    It really one of the best clean hits I've seen. The sad part is that hit would probably draw a flag today, just because you see officials throwing flags for anything that looks too violent even if it is technically legal.

    That really was an amazing job by Bill Cowher and his staff, adapting to all the changes as the season went on. Woodson was a huge part of that defense. They ended up moving Carnell Lake from strong safety to cornerback to cover for the loss of Woodson and it worked.

    They also overhauled the offense on the fly. They had been a power running team focused on handing the ball to Barry Foster in Cowher's previous seasons, but they didn't have a back who was good enough to play that style in 1995, so they switched to more spread formations. O'Donnell wasn't great, but he had fantastic pass protection and a deep group of receivers, so it worked well enough to reach the Super Bowl.

    I swear I read that as "Blair Witch syndrome."

    Teddy Bridgewater cleared to begin practice.
    Vikings have 21 days to activate him or put him on IR.
    There's no way in the world they play him this year do they?
  4. I he can play, why not?
    Vikings are are in nice position to win the division. Case Keenum ain't going to be the guy to deliver it and Bradford has a serious yet undisclosed knee injury.
    Doubt they are calling Kaepernick.

    Bridgewater has been out what a year and a half? Wow.

    If Bridgewater is healed and ready, you may as well play him. The Vikings need to have some certainty at the position.

    I don't see a reason why they wouldn't play him if he is healthy.

    This is a repeat, but I distinctly remember Dick calling the lefty QB out of U-Dub "Scott" Brunell for an entire quarter of a Washington-Chicago season opener when I was in college. In 2005.

    I would be fascinated to find out what goes into the decision making process for a network executive to give Dick Stockton even one game in 2017. He is garbage. Those jobs are golden. What could any executive possibly see in him?

    The executive probably remembers listening to Dick as a kid.
