  1. “Cowboys RB Felix Jones needed an I.V. after vomiting at halftime against the Vikings.”
    So did “Jerrah” and all the cowboy fans!!!!! It was a state of Texas “pukefest”.

  2. “Jets CB Darrelle Revis was targeted nine times on Sunday, and gave up four catches for 66 yards and a touchdown. ”
    It’s becuz offenses have determined that Bevis isn’t the “shutdown corner” that he so magnificently marketed himself to be…..until analysts reviewed game film from last year and saw that he pretty much always had help from a safety over the top. While Cromartie is a douchebag, he is a much better corner than Bevis.

  3. “Yes, Favre undoubtedly leaned toward the extreme, but he still won more games than he lost with those remarkable and dangerous tight-fit ropes he threw. There still are times when a quarterback must take a chance if he’s going to make the plays that win games.”
    A. Rodgers is 1-11 in games where the Pack lost by 4pts or less. The quote above from the GB Press is right on the money. BF has all kinds of records but he allowed the records to “come to him” from his agressive play at QB…kind of a “you win some , you lose some” attitude and regardless of what Packer fans say “now”, it is why they thought he was the greatest QB ever for the better part of 16 years. The full article above basically supports the position of many NFL fans and so called “experts”, that while A Rodgers is a great “stats” QB (so was Archie Manning ), he doesn’t seem to have the leadership skills and mindset of a great QB like Brady, Manning, Favre, Montana, etc. etc. Before Packer fans start with the trash, think about what AR has done when put in big situations. A 1-11 record in close games speaks volumes!!

  4. Why did you lump the Urlacher article in with the one liners and not give it it’s own post? Is it because PFT has an agenda it wants to push? Nah that can’t be it. You throw anything that supports the crackdown on playing defense at the top of your page with a giant headline but when a HOF linebacker like Urlacher, who people respect, speaks his mind and opposes the rule change you try to slide it under the rug.
