  1. hostile game for the who dats? it will be a blowout if johnson can score agianst baltamore can you see what colson and moore and bush and brees and henderson can do. it will notbe close.

  2. Forecast is calling for snow this weekend in Baltimore. If the Saints have to resort to the run this game is over, Sharper should be careful what he wishes for, the Ravens D is angry after Monday night’s game, and the Saints O isn’t known for their toughness. GO RAVENS

  3. Cameron Wake has been a beast all year. He leads the NFL in sacks and has been virtually unblockable…yet he is 5th in probowl voting in the AFC. This is why fan voting is dumb. It is a popularity contest, not a validation of a player’s skills/contribution. How many undeserving players are sent to thye pro-bowl? This is one area where the coaches/sports writers should have exclusive input. The deserving players should be recognized…not the popular players or the divas (unless they earn it on the field)

  4. Basically, the only thing for Packer fans to look forward to this weekend is that Clay might get to hit Brady a couple of times….

  5. “Bills coach Chan Gailey questions the intensity of rookie RB C.J. Spiller.”
    How about that, I called Spiller soft a couple of weeks ago and Bills fans went nuts.

    Can you hear me now?

    “Basically, the only thing for Packer fans to look forward to this weekend is that Clay might get to hit Brady a couple of times…”

    All he needs is one.
    One good hit from Matthews and Brady will crumble like a Girl Scout cookie.

  7. I can’t believe this idiot is allowed to even play football let alone get the most votes!!! Do you guys know what this S.O.B. did??? Now he wants a dog too?!?!?!?!?! No, you ruined your chance when you killed hundreds of innocent animals. You should be locked up for life, better yet just be put in a room with animal lovers for 5 minutes, you sick demented soul. Burn in hell VICK!!! ILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!!! I’m surprised people haven’t taken you out yet, seriously.

  8. I like that in the Lions section of the SI power rankings all that was talked about was brett farve. Farve wasn’t mentioned in the Vikings, packers or giants sections. No lions player was mentioned and neither was their third win of the season. It was all the BrettFarve
