    Fuck the Cowboys and Jerry Asshole Jones.

    I wish Tony Romo would play elsewhere as I have a soft spot for a kid from EIU making good.

    Bears deserved their fate.

    Wow this game is boring. I’ve seen more scoring at a Mormon nursing home. Romos got the jits and Griff has the noodle arm. Please dont be a 6-3 final.

    @BGinCHI: I have a feeling Romo will retire as a Cowboy. He’s just now approaching the age when QBs start to lose their shiny for the young bucks coming up through the college ranks.

    JasonF says:

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but Secretary Clinton has been hospitalized with a blood clot.

    Here’s hoping for a speedy and full recovery.

    Also, a hearty “Fuck you” to the assholes who have spent the last few weeks snickering that she’s got “diplomatic flu.”

  17. 17
    Yutsano says:

    @JasonF: Oh you KNOW Malkin is already trying to prove that Clinton is actually sitting at home rather than resting in a hospital. Or someone from the wingnut welfare brigade is on that case.

    Fuck the Cowboys. And fuck Chase and this Happy Holidays ad where they lie about being for he little people. Makes me want to gag every time it’s on.

    Oh, and my Vikings live to see another game, so I’m happy and I have decided that in addition to AP, I love that little Blair Walsh.

    Some guy in Austin says:

    It’s not easy being a liberal Cowboy fan, but I was raised in Irving, not far from Texas Stadium. I will always be a Cowboy fan.
    I like to say, Romo doesn’t suck…all the time.
    For Dallas, Romo is as good as it gets. He certainly has problems, but they aren’t going to get a better QB for some time. He’s a very likable guy. That goes a long way.

    Jerry Jones? I f*****g hate JJ.

    Corner Stone says:


    Also, a hearty “Fuck you” to the assholes who have spent the last few weeks snickering that she’s got “diplomatic flu.”

    We know she already got Vince Foster. And most likely she led the teams that got Saddam and Qaddafi.
    This doesn’t even take into account her outspoken desire to have a certain presidential rival assassinated during primaries.
    Is there no end to her bloodthirst?

    Just got home from giving a former coworker a ride home from work on this chilly evening. Was listening to the game on one of the Sirius channels in the car. Glad to see we got this thread. But, hearing the dulcet tones of Al Michaels, I may mute the TV and go back to the Sirius radio station for audio.

    @Steeplejack: An argument for getting Sirius, if they are actually in synch.

    Worst part of Vikings game? Listening to that pig scrotum Joe Buck mangle the English language. “That throw to Nelson changed the whole field.” Really, dumbass? It changed the field? Was it suddenly no longer field turf, did it become natural grass? He said it about 6 times and I almost chucked something at my lovely tee vee every time.

    @Some guy in Austin: as a fellow liberal Cowboy fan living in TX I’d say Romo is a lot better than that and then some. When it comes to Cowboys suckage, Jerry Jones is the droid you’re looking for.

  53. 53
    redshirt says:

    @Oltrol: Denver is a tough place to play, no doubt, and the Pats have not been historically good there.

    However, the league’s number one offense has been missing its two best players (Gronk and Hernadez) most of the year, and both will be back 100% for the playoffs. Too many weapons on offense, and the Pats D is the best it’s been in years.

    And Manning will choke. Book it.

    The radio link above is on a slight delay, but I fiddled with the DVR buffer a bit and got the audio and video synched. I kind of like this setup: I’ve got NBC’s picture and the rough-hewn, old-school commentary of Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff with Larry Michael on play-by-play.

    ’Skins are heating up.

  62. 62
    Spaghetti Lee says:

    @Suffern ACE:

    Eh, this stuff comes and goes. NFC East hasn’t had a 9-win champion in years, so I’ll write this off as one of those weird things. A few years ago, the NFC West champion had 7 wins, now 3 of its teams have at least 7 wins. The NFC North was pretty bad from 2002-2008, now it’s one of the best divisions in football.

  63. 63
    redshirt says:

    @efgoldman: Yep. And not just the coaches/staff, but the QB. The Patriots have had 3 starting QB’s over the last ten years. The Browns have had something like 25.

    Even a great coach can only do so much without a great and healthy QB.

  64. 64

  70. 70
    Alison says:

    @Anya: IANAD but from what I heard from a doctor on CNN and from people elsewhere: 1) The fact that they found it is good in and of itself, because clots are most dangerous when they go unnoticed. 2) That they are giving her blood thinners means it is nowhere near her brain, which is obviously good, too.

    I mean…I’m still super worried, but it does sound at least somewhat routine and again, good that they found it and are taking care of it. Fingers crossed, though, seriously.

  71. 71
    JasonF says:

    @Anya: I’m not a doctor, but the articles I read suggested that the fact that she’s been hospitalized is a good thing — they can treat her with blood thinners and at this point, her treatment should be fairly routine (knock on wood).

