A trick play, an interesting fact and stepping aside …While We’re Waiting

Perhaps you’ve seen this making the rounds. Arkansas State tried a fake punt against Miami. It was one of the least successful fake punts you will ever see. The first time you watch it, you will of course follow the path of the ball and see what a terrible pass it is. After the first viewing, turn your attention to the receivers at the bottom of the screen. That was hilarious...

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Browns

The Saints’ offense had about as horrific of a first half as I’ve seen them have in the Sean Payton era. Only an incredible score on a one on one fade jumpball by Jimmy Graham saved what would have otherwise been a 30 minute disaster. The score gave the Saints 10 points with mere seconds left in the half. The second half saw more success, but one has to be left with major regrets...
