And the funny thing is teams never seem to cover him when he comes into the game during goalline situations. Hello the Patriots like to throw to Mike Vrabel when they're inside the 3! Why don't you try covering him?

I'm surprised other teams haven't tried to adopt the Vrabel style thing into their play.  The Pats use him on goalline because he's more than big enough to block, he's got good hands, and he's really tall.  That's PRECISELY what you want on any goal line drive!  Don't give me some skinny wide receiver that can't handle getting banged around.  Gimme someone that'll pound your teeth into your skull.

Mike Vrabel is even the designated receiver for onside kicks, check the end of the Giants game two weeks ago. It makes sense I would rather hit some skinny receiver than a big line backer if I was trying to dislodge a ball.

Are any of you guys watching the Packers/Seahawks game?  Holy crap, mangs.  I didn't expect this at all.  Turnovers have been the name of the game so far.

How about Atari Bigby, huh?  That guy is out for blood.  All his hits have been huge today.

Bigby is sick, the snow is awesome, Shaun Alexander is terrible (Maurice Morris PLEASE?), and Brett Farve = Superman.  I hope the Hawks can keep it close enough to remain worth watching, because football in this weather is a fantastic thing.

I don't know what happened to Alexander. Two years ago he was one of the best backs in the league and since then he's just been a consistent disappointment. The difference this year is that Hasselbeck is playing so well it doesn't matter, at least not until now. I guess age just caught up with him or something.

Even though it's been rather one-sided, this is one of the most fun matches of football I've ever watched.  BobJoeJim summed it up just about perfectly.

If Green Bay keeps this up, I wouldn't be surprised to watch them win the Super Bowl.  Seeing as my team's out of the playoffs now (Steelers), I'm pulling for Green Bay the rest of the way, just because of how awesome this one game has been.  That, and I'd like to see Farve retire with another championship ring.

You do know you're actually allowed to throw an incomplete pass every now and then, right Brady?  16/16 in the second half is absolutely nuts.  Even more amazing, the Patriots aren't actually ahead at this moment.

Edit:  Awesome, he throws his first incompletion AS I POST THIS.

Indy will probably still get one last shot.  San Diego will be punting with what, 25 seconds left or so?  This has been a fantastic game.  Combined with the NE/JAX game yesterday and all the snow in Green Bay, this has the potential to be the best overall round of playoff games I've ever seen if the Giants and Cowboys do their part this afternoon.

Good job, Indy.  You choked in the playoffs again.  The Colts are like the Greg Norman of football.

Indianapolis needs to stop doing so well in the regular season.  They are an absolutely terrible team coming off of by-weeks.  I just now realized the only Super Bowl they've won in the past 10 years, despite being one of the best teams in football, was the ONE YEAR they were a Wild-Card team.

Congrats to the Chargers, though.  They stepped it up when they needed to.  If LT and Rivers are healthy again for next week (and I have every reason to believe they will be seeing as the injuries they got only barely took them out of THIS game) then they have a chance against New England.  Of course, every team has had a CHANCE but none have capitalized on it.

Also I wouldn't be caught dead in the New England part of the country.  It smells funny and the roads are so small. :(

Seriously Tom Coughlin,
Three running plays and out on the last drive.
Then you run two straight times and get nothing on the next drive and then manning gets sacked trying to pass on third down.
Terrible play calling.  Just terrible.

You are so lucky your injured defense pulled it out for you

Giants - 21, Cowboys - 17  (Cowboy O has been playing like crap for a few weeks now and Romo thinks he can get away with going on vacation instead of sticking to their guns.  Giants are totally going to win.)

Anyway,

I agree that Coughlin's playcalling on the last two drives the Giants had was nothing short of retarded, but it still worked out in the end.

Fuck the Cowboys whooooooooo!

To be honest, I'd prefer to see San Diego - Green Bay. Although it would be cool to see New England vs. Green Bay provided that Favre proceeds to kick the shit out of Tom Brady to preserve the karmic order. Like, figuratively, not literally. Although at this point I would be honestly OK with either. What I am trying to say is that right now the Patriots are basically completely fucking insufferable. Maybe this was what everyone else in the country was feeling back when the Niners were destroying everyone in the 80s but I wasn't alive for the majority of that and not cognizant of football for the rest, so it doesn't count.

Also that was basically the best post ever.

As a Redskins fan I'm just happy Norv Turner won this week.  I still don't really know why Dan Snyder fired the man, he was a better coach than Spurrier and Schottenheimer combined.

I think Turner ate both their brains or something.  Then Joe Gibbs ran him over with one of his big ol' racin' cars.

...oh man you guys this needs to happen now

Norv Turner?!? Really?!? Is he a better NFL coach than Steve Spurrier? Sure, but then again you probably are too. Norv Turner is a great O-Coordinator but he is constantly over matched as a head coach.

Though, what do I know I went 1-3 on my picks over the weekend. Still I'll give it another shot.

Patriots 31 - Chargers 24

Packers 35 - Giants 20

I still hate the Packers.

Yes, I would say that.  Dallas may have TO and a good TE in Witten, but what else?  The Packers have at least four decent wide receivers they can count on to catch the ball and run for more yards after the catch (Possibly five with the robinson/martin tandem).

Plus, the Pack's O-line is going to give Favre all day to pass.  They have given up only 19 sacks on the season, third in the league.

I am going to hold off on my score predictions for Championship weekend until Friday, although I still think it's going to be a Pats/Packs superbowl this year. 

The Chargers are going to be all sorts of murdered by the Patriots without LT and Rivers, but I honestly think they have a chance with those two can get healthy.  As I've said all year, the only way you'll beat the Patriots is to force some turnovers because they've been playing perfectly.  And even then, you have to CAPITALIZE on your turnovers, and you can't make them yourself.  The Chargers have been very good at that and if they somehow manage to get an interception or cause a fumble (or two!) then it's anyone's game.

Same thing with the Packers/Giants, really.  The Giants have been playing great the last few weeks but they are a battered team at this point.  Their defense is basically a bunch of cripples anymore.  With the way the Packers played last week at home, the Giants D is going to need to get healthy quick if they want to stop the Pack from scoring another 42 points.

LT should be able to play against New England.  Hell, Antonio Gates dislocated a toe and still played the next week, LT can live with a knee hyper-extension.

I figure if LT is back, and most of their offense is healthy they've got a shot.  Even if Rivers sits out, they've got a long shot with Volek under center.

Basically Antionio Cromartie needs to work some more of his magic.

Norv Turner?!? Really?!? Is he a better NFL coach than Steve Spurrier? Sure, but then again you probably are too.

I'm honestly not quite sure if that was a shot at Spurrier or condescending towards me.  Both?

It was definitely a shot at Spurrier, who is a lot of fun as a college coach, but would never be able to work in the NFL. It was only a shot at you as far as you trying to defend Norv Turner as a head coach. You don't hop from team to team with a sub .500 record if you are a solid NFL head coach. It means a team was desparate and didn't get who they really wanted and needed someone to fill the gap for a year or two.
