As a Sants and Texans fan, I am still trying to figure out how Matt Schaub made the Pro Bowl.

Well nice misinformation as usual about the Jags, The GM was fired yesterday , and the first year coach and staff are on a wait and see (discretion of new GM) Jacksonville is an awesome town, the second smallest market but rank 20 in attendance.The Jags haven't had a blackout in over three years The team was gutted last year to make the sale of team more feasible, Today begins the new era in Jaguars . Been sitting front row since game 2 of 1995 season

“Art Modell is dead...maybe it’s time to move on?”

What a silly comment.

I wonder if the folks in Baltimore are dispassionate about the Colts?

Do you think the St. Louis fans don’t care about the Cardinals?

NFL teams try to play up the hometown team loyalty angle, until they find a better deal. And in doing so, create long term ill will when they move on. Art Modell was simply the catalyst. The fact that he’s dead means very little to most Cleveland fans. I will acknowledge there are some who would love to pee on his grave. I’m not in that group.

He’s also an entrepreneur who has built a multi billion dollar business from scratch.

And in Mussolini's Italy, the trains ran on time. During the reign of the National Socialists, autobahns were built. Sure a Mohammedan may have the streets smarts sufficient to build a business but that murderous cult's overarching goal is destruction.

Agreed. There is another metric to the game however. Caveat, I had no interest in who won that game. The rules have become a deterrent and allows for the “changing” of a game based on dubious calls. I watch football for the “entertainment” as you have said when I have nothing else to do.

I am a true baseball fan however. Baseball, outside of an inconsistent strike zone or the occasional blown call all things are even and based on player production. The game is played without much interference and critical penalties being called (yes I know there are exceptions but they are also very castigated when they happen).

Case and point two issues I have are the interference calls and helmet leads. I always see RB’s lowering their heads and hitting a defender’s helmet head on to make yards, but they never call it and by the letter of the rules it is illegal. Let a LB or DB lead with a helmet and the flag comes out. Another is the interference. You watch offensive receivers and they are always pushing off and using their hands but almost never get called whereas the DB’s always seem to get it when the O needs to extend a drive and in the last 2 minutes. At least do away with spot of foul, make it 15 yards and auto first. A 45 yard penalty is ridiculous and a game changer.

Just like the NBA (that I stopped watching over 20 years ago) instituting the 3 pointer, allowing traveling by the “stars” of the game, ignoring the boxing matches under the rim, it is all about running up the score to make the game appear more exciting. Also, raise the goal at least a foot then it will be a game.

A good football game is 17-14, 21-17, not 45-40. The skins and the Vikings showed yesterday that while a passing game can strike quick, a running game still controls the game (with a good defense). NFL is starting to look like 6 man football.

I missed the game yesterday. Did the Chiefs win? I figured they might since, while they suck, it would take away the #1 draft pick!

My favorite play of the season, was when the Chefs thought they had scored a touchdown, and then did "excessive celebrating in the end-zone," resulting in a penalty. But the best part of it was when the reply judges ruled that it wasn't a touchdown to begin with. So not only did the TD get called back, they still got hit with the penalty!

The problem with the Vikings -- speaking of Fran Tarkenton -- is that being Minnesotan, they were too enamored of "Minnesota nice" to ever air the ball out downfield the way Kenny Stabler used to.

It's like the Twins -- despite being among the best hitting teams in baseball, like, forever (Killebrew, Tovar, Carew, Oliva), they never won; so the Vikes, with some of the best receivers in the NFL over and over, never did more than rinky-dink 5- and 10-yard passes.

That's what makes Adrian Peterson so amazing: the Vikings winning with a running back? Maybe Tom Clancy's plot in The Sum of All Fears is more realistic than I thought. (The Vikes were in the Super Bowl due to a running back, when the nuke blew it up.)

Cheers!

I grew up a huge Cowboy fan. The first plane flight I ever took was to go see the Cowboys in the Cotton Bowl with Don Meredith, Don Perkins, Bob Lily. Good Times.

I dropped the Cowboys like a hot anvil when Jones bought them and fired Landry the way he did. I still cant stand to see his face. (Unfortunately, I immediately adopted the KC Chiefs just as Marty S. came to town)

And yes, the reason the Pokes are so average is because of bad ownership, namely him. Tom Landry to Jason Garrett?

Ok....then continue rooting for the new Browns. I’m just saying that I don’t see what geography has to do with it.

The Ravens/old Browns are in Baltimore, Modell IS dead...same franchise, new city...get over it.

I’ve moved on from the Lions (Lie-downs); follow the Packers now. At a certain point (for me: 45 or so years of failure) one has to divorce a team, which is geographically close...but has become far from one’s heart.

For me it was time. Like a wife one no longer loves.

He wore the headset on the sidelines for years. It wasn’t even connected except at the end of the game so he could order post game pizza!

Take Cry-Baby Cutler with you!! I want a Head Coach with some EMOTION when his team sucks on the field. Bill Cowher...come on DOWN!!

This is what kills me about the NFL. How can you be called for excessive celebration when replay indicates that what you're celebrating never happened? The Vikings got a penalty for 'taunting' yesterday on a play that was later overturned by replay, but the penalty on the non-existent play still stood. I can see letting a roughness penalty stand but this stuff just makes the NFL look like nerdball.

I recall the Vikings in the 70’s winning with a running back by the name of Chuck Foreman.

Those 'Lions" aren't even a real NFL team. Top to bottom, they have no problem with losing year in and year out. At this point, they're just satisfied with having a couple high profile players like the megatron guy and that big doofus on the D line that kicks opposing players in the balls.

Sorriest bunch of little girls ever to grace a gridiron.
