QB Peyton Manning have record day in win over Philadelphia
KUSA With another big third quarter and a dash of special teams, the Denver Broncos set the team record for points in a game Sunday and squelched any hopes of a Philadelphia Eagles' second half comeback in a 52 20 victory.
The Broncos, who have combined for 59 points in the third quarters this season, led 21 13 at halftime but scored on three consecutive possessions (and made 15 first downs) as quarterback Peyton Manning continued his NFL record start.
In the third quarter, Manning tied then set the league record for touchdown passes in the first four games of a season. He now has 16 TD passes this season and no interceptions. He equals Milt Plum (1960, Cleveland Browns) to open a season with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Manning tied the four game TD mark with a 1 yard toss to Demaryius Thomas on the first drive of the second half and set the record on the next possession with a 15 yard pass to Thomas for a 35 13 lead. He added a third TD pass in the quarter when he connected with Wes Welker from 4 yards out for a 42 13 lead.
"Our offense wants to start fast and finish fast," Thomas said. "However many points we got up there, it is what it is."
The previous record of 14 TD passes in four games was held by three players: Sammy Baugh in 1943, Don Meredith in 1966 and Wholesale Jerseys Kurt Warner in 1999.
Manning, who finished the game 28 of 34 passing for 327 yards, has an NFL record 24 career games with four TD passes. He gave way to backup Brock Osweiler in the fourth quarter.
It wasn't just the offense that got into the end zone. The special teams scored twice first on Trindon Holliday's 105 yard kickoff return then in the fourth quarter when Steven Johnson blocked a punt and returned 17 yards for a 49 13 lead early in the fourth quarter.
"The protection has been solid," Manning said. "We're playing fast, getting a lot of plays in, very few third downs today, which means we're doing a good job on first and second downs. And the receivers are doing a good job of getting yards after the catch, getting first downs and touchdowns. That puts a lot of pressure on the defense."
Denver ran 71 plays, had 35 first downs and was 5 of 8 on third down conversions.
The Broncos, who have won a team record 15 consecutive regular season games, have scored 179 points in the first four games, which is second only to the NFL record 183 points set by the 1968 Dallas Cowboys.
"We have high expectations for ourselves and want to go out there and score a lot of points," Welker http://www.fundzangle.com said. "We were able to do that today."
Denver's 52 points were the most against an Eagles team since the New York Giants scored 62 in 1972.
"We may have to give ole' Thunder an IV after this one," Manning said of the team mascot that runs onto the field after each score.
New England's Tom Brady holds the NFL season record with 50 touchdown passes in 2007; Manning had wholesalecheappackersjerseys.com the record with 49 TD passes in 2004 with Indianapolis. Before that, the record was 48, set by Miami's Dan Marino in 1984.
As soon as the Eagles got on the scoreboard, chi hair straightener Holliday ran through the Eagles. He returned the kickoff 105 yards in 12 seconds for a Broncos' 14 3 lead with 5:50 left in the first quarter.
"After I broke the first wave and I see it's just me and the kicker I feel like I have it," Holliday said. "It's very exciting. There's nothing like it."
Thanks to Holliday's return, the Broncos had just one offensive possession in the first quarter and went 69 yards for a 7 0 lead when Manning found Welker on a 6 yard TD pass. Welker has caught a TD pass in every game this season, becoming the first Bronco since Al Denson in 1969 to open the season with TD catches in the first four games.
"Holliday's return was great but it does keep us off the field," Manning said. "For whatever reason, we weren't as sharp after that lull as we needed to be."
The Eagles' high powered offense did become the first in NFL history to have 1,000 yards passing and 750 yards rushing in the first four games.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick finished the game 14 of 27 passing for 248 yards and another 41 yards on eight carries.
"These guys work hard all week," Broncos coach John Fox said. "To do some of the things they do, takes a lot of hard work, a lot of studying, a lot of practice."
