Re: Who's Ready for Some Football?

My sons varsity team:

They were playing lackluster all first half, we were trailing 14-7 at halftime. First drive of the second half we were driving the ball and our running back fumbles, the opposing team picks it up for an 80+ TD. Now we are down 21-7 and not looking good. With four minutes left in the third, my son caught a short three and out, puts a move on the defender and scampers in for six. We are down seven.

For most of fourth quarter both defenses made key plays. A punt to my son, and he runs it out to our 40, but a spot penalty puts us all the way back to our five yard line. So, we are down by seven points, there is 2:25 left on the clock and we are 95 yards away from a tie (two timeouts). We run a no-huddle quick offense and move the ball to the 22 yard line. A screen pass, to my son, he gets a great block from the WR, makes two juke moves takes off, turning on the afterburners with three defenders trailing. He scores and we are all tied up with 1:22 left on the clock. We kickoff and they get a great return with our poor tackling they are out to their own 45. They try to catch us off guard by running a draw play, they lose three. Quick back to the line, they run a screen. QB throws it low, bounces out of the receivers hand right into one of our LBs hands. Now, 52 seconds and we have about 40 yards to go for a win. No-huddle and some short passes and a roughing the passer penalty gets us down to the their nine yard line. We have 21 seconds with a first down and nine yards to win. First play and everyone is covered and QB throws it away. We now have 2nd down, 14 seconds and one timeout. Next play and our QB draws them offside. We are on the four yard line and we send out the field goal unit. It is on left hash mark and a difficult angle for our kicker. We call our final timeout and decide to go for it. First play goes nowhere (incomplete pass). Not many ticks left, QB connects with the WR in the corner of the end zone. Only four seconds left, we squib kick to one of their line guys who runs for about two yards before being brought down and 0:00 on the clock.

We came back from seven down with 2:25 to win by seven.

Honestly, I don't know what to say.

The Packers are on top 17 - 0 against the Cowboys. Rogers is just fantastic. Good luck. Hope they win.

Now 24-0 haha! i hope they win but this team doesnt instill confidence in me.

The steelers at least made the game respectable, it looked much uglier early on. Losing another qb didnt help at all. He didnt appear to get hit that hard but he was out like a light. Hopefully nothing more serious for him.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday

Sports analysts after the game were pretty quiet about it. They took him to the Hospital. His eyes were crossed when I saw him sit up. I think they are concerned and don't want to say anything. Ryan Shazier was worried. He was on the sidelines with the team. We'll see what happens. I hope he will be okay.

That back up from Stamford looked pretty good and yeah, they did make it look respectable. I don't think we can get into the playoffs this year.

Cowboys are trying to come back, but the Packers look better than what you seem to feel. You have a great running back. He's quick. I don't think they will lose. The Cowboys are making too many mistakes.

They're set to score again! They moved the ball right down the field, like they were just doing a job. Now Jones scored another. 4 rushing touchdowns. 31 - 3 with 3:30 in the 3rd. It's starting to look like a blowout.

Re: Who's Ready for Some Football?

Not a cowboys fan, but there is one whole Q left, too much can happen.

Cowboys are loaded on offense and defense, but there coaching sucks.

It's a good game. Cowboys are within ten points. Unbelievable penalties.

Held 'em to a field goal, @honcho.

Unless something nutty happens, congratulations. Great game. 4 - 1

I’m an Eagles fan so if both can lose, that would be fine by me.

This is why I dont have much faith in the packers, they always find a way to let the other team back into the game.

The refs and penalties are abysmal in this game for both teams. The nfl has to get the officiating straightened out because its becoming unwatchable.

They did say there would be lots of penalties this year with trying to protect players. The call on the Packers defense for roughing the QB was a bit over the top. Okay, I get it. The guy didn't try to slap his head and take him out.

Then, there was the one where the Packers lineman got to the QB and tackled him at the waist. They called him for a penalty because he slid down on the QBs legs, so it looked like something. Meanwhile, it was nothing. That lineman was dejected when he got to the sidelines. You could see him thinking, "What can we do"? That linebacker, 55 has got some knee issues. He was down 3 times.

I think Arb and Matthias better get the zebra suits out and start officiating these games.
