Update [2007-10-28 19:10:18 by River City Rage]: Delayed handoff to Jones-Drew. It doesn't go nearly far enough. Punt time, after the two min warning. We've got the defense that can survive this, but it's going to be tight. We had every chance on that last drive to hold the ball and win the game. A stupid stupid penalty by Pashos might have cost us the game. Sta tuned, it'll be a long two min...
Update [2007-10-28 19:8:34 by River City Rage]:Gray gets sacked way back on the Jaguars 11 yard line. Tampa has used their final time out. It's 3rd and huge. 23 yards.
Update [2007-10-28 19:7:20 by River City Rage]: Illegal man downfield on a huge completion. 2nd and 13.
Update [2007-10-28 19:5:21 by River City Rage]: Greg Jones with an 18 yard short pass. Jones made Derrick Brooks his bitch.
Update [2007-10-28 19:4:14 by River City Rage]: 3rd and 6. Must Convert. Just like every other 3rd down in this game. We have to make this and eat clock. Let's not forget that we're winning.
Update [2007-10-28 19:2:50 by River City Rage]:Jags get the ball on their own 3 yard line. A safety loses the game.
Update [2007-10-28 19:0:1 by River City Rage]:Askew makes a big gain into Jags territory. Now's a bad time to start missing tackles. Very bad time.
Update [2007-10-28 18:58:1 by River City Rage]:What an unreal punt. Huge leg by Podlesh. 76 Yard punt. Just when we needed it. Now it's once again, up to the defense.
Update [2007-10-28 18:54:56 by River City Rage]:Great pass nulled by an offensive pass interference penalty. Short run by Taylor. 2nd and 14. Run by Taylor, 3 yard gain. 3rd and 13. I hate injuries, but I'm glad that we have a chance to get composed before this critical critical converstion.
Update [2007-10-28 18:48:48 by River City Rage]:Garcia overthrows a sure thing touchdown. Jaguars have the ball back on their own 10 yard line. We need some more of that magic from the last drive. Here we go...
Update [2007-10-28 18:47:21 by River City Rage]:Third and 6, must stop!
Update [2007-10-28 18:47:4 by River City Rage]:Reggie Nelson is laying his body out on the line. He just "erased" Joey Galloway. He's a little stunned after the hit, but it's OK. I love Reggie.
Update [2007-10-28 18:44:5 by River City Rage]:Ok, so we're breathing a little bit. Now the defense does their thing (BRING THE KNOCK KNOCK) and we get the ball back and nurse a win. The Bucs have to recognize pass a bit now...right?
Update [2007-10-28 18:42:9 by River City Rage]:SHIT. Matt Jones made the one handed catch in the end zone on a fade route. MY GOD I hate watching him play. He gets to shave his beard though. The play I hate by the Plyaer i despise suddenly puts us in the lead. I love you Matt Jones, I'm sorry for everything I said. I bet Gruden wishes he diddn't throw that flag though, cause he might have gotten that TD overruled.
Update [2007-10-28 18:37:47 by River City Rage]: Ernest Wilford makes an insane catch, of course it'll be challenged. It looks like he got it, barely, but he got it. Possession is good, second foot is inbounds. No way there is enough evidence to do anything but keep the call on the field. It's almost hard to watch this offense right now...it's like operating on the edge of disaster every second of the play. The Cardiac cats had nothing on this bunch.
Update [2007-10-28 18:35:26 by River City Rage]: Long ball for Dennis Northcut is overshot. 3rd and 6. Must convert. Must Convert. Must Convert.
Update [2007-10-28 18:34:2 by River City Rage]:We're attacking the edges, stretch plays, etc. Like I said we should do an hour ago...
Update [2007-10-28 18:33:18 by River City Rage]: OH MY GOD! A completed pass! Reggie Williams. Dennis Northcut get's 5 yards on an end-around. Look at that, two offensive plays with positive gain!
We end the 3rd quarter with a 23-17 lead. Tampa has scored 20 consecutive points. Aaron Glenn is still cramping. Terry Cousin is out with a rib injury. We don't have enough defensive backs to play nickel or dime.
Our offense can't run against nine in the box, but we can't pass because our quarterback is completely ineffective.
About the only good story so far is that our Defense, despite having no help whatsoever, is making plays and getting pressure.
The good news is that we've go 15 min left to play. And a team with as much pride as ours can't end a game like this.
