The protect the rich QB at the sacrafice of other players rules have ruined the NFL IMHO.

How much longer till it becomes flag football?

#1615 6 years ago
Quoted from Pinchroma:

Uhh flank.. Check the news on your teams QB which may hurt him in the coming weeks.

Hopefully Rodgers does the right thing. It could do good things for WI acceptance for others.

#1617 6 years ago

A large portion of WI (ouside of bigger cities) I have found to not be very accepting of homosexuality. IME at least.

I think Rodgers is hard not to like (even as a Bears fan) as he tends to be a pretty stand up guy. The media might eat it up, but more importantly it may challenge the beliefs of some very iggnorant people on what a 'Gay guy' looks liek to them and what is acceptable if their hero comes out.

#1631 6 years ago

My experience, as in I have quite a few friends that are further on the homo side of the spectrum and have been with them both inside of Madison/MKE and in more rural areas. In general, my experiences have been not as favorable towards the gays the further you get fromt the bigger cities.

Either way, Rodgers is a good QB (not as good as Cutler was yesterday) and if he does like the penis then at the top of his career would be the best time to just be public with it.

#1638 6 years ago

I like this one better

#1642 6 years ago

I am not sure but I am guessing Cutlers QB rating was much better than Rodgers yesterday?

I like the kitten one the best!

#1645 6 years ago

It would increase my admiration for the guy if he is actually gay and comes out. It could do great things for others if he used his position of NFL posterboy to help bring some fairness/acceptance to others that have been hurt due their sexual orientation.

I don't think anyone should be outed against their will, but that seems to be the nature of our society and famous people.

#1671 6 years ago

That is OK, they dont want to watch them gets crushed so it works out perfectly. Don't sell enough tickets for the game = blackout and you don't have to see it on TV

#1697 6 years ago

At least no troubles selling out tickets...

#1914 6 years ago

When you are making a play on the ball it is. Refs seem to let that crap go. Packers should just run every down.

looking forward to this superbowl

#2386 6 years ago

I remember that NBA fight. It was CRAZY!

#2433 6 years ago

I like the idea of changing up the PAT somehow to make it more dramatic. That said, I don't want to take away the option for a 2pt conversion and catching another team off gaurd.

Risk/reward is important for NFL to be fun and lately it seems like lots of rules to remove risk.

NFL requires most performances to be pre-recorded and then mimed. They do not want a technical difficulty with sound to ruin or delay the show. Flea actually posted a nice message about what/why the RHCP were thinking and why they agreed to do it that way. The choice was basically pre-record a live performance and mime or dont play the superbowl... What would you do?

Anyone want to bet against the packers? I got a LIONMAN shirt that says they win . What do you got ? no money ,of course .

I got a 6 pack of beer (or some other tasty treat of my choosing; good not bad) to put up against this bet for this Sunday.

What do you say?

BEAR DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!

#2947 6 years ago

sweet. It will make the game more fun.

i think a few guys are going to pooleys around 11am on Sunday for pinball, beer, and the game if anyone feels like stopping by.

#2961 6 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Packers had a good game today . No LIONMAN shirts lost this week . Vikings next ,any takers ?

I will bring your 6er to the PBL open house. cool?

#2963 6 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Perfect ! Thank you . If you want in on the next Bears vs Packers game let me know .

We will see how things stand before that game, but I definitely want some action to try and get that sweet shirt!

#2967 6 years ago

Packers offense was playing against a PeeWee defense. I don't think they even put pressure on Rodgers once? I am not very impressed with either team at this point and think Lions are the only team in the division with even a chance of putting together a decent run at playoffs.

Sad to see Cutler being a head case again when he looked vastly improved the first few games. When he gets in his head it all goes downhill quick for the Bears. I had hope that Trestman had finally spanked it out of him.

#2970 6 years ago

From the first few games it sure looked like Arodge was following the Cutty playbook of "gets blitzed and freak out to try and force stupid crap" Either way, I think both teams are 1-2 games away form declaring this a rebuilding year.

