Porter's INT in the Super Bowl. That was the culmination of everything - years of heartache and frustration evaporated into pure joy.
Other plays were great. NFC Championship game INT and Hartley's kick, no doubt. But, the SB INT by Porter brought more sports jubilation than I have ever felt. It ...

I too am wondering how these families are coming up with $2000-$4000 if this is an emergency situation. Did they just happen to have that kind of money lying around? Most American families don't have an extra couple of thousand just sitting there.
The whole thing seems odd, especially the timing....

My son's team went undefeated and won the city championship last year at that level with about 3 defensive variations, I think. The defense was dominating, though, because the boys were aggressive and tackled well and played team ball.
Fundamentals are far more important than scheme, although in ...

I didn't ask what would happen if BOTH QBs go down. Obviously, that is a complete disaster.

And you aren't able to comprehend what I am saying, obviously.
I am not talking about what happens if we lose TWO.
I am asking what happens if we lose ONE and there is no good 3rd option. Will the coaches then cut back the offense in trying to protect the ONE good option that we have?

| Tiger Rant|| With Only Two Viable QBs on the Roster - AlaTiger on 7/3/14 at 9:19 am|
What happens if either Jennings or Harris go down with an injury in camp or early in the season. If we have just one QB that is viable and his is a dual threat QB, does that change the offense considerably?
I guess that we were in that situation last year, but Rivers and Jennings were behind Met...

And, how did Shaq make this list after only 4 years in the league? I mean, he was awesome, but to be named the top 50 of all time after only 4 years is incredible.
So, add Kobe, Wade, and Dirk along with Lebron and Duncan (would make an incredible starting 5 if Wade could play point).