Denver next plays Sunday at Dallas, which dropped to 2 2 after a 30 21 loss at San Diego.
"Our offense is doing well, but we're playing well as a football team," Fox said. "Right now we're one quarter into a season. We have a lot of improving. Now we need to get ready to go to Dallas."
mystery still surrounds cheap jerseys disappearance of Fay Rawley
Six decades later, Fulton County still echoes:"What happened to Fay Rawley?"As if passing down a treasured heirloom, generations continue to share conjecture and gossip about the case, making Fay Rawley almost mythic. After all, how can a real, live person especially someone as well known as the gadabout Rawley seemingly vanish without a trace?The story is not folklore yet sorely short of facts after Nov. 8, 1953. The dig triggered a carnival of intrigue that mixed extramarital affairs, off the books loans, a dogged sheriff, inheritance riddles and lock box puzzles. Sixty years later, there are apparently only two possibilities of what happened:Either Fay Rawley got away with one the greatest disappearing acts in history or someone got away with murder. He wore spectacles for his bad eyes and dentures for his missing teeth. He trundled about with a slight stoop, eager to chit chat but meager with smiles. The farmer had served as Woodland Township supervisor and run the bank in Astoria, about 50 miles southwest of Peoria. Not long before vanishing, he was seen with $65,000 in his pocket while chewing the fat at the Astoria grain elevator. A thick wallet beckons as a strong aphrodisiac for a certain type of woman. And long after Rawley vanished, police found out what many husbands already knew: Rawley was a rounder, and he didn't let a pesky wedding ring his or others slow him from chasing skirts."He was a slick old duck," one of his gadabout pals said in 1957. "Women were his downfall."By 1953, he had been separated from his wife, Hazel, for several years. By then, she had left him behind in their white, two story farmhouse home in Summum, an incorporated hamlet near Astoria. She was granted a divorce on Nov. 9, 1953 the day after he was last seen. She never talked to the press, so the subject of their estrangement never became fodder for newspaper stories.
Page 2 of 6 Still, in a 1957 interview, a Rawley buddy might've inadvertently given insight to the wife's marital dissatisfaction: "He was a swell guy. We ran around together for 10 to 12 years, four or five nights a week, riding around, playing pool and so on."A social schedule like that can be hard on a marriage. Meanwhile, free wheeling away from home, Rawley made easy friends as something of a soft touch. He'd never push them. I don't think they made a better fellow."That's one viewpoint. Many men wanted to get their hands on Rawley, but Ball was the last to look for him. By that time, a year had slipped away with little done to track down Rawley. After all, at the time, the sheriff's office had a force of exactly two officers the sheriff and one deputy to patrol and protect most of the four largest counties in Illinois. Such responsibilities would allow precious little time for a missing person's manhunt. But Ball refused to let the probe lie dormant. strip mine, not far from Rawley's house, saw Rawley's new '53 Cadillac there. That would Wholesale NFL Jerseys not have been unusual: Rawley, always restless, often would drive into the mine after nightfall to shoot the breeze with whoever might be around. 8, 1953, the car had been driven into the mine and parked alongside a 20 foot tall pile of earth. On the other side of that pile, atop an even higher pile, stood an excavation crane. The operator was to dig earth and dump it in the exact place where (supposedly) Rawley's car rested. However, because of compromised sight lines, the operator would not have been able to see the car as he moved and dumped ton after ton of dirt atop the Cadillac and whatever might be inside it.
