Cadillac sets some kind of record

Cadillac Williams set a record yesterday against the Packers. I believed it involved rushing and had something to do with rookies in their third game. I'm not too sure since I wasn't able to watch the game. I hope the media mentions the record.

In what has become obvious the Bucs are relying on Williams to win games for them. Williams ran for 158 yards yesterday including 88 yards in the fourth quarter. My father (who did watch the game) thought that Williams didn't look all that impressive until the fourth, which is interesting considering he was wearing a protective boot during practices this week.

I'm still not buying the Bucs as a powerhouse team in the NFC even though they are the only 3-0 team in the conference. The team to beat is still the Eagles, while the Panthers and Falcons will de difficult teams to beat. (I'm still on the Panther's Super Bowl band wagon.) The Bucs could go 7-1 to start the season and I would still not like them to come out of the NFC. Their first half schedule is that soft.

Anyway, in case you missed it, the President's Cup was easily the most compelling sporting event this weekend. Overshadowed by the NFL hype machine and MLB playoff races, the President's Cup had more drama than any baseball or football game. Tiger looked un-Tiger like. Couples makes a birdie on 18 to upset Vijay. Mickelson's and DiMarco's man love reached new levels.

Oh yeah, and the Americans won on a last shot birdie putt by DiMarco.
