Back to the flex schedule issue...just in market size alone it makes more sense to have a Pats/Bears game rather than a Colts/Eagles game. Coupled with the fact that the Bears are the best in the NFC and the Pats are one of the top AFC teams. The Colts are currently the top AFC team, but the Eagles (when the game was selected) were a middle of the pack NFC team.

So only 2 things make sense...the Pats/Bears game was protected by Fox or NBC went for the 2 guys who do more advertising than anyone else in the league, "Cut that meat" Manning vs "Chunky Soup" McNabb, and if thats the case they got burned when Chunky sirloin burger with country vegetables got dumped into the diposal.

I recall reading somewhere that Fox made sure to protect the Bears-Pats game. It's been their number one game for this week since a month ago now.

Certainly if I were a Fox exec. I'd have protected it.

T.O. has stated that he will not send any well wishes to Donovan, when asked if he would return the favor for Donovan checking up on him during the whole pill fiasco.

Jeff Garcia will start over AJ Feeley for the Eagles in Indy.

Chizip's right. IMO, Most overrated QB of all-time = Brett Favre.

brett favre certainly sucks now... but over-rated qb of all time? please.

first, the guy is a warrior... he's never injured. ever. how many straight games has he played in now? do you realize how hard that is to do, esp. in football? aaron rodgers played 10 minutes and he broke his foot.

second, he's a super bowl champion on a team where he was clearly, far and away, the best offensive player.

favre was the last of a dying breed... the classic gunslinger, hard as nails QB.

you want over-rated? try picking a QB who breaks every record in the book but shrivels like a little pussy come playoff time...

When all is said and done favre's stats will likely be 2nd to only Marino in many major categories (and then probably passed in a few years by the above mentioned puddy-tat).
Coupled with a SuperBowl ring, the man is a no brainer hall of famer, and at this point in time one of the top 10QB's of all time. As Headache mentioned, his string of starts is almost superhuman, and the guy has something intangible, witness the Monday night game against Oakland a few years ago after his father passed away.
Sure he has a propenstity for the INT, but that alone can't possibly overshadow his accomplishments.

Plus he's probably the #2 all time great QB actor, right behind Terry Bradshaw and a notch ahead of Dan Marino.

I predict an Eagles victory.

I think he was a very good QB in his day, but I've never seen the media treat a player like the divine QB like him. Maybe not the most over-rated, but he's up there.

One of the main reasons he played in so many games is because he won't take a hit. He throws many of his picks by chucking a deep one with the D breathing down his neck. He also throws so many passes that just leave the receiver right into a hard-hitting, full-speed defender. These hospital passes have resulted in injury (Bubba Franks last year, I believe, is an example).

The media defends him to the death despite some serious issues. I think he's a likable guy, and is very good. I'm just sick of the media.

"If you take away Brett Favre's interceptions this year, he's having a pretty good year." - John Madden

I know it's Madden, but still.

Unless it's for a record breaking sack
