Extra Points Week 6

Some random thoughts/musings of things sports related. Please forgive me in advance for my rants.

Is it just me or does IND seem to have the 2 minute drill down to an art. Every time they run it, the receiver of a Manning catch always immediately jumps up and ... goes directly to the official and hands them the ball. Then they rush back to the line of scrimmage. Other teams however, seem to lose control when they run the 2 minute drill. Receivers seem so happy at an apparently unexpected catch that they feel obligated to run forward and make a first down gesture or pound their chest-all the while wasting valuable time off the clock. IND does it right, everyone else seems to be show boating and not doing it right.

What is up with the Jets clock management in the MNF game? They gave the ball back to the vikes with 2:03 left when a little game clock management like letting it go down to :01 second before hiking the ball on 3rd down (an incomplete pass no less) would have meant MIN got the ball after the 2 minute warning. Hmmmm

Since when does the World Series have a chance to play games in NOVEMBER? If needed game 7 of the NLCS is scheduled for Sunday Oct 24.

That means games 5, 6 and 7 (if needed) of the WS will be in Nov in that scenario.
Game 5 Mon Nov 1
Game 6 Wed Nov 3
Game 7 Thurs Nov 4
