Since when does Matt Ryan get the benefit on close calls? (Matt Ryan Mergers)

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Blown calls? Conspiracy theories? Favoritism? Now we're all starting to sound like a bunch of cry baby Falcons fans. Well, I won't allow it !!!!! This Saints team is almost 100% healthy and finally CLICKING on both sides Like Danno ...

Blown calls?
Conspiracy theories?
Favoritism?

Now we're all starting to sound like a bunch of cry baby Falcons fans. Well, I won't allow it!!!!!

This Saints team is almost 100% healthy and finally CLICKING on both sides

Like Danno said - Our A game is better than theirs

NO one could stop us last year and NO one will be able to sop us the rest of the way this year.

ENOUGH ALREADY

Now, let's get back to talking SAINTS Football.

Conspiracy theories? No. I don't think there is a conspiracy.
Favoritism? No. Other than the media love we are all having to endure.
Blown calls? You betcha red rider. Without them Atlanta doesn't win that game. One questionable call and two clearly blown calls...clearly blown.

I'm not being a cry baby falcon fan. Not even close, but those were calls that changed the game. I read somewhere on here that Atlanta had one penalty for 5 yards through 4 quarters. If that is true then the refs really were taking the 'let them play' approach. However, and if that is true, they did so to the detriment of fair play, as is evidenced by the two obvious calls they missed that allowed Atlanta to (a) sustain their final drive and (b) score a TD on it.

That's not conspiracy or favoritism. That's fact.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

I think it very telling that the game was carried by the NFL network and Millen/Heisman could not stop stroking Ryan's.....ego. I hadn't heard that much "man love" since the Darren Sharper thread we had going around earlier (thank you Mr Magic!). Did anyone notice when Millen said that Ryan reminded him of Manning and Brady (not Brees of course!)? It's obvious to me that the league is trying as hard as they can to push him down our throats as the next "Golden Boy" for the league. It is sad when refs have such an impact on the game like they did for this one.

My favorite was the 15 yard facemask penalty to keep the drive alive when the running back instigated the facemask contact before the defensive player did.

On a different note...how the heck is Millen even qualified to be announcing a game? I guess "utterly failed GM" looks good on an announcer's resume!

That was meant as tongue in cheek, SF.

Okay so we can go back n forth about how calls affected an outcome. And they did blow at least one call, but you know no one uses them as excuses. Baltimore had plenty of opportunities to win that game and - as I said - they were in it despite their poor play.

This one was on the Ravens.

I agree with you in spirit, but when the deciding TD pass was complete BECAUSE the WR shoved the DB down in plain sight of the referee I'm sure, if I was a Raven, I'd have a hard time swallowing that.

I feel the same way.I only saw the last drive of the game.I did see what your talking about though. The Ravens won because they were allowed to cheat right in front of the ref.To have one penalty in the entire game.There's just no way.
