That was a hell of a game between the Saints and Rams. Drew Brees should be the MVP IMO this year. I also enjoyed the Patriots and Packers. It seems Rogers can't catch a break. 1st he was did in last week by his selfish kick returner and Sunday his RB fumbled in a critical part of the game when they had momentum. Guess those are the breaks.

Well I've come to the conclusion that Dak isn't a franchise QB and it doesn't help that Scott Linehan's offensive schemes are archaic. I know Garrett isn't going anywhere but JJ needs to let Linehan go asap. Not sure who needs to be the OC but it definitely doesn't need to be Garrett either.

Pete,

Brees and Mahoomes are far and away the top two MVP candidates. No others need apply.

I agree with you about Prescott. You guys are going to need to enter the great quarterback hunt again. To be honest it may be better if you guys lose as much as possible now. If I were a Cowboy's fan that's what I would want.

Well my thing is what good QB is coming out this year? All the good ones came out last year. And then you have JJ spewing that BS about giving Dak an extension....smh.

Pete,

Yeah its always a crapshoot. I'm hearing a lot about that Justin Herbert from Oregon right now but you know how that goes. Names will fluctuate by draft time.

Something that makes me sick is the Steelers absolutely loved Mahoomes but didn't move up to draft him. Sometimes if you love a guy you move up, especially if he's a QB. But they played it the usual Steeler way and waited to see if he fell to them. Well KC did the smart thing and moved up to get him. Now the Steelers can try beat him the next twelve years. Good luck with that.

By the way, how do you like lb Vander Esch? Remember when you took him I said the Steelers would have taken him and I thought you would love him. I haven't had a chance yet to really see how he is doing so I'm asking what you think.

Oh Vander Esch is the real deal. Sean Lee's days are numbered. If you ask me, I'd start him over Sean Lee and be done with him. Vander Esch is a throwback with raw talent.

Pete,

Yeah that doesn't really surprise me. I did a ton of research on him because he was the guy the Steelers wanted to replace Shazier and he impressed the hell out of me.

Another guy we really needed and they wanted but they didn't move up to get.

I'd love to get Lee lol, he's way better than anyone we have.

Pete he did nothing in HS but kick a**, lol. Perhaps the added weight? Or maybe the speed and power of the pro game? Tough question why he is so fragile now.

Seems he's been bitten by the injury bug since we drafted him in 2010. But anyway, I really do like the Vander Esch kid.

My heart just broke for Dez. The Saints were a perfect situation for him and just unbelievable how he tore his achilles at practice. Man oh man I fear his career is definitely over. Prayers up for Dez.

Pete,

Yep. That was the perfect situation for him. If anyone could have gotten what was left out of him it was Brees. It's a shame for him and the Saints.

Since prayer doesn't do a damn thing as been shown over and over again in the entirety of human history I won't waste my time with that, but I'll wish him a very productive very scientific based rehab so he may return next year if he wishes.

Since you asked. What I mean is history shows very clearly that prayer, no matter the religion doesn't do a thing. It's never saved anyone from sickness or death. It's never saved any people from extermination. Ask the millions of gauls the Romans killed, the indians we wiped out, the 6 million Jews the Nazis exterminated or the quarter of the worlds population the black plague wiped out, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist. 25 million. Never stopped or prevented a war or genocide. The over 100 million in the two world wars. All those countless, useless prayers they sent in heartbreaking desperation.

So to recap, Baptist, praying to the Big Nothing is tantamount to asking a snake for help. You won't get much return on the investment. Unless maybe it's a talking snake.

