Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Speaking of rent-a-refs, I just saw on Redzone channel that an official threw his hat on the field during a redzone drive by the Cowboys; Ogletree was heading into the endzone to try and catch the pass and SLIPPED ON THE HAT.

Now, I know officials tend to throw things on the field (usually, beanbags) to mark spots, but in this case that actually affected the play. Ogletree could have caught that pass for a touchdown.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

The Saints got screwed by having that TD at the end of the half taken away..... There was nothing that definitively showed that the ball was incomplete, and a couple of the views made it look like it was good. That screw up could be big if the Saints end up losing by 7pts or less.

Yep, I feel the same way. I don't care if their presentation is terrible. I'm just glad I can watch the Thursday night games, finally.

And..... they got hosed again, on another interesting challenge. Personally, I would say the spirit of the rules say that if you hit the pylon but land out of bounds, that's incomplete. But he clearly hits the pylon before going out of bounds, and according to the rules, that should be a touchdown.

And, Brees throws an interception, so -2 pts for me in fantasy.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph....

Our defense played fairly well, but our offense was unbelievably terrible. That was just flat out embarrassing. As many sacks as points. Just disgusting.

This is going to be a long week.

Congrats Timby. You bastard.

Indeed, though I have a hard time holding that one against them too much. While they screwed that one up, it's a rule that doesn't make a ton of sense and I didn't even realize it existed until the commentators started talking about it. While it's a rule (ergo, they should know it), at least it's not a completely obvious thing that they blew. And, the Saints did end up getting the TD on that drive.

With that game going to overtime, it suddenly looks like that 10pt swing from the botched review is a pretty big deal now.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

I'm not exactly sure (was watching it via an online stream) but I think the Broncos/Texans game didn't have a commercial break until just now in the middle of the 2nd quarter... no reason to, CBS was live at all of the early games that went to overtime!!

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

I haven't popped in down here this season as my team isn't really worth crowing about, still isn't really. However, I just got home from that crazy Titans v Lions game.

So, who took the over in Vegas on that game? Titans 44 vs Lions 41 in OT.
If you haven't seen highlights from it yet just wait.

It was an emotional roller coaster for sure. I'm not sure who the refs were screwing more at times.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

The Vikings/49ers game had the refs give Harbaugh two challenges/time outs after he'd already burned all three time outs... and the refs said that the 49ers would be charged time outs that they didn't have. It was ridiculous.

We got officials tripping people with hats, not knowing pylon rules, calling St. Louis St. Louie... just another bad weekend all around for the fake refs.

Hopefully the end of the Jets/Dolphins game is a trigger for the end of the icing the kicker biullshit. Good to see it completely backfire on Miami, even if it does give the Jets a win.

I feel bad for Sam Bradford because he O line apparently went out for drinks with the Bears' O line last night and picked up a few bad habits.

Wow, the refs in the Pats/Ravens game are a hot mess so far...
