I am a survivor no more. i was among the 212 victims of last week's action. I managed to fade the biggest upset of the week when the 'can't hold a 4th quarter lead' Saints fell to the Cleveland Browns in their home opener, eliminating 80 of the 212. My heart was torn in two when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers drove down the field on the final drive of the game and failed to score. Mike Evans caught a long pass to put the bucs in field goal range with 8 seconds on the clock, only to come up lame and initiate the 10 second runoff rule for an injured player on a team with no timeouts! I looked on in disbelief as i watched the game end instead of the ball being spiked and Patrick Murray attempt a game winning field goal. So for the second straight year I am booted by an underdog Quarterback in their inaugural start. With this death this column will be coming to an end.
Look for a new column from me next week!
