I doubt Brees will be concerned with this game when he delivers his Hall of Fame enshrinement speech. tongue.gif

Hey is it me or is it in every game that Gresham either fumbles the ball or get a 15 yard penalty for something stupid? I do like the fact that Special Teams final woke up and stopped using Tate - Adam Jones is a huge upgrade! We've always had talent, we just never use it. Hawkins was really good but we didn't use him that much and now he's kicking butt in Cleveland. Now we have Sanzenbacher who catches the ball and goes across the middle but I never see him in the game! Why?

Something else that pissed me off Thursday night. We're down by 21 points and there didn't seem to be a sense of urgency. Our back would get a yard or two or our wide out would catch a short pass, then spike the ball, pound their chest like they did some thing great then just walk back to the line of scrimmage or huddle like they had all year long. No discipline what so ever. Put the rock done where you got tackled and all 11 players jog back to the line of scrimmage and get ready to run the next play. Act like you want to score and win the flippin game.

Oh and another thing that just killed me Thursday night. it's 3rd and long, and what do we do, try to run the ball up the middle with our 3rd string RB. It's like we just gave up on the series. Why don't we just punt the ball on 3rd down coaches?

Oh and another thing that ticks me off, why are we calling time out so early in games now? Let me stop before I have a dang heart attack.

Interesting question whether Brees is a hall of famer. I think you can argue both sides. Great regular season QB with a few outstanding years, but so-so in the postseason. Does have a ring tho. Probably gets in but not a slam dunk.

How many QBS with rings have NOT made it in besides McMahon, Dilfer, and Johnson?

Simms and Hostetler come to mind immediately. I don't think Doug Williams is either.

I would have guessed Simms to be in over Doug Williams. Surprised Simms isn't in.

Wow that's 6. More than I thought.

Wow the Saints are going to be tough for the bengals defense.

Brees, Ingram, and Graham going to be tough to stop

Only good thing it's not a prime time game

Best defense is always a good offense. Run the ball, control the clock, keep Brees and company on the sideline.

20-6 Jets ball 7 minutes left.

I don't know what's funnier, the Steelers losing to the Jets or Baltimore winning but staying in last place.

So I went over to the Saints board to see what their fans are saying. Apparently the Saints suck and Drew Brees needs to be benched.

The AFC North. The smoke and mirrors division.

Bad news for Cardinals fans. The curse of the Carson Palmer contract extension has struck. Again. Looks to be a serious knee injury. Terrible.

I feel bad for Carson and hopefully it's not as bad as it looked. I don't really miss Palmer here, but I miss his 2005 down the field throwing, and I want that here again. Wishful thinking I guess. Get well Carson.

Just saw the play and he was barely touched. He just planted on the leg and the knee went out. Usually that kind of non contact stuff isn't good.

Early word on Palmer is a torn ACL. He'll have tests to confirm, but it sounds like he's done for the year. Tough, tough break.
