A.L. Casoni presents "Come on Man"

If you are a regular viewer of Monday Night Football, you are familiar with the segment about 20 minutes before kickoff called, "Come On Man." If you aren't, it's just a little segment where each of the broadcasters pick a play from Sunday that was awful, embarrassing, pathetic, what have you. The problem this week was that the segment aired just about 3 hours too early. I was stupid enough to watch the game in its entirety last night, but you know what, I'm glad I did. Because I stayed up until roughly 11:30, I got to witness two of the worst throws an NFL "first round draft choice quaterback" can make. I mean, seriously Brady? Those two deep throws were so far off that you overthrew some guys on the sidelines. The benches are what, 8-10 yards back from the sideline? Dude, you threw the rock over the bench on one of those throws. I really don't want to get in to how bad the offense was last night, but I have to make one comment that is just killing me. The offense is so bad right now that they are throwing bubble screens to Mike Furrey. That's correct, Mike Furrey. He's 32 years old, he was born in 1977, and he's a Pisces. This is also the same dude that was released by the Detroit Lions. He was the leading receiver last night with 6 catches for 30 yards. Want my lock of the weekend early? The over/under of the Browns and Lions game this weekend is 38.5. If you own a home, don't be afraid to bet it. These guys will need 8 quarters to score 39 points, and that's pushing it. Our beloved Brownies have scored like 4 offensive touchdowns in 15 games. How do the guys in Vegas put up a 38.5 point line? The defense played pretty well last night, I have to admit that. Keep in mind they are minus the 2nd or 3rd best player on that defense in D'qwell Jackson who is out for the season. Shaun Rogers is an absolute beast. I think he'll come put blazing on Sunday against his old team Detroit. Wish I could say the same about Ferocious Furrey.
