Under two minutes anyway.
OT: Lions-Saints Playoff Game Open Thread
It seemed he just touched the head. Not helmet to helmet and not on the QB so how is that unnecessary roughness?
Ball rolled on the ground.
/Prays the Superdome uses the same replay official for NFL games and NCAA bowl games.
Incomplete but what's the penalty? I didn't see a face mask there at all.
I didn't know lightly touching an opponent's helmet was a flag. Is that seriously a rule?
Edit: no sarcasm...
Who thinks that's a catch.
+1000 mgopoints for you
Penalty for the hand hitting the face when both guys are flipping over through the air??? Horse shit
He rubbed his hand on his forehead. No hard contact. Nothing dirty. Ridiculous
That's a bullshit penalty.
and threw a flag for lightly brushing his helmet?
We've turned the League into powderpuff football if that's a penalty.
I try not to complain about referees but that was an awful call.
That if it was going in your favor you'd be raising an eyebrow.
I'm not sure it's a horrible call; it may be to the letter of the rule. The rule may just be ridiculous. It's why so many guys are throwing for 5,000 yards- it's become flag football. I'm all for protecting players and avoiding blows to the helmet and such. I'm not so keen on rules just put in there to make the NFL more like arena football.
Forced the FG. Excellent
Best pass D I've seen from the lions in a while on the past several plays. And that includes that bullshit penalty.
Can't complain aboiut that.
by the back judge
If you would have told me we'd be up 14-10 at half before the game I would have been ecstatic, but I am a lil disappointed that we aren't up by more at this point
Can't count on forcing turnovers all the time, but a nice half by the Lions. Impressed they were able to keep them out of the endzone on that final drive.
this has been poorly officiated towards the Lions.
NBC. We beat the Broncos. They ARE in the playoffs. Stop with the "lions didn't beat a playoff team" bs please.
I heard the same stat about the Patriots yesterday on ESPN. Noone considers the Broncos a playoff team.
These hooligans have clearly never watched the lions play. CJ has been playing all over the field the entire season.
"The Lions didn't beat a playoff team all year."
Wrong Bob-o, we beat every team in the AFC west....I am guessing one of those teams went to the playoffs.
That was a subconscious jab at the Broncos.
"They didn't beat a playoff team all year. What's that, Denver fans? They beat the Broncos? Well, in that case... Nah, I stand by my comment"
The ESPN radio commentators are busy sucking Brees' dick while trying to dong-punch the Lions. I swear, what happened to just calling the game. I swear the guy on the radio jizzed himself when NO scored.
They basically sound like pinochle but with a ball.
No one gives a crap what you think.
Leggeaux second half! Get Stafford the ball, he's straight swagwaggin this offense up and down the field
And that weight loss center commercial is really fucking disturbing.
Can't win if you don't tackle
Tackle for god sakes
lions D-line is getting held like crazy
Holy hell this tackling is atrocious. We need Mattison to instill a swarming mentality. I've seen so many times where a Saints player is floundering with a guy hanging onto his foot and waving the ball around while the rest of our D just watches. Go take the ball!!
I remember when we were leading this game, and then we let Brees throw to wide open receivers.
On offense this year, and don't take all defensive players, someone should be shot.
....say, Matt Millen, retroactively?
drafting someone who knows how to stop the run/tackle would be nice
We get called for a holding and no facemask?
kidding. Did they touch the receiver helmet or not?
it is completely legal to try and rip someone's neck off, but completely illegal to brush your hand slightly over the logo of the opposing player.
bull shit calls.....
I hate the Saints and how everyone that calls their games are constantly sucking Brees' dick. He's good, but he plays in an offense that calls on him to pass SO many times. Oh, and very surprised we finally got a call on the punt return.
too bad they arn't calling the holding calls on the saints o-line :(
