Monday O/T: A good MNF matchup for once.

 132 replies

Arrowhead Guys discuss anything and everything.

When the NFL announced the primetime schedule there must have been weeping and gnashing of teeth in Bristol, Connecticut. With such a terrible lineup the ESPN office printers were surely running at maximum capacity printing out the resumes of employees seeking to escape before the next round of inevitable layoffs came. The Mouse sharpened it’s sickle as it prepared to find an appropriate executive to take the fall.

But the eye of the storm has arrived. For one brief, glorious moment ESPN will broadcast a professional football game that people actually want to see, as the 2-1-1 Lions take on the 4-1 Packers at historic Lambeau Field, this game will go a long way of determining the final pecking order in the NFC North.

In other news Eliud Kipchoge ran a marathon in under 2 hours a couple days ago, which is absolutely ridiculous. To understand how fast that is, go out to your local track and run a lap in 1:09, and do that 105 times, and you’ll fall just short of the 2 hour marathon.

I think I’ll do a Netflix marathon instead.

God I hope Patricia has the stones to let the refs have it in his presser. Thats so bogus. I think we may have hot a new low point. Bring back the scab refs. They werent close to this bad

BleedingRedAndGold

Hands to the face is OK, if you’re a Packer, i guess.

Now if the Chiefs could get a call AT HOME I’d call it home field advantage, but at this point it has the appearance of being flat-out scripted.

BleedingRedAndGold

I don’t think I’d go /quite/ that far, but I won’t say you’re wrong, either. Kelce getting mugged? No prob. Our DBs touch their receivers? Flags galore.

And if I were a HC, I wouldn’t bother with any PI challenges. They are little more than a rubber stamp for anything other than blatant, undeniable PIs – and even then you’re taking a risk.

I did say “has the appearance of…”
I stopped short of declaring it rigged.
The Browns claim they got fucked, we all know KC got fucked, and it was pretty clear the Lions got fucked.
Yes, I know, don’t turn it over and don’t go 3 & out (in KC’s situation), score TD’s and not FG’s in Detroit’s… but goddamn it! It’s hard enough to win when the game is called evenly.
When it appears rigged, why even bother?
Just put Green Bay and New England in the Super Bowl and be done with it.

BleedingRedAndGold

See the Afternight thread for the full reply, but basically you touched on a salient point here. Very relevant.

Don’t care much for booger but he was spot on calling out the refs for those calls.

legal_kush
legal_kush

He absolutely was. His description of receiver technique OTOH was, um, lacking.

BleedingRedAndGold

They should give the sideline woman a try in the booth. Salters? Anyway, might not be better, but can hardly be worse, and more attractive than either of their current duo. Might well be more knowledgeable, too.

BleedingRedAndGold

And at least one of them was utterly bogus. easy to bag on the refs, but the NFL’s continual meddling’s the culprit. The idiots have wrecked their referees.

BleedingRedAndGold

Lions be walking funny tomorrow, the refs didn’t use no lube, not even the decency to spit on their collective ass.

Tyrone

Wasn’t the Packer holding a facemask on the other side f the line too?

legal_kush
legal_kush

Yep.

Wow. Green Bay doesn’t want a TD?
Thank you very much!

theres no guarantee the FG is good

A miss would have been fitting. But no.

id be pissed if my back didnt score there. Bad snaps happen, bad holds happen. if you are ahead 2, yeah, sit down and run clock. when you are behind 2 you get the points when they are available

Wow, I thought we got ref fucked, but the Lions have been double penetrated and spitroasted

Another horrendous call.

I’m beginning to think the refs are trolling all of us. They got tired of being told how bad they suck so they decied to show us what shitty officiating really looks like

That last call seals it. The refs be trolling.

BleedingRedAndGold

Might be them trolling the NFL. If the league can’t make up their minds on what the rules are, they’ll just make it up as they go along, and screw the league.

DPI by Redmond. Probably saved us all time not challenging it, though.

yes and yes

Great catch.
Gotta credit Pakers’ D after all for forcing FG’s instead of TD’s. Does not appear 3.5 points will be enough.

Flipping back and forth with the baseball game. Seeing that score and knowing that “the so called greatest fans in baseball” are cussing their team up and down kind of takes the sting away from yesterday.

i live amongst a shitton of card fans. its not pretty. and i kinda enjoy it

no catch, he never really secured that

Thr receiver has some blame, but that wasnt a great pass. He had to try to come back so hard he lost his cleats

Tyrone

I was always taught to catch with my hands, rather than with my face.

Agreed. If Rodgers places it better it’s a walk-in TD.

Oopsie! Lions got a gift there.

Booger is a complete turd.

Is turd a complete booger?

I was so exasperated with his description of MVS’ catch that’s all I could muster.

Booger is a complete douche??

Offsides.

No idea. It was obvious.
