Arena football, the Wal-Mart brand of professional football.

However... better than watching the Pats and Eagles in the Super Bowl.

At least we'll be watching it next year.

Redskins vs. Colts

Yeah I won't be watching the super bowl this year, but I will be drinking heavily and calling eagles fans to tell them they still can't win it after the Pats dominate them.

final.....31-20 Pats with or without T.O.'s punk ass

Instead of hatred for the teams playing, I just watched with a feeling ofawe because I saw four teams play hard and solid football without every player trying to make a tackle that would be on a highlight reel. Tacklers hit people hard with the purpose of "knocking them down" and not with the purpose of making the his so spectacular that they could be interviewed after the game so that they could say that it was "making a statement".

I saw Atlanta's tight end catch balls in traffic and break tackles and block effectively on run plays. He also ran deep patterns. I don't see a lot of that with the Redskins.

I saw every team have a lead back (fullback, H-back) take linemen and linebvackers to the ground on running plays. That doesn't happen reliably in Redskin games.

I saw Dorsey Levens give second and third and fourth effort to get a TD. He makes less than $1M per year and plays only in special situations. He does not have a $50M contract and go down with initial contact.

I saw safeties for Philly, New England and Pitts actually close on open receivers and knock the ball away instead of trying to take their heads off.

I saw all four teams generate a rush on the passer from the interior of the defensive line formation and not have to rely on outside blitzes to make the QB squirm.

And I saw offensive lines - all four of them - who were very effective. Not what I was used to seeing all season.

And that is why I was watching four teams play today that were not wearing burgandy and gold. Until the Skins close that "performance gap" - as opposed to the publicity gap - I'm afraid I will continue to spend my January and February weekends watching other NFL teams.

My thoughts on the games, I'm not surprised by either outcome. Philly played like a team on a mission. Sure they miss Owens but not by much. Everyone has stepped up to fill his void, and the D has really stepped up in the playoffs. Atlanta was simply overmatched. Vick still can't beat anyone with his arm and they have nobody that scares you at WR.

As for the Patriots what else can you say? They own January. If they wrap up another SB win they're going to be in some elite company as a team. And how about Brady? Another SB win and he will have 3 rings at the age of 27, unbelievable! What else can you say about Belichick? If he takes home 3 rings in 4 years let's just put him in the Hall right now. Hard to believe that was the #1 D in the league out there yesterday. The Patriots carved up the Steelers, Big Ben looked like a rookie and the Steelers just made too many crucial mistakes. The fade pass to Burress on 2nd down was a horrible call IMO. Ram it up the gut with Bettis 3 times, and they probably should have gone for it on 4th down.

Should be a good Super Bowl!

Matty:

It should indeed be a good Super Bowl. As I was watching on Sunday with temperatures in Philly and Pitts down in the teens with the wind howling, I said to my son who was watching the game with me:

"Danny Boy is watching this game in his family roon where the temperature is 70 degrees and the only wind is from the home heating system. I wonder if he is frustrated enough by sitting home and watching these games on TV enough to study how all of these clubs build franchises or if he's sitting there living in the delusion that the Redskins were one player away from these championship games?"

I think we'll have a good indication of his thinking sometime around the first week of March.

When I was watching the games I kept thinking this is why football rocks. Football in January, the brutally cold weather, seeing the player's breath, hard hits, players jawing at each other after every play, guys playing their hearts out, etc. Gotta love it!
