Not for nothing but Mendenhall was going to receive the veteran's minimum this year (700K) if he decided to play. Makes me wonder if he would've gotten a bigger contract would he still feel the same?

Well, it's the end of one of their seasons, so... Paging BornIcon to the white courtesy phone.

/picks up phone

Hello...? Hey what up?! Of course I'm still here!!

When you look at both of their stats with 15 games under their belts, they're surprisingly similar and both teams are 8-7.

Romo: 3828 yards 31 TD 10 Int 63.9 Comp %

Rivers: 4249 yards 29 TD 10 Int 69.7 Comp %

Verdict? Rivers is at least still fighting for a playoff spot.

And so are the Cowboys.

As for Romo, he has a slight (or slim) chance of playing after getting an epidural shot to the back today but the effects of the shot won't be known until about 2-3 days. He could also play depending on if the disc is hitting the motor nerve or just extremely painful. If it's hitting the motor nerve then he is definitely out.

Only having won five Super Bowls must be so hard.

I try not to live in the past.

I don't understand why Dallas ran so little in the fourth quarter...

I brought that up when Dallas lost to Denver 51-48 a few weeks ago.

This has been an on-going theme with the Cowboys and I'm getting sick of it! All they had to do was run the ball considering DeMarco Murray was averaging 8 yards per carry and let the Packers burn their timeouts. To unnecessarily keep chucking the ball was such a mistake that I knew when they abandoned the run that they were going to lose.

No criminal charges for Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston

The problem is that no matter what it's a grim situation all the way around. Either the girl is lying and Winston' reputation won't ever be the same or she was raped and someone got away with it.

No criminal charges for Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston

So since no charges are being filed, does this mean that Winston is now the outright choice of winning the Heisman?

However, unless I'm completely off base that doesn't mean that the girl wasn't still raped.

This whole scenario is terrible for the young lady that was assaulted. If she was in fact raped, there needs to be some further investigation to find her assailant.

Romo Throws for 506 Yards in 51-48 Loss to Denver

I don't think the Dallas O-line did a bad job Sunday. Romo was sacked four times

But it could've been more if not for Romo's Whodini act.

That was one of the most amazing NFL games I've ever seen

That it most definitely was. Great game. Bad ending.

And they need to run the ball more. They gave the ball to DeMarco Murray 12 times!!

Romo Throws for 506 Yards in 51-48 Loss to Denver

The pick was a bad decision brought on by the pressure up the middle, about the only pressure the Broncos got all game.

Romo had pressure all game long. That O line is brutal and had Romo scrambling for his life but kept he making some absolutely beautiful passes.

Dallas had Denver on the ropes but the Broncos showed why they are the best team in the league. They keep winning.
