Your L.A. NFL Week 15 TV schedule: In a Perfect NFL world, the NFL Net would control things … and it does

i-c28c2e762d4b3709ac1d851838d43158-200906_11_perfection.jpg

The latest from ESPN’s “NFL Live” show, because you can’t get any better up to the second information on the league, unless you have Internet access. Or the NFL Network. Or some of those other blogs out there are pretty good.

“The Colts still won’t say if they’re going to try for a perfect 16-0,” said ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols.

The implication: There could be a time, either in Week 15, 16 or 17, where the currently 13-0 Colts simply give up and stop trying.

Whatever happens, the NFL Network will know first. It has the Colts’ game Thursday.

It also has the 13-0 New Orleans Saints’ game Saturday against Dallas.

How perfect is that for the NFL Net?

“(Colts) coach Jim Caldwell has told players they are going for 14-0,” Nichols continued in that sing-song voice. “There will be no healthy starters sitting (against Jacksonville) … no punches pulled.”

That must be a relief for the NFL. One team tanks it, the others just fall in line.

Pretty soon, you’ve got a bunch of 0-13 teams saying they are going to try for a perfect 0-16.

If only Detroit hadn’t stumbled onto two wins this season. The Lions would be a perfect … you do the math.

    Do you want more interesting?
    NEW YORK (AP) Brett Favre and Peyton Manning already were Pro Bowl regulars when they were selected to this season’s game Tuesday.
    Favre was among eight Minnesota Vikings who made the NFC team, while Manning was one of six Indianapolis Colts on the AFC squad. It will be Favre’s 11th Pro Bowl and the 10th for Manning. No other quarterbacks have been to 10 all-star games and go to the nfl shop.
    Favre will be a backup to New Orleans’ Drew Brees, the NFL’s top-rated passer. The other NFC quarterback will be Aaron Rodgers, who replaced Favre in Green Bay last year.
    Tennessee running back Chris Johnson, the league’s leading rusher, also made the AFC team, along with NFL receptions leader Wes Welker of New England. Manning will be backed up at quarterback by New England’s Tom Brady and San Diego’s Philip Rivers.

    this is the only nfl blog i found on his site….so even it does not pertain to the above, can’t wait to share my top-ten:
    And nowthe TOP-TEN reasons why the RAMS need new ownership/management:

    10. James Laurinaitis (Rams linebacker) statement: Everyone here kind of has a sour taste in their mouth. You hate losing, hate losing.
    9. The current owner seems to have no passion for the game and no knowledge as to how to run a (winning) team.obviously he does a good job at losing.
    8. BORING!!!!
    7. I-I5, and no, Im not talking about the interstate
    6. Stupid is as stupid does—theres less and lesser of a team left to sell
    5. Coach Spagnuotos statement: I dont want us to get used to losing., ( did I mention I-I5?)
    4. The fish always stinks from the head down
    3. Newspapers are actually skipping the Rams entirely in their weekly scores listing. A Freudian slip? I dont think so.
    2. R.A.M.S. currently stands for Really Awful Management Strategiesneeds to be replaced by: Return Awesome Mega-winners Soon

    and the #1 reason the RAMS need new ownership and management

    1. Their REAL name is the Los Angeles Rams
