All of the upper midwest is probably in shock one way or the other now. Wow. When I saw Rogers throwing long, out of the TV frame, I knew he must have seen something. Chicago really blew it down the stretch, throwing 50+ yards into the end zone consistently when they had plenty of time to get within range of running planned plays instead of Hail Marys. Stupid.

And let's not forget how the Jets knocked off Miami, giving San Diego a chance to beat KC in OT to clinch a spot in the AFC.

That wasn't Rodgers best game but the guy can play. Our D is so bad that it's hard to imagine the Pack making any noise but Rodgers can keep us in games. We need to use Lacy to set up play action where Rodgers rolls out and throws deep. We didn't use that look this week but we will next week.

Lacy and Starks add a dimension to that offense that we haven't had in a few years

But our D still sucks

A prayer:

Dear G*d,

Please let your New Orleans Saints feast on the soulless Dallas Cowboys at their Temple of Iniquity by first letting that prideful team win against the Eagles. Please intercede on behalf of your Saints so that C2, your faithful servant, can witness your will being done in that horrible place, as it happened in NO a few weeks ago when Your Boys made those reprobates whimper and cry like little girls.

And, please, one last request: let that good Louisiana boy and Saints fan, Phil Robertson, sit next to me so he can protect me from those Dallas perverts.

Amen.

Sorry, looks like it's philly in the dead of winter. Orton threw a Romo pass.

Well, the Bengals did cover and Dallas v Philly was under 54, so Scott pulls it out on the last day of the contest. As I said prior, anything can happen with essentially three flips of a coin (vs, say, 16), and Scott took advantage.

Unofficially, factoring in all the contests here, regular season and playoff, his confidence pools over the years, my March Madness tournaments, all those Pinewood Derbies since he was a cub scout, rocks/papers/scissors, and so forth, this is Scott's first ever win. Congrats!

Yep, well, I'll take the lesser pleasure. Watching Dallas lose again (and ignominiously) never gets old. Saints would have made mincemeat of Dallas, but I'm confident they can deal with the Eagles, who didn't look too intimidating. A top notch team would have blown out Dallas. Eagles had their hands full.

The NFC East is a bit of a joke.

Did you notice the Dallas 'win or go home' stat? Amazing. Huge amount of turn overs and points scored against them in clutch games.
