No full write up this week, since my local CBS affiliate decided it was more important to show Pats fans the Browns/Cowboys OT than the first quarter of a Pats game. Dunno why. It makes no sense to me. But, by the time I actually got to see the game, it was 14-7 Colts, and just about the second quarter, and there was no sense in game charting then.
Talib is already worth the 4. His interception return was astounding.
Dancer had a great day. Kick return TD, reception TD, and tackled at the 3 on an end around that started at the 50. Almost a trifecta.
The Gronk injury noise is silly. He was hurt on a fluke thing on the XP team, which happens to be the safest play in football. None of the media types whining about him being out there mention he didn't play on the actual drive at all.
Rant: How come when the Pats win big it's 'running up the score' and when other teams do it, it's not? If you remove the three return TDs: Edleman's punt return and the TAINTs by Talib and Dennard, it's a 38-24 game. That's not running up the score. When the Ravens ran that fake punt on the Raiders, last week - and I approve of that play, I'm not criticizing the call at all - they were not accused of running up the score. They were criticized for wasting a good trick play, but not for running up the score. Be consistent, Media, yell at everyone who wins big or no one. I vote for no one.
Current playoff seeding: 3. Current Path: Steelers/@Baltimore/winner of the game Houston hosts.