#2981 6 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Nope, Arodge never forces anything, he takes the sack and doesnt risk it, you should try watching football.

take the sac or throwing the pick... the point I was making is he does not seem to be the elite QB that he was the past few years.

Teams that make him scramble have dominate him. Teams that have not, have failed.
I have watched all 4 pack games so far and he does not seem to be the guy he used to be.

I like him and hope things start to click more for him. I don't pay enough attention to know what the real issue is (o line, not enough weapons?) but his body mechanics seem stilted and he jsut does not seem to have the swagger he used to.

#2983 6 years ago

unfortunately for arodg another sac could mean a big injury? What was it last year, sholder or collerbone? year before was a concusion?

He is not as young as he used to be and should be learning to avoid the hits.

Maybe Raji missing is his issue?

#2993 6 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

FYI-Raji plays defense

Isn't he the one that was supposedly the packers mojo. Did the whole play on "teach me how to bucky" into "teach me how to raji" thing?

i thought everyone claimed him to be the lucky charm? and now he is hurt/out?

I overheard that the Bears won a game this past weekend?

I will never understand for something that is supposed to be a business why a team with no hope of making playoffs would do anything besides lose every game for the remainder of the season. I guess butts in seats and consession sales for this year are more important than better draft picks for future year?

#3202 6 years ago

#3395 5 years ago
Quoted from davewtf:

That would be the highest rated regular season game of all time if he came back. I'd sign him.

Would love to see him in Chicago

#3448 5 years ago

Lockette was the real stud on that play! WOW is he quick!

#3469 5 years ago

I think you are giving him too much credit. Unlikey that big dummy even knew where he was. He is dirty, but did not look to me like he was aware of the fact that he was stepping on Rodgers. If he knew he likely would have been a bit heavier with his step.

#3474 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Did you ever play football? You sure as hell know when you are stepping on someones leg.

Yeah, he knew he was stepping on SOMEONE, but it was in his normal motion of backpedal. It was not like he was actually aware enough to say to himself "hey I am gonna step on Rodgers calf and try to hurt him more"

He is just a dirty player in general but unlikely he knew who he was stepping on. He just isn't going to try to not step on someone. Of course it will likely result in his suspension for next game because the NFL feeds on drama and always sways to the allstar QBs.

#3487 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

I put up with the idiocy you spew on pin side and don't give you crap but keep your nonsense out of this thread.

Your packer fandom is blinding you. If Suh has gotten that good at being dirty then I am impressed. He just isn't going to get off of someone quickly when he steps on them and I don't think he purposefully tried to step on Rodgers.

side note: Weren't you in favor of his WWF move on cutler last year and said that was normal play?

He is a dirty player but not getting off of someone quickly when backpedaling is far from even the top of his scale of dirty.

#3492 5 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

You can't be serious.

100% serious. That was normal football. People get stepped on. It is not like he stompped on Rodgers, like he has done to others.

He is a rough player and often dirty, but that was not a dirty move and if Rodgers had not hammed it up so much then this would not be getting such a big reaction.

The NFL is all about protecting the players they can make storylines for. This is no different than that whimpy "hit to the head of the passer" on Stafford earlier in the game. Basically part of normal play yet they threw a flag.

#3493 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Go watch the vid again, he steps on him once and that foot slips off, he then steps back with his left foot and puts all his weight on it as his right foot leaves the ground.
Now go plan who the bears get to draft after their 5-11 season and wait by the door for your Predator.

Lang was to blame for holding his jersey and then letting go and sending him off balance. Looks to me like he slipped and started to fall off balance and then stepped back. Pretty clear to me.

Could he have tried to not step as hard, sure, but nothing flagrant about it.

Big top heavy guy and his momentum was going backwards.

#3496 5 years ago

Glad to see.

Hopefully cutler gets picked up by someone where he can go shine. His time is done in Chicago and I don't think he will get an offense to protect him if he stays.

#3501 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Lets play the wild card prediction game…..Winner gets to nut punch Whysnow.
Cowboys 52 lions 0
Cardinals 13 Panthers 6
Colts 34 Bengals 28
Steelers 21 Ravens 20

Can we use the glory hole box?

