No, Miami is not even close to the level of Patriots .. in coaching or player talent

New England I hate personally..because they cheat.. do I think they are talented.. gosh yes...

I wouldn't be surprised if they don't beat them by 30 points. The little boost Miami got after firing
their coach is about to fall of a cliff.. I told my son I would wear a bra around town (outside shirt)tomorrow if
Miami wins tonight.

Post Re: Around the League - Week 8
yeah right now unless something weird injury or something...

weird happens we are looking at GB/NE CAR/NE ARI/NE or Bengals Superbowl I don't think any other teams
have much of a shot currently. Maybe Brady or Rodgers goes down..

I mean the vikings have a very poor chance ..with a good OL maybe decent to fair chance.. I think
we are a year out and believe me I hope we sweep the pack and somehow when a ring..I just am trying not
to get to drunk on purple koolaid...

I'm not ready to write off most of the league. Every year two or three teams surge in the second half and at least one of those teams you just mentioned will lose their first playoff game.

If I had to choose right now, though, it's hard to say it wouldn't be GB/NE.

The Cardinals won't make it past the first round of the playoffs.

The important part of the season hasn't even come yet, early season wins are all well and good for positioning yourself to make a run, but December is when we start to figure out who the Contenders and who the Pretenders are.

Much as I hate to admit it, my lease favorite team (gb) and my least favorite QB (brady) are the obvious class of the NFL. Everybody else is at least a notch down. I'm hoping for bad luck for GB and NE.

Take the source with a grain of salt but if true...what in the world...?!

Jeremiah Ratliff - DL - Free Agent

Ex-Bears DT Jeremiah Ratliff allegedly claimed "I am the devil" and "wished staff members' children would die" upon his release last week.

Also, according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, Ratliff said he "felt like killing everybody in the building" and returned to the facility one time after getting his pink slip. It's pretty safe to say Ratliff, 34, won't be getting another opportunity in football. His career is likely over.

An extra 7 in there, but yeah, that Denver D is pretty good. Thats why im so glad it looks like the Vikes are going heavy on D first. Praying Waynes is as good as advertised, Denver's corners had as much to do with the win over GB then anything.

I agree, the things that have given Rodgers problems in this game are things we could be doing really well when we play them.

I normally don't like being this lazy, but I'm feeling tired today: does anybody know when the last time the other three teams in the division lost in one week but the Vikings won?

77 Yards is unreal I bet cheddar heads everywhere just got a rude awaking. How interesting this is, I remember just last week how all the people were saying the packers had the division all locked up, now we're only a game back. 3-0 in our division, things are getting to a point where the media may think we're competition.

@DK Without looking it up the last one I remember was the first game a season or two... or three ago. Sorry mate I'm still half ran over by the Miller truck.

Anyone watching the Carolina/Colts game? In OT now after a 17pt 4th qtr comeback by the colts. Wouldn't have mattered if Carolina didn't miss an XP. Colts got the ball and kicked a FG and now Ginn just dropped a wide open TD

Rude awakening? lmao no. We are 6-1, unless someone actually thought we were going to do go undefeated, this really isn't much. We lost in one of the toughest places to play with our number 1 CB and second round CB knocked out early. It was quite lame, but nothing earth shattering.

Im curious what has given Rodgers problems, in your opinion? Aside from the Broncos D that is.

Niners bench Colin Kaepernick; Blaine Gabbert to start

Quote:
Three years after leading the San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl XLVII, Colin Kaepernick has been benched in favor of a quarterback with a 5-22 record as an NFL starter.

The 49ers have informed Kaepernick that former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start versus the Atlanta Falcons this week, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, via a source informed of the situation.

Kaepernick faced a locker-room split, per Rapoport. The organization's decision makers stayed with the 2012 breakout star as long as they could, but dysfunction on offense could no longer be ignored.

It'd be funny if the 49ers season wasn't so sad.

Oh alright. But it'd be significantly funnier if it was Green Bay.

It's not a Rodgers problem. It's a team problem. The team has depended on Rodgers to win games for them for 4+ years. They forgot how to win without Rodgers behind center. People can talk all they want about Peyton Manning, but Denver is winning as a team, not as one player. Same with the Vikings. They are winning as a team. I have been saying it for years, stop Rodgers, stop the Packers. If Rodgers throws 1 TD or less on the road the Packers lose 70% of the time.
