Man, I want to hear the call.

Also, WOO!

I scared about ten people out of my store today when Bryant hit that field goal I was wooping it up so much. Damn its been an excellent day. And yes, im sure Gene Deckerhoff went absolutely insane when it went through, just as every bucs fan did.

Not to take any credit away from the Bucs, but how epic was Brian Westbrook's TD that put Philly on top? He ran through that whole defense.

Easily one of the top two or three plays of the year so far. WOW.

And Bryant's kick was unbelievable. IMO it was better than Elam's record-tying boot.

more impressive when you consider that Bryant hit his at sea level whereas Elam made his kick at 5,280 ft of altitude

And Tom Dempsey's was made with a gusty wind at his back.

And a half-of a foot. That's right, Mr. Dempsey only had 1/2 of a foot on his kicking leg.

On top of that drama, Lawrence Tynes of the Chiefs hits a 53 yd. FG to win it - exciting day in the NFL.

Now if Dallas can only beat the Giants, it will be a great weekend!

I was screaming so loud. It was a great day. I even had the relatives from Tampa watching it over the house. When he lined up for that, given his track record this year, I said that we would be better off just letting Grad throw it up and hope for the best. Man, someone knew something I didn't. Not to take away from this situation and good times, but with all the turnovers and defensive TDs, this shouldn't be down to that field goal to win it. Also, did the defense forget how to tackle or to defend dump passes? What also gets me is that it's not a top NFL story on some sites. They are more hard up on the Chiefs winning kick.

But congrats Matt!

I know right? That's insane.

Okay, yes, the Chiefs beat the Chargers on a game-winning FG from 53 yds out. But hey...my boys ALMOST let the game get away from them AGAIN after Westbrook ran through EVERYBODY. But boy, if ever there was a time where the football gods were to shine on someone, I'm sure glad it was my boys, especially against the Eagles (fellow Buc fans know the history between these two teams--bout time thy linked up down in TAMPA), and boy--I tell you, I saw the re-cap, and that kick was N-FREAKING-BELIEVEABLE. It would have been good from about sixty FIVE yds...it cleared the goal post by about 3 or 4 yds it looked like. I bout jumped out my ceiling when I saw that--considering I was getting the Atlanta-Pittsburgh game up here (sucks not having cable).

By the way, hormome (and bucfan56), 3 December is THAT MUCH closer now...Steelerville is NOT happy today (hormone, you should know how that goes)...eagerly awaiting the day my cousin and half my family comes up here for that game. It's ON!!! Let the countdown begin...
