How does he put Miami in his "Fine Fifteen" and praise Tannehill after the performances they turned in the last two weeks, with the playoffs on the line?

Concerning Chudzinski, if the owners and GM Lombardi are admitting that Chudzinski's hiring was a mistake and that he is not the person they want -- for whatever reason -- to be their head coach, they should be applauded for firing him now. It is best to cut your losses early. (Like Oregon should do with Helfrich.)

Mike McCarthy, PK's coach of the week, made maybe the worst coaching decision of the week by not going for 2 in 4th quarter.

You are wrong: McCarthy made the right call.

I don't know if it was clearly right or clearly wrong, but it was certainly a reasonable decision.

Considering the rate they both were scoring you would expect another score from the Bears and you would need another stop to win regardless so failing a two point attempt would put the Packers down two scores if the Bears got a TD. Advanced stats says it was about break even.

Love Les Snead's sense of humour, it's refreshing.

Why am I not surprised to see King cheerleading (even though he claims he isn't) for taxpayer subisidies to ESPN?

More like Karmic payback for Super Bowl 40. Leavy giveth and Leavy taketh away. They should be content with the welfare bowl trophy they got handed in 2005.

Congratulations. This post means there's been more whining about SB XL in the FO comments this week than there's been from Steeler fans about the officiating Sunday.
