The Good, the Bad and the Ugly VII


















"Told you I can catch!"

Yeah, that's why the Browns lead the NFL in dropped passes.

The Good: Yes, for the 85th straight week, Jamal Lewis. The dude simply runs angry. Derek Anderson continued his impersonation of Bret Saberhagen by not chucking the ball to the other team this time out. The run defense, overall, didn't do their impersonation of a sieve. Shaun Rogers had quite the sequence in the third quarter, stuffing Jacksonville on a 3rd-and-3 then blocking a field goal attempt then recovering the loose ball. We only had one penalty! One!

The Bad: The defense permitted 11 of 20 third down conversions. That's bad. We made Matt Jones into Randy Moss. Also bad. We nearly handed them the game with some classic Martyball in the last minute. Extra bad.

The Ugly: The Steelers getting smacked around by the Giants! HAHAHAHA!

Up next: at home versus The Fucking Ravens.

Steelers-Giants was a tough one. I watched that game and it was very much a defensive struggle won by the team that made the fewest mistakes. That safety was a classic blunder.

Yes, once again our Steelers boldly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. *sigh* Not like it hasn't happened before...

sal, turds that almost won!

spartacus, I would flip to it during commercials and it seemed that Roethlisberger was getting knocked to the turf every single time.

spyderkl, you will find no sympathy here. ;-)

utah, more sports today! Muah!

okjimm, don't get me wrong, ravens in other contexts are fine: Odin's birds, Poe's poem.

LBR, I don't own any brown shoes. ;-)
