Was that the interception one where his arm hit the ground and everyone just stood there looking baffled.

I think the Viking would have been strung up if he hadnt recovered that fumble

Looks like Brady left Miami and decided to fly to Cincy and start with the Jets.

At some point he'll wake up and remember he's Chad Pennington. :D

Worst trip South to date - Jan 98, Leeds at home. 2-0 down inside 15 minutes. :(

I disagree. The lead was 21, there were 10 minutes left, Cassell is obviously not up to it ... so the Pats could easily have gone three and out, Miami could then score in three minutes or so (prevent defence and all), crowd begin to get into it ...sure the Pats almost certainly still win but why put themselves in that situation? The last five minutes of a football game go on forever--I remember the Colts still in with a chance in the AFC Championship game in 2004 with a minute or so to go even though the Pats had completely owned Manning all game.

This way bang bang bang it's over.
If anything I thought the Pats eased up considerably and didn't embarrass Miami. Anyway a loss is a loss--Liverpool didn't ease up on us during the 9-0 (I know that goal difference is important and point differential is not, but still)

Makes sense. Obviously not ideal from their point of view to bring Brady back in.

Not sure about Cassell as a backup. The guy did nothing but hold a clipboard for all his time at USC as well!

By the way, the Fins crowd isn't an issue. Dolphin Stadium is like Selhurst when Wimbledon played there - apathetic home fans and the majority in attendance are supporting the visitors.

When you're 42-7 up at half-time and only score 49 I think you're right.

Even though I'm a Pats fan, I once again felt very sorry for Jason Taylor. No-one deserves to be on a good team more than him--he's an absolute beast, and he seems like a real gentleman too.

Chester 22-10-2007 12:27 AM

blocked field goal returned for a touchdown for the Cowboys

nookiebear 22-10-2007 12:30 AM

Very ugly win for the Skins.

Only 160 yards on Offense but that's what you get when almost all your starting Offensive Line is out injured.

What money on the Skins winning in New England next week? :D

elliott 22-10-2007 12:46 AM

lost my bet on "Pats by less than 15", just

Got a bet next week that Miami will score at least 25 points though

Interesting listening to WFAN this morning. One guy thinks it's ludicrous that the Giants have to go to Wembley yet Boomer Esiason (the co-host of the phone in) pointed out that in time difference terms it's not really any different to flying to Seattle or San Diego.

Time difference issues might be something to consider if the world games continue in future years. Might be unfair to have an East Coast team play in Europe against a West Coast team.

Interestingly the 49ers admitted to being 'done in' on the time difference yesterday v the Giants. For them it was like starting at 10am. I realise that there are many occasions a California team plays in the East but this was the first time I've heard comments admitting that the players struggled to adjust.

When the Wembley game was announced it was also proposed that all 32 teams would play abroad once over the next 16 years. Was that ever confirmed?

I heard that as well. I don't know if it was ever confirmed, but there seems to be an international movement afoot at the moment. Just last week the Bills requested permission to play both pre and regular season games in Toronto.

As for the East/West coast thing, I'd imagine that they'll probably send West coast teams to Japan for regular season games. I'd imagine that Japan and Germany are the next likely destinations for games outside of North America. Outside the US my guess is that only Toronto fits the bill for the NFL in Canada (maybe Vancouver, but I don't think the dome there has a huge capacity).

Okay, I admit I've watched CFL games on NASN.

Grim Reaper 22-10-2007 01:21 PM

Is Canadian Football still played to three downs?

Strathclyde Eagle 22-10-2007 01:40 PM

Yep. They've got a really stupid rule about not being within five yards of a punt returner as well. Everytime I catch a game it seems that Hamilton still haven't got the hang of that rule, it's quite amusing. :D

Former Bengals first round pick Akili Smith managed to get cut by Calgary last year. I think Tim Couch is trying to follow his ultimate career path.

Can't remember where I saw it over the weekend, but the Fins were apparently going to give Mike McMahon a tryout. Given that the last time I saw him he looked rotten for Toronto I think losing his number would be a better idea.

elliott 22-10-2007 02:37 PM

Ticats suck unfortunately.

And CFL kicks ass. It's a much more interesting version of football, admittedly made boring by the number of "2 and outs

"No yards" is a rule in CFL (as mentioned above), but you can't fair catch in CFL so that's kind of a trade off.

I've watched one of the funniest things ever in CFL:

Awesome game (Winnipeg v Edmonton this year, ends in a tie). About 32 all at the end, and they play college overtime (although modified slightly and very badly explained).
End of the first OT and it's 39 all so they play another go.
Edmonton have to hit a FG and miss, meaning any points for Winnipeg means a win.
At this point it may be wise to point out that if you punt the ball out of the endzone you get a point (single or rouge).
Winnipeg struggle too, and on their final down, they ridiculously attempt (and miss) a FG, despite the fact that if they had punted the ball, they would've won anyway!

That's another stupid rule as well! :)

Very strange game, made better by the fact that these guys get paid peanuts. Something kinda worthy about that.

Grim Reaper 22-10-2007 03:42 PM

That punt rule sounds crazy. You get a point for THAT???
