If the Saints don't hold, we should be hitting Brees on every down.
OT: Lions-Saints Playoff Game Open Thread
the whistle while the ball was still on the ground
That would have been a td if they didn't blow the whistle. Why'd they blow the whistle again???
I don't get how it was ruled a fumble and yet was still blown dead. Should be 21-7
I'm wondering the same thing. Wtf?
Kill shot. Right now.
Gotta make them pay
They should have kept running!
actually a fumble we just got robbed of a defensive TD by an early whistle
Lions offense is as good as the Saints.
Our defensive front four is better than any of the rest in the league.
We're going to win.
You son of a bitch if you've jinxed this...
"Yep. We saw it as a fumble on the field. Oh, why did we blow the whistle? Because we saw it as an imcomplete pass."
I hate all refs everywhere.*
*Other than the replay official at the Sugar Bowl.
Can't capitalize on that turnover. That was no good. Screwed by an early whistle there. That's huge
lets make them punt now
Not good. Gotta capitalize on opportunities like that against this offense. Can't rely on the refs.
The ref cost us 7 points. Unbelievable how many different ways the Lions can get screwed.
and we did not get a single point.
Got to capitalize!
What's new? The refs suck!!! 21-7
It's frustrating to know it too
My heart dropped into my stomach there. I thought the refs were gonna give the fans that unnecessary roughness call.
the Saints receiver would've had a chance at the tackle had he not stopped playing at the whistle. I was pissed at first too but the replay shows all the Saints players stopped.
Ok, at the very worst. 17-7.
Can't believe the Saints line can't get called for holding or hands to the face ever. That was particularly gratuitous against Corey there.
Sooo many holds by the Saints OL. Also, TACKLE THE FUCKING BALLCARRIER!!
New Orleans is coming up with some crazy catches.
And that was a crap defensive holding call
Would have just contributed to the off-setting penalties there, but it was ridiculous. Held up Fairley and then took out his legs. Textbook 15-yarder that didn't get called.
It was about as obvious as you'll see. Granted, it would have been included in the offsetting fouls. But still, you've gotta at least make the call.
can we stop them on third and short? Where's Mattison when you need him?
Too bad the answer changes on fourth down
I didn't see either of the calls the actually made, and they missed a blatant chop block.
Hold on Suh, no?
HOLDING, refs effing us.
Can we ban every poster who whines about holding? Ultimate loser's play.
Yeah, you could whine about that on almost every play in every game.
Are only showing up when the hold was the reason a play worked at all.
It is if it wasn't so blatant, and wasn't an observation made by non-interested parties about this Saints team all year.
i know holding can be an ambiguous call, but did you see the play?
Because his don't work.
I didn't see anything after the brunette.
Well, other than the made kick.
Avril really needs to stop being a bonehead.
It has to be hard to cover both Graham and Colston in the slot.
Would be a victory.
Good lord. Another challenge we have to waste and then a BS penalty
EDIT: Don't have to waste one because it is scoring play.
apparently seperating the ball is no longer an option
Under two minutes anyway.
