Need to bench 1 of the following this week for the semi-final match-up in my fantasy league:
Danario Alexander Vs. Carolina
Randall Cobb @ Chicago
David Wilson @ Atlanta

Right now, I'm leaning towards benching Cobb, though I feel like I can't go wrong with any of these guys. What you guys think?

Although their real problem is their defense, it will be interesting to see if the offense improves with this change, and if Rice gets to carry more now.
Through the first quarter, we've seen nothing new out of the Ravens under new OC Jim Caldwell. No hurry-up, no Ray Rice emphasis, no first downs. Ugly.

Meanwhile...Adrian Peterson.

-can't wait until the Patriots and 49ers game tonight. New England is tough to beat in December at Gillette Stadium. 20 straight wins at Foxborough in the month of December.

-possible Superbowl preview game.

-still a close game, 38-31. This QB Kaepernick is surprisingly good. -strong arm, can run. Brady and the offense are making a run at a comeback. Come on Patriots!

Does this thread give a yay or nay to the falcons?
I personally think they can go far, especially after watching them against the Giants.

Nope..falcons are bigtime playoff chokers. The won most of their games by a touchdown. Matt ryan suuucks..he doesnt have that "killer instinct" that elite quarterbacks have. They have a weak division too

Post game thoughts from the Jets/Titans game:

Coaching change: Is Rex Ryan fired from the coaching job with the Jets? I question his decision to keep starting Sanchez. The Sanchise has not been consisten all season. The Monday Night showed that Sanchez is a horrible QB. Five turnovers???

Tim Tebow's future: What's gonna happen to Tebow for next season? Will he be traded? Will he be the new no. 1 quarterback for the Jets? The Montreal Alouettes own Tebow's CFL rights. Could Tim be playing in the CFL?

It's tough because they only bring him in for goofball gimmick plays, so you don't really know if he can be a starter or not. Since they are out of the playoffs they should see how he does for whatever games remain (no idea how long the schedule is)

One thing is for sure, Sanchez is no good

BTW can someone explain why I knew who Tebow was before I started watching NFL? He was referred to a lot last year it seems, something about being an annoying religious person or something... Wiki tells me nothing

He was huge last year - He's really a RB playing at the QB position...He can't pass for shit, but he somehow kept winning games last year and, on numerous occasions, he'd win games on the final drive of the game. That was "Tebow Time." The team was 1-4 without him as the starter...When they switched to him, they eventually became AFC champs and even won their first playoff game against the Steelers - Again, this is a QB that can't pass for shit...
Yes, he is also religious. You'd often find him doing "The Tebow" - an act where he kneels down and prays...Became a huge thing last year.

If Rex Ryan is fired, then so is the Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum, who has given Sanchez such a huge contract...Sanchez will remain in NY next season as nobody will trade for him and his stupid contract. He's owed $8.25 million in guaranteed money next season. Nobody will take him - Cutting him would be more likely, and that would bring on a $17.1 million cap hit....not gonna happen - they're stuck with him.

As for Tebow, he will likely request a trade and the Jets are reportedly planning to part ways with him after the season anyway. If they can't deal away Tebow, their 3rd-string QB that they've pretty much held hostage all season, they'll grant him his release.

"All you can ask for, all you want is a chance -- a chance to go out and play the game you love and help this team win football games," he said. "That's all I wanted. I tried to make the most of every opportunity I had. I would've loved to have had more."

Yeah man I thought he looked really big for a QB. I think other teams just have him figured out now.. the guy is never going to pass. The worst part of that game was when Sanchez actually had a nice drive going, then they completely interrupted it with Tebow who went out in 3.

Well, I don't think you can write him off so quickly either though....You have to play a different style of football when you are going with him and that requires a whole new system - something the Jets never bothered to work on.

I don't see Tebow being successful at all in the CFL....CFL is a pass-heavy game compared to the NFL - with only 3 downs, I don't think he'd stand much of a chance....Moreover, their's no money in the CFL - he'd probably make more in the NFL being on the practice roster...

Say what you will about Tebow's skill as a passing QB and his super religious beliefs, but the guy has heart and leadership qualities and just finds ways to win despite lacking the traditional skills as a QB, BCS Champion, Heisman winner, all those 4th quarter comebacks last year, that OT win in the playoffs vs the Steelers, etc.. He even bulked up by adding 10-12lbs of muscle in the offseason to 250lbs when Sparano and Rex sold him on being a Jet and told him they would install special packages for him if he bulked up.

His future in the NFL as a starting QB is likely limited though, I can see maybe 1 or 2 teams willing take a gamble on him as a starter. If Tebow were willing to switch positions, I'd think he would make a really good fullback or TE
