I would be mad at Parkey for about 30 minutes because that's just how it goes. But then you realize that he outscored the entire Bears offense and that's when you find out who you should be upset with.

But when the hangover wears off, Chicago should be happy they went from the dumpster to winning the division in a season.

He's just going to ignore the Eagles loss to troll Cowboys fans.

Was he recruited from a mental hospital?

The Saints got fucked royally. That may have been the worst blown call (really two blown calls for helmet to helmet and pass interference) I've ever seen.

So you've got a team that was gifted an NFC championship versus the team everyone outside of Massachusetts is sick of seeing in the Super Bowl. I'm not excited at all.

The interference call is just another moment added onto a long chain of similar instances where the NFL acts reactively in its own best interest.

Here are a few examples: Quarterbacks get roughed up too much? Encourage the refs to call roughing the passer. The tuck rule. An increase of defensive pass interference calls to better encourage the big passing plays.

It's been talked about for years, but the NFL needs to make any call reviewable. The replay system has already slowed down the game, so that isn't an argument against it anymore. Keep the number of available challenges the same and the game should be able to adapt in order to stop something like this from happening again.

It really reminded me of the Lakers-Kings 2002 Western Conference Final where the refs let Kobe Bryant get away with a non-foul breaking Mike Bibby's nose with an intentional elbow to the face. Because if the Kings won the NBA Final would be a low rated Nets versus Kings series and David Stern didn't want that. CONSPIRACY~!

I think you're definitely on to something there.

I've had the same thoughts about the NFL with some of the narratives that have played out coincidentally.

On the other hand, the NFL is a group of bumbling idiots if they think that Pats-Rams is a blockbuster matchup. :olol: It could be, but I'm not sure if Los Angeles will be showing up for the Super Bowl this year.

My fingers are crossed for a debilitating Patriots loss to help signal a new era in NFL history (old Bill vs. new Sean). But if that's the game this nation wants, we'll get a boring slog where New England goes up by 28 to 35 points by the third quarter.

I really can't see the Rams defense being able to handle the Gronk, Hogan, Edleman, and Dorsett attack. Brady just needs 2 seconds to find one of them open. I hate them, but they're firing on all cylinders in the post season.

I've moved past the hate phase and am more bored of Patriots than anything :olol: If no one wants them to win, then maybe people should start beating them? If Tony Romo was able to pick up New England's scheme during that OT drive, maybe a professional DC should be able too. But of course, the Chiefs D lives in the league's basement. :(

In a perfect world, we would have seen a Chiefs-Rams rematch where the Super Bowl would have better resembled a college playoff game:

It's funny but I remember being at a bar in 2011 for the Ravens/Patriots AFC Championship game with a similar situation (fuck you, Billy Cundiff.) But revenge the next year was pretty sweet. So hopefully the Saints fans can have that feeling next year when an enraged Drew Brees is throwing TD bombs for 4 quarters like he was in NFL Blitz.
