Week 12

Crazy week. How do the Packers beat the Vikings on the road, then lose at home? Ah, that's right, the officials were giving them do-overs on every play that didn't go their way in Minneapolis.

Anyhow, assuming the referees actually let them play, this should be the week when we find out if the Vikings are for real or not. They have to be able to beat a 6-4 Falcons team if they're a legitimate playoff team. If they can't, then they're just not ready yet. And by "they", I mean Teddy Bridgewater.

Vikings reverted to the San Francisco game against the Packers. Don't assume the refs will let anyone play. The squishy SJWification of the rules has forced them to become player-coaches.

"It's a catch if I emotionally identify with it being a catch" is no damn way to play football.

If we're gonna go all conspiracy theorist I think the NFL would rather have undefeated Patriots against the Giants in #50 than Patriots-Packers.

And you're talking about the 1-4 Falcons who started out 5-0 and also won't have Freeman who was leading the league in TDs and yds from scrimmage.

Teddy "0.8 TD Passes/Game" Bridgewater

Bortles has 20, Cousins has 15, Brian Hoyer has 13 TD passes. Is Teddy being too careful with the ball? He should have 10 TD passes just from throwing screens to AD.

Might as well bring favre out of retirement.

Packers still got a couple do-overs against the Bears. The BS DH hold that overturned Roger's first INT, and the horseshit tripping call. Not to mention the non-call on a couple flagrant holds. Didn't stop McCarthy from complaining about being called out on the play their receiver was blocking down field before the ball was thrown.

@4 that was the joke Thursday after Rodgers got the stinger in his non-throwing arm. "Look! There is Favre is warming up on the sidelines"

Watch any Texans game and take a shot of bourbon for every hold against JJ Watts that is not called. Do not drive after the game.

'If we're gonna go all conspiracy theorist I think the NFL would rather have undefeated Patriots against the Giants in #50 than Patriots-Packers.'


Pretty obvious based on the last Pat game, in which the opposing player sliding OOB was blatantly ignored by all officials, and the NFL, and the game was allowed to . . . quietly expire. Like a pillow over a patient's head. All very organic and natural.

That's not a theory. It happened. I've seen some other hinky stuff with the NFL the past few years, especially in home games at Seattle. Stuff that wouldn't have been allowed to go down in the old days.

Most of it, I think, is the effect of The Rising Mob of transformed America on timid referees. In the old days the refs weren't afraid of home crowds, but nowdays as soon as the Mob screeches, they rush to placate, throw a flag, pick up a flag, whatever silences and pleases the Herd. Obviously a bleed-over from the culture at large.

Baddell clearly is corrupt, with his feminism and bend-over corporatism. Fixing games outright prolly not, but the unstated biases are showing. What was most disturbing about the last NE game was how everybody just pretended it didn't happen. It wasn't in their interest to acknowledge reality . . . so they just pretended reality didn't exist, and everybody walked off the field and went home.

The new Ethos.

After being 2-4 watch the REDSKINS (somewhere Costas just fainted) win the NFC Least. They play the eagles, cowboys twice, bears and bills.

Hinky? In what movie have heard that word used?

Never.

All Day, all day. As bad as he beat the Falcon's asses, you know he was showing fatherly restraint on his kid. Goodell could learn a thing or two about appropriate punishment from Peterson.

"And by "they", I mean Teddy Bridgewater."

Zimmer's turning Bridgewater into Bradshaw.

Lewis, Gruden, and Zim all won again.

That was a bullshit call on Gronk what are we playing flag football fuck these refs

OpenID ar10308 November 30, 2015 12:42 AM  

I'm not really a Patriots fan, but they got beyond screwed over by bullshit calls during this game. This NFL officiating is in utter shambles to the point of changing game results on utterly absurd calls.

All the afirmutive action ref highers is harming football.

Bridgewater is no marquis qb, but the Minnesota offensive line is the weakest link this season.
