The Giants Need it Most

At this point, no elite team needs home cooking more than New York.

ATL Needs a W

None of the above, it's Atlanta.

Peyton Manning: MVP?

After leading the Colts through a seven-game winning streak and back into the playoffs, has Peyton Manning locked up the MVP?

December 18th Winner: Samson151

Turner couldn't carry the burden Peterson does in Minnesota. He's not a home run back.

It's Peterson By a Half-Step

Both have been superb this season. But Peterson, right now, is the league MVP.

Running Back the Clock

If teams reverted back to the power running game, players like Peterson and Turner would see both an increase in their salaries and endorsements.

Burner Is the Fantasy Man

Not that you'd go wrong selecting either, but "Burner" Turner is the better choice by the slimmest of margins.

Yo, Adrian!

Unlike Turner, Peterson has the lateral movement, the speed and gets it done despite being the primary focus of every defense he faces.

Atlanta's Turner-round

You can't lose either way, so since it's a game of inches here, I'll go with Turner to cross the goal line first.

No Debating Peyton

Peyton Manning deserves to be start for many reasons, none of which has to do with him being one of the most recognized faces in the NFL.

Peyton's Place Is In

As long as he's not injured Manning deserves to go to the Pro Bowl every year.

Peyton's Body of Work

Why would you chose a 6-8 quarterback whose team won't even make the playoffs?

Who's Statistically Better?

Well... there are stats, and there are stats.

Big Blue Nightmare

The Giants are playing up to the level we'd expect in December -- mediocre.

Titans Are More Vulnerable

The Giants are still the Super Bowl favorite in the NFC. The Titans never were the Super Bowl favorite in the AFC, and still aren't.

Both Could Lose

Don't be surprised if the one-seeds have changed in both conferences by Sunday night.

Slaying the Giants

New York is on the verge of being mauled by Panthers. The damage could be too great for the defending champs to overcome in the playoffs.

December 16th Winner: delOH

Al Davis gets a free pass, he's not hitting on all eight. Jerry Jones hasn't won a post season game since Super Bowl XXX. Maybe the football gods are punishing him.

Snyder Has Failed

Snyder's unwillingness to bring in a true general manager and step aside is at the heart of everything that's rotten.

By David Aldridge | December 15, 2008; 10:18 AM ET | Comments (5)

Time to Own Up Guys

I can't decide if I'd sack Al Davis or Daniel Snyder first. So, I'm going to take a .5 sack on each and call it a day.
