  • You used the word "cute" in a football article?! That goes against the unofficial rules of gridiron reporting. According to those rules on page 77, paragraph 7, subsection A & B, "the word 'cute' can only be put into a football related article under the following conditions: a) when referring to a female cheerleader; b) when referring to a pee wee player.

  • "Cute" can never, ever, ever be used when referring a in high school, college or professional football.

  • What are you talking about? "Cute" was obviously used in a mocking tone. To call Rivers cute is to demean him. That's quite all right.

    It's right up there with me calling Tom Brady a pretty boy, which he is.

  • Just don't use cute in reference to any linemen or defensive players. They'll come to your house and hurt you.

  • I'm not sure I understand the title of your post. Has the "man" in Manning been missing? Someone please explain to me how Jessica Simpson aided the Giants? Does anyone actually think that had Romo locked himself in the basement for two weeks the Cowboys would have won?

    Rivers is a brat. That much was obvious during the game, and I loved Dierdorf's comment.

    Wally, Brady may be a pretty boy, but he is still the best QB in the League. I'm definitely no Patriots fan, but you have to give the man his due. It is scary what he has done with the weapons he was given at WR. Weapons that Manning has had his entire career. I like Dungy, Manning, and the Colts better than their NE counterparts, but Brady is still the best QB in the League; pretty-boy or not.
