Hey friends, good luck in two weeks. The Ravens have proven that they are the AFC's best team top to bottom this season, I hope this little streak of NFC superbowl champions ends this season. If Flacco can produce a superbowl winning performance against that serious 49ers defense he'll be stepping into rarefied air!

Get it done!

Until next time,
CP

My personal favorite is that after the Pollard whining in the Patriots forum, someone smartly points out that the 'defenseless' helmet to helmet rule is not in effect if the player is running with the ball and can see the hit coming. Therefore there is no penalty when Pollard decks Ridley. To which the response was, and I quote

Quote:
Which is dumb, because, as we saw last night, helmet-to-helmet on "protected" players will lead to Ridley getting knocked the F out.

For all the league does to try to make the game safe, leaving out helmet to helmet hits on runners is incredibly dumb.

Not saying the hit on Ridley was 100%, or really any percent, on Pollard (if I remember it correctly, Ridley puts his head down and Pollard's head happened to be in the way instead of him coming down for the hit), but it's something that should be looked at closely, considering runningbacks take a lot of damage to their bodies.


LMAO at how ridiculous the NFL would become if they tried to enforce any and all helmet to helmet contact.

The Patriots lose and now we have to change the rules. My oh my.

You have to know that the Patriots losing a game means there was some flaw in the system. They can't be outplayed. Simply can't happen. THEY ARE THE FREAKING PATRIOTS!!!!!

If they lose, it was either the refs fault, a rules fault, or some result of injuries that they couldn't overcome. They have never in the history of the NFL been outplayed - I think - at least from what I've seen from like 97% of their fanbase.

I just wish they would recognize helmet-to-helmet hits on the offense as well as the defense. It seems like on a lot of these the offensive players are the ones to duck their heads and initiate contact with the helmets when the defender already has his head lowered (to tackle, not to drive his helmet into the body). That's exactly what happened with Ridley even though there wasn't a flag thrown.

I know, I feel like defensive players are being punished for offensive players initiating H2H contact and lowering their heads. It's a penalty for defensive players to lead with their shoulder pads (which then turns into the helmet), but not the offensive players. I understand it's a different setting, but offensive players, if they lower their head and get hit in the helmet area, should either NOT be called a penalty on the offense, or should be called a penalty on the offense. A simple 5 yard penalty wouldn't hurt anyone too bad, and especially since RB's can still "truck" people without completely lowering their helmet (something your taught from day 1 of padded football NOT to do on offense OR defense).

If you're going to preach safety, has to go both ways!

PS: Did something new happen to Webb?!

I was debating this, but I didn't know if anyone else wanted to take the reigns. If there's no objections, I wouldn't mind getting one up by tomorrow night.

Regarding the SB, John should really call up Jeff Fisher for some advice on how to beat the Niners.
