    Won't happen but I really want FSU to drop out of the top 4. They don't look anywhere near a top 4 team.

    Ohio, Baylor and TCU all look miles better than them.

    I think I'd rather they stayed in so Bama can totally embarrass them in the playoffs.

    They should really have made this an 8-team playoff.



    And then, later today... Philly-Seattle. My mate's a Philly fan so we're watching it together an if they win I don't think I'll be able to look him in the eye for a while! If the 'Hawks win though, man, that's big. I can see us winning out if we can make a statement win today.

    Like the rest of the US, I wanted Tech to win. But, who do you put in instead of FSU? Ohio State lost to the ACC bottom dwellers. Yeah, they have shown progress since..but I'm really not convinced about Ohio State, TCU or Baylor to put them ahead of FSU. I don't necessarily like FSU, but to give them the boot is just laughable. They are undefeated, and have a few impressive wins. I'm a believer in the strength of the SEC as the best conference, but there are quality teams in the ACC too. FSU most certainly pass the eyeball test. I think they play down to their opponents, but come they 4th quarter they find a way to win. The should have lost to Clemson, Notre Dame, Louisville, Miami, Boston College, Florida and Georgia Tech. But they didn't. They stepped up...big time. They should be #3. Bama and Oregon should be #1 and #2 respectively. TCU should be #4...but the Big XII will be penalized for not having a conference game. A conference which has the motto. "One True Champion"....has uh....two co-champions. Ohio State still have that terrible loss to VA Tech; some pretty impressive wins, but the B1G is garbage. They would be crushed by Bama, Oregon and FSU. The Big XII is only slightly better, but only because they are currently ranked, and still won, TCU should have done enough to get in. If, after winning a championship, FSU get booted in favor of TCU/Baylor and Ohio State...well it would be an absolute sham and would ruin the CFB Playoff.

    And also, Jimbo "I can talk at 350 words per minute" Fisher would go absolutely crazy. That would be an epic rant.

    Bama should beat them. But FSU are zombies...so.....yeah....Unkilla ble. But if Bama are #1, Oregon #2, FSU #3 and ??? #4, then that would be a pretty good final game. And Mariota against Jameis would be epic.

    Why do Sky have Colts v Browns on?! Surely you pick Steelers v Bengals out of the 18:00s. I'm watching the Jags on an interesting looking stream. I have not missed the big pharma adverts. Blah blah blah you may bleed to death.

    An the Saints went in my acca today. That brawl, and the score are not cool.

    DJ Swearinger was already a tool. He's now even more of a tool.

    Knew picking the Vikings D off waivers was a good idea (with the Bills playing Denver). 2 INTs, 2 fumble recoveries and 3 sacks already and it's not even half time.

    The Jags just can't beat the Texans with no defensive turnovers. 2nd half was awful.

    That's what I'm talking about, if I lose this match up now I'm going to be upset.

    Man, Philly shutting down the run game and Russell Wilson picks a wonderful time to step up and play. Been a good day for the receivers too!

    Hot damn do the Saints blow. They made a woeful Panthers look like juggernauts on offense.

    49ers the fall of Kaepernick continues.

    Manning also didn't throw a TD pass CJ has been a huge find.

    Both offenses stink right now. Defense has been good for both teams.

    Well...that was a weird game. It was funny that the NBC commentators were talking McDaniels as a potential head coach...no...no way...nada...zero..no potatoes...is that happening. Hell would freeze over first. He was a terrible head coach of the Broncos. He's an okay, but not great, offensive coordinator.

    Seriously...if the Jets fire Rex Ryan and get him....he'll set them back another 10 years...and put them into the dark ages....which is especially bad considering the situation they are in at the moment. And I just hope the Broncos can keep hold of Adam Gase....I'm not liking all of our coordinators getting poached for head coaching positions....looking at you, Mike McCoy.

    And, I'm pretty pleased with the decision to cut Burse (hopefully he'll land on the practise squad) and get McManus back as the kickoff specialist. The Bills also have three kickers, so the Broncos are not the only team...but it is rare. I like it. The issues on kickoff coverage have hopefully been resolved...no point giving Brady or Rodgers two free, fresh sets of downs, and have having them start from the 40 each time...and it's good to see touch back after touch back....Barth can do up to the 55 yard attempts...so I'm pretty good with that. And although they are much maligned in Broncos Country....Andre Caldwell and Britton Colquitt stepped up big time today....hopefully they can keep it going moving forward.

    McDaniels is an awful coach. I actually want him hired by someone cause then the Patriots would finally be rid of his predictable play calling.

    The defense however looks awesome. Jamie Collins looks a budding star.

    Mind you...as offensive co-ordinator with Brady, it must be incredibly hard to screw up. Brady's making him look better than he is in executing his plays, and changing them up at the line of scrimmage. Similar situation with Gase and Peyton, really. McDaniels is a bit more valuable I guess, because of his links to the Bill Belichek coaching tree...I guess. As a head coach...goodness gracious that would be terrible.

    CJ Anderson also wasn't drafted. He's pretty much Knowshon Moreno without the injuries. And credit to Juwan Thompson as well.

    Unlike most of the fans on Mile High Report...Peyton did enough for the win. They scored no points on the two INTs. He made some good completions deep, and got the Broncos deep into the red zone where they were able to run CJ. Cj has also been the best fantasy back over the past few weeks.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JULIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Why did you have to be injured on that last drive!!! 6 points. So close!! Gah. Or that's the foot down on that 33 yard nearly-TD.

    I'm fed up of losing in this league. Please be ready to burn the old men of that Steelers secondary! My playoff dreams depend on it!!
