They haven't been able to run for years now, the rain had little fo do with their lack of run.

Did Joe send a message by throwimg the ball away when play called for him to pass to the super back up? & when he had a qb keeper on 3rd & 1 for the game ending run? Then celebrated and pointed?

I thought it great that he out ran Stewart of all people.

Win is a win. Nice to see a real passing game, even if just for a half.

However, the rain certainly helped. A wet field kept the rushers who need to use speed to turn a corner, Miller, meant that Hurst & Yanda could handle him.

Seems as long as there is a wet field, the line can pass block....

No running game AGAIN, seldom use of the tight ends up the middle, we see what they can do when they do scheme to use the tight ends. Nice..

Blocked punt, so so returns, special teams was not very good.

Defense made the stops when they had to make them, and they really missed Pierce, NOT Mosely. Even so, the secondary continues to be an issue, they can't tackle in open space, I will give them credit for a coverage sack or two and for several hits on the qb that resulted in errant throws.

They beat a good team today, even with the early hole, again, the rain helped...

That is a good team, always had the defense now they have a complete team. There will be some bumps but watch out...

Even back then they knew if you break a bone, scar tissue forms, it leaves the joint susceptible to arthritis, crippling as we age. Same goes for muscle & tissue, ligaments & tedons.

Back then they also knew that trauma to the neck and lower back can not only lead to arthritis but also spinal and cervical stinosis which, as we age, can and likely will cause severe back, neck and shoulder pain.

I am living with that now, at 52, having played the game from the age of 6 until 20. I was told by doctors in my senior year of highschool after spraining my neck by landing on my head trying to jump over a blocker to block a punt, to quit football or face what I am now or worse. I kept on playing until my talent was no longer good enough.

These guys knew, ignored or didn't want to know. The game is that much fun to play.

When you are 20, you feel invincible, and don't care about 30+ years later.

Other than CTE, they knew what they were getting into, they played for the love of the game and stardom back then, today for money as well.
