The Saints and Seahawks are so ridiculously good when playing at home but on the road they can look down right pedestrian.
Watching the Hawks tonight, they look like the team representing the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Defense didn't miss a beat without their starting corners either. Scary.

That was a freaking awesome game! And apparently the fans caused earthquakes and we took back the noise title!

That's the point: Watch them when they're on the road. Of course, since they've all but locked up the #1 seed, they won't need to leave home in the playoffs.

Well, I'm going to watch them quite a bit this week as they are playing the Niners. Still, to have that home field advantage throughout the entire postseason, who can beat them? I thought NO had the best chance but they laid an egg. I don't think the Niners can, and other than that, the competition is pretty light, and that includes the Panthers.

I don't know... the Panthers, though they lost, did manage to hold the Seahawks to 12 points.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Tomlin gets a $100,00 fine, plus there's still a possibility the Steelers could lose draft picks.

What a league. Players like Suh and (especially) Merriweather keep getting let back on the field, but Tomlin takes one little step on the field during that play and the team could lose draft picks?

Ridiculous. A fine I could understand.

Did Suh or Merriweather interfere with an active play like Tomlin did?

Are you all excited for the Thursday night Houston-Jacksonville game? This could be the most important game in Teddy Bridgewater's career.

Merriweather said he was going after knees, even after his suspension was reduced.

I'm just saying there seems to be a huge imbalance to punishment in the NFL.

Is interfering with a play really worse than consistent, intentional dirty play and illegal hits?

That's the TNF game?!? Good thing I bought a couple of books recently.

I'd rather them take Clowny. Clowny and JJ Watt on the same D line would be awesome!

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I think taking away draft picks would be excessive. That being said, Suh's latest fine was something like that on a play that wasn't really all that dirty. Maybe it made up for previously low fines for plays that seemed both dirty and malicious.

Yes it is. Because the coach is not a fucking player, and what Tomlin did was outrageously unsportsmanlike. Far more imo, than a maybe excessive display of violence in an inherently violent sport.

that's messed up.

And with valid justification.

No, but maybe this penalty isn't too much but the other ones were too little.
