Mike Florio’s SNF Extra chat: Second half

Below is a transcript of Mike Florio’s chat in Sunday Night Football Extra for Week 16’s Vikings-Eagles game. You can access his live chat every week here: nbcsports.com/snfextra

AskSNF: What is your take on the Mcnabb situation? Do you think the Redskins are banking on and Andrew Luck type draft pick?
PFTonSNF: McNabb won’t be back (of course) … And yes I’d expect the Redskins to take a QB.

AskSNF: Rosenthal? Can he even reach the keyboard?
PFTonSNF: I have a highchair.

PFTonSNF: This game is getting really interesting now … Vikings need to punch this in. May not get inside the ten often.

AskSNF: Do real men wear makeup?
PFTonSNF: Fair question

PFTonSNF: What a catch by Sidney Rice and what a decision to throw on the goal line. Gutsy.

PFTonSNF: Don’t think this will be overturned. You?

PFTonSNF: I clearly could not do Mike Pereira’s job. Sigh. Vikings were robbed there.

AskSNF: Why not hand it off to Adrian peterson?
PFTonSNF: Can’t kill the playcall when Rice had two hands on the ball. Only surprised it was overturned because it didn’t seem clear.

AskSNF: the ball was moving how were they robbed?
PFTonSNF: Perhaps you are right. I didn’t think there was conclusive evidence.

AskSNF: who will be skins coach next year
PFTonSNF: Really doubt there will be a change from Shanahan after one year.

AskSNF: How did Aaron Rodgers not make the pro bowl
PFTonSNF: Great question. Deserved it over Brees, probably Ryan.

PFTonSNF: Meanwhile … let’s get back to the real surprise of this game. Eagles not doing anything on offense.

PFTonSNF: Peterson is getting real close to breaking one of these. Eagles rush D has been inconsistent all year.

PFTonSNF: Eagles offensive line can’t handle the blitz. The Vikings can.

PFTonSNF: Asante Samuel has had a problem with concussions this year. Bad tackling form.

AskSNF: Do you think Sean Mcdermot will get any looks for Head Coach?
PFTonSNF: Um … no.

PFTonSNF: Joe Webb, ladies and gentlemen! He’s more Michael Vick than Michael Vick tonight.

AskSNF: what’s going on with the Eagles?
PFTonSNF: Got the Vikings right where they want them. Amazed though at this score.

PFTonSNF: 9 throws to DeSean Jackson … 22 yards. 2 catches. Crazy.

AskSNF: On what planet would this be right where they wanted the Vikings?
PFTonSNF: Referring to last week’s game against the Giants … a joke.

AskSNF: Do you think DeSean Jackson deserves Fitzgerald money?
PFTonSNF: Not quite but in the same ballpark.

AskSNF: Will Mike Vick get over a three year deal in free agency?
PFTonSNF: More likely that he’s kept on one-year franchise tag.

AskSNF: Do you think Webb will start next week or will they let Brett start his last game?
PFTonSNF: Think Webb has to start now.

AskSNF: If GB beats Chicago next week and the Eagles loose tonight then will GB play the Eagles 1ts game in playoffs?
PFTonSNF: Correct.

AskSNF: Is it just me…or is Mike Carey the most “official” official ever? I would believe the earth was flat if he said so!
PFTonSNF: Well said.

PFTonSNF: Vick could have dumped it off there to Jackson … he brings some of these hits on himself.

AskSNF: Michael Vicks MVP chances….RIP.
PFTonSNF: Think he was a longshot anyway, but I agree.

AskSNF: Does Danny Woodhead deserve Reggie Bush money$$ ?
PFTonSNF: Reggie Bush doesn’t deserve Reggie Bush money.

AskSNF: if philly loses tonight, chicago should get 1st round bye? whatabout home field?
PFTonSNF: Chicago clinches first round bye with an Eagles loss. They could get homefield if Falcons, Saints lost next week.

AskSNF: Looks like a knee blowout.
PFTonSNF: Didn’t look pretty. Was his first NFL game.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio is it safe to say that the Pats would pick apart any NFC team in the superbowl? NO AFC team is going to dethrown the Pats
PFTonSNF: Not safe at all. Not that huge a gap between Patriots and other top teams.

AskSNF: What is Joe Webb’s pedigree?
PFTonSNF: Sixth round pick from UAB. Vikings thought he might be a wide receiver for them.

AskSNF: The Eagles either get a bye in week 17 or week 18 – at least they get a one week break
PFTonSNF: Good point. But the 6 seed could be Packers. Very tough matchup.

AskSNF: do you think the eagles will trade kevin kolb next year
PFTonSNF: No, think they like having two quality quarterbacks.

PFTonSNF: Long way to go here but the Eagles really need points in this drive. I’m not confident Eagles D can get stops.

AskSNF: Could Favre be a good QB Coach?. His young understudies always seem to OVER perform. T. Jackson was not young.
PFTonSNF: T-Jack plenty young … and Favre wouldn’t want to put in the hours a coach does.

AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio So you seriously think Tom Brady couldnt pick apart any NFC team he faces in the superbowl?
PFTonSNF: Crazier things happen every year. But its more about the Patriots D.

PFTonSNF: If the Eagles win … remember that play by McCoy. That’s how you win games.

AskSNF: Are these the dumbest questions you’ve ever had to answer?
PFTonSNF: And I choose the best ones!

