    A couple of things...

    One, heck of a game.

    Two, after 2 or 3 sacks, maybe try sending some help to block him.

    Three, on that one sack where he had Leftwich but couldn't get him down at first, what was the deal with him clubbing at Leftwich's head? I'm just wondering because I thought coming anywhere close to a QB's head was a no no in the NFL.

    Even if he doesn't do anything else he has already:

    Played in four Superbowls, has three rings, holds the record for most sacks in a playoff game, in the playoffs, and I believe he is either tied for or one behind the record fro most sacks in the Superbowl. Sounds like HOFer to me.

    looked more like he grabbed for the helmet (at most slapping)--i believe the rule is meant more for actual clubbing/punching...and of course is a matter of circumstance and umpires discretion...

    There's been alot of discussion on this board about whether or not Willie is a HOFer. The general opinion was that he was worth consideration but not a lock. The voters love stats and records and now he's got a few. I call him a lock!

    The best part of his day was after the last gift sack where the quaterback was chased into him he pulled himself from the game signalling enough is enough with a big smile on his face.

    He will make it now. Just a question of how many ballots it will take.

    Leave it to a Colts fan to throw cold water on a great performance. Sometimes it takes a while, but you can take the Colts fan out of Troll City but you can't take the Troll City out of a Colts fan.

    I had to rewind that one to see it again at the time. I was laughing and couldn't believe he wasn't called for what looked like taking 3 whacks at the QBs head. But after rewinding it and watching the replay, I'm guessing it wasn't called because it was pretty clear he was trying to slap at the ball and the head contact was incidental.

    I wasn't trolling, I was just asking a question. Usually you come anywhere near the head and there is flag.

    It was almost comical. I was like "oh my goddness, I can't beleive he's beating him down like that...and right in front of the ref." I was was just wondering if anyone else saw the same thing.

    If I may also make a suggestion, it would be nice to have a descriptive title for these threads to avoid duplication

    Thread titles like

    "Mangini"

    and

    "Willie McGinest"

    and

    "Tom Brady"

    and

    "New England Patriots"

    could probably benefit from being a bit more descriptive and might avoid duplicate threads

    #95 Jersey

    being possibly willies biggest fan, i always keep my eye on him on every defensive play (whenever hes in, since 94)

    anyway, one thing id thought id note is that while statistically this was his best game ever, it actually wasnt his best game performance wise

    i still cant believe he got 4.5, that was crazy

    im so proud of my boy, willie

    he really deserved it, and the recognition he received

    Willie is the coolest of the cool, that's all there is to say. The way he's gone from underachiever to team leader and borderline hall of famer is very impressive and he does it in a quiet, nonchalant way. I can't say he's my favorite Patriot as there's so much competition from Brady, Bruschi, Rodney, etc, but Willie is a seriously kick ass player and person.

    I for one would LOVE Willie to get to the Hall but I consider it somewhat of a longshot. He has only been to a I think 2 pro bowls (not that that matters to Pats, but probably does to HOF voters) and unfortunately got hit hard by the injury bug in the middle of his career.
    His # should certainly be retired by the pats when it is all said and done.

    Well, EXCUUUUUSE US.

    I started a different Willie because it was a different Willie subject.

    Please forgive me.

    I was thinking the same thing on that I said to my brother "Wow, he's lucky he didn't get a penalty"
