  1. The Colts, Niners, and Seahawks are in for a rude awakening when their top players come off their rookie deals.

  2. It would not surprise me if Andy Dalton turned out much like Matt Ryan, who always seems to find a way to lose despite the wealth of talent behind him. Big regular season numbers, much to the delight of his fantasy owners, but nada in the playoffs or when the playoffs are on the line.

  3. Whisenhunt can have Packers Linebacker coach Winston Moss. I know he has this great reputation but if you watched the Packers linebackers this year, you would not be impressed at all.

  4. It’s championship week and the best one-liner you can come up with for the Patriots is a quote from Gisele…?

  5. “Says Gisele Bundchen of her husband, Patriots QB Tom Brady, ‘He’s very loving and it’s a wonderful thing. In our house we are very affectionate. I think it’s very important for the boys to know that it’s OK to hug and to kiss and you’re not less than a man.’ ”

    I don’t normally envy athletes but Brady may be the exception. Brady plays a sport we all love as a profession, wins more than anyone in the history of the game, yuks it up with his offensive lineman like best buddies from college, and then goes home to a super model wife and kids and is showered with affection we were enjoyed during the best times of our lives. However, she does dress him funny.

  6. garbage man cutller who never won a playoff game gets 18 mil a year!! im sure kaep who’s 4-1 in the playoffs is getting 18 mil or more a year. so will russell and luck.
