Just saying but I think that one can still be the "Brady" Rule. It happened to Carson Palmer in a playoff game in 2005. No rule change. Happens to Brady in 2008 and he misses the whole season? Immediate rule change.

I guarantee that, at least once next year, we get a series of at least 3 red zone plays that all get reviewed.

Goal line dive doesn't make it, reviewed, confirmed.

Player bobbles the ball catching it near the side of the end zone, reviewed, confirmed.

Guy finally just barely punches it in, reviewed, confirmed.

And of course, commercials between them all!!

Well, in fairness, there was some questioning that kind of play with the Palmer thing. I think that was actually a worse example of the two hits, even. There's no question whatsoever star power played into it, but that's just the way it is sometimes. It's bad for the NFL to have guys coming off record seasons to go down for an entire season. That kind of play has always been fairly borderline(I tend to side with the defense on that issue though, Pollard couldn't have really done anything else to tackle Brady) anyway.


....besides, how many times have you seen that called? I think I can count on my hands the amount of times I have. The liberal interpretation of roughing the passer is a much bigger issue.

Pretty much like nobody cared about Roy Williams horsecollaring the **** out of people until he did it to TO right in the middle of McChoker's only realistic window of winning a Superbowl.

Way off topic, but I thought it was horseshit that the NFL even let TO play for Philly after his agent ****** up and missed the deadline filing for FA. Shoulda made his ass play in SF/BAL for that season.

Also, how many times did the Rodney Harrison and Donovan Darius types nearly kill people? I think Harrison was suspended for one game through it all. Darius damn near decapitated Robert Ferguson and got a fine.

NOW though, that the league is being sued for concussion and all that, YOU DARE NOT touch a making a catch. God help you if you do.

The NFL is entirely reactionary. They'll put up with something indefinitely until it happens it winds up reaching a level where it could cost them money. (Star player missing time, law suits...)

I don't need anything else in any sports package. Plus, my cable is included in my rent.

Oh I do. I need MLB Network, NHL Net, Fox Soccer, Big 10 Net, etc. For 10.99 a month it's worth it to me.

Thursday night games every week is ******* awesome unless you work nights. As fans, we'll see more teams so many people can comment with some accuracy rather than basing everything off of stats and the same three highlights from each game.

Hey, don't lump me in there. I go to great lengths to see as wide of variety of teams as I can. I even sat through some Jimmy Clausen Panthers games 2 years ago because I wanted to see the worst QB ever.

Then Blaine Gabbert happened 3 times in prime time...

I'm a fan of this as well. Probably because I have NFL Network though. I can see how it sucks for people that don't have it.

It basically just depends on what region you live in and who the major cable provider in the area is. Some places, everyone has it, others, no one has it.
