Packers-Bears on right now, Jets-Steelers on at 6:30.
Aaron Rogers just threw an epic goal-line interception, returned by Bears D to mid-field.
Giving the ball to Todd Collins - who just about gave it back...
Is in! Whoo Hooo!
If Chicago has to play the rest of the way with Collins, I think this one's over...
The time has come for Collins to hang em up. He has spent too much time carrying the clipboard, he looked awful again today.
... Im a bears fan, unless our D and special teams can score all the points today were not going to win.
Yea, this is pretty bad.
... is crushing the dreams of many Notre Dame fans, yet again.
One of my favorite Michigan players, and a heckuva student, too.
Lost at home in 93 and won in 94. Its great to see him still playing. Not many guys 16 years out of college are still in the NFL.
Epic games his senior year. Remy with the big FG at the end to beat ND and then the crushing losses to Colorado on the Kordell Stewart play and then the duel with Kerry Collins and Penn State. Wheatley had an amazing TD run right after half.
Other than Urlacher's INT and sack, the Bears LB play has been pretty suspect all game
GO PACK GO!
This is looking pretty grim for Chicago at this point.....but it is great to see a former Wolverine in there for them.
Given how the national media hoovers the AFC, but I don't see the Pack losing this game or the next one.
Until today, that was the only Green Bay game I watched. I think they sent body doubles to play the Lions.
Matt Flynn played instead. I don't think Rodgers was as sharp as he is now when he went out, though.
Rodgers missed most of that game because the Lions fucked his shit up.
(Not really, but it's the Lions so you can say whatever you want)
Until it comes out that he has town cartilage or a meniscus or something.
TOUCHD...oh wait. Inside the five though.
Ok now: TOUCHDOWN!
Just want this out there, Jay Cutler quit on his team. He is standing there like the whiny asshole that he is and not even attempting to get back in the game. I am a Steeler fan so I am used to seeing Ben go out there with a broken nose or foot and gut through a game. Cutler doesn't have it in him and never will.
it's time for hanie mania
Think they make a t-shirt for that?
... during the original hanie mania 2 years ago, when everyone wanted him to replace grossman and orton
What's the rule where Cutler/Collins can't come back because they were done before the fourth quarter? Is it the amount of QB's the Bears went with?
Those weird, obscure NFL rules, and their impacts on playoff games....
Oh the NFL and their crazy rules, just designed to screw teams over...
and they can't bring in other qb's or something like that? im confused, is this baseball?
also, too bad, i wish todd collins could have led a sweet comeback
You can only bring the 3rd string in (before the 4th quarter) if the other two QBs are out.
Thanks for the clarification. I didn't have any clue what they were talking about.
You clearly don't watch a lot of packer games. Dude is a beast. Too bad he's a buckeye; makes him way less likable to me.
On January 23, 2011, Hanie entered the NFC Championship Game due to a bruised ego to Jay Cutler and second-string quarterback Todd Collins' laziness. He drove the Bears to their first touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter.
Hanie went on to lead the Bears to the Super Bowl.
Well done, internet
Can you imagine Hanie starting in the Super Bowl as his first career start?
that someone thought to update his wikipedia page that fast.
How many people had to google him to figure out who the hell he was. I sure did.
We should have our DB coach after the Bears game.
Maybe not. It's not over yet (please, please, please?).
I would like to see Corwin Brown here. Does Cornflakes have a relationship with existing staff? I thought I remember some say he would do well back here, but thought I read that he burned bridges here??
McCarthy should be fired for all those 4th and short punts in Chicago territory.
It seems like he is Tressel-balling it. He knows that chicago can't score and is content just to make their offense go the length of the field. Reminds me of M-OSU in 07. I am going to have some whiskey now.
Reminds me of when Red Boyou just knelt three times and punted, taking Bobby Bouchier out of the game.
not like MM as coach. But then I heard during pre-game he was up for coach of the year??
I think that's the right call. This is one game where Lloyd Tresselball makes sense.
In other news, I just found out AJ Hawk is still alive!
throwing up in your mouth, just a little right?
not only did he go to boston college but he has big tits
best dance ever after a TD
Wow. BJ Raji just had a pick six.
a character from the Left Behind series?
from the sitcom Green Acres, Mr. Haney
I say Steelers, should be epic.
Woodson returning the kickoff...Nice!
