My Brownies pulled out another nailbiter this week, although it shouldn’t have been necessary. They were playing the 1-9 Carolina Panthers, fer Chrissake. With Colt McCoy sidelined with an ankle injury (note to Eric Mangini: Train your QBs to play without using their ankles!), former Panther Jake Delhomme got the start. After playing great and building a nice lead in the first half, Jake the Slake tossed his first pass after halftime to a Panther. His second pass of the half was also caught by a Panther, and this one was returned for a touchdown. It was only a barely missed field goal (it hit the left upright) by Kasey with seconds left that allowed us to add a W to our record. Thank goodness they don’t separate the win column into “Good Wins” and “Sloppy Wins”.
