PFTonSNF: Hello. Howdy. Aloha. Ciao. I’m going to wolf down some grub while getting this rolling.

PFTonSNF: Alex Flanagan reports Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he won’t be making any coaching changes.

AskSNF: Who’s number one: the jets or the steelers?
PFTonSNF: Jets are still the top team in my book.

AskSNF: Who will win the AFC west?
PFTonSNF: Does anyone want to win it? They all lost today.

AskSNF: Do you think this may be the year that Kyle Orton has come into his prime given hte level his success so far this year?
PFTonSNF: Orton is much better, but I can’t call him a “franchise quarterback.” I just can’t.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio Hey Mike, what do you think, redskins got a chance?
PFTonSNF: Under the Dumb and Dumber standard, yes. They have a chance.

AskSNF: Chiefs still the class of the AFC West?
PFTonSNF: It’s arguably like being the healthiest man in a leper colony.

AskSNF: How lon will Bob Sanders be out?
PFTonSNF: Sanders won’t be back until December at the earliest.

AskSNF: Are the patriots part of the elite?
PFTonSNF: In the immortal words of Rocky Balboa, “Absolutely.”

PFTonSNF: Great take from Rodney Harrison about the importance of suspending defensive players for illegal hits. It’s only way to send the message.

PFTonSNF: Redskins LB London Fletcher has played every game since entering the league in 1998. That’s very impressive for a defensive player.

AskSNF: Since the on-air discussion will likely focus on Manning & McNabb, will you periodically type Favre’s name so he won’t feel neglected?
PFTonSNF: Yes. Favre.

AskSNF: Are the Vikings still on life support with only 190 yards of offense?
PFTonSNF: No. They won, every other team in the division lost. They are in the thick of things.

AskSNF: With the cowboys loss, do you think Wade Philips will be fired this week?
PFTonSNF: Jerry Jones says no. Which could mean yes.

AskSNF: Is Bob Sanders still worth the Colts’ time considering he rarely plays a game?
PFTonSNF: I think the Colts fear that if they dump Sanders it will come back to haunt them when he signs elsewhere and stays healthy.

AskSNF: What did you think of the hits by James Harrison today? Well I realize he will probably receive a fine do you really they it is deserved?
PFTonSNF: One was legal one was not.

AskSNF: Are the Steelers now the class of the AFC?
PFTonSNF: Jets are still the top of the conference.

PFTonSNF: Yes. But neither are better than Izzy Mandelbaum.

AskSNF: Can the 49ers climb back to finish the season at .500?
PFTonSNF: Can they? Yes. Will they? Not likely.

AskSNF: Are these official fancy-dancy NBC chats as fun as doing it in the basement of the Florio home through the website back in the day?
PFTonSNF: No, because they frown on me wearing only boxers.

AskSNF: You still sure Tom Brady is better?
PFTonSNF: Correction. Peyton is better than Brady. And Izzy Mandelbaum.

AskSNF: Do you think the Steelers are going to the Super Bowl?
PFTonSNF: Right now, Steelers or Jets.

AskSNF: The Eagles QB controversy….do they now have one?
PFTonSNF: They should have one. And we can’t believe anything Andy Reid says.

AskSNF: Is Tony Romo on the Hot Seat along with Wade Philips?
PFTonSNF: Tony Romo should be on the hot seat simply for that hat he wears after games.

AskSNF: do the rams have a shot at the wildcard, or maybe even taking the nfc west division this year?
PFTonSNF: The Rams’ best shout will be to win the division, not wild-card.

AskSNF: Does the emergence of Ivory mean that Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas will have their touches reduced even more?
PFTonSNF: I could see Ivory becoming the Mike Bell and the Saints using all three.

AskSNF: Do you find yourself distracted watching the NLCS in the background?
PFTonSNF: What is NLCS? Another new cop show?

AskSNF: why do you hate brett favre so much?
PFTonSNF: Why does criticism of Brett Favre mean that I “hate” him?

AskSNF: Where does Jon Gruden coach next year?
PFTonSNF: Cleveland?

AskSNF: 49ers Owner still says they’re going to come back and win the division and make the play offs, what do you think about that?
PFTonSNF: I think he should never say that.

PFTonSNF: It depends on how long the other two are out and how McCoy does moving forward.

AskSNF: LT looks amazing thus far, does he keep this up?
PFTonSNF: That’s the big question. But if he wears down maybe Shonn Greene will step up.

AskSNF: If the Cowboys are losing at the half next Monday, will Jerry walk into the booth with a suitcase full of money and walk out with Gruden?
PFTonSNF: No. Jones wants a coach that won’t try to run the show.

AskSNF: will bill cohwer will coach cowboys ext year ?
PFTonSNF: Again, Jerry Jones wants someone who won’t rant to run the show.

AskSNF: What working or retired coach would both want to ‘not run the show’ in Dallas, but be good enough to win a Super Bowl?
PFTonSNF: One guy: Tony Dungy. But he’s not coming back to coaching.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio cowher to the panthers?
PFTonSNF: Panthers won’t want to pay want Cowher is going to want.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio Can you tell me what exactly caused the rift between Mike Shannahan and the Broncos owner Bowlen?
PFTonSNF: Bowlen simply decided it was time for a change.

