Somebody in Detroit is working on a JFK/Dealey Plaze diorama right now.

Quote:

Archer: Can you talk about the decision to overturn the call and why you overturned the call.
Morelli: The back judge threw his flag for defensive pass interference. We got other information from a different angle that thought the contact was minimal and didnít warrant pass interference. He thought it was face-guarding.

Archer: Which official?
Morelli: The head linesman.

Archer: What did you see?
Morelli: Itís not my responsibility. Iím a hundred miles away.

Archer: Face-guarding is not a foul?
Morelli: Face-guarding is not a foul. It is a penalty in college but not in professional football.

Archer: What is the process you go through after you announce the call? Should you have waited before you announced the call?
Morelli: Probably, yes. The information came and then the officials got together a little bit later, after it was given to me, the first information. It would probably been smoother if we got together.

Archer: Do you remember this type of (play) happening before?
Morelli: No, not particularly.

Archer: So one more time on who the person was that had the better view?
Morelli: The better view was from the head linesman.

it was a big call most notably because it was called, then flag picked-up...however there isn't obvious evidence of disruptive contact by the defender, especially in real-time motion, and in replay from one angle you can see the receiver got the facemask of the defender. If simply not called then it wouldn't be a huge deal. Detroit still needed to score after the play. Pinning the game on this play is silly for Detroit fans. Dallas, in a tough game against a damn good defense maintained and fought through and stopped Detroit on the final drive.

Wow. What a game that was. I felt absolutely shattered by the end of the that but may have had more to do with the time on a Sunday UK time.

THAT call thehy are banging on about, there was contact both ways, Megatron had a slight pull on the defenders facemask so that is likely to have cancelled out the original call.

Anyway, we got through that when Romo was not at his best. Seemed a little off but that may have had a lot to do with the early pressure from the Lions D. Fair play to them, they came and they had a go and almost had enough. DeMarcus Lawrence gave me kittens at the end but chuffed for the guy that he managed the sack and turnover in the end that sealed the game.

I was never confident with a home game and it almost proved a valid feeling. That is how we have been playing at home this season.

But we are through to face the Packers which is likely to be another battle.

So we travel to Seattle... Tough game but I'd rather be facing them than the Packers I have to admit.

Get yourself to The Pike Pub & Brewery (downtown within the Pike St Market) they do some great beers, I highly recommend their stout.

Seattle have feasted on average teams all season.

Maybe, but Seattle haven't been themselves this year either. I fully expect a Packers @ Seahawks Conference anyway.

The way Cam played, its more of a choice between frying pan and fire.

Blimey.
Watching that last night felt like I was on the end of one of one of Ndamukong Suhs hits.
Was shouting at the TV " I did not stay up this late to watch you lose Dallas"!!!!
So pleased for Lawrence when he made up for his rookie mistake.
Would have preferred to be playing Seattle instead, but they are all quality teams at this stage.

The last month, Seattle have been IMO unstoppable. Defensively they are looking better than last year.

Bears > packers

It was compelling viewing but all the talk is on that one decision by the officials. That first half was littered with calls that could be questions too especially when the kicker went down after what looked like he had been shot. Who'd have thought one of the things that plagues football over here is creeping into NFL. Seen more of it in the past few seasons unfortunately.

A punter, he's not a football player. It was an easy call to make whether he made the most of it or not, can't dive in and not allow the kicker to land back on his kicking foot.

The centennial of the rule being introduced, as it goes.

This is true ... made him look a bit of a tool in the slow motion replay.

It was foolish of the Cowboys player but it wasn't called when the Lions player did it to our punter. The officials had an off night but that simply made it all the more compelling I think if I'm honest.

Regardless, it must have been quite a game for the neutral. And that is another team we have beaten with a winning record. Not bad for a 'poor' side eh? ;)

oz_da II 05-01-2015 11:58 AM

Haven't seen the Cowboy punter's incident yet as I was away for a few minutes, sounded like a little bit of "anything you can do I can do better" between the punters. ;)

Marvin Lewis is 0-6 in the playoffs. Four of those games he was shut out in the 2nd half. The Bungles have been outscored 70-13 in the 2nd half of those six games.
Time to go, Marv.

Alex Smith (lost)
Drew Stanton
Colin Kaepernick
Mark Sanchez
Colin Kaepernick
Ryan Lindley
Shaun Hill

That's the reason why they are looking better than last year.
