Can't believe the result today feels like a death in the family seeing Atlanta win. I hate to say it but the 49ers have to beat the Dirty Birds but it is a lousy choice either way.

Nothing like warming up an opposing kicker.


I just became a MASSIVE AFC fan for the remainder of the season.

Look like the worst scenario happen if New England win the Afc

Go Texans/Ravens!

I want to be able to root for at least one team in the SuperBowl; If it's the Patriots from the AFC I doubt I'll even watch.

One reason I never really really, truly warmed to Reggie Bush is that I disliked him from college, because I hate Pete Carroll so much.

I should've known that, the one time I needed him to do something, he would *ice* the kicker like a chump. The end of that game was just horrible and I think it gave me whiplash to boot.

I hear what you all are saying about Petey Carolyn.
WTH was he thinking. Clearly, AF missed the first FG. Since it was just for practice, well, the one that counted went as smooth as silk.
It is always best to practice first for anything.

AF in nNFC Conf game. I am feeling sick.
Come on 49er's.
The Football Gods of 2012 have not been good to us at all.
8-8 Saints, No.
AF losing this game, No.
Peyton coming back to N.O. SB in his hometown, No.
Tht would have been good, fun, pr. Something.
Petey Carolyn read Saints book 2012 called How To Lose?
Then he read Less Miles 2012 book, Shoot Yourself In The Foot.

I feel so awful, I might have to go to express my sorrow, condolences to SSeahawks on their board.

And doesn't Mike Smith look like Eddie Munster?
Somebody post up a pic of Smith and Little Eddie Munster.

Texans have to win.,
AF have to lose and lose big next week.
Football Gods, give us something.

In the sport of American football or Canadian football, the act of icing the kicker or freezing the kicker is a tactic employed by defending teams to disrupt the process of kicking a field goal just prior to the snap. Typically, either a player or a coach on the defending team will call time out just as the kicker is about to attempt a game-tying or game-winning field goal. This is intended to either stop the kick immediately as the kicker is mentally prepared, or allow for the kicker to kick immediately after the timeout so that the initial kick doesn't count, in an attempt to mentally disrupt the kicker for the actual kick.

One variant of this tactic, attributed to former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan,[1] is to call time out from the sidelines just before the ball is snapped. This prevents the kicking team from realizing the kick will not count until after the play is over. However, this has the potential to backfire, as the kicker could miss the first attempt that does not count, or it could be blocked, but he could make the second attempt.

Under league rules, a team can only call one time out between plays. Teams that attempt to call two consecutive timeouts are penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct, and the offense is awarded an automatic first down.

I never thought I would ever want the 49ers to win the NFC, but here we are. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE!
