That'd be like a week long trip for you, the Packers games are good but not that good.

... Green Bay looks so great. Aaron Rogers is one for the decade

In 2005 the 49ers were supposed to select the local kid Rodgers (Cal Berkeley) with the Number 1 pick overall, but somehow ended up choosing Alex Smith (Utah) instead.  He then slid to #24, where Green Bay grabbed him. 

There is another QB now at Berkeley, expected to go very early in next years draft, Jared Goff is setting all kinds of school passing records.  If Kaepernick has a horrible year and SF has a lousy season...

...SF will sign Tim Tebow and not draft a quarterback at all.

Sorry, I've been a Falcons fan for too long.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had some great things to say about Brandon Weeden  Tuesday morning:
Quote from: Jerry Jones on 105.3 FM
"This quarterback Weeden can drive the ball down field,
Hes a thing of beauty on throwing a football. His passing motion and his arm, frankly, you wont see a more gifted passer, power, accuracy, the entire aspect of it. If he can basically prepare, be the starting quarterback, come in and execute and keep his head right, then I feel good about Weeden.

He sounds very confident about Weeden's abilities, right?
Well.....Tuesday afternoon Dallas has acquired QB Matt Cassel from the Bills.

Maybe Jones took a look at Weeden's stat sheet and realized he will most likely implode under the pressure of QB1.

Granted I havn't been to a game in Lambeau but unless it is the super bowl even free tickets and lodging couldn't make me want to go to a game as opposed to watching from the comfort of home.

Lions have been disappointing. Joe Lombardi has no clue how to utilize his weapons and keeps trying to use Stafford like Brees which will never work. Defense has been awful as well.

Cassel is... okay.

The Bills are spinning the Cassel trade as a "great vote of confidence in EJ Manuel." Huh?

Don't get me wrong, we all want the guy to succeed, but his greatest successes have come against third-stringers in the preseason. Hopefully he puts it together, but MORE hopefully Tyrod doesn't get hurt...

IMHO Super Bowl games suck big time. Been to the two when Farve was playing. New Orleans was bad, so went to San Diego thinking it couldn't be worse. It was a beyond the pale terrible experience.

A Packer game is a fun day.

I have enough trouble understanding what a Tight End is and you expect me to follow the Bella Haven thread. :P

I don't even have enough time to follow Falkie anymore.  ;)

Just to see if I can get on a streak I am taking Packers -3 over seattle
Am now going for 4 in a row. my pick is Vikings -2.5. Peterson and company have owned the Chargers and until Gates gets back I don't like Chargers to have any red zone offence.

Lol. The Jags played great last week. Can't tell if they are marginally better this year or if Miami is just terrible.
You should get a boost when TE J. Thomas is back on the field in the next few weeks.

Letting it ride?
As long as AP can get in 'game shape' again and manage to hold on to the ball.

I made a wager with my buddy that AP gets over 160 all purpose yards.

I don't know why I can't post in the podcast chat, but I can't, so I'll post this here.

In regards to your comments about the referees calling 'too many' penalties and interrupting the flow of the game - it's up to the players and coaches to be disciplined and to play within the rules.  If there are too many penalties being called, blame them

The idea of the refs not calling 'too many' penalties is similar to the earlier issues of a defense being able to punch or pound the ball out of the carrier's arms, and to be able to have their hands all over the receiver on the way down the field without being called for PI. 

The game is emotional and physical enough without allowing it to become thuggy and more dangerous to the players than it needs to be.  I'd much prefer to see outcomes decided by talent and skill, not by goonery and who can get away with the most. 


The reason there are so many cheap shots and so much fighting in the NHL is because the refs ignore all but the worst of it, or those infractions that directly interfere with an attempt on goal.  The League values Continuous Play over all else.  That may not be a bad thing, but the players know they have to protect themselves and their teammates, and need to take care of things themselves - to the point teams need 'enforcers' and designated 'Checking' Lines.  This works for the NHL, but I don't think it would be all that great for the NFL.

all I'm saying is it sucks to watch a game when there's a penalty on every other play. Whether the refs are flag happy.  Calling that game particularly tight for fear of 2  heated rival teams getting out of control (Dallas at Eagles)  or the players were playing undisciplined and sloppy.
Whom ever is at fault, it still sucks as a fan. perhaps I attributed 100% of the problem to the refs, which obviously isn't the case.
Do you disagree that the referee crews will call a game differenly depending on the time of year? Regular season week 2 vs Conference Championship game or the Super Bowl.
the refs are highly trained but it still comes down to a judgement call at the discretion of that particular referee/crew at full game speed.
Ref #1 might keep the flag in his pocket for borderline offensive holding, while referee #2 will throw the flag.

Some get it wrong, some get it right. I'll still complain. It's what fans do right? Lol ;)

Personal fouls, roughing  & hitting a defenseless player are player safety issues and will have to be a topic for another day, after I get some sleep.

I agree it sucks to see flags every play.  And sure they call things I wouldn't sometimes.  From replays and general observation it looks like they miss even more that should have been called. 

And yeah, they can be inconsistent and all the rest.  I'm not so sure they shouldn't let more go earlier in the year, when the players (and refs) are still getting the rust off, and maybe the games aren't as crucial.  I think they probably should call them a bit tighter earlier in the game in order to establish their authority and signal they won't tolerate a bunch of crap, then loosen up later in the game.  It's an art, not a science.

Do you know if the NFL ever got around to hiring full time professional refs, or is it still older part timers not quite equipped to keep up with the speed of the game?  Announcers used to talk about that all the time, but I don't think I've heard much about it for awhile


I would say the football refs try to be better, to get the calls right, and do it with less ego than do baseball, basketball, and hockey officials.  In basketball too often the calls are - intentionally - made or not made depending on who you are and what team you're on.  Baseball umpires are out of position much too often, and each has their own strike zone - which is often wildly inconsistent from pitch to pitch, game to game, and neither they nor the League offices even give a shit.  And no one had better even question it.  Hockey refereeing was described above.  I'll take the FB refs over the rest of them anytime
