--The Bucs/Eagles game had a lot of similarities between the
bears/cardinals game last week That kick was
The Eagles rallied from being down all game with offense, then lost on a 62 yard freak FG. The Cardinals on MNF had the game totally in hand and then lost to the Bears on special teams and turnovers. Where is the similarity there? In one case the Eagles rallied with offense but still lost, in the other the Cardinals had the game stripped from them on freak defensive plays.
In the game? I'll tell you -- Another huge mismatch in statistics, another game where the defensive makes up the majority of the scoring for the winning team, another game where the team with high offensive stats loses to the team with hardly any, another game where a rare skill play (yes, a 62 yard field goals are as rare as kick returns-- actually more rare) decides the win. The flow of the game WAS different but there was still much similarity between the 2 games. Bet I could find more similarities if you're feeling deep today Dressel?

'Super bowl wins a part of' HW- 1 TO- 0 and...justifiably, who will have more fans OR who will be more hated in the end regardless of stats?
On another note, I watched Marvin Harrison score a couple more TD's yesterday - no fancy end zone celebration as usual(ala JR)..he doesn't have to draw attention or respect to himself, he's earned it by his play. Really classy and modest..I like it. Some veterans in the league after several years still feel they need to do this...Q: 'what's he gonna do next?(in the end zone)' A: I don't give a ****
--I also noticed the league is starting to crack down on excessive TD celebrations in the end zone this year. The call against Randel Ell(did I spell it wrong Jesse?) was like the 3rd or 4th one I've seen this year already..and those guys are doing things that I've seen for years. 'unsportsman-like conduct in the end zone' are they gonna rename the rule after players?-- can think of 4 or 5. but really 2 who don't get enough attention at home."You still didn't reply to my last post."
:'(I didn't know it was required
..sorry to neglect you for that
but there were no Q's in there..and, I didn't feel baited either so = no reply.
Yes, I am pleased he is hurt..I know it is recoverable. I also know alot of folks who smile or have a sigh of relief when the the 'other' teams important guy gets(not critically) hurt(potentially helping their team to win)..actually, you can see it at stadiums ect in all team sports. The difference between me and them is that I will say it and admit it. You can paint it how you want I could care less.
People get hurt all the time in a contact sport like football. Just because someone gets hit hard and doesn't break a bone doesn't mean it didn't hurt like hell for them..and..yet amazingly, Dressel, folks cheer when their favorites defensive players makes a huge hit. People get hit hard and fans cheer--what an amazing point you have discovered Dressel!It's the business of it. Football is a rough game and there are fans of offense and defense.
The offensive fans never point out a punishing block do they
? Now, when a player kicks a player in the head or otherwise cheats (see Sapp's career changing face mask on Jerry Rice) I don't condone that--most folks would not of course.
I guess what I'm, saying is that, yeah if
I only watched football to see great, no contact, walking into the end zone untouched-type-plays then I would be a like-to-see-no-one-hurt-type of Fan. I don't think that exists if you truly love football..unless you like FLAG football
