  1. Fans at Gillette sitting in back of the Patriot bench claim Pepper Johnson and Haynesworth had to be separated on the sidelines after that Jacobs play and Belichick even had to get involved to calm things down.
    Haynesworth never saw the field after that incident. Stay tuned.

  2. ok, first off to Gaffney, if you dont want the offense to be Helu, Helu, Helu, step up and make youself known. As for Gabbert, i blame the weapons around him and the fact that Gabbert seems to be handcuffed.

  3. Both of the pass interference calls on the Bills were questionable at best (leaning more towards complete crap on the McGee one)

    Are defensive backs not even allowed to cover receivers anymore? smh

  4. Credit to Nate Clements for making another big play. As a 49er fan I felt he was a class act who always knew how to make an impact. Yeah he could get beat deep by pure speedsters but he always was a leader and a playmaker.

  5. Said Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson, “Poor decisions on my part. I feel very sick about the way I played today.”

    That’s funny, I feel sick when I turn on my TV on Sunday and……there you are!
