    I'll admit I've been critical of Richard Sherman in the past, but I absolutely loved the 'press conference' today. I get where people can take issue with it and call it immature, but I thought it was brilliant and I loved it!

    Very rarely can a single act like that change my outlook on somebody, but I instantly like him now because of that.
    I now take that statement back, after two interceptions tonight... :smiley:

    The 49ers continued their downward spiral tonight unfortunately. I was hoping they'd get it turned around, but that offense is just horrendous and I don't see how that can change anytime soon. IF the rumors are true and Harbaugh moves on after this season maybe he'll find a way to take Kaepernick with him.

    That game was pretty much exactly what I thought it would be only Denver was the team who got the breaks, take away a couple of fluke plays like the fake punt and the other Denver punt being so bad it hit the KC player in the back of the leg and you're looking at a different situation.

    Denver is still a flawed team and if the playoffs were to start today nobody would give them a chance playing up in New England. Luckily that's not the case and there's still time to get some things ironed out.

    I agree they're flawed, but some of those plays were fun to watch..

    Some good football played yesterday..

    How bout the Buckeyes! Hope this gets them in the playoffs. I think this proves Ohio State can compete with anyone even with the third string quarterback. Jones is having one hell of a game.

    I don't see Ohio State getting in, even with the blowout win over Wisconsin. If they do then the committee will have to explain themselves because the team they would replace, TCU, also had a blowout win. I didn't agree with the rankings going into this week, but I also didn't see anything today that would make those standings change.

    TCU lost to Baylor so the Bears will take their spot, that will allow the Buckeyes to get in. Plus TCU's win was against an unranked Iowa state, where the Buckeyes shut out the # 13 team.

    Can't really use that analogy because Baylor beat 9th ranked KSU and 3rd Ranked TCU (9th ranked at time of defeat)

    Both Baylor and OSU lost to unranked teams...there's many ways to spin.

    That's why there needs to be an 8 team playoff.

    TCU and Baylor both won't be in the playoffs, only one, and those two teams are tied as the Big12 champions, but Baylor beat TCU so that breaks the tie. TCU won't get in...and it looks like they dropped to six behind Ohio State.

    Alabama will play Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl! Oregon and Florida State in the Rose bowl.

    Now good luck to the Browns today. The Colts are going to be a tremendous test.

    My Colts damn near lost that game today, another slow start that required last minute heroics to get the win. The Colts are the NFL version of FSU, except without the undefeated record and the off-field drama with the QB.
  • voltzvoltz Posts: 5,423
    I wonder if the committee took the easy way out with Ohio State - not that they didnt earned it too as they all 3 should earned a shot. but if you choose TCU or Baylor you get the most criticism. As a big 12 fan I still think this maybe their best call. I would not have wanted to make that decision.

    That was a pretty sketchy win by Denver today, and another lackluster performance from Manning (we've had several of these this year). I'm actually ok for the time being because they're building a running game, but eventually they're gonna need to revive the passing game.
  • Browns let me down. Time for Manziel.

    Needless to say I'm really disappointed in my 49ers this year, I'm not sure if they're mathematically eliminated at this point but it's pretty clear they're not going to really contend this year. I hope this year is a fluke and not the start of another 10 year downward spiral like the one we had to endure in the previous decade.

    I'm probably one of the few who actually like Harbaugh as a coach, but I'll be surprised if he's still around another year. People hold the guy in high regard and talk about his successes, and he has taken some really bad teams and turned them around. But if you look at his career, both as a player and a coach, he's never won 'the big game'. If there's anything we've learned over the years, anything less than a Super Bowl win in San Francisco isn't going to cut it.

    Let's see.

    'Bama vs. OSU. Alabama should have no problems! Buckeyes don't even belong in that game.

    Oregon vs Florida. I can't stand any of the Florida teams. Oregon looks "good"!

    Seattle is beginning to surge! Watch out Packers, a good defensive team can shut "you" down (Patriots with a lackluster game had a chance to win, imagine what a GREAT defense would do!) I don't particularly care for the S-hawks, but you have to give credit where credit is due. Frankly I was pissed the Eagles had so much trouble with them at HOME! Won't be watching SB if it's a SHawks repeat. But more power to them if they do.

    The Falcons adjusted at halftime, called an extremely good offensive game in the second half, executed on a high level, and really put it all on the table and fought with guts to the end when lesser teams would've folded at halftime. They were anything but an average team. The Packers have an excellent offense with multiple weapons, many of which were never really utilized last night, but have much work to do to get consistent on defense before the playoffs. That game last night was real football.
  • dromundsdromunds Posts: 8,984
    The Falcons in the second half speaks for itself. Their record has nothing to do with it. You think Julio Jones was average? Any given Sunday.

    Welcome to the NFL scrub. (Insert Johnny Football).
  • Manziel not playing as bad as it seems. Oline is not getting it done...especially the center. Browns started struggling several weeks ago with the injury to the pro bowl center Alex Mack.
