    A Cowboyless playoff, it appears.

    Jon Kitna will lead the Cowboys to 10 consecutive victories, the NFC East title at 11-5, be named comeback player of the century ... then Romo will return for the playoffs and the Cowboys will go out in their first game.

    Troy Aikman can go eff. Dude's impossible to listen to when he does Redskins games. What a donk. Someone send in LaVar again to finish him, please.

    There is a 10% chance this actually happens.

    He should be banned from ever doing a game involving a NFC East team.

    Simms is ten times the man Aikman is.

    The Pittsburgh/NO game should be very good, and if the Steelers can pull it off, then five of their remaining nine are cupcake city (@Cincy, @Balt, @Buf, @Cle are the remaining road games).

    NO needs the game badly, and how the Steeler defense looks without Aaron Smith will be very important.

    One thing to watch for is no one has even tried to throw the ball deep on Pittsburgh this year. And nothing is even coming into the half of the field Polamalu is covering. He is just that good.

    As a Redskins fan, when the Bears got the ball back Sunday with about four minutes left, I didn't even sweat. You just knew Cutler was going to find a way to fuck that up. Predictably, he did.
  10. @ Baltimore is cupcake city? Unless you are talking about Ace of Cakes, then I guess you are right. That all being said, The Steelers came to within 40 seconds of beating the Ravens with Charlie fricken Batch at QB, so I expect them to win, but I certainly wouldn't classify it as a cupcake game.

    edit: n'mind, just reread it. I thought you were lumping Baltimore in with the cupcakes, which it appears you are not.

    I was confused about that before re-reading it, too, so it wasn't just you.

    That game should be interesting. Roethlisberger should be able to take great advantage of the Ravens' shaky secondary, but I can see the Ravens being one of the teams to exploit the absense of Aaron Smith very well.

    No @Balt is not a cupcake and neither is @Cincy, but it shows that the road schedule is not tough at all. All they need to do is hold serve at home.
