rex was just too stubborn and stupid. when it was a 1 score game and we had the ball, he kept force feeding the run for little 2-3 yard chunks and 1st and 2nd down and putting us in 3rd down situations which we never converted.


Apparently the Jets WR's are having a mutiny on Schottenheimer and Sanchez

I get wanting to establish the run, but when you see a secondary like NE's, you can wait a week. If anything, Sanchez's confidence could've been built up...at least try it during the first half and see where it leads. Just can't understand why establishing the run > attacking an obvious weakness.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Yes, that AFL-NFL merger will NEVER work.


He never wanted the merger, he wanted to kick the nfl's ass, but was out voted by the other owners.

Off the top of my head: Ralph Wilson, Lamar Hunt, Paul Brown.

They were right.

No, I don't mind at all. I am happy about it.

At least in my world the NFL merger was successful and Lamar Hunt, Ralph Wilson and Paul Brown ARE in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

I guess that was a little harsh. I would have liked it if the AFL had remained and given the nfl the competition it deserved. Al Davis in the last few years tested my patience but without him the Raiders wouldn't have evolved into the legacy that it became. And besides he was a hell of a lot more likeable than "Art Modell" lol

What an ugly game for the Bears... very undisciplined, 2 big-play touchdowns given up to Megatron and Best, and despite some nice numbers from Cutler/Forte, they just aren't getting to the redzone. The Lions' defensive line looks it has the potential to be pretty lethal... they are just abusing the Bears' offensive line and harassing Cutler right now (funny enough, Cutler, for once, is probably the main reason the Bears are even still in this game :P)... and I could only imagine how good it will be when Nick Fairley gets more NFL reps under his belt.

I really can't wait for the first Packers/Lions matchup.

the Lions just look better and better every week. Jay Cutler got abused tonight by that D-Line.. he made some nice plays but when you let your QB get hit like that, you're not gonna win. Detroit looked like a complete team tonight, plain and simple

The problem is I used to really like Al, but the past 10+ years he kind of destroyed his own creation.

I have no problems with Modell it wasn't his fault the local politicians in Cleveland didn't listen to him. They lost a team, and had to make all the repairs he asked for anyway as Cleveland Stadium was a hazard. site

modell was the prototypical "greedy owner". He bought the stadium and assumed all costs and collected rent from the indians and his own team. He lost the indians because he didn't share revenue on the loge seats or fix the locker rooms etc.. and then he bitched because they built jacobs field and every one moved over there.. well DUH... so he made his bed and the city didn't care if he slept in it. The secret deal with baltimore didn't look too good either, it smacked of memories of how the colts left in the middle of the night. He was quite the hypocrite also when he joined in the lawsuit to try and stop al davis from moving the raiders to L.A. the difference being that davis didn't own oakland-alemeda stadium therefore was not resposible for upgrades to the stadium. Modell wanted his cake and wanted to eat it too.. ergo, he was a greedy bastard and didn't care a sh!t about the cleveland brown fans.. pure and simple.

Wait, so because he charged rent to the Indians to use the stadium, he is greedy? Why should he share the revenue if he owned the place?

I would suggest that you watch the ESPN special:
