You have to back your D to be able to hold a team out of FG range for 81 secs - unfortunatly Brady makes a living from these sort of drives - but there is very little you can do apart from make a big play on that last drive.

I just read on an NFL website (I have no link because im making this up) that the Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed to play the New England Patriots in this years AFCC in a game lasting 59:08 as a way of rebalancing the universe.

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

That's funny! I just read where someone referred to it as Clockgate, I think there are some that may be taking this a bit far but that's just my opinion. I'm thinkin the players have the ultimate control as opposed to the clock mangers. The game should've been tucked away at that point with us taking a couple of knees at that point. Coulda, shoulda, woulda!

Cowher mentioned that they didn't call a time out in efforts to rush their kicker. A bad decision? I'm not going to take sides because I doubt we'd be able to run the field in time. That's a decision that he gets paid for, and if it worked we'd be praising him. I back Cowher fully, and we'll just have to prevent ourselves from being in that situation again..
