No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

And soon, the playoffs

With just a couple of weeks to go in the regular season, the NFL playoff picture is far from clear. Just five teams have locked up playoff berths - Indy, San Diego, Chicago and New Orleans have won their divisions and Dallas is in the playoffs whether they win the NFC East or not. And the fact is, all of these teams have some big questions hanging over them.

Sure, Indy has Peyton Manning, but unless he's going to get out there and play some rush defense, Indy's got some big trouble. Defense wins in the playoffs, and Indy doesn't have one.

Chicago does not have Peyton Manning. They have Rex Grossman. A few weeks ago, Grossman produced a single game passer rating of 2. That's 2. Out of 158.3. Once again, that's a rating of 2!! But man is that defense awesome.

New Orleans
Who doesn't want New Orleans to win? They are the feel-good story of the year. But you know what doesn't feel good? Losing at home to the Washington Redskins. As regular readers of my blog will recall, Washington sucks out loud. Maybe it was bad week, or maybe the rest of the NFC is going to watching game tape on how to defend Drew Brees.

Did you hear that T.O. spit in DeAngelo Hall's face this weekend? And he likes DeAngelo Hall. Owens also said there is a 'snitch' in the locker-room feeding unfavorable T.O. stories to the media. His name might be Terry Glenn. Distractions? In Dallas? What are the chances? Oh, and did you happen to see who'll be starting at quarterback for Philly against Dallas on Christmas Day? Apparently, he and T.O. have already met. And one of them might be gay. Or so I heard somewhere.

San Diego
OK. I lied. Not all of these teams have big questions hanging over them. Yep, one of these teams is not like the others. At this point, the only question is, can San Diego be stopped? Not if LT has anything to say about it. They just might be the real deal.

And on a final note, how bad does the NFC suck? Seriously. Green Bay might make the playoffs. That's how bad the NFC sucks.
