Easy n Dirty Posted December 12, 2006 Share Posted December 12, 2006 (edited) Had one of the most exciting FF games I've been involved with last night - first round of the playoffs, and I went into the game down 5-1/2 points with Torry Holt going, and my opponent had Muhsin Muhammad. Holt hit the board early, and at halftime Muhammad had yet to touch the ball while Holt had 30 yards and a TD, so I'd taken the lead and was up about 3-1/2 points. I knew it wasn't completely over, but I felt pretty comfortable. The Bears first possession of the thrid quarter was a bad one for me, as Grossman hit Muhammad twice for 36 yards. At this point, I was up by .07 points. The next Bears' possession was even worse, as it ended with a 14-yard TD pass to Muhammad, and at that point I was down, I think by 7.33 points. Holt had yet to touch the ball in the second half (other than a couple drops). When Muhammad scored, I considered throwing my remote through the TV, I was so ticked. Then, in the fourth quarter, Bulger hit Holt for 13 yards on an out, and shortly afterwards, Holt dropped what looked to be a sure TD pass. Once again, I thought about using the remote as a projectile. Couple minutes later, Bulger hits Holt for a 6-yard TD with 5-1/2 minutes left, and I was alone in my den dancing like a damn fool. Still, at this point I was only up by .06, and the Bears were getting the ball. After that, I had to sweat it out, but when Hester returned the ensuing kickoff for a TD it was the best possible outcome for me - Rams get the ball and need to throw it, and the Bears at that point seemed unlikely to throw it again. I had one slight moment of panic when Muhammad recovered the onside kick, but he just fell on it, didn't advance it at all. Holt had one more menaingless catch (meaningless, but a spectacular grab) to give me a 3-point margin of victory. Didn't exactly go down to the wire, but to have 3 lead changes on a Monday night, in a playoff game, was very exciting, especially since the last lead change favored me. Whew!
