I was married to a coach for 34 years. I love football.
University of Nebraska
Although to be honest I don't really care for football; I just cheer for our team when they play.
In a sense. I lost him to cancer 6 years ago. But he still walks with me. And he still cheers for the Huskers.
It's ok. I talk about him all the time. Not a forbidden topic at all.
Don't be sad...celebrate with MM (if I may be so bold) her cherished memories.
I am Australian but I love American Football too ( I love Aussie rules also).
But I have to be careful as I only get a few games and I have to record them as they are on at some ridiculous hour for me - so I have to make sure I don't find out scores before I watch the games.
I like the Packers and the Steelers and the Bills... I cast my net wide as I don't live there. :)
Bills suck, they lost to the Jets... HAHA.. JK (stands for just kidding)
Love to watch football with the husband, Patriots all the way! (yah, I bet I make some enemies here. LOL)
I hate the Saints.... They are overated just like the Steelers.... ARGGGGGGGGGGGG....
Sure!!!! JK... They are gonna go undefeated until the super bowl they are gonna lose...
So basically your just gonna say that you don't like any football team in the NFL but the Jets, and then say mean stuff to people whose favorite team is not the Jets?
The over-rated Saints win again! Anyone else have a good weekend?
packs killed the Raiders...... Demolished..... Jets killed the chiefs, 37 to 10
I'm a fan of 2 teams.
Team 1 - The Giants that beat the Patriots and Cowgirls and almost knocked off the Packers
Team 2 - The Giants that got annihilated by the Saints, Seahawks, and twice by the Deadskins
Playoffs: Giants win their last 2 games and grab the 4th seed.
NFC: 1. Packers, 2. Saints, 3. Niners, 4. Giants, 5. Falcons, 6. Lions
Niners over Lions, Giants over Falcons, Giants over Packers, Saints over Niners, Giants over Saints
AFC: 1. Steelers, 2. Patriots, 3. Texans, 4. Broncos, 5. Ravens, 6. Coin Flip
Texans over Coin Flip, Broncos over Ravens, Broncos over Steelers, Patriots over Texans, Broncos over Patriots.
Superbowl: 0 - 0 Tie after 3, Manning wakes up with his top 4th quarter rating in the NFL, builds a 14 point lead with 4:59 to go. Tebow scores a TD with under 3 to go. Giants go 3 and out. Tebow scores a rushing touchdown with 37 seconds left to go. Manning takes his 4th quarter magic to the next level, and gets them in field goal range with a second left, Giants kick a 49 yard field goal down the middle, and win 17-14 over the Broncos, same score they beat the Patriots with!
Um, no. Tebow will never beat Ray Lewis, so the fallacy of of Broncos over Ravens just doesn't work for me. Plus, the Patriots proved that Tebow is human, so then it becomes Ravens over Patriots.
Oh, and the NFC will definitely be Packers over Giants. Niners over Ain'ts. Packers over Niners.
Suddenly your Stupor Bowl becomes Ravens 10 - Packers 7
OK I will be the first to admit it, but I don't think I am alone.
I do not like football. In fact I dislike it so much, I don't even want to hear it on TV even if I'm in another room.
Many people have tried to explain the game to me, but my mind goes to it's happy place. I can see their lips moving, but it doesn't compute because I have zero interest.
Also, as far as I can determine, a football minute lasts forever. (it seems)
Go ahead let the bashing begin. I can take it..
That's fine that you don't like football. Your entitled to your own opinion.
Not a problem, pollux. I love football, but then I've been in love with a football coach for 40 years.
Your "Packers over Giants" and "Ravens over Patriots" theories have just gone to COMPLETE SHREDS!
At least I got half of it right! :-)
Giants SMACKED the Packers, and Baltimore's kicker can join the Vanderjact club - A club for incompetitent kickers.
Giants 34, Patriots 31, Victor Cruz catches one on the helmet on his way down in the 4th quarter!
Actually, that loss is not on the kicker, it's on the refs for calling a touchdown an incomplete pass.
As for the final game, really am not caring any more, since I don't want either team to win. :>
That's what I always hope for when Dallas plays Washington.
Best game of football: Dallas vs Washington, nothing-nothing tie, everybody gets hurt!
I think the same thing about Philly - Giants. Or Philly-Dallas. Or Giants - Dallas.
Or Steelers vs anybody.
#41 - Deadskins fan?
Also, Steelers vs "anybody", if the Steelers play your team, you want everybody on your team hurt?
If it means they don't suffer through another humiliating 4-12 season, yes.
Weird, you say 4 and 12, your Deadskins went 5 and 11, not 4 and 12. The only 4 and 12 teams were the Brownies and the Yuccaneers (Or feel free to change the Y to an F also)
#47 - LOL, I sure as heck am glad it wasn't.
Giants rule the NFL, and he surely rule the Patriots!
Now the real question becomes, who do we start with for 2012 on Kickoff Thursday? Options are:
Green Bay (A marquee matchup)
New Orleans (Ditto)
Pittsburgh (A "decent" matchup)
Philadelphia (Come on, Really?)
Washington (Pa - Leez!)
