2012 NFL Season - Page 3

I agree about RGIII - pocket passer with good legs, like Aaron Rogers, able to move well in the pocket and get out of Dodge quickly when needed.

It will extend RGIII's career if he keeps to this.  I know Rogers is fast, but I cringe whenever he runs.  He hardly slides and that will KO him if he tries it too much.

Posting this before the end of the game in an effort to stay slightly unbiased, but the refs in this Pats/Ravens game has been atrocious. Probably the best thing I can save about them is that they remind me of NBA refs, where you just have no rhyme or reason for why calls went one way or the other. I have no confidence that they'll make the same call in two exact situations.

It was nauseating.  I get up very early, ~5AM, so I turned it off in the 3rd with the Pat's up by 6.  Not worth it to watch anymore.  They definitely affected the outcome of the game. They called offensive pass interference on Edelman and then on Torrey Smith, but picked up the flag.  Neither was OPI.

 

I really admire Ed Reed, but he gave two head shots last night and they only flagged one of them.  The refs seemed confused as to where to spot the ball all first half.  They called completions and then spotted it back at the line of scrimmage.  Both Coaches were seen mouthing, "What are you doing?".

 

I think the Fans should collectively tell Roger Goodell that we are fining him for being an ass and letting this continue.

Replacement refs are struggling with the speed of the game and scrutiny of the players and coaches.  I don't envy their position and it's pretty obvious to anyone who watched the NFL this weekend they are impacting the outcome of games which is a big problem not just for the NFL but Vegas oddsmakers. 

 

Goodell and the owners need to get this resolved asap before the entire season has an asterisk on it.

True dat. Only a matter of time until some safety draws a bead on him at full speed...

lol.. what an ending.

LOl @ the Packers getting hosed! 

 

I keep forgetting... as a NFL owner I vote to bring back the old Officials and give them what they want.  Wouldnt want to see what happened tonight to happen to the Giants.

 

 

 

note: I am and will always be a Giants fan.

What a joke. The NFL is officially a clown show.

post #44 of 288

My Sunday's are free for more golf. I am done watching the NFL until the old refs come back. I can't watch a game where the outcome is screwed up by bad refs.

Never thought I'd say this, but I think Russell Wilson just became the first QB in history to throw a game-winning interception a3_biggrin.gif

 

Perhaps Roger Goodell AKA the Emperor from Star Wars will get his head out of his ass now.

Excuse my language, but that was a ****ing joke.

At least we know for sure one NFL owner will be calling for this lockout to end.

A lot of fines will be handed out to Packers players from the comments on their twitter

Had to travel early this morning so I missed the end of my Packers game. Just saw it......are you KIDDING me?!

Real refs are loving this crap. The rest of us, not so much!

After watching the Packers-Seahawks game last night, I too am done watching football. The random calls and non-calls make games arbitrary events where the quality of play and execution for each team makes no difference on the outcome. They should just base the win/loss on the coin flip.

not just the game last night:

there's why bellicheck was grabbing the ref. he wanted a review of the field goal, but apparently if a field goal is considered good by the ref it cannot be reviewed.

 

two teams given a loss because of replacement refs.

 

as for the "what would happen if this was the giants?"

 

it would be fixed today. mara is goodell's master and speaks with more authority than any other owner. i cannot stand him.

Did the Packers get screwed last night?  Yup!  For starters, that pass interference call on 1st and 30 was a joke.  Then, I dont know how you can call that a TD when Jennings clearly had the ball pinned to his chest and Tate only had 1 arm on the ball.  What a joke.

Only one problem with that though ... the Packers don't really have an owner.

The only problem is you cant grab a ref.  Bellichick has been pressing his luck with these refs a lot lately though and I hope that NFL smacks some sense into him.
