    CBS, why do you hate me? When nothing’s going on the stream is fine. As soon as the play starts, nothing but static and green.

  2. V says:

    Goddamnit, the Dolphins and Falcons are making the 1 pm games boring as all hell.

  3. Kiersten says:

    ^%%^#^%(&*%#!!#)*()&%^$$ I HATE THE PATRIOTS

    schaub. killing fantasy playoff hopes and dreams eveywhere.

  5. Dolphins v. Pats?
    Falcons v. Eagles?
    LOTR Marathon on TNT?
    Scrubs re-runs on Comedy Central?
    MW2 on PS3? Hmm.

  6. Salty Buggah says:

    The Broncos are dominating the Chiefs but thanks to 2 Orton turnovers (a pick in the endzone, fumble at midfield…both led to a FG, the Chiefs are still in it.

  7. ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

    What a play in the Saints game. I hope it stands.

  8. Drew says:

    My Dad is up in Ruth’s Chris in Weehawken and Mo just walked in.

  9. Salty Buggah says:

    Excuse my ignorance but what does “playing possum” mean?

  10. Ivan says:

    Michael Vick Baby!!!!!!!!!!!


    Whoopsie. I thought the NFL was the ideal model in all sports?

  12. Salty Buggah says:

    Lol at Cbs. A graphic for the KC offense said, “7 yards on offense, 4 three and outs, an interception, and a partridge in a pear tree”

  13. Wow, I did not think that fourth down play would work.

  14. Salty Buggah says:

    Matt Cassel had a 3.2 passer rating halfway thru the 3rd quarter

  15. Salty Buggah says:

    Matt Cassel is absolutely terrible. He’s missing open guys

  16. Oh come on, New Orleans. You cannot lose to the ‘Skins.

  17. Salty Buggah says:

    Thank god the Broncos are winning in a blowout because Orton just fumbled on his own 2. I actually called a safety right before the play but I guess a fumble is as bad

  18. Kiersten, you should be on this with some reporting.;c_id=mlb

    Frankie Dreamy Eyes* plays for Lara.

    *for Rebecca

  19. Drew says:

    Damn I thought we got that kickoff back.

  20. Maybe I just caught him on a bad day, but it seems like Henne can’t throw to his left or his right–the sidelines, mostly–with any sort of accuracy.

  21. Why did Brady throw that? Dumb.

  22. Drew says:

    Ugh I hate fucking Suisham. Are you kidding me? He always fucks up.

  23. Kiersten says:


  24. Salty Buggah says:

    Wow, Miami beat NE. I really thought they wouldn’t after the way NE came out on fire.

  25. ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops says:

    Pats and Steelers lose, Saints come very close to losing and still could. Wild Sunday so far.

  26. Salty Buggah says:

    Let’s go Cleveland!

  27. Drew says:

    Suisham better ride around in the pope-mobile tonight.

  28. Reggie C. says:

    Great concentration by Witten. Not a good sign for the Gmen.

  29. Reggie C. says:

    Why can’t Eli throw a good deep ball anymore?

  30. pat says:


    Why did Andre Brown have to get injured? GRRRRR

  31. pat says:

    Oh wow, a broken CC Brown tackle. How novel.

  32. Reggie C. says:

    Call reversal would frigging suck.

  33. Michael Kay says:

    how much is jerry jones paying Joe Buck to keep referring to the wildcat as “the razorback”? Next week it will be “And The Vikings score a Cowboys!” and “The kick is up, thru the uprights and the Texas Stadium attempt is good! That’s 3 JERRY’S on the board for the Vikes.”

  34. Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

    That Saints game should be investigated to see if the ‘Skins blew it. One of the worst, most inexcusable collapses I’ve ever seen.

    I’ve already stopped watching the Giants. They’ll be blown out. They have no running game and no defense, and they only have a passing game sometimes.

  35. pat says:

    I fuckin LURRRVE Hakeem Nicks.

  36. Reggie C. says:


  37. Reggie C. says:

    ELI’s got to get points. Gmen have the ball at the Cowboy 38.

  38. pat says:

    Just pound the motherfucker in there plz.

  39. king of fruitless hypotheticals says:

    oh come on, its december. dallas loses.

  40. Reggie C. says:

    I dont know how i feel over Osi’s NFL leading 4 fumble recoveries. I mean … Osi didnt actually cause the fumble. He’s got a right to be happy , but he should be happier for Kiwa.

    • pat says:

      Word. It’s like Runs Scored. You happen to be in the right place at the right time and usually your teammates do all the work.

  41. pat says:

    Flozell Adams you are a piece of GARBAGE.

  42. Reggie C. says:


  43. Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

    WTF Eli?

  44. Michael Kay says:

    I’m puttin that one on Gilbride, it was the Plax play that he has insisted on continuing to use even though our super tall, fast and athletic WR is no longer there to jump for them.

    • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

      I never like Gilride. Even in the SB year the offense was nothing special.

      I want Weis.

    • Reggie C. says:

      Makes me think whatever happened to Ramses Barden. This kid has got to be ready at some point to play some endzone schemes. Right??

      • Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

        I know, there was all this talk about him preseason then nothing.

      • Michael Kay says:

        I’ve been asking myself the same thing repeatedly, and his absence is made more confusing by the fact that Moss and Hagan aren’t really getting on the field. Coughlin seems hesitant to use rookie WR’s, evidenced by the fact that Nicks has been so awesome and still isn’t involved as much as he should be.

        • Jersey says:

          I dunno, Nicks has been pretty involved, it seems to me. He’s got two quality guys ahead of him in Smith and Manningham, but he’s still contributing as the 3rd receiver quite a bit.

      • Jersey says:

        He’s been hurt, I thought…?

  45. Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

    You know what? I’d rather win 14-10 then 33-30.

    I know we could score if we have to, it’s stopping scoring that’s our issue.

  46. Hey ZZ says:

    Off topic, but does anyone know of anywhere in Manhattan to get an affordable Christmas tree.

    Someone told me 49th and 9th, but wanted to see if anyone else had a good spot.

  47. Rocky Road Redemption (formerly RAB poster) says:

    No surprises there.

    Giants just aren’t a very good team.

    If they pull this out (which I really doubt) it’s only because Dallas sucks worse.

  48. Michael Kay says:

    gosh it must be awesome to have red zone plays that the defense isn’t expecting…..

  49. Reggie C. says:

    That’s why we’re the GMEN and their the cowboys!

  50. pat says:

    HOLY SHIT!!!!!!

  51. dkidd says:

    that’s a touchdown. nothing conclusive in the replay

  52. Michael Kay says:

    OK Gilbride, you finally scored on a pass to Jacobs. That was AWESOME! Now never do it again please.

  53. Michael Kay says:

    ok guys, when they need, lets say 14 yards for a first down, you don’t have to let them get it all at once….just puttin that out there.

  54. Michael Kay says:

    here’s a good test, 3rd & 14, try to NOT let them get 14 yards.

  55. Michael Kay says:

    see here’s the thing, the defense clearly needs to practice against like a college team’s offense, working against gilbride’s offense on a 3rd and long will teach you nothing. Gilbride would NEVER go for 14 yards on a 3rd & 14, he’d have tried to turn a 5 yard screen into 14 yards.

  56. Reggie C. says:

    How did Bradshaw escape that pile?


  57. Reggie C. says:

    Where’s my grounding call?

  58. Reggie C. says:



  59. pat says:


  60. JobaWockeeZ says:

    What is it with Buck and his need for some baseball references? I miss it too but damn.

  61. Reggie C. says:

    Corey Webster … wtf!
