Best words to hear as a Steelr fan.  "It's Ravens week".  This is going to be yet another classic.  Hopefully Pittsburgh pullsi t off and moves on.

I don't have a horse in the race but I always live watching these teams play. Defense, to me, is what football is all about. Woodley bringing the wood makes the difference: Pitt 17, Ravens 10.

.....except my kids are huge fans of Yo Gabba Gabba. Perhaps if they did the halftime show? Better still, lock myself in the basement and pretend I didn't hear the utter destruction upstairs.

Ross Evoy is an 8th grader at Clague Middle School in Ann Arbor. His phone number is1-734-660-2341.  Ross enjoys playing football, basketball, and infuriating me

Ive read Mgoblog since December 2009, but Ross destroyed my old account by using it to post random spam such as "Hello, just wanted to say Hello."

so i use this account to flame Ross!

his sister Sam goes to U of M, btw

3 gold stars to anyone who knows who Bradlee Van Pelt is. That's without googling him. He now offers expert coverage of the games on Sky Sports in the UK.

Like Cheesehead said Colorado State QB from a couple of years back. To justify this post he's also the son of Brad Van Pelt LB for MSU back in the day, died of a heart attack two-ish years ago. Grew up with/was kinda friends with my mom too, as a random personal side note

Like you all soda correctly he was the Colorado State QB and broke many records. He was in the NFL for a few years but never got any significant game time. He moved to play with the Leicester Falcons in the UK an I was able to way h him play. He was an absolute beast playing against guys who would struggle to make it against decent high school teams. Btw American football is the fastest growing sport in the UK

God damn Ryan Clark.  I never liked him.  He always whiffs on open tackles and only seems to make "big hits" on defenseless recievers, and just there might have taken Taylor our of the game.  Ugh.

Rule of thumb: Any game that was predicted to be "A CLOSE BATTLE OF TWO GLADIATORS" by the Worldwide leader all week will turn out to be at least a double digit victory for one of the two teams

I know there is an obvious disparity in speed from College to Pros, but doesn't it seem that Mendenhall is as explosive as once was when at Illinois?  Plus, he really doesn't have great vision and reading ability.  I wonder if that is a product of playing in a read option offense, or the fact that he is pretty mediocre.
