    In seven days the Raiders, Jags, Bears, Bucs, Rams and Seahawks could all hold a share of their division lead with six games left to play.

    Aside from the Panthers, is there an NFC team you'd bet the house CAN'T reach the Super Bowl? It's a thrilling $3500 claiming race.

    The Lions, who have a 25-game road losing streak.
  5. I posted this on the week 10 thread, but Reed out, Suisham in as kicker in Pittsburgh. Lesson learned, you can be a drunken idiot off the field, piss on a cops shoes, look the other way on kickoff coverage when it's you between the returner and the end zone, never reach the end zone with your kicks, but if you start missing field goals and turn on the fans, well, there are other noodle-legged kickers out there.

    Oddly enough, he was one of the top-10 most accurate kickers in NFL history when the season began. I think the Steelers could live with the missed field goals this season, figuring he comes around. But when he was the only person in that locker room to point blame for Sunday's loss elsewhere -- on the fans, and sod on a field he should be fairly familiar with by now -- he had to go.

    Aren't the fans the 12th man? I would think with that comes responsibility.

    I notice you left the Steelers off that list! (They're in second now.)

    I just want to say that as the guy who said the record wouldn't be broken, it would be beyond awesome if Van Brocklin's record got broken THIS week, so it can be discussed on this thread.
