Damn son, if I was Williams, I'd GTFOH post haste.

that's some venom staring at him.....
That is right tackle Anthony Davis. He's only been in the league for two seasons, but he's already one of the toughest and most vicious players in the entire league. Kyle Williams should probably have his dad send the Dunnkey to be his bodyguard for a while.

anyone see Ray Lewis' post-game interview - absolutely amazing.  He's coming back next year.

Basically they asked him about Cundiff, he stated that no single player wins or loses a game, that we win or lose as a team, and that we're going back to Baltimore with our heads held high because we never stop fighting for that city and they never stop fighting for us.  He said he was going over to talk to Cundiff to cheer him up.

He did say that they will go back home, get right back to work, and come to next year's training camp "pissed off."

New England's secondary is going to get shredded if Eli has time to throw.

they aren't really that good.

Tends to happen when you run a WR not named Troy Brown out at cornerback.

The Pats' front 7 absolutely dominated the line of scrimmage today, so if they can do that again, their secondary can be protected a little bit more.

Should be a good one.

Sorry Ravens fans, was a tough one to swallow.

That was the weirdest thing I've ever seen. No, not that a wide receiver was playing cornerback. I mean a white cornerback. When was the last time that happened?

stupid question about the ravens game, at the end the WR had the ball in the end zone but then had it slapped out of his hand, how long does he have to hold onto it before it counts?

Lot of debate going on about that. I was actually surprised that they didn't review that one. I thought that he didn't hold onto it long enough.

PatsNats, you created a gambling model and you're only 18?

Damn kid, you smart!

It's a power ranking model that I regressed with spreads to predict them... also, very little of it is original work, like 25%.

On a touchdown, from what I understand, you have to have complete possession of the ball beyond just the two steps in the end zone. The Calvin Johnson TD at the start of last season raised a ton of controversy about that.

Isn't that only when falling to the ground?

I believe you have to do a "football move" to complete the catch, or something

As for Evans, he had one foot down and the other one was coming down when he dropped the ball. I think for it to be complete, both feet needed to be down.

Yeah, that's what I thought when standing up, like Evans was.

I think it's totally different when someone's falling to the ground, which pisses me off.

What if a player makes a catch while appearing to be standing up, but then starts falling to the ground the moment they make a football move with possession of the ball?  Do the rules change?  They should just use the same standard for both situations.

Apparently Terrell Suggs called Skip Bayless a douchebag on ESPN First Take this morning.  :clap:

All I have to say is.....it's about time someone did it.

I'll have to find the video of it.

Edit: Found it
