Monday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

November 03, 2008 | Glenn Clark

What an emotional win.On the road, in the division, against an improving team who had EVERYTHING to play for.

AND they had to rally from down 14 in the second half.

What an absolutely remarkable win.

If the Joe Flacco that played in the 2nd half shows up for the rest of the season; this COULD be a playoff team.

Absolutely remarkable win. Nothing else I can say.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…….

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:-If you haven’t checked it out yet; please go to Brilliant!

-I disagree with Drew. I think Troy Smith can help this offense. But the offense has to be on the same page when he gets into the game. It might be his fault, it might be the O-Line’s fault. But they have to get together in those situations.

-Congratulations to Comcast Morning Show Athlete of the Morning Kelly Ward; who had the game winner for Mercy as they beat IND 2-1 yesterday for the C conference title. We love the Mercy Magic!

Talk to you tomorrow.
