:laugh: Hey, that looked like he was down before he went over? :unsure-1:

So far, so good for the Texans, 3-0. Yeah, yeah, I know, The Cardinals and Falcons are 3-0 too. :laugh:

Congrats to you and JB as your teams are playing well. My Broncos are about where I expected. They have been in every game, but they have a brutal schedule.

Still early in the season, anything can happen ie. injuries, replacement refs, etc.

He was down, but since nobody else made him fall down and nobody touched him he was able to keep moving forward. His momentum carried him into the endzone without him being touched so it counts. If he wasn't already in the endzone, he could have gotten up and ran in - as long as nobody touched him while he was down.

Always happy to see the Eagles lose. :)

Any comments on these replacement refs and what happened in the Packers-Seahawks game Monday? :blink:

It was the wrong call and wrong interpretation of the rule. The refs stated that they both had control of the ball at the same time, where then it is given to the offense (kinda like the tie goes to the runner in baseball). Seattle really didn't have control of the ball. Unfortunately with replay there was no way to disprove this as it is a judgement call.

I think everyone has been waiting for the replacement refs to really screw up and cost a team the game. This happened for Green Bay and it can be debated for New England on Sunday night (field goal for Baltimore went over the post). In my opinion these refs need to get more consistent and get more control over the game. There are a lot of heated instances on the field and some cheap shots happening that I think would be reduced with the real refs. I am waiting for someone to get seriously hurt because of the lack of control by these refs (What happened to Oakland's Darius Heyward-Bey is a good example).

Yeah, that was pretty scary; I wonder if he'll end up with any long-lasting effects to his brain down the road. :unsure:

At least the replacement refs have the excuse of being out of their league, what excuse do the replay officials have after viewing that replay? At least some can admit they didn't win:

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch stunned at replay of controversial final play Monday night

18 hours ago

SEATTLE Several hours after the completion of one of the more memorable games in Monday Night Football history, Marshawn Lynch was sitting in a private room in the back of the Metropolitan Grill, celebrating a thrilling, last-second victory with friends and family members over big steaks and fat lobsters.

Then, with the flick of a remote control, Big Brother appeared and left a rancid taste in the Seattle Seahawks halfback's mouth.

A waitress pointed the remote at the large mirror on the wall behind Lynch, and it suddenly morphed into an enormous, high-definition television screen. Within seconds, Lynch craned his neck and joined his dining companions in viewing a replay of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson's 24-yard touchdown pass to wideout Golden Tate, giving the Seahawks a 14-12 triumph as time expired and sending 68,218 fans at CenturyLink Field into hysterics.

As Lynch watched Packers safety M.D. Jennings snatch the pass out of the sky and pull it to his chest while Tate, who had blatantly pushed off against Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields, belatedly latched on one arm at a time, the running back's eyes grew big and his jaw dropped low. The room was dead silent as the realization gripped Lynch and his companions: Like most of the viewing public, they now understood that the Seahawks had received an extraordinary gift from the replacement officials.

"We didn't win that game," someone at the table said, and nobody made a peep to challenge him.

By the time Lynch left the restaurant early Tuesday morning and, while waiting for his ride to arrive, reassured a group of Packers fans on Second Avenue almost apologetically that their team would bounce back from this bitter defeat, it was clear the league's already problematic officiating lockout had reached critical mass.

Dramatic as it may sound, it's quite possible that history will look back on Tate's illusory jump-ball touchdown as the moment the NFL jumped the shark.

The outcry over the replacement officials' game-deciding call (and the failure of the non-replacement replay officials to overturn it) crystallized the brewing anger toward NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the owners he represents, whose collective insistence upon securing a favorable contract with the regular officials has clearly compromised the game's integrity.

I just saw on the morning news that the lock-out is over.

I think the fans at Lambeau Field are about ready to explode if they have one more missed call by a "regular" ref in this game especially after they got screwed out of the win in last week's game with Seattle.

Question: Why wasn't that play that was a fumble (which the ref made a bad call on) able to be reviewed by replay? Are touchdowns the only plays reviewed?

