IT'S GAME TIME! Yeah, we are getting excited down here in the Sunshine State. We'll be headed up to Jholeville this afternoon to annoy the locals. In the meantime, we'll content ourselves with links we stole off of some nice guys open wifi connection. If I knew where he was, I'd pay him because he's made my week a lot easier.
FO looks at two second year running backs. Question: why haven't the Patriots gotten KILLED for whiffing on Addai and Jones-Drew? They drafted an inferior injury prone RB, and no one says, geeze guys, bad pick? Because the pundits LOVED the move at the time (Simmons practically hyper-ventilated to say the Colts choked by not moving up in the draft to take him).
Kravitz was funny today. I think one of the weird developments in broadcasting has been the moronization of Tony Kornheiser. He is a smart, funny guy. His radio show was brilliant (ESPN radio has not recovered from losing it). I even like PTI, but Tony is really bad on MNF. It's all shtick. I never feel like he believes what he's saying. I think it must be the production or something, but he is not working.
Vic thinks this game IS the future of the franchise. Ayyy, what a dark future...
A couple of thoughts on the weekend: For crap's sake Cleveland, why don't you just put a bow on that game and give it away. And for everyone who killed Lou for yanking Zambrano, meet Eric Wedge and Jake Westbrook. THE BIGGEST MISTAKE MANAGERS MAKE IS LEAVING STARTERS IN TOO LONG. Happens all the time. What part of Westbrook's last start made Wedge think he was good for seven innings?
The Dolphins are ungodly bad. They had Moss double covered, and would just trip over themselves in the endzone. I watched that game thinking, geeze, this team is horrible a lot more than I thought about NE being good.
Watching the end of the Titans/Texans as told to me by the guys in the CBS studio was bizarre. By league rule, they couldn't show more than 4:15 of the game. That clock ran out with almost 2 minutes left. I spent the rest of the game watching them tell me what was happening, then showing replays. It was a great game, but a bizarre way to watch it. If any can find tape or a clip of this, let me know. It has to be seen to be believed.
Finally, a win tonight not only puts us basically 3 up on the division but 2 up on every team not named New England in the AFC. ARRRGH! We have to win this game!
