Stuart Fraser: Ah! Now we know where Marvin Harrison is. According to Dick Enberg, he’s throwing challenge flags at Paul Brown. Seems a strange thing for a Colts receiver to do whilst injured, but everybody’s gotta have hobbies, I guess.

Aaron Schatz: That’s okay, Jim Nantz just said that Carolina had to get to the 47 of the Patriots. The Patriots are not in this game, Jim.

Doug Farrar: If you had to listen to Phil Simms blather on for three hours with no hope of escape, you’d wish you were elsewhere, too.

Aaron Schatz: Phil is now asking why nobody copies the way Bill Polian has built the Colts. Yes, Phil, I’m always thinking, “Why don’t other teams draft one of the five best quarterbacks who ever lived?”

Stuart Fraser: To be fair, Polian’s method worked in Buffalo, too. So it doesn’t need a top-five ever quarterback — any generic Hall of Fame guy will do.

Aaron Schatz: On behalf of Houston Gamblers fans everywhere, I say: “Touché.”


...
Aaron Schatz: How on earth do the Redskins not cover Mike Vrabel in the end zone?

Stuart Fraser: All I know is that one of my most common notes on red zone pass plays is “the tight end, cover the tight end!” ... I assume that part of all this non-covering of tight ends is due to the fiendish and nefarious scheming of offensive coordinators, and their dread lieutenants, quarterbacks, to get them open.

Mike Tanier: In goal-to-go situations, defenders have an almost impossible task. Linebackers have to aggressively attack the run, then cover the pass as their second responsibility. The tight end play works because no defensive coordinator can say “screw the run, just make sure the tight end doesn’t get open.” If they did, that team would give up 50 one-yard rushing touchdowns per year.

Aaron Schatz: The Patriots are winning by so many points that they just brought in Eric Gagne at quarterback.

Doug Farrar: Mon Dieu!
