Excuse me, Denver is looking for its football team...

Any Denver Broncos fans here? What the heck happened?

Darren McFadden is what happened. Holy hell what a stomping.

But so goes the NFL...nothing is ever a given. That's why I love it.

Yeah, that was pretty crazy. I don't know if that says more about the Raiders or the Broncos.

The Raiders seem to be slightly better than previous years, but . . . .59 points at Mile High? Inexcusable fail by the Broncos defense.


I, on the other hand, being a Packer fan, have a small spring in my step of late.

It's our ambush strategy. Watch a 10 win streak come our way now.

Besides, it's the AFC west... at the end of the year, an 8-8 team will host a 11-5 wildcard from the AFC North...LOL

That "wild"ambush strategy seems to be the way to go, just ask the Cowboys and a few other teams.

Well with the "flag" football rules in effect just watch the scores go mile high. We should have some 3 digit scores soon!

Mr. Bell is something special but the real story is what Mike Munchak is doing with the offensive line. Yes, the line has two high priced 1st round picks but after that it's cast off city. In the salary cap era, he is delivering HUGE $$$ savings for the Steelers.

I heard he has an incentive program that is akin to "do your job, or we'll trade you to Cleveland".

Go Orange. Steelers need the Broncs to take care of Kansas City. We'd love to see you'll in the playoffs. . . . . .



. . . in Pittsburgh.

Kelce 10 yard slant right to left across the middle? Okay. We'll just keep watching it all night long. We won't even change our offensive play.

Hey, it worked in Houston, right?

Fun -- but very cold game. It was only the second time I've had to put foot warmers in my boots for a Steelers game (even if I made it to the third quarter without).

I'm worried about KC though because Ben's been throwing too many pics.

As a Steeler Fan, it's tough with the Patriots and Cowboys looking so hot in the playoffs.

I was hoping for some fresh blood in the Playoff Pool. I'm out on Seattle. NE pisses me off. Pitt is classic NFL (back in the days of the Sabol NFL films lore), but I don't like Big Ben. KC makes for a great story. That's the best game this weekend for me. That's old school football.

Then you have the storied Cowboys this year. I don't like Jerry Jones, and I'm not a fan of their play. That leaves Matty Ice, and his high flying Falcons and Greenbay to root for. I can't root the Cheeseheads, they play in the NFC north and my boy like the Lions. But I don't think a Falcon lead NFC will make the bowl.

So, let's go Falcons Greenbay for a shootout. Against whoever can beat NE...?

Agreed on both counts. The League owners are their own worst enemy. They are either blowing up their teams or recycling stale (staid White) coaches. Either way, the fans get alienated and lose interest.

Absolutely. And doubly so for Steeler fans. Do you know the legarrette blount saga how he got himself cut so he could resign with the Pats? Can't stand 'em.

I don't like Ben either but the SI story was unfair. The guy is the dictionary definition of entitled jock but I know he's trying to make amends. I'm at Latrobe this summer with my son and Ben is taking more time than usual to sign autographs (he wasn't scheduled to practice that day). Any way, we're towards the end of the line and there are two 12-14 year old boys beside us. Ben signs for the two boys and starts to pull away. For some reason, he stopped came back and signed a shirt my 10-going- on-11-year-old-son was holding up. It's not like we were calling out to him or anything. He did it on his own. Going to Camp was a huge surprise for my son but getting that autograph took it to a whole other level -- so I can't malign Ben too much.

Agreed. I've always respected KC but am not an Andy Reid fan. I hope we crush them.

HATE the Cowboys though I like the young guys. The only good thing about the Cowboys being good is that that they mop up the floor with the entitled Giants.

You listen to Bomani Jones? He's hilarious about Atlanta. I can't ever like Atlanta because Jerry Glanville coached them. And if you know anything about Chuck Noll and Jerry Glanville, then you understand.

Total respect for Green Bay -- especially with a Pittsburgher for a Head Coach Check out the recent great SI story on the Coach. When we go to Pittsburgh and go through the Turnpike Plaza, I call it the Mike McCarthy memorial tollbooth and I guilt my kids with his story, telling them that's what it takes to succeed in this world.

I'd love a Green Bay re-match. . . . but getting a second shot at the Cowboys would be great too.

See, this is the sort of thing that needs to be showcased. I blame the leftcoast. Everyone makes mistakes. Hell even Von Miller was on the wrong path till Ware stepped in to correct him. I believe in giving people a shot at redemption.

Number of Steelers head coaches since 1969: three. Number of Popes since 1969: five.

Happy for your win. The underdog in me wants a new face holding that trophy. Go Matty-Ice

The Pope comparison is apt. Only three coaches, I've ever known. Nothing else like in sports.

If the Steelers can't take it, I'll be happy with Atlanta winning.

If the Stillers dont win the only possbile outcome is if the dirty birds take it. But a healthy KIller B will be hard to beat (Esp with no Gronk)
