2nd, he was limping around for part of last night's game. Took himself out.  MAN UP/BUCK UP.

3rd, they keep talking about that one handed catch in the Dallas game last year. GIANTS LOST that game.

4th, I don't care what kind of practice routine he has before games. It's all about GAME TIME, baby.
Hi, idfnl.

Crazy call by Tomlin that ended up working out.

That last quarter was good.  Ballsy call that ended up working out.  I'm not complaining as Bell is on my Fantasy.

I am in no way a Steelers fan, but that was pretty cool. I was watching the game with a friend of mine who happens to be from Pittsburgh so obviously he was flipping out. biggrin.gif

It ended up (just barely) working out, but (as a Steelers fan) I still think it was a dumb call. Having Bell take the snap that deep in the backfield meant that there was virtually no chance they could stop the clock and kick a field goal (or run another play if they were feeling ballsy) if that one didn't get in. I'll take it, though.

Not to be overlooked: the difference having a kicker who can hit routine field goals makes.

I was reading today that the clock manager took off 18 seconds right before the Steelers took the field on the final drive and no one noticed it. Had Bell got stopped and ended the game, there would've been a huge shit storm. NFL League Office currently has no explanation on why it wasn't noticed.

Makes me wonder whether anyone on the Steelers' staff noticed, and if so why they weren't screaming at the refs about it.

I'm always amazed when at the pro or big-money college level something like that goes completely unnoticed. (I've seen major college basketball games, for example, when nobody caught the fact that the officials had miscounted the number of fouls on a key opposing player and let him stay in the game with five fouls.) I know there's a lot going on and it's chaotic and all that, but if you're a major program don't you have some junior staff member or intern whose only job it is to stay on top of stuff like that?

Also kind of amazing that in the age of live tweeting anything like that slips by. If 18 seconds mysteriously get run off the clock during a late-game dead ball, wouldn't you expect 8 kajillion sports geeks to be tweeting about it immediately? And again, given the incredible amount of info that gets noticed and disseminated when you have millions of sets of eyes and near-instantaneous communication, don't teams have folks assigned to monitoring social media during the game to see if anything useful gets flagged? (E.g., "every time Kershaw adjusts his jock the next pitch is a breaking ball")

LOL Browns.

^ The Browns are so bad that Peyton Manning can't even choke against them.

Rivers is an idiot. How could he not have seen the open man during 2nd down, and then try it again on 4th. The middle also divided open during 2nd down, but I don't think he's really a runner like Kaepernick.

At least the 49ers sneaked one win in..

I think you're holding rivers to an almost impossible standard - he singlehandly brought the bolts back. 500 yards and no turnovers - what else do you want from the man.

What the fuck, Colts?
post #3689 of 4994
Lol at that Colts play. Also, Jamie Collins is awesome.

I thnk the guy playing center was never supposed to snap the ball. Looks like he just panicked when he saw the play clock winding down. Even so, though, it's better to take the delay of game penalty than snap it with 5 guys lined up in front of the 2 of you...
