Yeah, someone explain to me the concept of icing the punter.

This is the NFC we're talking about. They are a long way from being out of it.

I am unfamiliar with this concept, but in the Florida-Arkansas game yesterday Florida coach Urban Meyer successfully iced an Arkansas punt returner.

he wasn't icing the punter. colts had the FG defense on the field and didnt have a return man setup as I understand it and caught Dungy off guard by bringing the punt team on. so dungy spent his last time out, and then fisher kicked a FG anyway.

by using their last time out, fisher ensured that pretty much if the FG was missed, manning wouldnt have a time out to work with so they would only have a hail mary to throw into the endzone and have no chance at a FG, as I understand it.

I've always liked Fisher!

He has some young talent on that team.

Notably, a certain Black Jesus.


I'm roadtripping to Houston next weekend for the Titans/Texans game just to see VY.

Amazing!

The Colts defense F'ed that game away!
Tone E. Dungy....Super Genius.

Just let them punt even if your return unit isn't on the field.
Let the ball get downed or go into the endzone and go to OT.
What did he think he was gonna have a shot to win when the Titans were punting from the Colt 43?

He's as big a reason as Pey Pey as to why the Colts will never make, let alone win, a Superbowl.

I think the Colts just lost their home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with that loss, because I can see them losing at Jacksonville next week and San Diego winning out.

San Diego will stumble at least once over the next 4 weeks.

The question is will the Colts stumble twice? I say its very likely, Jags and Bungles are both hot right now. (So if the Pats run the table, a bye can still happen)

I am so sick of hearing the gushing over fucking Romo, I don't even think about hating Brady anymore. I hope somebody drills his ass so hard and he fucks up so everybody will shut up about him already. The hype is nauseating And BTW he's NOT banging Jessica Simpson (I also find her overrated and annoying) because she is with John Mayer, as recently as Thanksgiving.

So now I'm going to go off and brood and be sick. Maybe I can find a stupid TV show on cable to watch that has no football updates so I can not have to hear about all this shit anymore

as great it would be to join the eagles on the golf course, as has already been stated... this is the NFC we're talking about, where 8-8 might be good enough to make the playoffs.

if they go 3-1 in their final 4 games and finish 9-7, they get in.

regardless, i'll be quite happy if cocklin gets the can when the new GM comes in (acorsi's retiring). he preaches discipline, yet they are the most undisciplined team east of Oakland.

at least the play calling was good from the giants goal line up to the cowboys 10 yesterday... but once they got close to the goal line (and let's include the 4th and inches play early in this as well), cocklin's playcalling was typicaly predictable.

penalties & ineffectiveness inside the 10 yard line. that's the game right there. too many avoidable mistakes wasted what was really a very well played game by eli, shockey and jacobs.



at carolina, philly, new orleans, at washington. 3-1 gets them in gauranteed. 2-2 might, but they'd need a lot of help.

with as bad as the NFC is, all they need is to get in and they've got a chance. none of these teams... chicago, dallas, seattle... are unbeatable at home. esp. chicago and dallas.

Possibly. The one at Seattle might be tough, but I like their chances with 3 of the last 4 at home.

The trips to Florida will be very tough, but then again, the Pats have preferred the road this year, so anything is possible.

And all of the sudden that final game against Tennessee doesn't look like such a gimme.

indy and san diego are clearly the best teams in the afc... but come on now... does anyone reeeeeeally think that dungy/peyton & marty schottenheimer will both get to the afc championship game? i think not.

someone will figure out a way to choke somewhere along the line.

it's like everyone who was pulling for a cubs/red sox world series a few years ago... ya knew at some point one team would get it done, but both? in the same year? come now
