Mr. Scot

Lesson learned from Game One

67 posts in this topic

Yeah, he did surprisingly well, besides being informal in the calls. But I just thought his occupation was funny and random as hell.

The one I liked was when it was an offsides penalty and when he announced it he said it was a 5 yard penalty "good enough for a 1st down" (which it was). But it was kind of refreshing to hear some different terminology.

But as others have pointed out, these guys were probably the cream of the crop. Before the weekend is out, we are likely to see some serious snafus. I just hope they don't go against us.

For one season? Right now? Yeah. For the next 10+ years? Obviously Cam.

But, I was also stating if we had a QB like Eli from 04-08 the sky would've been the limit with our defenses.

Wow I can't believe that. Newton has proven that he can make all the NFL throws. If his defense can help him get to a stage as big as the superbowl I have no doubt that he would lead us to victory like he did at Auburn.

Can Eli do this?

That's great and everything. But, Eli won a Super Bowl with the worst rushing attack in the NFL last year, a mediocre offensive line, and a low ranked defense for part of the season. They finally turned it up in the playoffs. But still, Eli was a damn beast, he had like 10 4th quarter comebacks. I love Cam but come on man.

It's a passing league, you can win the superbowl now without a run game. He's a great QB but his receivers were solid as well.

The NY Giants defense won them both superbowls. Eli was a solid game manager.

Eli is a better quarterback than Cam and i would take him over Cam and Payton.

Victor Cruz was a beast before Eli threw to him? Na man. This dude was a nobody. Eli threw for 4,958 yds. Hes a game manager? No, Alex Smith is a game manager. Eli Manning is a top 5 QB.

According to Adam Shefter, the Panthers/Bucs game will have the group of the worst replacement officials. Where as tonights game had the group of the best. I'm scared. I know I am going to get so pissed over their terrible idiotic calls.
