    Hey Ray, thanks for making Drew Brees 10 years younger.:) Can you make Tom Brady 10 years older while you're at it?

    Fixed it.

    Regardless, they're both a lot younger than me! :)

    I will be rooting like wild for the Vikings to make the 'bowl. Saints will be very tough. If the Vikings win that one, would prefer to play at Philly, than have a hot Falcons team visit MN with fresh Superbowl experience. Either team, though, would be an easier victory than the Saints, imo.

    On another note, can we please get another AFC team in the superbowl? Even if it's the Steelers . . . I'll take it. Would love to see a Vikings/Jags superbowl, but don't think Bortles can get the Jags that far. Jags would have to defeat the two best teams in the league to get there and that requires a top notch QB.

    Jags have beaten both this year. As a Jags fan, I will believe we can beat both again until we are beaten. :)

    DUUUUVAAAAAAAALLL!

    Good point, Limey. The question becomes "can Bortles do it in the playoffs?" He looked real shaky against Buffalo, so let's hope he got it out of his system.

    As a Saints fan, this result pleases me greatly. ;) :) Tomorrow the Dirty Birds may get a similar present, i.e. seeing the Saints lose, as I'm not confident the Saints can win at the Vikings but hey, there's always a chance :D

    Up 35-7 with under 5 minutes to go, Belichick challenges an obvious catch and then grumbles because the ref makes him actually throw the red flag. :rolleyes:

    Don't look now, but the Jags came to play today! Up 14-0, but it's early.

    21-0! I still think the Steelers will make a game of this, though.

    Jacksonville letting them get behind the D on 4th and 11 is terrible! It cost them their mojo. Going to be an interesting 2nd half without Fournette.

    Fournette came back, but he's got to be hobbled.
