2010 NFL Season

OK for everyone fretting about TCF Bank Stadium, let me say one thing.

IT'S A MAJOR OUTDOOR STADIUM IN THE MIDDLE OF MINNESOTA.

I think they thought about, and went through with, winterizing the damn place. Duh.

Alex Smith is starting for the 49ers AGAIN? Really?

That dude is like that one extremely annoying and clingy mistake of a girlfriend some of us have had. Thing is that you really want nothing to do with her, but you really have nothing else feasible going on for you when you're bored. You just know it's a mistake to call her, but you do anyways. And she's not even hot enough to pawn off on even your most desperate of buddies for "future considerations" so she'll stop bugging you when you're not bored.

Either way, the 49ers need to work on their game....

They didn't, though! There aren't any heating coils underneath the playing surface, and the concession stands can't operate at temperatures below 30 or something. It's as if they built the place with no anticipation of winter weather.

Considering Minny is in the Big Teneleventwelve, they built the place with no anticipation of winter football.

It's Minnesota! They could get a foot of snow dumped on them in, like, late October. Target Field is probably better equipped to handle snow than this place. This is kind of embarrassing. Just put the game in St. Louis.

Minnesota really dicked the dog on this TCF Bank Stadium thing. They knew they weren't going to be able to build socialized stadiums for the Twins, Vikings, and the Gophers. So of those three, the one that you leave to piss in the wind is the NFL team? I'm not a big NFL fan, but I can still tell that that's daft. They should've gotten together with the Vikings to build a stadium that both football teams could use, one whose concession stands function in the cold, one with heating coils under the field so it doesn't turn to frozen rubber, one with actual seats and a respectable seating capacity. The Gophers have done precisely dick to deserve their own private stadium, now-obviously slapdash as it may be, while the Vikings are left to inhabit a scene from a Jerry Bruckheimer movie. I expect better from them. The Gophers. Jesus.

Thank you, San Diego, for furthering the cause of glorious eventual Rams (or Seahawk) victory.

:cursing: Seriously Niners, 4th and INCHES you couldn't get. All you needed is net positive yardage to tie it. While it was weak that Smith got tossed, you gotta know the rules about touching officials. Bottom line, this game was a trainwreck. Hoping for a rebound against the Rams, which won't be easy anymore.

Indeed. Ask Cleveland how that kind of planning worked out for them.

Former Bears quarterback Rex Grossman will start in place of Donovan McNabb on Sunday when the Redskins play the Cowboys in Dallas, according to Kelli Johnson of Comcast SportsNet in Washington, D.C.

This gets weirder all the time.

Rest in Peace McNabb.

/He's dead right? That's the only plausible reason to start Grossman over him.

Are they wanting to ensure he's healthy so they can deal him to Arizona in month or 2?

Mike Shanahan has lost his damn mind. That's really the only logical explanation. Either that, or like rams80 said, McNabb has passed away & the Redskins are going to try to keep it a secret "Weekend at Bernie's" style.

Shanahan & Snyder deserve each other.

A note, it is not the taxpayers' responsibility to fund a stadium. If the Vikings want a new stadium so badly, they can foot the bill themselves. Hey, the Giants did it.

Agreed. Unless the fans own the team, like the Packers, they should not have their income taxes subsidize buildings built specifically for an enterprise they have no part of.

Regardless of how the 'skins finish record wise, they are actually worse off then they were under Jim Zorn because the team is a year older and have so many more holes to fill. Mike and Kyle Shanahan along with Bruce Allen have totally fleeced Snyder.

Hey, I was using the Raiders as inspiration!

Seriously though, if you can't get inches on one play you don't deserve to be playing football.
