should be some good games today. I just hope the cowboys lose.
OT: Week 17 NFL open thread
It's an abomination that there's no college football today. Why am I forced to watch bad teams play the good teams that are all resting their starters in place of the ROSE BOWL and the like?
but you're putting probably the most boring/meaningless week of the NFL season on TV in place of BCS bowls
on Jan 1st is not right. I prefer college football over the NFL by a huge margin, rather pissed that I am stuck watching the NFL today. I honestly can't think of one thing that makes the NFL more appealing than college ball.
Im posting from section 107 in Lambeau field. Flynn will start insted of ARod. My blind faith in the team says we're going to keep this streak alive. Go Pack Go!
The fudge packers blow. I like the NFL, but would much rather watch bowl games today. Many of us work tomorrow! I would rather watch paint dry than three fudge packers play without Rodgers. Didn't the packers worship farva (supertroopers)?
He can't even handle kickoffs. McCarthy might cut his ass at halftime.
Awesome to see Arrington playing and making a big catch for the Saints!
These are the worst refs I have ever seen. Both fumble calls were ridiculous.
As I type this justice was served. Pick by Smith.
Titus Young with a FANTASTIC touchdown catch which was, of course, called incomplete.
Fucking Fuck. Just... Fuck.
Complete bullshit. Fucking fuckety fuck.
And we get jobbed by those BS fumble calls. Now the Lions lose a TD because they can't challenge. Great catch by Titus Young.
a steaming pile of dog feces served up by these refs.
What a bunch of zebra stripped bums. Someone should find them after the game and kick their ass. Fuck them. I beside myself. This is chicken shit.
Like a crazy balaclava thing?
These refs are perfect evidence that Goodell is the worst fucking commissioner ever. Fuck him and his biased refs.
FFFFFFFFuck!!!! This shit!!!!
How do we manage to get screwed over multiple times in the same game
officials as well. No excuse for them not to buzz down to the officials to look at the play again. The replay booth had plenty of time to look at it. No idea what they are being paid for, that is inexcuscable.
The play does not have to be challenged to be reviewed, and quite frankly that shouldn't have required a challenge even if they had one.
No, it's not. They don't have the option of calling down a review of a ruling of 'not touchdown'. It's on the fucking incompetent shitbird ref who was 5 feet away but couldn't manage to see the second foot come down. Fuck these refs. Fuck them in their ficking asses
Ask a 3 year old. Did he catch it? Did he get 2 feet down? Yes and yes. How the hell can the nfl watch this shit go down and be ok with it? I don't give a flying fuck if the packers are your premier team, calling fumbles that aren't, and incomplete passes that are touchdowns makes your league look stupid as hell.
I'm a Packers fan and I think that was BS call too.
and don't give a shit what you think...
I'm going to go burn one and hopefully calm down...Fuck this..
Schwartz is gonna get his butt booted before this game is over.
I'm really hoping he just lays into the refs in the post-game conference. I don't care if he ends up sounds like a crazy conspiracy theorist, that's how pissed I am right now.
Wow. Just wow. Fuck this. I am done. I am going for a run before I put my fist through a wall or my tv.
This has been ths worst officiated game this season. WTF.
MIke Pereira is a totally fucking moron. Listening to him makes my ears bleed.
He is a fucking retard. Of course he is going to side with his paid off buddies. What a chicken shit crock.
Get the fucking college rules. It is not that hard. However that still doesn't fix the home cooking in green bay.
Time to rise above the shit and win anyway. Go Lions!
Hard to beat the pack and their zebra colored buddies.
It is but it isn't impossible.
the booth could buzz down to the officials on any play to look at again, regardless of whether there is a challenge or not. Or is that not the case?
If no one challenges, the only plays they'll review are scoring plays. Since they called young OOB, it wasn't considered a scoring play. #totallybatshitinsane/retarded
Only in the last 2 minutes of a half. Or on plays thatg are ruled as scoring plays on the field.
chalk that up as another reason why I prefer college football over the NFL. That is bullshit, they should have they same rules as college where any play can be reviewed.
