LLCOOLSTEVE 05-02-2007 02:02 AM

Could it prove to be a costly FG miss on the stroke of half time?

SB XXII (like I said!) - Ricky Nattiel.

Is Sophie Blake pregnant? Without definite knowledge I can't do my favourite joke with the Mrs.

Just doing some HT research on Google News. Lots of reports saying that Hester was 30-1 to be the first touchdown scorer.

A question for all you real NFL fans, do all the fans on the pitch during the half time show actually pay just to be on the pitch at HT? And am I the only one really not at all bothered by Prince?!

My PC's nowhere near the TV and I was posting during half-time. You're not alone in that. :)

Have no idea about the fans on the pitch. I'd guess they have to pay something, but really I'm not sure.

They're not getting any pressure on Manning. Obviously they're not NEVER going to blitz, but as you can see they're bringing the backers/safeties up to the line, then they're all dropping off (almost every time.) Exactly what I said (which wasn't hard to predict as it's exactly what Lovie said they would do...stick to what got them there in the first place.) And it's not working. That said, the Colts OL is outstanding and I'm not sure if it would have much impact even if they changed to a more aggressive system which they will have to at some point if it stays like this. The Colts may succeed in beating themselves but it is hard to see the Bears beating them on the evidence thus far.

The one pity is that -- either way -- the weather may determine who wins this game. It really has defined things so far.

What's with all the Christian shit!

Makes me lose a lot of respect for these guys when they come out with that crap!

Strathclyde Eagle 05-02-2007 04:29 AM

Dungy's been known for that for years. He was the same in the worst of times (his son's suicide), why not let him be the same now?

Don't think Manning should have been the MVP. Should have been Addai or Bob Sanders IMO.

Agree with the MPV... Addai for me too.

As for Dungy... I appreciate what he's been through, and what a great accomplishment the job he has done, both as a player, coach and human being. I also appreciate the significance of the fact that both coaches were African American, but...... If this truly is a "World Championship" and we all know this was being shown all over the World I find it distasteful that someone credits being a Christian for the fact they won (The Colts owner also mentioned it!). This should not have been an issue on a World stage.

I'm sorry... it's a personal pet peeve of mine.

First off...
:sob: :sob: :sob:

Secondly, congrats to Peyton. He deserves it. One of the best ever.
As for MVP, if the Colts won, all he had to do was show up to win it.

I'm going to watch the Super Bowl Shuffle, and cry myself to sleep.

I won't make a prediction, but the main players will be....Addai for the Colts.

LL Cool Steve: I don't think anyone -- including me -- doubted the AFC was the better league. I merely underlined the point that over the season, the Bears had given the AFC teams they played a run for their money (which they had.) If you want an insightful prediction, though, let me refer to what I wrote above just before the game.

All in all, well done the Colts. They thoroughly deserved to win and when you take out the first 14 seconds of the game, let's face it, the Bears got gubbed. The real MVPs were the Colts offensive line -- absolutely awesome. Anderson and Ogunleye in particuar were totally neutralised, Manning really wasn't pressured all day, and as a result playing well (which he did) wasn't even difficult given how much time he had. Addai also contributed heavily to that by keeping the Bears backers honest. No excuses; this was the Colts time.

The Bears should not be downhearted. This is a very young side that had a very poor record when Lovie arrived two years ago. Since then, they've made the playoffs twice taking significant strides forward and this year, as an obviously unfinished project, they still won the NFC Championship. If they can address some obvious areas of weakness and if Rex either sorts himself out or they find a franchise QB they have the potential to go up another level and be at the top of the game for years to come. Like I said, though, well done Colts. This was their day.

Guys, do you know where I can get my hands on a Panthers Jersey!? I keep trying on the NFL shop but 1 I don't have one of the four credit cards they accept, and 2 when I try to use the paypal option it keeps saying that it's not working and to try again later! :(

nookiebear 05-02-2007 11:32 AM

Addai should have been MVP

Latvian Eagle 05-02-2007 12:00 PM

Strath cheers for ya pm by the way! Checked it out. All out of Panthers jerseys in my size! :( I checked a few other teams and they don't have the same probs! Might try the NFL site at home. It might just be the dodgy connection at work.

Latvian Eagle 05-02-2007 12:01 PM

Grossman should have been the MVP... For the Colts! :eek:
