8:14
AskSNF: wassup, this is fred from kansas, do you hink the cowboys have a chance tonight?
PFTonSNF: Only in the “Dumb and Dumber” sense.

8:15

8:16

PFTonSNF: Maybe the Ravens.

PFTonSNF: Well, it was only the Cardinals.

8:18
AskSNF: is oakland the cinderella team this year?
PFTonSNF: There are a few. Raiders, Buccaneers, maybe Browns.

8:19
AskSNF: Why isn’t the Lambeau Leap considered excessive celebration?
PFTonSNF: It was grandfathered into the celebration rule.

8:20
AskSNF: Who’s the best team in football? The Giants?
PFTonSNF: Possibly. Maybe. I’ve got a day to mull it over for the power rankings.


8:21
AskSNF: Who is going to win the AFC West?
PFTonSNF: Watch out for the Chargers.

8:24
AskSNF: Are you gonna play Call of Duty: Black Ops this week?

PFTonSNF: Rivers pulled a Peyton Manning today.

8:30
AskSNF: The missing piece of GB’s puzzle is rushing — what can they do?
PFTonSNF: Plenty of guys can move the chains. They need to commit to run game and block better.

8:32
AskSNF: Did Brad Childress’s job get saved today?
PFTonSNF: For a week at least.

8:35
AskSNF: Does todays awesome win with the Browns leave McCoy as the starter?

8:39
AskSNF: do you think favre will finish the season?Moss?
PFTonSNF: Favre yes. Moss who knows.

8:40

PFTonSNF: At least another four weeks. Possibly for the season depending on the record.

8:41
AskSNF: Are The Titans the favorite to win the AFC south now that they’ve got Randy Moss?

PFTonSNF: Raiders should be feeling good right now, but fear the Chargers.

8:46
AskSNF: who do you think will have a better year mccoy or bradford
PFTonSNF: Good question but for now Bradford. He has a real shot at going to playoffs. It’s a longshot for Browns and McCoy.

8:46
AskSNF: do believe that that this can be a super season for the steelers?
PFTonSNF: I did until they lost to the Saints. They have to convince me again.

8:48
AskSNF: when do you think was the last time clay matthews cut his hair?

PFTonSNF: Very and yes.

8:49
AskSNF: What’s that smell?
PFTonSNF: I don’t know. The Rock is cooking again.

8:50

PFTonSNF: I thought he was a viable candidate. In 809. When he was, you know, a rookie.

8:52

PFTonSNF: Freeman?

8:56
AskSNF: are the atlanta falcons the team to beat in the nfc south
PFTonSNF: Yes. Best record and they’ve beaten Saints and Bucs.

8:59
AskSNF: Why does Rodgers flash that championship belt? What has he won?
PFTonSNF: Maybe he does it with no belt because he has won nothing.

9:00
AskSNF: are the Browns a legit playoff contender
PFTonSNF: They have to run the table.

9:00
AskSNF: How do you feel about the Packers Clay Matthews for Rookie of the year?
PFTonSNF: He’s not a rookie. He’s not a rookie. One more time. He’s. Not. A. Rookie.

9:01
AskSNF: is randy moss a good pickup for my fantasy team now?
PFTonSNF: I’d wait on that one.

9:10
AskSNF: Is a defender allowed to hit a QB that slides at the end of a run?
PFTonSNF: No, but there’s a little leeway. If defensive player moves to make hit before QB slides, there shouldn’t be a flag.

9:10
AskSNF: How will the addition of Randy Moss affect the Tennessee Titans?
PFTonSNF: Depends on how they use him. Rodney H. and I will be talking about that in our weekly video.

9:11

9:19
AskSNF: why are the Cowboys so bad? What happened to them? Do we need a new Coaching staff?
PFTonSNF: Cowboys need a new G.M.

9:20
AskSNF: What will it take for the Browns to make the playoffs?
PFTonSNF: They have little or no margin for error.

9:23
AskSNF: Why do so many teams refuse to use punters as their emergency kickers? Surely that makes more sense than Suh kicking extra points?
PFTonSNF: Just because a guy can punt doesn’t mean he can kick.

9:25
AskSNF: When does the flex schedule begin?
PFTonSNF: Flex scheduling starts in two weeks.

9:27
AskSNF: Do you know Suh’s range for fg kicks?
PFTonSNF: Don’t know. But he wasn’t exactly accurate from 19 yards.

9:29
AskSNF: has any team that played a regular season game outside the U.S ever gone on to play in the super bowl?
PFTonSNF: Yes. Giants in 2007.

9:37

PFTonSNF: Ochocinco.

9:37
AskSNF: will Bush ad Pierre Thomas be healthy after the Saints Bye-Week?
PFTonSNF: Bush, yes. Pierre, don’t know.

9:42
AskSNF: How much worse can my Cowboys get
PFTonSNF: Not much.

9:43
AskSNF: Shouldn’t the Lambeau Leap be excessive celebration? Its annoying
PFTonSNF: It’s specifically exempt from the celebration rule. Grandfathered in.

9:44
AskSNF: Will Coach Wade Phillips get fired after this game?
PFTonSNF: Hell, he may get fired during the game.

9:46
AskSNF: The Raiders really proved them self today do you think there legit?
PFTonSNF: For now. Still a long way to go. Watch the Chargers.

9:46
AskSNF: How much do you like football?
PFTonSNF: More than baseball less than pizza.

9:47

PFTonSNF: There is no point in running the ball now.

10:02
PFTonSNF: People talk about “establishing the run.” But there is no point if you can’t run and always fall behind. Dallas needs to establish the D.

    Do u think Dan Henning is a little off on his playcalling?

  2. 67dave430 says: Nov 7, 2010 9:09 PM

    Was the hit on Collie illegal? What about the blow to the head call on Manning at the end of the game?

  3. Kyle H says: Nov 7, 2010 9:30 PM

    I am really amused by all the people who solicit Florio’s opinion.
    From what I have seen his opinions are as flawed as anyone’s.
    Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy this site. But I don’t see Florio as a football expert in the Collinsworth sense of the word.

  4. Philahoov says: Nov 7, 2010 10:13 PM

    @67dave Blow the head? He had 3 fingers on him, give me a break.

  5. pga5 says: Nov 7, 2010 10:57 PM

    @ Kyle H: I echo your opinion on being amused by people soliciting Florio’s opinion.
    It’s hard to understand why people take his opinion seriously. I do give him credit though. It’s nice to have a job where you have absolutely no expertise on the subject material and get fame/fortune for it.

  6. CRM0055 says: Nov 7, 2010 11:20 PM

    right? that was the most ridiculous call.

  7. Route36West says: Nov 8, 2010 5:18 AM

    “PFTonSNF: People talk about “establishing the run.” But there is no point if you can’t run and always fall behind”
    Thats the point Florio “establishing the run” means u want to make your team be able to run. If you could already run you wouldnt need to establish the ability to do it. That would be redundant.
    I do agree though there is no point in establishing the run if your already behind.

    ” I like the Packers in a rout. But, please, watch the entire game. There’s really nothing else on.”
    The Walking Dead was on at 10pm. No wait, that was a shot of the Cowboys sideline.

    We need to get a young guy here as OC. Someone who is creative and will put the offense in a position to score TDs and not FGs.
    3 rd and goal at the 1. Why not run it twice. You NEED a TD on the road. Polite is like 18/19 on short yardage situations. I’d give it to him twice.
    He’s a lock to score.
