Pouncey and Foote both need surgery and are likely out for the season. At this point it might be slightly less embarrassing for the Steelers to just forfeit all their games.

I was wondering what you thought of Manziel, Gebre.

Never thought I'd see anyone make Cash Newton look humble in comparison.  Wink

And finally, my Pirates make it number 82, and with that, a winning season for the first time in my life. :-)

I know, I was suprised too.  I didn't realize he was alive before the homo sapien ascendance, but perhaps that explains his continually poor performance year after year.

The San Diego Superchargers had a great first half last night against Houston! Then they turned into the Superchokers. Again. Much like they did last year against Denver. I am almost ready to give my Rivers jersey to the Salvation Army.  Sad

Inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this last weekend: Oregon State Beaver alum and longtime Seattle Supersonic, arguably the best defender (and best trash talker) ever to play point guard in the NBA: Gary Payton. Ironically, he claimed recently that he found guarding Michael Jordan easier than guarding John Stockton. His explanation: He could actually get into Jordan's head by trash talking him, whereas Stockton was so quietly resistant to Payton's head games that Payton never could rattle him.

I don't know much about him personally, but if I was his coach, I would only ever let him play first halfs. They should get a second half quarterback to finish out games for him.

"In 2011, he was named one of three finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award for his work with the Rivers of Hope Foundation, an endeavor he and his wife oversaw from 2010-12 to help abandoned and orphaned children. The Foundation raised more than $1,000,000 for the cause through football camps, a 5K Fun Run and personal contributions from Rivers. The Foundation also supported the San Pasqual Academy, a residential education campus designed specifically for foster teens."--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Rivers#Awards_and_honors

And he's a practicing Catholic and dad of six. Must be a pretty good guy! And yes, I'm a little biased because I'm a Chargers fan.

A. He say "aTm" on the side of their helmets and misunderstood what it meant.

Wow! What an incredible game. Coach Saban probably summed it up best when he said to Kevin Sumlin during the post game handshake, “You just took ten years off of my life!”

If someone had told me the final score would be 49-42, I surely would have guessed that A&M would be on the winning end. I said all week that we couldn’t win in a shootout with the Aggies. But the score was misleading. This wasn’t really a shootout, with both teams going back and forth scoring on each possession. We scored 35 unanswered points after initially falling behind 14-0. So, BAMA really dominated much of this game. But the fact is that Johnny Manziel is just that good. I have to credit him. Anyone that can abuse a Nick Saban coached defense two years in a row deserves the hype they receive. And the kid did this to us after almost a year to prepare for him! Sometimes you just have to give credit where credit is due. But in spite of another incredible performance by Manziel, the TIDE prevailed in the end, and that’s all that matters.

Here’s how I graded our performance today:

OFFENSE – A: The penalties and the one costly fumble on the goal line are the only things that kept me from giving us an A+ here. But after the first two possessions, our offense more than found their groove. Tremendous pass protection and excellent run blocking from our offensive line. Remarkable improvement from two weeks ago! So that concern seems to have been answered. O.J. Howard made some huge plays for a freshman, and it was great to see A.J. place confidence in him. And it was wonderful to see Jalston Fowler and Kenyon Drake run the ball so effectively. T.J. Yeldon played great as expected, although it was disappointing to see him draw an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after his touchdown. Uncharacteristic for him, and I doubt if we’ll see him make that mistake again. Nice to see Kenny Bell take one to the house! So glad he decided to stay with the team. I imagine he feels like he made the right choice now. Also, we had great play calling today. Opened it up when we had to, then ran the ball and used up clock when we had a good lead. A.J. McCarron proved that he now deserves to be in the Heisman race. But I’m sure that’s the last thing on his mind. He’ll gladly take another National Championship over the Heisman. The guy epitomizes what it means to be a leader, a winner, and a champion. No doubt that he’s a tremendous “game manager,” but anyone who thinks that’s all he is hasn’t been watching him very much. Keep your “Johnny Football,” as great as he is. I’ll take A.J. McCarron over any QB in the country, without hesitation.

