fRom USATODAY's FTW column talking about how bad the Packers are right now...

 

With the exception of Carolina, there aren’t any good teams in the conference. It’s a handful of decent teams and a slew of mediocre ones. Given that the Panthers are hardly a sure thing in any home playoff matchup (the team is zero for its last two in hosting a divisional playoff game)...

 

Hey, we're the only good team in the conference!!!!!!!

So that pick the Packers threw near the end zone at the end of the game that had Cobb open was an illegal pick...right. I watched it on video several times and it looked illegsl, the only source I've heard mention that when talking about that play  was on an NFL network show. So what do you guys say, illegal?

Question

What makes vegas more money? The underdog? Or favored?

In an ideal situation, the same. The line is initially established based on who is actually favored to win. After that it is adjusted as bets come in, in order to get equal bets on each side. So, if too many bets come in for one team, they adjust the point spread up to draw more betters to the underdog, and vice versa. That way, once there is equal money on each side, one side pays the other, and Vegas keeps their 10(ish)%.

In all honesty I was more scared at the Indy game then this one. We couldve scored 47 points in this game if Graham made his fg and Cam didnt overthrow Greg. I thought our offense was clicking. You sort of have to expect good QBs to make a comeback but I think we get gassed in the 4th and dont push as hard and play more bend but dont break instead of looking to break.

Yes, it was a blatantly illegal pick.  It's the same thing Richie Brockel got flagged for some weeks back that cost Greg Olsen a touchdown.

There's some gray area in the rules about that kind of thing honestly.  The Saints have built a good portion of their offense on that kind of play.

I didn't see a flag thrown though.  Whether one would have been thrown had TD not intercepted?  Unknown.

    • Horn should have had 2 interception but other than that his name has been silent. I mean this in a good way.  They just don't throw his way too often.  Talking about a stat-less ROY.   He just shuts receivers down. I'm joking about ROY but am serious he would never been considered because he's stat-less.
    • Ah yes. Thanks for reminding me to put you on ignore. I could have sworn I did that already. 
    • I posted this the other night and pretty much nailed it. 1. The Saints are on an 16-0 run against the NFCS and surely want to make it 17-0.  The Panthers have to come out on fire.   If we force a 3 and out on their first series, it's game on for us.  If they walk down the field and score a TD we might be in trouble.  We have to come out with an attitude that we aren't the Panthers of old.  CHECK (actually it was 10 in a row not 16) 2. Stop the run.  We have to make this a one dimensional game.  Plain and simple. Stop the run and we'll force Winston into mistakes.  If we don't stop the run it's inevitable that we give up a couple of big plays downfield. CHECK 3. This will be a true test for our young DBs.  If they can make some plays, which I believe they will, we'll win.  Jackson and Horn are legit cover corners and will make it tough for Winston.  Our nickel will have to be on point or they kill us underneath.  CHECK 4. Our defensive line is going against a pretty solid O-line but IMO we have an underrated defensive line.  We are solid interior and out the edge.  We have to get pressure on Winston.  I think we'll get 2 or 3 sacks and plenty of pressures.  We have to stop the run. It's the key to winning this game. CHECK 5. Offensively we can't start out slow.  We can't go two quarter (nearly 3) without points like we did last week. Darnold showed some grit last week when the Jets got it to a one score game and drove us down for a FG to put us back up by 2 scores.  Turned out to be the game winning drive. CHECK MINUS THE 3RD QTR. 6. Snow and Brady need to be ready to adjust to what the Saints do after half time.  Last week both offensively and defensively we played like a different team in the 2nd half.  Neither Snow or Brady had an answer for the adjustments the Jets made.  The sign of a good OC and DC is the ability to adjust on the fly after half time.  MISSED THIS ONE OFFENSIVELY.  If we are going to be special Brady has to have a better understanding of what teams are doing after half time.  The 3rd quarter we put up 51 yds of offense after posting over 225 in the first half.  It wasn't until the 4th quarter before we go things rolling again and only after a turnover.   It's seems like a lot of things that have to go in our favor to win.  I believe as long as we don't shoot ourselves in the foot with dropped passes and stupid penalties we will win this game. CHECK
