The Triumphant Comeback Still A Fast Favorite For Favre

The final ticks in this game were absolutely thrilling, as once again Brett Favre proved that he is one of the most valuable football players under pressure that the sport has ever seen. It’s almost as if something clicks in him when his team is down by double digits, and you can see him churning into action right before your very eyes. Some might call it a hero complex, but by anyone’s standards, Favre has the market cornered on dramatic, victorious finishes.

Favre’s final play found Greg Lewis at the very back tip of the end zone, touching two toes in for a 31 yard touchdown pass at the final breathe of the game. The final score was 27-24 Vikings, making this final stand one of the most meaningful thus far this season. This game started off with two teams who had yet to be defeated, adding even more of a thrill to the overall importance of this victory.

Favre completed 24 of 46 passes for a total of 301 yards on the day. Chester Taylor caught 7 of those passes for a total of 70 yards, while San Diego had quite a bit of action and success on their end of the football. Shaun Hill was good for 15 of 25 completed passes for 195 yards on the day, but also tossed an interception. Vernon Davis grabbed 7 passes for San Diego for a total of 96 yards on the day.

The running game for Favre’s Vikings was also productive, with Adrian Peterson gaining 19 carries for 85 yards on the ground. What a game.

The Buccaneers – Really Glad It’s The Beginning Of The Season?

During these early games, we fans may believe that early loses are natural, and that they give their favorite team a chance to reevaluate, regroup, and refocus their energies on the tasks ahead. For coaches, players, and owners, however, the preseason games were supposed to do that, and these first games tend to be indicative of what’s to come over the remainder of the season. They are the ones out there, so they have to be pessimistic in order to spark a reversal of old habits and self-defeating attitudes. OK, so the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were taken by the Dallas Cowboys at a score of 37-21. What went wrong?

In all actuality, the game was a good one, and if anyone seemed to be slow at the start of it, it would have to be the Cowboys. Romo wound up with 353 passing yards, teaming up most often with Patrick Crayton who caught 4 passes for 135 yards. Roy Williams, formerly of the Detroit Lions, earned praise for his steady effort and opportunistic play, earning a 66 yard touchdown for the Cowboys after slipping through the Bucs secondary and streaking it home.

The Buccaneers head coach sufficed it to say that he and his team knew the Cowboys were play makers before they got into the game, and that they failed to capitalize on many opportunities to both shut down the Cowboys’ offense and turn on their own scoring line. Leftwich gained an honest and hard-fought 276 passing yards for his Bucs, completing 27 of 41 passes, but the end zone so rarely seemed within reach, even after a 16 play offensive drive during the 3rd quarter.

Pinching It Out In OT: The Steelers Take The Titans

This had been projected as a tough game form the start, and it turns out the two teams ended up with a battle of the defenses right to the nail-biting, pulse-pounding end. Both teams were held scoreless throughout the first quarter, with the running game of the Pittsburgh Steelers being foreseen and shut down by the Tennessee Titans for nearly 25 minutes of play. Roethlisberger needed to find a different strategy, and ended up with a winning combination in receivers Ward and Holmes. Once this dynamic passing game was set into motion, Ben was able to throw for 363 yards against the Titans defense, completing 33 of 44 passes.

Though Holmes was good for 131 yards, and Ward for 103, the biggest obstacle on the field continued to elude the team: the end zone. The third quarter would again find both teams with no scoring, and the raging battle between the two defenses continued to hold scoring at bay. With one touchdown and one field goal apiece at the close of regulation play, the stage was set for a 4 and a half minute overtime push toward the ending of the game.

Jeff Reed would win the game for the Pittsburgh Steelers with a field goal kick through the uprights at 4:32 counted on the overtime clock. Once the Steelers were declared the victors and their celebration began, Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher had a few things to say about his teams’ performance and chances for recovery during the remainder of the season. The Titans, according to their coach, are a strong team who missed some vital opportunities and had a field goal blocked, but who are very capable of bouncing right back and winning their remaining games.

Gridiron Excitement – NFL Season Ready To Kick Off

Summer may be coming to a close, but the good news is that the pro-football season is gearing up for another hot season. Just in case you have missed some of the buzz over the weekend, we have some of the news and predictions for some of the hottest NFL teams just for you.