Has Chuck been returning for GB all along? I never noticed.
Fun game ya know
is Woodson, I kinda wish he had returned that KO for a TD and struck the pose.
What a great game! Don't care who wins really, but this is fun.
Game over, go pack go.
Even with that pick Hanie > Cutler.
Pick by GB
Thats a fitting end
With Todd Collins.
C'mon Woodson. Get that ring.
As the only other guy to win the Heisman, National Championship, and Super Bowl. Maybe he can top it with an MVP performance.
I read somewhere else that Marcus Allen was included also. He was a backup on the 1978 USC team that won the UPI/Coaches' Poll National Championship. He won a Heisman in 1981 and a Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP. Of course that could be wrong or the UPI Coaches' Poll may be useless, I don't really know.
The list I was looking at I think was counting only guys who won the Heisman in the same year as the National Championship (meaning they were big contributors). I'll gladly stand corrected. Still an elite group.
He won them, even if they were taken away.
(Dorsett did it as fast as possible...won the first two in one year, then won Super Bowl as a rookie).
I think I like your qualifications for the trivia tidbit more. I was just relaying what I read earlier because it surprised me as well. I don't know if Allen even saw the field that year USC won.
He'll have as many appearances and wins as Manning. ;-)
and thus ends the caleb hanie experience.
Ah jesus, now I have to root for the AFC in the Super Bowl.
... that looked alot like a ron turner bears offense. Who calls the jet sweep on 3rd and 3?
Seriously. What a bizarre call.
I said the same thing, terrible call in that situation.
Mike fucking Martz should probably be fired. Or I'm being irrational. But I do think he needs to explain that inexplicably stupid play call there.
... The play might have had a chance if the package didn't completly give it away. They split a blocking tightend out wide, and motioned the direction of the run. Could it have been any easier for dom capers to know what was going on?
The play might have had a chance if the package didn't completly give it away
Sigh, were you talking about one play alone there? That sounds like Martz's entire game plan.
Congrats to Charles Woodson!!!
Boomer just said that Sanchez is the reason the Jets are winning. I laffed and laffed.
Yeah, living out here in NYC people have really started to drink the Kool-aid about Sanchez despite all proof to the contrary. He's a decent QB who isn't asked to do much, and who tends to benefit immensely from good WRs, a nice line and running game, and a great defense. He's not a bad QB, but he's no better than Jason Campbell or Shaun Hill, and even last week wasn't nearly as good as his stats suggest - a large chunk of his yards came from short slants and dump-offs that the receiver turned into big gains.
Mendenhall is definitely on his game today. He was terrifying at Illinois for spurts, and this feels like one of those games where he crushes linebackers all day.
Good second effort there by Mendenhall. 7-0 Steelers.
Players getting banged up on both squads. (And no, after this season, I don't expect Packer fans to have sympathy).
Pitt or GB?
Woodley has had a sack in every postseason game he has played in...clutch
Yay for another sack on Sanchez!
And I think it's a fumble.
Last week, when we really needed it?!?
for the Jets. The offense is not good enough to put up 27 points against the Steelers defense.
Sanchez isn't the type of QB who can carry the team on his back.
Jets are getting hosed.
Guh this game would be so much more fun to watch if it was Pats-Steelers.
Goalline stand by Steelers!!!
When 4th and 1 at the goal line you run it up the gut against Pitt. At least a Woodley INT there would have been Epic.
is one of the most overrated players in the NFL. I havent seen another player drop as many passes in clutch situations as he has this season.
Well that was a horrible way to get a safety
Get a TD.
TD Jets with 19 unanswered points. 24-19 Steelers.
clear the Steelers are the better coached team. Communication is much, much better between players/sidelines. The Jets time management has been absolutely bad as well.
Game over. Blah.
Steelers convert a couple of first downs and run out the clock. Good game.
I hate the Steelers. Let's go Pack
Go Pack Go!
Go packers! w000000
Da Bears and the Jets were down early, but they did make games out of it.
I did really enjoy seeing Rex Ryan throw down his hat and headset.
Anyone else see Mendenhall hump Roethlisberger on the ground?
Video don't lie.
Yeah, usually it's the other way around.
here we go Steelers, here we go!!
I got a feeling, Pittsburgh is going to the Super Bowl. Stairway to 7 here we come.
