  1. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    I feel for ya Jules. It's your prerogative to not like the call whether it was right or wrong. I knew it was coming back right after I saw the replay. There are just several types of plays like this that I think go against the spirit of the rule imo but there is nothing you can do about it because it comes down to the judgment of officials. I do think all too often they look for ways to overturn things and make too much out of things. Did the ball move....certainly....do I think at any time he did not catch it or control it...nope...but that is how it was interpreted. There is probably no physical way he could succeed in making that play and it standing. There is no way he can dive like that and land on the ball and it not move some..even if it never leaves his hands or becomes dislodged. He should have just came down and then stretched out. Tough luck I guess. I do agree though it gets sickening to watch the same teams at the top...there are some nice stories this year but they always seem to be in the NFC....so few ever happen in the AFC...and that's just a testament of a great run organization with great players. It will change in time I promise....we just may all be in a nursing home when it does though. I can agree on this...I would have loved to see the Pats face some adversity in the playoffs by having to go on the road...but it didn't shake out that way....they have won the close games when it counts....Houston should have beat them and honestly TB should have too but both teams played like complete garbage that night. The Jets I thought had them as well....but champs find a way to come out on top. I'm sure there were a lot of fans that got sick of us winning so much in the 2000s too....and I'm sure we got a lot of band wagon fans that wanted to see Peyton beat Tom too just to have someone else to root for. Every sport has their evil goliaths. The New York Yankees and their huge payroll. The Lakers and the Celtics had their dynasties...and some are talking about Cleveland and GS since every decent FA seems to sign with them. Usain Bolt.....I mean how is it fair to run against him!! Don't even get me into soccer where the rich always get richer. Point being every sport has it....but it makes it oh the sweeter to knock them off on your way to winning your own title!
  2. Jimmy Garoppolo traded to the 49ers

    Yeah I agree..in the right system I think he is legit. If they could have held on to him for like 1 more year after this one I think him and McDaniels could have entered in a new generation of Pats success. Now they have to invest another high draft pick in a qb and hope he is as good...Brady is awesome! But he is closer to retirement than he thinks.

    I didn’t realize he could be back that soon. If that is the case I think you bring him off the bench. You don’t ruin the chemistry of the team. He is a great shooter and can help take some load off Kyrie so he can sit a few minutes.

    Will do...you are the most likable team in the playoffs outside the Chargers if they make it for me.

    Tom looked fine from what I saw...he looked tons better than last week....but that’s because Pitts never gets pressure on Tom. I don’t know about all the calls going NE way....but NE is always in position to make the most of a favorable play.
  6. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    I’m pretty jaded in professional sports...I love college basketball the most though....and so happy IU got that big win this weekend...they really need to turn the corner and get back to relevance....my favorite memories outside 2006 are all IU b-ball in the 80s and early 90s
  7. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    Steelers lost a couple secondary guys and now Shazier....that defense isn’t the same...and may have lost Brown for the season too. No way Sam plays unless there are injuries...I like Minnesota I do....I think Carolina might be the best team to beat NE now because of Cam being the X factor and shredding that defense on th ground and they have a decent defense. That said I’d probably root for NE because I’m not a fan of anyone on that team.
  8. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    It doesn’t make you cynical....but if you give Tom Brady a second and third chance to win a game??? Does anyone not think he will? I knew he would.
  9. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    No it wasn’t....he had control the whole time until he hit the ground and it moved in his hand....but it never left his grasp and it wasn’t moving when he went to the ground....he clearly caught it...then reached for the end zone and landed ball first and thus it moved in his hands...but he never lost control or grasp of it. The rule was that he didn’t survive the ground meaning he didn’t maintain control through the ground. It was the right call technically..as they interpret the ball moving slightly as not having control...I disagree but that’s the way they call it.
  10. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    Probably not true because it wouldn’t have been scrutinized as it was. These TD reviews have gone too far and it isn’t really just this call but it’s like they look for ways to overturn things and ruin the flow of games. I agree the call was right according to the rule....but I think he controlled the ball....just because it moved slightly doesn’t mean he didn’t clearly catch it....but that is the rule it can’t move so that’s the right call...it’s just a bad rule interpretation. Pitts deserved to lose...they should have picked it off on that last drive and they ran a horrible Seattle goal line play AGAIN how many times will teams try that against NE. The team that executed down the stretch won and that was NE as usual.
  11. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    It was the right call even if it’s a crappy interpretation of the rule. The real problem is teams choke when it comes to the Pats....they have what it takes skill wise but they don’t have it up in the head. Things like dropping gimme ints and dumb penalties and play calling in the crunch separates NE from the rest. They aren’t the most talented....they just prepare for every scenario and step up when it’s time to make the plays.
  12. I know you love the kid but thank God that our evaluators don’t just watch highlights....they watch week in and week out probably every carry he has ever had....and there is plenty to see there where Barkley misses positive yards time and again to help his team in th effort to break out and go for the big play. He doesn’t always grind out hard yards. I’m not a big fan of rbs that constantly looking to take it the distance and leave yards on the field....at least unless they are Barry Sanders and he is no Barry Sanders.
  13. Yeah we are so unlucky!!!! Both Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck went back and played their senior seasons and both fell in our lap! So unlucky we are!!! (Just a little sarcasm) Honestly there are good players there for us. Would I love a franchise LT there for us....sure but those days I think are gone since college football seems to not value pro style offenses.
  14. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    All the teams with defenses that I think could beat NE have questionable qbs and the teams with qbs have questionable defenses. NE is the most complete team and will be playing at home.
  15. New England (-3) at Pittsburgh (12-17-17)

    They can be beat....but you have to win at the los and you can’t let them be close at the end....sometimes teams get them but usually if it’s close they out execute you.
