I'd lean towards Dwayne Washington given that he will get the between-the-tackles load while Riddick gets passing targets. Because it is the Bears, I feel the Lions will get to a lead and play with a lead, which would mean more runs for the Lions, that is my logic. But then, the Rams could also be playing from behind making Tavon Austin a good play as well. It has to be between those 2.
Slightly off topic, but it fits under possible rule changes in the NFL. I wish the NFL rules committee would modify the roughing the passer penalty & face mask penalty a little bit.
I'm not advocating for late hits, or pile driving a QB, or even head hunting. Just that incidental contact that brushes a face mask really isn't worth 15 yards every time.
I'm not trying to change the topic here at all. Just give LBs, DEs, & safeties a break sometimes refs.
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
