During Green Bay’s last drive against Cincinnati on Sunday, Packer quarterback Brett Favre dropped back to pass as the play was blown dead.

Without warning, a Bengals fan, who had somehow made his way onto the field unnoticed, sneaked up behind Favre and stripped the ball from Favre’s grasp; he then sprinted away, hands held high clutching the ball, chased by Security.

My question:  Why wasn’t this asshole obliterated by whatever team was on the nearest sideline???

Arlington Heights 21, Trimble Tech 0
TCU 23, San Diego State 20
Oklahoma 31, Nebraska 24
LSU 56, North Texas 3
Dallas 34, Arizona 13

Arlington Heights punched its ticket to the playoffs by shutting out the Bulldogs.  They’ll get either Birdville or Azle in two weeks.

The surprise of the weekend was that North Texas got any points at all on Bo Pelini’s defense.  The Tigers basically played reserves the entire game against the Eagles – not that it mattered…

OU-Nebraska was every bit the classic it used to be.  Punch.  Counterpunch.  Left.  Right.  Body blow after body blow.

OU jumped out to a 21-3 lead, then barely stayed ahead of the Huskers as they mounted an hellacious comeback.

Adrian Peterson finally returned to something resembling his form after fighting through an ankle injury for several weeks.  He proved that the Sooners are a lot better team when he’s close to healthy.

TCU went up 23-13 on the San Diego State Aztecs late in the fourth on a Chris Manfredini field goal after TCU’s defense had intercepted Aztec quarterback Kevin O’Connell in the endzone with just over nine minutes left.  Then kicker Peter LoCoco came through with yet another of his “why is this moron still on the team” moments, putting the subsequent kickoff out of bounds and setting up San Diego State on the 40.  The Aztecs scored 90 seconds later.

After recovering the ensuing onside kick, a tough Robert Merrill run on third down just barely netted the first down and secured the Frog win.

TCU now plays for the Mountain West conference championship next week vs. Colorado State.

This was not nearly as big a win as the local pundits were saying it was supposed to be.  Still, I’ll take it – particularly since it netted me my second PFW in three weeks.

Bledsoe was 19 of 24 for 220, and rookie Marion Barber III ran the rock 27 times for 127 yards – the first Dallas back to eclipse the century mark this year.

Julius who?

Anthony Henry picked off one Josh McCown pass and ran it back for a touchdown before leaving the game late with an injury.  Dallas’ defense sacked McCown three times.

It was good for a much needed Dallas win going into the bye week – and another much-needed Perfect Football Weekend.

The PFW will return Friday for another shot at two in a row.
