No more pressure this season for me as the San Diego Chargers have been put into oblivion.In overtime,Denver Broncos beat the Chargers 13-16.I can't help to question Norv's strategy.A three man rush on Tebow.That's a win-win for Denver.And in the last drive,to conservative in placing faith on the running game.Screens,flank or short passing should have been used.I know at one season our team was 6 games back in a season and over came to get into the playoffs.And although we're in a very weak division and OAK,DEN and KC still haven't seen strong opponents as we have already,we're too banged up to recover.I'm almost hoping that we loose all remaining games so the Spanos can end the Turner-Smith era and get some good draft picks.

It's not that I'm not grateful to Turner-Smith for some exciting seasons and their overall winning record,but we should have been in the SB at least one time.But you also need to recognize when you've been snake bitten.I believe,IMHO,the Chargers and Turner//Smith both need fresh starts.

Well. that's my take on my team.

How did yours do in week 12?

I told you it was coming. No surprise here.

Championships start with ownerships, and Spanos obviously doesn't want to win.

Maybe the Spanos are making a business decision.Selling the team? Maybe, making it easier for the team to move to LA knowing the "Battle Of SoCal" is at stake to keep OAK in OAK?Or both?

I greatly hate to say this,but to grow the Chargers and put a winning team on the field,the Spanos hand might be forced to sell the team and it will move to LA.

Texans are 8-3; their best start ever; in the driver's seat in the AFC South; defense is awesome...

...somehow I feel uneasy: oh yeah, they're reduced to playing their third-string QB after Leinart went down today.

The Packers wiped out the Lions and they're now 11-0! Its gonna be a tough game next week at the Giants, but if get through that unscaved I really can't see them losing their remaining games unless the starters begin sitting. Also, the Lions have got to be one the most undisciplined teams I've seen in a long time, especially #90 Ndamukong Suh.

'Touchdown Jesus' Tebow is just finding a way for Denver to win, but I would also credit just enough running game and Defense. He is 'on a mission from God'. Maybe there is something about this Jesus belief stuff.

Jets got by again, Sanchez got 4 TD's but he still making too many mistakes. Buffalo just collasped a few weeks ago and just can't do it anymore.

Green Bay, is on a historic roll. They wiped up a Detroit team that has some serious problems with their players' behaviors. Suh is an idiot, I hope he gets canned for at least 3 games.

Indy is also on a historic roll...downhill to the Luck sweepstake. They are butt ugly awful.

NY Giants are sucking bad again, Saints are up 21-3 at the Half.

If the Pack goes undefeated to become the first ever 19-0 team, I won't be unhappy. I respect the Packers a great deal, and as a Steelers fan, I tipped my hat towards them after winning the Super Bowl. It is looking more as if they'll not only have an undefeated season, but will also repeat. Rodgers seems to look more and more solid as the season goes on.

As for the Eagles and Steelers... Well, let's start with the Birds. PSA57, are you calling for Turner to be fired? He's in good company with Reid. I think Eagles Country wants him gone more than ever after that miserable loss yesterday! Let me get this straight. You post a 10-0 lead, including a 70-yard TD connection on the FIRST PLAY of the game?!! Then you derail and lead your team to a 38-20 LOSS?!! Eagles fans, I feel for ya! Reid you suck!

Now as for my Steelers, I think you might as well stick a fork in them, too. Sure, they're 8-3 now, but they're darned lucky to be there. Last night's so-called marquis matchup was more of a game to determine who could stink less. Luckily the Steelers stunk less. 13-9 against a subpar team in this part of the season kinda raises questions regarding a potential deep post-season run at a Super Bowl, especially with the Ravens having the inside track at the AFC North as well as home field. The Steelers defense is not as potent as it once was. The pro-bowlers are way passed their prime. Come the draft, they need to use all of their picks to overhaul the once-iron-tight defense. Get rid of the players who are at the end of their contract and draft all new people. They have enough WRs and half backs. They have some younger line men as well who just need to get smarter and protect Ben better...

Here's my SB pick: Ravens over the Pack. I said above that it wouldn't surprise me to see the Pack go undefeated to bring home a second consecutive Lombardi, but their defense (at least their pass defense) is statistically much worse than Baltimore's. I do think they lead the league in interceptions tho. I think the score will be something like 17-14...

