Despite last night's debacle in Philly the Bears still control their own destiny and can claim the NFC North with a win over the Packers next Sunday in what should be a high-scoring game.  Had they won last night a win next Sunday would've given them the #3 seed, which may or may not still be possible depending on the tiebreakers if Dallas wins the NFC East.  Even so, I don't see either the Bears or the Packers advancing beyond the 2nd round.

Just heard that Tony Romo has had surgery on his back and is, therefore, done this season.  I do feel sorry for my many friends and colleagues who are Cowboy fans.  At least Romo was able to close out his season on a high note.
 
On the bright side, maybe this will force the 'Boys to actually play defense and run the ball.  That was always the winning formula for my STEELERS!

Well, if Kyle Orton can't get the job done they can now turn to Jon Kitna!

Thanks a lot MetroplexJim, being a lifelong Cowboy fan has been rough for a while. I hope for better days ahead. The defense is BAD. I went watch the Texas high school championship games last Thursday and Friday and when Jerry Jones went out to present the trophies he got booed by a lot of the people there. I felt is was rude and tacky but someone tweeted that he did it to see what it feels like to hold a championship trophy again. I thought that was funny and the fact that the Rangers drafted Russell Wilson which means the Rangers could have the best quarterback in Dallas (Arlington).

Kidding aside, the fact that Jerry Jones was booed in Texas is excreable. 
 
The Steelers could go zero for a decade and no Rooney would ever be booed in Pittsburgh.

I wouldn't paint Cowboys' fans in a bad way in comparison to Steelers' fans. The Steelers have never been an ego trip for the Rooney's. The Rooney's have never been above the team. Let a Rooney start directing the decisions of his GM and head coach and you may hear boos before too long.

You most definitely do have a point there.
 
To quote Inspector Callahan: "A man has to know his limits".
 
In any case, Jones is a "classier act" than the Midget Megalomaniac, Danny Snyder. 
 
(And yes, that is intentionally faint praise).

Saying that Jones is a "classier act" than Snyder is like saying which fart smells better.

I would never boo him. I remember the 90's teams, and he gave up his time to present the trophies to the high school kids. As I said it was tacky and rude. I disagree with some of his decisions but I'm sure he wishes the Cowboys would be back to the Superbowl and at least the playoffs as much or more than me.

As a Steelers fan I have to keep repeating to myself:
 
"Kansas City earned the right to bench their starters".
"Kansas City earned the right to bench their starters".
"Kansas City earned the right to bench their starters".
"Kansas City earned the right to bench their starters".
 
But why did they have to miss a 41 yard FG on a windless, 70 degree day?

No question about it, there were some tough losses yesterday.
 
But if the teams that missed out had taken care of business in previous games there wouldn't have been any issues.

Well, another pro football season is over. No more games to watch, that are of any interest to me. But wait till next year. The Giants are going to be heading to the Super Bowl. With any luck at all they'll be playing the Steelers, and they will be winning their fifth Super Bowl, denying Pittsburgh its seventh. And lleechef will no longer be talking to me.

Can't even imagine what a Giants-Steelers Super Bowl would be like in your household.   I would have to drive to Columbus just to see it in person.  And even if lleechef quits talking, this Steelers fan would continue to talk to you!

I suppose you've heard by now that the Chargers lined up in an illegal formation but no flag was thrown...

There is a lot of whining going on here in Yinzerville today, but beat the Vikings or the Raiders or the Dolphins at home (in the snow!) and the kick would have been irrelevant.  They got what they deserve.

And the Penguins beat the Bluejackets last night in Columbus. When we went to lunch yesterday the Steelers game was on the big screen in thbe bar and the place was about half filled with Steelers fans, a lot of them in town for last night's Penguins-Jackets game.
 
By the way, I look forward to having you here for the 2015 Super Bowl game. Be sure to wear your Steelers gear. I'll make sub sandwiches. You like capicola, mortadella, sopressata, Genoa and sharp provolone, don't you?

Crybaby Harbaugh, Fortywhiners coach, gets an unsportsmanlike.   



Should have been an ejection.

Turns out Harbaugh was right. It was a touchdown on further review.
 
A head coach coming onto the field in a dispute is not an ejection.

So what? That has no bearing on the situation.

Davydd

A head coach coming onto the field in a dispute is not an ejection.



A head coach is never allowed on the field during a game.

Harbough was issued a red challenge flag just like all the other NFL coaches.

During the last two minutes of each half, a coach cannot protest a call. The replay officials call challenges and alert the officials. Any play that looks questionable is challenged automatically.

So. Harbaugh ran onto the field to protest. Within two minutes of halftime. 

That is a flagrant violation.

NFL Rules

Violations [unsportsmanlike conduct] which occur before or during the game may result in disqualification in addition to the yardage penalty. Any violation at the game site on the day of the game, including postgame, may result in discipline by the Commissioner.



He should have been ejected.

I just went through the 2013 NFL Rules Book and was unable to find a single provision for an ejection of a coach. I did find, not in the rule book, that there has never been a coach ejection in the NFL.

We'll be rooting for the Seahawks. I because I'm a big fan of Seattle, the city, and lleechef because she doesn't want the 49ers to get to the Super Bowl where they might win and tie her Steelers with six rings.
