Dallas get the win over Cleveland. :dejection:
DAMN you BROWNS!!
It would've been nice to see the Browns, Jags, Cards & Rams win.
I still need the Chargers & Steelers to lose today.
Patriot's TE Gronkowski has a broken forearm.
Out 4-6 weeks.
Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet New England reports X-rays show Rob Gronkowski indeed has a broken forearm.
Both Mike Garafolo of USA Today and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport report Gronk's timeline is 4-6 weeks. Although they are different kinds of players, the loss of Gronkowski may force the Patriots to act with more urgency on Aaron Hernandez (ankle), who's been practicing the past two weeks but has not played in games. Gronkowski is such a valuable player to New England's offense that he figures to be kept on the roster, rather than placed on injured reserve, in hopes of a very late-season or postseason return. It's obviously a crushing blow to fantasy owners, as well. Gronkowski was the No. 1 overall fantasy tight end through ten games.
Steelers D is giving this game away...smh
Pop Pop!!! And now your out for a couple of weeks lol damn what a hit!!!
The Ravens won. lol, what a long weird season. 8-2 and really should be 3-7. :snicker
Living in a country where our SuperBowl equivalent (in rugby - the Rugby World Cup) is every four years, and not having won it after 20+ years (except last year escaping with a 1 point win) - you take the wins no matter how ugly your record is.
So if we win the SB or just limp into the SB and somehow win it, but ugly - you won't be seeing me complain. :)
This is partly why I'll take a QB like Flacoo 9 times out of 10. Sure he'll have weird off days (but never really games that he'll lose you - more like games that he could've won you) but he's capable of great things that you keep that because it's hard to even find something half of that (just asl the Cards and other teams needing a QB).
Winning is winning lol
9er's and Bears tonight who you got!
Tough one man. Hear both starting Qb's are out but Chicago's backup Campbell has the experience edge. Might just come down to which defense scores more points ha.
Hey imINxile, was the game fun to watch? Or one of those sloppy frustrating to watch kind? I know they were trailing most of the game, but how did they do?
The defense had some costly penalties, but they are also the biggest reason that Pittsburgh still had a shot to win the game.
Props to Byron for giving one-hundred percent and not getting spooked after a couple of big, blindside hits. He did everything he could to help the Steelers win, but it wasn't enough. Tomlin probably should have put Batch in towards the end of the game when Byron was clearly hurting and the throwing game was suffering.
Mike Wallace is proving the Rooney's right and I don't see him getting the huge extension he's looking for next year.
Ravens fans have to be even more upset with Torrey Smith than Steelers fans are with Mike Wallace. Smith is a deep threat, sure, but he lacks any other skill set and scarcely goes over the middle for the tough yards. He has been wildly inconsistent and lacks the ability to stretch the field consistently and open up opportunities for Ray Rice and Anquan Boldin.
On the other side, Wallace has also dropped too many catchable balls and sometimes causes fans to question his effort, but he has been one of the only scoring forces on our offense thanks to his big play ability.
Antonio Brown being sidleined also drastically changes the Steelers playcalling approach.
Though, that's where Cam Cam comes in....
Though i don't think most Ravens fans are really upset with him - we realise he was raw when we drafted him and are just happy with his current production based on the player he was, thus far.
Don't think Wallace has played badly up to this point either - I think a lot of fans were pampered by the fantasy numbers put up by a lot of offensive players last year.
Fans need to temper expectations and remember that stats are for losers. :p Steelers need to keep as much of their receivers as they can, especially if Ben is out, QBs lke Leftwich are not going to make avg but fast WRs look good.
But I do get the merit of letting him go/trading him too.
PS: Wish that most fans, albeit Steelers ones, are like this guy - too many times you see butthurt fans complain and abuse.
LOL Jason Campbell...smh
As I stated before, the thing that separates me from many typical "Picksburgh" fans is the fact that I am capable of rational thinking and bipartisanship.
You guys won. Do I think you are the better team if both of us are healthy? No. It's close, but I think we have the coaching advantage that makes so much of a difference but often goes unnoticed. Both teams are good, I just wish both were at full strength so there wouldn't be any doubt.
Leftwich has broken ribs and is out for next week's game. The Steelers signed Jeff George (ugh) but will most likely start fan-favorite, Charlie Batch.
Plaxico Burress has also been signed (double ugh) which leads me to believe that Brown will miss extended time (triple f'n ugh).
So, let's recap my sports season so far....
Reds finish at the top of the NL Central but are bounced from playoffs after dropping four straight to the Giants.
WVU's football team starts off by torching defenses and leaving head coaches stunned only to get into the meat of the Big 12 schedule and get thoroughly embarrassed. Even in close games they find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Steelers, after battling back from a slow start, start to look impressive and as if they are finding a rhythm only to suffer an onslaught of injuries to their top players and playmakers. And their back-ups. Leading to the signing of Plaxico Burress. And Jeff freakin' George.
I haz a big sad.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for 'heated' rivalries; but that shouldn't mean at the expense of rationale and respect. Did I hate it when Hines Ward smiled when he was in winning games, or did I hate the hair bobbing up and down for a pick/sack? Damn right.
But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate them for what they are too.
Nor should any other fan just because they have per-conceived biases or that they think it belittles their team in doing so.
Case in point, certain Falcons fans not giving Joe any credit because they presumably feel that it takes away from what Matt Ryan has done, and vice-versa (not calling anyone out on this board).
