Are you ready for football? Kick off in about 5 hours. Go Giants!


1. Maybe little trash talk but keep it respectful.
2. As long as the thread is friendly the Mods will keep it open.

JACK,

I can't wait. Things I'm looking forward to...

Luck & RGIII leading their new teams as rookies.
The Cowboys continuing to choke.
Seeing if Chicago or Detroit can dethrone the Packers in the North.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I hope the replacement Refs do a good job. They killed the momentum of the games in pre-season.

I feel sorry for the replacement refs.

They aren't even the top college refs... they are lower division or in some cases high school refs... with not a lot of experience, and zero NFL experience.

The experienced NFL refs have a tough time in some games and with some rules... these replacements don't really have a fair chance.

They would probably have needed a year just to study and get familiar with all the NFL rules... then maybe the pre-season tuneup would have prepared them for the speed of the game.

I don't know who is being most unfair (NFL refs union OR NFL itself) but this strike needs to get settled for the good of the NFL soon... someone is going to get screwed over by a ref call moreso than usual and it will become a big deal now that the games count!

I thought the same thing... They may not have called a perfect game, but I don't remember seeing anything that I thought "hey, that was a bad/missed call"... so kudos to them under the spotlight and pressure.

I heard on a sports talk show today that was the best reffing crew and they will be doing the Sunday Night Game. I wonder how the rest of the games will go today?

Not even the blatant holding by the defensive back on the goal line resulting in a FG?

They did good, but that was obvious.

Yes it was a miss call but over all they did a decent job. My concern is in the pre seasons games it seemed liked the refs killed the pace of the game. Just by when there was a simply penalty it took them to long to spot the ball or they got the spot wrong and they had to discuss it and re spot it.

The thing about that call... it was a call that was obvious from the camera angle available at home on replay... but for the officials on the field who have different responsibilities and angles... the announcers readily said when that happened that while it was an obvious hold, it was less obvious in the field of play when it happened and is the kind of holding call that officials easily miss.

The point being... I have been watching football for the better part of 25 years now... and if that was the only call they missed, that was a spectacular job... we usually have far more than that to complain about with the regular officials.

Now... the fair point is that was their A-crew of replacement refs... so today might unveil more problems. It should be interesting. By the end of this weekend we will either have proof positive that the "real" refs need to be back ASAP... OR the NFL will have proven they can pick up anyone off the street and dress them to call a game.

I thought the replacement refs did a pretty good job...it's not like the regular refs get everything right either!

Some confusion at the end of the Seahawks-Cardinals gave Seattle an extra timeout, but it wound up having no effect. Also, the Packers had about six 'blocks in the back' on Cobb's punt return TD, but as I said, the regular refs missed calls too.

All in all, it wasn't bad and hopefully will get better!

They'll do fine. Rogers is a fantastic QB, AND a class act.

What I disliked most in that game was a spearing by Williams on Gore in the end zone. Next was the overcalled block in the back on the 70 yd TD play.

The Bears game, Thursday, should be a great one.

We play Detroit next weekend.

I heard a statistic today 7 out 10 teams who win in week one make the playoffs.
