Stop Whatever You're Doing, And Watch This Sad Drunk Lady Cry About The Packers Loss - Barry Petchesky
I can't. I can't even do this. Thank you Giants, and thank you Internet, and thank you Megan for being a better cameraperson than friend.

Walkthrough: Change the Subject - Mike Tanier
Instead of talking about that, we can talk about Paul Lowe. Only three undrafted running backs in history have rushed for over 100 yards in a playoff game: Arian Foster, Ryan Grant, and Paul Lowe. The first two you might remember. Lowe was arguably the best running back in AFL history.

Who made a move up draft boards Tuesday?

Talent at corner and offensive line stand out Monday.

Drop Rate 2011: Which receivers are dropping the ball? - Khaled Elsaved
No formula like this is perfect but it does add to the debate. Drops in and of themselves are not completely comparable, with some drops being worse than others. As ever we would point towards our PFF grades for a more definitive picture that takes these factors into account, but it’s interesting to take a statistic like this and you can see the results for yourself; some guys are players you can rely on more, and others aren’t to be trusted. That’s not to say guys who didn’t drop the ball this year won’t drop it next or vice versa.

Eric Weddle Named to Pro Football Weekly All-NFL Team - Ernie Padaon
We have not had a safety of this caliber since Rodney Harrison left. I will not put Weddle in the Harrison level yet, but he is becoming a big-time playmaker and has a nose for the football.

Another chapter in the books for Nick Novak - Darren Feeney
The journeyman finally returned to the NFL in 2011 with his hometown San Diego Chargers. Novak made 27-of-34 field goals after replacing an injured Nate Kaeding.

Kaeding expects to be healthy in 2012 - Darren Feeney
Nate Kaeding injured his knee on the first kickoff of the season and did not play the rest of the year. He expects to be kicking again by the end of January.

Where do AFC West tight ends stand? - Bill Williamson
Antonio Gates is one of the best tight ends the NFL has ever seen. He has been dealing with injuries the past few seasons and he is likely on the back nine of his career. Still, he will be an impact player in the immediate future. Watch for San Diego to look for an eventual replacement fairly soon.
