Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The Pats are a 2 1/2 point underdog AT HOME against the Broncos on Sunday. I wonder when the last time the Pats were ever the underdog in a home game. Hell, a road game for that matter.

Here's another good one, from 2010. Ball intended for Pierre Garcon. No flag on the play:

And the point of posting these are what? So you can continue you I hate the Pats tirade? Non-calls happen to every team.

Its one thing to miss the play. Its another to call, then uncall the pentalty, especially where there hasn't been any evidence in statements by the officials, or in the video replay that justified that call being overturned.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

^basically. Kinda blurry photo, but if the point was that he was interfered with, isn't that pretty obviously not catcahble for the guy on the left? Pretty clearly about 10 yards away, if the guy in the middle is catching it. Gronk missed by a couple feet, and was carried away. Either way, Tighr, really just stop. You hate them, got it, move on. Or just put it in your sig to save the typing every time. It's like a conditioned response at this point: someone says the word Patriots, you get an alarm going off, then pop in here to whine about something or other from years ago. Most of the time, the Tuck Rule, or something generic about how Tom Brady sucks (presumably because he's got a bunch of rings, millions in the bank, married to an even RICHER super-model wife, got a kid with her as well as another model/actress, attractive, uh... what were we bashing him for again? Can't seem to remember, gotta be a flaw there somewhere. Oh yeah, he wore Uggs a couple times! Then again, part owner in the company, so... )

Also, the further back you go the more the rules have changed in that regard. Admittedly the Patriots are to blame for part of that, because they used to essentially murder the Colts' receivers, and the Colts whined about it every offseason until the rules changed. Now you can't even look at a WR funny without some sort of penalty, which has made it very much a passing league. Go watch ANY of the games from the Pats' old superbowl runs. Almost every play, on both teams, is a penalty now.

I mean, we got a game-losing penalty a couple weeks back for... pushing. Their own teammate...

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I have to confess, the more I listen to the explanation by the ref in the booth, the less confident it sounds. To me, he sounds now more like he's sticking up for the other officials than he is confident in the rightness of the call or rather no-call.

It's a shame this all happened, because Carolina really played a whale of a game.

I can't speak to road games, but when it comes to being home underdogs.... a very, very long time.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I think we can all agree that the New England Patriots are a front company for Satan, and Tom Brady is his Cabana Boy...



But that was a crappy (non) call. Pats got screwed. JMHO

You all hate seem to hate Belichick, but I'm sure if he was up to coach your team you'd have him in a hearbeat.

Hey! I was on your side!



I hate the Patriots for a lot more than Belichick. Great coach, though. No question about that.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I'm good with whatever they traded to Satan for their football powers. Pats have only been relevant for the past 20 years, and only good for the past 15, so want to ride this out as long as I can. Smart enough to look around the league and see the mediocrity, so when you've got HOF coach and QB, gotta enjoy it, you'll be 8-8 with a middling draft pick again soon enough...

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

It's happened again. Only difference is that it wasn't the last play of the game. This time, against Miami, Luke Kuechly prevented a TD catch with what seemed to be a pretty obvious helmet-to-helmet hit which was initially penalized, only to have the flag picked up. Apparently, Kuechly is immune from all end zone penalties. At least, that is my interpretation.

Okay Timby, come get your whoopin'!!



Good grief does anyone remember when the Bears used play defense? The Rams rack up 260 yards on the ground with Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham (!!).

And Kyle Long kicking a guy on the ground...nice. He should have been ejected. And I'll just throw in that roughing the passer call toward the end was total bullshit. Didn't matter in the end, but still that was terrible.

Go Rams!!!

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

All 4 NFC North teams played today, including 2 that played against each other, a none of them won. Somehow, it's fitting. The only way it would be more fitting is if this happened in the NFC East.
