"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
The Lions cut kicker Alex Henery on Monday, two weeks after signing him to replace Nate Freese. Henery was 1-of-5 on field goals, including three misses Sunday. Combined, Freese and Henery are 4-of-12 this season.
Jay Feely is flying to Detroit on Monday and is scheduled to to work out for the Liions on Tuesday.
Good luck to Jay.
There ought to be a thread about this...
With the Cowboys leading 26-24 after they shanked an extra point following a TD late in the 4th quarter, there was some entertaining football
- Cards began their last drive with less than 2 minutes and no time outs
- DeMarcus Ware crushed Cards QB John Skelton immediately
- Skelton found Larry Fitzgerald at last on 4th and 15 for 26 yards
- Cards got within field goal range before being pushed back 5 yards by a lineup penalty
-Jay Feely nailed the game-winner from about 48 yards. Sneaked it in the right upright. Crowd goes NUTS, Cards bench jumps around and gets a excessive celebration penalty.
Doesnt matter, because Feely does one of the most impressive kickoffs I have ever seen.
He BOOTS IT DOWN the field so far that the Cowboy return man watches it roll into the endzone, except it doesn't...it comes to a dead stop RIGHT BEFORE it crosses the goal line. Right before! That was incredible. Returner picks it up, is immediately clobbered, game over.
