The Packers have definitely snagged some good QBs over time.

Seriously...  Teams are supposed to wallow around in their own filth for a decade after having a hall of fame QB, but the packers just pluck another one off the end of the first round.  It's not even fair

What the hell is going on in SF? 5-1.

I have very fond memories of the niners during the 80s and 90s, but for the last decade+ they've been irrelevant. Is Harbaugh a genius or are they just fortunate? Personally, I think it's a little bit of both. Regardless, I find myself a little rusty when it comes to getting excited for the niners...but it feels good!

Dude, it's ALL Harbaugh. Look at what he did with Stanford, made one of the worst collegiate teams into a powerhouse. Doing the same thing with SF. And as a Niners t-shirt fan, I'm excited too. I need something to cheer for since Dallas and Houston always disappoint.

Heh, "t-shirt fan" is a term we use down here for people who cheer for college teams from schools they didn't attend. Mostly used as an insult for high school dropouts who cheer for winning teams (i.e. Michigan, Alabama, etc.) and pretend like they went to that school when all they really did was buy a t-shirt. We also apply the term to pro teams we like from different regions we have no connections to, although it isn't meant to be insulting.

No talk about Tebow?  Granted, luck was on their side, but give that kid some time, and call plays that play to his strengths, and I think the Broncos will do quite well with him as QB.

I only caught a few highlights, but pretty spectacular range between his misses and mistakes vs. the last 2 drives.  He'll be fun to watch if nothing else.

But Luck won't be on their side...

I saw the game (I do live in Broncos Country afterall) and whoever was calling the plays needs a swift kick in the ass.  They kept trying to do the same thing over and over.  Tebow doesn't have the arm of an Eli Manning or a Tom Brady...stop trying to have him throw it all the way down the field.  Establish a good run game (easy enough with Moreno and Tebow) then set up play action and screens.

Shore up the defense a bit, and the Broncos could win the division.

I watched the Packers/Chargers tilt and the Steelers/Ravens.  Two of the best games I have seen in a while and pretty happy with both outcomes.   ;D

I think you can put a fork in the Bears...  Reports are that Cutler broke the thumb on his throwing hand in yesterday's game.  I don't like their chances with Haine at the helm instead of Cutler.
