Has Jake Long really been this mediocre that the Miami paper is calling him out?

I don't watch them enough but last season ProFootballFocus had him outside their top 20 for pass blocking efficiency. He was playing through a couple of injuries though.

This season the most recent rankings I can find are from week 5 and at that time PFF had Long ranked 43rd among offensive tackles. I doubt he has been that bad but I agree with that article, I don't see how you can give him $10M/yr and $40M+ guaranteed on a long-term deal. At the same time though, you can't just let him walk either. Tough decision coming up for the Dolphins.

Odd Game Scores, Weeks 10 & 11:

Week 10:

Dallas 38, Philadelphia 23
This is the game where Michael Vick got hurt and Nick Foles came in to only marginally more efficiently run the offense. Alex Henery missed a late extra point, so this gets on the list as the 13th occurrence....Most recently was a 2008 MNF matchup between the Buccaneers and Panthers in Charlotte. Jake Delhomme only had to go 14 for 20, as both Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams went over 100 yards rushing, while Steve Smith had 9 grabs for 117 yards. On the other side Jeff Garcia was over 300 yards, 200 of them going to Antonio Bryant (along with 2 TD's), but failed to get to 100 yards rushing, as the Panthers were at 299...The Patriots were involved in three straight cases, twice in 1969 as the Boston Patriots. They lost to Oakland on September 28, and beat Miami on November 30. In beating the Dolphins, they only needed 10 first downs and 216 total yards to score 38 points, helped by a safety. Patriots QB Mike Taliaferro completed just 8 of 17 passes for 159 yards, but 3 were touchdowns. In 1984, now as New England Patriots, they erased a 23-0 defecit in the 2nd quarter, and scored 38 unanswered. The offense itself only marginally more efficient, but done so as Tony Eason replaced Steve Grogan (0 for 4), and went 12 for 22 for 125 yards, but helped his own cause by running for a 25-yard TD for their first score.

Denver 36, Carolina 14
This game was the 12th instance in league history, and the first since the Chargers beat the Colts in 2010.

More about that Packers/Eagles game: it was in 1974. John Hadl, former long time Charger, All-Pro, and the last regular NFL QB to wear a number greater than 19.



Hadl had started the season with the Rams, and his last start for them was against the Packers, a game the Rams lost 17-6 (winning Packers QB Jerry Tagge completed 2 of 9 passes, which is better than Derek Anderson completing 2 of 19 passes and winning). The Packers only needed 10 first downs to win. A month later, Hadl was the starting QB for Green Bay having been traded there. After starting 3-0, the Packers lost to the Eagles 36-14, Hadl was 16 for 40 (!) for 237 yards. Eagles QB Mike Broyla was a slightly better 16 of 32 for 138. Eagles kicker Tom Dempsey, post-63 yard field goals for the Saints, missed 2 PAT's to get the odd score.

Tennessee 37, Miami 3
This is the 9th game of its kind, and the first since 2008. On November 16, 2008, the Packers held the Bears to 9 first downs in a 37-3 win...All but one game has occurred since 1992. The only one that was not was a November 1981 game, with the Packers on the wrong end of a crushing to the Tampa Bay Bucs. Doug Williams, later of Super Bowl MVP fame, goes 12 for 23 for 148 yards. Tampa Bay had 4 rushers for over 20 yards, and 5 if you include Williams. James Owens 112 yards led the way, while Ricky Bell, James Wilder and Jim Eckwood added 74 yards among them.

Baltimore 55, Oakland 20
This game was only the 3rd all-time, and the other two are cool ones to talk about.

The first game was on November 19, 1950, which was a NY Giants win over the former AAFC Baltimore Colts (not the same as the Johnny Unitas Colts), in their first season in the NFL. The Giants scored 55 unanswered after falling behind 20-0, and still turned the ball over 6 times. The box score isn't available, but a young Y.A. Tittle threw 2 TD's for the Colts. The Colts only beat the Packers in their lone NFL season before folding, and this is Tittle wearing the unfamiliar #63, in the unfamiliar green and silver of the Baltimore Colts



The other game was Thanksgiving Day 1997: a Lions stomping of the Chicago Bears. Erik Kramer somehow was a Bears QB for 5 years, and got to start a Thanksgiving game. Barry Sanders went for 3 TD's and 167 yards on 19 carries. This was in the midst of his 2000-yard season.



