I don't think many intelligent posters here think that the officials' awful calls would have changed the final result, but it definitely would have had an impact on how the game progressed. The team as a whole did not rise to the challenge. Unfortunately, you're associating a bunch of trolls that we here don't even like.

Cam has been holding on to the ball for too long, too often tries to force the play too happen, and has not shown that he can be a true leader as opposed to Voted Most Likely to Succeed. However, to completely ignore the loss of a Pro Bowl center (which statistically often means the death of a season for most teams), a veteran G poorly performing (now moved to C), and a rookie on the offensive line is a bit absurd. Top that with an entirely different offensive scheme that has proven to NOT be as successful as last season's means that it is a lot more than Cam's fault. To try and assign percentages would be foolish, as all must improve in order for the team to achieve success.

Also, I sat there during the Redskins game with a Skins fan and couldn't help but shake my head at some of the calls that were victimizing them (we had some bad ones ourselves, but their's were momentum killers). The following week I watch the Panthers get the same shafting that the Skins received (from the officials). Do you really think the game would have been as far out of reach if that return TD was overturned and the Panthers received the ball at their own 20 as the rules states they should've been? You don't have to be a homer to know when the zebras are getting hungry for some camera time.

Now go be terrible in FIFA <3

Not a problem man, always trying to help out the less educated and less informed. BTW if we are being nit-picking over calls I think MIller would have had about 3 more sacks if the blatant holding calls were made ala Greg O, but I guess a win is a win and no need to bicker.

Good Luck with that John Fox thing.

Miller's low tackle was not flagged.

yes it was,
The 15 yard penalty was given to him for a low hit

Good Luck with that John Fox thing.

Thx I guess having Manning locked up for the next 5 years was a good idea, good luck with that ron rivera thing btw. Seems to be going really smoothly for you guys.
