SNF Pre-Game: Giants @ Cowboys

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Kate Mara is the scion of football royalty, the daughter of Giants VP Chris Mara and Kathleen Rooney. That's my excuse for the picture. Not like you would really care about it.

Anyway, late games:

  • Minny's up 35-14 on the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale thanks to 160+ yards rushing by Adrian Peterson and 4 TD passes from Tarvaris Jackson (who takes Unlikely Fantasy Performer of the Day honors). 10+ minutes left in the 4th.
  • Matt Cassel also has 4 TD passes against the Raiders, but this is less impressive because it's the Raiders. Randy Moss was on the end of two of those passes, and the main highlight was back-to-back kickoff returns exchanged by the squads. 42-20, New England.
  • Carolina up 30-10 thanks to a TD each from DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, plus a hook-up between Jake Delhomme and Steve Smith. Jay Cutler has to carry the Denver offense and it isn't happening, obviously, so San Diego will stay alive for another week. 10 minutes left.
  • Defensive showdown in Baltimore (like anyone expected anything else), with the Ravens having kicked more field goals than the Steelers. 9-3 with 11 minutes to go.
Live blog's coming up in a little more than an hour, and let's keep track of anything too goofy on Football Night in America.


Goddamnit, Tiki. I love the fact that they're sending Tiki and Jerome out on the road to do live reports from games, but could Barber not pull an Emmitt Smith?

The Dallas RB's name is Tashard Choice, not Tanard.

And gee, Peter King is coming to his boy Romo's defense.

Steelers intercept Ravens in end zone. Idiot DB runs it out instead of taking knee in end zone.

Steelers in Victory Formation, now final.

"A very unhappy Gilmore"- Rich Eisen on NFLN they showed Adam Sandler's reaction to the Bills scoring a TD against Jets.

SSR - Collinsworth shouldn't be allowed to try and burn anyone any more.

When Mara was doing pressers here in Huntington for "We Are Marshall," one of my friends got a chance to interview her. He let me listen to the interview, and let's just say he was an another world for about three minutes.

But honestly, she doesn't impress me that much. She has a kickass body, but I just can't get past her face.

Gotta love NBC for kicking Bettis and Barber out in the cold. Now they need to do the same thing to Olberman and Patrick.

Just saw the Steelers touchdown that wasn't.

I'm thinking booth review makes these things worse. Unless there is an angle that the replay official gets that we don't, I don't see how that ball crossed the plane. His feet were in the end zone, but that's not the rule -- the ball has to cross the plane.

I think collinsworth broke down the reasoning for replay very well just then. the only way a call should be overturned is if there is unquestionable evidence to prove the call was wrong.

Olbermann said that "Ben Rothlisberger was in more trouble than Rod Blagojevich." Working on tomorrow's Number 5 story, eh Keith?
