2014 NFL Season Thread

What do you think of going to commercial during an injury? Do you read that as trying to make money off an injured player or more towards the lines of not sure what to do while they wait for the player to be attended to?

Just curious.

For the time since Week 10, 1994, the Dallas Cowboys have the best record in the NFL.

You guys know I'm a huge Cowboys homer, I never even once thought this was possible for this particular team.

Can't wait until Monday, next week.

Let the QB controversy in Washington begin... As a Redskins fan, this is honestly just a terrible season to watch week in and week out... Having to rely on your 3rd String QB to orchestrate a win is not how you want a season to go... I really don't know where the Redskins will go in naming a starter for next Monday's game against the Cowboys. They can go with the inconsistent Kirk Cousins or the QB who is coming off his first win since 2012. Either way it's gonna be a tough game and overall bad season unless RG3 can make something out of nothing when he returns.

I've gotta say, this is a good season to be a Lions fan. It's nice when your favourite team is on the winning side of a game that should've been won by a team until they did something stupid to blow it. I've gotta good feeling about the postseason chances of this Detroit team.

Sucks he broke the record in those goofy blue monochrome uniforms.

You're right, they should've paired white pants with those beautiful blue jerseys. I honestly think the blue jerseys are the best jerseys in their set of uniforms.

It's respectful, as opposed to exploiting the player by showing close ups of him laying there screaming and twitching, then showing replays of him snapping his femur 30 times from different angles. Stay with it long enough to determine what happened, maybe show one replay if it's not too gruesome, then cut to break or something.

I didn't even think about that. Yeah, that's really unfortunate.

I know the 49ers defense is banged up but this Broncos offense looks unstoppable -- unfortunately they looked unstoppable last year too. I do think they're better this year, though.

True about the Broncos, but I think Seattle's defense last year was insane, and this year there's no team that matches up like that. I think the Broncos have just about the best chance to win it all, then, Manning retires like Elway? or no?

The Broncos' offense was supposed to be insane last year, but compared to their regular-season output, they shriveled up in the playoffs. They were only held below 30 points three times in the regular season (twice by the same team), but they never reached the 30-point mark in the playoffs and got completely shut down in the Super Bowl. I'd wait and see before anointing them as unstoppable again.

I can't think of anyone who can come close to stopping Manning and this offense other than Seattle, but they've been exposed the past couple of weeks to the point where I don't think they could beat Denver a third consecutive time. They beat them on a neutral site in NY/NJ and again in Seattle. Had the last meeting been in Denver, The Broncs would have won. Right now I have Denver in the Super Bowl, but no one from the NFC has impressed me enough; not even Dallas. If they get in the playoffs, I might consider them. I'm afraid that they've peaked too soon and will collapse in December. If I had to choose one team, it's would probably be Green Bay. However, that's just a 'for the heck of it' pick.

I don't think a 4-3 record means the Bills should be planning for the playoffs, but it at least keeps them in the conversation for now. I see three guarantees losses the rest of the season (at NE, at Denver, Green Bay), but the rest of the way seem possible to end up 9-7 or 10-6.

At the very least, there's hope, even with no running backs for a month.

This has gone so wrong for the Texans. And to think, just 3 minutes ago, it was 13-0 Texans.

This is meltdown of epic proportions by the Texans. All we need is a buttfumble by Fitzpatrick for this to top the list.

Obviously the Niners were injured and it was going to be an ugly night in Denver on Sunday. It irritates me that with the Seahawks struggling so far, the team should be 6-1, but had a Sharks like choke vs the Bears and lost to Drew Stanton. I still think that the division will come down to the Hawks or Niners, but AZ is no slouch with the way they've performed despite their injuries so far this year.

I think the real problem is Wilson is massively full of himself. After the SB win his douche factor skyrocketed.

To say he's "not black enough" is of the highest levels of douchebaggery.

How do you think Wilson is the biggest "douche" out of that scenario?
