That was a good game.

I thought the Rams were going to win, but it was a lot of fun to watch.

Tom Brady. 24 years old, a Super Bowl MVP and winning QB.

Bledsoe. Uh...He must be pissing himself, fuming.

Bledsoe will probably be traded or stay as the best backup in the NFL.
post #12 of 35
Nope, Bledsoe is definitely gone. The Pats have chosen Tom Brady. They'd rather free up the money and hire some more people for Brady to pass to.

Bledsoe will probably go to the Bears or something.

Way to go out on a limb. Yeah, I'm sure he'll either stay or be traded too.

What is another option, retiring?



BTW, what the hell is up with John Madden? Does the old guy need to retire or what?

"They'll just run out the clock here and play for overtime."

Uh, suuuuuure John. Here, have another pill.

The Rams would have gotten the ball in overtime. And since first scorer wins I think the Pats would have had a 75% chance at losing. Cause if I was the Rams I would just drive the ball close enough for a FG and they WERE getting great returns off the Pats. It wouldn't have been hard.

I was rooting for the Pats. They aren't my team but my team didn't make it so of the 2 "bandwagons" I chose the smaller one. I told a friend at the beginning of the game that turnovers would be key. If the Pats could be +2 or 3, they'd have a chance. If it was -2 or 3, it would be a blowout. But even though I could see a scenario where the Patriots could win, I still thought they'd come up short. What a great game.

Madden wasn't the only one who expected the Pats to run out the clock and play overtime. Bradshaw said the same thing. It was risky to pass from their own 20, but Brady pulled it off. That guy's got his coach's confidence.

Da Bears aren't the only ones interested in Bledsoe. Washington and Denver are in the mix too. Brady stays, Bledsoe moves on. Why would he stay to be a back up, when he can start somewhere else? Gus Frerotte is in the same spot in Denver. If they don't go after Bledsoe though, he might have a shot of supplanting Griese next year.

You have to think that Miami would be interested too and Baltimore is wishing they hadn't already sunk an investment in Grbac. Or how about San Diego? And what's the situation in Seattle? (I don't follow the SeaHawks at all.) Bledsoe working with Holmgren could be a very interesting fit - Shanahan too as far as that goes.

This was the first time I've seriously not wanted either team to win. It was great to just watch it and appreciate the football game.

I'm happy for the Pats and Brady though. That last drive will be remembered for a while.

Actually, the new owner (former owner of the Marlins), made a team that was the fastest ever to win a World Series. Plus, the way that the fans are charged the highest ticket prices in baseball, the team isn't going to run out of money like the Marlins did after they won.

Hopefully, this will be the year where everyone is healthy, and they have a shot at winning.

To the Boston-area folks looking to go see the Sox this year, take a look in this past Sunday's Globe. There's an order form for packs of four tickets (four games, 1 ticket each, that is), with discounts that make them cheaper than last year's tickets, and maybe even the previous year's. Also, all the selections have a game against the hated Yankees, a hard ticket to find later in the year. Worth checking out.

Congrats to the Patriots, too. i'm not a real football fan, but they're fun to watch.
post #26 of 35
Ticket prices are outrageous this year, discount or not. If I'm lucky, I might go see one game this year. If I'm really lucky, maybe 2. It's really a shame.

Plus, I wouldn't call the Yankees 'hated'. It's always some great baseball when we play them. On that note, I'm glad that we're playing them more times this year than in the past. Now if we could only get rid of interleague play, we'd be back to some serious baseball again.

Yo, you're red sox better resign Cone. He's the sole man responsible for making your season almost interesting. Still possibly the best baseball game I have ever seen in person when Cone went up against Mussina in the near perfect game. beautiful. Cone is da man

No he wasn't. The Sox' new owner was the second owner of the Marlins. The first one, Wayne Huzenga (I know I'm spelling his name wrong), was the one who built and then dismantled that World Series team. Joe Henry, from what I've heard, was a good owner. He just bought into a bad situation down in Miami.