Cowgirls, Cardinals, Bengals, Steelers FTW.

I think the Cowgirls/Lions game will be the most fun to watch.

#3508 5 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Yup normal.....Suh suspended

Yeat another example of what a pantsy sport it has become. Bunch of whiners and highly paid actors that have become false idols.

I could have told you he would be suspended. Nobody is allowed to even fart near the QB, let alone Arodg.

Cowgirls are likely stoked with the suspension.

#3514 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Cool man, Ill stop out your next pin tourney/madison on ball league night with my metal rugby spikes and dig into your ankle when your game is on the line and see how you feel about it…. or you gonna try to pull a mulligan and try to pretend you didn't play that evening?

LOL Flanker. You are cracking me up.

Pinball, full contact sport, could be another olympic event.

#3546 5 years ago

All part of the fun storyline they weave. Speaking of, why is Stern not making a new NFL themed game?

#3597 5 years ago

If that picked up flag for PI is not a crock, I don't know what is.

NFL IS the new WWE.

#3601 5 years ago
Quoted from Astropin:

I have NEVER seen a flag picked up that late. Replay shows CLEAR pass interference. It changed the outcome of this game.

Guessing the picked up flag was so late because it took a while for the guys upstairs to try and decide if they needed to act then or if they would still be able to get the fix in if the boys went down by 10 that late in the game. They decided that if the Lions scored again, then they would have a tough time fixing the game and be even remotely believable, so they opted for the oops we made 1 bad call.

I loved how the commentators already started setting up the excuses "first time reffing together" yada yada.

#3604 5 years ago

Packers will easily blow past the boys.

Storyline already written and NFL wants to see Seattle vs GreenBay game.

#3609 5 years ago

Doug >> I wear a Medium for lion man unless they shrink lots, then a L will work.

Go pack and Go ponies!

#3721 5 years ago

Thanks doug. I think Hawks provide the better story as the NFL wants a SB repeat team in the mix since it has been almost a decade??

I think GB is a lock today but they hav a tough story to compete with since the Boys are 8-0 on the road. Good storyline match up today

#3723 5 years ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

But the pack is 8-0 at home

Win/Win for the NFL as both teams make a good story in this one. I think the pack will pull out the win. As much as I despise them I think they are the better team. This one will likely play out with little ref interference since either team matches up well for story and money influx.

#3777 5 years ago

so much for the refs not getting involved today. Really is a shame what a sham the 'sport' has become. I thought for sure this game would have played out on the merits of the teams, but yet again the entire outcome of the game drawn into question with some silly reffing.

#3780 5 years ago

Flanker, if the shoe was on the other foot I am sure you would be telling a different tale.

That game was a blast to watch for the first 55 min and then the last 5 min was just so very sad. Real fans of the sport should feel robbed when stuff like that happens. Insanely bad call and ruins the integrity of the sport.

By playoffs, the refs are supposed to be firing on all cylinders just like the guys playing the game, yet it seems like more and more shady calls each year.

#3784 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

When the refs upheld the rulebook? Im tired of your shit to be honest.

Refs on the field and everyone else live action saw it as a catch and then making an action of advancing the football.

I thought replays supposedly needed irrefutable evidence to overturn?

Seems to me the refs made a new interpretation of what happened on the field to suit their desired outcome. I honestly think they need to make some changes if they want to salvage the sport and bring it back to what it once was. Were there all these confrontational calls 10 years ago? I never remember so many close and botched calls.

#3788 5 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Seahawks 38 - Panthers 21
Packers 31 - Cowboys 20
Patriots 27 - Ravens 21
Broncos 35 - Colts 21

3 for 3 so far...

Are broncos gonna make me 4 for 4? It is the one I feel the least confident about. I may have over shot score also.

#3793 5 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

Disqualified for Doucheyness.

LOL. Come on Flanker, I was even rooting for the fudgepackers, just wish they could have done it without the assist.

#3807 5 years ago

nothing wrong with packing fudge. Just having a little fun with a common play on packer backers.

Looking like I will not be going 4 for 4 this week.

