No 100 yard rusher all year but then we do it today against the best run defense in the league which had allowed just ONE 100 yard rusher in 59 games!!

And looking like blowing a 10+ lead for the 4th time in 5 games.

And weirdest of all, they fail to score a TD in the final 58 minutes of the game yet manage to beat the red hot Steelers.

Go figure

Tonight in the first 10 minutes - 2 tackles and a sack of Roethlisberger.

Looks like losing Vilma through injury has been a blessing!!

And once again Harris has the most tackles in the game.

Just a mere 10 today

Redskins came so close. Campbell's performance was a major plus, though.

Watched the Cowboys beat the Redskins last night and the game lived up to the expectations. Even though I'm obviously pleased at a Cowboys win, I was very impressed with Jason Campbell and the Redskins battling. I admit we were not at our best and the awful snaps that Romo kept getting could have lost us the game. The pleasing thing was that we were pulling big plays from the bag and a fantastic 4 TDs for TO! It was tense right until the end and could have been a lot different if Campbell had not thrown that intercepted pass, but a great match all the same.

Bring on the Jets on Thursday night ... :p

Personally, I cannot see who is going to beat the Patriots at the moment after their demolition last night ... The Packers visit at to the Texas Stadium should be a cracker though ....

Hottest QB in the NFL? The Jets weren't paying the Pats...

I watched the Pats game last night and they had ANOTHER debate on running up the score.

Twice, the Pats went for it on 4th down instead of taking the field goal (once at 35-7 and once and 42-10, I think).

John Madden made a good point - surely TAKING the three points is running up the score while going for 4th down gives the defence another legitimate shot to stop them. The Bills ineptitude gave the Patriots points as well as the Pats taking them. If the defense can't make a play, then that's their fault.

The crowd were only booing as they were getting so outclassed.

I think the Pats had 8 drives and scored 7 TDs. The only one they didn't score on, Brady had already checked out and was laughing with Moss on the sideline.

Oh, and I'm praying the 49ers keep up their bad form so as the Pats get a top 3 pick next year... looking likely :D

I am a tool. Thats what happens when you post late at night.

jazman 19-11-2007 02:22 PM

I don't agree with this argument about running up the score at all. Surely teams should be allowed to play, and if the opponents aren't good enough then they will get battered. It's a sport and you play to the best you can and if that means thrashing someone then so be it. Can you imagine this happening in football? especially when it effects goal difference ....

The Jets moving up to 2-8 helps matters, drags 49ers down one more place to jt-3rd worst.

Obviously 49ers won't finish dead last as Miami have it in teh bag :D

Sorry, I didn't have my first coffee of the day until AFTER that post... :clown:

Besides, they weren't playing the Cowboys either... ;)

Taking a second pick (assuming Miami finish winless) would be great for the Pats considering they are losing their own first round pick (which would be at least 25 if they make the play-offs).

Go on Jets! Go on Rams! Even go on Oakland!

Strathclyde Eagle 19-11-2007 08:14 PM

Second picks following championships have a history of not working out well in New England. In fact I've got a hunch that Bill Simmons wrote about it somewhere.

Bingo:

I didn't see anything in that article about 2nd overall picks...

Strathclyde Eagle 20-11-2007 02:20 PM

Read the San Francisco paragraph and the parallels to 1986.

saxoneagle 20-11-2007 04:44 PM

Ah, gotcha!

It would be interesting though to see who the Pats would take (position wise) with a top 5 pick.

The usual top picks of WR, QB and RB would surely be overlooked by the Pats for a LB or Safety... I don't watch enough college football to know if there are any of them worthy of a top 5 pick!

Grim Reaper 20-11-2007 05:43 PM

Wahey, Miami are way out of top of the league.....for felony charges.

Very interesting....and very worrying that a sport that's so keen on being squeaky clean that so many of its participants can be crims

There has been some speculation about NE trading down and getting two picks because they're so good at getting late first round value. Would be quite ironic if in the year they're meant to forfeit a first round pick they end up with two!

The only safety I've heard mentioned in really glowing terms is Kenny Phillips from Miami, but I think it would be a reach for him to go #2. Time to find some updated mock drafts.
