Some Football Thoughts

  • I went to watch Oklahoma versus Texas -- a good ol' fashioned tough guy red state rivalry -- and a European Soccer game broke out. Despite the officials being fooled by this flop festival, the game was highly entertaining and lived up to its billing. In the wonderful world of "what-ifs," this game would have been much different if Ryan Reynolds hadn't gotten hurt.
  • Holy Toledo! Michigan lost again.
  • To the NFL, where the officials continued their streak of incompetently giving at least one game away. This week's winner: Minny vs. Detroit.
  • Thank you Dan Orloskvy for that entertaining safety. You have the pocket presence of a 6-year-old Tony Eason.
  • Officials have obviously been instructed by the NFL to ignore holding penalties; they want to protect quarterbacks and have higher scoring games. Why not just changes the rules and allow holding?
  • I'm a big fan of innovative formations, but when I hear about "Wildcat," I think of Goldie Hawn.
  • The problems with the Patriots go beyond Tom Brady being hurt. The defensive line isn't living up to its reputation and they badly miss Asante Samuels.
  • Time to say that the AFC domination over the NFC is over.
