Get after it Neck!!!


I am surprised that Polamalu hasn't broken or tied that record as much as he blitzes.
I am completely over the Polamalu thing.

Is he really good? Yes.

He is allowed to make occasional, spectacular plays because the rest of the defense holds up around him.

Polamalu playing in an average or worse defense would get cut for leaving everyone else out to dry.

The Steelers defense is good enough to allow him to freelance. He is EXCEPTIONAL at doing that at times. He guesses wrong often.

The Neck isn't close to being the athlete that Troy is. He makes big plays anyway.

Where Yaw-At?
Well I certainly wasn't in that group. The videos I posted of Harper should have been enough for anybody to realize that this guy is a player.

I hope we send 0 to the Pro Bowl and play the next week, I liked that in 2009.

Is the record 8.0 by Adrian Wilson (Ariizona Cardinals)?........

Would love to see Roman sack Matt Ryan a few times on Monday night, and break the record.

Quarterback Drew Brees received the third highest amount of votes – behind only Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers

Really behind Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers. C'mon Football Fans. Popularity contest

The numbers in Brees' favor are staggering. With two games to go, he has thrown for 4,780 yards -- the most in NFL history through 14 games -- and is on pace for 5,462 yards. In a season in which he is averaging 341.4 passing yards per game, Brees needs to average only 152.5 yards in the next two games to break the record. Only three teams have held Brees to fewer than 300 passing yards, and none did better than Tampa Bay, which gave up 258 yards in Week 9.

You know what's really sad though......Brees is breaking all of these major NFL passing records, yet Rodgers & Brady have more Pro Bowl votes. How shady is that. It's just like in 2009, when he had better stats & won the Super Bowl.....yet Manning won the league MVP. The man gets no respect!
Well said man...what a shame.
