  1. Cowboys S Gerald Sensabaugh intercepted a pass and blocked a field goal that turned into a touchdown.


    Both were awesome plays. It was a diving INT and he just leapt clean over the Vikes’ blockers and blocked that FG attempt.

  2. “DE Ray Edwards wasn’t pleased with his performance in his first game with the Falcons.”

    But I’m sure he was pleased with his performance in the boxing ring…Nice focus on football.

    That’s exactly why the Vikings dumped his overrated ass.

  3. Classic ESPN for you! I was watching this morning, trying to catch some highlights from the Denver/ Seattle game. Tebow had several decent plays, yet the ONE & only highlight that was shown was Tebow fumbling! He had a few plays of over 15 – 20 yards. Not 1 was shown.

  4. Hey jim harbaugh..I hope you have something up your sleeve I’m really not looking forward to another down yr…let’s give mike brown a call?

  5. @ jjbadd:

    No kidding — it’s unbelievable how much editorial slant ESPN runs out non-stop while purporting to be simply reporting the facts.

    ESPN will say QB X (who went 10-19, 117 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) put up a very impressive performance – and will focus on the 1 TD pass in the 3rd quarter.

    Similarly, but conversely – ESPN will proclaim that QB Y (who went 14-21, 198 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 1 F), really “struggled” in his debut with Team Z – and will then show the one fumble and the one pick that resulted from a tipped pass.

    ESPN is awful in terms of conveying the facts in neutral fashion. So agenda-driven — glad to know some out there can see straight through it.

  6. New offensive line coach Tom Cable’s zone blocking scheme could muster only 18 rushing yards with the starters on the field.

    OT James Carpenter couldn’t block a girl scout, Seahawks need to figure out the right side of that O-Line.
