The shot of the year belongs to Virginia high schooler Marvey'o Otey. I don't think we've come close to the ceiling of what's really possible within the industry of amazing basketball shots, but Otey has left the factory with clothes covered soot, someone else's lunch pail, and a promotion to executive management. There's a lot to take in here. Perhaps most importantly, the official scorer had to attribute a three-point bucket to a guy who wasn't even in the room.
Idea: the MORTIFIED MICHIGAN PUNTER isn't just one guy. Like Dr. Who, he's a character represented by a series of actors. Stafford is a quarterback, of course, but like Dr. Who, the continuity is likely to change, and all that really matters is that he's a goofy white dude.
I've seen about a half-dozen episodes of Dr. Who and I hated them.
Eagles-Lions was sort of a disaster, albeit a really entertaining one. The weather conditions were so hostile that through the first three quarters, neither team even tried to kick through the uprights. Not even for an extra point. They went for two every time. It was sort of a big deal, then, when the Lions finally decided that a field goal was worth a try.
It kind of amuses me that almost everyone in the shot is using his feet to sweep away the snow, and the only one who uses his hands is the kicker. Anyway, this is why you should never attempt things that are difficult.
Tony Romo is making it really tough for me here. In most circumstances, I'm a enthusiastic proponent of going for it on fourth down once you're on the other side of the 50. Fourth and nine at the 41 is a little dicey, but if my offense is capable of pushing the ball and my defense is total animal trash, I'm absolutely going for it.
This was really close to intentional grounding, though. If you told me it was, I wouldn't object. Earning that penalty on fourth down is punting against yourself, figuratively speaking. Hey, y'all wanna see what it looks like when you punt against yourself, literally speaking?
WORST PUNT EVER
