Apologies for going missing for last week's Straight Outta Stockton, let's just blame Norv Turner for that series of unfortunate events and let bygones be bygones, k? We're back this week though with your best tweets, quotes, and observations from Sunday featuring how Al Michaels really feels about Ed Hochuli, who took his time in delivering mass confusion to all of America last night.

Dan Patrick on the Ravens on Football Night In America- So much for those hand signals that Jim Caldwell was telling the Ravens Defense about to which Tony Dungy replies Yeah, too bad that Jim Couldn't play.
Kurt Warners on who should be the favorite in the NFC on NFL Gameday Morning- The Giants have the biggest ceiling. The problem is they just haven't been consistent enough to make them the favorite at this point in time.
Michael Lombardi on what a Washington Redskins win would do for Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan on 1st on the field- if Kyle Shanahan wins with a backup Quarterback (Kirk Cousins)- a backup Rookie Quarterback-He shows the rest of the NFL he is ready to be a head coach and take the next step.
What he has done with Robert Griffin III is remarkable,but we knew Griffin had talent.
If he does it with Cousins,then all of a sudden all those teams who are looking for a head coach soon are going to take notice.
Michael Irvin saying that the Seattle Seahawks at 8-5 and currently the #5 seed in the NFC Playoffs, will lose all of their final 3 games against the Buffalo Bills in Toronto, the San Francisco 49ers and Saint Louis Rams at home to end the season and miss the NFl Playoffs this year on the Thursday Night Football Pregame show on NFL Network last Thursday!
Cris Collinsworth- and Al we have the fastest paced team- the Patriots sacing the slowest paced team- the 49ers tonight and don't you think that the pace favors the 49ers talking about how long the game was lasting, because the game eventually did last 3:40!
Chris Berman during the Gamepicks segment on Monday Night Countdown tonight, i predict that the Jets will beat the Titans 19-15 tonight and that the game will have an odd score dosen't that sound about right???
Because hey the Raiders scored an odd amount of points yesterday and won their game!!!
Dick Stockton- With a Seahawks win today and a loss by the 49ers against the Patriots in New England tonight, there will be a tie for 1st place in the NFC West a few times, before correcting himself in the 4th quarter!
