The bright side of Light not getting suspended this week..

..... is that he was part of the collective sieve that was the New England offensive line today against the Steelers. The hair-puller got beaten badly on at least one of Cassel's fumbles. Even the butt-kissing local sportscasters on the Sports Final show said Light had a bad game. Nice job Matt!. Just think, if he would have gotten suspended like he deserved, he wouldn't have had to play in such nasty New England weather today; he'd have stayed warm and dry and wouldn't have embarrassed himself so badly.
Also in this game, Welker got laid out while coming over the middle. He got shellacked. The guy who hit him got a 15 yard penalty, and you can bet he'll get a much more severe punishment from the League than Light did last week. It was an excessive hit, a tad late, warranting the penalty, yes. But there was no hair pulling, no punching someone who had no helmet on who was walking away from the fight. Still, the Patriots were involved, so you know what that means. Welker didn't appear to be seriously hurt, but I think he left the game.
And finally, I got to see on the local news replay after replay of Randy Moss dropping passes. I can't even tell you how many he dropped, because they replayed them so often and I was laughing too hard (and I never got tired of it). Yes, it was rainy out, but the Steelers' DBs didn't have any problem dropping Cassel's passes in that rain.
Another great day to be a Phins fan in New England.
