The really crazy part about the Wilson thing - apart from his size - is the fact that State now has 2 starting QBs in the NFL. 

HIM AND RIVERS?

lol @ dumb decision to encourage the guy to play on TV almost every Saturday vs playing baseball and never being seen by anyone

It isn't the players who inflate the numbers, though - it's the guys in the sports information department with or without prompting from the coaching staff.

Don't you just love the way the media (and some in football) like to tell 'us' - the fans - that we don't know shit about running a team when we tell 'them' - the football people and media - that it's FUCKING STUPID to give a guy that type of money on the basis of a 1-3 game sample size. 

The media was complicit in causing those teams to overpay for Kolb and Flynn.  They were ALL wrong. 

Fans win.


Absolutely a dumb decision by NC State.  They lost a great player.  Drafted in the third round.  Now starting in the NFL.  That could have been a big recruiting tool.

I agree SI directors are partly responsible for inflating numbers, but the players participate too.  They don't do anything to correct incorrect height and 40 times from being listed, reported, etc.

Might be 3 in the next couple of years.  Mike Glennon will be a very solid back-up if not starter.

Russell Wilson is the real deal! Such a poised, confident player for only being a rookie. Reminds me of Joe Flacco's rookie season a little but Wilson looks to be more talented.

Pretty darn impressive.  Glad I missed the game.  Those Seahawks just might be a legit SB threat.

Huge loss, but I doubt the Niners would have won the game if he played.  It was a blowout.  I didn't see the game, but if you look at the box score they got outplayed in all three phases. 

And check out the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Full of Niner defensive players.  They just got their butts kicked.

I coach Defense at Hollywood high... I had to go study the Niners Games, their defense is nasty. Smith, smith, willis, Bowman, Gholston. They are stacked

Yep.  Definitely stacked.

Still, I'm concerned after they gave up 28 to NE in a quarter and got rolled by Seattle.  The D is backing into the playoffs.

AFCCG rematch this year?  For whatever reason, even though the Ravens don't have the advantage in the matchups wins/losses wise, I still think they match up better than any other team in the AFC if you see what I am saying.  Brady has the JuJu over Manning, and the Texans are not ready, but whenever Baltimore plays NE, it is a close game, just unfortunately it is usually in NE favor.

I'd rather the Ravens rest their starters against the Bengals and be happy with 10 wins. That way the Colts would be their home opponent in round one. Don't want to play the Bengals in the post season. They are looking pretty scary on defense, lately.

But ultimately, the Ravens are going to go full speed to try to keep momentum after the Giants win. Smart way to go, I just hope we don't get any more injuries.

I hope so. It will mean they get at least that far.  I'm not scared of the Bengals or Colts, but I don't want to have to go to Texas or Denver :-X Hopefully, The Texans or Broncos lose, so we can get a bye.

Very happy.   :)

Have to say though that Wilson's performance was about as impressive as Kaepernick's.

do you still think the game was better in the 80's or is it "better" now because your team is one of the best once again?

The game was better in the 80s and early 90s, especially before FA and the salary cap had such big impacts.  Better teams.  More entertaining.  Better rivalries. 

But who cares about that now?  (Besides you.). I'm just enjoying this season.  Great to see my Niners advance.  Kaepernick is a great story.  So was Russell Wilson.

seahawks were soooo close   :'(
if they wouldnt have been asleep for the 1st half they would have won
if they would have scored even a field goal on the last play of the 1st half they would have won
if their defence did their job and not let ATL get those 2 HUGE plays on that last drive they would have won.

Wilson is a GREAT QB(r.o.y) and is going to have a fantastic future.



congrats to ATL

9.5 dogs again for the Ravens. I love it!!

They always play so much better when they are considered the underdogs. This team really thrives on it, I think.

I'm literally trying to fast foward to Sunday. I cannot wait to watch this battle. They have a chance to get revenge from last year. You can't draw it up any better.


RAVENS NATION!!!
