MNF - Bucs vs Colts

[ #15127 ]
I actually watched the 4th quarter and overtime - one of the more exciting and interesting MNF games ever.

I can't say I agree with the leaping call at the end that allowed a second FG attempt. While technically correct, I have to agree with Madden: the spirit of this rule is to prevent *assisted leaping*, not "run and jumps". I predict a rules change for next season. I also think the Colts were getting away with some blatant holds on the last drive.

Anyway, I'm glad the Sucanners lost - now my team (Green Bay) is in 2nd place, behind a surprisingly good Viking team.

      Speaking of the Bucs and Sox ... Johnny Damon's first-ever concussion came in high school, when a defensive lineman named Warre
