That was interesting, even though I don't gamble beyond the occasional lottery quick-pick when it hits 9 figures. Thanks.
75-1 on something that happened 3 different times in 18 weeks during the regular season/playoffs?
The "Ditka didn't give Walter Payton a chance to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl" thing is a myth. Sure, Perry got the one carry at the 1 (and was sacked from the 5 earlier in the game), but Payton carried the ball on:
2&2 from the 5 (1Q): gained 1
1&goal from the 3 (1Q): lost 2
1&goal from the 4 (2Q): gained 2
1&goal from the 5 (4Q, up 44-10): gained 1
2&goal from the 4 (4Q, up 44-10): gained 1
It's not Ditka's fault that the only thing the Patriots could do well that day was stop Payton.
In which the FO staff tries to make sense of whatever the hell the Titans are doing.
