Personally I thought it was a very witty way of phrasing an over dramatic statement of being driven to suicidal thoughts by a bad football play.

And it is even funnier to me given the OM's meltdown and how many threads are cropping up that make it seem like posters are enmasse pulling Hemingways.
I know a lot about him read most of his books, drank at his bar in the keys.. Yes I knew about the suicide.. Just did not think it was funny..

most kiddies take these things way to seriously.. they are not getting paid to play, coach of GM the team OR unless they are dumb enough bet and LOSE money on the game, all they have invested is some time on Sundays..

OM after a loss is like 400 women just before their time of the month..

Should be an area (rants) for posting stupid crap, that rational posters do not have to venture into to get quality info about the game or team..

Maybe the conservative Fox will let Hillman play a little more. Lance Ball only touched a blitzers feet on one play, pretty much did an Orton. Hillman can make some things happen on the outlets.

I like Willis but Portis was a top 5 back in the league when he was here.

Willis McGahee is what make's the offense work.

Anyone that wants him benched doesn't understand football very well.

We are so lucky to have him.

key to the comment is. "doesn't understand football very well."

Lots s whinny clowns that think it should be perfection on the filed.

Yet forget there are 11 guys on the other side of the LOS getting paid to take the ball away or hurt you.

Agreed and would love to have his autograph, BUT it can also be said big time players play well in big time games.

Hard not to think we would have been right there at the end without those two mistakes but DT and Manning also gave up the ball.