Ok, Some of the bigger results from last week: The Steelers take down the Ravens in Baltimore to avenge an earlier defeat and take hold of the AFC North. The Vikings maul the Lions in another division game. In the game of the week the Saints pull the pin on the Rams undefeated season with a 45-35 win at home in what was just a great game and very likely a preview of the NFC championship game. The battle of the legends, Brady vs Green Bay was anti climatic with the Pats winning 31-17. This week we have New Orleans at the Bengals. Hot Carolina against hot Pittsburgh. Detroit at Chicago. Jacksonville at Indy. The Jags need this win to have any hope. New England at Tennessee is a nice one. Seattle at the Rams and Dallas at Philly round out the more interesting match-ups. The Quoll Top Ten. Saints. 8-1. Wins in Baltimore, Minnesotta then at home against Rams force a move to number one. Next up a tough game in Cincinnati. Rams. 8-1. Close loss on the road in New Orleans nothing to be ashamed about. Home against the old division king Seattle. Chiefs. 8-1. Easy win over Cleveland. Easy win over Arizona next. Patriots. 7-2. Home win over a fading Packer team. Tougher test now in Tennessee. Steelers. 5-2-1. Terrific road win over divisional foe Baltimore. Next up at home against streaking Carolina. Chargers. 7-2. Keep showing they are for real with road win in Seattle. Next up the hapless Raiders, the worst team in NFL history. Houston. 7-3. They barely win in Denver for their fifth straight win to keep the division lead. A bye this week. Carolina. 6-2. The maul Tampa for their fourth straight win. Next up tough Thursday travel week to Steelers. Vikings. 5-3-1. Nice home win to push Lions back. Next up Mr. Bye Week. Chicago. 5-3. Tears the Bills a new one 41-9.....

Hard to believe are entering week 11 but we are. Man the season goes fast, well unless your say a Raiders fan. Last week two of the three hottest teams currently in football had their most impressive wins of the season with the Steelers just toying the the Carolina Panthers to the tune of 52-21 and the Saints doing exactly the same to the Bengals 51-14. Right now these two teams are playing the best all around ball in the league and their offenses look unstoppable. Chicago continued their lead in the NFC beating division foe Detroit. The Bears not only have a good defense but their offense is scoring too. The Colts pretty much ended Jacksonville's playoff hope with a 29-26 win. Well, almost anyway. The Jaguars along with Philly are the two biggest surprises in the league this season as far as failures go. We never expected the Jags offense to be that hot with Bortles but man, what happened to the stellar defense? Even the defensive backs suck and they are loaded there. The Titans just creamed the Patriots 34-10. When was the last time the Pats lost so big so deep into the season? I'll tell you, eight years ago. The Pats are still good but they are not the juggernaut of the last many years. The defense is weak, Josh Gordan has not integrated well into the offense, Gronk is getting hurt again and Brady looks like he may be starting to slip. They are not the sure bet to emerge from the AFC any longer. The Rams swept Seattle in the second close, really good game between the two to wrap up the division. They lost Cooper Kupp for the year and that's going to hurt. Dallas played by far their best game of the year taking out defending champs....

How bout those Cowboys?? With the acquisition of Amare Cooper and the season ending injury to Alex Smith the Boys are suddenly very relevant in their division and playoff birth is tantalizingly close. Since it was a Thanksgiving Day special I will wait until all this weeks games are played and comment more on that next week. This article and the top ten are a product of last weeks results as always. And let's get to it: My Steelers kept their win streak alive despite Big Hen's desire to implode in an interception festival against the Jaguars. Fortunatly for him that team has zero passing offense and Hen finally caught fire in the fourth quarter which was all it took to overcome those turnovers and get a 20-16 win in Jacksonville. He and they were very lucky it was the Jags they were facing. Seattle took a close one, 27-24 in a really good game against the Packers. These two teams always place it close and hard when they meet. Can you imagine an Aaron Rodgers team missing the playoffs? It could happen and right now it looks like it will. Coach McCarty may end up jobless if that happens. Dallas went on the road and took out Atlanta 22-19. Look out because the Cowboys are making a playoff push. Baltimore further crushed the Bengals playoff hopes with a 24-21 win. Detroit gave fading Carolina another loss, 20-19. One of the hottest teams in the league? The Colts. Luck is finally getting protection and he is taking full advantage by having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league. This week they took out division rival Tennessee 38-10. Houston kept to their winning ways beating Washington 23-21. The Chargers lost a game they shouldn't have, to Denver 23-22. The Chargers always manage to do that. New Orleans showed....