Sucks to not being watching any bowl games on January 1st, would much rather being watch those than meaningless NFL games for the most part and bullshit officiating.
every other league when you get 3-4 horseshit calls against one team you at least get one makeup call. Refs must have some money riding on this game.
If the lions win after all this shit, they deserve a first round bye.
Holy shit we got a break. Missed FG
This game is such BS that one of my huge Packers fan classmates said the following on Twitter:
"#Lions getting absolutely robbed by the refs today. #packerfan #truth"
incorrect has nothing to do with calling penalties. That is just sheer incomptence, compounded by the retarded review rules in the NFL. Your post makes no sense.
And while there is a difference, not every incompletion/spot is 100% in a refs mind. They can change the game by spotting the ball an extra 6 inches forward. That works as a makeup call and forces green bay to use a challenge on that if its for a first down or the like.
mine that said the Lions dirty play throughout the season impacted those calls. His post made no sense though, because the plays that were missed were not penalty calls.
The major issue with the refs was 2 fumbles that were called the wrong way, one was obviously worng which forced Scwartz to waste a challenge. The second one was inconclusive on review but looked to go against the lions. Because the challnges were wasted a no doubt about it touchdown was called incomplete later and couldn't be challenged.
Have loved the Lions for 35 years. This game is a collective example of this organization. All I need is Eddie Murray to miss the game winner. Circle complete.....
I swear that's the first time all year they actually called a roughin/unneccessary roughness when someone hit Stafford. He might finally be getting the respect to get the calls.
As i write this he gets hit on a delay of game...Wheres that flag?
Edit: they gave it to him.
GB fans actually booing these penalties. Funny.
we're up two. lets do this
A pass rush would be nice. Remember when we sacked qb's? Me neither.
Holy shit....suck it McCarthy.
Doesn't it feel like one of these teams has to give up sometime? There's a whole f-ing quarter left.
Get a damn stop!
with the Rodgers Discount Double Check.
finally makes a play
Suh is twice the person as Tim Tebow.
The Green Bay QB is a better individual just on the fact of being sacked by such a guy a Suh
Crazy situation in the dolphins jets game. If jason taylor went out of bounds at the 1 rather than scoring it would not have been reviewed and the play would have stood. It was before the 2 minute mark and jets were out of timeouts so no challenge possible but because all scoring plays are reviewed it gets overturned. I just think thats crazy.
Exactly. The idea is to get the play right, but there becomes a game inside the game with all these weird dumbass loopholes for what gets reviewed and what doesn't. And why the hell should coaches only get 2 reviews if they get both of them right? The whole thing is asinine and an embarrassment to what is supposed to be the "top dog" of all the pro leagues. At least in the college system you don't get in these situations where everyone knows what happened but because of the stupid rules, no one can do anything about it. You see a call is wrong, make the shit right. It's not hard.
Wow. Patriots score 49 unanswered after falling 21-0 in the first quarter.
The Packers are the dirty team today.
needs to spend the whole offseason with a jugs machine.
seriously, this guy has to lead the league in drops
GODDAMNIT Pettigrew, why do you keep doing stuff like th... WOOOOOO, Great job Pettigrew, hell of a ca... C'MON Pettigrew, stop false startin... WOOT Pettigrew nice hands...
Anyone know where that was from? I know I have seen it somewhere. Perhaps some commercial ...
Enough time for stafford and co. We do have 2 timeouts left.
Great game, lions.
What a terrible throw.
Calvin JOhnson 3 yards shy of lions single season yards record. Hell of a show by the offense today, especially since screwed out of a touchdown early. Where the hell is the defensive line.
well that just ruined my day, and it wasnt againist green bays best squad. Whatever lets tear shit up in playoffs, go lions!
Hard to get excited for the playoffs after watching your defense get shredded by a back-up QB. I knew our DBs were not great, but what happened to our vaunted D-line during the last part of the season?
