Excuse me, I need another pork chop and polish sausage before my third heart attack.
Whoa, he really Trubiskyed those Cowboys.

Should be easy here on out, just GB, KC and MN.

Shocking.

They'll get pretty healthy before the final run. Getting Akiem Hicks back is really a huge deal.

Never say never, but I'm not holding my breath (just hope they beat the effing Pack!).

It MIGHT turn out that you knocked the Cowboys out of the Playoffs. :-||


Go:

Carolina > @Atlanta. Unlikely to matter, though.
Baltimore > @Buffalo. Shame they're playing, though. Either one losing helps the Pats and either one winning could hurt the Pats :wtf: .
@Green Bay > Washington. Sorry, GoCubsGo.
@Houston > Denver. Not my norm, but I like Houston most in the AFC South.
Detroit > @Minnesota. I like them both, but I'll root for your Wild Card hopes, GoCubsGo.
San Francisco > @New Orleans. But I don't hate New Orleans.
@NY Jets > Miami. Not that it matters.
@Tampa Bay > Indianapolis. Unlikely to matter, though.
Pittsburgh > @Arizona. Hang on to that #2 Wild Card slot.
@New England > Kansas City. Keep Oakland's hopes alive.
@Oakland > Tennessee.
Seattle > @LA Rams Sun night.
@Philadelphia > NY Giants Mon night. Catch up to the NFC East leading 6-7 :crazy: Cowboys.

20-40, ugly. They need a new head coach ;) .
Baltimore > @Buffalo. Shame they're playing, though. Either one losing helps the Pats and either one winning could hurt the Pats :wtf: .
Baltimore 24-17, good game.
@Green Bay > Washington. Sorry, GoCubsGo.
Green Bay 20-15 :thumbup: .
@Houston > Denver. Not my norm, but I like Houston most in the AFC South.
Denver 38-24, doesn't ruin my day.
Detroit > @Minnesota. I like them both, but I'll root for your Wild Card hopes, GoCubsGo.
Nope, 7-20.
San Francisco > @New Orleans. But I don't hate New Orleans.
Wow, New Orleans wins by 1 on a Brees thrown, of course, TD with 0:53 left, missed the 2pt try. San Francisco 4th and 2, a Kittle eat Saints, too. 39 yard catch and run, walkoff 30 yard field goal, first ever 48-46 final.
@NY Jets > Miami. Not that it matters.
Yes, by 1.
@Tampa Bay > Indianapolis. Unlikely to matter, though.
Yes, by 3.
5-3 for my hopes, they weren't my predictions.

Oh well, I ain't cryin' about the Pats losing.

Ugh, they're dead this year.

Crap. Could be the difference between #1 and #5 seed, or worse.

Definitely did not look like a Super Bowl deserving team. Of course, neither did the Pats, for what that's worth.

Nice of their offense to show up, better late than never. Wow, in OT. Looks like Dallas still has the tiebreaker, but it all could come down to Dallas @Philadelphia in Week 16.

Worst division ever. With 3 games left, the winner could be 7-9.

The Raiders have already abandoned us... they are set to move to Las Vegas next season (I think).

I do support the A's. Even attend their games every year (not all of them).

I understand. I'm still a fan until they actually leave, then fuck 'em.

I don't hate Vegas, maybe I'll get over it after awhile. I never did accept the LA Raiders.

I think a team, as a corporation, ought to be able to move whenever they want - although I'd probably require them to have made some reasonable settlement about any public money spent for a stadium on their behalf. But I don't think they ought to be allowed to take the team name, its logo, or its records. Decades later, I've not forgiven the Irsays. Plus, you can get some weird teams. Imagine the Phoenix Dolphins? Maybe Oakland Steelers.

Anyway, I'd let the Raider name/logo go dormant until or unless another Oakland team took it over, and let Las Vegas pick another name, maybe Coyotes or Desert Rats.

Misery on and off the field:
10 ex-NFL players charged with defrauding healthcare program

Ten former NFL players have been charged with defrauding the league’s health care benefit program, the Justice Department said Thursday.

They include five former players on the Washington ********, including Clinton Portis and Carlos Rogers....
The article doesn't even mention who the other players are or which teams they played for :lol: .

These bullshit Advantage programs were created to privatize (destroy) Medicare. They are a slippery slope at best.
