Mike: Green Bay is on the shores of Lake Michigan, not Lake Superior. Although sleet came to those shores, too.

I submitted an Extra Points link for Jeff Fisher's contract extension, but I see Tanier beat me to it. It looks like Kroenke is inflicting the same level of pain to LA football fans that he did to those in St Louis. At least now, the celebrities who attend Rams games won't feel guilty leaving the game early as the Rams will continue to suck.

Saw this online elsewhere:

Nothing new for Teflon Fisher. He’s coached 22 years with only six winning seasons and three losses away from having more than any other head coach in NFL history. When a nuclear explosion rids the world of humanity, there will only be Jeff Fisher organizing a group of 53 cockroaches into a 7-9 insect football team.

Fisher once again ran a fake fake punt this week. That is, they lined up in a fake punt formation before motioning to a regular formation and punting it away. Who has time to scout the opposition or design an effective offense when you're too busy practicing the most intricate punt team in the league?

With the Bucs as playoff contenders will Lavonte David finally make a probowl?

It's tough for a 4-3 OLB to make the Pro Bowl since they're going up against all the 3-4 OLB's with gaudy sack numbers.

Not exactly an original point-of-view, but I do like the fact that you pointed out Uribes' lack of support from his voting base. He still enjoys the widespread popularity and the support of a large sector of Colombian society. The controversy should be considered in the near future.
