    I'm seeing a lot of criticism and not many solutions

    I'd be in favour of just calling it "The Gap Game."

    (As in, the gap between the Conference Championships and the Super Bowl.)

    Hell, we could even get GAP to sponsor it, net us guys some drinking money for Sunday.

    Anyone else hitting up a bar to watch it?
    Luckily, my student union bar is showing it. Burgers and hotdogs availible from 9pm too WOO!

    If the AFC defense would be persuaded to take this somewhere near seriously, then it might be a half-decent game. Still, no blitzing? From what I've seen so far, seems like there's a no sacks rule either.

    Pro bowl is always terrible lol. I only ever watch the highlights just to see the big plays, but overall, no one cares.

    I don't like the pro-bowl. it's a cool idea but it fails cuz nobody wants to get injured, which is fair enough.

    I don't bet on the SB, no point, the odds are so short either way.

    Oh yeah, occasionally worth a punt on something outlandish just in case it comes off. Though odds are usually near enough the same either way - more than 25 pts at 10/11, less than 25 pts at 10/11. And so on.

    Best odds are usually to be found on first scorer and missed field goal. I like betting on who wins each quarter though and it pays out pretty well.

    After a discussion with my friend today, I was just wondering who you guys would rather have as your quarterback, and why?

    Joe Flacco or Eli Manning?

    I'm gonna be biased and say Flacco.
    I believe he can easily lead the Ravens for the next 5+ years, and probably earn a ring. Whereas Manning had the most interceptions this year, which isn't exactly great.
    Opinions guys?

    Eli Manning. Majority of Flaccos passes are check downs. He lacks the arm to throw a good bomb or rather, lacks the confidence to do it often. Blitz Flacco well and he makes bad decisions. One is a Superbowl MVP Pro-bowl quarterback, the other one isn’t.

    I'll take Manning, bigger arm, better leader, willing to take risks.

    Flacco has pretty much the best WR corp available to any QB, and a *****in' RB, AND an awesome defence.

    'Ain't won much.

    Not all his fault, and I think he'll be good in the future, but I'll take Manning this time.

    I would take Flacco. Manning is a pick horse. Flacco is good for the future. Preferably I would have neither though...