That catch by GB's Jones near the end was incredible considering the pass interference.

Green Bay wins 28-27...happy for them!

I assume you are referring to the kickoff return that Sproles fumbled....if they ruled it a fumble on the field then they would review. Since they ruled him down, then it comes from the team to challenge and GB was out of challenges.

Touchdowns and turnovers are all reviewed, but the play has to be ruled a turnover to get reviewed.

After last week's games, I was hoping things would end with the two Harbaugh brothers (Jim-49ers/John-Ravens) in the Superbowl! :w00t:

All right, who are y'all rooting for?

speaking of conspiracy theories .. it is much easier to have the NFL set up the harbaughs in the finals ... LOL ... i think the niners will win ... the baltimore defense is good, but kaepernick is fast and should be able to get around them .... should be a good game though!

I don't think so, but it is funny how both teams ended up winning with a score of "28". :laugh: Twenty-eight (28) also happens to be the score both my and Flo's teams (Texans & Seahawks) lost with last week. :wink: :cry:

I guess I'll root for the Ravens, but I'll be happy for either team in the end so long as it's a good game. :)

Don't forget that Jon Jones' big brother plays for the Ravens. I don't know if that will be more likely to sway people towards or away from the Ravens, but there it is anyway! :laugh:

Super Bowl XLVII:

Yeah, speaking of conspiracy theories, what about the timing of that power outage! :Whistle: It was like someone wanted to break the momentum of the Ravens' 28-6 lead! And things did begin looking bleak after the lights finally came back on until the Ravens finally stopped the 49ers' run and goal attempts at the very end and got the ball back. I didn't breathe easy until those last 4 seconds went to zero...the stress of it all! :laugh:

Congrats to John Harbaugh and the Ravens, and to Joe Flacco who got Superbowl MVP! :)

Score: 34-31

great game ... halftime show was good too ... i didn't think the lights were gonna come back on for at least an hour ... i think flacco or jones could have gotten mvp ... either way, great run for flacco ... took out luck, manning and brady ... all pro bowl qbs ... even tho he wasn't a pro bowler ...

Jacoby Jones did make those two fantastic runs/TDs...loved it! :laugh: Before the lights went out I was thinking Flacco or Jones, but I think Flacco deserved it. That whole team came through when it counted especially the defense at the end. I thought for sure Kaepernick would try to run it in on one of those last plays at the end, watching that was nerve racking! :laugh:

All the CBS-NFL commentators picked the 49ers to win except for Coach Cowher who picked the Ravens--just like most everybody had picked Brady and the Patriots to win in the AFC Championship game! Even Shannon Sharpe who played for Baltimore picked the 49ers, but that was just fine with Ray Lewis and the guys...they had asked Shannon before the game, "Shannon, you're not picking us are you? Because whoever you pick always loses!" :laugh:

What do you think Jim Harbaugh is going to do about the quarterback position for next year, will he leave Kaepernick in as starter or bring Alex Smith back?

I think it is Kaepernick's job now. He played well, he had the one INT which was a bad throw. But he brings another element to the game that Smith can't. He is one of those 'new breeds' for a QB, like RG3 and Russell Wilson.

I think Smith will be released or traded. I feel bad for him as his situation was not the norm, meaning most starters get their job back after injury. But sticking with Kaepernick worked and it is his team now.

I don't really know...is Smith really good, so-so, or what? Kaepernick and Flacco, from what I've seen of them, seem to have so much confidence when they throw the ball, I wish I had seen that from Matt Schaub (Texans) in the post season games. I may be judging him unfairly, I don't know, but I'm unsure of him now. :unsure:

He had a really good season in 2011 and was playing well in 2012 until he got a concussion. Before 2011, he was an average QB at best. I think having Harbaugh as a coach has helped him because Harbaugh used to be a QB. It's hard to say how he will do on another team, but I hope he does well.

I don't know what to think about Schaub. He has great weapons around him, but he does seem to lack the confidence that some of these other QBs are showing.
