How the Seahawks stayed on their feet and survived the Cowboys after the floggings they took from the Jaguars and Rams earlier tells you they’re genetically incapable of going down easy. Earl Thomas basically handed out his resume last week, and they still pulled out the win. They’ll never respect themselves, though, if they let Drew Stanton kill their playoff hopes now. Meanwhile, give a big hand to Larry Fitzgerald, in case this is the last we see of him.
The bizarre seasons for the Ravens (who can clinch a wild card) and Bengals (who look like they’re waiting for the sweet embrace of death) began against each other in Cincinnati, in the first of the Ravens’ three shutouts this season.

Sean McDermott should spend the entire offseason and all of next season with “I started Nathan Peterman one time and it cost me the playoffs” tattooed on his forehead. Pretending that was a wise move because Tyrod Taylor didn’t look enough like Peyton Manning isn’t enough to negate the effects of that decision. This could be the final scene of the Adam Gase-Jay Cutler marriage. Supposedly, Cutler was the best they could do at the time. Yeah, just no one else out there.
That was only the second weirdest shot in Spurs vs. Knicks, though: Manu Ginobili accidentally scored a three on a lob, only the refs didn’t notice because it looked so weird and Beasley took off in a fast break when he corralled the ball.
More evidence that Rich Cho is the most interesting general manager NFL Jerseys From China in the NBA. I’m trying to imagine conversations between Cho and his boss, Michael Jordan, about Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap the food blog, though. “So like, you go order some soup and then write about it?” “… Yeah.”
Speaking of interesting GMs, this is a good Dave McMenamin profile of the Cavs’ personnel boss Koby Altman.
