The Steelers will be facing a healthy Haloti Ngata on Thanksgiving.

The Texans are a competitive team, at least according to Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

  1. Unbelievable the Titans are currently in the playoffs. But I’ll take it. I’m not an NBA guy so while my team has no shot at the SB, I still want them to win as much as possible & go as far as possible. High first round picks in the NFL aren’t even close to guaranteed to become stars. Tanking simply doesn’t work in the NFL, with the Colts being the exception to the rule. Damn you Colts, damn you.

  2. How can a regular season game between the Saints and Seahawks be bigger than a previous playoff game? You lose in the playoffs, your season is over. This is not a must-win for either team.

    Makes no sense. Talk about a hype machine.

  3. The Browns weren’t the only ones surprised that the hit that knocked Campbell out of the game didn’t draw a flag. As explained here in PFT the rule states “head or neck area” and that hit clearly was in that zone. Jason Campbell isn’t Drew Brees and that’s just one factor in how the rules are interpreted from one game to another in the NFL these days. The outcome of the game is in the hands of the officials now more than ever

  4. Man, as a born and raised Western Pennsylvania Steeler fan — it’s just so lame to see moronic Steeler Parasite weigh in with some way off base take about how Ngata is a bum.

    Ngata is Godzilla at sixth grade recess. And the reality is that we would absolutely love to have Haloti Ngata in Black and Gold. Absolute legend who’ll be gold-jacketed and bronze-busted one day – he balls the Steeler way – just wears the purple.
