Likewise.

Im desperate to get a ticket for this game somehow.

WHat a day yesterday! Loved every minute of it despite having a dodgy gut this morning from one of the 2 burgers I consumed yesterday. AP is an absolute monster, definitely a life achievement seeing him break off a huge TD run like the Steelers D wasn't even on the field. Then to follow that up with 2 sacks from Jared Allan and a sack fumble to end the game.....Brilliant!

We bought the very reasonably priced season ticket...28 a game. BARGAIN! Can't wait for the 9ers game next month.

I second this.

Seeing Adrian Peterson in the flesh was really something; he is incredible.

His entrance pre game was fantastic; can you imagine the adrenalin rush you would get if you were in his shoes? Unbelievable!

Steelers are in trouble (No shit!); their OL is a mess, and their D is not up to much.

I thought Le'Veon Bell has some nice moments; certainly one to give them long term hope in the running game.

"Tough" decision in the coming weeks for the Vikings coach about the QB position. Never liked Matt Cassel but he done ok yesterday. :p

humpo 30-09-2013 03:51 PM

out of curiosity and not really being into NFL, why are they having regular season games in the UK?

Basically just to promote the game in Europe.

He's a better option than Ponder IMO.

The Steelers O line isn't great but IMO it's more down to Rapistberger wanting to hold on to the ball for so damn long....how many pump fakes do you need?? Get's rid of the ball quicker then there is no questions about the OL.

Biggest difference yesterday was he stepped up into the pocket & didn't panic, whereas Ponder has spent the majority of this season scrambling left or right when he feels under pressure.

I fully expect them to go back to Ponder & shock the fans, but I imagine he's done at the end of the season regardless. Hopefully Cassel does well enough this year so when they go & draft someone next year they can ease them in behind a veteran QB.

[QUOTE=Swanny32;11313577]pump fakes do you need?? [QUOTE]

There was one play where he pumped faked in a good 7-8 times.

Steeler fans around me seem to blame the lack of receiving options for the hesitation in Big Ben at the moment.

Am amazed by the Seahawks comeback, the O line had 3 starters missing and looked in loads of trouble, still a wins a win!

4-0 :lux:

Gronk and Amendola back soon :lux:

Surprised to see LeGarrette Blount at the Pats. Looked a beast in his first season at Tampa, but then fell off the radar. Will he be another of BB's successful waif and stray rehabilitations?

Houston blew that game like the Chargers and Titans blew it against the Texans.

Top 10 Pieces of Commentary From the Guardian’s Website Regarding the NFL Game in London That Prove We Really Need to Move There Stat

8. “I didn't have a clue about what was going on, despite the hype and punditry. Seemed to have more rules than rugby, with more stops and padding.”

5. “Several of the American press corp were grumbling about the food in the Wembley press box at half-time, and with good reason: non-descript pie and vaguely-spiced oven chips was all they got. Good job Wembley, reinforcing those cultural stereotypes about British grub ...” (This was followed by a comment about press box food in America: "I know of teams that have cookies, brownies, ice cream, popcorn, nachos [with molten cheese], and name-brand doughnuts in their press box." GODDAMN RIGHT!)

Nice to see Vikes with a win. 0-3 just looked freaky.

Hopefully!

When he's not tiptoeing around, he's effective, and once he gets going, he's hard to bring down.

With Vereen out, it's big that Bolden and Blount have stepped up to spell Ridley.

Not to mention Kenbrell Thompkins, man, what a catch on that deep ball.

Saw him a lot in his rookie season in the NFC south and as you say, once he got going he was virtually unstoppable. He single handedly destroyed the Panthers in one game. I couldn't believe he went undrafted, but then I guess the subsequent fall off might have explained that. If the Pats can harness that upside, he will be a MAJOR plus!

Hopefully of course, he'll fail miserably, and Tom Brady will become the reincarnation of Arizona Playoff and beyond Jake Delhomme.

It's the temptation to use two 'ds' that trips most NFL players up.

I don't know how old this article is, but it expands on the Longest Yard argument that was some pages back. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...es/longestyard I've still refused to watch the remake.