Tampa Bay (Is this the Pee-Wee league?)
Cleveland (Uhm - do these guys even play football?)
Gian'ts don't play the Colts next year. NFC East plays AFC North. As for the Giants, Steelers and Browns are at NY, Giants go to Baltimore and Cincinnati.
Biggest mistake the Jets ever made, and an even bigger mistake by "Tim Teblow".
Denver made the playoffs because of their Receivers.
Denver made the playoffs because of their Runners.
Denver made the playoffs because of their Defense.
DENVER DID NOT WIN BECAUSE OF TIMMY TEBLOW!
And he had the Chance to go to Jacksonville. That would have been perfect for him. New York ain't going to tolerate "2 for 8 with 55 run plays". He's going to get screamed at by the fans if he ever goes on the floor with more than 5 minutes left in the game.
Plus, it won't matter. Giants are getting the ring for the thumb this year!
Denver made it to the playoffs because of their DEFENSE!
Denver made it to the playoffs because of GOD!
God sent Denver to the playoffs because of the great cristian, Tim Tebow not teblow!!
And Mark Sanchez sucks!!! Tim Tebow will make the team better.... God will make the team better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sanchez is 100 times better than Teblow will ever be. Problem is, Manning (take your pick which one), Brees, Roethlisberger, Romo, and Rogers are all 100 times better than Sanchez! I'll let you do the math for how they compare then to Teblow.
Denver had one and only one weak link, and is why they couldn't beat teams like the Patriots. That weak link? QUARTERBACK!
Teblow will be booed off the field in East Rutherford! He'll be lucky if he sees 25 snaps this year excluding garbage time (i.e. Jets up or down by 30+)
First, Sanchez SUCKS!!! And that is coming from a guy who pulls for the Jets!!!! Tebow is way better!!! OOO Wow they lost to the pats!! Big woubtie dou! They won against the Steelers because of Tim Tebow, once again not Tim Teblow!!! Watch and see the Jets are gonna get better when they put teblow in the game!!!! Mark Sanchez cant even complete a pass!!!! He either throws it behind the wide reciever, above the head, or too out in front!!!! And we got some of the best wide recievers in the league: Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress!! I promise you the Jets will do something this year!!! And yes he couldve went to Jacksonville, which is where I live!!! But Im glad he didnt!!!! Cause I pull for the Jets!! And plus what is he gonna do in Jacksonville? NOTHING!!!
"Mark Sanchez can't even complete a pass!!!!" - That is the biggest joke I have heard in my life. Case in point:
Week 11, the week the Jets played the Broncos: Sanchez, 24 for 40 for 252 yards, Teblow 9 for 20 for 104 yards, neither had a TD. Over 50% vs under 50%, 252 vs 104. Sanchez is no Manning, but the numbers say themselves.
Let's add on to that the fact that Teblow went 2 for 8 for 69 yards the week before against KC and 9 for 18 for 143 yards the week after. So in 180 minutes, Teblow went 20 for 46 for 316 yards and 50 points (17 vs KC and NY, 16 vs SD, and that was OT, so more than 180 minutes). Uhm, Sanchez had more completions than that in fewer attempts in a 60-minute span, and only 64 less yards in 120 fewer minutes time!
And CORRECTION! They did NOT win against the Steeler because of Teblow.
First off, Denver had the lead, and lost it to Pittsburgh on a last minute drive, so no "Tebow Time".
Next, on the single play in overtime, Teblow did NOT make any type of impressive pass. Eli Manning (speaking as a Giants Fan) heaved one into the endzone that was caught at the end of the 2nd quarter, and threw many passes where the ball was IN THE AIR for 30+ yards.
Teblow made a "West Coast Offense" type pass, like 10 yards or less, and the DENVER BLOCKERS combined with the running ability of the DENVER WIDE RECEIVER is why they beat Pittsburgh with the 79-yard pass play. It had nothing to do with little Timmy Teblow!
I'd rather have Tommy Maddux than Teblow any day!
Looks like youve done your research!!! Listen to this, who won the game between the Jets and the Broncos? I think the broncos did... How did they do it? Cause of tebow time!!!! It doesnt matter about stats it matters about winning... And Tebow can get it done in the fourth quarter... Who cares about the first three... The last one counts the most.... And plus Sanchez cant get it done in the fourth!!!
#58 - Oh yeah? Where was Tebow in the following games? Let's not forget, it was Orton only for the first 5, then the bye. Week 7, Tebow enters, so yes, these are HIS FAILURES:
Week 8 - Detroit 45, Denver 10
Week 15 - New England 41, Denver 23
Week 16 - Buffalo 40, Denver 14
Week 17 - Kansas City 7, Denver 3
Wild Card Round - Denver's final score in Regulation came with 6:13 to go, Pittsburgh scores 10 Unanswered
Those weeks weren't "Tebow Time", they were "Teblow Flukes!"
Tim Teblow was the Weak Link in Denver. With Peyton, if his health doesn't take him out, Denver will be in the Superbowl.
SB XLVII: Little Bro - 31, Big Bro - 24, Giants get that ring for the thumb!
