Going into Monday night football I had a 2 point lead. I was worried that his players Tony Romoand Steve Smith would make up that small margin of error. I had Miles Austin and Ahmad Bradshaw going for my team, so I knew I had a fighting chance on beating the best team in the league.
The game came and went. Romo going down was good but not enough to out weigh Steve Smith's production. If Austin doesn't drop the TD in the 1st quarter then it could have been different. If Bradshaw didn't fumble the ball 2 times it would have been really close.
Ifs and buts were candy and nuts then everyday would be Christmas- Slammin Salmon.
Miles didn't catch that ball and Bradshaw couldn't find the Handel. Hence the loss 116-110. So very close, but no cigar. As much as I hate losing, I really hate non competitive games. I gave the best team in the league a run for the money so I feel that I am not far off.
The Pats game was one I'll always remember. In the end I was with Bill. I felt that even if SD stopped the Pats 4th down conversion. SD would find a way to lose. 45 yard Field goal, oops 50 yard FG from a Kicker that hasn't kicked in a game in a couple months. Yeah it hit the cross bar but it hooked into it. It was wide right from the get. Don't get me wrong in the last 5 min of the game my blood pressure went through the roof and I lost quite a bit of my fingernails. I'll never forget that 1st quarter with those turnovers. Never seen that many bonehead plays in such a short time in a game. Probably never see it again, I hope.
The Moss man cometh. The old gunslinger returns. It all adds up to a huge blowout. I would think that the Pats will not only beat them but make an example of them. Expect vintage Tom and Branch. I am seeing a 45-17 game with it being well in hand by halftime. I may be completely wrong, and there's that whole Halloween thingy. Lets see whom goes bump in the night and who goes running to there parents room. Make room Chilly, there coming and there scared.
