    I do think we should have gotten a delay of game penalty because he was holding sheff down keeping him from getting up even though sheff was struggling to.
    If the team was ready to line up, then yes there would have been a delay of game. But half the team, especially the linemen, was 10 yards away so that was a good no call.

      Did you know that Geese HATE laser lights? Someone was shining a green laser light at the 100+ geese that love to swim in the lake behind my place(it doesn't completely ice over cause of a fountain in the middle) and that laser light would clear them like cattle getting herded. Was pretty hilarious seeing all those geese scurry away from the laser like it was some predator.
      How is tormenting animals funny?

Brandon joked with him though, he said "But you dont even care huh?"
          I wonder does anyone think that what you see Hillis doing in that video is the exact reason he may not getting any burn even over Jordan ?

          • Its amazing how the expectations are that every single rookie has to be great immediately or they busted lol . If every single rookie was great immediately do people know how much more value draft picks would hold .

            Nickel is freakin hard to play especially as rookie

              If only McD would allow Orton to call audibles.

                Not without the delay of game, no we didn't have a chance, but with the delay of game flag the clock would of stopped with about 3-4 seconds left that is plenty of time. This loss still hurts but we all have to get over it and move on.

                • If I was Scheff on last play, I would have starting punching the guy or try to rip his face mask off until he let me go or a ref threw a flag on him or me. I would have made a big deal about it to draw attention. Worst case the flag is on you, you get lucky the ref sees you are trying to get up but cant so throws a flag on him.

                  • Another thread about the refs losing us a game?

                    We weren't 'robbed'... they didn't "cheat" us. No one was conspired against.... we lost.

                      Worst case, you get a 15 yrds penalty (which you would hve deserved) and put the team in a worse position than it already was.

                        How? The game was over, only chance you had was to get a flag.

                        • You can't blame the officials for POOR coaching decisions...

                          • There were some bad calls, even my wife kept asking why the raiders weren't called for holding half the time on Dumervil (and she doesn't even watch football).

                            But, even the officials shouldn't be able to bail out a Frye/Losman/Russell led team at home.

                            The loss is squarely on the shoulders of the Broncos.

                              how about if he tried spiking the ball himself after getting brought down, and just taking the delay of game pen...? would that work? cause i know if you spike the ball after getting tackled its delay of game...

                              • ^^^ I would feel better about the pick if he was making an impact in the return game but he's not even doing that. I don't expect him to be a star or immediate starter this year but it would be a good sign to see him contributing more.

                                His physical abilities aren't all that impressive either- smaller guy without elite speed.

                                Don't get me wrong- I'm not about to write him off this year (or even next) as it takes time for young players to develop but unimpressive and underwhelming have been my impression of him this year. I didn't like the trade then and so far he hasn't done much to silence his critics.