St. Louis 24, San Francisco 24
A tie!!! When I get a tie, it automatically goes to the bottom of the list. The last NFL tie was in 2008, between the Bengals and Eagles in Cincinnati. Ryan Fitzpatrick (29 for 44, 258) and Donny McNabb (28 for 58, 339) could not outduel each other.

The last tie before that was between the Falcons and Steelers in Pittsburgh in 2002. Michael Vick and Tommy Maddox could not decide a winner, but Vick's team fought hard for the tie, as they scored 17 unanswered, the last TD on a 11-yard rush by Vick. The game ended 34-34, and is the 4th highest permutation scored.

In 1997, there were two ties in consecutive weeks. On November 16, the Ravens and Eagles both came into the game with 4 wins and 6 loss, and left the game with 4 wins and 6 losses. Bobby Hoying and Vinny Testaverde were the QB's, and both managed to put up just 10 points in the draw. The Ravens held a 10-3 lead in the 4th quarter, but a 2-yard TD run by Charlie Garner tied the game, and no one scored in OT.

One week later, the Giants and Redskins squared off on Sunday Night Football, and it ended all-square, a 7-7 tie. Gus Frerotte scored a TD and then rammed his head into a wall. The Giants answered with a Chris Calloway TD pass from Chris Calloway.



Frerotte missed the 2nd half, and was replaced by Jeff Hostetler, who went 19 for 41 (!) in 3 quarters and didn't score a point. The Giants didn't score a point off of any of his 3 interception.

This is the first 24-24 tie since the inception of overtime. There were 16 24-24 ties before overtime, the last being in 1969. The 49ers and Cowboys tied on Thanksgiving, which is also the last Thanksgiving Day Tie. The 49ers also tied 24-24 with the Packers in 1965. On the other hand, the Rams have been involved in 7 of the 17 24-24 ties. They previously tied the 49ers in 1954, as well as the Packers (1964), Bears (1960), Cardinals (1953), Vikings (1962), and Colts (1967).

Since the inception of overtime, only 18 games have ended in a tie. The highest scoring tie was a 1964 game between the Oakland Raiders and Boston Patriots, the game ending 43-43. The tied score that has happened the most times is 0-0, the last one being in 1943 between the Giants and Lions in Detroit. They combined for 9 first downs, 214 yards of total offense, and just 1 turnover. The Lions also tied the Cardinals in 1940, and have played in both scoreless ties since 1940. In total, there have been 73 scoreless ties, which is actually the 40th most common score.

The QB with the most ties is this guy with 9:





-----


Week 11:
Cincinnati 28, Kansas City 6
Oddly enough, this one makes it. This is the 17th game to score 28-6. The most recent occurrence was a Week 17 game between the 49ers and Rams. I must have not done it that week, so I guess I can talk about Alex Smith vs. the combination of Keith Null and Kyle Boller. The 49ers only led 7-3 into the 4th quarter, so it was somehow a game.

Atlanta 23, Arizona 19
This was a strange game, Matt Ryan was the first QB to win a game throwing 5 interceptions (and 0 TD's) since Bart Starr 45 years ago. And John Skelton was sat despite having a 13-0 lead. The most recent game was a Ravens win in Houston in 2002. That was David Carr v. Jeff Blake. The Cardinals were also involved in the 2 previous games: a loss to the Giants in 1998, and a win in Detroit in 1999....One playoff game is in the mix: the Bears beat the Redskins in the divisional round of the playoffs, December 30, 1984. Bears punter Dave Finzer took an intentional safety late in the game. Walter Payton threw a TD pass, and QB Steve Fuller only needed to complete 9 passes to not lose the game.