    Jay C says:

    @JasonF: @Yutsano: @Anya:

    Secretary Clinton – whatever problem she has/had/might have is in one of the best hospitals in New York (NY Presbyterian) – wherever her clot might be (and so far, there has been no confirmation that it is related to her previous head injury) it’s better she’s somewhere where it can be properly monitored. Here’s hoping it’s something non-major…

    But that hasn’t stopped the wingnuts though: I’ve seen some online chatter: apparently a State Department spokeperson was somewhat snippy in shooting down a rightwing rumor about how this latest injury was related to Mrs. Clinton (& Bill) having gone off to the Dominican Republic for some pre-New Years’ partying, and the wingers are all butthurt over his bad attitude in brushing off their BS….

    So it’s looking like three rookie QBs (RG3, Andrew Luck, and Seattle’s Russell Wilson) have led their teams to the playoffs. One season does not an NFL career make, but it wouldn’t surprise me if a decade or two from now, we look back on this as the Class of ’83 redux.

    Gotta feel a little bad for Morris. He just ran for 200 yards for a season total of over 1600 yards, and yet he won’t even get the most rookie of the year votes of players on his own team.

  131. 131
    Corner Stone says:

    @a hip hop artist from Idaho (fka Bella Q): Honestly? If I’m J. Jones I’m not sure I wouldn’t put Tebow in that offense.
    And I’m no big supporter of Tebow. But Romo is just balls out bad. Winning 8 or 9 games a season for years in a row isn’t a mark of awesomeness. Especially with that front line defense DAL has had.
    Next year their DB’s will be much better. Claiborne is a natural badass that will just get better if he listens to his coaches.
    Seriously. DAL should dump Romo, post haste.

  132. 132
    Corner Stone says:

    Tebow has to go to Jacksonville. That is what I said since he was in Denver. That’s where he makes the most economic sense. Puts butts in the seats and wins 8 to 10 games a year.

    As someone who took this view when I lived in Washington, DC, I’m thrilled to take it while living in Washington, AC. Skittles at the next meetup!

    @The Thin Black Duke: I don’t need anyone to tell me shit about Tebow. He’s awful as an NFL QB. He has a throwing motion steam locomotives can beat from start to finish.
    But, with no bullshit, I’d take Tebow as my QB on the Cowboys next season ahead of Romo.

    I love that the NFL Network cut off whiny ass Romo and went to other commercials instead of listening to him bitchout.
    You suck Romo!

    @Steeplejack: What the hell is that commercial for a Scotch where a mean not-young red-haired women yells at you and opens the bottle savagely and calls you “Angus”? That one is just inexplicable to me. It’s like it’s promising that if you buy their product you’re going to wake up in a bathtub with your dick missing.

    @Jim C:

    You might be right, but which one is The New Todd Blackledge?

    Tannehill and Weeden both showed a fair amount of promise in some ways, but also performed horribly in many ways, so either one could be this year’s Blackledge. I think (including Luck and RG3) that’s every QB who was drafted in round 1.

    In round 2, you had the guy who played behind Manning in Denver — I think he got ten or fifteen minutes of playing time.

    Round 3 gave us the aforementioned Russell Wilson and Nick Foles, who didn’t exactly set Philadelphia on fire. Then again, he was a third round pick (late in the third round, no less), so expectations shouldn’t have been that high.

    Beyond that, I think we’re dealing with people drafted low enough that the Blackledge comparison just doesn’t seem fair.

    I like Weeden on account of he’s old (relatively speaking), so I hereby crown Ryan Tannehill as the future Todd Blackledge of the Class of 2012 (though I kind of hope he proves me wrong).

    Romo is only guilty of being human, you get in his grill with pressure he makes a bad throw or a bad decision… y’know, kind of like almost every other NFL QB.

    Still…. way to go ‘Skins!!!!!!!!! WOOOTTTTT!!!!!!!!

    I’ve been liking Win8 so far. It’s been great on my HTPC with the free Media Center pack and quite likeable on my gaming PC after adding Pokki (for the start menu) to it.

    Just don’t do silly things like disabling hibernation on it and it’ll be fine.

    I’ve decided that there are only a couple of ways to reduce the violence in NFL games:

    1. Make them use the same protective gear as America’s Game: wear baseball caps. If you knock off someone’s baseball cap, you sit out the rest of that series, and your team can’t substitute. Actually, just ruling too much impact puts your side down a man might do it.

    2. This may be more appealing. Make each player keep a dog with him during each play. Down linemen get bulldogs, receivers and corners get greyhounds, etc. Your dog has to keep wagging his tail in order for you to stay in the game.

    Who has a better thought?
