    Pretty soon Manning’s name won’t appear anywhere in the record books with the exception of largest forehead to fit inside a regulation sized helmet

    How the hell do you score 51 points with 5 turnovers vs one of the alleged top defenses in the NFL?

    Times are changing and I don’t like it. Gonna be the “get off my lawn” guy soon I guess.

    It's OK for them to make money off their sports programs, but emphasis has gone too far in the direction of big business vs. maintaining the ideal of intercollegiate sports as foremost a part of the educational experience.

    Missed calls =/= a top-down scheme to fix a season or even a contest.

    He’s certainly a contender, but will probably need to do lots of HGH to catch up

    Oddly enough, I'd argue that clinging to the outdated idea that college sports are part of the educational experience has done more harm than good. As one erudite philosopher of our age put it, "we ain't come to play school."

    It might seem "outdated" and overly idealistic to some, but education remains integral to college sports as athletes have academic requirements for eligibility.

    Pretty clear the saints were getting away with late hits on favre the entire game - too many for me to think it’s a coincidence. the saints were clearly trying to knock favre out, which makes sense in light of bountygate, and referee pete morelli just stood there watching.

    Hey, Dungy was right about something for once (the 100 points).

    Neither will TB or even Brees. Such a shame that the NFL has done what it has done.

    He isn’t wrong. Mahomes was poor last night.

    We're veering considerably off topic, so I'll bow out after this, but I have a tough time buying that at all. Academic requirements can be maneuvered around. College Football is one of the biggest money makers in the nation. It should be treated as a full fledged business. The coaches certainly are compensated accordingly -- they may talk about wanting to educate and mentor young men, but you can't convince me that the only way to do that is by making millions of dollars per year. Good for them, by the way. I'm all about earning your potential on the open market. The students seem to get the short stick, though . . .

    Kelce is a big WR not a TE.

    If I knew how to make GIF's I could make 10 more of those just on Kelce. He can't block if his life depended on it. Straight garbage! Kelce single handedly cost the chefs 4 points because he missed a key block in that game on 3rd down. Should have been a TD. Would have been a TD if Gronk or even Allen was in his position.

    You'd be hard pressed to find 10 GIF's like that in Gronk's entire career.
