          Special teams coach needs to be fired. 5 guys on the line both times with the others 10 yards behind them.

            Wow, that was great. Thanks coach, very inspiring. :thumbup:

            You have to wonder though, if that QB can throw like that, and has WR's who can catch like that, what were they doing during the first 59 minutes of the game? :scratchhead:

              Too funny. I like how the rest of the board was completely empty, showing they all clearly avoided the topic until they couldn’t.

              That kicker on the first kick putting a shoulder into someone?

              That other team must be coached by Zook.

                The team in blue acted like they were not even expecting the onside kicks. Clearly a team led by Butters with Zook in charge of special teams!!!

                  lol I couldn't figure out what the hell you were talking about with this post, until I realized it was a reference to the Jeopardy clip (which I hadn't watched yet) rather than the 59-second comeback clip.

                  That Jeopardy clip was sad, but at least those contestants looked like dorks who you wouldn't expect to know anything about football anyway. It would've been much sadder it was a panel of regular-looking dudes who got stumped by those questions.

                  Full disclosure, I did not know the answer to the last one, the Purple People Eaters Defense. That was a little before my time. I recognized the name once he said it, but I wouldn't have been able to come up with it on the spot.

                  All the other ones were absurdly simple, though. It was funny that you could hear lots of WOMEN laughing at them in the audience, I'm sure even they knew some of those answers.

                  I could sort of see the first one catching them offguard, because they may have been thinking what's the point, we're ahead by two scores. But they didn't seem ready for the second one either, and that's just totally inexcusable.

                  Meanwhile I just embarrassed myself by sending that clip to a few youngsters I know, with the caption, "Never give up! Never quit! Never surrender!"

                  Within minutes I get this smartass reply: "Never send me a year-old clip everyone's seen a mil times already!"

                  Sure enough, that video was originally posted on November 15, 2017! :facepalm: I hadn't even thought to check the date, I assumed it was from just last week.

                  Thanks, Coach. You made an ass out of u and me. :kick:
