    Vick is a wild card...and it must be damn near impossible for that line to read him since he doesn't really know what he's doing half the time himself. His receivers have said many times that they can't get a read on him on the line consistently because as soon as they run a pattern, they'll look up and there's Vick running to the corner and getting hammered, or dropping back and running back and forth before deciding to throw.

    Vick was amazing when he was younger, now he's just a back up at best...i think the future in Philly is going to reside in their team finding a good pocket QB that they can stand behind, and one that doesn't blame everyone but himself when the hits the fan and it wasn't obviously his fault.
    I have not seen Vick run as much this season, except when trying not to get sacked behind the line of scrimmage. On too many occasions, I have seen an opposing defense easily break through the Eagle's offensive line and sack Vick within seconds of the center snapping the ball. That is unacceptable, in my opinion, and somewhat suspect. Sure, he makes both running and throwing decisions that are not wise, but heck, as much grass and dirt that he eats "every" game, it's understandable......If the players have lost confidence in Vick's ability and/or style of play then so be it. Get with the coaching staff, the ownership and with Vick and make the necessary changes and if it results in a QB change, fine, but don't stop blocking for the man play after play. I hope that made sense....(laughing)

    I don't think it's a matter of them NOT blocking for him as much as it is that they don't know HOW to block for him sometimes. He eat's sh*t every game because he's known for being a wild card...he kind of does what he wants. QB's have to work with their line, not against them...and to me, and from what I've read, it seems he primarily works against them because they don't know what he's going to do.

    He has stopped running as much though, i think mainly because he's so beat up now.

    Thus far, I am impressed with the Niners' backup QB, Kaepernick, and it's always great to see Frank Gore do his thing. Oh, and did I mention that he's an alumni of the U?

    So whose the best currently gentlemen?

    I, of course, have my money on the Brady bunch. With or without gronk, the patriots have an undeniable offense!!!

    Texas looks good, Atlanta looks good, BRONCOS look good...
    Niners, bears, bucs, saints?? Packers?

    Patriots are good...not best (and I'm a Pats fan). They still have an atrocious problem on defense, they are very dry on receivers, they just lost Gronk and Hernandez is still very iffy, Woodhead is good in spurts but he could easily find himself sidelined as he has seen some bruising over the last couple of seasons and in the end, Brady is NOT himself this season...he's had some stand out games, but they've yet to really put together a string of really promising games, they've just beat some crap teams by a lot (as anyone should). The Jets will be no different, so this week will still not define anything for them...they are going to make the playoffs, but i doubt they make the big show this year.

    A few top dogs in my opinion...

    - Denver...Peyton is the man right now, and they are going to be a top running team going into the playoffs.
    - New Orleans...they are on an absolute tear right now, and Bree's is settled in. I don't like them at all, but they are making their way. If i were fighting for one of those last playoffs spots, I'd be nervous about them.
    - Houston...'nough said. They are just damn good...some weeks are better than others, but they are a tough and composed team right now.

    ...my Falcons are a front running team but they arn't playing very well right now, hopefully they make a statement against Tampa Bay this weekend, until then, I'm not going to list them as "Best" because i can admit they are not. Green Bay is another one...after this weekend, i will tell you whether or not i think they are one of the best teams.

    Niners and Bears are a weird situation...they have significant injuries, ones that could cost them dearly in the chase, but the 49's seem to have really made some ground with their rookie, Chicago, not so much...and if we've learned anything about Cutler, when he goes down like this, he doesn't come back the same anymore. It's a real shame too because Chicago has arguably the best defense in the league, and they are busting their asses to make people know who they are...I'd be terrified to play that team as an offensive player.

    Regardless of all that talk though...RISE UP! GO FALCONS!

    Did the Dallas Cowboys eat their Thanksgiving dinner "before" the start of today's game with Washington? They've been a no-show in this game, thus far.

    Locker room nothing... try sidelines... they had a close-up of the Jet's coach on the sidelines, and held it long enough for even me to lip-read him saying into his headset mic "F***ing unbelievable"...
