Sanchez. The infamous Butt-fumble.

Edit: I could have seen Tebow doing it too. Basically any Jets QB's career is going to be ruined after playing there.

Not quite XD The first set will be to pay off a credit card, the next 2k (well, don't need the full 2k, but wouldn't hurt to have the extra!) will be for the fiancé and me both to see the chiropractor daily so we can permanently fix a few problems. The next will probably go into our wedding/honeymoon or wedding/house (though might bump it to 5k for that >.>), and then maybe with the last set we'll finally go on that cruise we've been wanting - though that'll probably be our honeymoon at that point xp

Best. Play. Ever.

Want to know something funny? According to... I want to say Peyton, the reason for it was because he couldn't hear the calls made over the sound of the crowd. There was another team last season (I want to say the Broncos, but it might have been someone else) who had the option of playing a 'crowd track' to prepare against us, but the coach turned it down. I remember this clearly (even if I can't remember the team) because the team lost horribly against us. I don't think it was the Broncos though, thinking on it, because I think I remember hearing that they practiced with music loud enough to blow out their speakers before the Super Bowl, and it still didn't reach the 12th man decimal XD

It's really amazing how many of the 12th man/woman went to NY for the Super Bowl. We got that stadium rockin' too!
Go Hawks

ps... Sunday, it's Seahawks going to San Diego to play the Chargers.


Hmmm... Seahawks / Chargers...
That would be a cool Super Bowl!

That was freakin' amazing! I still remember seeing videos of the flood of green and blue filtering out of the stadium. I swear it looked like they easily outnumbered NY fans XD

Hawks vs Chargers? o.o I might have to watch that one. If only to throw it in my brother's face when we win >.>

Ouch!
The Chargers beat the Seahawks.
They out-played us...
Maybe we play better if it's below 72 degrees...?

NFC West is tough, can't lose more than a couple & still win the division!

I didn't get to see the Hawks game. Hopefully they will bounce back next week.

Of course I started Colin Kaepernick this week instead of Philip Rivers. I'm currently 5 points behind in my game. I could be 10 points ahead with a locked-in win! Now it's all on Zach Ertz to win it for me tonight.

That's all that really matters. I enjoy seeing the 49ers lose too. I don't hate the team, just hate Kap. Until he is gone, I pray for their failure.

I sort of have the same feeling for Pete Carroll. It's a tough call, because I've been rooting for Russell Wilson for a long time, but Carroll just seems slimey. Part of that probably stems from his days at USC (although I should probably thank him for killing USC's program), but I feel like his reaction to the blown call in the 2012 Seattle-Green Bay game on Monday Night Football exemplified everything I don't like about him.

He couldn't really turn down the ruling, and it was an important play. Maybe he should have slinked off after having the call go for the Hawks? There's a lot of blown calls every game, both for and against you. The fill-in refs were really screwing up the whole game!

Obviously he's not going to slink off, but I don't think too many other NFL coaches would exhibit that level of enthusiasm in those circumstances. Maybe Rex Ryan or Chip Kelly. It seems likely by that point whoever they had on staff to review replays during the game would've told Carroll what was going on and the touchdown should likely be taken away. I think most of the other coaches would've been more along the lines of a sigh of relief, they squeaked one out, maybe got away with one, but they're already thinking of work to do so they're not in that situation again.

I dunno. I mean, it's not as bad as how some of the players have celebrated wins in the past. I know coaches are supposed to exemplefy how the players should react in those situations and keep their heads in the game, but I'll be honest. I was celebrating right along with him, even though I had to acknowledge it was a bad call. Luck just happened to be on their side that year with how crappy those fill-in refs were x.x

Also, gotta at least give credit in the team he had built. How many coaches passed up Russell Wilson because he didn't have the right build, how many folks said he'd never make qb because he was too short? Yet Carroll and company scooped him up, and now Wilson's the role model for countless little kids who were told they'd never play football for this or that reason. Not to mention Sherman. Guy definitely has been going Mohammed Ali all over the NFL, with a big mouth and bigger plays, despite being picked so far down the line. The entire defense that has been crafted over the past few years is the absolute perfect BOOM power to back up an epic qb, and the game this season against the Packers showed ~everyone~ playing a part so the entire weight of the game didn't rely on just one person.

The only two real problems are 1) Every time we have a win at home now, it's almost guaranteed we'll have a lose at an away game. Thankfully this isn't 100%, but something really needs to be done to keep the players' head in the game. As already pointed out, the west coast can be very unforgiving with losses. It's not enough to win at home. We gave up a game to the Chargers, and though the 49ers lost, they're still going to be out for our blood. We have to blow every other team out of the water no matter where we go. 2) How long will this last? Carroll was able to build such a strong team because he bided his time, looking for potential talent and players who just needed to get their foot in the door to show the world what they were made of instead of picking out a whole bunch of well-established (and expensive) veterans. This allowed him to splurge on specific players like Tate, but as soon as contracts are up though, especially Wilson's, Carroll will have to start anew. There might be another dry, agonizing period as things cycle through. This will be lessoned thanks to the very simple and straight-forward plays Carroll and company have been using, but by how much?

Blech, sorry for the rambles >.< I guess that's my rant for the week on foozeball.

Old co-worker tried to teach me during baseball season, but there was so much that went into it that I kinda flailed >.<

Could also do a game picker. I definitely have fun with those! :3

I don't think you have to worry about losing Russell Wilson; it's extremely rare for a team to let go of a quarterback that won them the Super Bowl if they feel they still have that potential in them.
