Exclamation Should the outcome have been a surprise?

We all predicted a blowout...but its the ratbirds..a divisional game against our worst rival.. close game, but the D stepped up on the last drive!

I know what you mean, Koopa, I can't even enjoy the games anymore when they're like this! come on, my nails can't take much more of these edge-of-the-seat games. We're a superbowl contender, we shouldnt have to struggle every game...

The defense definately looked lathargic most of the game. They need to have more intensity next week or Favre could hurt them, even after his 5 pick day. That was way too close. But they won, and that is all that matters.

Miller comes up big again, no surprise. Rookie of the year?

Heath is definatley making a case for ROTY....but I agree; in a HUGE game we usually come out strong..but in games where we "should" win the game..we seem to play down to their level..

thank God for this win, cuz it sure wasnt pretty!

naw he won't get rookie of the year cause he doesn't have the numbers that a lot of other rookies do. it'll probably be ronnie brown cause he's starting to pick it up

Should the outcome have been a surprise? No

With the ref's letting them hold on every pass play and interfere on every one of ours, yes it should have. Thats why ABC pays the big bucks to televise a close game every week.
