14:29 Vick quick drop and fire out to Djax for a quick 9 yard gain....again well designed, quick read and fire, nice play.

END of the First Quarter....This takes an hour plus to do per quarter...So I will try to do a quarter a night, but this really tells you what is happening out there. Watching it in Slow Mo you can clearly see who the problems are out there. My biggest problem right from what i have seen in slow Mo is the damn Wide 9!!! It Blows!
