  • Starting McNair over O'Donnell was a mistake. I could see last week that McNair's legs were totally wasted, and frankly I'm surprised Fisher started him.

    I think "toughing it out" has gone way overboard in the NFL. Hell, if you or I have a sprained ankle in one leg and a pulled hamstring in another, we're both getting around in wheelchairs, not playing football for crying out loud.

They won their last four games of the season at home giving up a total of 13 points. 3.25 points per game. And they scored 82 points in those games.
