Saturday on the couch

Just a few things I noted:

*Why do we like ESPN's Jay Bilas? One reason is doesn't pull punches. Speaking at halftime of the North Carolina-N.C. State game, Bilas said of the getting-blown-out Wolfpack: "I have not seen a performance as embarrassing as that all year."

*This didn't exactly pan out, but in the early part of the Packers-Seahawks game, Fox's Daryl Johnston said of the Packers: "They seem a little bit overwhelmed by the situation."

*On Green Bay's first touchdown, Tony Siragusa produced an excellent observation by pointing out that the Packers' offensive line was blocking as if it were a run, but the nod that passed between Brett Favre and Greg Jennings left the two of them as the only Packers who knew it was going to be a pass.

*CBS used the Freeze Cam just twice during the Patriots-Jaguars game, but each time it gave you a great look at the quarterback's options. On the first use, it showed that Tom Brady had nowhere else to go but that small window that produced a touchdown to Ben Watson.
