      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Steelers got beat.  The TD callback was correct.   Big Ben/Tomlin then mess up the ensuing play and end up tossing ball into 3 defenders.  Easy pick.

Mike Lombardo, who once worked for Patriots, said from Day One the Pats teach: “catch/possession first THEN go for the score.”  If you don’t do it that way you’re benched.  Same for practice or game.  

Belichek covers the angles.

Same ‘Hero Move’ stretch at the pylon from Derek Carr cost the Raiders big time yesterday.   He prolly wont do that again

Combined with most of the Steelers planning on the play being a spike.....    No time to audible a play change.    Outcoached ?

Yea, w/o seeing it again I gotta go with a Buddy this morning who mentioned that most of Steelers stood up at line on the snap.  Ouch.  

Can’t be doing that stuff in big games.  That prolly cost them home field in playoffs.

Embarrassing to watch the game. All three phases of the game were awful. Still have a long shot at playoffs but I just don't see us beating Dallas next week.

Just too many injuries to overcome and an O line that leaks like an old man in depends.

But

If the non touchdown had happened the other way, to the Pats,  They would have just scored on the next play instead of melting down.  The rule might suck, but it is the rule.  If that play had been on the five yard line it would have been incomplete, so it should be in the end zone as well.

Time of possession: Army, 46:00; SDSU, 14:00
by ShermanOaksND (2017-12-23 20:54:50)

In reply to: Nice game Army. *  posted by pasteven


Offensive plays: Army, 91; SDSU, 31. Army had as many first downs (31) as SDSU had total plays. And yet Army needed a TD and 2PC with 0:18 left to go ahead to stay. They added a defensive TD on the last play to make the final 42-35.

Seahawks showed up to play today. Need to beat the Az Cards next week and have Atlanta lose for a trip to the post season. I can't believe I have to root for the Panthers (blech) Almost as bad as having to root for Da Beers.

Two things from that game: More yards in penalties than yards of offence? Getting into the playoffs will, at best, cost ya a few spots in the draft, and I have precisely no idea of exactly what pass interference is and is not anymore.

Steelers release James Harrison.  He clears waivers and the Patriots sign him. If the AFC championship game is Steelers v Patriots this could be very interesting.

Bolts miss playoffs.  Blame the kicker I guess.   They went 9-3 after the 0-4 start.   Rivers with 4500 yds passing and the O-line leads NFL with fewest sacks allowed.   Weird, at start of season we thought the O-line sucked.

My seats at the game. 18 degrees at kickoff. Then, the wind picked up. Light snow at the end. I’ll probably thaw out by Wednesday  

Oh, and the Eagles looked like crap. Files is NOT going to win in the postseason. Maybe the #3 (Sudfeld?) can do something, as he can move.

Well, the number of empty seats for a grudge match in Philly shows how important the game wasn’t. Not only did it not make the broadcast here, the updates were few and far between. Sister in Dallas said they turned it off during the first quarter and then watched the last of the 4th. 

Much as I dislike the Beagles, I was hoping to see an NFC Team progress in the playoffs. Guess it isn’t happening this year.

To be fair, I snapped that pick about 20-25 minutes before kickoff. By game time, the place was about 3/4 full. Still, not what I was hoping for. Last year, we sent them into the postseason with s Week 17 L. This year, they returned the favor. 

The funniest part was listening to WIP in the Uber ride back to 30th Street Station. Those guys were on fire. 

Philly fans put meaning in the word “fanatic”.

Caldwell gone.  Won four games against teams with winning records in four years.

I don't know if he was the problem, but after watching the second half of this season he clearly was not going to be the solution.

Bears fire John Fox.  Biggest non-surprise of the new year.  In his 3 years as head coach the Bears never won a game where they were the favorites.

At the Iggles game, I did notice something worth mentioning.

The beer vendors were carrying their tubs and selling their "ice cold Miller Lite" etc.

