Chargers logo looks unaccountably small.
Yeah, the very first week it was "fixed" I noticed it was actually now smaller than the other logos by 2 pixels in diameter, if I recall correctly.
I guess the moral of the story is that even the NY Times doesn't have infinite resources. Who'da thunk?
That whole article was d*mn funny. Thank you.
While there is a DT named Ron Edwards, the guy Allen hit was his former teammate Ray Edwards.
At least by Allen's description it was a mock-punch, just to show him he could have done so if he wanted.
Up the Irons!
Yes! That is what Jerry Jones needs: a containment bunker. He should be kept there during drafts, football games, football seasons, and years in which football is played.
I guess I don't see the Bengals as fading. They'll beat the Texans. No one will see it because of blackout rules, but it will happen.
Wow... way to rub the salt in for Bills fans.
"They are a tough, plucky team..."
I'd want to see the Titans' PVOA (Pluckiness VOA) before going that far, Mike.
Also, your editor left you a note, you forgot to call them "gritty," which is required whenever "plucky" is used. Sportswriters' Manual of Style.
That's only for white receivers.
I have faith that Rex Grossman could find a way to throw an interception in any life situation, up to + including Zumba.
The Texans live comfortably with third-string quarterback T.J. Yates the same way the Broncos have thrived during the Tim Tebow experiment and the 49ers have made peace with the Alex Smith enigma: they avoid turnovers, pass judiciously if not always successfully and treat punts as opportunities for the defense, not as failures. It is not optimal football strategy, but it is better than going into denial like the Colts, the Bears and the Eagles, who pretend everything is status quo while backup quarterbacks stagger beneath oversized expectations.
From a Bears' fan perspective, this is depressingly accurate.
"Montessori School of the Damned."
I never thought I'd describe the Eagles quite in this way, but it's depressingly apt.