Page 3 of 6 After securing the mine's permission onto the property, Ball convinced a reluctant Fulton County Board to spare $800 to allow a small scale excavation that summer. At Ball's order, geologists drilled deep into the soil and found scrapings of metal green, and like that of Rawley's Cadillac. Route 24, jammed bumper to bumper, for a chance to gaze at the growing hole in the ground. The sun beat down, with almost no shade trees in the strip mine to offer relief; men wore wide brim hats while Ball donned a pith helmet, evoking the look of an archeologist seeking fabled treasure. The scene became something of a tailgate party, with gawkers perched on beer coolers, sucking suds and ruminating gossip. Two enterprising college students set up a tent to sell sandwiches, soft drinks and ice to the masses. Marines and Illinois State Police to keep dour watch. Two weeks before Rawley disappeared, he was assaulted in Macomb. A week later, someone threw acid on his car. In 1957, Helen Wagner was 44 years old and living in Astoria. But in November 1953, she was living in an apartment in Macomb, six months divorced and keeping company with Rawley. In 1957, she recounted that in fall 1953, Rawley wanted to marry her after he was divorced. At first, she liked the idea, but later changed her mind. And they continued to see each other.
Page 4 of 6 On Nov. Still, she said she expected to see him again sometime. I'm not proud of that," she said. "Oh, I know I was single, and he had been separated from his wife for eight years, but the kind of person he was, it's nothing to my credit. And I have nothing else to my discredit, I can tell you that, and that's the truth."Did she know what happened to him? "I wouldn't know. Spectators soon had another diversion to pass the time: watching the self proclaimed "witchers." One was Orville Fleming, a janitor at the Astoria post office, who tromped around with a trusty rod, a piece of animal jawbone tied to the end. It dipped wildly over a spot where he believed diggers would find a car. "Of course," he said, "I won't bet whose body it is, but there's a body in that trunk for sure."If anyone took that bet, no one collected. After seven long days of excavation, the mine grew impatient, and Ball called everything off. In 1962, out of office for four years sheriffs back then were limited to one term Ball tried another approach at the mine: digging in a new spot with bulldozers. The search sparked renewed media ballyhoo, and a teen troubadour grabbed headlines while traipsing through Peoria bistros crooning his self penned "The Ballad of Fay Rawley."But the second search proved no more successful, prompting some observers to joke about "Ball's Folly." But the ex lawman, who'd partly financed the second search out of his own pocket, felt no pang of regret."As long as a man feels he's right about something, he should go ahead and do it," Ball said. "If he later finds he's wrong, there's no reason to feel bad about it."Still, chagrined was Rawley's lone son, Robert Rawley. After the disappearance, the 28 year old tried to run his father's affairs, then took out ads in newspapers cheap jerseys china seeking clues to the mystery.
Page 5 of 6 As years wore on, he fought with the courts to try to open bank lock boxes his father owned. He thought the boxes could contain tips about the disappearance, and certainly information about the estate holdings. In 1961, while driving a new Cadillac on the roads of Fulton County just as his father often did the younger Rawley was killed in an auto wreck. The family of Judge Charles Wilhelm, who retired from the Fulton County bench in 1999, was close with the Ball family. Yet Wilhelm, one of those two enterprising college students who had sold food and drinks at the '57 dig site, never did hear any whispers of possible suspects."I wish I knew," says Wilhelm, 79, of Lewistown, who still hears occasional coffee shop conjecture about the case. " . I wish I had even an inkling."Well, there might be at least two people who have an idea about the killer. A reporter and editor both now dead traded those for several days during the dig. The notes hint toward a suspect, and the paper even secured his photo, apparently to run upon his arrest. So there's no confirmation available there.
Page 6 of 6 But Virgil Ball's son says he knows who did it: his dad told him."I feel my father was very correct in who did the crime," says John Ball, 68, of Lewistown. "And I'm confident Fay Rawley's car and body are in that mine."John Ball, who never went into law enforcement, says his father didn't share with him any key reports or evidence regarding the case. Still I have no idea if the suspect's descendants are still around. A lamp was overturned, and his eyeglasses were left behind.

Best Running Backs
While pondering whether Orlando Pace or Troy Smith would be the next Ohio State player to have his jersey number retired, I was looking at the current list of retired numbers.
