Not a knock, but sports journalism is seemingly one of the easiest gigs around. Once you get a designated spot, people are required to feed you info, essentially writing your column, or tweet, as the case may be. I get that Im oversimplifying a bit, but still...

Lol, Patricia and the Lions had that coming. The dude basically follows the Belichick dress code, and he's gonna criticize another guy for posture? FOH with that.
I don't care whether the team is 8-0 or 0-8, but clearly when the team is 3-4 coming off a lackadaisical loss to the Seahawks I really don't want to hear him bitch about someone's posture. He can get lost if he pulls that BS again too.

I was sad to see Alex Smith hurt. I think he will be out for a while.
I became a real fan of his when he was so disrespected in KC in favor of the flash of Kaepernick.
Aside from the fact he's been referent to with the pejorative "game manager" tag by the epicyclic sports media. A QB IS a game manager by definition you morons.
I digress.
Also happy for Colt McCoy, he's a tough gamer and such a class guy. Hope he performs well.
Side note, I have to admit that was quite the tacky call on Norman at the end of the game to give Houston a first down.

Mark Sanchez getting another shot is laughable.
The ending of Pats/Dolphins was hilarious.
The Bears are for real, and the NFC will be tough for everyone in the playoffs. But itíll be hilarious when Dallas gets exposed there again.

Cowboys are a decent team but in no way are they a serious contender. Middle of the pack with potential is all. Cooper is paying dividends, but he still was not worth it IMO.
Thats what I don't understand, I mean I do, because you want asses in seats, but still, you don't have a chance in hell of winning it all, so why give up a first? Perhaps I put too much stock in picks.

Texans wasted so many years when they signed Fitz as QB. Same sitch. They were not going to contend, so why not draft and groom. You ate up Andre's career and some of Hopkin's as well instead of building a franchise. But, if I knew what the hell I was talking about, Id be a GM I guess.

Not a Bears fan by any stretch of the imagination, but that was a brutal way to lose.

Man, that sucked so bad for them.
The fans behavior is boorish though, especially considering the kick was partially blocked.

I am happy for him but wow what a lot of pressure for your first time head coaching job.  I know some will say there will be less pressure taking over a perennial loser but I don't think so in this case.  You have a young stud QB with a huge attitude that will speak his mind to the media.  I think he would have been better served being the OC for this next year and then leaving the nest.  I hope he thrives, just think the deck is a bit stacked against him.
