The 91 is for Marquise Hill. As for why they're not 21, wasn't that a one-week thing? Sorry, I don't know.


maybe....
I did see a bunch of teams today with his number still on their helmets. just wondered what was up...

Take the best skill players from other teams and you will win.

Football is not about toughness anymore.


Don't worry, they'll have a running game next year when they draft Darren McFadden ;-D

Seriously though, Pittsburgh is excellent against the run so they'd likely just be bashing their head against a wall trying to. I'd love to see them run more myself but if the pass is working then that's what you do.


I was talking with a buddy of mine about his last week. The Patriots have for really the first time the 'luxury' of being a pass-first offense. And they're doing it so well, why stop? The conversation was started after the Balt game where there was so much wind, the NE passing offense was hobbled and it made them look mortal.

That's a great line. Can't wait to see what the reaction will be after this one. How badly did the officials help NE win this one? How many breaks did they get? I'm sure someone's compiling a list right now.

You're right, but the Patriots don't run against anyone. They didn't even run against the Browns! :-? They don't run on 4th and 1 and they don't run when they are winning by 4TDs. I want to be a Patriots running back! :-D

Do you actually watch players like Wes Welker or do you just like to whine? :~(

(I'm a Steelers fan, but let's at least be realistic)

I guess the 72 dolphins aren't popping the corks or lighting the cigars. Ironic that the 07 dolphins could go winless at the same time the 72 dolphins may lose the only-undefeated-season distinction.

I just wish Moss would stop dropping td passes. Seriously, he either drops one or has one called back every game. ;-7
