Re: 2011 NFL Season - A New Game

Ok, I'm in need of enlightenment here.... what happened at the end of the Jets/ Texans game? Was one of the rule changes this past off-season the killing of the tuck rule? On the third to last play, the Jets QB was hit and the ball hopped out, but his arm was very distinctly going forward. However, the clock didn't stop, the Jets had to use a timeout, and they were backed up another 10 yards. Now don't get me wrong, I have no issues with the Jets losing, but that whole sequence just seemed screwed up. They shouldn't have had to back up and they should have gotten several seconds back. There wasn't even booth replay (and with the timeout, there was certainly plenty of time to call one). So.... am I missing something?

Y'know, if the Bears hate the new 35 yard line kickoff that much, they could just incur a delay-of-game penalty every time they kick off.

Doesn't help them when receiving a kick off, but it's a start.

^I own a pair of the infamous Broncos striped socks, as well as the old style helmet from the 80s.

Always been a closet Denver sports fan. My Dad worked for a company based near there and traveled there from time to time and brought home stuff when I was a kid. I've got assorted stuff from the Denver teams.

I own a pair as well.

My mom still has season tickets, her priority # is sub-10,000. Every chance I get I go to a game at Mile High.

I wonder how the NFL would react if they started doing that? Or went offsides before each kick?

If Lane Kiffin were coaching the Bears, I would absolutely expect him to troll the league like that.

Re: 2011 NFL Season - A New Game

A few of the hopes and questions for the 2011 season...

Tim Tebow finally shuts the fuck up. Okay, asking too much. How about just taking away his megaphone and shipping him off somewhere remote where he can tell the locals that they should be 100% free to worship exactly as he sees fit.

----

Someone will finally explain to me why Phillip Rivers is considered one of ELITE QBs of today, but Tony Romo has the reputation of a an overhyped loser.

Rivers career: QBrate: 97.2, RegSeason: 56-29 Playoffs: 3-4
Romo career: QBrate: 95.2, RegSeason: 38-17 Playoffs: 1-3

----

Why do they let Adam Rank continue to write articles on NFL.com?

----

Why do the let Adam Schefter continue his swarthy little existence?

----

Am I the only NFL fan who actually LIKES Joe Buck and thinks Troy Aikman is a blathering buffoon?

----

Will people stop telling me, "Get over it, he served his time" about Michael Vick? Do they not realize I was fully aware of his scummy, pathetic entitlement personality before we ever heard of the dog scandal? Aren't I still allowed to hate him?

----

Will the people who think "It ain't football unless you're allowed to do long-term, degenerative brain damage on your opponents and yourself" shut the fuck up and go watch fucking NASCAR or else realize that something can be theatrical and exciting without destroying other people's minds and bodies? Are you really still that bloodthirsty? Do you have to see pain in others to enjoy something? Really, can you not evolve with the rest of us?

----

What do you want to bet that what Shapiro is saying about the former Miami players turns out to be 98.3% total fucking.... TRUTH!

I agree with half of this.

Will people stop telling me, "Get over it, he served his time" about Michael Vick? Do they not realize I was fully aware of his scummy, pathetic entitlement personality before we ever heard of the dog scandal? Aren't I still allowed to hate him?
You're free to hate him all you want. The "he served his time" argument usually relates to whether he should be playing in the NFL at all.

Well, if we didn't allow criminals to play in the NFL... you can figure out the rest

And why do you hate Joe Buck? I swear, I'm the only person I've ever met who actually likes him in the booth.
