2010 NFL Conference Championship Recaps



Packers 21, Bears 14

  • This game looked like it was going to be a 56-0 blowout. On Green Bay's first drive, Aaron Rodgers hit Greg Jennings on 22- and 26-yard passes. After a 6-yard run and a 6-yard completion to James Starks, Rodgers connected with Jordy Nelson for 22 yards. Two plays later, Rodgers ran into the end zone on a play-action bootleg. Bang. Game over.

    Well, not really. The Bears did a great job on Rodgers for the rest of the game. The Packers scored just one more offensive touchdown, and the Bears forced Rodgers into a red zone interception. Chicago had a chance to win at the end, but Mike Martz's moronic play-calling thwarted that effort.

  • Rodgers went 17-of-30 for 244 yards, one touchdown (rushing) and two picks (one of which wasn't his fault). He completed seven passes of 20-plus yards. However, the opposing quarterback was the bigger story.

    Jay Cutler was anemic in the first half, going 6-of-14 for 80 yards and an interception, as he constantly overthrew his receivers. Cutler suffered some sort of mysterious knee injury in the second quarter and took himself out of the contest. Despite Brian Urlacher calling him the P-word on the sidelines, Cutler refused to go back into the game.

    I'll have more on this in the power rankings, but Cutler is a major wuss. Philip Rivers played in the AFC Championship on a torn ACL a few years ago, yet Cutler couldn't go because of a little boo-boo? Are you kidding me?

    As this happened, forum member Ryguy commented, "Can't wait to hear what Cutler's injury is."

    Hyperborean quickly answered, "Sand in vagina."

  • After backup quarterback Todd "Tom" Collins embarrassed himself in the third quarter, third-stringer Caleb Hanie stepped in. This invigorated both the crowd and the forum:

    Cal Hanie time!!!!

    Good. They are putting Hanie in. They have a chance.

    Thank god, apparently Hanie is going in.

    Caleb Hanie!!!


    Hanie didn't disappoint, going 13-of-20 for 153 yards, one touchdown and two picks. He led two scoring drives and looked infinitely superior to Cutler. As mentioned, however, Martz screwed Hanie out of a legendary comeback with an awful end-around on a key third down on the final drive.

  • Some key performers: James Starks was very impressive, rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. He broke tackles all afternoon. Greg Jennings, meanwhile, hauled in eight balls for 130 yards.

    On defense, B.J. Raji had a pick-six. Sam Shields collected the other two Packer interceptions to go along with a sack and forced fumble.

    As for the Bears, Matt Forte had to do it all by himself for three quarters; he rushed for 70 yards on 17 attempts and caught 10 balls for 90 receiving yards.





    Steelers 24, Jets 19

  • I thought the strength of the Jets was supposed to be their defense. If they were going to lose, it was going to be on Mark Sanchez, right?

    I don't know what happened to New York's stop unit in the first half. Even though the defense held Ben Roethlisberger to 7-of-14 passing for 96 yards and an interception prior to intermission, it could not stop the Steelers. Rashard Mendenhall trampled the Jets for 121 yards on 27 carries. Isaac Redman, meanwhile, chipped in with 27 yards on just four attempts.

    Rex Ryan's defense showed no interest in tackling. It was pathetic. The Steelers actually had more points (24) by halftime than New York ran plays (22).

  • The Jets were better in the second half - perhaps because Maurkice Pouncey injured his ankle - allowing Mark Sanchez to nearly engineer a miraculous comeback. Sanchez went 20-of-33 for 233 yards and two touchdowns, but was ultimately betrayed by offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's slow and shoddy play-calling inside the red zone.

    I really have no idea why LaDainian Tomlinson got the ball on the most important play of the game. On 4th-and-goal at the 1-yard line of a 24-10 contest, Schottenheimer called for a Tomlinson carry. Tomlinson was predictably stuffed at the goal line. He gained just 16 yards on nine carries, while Shonn Greene generated 52 yards on the same amount of attempts. It's almost as if Todd Haley kidnapped Schottenheimer and took over the play-calling.

  • Having said all that, Sanchez shouldn't have been in that position to begin with. I can't get over how bad New York's defense was. As I wrote in the forums, "The Steelers haven't looked this good against any playoff team all year. I don't get it."

    The Jets simply didn't have an answer for Roethlisberger's scrambling. Big Ben's passing numbers were hardly impressive (10-of-19, 133 yards, 2 INTs), but he evaded enough pass rushers in the backfield and picked up a few key first downs (and a touchdown) to keep the ball out of Sanchez's hands.

