God watching Eli is depressing.
 
Depressing because he throws into triple coverage and nearly has it picked off  on one play and then throws a TD on the next play?
 
Or depressing because this clueless shitheel beat the Patriots not once but twice in the Super Bowl?

Apparently, the TV-driven imperative that either DET or DAL had to play an AFC opponent on Thanksgiving yielded to the competition-driven imperative that only divisional games are played on Thursdays. That's a good thing -- how often does a pro sports league subordinate its broadcast partners interests in the name of fair play? Kudos to the NFL -- they got something right.
The bigger issue was the Detroit had to play an AFC team in odd years and Dallas in even years. Therefore, the only options would have been Miami or Buffalo. Neither were appealing for a national television game.

Dallas hosted Oakland last year so it's hard to make that argument

Holy fuck.
 
Yeah, I agree with Collinsworth. I think that's the best catch I've ever seen.
 
I can't even wrap my mind around how far back he reached to catch that one handed.

That is catch was absolutely fucking bonkers.  Collinsworth isn't being hyperbolic when he says it might be the greatest catch he's ever seen.  I didn't even consider the possibility of him catching that ball as the play was happening.

Odell's hands and body control are as good as anyone I've ever seen. I would like to test those gloves though.

Which was one reason why they changed the rules. The only other option was the San Diego Chargers.

Oh FFS. 2 officials standing next to the play, and the guy across the field throws the flag.
 
Edit: Fucking awesome that they called him out for flopping.

Guy is wide open and he throws it that high. We lost 2 SBs to this clown, the mind reels.
Dungy at the half said only Tyree's catch was better than Beckhams.
