Default Re: For whom are you rooting? Wild Card Weekend

Escaped with a push taking 49ers giving 3

Bet more on my Colts win than on my Eagles and fucking Bengals losses so all I lost net was the vig on my losses

If I ever try to bet again on Andy Dalton in an important game please figure out some way to shoot me first

Aside from one rotten game (which by no surprise involved the Bengals, Dalton, and Marvin Lewis) it was a very entertaining opening playoff weekend

Fun post-game fact from Terry Bradshaw - the Red Rifle in Cincy has 1 TD and 6 picks in his 3 playoff appearances

Goodell and the owners are rooting for more ratings smash downs like this

NBC NFL Football Saints/Eagles 30.09 million
ABC Over the Hedge 2.67 million
CBS How I Met Your Mother 1.57 million
FOX Almost Human -R 1.70 million

The NFL is like a drug dealer to addicts - it can charge the networks whatever it wants

Andy Dalton = Playoff Tony Romo

One must emphasize 'Playoff' Tony Romo, because we all know Romo doesn't make the playoffs anymore.

Peter King agrees

Call pass-interference somewhat close in the postseason to the way you do it in the regular season, zebras.

http://mmqb.si.com/2014/01/06/nfl-pl...quarterback/6/

At least the refs decided to put away the flags for both teams in the Green Bay-49ers game

NFC teams who think they will be able to have PI called the way it was in Green Bay yesterday if Manning or Brady make the Super Bowl are in for a shock

He was actually looking to see if that gopher had escaped or had been squished.

He slipped on something right before he jumped. It's not as visible from this angle.
