OK -- I have a quick question.

that pass to Moss, that was dropped, then lateraled back to Brady, and thrown for a TD .... why was that legal? i mean, obviously it was since no whistles or flags ... but I guess I am not aware of that rule?

I was thinking it'd be a dead ball.

can someone fill me in.

TIA,

tcs

I didn't see the game, but Moss must have dropped the pass behind the line of scrimmage. If the ball is thrown in a forward motion but stays behind that line and the receiver drops it, it's still a live ball. It's treated as if it were a lateral. The opposing team can recover it. I'm going to have to see this one on SportsCenter tonight.

thanks Square ... that would have been it then.

during half time of the Indy game, the commentators said something about a fumble ... so that would pretty much be the same .... it was behind the line though, and they did say something about a lateral.

it's like he sorta caught it, dropped it, it bounced back to his hands then tossed back to Brady.

It'll definitely be on the highlights.

You're welcome, tcs. Just hope I got that right.

The Pats have had more than their share of good fortune this season. I don't think any team can go undefeated through 13 games without an element of positive luck. Last week's game against the Ravens would be example #1. My former employer is 13 and 0! No, I didn't play, but used to (sometimes) kick 45 yard field goals with a stiff wind at my back in the old Schaeffer Stadium on my lunch breaks.

OK, Pats 34 - Steelers 13, but I was close though! I am looking forward towards a 60 Burger next week against those wonderful high flying J-E-T-S! Pats 65 J-E-T-S 10

Listening to ESPN radio today I heard the comment about how the Patriots devised a special game designed to burn the clueless poor soul who shot off his giganto yappo regarding how The Steelers were gonna clock them. I don't doubt that a bit. Didn't get to see the game, though. I do like Belechick's comment as well! "We've faced a number of defensive backs who are a damn sight better than him!"

Well, they made him look like a blabbering idiot that's for sure. I hated to see my beloved Steelers floundering like that but you have to take your hats off to the Pats. I can only hope that they are setting themselves up for a big letdown when they face the Colts in the championship game.
Being the romantic that I am I would also like to see Farve stick it to them in AZ.
