    If you old enough to remember - the reason the verticle part of the goal posts are 20' high is because of the 1965 phantom Green Bay Packer kick (that was bad - but called good) - that tied the game and forced it into overtime where the Colts lost.

  2. Watching the ball frame by frame it was good!

    Fortunate to come out of this one with a win but after the robbery in Philly I'll take it. We're on track to make 3-1 in the opening four if we can avoid a letdown on the short week.

    That was all I was concerned about on that second try, the snap and the hold. The Ravens were lucky right there. But again, the Patriots were very lucky in the AFCCG, so two can play at that game.

    Yeah, it was actually good by a couple of feet. Just glad the refs didn't blow it and call it no good, being that it's not reviewable.

    I don't think you could be blamed for quitting. It was hard to see a victory down by 2 scores with a defense that was playing poorly, but somehow they got some stops at the end. I guess that's what good teams do.

    When we went down by 13 I logged off the forum. I still believed but this thread was crushing me. Now I wish I had stayed and insisted we would win, then I would really be gloating right now.

    I watched the whole game, and felt that as long as they kept it within two scores, the crowd would take over in the end, and they would pull it off. The Patriots tired at the end, but I think it was more emotional exhaustion than physical, with all the crowd noise.

    By the way, regarding my previous remark. That is why it's a risk to let the clock go all the way down before attempting the kick on third down or less. A bad snap, and it's the end of the game. Otherwise, you can cover the ball and call TO, and try again (few fans seem to know about this). Even though they did not have any more TOs there, so it is a moot point in this case.

    Sizzle just tweeted "3 DOWN, 3 TO GO!!" Wonder if that means he plans on coming back in a month?

    Can you imagine if they actually did that? What a nightmare for the NFL.
