  1. I don't agree with that. This will only happen if you continually have mistakes made, which I don't think happens. Most plays don't have something controversial in them. On a typical 3 yard run, you don't have to worry about things like offside, pass interference, unnecessary roughness, etc. I don't think the time factor would be that significant if applied. But even if that is the case, you could allow everything to be reviewable in the final 2 mins of each half, for example. There are ways around it. Not to mention that there are multiple ways for the NFL to shorten games if they think this would be that big of a deal
  2. I'm not sure if they are actually getting worse, or if people are just getting more upset about it/it's getting more exposure. I don't know if there are some statistics we could look at to see if they are getting worse, or if we just think they are. They were last year. The NFL suspended the full time program this year, but I'm not sure why.
  3. I haven't watched much film or analysis of him, so I'm not the most informed person on Tua, but I'm very skeptical of any QB coming out of Alabama. When's the last time a starting QB from Alabama was any good in the NFL? When's the last time a QB coached by Nick Saban was any good in the NFL?
  4. I don't know if you can make refs better, so to speak, because they're human and will always make mistakes. Maybe you could start to include robots/computers somehow to remove some of the human error, but I don't know if that's the case. What I'm saying is they need to find a safety net to catch and correct the human errors. I'm in favour of having everything be reviewable. The point should be to make sure everything is called correctly. Why not let every play be reviewable to ensure the game is being played by the rules? This way, you take some of the blame off of the refs, but you also ensure that the game is played the right way. If a ref makes a bad call, it gets reviewed and overturned if necessary.
  5. I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I don't think the NFL has games fixed or tells refs to help one team more than another. I think this comes down to human error (refs make bad calls), and arrogance/ego to not fix those bad calls (not over-turning blatant missed calls). Refs making bad calls isn't a huge deal because we're all human and we all make mistakes. But the NFL needs to figure out a way to make sure these bad calls can be corrected. Sending out statements and apologies on Monday saying the refs were wrong does nothing to help anyone.
  6. Letterkenny is a hilarious TV show about a made-up small town in Ontario, Canada. Video contains some strong language Here's a clip that may better show the origins of the gif originally posted
  7. 50 points to you for the Letterkenney reference
  8. There's also this guy....
  9. Posted this in another thread and it's very relevant here. You want to bench a guy who: a) is completing over 70% of his passes b) has only 1 INT on the year c) has a passer rating of over 110 this season d) has 20 starts under his belt e) has been the starter since training camp In favour of a guy who has played in 1 career regular season game?
  10. Post-loss overreactions. Remember when the Colts went 1-5 to start last year and everyone thought they'd be drafting top 5, only to have the Colts run the table and make the playoffs and be considered a Super Bowl contender? They went from top 5 draft pick to Super Bowl contender in the same season. This season is only a month old. There's plenty of room for improvement and this team and coaching staff have shown they're capable of improving. Maybe this team really is mediocre, who knows? But let's give them more time to see what they're really made of before writing them off and calling the season over after 4 weeks
  11. Merging this with the other Brissett thread since this topic was brought up in the other thread
  12. You want to bench a guy who: a) is completing over 70% of his passes b) has only 1 INT on the year c) has a passer rating of over 110 this season d) has 20 starts under his belt e) has been the starter since training camp In exchange for a guy who has played in 1 career game?
  13. Brissett had a bad game, but let's not throw him into the rearview mirror. The guy is in his first season as a full-time starter. He's going to have some growing pains and adjustments. Not only that, but it was just 1 week ago that he played absolutely lights out. No one is perfect and every QB is bound to have bad games here and there. Even Brady had a bad game this week. Furthermore, this loss was on the whole team and coaching staff. Defense couldn't stop anything, play calls were questionable, lots of drops by the pass catchers, lots of injuries to deal with. Let's not go overboard here
  14. I think he had a really bad game. Went to Campbell twice on deep routes, but he was completely covered. He was once double covered and once quadruple covered. He threw a lot of passes into coverage. He also telegraphed that pick 6 at the end by a mile. And is it just me, or does he look like he's throwing the ball at 100 mph each time? Receivers didn't help him out very much with all those drops though
  15. I've noticed he's always the first guy to help pick up the tackled ball carrier. Love to see that kind of team-first attitude and leadership
