Many teams are still vying for a playoff position but the one that means the most to me is my hometown Bears, who happens to be playing against the Texas for their playoff lives.
Chicago couldn’t have asked for Minnesota to face a team more capable of ensuring that it would continue to play on Sundays; the NY Giants play every game as if it were their last and they will be sure to do the same today. That very strategy led the Giants to last year Super Bowl, why stray from a successful formula? You remember what the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air once said: “If it ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it.”
The Gaints will be sure to take Will’s advice serioiusly. There is also the long-shot possibility of both Dallas and Tampa Bay taking losses against Philadelphia and Oakland, respectively.
The rest is up to Chicago.
I’ll be back with the final verdict.
Tony Romo’s broken pinkie finger has been all the rage.
Brett Farve has made phone calls to the ailing quarterback, hell, David Letterman even brought up Romo’s status on the Late Show. Farve may have talked Romo into it. The iron man with a consecutive-games-started streak of 259 games has no doubt seen his share of injuries, and played through them all.
Romo informed coaches on Wednesday that he is ready to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, according to ESPN.com’s Matt Mosley. Jerry Jones followed up with radio comments saying that Romo could very well play on Sunday.
Although much has been made of this injury, football is a brutal game and injuries are inevitable. There is a 100 percent chance of injury in a football career, so Romo will not be the only player nursing an injury on Sunday. With that said, the injury incurred in the first play in overtime against the Cardinals is somewhat serious for a quarterback.
I’m a nerd so I’ve actually thrown a ball and payed attention to the use of my pinkie, and the finger serves as a guiding tool for the ball. So this may affect Romo’s play more than expected if he suits up on Sunday. If he will play is yet to be seen.
Last night, amid the MLB playoffs was more Adam Jones news. The “Pac Man” apparently is no longer eating up the football for the Dallas Cowboys after being indefinitely suspended Tuesday by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, but he is eating up plenty of airtime.
Jones at a Dallas Cowboys Practice
NFL live has spent several nights discussing his drunken brawl with the security guard that was hired to protect him, and now more unfolds in the Jones saga — Rehab. The league has required Jones to enlist in alcohol treatment at an undisclosed location.
Jones confidant Deion Sanders, former Cowboys cornerback, is helping Jones try in the process of being reinstated, a process Jones knows well after being exiled from the Tennessee Titans and being reinstated just before the 2008 football season with strict stipulation from Goodell. Jones will be able to apply for reinstatement after missing four games.
