Since when is an NFL game delayed due to rain? I have never ever seen a football game delayed for something so stupid. I mean they have played in blizzards for Gawsh sake.

Is anyone else *trying* to watch this game?

If someone slipped and sprained a knee then they could not go to there sponsors commercial shoot and then the NFL would fall apart. This is one of the reasons I stopped watching football, that and Jerry Rice left.

Oh and dont forget no helmet to helmet contact, no contact at the knees....I get that is a good idea for school kids, but these are adults, and this is FOOTBALL!

The fat cats got to protect there multimillion dollar investments, I bet if you made a league were there was a league wide salary cap that was closer to normal peoples wages and provided free health care to the players for life during and after for them and there immediate family's, we would get to watch a real game finally, this present NFL is disgraceful. Oh yeah NO ENDORSEMENTS

This game I can see why its delayed. I do see player complaining frequently after games that was windy/rainy so they couldn't play their best. I love seeing player slide all over the field. Up the entertainment for me. I wouldn't be surprised if they do start delaying games due to simple rainstorms.

This game has gone from a contact sport to a step above flag footbal.

Adrian Peterson said playing football and the amount they get paid is equal to slavery. LOL.

Football is turning into a joke.

This may very well be the last year I watch any football. I'll be checking out the NFL website to see how fines are racked up.

And before I forget.

GO! PACK! GO! To bad there isn't a icon for eating brats as well.

Bunch of candyasses.

I played college ball for Jimmy Keeling. He looked like Patton to me. Tough old fart. No matter what the weather was, it was "football weather". 110 degrees in Abilene during August? Then we need 3 a day workouts instead of 2 a days. Don't want to miss that good football weather, do we?

My high school coach had a few colorful phrases. One of the less colorful ones that is relevant here....when you were laying there suffering from having your bell rung, you would hear him sing at you, "Get up, get up, you're killing the grass"

These players? They came from the generation where everyone got the green participants ribbon.

I say this in complete honesty: if you want to watch the most physical, roughest football on television, watch Lingerie Football League. I don't like skinny chicks, so i'm not watching for that. Its just the best and most physical football on tv anymore.
