    Admittedly I laughed when I heard Jalen Ramsay banged in sick like a commoner.

    No idea why the Browns didn’t challenge the obvious PI late in the game. At first they tried to brush it off as “no big deal. 2nd and 9 versus 3rd and 9” and then even Collinsworth sort of caught on that “Hey, an extra down with this craptastic offense might be a good thing with very little risk…”.

    Between that and Tampa purposely taking a penalty to move their own kicker back 5 yards and miss the winning kick its just sad what/who gets put in place as coaches of these teams because they’re nice guys and the media loves them.

    Love Kangol saying he took the penalty on purpose to give his kicker an advantage, like a goalie giving up fat rebounds!

    And, of course, it was the kind of miss that had a good chance of being good from five yards closer!

    I picture Coughlin sneaking around Ramsey’s house now like Mr Rooney* in “Ferris Bueller.”

    lets not forget about Cincinnati’s Zac Taylor arguing that after the player gave himself up he ran into the end zone wanting a saftey.

     

    good thing these coaches know the rules.

    That was crazy.  It was like he had never seen 4th quarter football.

    In thinking back I honestly believe that Kitchen didn’t realize the difference of not challenging that PI versus challenging it. Since it would have been offsetting penalties he probably didn’t realize that it would matter and the down would be done over. It was 2nd and 9, they got called for an illegal shift on a pass play where there was an obvious PI but no flag and the Rams declined the penalty to make it 3rd and 9. If they review it and its offsetting then its 2nd and 9 as the Rams cant decline the penalty as it would have given the Browns a first down.

    At first even the announcers said “Ya, it would be offsetting so why bother as it doesn’t matter” and I’m yelling at the tv “Of course it matters!” and then Collinsworth realizes “Oh ya, it does matter after all” but by then they had run another play. The game moves pretty fast for these new coaches I guess. :lol:

    Kitchens is another one of these first time coaches who thinks it’s all about one side of the ball and “play callin’” and he ignores the actual job of being a head coach. He didn’t run it when he had 3 timeouts either because he wanted to just keep passing. Hey coach your QB isn’t having a great night and he’s been getting hammered and is trying to turn straight forward plays into scramble then get hammered or make a terrible on the run throw plays. Nah, just keep monster throttlin’.

    THIS. The gold standard for head coach in the NFL had to spend 20 years as an assistant coach or coordinator working on all three phases of the game and flame out in Cleveland during a five-year HC run (torpedoed by his own stupid owner) before he got his main chance. (That said, longtime assistants like Kangol and Fangio prove that a long apprenticeship doesn’t automatically lead to success.)  A lot of teams want to market The Next McVay, who got pantsed in last year’s Soupey.  I don’t hear a lot about Pederson or McDermott, but their owners seem to understand (for Pegula belatedly) that you market the team’s success and prospects for contention, not the guy in the headset.

    That said, are the Buffalo Bills “Team X”?  I’ll hang up and listen …

    Develin to IR.  Guessing it’s the season ending IR as Wynn and Harry are the designated to return guys and I think you only can have 2 of those.

    I believe that rule changed a few years ago so that you don’t have to designate players for return. You just put them on IR (after the initial cut to 53) and are able to bring 2 back. So Wynn, Harry, and Develin are all still possibilities.

    9 penalties so far in this terrible MNF game.

    I blame the refs and the league more than the plahyers. It’s really a terrible product. Fire Goodell.

    McDermott has a lot of BB in him in terms of the media.

    Watching today’s presser:  it’s week 4. I don’t know what you want me to say. It’s week 4. 

    :lol:

     

    5 minutes later: like I said, it’s Week 4. :lol:

    I watched 5 minutes of Dancing with the Stars for the first time just now. Don’t know how it always works but this episode had two teams with (I think) the lowest scores from the audience votes. One was Ray Lewis. The judges then needed to vote to eliminate him or the other person. What judge would take his/her life in their hands and vote out Ray Ray?

    Every year they hand out some point of emphasis and my guess is the message to the referees is you better be calling this because we are watching.  This year it was some kind of hold I want to say it is called a ‘lobster block’ or some such.  So the refs flag it and the people bitchbthen the league tells them to stop.  Defensively it seems like you literally can’t touch a receiver anymore.  An inadvertent graze having zero effect on the play is getting illegal contact calls

    I forget which network affiliate it was, but I saw on a crawl on Sunday that the NFL is concerned over the increase in holding calls. The league made holding a point of emphasis heading into the season, so what did they think was going to happen? Holding calls push the offense back and kill drives. That doesn’t help the league’s desire to see more scoring, but how could they not realize this beforehand? As terrible as the ticky-tack illegal contact and PI calls are, at least they lead to first downs and more opportunities for the offense. I’m not a fan of those, either, but at least I could see why the league was doing it.
