  1. Remember when people (homers) were picking the Chiefs to win the west and Darren McFadden was the best rb in the league?

  2. The Saints weren’t able to keep the Panthers pass rush at bay in Sunday’s loss.

    Wanted Alive:
    Sean Peyton+Gregg Williams badly missed in the Boot.

  3. The blame in the Patriots game?

    Plain and simple – play calls.

    The absolute worse I have seen in decades (I’ve been following the team for almost 4). If it was

    That’s what is to blame for the loss, plain and simple. I’m sure some of you out there will have more to add, but if you do, it would just be the icing, decorations and candles on the cake.
