Re: Forty Whiners Complain About Bad Calls

I remember Jerry Rice fumbling a ball about two yards short of the end zone and it got called a touchdown and we lost by 3 or 4 points. Was that the 2000 season, maybe. I think we were still in the NFC West.

Re: Forty Whiners Complain About Bad Calls

Listening to the radio out here this morning (sadly I live in the Bay Area), and the commentators were doing their best to spin it positive - like hey, we went in to a difficult place to play and nearly won.

They weren't putting too much stock in the "bad call" theory and the show hosts, at least, were of the same mind we are: Look, it was a brutal hit, and it's a shame that's a penalty, but it IS a penalty.

They're also trying really hard to not be too down to Kapernic (sp), but a few more craptastic games and the heat is really going to be on him...and maybe even the HC, since he essentially ran off Smith, who is clearly a better QB.

On another note: The radio guys out here were REALLY give the Saints their due, both before and after the game. One guy even said, and I quote, "That place [The Superdome] is the hardest place to play in the NFC, Seattle included..." Everyone else agreed.

They also think we're going to beat Seattle in a few weeks, or at least that there is no other team in the NFL with a better chance of beating Seattle at home than the Saints.

Re: Forty Whiners Complain About Bad Calls

I'm thinking about a different game, Brooks was QB and we were in the NFC West. So it had to be 2000 or 2001. It was a 3 o'clock game at Candlestick.

Re: Forty Whiners Complain About Bad Calls

I think the refs may have made a call or two in our favor, but hell it's about time. That never happens. They may have given us a good spot or two but nothing game changing. They just don't like being on the wrong side of the coin for once.

Re: Forty Whiners Complain About Bad Calls

This is a better angle.
Last I checked, this is what's called a clothesline swing.
Been outlawed in the NFL since mid 1970's.

Re: Forty Whiners Complain About Bad Calls

We complained about the bad calls in the NE game this year. It's frustrating to know you should have won but didn't. Not so sure the 49ers would have won even if Willis recovered a fumble. Saints would have won if the holding call was caught.
