    As a collective whole, QB play this year has been AWFUL. It seems that the timing between QB and WR is off league wide.

    Either that, or defenses have thrown in a new zone wrinkle that we as fans can't notice which is giving offenses fits. That said, I am really surprised teams aren't trying to run the ball more in these situations.

    I don't usually comment on the refs.. but they were atrocious this game. That whole crew is horrible. I can't recall the last time I saw officiating that lopsided.

    This crew LOVES appeasing home crowds, the home team records show that fairly well (until tonight).

    Thank you, Eagles, for doing what the Pats failed to do.
    Now the Falcons just need to take care of business on Sunday against a team in turmoil.

    Well the crew did their best. It just wasn't enough to make up for how Carolina actually played.

    The Eagles are 4-12 against this crew. And apparently two refs believe it or not are Cowboy fans. I'm sure they wanted the Eagles to lose.

    This still gives Eagles fans nightmares. This was their year - and they BLEW IT!



    And then this one just for the hell of it:

    This same crew, last year, handed out 14 penalties for 111 yards when the eagles played the lions, with Detroit only getting 2 for 18 yards.

    In their last 4 games with this crew (all on the road) they were penalized 40 times for 396 yards with their opponents getting called 8 times for 74 yards. That's just ridiculous.

    Some of the penalties last night were deserved, but others were just ticky tack.. which would've been fine had it been called both ways. But that wasn't the case.

    I'd love for him to go to the Broncos :D  Then my Broncos' defensive line would be just atrociously monstrous :D

    Another reason, IMO, why attendance is down in football.

    That said, I've got a strange, funny feeling that this guy is a trust fund baby. Something akin to a vibe or a gut feeling.

    That said, I've seen his type at games before. A lot of times at Bucs games sadly.