You if you go back to last season they've now won 17 games in a row, and I was starting to wonder if most casual fans were starting to get sick of seeing them win all the time. Sometimes I feel that's what's happened to the Patriots, because everyone was pulling for them in that Super Bowl against the Rams but now just about everyone wants to see Belichick and Brady lose.

Here's an idea, maybe the Eagles and Chargers could just swap head coaches and see what happens!! Just a thought!

My Steelers pulled out a squeeker against KC, I don't see us getting ahead of Baltimore for the division but we should make the playoffs.

Houston needs a quarterback in a bad way, I would like to see them take the division but it is looking iffy at this point.

Green Bay definately looks like they will go all the way, but this is why they play the games.

Probably the most overrated coach in the NFL. Stinks at the strategy / clock management side of the job.

Quoting steeler83 (Reply 12):
Reid you suck!

IMHO has some pretty creative plays, but sucks at coaching his players on the basics of the game.

Yesterday there was a litany of missed tackles, players out of position, etc.

You'll never win that way, even with "dream team" talent.

On the other side of the ball, I think Belichick deserves a lot of credit for dropping lots of high-round draft picks and expensive veterans who just aren't doing what they are told to do. He realized it's futile to try to win with players that have good numbers on the charts but who can't/won't play positional football. Of course one can say it was him who signed those players, and I agree up to a point, but drafting and signing veterans is always a crap shoot. I must say he did a lot better when Scott Pioli (sp?) was on his staff.

It was amazing to see the Giants pass rush a few weeks ago against the Pats and compare it to what we saw yesterday against the Eagles. Have the Giants just given up? I was listening on the game on WFAN (I was on WN and was lucky to get one of their planes with WiFi!) and the home team announcers were convinced that was so. One thing fans won't tolerate is a team that gives up, which seems to happen from time to time with teams coached by Coughlin.

In all fairness some fans (specially SD fans) weren't ok with his hiring from the get go. Anyway, Denver won.
For all of TT's shortcomings at the QB position I'll say two things about him:

1.- He is clutch
2.- He is fun to watch.

Neither can be said of Orton.

You can teach how to throw, but not how to win. Ask Romo.

Still, I think Jay Cutler is a franchise QB and still miss him. What an arm. Loved when he bragged about his arm being stronger than Elway's in his press conferences while at Denver

Yeah, that's because Brady and Belichick are ponpous obnoxious jerks. I don't know who is coaching the Packers, but he and Aaron Rodgers are not pompous. They don't have that smug expression on their faces like Belichick and Brady have. I dunno, maybe it's just me...

Me either. We'll be tied with them at the end of the season. They'll be the division leaders, and we'll get in either as a 5th or 6th seed and probably take an early exit out of the playoffs. It's time to send our defensive unit to the retirement home where they belong, and then sign on some younger players who will destroy opposing offenses left and right the way they did in the 2008 season. That was their best defense since 1978 I think...

What bothered me about Tebow the other day is he looked too scared to do anything but hang on to the ball and run himself. It worked on Sunday, but that's not a great quality for a "clutch" quarterback.

Ben's admitted to falling in love with the "Big Ben" personna.

"Big Ben just kept building up. It ended up coming off the field. It kept taking over. Superman kept taking over Clark Kent and you just never saw who Ben Roethlisberger was any more," Roethlisberger told KDKA-TV. "At the time, I didn't see it. I was gaining everything but I was losing a lot of who I was raised to be. It got so overwhelming, it consumed me."

Like many young men in his position, he took liberties with his fame and fortune, and to me his actions make him an A-number-1 pompous obnoxious jerk.

However, we're all human and make mistakes, and he seems to have learned from his mistakes after the terrible publicity and after sitting on the bench for four games, so as you say...

Hey, you're entitled to feel Brady and Belichick are pompous obnoxious jerks. I get it. I felt the same way about the Steelers, the Raiders and the Cowboys of the 70s, the Bears and 49ers of the 80s, the Cowboys of the 90s, the Rams of the early 00s, and Colts ever since Manning showed up. But of course they are all damn good teams with something to be pompous and obnoxious about.
