Interesting tidbit--if someone with a crystal ball told me that one quarterback would throw for three touchdowns and the other would have two interceptions, one running back would run for 100 yards and the other would score twice, and one kicker would miss while the other hit, and there would be a single defensive touchdown, I still would have guessed the outcome completely wrong.
I liked Miami last night. I like Culpepper, I think Batch sucks, and if anyone is going to score twice, I thought it would be Verron Hayes. I would have guessed the final was 28-17 Miami, not the other way around.
All in all, it was a great game, especially once it picked up the pace in the 2nd quarter.
- In Pittsburgh's offense, Charlie Batch is a great backup.
- If Willie Parker carries the rock 30 times a game this year, he'll get killed around week 12.
- Chris Chambers drops 70% of everything thrown at him.
- Culpepper is still hard to take down, but equally easy to confuse.
- Miami has a very, very good 3rd WR/Kick returner.
- I don't think Ronnie Brown is as strong as advertised--then again, it was against Pittsburgh.
- Saban got screwed by an ignored challenge. Serves him right for being sheepish about throwing it.
- I love listening to Martina McBride sing the National Anthem.
