Well, please expand on how they're not playoff teams. I would imagine a self-proclaimed "sportsguy" would be able to analyze a few teams. Please, enlighten us.

It's the TVSG curse. Any team he says will be worth a crap generally isn't and vice-versa.

I think the Steelers and coach Tomlin deserve special mention. I am not a Steelers fan, but am an admirer of how that franchise is operated. They should just stick with Batch and Dixon the rest of the way, because the way their defense is playing, anyone could line up under center. The Steelers coaching staff constantly retools personnel, they don't sign people like Albert Haynesworth, they play a system oriented, team first design that puts their defensive players in position to make big plays. Players like Lawrence Timmons, who just go out there and put in 60 minutes of work, and keep their mouths shut. It's a refreshing scene.

Another play that stood out yesterday, and it was just the way the player handled himself. Did anyone watch the Broncos-Colts game, and the receiver just activated off the practice squad, Blair White, catches a touchdown pass, the first of his young career. What did he do after he scored? He tossed the ball to the referee. Can you imagine that! If more players conducted themselves in the same vain as Blair White, the league wouldn't be suffering from the myriad of image problems they currently have.
Whazzup Mike0421? Yea, I was at the game, had a clear view on the td catch. This guy might not get a lot of time behind Collie, Wayne, and co., but he will. The kid can play!

Wow, where do I began. Lol

The Raiders, 1-2, were supposed to be 2-1.

How does Janikowski, one of the most reliable kickers in the league, miss a game winner?

Could you imagine the thunderstorm in Oakland, CA?
