Tuesday Morning Quarterback opines this week that manly men don't punt. I was especially surprised that Detroit punted with fourth-and-1 at midfield, down 24-7. I mean, you should go for it on fourth-and-1 at midfield almost all the time, but when you're down 24-7 and just playing out the string anyway, what can it possibly hurt to go for it?
I'm always a big fan of the all-unwanted all pros, and this year TMQ reminds us that Rod Smith was unwanted at the start of his college career and his pro career but may very well end up in Canton.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
