Seattle got very lucky today - had advantage of a few good plays, but never put N.O. away ... and almost got beat at the end. Pure BS coaching on both sides of the ball today. Pete Carroll should go back to coaching high school where he belongs -- what a dummy.

N.O. no better, except defense kept them in the game - what a mess ... final three or four minutes contained so many blunders, we wonder how either team got to the playoffs.

NE / Colts has to be better football, can't get any worse. Am looking to see NE play SF in SB this year. SF should beat Carolina, even tho Panthers played tough this years, QB has no experience and they play a weak division. NE / Denver (maybe) should be the best match-up, maybe even be more fun than SB - Brady's sure got Manning's number over the years.

Hey John, will let you root for the Patriots this year, as your Giants got whopped early. Too bad, would like to see anther Giants / Patriots SB - always exciting when those two meet in the big one.

Sorry Bill....I wouldn't root for the Patsys if I lost an election bet! :lol:

Besides, the OTHER Manning is going to whip them this year.

We're heading out on Wednesday. We'll be at Uchee Creek for a couple of days, then on to Aviation Arbor on the 19th for a week. Are you still heading out west?

Maybe, maybe not - you ever looked at head to head record Brady / Manning (the other Manning :) -- we probably should wait and see who wins before we bet.

Yeah, we're heading west in a few weeks - mid-Feb, toward Death Valley and southwest for awhile until it gets warmer, then who knows. Will let you know when we know ...

Sounds good. We'll be in Mission, TX from the 15th of February through the 15th of March. It's a civilian campground and we've never been there, but the pictures look good (LOL) and the price is right....$250 for the month. :)

You guys deserve one another ... hahaha

But I'll bet what we really want to see is good solid football, no matter who plays it. Keep the ref recalls and the TV crews out of the game and let the players play. TV crew should spend more time showing good plays than trying to televise a ref-mistake repeatedly. Refs never made errors until TV got sharp enough to show the buttons on a uniform. Now every play, it looks for an error instead of a game.

Of all these teams, Seattle is the least likely to win - mainly because Pete Carroll will make enough blunders that his team can't continue to overcome him ...

Was gonna offer you a beer John, but I think I'll just drink it instead.

Don't bother worrying about the beer, John. He only has Boston Lager in the fridge. :lol:

Wrong again Rick - Only Dos Equis or Corona -- And Mexico has no team, so we can enjoy it no matter who plays.

Let's hope we see a couple good games tomorrow - the Championship games are usually better than the SB ...

Unless the Giants are playing the Patsies in the Super Bowl. Then we see a really great game....Brady peeing in his pants, Eli putting passes out there that make average receivers look like superstars, etc, etc. LOL

Yeah - well, I happen to agree with you for once John. Eli is a good QB, in my opinion, better than his brother. But this brother hires a better PR company, name always in our faces, even on dumb commercials.

But John, even you can't believe any QB makes Brady pee pants ... that's really a stretch. But you're right about good games. Of course, when you turn the game on and open your eyes, you'll realize Tom Brady is playing in the game, not Eli manning. Maybe next time !! hehehe :) :)

3rd Qtr and NE looks like a buncha sissies - you all much be laughing !! Johna nd Rick, seems like we're the only ones on football today.

So, never seen Belichick so out-coached, ever. Pretty unusual for him. Denver knew everything NE's doing on offense. Wonder if that has anything to do with Wes Welker bringing all that NE knowledge to Denver with him this year. It's almost like Denver has a guy right in the huddle with NE.

I know, evryone's gonnna say how great Mannning is again - I don't buy it -- Denver defense beat NE today, had nothing to do with Denver offense, although it looked like Denver offense knew all NE defense calls too ... must be nice to have a hot-line right into the play-makers ...

Monkey's gonna climb up in a tree and eat a banana - wait for next year. Will now root for SF all the way.

Three TD's in eleven minutes - NOPE, I don't think so - HA HA HA, I beat you to it. :)

ON EDIT: Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh - Seattle and Denver --- no more worthwhile football this season!!!

