It's almost impossible for Smith to get more points than Delhomme unless Delhomme throws a ton of picks or Smith scores on a reverse or something like that. I think the 1 point lead is safe.

It's tough, but far from impossible. If Smith accounts for most of the passing yardage, plus Delhomme tosses a couple picks, you could see Smith score more points. If Smith gets 100 yards receiving, that's five points, but if Delhomme only tosses for 200 total that's only four points. One or two picks, and there you go.

The key is that Delhomme can't throw TD passes to anyone OTHER than Smith.

ok, then I change my comment from "almost impossible" to "highly improbable".

Which reminds me...

We saw a commerical for a new action flick coming up, and it made me think...

At what point will they finally realize that it is NOT "Mission: Impossible," and change the name of the movies to "Mission: Really Friggin' Difficult"?

Yep. I need a bad day from Delhomme and a good day from Smith. Or a trick play RB touchdown pass or a quadruple reverse to Smith performed twice and I'm in!

But a 3-7 record looks to be the Stone Cold Lead Pipe Lock for this week.

Time for an avatar change. Gnats like beer too you know.

I have not yet started watching the game (it's on Tivo), but here are the current scores. I've still got a long way to go.....

Uh, Walker... you have like five weeks to go. Those are scores from Week 5.
