If you’re not a woman, please turn in your Man Card at the nearest TTM(Testosterone Transaction Machine). Teams don’t win Superbowls because you like their coach so much.

you must be from Wisconsin

Your ability to do simple research is only exceeded by your ability to make an ass out of yourself. Congratulations.

Where in the world is Big'ol?

“The Drive” in the Browns-Broncos game was the absolute best drive I have ever seen. I was in awe. And my team ended up losing that game.

Well I'm rooting for the following teams:

Cardinals even though I think they are going to lose..
Titans, Jeff Fisher used to play for the Bears..
Bolts, they are better than the record indicates. If it wasn't for the blown lead and the bad call they would have been 9 - 7 or 10 - 6. Plus their defense has improved.
Jiants and Iggles.. I hate both of the teams.. I just hate the Jiants (since they are from New York), as for the Iggles I hated them since Buddy Ryan was their head coach...

Well that's a game that I think has been overlooked. What about you?

One of my favorite divisional games was the "Mud Bowl", when the 49ers came to Green Bay back in 1997 and played in rainy but mild conditions that tore up Lambeau Field.

Yes, divisional games are when the greatest NFL games are played. I'm looking forward to today's and tomorrow's games, should be classics.

Reason #73 that women should make snacks while men watch and discuss football.

I suppose we could turn this thread into a discussion about cooking, if you like.

Best football food:

1. buffalo wings

1. chili

3. pizza

4. Subs

5. ?

Yeah, you’ve had some great ones. Even though Terry Bradshaw acts so goofy as a comentator and takes himself so lightly, I remember that he lead a great team to four championships and I think he’s your #1.

Your self-importance is only exceeded by your ignorance. I see nothing on your link that tells me where you’re from.

Wow, you are a moron. See the little flaggy thing in the upper left hand corner? There's a clue for you Sherlock.

If you really are that dumb you just might be from the Land of Obama.

You're right. Women shouldn't watch football. They don't appreciate it like men do.

What team do you play for? Were you drafted after high school or college?

Are you telling me there are no NASCAR fans in Wisconsin? I’m sure they would be offended. Maybe the stereotype of NASCAR fans being stupid hillbillies is true, but trust me, there are plenty of stupid hillbillies all over this country, including me.
Why do you insist that I should be clarvoyant enough to know where you’re from and continue to ignore the fact that my only contention with your first post was that you included the Packers in your inference that expected teams were not in the play-offs?

Ladies and gentleman...traintown57...the latest graduate of the Illinois Village Idiot Academy, following an extensive education by the publik schools in the Land of Obama, has identified this flag as a NASCAR flag, thus fully outing himself as a DU troll type.

Anybody care to help him out with what state flag that is? Or is it better to let the troll bask in his ignorance?

Predictions; last week 4-0, against the spread 3-1:

Ravens (+3) at Titans

Rookie QB way over his head and on the road (should I say more?). Ravens D is over rated. While most games are physical this one will be ridiculously physical. Titans are rested and for real, for one more week. Close game and fun with low scoring.

Conditions: Around 50 degrees, 80% chance rain, wind 10-20 mph with small gusts

Titans 20 - Ravens 13


Cardinals (+10) at Panthers

Bet the house, the car, the dog and the wife. One of the easiest games to pick all year.
You talk about luck, the Cardinals fell in a bucket of it last week.

Conditions: Around 50 degrees, 40% chance of rain, wind 10-20 mph.

Panthers 37 - Cardinals 17 (17 if they get lucky again)


Eagles (+4) at Giants

Gees, another easy game to pick. McNabb will revert back to his pre-benching pattern and might be playing for Detroit next year. Oh, it is so much fun to listen to Eagle fans cry and whine where I live. I wish they would pull the upset and keep an Eagles/Steelers game possible. But I am afraid there is no hope. It won’t be a blow-out. But class prevails here.

Giants 24 - Eagles 13 (maybe 16 because of Akers)


Chargers (+6) at Steelers

Toughest game to pick by far because the Steelers offensive line is (still) suspect and the Chargers D has gotten stronger to make it this far. Two things will be possible factors here:
1. The field surface has been replaced again during the last three weeks and nobody knows how it is going to play. It was soft and starting to pull up during the Steelers last game. If it is slow it will help the Steelers, if it is hard (20 something temperatures) and fast it could help the Chargers.
2. The punters. Yes the punters. The Burgh has the worst and the Bolts have the best. This could be hugh for field position.

Conditions: Around 26 degrees, looks like no rain but cold small winds 5-10 mph.

Steelers 27 - Chargers 20

Really, big... you know you cannot believe anything you read on the internet!

You asked me out... over the internet! Said you were sterile!

Hey, that's not mine! I do the Swirl... clockwise like Puddy does!

See, Arthur, every time you get out of "Seinfeld"... they pull you back in!

At least you didn't make love to her... wearing my puffy pirate shirt!

No, but I did... wear your hat and medals.

"Where did Joe Montana play in PA? ;-)"

He played at Ringgold High School about 30 miles south of Pittsburgh. He dated my sister-in-law while I was dating my future wife. That was the year he played on the basketball team too and won the State Championship for Class AAA. Few people know about that achievement.

Actually I think the reason that game is forgotten is because it occured on the same day as the immacualte reception. I believe that day is referred to as “Black Saturday” in the bay area.

I disagree about the Cardinals....we finshed our tackles and controlled the kick and punt YAC against us...our only consistant divits.

..when we played Carolina in October we played smash mouth, not luck and twiddle dee stuff.

..in this year we also smash mouthed the Stillers and we won, Dallas and we won and just now, the Falcons.

..as a rule the reality for Cards fans was...”if it’s sunday, we’re down by 20” but not anymore.

..and with 10 points in our pocket too ?

Hope your wrong on that Eagles-Giants pick, although I must agree McNabb’s inconsistency is always a big concern.
When I analyze this game I come away thinking the Eagles have a real legitimate shot of winning, but the intangible of playing the Super Bowl champs at their stadium after a bye week will alone be difficult to overcome.
GO BIRDS!

I’ll never forget the 1982 Chargers - Dolphins game.

” The game is remembered not so much for the records it set — most points scored in a playoff game (79), most total yards (1,036) and most passing yards (809) — but more because it pushed every player involved to his limits.”

“I’ve never felt so close to death before,” said Chargers tight end KELLEN WINSLOW.

What is your problem? I am a woman who follows and watches the NFL just as much as any man. I know just as much as most guys out there. Also just as the guys who follow the NFL appreciate the looks of the cheerleaders, we gals enjoy the good looking men who play the game. That doesn’t mean we are “ditzy” or know any less.
