Despite completing 83.8 percent of his passes, the highest percentage by a Vikings player (min. 30 attempts) since Fran Tarkenton on Nov. 14, 1976 (83.9 percent), Bradford still finds himself on among the worst QBs in the in Week 12.
Why? It begins with his costly interception with 30 seconds remaining, which decreased the Vikings’ chance to win from 45 percent to 11 percent. Additionally, Bradford’s completion percentage was inflated by an Atlanta Hawks Youth Jersey inordinate number of short passes.
There’s a reason coach Hue Jackson got visibly emotional while trying to describe how the Browns still haven’t won a game this season. Remember, these dudes on bad football teams — coaches, players, executives — they’re all human. And when the wheels start to loosen on a season and eventually fall off, there’s nowhere to hide.
The Browns are one of many teams counting down the days until the season ends.
I still remember a Sunday night game down in Miami when we blew a big lead. It was our sixth loss in seven games. The winning touchdown? The Dolphins caught us in a blitz, and I was left to make the tackle on Ricky Williams. But that didn’t happen. Nope. Instead, I took a stiff-arm to the face as Williams walked in for the score. Good-bye.
I still remember traveling to Chicago in Week 16, with Spurrier promising us an extended “Victory Monday” if Boston Celtics Youth Jersey we won that game — three days off heading into the final week of the season. He threw a carrot out there for us, doing anything to buy a win. Didn’t work. Paul Edinger kicked a game-winning field goal with five seconds left to beat us.
I still remember Week 17, when we got shredded in our final home game by the Eagles. 31-7. In my opinion, Andy Reid called off the dogs in that one. He took it easy on us. Philly could’ve scored 40 or maybe even 50 if they wanted to.
