Monday Night Football Live-Blog; Saints-Falcons 2nd Half

Monday, December 10, 2007

Our Mike Vick count sits at 12 after Halftime and our score is 17-7. If the Vick count finishes with more than the total points of this game I'm quitting.

I'll see you after PTI at the Half.

"The beatboxer! Blake Lewis!!!"- Tony Kornheiser
"Is that who that was?"- Mike Tirico
"Lost to Jordan in the Finals."- TK
"Of ?"- MT
"
American Idol?"- TK
"Oh okay."- MT
"No the NCAA Regional at Louisville."- TK

Ah this is why I watch every week. Saints ball to start the half and they pick up a quick first down. Brees to Moore for seven on first down, Stecker then runs outside for 17 yards and another first down. Incomplete on first and a run for a few on second, 3rd and five......

Screen to Patten and another first down. Great play for 17 yards. Carney for 8 yards on the first down play action and Stecker picks up the first down. First and Goal Saints. Stecker down to the two.....2nd and Goal....

TOUCHDOWN SAINTS......Brees to Colston on a neat little slant and turn.

24-7 Saints.


I see they're bored with Michael Vick already and they've returned to the Katrina story angle. (Via Ice Cole)

I don't care what angle they go with as long as I hear more of that hot Blake Lewis album!

FYI- Brees is 25-33 for 284 yards and 3 TDs. The Saints would like to play the Falcons every week for the rest of the season.

Jenkins drops it! HARPER TO THE HOUSE!!! Pick 6 for the Saints.....

31-7.


Atlanta is driving, but I think I may have dozed off.

Mike Vick Count: 13


Crumpler gets a catch and makes it 3rd and 2.

"3rd and longs as they're facing now."- Tony Kornheiser as the screen reads 3rd and 2. 4th down and the Falcons go for it....

First down on the run up the middle. Mike Vick Count: 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19

Redman throws to Roddy White in single coverage and White just gave up on the ball. Ladies and Gentlemen your 2007 Atlanta Falcons. Steve Young is in the booth again for the Mike Vick talk....I'll continue the count.....

Vick Count: 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30,

Meanwhile the Falcons are putting together a nice drive. You really don't have to say the name "Mike Vick" every time you mention him....we get who you're talking about. A 4th down incomplete pass gives the ball over to the Saints....

"3rd and longs as they're facing now."- Tony Kornheiser as the screen reads 3rd and 2. Tony said 3rd and 1, not 3rd and long (Via Anon)

Sorry but you're wrong. I went back and he said "3rd and longs." Thanks for commenting though....I need them.

Start of the 4th quarter.....Saints punt. Norwood picks up a huge gain of 45 yards and the Falcons are into Saints territory.

Jaws and Young are talking about Reggie Bush and I don't care what they're saying one bit. Norwood for a first down, but Joe Horn was holding on the play. 4th down and 10 for the Falcons and they throw a 5 yard pass over the middle. Why even play if you're going to throw that crap?

It appears the whole 4th quarter will be about Reggie Bush and how he becomes a Pro.

"And just a yard by Thomas Stecker."- Mike Tirico

Not his name. Saints punt.

As a Falcons fan since 1970, I've seen my share of pathetic teams and pathetic performances- but I don't remember many worse than this one. (Via Johnny B)

They really aren't playing that bad....the play calling has just turned to shit after the first Touchdown.

Redman fumbles after a play action hit, and he's sacked on 3rd down. Falcons punt again.

"He also had Brian's son, Brian's Brother excuse me on the staff."- Mike Tirico on Brian Brohm

Funny mistake.

Falcons recover a fumble on the punt and they're in the Red Zone!!!

TOUCHDOWN FALCONS!!!!!!!! Redman to Jenkins!

31-14.


"How about that fan....he was very excited. Sampling the egg nog at the Holiday Party on the way over."- Mike Tirico

Great shot of Falcons fans who put their glittery Falcons face logo on in the mirror. How can I tell? It's on backwards.

Mike Vick Count: 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41,

Saints are driving by the way.

"You mean the Longest Yard wasn't real?"- Ron Jaworski

That was actually pretty funny.

"You don't want to play this team in the Playoffs if they get to the Playoffs."- Ron Jaworski

Umm, yes I do. They suck. Saints on the road are terrible.

FG Saints......34-14.

Some Hannah Montana talk and Reggie Bush being highly paid will take us to the close. Mare is hurt and that's not good.

Incomplete, Incomplete, and a blast from Scotty Shan. Good hit and incomplete. Saints punt.

Vick Count: 42, and 43.

"Mike Tirico, I don't think we're breaking High School Musical's record tonight."- Scott Van Pelt

Hey that's our game! Our final is 34-14 Saints and I'll see you in Minnesota! Final Vick count....a very unofficial 43.

You'd think by now I'd learn not to watch ATL on Monday night, but I guess that's not the case...

AAAAAAAAGGGGRRRRRHHHHHH. Why are we even talking about Mike Vick's potential as an NFL quarterback when he gets out of prison?

Was he good to begin with? Am I missing something???

No sooner had Mike Tirico said, "There's no football practice in prison" than I turned to my roommate and said, "Hello? What about The Longest Yard?" She glared at me for making a terrible joke.

Ten seconds later, Jaws made the same joke.

Can we sentence these guys to 23 months of Falcons football?

Who wants to start a "euthanize Tony Kornheiser" blog?

The Vick count was just one shy of pushing on the over/under.

And the shots of Reggie Bush in street clothes count fell just short of that.

How do you feel, after 43 shots?
