Because it is rarely seen and the refs don't want to set a precedent for making it a risky game.

The Pats play also rarely involves contact with the ref, if ever. All it does is block the defenders eyesight for a split second and cause a gap between Wes and the defender to give the completion.

The Saints shut that play down against the Patriots by doubling Moss and Welker. I think Wes went 4 for 24 yards or something ridiculous like that. He got bashed off the line (in the 5yd contact zone) and then trailed on his routes. Simple but incredibly effective.

I'd love to trade Vick as well and bring in a shiny new QB with our third or fourth round draft pick.

Getting the 33rd pick from the Rams would be brilliant but Rams say they haven't spoken to us regarding McNabb.

I'm all of a sudden getting really excited about the next couple of weeks to see what comes of it all.

I reckon he'll become a Bills player, no idea why, just a feeling.

I'd love to see Vick at the Rams for a year. I think he and Steven Jackson could create a lesser version of Young/CJ2K

If it was illegal then surely it would be flagged ... I'm sure of it.

It's dangerous being a ref in this game then if that is how you are used by teams .. :D

Not anymore though!

Jaz, you have been a member of this site for a couple years more than me, July 04 you joined, September 06 I joined. How in the hell have you clocked up 52,000 posts!!! That's insane!

pauldrulez 25-03-2010 05:41 PM

I've clocked up 17500 posts in 2 years since I got a laptop (and lost a life). I had 800 posts at Xmas 2007 :D

Swanny32 25-03-2010 05:52 PM

Yeah but 17490 of those have been pointless! ;) Jaz more often than not actually has something worth reading.

I don't post half as much as I used to if I'm being honest. A lot of those were made up of posts on some of those silly game thread in CCG in my early days ... and yes, rather insane, and I don't get as much time at work to post like that either .. ;)

I thank you kind Sir, and that from an Eagles fan about a Cowboy I fell honoured ... we all know who the tool is in these here parts ... ;)

Swanny32 25-03-2010 06:15 PM

Yeah I probably should have ended that sentence with "apart from when he's yapping about the Cowgirls"

Strathclyde Eagle 25-03-2010 06:33 PM

Oh please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please... let the PTI story about Daunte Culpepper being the Bills starting QB be true. That would just be fantastic.

Strathclyde Eagle 25-03-2010 06:38 PM

Lombardi does a great job of destroying the McNabb to the Rams rumour:

Don't really agree with the idea of moving the umpire but as a fin fan, I don't care. Less holding calls for our runs heavy offense. Less pass int calls for our rookie secondary.

If this is true, at least the rest of the AFC East will have 2 nice wins next year :D
