    And we would’ve gotten to play the saints again? No thanks. I’ll roll the dice on the bears hopefully (albeit unlikely) extending Mitch.

    He didn’t look too terrible yesterday. 33-42 passes, 252, 0TD, 1 INT. Obviously the big one is 0 TDs though...

    Not a huge stat guy, I thought he looked pretty bad. He played to not make mistakes and when he did take chances he didn’t look good. Honestly I’m going back and forth because if the Bears win that pretty much gives the packers a bye to the championship game

    Ok, who here saw Pittsburgh being nothing more than the Browns speed bump today?

    Yep. Lost 4 of their last 5 regular season games, including week 17 against the Browns. They imploded in the 1st quarter of the playoff game.

    Yeah, but just barely losing in week 17... when the Steelers didn't even play their starters.

    The Lions are parting ways with Stafford. I'd love if the Vikes had a way to get him, but it's not happening.

    I’m gonna guess he ends up on Indianapolis with Rivers retiring.

    Houston would be so dumb to trade Watson...

    I agree, but if he's ticked off at them, they might not have much of a choice.

    That sucks for them. He's a great QB.

    Buck has never bothered me. He's not incredible but he's fine.

    Sorry, was supposed to be "excessively"... phone auto-correct chose the wrong word, didn't notice.

    He's always intolerable, today is excessively so. He can't get his nose out of either QB's rear.

    If you like your play by play guys to be blind to mistakes made in game because "QB greatness" fine. Buck never sees the mistakes made real time to call an honest game when he's shoving his nose up like that.

    That's why he's always been intolerable.

    Al Michaels is a good example of an honest play by play guy who can show respect to a all time great, but still admit that not everything they do is all time great all the time.

    All that said, I am a fan of Troy Aikman as a color guy... he calls it as he sees it, and has even had the old "eye roll" inflection in his voice at times when Buck goes over the top with his gushing and feels the need to counter a bit.

    Some people just enjoy complaining, I guess.
