AskSNF: Which nfl head coach do you think will be fired first this season?
PFTonSNF: Hard to say. Most of the guys on the hot seat won today, and McDaniels supposedly is safe.
AskSNF: What do you make of the McNabb benching?
PFTonSNF: Very surprising. Strong message to McNabb, at the risk of losing him.
AskSNF: Do you think the Jets are still the top team considering their schedule has not been as tough as first expected?
PFTonSNF: They won’t be the top team after scoring no points at home today.

PFTonSNF: Watch the Lions and the Raiders down the stretch.
AskSNF: what is your favorite horror movie
PFTonSNF: I still get freaked out by The Exorcist.
AskSNF: Any way Saints can win this game?

AskSNF: Carson Palmers last year in Cincy?
PFTonSNF: Lots of peoples’ last year in Cincinnati.

PFTonSNF: We do those every Tuesday on PFT Daily. Tune in. It’s free.
AskSNF: Will Jerry Angelo be fired?:
PFTonSNF: Possibly. He has only hired one coach as G.M. Conventional wisdom is G.M. gets two swings.
AskSNF: You hitting the schnapps yet? I’ll bet it’s scotch and splenda after halftime, right?
PFTonSNF: Actually I’ve decided to try schnapps and Splenda.
AskSNF: With Isaac Bruce’s jersey being retired today, where does he rank all time for receivers?
PFTonSNF: Between five and 10. Behind Rice, Moss, T.O., Marvin.
AskSNF: woah you dont think Marvin has game?
PFTonSNF: I think Marvin hasn’t played in like two years. And there’s no talk of him playing.
AskSNF: who starts at QB for Redskins next week
PFTonSNF: John Elway.
AskSNF: What percentage do you give Lovie Smith, Jerry Angelo & Mike Martz coming back next yr?
PFTonSNF: 9, 25, 0.
AskSNF: Is Suh the best DT you have ever seen? I think he is
PFTonSNF: Let’s not get carried away. He is good but he has a long way to go.
AskSNF: I’ve always been a Troy Smith fan so I’m bias, but did you see enough today that once they open the playbook he can be really good?
PFTonSNF: He played very well for a guy who joined the team a month ago.
AskSNF: Yo Florio…give it to me straight. Does Favre start next week or does the record end?
PFTonSNF: I think Favre will play next week.
AskSNF: Well Jerry Jones become the NFC’s Al Davis?
PFTonSNF: Possibly. In 10-12 years.
AskSNF: What QB would u want on your team

PFTonSNF: Keep winning at home and get one or two more on the road.
AskSNF: What gets you out of bed in the morning?

AskSNF: Do the Fins have a chance to win their division?
PFTonSNF: Yes, but they’ll need to beat Pats and Jets on the road.
AskSNF: Do you think that Donald Brown could be the next LT or AP
PFTonSNF: More fodder for folks who think refs favor Steelers. 15-yarder on Saints, nothing against Steelers for something that looked worse.
AskSNF: Do the Bucs have any legitimate claim to best team in the NFC or is it the Giants?
PFTonSNF: Bucs need to keep winning. They didn’t exactly beat the ’85 Bears today.
AskSNF: Who do you think is the best team in the afc
PFTonSNF: Steelers if they win, Patriots if Steelers lose.
AskSNF: At this point, do the Packers have a legitimate shot at winning it all assuming they don’t lose any more key players?
PFTonSNF: Shutting out the Jets will give them a huge confidence boost.
AskSNF: Who does Buffalo take with the first pick in next years draft?
PFTonSNF: Too early to tell. They’ve possibly found their quarterback.
AskSNF: how bout ………Dem RAIDAAAAS
PFTonSNF: D.P. did great Berman impression during FNIA when talking about the Raidaaaas.
PFTonSNF: Where are all the folks who think the fix is in for Steelers when a call goes against them?
AskSNF: what do you think about the titans
PFTonSNF: I think they need to beat 2-5 teams when they play them.
AskSNF: The Fins have beaten good teams and lost to very good teams. Why does no one take them seriously?
PFTonSNF: They should be taken seriously. They’ve lost to three teams that had three loses among them entering today’s game.
AskSNF: Are you suprised at how well Ben’s doing?
PFTonSNF: No. I thought he’d be doing even better.
AskSNF: Do you thing Plaxico Burress plays again in the NFL?
PFTonSNF: Yes. Next year.
AskSNF: Should the Steelers have gone for it on that 4th and 1?
PFTonSNF: Steelers were smart to take the three points in a scoreless game.
AskSNF: Why do people hate Jay Cutler?
PFTonSNF: Probably because he looks, acts, and plays like he just doesn’t care.

PFTonSNF: If Jerry Jones insists on being the G.M., he should go ahead and be the head coach.
AskSNF: Since Halloween is all about horror stories, how likely is the biggest horror story of all: an NFL lockout in 2011?
PFTonSNF: To quote Kramer doing a Cockney accent, “Not bloody likely.”
AskSNF: are the falcons for real
PFTonSNF: No. They are holograms.
AskSNF: As of now who are your starting QB’s in the pro bowl?
PFTonSNF: Rivers and Eli.
AskSNF: do you think the bills should give up so they can get first pick in draft?
PFTonSNF: You assume giving up would actually make a difference.
AskSNF: can the 49ers still win their division
PFTonSNF: Won’t be easy but, yes, they can.
AskSNF: YO Mike do you think Lovie Smith should still be caoching DA BEARS?
PFTonSNF: If they don’t make it to the playoffs, Lovie is done.
PFTonSNF: Saints got lucky they didn’t get flagged for helmet-to-helmet hit on Hines Ward.
AskSNF: Emmitt Smith was ranked the 28th greatest NFL player of all time. What do you think? Too high? Too low? Just right?
PFTonSNF: I think that’s too low. He’s the all-time leading rusher.
AskSNF: Are there any rumors about Bill Cowher?
PFTonSNF: He’s widely believed to be in play for 2011. It depends on whether he finds the right situation.
AskSNF: Hey mike, Which team will Logan Mankins end up with?
PFTonSNF: He’ll eventually report to Pats then leave next year as free agent.
AskSNF: will vikings make playoffs?
PFTonSNF: They need to finish 7-2 or better. After starting 2-5.
AskSNF: When will Thomas Jones’s age catch up to him? That man keeps trucking!
PFTonSNF: He didn’t have as much wear and tear when younger so he’s gotten a lot of tread left.
AskSNF: Figure Cowher won’t work for Jerry Jones. Any idea who will?
PFTonSNF: Marvin Lewis. He has suffered through worse than Jones for eight years in Cincy.
