I'm glad for Peyton, too; if anybody had to beat the Pats ...
Hope they crush da Bears.
Let's see. Brady has 2 hands on the ball and fumbles. Ref invents the tuck rule so Al Davis and the Raiders get screwed. No one cares, its the Raiders and it would be REALLY COOL if a team named Patriots play in the Super Bowl after 911.
Pats change bump and run to grab and tackle. Beat rams in Super Bowl. With the help of stubborn Mike.
"Let em play Corollo" fails to call mugging of Indy tight end by McGinnest and Tom JacKson says "You're not going to get a call like that in a game like this." WHY NOT??? NFL films doesn't show series in highlights of the game.
League vows to enforce the 5 yard rule. Reporters call it the Patriot rule. Only teams that they call it on are Green Bay and Panthers.
If you don't enfoce the rules, then the cheaters win. All the crying about guys taking steroids in baseball and teams are allowed to cheat in big games with the blessing of the NFL.
I have just about had it with football. Going back to golf where the players call penalties on themselves. If they don't know the rule, someone watching will call it for them.
