What if I had no respect for my boss and and because I didn't agree with what she was presenting in a meeting I decided to leave the meeting early because I was afraid I would do something "stupid" (Moss claimed he left early because he didn't want to get penalized for throwing his helmet, etc).

My boss would hand me my ass on a plate. Moss is paid to play and be on the field and there is no excuse for him leaving a game early.

I don't expect the NFL to fine Moss for what he did in the endzone, I think it's up to the Vikings organization to deal with Moss.
i'm going out on a limb here... but i'm gonna venture to guess that your boss makes more money than you. there-in lies the difference.

donovon mcnabb excites me about as much as having a spoon shoved up my arse excites me.

frankly at this point i believe the only NFC teams that can make the super bowl remotely interesting are the vikings & the rams... at least they can score.

what i'm baffled at is the spread of the eagles vikings game... the eagles, without TO, are favored by 9 1/2? and not only favored by 9 1/2, an over-under of 48? the only way they get to 48 points is if minnesota blows them out... the only way the eagles cover the spread is if the teams combine for less than 24 points.

if you're taking the eagles, take the under... if you're taking the over, take the vikings.

aaaand now to the pats vs. the colts.

hewson's already getting defensive about the pats, doing his best oliver stone with the implications that somehow the NFL is going to assure that mcnabb and manning are in the super bowl. interesting... michael strahan is a big campbell's soup guy also... how come the NFL didn't try to make sure the giants made the playoffs? ahh that's right... they fucking suck.

the colts offense is playing at a level not seen in a long time. that said, they do have that hurdle to climb... the hurdle is in foxboro. they always lose there. so this game this weekend, all the pressure IS on peyton manning. he's had the greatest season of any quarterback ever... but if he goes out and stinks up the joint again, then it's all for not. if he goes out and puts up peyton like numbers yet loses again, well... he's vindicated performance wise, but he still can't be put on that next level... with the greatest to ever play... until he knocks off new england and gets to the super bowl.

if ever there was a year that the pats were ripe for the picking, it's this year... the colts offense is amazing, and the pats are missing both of their starting corners. but that said... the pats always win, so until the colts pull it off, you have to give the mental edge to the pats. belichik always manages to pull some trick out of his ass. he really is a mad genious...

so in other words... while i think the colts are gonna roll, i sure as shit ain't betting against the defending champs. it should be a great game.

Also don't forget the Tony Dungy thing, he wants a Super Bowl badly, his old team the Bucs went after he was gone. So don't think Belicheck is the only coach working hard this week! All I can do is hope for the Colts.

i like how people pile on martz for this now

when the rams set a record with 3 500+ point seasons in a row there didnt seem to be much critisizing


and have you happened to check out the pass-run ratio for the superbowl champs last year? one of the highest in the league, same with philly last year, same with indy this year

you play to your strengths, and if throwing the ball is your strength then you do that

meh... i'm picking the rams and the vikings. if the eagles play the falcons in the NFC title game, i ain't watchin.

and i'm not picking on martz... it's simply fact. they throw it every damn time. they may not be as good as they used to be, but at least they're still entertaining.

I don't think people criticize Martz for his tendency to always throw the ball as much as they do for some of the stupid time management mistakes he has made in the past.

Headache, a couple of points:
1. Vikings +9.5: jump on it unless Moss' leg is gonna be an issue.

2. Strahan: 2 things here...1. His Chunky Soup campaign has taken a decisive backseat to Donovan McNabb and Mrs. "Team Mom" McNabb"...2. He's injured...notice the Giants were 5-2 before he got hurt, a sure lock for the playoffs, then when he goes down, the league tells Coughlin to throw in the towel and get Eleaf on the field, tossing a promising season away.

3. You said the Pats were "ripe for the picking". Are you in fact Mike Vanderjagt? (Or Vanderjerk as the Boston Herald's back page headline labelled him, followed by the following amusing names in Gerry Callahan's piece: Vanderjoke, Vandershank, Vanderjackass, Vanderdope, Vanderslob, Vanderschumck, and Vanderchump), cause thats one of his beautiful bulletin board fodder quotes.
Wonder if he was "all liquored up"?

i am... my foot is huge.

if moss can't play, then the eagles might still win... but they ain't covering 9 1/2, and they sure as hell ain't getting to the over.

no moss, no TO... 13-10 eagles win... one TD and 2 FGs to one TD and one FG

I loved Tedy Bruschi's response when he was told what Vanderjagt said...

``You're asking me to comment on what a kicker said?'' asked Bruschi, laughing. ``It doesn't really concern me. OK?''

"bulletin board" material is vastly over-rated in a game such as this... if anyone really needs any outside motivation, then they're in trouble as it is. that goes for both teams.

Here's my preliminary picks for this weekend:

Steelers 27, Jets 10
Falcons 31, Rams 23
Vikings 27, Iggles 24 If Moss plays and is effective, if not:
Eagles 20, Vikings 13
Patriots 34, Colts 21
