    It's become fantasy football and BB knows it. For the first time I'm actually not all that worried about having a defense for the playoffs. No defense can shutdown a great offense now, it's just not too damned hard with the way they call games now. The 9ers and Ravens aren't going to make it past the 2nd round, one of NE, NO, or GB are winning the superbowl.

    I wish we could see the return of defense, but with the new rules and way they call games, not only does the offense have a big advantage, but we will continue to see the best players go to offensive positions where their skills can be best utilized. Why put a beast on defense where they can't breathe in the direction of an offensive player when they can be unstoppable on offense as a TE/WR/RB. It really is only going to get worse.

    Note: Did anyone catch on Felger and Mazz that they changed a specific QB rule this year. In the event of a change of possession, a QB CANT be tackled/defended. Forget the "unnecessary roughness" against a QB on an INT return, now a new rule states they can't be touched even if they are going in for a tackle! It's becoming flag football...

    There was a play at the end of the Pats/Bills game that truly spelled out to me that the rules in this league have changed so drastically it will be a passing league from here on out.

    Late in the game, the unnecessary roughness call on McCourty. Saying he hit a "defenseless" reciever.

    He essentially hit the receiver a split second after the ball got there, not with his helmet, and really not all that hard.

    Essentially db's now need to wait to see if the Receiver catches the ball before they make any kind of contact.

    Essentially every DB not named Revis has to give the recievers a 5 yard cushion for fear of getting penalized for occupying space a receiver may or may not wish to occupy.

    Regardless though, the Saints to me look like the best team in the NFL at this point.

    It's not up to the DC. It's up to the rules committee.

    The fact that 3 of the top 4 teams have terrible defenses should really be a wake-up call.

    Thats absolutely added to the extra yardage. I wouldn't go there just yet though. We don't think we are the best, even though we fight on forum for it. Playoffs are so different from the regular season because you need a coach that understands 1 and done,and you have to play your best ball, Now, and every game. Right now, out of all the teams PiTT and NE have the only coaching staff that understand that. Maybe GB, NO, NY has some experience, because we have been there, done that. Out of those 3 only our coaching staff was humiliated in seattle.
    Maybe that lesson learned pays off, maybe not.

    But Pitt and NE have the most experience to deal with the playoffs. I think, so they are the best.

    Does anyone know if Indy retains their spot on the committee with Polian gone? Maybe we can get back to football and allow some contact.

    I'm rewatching the Pats-Giants game, and that Giants pass rush is absolutely murderous.

    I've lost count of the number of times the pocket immediately disintegrates on Brady, or never even gets formed.

    The Giants, when they're on, seem to have an answer to the "passing onslaught".

    They are completely a momentum team, and that is absolutely scary. Once things start going their way, the D-line and the QB light it up...

    Giants might have the best DL in the NFL. JPP, tuck,and umenyiora ? OMG
    I think the Falcons are toast, and GB will have their hands full. They never faced the Giants full DL. Were not even sure our #1-5 OL can stop the giants DL. We are understandablely worried about the Giants. We think they have the talent to crack any of the best offensive lines.

    I'm watching the Orange Bowl with a first-half score of 42-20. I'm sorry, but I find football like this boring. It's like basketball on grass. Now I'm wondering why the college game is going this direction.

    maybe because we make villains of guys like Harrison that want to kick your ass, take your QB and crush him, and don't care what you think. How many fines would L.Taylor have today ,lol. LT would not have cared, he would have ripped Bradys head off. But its a different time. for some reason I don't think Pats fans would be to happy seeing Brady beatin up, and complement the defensive play. Do you?
