    Its funny but its no coincidence that when you are watching a really good game and enjoying it there are very few flags thrown and the refs are letting them play, the game flows better and teams have to truly earn yards and points by making plays rather then getting bail out calls.

    I liked the fact that Brady tweeted out the other week that he was turning the TNF game off as it was unwatchable with all the flags thrown, that is how fans feel a lot of the time.

    To me it is simple and always has been, ONLY throw a flag if it is a blatant and clear foul. Too often there are ticky tack flags and the refs are told to throw them if there is ANY contact. IMO that is completely wrong, if it is close then don't throw it and let the game flow. I think fans would enjoy the games far more if this was the case.

    I have never understood how the NFL don't see that all the rules and flags they bring into the game are only harming it as a spectacle, I know people over here in the UK who enjoy the sport but have been turned off by the numerous rules and flags, its just not something we get with our sport over here, the game flows properly whether its football, cricket, rugby, etc.......... and refs don't decide games.
    I could be wrong but it doesn’t seem like QB injuries are related to flags they throw to supposedly prevent injuries. They throw a lot of flags but we still see quarterbacks injured.

    The holding/non-holding calls on the offensive line or PI are just ridiculous. No consistency whatsoever.

      They eliminated the five yard face mask penalty and now call everything a fifteen yarder even though they’re not supposed to.
      It’s a mess.

      • Just had a painful thought....

        Am I watching all this football, and getting all pumped up, only to see The pats win it all again.

        Though I don't think it quite fits, based on the premise, are us non Pats fans a bit insane if it happens again??

        Get a grip (this is for me)….not this year!!!

            The Pats are always a good team. But this year they're not as good as stats say imho. Their record is so easy. Come playoffs they'll be challenged

              Hope you're right. Just that they seem to adapt better than everyone else. O is off, D steps up. Run game is so so, pass game works. Brady sucks, they find other ways to win.....I've been through this plot too many times.

              It bothers me that 31 other teams have not found many ways to beat them, other than our Broncos of course!

              • I posted this way back, and it matters not when or where, but McCaffrey is MVP so far this season.

                  • Ravens and Washington on local network. It’s ridiculous, although not a surprise to see Washington stick with Keenum instead of Haskins. They spent what, the #15 pick on Haskins? It’s a poor decision to not evaluate Haskins. They had 11 games going into today and should be seeing what they have to work with.

                      Mahommes got punked with seconds left in the half

                        I’m suffering through Miami-Washington and Bengals-Ravens.

                        Wish I could see the Texans-Chiefs but oh well.

                          • Miami vs Washington is synonymous with watching grass grow in a dry climate. Luckily there are other games to follow.

                            Mind you, definitely some high draft pick potential!

                                Saints vs Jags doesn't look that good either.
