    Nobody was talking about a GB rushing attack until that one game...be honest with yourself, the Packers didn't have a ground attack peep until that one game, and they didn't do anything with it against Atlanta either...didn't need to, Aaron Rogers prison raped us.
    actually, if you watched them from the beginning of the season to the end, you'll notice the amount of backs they were using dropped (started using 5-6 a game) while the amount of carries increased. yards isn't everything as rushing keeps the clock going. in the beginning of the season, they would pass on 3rd and 1, 2nd and 1 or even have Rodgers sneak versus giving it to a back to punch through a hole. towards the end, that changed. that is what i was referring to.

    and yes, everyone was talking about their rushing attack, just not in a positive light. a lot said that w/o it, they would lose a lot of games because when passing, they would stop the clock if the receiver didn't catch the ball or they were pushed out of bounce immediately.

    I have a feeling the Jets are about to get exposed, not to take anything away from beating the Pats, but their swagger doesn't fit their caliber of play thus far, they show gem stones in certain areas at certain times, but they've also played some poorly prepared teams, i think the Steelers will MAKE them put all their puzzle pieces together, and i have not seen that from the Jet's so far in the late regular season and the first 2 rounds...just my opinion though.

    I thought it was pretty obvious i was talking about anyone speaking on their rushing game in a positive light...which didn't start until the end of the season. I understand that it changed at the end of the year, that was my whole point, there was no supporting talk about the Pack's rushing game until they had a rookie break out, period...and i'm still not convinced they actually HAVE this "found" rushing game, i guess we'll see against the bears (in what is expected to be a blustery game, which will prob support more ground attack).

    Alrighty...picks for the day (though with the way the season has gone thus far, this is prob a completely useless exercise, lol)

    Packers/Bears = Packers by 14
    Steelers/Jets = Steelers by 3

    ...which translates to Bears winning by 40 and Jets winning by 642.

    Two fantastic games today. I'm looking forward to a Green Bay / Pittsburgh Superbowl. It will seem a little nostalgic, but I expect it to be at least as good as today's playoff games!

    I love being right...Rex Ryan literally looked like he was holding in a gigantic terd as mad as he looked during post game interviews, he was so angry that his terrible sportsmanship finally caught up with him...it wouldn't matter though, they would have been obliterated by the pack.

    And as much as i know it wont happen, i hope the Steelers upset the Packers...long shot, and with the 3 games played thus far, Pitt deff has the tapes to watch to see what exactly has to be done to Rodgers to make him fail...so we'll see what happens.

    The difficult reality is though...Green Bay Packers = Super Bowl Champions (95% certain).

    Oooooooooo I on the other hand am not a packer backer. Steelers all the way. They will stop Rogers. It's going to be a tight game. But I'm picking my Steel City by 3.

    Roger Goodell to cut pay to $1 in event of lockout - ESPN

    Roger Goodell ready to cut pay to $1

    NEW YORK -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he will cut his salary to $1 if there is a work stoppage after the collective bargaining agreement expires in March.

    Goodell, who makes about $10 million a year including bonuses, says in a memo to his staff that chief negotiator Jeff Pash will do the same. Pash makes nearly $5 million a year.

    But Goodell emphasizes "the entire senior leadership team stands with me in its commitment to resolving the CBA issues with the player's union."

    NFL owners opted out of the agreement in 2008.

    It's hilarious though that these guys actually make people think that their salary is their sole source of income, like they are doing a "noble deed" hahaha...these guys make so much money outside of that salary that they just giggle when they throw that out to the public to appease critics.

    I don't think we'll have a strike though, too much money to be lost all around, even the hard headed people in the NFL and the commission will avoid losing that substantial amount of cash.

    Meanwhile, teachers in Wisconsin who make considerably less than a million dollars, are no longer allowed collective bargaining rights at all.

    There's something very wrong here.

    Methinks that pro sports (pick your poison) has grown far too big for it's own britches. I remember when football, hockey and basketball players used to play for the love of the game. Sure they got a salary, but nothing like today's over-inflated salaries.

    When did pro athletes become bigger than the game? Bunch of whining, egoistic, jingoistic prats.

    And when did basketball players become cry-babies to boot?

    The NFL has been insane to watch the last couple of days...Falcons picked up Ray Edwards today, so we have some help on the DE side, which is a beautiful thing.

    And a little known player but something i was so happy to see today...my boy Joshua Nesbitt was picked up by the Bills today as a back, and I'm ecstatic that he's going to get a chance to play in the league, there were a lot of people who thought he'd never get there.
