    I, for one, am going to lose MAJOR sleep over Brandon Jacobs hating all Cowboy fans. People who live in glass houses…

    Flynn craps the bed against a very good Detroit D that needs a win, and you could say the opposite.

    If the Packers thought about it…they play starters and beat Detroit, Detroit goes down to New Orleans and has a good shot in a dome to knock New Orleans off…I say play your starters like this is a playoff game if you’re McCarthy.

    He’s way too late. Mark Sanchez beat him to the punch weeks ago.

    Lots of players have a down year after having an up year, and only one of them per year ends up on the cover of Madden. What curses can the others blame for their misfortunes?

    GB Sunday forecast: flurries, 26 F, wind WNW 28 mph gusting to 48 mph. Field goals: unlikely. Passing attack: good luck with that.

    @purpleisreallypinkyouknow

    The Lions have a ‘good shot’ to knock off New Orleans? I wouldn’t say anyone has a ‘good shot’ to knock off the Saints..have you seen them play lately? Not saying they (or anyone else) can’t do it..but ‘a good shot’ is not something Detroit would have.

    Brandon Jacobs reminds me of one of the “bad guy” wrestlers in WWE. He just tries too hard to be the villain in every scenario.

    It just comes off douche-y….

    5 years after his career is over, even hardcore Giants fans will struggle to remember who Brandon Jacobs was.
