(But the Chargers lead the Bills 24-14 with 2:45 left in the 4th)
prevents possible sneak up
The Bills recover the on-side kick but it was touched by the kicking team before it went 10 yards. Chargers win 24-21.
Fabulous! We need them to take two more dives and we could be in very good shape!! (That is, if we can get in shape ourselves).
1 BEHIND THE COLTS. And tied with the Ravens I believe. Woot!!!!
BTW Vince Young is the real deal. It takes a lot of guts for a rookie QB to lead his team to a come from behind victory like this against a team like the Colts. Yeah it took a 60 yard figgie to seal the deal. But this is one of the great wins of his young career. The Titans will be good as soon as next year so long as Vince continues to progress and the Titans surround him with the proper support.
1 behind + the tiebreaker when the Colts beat the Patriots.
Dungy... here's your pink slip. Friggin kicking a FG on 4th and 1 at the goal and letting that carrpy defense take the field again
So, is Vince Young the first QB to own the Manning brothers in consecutive games? If so, he's my 2nd favorite QB of all time. I'm sick of the Romo hype; there needs to be 45 minutes of Vince Young hype on Sportcenter tonight.
Agreed. Plain and simple, Fisher is a great coach. With that young team, he has done one heck of a good job.
Yes, but the league has issued a statement that this game really didn't mean anything, therefore the Colts were able to preserve their NFL record winning streak in regular season games that mean something at 35. Bill Polian said so.
I didn't see the game, Ryan. What was the situation at that point?
Colts have the Jags and Cincy coming up, but they are not going to lose three games in a row. The team that is the one we need to worry about is San Diego. Tough running team with a good defense. Would rather play them in the snow then sunny Ca.
Around 4 minutes to go in the game Manning went 60 yards to Harrison. They drive to the goal. Scored a TD but it was PI... 3rd and 6 Manning options to Addai to the 1 yard line. Without any hesitation, Dungy calls out the FG unit on 4th and 1 on the goal line.
Around 2:25 to go you HAVE to attempt the TD. Even if you miss, the Titans are so backed up.
So why didn't Peyton overrule him? Has he lost contol of the team?
I see where you're coming from, but I'm not sure it is so easy a decision to have made. You're facing a rookie qb, with hardly any time left. And even then, it took a freak of a field goal to win the game...Dungy has a reputation of playing it safe, but it seems harder to fault him in a case like this...just my opinion...
On the other hand, the rookie rb could very well have scored from the 1. Not sure why he wasn't used more...the boxscore indicates an almost even distribution between Addai and Rhodes...has that been the norm lately? Addai's numbers have been much bigger recently...
Huh? Looking at the box score the Colts had to kick the figgie to tie it. If the Colts go for it on 4th down and they don't make it they're going to lose the game by 3 with less than 3 minutes left in the game right?
Oh well whatever. Sounds like sour grapes to me. The Pats should have lost the game they won today. I can admit it.
The Colts just got beat. Can you admit it?
werent they down by 3 pts..i think it may have been a right call...although i didnt watch the game so cant say what the situation was..
WOW, thats stupid. With an offense like the Colts you problably could have pounded it in with Addai or Manning problably could have done a play action and got a TD because he is that good.
EDIT: I didnt watch, they were down by 3? Its a conservative call though maybe the right one if you dont have a very good offense but the Colts have a superb offense...
LOL. If its sour grapes its towards my coach. Not the Titans. They played well both games and deserved the win.
Yes they were down 3. If they dont convert, it's first and 10 on the Titans 1 yard line with 3 minutes to go. I'd much rather burn our timeouts and hope they punt.
Everyone calls dungy a good coach and he probably is a good coach but what has he added to the colts since he has been there.iam not knocking him , just a serious question, past 4-5 yrs his defenses have been bad and i doubt he has had an effect on the offense.Sure he may be a better coach than mora but its hard to see the value so far honestly..We can blame on salary cap for defense but they could still sign decent free agents and make this defense respectable....what do you think ?
