A) Kobe scores 81 in regular season game vs Raptors
B) LeBron scores 29 of the Cavs' last 30 in double OT playoff win at Detroit
B easily for me

8-7-1 Packers get to host the 49ers in a playoff game, and yet they still pick above the Niners in the draft. That doesn't seem right at all does it?...

God was walking through the Garden of Eden, when he saw Adam reclined under a tree.
"Hey God" says Adam. "Eve and I just discovered the most amazing thing which we call sex".
"That's wonderful" replies God. "Where is Eve now?"
"Oh, she is cleaning herself up in the river" says Adam.

Your city deserves it after losing the Sonics. That was some dumb shite right there.
Russell Wilson is a great guy and I'll be rooting for him in the future. Marshawn Lynch and Earl Thomas as well. Always liked those guys.
Not a fan of Carroll and Sherman but w/e.
Congrats on a great season...

In a league full of Shermans, Newtons, Kaepernicks and Crabtrees, I don't see how people can actually be rooting against Peyton in the Super Bowl unless it's because:
1) You're a Seahawks fan
2) Your team is rivals with the Broncos
3) You're one of those stupid Brady blowhards who knows it ...

The 49ers have reached the NFC title game 3 years in a row and have 0 titles to show for it. They were probably the best team in the NFL the last two seasons, and were up there in 2011.
What are some other great yet disappointing runs by teams that you can remember?
USC during the Carroll yea...

Every time Peyton Manning loses a playoff game, you know the drill...
But why is it that he's the only one that gets so much criticism?
Aaron Rodgers has not been very good in the playoffs other than 2010.
Drew Brees has been awesome at home, but has had struggles in playoff road games.

Green Bay is 8-7-1 and yet, they are making the playoffs over 10-6 Arizona and get to host 12-4 San Francisco in a playoff game. This is a Packer team that doesn't have a single player on the Pro Bowl roster and yet their division is enough of a joke that they are hosting a playoff game.

I hate this argument. Bama fans love to use it to justify their 2011 NC that they didn't deserve, and surely will use it again this year should OSU and FSU fall (unlikely but it could happen). They will say "we barely lost to a top 5 team on the road blah blah blah..."