Cool with me as I really like Luck and the colts. Happy to see manning go down.

#3808 5 years ago

So what do you guys think for next weeks match ups?

Will Packers be able to muster a win in Seattle?

I am thinking we see the pats and hawks in the SB, but I would prefer colts and hawks.

#3840 5 years ago

Seattle 28 Packers 17
Colts 21 Pats 20

I really think the Pats will win but that loud douche is so annoying I am picking the Lucky Colts.

#3864 5 years ago

Manning looked really old but he is still better than the majority in the league. I would want him for 1 more and keep him on to groom someone new for a few years. I don't think he wants to go elsewhere and honestly find it sad when these guys hop around all hobbled up to the last few teams the last year/s of their career.

#3902 5 years ago

Aren't the pats the ones that got caught cheating a few years ago?

#3909 5 years ago
Quoted from Monarca1091:

What's a packer???

I am not sure, but I do know they are smart enough to no try and sell pinball machines for 30% over market value.

#3912 5 years ago

Gave you a thumbs up just because anything is better than a cheating patriot and their loud mouth fans.

#3941 5 years ago

Good luck to the Packers and their fans. I am just hoping for some good football.

Cheers. Off to the bar to play some pinball and share in the fun with some packer fans. I hope for them, that the packers win.

#3984 5 years ago

Sorry Packers.

Fun game to watch from the emotional sideline and glad it was clean and the teams played it out.

I'll be rooting for the hawks in the SB and hope they are playing the colts.

#4012 5 years ago

I already have my lionman shirt and wore it with pride today so I don't have anything to bet. Life is complete now!

#4055 5 years ago
Quoted from Monarca1091:

Yes they cheated one season , and I don't say it was right but do you base their dynasty for that season?

More accurately they finally got caught one season cheating multiple times (and the NFL swept it all under the rug quickly because it was likely much worse than the surface even scratched).

They are not a Dynasty by any means and I would consider everything they have done up to the point of being caught is a giant asterik and a blemish on the NFL forever. What have they done since then?

#4058 5 years ago

WOW, that is your rebuttal? You must agree that getting caught cheating once means they were likely cheating for a while and draw into question all previous years. We finally agree on something! mark this one in the books!

#4065 5 years ago
Quoted from davewtf:

Patriots aren't a dynasty? Right...

toss out the likely cheater years and they are a mid tier team at best.

#4086 5 years ago
Quoted from wcbrandes:

11 of the 12 balls supplied by Patriots found 2lbs under inflated, really?

Put a big ASTERISK on anything that team has ever done. #dynasty*

Caught cheating ~ a decade ago and now caught again tells me they shoudl be ejected from the league and we should be seeing a colts/hawks SB (no way the colts were going to win that game which makes it even sadder that the pats cheated; it is just part of their culture). More than likely the NFL will come up with some sorry story about how the 11 balls were inadvertently deflated and sweep it all under the rug.

Pretty sad to see they are still up to their same old tactics.

From now on when anyone plays a pats fan in pinball I think any non pats fan should get 1 free EB

Funny thing Corey is that I told you when the scheduled was announced for this year, "Well looks like all the production/writing will be going into making sure the Vikings and Packers are fighting for playoff spots up to the last game"

Sure is tracking that way.

Although I would really like to see both Packers and Queens win, I think they are both looking pretty poor right now. Packers have a better chance and it seems like we keep waiting for them to be like they were in previous years. Looks like #12 is in his own head right now.

#5577 4 years ago

Why do you want the packers to win? Is it because you disapprove of the Washington team's racist mascot name? That's the only reason i can see.
Skins over Packers by 30
Hawks over Vikings by 40
Steelers over Bungholes
Chefs over JJ Twats team

I root for in division once my Bears are done. Packers I would like to see win just for a good friend that is a hard core fan and recently got in a bad car accident (deer came through windshield while driving out in Pitt for work). He is gonna make it but had severe brain damage and rehab will be months before he possibly makes it back to 'normal'. He really looks forward to packer games and it helps him stay in good spirits when they win. More post season for the Packers means good things for Paul.

