With some of the college football rivalry games lately, watching people's Facebook status updates are almost as entertaining as the game itself, particularly right after the game ends. Watching people go insane as Aurbun let the Alabama pull it out and then last night's game when Georgia Tech decided to pass on 4 straight plays againt UGA instead of going with the running game, which was coming alive. So much fun.

The Steelers, playing an important game, are reduced to starting a quarterback with one career pass and a backup who's never thrown a pass in the NFL and who was signed on Thursday. Good luck, Dennis Dixon, against a Ravens D which could have a statistical field day.

VY just drove the Titans 99+ yards in the last two minutes of the game to beat the Cardinals. 3 4th downs converted. Wow.

Unreal end to that game. He's a real NFL QB, methinks.

what about all those that said he would not make it in the nfl? qb's like him just can't play the nfl way. baloney! young's style is young's style. me thinks maybe his statement not too long ago about going to the hall of fame may be not that far off the mark. maybe colt mccoy will kick some nfl tail too. there are some mighty fine qb's in texas. wish graham harrel, formerly of texas tech could be given a chance also. pocket passer? who needs pocket passers? they are boring.

That was a wild final play in regulation in tonight's Steelers/Ravens game. I don't know how the Ravens got onto the field in time for Cundiff to kick it after Flacco fumbled.

The highlights of the Titans/Cardinals game are great. Vince Young's last second pass to win it was Favreian.

Oh, man ... do we have to start using him as an adjective now?
