Well, the Saints tried to make a game of it, but Brees ended up making too many mistakes, so my wonderful "why didn't they go for 2 each time when they were down 16-0?" story was completely forgotten about in favour of the "geez, probably shouldn't get pinned in the end zone and make a stupid intentional grounding throw 'cause it's alllllll downhill from there" story.
I have no problems with the Bears winning, mind...I was just hoping for a WEE bit more excitement. That 9-0 stretch really had me concerned I was wasting my time!
Time for the AFC game... Hmm, when was the last time "60 Minutes" DIDN'T air? (Probably a Super Sunday? I can't remember a prime time championship game before tonight....but then again, my memory IS going...)
Nothing personal, but I'll continue to pick against them :-)
I'm pretty sure that your continued picking against them is what has propelled them to the Super Bowl.
I never would have guessed the game to look like that. I thought the Bears would win, but that it would be low scoring and close. If you told be the score would end at 39-14, I would have assumed the Saints ripped the Bears apart.
Wasn't a punt returned for 108 yards, but a field goal. Looked like McAllister was just going to go down at first and probably did not even know if what he was doing was legal. Full credit to him for running it all the way back, though!!!
