I wasn't being serious.

If that wasn't obvious, I apologize.

And if I seemed like I was snapping too much, I apologize as well. I'm a Weather Service certified weather spotter, along with doing some storm chasing and working on the emergency evacuation team at work because I know how sudden and devastating severe storms can be, so I can be a bit touchy on that subject.

Was there any clear foul on the play? I never saw a replay of it or anything but it looked like there was no WR even in the vicinity to catch it.

But the TE was and Gronk was being held. I'm just not sure the ball was close to catchable by Gronk regardless.

I think there should have been a penalty. The ball landed like 3 or 4 yards in front of Gronk, and he was not given a fair chance to try and go get it because he was being bear hugged.

That ball was a pick no matter what. Even if he hadn't been "held" he'd of had to come back (opposite his momentum) 2-3 yards and somehow get in front of the 2nd defender who the ball hit square in the chest.

The problem I have is, I don't think it deserved a 1st and goal from the 1 opportunity for NE, nor do I think it was catchable. But, yes, I do see where it was holding in the end zone.

They probably could've just called the hold, moved the ball 5 yards up and given the Pats one last shot. The penalty for defensive holding is different from PI.

Can you call holding more than 5 yards down field after the ball is thrown? I think the only option was PI, wasn't it?

You could be right about that. I just know there's a difference for defensive holding and PI as far as penalty assessed.

http://instagram.com/p/g4hEc-zeit/. Tough to say he couldn't adjust to the ball when he was being pushed back and tackled as the ball was still 10 yards from him. The defensive player undercut and had a play on the interception but to pick up the flag there is just horrible officiating. Gronk wasn't given a chance to make a play on the ball.

I am severely confused as to why the Falcons attempted a field goal in that situation... Even if they made it, they'd need an onside kick or quick stop and another score... If they missed, they would still need to score... :confused2:

They had 3 timeouts left and the two minute warning yet. Presumably they figured the odds of them making a fg and then either stopping New Orleans OR recovering an onside kick was a higher probability than converting a 4th and 15. I don't think it was crazy, but I probably would've gone for it there myself.

The bigger headscratcher was why New Orleans didn't run into the line 3 times at the end of the game so that Atlanta never could've gotten the ball back. Instead they kneel twice, and then Brees runs backwards for 11 yards on 4th down which actually put Atlanta at the 40 yard line. There was no reason Atlanta should've gotten the ball back at the end of the game.

I don't buy it--that makes absolutely no sense. They deserved to lose that game for that decision.

It makes sense, it's a matter of how confident you are in your defense vs your offense. In this situation, you've basically held NO in check (only 17 points given up). So, kick the toots, stop them, and you only have to get to about the 35 yard line for a GWFG.

Anyone else think this Denver-NE game started to turn over an idiotic and selfish play by Cromartie? At the end of the first half the hail mary that was well short of the end zone he dove to try to intercept it and hurt himself in the process. There was no need at all to try that except to pad the stats. Now the Denver secondary can't stop anything.

What a sucky way to end a game like that. I wanted one of those QBs to earn the win with a drive. Lame!

I agree that Welker is at fault there. He needs to get off his ass and run to that ball and catch it. Or at a minimum, run up there and be screaming sooner about clearing the way.

Yeah, but you'd think they could find a better matchup than Dallas-Oakland for the one Thursday of the year when everyone will be watching.

If I had to guess they know how the ratings work better than we do. The Det v Packer game everyone will be watching but the later games... guessing they don't get as many people tuning in.

I'm not even talking from a ratings standpoint, I just mean from an interesting football standpoint. I imagine everyone who doesn't live in the California area of the country see that the Raiders are playing and have the same reaction as me. yawn.

It's football on Thanksgiving so we're obviously gonna watch it, but throw us a bone, NFL!

Maybe that's the point--they know we don't want to watch it but will anyway. I mean, to be fair, they don't care about us at all--they care about our wallets.

Exactly. The thought is probably something along the lines of "everyone will be watching, Dallas already has one of the largest fanbases, we'll save some premier matchups for Sunday".

Of course they care about our wallets. If you're a fan you should delight that they do. It results in flex scheduling to show the best games of the year as the season unfolds, and also games like Denver/New England in prime time that are guaranteed to be good when schedules are set at the start of the year.

You're missing the original point. The original point was that yes, they want us to watch... But they will always choose our wallets over what we want as fans, hence my point about the Raiders game. They will do as little as possible (for us) in order to make as much money as they can. Thus, they will put the Raiders on Thanksgiving because they KNOW people will watch and then they can STILL put another team on a great matchup on a non-holiday.

To be fair, I don't have an idea how much scheduling the Raiders on Thanksgiving REALLY takes into account money, but my guess is it does. :mrgreen:

They need to have an AFC team on Thanksgiving every year so CBS can broadcast a game. It switches between Detroit and Dallas hosting the AFC team. It gets really tough when these teams only host 2 AFC teams a year. They're stuck with this setup until they decide to not have Dallas and Detroit host it every year.

What I really don't like is how Detroit hosts Green Bay every other year. Spread it around a bit because it's almost like having 3 permanent Thanksgiving teams.

Well, Detroit has been hosting a Thanksgiving game pretty much since the 30's and EVERY year since 1945, so that will never change. Cowboys since 1966, so that will never change either. They DO need to do a better job of mixing up the opponents more.

This game is pretty brutal. The other games don't get me excited, either. Some really bad teams are playing today.

The only things worse than Green Bay's offense without Aaron Rodgers are their defense and Rodgers' mustache.