AskSNF: Who you like between the Titans and Jaguars tomorrow?
PFTonSNF: Titans, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Jaguars win.

AskSNF: Who is the most underrated player in NFL history?
PFTonSNF: Martin Gramatica.

AskSNF: Does Tom Brady’s mullet need to go?
PFTonSNF: He’s starting to look like Sunshine from Remember the Titans. I hope he doesn’t try to kiss the guy from Scrubs.

AskSNF: What are the Cowboys going to do?
PFTonSNF: Not make the playoffs?

AskSNF: Does the 49ers winning today get Coach Singletary off the hot seat and put Coach Cable on?
PFTonSNF: No and yes.

AskSNF: Mr. Mike are my Titans gona make playoffs?!
PFTonSNF: Welcome to the chat, Bud Adams!

AskSNF: Who has the coolest name in the NFL?
PFTonSNF: I’m partial to King Dunlap. Primarily because I think my tires have the same name.

AskSNF: What do you think of the Seahawks?
PFTonSNF: I think it’s about time they won a road game against a team other than the Niners, Cardinals, and Rams.

AskSNF: What do you think goes on at the bottom of those “scrums”?
PFTonSNF: Shaun Smith could shed some light on that issue.

PFTonSNF: He was in a boot after the game. Early reports aren’t promising, but nothing sure yet. They have NE next week.

AskSNF: If Jay Cutler is actually killed on the field, could Mike Martz and Mike Tice be charged with criminal negligence?
PFTonSNF: Cutler hold some responsibility too for holding the ball.

PFTonSNF: McNabb has looked erratic at best this game. That means he’s due for a great play.

PFTonSNF: Redskins giving up almost nine yards per passing attempt. McNabb throwing for less than 5.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florioany word on the injury to zach follett from Detroit?
PFTonSNF: Yes, he said he was doing OK. Here’s the post at PFT: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/910/10/17/zack-follett-says-hes-ok/

AskSNF: Who will be the eagles starting qb after their bye week?
PFTonSNF: Andy Reid says Vick is still his quarterback. I strangely believe him.

PFTonSNF: Because we rock.

PFTonSNF: Oh my. That was an ugly kick by Vinatieri. Has been excellent on field goals before tonight.

PFTonSNF: That last kick from Vinatieri looked like a Vanderjagt attempt in the playoffs.

AskSNF: What’s up with the Chargers? Do you think they make a run (AGAIN) this year or has inconsistency caught up with them?
PFTonSNF: They are in the right division to recover, but have to beat the Patriots to avoid 2-5.

AskSNF: What would you consider to be the best play in NFL history?
PFTonSNF: The Dwight Clark catch.

AskSNF: Yo Mike, DeSean Jackson from Cal looks strong. Do you think he will be one of the best W.R In NFL History when his carrer is done?
PFTonSNF: If he takes more hits like he did today his “carrer” could be done sooner rather than later.

AskSNF: What is up with the NFC this year? Nothing has been happening the way any

one expected.
PFTonSNF: And that’s why we love the NFL.

AskSNF: how many times do i have to ask a question to get it answered?
PFTonSNF: A few more times.

AskSNF: any word on why Haynesworth was benched tonight? and do you think his is getting out of hand?
PFTonSNF: I think Redskins wanted to keep him healthy in the event they trade him.

  1. What should Jerry Jones do with the Cowboys? All is just about lost for this season. Should he pull the trigger if he had a replacement all lined up? I would love to see Gruden.

  2. What kind of impact do you think that possibly not having a league next year has on Jerry Jones firing his coaching staff? It’s tough to convince an elite coach to sign a contract when he may not even be coaching.

  3. I’m a lifelong Bears fan and I want to know what are the chances of trading Jay Cutler back to the Denver Broncos for Kyle Orton?

    damn sask99, what’s that all about? LMAO
    this new chat is only available in the US
    the old one was for the whole world
    florio s u c k s c o c k

  5. It’s nice to see Chris Collinsworth still has a man crush on someone. Payton, he wants you bad! The things he would do for you.

  6. Dear Florio,
    I hate you and I wonder who is taking care of Florio Jr. on Sunday nights while you chat aimlessly and watch football. Therefore, I wish for you to know that I will be calling Child Protective Services to request that they make a visit to your home/lair.
    Somebody who prefers a Rosenthal Sunday Night Chat

  7. I’m a lifelong Bears fan and I want to know what are the chances of trading Jay Cutler back to the Denver Broncos for Kyle Orton?
    Only if Orton brings Denver’s offensive line with him, well we should keep Kreutz.

  8. If Dungy was as good as everyone thinks he would still be coaching. He’s mediocre unless he has a HoF QB. He got out while the getting was good.

  9. Florio – tell the truth! Why are you hiding Carlos Rogers’s hands and when will you give them back?

  10. Saskatoon is a horrible, dirty place filled with fat illiterates! Why should they be able to view our chats?
