    Cast your votes now. The score is currently 35-14 with 8 minutes left in the second Q.

    Will these 2 teams hit 100 points combined in the game?

    No.

    However, the Eagles may get 75, by themselves............

    According to the colour commentator: "The knock on Roy Williams is that he doesn't have break away speed"

    WTF? Who the heck says that? He may not have Devin Hester speed, but dude can fly.


    91 yard TD with about 89 of those yards run after catch yards.

    That was absolutely unbelievably unacceptable. This has been was the worst excuse for tackling I've ever seen in my life. I kid you not.

    If I was Marinelli I'd make the D wear their pads the entire week. I'm not talking just in practice. I mean that they aren't allowed to take their pads off for the entire week. Then I'd just hire a bunch of thugs to go around and hit the crap out of them when they least expected it.

    I'd say that might even be conservative. The 1st half #s are absolutely obscene.

    Westbrook
    - 11 rushes for 102 yards, 9.3 average and 2 TDs.
    - 3 catches for 98 yards, 32.7 average and 1 TD
    = 200 all purpose yards and 3 TDs
    (plus 3 other rushers have an additional 45 rushing yards)

    Curtis
    - 9 catches for 205 yards, 22.8 average and 3 TDs

    The Lions have given up 479 yards IN THE FIRST HALF!

    He's on my fantasy team so there is a silver lining in that cloud for me. I'd have preferred to see a Lions victory though.

    Who has McNabb? He could easily throw for over 500 the way things look. Who was the last to do THAT?

    Yeah, I saw that. Nothing like establishing the run to setup the pass.

    Kind of like the Eagles have done. They have worked the play action pass, misdirection plays (fake the run left and then toss right), and screen pass to absolute perfection today.

    He has missed 1 pass all day. He's 14 of 15 passing for 332 yards, 22.1 yards per attempt and 4 TDs with 1 INT.

    I don't know if he'll hit 500 though. I think they'll be doing a lot more running in the 2nd half to eat some clock.

    Kitna actually only has 18 less passing yards than McNabb. Had he hit that throw in the end zone at the end of the half he'd have more than McNabb. He'd also have 3 TDs and 0 INTs and the Lions would only be down 2 scores. But it just didn't happen.

    As it stands, the Lions are only down 3 scores, which is quite amazing considering how insanely bad the D has played.

    Relax, my team sucks. I missed the draft and got a whole bunch of garbage on my team.

    Though a 21 point differential, the Lions are striking thru the air. An early 3rd qtr score by the Lions could keep McNabb throwing.

    Oh, I'll relax after I've won the championship, but it doesn't look like I'll be winning this week. My top WR is out this week, Brees has been garbage and LT hasn't been himself this year. It doesn't help that Curtis is probably going to put up more points than my entire team combined!
