- Russell Wilson is no Aaron Rodgers when it comes to 4th quarter winning TD drives
- Russell Wilson lost only his 2nd game at home as a pro. This stat means nothing. Even Matty Ice had a similarly enviable home record his first couple of seasons.

I've only used iPhones since 2008 - iPhone 3G->4->5. Part of the reason was that my wife was on Android and wasn't ready to switch to iPhone. I didn't want us to be all tied down by one ecosystem, so I stuck with Apple. However I convinced my wife to finally switch to the iPhone 6 (swype keyboard on...

They keep throwing this stat around. But if there is a team that has the chance to be in the 12%, it is the Saints. They are only 1 game behind SF and Seattle, arguably the two best teams in the conference. The Saints just need to look at this as a 14 game season and play to the best of their abilit...
