Let Me Get All Fangirl For A Moment.


It's funny, these last couple of games, going in I wasn't worried at all. Yeah, it sucked that two of our big studs on D were out, but this offense has been putting up points all year. Sure, Ciny can score, but can they score with us for sixty minutes? Guess not. And you know that Denver has nothing on that side of the ball. Don't give me any of that stingey defense crap either. Indy put up thirty-one on the Shit Ponies (mostly in the second half, by the way) and I truly believe we have a stronger offense than the Colts right now. Boy, did we make these games interesting, though. Palpitations, palpitations. Two big second half comebacks in a row, and it makes me think back. You're probably thinking I mean back to the late '70s and early '80s, but that isn't what I mean at all. I've been thinking back to the preseason. Back to when the offense couldn't get into a rythm. They had moments, but Rivers made a young QBs share of mistakes. Things weren't firing quite right, and I wonder why? I know I kept saying something along the lines of our best player in team history not being in the game. I remember thinking that might make the offense roll a little easier. That might take some of the pressure off of young Philip. And now the world knows. After a stretch of games the likes of which no running back has ever imagined to achieve, TBE simply makes opposing teams look as though they are dueling left-handed. I have to give it up to the rest of the boys for hanging in there while key players sit out, and Rivers deserves enormous praise for the presence he has shown, but frankly this is TBE's team and TBE's season. Thank you LaDainian, your shit is tight! Go Bolts!!!

Yes... me too!
Man, that one up-and-over against S.F. (about 1:50 in the video), he leaves at about the 3 yard line, and lands 2 yards deep in the end zone! Wha? Oh, and flys over an O line and D line of non-small guys in the meantime. Some classic highlights in that reel.

Congrats LT!!

ok and one more commentary from the vid...
at the 2 minute mark, (one of) the TD's against Denver, the donkey's safety (Ferguson #25) is not blocked at all, LT makes his cut on the 6 yard line, and is in the End Zone before #25 knows what happened. He got there just in time to lick 21's shoes. Awesome.
