After the refs picked up this insanely obvious interference call on Dallas, can there be any doubt that the NFL had the game in the bag for Dallas?

Sucked. I wanted them to do much better. Frustrating.


Don't like excuses but the Bungs were totally beat up with 5 key Starters out and then losing Maualuga today made 6 key players and Dalton was left to throw to 3rd team receivers. AJ Green alone would have made this a different game but that didn't happen. All in all a fun year though, had higher hopes but us Bung fans are used to it. :lol:


Yea. Believe me - I know about injuries. Sucks.

This is becoming a bad habit for me. A third 3-1 Wild Card weekend in a row for me. And one of my four divisional match-ups is going to happen, which is shocking in of itself.

Colts defeat Broncos
Another (not-so) stunning Manning early playoff defeat.


I'm sticking with it. Luck beats the man he replaced in another early Manning exit from the playoffs.

Ravens vs. Pats

I'm sure Brady is cussing to himself. Any team but the one with the only winning record against Brady's Bunch in the playoffs. but I'm still taking the Patriots. They are one of my Super Bowl picks. I'm sticking to it.

Cowboys vs. Packers

If the Cowboys are good enough to beat Seattle at home, then by all means they are capable enough to do it in Lambeau Field. Hate them, but I'm picking the Cowboys in an upset.

Panthers vs. Seahawks

Could be a trap game for a lot of people. If the Panthers can hang 27 on the league's best defense, then they have a shot at, oh wait, Seattle is at home. Seahawks win.

Look at it from this angle and tell me if you still believe that. Look at it a few times.

Facemask doen't negate the defensive player never attempting to find the ball... that's PI..

and had they not called it PI because of the facemask... then they are offsetting penalties and its 3rd down...

So I'm guessing we can expect the start of the Brock Osweiler era? :lol:

Well, that may not be a bad thing. He's basically the last of an emerging QB class of 2012 that hasn't proven himself yet. With 3 years under Manning's tutoring, he just might turn out to be pretty good. No need to hit the panic button just yet I don't think.

I'm not thrilled at this at all. Feels very much like the wrong move. He's done great things in his role, but I feel like we needed a more offense-oriented guy. And we lose Vangio, which I think hurts. Wonder if Rathman will become OC.

I feel like this is just the guy that indicated he'd be a yes-man the most for York.

Time will tell. Not holding out much hope for a big 2015 season.

I think this is just the beginning....

My money is on York and Balke not being pleased that Harbaugh, after benching Smith, wasted all those offensive weapons, and eventually had to change an offensive scheme designed to exploit them... just to accommodate his boys (Kaepernick) inability to run the more complicated WC offense..

I bet that is the reason he was fired, *cough*.... mutually agreed to part ways..

York and Balke want to win with a WC style niners team and Balke was getting talent that fit that scheme. Harbaugh simply wanted to win any way he could, even if it meant screwing with the delicate balance and timing of the more complicated scheme they were running successfully when he put Kaep in.


Tomsula said he's gonna run the ball... that means Gore is coming back (Tomsula loves him).. but it gives a green light for Balke to clean house of aging and ineffective offensive weapons.. I'd expect Boldin, Davis and Crab to be gone.. (maybe not Davis.. )

Running the ball keeps Kaep from getting in too much trouble... keeps him healthy and doesn't further expose him to devaluation due to his passing limitations... so Balke can figure out how to trade him...


It's a testament to just how fucked up the 9ers are internally that Vic Fangio would rather leave the 9ers for the Washington Redskins: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... for-dc-job

I chose the Seahawks over the Patriots at the beginning of the year, and I'm sticking with that prediction. However, I would be happy to see Brady win a 4th title. Gonna be a hell of a Super Bowl either way.

I am, but I'm also a fan of Football in general. I have to acknowledge that he is a once-in-a-lifetime QB whose mastery probably won't be seen again for a very long time, and I would be happy to see him finish out on top. He's been entertaining to watch regardless that he's on the other side of a storied division rivalry.

