    NFL is a joke

    That FG doesnít happen without a complete joke call on Chubb hitting Trubisky from behind as he throws.

    Worst call Iíve ever seen in my life. I mean literally what is defense to do in todayís NFL.

    What a complete embarrassing joke.

    Have you noticed all the new officials these past 2 seasons? I dunno where they're all going. It's not like they were that great back before either


    NFL needs to take control of how bad the officiating is ....... I don't know how but it's their responsibility.

    Well the Bears covered the spread due to that kick. So they probably made money off of it.

    I just got into flyfishing a couple of weeks ago, so this will free up more time for that. Worst day fishing is better than the average Broncos game.

    We are the worst team in the AFC West. Thatís most likely the season looking at the schedule. 0-3 after next week at Lambeau Field against the Packers.

    Ok, so the timing of Chubb's penalty was absolutely horrible made worse by the fact it was a terrible call. However, we were bailed out earlier with a roughing the passer call against the Bears that should not have been called either.

    Bad calls. Even Bolles said they missed calls on him during the game and even called Leary for one of his holds. (j/k)

    Thatís not my point in the slightest.

    My point is that I can no longer stand that you are not allowed to play defense in the nfl anymore. Itís not just this call against us. It goes back to the god awful roughing the passer against Clay Matthews last year when the Packers had a game ending interception negated.

    These calls against defenders hitting the qb before the ball is released is just flat disgusting. And the whole concept of ďhe landed on the qbĒ. Oh boo hoo. Why can any player but the qb be landed on? What are defenders supposed to do? Itís absurd.

    This is why NFL makes me laugh. A coach can challenge a bad PI call, or one that wasnít called when it shouldíve been...

    But they canít challenge a bad roughing the passer call?

    Why are challenges arbitrary?

    Either you can throw a red flag to challenge a call or you canít, no?

    Was kind of wondering this myself. But we had no timeouts. You canít challenge anything at all if you have no timeouts left to burn if you lose.

    Plus challenges come from the booth in the final two minutes. Nothing Fangio couldíve done.

    exactly ....... when all the chips are in the middle of the table, it all goes to booth. And sadly even when they do review plays they still don't correct them. If there's review - make the correct call or don't review at all

    NFL has made a mess with all this officiating hitting out of Tackle football. Some of my older friends have already left watching NFL.

    And now all these new officials too. I dunno where the experienced guys went. Retired? TV?

    Games like this make me want to quit watching the NFL. It's hard to break a lifetime of habit though.

    I am disgusted myself. Has there ever been someone in the last 10 years to actually MISS a game winning kick against us in Mile High? I swear, if someone lined up for an 80 yard field goal against Denver in Mile High to win the game, it would sail right on through. I'm really sick and tired of that.

    Let's be real. We never stood a chance in the first place. Mahomes is beyond elite and a future HOFer. I hate saying it but that dude is just too good, so until we hire someone with a clear and modern vision, that can draft a real upper-tier NFL-caliber QB to save his life, we're gonna play second fiddle to the Chiefs.

    For now, we're stuck with Elway as our GM. It is what it is.
