Ed Norris: The ‘F Bomb’
F as in Flacco.
That pass to Jacoby Jones with seconds left to tie the game and send it to overtime made Saturday’s game the most exciting football game I have ever seen.
Three touchdown passes by Flacco, a pick six by Graham as well as an interception to stop Peyton Manning and allow Justin Tucker to kick the game winning field goal in the sixth period of play.
What else needs to be said? We were discussing this before the show and on breaks and no one could come up with a game more exciting than this one that we had seen.
If you can think of one that rivals or tops Saturday’s win please e-mail or text the show. And I hope the name sticks ( F Bomb) because every big game that turns on a spectacular play has an enduring nickname: The Immaculate Reception; The Miracle in Miami; etc.
After all the criticisms Joe Flacco has weathered, he should have his name on it.
