    One thing that I think some people are beginning to realize is that the incompetence on the part of the refs has morphed the game back ten or so years.

    Look at NFL's marquee teams:

    NE: 1-2, GB: 1-2, NO: 0-3

    That the high flying precision offenses are suffering are no surprise! These offenses are built on a precise passing game that assumes a modern breed of DB that has quickly morphed quickly changed into the defensive backs of the late 90s, early 2000s.

    All the holding, PI, and illegal contact that's going uncalled right now is hurting teams with elite QBs. Physical dominating defenses that wouldnt have had a chance otherwise are doing great, with the Cardinals, Seahawks, and the more traditional defenses (aside from Pitt, it seems) doing very well.

    VERY interested to see how NE, GB, and NO's fortunes will change once the normal refs are back. In the meantime, I think it's key BB prepares his team for some old school football if NE wants to compete. (I don't think the Ravens game was too indicative of this, as many other factors were at play in that game.)

    Sorry, but I call BS on this theory.


    The calls that went against us last night were against our defense, not our offense.


    Mayo, Spikes, and McCourty all had phantom holding calls.

    You missed my edit just in time at the end.

    Would also like to add it's not just the specific non calls that are impacting the game - the general tone of the game has gotten rougher and more physical all across the board, further hurting these types of offenses.

    It's a great time to be a big, strong D right now. Let's hope the Pats capitalize with their front 7.

    No Jersey Selected

    Just one odd times thing:
    - NFL.com research came u with the fact that Brady, Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees all lost on the same weekend for the first time week. Guess you can add Rodgers now too.
    - And Brees is 25th in passer rating. Right behind Mark Sanchez.

    What are you watching??? The officials are calling MORE not less in the secondary.
