Add to this that Archie getting behind men thing and I agree 100%
I'll try again.
When your team is already up by 20 with 2:30 to play, you kick the field goal...unless:
A: you're worried about the TEXANS scoring THREE TDs and THREE 2-pt conversions in the final two minutes...or,
B: the inmates are running the asylum.
Either way, it's the DEFINITION of running up the score.
let me know if you're still confused.
Ok. I'm not in the MENSA organization. But that is the truest DEFINITION of running up the score or padding the stats that I can think of.
Thank you Taildragger.
I like that Peyton commercial for some football service where he's in the shotgun against the Titans, talks to the camera in the middle of the play, and then throws the TD pass over the middle.
Before the pass, the score is 28-3.
Manning had to have approved of that commercial to be in it. Even in his fantasies, he's padding his stats.
colts get possession with 5:06 to go in the game. they run the ball 4 times...houston calls a time out at 3:35.
colts run the ball 3 more time...houston calla time out with 2:42 to go in the game.
houston then changes their defensive package to load up on the run, so the colts offense does what it is designed to do...they attack the weakness.
not to mention that houston was calling timeouts, so they obviously thought they could stay in the game. the colts showed them that they couldn't by running for another td.
so...the opposition thinks they can still win (and is trying to), they're calling time outs to stop the clock, and they're changing their package to stop the run...sounds like the colts play smart football to me.
8 runs, 1 pass in the possession. sure sounds like "running it up."
Two things. First, kicking field goals at that point is running up the score and is seen by some as worse than moving the ball and forcing the defense to stop you. Second, I think that the Colts got PO'ed that the Texans were burning all their time outs when the game was basically over and the Colts were just running out the clock. So I think that they thought if that's the way they want to play it, so will we. I've seen this happen before other teams and also with the Colts. They were perfectly happy running the ball and running out the clock until Houston started calling time outs.
It's a commercial, get over it. BTW, the score was kind of the point of the commercial. They were advertising the fact that you could watch any game you wanted and weren't forced to watch a blow out like you would be with a network game.
O.K. NOTE TO ALL GUYS ON HERE..
Despite me being a HUGE Patriots fan - Almost All who commented in here can now officially eat crow
another one already? There was another thread just like this that just got bumped. You guys are providing more quotables than I can handle in only two threads!!!
Unbelievable. A LOT of hypocrites on this board.
I have to note that alot (not all) of the people that still post on this board (desi-patsfan is one i can remember) posted that they dont have a problem with running up the score in this thread.
I always hear Bill Murray saying what you write in his best Caddyshack voice.
