    Fantastic games on One HD. Watched the whole of the Jets Bears game this morning and it was a ripper. Hester was a huge stand-out and his ST running was probably the difference. Then a huge win to the Packers and the Giants look fried.

    My team Chargers got done as usual but fortunately so did Oakland. The big game will be the delayed Eagles Vikings game for most on here played Tuesday US time. Pats got a good win over the Bills but the stats were pretty even and the Bills defence was woeful for the TDs they let in. Even the Broncos scraped home for a win.

    I am loving this time of year again.

    Unfortunately the Chargers are done with that loss, can't make the playoffs now. It's a shame because Phillip Rivers is having an amazing season, would've been nice to see what they could do if the rest of the team decided to really stand up as well. To lose to the Bungles adds insult to injury as well.

    I think the Gunts are done now, losing to Philly last week in the way they did was just a shot in the head. They've lost it completely. As a Philly fan i'm keeping my fingers crossed that the Pack can do the same to the Bears next week & let us get the #2 seed for the playoffs.

    I've heard that despite the extra couple of days rest Farve will not be playing against Philly. Joe Webb is the starting QB for tuesdays game. AP is still doubtful but he seems to think he'll play, although I've heard that his thigh injury is serious enough that permanent damage could result if he cops another big knock in his leg. It may be just the Iggles fan in me talking but I think the Vikes would be insane to risk him, the season is done they may as well just tank the final two games. Play some rookies.

    Oh dear. One very sick Vick and a spanking against a team that was supposed to have lost. Good luck in two weeks when it really begins.

    Well that was disgraceful, not even sure where to start. The coaching staff will cop loads of flak for the playcalling, thats for sure. Why keep calling pass plays when Vick is getting hammered?! Shady McCoy was running into loads of space, just keep handing it off! AAHH!

    Defence & O-Line were as weak as cat wee, but we already knew that so it wasn't a suprise. They've just come up the goods a few times this year & changed a lot of peoples minds about them. Dimitri Patterson is not a starting corner, never was & never will be. He should be our nickle corner next year but nothing more than that.

    I think Desean needs to get called out as well, the guy has no heart. It's rare that he ever puts his body on the line for the team but gets all the accolades for the ten or so plays he pulls out of his butt ever season. Maclin is our true #1, time for him to get acknowledged as such.

    I think we should rest as many starters as possible for next week. Sure it's Cowboys week & they'll be gunning for a revenge win but it really doesn't matter much, we're locked in for the #3 playoff seed win or lose. Give Kolb some game time like they should've in the last part of the Vikes game. We'll be having the Pack or the Gunts at the Linc in the first wildcard round so the team (especially Vick) will need the rest.

    Wouldn't mind if they played Djax against the Cowboys though as apparently they want some revenge on him personally for his end zone taunt so chuck him out there, let him get battered & see if he has the balls to get back up & keep running.

    Oh & Shane, did you see the 49ers fired Coach Singletary? All you guys need now is a QB & your good to go!  :D

    Haha, dream on :p.

    The game did remind me of the Oakland game in 08 where we let Jamarcus Russell walk all over us & in return McNabb threw the ball into the stands. Thought we were past all that stuff when we traded McNabb, but I guess not.

    They've already impressed me, most people expected the Eagles to be an 8-8 team before the season started.

    If they can find that magic form again then maybe a SB run isn't out of the question. I think that the Eagles, Pack & Saints are the only NFC teams good enough to win it.

    [/quote]  No dreaming mate, 24-14 is pretty emphatic in my book.  Including a rookie QB.  Not bad for a 199 pick, though his athletics stats are better than most, including the dog killer.

    6-9 record says a lot as well, especially the 1-5 divisional record.

    We were due for a fall, the team simply isn't good enough to go the entire season with only three losses.

    As a Vikes fan you surely can't be confident with Joe Webb as your QB though.

    I expect they will seek a solid experienced QB for next season as back-up, but see how they go with Webb as a starter first.  Get AP right and more into the game than Chilly did and you don't need a QB throwing for 300+ every game.  Webb had good College stats but at an unsexy school.  Tom Brady was also a 199 pick in the draft, like Webb. 

    I don't view the win against the Eagles as an abberation of indicating the Eagles can't go far this year.  More it was the Vikes freeing the shackles of a horror season.  The D not frustrated by Favre howlers or looking for a big play on every play, just stifling the opposition as they used to.  AP getting good numbers despite being injured and Webb making the most of a lot of good WR targets.

    I'd say something like this will happen if Frazier stays as the coach. There are lots of rumours flying around the Vikes & Frazier are in intense negotiations so it seems like he'll stay for next year at least.

    I think McNabb would be perfect for you guys. Washington have all but said they're going to release him in the offseason so you should be able to pick him up during the FA signings. He's no where near elite anymore but he still has the arm strength to chuck it deep for Rice & Harvin, plus with AP being there he has no pressure to put the team on his back & carry them. His mobility isn't the same since he broke his ankle but it's still decent, he's no statue.

    I still think the Vikes would draft another QB in that scenario, someone like a Jake Locker that they can sit in the depth chart for a few years & work on, let him compete with Webb for #2 QB.

    I think the thing I love about the NFL the most is how interesting the offseason is, never a dull moment.

      Just as well given how long it is.  Seems ridiculous how short their season is.

    I'm fine with the length of the season personally but from what is coming out about the new CBA negotiations, It's going to be a 20 week season next year instead of 17.

    NFL & the owners want two of the pre-season games to become proper games & the NFLPA want an extra bye week if this is the case.
