That’s the only way the Patriots won tonight. I couldn’t even wait until morning to write this.
Baltimore, leading most of the game, needs a first down to win it. They don’t get it.
Baltimore needs to stop New England with 4th and inches to win it. They stop them, but a last second sideline timeout is called just before the snap, negating the amazing stop.
Baltimore needs to stop New England with 4th and inches again to win it. Penalty on NE, replay down.
Baltimore needs to stop New England on 4th and six to win it. Brady runs for a first down.
Pressure, sack, pressure, deflection, penalty, replay down, replay down, replay down… New England inexplicably moves closer and closer to the goal line with under a minute left.
More amazing defense by the Ravens. There’s no way The Patriots can win this game. All Baltimore has to do is not make a mistake to put this contest away. Yet SOMEHOW the dirty, rotten, soulless Patriots get a holding call in their favor and a lucky touchdown pass by Brady ensues which should have been overturned by the officials since the ball was clearly bobbling before the receiver got both feet in.
Did I mention that Brady had one of the worst games I’ve ever seen him play? And I can’t tell you how many times Moss and Welker just plain dropped the ball. Everything was in Baltimore’s favor tonight.
Wait…. wait….. what’s that?!?
Boller throws a 52 yard hail Mary pass as time expires… wait… CAUGHT AT THE 2 YARD LINE!!!!!!!!!….. oh yeah, Belichick sold his soul to the Devil. Tackled at the 2 yard line, game over.
I’m so infuriated that Baltimore lost this game. They had 14 chances to put it away, but starting with the STUPID timeout taken by Baltimore, the Devil in all his infinite cunning evil, incarnate on the field as Bill Belicheat, prevailed.
Coach Dungy once said God doesn’t care about football. I agree, He doesn’t. It’s got to be the Devil that cares, and that’s precisely why New England keeps winning.
I’m totally serious. If you want to see what I mean, watch the last 4 minutes of the 2007 Monday night football game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. Jeez, imagine how mad I’d be if it was the Colts instead of the Ravens.
I’m going to go lay in bed for 7 hours wide awake and then get up and go to work. Good night.
