  1. An underthrown ball by Low Joe Flacco??? Ya don’t say? I’ve been saying it all along, he’s not a franchise QB, just an overpaid game manager that needs great players around him to win. Think about those TD passes he threw in the Super Bowl. The one to Jacoby was underthrown, as he had to wait on it and luckily, the SF DB’s momentum caused him to overrun the play. The TD pass to Boldin and those critical 3rd-down conversions were 50/50 balls where Anquan won the one-on-one matchup. Like iu said before, if it weren’t for Troy Smith getting sick, Flacco would’ve been a backup QB, it’s as simple as that. He’s overpaid and anyone with half a brain knows it.

    I hate to pile on and kick a man when he’s down, but Sam Bradford is overrated and overpaid too!

    For those of you thinking that Nick Foles was ready to take the job away from Mike Vick, think again. Watch the game again and see how many times he missed WIDE-OPEN receivers. Just sayin’…

  2. The Packer can’t seem to catch a break with the injuries but there they sit atop the NFC North again. Next man up.
