I thought creston got a new job and moved?
Well, I moved about five blocks, yeah
I may still wind up moving to Columbus, OH, but if that happens it won't happen until next year (my wife's a teacher and she can't just up and quit her job, so we could only move during summer break.)
I'll agree that your defense doesn't look as intimidating as Chicago's, but I still think you're doing pretty well. Then again, in the AFC, it doesn't really matter anyways, since I doubt anyone's beating Indy. And with the Pats able to lock up their division even while going 8-8, and slowly getting healthy again, does anyone really want to bet against them in the playoffs? Brady isn't 9-0 in the playoffs for nothing...As for the play calling at the end of the game, yeah that was Palmer's fault but you have to remember this is really really young QB and still need to learn how to play call to run down the clock.
True, and I know he'll learn, but it was still just awful awful clock management, and something I hope his coordinator and head coach are going to sit down with him for, and show him on tape just how badly he screwed that up.
If the Steelers hadn't killed themselves on that final drive with those two monstrous penalties, I would have given them very good odds to tie the game.
Palmer still needs to learn what Manning has learned this year. When you are on the field as an offense, your goal is twofold.
1) Try to score. Obviously.
2) Perhaps even more important, GIVE YOUR DEFENSE TIME TO REST.
It took Manning eight years to figure this out, so Palmer can be forgiven for not realising that so far, especially coming out of USC where defense is considered those really annoying minutes where you aren't throwing touchdowns, but he better learn it at some point. The Bengals defense was running on fumes of the fumes at the end of the game. I wouldn't have given a nickle for their chances in OT.
