I'd rather peak in the 2nd half of the season then have already peaked.

Pro Football Focus recently did an overall ranking of NFL QBs at what is basically the midpoint of this NFL season. Some teams have played eight games and some nine (like the Vikings, who finally have their bye this weekend), making this a good time to evaluate what has transpired so far at the most important position in sports. As such, the number that sticks out is 8. That is of course the jersey number of Vikings QB Kirk Cousins — and it is also his place in the rankings.

While that qualifies as a shade below elite, it puts him in a cluster of very good quarterbacks — one spot behind Tom Brady, two spots ahead of Carson Wentz, for example — and validates the eye test.

Cousins, Rodgers and Mahomes each have 18 big-time throws on passes of 20-plus air yards, but Cousins leads the trio in big-time throw percentage (48.6 percent) and ranks second among all quarterbacks in passer rating (136.5) on such throws.

Is it not possible to have Twin Peaks?

I still have this feeling that it'll be the Saints-Vikings in the NFC Championship Game one more time.

Why can't we ever play a garbage team like the Browns in the NFC Championship game?!?!?!? Why does it always have to be good teams?!

The Saints/Brees ruined Favre’s swan song season, it’d be only fair for the Vikings to return the favor.

Not going to find one of those a game away from the super bowl. I'm not sure the Vikes can beat the Rams or Saints this year.

We were all over the Saints until Theilen fumbled. The Rams lost Kupp for the season. That's a huge loss. Both teams are very beatable.
