Re: Football 2013-2014

Seahawks were full clown shoes today, but still managed to pull out the win.  Their place kicker got absolutely blown up trying to make a tackle, so the punter had to step in for field goal duty.  Only problem is that the punter is the usual place holder for the field goal unit,  so a guy that hadn't done that since college had to do it.

So with two seconds left in the half, they try a field goal, and the inevitable happened.  Muffed place, guy tries to get up and run with it, then as he's being tackled, instead of just taking the hit, he tries to grenade lob it to someone else.  It's picked up and run back 75 yards for a TD.  I could year "Yackity Sax" being played, somewhere.

They also dropped the ball all over the field, something they typically don't do.   Anyway, they managed to win despite not playing well.  So that's good.

Re: Football 2013-2014

And, in other news, after a brilliant loss to Stanford, my Huskies got run over by Oregon, and Stanford goes out and gets beat by Utah.

Stanford got beat by Utah,I did not think they were that good,sounds like the Seahawks had an exciting end of game.

The Pack continues to get better and better even with all the injuries. If the Offensive line was playing better they'd be a powerhouse.

Re: Football 2013-2014

I would be remis if I didn't say something about  the passing of Don James this last Sunday.  That guy basically built Husky football. He is the guy that gave us Nick Saban, Gary Pinkle, and Warren Moon.  We called him "The Dawgfather" for a reason, and his shoes have yet to be appropriately filled.

He sounds like he was a good coach he really had some winners on his teams.

Back in the day, Sports Illustrated did a "Top 3 in Sports" story, where they listed the top three things in various sports categories.   Top 3 outfielders, top 3 NFL teams, etc..

For Top 3 College Football Coaches, they listed

1.  Don James
2.  Don James
3.  Don James

The guy was awesome.

Re: Football 2013-2014

That tells a lot,makes you wonder why they do not go too the pro teams,though that could be a mistake for a lot of people by putting a lot of pressure on them.

Re: Football 2013-2014

When he left Kent State (where he mentored Saban) for Washington, he built a complete college program, and was legendary for his disciplined approach to the game.   I don't think his style would have translated to the pros, but it was perfect for turning high school kids into pro-ready athletes.

When he retired, he simply quit coaching, period.    No media, no consulting, just hanging out.  "Holy crap, that's Don James!"

The guy was an institution.

Re: Football 2013-2014

They had a really good coach here at Fresno state ,he sent a lot of players too the pro's I do not remember his name as I never followed their team. The people here really carred a lot about him he has been retired over the last couple of years. I followed the Stanford team because I lived around that area so long.

Re: Football 2013-2014

I never ceased to be amazed at the lengths the media goes through to pump up Virginia Tech.  The get gut stomped by Alabama, then win six in a row against the weakest schedule in history, and all of a sudden they're #16.

Right now they're getting beaten at home by Duke, though, so that makes me laugh.

Re: Football 2013-2014

I generally do, but the media is a significant factor in deciding who gets to play in the "national championship" game.   I'm glad this is the last year of the disaster.

It's not really even the polling.  It's their attitude about it.  The Hokies have a pretty dismal post season record, an equally dismal record against ranked opponents, and they're all shocked SHOCKED whenever they get beat.  And they do it every year, like Mike Vick is still playing for them or something.

Re: Football 2013-2014

sounds like they are playing football politics. That stinks. Your Seahawks should have an easy game mon night,no good qb for the Rams,I guess they were trying too get Brett Farve and Jeff Garcia but no luck there.

Re: Football 2013-2014

I watched the Packers trounce the Vikings it would have been a worse beating but the ref's kept the Vikings in the game with some very questionable calls I noticed one thing the Viking fans booing there team you would never see that in Green Bay and I have lived long enough to see some bad teams and coaches but I would never boo my Packers. Aaron Rogers was throwing darts and this win puts them back on top after the Lions surprised the Cowboys, the 49's were on top of there game in London.

Re: Football 2013-2014

I only got too watch some off the game,so I did not see all the calls as for the fans booing there team that is not something they should be proud of. I could never boo my team for that matter I like Green Bay enough to never boo them! Arron Rodgers is  a great qb.  The niners had a pretty easy time agains the winless jag's.

Re: Football 2013-2014

Sehawks go full clown shoes again and still manage to win.  They're lucky the game is only 60 minutes, because if it was 60 minutes and five seconds they probably would have lost.

I think I could play offensive tackle for them.

I watched the game on ESPN if the Rams had been more productive in the red zone this game would have been a blowout the Rams defense was tenacious

Yep.  The Seahawks are playing without their two starting tackles, but what this showed was that there is absolutely 0 depth at that position.  You and I could play better than the backups did.

I know what the draft is gonna look like, though.  smile
