    I was rooting for the Rams and one of my favorite players, Eric Dickerson that day. It was a playoff game. Gibbs and the Redskins featured the highest scoring offense in history at the time and scored and scored again mercilessly. All I can say to Redskin fans griping about today's blowout is, look in the mirror. Memories are long.

    Obviously different, They scored 51 we scored 52...that is the line that cannot be crossed!

    51 not running it up! 52 running it up!

    Hopefully, the Pats can score 60 or more on Indy's ass... I'll be ALL for it.

    I don't see how the Pats don't put up a least 40 on the Colts.

    Washington's D is every bit as good as Indy's. I expect A LOT of points next week.

    Personally I think it's another teams defense's job to stop a team from "running up the score" but to be fair all the Redskins did in that 2nd half was a couple field goals in the 3rd quarter and a pick-6 in the 4th.

    No comparison. A better one would be the Falcons game in 91 where the Skins won 56-17. I remember Gibbs being called out for running it up for continuing to throw deep up 35-17 in the 4th. The Skins couldnt run the ball at all and so kept throwing it. The last TD came after Glanville put Brett Favre in and he threw a pick 6 on his first throw.

    This is becoming absurd. How do you explain the 38 points in the 1st half? How do explain the following Redskin scores under Joe Gibbs? 45-0 (1991), 56-17 (1991), 45-7 (1983), 52-17 (2005), 51-7 (1983). Were they all examples of Saint Joe's sportsmanship? What about these scores under Martin Luther Dungy? 55-21 (2003), 49-14 (2004), 51-24 (2004).

    There are no unwritten rules anymore. All unspoken rules came to an end when BB's rivals teamed up to detroy him, his franchise and the careers of his players and coaches over the trumped up nonsense known as "videogate". Prior to that, the unwritten rule was that all teams tape games, and if a team has a problem the matter was handled between teams on the QT. Once that was broken, all other unwritten rules came to an end. Sayonara.

    Kicking FGs up 41-7 in the 2nd half is more a sign of running it up than running on 4th down. You see history through your redskin glasses. I experienced it rooting for the Rams while Saint Joe was laughing in the face of his opponent, kicking his fancy FGs. What total hypocrisy.

    There's a difference between scoring a lot of points and going for it on 4th down up by 20+ in the 4th.

    You're a total moron. Kicking Fgs is more a sign of running it up than a 4th down running play, which runs clock off and brings the end of the game closer. Keep kissing Saint Joe's shriveled @$$.

    I don't think you are a moron Saqs but, what are they suppose to do? This is professional football, you play the game to the end. They're not 12 year-olds. If you are throwing 40 yard bombs with five minute left, that is running up the score...

    BTW, will someone please look up Manning record breaking year. I know he had a few 4-5 TD's in blowout games but no one every criticizes saint Manning!!!

    I posted this in alt.sports.football.pro.ne-patriots....


    The Patriots have been accused of "running up the score" and generally
    treating other teams poorly. Heh. Let's see what Indy has done:

    1. vs. NO - W, 41-10
    2. at Ten - W, 22-20
    3. at Hou - W, 30-24
    4. vs Den - W, 38-20
    5. vs TB - W, 33-14
    6. at Jax - W, 29-7
    7. at Car - W, 31-7


    Two close games and the other five games were won by 31, 18, 19, 22,
    and 24 points (an average of 22.8 ppg). But of course nobody mentions
    this because they are....well, they're the Colts, full of class and
    dignity. Surely they would *never* be so dishonorable, would they?
    Nah.


    2004 - the year Peyton Manning broke the TD record with 49. Here are
    some scores from the Colts that year:
    35-14 over Oak
    49-14 over Hou
    41-10 over Chi
    41-9 over Det
    51-24 over Ten
    49-24 over Den in the playoffs


    In the Denver game, in the 4th quarter, ahead 35-17, Manning hit Wayne
    for a 42 yard TD pass to make it 42-17. Manning threw for 458 yards
    in that game.


    In the Tennessee game, ahead 41-24 in the 4th quarter, Manning hit
    Wayne for a 10 yard TD pass to make it 48-24. Manning threw for 425
    yards in that game.


    In the second half in the Detroit game, ahead 27-9, Manning hit
    Harrison for a 10 yard TD pass. Then, with the score 34-9, Manning
    hit Harrison for a 5 yard TD pass to make it 41-9.


    In the Chicago game, in the 2nd half, ahead 27-3, Manning hit Wayne
    with a 27 yard TD pass to make it 34-3.


    In the 3rd quarter of the Texans game, with the Colts ahead 21-0,
    Manning hit Stokley with a 69 yard TD pass to make it 28-0. Then,
    ahead 35-7, Manning hit Clark with an 80 yard TD pass to make it 42-7.


    I mean, nobody said anything then that Indy was running up scores, and
    yet we have here many examples of Peyton Manning gunning for late 2nd
    half touchdown passes with his team up by several TD on its helpless
    opponent.


    I do not deny (how could anyone?) that NE is taking great pleasure in
    beating people to a pulp this year. But for anyone (i.e.,
    Easterbrook) to suggest that people like Indy would never do this and
    that BB is evil for "running up the score" conveniently forget that
    Manning has made a career of doing this.

    There's nothing anyone is specifically "supposed" to do in a situation where a game is well in hand. It all comes down on how you want to be looked at.
    If you care to be looked at/called classy you do one thing. If you dont care you do another. That's pretty much it. Opinions differ on the matter obviously.
