300 yards per game x 16 games = 4,800 yards / year

How does Manning have over 4,900 yards if the team has under 4,800? Did a backup QB come in and throw for NEGATIVE 150 yards? Do yards lost via sacks or kneel downs count against the team but NOT against the QB?
That equals...you having too much time on your hands.

If Tebow beats the Steelers today, I will post a pic of me Tebow'ing in one of my Pittsburgh jerseys.

Going for it on 4th down doesn't look so bad for the Falcons now since they at least got 2 points plus the ball back.

Does Atlanta have a D or are the Giants just not playing?

Good call by the refs. Obvious intentional grounding...suck it Eli!!

Both.

Abraham obviously needs to be doubled at this point, but Bradshaw, Jacobs, and the o-line look like they're sleepwalking.

It's ok. Simple mathematics isn't your thing. No need to be jealous.

I love how the first points had come from a safety.

This must be one of those games where the Giants "didn't show up". I don't think it matters who wins this game since neither of these teams are capable of a Super Bowl run.

That's a good point.
Still the last game I always remember it being the biggest one.
The Tebow thing I guess.

Wtf was that atl? Ryan doesn't run out of bounds and they don't take a time out? Horrible clock management there.

Andy Reid time management by the Falcons before the half. Seriously.
Gumpish even.

I don't think it would have made a difference, but that was a piss poor perfomance by the refs. I counted 4 obvious holding calls that went ignored or were missed. The Saints received favorable spots everytime they were near the first down marker as well.

Brees and Stafford are both native Texans - lots of good football comes out of this state.
Saints are just the best...they don't hold!

It would be hard to look worse than the Falcons offense today.
