Cardinals 16 @ Panthers 27

The NFC South. Tsk Tsk. It would be HI-larious if the Panthers won though.

Really thought about going with the Panthers, but the Cardinals are still a good team, despite being on their third quarterback. I think Arizona's defense controls this game and their offense does just fine. Also, Ted Ginn, Jr. is a difference maker.

Ravens 30 @ Steelers 17

I haven't kept track of the Ravens except I think they've very recently lost like 6 in a row. James Franco or Joe Flacco?

Jon
No Bell? Here's the thing. He wasn't that big a factor in the last game between these two teams. I think the Steelers won that by the score of 108-9. Also, have you seen Joe Flacco's stats lately? I've seen a number or two and they weren't good.

Bengals 10 @ Colts 26

The Bungles will show up for the playoffs. Or the Colts are a bad team. Hmmm.

The team that wins this will still not be that good of a team.

Lions 20 @ Cowboys 24

Suh should've been suspended. Absolute bullshit that he just had to pay a fine. Oh?? It was a detriment to the team if its best defensive player got suspended for intentionally stepping on a quarterback's injured leg? No fuckin' way! That can't be, we'll just fine him instead because that's worked so well in the past on this d-bag. I might be mad about this for awhile even if it actually might help the Packers. What a dick.

So here's my take on Suh. I think the bar should be high on determining intent. Players get stepped on dozens of times a game, and if this was a random Bronco, even one with a history, stepping on Ryan Tannehill in a noon game, we'd never hear about it. I think it's pretty hard to prove it was intentional with his back to Rodgers and his momentum carrying him backwards. (Let alone that he pinpointed the injured spot, no less.) Also, it should be kept in mind that the replays of it are showing something that, in reality, played out in less than a second. It seems like the refs on hand, Mike Pereira, and many others indeed saw it that way.



It's also clear, however, he didn't give a shit that he stepped on Rodgers, so maybe that's splitting hairs anyway, and Suh has made sure he gets little benefit in the doubt in these cases, even with a technically clean slate. Thus, I could see a case for it going either way.



What I don't understand is the rationale behind it being overturned, (well, changed to a fine at least) and it smacks of the NFL having to find excuses for kowtowing to public outcry yet again in the first place. Yes, it impacts the team and fans instead of "just the player", and yes this is at a pivotal moment to boot. That's part of the point. You let your team down and now they might lose because of your actions. Did AP's absence not effect his teammates? Should all playoff suspensions be pushed into next season?

Remember when you read that article/listened to that expert this fall who basically told you in one hundred different ways that Jones was a crazy person who knew nothing about building a good football team?

I think (hope) the Packers are playing up the calf issue in order to lure the Cowboys to adjust their gameplan and blitz the supposedly less mobile Rodgers more than they are accustomed to doing. If I saw the number correctly, the Cowboys have one of the lowest blitz rate in the NFL. Rodgers is generally at his best when teams blitz. So if they Packers hold Aaron back all week and don't practice him, perhaps the Cowboys will take the bait.

I can't decide if reporters are trying to create drama or if they really have such little knowledge seemingly basic medical terminology (or at least something that could have been googled or asked about). I saw news yesterday tweeted by one Adam Schefter claiming that Aaron Rodgers calf "has a slight tear in it in addition to be [sic] significantly strained". As someone with doctoral clout living under my roof, I have known for some time that when a medical person refers to a strained muscle, that means that the muscle is torn. The use of the term strain has to do with the degree of the tear: a strain can be mild (first degree), moderate (2nd degree) or severe (3rd degree) depending on how significant the tear is. A severe or third degree strain means that the muscle is unable to be used; a football player can't play with a severely strained calf, if the terms are being applied correctly. So refering to a muscle as "torn in addition to being strained" doesn't even make sense. That would be the same as saying "torn in addition to being torn". #themoreyouknow

I think this lends credence to your theory that this is a fakeout. Rodgers hasn't even seen a doctor or trainer most likely. They're pulling a Bo Whitley!!
