**** pansy league. Rg3 should step out of bounds sooner if he doesn't want to get hit.

Yeah, cause it was certainly necessary to slam into him when the only place he could go was out of bounds.

The Colts were 13 of 19 on 3rd down today...converting a number from 7+ yards out. Andrew Luck broke the rookie passing yards record with 433 and would have had at least 50 more yards if not for some terrible drops (including a would-be long TD to T.Y. Hilton). Just an awesome QB, I thought he'd be something special, even I didn't realize how special of a talent he is. In terms of pure talent, he has to rank pretty highly vs. the rest of the league already and I can't imagine what happens after he figures it all out and fully adjusts to the speed of the game. Terrific performance by him and his worst throw (or just about his worst) was the long TD to Hilton...

You have a rookie QB on a team with no defense, no running game and a ton of rookies playing all over the lineup and if the playoffs started today, the Colts are very much in them at 5-3. What a terrific job Luck and Wayne have done this year...

Or if the defense lets up he steps around for a TD.

Could not possibly have happened in that play. The defender could have done nothing and rg3 would have been out. Or he could have nudged him. But lets keep up those needless hits and keep the concussions coming.

So was Ryan Clark's hit "needless" (I haven't read the GDT yet so I apologize if you explained there)?

No, I though Clark's hit was fine (I assume we're talking about the same play, but I'm not a steeler fan so I've only watched a little of the game, including a replay of that). Middle of the field in an attempt to break up a scoring play.

Can we get back to a system where every incomplete pass isn't met with a WR dancing around like someone shoved a hot poker up his butt looking for a flag?

Falcons tempting fate with all these incompletions. Annnnd they convert on the 3rd and 5. Cowboys can't stop anyone.

The anti-clutch team of the league.

The thing that's driving me nuts is these slip screens...a WR catches it in a stacked formation kind of and runs inside towards the linebackers and perhaps even a DE that's in contain (realistic scenario with Luck)...they make me nervous because a lot of teams try to bump our WRs at the line (Wayne is not overly physical, Hilton is a little rookie, Avery is a fringe NFLer), so Luck just slings these things into the WRs chest for minimal gain but a lot of panic for a supposed safe play...don't like them too much, something that I believe is a product of Arians...

The Atlanta win - closer than I thought - does cement a nice little parlay for me today...

Took:
Green Bay -10.5
Texans (moneyline)
Ravens (moneyline)
Bears -4.5
Lions -5.5
Falcons (moneyline)

But without a lot of disposable income, I bet very little amounts for the fun of it...not like I used to...though today would have been a quality gainer...

Cowboys defense is solid. Their offense is anemic, awful, and several other pejoratives.

Yeah, exactly. The Cowboys Defense is about as good as anyone's, especially the last several weeks. The offense is incomprehensibly bad though. And as bad as Romo is with some horrible turnovers, I think the playcalling is the biggest problem with the offense.