DEFENSE - C: In spite of the poor play in the secondary and 42 points given up overall, our defense played hard and made the necessary adjustments to allow our offense to get the job done. This could actually turn out to be A&M’s lowest scoring game of the entire season. That’s just how potent Manziel and their offense are. Our secondary will definitely improve under Saban. No doubt about that. We have so much talent, just young and inexperienced at spots. But I really don’t think we can accurately assess our defense based on this game. Johnny Manziel is an anomaly. He makes everyone look bad. I don’t think we’ll have the same problems against more conventional QB’s. So don’t focus on the 42 points we gave up today. I don’t think this is indicative of how good our defense really is.

SPECIAL TEAMS - B-: Struggled on kickoffs and returns. But at least we didn’t give up any punt returns or kickoff returns for TD’s. Cody Manziel (umm, Vern, that’s ManDELL thank you!) punted well, as usual. Once again, we didn’t attempt a field goal, so that can’t be assessed. But I think we’ll be fine in that area. Most importantly, our good hands team fielded the onside kick without incident to seal the victory. So we have some things to work on in the special teams department, but we were solid enough overall.

COACHING - A+: I never bought into the talk about Coach Saban having all this time to prepare for Johnny Manziel. There are rare players that come along once in a blue moon who are simply unstoppable. You can have an excellent defensive game plan and perfect schemes, but sometimes a player is just too good to stop. I was prepared for that. But Nick Saban and the coaching staff get an A+ because they figured out a way to beat Texas A&M without stopping Johnny Football. Our offense was our defense today, keeping Manziel on the sidelines to limit his damage just enough. Coach Saban proved his genius once again, demonstrating that he knows how to win games in more ways than one. His ability to keep our team focused after falling behind 14-0 in the blink of an eye is testimony to his leadership. Most teams would have been emotionally devastated and would have caved in. But with Saban at the helm, our players never doubted. The entire coaching staff deserves praise for keeping our players focused and confident today. In spite of all our defensive mistakes and the heroic plays made by Manziel, our coaching staff kept our players focused and kept them fighting. And therefore our defense made huge plays when we had to, and their unfailing effort proved to be enough in the end. Our players have complete faith in the coaches and complete faith in each other, and our coaches have complete faith in the players. That’s a winning combination, the result of the unshakable foundation of confidence and trust that Coach Saban has established at the Capstone.

So, overall… I’m thrilled with this win, and I expect our team to only get better in every area as the season progresses. Don’t overlook Ole Miss, and expect another battle to the wire when we play LSU. But I feel a lot better today than I did two weeks ago.

The bottom line is that today a very good team edged out a great individual. And while individuals win Heismans, teams win championships.  ROLL TIDE!!!

I was scared the whole game, even when we were up 35-14. I knew what Manziel was capable of. Glad we survived.

Slow start where they even fell behind, but the Ducks got up to speed in the second and third quarters and just flew away from Tennessee, outscoring the Volunteers 49-0 in those middle two quarters. For the game, Mariota almost set a record for most passing yards in one game by a Tennessee opponent.

So this is where you guys do that sports thing, eh?

I can't say I know all that much about football but I went to my graduating high school's game today. A little out of my element but surprisingly enjoyable. Wasn't sure what was going on at times but enjoyable nonetheless.

Our team won 28-0.

^After that 95 yard passing play in the 4th quarter I was really thinking there might be a late/great comeback, but it was not to be...  angel

I was scared the whole game, even when we were up 35-14. I knew what Manziel was capable of. Glad we survived.

Congrats. I was pulling for you. Kinda want a Bama/UGA rematch in the SEC title game. And I just dont like Manziel.

Troy had a tackle in the game, and then they went to break so I switched to another channel, and on that one I saw Troy in a shampoo commercial. Troy truly can do it all.  Smiley

Maybe we'll stink and get a good RB. We haven't had a franchise one since Mendenhall Parker Bettis.
