RECORD SETTING DAY
"An unbelievable achievement
...I cannot believe how flawless he was..."
Read on for full story!
The Pittsburg Steelers were ready to take on the Arizona Cardinals in a tight grudge match...so they thought.
"Well this is gonna be a tough battle, not a lot a scoring, but the key to victory will be how Plummer
plays," Coach Cowher said to Field Reporter Mellisa Stark. Although Coach Cowher did not comment after
the loss of 55-10, his face said a thousand words. You ask how? The answer is simple Clinton
Portis, Clinton Portis, Clinton Portis. Besides his name, he racked in 308 yards (New NFL
rushing record in a single game), scored 5 touchdowns, and averaged 5.6 yards a carry.
"This was definitely his (Portis') day," commented Coach McGinnis. "It was his breakout game, if you can
say that, I mean he was the best running back in the league entering this game, but he just adds
to his mistique every game. I had so much faith in him, and after the 54 yard touchdown scamper I had
to just keep giving him the ball."
Yes it was a great game, but lets not forget about Michael
Vick's day. 212 yards, 3 touchdowns, 9/15, 22 rushing yards and a QB rating of 143.7...WOW! Michael
Vick showing why he truly is the best player in the NFL today. However, we cannot just say that this
was an offensive battering, the Cardinals defense allowed only 10 points and 7 of the 10 were due to a
98 yard return for a touchdown by Cris Chambers.
If you think this team had a flook today well
then I guess they had 8 other games which were just a flook.
