    Pre-Game Thread- Bills @ Pats (Thursday Night)

    10-7 will get us in. Every team has a tough schedule, nobody's sailing through.

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Vikings beat the Pats

    This note is poorly written but says that if the ground causes the player to lose control of the ball (in this case Henry hitting the ground and the ball moving in his arms), then it's incomplete "if the ball hits the ground before he regains control" ... Well, it didn't hit the ground before he...

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Vikings beat the Pats

    Correct. Plus if you dig into this, even if a) "survive the ground" were still the rule, and b) it did touch the ground, it still survived it cause the ball was under full control at the moment it touched the ground, and it never touched the ground again. So at each moment of the catch, it was...

    Ball never touched the ground

    You can't really tell for 100% sure if the ball ever touched the ground. It's very close and may have, but it's very possible it didn't, and the overturn required conclusive proof. So there's that in our favor, it should not have been overturned on that basis alone. Even if it did touch the...

    Ball never touched the ground

    Generally this advice makes sense esp if it's just 1 or 2 calls, but in this case the reversal cost us 4 points and the blatant missed hold on the TD return cost us another 7, so that's 11 points without any debate. Just incompetent officiating, 11 points, L instead of W. Then the missed Mac...

    Ball never touched the ground

    The unforgivable part is that everyone could see his hand underneath the ball, so therefore it was impossible to confirm that the ball hit the ground, and therefore impossible to overturn the initial TD call. It’s nice to see this pic confirming the catch, but the onus was on replay to confirm...

    OK. It was a penalty, leading to a Vikings TD. Add it to the other list of completely boneheaded plays like Henry & Mac costing us 2 time outs and 4 points at the end of the 1st half. There's another 10 points in addition to the 10 points that the refs cost us.

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Vikings beat the Pats

    Rarely do you see a game so tilted 1 way by the officials: Henry's catch was called a TD, and there was no indisputable evidence overturn it. His hand was under the ball, the hand hit the ground, and as he brought the hand & ball to his body the ball moved slightly while away from the ground...

    Good News Potentially On Andrews?

    These guys need a lot more padding. They've streamlined the unis over the years for speed, and now they don't have enough protection. Nobody has knee pads or thigh pads like the old days.

    2022 OL

    There was 1 sack, maybe 2, where it appeared Mac should've been able to step up in the pocket. Zappe is very good at that.

    2022 OL

    Will be interesting to see who starts at LT this week. Wynn played his first snaps at LT before twisting his ankle, with Trent benched for who knows what. Maybe it's time to rip off the band-aid and swap Wynn to LT and Brown to RT.

    Good News Potentially On Andrews?

    It wasn't clear on replay but I think he got kneed on the side of his thigh, the guy who hit him was running and Andrews got spun into him

    Kudos to Mike Palardy

    In the man's first game with us, in a cold and pretty fierce wind, he punted 7 times with a 45.2 avg, no shanks, long of 52, two inside the 20 and 1 more just missed. He looked real solid and reliable.

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Pats beat the Jets

    They consistently moved the ball, in the wind against a top D, with 2 OL knocked out of the game. Had numerous chances to kick several more FG's but kept going backwards when they got in the rz or close to it. That was on BB for not focusing on getting FG's, though he did on their only FG when...

    It should have been 4 FG's today if they'd been satisfied with just making FG's. Instead they had Mac taking deep drops from the 20, taking sacks that put us out of range. Tactical error on Belichick's part in this weather against that opponent with half our OL in the locker room.
