I think his family is pretty conservative.
There family lives in small area right outside
Chico, CA. Chico State was a wild party school
but the town and school pulled the reigns
after some serious problems. Munn is known
for extremely sexual comments and skits from
G4 show. Northern California is pretty conservative
compared to Southern California. I heard he
missed his brothers wedding or something too.

The OT quarter in last night's Cardinals/Seahawks game was wild. I don't think I've ever seen two kickers miss from so close in overtime before.

Smart.
@TomPelissero Bill Polian says on @SiriusXMNFL there was a lot of discussion at NFL office today about expanding the number of players who can come off IR

The Raiders/Bucs game today got pretty crazy.

Carr and Cooper were on fire and the Raiders ended up winning. Carr is really playing well. I sure wish the Vikes had drafted him.

Anyway, I disliked the Raiders for a long time but I like Carr and Cooper and it's good to see former Vikings players and coaches like Tice, Del Rio and Musgrave having some success (as long as it's not against the Vikes).

Carr looked really good today. So did his line in pass protection. Dude could make some hard-boiled eggs in the pocket before anyone got to him.

Yes, it really helps to have good pass protection! I was watching a little of the Patriots game too and I swear, on one play Brady had enough time to take a nap before throwing the ball. Crazy.

The Falcons pulled off a comeback win to beat Green Bay and the Lions lost to Houston so a Vikes win tomorrow would put even more distance between themselves and the other teams in the division.

Carr has surprised me, I saw him play in college and never thought he was anything special other than the big arm. Certainly helps to have a guy like Cooper but he's done very well for himself. I'll get to watch him again in person when they play KC in December. Should be a good matchup.

That could be a great game!

I had a good feeling about him coming out of college and he's turning out to be even better than i thought he'd be. As you said, it helps to have Cooper (Crabtree is no slouch either) and their line protects him well too (Tice at work!). ;)

we will get Starks back but Lacy is going to have to contend with Shields for the IR exemption.

That was quite a game tween the Chiefs and Broncos tonight. Too bad someone had to lose.

McCarthy won a SB with 15 starters on IR, the QB he was brought in to develop has become the best in the league under his guidance, the Packers since McCarthys hiring have been the 2nd most accomplished team in the league, right after the Pats. (Not counting the enigna that is the Giants)

Anyone who thinks he is a 'Dud' doesnt know much about football.

I think they've had the talent to do considerably better than that, especially against weak opposition. For example, they got 60+ games against what were mostly lousy Lions, Bears, and Vikings teams in that stretch.[/quote]

By the numbers the NFC North hasnt been that shabby over McCarthys tenure, or is this another one of those times where the numbers are wrong and dont know what they are talking about but you do? ;)

I think you guys will like this one! SSF’s Very Not Top Ten Coaches: Jim Caldwell. I wanted to fit a few coaches into one post, but my passion took over.
Not easy being a Vikes fan and staying an "unbiased" creator of Sidestream Football. This is my therapy. SKOL.
