So the Giants just had one of the epic season ending collapses in recent memory, and now on to the Steelers. So far, it has been a good weekend for away teams. We need to stop that trend.
*** Update **
7-7 after the 1st quarter. I hear our offense is going to suit up for the second quarter.
*** Update #2 ***
The way Jackson went all out for that catch was a thing of beauty, but I think it is pretty clearly going to get called back because he trapped it. Still was a marvelous effort.
*** Update #3 ***
14-10. I have been fortified by a root beer and a grilled reuben, and am ready for the second half.
*** Update #4***
I have never seen a team hold the ball the entire quarter, which is essentially what the Steelers just did. At least I don’t remember it ever happening. I do remember some monster eight minute plus drives to start the third quarter in some of our better years, but I don’t remember anything like this, even though it was set up by some pretty atypical stuff- three ten yard plus third down conversions, tipped interception, muffed punt, etc.
Maybe I should eat Reubens at the half more often.
*** Update #5 ***
If we are going to give billions to the car companies to bail them out after they have built gas guzzling cars for too long and then get killed during a gas crisis, is it too much to ask that they not have Howie Long on my tv every five minutes calling everyone who doesn’t own a gas guzzling truck a pussy?
*** Update #6 ***
A solid win. Steelers v. Ravens next week. Should be a good one.
