the Bills to Toronto so he can have a better social life. It's not like he's fathered 3 kids with different mothers already. The writers in Buffalo seem to think it's time for the Bills to trade him and find a new RB. He has one year left on his contract and his agent is Drew Rosenhaus. The paper also said something about the Bills targeting Chicago's Lance Briggs if they don't resign him.

I don't think it's a matter of the horror they went through, it's more like the horror they are GOING through. Rebuilding that city appears to be a huge challenge with so many people still "displaced", escalating crime, etc, so I find myself agreeing with JimJam's opinion that it's annoying to hear about the Cinderella season of the Saints when that city has real problems to deal with that can't really be eased by a football game. If it gives people a few hours of escapism from their troubles then that is nice but it's only a fraction of what they have to deal with so I am also sick of hearing about it in such mystical terms. I don't think that's rude, it's just being realistic. :)

If my house was flooded out and my life was in shambles, personally I wouldn't care about the achievements of a pro sports team. If it soothes someone's pain for a bit then that's fine but some people make this out to be much more than it is (I saw Terry Bradshaw milking it yesterday lol ).

:)

P.S. go Bears but only because I am not a Manning fan. :crazed: :crazed:

The only thing Manning "deserves" is forehead reduction surgery. :rolleyes:

I don't understand the deserve talk...if he deserves one, he'll get one. It is still a team sport, too.True, no one really deserves anything, you have to earn it. The thing is that so often you have players that retire as one of the all time greats at their position, but there is always that qualifier, "but he never won a championship." Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton and Warren Moon have tons of all time records, but no Super Bowl victories (though Moon led Edmonton to 5 Grey Cup titles). If Michael Jordan had not been part of 6 titles, then maybe he would rate no higher than George Gervin. The fact that it is a team sport means that a lot of great players never get to win a championship. So, when you have a guy like Peyton Manning, who seems like a decent guy as well as being one of the best in the league, a lot of people will be pulling for the Colts because of that. An additional factor here is that his dad was also a pretty good quarterback, but played for losing teams his entire career. Plus, it makes for a good story. Someone rebounding from all of the past playoff disappointments to finally win a championship.

I'll bet Parcells is just as surly around the house :p

I fear that Mr. Jones is really going to mess things up and Dallas will be lucky to get even a Dennis Green as coach. but he'll probably hire a puppet coach and keep TO :cry:

Parcells isn't done yet I am willing to bet. He said the same thing when he left the Jets in 99 and yet he came back. Give it maybe a season or so, you will see him involved in some type of football even if its not being a head coach.

Oh Lord...no way man!! You think he had trouble with TO, imagine if he had to deal with that team out there and all the freaks that are involved!! Wow that would be the death of Billy for sure. :)

heck no! the Arizona Cardinals will win the Super Bowl against the Texans before that happens.

Al Davis only hires puppet coaches and doesn't seem to like to allow his coaches too much input on personnel.

what's wrong with giving $aint Reggie the bird???? what do you think i've been doing for the past 3 years? :thumbsup:

edit: too late! Oakland has hired Lane Kiffin, U$C's offensive coordinator as their new puppet -err head coach. congratulations Lane, you made the right choice!

Raiders just hired Monte Kiffin's son, Kyle to be their next coach. Monte is an assistant on the Buccanneers. ESPNNEWS said it was a 5 year deal.

Hey Lois :p , i already beat you to the story. and you got your facts wrong, the new raiders coach is Monte Kiffin's son but his name is Lane and as i mentioned, he is the U$C offensive coordinator. (which means i'm pleased to see him leave)

Bobafrett, I noticed you have "going to Miami for the Super Bowl" as your location now. Are you really going or are you just putting that there in support of your team?

Come on now, I work at Wal-Mart, it would cost me a years wages to go to Miami during Superbowl weekend. I had Will Smiths "Going to Miami" playing in my head, since this radio show I listen to drills it into my skull. I wish I was going to Miami, but I will be watching the game at home. :cry:

GO BEARS!

I had to ask, still you have alot to be excited about.

If the Jets were to get to the Superbowl I would find a way and do my damndest to get to that game. Hell I would put a kidney on ebay. :)

Why would Frett travel that far just to watch his team lose ? :D

I predict The Colts win in 6 games, 4-2, but I hope Da Bears can make a series out of it. :(

Good luck, Frett! :)
