This week in the NFL was pretty crazy, so I figured to make a thread just for this.

The top story is obviously the Jags tearing up the Bucs. Not every week the top 2 teams in the NFL go at it on a neutral field. Blaine Gabbert is obviously a top 5 quarterback.

But in all seriousness, Tim Tebow. This guy is just ridiculous. Once again he is absolutely shut down for 95% of the game but wakes up the second he gets in serious trouble. Granted, he got a lot of help from Matt Prater, hitting a 59 yard field goal. But its ok, since Prater also missed a 22 yarder early in the game.

John Fox even said after the game that his guys are probably just in la-la land for 55 minutes until they realize "hey wait, we could lose this football game!" and then wake up.

Even when Twbow fumbled at 50 late in the 4th, and they were still down 10-0, you knew something was going to happen. You knew that the game wasn't over. And of course it wasn't.

I cannot wait to see ESPN First Take tomorrow. Stephen A. Smith hates Tim Tebow but he has been eating Skip Bayless' words every week.

On a more depressing note, the Cowboys found a new way to lose yesterday. Compete, pull away, then collapse. Tom Coughlin taught Jason Garrett a lesson on when to ice a kicker and when to not. Give credit to Eli Manning and Danielle's Giants though. They won the game, even though it sucks with all the penalties we had. Tony Romo and Felix Jones could not have played any better, but the Giants still beat em.

Also, Lasagna's cheeseheads force-fed the Chokeland Raiders, 46-16. Its almost scary how good they are. They really need to go for it all.

Also, next week the Broncos will be playing the Patriots. You'd think it'd be their toughest challenge yet. But the Patriots' defense is ranked dead last at 32. They're a passing offense, but the strength of the Broncos defense is their pass rush and secondary.

The bronco's game was epic. Though probably only because I was stuck listening to it on 970 AM, which is an Oakland Radiers networks, and they were tired of looking at the Greenbay game, so listening to them foam at the mouth about Tim Tebow and the Broncos just made it so much better.

It should also be noted that in the Greenbay v some highschool team (or what seemed like that), Rogers only played for 2 1/2 quarters. It is clear now that Greenbay is going to go for the 16 - 0, but they are going to do all they can to avoid potential injury risks.

The Giants are playing some damn good football. They are the only team to achieve a tie at some point with the Pack in the fourth quarter, and they handled the Boys easy in the last few minutes when they needed it the most. Eli proved he was a step above Romo, if it was a question coming in. I'd put Brees, Brady, Rodgers, and *Peyton in tier one (elite), Eli and Ben in tier two (great), and then a whole bunch of people (including Rivers and Romo) in tier three (good). The Giants are clearly trying to be that sleeper that gains momentum late and rides it through the playoffs.

There will be two awesome games next week:

N.E. @ Denver
Pitt @. SF


I think the Steelers are going to embarass the Niners. The Niners put on a good showing this year, but it's all going to come crashing down. And as for Tebow, what "tier" should he fall in? This next game is going to be the biggest test for him yet. The best QB he's beaten has been Rivers, who's been losing to everybody anyway. If Tebow pulls this off, then haters will have nowhere to turn, at least not until next season when he'll be, theoretically speaking, better adapted to by other teams.

Could you imagine Tebow vs. Rodgers in the Superbowl? Unbelievable.
