    100's I can believe. There's no way he has the arm strength to throw to the 200's or higher. :lol:

    Yeah, makes the "Tuck Rule" and the call against the Raiders years ago look just that much worse and even more puzzling, doesn't it -- I mean using your assessment.

    The Tuck Rule wasn't on anyone's mind that day, it had not been mentioned to the refs before the game, was ultra obscure, it was called in an extremely important game, and was called at the worst possible time in one of the most important games of the year. I'm not saying the Raiders didn't still a chance to win after the call was made, but the Raiders had the game won if that call doesn't get made.

    And to top it all off, the Tuck Rule has now been repealed by the league. Not saying you or any other Pats fans posting here are bitching about the call, you guys seem to have it in proper perspective, but the ones who are - including Bellichik - can take the day off (so they'll have enough time) to kiss all of my ass.

    Hopefully the Broncos will put an end to that in a few weeks. But first they need to figure out how to hold on to the damned ball.

    Some defense wouldn't hurt, either....

    According to ESPN, the Rams reached out to Brett Favre to see if he'd be interested in coming out of retirement at age 44. :lol:

    He declined.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
