    Absolutely. I was ready at 3.45 with the bank card just in case they were going straight on sale.

    New Spurs ground too, looking forward to seeing that.

    Yeah, good idea rather than wait another 2 seasons after this for City to play them in a league game.

    It's an unprecedented run of success. Great coaching & free agency brilliance has overcome exactly what the draft is supposed to prevent.

    He has also picked up players dismissed and discarded elsewhere.

    I do think this may well be a season too far for them though. They just haven't looked as dominant this year and have scraped though some games.

    You do have to wonder how much longer Brady can go on for too. It was a real surprise when they let Garoppolo go. Thought he was going to be the next in line to take over.

    Could be Belichick downfall letting Jimmy G go. He looks every much the star he showed glimpses of last season.

    I think the 49's might well challenge next season. They did keep losing this campaign, but we're had to beat and had a few close games.

    beat the Packers twice last season with Rodgers.
    Maybe it would have been closer but still think Vikings would have won.

    Dumb decision to let Garoppolo go. Not Belichick's. Makes no sense apart from Brady having to much influence. Sacrificing future to keep Brady happy now.
    Brady seriously seems to believe he can play another 4/5 seasons(he's 40 now). Pats now have to take a low-ranked QB in draft and have 3 or 4 seasons to get him ready. An injury to Brady and they're screwed anyway. already sacked 35 times this season
    Belichick's input was to make sure he went to an NFC side and at least get him out of the same conference.

    Think with abit of help on the outside with a new WR (Landry as a Free agent from dolphins?) and plugging a couple of gaps in the oline and dline then can see them challenging next year. The NFC West has all of a sudden got interesting with the rise of the Rams the potential rise of the 9ers combined with the decline of the Seahawks and Cardinals. Still won’t be the best division in football as that belongs to the NFC south.

    Bloody hell the Eagles are riding their luck a bit tonight.

    Getting a lot of the rub of the green.

    Was tipping the Falcons to win and am rooting for them tonight, but just wonder if the Gods are not smiling down on them this evening.

    Shit ass dumb play calling from Sark cost us. We didn’t deserve it though, and at least we won’t get a mauling from the enemy in the conference game now cause I can see the Saints beating the Vikes the way they are playing at the moment.
    Falcons need a change at OC again, like what Marquand and DQ have done to the defence but we have ignored offence for too long now. Need help on the Oline and I would trade Freeman.

    I thought they seemed certain to win. They marched the ball with ease down the field, taking time off the clock as they did so and seemed odds on to score. As soon as they got inside the 10 yards line though the play
    calling was all wrong and what the hell was that shovel, come dink pass?

    View attachment 8806 You just can't argue with this.

    Red zone offence has killed us all season. We get down there and then try to play all these inventive college ball plays that seasoned pros just sniff out. Even after fooking up the 3 plays previous all we had to do on the line was bounce it to the outside with Tevin Coleman. You could even line up with the same look as to fake the throw, just put a better blocker on the outside.

    Looks like my shout of the Jags being dark horses is coming to fruition. I could even see this D giving Brady and co a nightmare, they are young pumped and talented they don’t give a crap who you are they are going to play lights out.

    Jaguars (do you pronounce it the English or American way?) are playing very well against the Steelers. 14-0 after the first quarter.

    I think if the Jags win this one today they will beat the Pats and could win the whole thing.

    Jags need to balance the aggression they won’t give up so many big plays then. Having said that both passes by Big Ben for the touchdowns were immense that’s is why he is still elite in my eyes.

    Jason Bell, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!

    Watched the Pittsburgh game, but hadn't watched the NFL show on the Beeb, so in-between the Pittsburgh and Minnesota games I decided to catch up on the show.

    Jason Bell said Jacksonville can't score and there is no way they will win and if Pittsburgh score 21 points it will all be over. He also totally derided Osi for choosing the Jags.

    Can't wait for the next show. Osi says if the Jags win he will be doing somersaults around the studio! ;)

    Wow.
    After last week who would have thought Jags could score 20 pts let alone 45. That's an incredible performance to go to Pittsburgh and win particularly with a dodgy QB. This Jaguar performance again and who knows what they can do against Patriots.
    Vikings. Thought we were done. Incredible game. Keenum just made himself a fortune!! Play off football - allowed just 14 passing TDs all season then 3 in one game. Thought we were cruising, controlling their running game then Brees wakes up.
    No fears about going to Eagles.

    Wow! Just wow!!!

    The best sport by a country mile!! Fantastic stuff.

    Marcus Williams though? Is he in anyway related to Lee Burge? What a horrendous non tackle.

    The guy's going to have to hide under a rock for several months, if not years.

    I didn't notice the corner ducking under Diggs and taking out his own man, what kind of clown college defending is that? Couldn't believe that was the last man, when he collected the ball I momentarily wondered why he wasn't just running the ball out to stop the clock and then oh right, he's completely free.

    Falcons and Steelers let down my bet, but I had a tenner on Michael Thomas to score anytime at 11/8 which made up for it. Squids in still daddy-o

    keep replaying it in my mind,even if he catches it and diggs forces him out of bounds its still a nervy FG attempt for vikings.

    will be itneresting to see how phillys TWO running backs get on vs vikings, they were very good vs the run last night
