    Redneck is a derogatory slang term used in reference to poor, uneducated white farmers, especially from the southern United States.It is similar in meaning to cracker (especially regarding Georgia and Florida), hillbilly (especially regarding Appalachia and the Ozarks), and white trash..

    Are you sure your not thinking of Redcoats??

    I would prefer Brady to just tear his ACL against Houston and decide that its not worth it and retire with his millions upon millions in the bank.

    That works too.

    Whatever it takes to get Belichick and Brady to go away. The last thing we need is for them to keep having fun, uncontested 12-4 seasons and keep trying to get that last ring for the next 5 years. Just let them have it already, force the issue.

    That game doesn't really have any relevance to either team, anymore. The Colts were coming off an incredible emotional roller coaster and had a let down that week going back on the road. The Jets played pretty well. Since then, the Jets crumbled, and the Colts rallied and became winners. The fact that the Jets beat them 12 weeks ago is about as meaningful as the whopping 72 yards that Mark Sanchez had during that game...

    Makes some sense I guess, but I think B and B are greedy Mofo's and even if the won another SB they would still keep coming back to win another and another and so on, so I say let somebody beat their brains in and disappoint them again...Screw them

    BB is a football troll. It's been his life since he was a child. He doesn't know anything else and will stick around for another 15-20 years without a doubt. BB ain't going anywhere. Brady will be gone long before BB.

    In order of preference:

    1. Seahawks
    2. Texans
    3. Redskins
    4. Falcons
    5. Ravens
    6. Colts
    7. Broncos
    8. 49ers
    9. Packers
    10. Pats

    If the SB involves 2 of #'s 7-10 (history suggests it will), I'm not watching the SB. I would like to see the Seahawks win it all but I hate the Giants so much, it's extremely tempting for me to root for the Skins today since I would love to see even more Giant fan tears.

    DEN, having had a couple surgeries on my neck myself similar to Peyton I feel a bit of the kinship. I guess it's the neck-aids kinship. I am flat out amazed he made it through the season and am definitely eating alot of crow on that one. Plus I just think the guy is the epitome of professionalism in the sport and deserves it.

    I was glad to see the Vikings lose because of their racist name. We Norwegians are real touchy about that. Also, my uncle Bill is highly, HIGHLY offended by that team up in Buffalo.

    I also hear that your uncle Bill is too drunk to notice the team in Buffalo.
