This whole situation makes me nostalgic for the glory days of TJ Rubley and Tony Banks....

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Favre says he has memory issues, may be related to concussions sustained as a player:

Oh, the Cowboys score 17 points in the fourth quarter with the lead and still lose? I'm sure it's Romo's fault somehow. Seriously Monte Kiffin needs to go.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

That Lions/Cowboys game was awesome. That final drive was unbelievable.

I almost feel sorry for Dallas.

Almost...

The Browns kept it close in KC today, but the Chiefs are 8-0. That's crazy.

No that final drive was inevitable. I have seen it for the last ten years. If Romo gives them a lead in the fourth quarter it will always be blown. But he is a choke artist so that will be the narrative tomorrow morning.

8-0! Whoooo!

Though that was a painful game to follow. We really need to step up our offense. And that missed FG really turned the tide going into the second half.

I couldn't believe my eyes, that was amazing work by Stafford.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

It helps when you can throw to a receiver in double coverage and get away with it. Stafford is picking up some bad habits with Megatron out there. It bit him a couple of times yesterday with INT's but he threw a nice sideline ball to put his team within striking distance at the end. Amazing.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Well, I am really bummed. I had tonight's game circled on my calendar as a Big Game in the NFC West. The Rams beat Seattle in St. Louis last year, so I thought we'd have a decent chance. That of course was before the injury to Bradford.

At least we'll be witness to the glorious beginning of the Clemens-Era in Rams football...

You'd have a better chance if Roger Clemens was your QB...

Or Clarence Clemons, for that matter (God rest his soul).

His completion percentage was under 50% for the game. Certainly, the defense deserves a significant amount of the blame, but the quarterback always bares a disproportionate share of the blame in any loss.