Seven of them are memorialized on the Ring of Honor at Ohio Stadium, including all five Heisman Trophy winners. In addition, six of the seven honorees gained their greatest glory in Buckeye backfields, ostensibly running the ball for a program that has historically used its ground attack to win championships.
For many years, Ohio State officials were reluctant to retire jersey numbers for a number of reasons, all of which were short sighted. Who do we honor? By what process do we make the decision? What happens if we start running out of numbers?
Only when Andy Geiger arrived as athletic director did the university finally begin to honor the tradition of which it is so fiercely proud. Two time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin was the first player to have his jersey number retired when he was surprised by Geiger and members of his family on the field at Ohio Stadium during the 1999 season.
In the years since Griffin's No. 45 went into mothballs, Ohio State quickly made up for lost time by retiring the numbers of fellow Heisman winners Les Horvath, Vic Janowicz, Howard "Hopalong" Cassady and Eddie George. In October 2004, the university honored the football program's first major star when Chic Harley by retiring a jersey in his honor.
Last October, a seventh jersey number was retired when Bill Willis was honored just a few weeks before his death at the age of 86. Willis achieved most of his fame on the defensive side of the ball, but he was also a punishing offensive tackle who blew open holes for such running backs as Horvath and Paul Sarringhaus as well as fullback Gene Fekete, who led the Big Ten in scoring as a sophomore in 1942.
All of that got me to thinking about the best running backs in Ohio State history. There have been a lot of them and together they have produced some of the most memorable moments in the Authentic Zdeno Chara Kids Jersey history of the Scarlet and Gray. Just the six running backs who have had their jersey numbers retired combined for astounding number more than 15,000 rushing yards and 150 touchdowns.
I have limited my list to those who spent most of their time at either a tailback or halfback spot. (That's why fullbacks such as Jim Otis, John Brockington and Pete Johnson are nowhere to be found. We'll deal with that position sometime in the future.) Here is my top 10. See how it stacks up to yours.
1. Keith Byars (1982 85) OK, he doesn't have a Heisman Trophy even though he should have been the winner in 1984, a season during which he rushed for 1,764 yards and scored 22 touchdowns. Byars was put on this earth to run the football for Ohio State he was big and fast and never seemed to get tired. His 336 carries during that '84 season has never been equaled. More than just a running back, however, was the fact that Byars was such a weapon in the passing game. Because he was such an all around threat, he tops my list.
2. Eddie George (1992 95) The first word that comes to my mind is "smooth." Watching George break through the line was like watching Secretariat break from the gate. The fact that he went on to such a productive NFL career was no surprise. His senior season in 1995, when he rushed for 1,927 yards and won the Heisman, is the gold standard for all Buckeyes who follow. Perhaps the most astounding thing about that season every opposing defensive coordinator knew George was coming and was powerless to stop him. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry and 25.2 carries per game. You could flip flop Byars and George in the top two spots and you wouldn't get much of an argument from me.
3. Archie Griffin (1972 75) Not the biggest and not the fastest, Archie was simply one of the those guys who maximized his talents through hard work and determination. It didn't hurt that he played behind a massive offensive line and one of the best blocking fullbacks (Johnson) in college football history. Still, Griffin knew what to do when he broke the line of scrimmage. Comparisons of his fluid running style to the great Walter Payton are not unwarranted. And if it was production you wanted, it was production you got. His career mark of 5,589 rushing yards still stands more than a quarter century after he played his last game at OSU and no one has come within 1,800 yards of that record.
4. Howard "Hopalong" Cassady (1952 55) Cassady has become a larger than life figure over the past 50 years, but many of today's fans don't know that he was a little guy by today's standards. The freckle faced, redheaded kid from Columbus Central High School was only 5 10 and about 170 pounds, but he could fly. He scored three touchdowns in his first college game and went on to become one of the greats in college football history. In 1955, he won one of the most lopsided Heisman votes in history, polling 2,219 points, nearly three times the total of the second place finisher. Cassady was also the consummate teammate, leading Woody Hayes to say, "Hop is the most inspirational player I have ever seen." Good enough for me.
