Well, that's swell. Nothing like a little domestic tranquility to get up for the game.

Still bummed about the Buncoes beating the Patriots. Am watching "The Replacements" as dessert!

Well, based on comments from all the other threads tonight, Harper's wife must be a Steeler fan, this is Joey Porter's fault, and will be used as an excuse by the Colts should they need to.

Speedy recovery to Mr. Harper.

I sense an impending Colts collapse - if not today against the yellow and black, then next week vs. Denver. Too much off-the-field crap. People like to say that stuff don't matter but sometimes it does.

From local reports, it sounds like this isn't the first time police have been involved with them. Not sure on the details of previous incidents.

Sounds as if she really wanted to get back at him for something. Stab him in the knee, end his career and with the end of his career comes the end of women throwing themselves at him. Of course, I'm sure she never considered herself as having thrown herself before him or, of her lifestyle after football with him coaching Middle School Football.

I once knew a rugby player who had a buddy that was like a brother to him. His buddies wife left him and he thought the wife was fair game.

After having sex with the ex woke up because his buddy was sawing through his Achilles tendon with a knife. How's that for irony.

His buddy then shot the wife who escaped and then shot himself.

Personally I think there was a lady involved.

A handful of replies in the other "NFL live threads" People still crying about the Palmer hit, calling the Steelers cheap shot artists, saying their only chance to win is by taking out Manning.... that sort of thing.

"...the Steelers cheap shot artists..."

If you get a chance, take a look at the January 16 issue of Sports Illustrated. Flip to the Leading Off section on page 6. It has a great photo of the Steelers' DBs (Carter, Taylor, Hope and Polamalu) being separated from Cincy's TJ Houshmandzadeh by a ref. I'm buying this photo and framing it.

"Stab him in the knee, end his career"

But how asinine is that because then she will also be destroying her standard of living.

I see women do the same thing in the military when disgruntled soon to be exwives try to defame their husbands after they are already entitled to a portion of his retirement. They end up making it so miserable for them, they get out before 20 out of spite and guess what 50% of nothing is.

I have to get a new monkey's paw. Peyton was supposed to get stabbed in the knee. This guy won't make a difference in the game.

"I once knew a rugby player who had a buddy that was like a brother to him. His buddies wife left him and he thought the wife was fair game."

I once knew a scrum half like this from Brokeback Wyoming. He and his friend were tight. He was attached at the hip to his fly half. He turned down the offer to go to the pros, because he wouldn't leave his buddy's behind.

The Redskins' Taylor's spitting and impending trial on brandishing a gun were a huge distraction for Washington.

Any woman considering marrying a football player should watch North Dallas Forty, and then don't whine if you go through with it.

It will be today if at all. Though the Patriots lost, they showed Denver to be the frauds they are. Whoever wins today's game will represent the AFC in Detroit.
