Extra for Week 6’s Colts-Redskins game. You can access his live chat
every week here: nbcsports.com/snfextra
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.
AskSNF: IS TOM BRADY BETTER THAN PEYTON MANNING?
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?
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
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.