5. Vic Janowicz (1949 51) On sheer athletic ability alone, Janowicz had few equals. He could run, throw and kick a football with the best of them and had enough talent to become one of the few players to enjoy professional careers in both the NFL and Major League Baseball. The coaching change from Wes Fesler to Hayes in 1951 and the philosophy change that went with it robbed Janowicz of possibly becoming the first two time Heisman winner. But those who remember his 1950 season remember a blur who ran past opponents and scored touchdowns in bunches. Oldtimers still talk in hushed tones about his performance in an 81 23 win over Iowa he scored three touchdowns two rushing and a 61 yard punt return threw for four scores, recovered two fumbles on defense and kicked 10 extra points. Not a bad day's work.
6. Chic Harley (1916 17, 1919) Simply put, Harley was the catalyst for what eventually became Ohio State football as we know it today. I could list his statistics, some of which would pale in comparison to the numbers average players put up these days. Rather, I'll list just a handful for Harley's accomplishments Ohio State's first three time All American, the first man ever to lead the Buckeyes to a victory over Michigan, the first to lead them to an undefeated season and the first to lead the Scarlet and Gray to a conference championship. The fact that he played nearly a century ago Authentic Johnny Boychuk Kids Jersey and still makes this list is probably all you need to know about Chic Harley.
7. Tim Spencer (1979 82) Spencer would likely have been higher on this list had he not served as a fullback for his first two seasons. He totaled 1,217 yards in his first year as a starter and then upped that total to 1,538 in his senior year of 1982. That figure is still the fifth best single season total in school history.
8. Antonio Pittman (2004 06) Largely the forgotten man in an offense that featured Troy Smith and Ted Ginn Jr., Pittman's workmanlike approach to the tailback position allowed the Buckeyes to become a more multifaceted offense in 2005 and '06. He was remarkably consistent during his two seasons as the starter 1,331 yards as a sophomore and 1,233 as a junior and http://www.officialnhlhockey.com/ZDENO_CHARA_JERSEY_AUTHENTIC-c-1_13_15.html turned himself into a pretty good receiver as well. Pittman would likely be higher on this list had he returned in 2007 for his senior season.
9. Robert Smith (1990, 1992) If you have read anything that I have written about Smith in the past, you'll know I am not his biggest fan. Nevertheless, the guy was an extremely gifted running back. Striding like a gazelle, he set the OSU freshman record in 1990 with 1,126 yards and had the look of a potential Heisman Trophy winner. Unfortunately, his career got off track for a variety of reasons some of Smith's own creation and he never fully realized his great potential. Nevertheless, the all too brief flashes he showed in Scarlet and Gray make him deserving to be in my top 10.
10. Raymont Harris (1990 93) This is probably as close to sentimental as I'm going to get. If you've ever met "The Quiet Storm" in person, it is practically impossible not to like him. On the football field, his enthusiasm bubbled over and made him a very dependable back in the early part of the 1990s. Many historians will likely downgrade Harris because he played during a time when the Buckeyes were struggling. And the fact that he had to contend with Smith and Carlos Snow for playing time much of his career kept him out of the starting lineup until his senior year. Still, Harris managed 2,649 yards for his career and that still ranks ninth all time in school history.
That's my top 10, a list that doesn't even include guys like Pepe Pearson, Jeff Logan, Michael Wiley, Don Clark, Ron Springs, Maurice Clarett and Murray. But you have to cut things off somewhere.
The list of top 10 running backs is a continuation of what I started a couple of weeks ago with my top 10 Ohio State quarterbacks of all time. In case you missed that list, click on this link: My Top 10 OSU Quarterbacks.
