Was bad but not as bad as the blocked extra point, the pick six, the gift field goal at the end of the half with a stupid penalty, and oh yeah the Colts “attempt” at the end of the game.

Officiating was really bad (that "penalty" on Okereke was egregious), but at the end of the day, the Colts didn't execute.  Bad officiating is gonna happen.  Good teams can overcome it with good execution

That's an okay argument but in a billion dollar business you shouldn't have to be expecting to overcome poor officiating. That is similar to blaming a assualt victim saying they should have taking some self defense classes.

That was beyond ridiculous.  I have not seen an officiating team mismanage a game that badly since BottleGate.

The refs combined to give the Steelers at least 6 points in field goals they wouldn't have gotten otherwise.  They were literally the difference in the game.  That's absolutely unacceptable.

This might be one of the most ridiculous analogies I've ever heard.  The NFL refs are human and will make mistakes.  Mistakes will happen to both sides.  Some bad calls went against the Steelers too.  At the end of the day, the refs weren't the reason the OL played poorly, or the defense couldn't make stops.  Edmunds averaged 6 yards a carry and our offense could hardly move the ball.

Except that it isn't.  The only point where it fails is that bad officiating is a proverbial act of God, you can't prepare for it or do anything to protect yourself from it and at the end of the day that makes it more like blaming people for getting struck by lightning out of a clear blue sky.

Tell me how my analogy is wrong? If you cant accept being wrong. Move along.

 

A bad call gave the the opportunity for 3 points. What did the colts loose vt?

They can sometimes.  

  

But you absolutely cannot beat NFL refereeing. The teams are too close to overcome game changing, egregious penalties.  

The refs are terrible and the rules are terrible.

Statement 1: The NFL refs are human and will make bad decisions, but a good NFL team can overcome that with good execution

 

Statement 2: A sexual assault survivor is at fault and should be taking self-defense classes

 

How do those two even remotely relate?

Hoyer's pick 6 was not the refs' fault.  The defense giving up 6 yards a carry to Edmunds is not he refs' fault.  The OL not being able to block is not the refs' fault.

No NFL team plays perfect.  

The refs decide way to many games on phantom penalties.  

  

It's a problem.

However. We still could’ve won had we made those XPs and that FG

I thought last week's crew was worse.  Every game with Walt Anderson' crew (last week) is probably going to be the worst officiated game ever...?

It’s a problem but not one teams can do anything about so teams ignore it and focus on what they can control.  There was plenty from today’s game that the Colts can control and I’d hope they focus on that.

First. How was it human error when a flag was thrown incredibly late after fans and the team was calling for it?

 

Second. Your saying the colts put themselves into the situation by playing bad and even though officiating was bad it's their fault for not do doing better in that situation. Which is the same as saying the person who was assaulted put themselves in that situation for not better preparing for that situation. 

 

Third. Where did I ever say sexual? Your trying to flame the situation even more for being wrong. Maybe you should ban yourself.

It's so frustrating seeing the refs get influenced by the sideline/ crowd. The one on Leonard where he legally pushed Ju-Ju out was annoying as hell.

Sadly the NFL doesn't care. As long as people continue to buy the gear and go to games. 

Fans will be frustrated, but they'll still watch.

The OL not being able to block is not the refs' fault

 

That was mostly on the fact that Pittsburgh figured out Hoyer was a statue. Not knocking his overall play, but he is immobile and the D knew it and pinned their ears back.

Idk. I've gotten closer every season.  

Used to watch just about every NFL game.  

Now I follow the Colts on my app and this forum.  

  

Idk how much longer I can even do that.  

  

There's gotta be plenty of others.  

  

I love the Colts, but the NFL just isn't entertaining anymore.

In response to your first point, it's human error because the refs think they see something when it didn't necessarily happen that way.  The refs think they see a late hit or an unnecessary roughness penalty, but that's not really what happened.  That's the definition of human error.

 

Second point, a football game and assault are two very different things.  I drew no correlations between the two, and never intended to.  All I'm saying is that while the officiating was bad, the Colts didn't perform well.  Had the Colts executed well with good OL play and the defense making more stops, they could have won, regardless of the refs.

 

Third, my mistake.  I misinterpreted and thought you said sexual assault, but I was wrong on that, so that's my fault.  But the two above points still stand and your analogy makes 0 sense in this context

It really is frustrating. I also followed the league as a whole years ago, but now I'm down to basically our game each week.

The officiating is a problem though.

The field goal before the half on the first of two horrible calls on leonard.

Saying the refs think they see this or that is just excuses made for the refs they suck need to be working in the fast food industry immediately.

Leonard hit him in the head.  Honestly I was shocked he didn’t get flagged the play before that for hitting the Steelers QB while he was sliding.  Still you are 100% right about the second call.  I’d say it was the worst call I had seen all year if they hadn’t flagged our linebacker for tackling later in the game.

    • So, Dallas traded back with Detroit from #51 to #67 and still got Kyle Dugger.. that's some good value, and they have an extra pick in 3rd round! Two more picks in third round for Dallas, can get a top TE still if they want.   Detroit did well too by trading up, overall got Okudah, Blacklock and Terrell Lewis - all in on their defensive rebuild. That looks great for both teams. Somehow Patricia still wouldn't rush them at QB even if he gets all of them.
    • I liked John Simon while he was here, sad to see him cut in 2018. I know he didnt fit what we were moving to but good solid player.
    • Maybe Jon Hand.    Bradtzke wasn't even here very long, would be interested to see those numbers. For some reason, every season I'm telling at our DL to get their hands up and always think back to Bradtzke.?
    • Wilson and Mahomes II will fare better than Jackson and some others more similar to Lamar.  These two have extensive baseball backgrounds, especially Russell.  Patrick's dad was a Major League pitcher.  They both know to to slide properly, and also when when to slide/duck/avoid the throw to first on a double play attempt.  This transfers to slide in the NFL to avoid big hits.  Other QB's don't learn this trait well growing up in football, and also seem to be more inclined to be a 'tough guy' and grind a couple more yards, or try to twitch out of a tackle.   Cam's game is to use his legs often, not just throw or hand off, and the hits pile up.  There's only so much gas in the tank. It's prudent to wonder how much Cam has left in his.
    • The Jets Situation - The offensive line was a disaster.  Expensive free agent Le'Veon Bell had only 3.2 yards per carry.  And 2nd year rookie QB Sam Darnold had few weapons to throw to.  It wasn't all bad.  7th in total defense.  2nd in rushing defense.   Free agent moves (some of them, anyway) George Fant, OT, Seattle (3 years, $30mm) Conner McGovern, C, Denver (3 years, $27mm) Greg Van Roten, OG, Carolina (3 years, $10.5mm) Josh Andrews, OG, Indianapolis (unknown yet) Breshad Perriman, WR, Tampa Bay (1 year, $8mm) Pierre Desir, CB, Indianapolis (1 year)   2020 Mock Draft 1/11 - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma 2/48 - Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn   And with the 68th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Jets select   John Hightower, WR, Boise State   @ColtsGermany with the Carolina Panthers is on the clock
