Very next play, the "hold" called on the center was no such thing. Even Collinsworth called flat-out bullshit. However, SD rusher spearing Brees in the chin with his helmet some time before was pretty much a self-inflicted 14-point swing. Still, the refs blew that last possession.
I think this was the case, but going back 2 weeks if the game would have ended that way the coaches and players would have been in an uprising.
This game was very controlled and no one even flinched at the bad flags. Still thankful for the actual refs even though bad calls do happen. -- Leaning out a window with a cocked shotgun. Driving up the block in the car they shot Pac in. Looking for Big's killers. Dressing ridiculous. Blue and red like I don't know what the big deal is.
Jackson is a company man. I don't think he will be leaving St. Louis.
He's been seeking a contract extension so that he can end his career in St Louis. Instead, the Rams just changed his existing contract so that he can void the whole thing and become a free agent at the end of this season. They also put a similar option at the end of next season. -- Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty - Ronald Reagan
Yeah, the Chargers got jobbed on that last drive. That was not PI on Gates.
I'm more a Saint's fan than a Chargers fan, but the Chargers got screwed on that last possession. Baloney calls on 2 completed passes. I thought these refs were supposed to be better? Sad, I would've liked to see them score and go into OT, not end like that.
49ers are a good team, Harbaugh is a great coach, and NFC West has the best record. Smith can be very good when the opposing D is not so challenging, like yesterday. It seems to me he gets a bit indecisive, goes all "deer in the headlights" when the pressure goes too high. Carson Palmer, for example, impresses me as being able to deal better with adversity, maintain composure, and make winning decisions under pressure. I'm not so confident about Smith but what do I know?
Niners have a solid defense and a competitive offense, one of the best teams, this year. There are a lot of factors and, given a little luck, they could_go_all_the_way!
The 49ers are scary. It was sickening to hear the "fans" cheer when Cassell suffered an injury. The Packers are not scary. The Chargers are going into their usual slump? The Steelers defense is old. Polomalu is fragile. -- "The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil; but because of the people who don't do anything about it."
Except for a brief period when Martz was coach, the Rams have been doormats for the 49ers for decades. (Google Ken Norton and 'same old sorry ass Rams'). With the Rams starting to have a little success this year, it will be interested to see those two teams get after each other.

Could Tebow be our "savior"? Nope. First you need a consistent O-line with better pass protection, a better running game, a better D, a better...well, basically a better everything. And if we had all of those things, then Sanchez would probably look a lot better. Make Tebow a RB. Hey, at least the running game *might* look a little better. -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
I agree, the season may very well be gone. (Of course, you never know), But the Jets truly suck. I don't care if it's Sanchez or Tebow playing. Like I've said before, the Jets problems go far beyond the QB. Hell, put Rex Ryan in there at QB, for all I care at this point. He may be just cocky enough to pull it off. -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
Sanchez is like a hot chick that you have no shot with but keeps flirting with you. He'll throw passes here and there that makes you believe you can stay with him but the truth is you're not gonna score.