In case you missed it, the Big Ten has released its conference football schedules through the 2012 season, and thanks to the 12 game seasons http://www.officialnhlhockey.com/JOHNNY_BOYCHUK_JERSEY_AUTHENTIC-c-1_13_22.html and the desire of coaches to get a week off somewhere in the middle of the grind, the end of the regular season has been moved back a week beginning in 2010.
That means the traditional season finale between Ohio State and Michigan will be played two days after Thanksgiving in 2010, 2011 and 2012. OSU head coach Jim Tressel has always been a proponent of having that holiday weekend off so that his players and coaches can go home and enjoy it with their families. But the desire to get that extra week of rest during the season seems to have won out.

How To Cook A Steak Indoors: A Guide For The Winterbound
The first step is accepting that your kitchen is going to be quite literally as smoky as hell, which, owing to the energy inefficient cooking methods used to incinerate the souls of the damned, can get a bit sooty.
Winter poses a challenge to those of us who are not hearty, leather skinned, horn helmeted Scandinavian goobers. Its whipping winds, driving sleet, and round the clock total darkness make it nigh impossible to use our grills without turning into actual snowpersons. This wouldn't be much of a challenge if bloody red meat, cooked quickly and incompletely over ferocious heat, were not the best antidote to the bleak frozen moonscape howling outside your door, and if grilling that meat outdoors were not far and away the easiest, quickest, least noxious way of preparing it.
The issue, as I say, is smoke. That is, cooking a steak the way steak is meant to be cooked blasted to crispy caramelization on the outside, warm and red and bloody on the inside requires furious heat, and that furious heat produces a lot of smoke when it comes into contact with fat. I'm sorry to say there is no fix for the smoke itself if you cook steak in your home, your home is going to have a lot of smoke in it but there is a fix for being deterred by the smoke from cooking steak in your home, and that fix is to quit being a weenie, open a window, and cook some friggin' steak.
Specifically, sear roast it. This technique has the advantage of not being the absolute smoke producing est way to prepare steak indoors (narrowly edged out by dumping your steak into a bucket of burning bituminous coal), and also has the lesser advantages of being quick and easy, resulting in a steak delicious enough to completely rearrange your facial features. As the name implies, you're going to sear your steak, and then you are going to roast your steak: the searing will caramelize the surface of the meat, while the roasting in this preparation, anyway will warm the interior juuuust enough for you to feel as though you were eating some food that has been prepared, and not as though you were just chowing the fuck down on an expired cow you found in a field.
Pick up a couple of steaks. They don't need to be USDA prime grass fed bone in ribeye or friggin' Matsusaka Wagyu or anything like that; if you can get a couple of inch or so thick New York strips from your local supermarket without being required to auction your internal organs, that'll be just fine.
Also, get some potatoes. You're also having potatoes.
To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees, which is probably pretty near as hot as it will get unless you are cooking your dinner in a pizza kitchen, which, if that is what you are doing, is stupid. Also, set your steaks out on the counter (on butcher paper or a cutting board) so they can come to room temperature.
Now, get some potatoes simmering. It's time to season those steaks. Pat them dry with a paper towel, then sprinkle them with salt (generously, but don't go nuts, or you will end up snapping into a Slim Jim, and nobody wants that) on one side. Coarsely grind some black pepper onto that same side. With your fingertips, gently press the salt and pepper into the meat. Flip each steak over and repeat.
(A note, here: I'm sure it's possible to put too much coarse ground black pepper onto a steak. Like, hypothetically, if your steak is indistinguishable from a hunk of granite, it very well might have too much coarse ground black pepper on it. Short of that, though, cut loose with the pepper. Grind and grind and grind. Trust me. The aroma your meat will exude during cooking and the way it will taste when you eat it will justify your sore wrist a hundred times over, and also cause you to buy your pepper grinder an expensive wristwatch that I am sorry to say it will probably not appreciate.)
