Vinatieri is obviously staying. Whether a new contract is written up or not - he'll be franchised again if that happens.

They need to resign David Givens - he's a big time receiver. I would make him a top priority.
agreed. Givens should be the top priority. i wouldnt mind if they kept fauria, i just don't expect it. i'd obviously love to have him back because i like him, but he is entirely expendable. givens would be key to re-sign.

they need to draft defense and a rb. need to slowly bring in younger linebackers, the defensive line is fine. secondary would be nice to patch up- wonder if harrison will ever be back and at what strength? i like samuel and hobbs turned out to be OK.

Well that was an interesting weekend of football.

I'll be back later for more detailed commentary, but briefly:

Congrats to the Broncos, the Pats played their poorest big game in a long time, you can't win turning the ball over 5 times. The refs made some poor calls but the outcome wasn't their fault (though it seemed one guy, the back judge who rules Samuel's INT not a pick from across the field and called interference from across the field may have had an interest in the Broncos)

But as for officials on the take...the overturn of the Palomalu INT. was the worst, most blatantly fixed call in NFL history. Luckily Vanderjagt's kick looked like one of my tee shots so the team who deserved to win that game did. Pitt dominated and deserved to win.

Peyton Manning can not handle big game pressure. End of story.

The Panthers will win the SuperBowl.

But don't forget that Dan made it to one SuperBowl.

Peyton can't say that, so he's more like his generation's Ken O'Brien.

Peyton's gaudy regular season statistics will always drive comparisons to Marino, despite the fact that:

- Marino actually played in a Super Bowl

- Marino had nowhere near the talent around him that Manning has


I'm sure Peyton's final career statistics will rival Marino's, and that will include no Super Bowl wins.

So any shit that gets posted, is from a poser.
In my defense, I was detained at the in-laws all weekend. That's a mixed blessing, because the in-laws are also from Colorado and big Broncos fans, so there was plenty of help in the cheering section. The bad part . . . well, it's the in-laws.

Congratulations to New England on your dominance over the last few years. You were great winners, and if it's any consolation, I was sincerely hoping Cincinnati would win so we wouldn't have to play against you guys last weekend. You were a great team. Just not good enough this time.

No gloating from me today. There's still more games to play.

On a side note, I did experience what was for me the strangest sports occurrence of my entire life. Last Thursday night, I had a dream that I was listening to the radio in my car the day after the Broncos-Pats game, and they said the final score was: Broncos 27, Pats 13. Weird.

If I have any more prophetic dreams in the next three weeks, I'll be sure to post them here for the betting folks among us.

Go Broncos.

some guy called in to mike francesa's sunday morning nfl preview show and predicted the final score of the colts-steelers game would be piitsburgh 21, indianapolis 10

mike told him that he was crazy and if that ended up being the final score that he'd let the guy host the show on monday... came about 5 minutes and one horrific call by the ref from happening.

Yeah, I'm really regretting that I'm not a betting man. I'd have made some BIG money.

The whole thing still weirds me out. It was one of those dreams where you tinker between being asleep and being awake, and it stuck with me all weekend.

When the Broncos were up 24 - 6, I told my father in-law about my dream. After the game he made me promise to have another one this weekend.

Now the pats loss to Denver bothers me obviously, but the absoulte worst part of it is that next Sunday during the AFC championship game, we're gonna have to see that head shot they use of Jake Plummer when they put stats up where he has yet to grow his mountain man beard, but has that awful 70's Porn Star moustache.
I'm starting a petition to CBS to get a new headshot of Jake the Snake.

OK I have a little time to dissect some of the weekend's posts on this thread, no better place to start than right here:

This is sad.
You don't know any of us outside of a computer message board.
To dislike someone so much from sports banter on a computer is silly.
You are welcome to post here, but you have to be prepared for people to respond. You belabor the same argument repeatedly, and most of the peole here (including non Pats fans) have tried to reasonably argue the point. (Example: If Tom Brady was a no talent product of the system, he and the Pats would have disappeared after beating the Rams much like Trent Dilfer/Ravens and Brad Johnson/Buccanears, but he/they didn't, they won 2 more Superbowls and should contend for several more years, proof that your argument is flawed).
Your problem is you are so blinded by hatred for Brady that you refuse to acknowledge facts, and embellish small things like a one time water bottle toss into a lifetime of bratty behavior and poor sportsmanship with no proof.

I for one would like to see you continue to post in the sports threads, but just provide some better and more logical reasoning to your points.
Brady is a proven winner, to this point Peyton is not. That may change, but after having everything set up so perfectly this season and failing, I don't expect it.

If in fact you never return, thats your choice, the sun will come out tomnorrow (except of course in Seattle).
