NFL 2012 Wild Card Week Thread

What's the over-under on dumb comments for Simms today? Is he trying to one-up Dierdorf?

What about the one where he was just bragging about a lineman doing "hand fighting" and martial arts?

That had to be the easiest interception opportunity Ray Lewis ever had his entire career, and he dropped it.

*EDIT*
Hell of a catch and run by Rice. Pierce and Rice are definitely carrying the load for the Baltimore offense.

Was coming in to post about that facemask. And how much I hate CBS commentators.

But you guys are doing it for me. Thanks.

That 52-yarder is encouraging. We could use a touchdown to get the offense clicking at the start of the second half, though. Come on, Chuckstrong!

As much as I dislike Indy...it would be the ultimate irony for them to win today and get put out by Peyton Manning next week.

Wow, true that.

Boldin is straight beast mode today.

LOL.

TV: "3rd and 1... That timeout by the Ravens may backfire, it let the Colts bring Dwight Freeney back in."

ME: "Backfire? Not if it's a run."

BILLY BAJEMA: "I'm only a tight end but even I can run block your ass out of the picture, Freeney."

DWIGHT FREENEY: "WTF?!?"

BERNARD PIERCE: "ROFLCOPTOR"

Can someone explain to me why that pass was incomplete?

"If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball after he touches the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete."

Basically what that means is simple. If a player goes to the ground while in the process of making a catch, he must control the ball all the way through until his momentum from the fall ends. If at any point before his momentum stops he loses control of the ball and it touches the ground, the pass is incomplete.

3 for 3. Come on Redskins.

Come on Skins. The good people of the world are counting on you to crush Pete Carroll's hopes and dreams.

One game to save them all.

To me, he had downed both his knees, his elbow and had rolled over onto his back, stopping his momentum. The opposing player's knee knocks that ball loose after that, and he recovers the ball. Could be a fumble, but an incomplete pass? I just don't see it.

Also, our rookies got us to this game and our rookies lost it. Good experience for them, but frustrating for us fans.

This game has already been more exciting than the other three combined.

Seattle's defense is getting punked here so far... not looking good at all.

I'm not sure if Griffin is going to survive this game.

EDIT: Dirty late hit?

Late for sure, not sure how dirty it actually was. The shove at end was pretty bush league though.

Expect nothing less from Seattle.

Great start for Wash.

Redskins corners looking to try and keep up with the physicality of the Seahawks corners.

Hall is lucky that didn't draw a flag for 15 yards extra

Just when it was looking bad, fumble!

Good grief.

100% Cousins has to be better than the 50% RGIII we're seeing right now.

Russell Wilson! I've never seen that before. A QB sprinting to catch up to throw a block.

If the Redskins lose it's all on Shanahan. It's been clear for the last few series that RGIII shouldn't be out there, and you've already had success with Cousins this year. Just stupid to keep him out there.

That's what you get Shanahan you stupid ass.

As much as I hate to say it, RGIII's injury is exhibit A of why Chip Kelly should stay at Oregon. The perils of running QBs in the NFL. Feel bad for RGIII. That was hard to watch.

Thought the same thing. Kid didn't even get hit, which is probably the worst possible scenario. Knee just went.

Indeed...I'm not sure that he should have even started this game even after the success of the first Quarter

Washington's offensive line... Wow

Seriously, I thought I was watching the Titans for a minute there.
