Zenaya is doing a terrible anthem.

Gotta love the O chant, too bad Zenaya didn't cooperate.

I was the only one in the bar doing the O chant. People looked at me funny.

Lance Dunbar is done for the season. I guess it is time for Phillip Tanner or Joseph Randle to step up in the backup role.

Do you think Murray can stay healthy for the rest of the season?

I would be surprised if he does, but it would be nice. If he stays healthy it is probably because Garrett decided the Cowboys needed to abandon the running game. 

 

The Cowboys actually running the ball was the best thing about yesterday. I really wish Garrett would do it more often because he would have a better record if he ran the ball more.

Pats/Texans almost turned out well, but Texans couldn't pull it out. Though how he refs missed both holding AND a facemask on the same guy on that one play late in the game boggles the mind.

Geno finally gets benched and...the Jets still suck horribly.

Ouch on the Vernon Davis tackle that just happened. The DB pulled him down with One arm wrapped around his leg and the other tugging on Davis' dick.

So Chiefs start strong, then true to form, begin falling apart and have given up a 14 point lead, and now behind by 7. ugh.

Bad job by the officials, but in the end, the 'Skins still would have converted if Garcon doesn't fumble the ball.

I don't mind that Tomlin got fined $100,000. Fair. However, a draft pick being taken away, especially anything higher than a 7th, is a bit much. At first I figured it was a subtle threat that Goodell "leaked" to Schefter, but now it seems I was wrong...

I agree - draft picks shouldn't be taken away for something like that.  How about a rule where you award the TD in the game based on the refs' judgement?

 

Giants to be one game out (6-7) following this weekend!  Lions over Eagles; Bears over Cowboys and Giants over Chargers.  Still technically 2 behind since they lose all tie-breakers with Dallas but whatever.  Their only shot is to win out and have the Eagles and Cowboys finish 1-3 or worse (to end up 8-8).  They play each other in Week 17 so they need to both go 0-3 at that point or if one of them goes 1-2, the other team needs to win that game.  Never gonna happen.  LOL.

Actually, that's already a rule. If the officials feel a "palpably unfair act" denied a team the chance to score, they can use their judgement and award a touchdown. The officials should have, at the very least, flagged Tomlin. From what I read, that crew is gonna take a hit in their grading for that game.

I read that but I think they should specifically define it to include someone who is not one of the 11 members of the team on the field at the start of the play in question who interferes with an opposing player during the play in question.  "Palpably unfair act" is way too loose.  I wonder if it has ever even been called...

Directly from NFL.com:

 

Touchdown Awarded (Palpably Unfair Act)

  1. When Referee determines a palpably unfair act deprived a team of a touchdown. (Example: Player comes off bench and tackles runner apparently en route to touchdown.)

 

This is why most people blew off Flacco's remarks during the Super Bowl, telling his teammates to run on the field if the 49ers broke a return. It wouldn't have mattered.

I am surprised anybody actually took Flacco seriously. It was a pretty damn obvious joke.

Steelers are lucky Tomlin didn't get suspended. Also they should fine the officials for not calling anything on the play.

I figure we will see a lot more flags for this now after the officials who didn't flag him are getting some changes in their reviews which I'm sure affects their placements and pay. I didn't see that they had taken the draft pick yet, just that they are still discussing it. This is definitely a shot from the league telling everyone to watch where you are from now on.

I don't think you can say that Jones would have definitely scored without Tomlin's actions. He may have been run down by the 20 or so. Giving a TD there isn't the right move. A penalty on Tomlin certainly is, though.

That was a really nasty hit on Rob Gronkowski's knees/legs to take him out of the game. I wish the NFL's new concussion rules didn't force more defenders to take those sorts of leg shots in order to get receivers down, but that's what they've created.

It's not really saying much, but Josh Gordon is easily the best WR in the entire history of the Browns. He's been breaking team and NFL records over the last four games. If he can keep his head on straight off the field, he can easily break more of them.

With a better quarterback, the sky is the limit for him. The biggest tragedy will be if they don't find one.

The Bills took out one potential candidate. :(

It's insane how well the offense can run when they use Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron frequently, but that hasn't been in the Browns gameplan since their first two wins of the season. If all goes well, they can make the Pats eat up too much of the clock so they can't overcome this 12 point defecit.

The referees did a great job in winning this game. They fought hard for this victory.

That was a horrible PI call, but something like this would only happen to the Browns.