Another week quickly gone as is the season. My Steelers lost on the road to the Broncos. I said last week if Hen didn't play better they would lose. He threw two brutal, stupids picks and they did, 24-17 because unlike the offensiveless Jaguars the Broncos could take advantage. Two other turnovers in scoring territory reeled their fate. Dallas won a huge one 31-23 over the Skins and suddenly they are the top seed in the division. Baltimore beat Oakland to move into the last AFC wild card slot. Seattle beat Carolina to really start to make their wild card run. Philly may have salvaged their playoff chances with a come from behind win over the Giants. The Vikings pretty much eliminated Green Bay with a 24-17 home win and kept their playoff chances going. Houston finished off the Titans division hopes beating them 34-17. Big games this week: The Saints at Dallas. If Dallas can win this game they are really rolling to the post season. The Steelers who dropped from the second seed to fourth face a big game against the Chargers who are now ahead of them. This game looks a like a strong playoff preview game for both. The Vikings travel to New England. And in the Monday night game a huge battle between Philly and Washington. The World Famous Quoll Top Ten: Saints. 11-1. Another easy win, this time Atlanta played the victim. Upstart and hot Dallas tries to derail the Brees express in Big D. Rams.11-1. Off the bye week. Easy win in Detroit ahead. Chiefs. 9-2. Off the bye. Another bye against Oakland. Last weeks was probably the tougher assignment. Houston. 9-3. Six a row with a beat down of the Titans. Tough Cleveland comes to town in the Watson-Mayfield battle. Bears. 8-3. They beat Detroit without Trubitsky. Now can they beat the Giants without him? New England. 9-3. They come....

Coming down the home stretch now and things are getting tight and frantic for the available playoff spots. Every game is vital now for those select teams. The big news out of the league this week was the Chiefs cutting troubled running back Kareem Hunt. Hunt is a beast, apparently off field as well as on it. While they have many other weapons he was integral to their running attack and offense and he just can't be replaced. This will hurt them. There just is no way around that. Last weeks big upset and really one of the biggest of the year was the Cowboys showing tremendous defensive acumen in taking out the red hot Saints. Not only did this win put the Cowboys in the drivers seat for the division but it knocked the Saints out of the number one seed in the NFC. Great news for Dallas, terrible news for New Orleans since now they would have to beat the Rams in LA if the playoff seeding remains the same. Two teams that were thought to have an inside track to a possible super bowl berth showed why they don't as the Vikings made New England horrible defense look like one of the best in football falling 24-10. The Steelers came from ahead and a 16 point lead to lose a crucial game at home to Chargers 33-30. First time in Heinz filed history a Steelers team led by 14 or more and lost. Baltimore kept their playoff hopes very alive and closed the gap with the Steelers with their third win in row, 26-16 over Atlanta. The gimmick of running quarterback Lamar Jackson will come to a very ugly end sometime but right now it is fresh and new and working. The Packers were officially eliminated in a horrific home lose....

Some interesting results from last week: The Steelers took a huge playoff blow losing their third straight to the Raiders 24-21. The big issue after this game was the length Tomlin sat Big Hen after he was hurt. There is little doubt it was the major factor in costing them the game. The question is, with so much on the line, why hold him out till they fell behind? This was a must win game. Tomlin has made many mistakes over the years as those who live here know, this was just the latest and one of the more costly. The Colts pulled a division stunner taking down the longest winning streak in football, beating Houston 24-21 in Houston. This catapults the Colts right back in the division hunt. The Chiefs won a war at home against the Ravens, 27-24. This bailed out the Steelers to a degree and kept them barely ahead of the Ravens in the division race. But it may have only delayed the inevitable. New England lost on an amazing last play in Miami, 34-33. Bellichick pulled one of the all time coaching blunders by having Gronk in on defense on that last play when there was no way Miami could have thrown that ball into the end-zone. That blunder proved very costly as it really hurt their chances to secure home field throughout the playoffs. Dallas won a HUGE game, 29-23 at home against the Eagles. It now appears the Cowboys will be winning that division. My what a difference a month makes. Chicago showed just how rough and tough their defense is by totally stymieing the Rams offense, with a physical 15-6 beat-down in Chicago. Who could imagine any team holding the Rams to 6 points. Does anyone want to play the Bears in the playoffs? NO. Finally the Seahawks continued....

Not slacking off. Just got tired of wasting forty minutes of my life every week writing to myself. No one says anything, no one responds so why bother? I already have all my thoughts in my head so why repeat it here for myself?

Kkennon,

Well you got your answer. The Chiefs Pats game was even better!

Two overtime championship games. Wow.

My two lasting impressions from the weekend?

That disgraceful no call on the Rams for pass interference. Wtf! How do those Saints fans and players feel after losing to the Vikings on that freak play last year and now this?

And 41 year old Tom Brady converting three third and tens on that game winning drive. Are you kidding me?

The Master. We will never see his like in any sport. Enjoy him while he's there. He is the GOAT of all time in all of sports. Unreal.
