Hour One on The Jay Mariotti Show: December 16, 2013:
NFL
– One outstanding team, Seattle, and a lot of skittish teams in limbo
– Failed opportunities by Dallas, Philly, NE, Cincy, New Orleans

COWBOYS
– Somebody should be fired. This collapse was that ugly.
– Romo, Cowboys officially biggest joke in league, blow huge halftime lead
– Surest bet in league: They will self-destruct in December
– Do not defend Romo … two INTS, last 3 minutes
– Checked out of run on second INT
– Cowboys didn’t run at end, on in 2nd half, when could bleed clock
– Murray was gaining seven per carry all day
– How throw 48 times when lead 26-3, 29-10, 36-24 in second half?

– Defense continues to be god-awful
– Jones, ultimately the problem, won’t talk Garrett, blames media
– Packers win without Rodgers, get him back this week?
– Lacy, big-time RB
– Flynn bails them out again

EAGLES
– Would have locked down NFC East, but defense gagged again in Minnesota
– No Adrian Peterson, Gerhart, lost to Matts Cassell and Asiata. Ugh.

DOLPHINS-PATRIOTS
– After all the tumult, Dolphins positioned for playoffs
– Give Philbin credit for settling ship, amid bullying probe
– Brady’s latest comeback bid foiled
– Can’t win on road in playoffs, 20 ppg
– Cursed afterward, left early, missed Gronkowski red zone, frystrated

BENGALS
– Had chance to get No. 2 seed, typically flopped

SAINTS
– Aren’t same team on road, have to go to Carolina
– Average 33 at home, 18 on road
– May end up with No. 5 seed, on road
– Brees 3 picks, 2 in first two series, numbers way down on road

PANTHERS
– Host Saints next week, say they’re better
– Win next two, get No. 2 seed

BEARS
– Cutler was right call, though started slowly with two INTs
– Reports of division in locker room, Glazer is Urlacher buddy
– Cutler future still up in air, won’t franchise-tag him

REDSKINS
– Cousins, three turnovers vs. Atl defense with 5 rookies

– Huge game, although more mediocrity
– D-Day for Jim Schwartz, job future, after Chi and GB wins
– Baltimore has struggled on road, 1-4
– Calvin Johnson, 28, called “old” by Matt Elam, 22. Dumb.
