NFL Week 16 – Spring & The Prince’s Results

Happy Yule, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Merry Kwanzaa

There were a few heartbreaker losses this past week. Namely Indianapolis and Minnesota. The Vikings fought hard to win their Monday night game, and it looked like they might have it wrapped up in OT. But it wasn’t to be. The decision to sit the starters in Indianapolis will be talked about for years and just may bring about some rule changes in the league as well. I can understanding sitting the starters before the playoffs, but I think the Coach is dead wrong that 16-0 is not a historic goal. Stupid, just plain stupid. Then you can talk about the fans, the money they spent on tickets to see a game and see their team win and continue their undefeated streak. Big picture is one thing, but so is having a mental focus and belief that “we’re the greatest team of all time and will not lose”. I think sitting those starters and losing the undefeated record will have a bigger mental affect on the team in their last game than those coaches are giving credit to.

I don’t want to talk about my Titans or Redskins. sniff sniff. But kudos to the Panthers for taking the Giants down.  Good Job!
