Hi Doug Go Raiders !!!
Go Ravens and 49ers..
The Niners win by fourteen and the Patriots win by ten. The Pat opponent isn’t ready for Brady’s evisceration of their secondary but the Pats will try to run a lot today, keeping it a low scoring game. In honor of Bender, the Gints don’t have the speed to stay with the Niners.

Bob Irsay... *spit*
FOXBORO (CBS) New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, speaking from Gillette Stadium on Friday, remembers back to when he first met Tom Brady.The 22-year-old Brady was just as confident as the 34-year-old version that takes the field every Sunday for the Patriots.
I still have the image of Tom Brady coming down the old Foxboro stadium steps with that pizza box under his arm, a skinny beanpole, and when he introduced himself to me and said Hi Mr. Kraft, he was about to say who he was, but I said I know who you are, youre Tom Brady. Youre our sixth round draft choice, recalled Kraft.
And he looked me in the eye and he said Im the best decision this organization has ever made. It looks like he could be right.
Would love to see an East Coast / West Coast match up with NY fans crying in their ketchup clam chowder.
I agree. I'm not fond of any of these teams (being ‘Boys fan) but, the Giants and Patriots can definitely go pound sand.
Im the best decision this organization has ever made.
especially when he had that frightened deer-in-the-headlights look back when the Giants sent him and the Patriots packing several Superbowls back.
Yeah, I mean, who puts ketchup in Clam Chowder already? So blue collar.
Wow Patriots and Ravens. Guess I gotta hold my nose and pick the Ravens......
Giants and 49ers. Will be the game of the day and actually should be the SuperBowl.......... I think Eli becomes the Top Manning in Football.
I don’t have a dog in this fight but expect two excellent games, with a 49’ers and Pat’s Super Bowl.
I would like to see a former Bears player who played under Ditka make it to the Super Bowl..
Sorry. The Giants are on a bigger roll. They are the under dogs with the opinions of others. I love it. If they beat Green bay by upset on Green Bay turf. It will be a Giant victory on west coast real estate too.
Eli Manning is smoking hot in the last couple of games. He is on a roll.
IMHO! Oh the bravado we have this time of year for our teams!! It is a fun time of year. May the best team win!! Going to be a Fun day!! LOL
Marking.... back for kick-off.
I live about 40 miles north of SF and it started raining here about 7 AM this morning. Has continued all day. It will be wet and muddy for the game.
Of course I'd like nothing more than to see another Manning beat Brady in Indianapolis.
Steven Tyler butchered the National Anthem.
I just heard the 2nd half of it....
Was it just my imagination or did the entire stadium boo him?
A cargo plane?
I thought the same , but I do not know... quickly muted the TV....
Personally, I don’t think this game is gonna be very close. I think Brady is gonna eat em up.
I could not tell over all the caterwauling!
I won’t forget and the Ravens and Art Modell can kiss my ass!
BAd start for the Ravens.
How so? I admit I wasnt listening all that closely. Did he butcher the lyrics? From what I heard of it, he sang it pretty straight, no crazy embellishments. I was expecting it to be worse to be honest.
Art Modell can kiss my ass too!
He sang it correctly, he just didn’t sing it well.
A very straight rendention, I agree, and entirely satisfactory. I thought maybe he paused before "brave", just to play on his controversial "home of the Indianapolis 500" finish a few years ago. At that time I thought, "Well ok ... just don't do it again." And he didn't, at least this time.
I thought that given Steven Tyler doesn't sing all that well to begin with, at least to my ears, I thought he did a pretty decent job, he really could have gone all crazy like he does with his songs, but he tried to sing it pretty straight - IMO. But then again when I heard it announced that he was singing, my expectations were pretty low.
lol I dunno but after seeing the flyover I actually found this thread because I knew freepers would tell me what it is.
I will check back later
I thought he would have better range.
I agree. His voice was never sweet music to begin with, and factor in his age his performance exceed my expectations.
The lack of excitement in this game thus far is palpable.
That would be awesome!
What the NFL and Bob Irsay did to Baltimore cannot in any way compare to Art Model and the Browns moving to Baltimore. Cleveland has a team again and they are called the Browns and all the history and memorabilia of the Browns stayed in Cleveland unlike what happened to Baltimore.
Unlike Indianapolis, like most former Colts fans, we in Baltimore were not rubbing it in Clevelands face and were very supportive of letting Cleveland keep the Browns name and memorabilia and supportive of them getting an NFL team. Art Model showed class; Bob Irsay OTHO was a lying cheating drunk.
Lardarius. I love it.
I’m gonna die waiting for Cleveland to have a viable team again.
Well, it’s been a big ol “puntfest” hasn’t it?
I think the more intriguing matchup is the NFC Championship tilt.
