So... what if they don't flame out in the playoffs? What's the game plan then?

I don't think this will be a problem I'll have to concern myself with.

The only two NFC QB's I trust in the playoffs: Brees & Wilson

The Seahawks sit at 8-2 but still I think they will only split the next 6. They will probably lose to Minnesota, Carolina, and San Francisco. I don't see them losing to the Eagles, Rams, or Cardinals.

MNF was entertaining, but Joe Tess went very overboard in calling it, "a masterpiece".  Seven turnovers and one more if you count a turnover on downs.  When the 49er kicker missed, I wanted a tie as I didn't want to see the loss blamed on the dude.

 

Entertaining, oh yea.  Masterpiece, oh no.

Not apropos of anything, I just had a weird thought as I was prepping hot chocolate this morning.

Why must Chad Johnson's hot chocolate be heated to precisely 85 Celsius? Because only then is it Hocho Cinco.

The right team won last night but the refereeing was seriously suspect.

 

What happens? The refs put points on the board for San Francisco and were actively against Seattle. It's seldom that a team is able to overcome officiating, but even though Seattle did the league still needs to talk about why the refs last night were so bad.

 

If nothing else, Vegas should be concerned.

The NFL needs to hire full-time referees. Have a referee school during training camp/preseason so by the time we get to Week 1 we don't have any mass botchery like we've seen in the last few years. And if sports gambling is going to continue to get legalized in more and more states, then this needs to be a thing today unless the NFL wants to be hounded with accusations of rigging contests.

NFL dropped them all to PT in the spring, but they're still gonna side hustle due to the demand.

Full time won't make a difference. Last year, 20% were full time and it didn't get better.

Or, make them all full-time? Otherwise, the roborefs can't come soon enough.

No one wants robo refs. They’ll be calling every play for holding.

Deadspin would have been writing about what a disaster last night was for officiating.

 

Are there any other sports sites that go in that direction? Or is everyone Sticking to Sports?

Officiating has been complained about universally

Does anyone need to read an article about what referees went to the emergency room for putting bizarre things in a certain place where such things don't belong? Referees are very much a sports issue. Doesn't require any sort of political bent to see that.

Upon further review, I realize that I would like to read such an article myself. Talk about a self-own.

Weird.  After actively working to send every call San Francisco's way all through the game, in overtime they took a first down from the 9ers  on a bad spot right before the missed kick in overtime (at least it seemed that way to my eyes)... Biased, or just really bad?

Seattle gets kinda screwed, as their game against the Eagles in two weeks just got moved from SNF to a 1PM Eastern game.  I think they're coming off a bye, so maybe they come into town early, but I imagine that pacific-time-zone teams playing at 1PM eastern time are at a measurable disadvantage.

Adam Gase gets the vote of confidence at 2-7. This was a Mandela Effect moment for me, as I could have sworn he was fired after losing to the Dolphins.

Vote of confidence is the kiss of death. So, not so much something that happened but something that will.

 

Unless you were a backup QB for the team you coached and you have pictures of the owner with a dead woman or a live boy.
