Mr. Scot

Lesson learned from Game One

67 posts in this topic

Cheating will be more successful than usual as long as the replacement refs are policing the game, especially as done by defensive backs.

Both teams got away with some fairly blatant stuff tonight. I forget who, but some player predicted exactly that a day or two ago. Watching tonight, sure looked to me like he was dead on.

So if you're coaching right now, do you tell your guys to take advantage of this or do you take the high road?

if both teams can do it, its still a level playing field.

Murray looks like could have a big year.

I was listening to Sirius NFL network and they had a caller say the same thing the refs are not competent to handle an NFL game and said DB's should cheat and they will get away with it, the host of the show Gill?? said no way the ref's will make sure no cheating is going on...ha!

some blatant poo tonight but the last 10 minutes the refs called like 10 penalties though.

Adam Schefter on Sportscenter today reported that the "good" replacement refs were going to do the prime time games this weekend. And the others are doing the other games. Just FYI, something to look at Sunday.

By cheating you mean they are going to allow SOME forms of contact on the outside? I mean by definition it's cheating but I'm all for bringing a little balance back into the game. Seriously i think 3 of the 5 highest passing yardage marks were achieved last year.

The head ref was an 8th grade geography teacher from Idaho... Lol.

I thought he did a hell of a job.

Considering there was more focus on the refs than normal, there really were not any more significant controversies regarding officiating than we have seen in most regular season game.

    • Same people defending Hillary a few months ago are now drawing the conclusion that Flynn... and by association Trump... must be guilty of something because Flynn is getting immunity from the FBI. Works both ways. For the record... IMHO both Hillary and Trump are crooks.  If justice in this nation were truly blind these two politicians and their henchmen would be doing a long stretch in prison by now.
    • Slot receivers don't exist in 2 TE sets unless we're lining a TE on the outside which I haven't seen much out of the currently constructed Panthers. Maybe McCaffrey if he were to be split out wide but the Panthers usually keep a RB with Cam in-case Cam needs the extra protection and audibles the RB to block.  The Panthers would be best suited pairing KB with a speedster such as Charles Johnson, who's adept at running deep routes. Keep Howard and possible the RB (if not blocking) on short routes, KB on working the intermediate routes, Olsen running intermediate/deep routes, and Johnson running deep routes. That way Cam has a receiver on every level. All of this assumes Shula constructs a properly worked passing attack. 
    • Yes, that is correct. My point being Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Almost everyone calling for impeachment of Trump thinks it means to remove him from office. He would have to be impeached and then found guilty to do that. The impeachment alone does not remove him. And my original point, no one was bringing up the electoral college back then. It makes no sense. Because the popular would surely rid us of corrupt politicians, right?
