I started an NFL fantasy thread, just because fantasy is what keeps me most excited about it....made my team pretty stacked now through trades and free agent pick ups...anywho, that thread seemed to die quickly.

If you guys agree to spoiler, I will be able to join! It's probably too much trouble though...

My team is the Ravens. After watching the first 4 weeks, I was hooked. Also like Eli Manning and the Giants. Awesome comebacks.

fuuuuuuuu want to watch some football. Won't be able to watch the Thanksgiving games until tomorrow

I get that you can't challenge a non whistled play, but aren't all touchdowns reviewed??? They say that over and over in every game I have watched!

They say that it gets 'cancelled' due to the challenge flag but that's bullshit. I have seen other games where they throw a flag unnecessarily, and the ref just gives it back to the coach and they review the play anyway

Not on the road at least. On the road it's all about Ray Rice. Unfortunately they seem to want to run him right up the middle on every running play.. is Flacco that bad that they can't even do some screen passes to keep the defense guessing?

All scoring plays and turnovers are automatically reviewed. However, if the coach throws a challenge flag on a play that already gets an automatic review, then that play can not be reviewed anymore and a 15 yard penalty is imposed.

This rule was put in place because previously, coaches would purposely throw a challenge flag on plays they know weren't challengable or automatically reviewed by the booth upstairs to delay the game and to get the attention of the ref to go over to the coach, before this rule, there was no method of punishing/penalizing the team throwing challenge flags with the only intent to delay the game. IMO they should just tack on the 15 yard penalty but still allow the automatic review for scoring plays and turnovers.

The debacle solely falls on Schwartz and just shows what a shitty/gongshow coach he is. He knew the rule, this just happened to him last Thanksgiving vs the Niners, Harbaugh threw a challenge flag last Thanksgiving when Detroit scored a TD, the Niners were given a penalty and Schwartz himself was yelling, swearing, shouting at Harbaugh "Know the rules". This also happened just the week before this Thanksgiving to the Falcons when they challenged an auto reviewed play vs the Cards, so Schwartz had no excuse. Basically Schwartz has proven he has no control of his locker room with all the undisciplined plays on the field of his players and all the off field issues his players have, and now obviously no self control either, throwing a flag when he knew he couldn't and shouldn't.

I'm posting this reply without reading yet... so far the only game this weekend I have watched is Steelers vs Browns and it's actually an interesting one! Steelers are with their 3rd string QB and he sucks, and to make matters worse their runners can't hold on to the ball at all.

5 minutes left and the Browns are leading! If the fucken Browns can beat them, I can't wait to see what the Ravens do to them at home next week

Will spoiler this bit since Skinny is 24hours behind on games

Spoiler!


LOL, anyone see the sprinklers come on mid game in Miami haha


Any thoughts on the MNF game, 2 disasters of teams going head to head, line is -3 Panthers, I'm leaning that way and thinking of adding Panthers to 10 points first on a parlay. With Shady and Vick out of the Eagles, don't see how they can mount much of an offense.

Ended up hitting on my MNF parlay of Panthers -3, Panthers first to 10 points and over 41.5 for a nice payout, woot!

Skinny, have you seen the a Football Life docus? The Ray Lewis one is pretty awesome and might be of interest to you as a Ravens fan

Dude they were 4th and 29! And that was their last possession, Chargers would have won. He caught it at like 7 yards and ran for the rest of the 30! No matter what team you're playing, that is AMAZING. This will be one of the plays of the year

Right, but I'm saying that happens to the Chargers every game....

Wow, sabotaging your own team, Titus Young pretty much just stamped his own ticket out of the NFL if this is true, don't see how any team can trust him next year, especially given that he already had character concerns before being drafted.

Quote:
Per Birkett, Young purposely lined up in the wrong place on the field “multiple times” during the Lions’ Week Eleven loss to Green Bay. He also “mouthed off” to receivers coach Shawn Jefferson before being benched for the final possession. Apparently upset that he wasn’t getting enough passes thrown his way, Young responded by attempting to sabotage the Lions’ passing offense.

Young’s teammates understandably don’t have his back anymore; top wideout Calvin Johnson indicated after the Thanksgiving game that he anticipates the Lions moving forward with rookie Ryan Broyles and newly acquired Mike Thomas in the lineup.
Lions benched Titus Young for sabotaging their passing offense | ProFootballTalk


I also can't believe the NFL fined Earl Thomas $15k for grazing Tannehill's helmet, such bullshit. That was a borderline penalty at best, yes I understand he did make contact with the QBs helmet, fine, the penalty was by the book, but the fine, ridiculous. There was no malicious intent, Thomas was jumping to deflect the pass, no way he could've stopped mid air.
