Re: I know this sounds crazy...

I think it was a defensive screw up in the coverage and Drew just spotted it and exploited it, like he's done countless times before. I think it's also possible that once the ball got heaved downfield some of the other Redskins players instantly sort of froze or had an "oh, we're ****ed" type of reaction, and gave up. The Redskins guy who threw himself out of bounds and whiffed on the tackle, just gave up. That probably made it look a little bit suspect, but he was out of bounds and that was all she wrote, he wasn't going to get back in and catch anybody. I suspect it made the play look a little fishy, but that's just a long shot dive that he was trying to make.

Redskins and Monday Night Football never mix.

They've had a bad track record over the years.

It was kind of ironic how easy those final yards went considering how hard it was to reach the yardage total overall.

Regardless, it's one play and had no impact on who won the game. It was a beatdown. What about all the sacks, fumble, the pick? Was that staged. Both their RB's going down. Staged. There is no evidence. Some are trying to "Kavanaugh" this team.

I know this sounds crazy, and I don't want to take away from Drew's phenomenal record. I just can't shake it and I'm seeing more and more plays that seem "funny", like something just isn't right.

Even in the Panthers game the other day. On the final drive, Christian McCaffrey made a "first down" that was a yard short, and there was no measurement or second look. Then the TV coverage quickly cut off. I've looked for that play again on youtube and can't find it.

I want to be wrong about this.

Do you think it was just coincidence that he was close enough to the record to break it on MNF?

Re: I know this sounds crazy...

The NFL has teams of analysts who can tell you them the best way to schedule games so the teams they want to win will be in the best position to win. They schedule byes and Thursday night games in a way that will better get them the result they want. A couple of road games cross country around a Thursday night game is hell on a team. Throw in some rule changes every year and a little help from the refs and you have scripted football it’s all about ratings. It’s not rigged but the teams the NFL wants to win are put in the best position to do so.

I always like the calls. Some of them are really sad while others are blatant and it's like whatever. Never happened. Even the announcers steer away from blatant non calls. We got a couple this game early that helped us but they were indeed silly.

Thomas facemasked the **** out of the dude in the endzone early on. It was as blatant as it gets. We definitely got some calls our way last night.
