Monday Night Football Question --> Driver

Postby Lioish » Tue Nov 28, 2006 1:10 am

Ok, here's my problem ...

I was outside smoking a cig ... blinds and window open. It's the 4th quarter, GB has the ball on a 3rd and 3 or 4 with under 2 mins left. I may have been smoking crack but I swore I saw/heard them say that Driver got the first down. I could be wrong and it was Green (#80 vs. 30). My Yahoo! league didn't update with anything (completion or rush) so now I'm second guessing myself thinking it was Green.

Was it Green or Driver? Anyone know if the NFL sells their games online so I can set my mind as ease? Umm ... anyone have a TiVo? :)

The reason I ask is that if it was Driver .. I won this week. If it was Green ... I tied. The person I played this week is in 2nd place (8-3-0) where I'm currently in 1st (9-2-0). I love and thrive on competition and this league is among friends and family so I would prefer 10-2-0 vs. a 9-2-1. If for nothing else, then for the smack talk next Sunday when we get together again ... heh.

Anyway, thanks for any reply's and/or updates. It's my first season playing FF and I wouldn't have this record without the FFC forum members advice.

i can't remember, but you can just go to nfl.com or espn.com, check the boxscore and figure out how many points you got yourself.

You are correct ... I did a double-check on ESPN's play-by-play and it was Green for a 7 yard gain.

Thanks for the reply's ... mind is set at ease. A tie is better than a loss I guess. heh :)

Now what really would have been freaky if Driver got some sort of points off that last fumble recovery at the end of the game. But no it ended up being a penalty and officially he never got the ball.

Too bad though because that double fumble/forward pass at the end of the game was cool.

Wait a minute...

Fresh off of Rotoworld:
Donald Driver's official stats from Monday night's game will be changed. He will be awarded a seven-yard catch that was given to Ahman Green.
Driver will finish with three catches for 89 yards and a score.


Looks like you didn't hear a ghost after all.

Could you give a link on that? I couldn't find it on Rotoworld, and if that's true, then I win instead of tie.

edit: Never mind, found it!

Well, I haven't been given the win yet. How do these things work on yahoo? Will it automatically correct the score, or does the commissioner have to do it?