Sorry it took so long to reply Bill, we've been trying to find someplace warm to hide for a couple of months! :(

BTW, I meant the Giants defense makes Brady pee his pants. They treat him like a red-headed stepchild and keep his butt bouncing up and down on the ground. He starts hearing footsteps and rushes his throws. Hell, any good defense will do that....that's why they say defense wins championships!

I don't know that Bellicheat was out-coached though. He's another graduate of the New York Giants school of coaching, along with John Fox of Denver. I think what happened was that Peyton is very familiar with the Patriots schemes and knew exactly what to do. He's like having another offensive coach on the field, and knows what he wants to do almost all the time, even with all that yapping and Omaha stuff (Eli has been doing the Omaha thing for years too...think they got it from Archie? :lol: )

Anyway, we're at Aviation Arbor in New Orleans until Sunday, then we're heading to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. It's been a pretty decent week (other than repairs to my truck....but that's another story) but the weather turned to crap today. There were even some snow flurries! We'll be in San Antonio Monday and staying a week.... hopefully the weather will get better.

See ya soon!

Yeah - we're taking off in two weeks or so ...

One final comment -- I bet it didn't hurt Denver any to have Welker standing there explaining every signal and every play out of the Pats offense either ... What mistake, letting him go ... altho the Pats defended him pretty well too ...

Hay, there's always next year ! For both teams - everyone starts "0" and "0"

Anyone else notice when Manning wins, he a great QB, but when he loses, the team didn't protect him.
And the hype about him setting a new SB record for completed passes ... when he lost! Actually Denver lost it.

Think about it -- 34 completions and 8 points ... so what? A new record. If you can't score, you might as well throw no passes. But if you're that far behind all game, you'll be throwing a lot of passes to catch up. SOME of them will be caught if you throw enough. And, the Seahawks were giving up the short pass to run the clock ... that record should be mute.

And why no comments about a second year QB who just played a great game and won. No one talks about Russell Wilson - so, I will. Russel Wilson lead the Seahawks to a fine win, despite the coach ... :) :) :) had to get that in.

Denver earned that loss from the first play off scrimmage. All down hill after that.

Monkey44 take a look at the NFL website and you will find Russel Wilson given the credit he deserves and yesterday Yahoo homepage had his pic and a nice write up about his success. The Seahawks surprised the masses this year and their defense was just about the best I have seen of any NFL team this season and I am extremely they won. I have always admired Peyton Manning and think he is a great quarterback and this loss does not make me feel any differently, they set the tone for the game with that first play and one mistake after another lost them the game.

Peyton Manning is a great quarterback and will someday be in the Hall of Fame.

Having said that, if there was one game left for all the marbles I would take his brother Eli over him every time. Peyton over his whole career has set or equaled almost every individual quarterback record there is. The problem is that his teams disappear, for whatever reason, in the big games. This past Sunday was eerily similar to the 1998 Orange Bowl, where Tennessee was favored to win over Nebraska and claim the National title. Nebraska rolled out over 500 yards of offense, held Peyton to 134 yards passing, and won the game 42 - 17. Eli still holds the Manning family record for Super Bowl wins, despite having one less attempt. :laugh:

Anyway Bill, we're running out of room to find some warm weather down here in Texas. We rolled into Corpus Christi yesterday to rain and a high of 46. It's raining again this morning, but the temp is supposed to reach 70 FOR THE ONLY FRIGGING TIME THIS WEEK!!! :angry:

Hopefully, we'll catch some sun and warmer weather next week in Mission. LOL

Russell Wilson, if he stays healthy, will be a great QB on the order of John Elway and the like, and so will Colin Kapernick of the 49ers. It's been great weather down here in La Peñita Nayarit Mexico, high in the mid 80s and lows in the high 60s. Makes you want to put an extra sheet on the bed. Most of the old time Mexico hands say that if you want consistently warm weather you have to get south of Mazatlan, and we are about 200 miles south.
