Just Another Flippin' Sunday

Headline seen today:

"Vick apologizes for making obscene gesture"

“First and foremost, I would like to apologize for my inappropriate actions with fans today,” the quarterback said in a statement released by the Falcons. “I was frustrated and upset at how the game was going for my team, and that frustration came out the wrong way.”

Headline from Oct 3, 2005:

Marcus Vick apologizes for obscene gesture"

"I apologize for letting my emotions get the best of me Saturday,” Vick said in a statement issued Sunday by Virginia Tech. “What I did was wrong and I am sorry. My goal is to be a leader of this team and do things the right way.”

I think Michael might have cheated off of baby brother's paper...

The Denver Post and other outlets are reporting that Jay Cutler will be the starting quarterback from here on out for the Denver Broncos. While not that surprising of an announcement, it does make Denver the 13th team this season to play at least one game with a different starting quarterback from the season opener because of either injury or coaches decision. The Plummer/Cutler combo joins:

Miami: Culpepper/Harrington
Jacksonville: Leftwich/Garrard
Kansas City: Green/Huard/Green
Oakland: Brooks/Walter/Brooks
Pittsburgh: Roethlisberger/Batch/Roethlisberger
Dallas: Bledsoe/Romo
Philadelphia: McNabb/Garcia
Washington: Brunell/Campbell
Tampa Bay: Simms/Gradkowski
Seattle: Hasselbeck/Wallace
Arizona: Warner/Leinart
Tennessee: Collins/Young

With this many teams switching their "field general" during the course of the season, is it any wonder that this has been one of the most inconsistent, unpredictable seasons in recent memory?

The only thing shorter than the distance the 49ers needed for a game clinching 1st down was head coach Mike Nolan's dick Sunday afternoon. His decision to kick a chip shot field goal rather than go for the jugular on 4th and inches showed a lack of both a killer instinct and confidence in his players. If the Niners don't make the playoffs this season, they'll look back on that play as the turning point.

When the 3rd quarter ends, some players put 4 fingers up in the error to signify that it's winning time. Eli Manning has a different routine. He prefers to take both hands and wrap them around his neck.

Here's a log of Eli Manning's passes in the 4th quarter:
Incomplete, Intercepted, Incomplete, Incomplete, 4 yard completion, 9 yard completion, Intercepted.

4th quarter line: 2/7 13 yards, 2 INTs.

No wonder Tiki felt like quitting on this team.

LaDanian Tomlinson now has more career TD passes (6) than former #3 overall draft pick, Akili Smith (5)

The Titans have 4 wins on the season. Three of them have come against the NFC East.

Which one was the #2 overall pick again?

Name Att Yds TDs Rec Yds TDs
Bush 109 331 1 64 431 0
Jones-Drew 90 454 6 32 317 2


Including bonuses, Edgerrin James is being compensated roughly $600,000 per game this season. For his work Sunday, he received $150,000 per carry.