That said, I still like the hawks due to Wilson and I find them entertaining.

#5893 4 years ago

a few homers could be feeling good. If the packers can bring that last 3 quarters into some playoff momentum then they could still be a contender for the SB. They do have all the pieces and a the biggest wild card in my mind. Lots of experience and they do well under pressure.

Quoted from Deaconblooze:

I guess I'd like to see Manning win it all. I'm mostly apathetic at this point, I'm just hoping for some good games.

I agree.

Would be nice to see the old dog win it before he is put out to pasture.

Gonna take some major D to rush Brady and get an early sac or 2 to really give Denver a chance at winning I think...

As much as I would prefer a pony and cardinal SB, I think it wil be the opposite.

#6135 4 years ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Hey, I won a nut punch to Hilton and bequeathed it to Flanker to deliver it..did he ever follow through?

Quoted from jesster64:

brady completes 2 clutch throws on 4th downs. He's just incredible. Plus getting rid of it before a few sacks. He did everything he could. I'm going to say he's the best QB I've ever seen. You can say bradshaw with his super bowl wins is just as good, but bradys team is dismantled every season and he still finds a way to win. Manning didn't show me anything 4th quarter.
Please get rid of sideline reporters, they add absolutely nothing the broadcast guys can't.

How many sacs? How many ints?

Guy is not as good as you think. Right now without a doubt, Peyton is better.

#6202 4 years ago

If anything, Gronk deserves all accolades for keeping them in that game DESPITE Brady and his 2 totally inexcusable INTs.

Better team on all fronts won that game!

#6205 4 years ago
Quoted from jesster64:

kudos to gronk, but not "all" accolades, brady put the ball on the money despite gronk being double covered.

sorry but the dude went 2/15 for 3rd down conversions and 2/4 for 4th down conversions.

He had a few decent passes but more crappy passes and INTs when the game really counted.

Yeah, I see no way that Cam does not just run away with the SB. Would love to see Peyton go out on top and win 1 more to end it all, but aside from the Denver D putting a big hurt on Cam early in the game I dont see it happening.

Hoping for a good match up and not the blow out we got last night.

#6227 4 years ago

bad coaching definately had an impact but to me if you are looking to place blame, the main culprit is the guy that tossed 2 crappy INTs.

I think we are going to see some adjusted play calling in future years in those 4th down situations since PAT is no longer a gimme. Take the 3 points would have changed MANY games this year. Hell, the Bears would have been in the playoffs if they had just taken the 3 point FG in a couple of games (granted that woudl mean that they actually needed to make the FG ) rather than trying to bank it all on a TD and 2pt conversion.

#6229 4 years ago

wasn't this the first year that they changed the distance for the PAT?

#6436 4 years ago

Any blame on Arodgers for the poor performance this year?

From the sidelines looking in, he sure seemed to be a big part of the failure. Seemed like he had gotten inside his head and looked very Cutleresque in decision making/frustration for some games. Despite my dislike for all things Packers, I always through Arodgers was solid up till this year.

Was that all coaching and he deserves no blame?

#6439 4 years ago
Quoted from davewtf:

poor? no, just not ridiculously awesome.
completion % 60.7
yards 3,821
td 31
int 8
passer rating 92.7

It seemed like he had lots of indecision this year and lack of focus which does not really have a metric. He was poor for him/ historically and all I remember is them being 6-0 and then falling hard and he was unable to keep the focus himself. This then seemed to be manifested with fights on the sidelines and I assume issues behind the scenes. First time he seemed to not have the respect and confidence of the team. He did not look like the Arodgers of previous years.

17th in the league last year (23rd the year before) and hopefully even better this year. As a Chicago fan, I am happy with his trajectory over the past few years. Hopefully his head game continues to improve.

Bears will get 10 wins and make the playoffs.

Quoted from str8cash:

Playoffs are not going to happen. Vikings and Packers are both better and probably playoff teams.

only time will tell. Cutler has been a steady improvement on his head game and he has the physical ability. Just a matter of things all linking up.

