It is a fact the NFL changed the rules of the game over the last 10 to 15 years years to increase passing. Allowing offensive lineman to hold, denying DB's any contact on receivers after 3.5 yards from scrimmage and all of the rules to protect Qb's and defenseless recievers . Now we have Qb's breaking records right and left and the media wants us to to believe it is all that these QB's are better than the ones that played before. Wrong. There are great players on defense in the NFL as well.
Well now there is justice. The teams that have bought into the NFL's attempt to make the NFL a "QB driven league" and are hyper dependent on throwing the ball are getting beat in the playoffs. Balanced teams that run the ball as many times as they pass and commit to running the ball are doing well. Atlanta that gave away most of their draft picks for ONE WR are at home. They thought they were one WR away from the promise land. NO.
NOW we already have media bitches today saying a Ravens vs. 49ers SB would be boring. Well Tom Terrific and the Pats are 0-2 against teams over .500 recors this year.
Ravens can beat them because they have a running game and a good defense. Which New England defense will show next weekend? The one that played a weak Tebow offense or the one that got slammed all season this year? I say the bad one.
The NFL isnt attempting to make the league QB driven, its already been done.

Yeah, I mean consider that Drew Brees took the number 1 defense in the league for 32 points. Usually thats more then enough to win.

Well look at it this way. With Greg Williams gone, maybe they can get a decent defense and dominate the league with multiple super bowl wins the next few years.

Neither one, the skins could do what Cincy did. Could they not? Weren't you one who said Harbaugh was a college coach?

It is. You gotta have some D to win a championship and it was obvious that NO & GB really had problems on D.

..and all of the QB stars except Tom Brady are at home wondering why the their Superman cape the NFL gave them did not work this last weekend. Brady has an uphill battle to make it to the big game. Guess the NFL will have to change more rules so their designated money makers can make it next year. Ten guys on defense or only four men can rush the passer.

Right now I'm predicting a New England/San Francisco Super Bowl. Which Tom Brady will loose because he will be unable to summon the courage to beat his childhood team

Also keep in mind that right next to the Superman capes of Brees and Rodgers sits a Super Bowl ring.

I dont really know what you are talking about. Manning, Smith & Brady are all QB stars. Flacco isnt quite in their league. All the remaining teams also play good D.

The league had to open things up because fans just werent interested in watching 9-6 games. The NFL is more exciting now than it has ever been and they will never change the rules to go back to the boring old days.

May I point also just as mike Goalic(sp) did this morning that the 2 really bad calls in the Packer game kept the drive from ending so they would not have scored had those BS calls not been made to extend the drives.

While I agree that generally more offense means more excitement and more viewers it's not always the case. In the case of the NFL opening up the game has worked. In the NBA it has all but failed, as one of the most frequent complaints about the NBA is that no one plays defense.

I'm just one person but actually I prefer low-scoring battles.

I always thought Carlos was a better CB than D-hall so not sure why you even bring D-hall up. I'm not bitter about Carlos, but I'm glad his sorry ass attitude is gone.

No, no he didn't. Let me share with you some info that another insider brought to the table over the past couple of years in regards to Carlos Rogers. Remember Willie Parker's comment about some of the guys were more concerned with clubbing than they were football? The number one guy at the top of the 3 ring circus was Carlos Rogers himself. Club going all throughout the week, get home at 4am with having to be at practice the following morning. This was not limited to the weekdays either because it was also a issue of him going out on Saturday nights doing the same thing knowing he had a game the next day.

Not only that, he really only had 1 good year since being drafted with the 9th pick back in 2005. He's almost had more INTs in this one year(6), than he's basically had in his six years as a Redskins. (8)

What does that tell you about Carlos Rogers? What does that tell you about the effort he's given to the Redskins? Why didn't he put that type of effort while playing here if he wanted to get paid? Also, why is it the only type of contract he was offered from any other team was a measly ONE year deal worth 4 mil. He talked during the off-season how he was one of the top FA CBs on the market, and yet he couldn't even fetch no more than that? LOL Carlos is playing his ass off because he is broke and wants to get paid. He's had financial problems since he's been in the league and is in need of the big payday.

Don't give me this bullshit that the front office screwed Carlos over. NO, Carlos screwed himself. Even after all the bullshit I've covered on this jackass, the Skins still offered him a multi-year contract, but it wasn't the baller money that Carlos was requesting. You see, he's looking Cromartie type of money, or D-hall type since that's the guy he targeted during the off-season with his rant about being paid.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

Not wanting a probowl CB on your team is a strange argument. Mentioning Cromartie and Hall doesnt help it, both are well over paid for their performance.

I said I didn't want his sorry ass attitude. I didn't say Cromartie and D-Hall were the gold standards of CB play. I was relating Carlos salary demands in comparison with the others. Also, he had 6 years to play for that second contract and he did basically nothing. Only eight INTs over the course of six years, when he grabs six in only one year on a one year contract. Tells me he wasn't giving it his all here, and was coasting like every other player we paid big money. Also, Carlos got paid top dollar back in 2005 and never earned it either.


He's going to be just like Haynesworth in the fact that once he gets his top dollar contract, he's going back to coasting like he's done his whole career.

There's not much the NBA does right. Its definitely the worst of the major sports. I think the NFL has it about right at this point. If if gets to where NFL games are 80-75 then I will complain but I dont have any problem with 45-42 games.
