Re: Merrill Hoge Defending BB ??
I know, right? Never thought I'd see the day, either! And Cris Carter, too, which was rather surprising IMO. Also, Mike Greenberg, of all people, was vigorously defending BB all morning on M&M. He usually strikes me as pretty fair regarding the Pats/BB despite being a Jests fan, but I still didn't expect that. Although, I suspect he's just afraid for his Jests next week and is trying to butter up BB. If Schlereth defends BB later on NFL live, I'll probably really freak out. Then again, I expect Schlereth to hop off the BB/Pats bandwagon again soon (if he hasn't already) if McD doesn't start getting his Broncs back to winning.
I guess I should appreciate that some of the usual mediotic anti-Pats suspects are defending BB for a change, but really, it mostly just makes feel uncomfortable in some way. Hee.
When you see the replay he should be defended... it was a 1st down..
The end of the world must be at hand.
The result really doesn't matter.
He took a calculated gamble. He thought the chance that he could get a first down was higher than the chance of stopping the colts with 2 minutes and a time out. Considering that the colts had scored twice in less than 2 minutes (80 yard drive in 1:42, and 75 yard drive in 1:11), its a good shot, IMO.
He lost. That doesn't mean the decision was wrong.
The bad decision was throwing on 3rd down.
I had to take a second look at the TV I could not believe what the hell he was saying, too funny I think he was being nice just to rub it in
He was faking it for sure, there's hate in the mans heart for the pat's:beatingcoming:
Have asked this question before and it is rhetorical at best, how about if the play that was called was essentially a Brady decision made at the line of scrimmage.. he went up to the line and if the defense had vulnerability he would run a play, if not just take the delay and back up Hansen 5 yards... he saw #33 on a Safety, and liked the odds... he took a shot.
