    Just watching NFL-AM and the block on Talib, which injured his knee, was called by the commentator as a fine, as in financial penalty type of block. Why ? Can somebody explain it to me please ?

    We'd never get away with all of the holding and we don't have anything that faintly resembles an Earl Thomas type.

    It is mad talent. Every team practices just that. Some guys are amazing at what they can do with their bodies mid flight. Peanut Tillman from the Bears was unreal at that.

    Not sure exactly what they would fine him under, but it was really an illegal play that should've been a flag. All receivers are supposed show intent to run their route. That was obviously not done by Welker. His sole objective was to set a pick so Thomas could get open. Most of the time you just try to get in his way, not take him out. Welker could clearly have got to the other side of the field by going behind Talib. He changed course at the last minute and lowered his shoulder right into him.

    Thank you ;). I didn`t understand the big stink as it was not that obvious to me. I appreciate the explanation.

    We need to at least put an above average defense on the field....and surround Rodgers wih weapons galore if TT keeps missing in the draft for defense.

    Seahawks have Tip Drill Thursday every week. There is a certain degree of luck involved in every great play.

    As for the OP, I'd rather the Packers be the Packers and not try and imitate anyone.

    The Pats incredibly horrible pass rush made the Broncos offensive line look much better than it actually is. It won't look like that against Seattle.

    They've been good all year though except 3 games really. Two against the Chargers whose coach was on the Denver staff last few years and the Colts. I'm not saying the Seahawks won't get any pressure, but I'd be shock if it's consistent at all.

    Sherman said he wanted to intercept it but Crabtree pushed him at the last minute. Weather he had the presence of mind to know his teammate was there to get his batted ball I don't know. Either way he was all over that route...perfect reaction and play on the ball. Looked nice.

    Play calling also helps too. Moreno is a great running/receiving threat... Manning could get the ball out quick to Welker and Decker... Thomas and Thomas give Manning deep over-the-middle threats. The two week wait could give the Broncos ample time to game plan properly.

    Agreed. I think he has taken 6 or 7 hits his entire career. His line has always been well above average, must be nice.

    C'mon now...he broke up the pass and his safety happened to be there to pick it off. That's it.

    I don't know how to measure the skill verses luck and how to prove it one way or another to you...but...like I said...these guys run tip drills all year long. they work on plays just like that. I'll flip the question on you....how many times did you see packers this year mistime their jump and NOT make a play that was probably easier than that one?
