NFL Playoffs

Ok, I'm sorry, but how awesome have the playoffs been so far?!? The Cowgirls got kicked out in the first round, and we found out who's the better Manning! Sorry, but I F$%#ing hate Eli Manning and his John Elway-like appearance in the NFL. That, and I love the Colts. Also, the Bears made it past the first round (please don't respond with the obvious, it was just a joke! ).

If Cedric Benson starts its a sure Bears win, is Jones starts its a close Bears win.

Bears should blow the Seahawks out, period.

As for the playoffs, sure they've been good games, but by and large awful football. Maybe i'm a nostalgic dude, but i liked it better when there were a few dominant teams in the league, and they were GOOD.

I also hate Eli Manning

The good players are still there, you just can't keep enough of them on one team to make for the high quality we saw year in and year out with the Cowboys, the 49ers, the Bills...the dynasty teams. The league has opted to set up for "parody" and they've got it...the price they pay is a lower quality from the "elite" teams. If you can call them that

I'm glad it is set up that way b/c if it was like baseball you would have teams like the Yankees who are always good. I really like the system it makes for more intangibles Chris(?) Ferry (lions receiver), I really enjoy that aspect of the game.

Yeah how's that workin' out for ya. The Chargers got Philip Rivers in return and drafted the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Shaun Merriman with the draft pick they got in the deal.

But it's not like Eli doesn't have talent around him, he's just not playing very well. Really glad to see Rivers outplaying his ass...oh, and the other big name QB taken behind him, Ben Rothlisberger, and he's won a Super Bowl. Eli can shut his mouth now

Funny.... from dictionary.com

par·o·dy /ˈpærədi/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[par-uh-dee] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation noun, plural -dies, verb, -died, -dy·ing.
–noun
1. a humorous or satirical imitation of a serious piece of literature or writing: his hilarious parody of Hamlet's soliloquy.
2. the genre of literary composition represented by such imitations.
3. a burlesque imitation of a musical composition.
4. any humorous, satirical, or burlesque imitation, as of a person, event, etc.
5. the use in the 16th century of borrowed material in a musical setting of the Mass (parody Mass).
6. a poor or feeble imitation or semblance; travesty: His acting is a parody of his past greatness.
–verb (used with object)
7. to imitate (a composition, author, etc.) for purposes of ridicule or satire.
8. to imitate poorly or feebly; travesty.

I know you meant "parity" but you could say football today is a "parody" of the great games of the past!

I agree with with you, every year it is a toss up. The free agency game and the draft give every team a decent chance of picking up some good players. The same thing is slowly happening to baseball as well. The Yankees haven't won in a while. St. Louis, Chicago, Boston were the last three unlikely winners due to this. Scouting new recruits and free agents is almost as important as playing the game today
