    With yesterday being the anniversary of Joe Theismann’s injury and Alex Smith also suffering a season ending leg injury, I thought I would pull a Breer and make it all about me:

    I wasn’t much of a football fan when Theismann was hurt. I heard about it and heard how bad it was, but I didn’t see it. Years went by and I kept missing replays of the injury. I either wasn’t watching or wasn’t in the room when it was shown. I remember being in a bar in ‘91 or ‘92 for MNF and they showed the play. It would have been perfect, except I had my back to the TV and turned around to see Taylor waving to the sidelines for help. Finally, in the late 90s or early 2000s, ESPN (or maybe NFLN or the old Classic Sports Network) ran a special titled “The Night Lawrence Taylor Sacked Joe Theismann’s Career.” In the ad for the show, I got to see the injury about 5 times in 60 seconds. That was definitely more than enough viewings.

    I hope ESPN gives us a lot of cut-a-ways to celebs in the crowd*.

    Tessitore will be Grande level insufferable tonight with it being the game of the century and all.

    There’s Jenna Fischer and Goldie Hawn’s kid – stars of the hit series…

    The Celtics have played 16/82 games and granted haven’t looked great at times but the hoop experts have declared  the season over.

    No reason to watch or care. Ditto the Pats. Lucky to get the wildcard and they will get smoked by Pitt or KC.

    Im so glad Fraudway and Felger are helping me so I’m not disappointed.

    Witten just blurts out shit.  Tyreke Hill line up inside! Thanks, I can see.  Then says Cooks has improved as a route runner.  How?  What did he used to do v what does he do now?

    Real good thing they decided to go with an All Star crew for this so I could watch 21 plays and 17 flags already. Well done Men Of Goodell. One more TD and Rams fans are going to start tuning out.

    You can challenge a penalty now?

    I was surprised they could. Technically not challenging the penalty I guess, challenging that the ball was tipped? A normal PI not allowed to challenge.

    I think you can challenge too many men penalties, either the call itself or if they don’t call it

    You can challenge a tipped ball / non-tipped ball. Have seen that a few times to counter a PI.

    You can challenge too many men (or missed too many men) but NOT the play clock violation as the zero is just a reference. Consistent. Why not just allow the challenge of anything/everything? You only get a couple per game. Same thing with MLB and what is/isn’t allowed.

    I’m utterly baffled by the Celtics.

    National or local, Sunday or any other night, I find myself enjoying NFL games more by muting the TV and only putting the sound up to hear penalties.

    I’m with Joe. Bring on the halftime show. The insight I’m sure is unbelievable.

    I have no problem watching a game without sound at a bar but struggle to do it at home. I can’t even watch Sunday night football because Michaels and Collinsworth are so awful.

    That was the first 23-23 halftime ever.  Odd? Sad? No clue? I’m still loving the over.

    What the fuck is with those bizarre animations?  Was that supposed to be And Reid?  The one they did earlier with Brady and Manning was equally bizarre since when does Brady have 20 inch pythons?

    From the shots I’ve seen, Goff’s personality is similar to Peyton Manning. He just grabs the surface, looks at it and ignores everything else. Obviously you need to review the film but lack of interaction leads me to believe he will be throwing teammates under the bus in the future.

    According to Rovell 69% of betters took the over tonight.  Sucks for Vegas.

    Game has pretty much lived up to the hype.

    Nice back to back plays for Hill. Quits on a route then catches a punt inside the five yard line.

    Then a 73 yard TD

    This is already the third highest scoring game in NFL history. The next are 95 and 96. Well within reach.

    So that “Pats/Eagles Super Bowl had the most offense of any NFL game in history” factoid has been obliterated several times now, right?

    Obviously an exciting game, but can Tessitore die already?