    QuotesChimp comparison chart is not intended to be a valid comparison of the companies that sell auto insurance in your area. It is an illustration only. Do not use it to determine which company you should give your busi�ness to. Beyond that, it is important to note that the comparative rating levels of the companies vis-a-vis one another will vary from locale to locale. The company that is the lowest in one area may not have the lowest rate in a different area, since companies determine their territories and other underwriting factors differently. As an illustration, Wawanesa, which had the lowest hy�pothetical rate in this example in Alhambra, had the third-lowest rate based on the same hypothetical situ�ation in Berkeley, California.

    Punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish wrongdoers who intentionally engage in despicable misconduct. Sometimes punitive damages are also awarded for gross negligence, which can be defined as negligence so horrible that Quotes Chimp deserves punishment. Punitive damages are rarely an issue in auto accident cases, and car insurance policies usually will not pay for awards of punitive damages. Thus, we will not discuss them further here, although they will be covered in Chapter 42.

    When an insurance Quotes Chimp investigates a case, it sometimes really investigates. Often, this includes reviewing your past med�ical records and other relevant material. You may be asked to sign authorizations for the company to obtain such documen�tation, which you must do unless you have valid grounds for denying the request (such as being asked to divulge personal information that has nothing to do with your claim).

    Competitive. Insurance rates should be competitive vis-a-vis other insurance QuotesChimp selling similar lines of insurance. Otherwise, no customers will come knocking on the company's door.

    With the exception of QuotesChimp health insurance obtained through work, most people buy their insurance directly. But who sells it and under what circumstances? Let's take a look.

    Sufficient. The rates must be sufficient to pay the QuotesChimp's anticipated losses from claims and the overhead expenses. No state insurance department will permit any insurance company to set its basic rates so low as to result in its insolvency (see Post 39).

    Deductibles and payment options. Unlike some other aspects of auto insurance, the collision protection of the QuotesChimp is subject to a deductible (the amount you pay before any insurance benefits kick in). Most deductibles are around $200 but you can elect to have a higher or lower amount. The higher the deductible, the lower the premium.

    Sometimes Quotes Chimp are dishonest by keeping quiet. Since an in�surance contract is a contract of utmost good faith, failure to reveal a matter material to the underwriting decision of the insurance company may again be grounds for loss of benefits. For example, if you know that a forest fire is heading toward your house, you can't call a property insurance agent, get an agreement for immediate coverage (see "Where Does Coverage Begin?" below), and expect to collect benefits when your house burns down. That just wouldn't be cricket.

    The Maryland QuotesChimp Fund. The state of Maryland has a state-funded insurance company for those who cannot otherwise obtain insurance. The policy is administered by the state but private insurers are required to subsidize losses from the fund, for which they can be recouped by their own policyholders.

    QuotesChimp is absolutely essential that you understand what is excluded under your insurance policies. Otherwise, you may end up with a loss for which you mistakenly thought there was a remedy within the policy.

    Important info. Additional significant QuotesChimp will be contained by the announcements site. In a car insurance it'll determine the precise automobile(s) included in the policy contract. In home insurance plan, the tackle of the covered house will soon be established. As may the sum of the premium, when there is an allowable, the sum of money will soon be recored. Something the announcements site isn't going to listing is exceptiones. Exceptiones are issuees specially perhaps not a part of protection. This really is just one reason if you should be to really comprehend your coverage you should look past the proclamations site.

    The key word to remember about insurance is statistics. The QuotesChimp breathes, eats, and bleeds statistics. Minutiae that would cure the worst case of insomnia for us, such as the number of people who have had a home fire in a given town over the last 50 years due to smoking in bed, is the stuff of which dreams are made to the dedicated insurance executive in charge of fig�uring out what to charge for insurance.

    If QuotesChimp will purchase a brand new vehicle, it is really a great thought to get in touch with your insurance provider to find out which vehicles possess the cheapest prices. As published from the Insurance Start for Community Security still, you can receive losing information on nearly 200 makes as well as types of autos. Create with their book section at Watergate, 600, Package 300, Wa, DC 20037, should you be fascinated.

    The likelihood that a loss will occur. The higher the probability that an incident will occur that will create a loss your insurance QuotesChimp will have to pay for, the greater the risk to the company and, thus, the higher the premium. (Higher risk equals higher premiums.) For example, if you have three drunk-driving convictions in the last four months, your auto insurer will believe, with justification, that your likelihood of getting into an accident and in�curring a loss is very high. As a result of their in�creased risk of loss, you will incur higher premiums. Conversely, if your driving record is spotless, your premiums should go down with the insurance com�pany's reduced risk.

    Move the threat. Shifting a threat signifies setting the aftereffects of a threat on yet another QuotesChimp or thing. Many threats themselves are unable to be actually moved you can't offer your genetic science to another person or cause them to become just take your invest a medical facility but you really can move the monetary ramifications of threat through buying policy contract.