PFTonSNF: Yep, calling the “Vick makes everyone look stupid” play works well. What a move.

AskSNF: what are the chances Harbaugh goes to San Fran from Stanford?
PFTonSNF: Peter King reported he was high on their list. It makes a lot of sense.

AskSNF: Is Vick the entire Eagles team?
PFTonSNF: They are a 9-7 team at best with Kevin Kolb.

AskSNF: Another philly comeback? or vikes D going to adjust and do what they did they 1st half?
PFTonSNF: I think it’s more about the Vikings offense. Need to keep getting first downs.

AskSNF: Do you think Vick will be the consensus #1 fantasy pick next year?
PFTonSNF: Not consensus, but top-3.

AskSNF: Are running QB’s the wave of the future for the NFL?
PFTonSNF: We’ve heard that one before.

AskSNF: Do the Falcons have a lot to retool after their loss?
PFTonSNF: No but a reminder they aren’t unbeatable at home. 6 straight one score games.

AskSNF: how are the patriots able to score so much vs most team? with 60 TD’s in 15 games
PFTonSNF: +27 in turnover margin. Extra possessions and Tom Brady. And they are balanced.

PFTonSNF: Giants couldn’t keep scoring late last week … Joe Webb did. Wow.

AskSNF: will it be a shocker if the Eagles lose?
PFTonSNF: Um … yes. One of the biggest upsets in NFL all year.

AskSNF: can the saints get the 1st seed?
PFTonSNF: They still do have a chance, yes. But they would need Carolina to win in Atlanta. Not happening.

AskSNF: If the Eagles are suppose to be one of the best teams in the NFL why are they playing so badly against one of the worst teams?
PFTonSNF: This is the NFL … it happens. Team seems flat in weird setting.

PFTonSNF: Massive sack. Vick is hobbling. Third and real long. Eagles really on the ropes.

AskSNF: was that a good decision to punt?
PFTonSNF: I don’t think it’s worth it. Field position that important at this point?

PFTonSNF: No chance.

PFTonSNF: Let’s see if the Vikings can pick up the first downs the Giants couldn’t last week.

AskSNF: Do you think the Falcons will lose to the Panthers next week?
PFTonSNF: No chance … the last no chance was to a “Will John Skelton start next year?” question.

PFTonSNF: Good call

PFTonSNF: Eagles couldn’t handle the hype and success after last week. Sign of an immature team. Time to turn it around, but will be tougher.

AskSNF: Do you think i will be married by age 30?
PFTonSNF: If you stay focused.

AskSNF: Last week would you have said the Eagles would lose to the Vikings?
PFTonSNF: Jimmy Clausen is no Joe Webb.

AskSNF: is chicago an easy win for the pack?
PFTonSNF: I don’t think so, but will be tempting for Bears to sit guys.

AskSNF: Before the game ends. Rams or Seahawks?
PFTonSNF: Rams for sure. Seahawks are a disaster right now. May be one of worst 2-3 teams in league.

AskSNF: Are the Eagles really bad tonight or did Joe Webb surprise them?
PFTonSNF: Both of course but Eagles didn’t play well. Vick doesn’t look right.

AskSNF: Jimmy Clausen is no Joe Webb? Florio, you’re back? Not that I disagree, but would anyone but a Vikings fan say that?
PFTonSNF: Nope, this is Rosenthal. Clausen hasn’t had anything close to a performance like this.

AskSNF: jimmy clausen is way better than joe webb
PFTonSNF: You haven’t watched him play as a pro, clearly.

AskSNF: Is this the jewel win in the crown of the Viking’s season? If yes, is this sad?
PFTonSNF: No doubt. Impressive effort by entire team. They were so flat the last two weeks.

PFTonSNF: SNF Extra coming up next Sunday. Watch Florio on the post-game show … good night!

PFTonSNF: Good thing Andy Reid punted.

  1. THE NFL is on the level!

    Eagles and Vick showing zero effort to win. Tough luck for Vick in first half 3 perfectly thrown interceptions all dropped.

    ONLY betting game in Vegas at night AND thwe huge underdog as usual the only team to show up!

    Whatta joke! I guess thats how the former bookmaker team owners got to make money since there wont be season next year for them.

  2. I’m trying to figure out how Channing Crowder possibly thinks Michael Vick should be MVP over Tom Brady this year.

    Hell, Matt Cassel has been better.

    Vick has 3 costly turnovers tonight against the Vikings, and frankly Joe Webb has outplayed him. We’ll see if Vick can lead the Eagles to a comeback win.


  3. Mickey Vick’s night?

    2 lost fumbles (1 returned for TD)
    1 INT (should have been at least 3)
    6 sacks

    MVP??? Not anymore…not when you lose at home to a 2 TD underdog scrign a total of 14 pts…even the “RABID” Vick fans can’t argue with that. especially when he got outplayed by some no name scrub.

  4. The Vikings do have good players on their team. They just have played so badly as a team this year.

    Not trying to belittle the upset, but unlike other bad teams the Vikings do have the players to be good. It was just a matter of motivation, injuries, luck, and a coach who just got on everyone’s nerves too much.

    I’d like us to give Frazier a shot. The big question is if the Vikes draft a QB or roll with what they have and bring in a vet. Personally I’d like us to go get Orton and continue to develop Webb and that kid they picked up off the Giants practice squad. We have so many other needs that the top 15 pick could go towards.
