as a long time Giant fan i can honestly say... HAHAHAHAHA Jason Seahorn blows... me and my best friend, who's 24th birthday it was saturday... both said, and i quote, "jason seahorn will blow the coverage on the last play of the game. and low and behold... seahorn did just that. i'm sure angie harmon stlll loves him.


that being said... great game by the titans... almost pulled it out. i may have been 0 for 2 today... but both games came down to the last second, so i'm still confident

Back to the original topic, Headache, you of all people should know that thie Sat night game was predetermined to be an AFC game (They alternate , last yr was Falcons-Eagles, year before was Raiders-Pats), so the only 2 options were games in Foxboro or KC. They made the decison to have the Pats game be the Saturday game somehwre around last Thursday, before the long range forecasts for the 2 cities would be accurate, and certainly KC has the potential to be cold as well. The decision to show the Pats over Chefs was clearly ratings driven, Boston a much bigger TV market than KC, but the Rams game could never have been in that slot.

Have you lived less than a week??
Because last Saturday night the Dallas-Carolina game started at exactly the same time.
These 8:15 Saturday night playoff games have been happening for the past 3 yrs now, just like moving the times of the Championship games from the traditional 12:30 and 4:00 times to now 3:00 and 6:45 its all about getting as much playoff football in primetime as po$$ible.

yeah i know why they did it... they alternate every week. but on they could've easily switched the games and not had a complaint i guess it's all a moot point now
