    No, the Cutler throw last night was the worst pass you've ever seen.

    It looked like either a) Goings quit on the route or b) Goings and Delhomme weren't exactly clear on what route Goings was supposed to run.

    You may be right. But at least Cutler was only in his first start. That was a terrible looking throw to a wide-open defender.

    That last pick wasn't so hot either.

    Too bad for the Panthers their backup is the 75-year-old Heisman winner.

    Green can get Tony G the ball, but it's up to tacklers to bring him down. All season, whether it's Cleveland or San Diego, Gonzalez has taken defenders for a ride. To say nothing of Gonzalez's run-blocking skills.

    Don't forget, Gonzalez had Elvis throwing him balls early in his career and then a Trent Green who had the knack for finding opponents as much as his teammates before finding his groove in 2003.

    Not trying to rip the other tight ends. Heap, Gates and Crumpler are obvioulsy great, but when it comes to the best, comparing Shockey or The Soldier to Gonzalez is stupid. Just too bad Tony G will never win a playoff game. :(

    So at the moment, the only teams in the NFC with better than .500 records are the four division leaders.
    Then there are the four 6-6 teams--two of whom will make the playoffs, unless one of the three 5-7 teams finishes strong and steals a playoff spot at 8-8.
    Isn't parody, er, parity wonderful.

    Now now don't forget the possibility of a 4-8 team running the table and squeaking in! The Skins always finish hot.

    Any league in which the pissass Giants are the no. 5 seed after 12 games should not be taken seriously.

    Says the guy who screams about Greg Schiano because he won't come coach his team...and the guy who screams the BBWAA is tapping his lines just so they can not vote for his favorite players.

    Seriously, dude, are you parodying yourself here? Because that's the only excuse.

    Trivial note from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that tells you just how ugly things are for the Tampa Bay Bucs right now. When Matt Bryant made a 27-yard field goal as time expired in Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Steelers, it was the first time since 1933 that an NFL team made a field goal as time expired to avoid a shutout.

    And the one in 1933 forced a 3-3 tie for the Pittsburgh Pirates (seven years before they became the Steelers) against the Brooklyn Dodgers (I guess everybody was stealing names from baseball back then).

    That means it goes back even farther to find a team kicking a meaningless field goal on the final play just to avoid the shutout, if it had ever happened before. And the Steelers didn't even look good in kicking the Bucs' butts. Bruce Gradkowski looked completely overmatched.

    I'm up for a Tony Romo discussion.

    Bring it.
