I'm ready to go for Week Eleven Monday Nighter and I hope some of you are as well. It'll be tough to keep my eye on both the MNF crew and Dick Vitale on ESPN2, but I'm going to give it a shot.
"Mike 'Cat Scratch Fever' Nugent. You normally don't sweat out a 38 yarder but that almost rolled over like the Browns' kick."- Chris Berman
That's the exact opposite of the Browns' kick Chris. It didn't go over....well it did but it came back....you know what? Nevermind. He won't understand no matter how I try and explain it.
Not to bust on someone's appearance, but Jaws needs some teeth whitening bad. Those cigs are leaving stains my friend.
Steve Young seems to have toned it down this week. Much better Steve...muuuuuch better. I'm pretty sure he took bumps with Emmitt in the production truck before last week's game.
God I was so waiting for you to mess up there Emmitt....bravo for getting through that one. In all honesty this is probably the best pregame that the Monday Night Countdown has had this year.
And with that....let's get ready for the game. God this one's gonna be a crapfest.
Could Tony at least pretend like he wants to be there? Is that so much to ask??? Whoa nice mullet from Fisher when he was a coach on the 9ers. Good stuff.
Wow that Olyphant intro was terrible. If you missed it I'll have it up in a few. Titans ball.....
Broncos sniff out a WR screen and that's nothing on first. Tony calls out Jaws' statement that the Titans would run the ball 50 times. Tirico says third down is a passing down and right on cue VY scrambles for a first.
Young throws a perfect pass and Brandon Jones drops the ball. He burnt Bailey on that one, but couldn't make the catch. VY doesn't let it bother him as he zips one to Williams for the first.
The Broncos stop the Titans 3 in a row and that'll be the drive. Titans punt.
Selvin Young with a nice run to pick up 8 on first down. Another counter nets another 4 yards for Young. Cutler to the TE Scheffler for a nice first and the Broncos are on the move.
Great improv play by Cutler and the Broncos pick up a very quick six! 48 yards after Stokley made a defender whiff....
Who's bored already?
"That's the throw Vince Young has to put on the belt buckle."- Ron Jaworski
Wouldn't that be low?
Broncos stuff Lendale White on third and short and the Titans punt it away to Martinez......
GONE! 79 yard punt return!!! Great run.
14-0 Denver. Game over.
The Broncos are making the Titans' offense look terrible.
"Sam Adams the player, not the beer, I should point out."- Tony Kornheiser
Was that joke ever funny? Even in the 90s when Adams first started in the league??? Didn't think so. Glad all of the commenters caught that one with me.
Young proceeds to try and shut me up for calling the game early with a few first downs and the Titans are nearing the Red Zone. And right on cue as I'm typing that.....
TOUCHDOWN TITANS! Young to Jones for 21 yards.....
14-7. That was a pretty drive.
"God, we are Thankful in this holiday season for this Cosellian entertainer giving us this free entertainment. ARE YOU ENTERTAINED!?!?!?"- Hollywood Wags
Now that's funny.....
Denver starts back up again and after a nice screen play to Graham they pick up a 40 yard interference penalty and a trip to the redzone. Titans pick up a goalline stop and the Broncos will kick....
Just a quick question for everyone....Where's Suzy Kolber? Maternity leave???
"There it is...I hadn't heard an unsolicited Favre reference yet. Thanks jackass."- Anon
You knew it was coming. By the way....I don't think the Oregon Ducks are happy with me. Be sure to send them your opinion.
In the meantime, Lendale fumbles the football and Denver recovers. Selvin Young is looking good in just his third start, and Denver really can't be stopped by the supposed stellar Titans' D.
Martinez drops a pass and Elam comes on the field again....
Great drive by the Titans, and an amazing catch by Bo Sciafe which is called a drop. No challenge and that's just wrong. Jones misses another catch he should have made and the Titans will attempt a FG....
"That ball hit the meat of his hand."- Ron Jaworski
Oooh Bironas misses but Mike Shan called a timeout to ice him. And finally someone makes him pay for it. The second kick is good!
That's the half and I'm almost ready to skip the 2nd half of this boring game. Enh....I'll brave it out. If you're around please keep me entertained.
