Levels of QB:

1) Brady, Rodgers
2) Brees, Big Ben, Wilson
3) Rivers, Cousins, Flacco
4) Who cares

Cousins is not in the 1st 2 categories, because he needs to improve on faking the defense out, and winning in more ways in the red zone. He is at times, a tad too aggressive, needs to sometimes take a sack or throw it away. Make quicker, right decisions in the red zone.

Cousins is very close, and I hope with Defillipo's help, he'll move into the next higher tier, get more early leads, blow more teams out, and be successful in the playoffs.



Flacco is not in tier 3. He won a Super Bowl with a killer defense and that's all that's ever happened. Honestly he is mediocre.


I agree he is not a top 10 QB, but he was unstoppable in that Super Bowl run.

Rams are going nowhere. One and done in the playoffs if this shit keeps up.

I agree. Based on the the current Rams performance, and our performance vs the Saints (lost essentially on 2 unusual turnovers) I feel that we can go on the road to either team and win. I might even go to a Rams game if it comes to that. I got a nephew out there that I could probably spend a couple nights sleeping on his floor.

Thanks to that Broncos safety who let Torrey Smith get behind him on basically a hail mary. But he was great during that run. Foles, Eli, Flacco, Wilson (as a caretaker) it doesn't have to be perfect.

McCarthy getting savaged while ARod gets no blame. Didn't Rodgers bounce(maybe it was tipped) the 3rd and 2 pass to wide open WR before they decided to punt.

Who's to blame for burning the TOs? They called them because play clock was about to expire. Was it McCarthy slow getting play in or was it Rodgers slow to get everyone up to speed on the play call?

I didn't see the game, but I'm going to say it was all Rodgers' fault, just because I hate that guy.

Must be sort of significant if they are already ruling him out.

Jimmy Graham had a fractured thumb injury against Seattle, he might miss the Viking/Facker game.

He's getting additional tests/second opinion. Right now saying multiple weeks, but they might have to shut him down.

Big loss for them, might be their best defensive player.

Super Bowl hangover perhaps. Hopefully you are correct and they continue to disappoint well into next season. The media in Philly like to eat their own young.

Redskins driving to take the lead, Alex Smith throws a 100 yard pick six in the endzone. Redskins down 17-7 at the two minute warning.

Carolina stalls in the Red Zone then Field Goal hits the upright. That is now 5 kicks off the uprights in the last two weeks against the Lions.

Johnson out in Detroit, Questionable to return. Carolina drives for a TD and misses the extra point. Tie game.

I love the idea of going for 2 at the end of the game to win it vs attempting the kick to force OT and hope chance favors you and/or you an make a # of plays offensively and/or defensively. One play close to the goaline for all the marbles..that's what I would do every time.

Maybe the best MNF game of my long life, last night.
Fully expected Mahomes to pull that rabbit out of the hat.
Just became a case of trying too hard, at the wrong time.
That level of offense is something we don't see here.
We've changed the NFL game twice, imo.
First with Frans/Foremans/Burnsie's short passing game, then with the bombs-away '98 squad.
Those two teams last night are revolutionizing the game again, imo. And it's fun.

About died laughing, at THE GENIUS McVay killing a whole 8 seconds off the clock late after the huge turnover.
That took clock management to entirely new levels we've never seen before.
He might be Glen Mason and Denny Greens love-child in that regard.
"what's the worst thing we can do right now, to kill some clock here?"