Fact Finder wrote:NFL investigating if Patriots used deflated footballs in AFC Championship game

FoxNews.com

1-19-2015

The NFL has confirmed it is looking into charges the New England Patriots cheated Sunday night when they clinched a trip to the Super Bowl Sunday night by using deflated footballs.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed the probe Monday, following the AFC championship game, in which the Patriots demolished the Indianapolis Colts, 45-7. The charge was first made Sunday night, when an Indianapolis reporter that the NFL had seized at least one game ball from the AFC championship game to examine whether pigskins were intentionally deflated to make them easier to throw and catch.

“The NFL is investigating the possibility,” Bob Kravitz, of WTHR, tweeted, adding that, “at one point the officials took a ball out of play and weighed it.”


If the Patriots did cheat, it would not be the first time. The team was penalized a first-round draft pick, fined $250,000 and head coach Belichick was personally fined $500,000 after an investigation by the NFL determined the team had illegally videotaped their opponents hand signals during a 2007 game.

And unsubstantiated accusations of cheating have long dogged the team, stemming from their Super Bowl wins in 2002, 2004 and 2005. The St. Louis Rams claimed the team illegally videotaped their walk-through practices prior to the 2002 game, and players on the other defeated opponents have said the Patriots seemed to have inside knowledge of their playbooks.


http://www.centralmaine.com/2015/01/19/ ... id-sunday/

Just putting a positive spin on this for fun. The ball girl for that game lives 15 miles from me.

Of course, they're not going to tell the Pats they can't play. The Powers-That-Be will probably tell them behind closed doors that they have to throw the game. It'll stay close for entertainment purposes, then the Seahawks will repeat. Can't beat the best? Tarnish them.

What do 'Spygate' and 'Deflategate' have in common?

Josh McDaniels was the offensive coordinator in both accounts.

Food for thought.

Entertaining Superbowl- (minus the halftime show) So many twists...
Seattle trying an inside pick at the 1 yard line on 2nd down and a timeout was one of the most boneheaded play I think I have even seen.

Congrats NE

Marshawn Lynch had 102 yards at that point and had just run the ball 5 yards.. and you don't give him the ball again on the 1/2 yard line??

Derrell Bevel... soon to be Ex O.C. at Seattle... stupidest play call ever...


Xmas just came early for NE...

Unfuckingbelievable. Your 2nd and goal from the one yard line. Your team has "The Beast" in the backfield who has over 100 yards already, after a timeout at that, and you throw a pass into the most congested part of the field? Motherfucker Jim Brown that will go down as the biggest fuck up in super bowl history. Seattle had might as well gift wrapped and presented the BeliCheats with the Lombardi Trophy prior to the play. If I was Paul Allen, the fuck up who made that call wouldn't have made it out of the state of Arizona with his job intact. I can imagine 150 million people who were watching at home, at a bar, etc all had the same reaction when that play happen. WTF!

Truly baffling from all angles. The pick wasn't shocking. That was a great break and a great/easy read on the football. It was easily telegraphed. Good for the undrafted rookie to get that job done. The call itself will go down as the worst call in Super Bowl history. It's not even close. Givin' the situation and who you are/what got you there and neglecting it to win a SB is absurd and truly as shocking as it gets from a football; logical standpoint to anyone who has ever followed or understands the game.

what's even more galling is that both HC Carroll and OC Bevell have said they "liked the matchups"... good lord..

Lockette is a speedster... not a physical, technique guy... he's the LAST WR you want on a quick slant that requires technique and physicality..

stupid, stupid call..


I'd be really surprised if Carroll hasn't lost some of his locker room because of this... and even more surprised if Bevell is still the OC next season.

It absolutely is all rigged. It has been for years now. And it's NOT just the mafia tampering with games. It's the leagues themselves staging the games the way that the WWF and all of those pro-wrestling leagues did/do.
