Hey! It’s Kirk Herbstreit in an earthquake. Far out.


If Tim Tebow is smart, he’ll do his best to become a lefthanded, junior varsity Ben Roethlisberger.

- SUGGESTION: Those of you who watched St. Louis vs Arizona…try the MLS playoffs. It’s a better use of your time.

- I was raised a San Francisco 49er fan, concurrent with their Bill Walsh/Joe Montana/Jerry Rice/Ronnie Lott apex. As such, I am a skeptic. 7-1 is 7-1, but never forget that Alex Smith is their quarterback. Epic Disaster Fail is just a snap away.

- I still don’t trust Joe Flacco in a big spot in the postseason. Until I do.

- Dallasis an enigmatic as their quarterback. They’re a crappier version of San Francisco. What the hell is a Sea Hawk, anyway?

- Be honest. Did you think Miami would score 31 points over the rest of the season? Kansas City should rehire Dick Vermeil just so he can cry over that effort.

- Someone should tell Carson Palmer that Al Davis died this year. He ain’t gonna die twice, bro. This is a one-time shot of Football Karma for Oakland. They ought not blow it. No matter how mystically motivated the Football Gods may be in helping Los Raiders upon the passing of His Davisness, they are not going to reward 3-interception performances.

- Perhaps Eli Manning wasn’t as full of spit as we thought. Elite quarterbacks beat elite opponents. ALSO: New England’s defense isn’t suspect because it allowed a reasonable 24 points. It’s suspect because they allowed their team to fall behind 10-0, which messes with The Game Plan.

- The Jets manhandled the Bills. The Jets hit the Bills harder, more often. The Bills Failed the Ear Drum Test. Sound upon Physical Impact for the majority of the game’s collisions favoredNew York. Never forget that Football – above all else – is a Linear Exhibition of Violence by Manic Beast Men upon other Beast Men. The Most Violent have The Advantage.
