2015 NFL Season-Now with Playoff Talk

Recommended Posts

OK, so a Buffalo DB makes an incredible play to turn a reception into an interception, except for one problem - the ball hit the ground as he was going down and he was still trying to grip it. Then, after the replay, Ed Hochuli states that there was no clear evidence that it hit the ground, causing everyone's jaws to drop, as they're showing replay after replay that shows the ball clear as day on the ground.

Don't they see the same replays that are on TV? I honestly don't know what is going through an official's brain while he's looking at these things - the ball is clearly on the ground, and they show it on the ground 5 or 6 times.

I often wonder if they don't always have access to the same cameras the television broadcasts do. That happens a little bit too much for my liking.

The Bears are a bad team. Robbie Gould is a bad kicker. He should go away.

13-0. 38-0. Those numbers look pretty good. #KeepPounding

This Niners Browns matchup is about as brutal as it seems, and I'm stuck with it being the only game in my area right now :wacko:

It was literally blacked out at my house. I was out doing something else since 8, so I guess I would've missed this stinker either way.

Really? What cable provider do you have?

No, what I meant is that my power went out thanks to the rain and wind.

Ah, well then, that makes sense. I had a few issues when I first turned on the TV (I'm in Roseville) but after resetting my boxes everything came in just fine. I was kinda hoping the storm would've knocked out the power because sitting in the dark and listening to silence would've been more fun than that game.

Chicago's RT holds on 95% of the plays but has yet to get a penalty for it. These referees are blind and uneducated...

Kerrigan has destroyed Kyle Long. What game are you watching? If you're gonna piss and moan about anything it should be how your offense hasn't put up 80 points on an overachieving defense or that the WAS defense has given a mostly crappy offense 21 points.

Also Willie Young's been held every damn play himself, but hey, don't let me tell you how football works.

Maybe I'm mixing up my tackles and guards... look all I'm saying is the officiating this year hasn't exactly been the greatest for the league this year... Missed/blown calls everywhere

What in the ever loving :censored: happened to the Colts today?! The AFC South and NFC East are unfathomably embarrassing this season.

Luck is out. Hasslebeck played with injured ribs. Clipboard Jesus finished out the game.

Add in a 49 yard fumble return TD, 73 yard punt return TD, and an 80 yard TD pass, that's what happened to the Colts today.

But as long as Houston loses, they'll still be in first place, so... <_<

The Bengals entered this weekend's play as the #1 seed in the AFC. Their QB breaks his thumb on his throwing hand, likely season-ending. May get to return for the playoffs. And they lost to the Steelers today.

The sports world sure does like to screw with McCarthy.

That was an amazing play, and it seemed pretty clear that he would have caught the ball even if it didn't hit the ground... BUT it so clearly hit the ground and gave the ball a little nudge up into his grasp. The Eagles got screwed there; thankfully, it didn't cost them the game. I swear I've heard announcers say before that the refs have access to all the same angles that TV does. Doesn't seem like it.

Oh definitely - he would have caught the ball. That was a ridiculously good play - I've seen balls where both players catch it at the same time and one wrestles it away, but this was more impressive because Celek cleanly caught it first.

Brock Osweiler is NOT the future QB of the Denver Broncos.

Brock Osweiler is NOT the future QB of the Denver Broncos.

So he wins a bunch of games and ends the mighty Patriots' undefeated season, then loses one game to a very decent team, and suddenly he's not the future?

He won against a bad Bears team, an injury-depleted Patriots team and a bad Chargers team. He didn't look good in any of those games IMO.

EDIT: Maybe I'm too quick to judge, but he just rubs me as a mediocre QB. We'll continue to see what happens, however.

Osweiler might not have set the world alight, but he's looked like a perfectly solid NFL quarterback, which is 1. a pretty rare commodity and 2. more than can be said about 2015-edition Peyton Manning. He might not be the long-term future in Denver but he's probably at least the medium-term future.

I'll admit he might end up being mediocre. I just thought it was a little quick to immediately say he isn't the future anymore.