(Another note: If you want to get creative and add some paprika or cumin, here, or slice some cloves of garlic and push the slices into the surface of your meat: don't. You're going to sear the bejesus out of these steaks, and whichever of the extra spices and aromatics you add because you just can't enjoy a meal unless it is doubling as an expression of your irrepressible zest for adventure aren't incinerated also won't make your steak taste any better than if you just give it a generous seasoning of salt and coarse ground black pepper. Plan on deploying a double dose of but I just Authentic Terry O'Reilly Kids Jersey have to express myself! on tomorrow morning's Cheerios, and stick with salt and black pepper for tonight, OK?)
That took, what, 30 seconds? Lotta time left on that timer, there. Nineteen minutes! And they're all yours! You could grab a shower! You could read a chapter of your favorite book! You could watch a basket or two of college basketball, interspersed through 19 minutes of crummy amateurs waving their arms a lot! (This has been your Moment Of Unprompted College Sports Antagonism.)
When the timer goes off, don't do anything to your potatoes; they still need to simmer for another five minutes or so. While they're doing that, get a skillet hot on the stovetop, pour in just enough oil to put a thin film over the surface of the pan, and sear your steaks for four minutes or so on one side. Ideally you'd do this on a seasoned, oiled, furiously hot cast iron skillet; however, if you don't have one of these, it's perfectly OK to use a furiously hot stainless steel skillet instead. For that matter, I'd be lying if I denied having sear roasted steaks to delicious effect in a somewhat less than furiously hot nonstick skillet, although it's reasonable to suspect that this is why I now have a big toe growing downward from my chin. In any event, you need a very hot, oven proof pan that is large enough to hold both steaks at the same time without requiring them to be stacked atop each other. Cast iron and stainless steel are great; nonstick is OK but will probably turn you into the Brundlefly; My First PlaySkool Frying Pan is probably going to melt in the oven, which might be cool but will certainly be toxic, which might also be cool but will certainly not yield tasty steaks.
(Yet another note: Look at your skillet's http://www.officialnhlhockey.com/TERRY_OREILLY_JERSEY_AUTHENTIC-c-1_13_31.html handle. Is it metal? Good. Is it wood? Less good. Is it rubber? You are going to cook a tire fire.)
Four minutes have gone by, during which you have not touched your steaks but have simply allowed them to sear unmolested in the pan. Smoke is now pouring from every crack and crevice of your home's exterior, dogs are barking, the fire truck is on its way, but more importantly, your steaks are now a crispy, sizzling, caramelized brown on one side. It's time to flip those steaks over, immediately stick the entire skillet in the oven, and set a timer for four minutes. Maybe turn on a fan, too. And put on a gas mask.
Now, drain your potatoes while you wait for the steaks to finish roasting. That ought to take about 10 seconds, leaving you plenty of time to stumble around crashing into things because you cannot see through all the smoke.
When the timer goes off, put on an oven mitt, remove the skillet from the oven, have a laughing/coughing fit in response to the roaring pyroclastic cloud that comes out with it, remove the steaks from the skillet, put the steaks on a plate, pour the liquid from the skillet over them, and cover them with another plate or a loose but enclosed tent of aluminum foil. The meat needs to steep in those juices for a few minutes, while its still considerable residual heat continues to nudge it to a state closer to cooked than to still illuminated by the receding taillights of the tractor trailer that ended its life.
While that's going on, prepare mashed potatoes. This should only take a couple of minutes. You'll do it by dumping your cooked and drained potatoes into a big bowl (or back into the pot in which they cooked); adding cream (heavy or half and half, depending on how long you wish to live), butter, salt, black pepper, and a bunch of horseradish (the kind in a jar, or, if you want something for which to congratulate yourself, the kind you Authentic Ray Bourque Kids Jersey grate yourself because you are a dweeb); and mashing the hell out of it all with a potato masher or a big fork or a sturdy wire whisk. (If you have a handheld mixer, electric or manual, you can use that instead and get fluffier whipped potatoes, but I think we both know you don't have one of those.)
