2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

Recommended Posts

They go 1-3 or 0-4 they still make the playoffs.  Miami wins the division on the tiebreaker if that Week 2 result changes, though.  Probably doesn't keep New England from making it to the Super Bowl, though.

Good G-d. The Patriots are, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the best team of the last twenty years. Five Super Bowls. The best QB of his generation. The biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. The first win in OT in SB history...hell, let's just say it. They won the greatest Super Bowl of all time.

 

So look. To Pats fans everywhere. Congratulations. I mean it. You guys had something special. I wish one of the teams I follow could go on a run half as good.

All of that being said? Shut it. You don't get to bitch and moan. Not right now.

The Pats and their fanbase are officially worse than the Cowboys and their fans. I NEVER thought that was possible, but, congrats! You won that title, too!

Apparently KC's Defense can't stop athletic freight trains masking themselves as  Tight Ends/Wide Receivers, not that I could either. That's just one of many reasons I'm not playing in the NFL.  (if I was I'd be a Kicker - boot the ball through the uprights, kick the ball off, go get a snack...).

 

I do have a question for anyone that is or wants to pretend to be an NFL rules expert:  On the Offensive PI where Crabtree caught the ball, the clock was running because of the review - why was there no ten second run off because of an offensive penalty. I'm assuming it's because of the review where it went from a running clock to a stopped clock there was a ten second run off. Which would make sense if the clock started on the snap, but the official seemed to indicate that the clock would start of the ready for play, and that's what I saw happen, which would in turn show me it's a running clock.  Anyway, just curious as the ends of games in NCAA and NFL tend to get crazy confusing.

Someone that isn't even a pats fan complains about Brady's suspension because they went 3-1, yet I'm the one showing "no class" and "bitching & moaning". 

 

I'm sorry but there's just no logic here.  Someone please explain it to me.

Guess Beast Mode went back into the crowd and congratulated the team in the locker room afterward.

Pats fans, enjoying the greatest modern professional football dynasty, continue the grand tradition of Boston sports fans wanting both adulation for winning and commiseration for past losing and moderately inconvenient slights.

 

They're simultaneously the sorest winners and losers at the same time, unmatched in any other sports or fanbase. Everyone agrees your team is great. No one needs to hear your complaining because you have nothing to complain about.

Ehh, debatable. Cowboys' fans are still generally horrendously ignorant and stupid. I haven't seen Patriots' fans stoop to that level yet, although some here are attempting to change that.

No runoff on OPI as it is a foul occurs during a play.

You're acting hostile and defensive despite being a Pats fan. That's the problem.

What am I complaining about? I don't give a :censored: about Brady's suspension. That's all ancient history. 

 

It's you & rams80 complaining about his suspension all because they went 3-1 & won the Superbowl. Saying a player should be suspended for a season/playoffs or whatever "does the most damage" to the team is asinine, no matter who it is or what team their own.

Thanks. That's what I figured. I also thought I saw Any Reid half down the sideline complaining to the refs after the play and thought he was asking about that rule.

I make an offhanded comment about Brady suspension when some else said high profile Cowboys/Patriots never get punished. Then I get hounded by people saying I'm "bitching & moaning" about it while they complain about it not being harsh enough because they still won the Super Bowl. Maybe I am being defensive (for good reason) But I fail to see how I'm the hostile one here.

If only people understood the suffering and anguish of being a Patriots fan.  It's been a hard 17 years for them, so we should really check our privilege.

Shame on me I guess for making an offhanded comment people took way too seriously.

You're complaining about people complaining about the fact that Brady got off easy for cheating. Fans of the OMG GREATRIOTS take it as a personal slight against them and their families when anyone suggests that maybe, just maybe, their team hasn't been all that honest about its conduct during the Brady years. It's not just about Deflategate. It's also about the fact that the league has done everything in its power to treat the Patriots with kid gloves and not be too harsh on them given their obvious misconduct. The way some Patriots fans react when other fans speak out is as if those other fans came to the Patriots fan's house and kicked their dog.

I say "Brady got punished" when someone mentions high profile Pats/Cowboys players being "immune" from punishment, and people lose their :censored: think I'm "bitching & moaning" about it.

It was a entire year ago, No One should be complaining about it anymore. Let it go. 

The only thing I complained about is that a "season" or "playoff" suspension ("whatever hurts the team most") is stupid. I don't care if it's Brady, Dak Prescott, or Brock Osweiler. That's just dumb. 

Seems more like some people need that stick up their butt removed.
