9:15- Reggie Wayne Fumbles and Jason David returns it all the way for a Saints' TD! Get burned by Harrison one play, return a fumble for a TD the next.....
"I really hate it when they run one play or just have the kickoff after a break and then they go to another break. It's like someone giving you a hummer and then stops to answer a cell phone call."- SMED, Amen Smed....Amen.
9:24- Nice clip of someone driving John Madden's bus around the track at Indy. Good times.
When did Joseph Addai turn into Larry Johnson? Good lord this is a lot of carries early. Ugoh gets used by Will Smith and the Colts are punting. Moore runs it back into Indy territory after Hunter Smith out kicks his coverage.
"Al- they use Bush, the use Moore. I say we can use MORE BUSH."- Anon, This thread is slowly turning into 3rd Grade humor, but there's nothing wrong with that.
9:30- Wow, Bob Sanders should have had that pickle on that one. 3rd down and 4 and the Saints run a little trickeration...a reverse to Stecker nets them the first down.
"Bush through the middle."- AM, Sorry I had to.
Another 3rd down attempt for the Saints....Reggie Bush drops a sure first down, and Olindo is back on again....it's good.
"Does Al still think he's fooling us into thinking he's the same height as Madden? It's been 5 years Al. We know you're standing on something."- Student of the Game, I know right? He's standing on like 15 phone books. Madden is Shrek.
Just an FYI that I'll be Live-Blogging the Halftime Show in another thread.
9:41- Andrea gives us a report that African-American College teachers are comparing Tony Dungy's victory to Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. Ummm, it was great for the Black Community, but let's not go overboard here.
Wow....great play by Roman Harper! Turn and karate chop that thing. Another Hunter Smith punt. New Orleans has great field position again.
"Going into commercial of Louisville/Mid Tenn game. Mr Announcer man says "Brohm is coming back on the field to get his team out of the funk they're in" Umm...They have 38 points in the 3rd.I don't believe O is the problem. Great job tonight."- Make It Stick, I'm loving the College updates.....keep them coming. Also, Mr. Announcer Man is a hilarious substitute when you don't know his name
9:48- Keiaho with a hell of a tackle on Reggie Bush. Just shoved the defender into him. Is it just me or is Reggie trying to hard tonight?
"Tony Dungy couldn't get his daughter into a better college?"- Anon, Hahaha....Spellman isn't good enough for you Anon? FYI- They were on the Hillman waiting list.
Great pass down field to Clark and Addai follow it up with a 10 yard run. Anyone else notice that they are turning the volume up and down on the crowd each play? As soon as Al and John go to talk they turn it way down.
Vinatieri hits a FG and we're tied...
10:58- Brees had a rating of 107 in the shotgun in 2006?!?! Goddamn that is ridiculous. Thanks for that stat Madden, and another great point saying that Freeney has been dominated tonight.
Of course....Dwight just blew by the Saints line on the next play.
That's the half......man Football is fun!
10 to 10 Tie!
