Watching New Orleans against the Carolina Panthers. Orleans just taken a 7-3 lead ...

Forget the B- comment

It's now an F!!!

FOUR Skins fumbles in a half - one of the worst ever first half performances I've ever seen

Grim Reaper 25-11-2007 09:26 PM

A+ for Eli

In spite of a severe attack of clownitis he managed 272 yards and won me the bet.

Giants fans will be remembering this as the worst QB showing of this millennium and yet in terms of final yards he did pretty good.

Crazy sport at times.

Props to Boomer Esiason for his spot on analysis of how Eli would be throwing it 40+ times.

Gotta laugh.

Some poor sap bet 200 at 1.01 (i.e. to win 2) on the Tennessee v Cincy game ending over 46 points when teh scorebard showed 35-12 with 6 or 7 minutes to go.....


















...only for the play to be reversed, Tennessee failed to convert the 4th & 1 and then neither team scored in the final 6 minutes!!!

Unbelievable

Ouch re the above.

I'm glad some people are daft enough to still kick to Devin Hester. :)

Strathclyde Eagle 25-11-2007 11:11 PM

Wet turf causing a few turnovers in Chicago.

BTW brief footage from KC appeared to show the field was fine, so I think all the idiots can stop blaming the NFL for us losing to Croatia.

Strathclyde Eagle 25-11-2007 11:27 PM

Cedric Benson on the sidelines, wearing a tracksuit and hobbling with the assistance of crutches.

Officially, "his return is questionable". :D

Strathclyde Eagle 25-11-2007 11:36 PM

Nick Halling's going to go nuts against Todd Sauerbrun. This could be good. :D

Hester's just unbelievable.

Strathclyde Eagle 26-11-2007 12:00 AM

Two incredible catches by Scheffler for Denver in that last drive.

Two of his kicks returned for six, another blocked, can't kick for a touchback from just the 45. :clown:

Chester 26-11-2007 12:35 AM

This should be an interesting replay

Strathclyde Eagle 26-11-2007 12:51 AM

Incredible game. Bears win in OT.

Strathclyde Eagle 26-11-2007 01:40 AM

Philly tie the Pats. :lux:

Of course Brady hasn't been on the field yet (Pats scored on an INT return).

CFL Grey Cup just had footage of the replay booth, watching footage of themselves watching themselves. :D

Strathclyde Eagle 26-11-2007 02:12 AM

One of the teams in the Grey Cup final has intentionally conceded three safeties. :eek:

Strange game.

You'll probably find that from the 45 he wasn't going for the touchback. Why allow Chitago to start from the 20 when a good high kick should enable you to pin them down inside the 20 or even 10.

Going for touchback in that situation is unnecessary.

That said, it's better than conceding a TD!!

Benzhiyi 26-11-2007 12:08 PM

I disagree, Grim. You ALWAYS kick for a touchback or squib (and you always punt oob) when it's Hester waiting to run it back at you. Simple.

A Sunday without a Dolphins defeat! Truly beautiful. :lux:

(I know. Don't say it.)

saxoneagle 26-11-2007 12:44 PM

Phew, the Pats got out of jail yesterday. Until the last 4 mins, we couldn't do anything to stop the Eagles offense ticking up the yards while Moss was permanently wrapped up on the offensive side of the ball.

Good game Philly but the unbeaten streak goes on! Here's to the first team in the play-offs :D

He only squibbed it to about the 25!

(To clarify, it was a kick-off, not a punt.)

If I'm playing the Bears in that position I'm blasting it through the end zone. Hester can't return it from the stands.
