Arizona's 4152 receiving yards surrendered was 29th in the NFL for pass defenses. 6.8 yds per attempt was 23rd (worse than the 2014 Jets, playing a bunch of crappy backups all year long). Half of Arizona's (six) games surrendering under 200 passing yards came after Carson Palmer went down, when teams didn't need to pass to stay in the game since the Cardinals offense didn't score 20 points in any game for the rest of the season.
Why would I get hurt? I may think it's a bit out of place for this forum (just being honest) but the last thing I'd be is hurt. And OJ isn't guilty to me. He's just guilty. Oh, and Chad Pennington FTWCPOTY
Well, Hostetler was a good QB not a scrub. It's not like today with free agency: a team can't just draft a good, 3rd round QB and stash him on their roster until he's 32 years old anymore. Besides, back then it wasn't that uncommon for less-than-great QBs to go to (or win) a Super Bowl. Bledsoe may not have been an all time great either, but he was a pro bowl QB Testaverde was a pro bowler in 1996 before he played with the Jets. His season in 1998 was clearly better, though. One of those 7 picks was a meh why not hail mary pass as time expired in the first half of the last game of the season. Couldn't be more meaningless. But I don't know how he was a journeyman QB. He played for 2 teams over the first 11 years of his career, and the first was the Bucs who couldn't get any success out of Steve Young either. He was on a high priced contract that a journeyman doesn't get, which is why they had to wait until after June to be able to afford to cut him (they wanted to go with the far cheaper and younger Eric Zeier instead). I thought I remembered reading (or hearing), at the time, that he would have earned another $1M bonus for 3000 passing yards so Balt benched him mid-game with 2971 in 1997 because they knew they wanted to go in another direction the next year. Can't find an article on it now, though. Anyway Belichick was the one who was pushing so hard for him. The starting job was given to Glenn Foley.
The fix is in. They just didn't realize they were giving away the ending we weren't supposed to know about yet. Like when someone inadvertently tells you who dies in a movie you haven't seen. You should now consider yourself duly prepared.
I forget how fast OJ was in his Bronco. Didn't look too fast on TV at the time. Like he was just cruising. All I remember from watching the chase live is they kept cutting away from the Knicks game to show him driving his stupid white truck. I remember thinking deserved the chair for that alone. It was the freaking finals and we won that game. He could have waited a day and made me miss one of the last 2 games and I wouldn't care. It wouldn't have been as bad if they cut away from the game and I missed the finger roll instead.
Whoa, all I said was OJ wasn't found guilty either (initially, in criminal court). It was to draw an analogy to someone else - someone famous everyone was familiar with - who was guilty and who was found not guilty (and the court case and verdict was kinda famous as well). It was not to equate Peterson's method of punishing his kid with OJ committing murder. The point (since you asked) is being found not guilty in court doesn't mean someone is not, in fact, guilty. Not to mention, I wasn't even drawing the comparison/analogy to Peterson in the first place. It was in response to the Ray Lewis case.
Add to that the Chargers do seem to choke an awful lot (they were a hair away from being 1-3 by barely getting by Cleveland), and the Chiefs are off to a brutal start at 1-3 that's hard to come back from. Also keep in mind they all have to play each other twice apiece (including Denver) and haven't faced off once yet. They can't all win. No doubt Pittsburgh with Vick (and then a potentially-rusty Roethlisberger when he finally comes back) has an uphill battle as you mention. Plus their schedule is pretty rough. Then again, Baltimore is off to a terrible start themselves, and is lucky to not be 0-4. I don't see 2 teams from that division making it in. Could happen, but looks unlikely at the 1/4 mark. Personnel decisions during the season shouldn't be a big factor for the Bills, but the game (and post-game) from this past Sunday aside, Buffalo still mostly has a good team. IT would be sweet if the week 4 loss was the beginning of a lengthy implosion that lasts at least until they're out of the running. What could make it interesting is outside our division we don't play anyone else seen as competition (as of today) for a playoff spot. Our early 3-1 start, our (on paper) favorable schedule, and slower starts and/or injuries of others really puts us in a great position.