Looked in the tub and, sure enough, there was a layer of ice on top of the cans.  The temp was 18 degrees F at kickoff, with a windchill of something like 6.

I guess the ice was to keep the beer from freezing.

You people are sick. I’m still trying to figure out how they got the ball to drop in Times Square in 15-degree weather. I expected to see it shrinking upward.

No, it was too cold to snow. But our seat was in front of one of the walkthrough tunnels so we got the full blast of the wind.

My first professional football game was seeing the Iggles play the Cowboys... this was when Bobby Hayes was playing for the Cowboys.. 

We took the train from Devon where we lived to 30th Street Station and then walked to Franklin Field and sat on the shady side and froze our butts off... It was frigging cold...  the Iggles got beat then too!!

I’ve seen them play 3 times. Each time they lost. 

I shoulder this burden. It is my fault. For that reason, I will eschew playoff games, this year. I’ll just have to tough it out on the couch, in my den, with a fire and bowl of chili.

Yea but,  how many promoted teams in Premier League stay up for more than couple seasons?   There are exceptions but most promoted teams have no stars, no money, old/smallstadiums, aging B-level players and 18 y.o . academy kids.  Makes for shitty contests agst most of the Premier teams.

In addition, NFL and NBA teams have convinced fans that ‘tanking’ for 3-4 yrs is the  way to rebuild via top draft picks earned through being crap.   

Relegation a hard sell in this country.

Agreed. I know Foles is a pretty capable back up but the falcons defense showed up................fraid it'll be Atlanta in the SB again unless they really screw the pooch. I don't see the vikes or the aint's mustering up the offense necessary.....

Dirty Birds looked on their game agst Rams.  Julio & Sanu big weapons.   Desmond Trufant is back and that D is plenty tough.

Rams get a long passing game going and they only get better.  Gurley is great again.  Nice season.  McVay looked sharp/tricky with offense,   Wade Phillips put a good scheme together and kept the D fired up all year.

Aaron Donald ‘s a great NT.

Need your help-

A friend of mine has two tickets for the Superbowl. Both box seats. He paid $2,500 per ticket, which includes limo ride from your hotel (within 20 miles) to the stadium, lunch, dinner, a $400.00 bar tab, and full media passes. What he didn't realize when he bought them was that it would be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place.

It's at St. Paul's Church at 3 pm. Her name is Ashley. She’s 5'4", about 115 pounds, a good cook, loves to fish and hunt. She'll be the one in white...

Making a Case for Keenum - Houston was the only school to offer him a scholarship, Texans signed him to the practice squad, started some for Texans and Rams, Vikings picked him up for peanuts as an insurance policy.  I predict when his career is over he will make an even better coach.  Class guy, one of the best games ever. 

edit: 1st undrafted QB to win a playoff game.  how i love rooting for underdogs....

The Saints lost because of a rookie mistake. The Vikes won in spite of a totally rookie throw by their QB and 40 years on they still don't have a running game. Jeez...........

They might weasel by the Eagles but the Patriots will eat them alive.

Best result -and I say this as a long suffering Vikings fan- would be for them to lose in Philly rather than be humiliated at home.

I didn't get to watch the Steelers-Jags game, but from the discussion it seems the Steelers coached themselves out of another game.    They could convert 4th-and-longs, but not 4th-and-inches ?    Ben is huge.... if he breaks wind while receiving the snap count, it would propel him at least a few inches.

Those 4th down tries killed the Steelers. I can't why they tried to run wide on 4th and 1 yard. That gave the Jags room to move and get a TD.  Seems to me that the coaching was the main reason for the Steelers loss. Big Ben threw some amazing passes and generally was good despite the pick and fumble.

My GF has a god daughter that just started attending LSU and she was sending us selfies last night of her watching the Saints game from some bar in the French Quarter. When the game ended in that manner, we texted her to get out of the Quarter in a hurry. I'm sure things got ugly after that rude ending and not a time to be around drunk pissed Saints fans.
