Gameday - CHI

***

It's now about 245pm. Kickoff seems like it is about 3 days from now.

The Giants are up 17-7 on ATL at the half. UPDATE...ATL just scored a TD. 17-14 score now.

Dallas trails WAS 3-0 at halftime. Go Skins.


VICK?

Chris Berman made a prediction that Michael Vick would be a guy to watch in tonight's game. He and Andy are somewhat close. I don't know if this is a guess on Boomer's part or if Big Red gave him some inside info.

I wondered if Vick might not play in short yardage and/or goal line situations. I didn't talk much about it because we've thought "this is the week" for a while. I've given up on guessing when Vick will come in and actually do something. Berman's comments carry more weight that most broadcasters because he actually follows the team and does have a friendship with Reid.

Tommy, how about Andy Studebaker today for the Chiefs? He's got 3 tackles and 2 picks. I can see why we drafted him.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Wow. That's impressive.

Matt Ryan just did in his 2nd year what Donnie hasn't been able to do for the last 3 years. They were down by a TD with 3 minutes left and the Ryan led them on a 12 play 76 yard drive for a TD.

Now in Donnie's defense it would've been hard to go down the field that quickly because Andy would've shuffled in and out a total of 64 different players in between plays.

Lot of crazy games so far today:

- Indy hangs on to beat the Ravens after Ed Reed makes a bonehead play.

- Detroit vs. Cleveland is a shootout.

- KC vs. Pittsburgh and NYG vs. ATL are in OT right now.

- San Fran was down BIG, now they're fighting to come back on the Packers.

DET just pulled off a miracle win over CLE.

Wild day.

Shocker of the week: The lowly Chiefs upset the Steelers in overtime. Wow.

Tony Romo has looked like garbage the past 3 games but manages to make 1-2 completions that result in a touchdown, and his team's defense does the rest.

NFC East is going to be a complete tossup this year.

I could kill Shaun Suisham.

Most overused word of the NFL season: microcosm. Every dropped pass or busted play is a "microcosm for this team's season."

Thesauruses should be removed from the broadcast booth.

Man if only the wind or had been going a different direction or something today. The Boys and the Giants would be 6-4 and 5-5 rather than the much more irritating 7-3 and 6-4.

On another note, the Pats are currently DESTROYING the Jets. Some backup playing LT just broke a DB in half.

And to add to Studebaker's big day for the Chiefs, two other former Eagles are playing big for their teams today: DanAm and Gibson are playing solid as their new team - the Rams - tries to come back on Arizona.

As of now, they're a combined 8 receptions for over 100 yards.

Oops! Spoke too soon, Gibson just made a big catch in the red zone to put the Rams inside the 10.

Man, I'd love to have both those guys on our roster right now. DanAm would certainly be more useful than Reggie Brown, right? Especially when you factor in his kick return ability.

Oakland comes from behind to tie Cincy at 17-17 with less than a minute left. Wow.

A lot of games today that I'd never want to watch turned out to be intriguing.

Cliff said...

Ha! Spoke too soon! Cincy fumbles the kick-off!

Geeze. I hope our game isn't this crazy tonight.

THe announcers during the Cincy-OAK game just said there were five teams who came from behind in the 4th quarter today.
