It's pretty hard to take the NFL seriously these days. That's two games this year that went to the wrong team. Completely unacceptable.

The refs handled it correctly. It's just a very bad rule.

What rule are you speaking of, pretty boy?


The one they correctly called. Lions were not f****d.

The exact same thing happened against Atlanta last week. The rule needs to go, I understand why it's in place but it just cost the Lions their play-off hopes. Maybe, if it happens the challenging team loses a time out, but 15 yards and the review can not favor your team is far past excessive.

That rule that will not be around for another season was correct. But the fact that his arm was down, that was fugged up.

They would have won it any way if they hadn't gone conservative in their last possession in overtime and got a little closer for Hanson. Instead, they made him kick a pretty long kick.

Kinda felt bad for them until then.

They handled the "challenge" rule correctly, yes. And I agree its a horrible rule.

But the refs totally blew calling the running back, whose elbow AND knee were on the ground, down and just letting the play continue.

The replacement refs were better. That was an absolutely horrible call. I saw that he was clearly down in real time the first time it happened.

I feel for the Lions and all, but if Jason Hanson hits a FG he should hit indoors in OT it's a moot point. I mean for christ sakes how many chances did they have to win that damn game? Bad teams find a way to lose (see, Panthers 2012) and good teams continually find a way to not let "bum calls" be an excuse.

There's a reason poo like this happens continually to the Panthers, the Lions, the Browns....