San Francisco 32, Chicago 7
This wasn't very pretty to see, but it does go down as the 5th game to score 32-7. The last time it happened, was the Lions/Bears game on September 14, 1997 of which the Thanksgiving Day 55-20 game was the rematch. The Lions won this one too, Barry Sanders had a similar day that he would later have on Thanksgiving, 19 carries for 161, but no TD's. In 2 games that season, the Lions outscored the Bears 87-27. The Bears trotted out Erik Kramer and Rick Mirer....The other three games: Houston Oilers over Miami Dolphins on November 23, 1969, where Rick Norton threw 5 picks and went 7 for 26 in a loss. Also, Frankford Yellow Jackets over Dayton Triangles on November 27, 1924, and Cleveland Bulldogs over Chicago Cardinals on November 27, 1927.

Houston 43, Jacksonville 37
Nearly another tie, and on top of almost being another tie, the Texans became the first team in NFL history to score twice in overtime. They also scored 43 points for the 2nd time this season, which I'm pretty sure is the first time that's happened. There was only one other 43-37 game, a December 18, 1988 matchup between the Seahawks and LA Raiders at the Coliseum. The Seahawks scored on 9 drives, 4 TD's and 5 field goals. The game was 23-17 at half time, so both teams went 20-20 in the 2nd half. Dave Krieg only needed to complete 19 passes, and Tim Brown - yeah that one - scored his only rushing NFL TD to open the scoring.

Schaub's 527 yards passing is tied for the 2nd most in NFL history. The most was a 554-yard performance from Norm Van Brocklin with the LA Rams over the New York Yanks, on the opening night of the 1951 NFL season (which was a Friday). The Rams won 54-14, and is the only game where Van Brocklin was credited with the start (he and Bob Waterfield 'platooned' at quaterback). The Rams were NFL champions that year.

New England 59, Indianapolis 24
Extra special one, this is the first time this score was acheived, and was a bigger win than the Patriots had over the Dan Orlovsky-led Colts last year. It's tied for the 48th highest permutation. Tom Brady didn't have as good of a day as the last time the Patriots hit 59 points - a 59-0 win over Tennessee in 2009. The Patriots led 45-0 at half, 35 points coming in the 2nd quarter. The Patriots had 619 yards of total offense, and Brady threw 6 TD's...This game was only the 13th time a team hit 59 points, and no score has occurred more than 59-0 (4 times), and only 59-14 is the only other score to happen more than once (3 times).

Ray Lewis could be back in a month or so:

Baltimore getting healthy at the right time? Houston looks vulnerable all of a sudden and the Pats defense still has issues. The AFC looks wide open again.

I don't think Flacco can be trusted on the road so they really need to get home field advantage.

Bucs CB Greg Schiano said CB Eric Wright will be suspended by the league for the next four games for violating PED policy.

Patriots' Jermaine Cunningham has also been suspended 4 games for PEDs.

Seattle is really screwed if they lose both their starting corners to suspensions. I doubt they'll have much luck with the appeals process.

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter
By being suspended four games this season, the guaranteed money in Bucs CB Eric Wright’s contract for next season is now null and void.

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter
Eric Wright will lose $1.7 million this season and he is scheduled to make $7.75 million next season. Suspension could cost him $9.45 mil.

Ouch

Giants signed Kregg Lumpkin and will sign Ryan Torain to replace Andre Brown and Da'rel Scott. Neither will probably play much but I think they both have some talent. Glad to have them in NY.

Bears sign C/G Andre Gurode and release Amobi Okoye.
Doubt Gurode has anything left in tank but with Louis injury the Bears needed to bring in a G

Sucks to see Okoye go but his knee has been problem this year... Was solid for Bears in 2010

Pittsburgh could have Polamalu, Brown and Roethlisberger Sunday.
I belive Polamalu and Brown are questionable and Roethlisberger according to Tomlin is 50/50.
Charlie Batch is getting the snaps in practice early in the week. Dwyer also named starting running back.

Interesting stat I just learned: The Eagles are the only team to not allow a 100-yard rusher this season.

Another interesting stat I just learned: The opposing QBs in the last five Eagles games have QB ratings 120 and higher. That is a NFL first.



Why run when you can pass like crazy?

Not for me.

Local CBS station carries them as the home team, but I live outside of the blackout zone.

That's a good thing. No one outside of Prison TV Network viewers want to see the Raiders pretend to be a professional football team.