From all accounts, it looks like the New York Giants could have an exceptional year. The Big Blue is experiencing a transition year in terms of their receiver, but there is no faulting the defense.

Provided that Tom Brady can hold up to the task, it looks as though the Pats will have a good year despite the fact that their defense is in transition.

The Minnesota Vikings have definitely attracted some attention, due in no small part to running back Adrian Peterson. The question of whether Brett Favre will be able to carry his load throughout the season is still up in the air, but the defense is in top notch condition. Only time will tell regarding exactly how well the Vikings are able to pull it out this season.

The Chicago Bears have the added benefit of Jay Cutler, who is adding more excitement to the offense than this team has seen in a long time. If the defense can hit the mark as well, this could end up delivering some surprises.

After suffering some knee and back problems last year, Matt Hasselbeck is back at the top of his game, but we’ll have to wait and see exactly what that means for the Seattle Seahawks this year.

Albert Haynesworth is definitely improving the defense for the Washington Redskins. How well they perform this year could come down to whether or not their quarterback, Jason Campbell, is able to pull it off.

No matter which team you’re rooting for this football season, we have all of the tickets you need to satisfy your gridiron thirst. Don’t wait another day to purchase NFL tickets to your favorite team at StubPass.com.

Brett Favre: Proud To Be A Viking

It has been official for a little while now, and the signing of Brett Favre to the Minnesota Vikings for the upcoming 2009-2010 football season has been the driving force of ticket sale surges across the country. Currently, the Vikings are ranked as the #2 best ticket sellers in the country, trumped only by the smash Broadway musical Wicked. Why are we so excited about a twice-retired, 39 year old quarterback?

Brett Favre’s long time ex-team, the Green Bay Packers, with whom he quarterbacked for over 15 years, is holding steady at the #4 position for overall ticket sales volume, as the whole of the country wants to get a feel for the Packers without their longtime front man. Favre retired in 2007, hanging up his Packers jersey and his career on one of the highest notes in history. But then, a yanking, a tugging, a pull at his heart.

Favre came out of retirement in 2008, just in time to sign on with the New York Jets for the 08-09 season. This turned out to be a rather disappointing move for all parties involved, and Favre went back into retirement for the winter and spring months.

The stringent and tedious negotiations of this, his second, post-retirement comeback were finally rewarded with a 2 year contract with the Minnesota Vikings at a cool $25 million. Fans aren’t nearly as worried about his paycheck as they are about his arm, however, and preseason statistics aren’t boding too well. But you just never know what’s coming with this miraculous player until he lays it all out there, so either way, football is looking momentous for Minnesota this year.

And The Punt Is… Stuck On The Crossbars Of The Humungous TV!

Well, OK, maybe we wouldn’t go that far, but at a Dallas Cowboys preseason event, all of the whispers, worries, jokes, and suspicions about the precariously low-perched video screen housing at the brand new, billion-dollar Cowboy’s Stadium were breathed new life. Whether it was just a little gust from the gods, an astoundingly fit A.J. Trapasso, or one isolated though predictable coincidence, a punt was actually hooded by the enormous video screen casing and redirected toward the ground at midfield.

How do you call that one, ref? The consensus is that referees will never have to deal with this ever-so-slightly-obvious-and-frighteningly-avoidable design choice during the regular season, as the president of the NFL has announced that he will be present for the preseason game being contested on the Cowboy’s home turf against San Francisco on Saturday.

We have to believe, as fans, that the entire game of football, all of its officiating rules, video replay systems, interference calls, and attention will not change because one stadium owner is allowed to hang his pricey, elaborate monitor too low over the field. We want to see the Cowboy’s recognized for what they do best, not for what their stadium contributes to the bloopers shows each year. Surely, this will not stand, or hang, very much longer.

On another note, the new Cowboy’s Stadium is a modern marvel, a beautiful facility with, seemingly, no other faults. The team and management are gearing up for what looks to be an exciting and very challenging season, and fans are getting ready to christen this new building in classic Texas style. For those of you who don’t know what style that is, just think Big. Everything is bigger in Texas, from the hats to the egos to the jumbotron monitors. Fans get your Dallas Cowboys tickets soon, it will be an event to remember!
