Interesting, so he probably is home then. Whoever 'Jones' is on the Eagles had one of the more pathetic tackling attempts I've seen in a while on Hixon's long TD.

That would be safety Sean Jones, who's been interminably frustrating all year. Will look amazing at times, and then does that.

that ump had absolutely no clue if that was a TD. he was like "uhhhhhhh, sure this will make the game more interesting. TD!"

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

Trent Cole will be writing a very large check to the NFL for that one.

Since multiple precedents have been set by Flozell Adams, the NFL can't suspend Cole for a first offense like that.

He threw 2 punches, he could easily be suspended (and should be). He was also ejected from the game (Flozell had not been)... not sure what precedent you are referring to.

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

I gotta go back for a second to the 13-0 Colts and Saints. I find it amazing that both of these teams have a chance to go 16-0, and yet both have been so (relativly) underwhelming. Seems like they're squeaking by, getting miracles left and right (Belichick and Suisham come to mind), getting scares from mediocre teams constantly, yet ... still 13-0.

Agreed. Both teams are imminently beatable.

Each are in unenviable positions. It's the old argument. Do they go all out and try to get through the regular season undefeated? Or do they rest some players, once home field through-out is secured, and perhaps lose a game... blah blah blah?

Going into the playoffs undefeated is a crap shoot at best.

The Saints defense does not look too impressive in my eyes, and Indy can seize up offensively on occasion.

It would be epic to see two undefeated teams playing in the Super Bowl though. If for no other reason than to shut up Mercury fucking Morris (and the incredibly overrated 72 Dolphin squad).

These teams can go 16-0 all they want. Doesn't mean they'll pull off victories when it counts.

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

I heard Eagles at Giants game on Westwood One radio (I had to go out to San Francisco International Airport to pick up my stepdad returning from Hong Kong) and gawd, it was a doozy! Probably one of the most entertaining games all year.

By the way, now that NBC's Sunday Night Football is on "flex" scheduling, any idea who will be playing this coming Sunday night?

Next week is Carolina/Minnesota and they've already confirmed that they're keeping that game on the night slot.

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

Been a long long time since I've seen a dominating Redskins performance like that. Granted, knocking Gradkowski out of the game helped a lot since Jamarcus Russell may be the worst QB to ever play in the NFL. Figures I was going against the Skins D, but I guess I should happy that they didn't get that easy fumble recovery TD late.

And once again, thank you oddsmakers for a early x-mas by making Dallas a 3.5 pt favorite. SD +3.5 pays.

The fact that multiple offenses won't get punished severely, so one offense (which occurred in retaliation) won't be either.

Of course, given how the NFL treats everything the Cowboys do with kid gloves, precedent be damned.

Also, Giants fans threw beer bottles at DeSean Jackson after his second TD. Nothing from ESPN on that one. I'd love to see what the major media reaction would've been if, say, it had happened in Philadelphia, and Eagles fans had thrown bottles at Brandon Jacobs. But no, the Eagles fans are awful. Yeah.

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

I'm surprised no one is talking about O'Hara's (I believe) instigation. He clearly put his hand to the facemask of Cole before Cole punched him (twice). Not sure what he was trying to do, but you put your hands at someone's face you better expect to get some sort of retaliation.

I'm still not sure why you get ejected for being the dumbass that punches someone in the helmet. It's not like you're kneeing someone. A good closed hand fist to that helmet has to hurt you pretty bad no matter how strong your hands are.

I'm sure O'Hara hardly felt it.

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

Jackson takes the lead in a very close game and shows up everyone by walking backwards into the endzone for 10 yards. Almost as bad as S. Brown jogging into the endzone after his fumble recovery. If Irvin/Owens/Burress/Barber/Portis/Moss did that in Philly they would have gotten the same reaction.

Re: 2009 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 14

Anyways, if you want a better precedent, Tommie Harris (who also has a history) threw a punch at a Cardinals player a few weeks back. He was ejected, and he was fined, but he wasn't suspended.

That's not my point. My point is that if that had happened in Philadelphia, every major sports media outlet would be highlighting an article on how horrible Eagles fans are, and bringing up the "history" like the Santa booing, etc. When it happens in NY, there's no mention of it at all.

I remember the media making a big deal about that game in the Meadowlands in the 90s when fans were throwing iceballs (very dangerous) all over the place.

Or the whole "Gate D" thing which made the Jets and their fans look like complete morons. That was all over the local and national media for weeks.

Had to Google for that one - never heard about it until now. Guess not everything that happens in NYC makes it to "fly-over" country.
