They'd have to get rid of one of their backs first. Jones and Barber are already splitting carries.

That said, I don't know how long they have left on their contracts...

McFadden from Arkansas, didn't Jerry Jones go to Uni there? Might make sense of that, although if I were them I'd stick with Barber and upgrade their defence.

Colts beat the Jagwires last night to stay unbeaten.

Inside Sport feature on the Dolphins wasn't too bad. Shame to hear Ronnie Brown talking about coming over for business prior to getting injured. :(

Nice to see Huizenga actually show his face in public for a change as well.

Watched that by accident. Looked quite good really.

Surely it's Jag-WAAAHS!

Surely this is gonna be a rout.

Given that for many people in this country their first full live match they saw was Superbowl XX when Chicago won 46-10, then the first full live match IN ENGLAND could easily be the same sort of outcome.

No Brown = even easier than before.

Would prefer it if MIami was 1-6 though. Just worried their only win will be the 'irony' of winning abroad

Given I've just seen about 10 of the Dolphins having a fry-up in a Portugese caff in Vauxhall, that could explain a lot about their results! Classy bunch.

I don't think offensive linemen and defensive tackles get those bellies on gym work alone, Bob.

Four words: The Eli Manning Face.

Plus we're getting to mid-season, the time of last year when Jason Taylor started winning game single-handledly.

I seem to have two handfuls of straws. :(

Lots of praise going to the Giants new DC. Seems a bit out of place given how the players supposedly hate Tom Coughlin.

:confused:

I thought both teams were arriving in London on Friday morning?

On another travel note another Chargers home game could be in jeopardy due to the forest fires in Southern California. I like the way that the NFL still considers playing a game when half a million people are being evacuated from their homes, and only something as major as 9/11 gets games cancelled. :rolleyes:

More importantly :)

How the hell do the Redskins go about stopping the Patriots on Sunday? :)

I have confidence in the defense to at least slow Brady, et al down, but the Skins offense isn't that good at staying on the field...

Sneak Champ Bailey back into a Redskins jersey?

nookiebear 24-10-2007 12:59 PM

That'd be a start. Put Brady under pressure would help

Get the Skins' offense to convert some third downs in the second half would be handy as well

Streaks
The Redskins have beaten the Patriots six straight times to take a 6-1 overall series lead. :)

Ah yes, the streak. Worked well for Philly as they took on the Jets with a 7-0 franchise historical record two weeks ago and they duly won.

So how is it the Jets played the Bungles with a 5-0 streak and got turned over (depsite leading 23-10 in the 3rd!!!)??? :bash: :bash:

btw Philly are 9-0 under Andy Reid when coming off the bye week

Because they are who we thought they were. :D

Any chance that he doesn't get the opportunity to make it 10-0? Reid could be on the hot seat at this rate.

Men against boys. Colts were always in control of that one.

I've just looked at my first few mock drafts for next season.

The first one suggested we'd pick Glenn Dorsey (DL) from LSU with the number one pick (logical).

The second suggested we'd pick Brian Brohm (QB) from Louisville with the number two pick (hmm, not sure - plus they picked the Rams to have the top pick).

The last one suggested we'd take Matt Ryan (QB) from Boston College. Then again, they had Atlanta picking first and Kansas City fourth - I guess they haven't updated lately!

I personally think the Falcons (i.e. Petrino) will do anything to get Brohm. When we're confirmed as the number one pick I'd suggest taking Atlanta's first this year and next year plus DeAngelo Hall for the pick.

Strathclyde Eagle 25-10-2007 03:09 PM

Marvin Allen can do the same as Jason Allen after the season's end, i.e. leave Miami. :veryangry

What is it with people living in Croydon going to America and saying they support Arsenal? Luol Deng has done the same thing. :(

Just got this from nfluk

A surprise last opportunity has come up to purchase tickets for Sunday’s regular season game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants at Wembley Stadium on October 28th.


With just three days to go before kick-off of this historic event some tickets have come up following returns by the New York Giants players. For every NFL game standard policy is that players are given the right to buy a number of tickets each, and have until the Wednesday prior to the fixture to submit their requests. Now that the numbers of tickets needed to satisfy the Giants player requests are known we are able to free additional tickets to sell to fans.


I guess the thought of seeing Osi, Plaxico, Amani, Eli (it's like an African roll call!) and co. ripping Miami apart just wasn't enough of a draw to override the fact the GBP/USD exchange rate will kill visiting yanks in the pocket!!
