Its going to be a long frustrating career for the Titans ;P

These announcers for the Colts/Lions game are horrible. Might even be worse than Jon Gruden.

That Andrew Luck, he's pretty good.

Damn-it.

Rams. Ugh.

Kaepernick? Kaepernick? Kaepernick.....?

If the Ravens can't stop the run, this is going to be an ugly game.

To the Bears fans from a Seahawks fan, well played game. I honestly thought you had it several times. What's funny is I had to take my kid to the bathroom when we scored in overtime.

Does Mike Wallace seem like he's barely trying?

He's seemed that way to me for much of the year.

Freeman hit while passing, screws up the throw, goes right to Vonn Miller for the pick six. Sigh. Expected the loss, just would like it to not be embarrassing.

Yeah Denver creating a lot of space now.

And a huge punt return. Sheesh.

Denver really is that good. Looking primed for the playoffs.

Oh hell Phil Dawson finally missed a FG.

It's contagious today, tons of FGs missed.

Would the Lions job be considered an attractive one in the eyes of those 'sought' after coaches?

Schwartz might last till the end of the season but I think hes pretty much a dead man walking. They might go 1-3 down the stretch finishing 5-11. Games vs Packers, Cards, Falcons, Bears.

You would figure Stafford, Megatron, the young guys on the D line and a top 10 pick this year would be pretty tempting.

Not sure about the Lions, they're pretty dysfunctional personality-wise, and it's not like outside of the positions you mentioned there's a whole lot there. Offensive line's not good, secondary's leaky as heck, plus you have to play the Packers and Bears twice a year, and they seem likely to be pretty challenging for a few years, particularly if either team gets a real o-line. Arizona, maybe? Get a QB, and that's a viable team with the defense. San Diego, maybe?

Arizona needs an offensive line more than anything. Not many QBs would look good playing behind the worst pair of tackles in the league.

I'm sick of Joe Flacco.

Wow, really didn't expect Charlie Batch to win in Baltimore.

Ok, quick poll for the best outcome for tonight's Eagles/Cowboys game:

1. Cowboys win
2. Eagles win
3. The earth opens up, swallowing the stadium whole.

I think I'm actively rooting for #3. Anyone else?

I was holding out hope for a meteor strike.

Option 4: Ends in a tie.

Same here. Why in does it seem that every permutation of the Cowboys-Eagles-Giants triad is in primetime? It's almost as bad as ESPN broadcasting every freaking Yankees-Red Sox game.

1. Cowboys win. Romo has one of those games where he looks scintillating, making Cowboys fans forget all the horrible games just long enough to crush their hopes and dreams next week when he throws four pick-sixes.

Oooh, even better.

5. Romo has a career defining first half, after which reality sets in, and he becomes completely incapable of throwing the ball to the team in white.

Bucs looked like they were trying to get Manning on those last two kneels.

Because 50% of the country lives in the eastern timezone, ESPN is in Connecticut and those teams all have a decent amount of history.
