Webb looks as un-prepared to play tonight as the Packers look un-prepared to play against him

I'm going to call him #TheHypen. It hasn't caught on yet, on Twitter.

This should probably quiet the Vikings fans who were calling for Ponder to be benched for Webb earlier in the season. How did Bethel-Thompson not see any action? Webb was worse than the worst Tebow performance.

did anyone else have Garo Ypremian flashbacks when Webb threw those balls up?

At least Ypremian had kicking ability. Joe Webb doesn't appear to have any skills.

He can run, but he can't hide from Matthews or Raji.  Truth is, I got so disgusted I did not even flip on the 2d half.

the commentators say that flacco just needs opportunities. please. that guy is what's holding the ravens back, great rb, good receivers, good o line. It's amazing to me that Flacco wants to be paid top 5 qb money. Please.

If Flaccid gets them to the AFC championship game again they'll give him some redonkulous contract. :smh:

I actually hope Baltimore makes it to the AFC Championship game because then he can demand a huge contract despite the fact that 95% of his completions are lobs to receivers and dump-offs to Rice.

When it comes to Football, truly NOT a Ravens fan.  However I hate to root for Irsay who stole the Colts FROM BALTIMORE.  HATE Modell who stole the Browns from Cleveland to come to Baltimore.

I'm rooting for the coach who is fighting Leukemia, but its NOT working at the moment.

Bills end up with Doug Marrone as their new head coach.

Would have much rather had Lovie.

I thought Trestman would have been a good choice,  Marrone seems like random coach guy

Marrone will be a three and out guy. Two if he's as bad as I think he might be.

Montreal games were NOT attended well and had no media contracts.  Besides, it wasn't the Skins from Montreal.  Could care less about the Wizards, I like College Bball better.  Moves are based on Greedy Owners these days.

Everyone knew about the Expos.  They weren't moved out in darkness in the middle of the night.  As for Cleveland, they were well supported!  I went to college 30 miles east of Cleveland.  I remember watching playoff games on TV in a packed stadium, it was snowing, and a wind chill factor of 30 below.  Obviously it wasn't due to lack of fan support or media support!

No, Lovie is a guy that admits not getting "the whole offense thing".  Great defensive mind, just terrible as a HC and has a real hard-on for Abilene Christian guys.

Cleveland was the same as Seattle with the sonics- the city refused to replace an old venue (their right)  and the team responded by leaving (also their right)

Ranking Teams That Failed on Draft Day

No. 1: Seattle Seahawks

After one of the worst picks in the first round I can ever remember, the Seattle Seahawks didn't draft any positions of need or draft for the future.

Pete Carroll is proving why he didn’t make it in the NFL the first time. Not only was Bruce Irvin a reach at No. 15, the Seahawks proved they were oblivious to their madness by celebrating their selection.

As if the day wasn’t bad enough, Seattle selecting Russell Wilson, a QB that doesn’t fit their offense at all, was by far the worst move of the draft. With the two worst moves of the draft, Seattle is the only team that received an F on draft day.

Grade: F

Irvin will be a beast but nobody thought drafting a 5'11" QB was a great move at the time.
