    10 bucks says Mizzou can't finish a game with a ruptured spleen ... and that's with Mizzou sitting on press row the whole time.

    My old man had to have his spleen removed in high school after he was sandwiched by two blitzing defenders while trying to get a pass off. His high school coach, one of those old, bitter, military tough guys, told him to suck it up and get back in the game. Oddly, this did happen in Podunk, USA, in the 1960s, so I guess I'm fairly lucky. If he doesn't make it, there's no such thing as me. As it is, he's got a big ass scar down the left side of belly.

    Yes, Simms should have let Cadillac Williams remove his damaged spleen on the sideline, or even in the huddle, then come back to lead Tampa to the victory.

    Agreed. Most of us wouldn't finish writing a story with a ruptured spleen, much less finish an NFL game. Guy's obviously tough as nails.

    Jim McMahon once had a lacerated kidney during a game. That sounds painful.

    So I guess when people say Simms is gutless, they really mean it now.

    Simms gets phone-number points, for guts.

    Yet . . . Oklahoma will be happy to line up against him, at any time.

    As for Daddy? I've seen him treat hard-trying service people like shit. Talk about an ego.

    If most of you had to endure a gynecological exam, you'd pass out. It's not pleasant and not for the faint of heart.

    Poor analogy.

    Just sayin'.

    da man, I don't NEED to hold off. I'm not stupid enough to make such a comment without having some knowledge of Bruce Gradkowski.

    Pitt fans are still having nightmares about the guy. :)

    I like Gradkowski, but no way is he ready to be a starting quarterback in the NFL
