You should watch soccer. I think some of the best actors are in this sport.
Flop city.

Jimmy, you don't need to push off anyone. You would have made that catch. You did make the catch. Ok we lived and learned. On to next week.

Re: We get screwed again

Do we really want to be whiners like Vikings, Falcons or Panthers fans? Or like the Niners last year? Remember how obnoxious that was?

It was the right call. Yes the safety embellished it a little. But Jimmy pretty clearly pushed him.

If we want to be mad about something, we should be mad about the entire secondary letting the 49ers best WR get open that deep on that 4th down. Two guys were with him and they just let him go when the QB started scrambling. That is unacceptable, IMO. They thought they had the game won and it came back to bite them in the butt.

No. It was the wrong call. They don't call that 9 times out of 10. He didn't shove the guy, he touched him, and even if he did shove him, that NEVER gets called in a hail marry scrum. Never. Ever.

I'm not whining either. It is what it is. But I watched that game with a rabid 9ers fan. He was red in the face, big chester cheetah grin. I knew it was a bs call, and he knew it too.

Doesn't change anything, and I don't think there's any conspiracy, but that was a call that should never have been made.

I don't have a problem with the call... Not happy about it but both refs threw the flag at the same time. They both saw the same thing and Cox did a great job of selling it.

Exactly. And, both things are true. The call shouldn't have been made, but since it was -- we lost. And, if we had played better, in other cases, we would have won.

Some people seem to believe that these two truths are mutually exclusive. They aren't.

Re: We get screwed again

The truth is when you have the receivers CK has you can pull 4th and 10 off. Too many teams have done it. We're just not special anymore. But the good thing is we could be playing Stanton. Right now I just want us to hold off Atlanta.

Re: We get screwed again

I do have a big problem with that bull shhiitt call.As posted above you see far worse non calls all the time in hail marry end of game plays.True the saints turn overs made the game close.However i suspect old evil roger the dogger wink a nod to refs to never let a chance to screw the saints go by.
