Holy crap, Santonio Holmes is an eeeediot. If you aren't gonna catch the punt then get the eff away. Lucky he didn't get pushed into the ball. Bad challenge by Caldwell.
Yeah, I was yellin' at the TV for somebody to knock his ass into it. Dunno why the coverage team let him body them up like a power forward in basketball. Could've easily pushed him over onto it as the ball was going through his legs.
I've said before that I don't particularly mind the Colts. I actively root for them when they're not playin' the Steelers, but expected them to have issues this year. Thought for sure they wouldn't let Rex "Ispoogeonmywife'ssexyfeet" Ryan to go into their building and come away with a win. Gotta give credit where it's due though and they definitely made the right adjustments at the half.
Manning seemed to be fighting a losing battle the whole game though; kinda felt like he was the only one that went over the gameplan and prepared. WRs not in the right place or running wrong routes; dropping easy catches; and not fighting hard to get open (Wayne). Defensively, they were about as banged up as a team could be, but they just let NY have their way on the ground, especially in the 2nd half. Gotta force Dirty and his slippery fingered WRs to make a play. And, don't even get me started on Caldwell. Does that guy have a clue? Everytime the camera cuts to him, he has this, "I can't believe I'm a coach in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE" look on his face. If it wasn't for #18, the media would be doing their best to Childress him out of a job.
I absolutely don't see the Jets keeping it close against the Pastries. Don't think they'll get blown out to the tune of 45-3, but it definitely feels like a double digit margin of victory is coming. 34-17...31-16...34-20~ish.
Really, it's a Catch-22 for me. Doesn't matter which team wins, there are plenty of fans from each here that will do their best to annoy the fuck outta me. I will say though, that one of our new neighbors is a Boston/New England fan and is like the nicest guy you'll ever meet. I assume his parents were Steeler fans and he was switched at birth or something...
