    CBS now. It looks very good. Lots of intimate sideline footage and that kind of thing. NFL-network like production quality in game coverage.

    I'm glad they pointed out that horrible officiating on the holding call. Even NFLs head of officiating said he thought the call sucked (though he didn't say it in those words, he said, he thought there was holding on that play, but it wasn't as clear with number 32).

    I bet behind the scenes, the ref who made that call was torn a new one.

    THey don't make any money being refs really. Less than 50k. How many of them have shaved points?

    I thought they said the official who lost a game check a few weeks ago lost 8K. that works out to 128K a year plus whatever they make for preseason and postseason. And he wasn't even the head offical.

    So they do seem to make good money. And they all have other jobs. So most likely only greed, not financial pressure, would make a ref pull a Donaghy

    Says who? I believe they make $8,000 a game or more. That's over $120,000 a year for a part-time job.

    Holy crap that was pretty amazing. I've never seen Belichick like that. He was furious and screaming at the defense. I've heard that Belichick can go ape **** but I've never actually seen him do it.

    Wow there are some great quotes and moments on ESPN of the Pats-Jags game.

    BB "Everyone just do your job... for once"

    (Hey it worked!)

    Announcer, "And Tom Brady just... won't... quit!"

    (Gave me chills.)

    We talked about this all week. Everybody, do your job! OK? You stay on your man in man-to-man coverage.... You do your job! That's what's the problem right here. All right? Take care of your responsibility and just do it right... for once! -- Bill Belichick, 1-12-08

    Belichick would be shouted down on this board, probably, for calling out our defense.

    "Facing all comers is a champion's duty, whipping them, is a champions pleasure." :rocker:

    "Teams don't stop the Patriots, they just try to keep up. Noone has so far."

    Oh that was a beautiful piece of work! Wow.

    "Work still remains. Before the Patriots can claim perfection, they must claim the AFC."

    Now I'm really pumped for the game!!

    No, they looked like crap in that game until they started getting their act together. The fact is that they can't start this game today like they did last week. SD can burn us much more than Jax if our defense doesn't get its head out of its ass from the beginning.

    If I was a ref the Colts fans would be pissed that all the calls go the Patriots way. And they'd be right. :D

    I've heard the "do you job!" screamed in anger from BB but, that was the first time I heard him end it with "for once". Ouch.

    No, because Belichick actually knows what he's talking about...unlike a bunch of message board idiots.

    Anyone watching NFL Championship Chase on CBS?

    My favorite moments so far:

    The assistant cutting the sleeves off BB's shirt. For those who didn't see it: they were standing on the practice field. BB was *wearing* the shirt. (I have a new theory: BB doesn't have a thermometer or internet access so he just comes to practice wearing every article of clothing he can find and just has an assistant cut things off until he feels comfortable.)

    Our narrator: Tom Selleck. Ancient CBS Exec: "Who can we get who will add that extra level of excitement and authority that the AFC Championship game deserves? Why, Magnum P.I., of course!"

    So saying the sun is hot is only true if Belichick says it?

    No, but the likelihood of what people are crying about on this board, and what is actually wrong with the defense matching is likely to be a 1,000,000,000 : 1 shot.

    Nope , you know that is his silent protest against the NFL's absurd rule that you have to wear 100% Reebok gear on the sidelines.

    Like I said it looked like an America's Game production. I'm sure it will be used for the DVD that will come out after the season is over.

    Disable Jersey

    In what language does "do your job" mean the exact same thing as "this defense sucks! They're too old!"?
