Yo Gabe here, the first time I played Madden was at a friend's house [I] didn't understand it and was not into football much. But as I hung out with him more I learned more about football. I was able to understand madden alot better. So since then I've played Madden. Madden is all cool and everything but it also has some let downs. When you do a play half of the team is still stand'n around. Still understandable EA is not Advanced enough to be able to make the whole field come to life and they have to keep the price down for people that can't afford them anyway! Right. In Madden you can't do laterals, plus, John Madden is the announcer which really to say the least stinks. Another thing the ratings on the Maddens are not the most accurate things in the world! That's not all but who wants to sit here listen'n to me whine, on to some stuff I like about madden. The truck stick (Hit stick) are nice especially when you are hav'n a bad day on Madden, its like your little cheat stick ;) NFL superstar is pretty cool but I think that they could do a lot better don't take me wrong they did a good job I just think they could do a lot better then they are, make it worth the money you spend on it (overall: ok). One of the questions I get is why I think Madden is the best game out there (Well, Call Of Duty is pretty good). I tell 'em Dude its a football game. Ya know Madden really is the best game, we all complain about it - but we all love it. If you don't got one, go get one! NOW!!

eligible players among the semifinalists. The Hall of Fame’s Board of Selectors chose the 25 finalists from the recently announced list of 133 reliminary
nominees. The results of the modern-era reduction vote to 15 finalists will be announced in early January."

UPDATE: 17-10 Raiders, can you believe it? Raider have the on our 30 when the 4th quarter starts. We need to get the ball back.
UPDATE: It's now 10-10, after Peyton Hillis ran it in on 4th down great game - got to go, watching...
It's now 3-0 Raiders, we stopped them 3 times on the goal line, but we called a time out just before their 3rd down play from the 2, and they got another chance and failed, then got a chip shot.

Right now the NFL has 4 teams, the Giants leading the NFC, being chased by the Cards, the Titian's who are 10-0, and the Bretts. (Jets). And and then theirs all those Bubble teams. The Jets are playing the Titian's, and the G-Men are playing Arizona. And the common idea is the two teams that win are the two Super Bowl teams. But let's not write off the other Division leaders and bubble teams, we've all too soon forgot'n that the Giants did not win their division, but were just a Wild Card team. Here's how the playoffs look:Image courtesy of Shutdown Corner (Y! sports blog)
I for the most part agree with MJD's idea of what the PlayOffs will look like, seen above. Except one team. The Redskins. Both Atlanta and Dallas are better and one of them will get that Wild Card spot.

The Falcons were 4-0 at home coming into the game, and the Broncos were coming off a road win. Peyton Hillis really showed up at tailback scoring 2 TD's and Jay added another score with a pass to Dan Graham. Matt Prater's field goal was our other score. Michael Tuner "BURNED" us twice, but only had about 80 rush yards. Matt Ryan was okay, but he was picked off by our highest paid player (this year) Dre' Bly.
It was a good game, and going home to face Oakland next week should be fun as well...

Elam was drafted by the Broncos in 1993, and the rest is history. He was "Mr. Clutch" since the day he was born. He's owns (well he's tied for) the longest field goal in NFL history - 63 yards. The 3-time pro-bowler as owns 2 Super Bowl rings. This year is 19-21 filed goals for Atlanta. He has made 414 field goals, 623 extra points, and 76 touch backs. Denver will never see a kicker like him again.
On the other hand, Matt was not always a "Clutch" kicker as he is already often referred to now. Prater *Pray-ter* not *Pratter* entered the NFL in 2006, the Lions got him as a collage free agent. He made it all the way through training camp, but then was waived on August 28th. In 2007 he entered the season with the Dolphins, but then was cut. Then he was off to Atlanta, where he was 1-2. Atlanta waived him, then he was back to Miami, only now on the practice squad. Then on December 19th the Broncos got their hands on him. And made him the kick-off guy. This past off-season Jason left, and the Broncos called on Matt. This season he has made 16-of-19 fields. He is 5-5 on field goals 50 yards or longer. And he leads the NFL with 17 kick-offs going for touch backs. He had HUGE shoes to fill, and he filled 'em.