#6780 4 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Ha...yup this could be the year finally! C'mon guys I know we've been saying this for 10 season with him but he's finally going to do it!!!
Cutler's a fucking joke.

only choice I have is to be optimistic. He has steadily improved in the head case department. Last years QB coach is now the O coach so that is good. Bears made some decent moves in off season and hopefully Kevin White comes back strong.

I am looking forward to fall football season!

#6783 4 years ago
Quoted from Deaconblooze:

Their offensive success should be attributed to Adam Gase. His loss is probably going to hurt.

Cutler made refernce to being happy to have the continueed relationship with both Fox and his QB coach. It seems they are the ones responsible for getting his head screwed on better. To may that is the real lynchpin to the whole bears. If Cutler can more consistently make good decisions then they have plenty of talent on board. That si a big IF, but I liek the trajectory and how his play style is progressing as he gets older.

Quoted from RWH:

The shit-calls have been going on since the start of the season. I know there have been, and will always be miss-calls as most are made in a bang, bang situation but damn this season has been the worst! I'm serious when I say there have been games I've been watching where I wondered what game the ref's were watching with all the missed or plain wrong calls being made. NFL has to get the replay crap cleared up as well.......many replay calls are as bad as the original!

if it is not obvious, the NFL is just man soap opera with scripted seasons now-a-days. The bad calls are not bad calls, but just business decisions on what teams need to win in order to boost market and sell swag.

Sure these are atheletes, but the influence of the fluid script is obvious. Sometimes the calls need to be worse because they have a tight game and need to ensure an outcome. Ocassionally teams even win despite the refs trying to force it the other way.

The ratings are down because the reality tv script writing has gotten aweful. They need some new writers.

But, in the bowls they have met other legacy or prior dynasty franchises, they just couldn't pull it off. Came up short. And they had their chances. Those are the facts. That's all, and good night.

I am hoping Brady leaves the game from a fair but solid hit early in the first quarter and the eagles win by 28 points.

Whatever man. You had to scratch up two reasons why he did bad when there are multiple reasons he did good. Your usually not worth arguing with cuz I know it will never end. Congrats to the eagles they played a great game and congrats to Nick foles who played his heart out and deserves the win.

I was not scratching up reasons. Honestly as a spectator, those were the 2 biggest faults of the game. Both teams played very well, but the better one won.
Other bog one was the missed FG (holders issue)

It was a very entertaining game, but if there is anyone that the loss rests on, it is squarely on TB12 and coaching decisions.

Foles played a solid game and great decision making when it mattered.

Do you even watch football? Seriously, you have an irrational hatred for Brady, we get that, but does that make you this stupid about the game too?

LOL. I dont have an irrational hatred for Brady. I dont care for his cocky attitude, but I can understand how he used to be a top notch QB (one of the best of all time). I can also see that age has caught up to him and his ego put him into some bad positions and attempts to be the hero. It did not work out for him.

Many pats fans like to talk big about all his accomplishments but bring out the salt when he falters.

Casts of characters settled it. At this point it’s almost getting embarrassing to try to compare the two, BrAdy is so dominant in a side by side.

If Xerico did not provide you enough stats about performance and specifically big game performance to show you it is settled that Brady cant even compare to the GOAT, then nothing is going to convince you ever.

Brady just got beat by a second stringer in his 8th*** super bowl in a year of dominant reffing in his favor to even put him there... Your wins mean as much as your failures when it comes to the big game. It is still funny to hear you TB12 guys with you knee pads scrapping on the ground trying to come to his defense.

LOL! They got beat by a second strong QB with a second string coach by the EAGLES! Let that sink in and come back to us next year with some new stats.

IF TB12 can make it back and win another in year 41, then he has a chance of his secondary stats in individual SB games being compensated for by the false longevity and protection of the league which is now built around protecting the QB talent. Win another and do it over a dominant team and then we can put him in the real conversation. Until then, you all look silly after this latest performance.

you forgot about the bears... even with a backup QB they managed a win in D city on Turkey day.

They are legit contenders to go deep into the playoffs if this trend continues. D is so much fun to watch and O gets better at adjusting each game.
