He looked a hell of a lot better than the refs out there. What a clusterfark this game was. I lost track of how many 10-15 minute pauses there were while the refs figured out which game was being played.

At least they got the 12 men on the field call right. Unless you're John Fox, then they couldn't count to potato.

I actually thought there were some positives for Peyton. Atlanta obviously threw some stuff at him that he hadn't seen before, and really made him look like an idiot in the 1st quarter.

By the 4th quarter, he had kept his cool, studied what was going on, and was starting to pick apart the ATL defense. He would have won it if there was a 5th quarter.

The officiating just about caused me to turn off the game.

As a neutral, DID cause me to turn off the game. The incompetent refs are preventing the game from being played while they learn on the job. During the first big shoving match where a refs hat got knocked off, you could see they looked scared. A couple of them had no idea what they were doing.

I watch the league to see the best of the best, that includes the refs. I'm probably going to start missing games til these idiots are fired and the real refs are back.

Dear Roger Godell: Just because the guys at Foot Locker wear stripes does NOT mean they can ref an NFL game. Also, your $30 million dollar donation to support "player safety" just before locking out the refs makes you a pompous, egomaniacal hypocrite. Please take my "pre-season" ticket money and choke on it.

And not that I can offer a better solution, but us not watching on TV costs the owners nothing. Ergo, it will change nothing.

After that whole Manning and a fumble fiasco, Atlanta only had 10 points. Shameful for Atlanta. Had the game been 21 (or more) - 0 in the 2nd like it should have been, no one would be talking about the refs.

PS No one's problems will be solved when the "real" refs come back. They suck, too, and are subject to persuasive home crowds, favorite teams, and gambling odds. They're just better at making the wrong decision more quickly and covering their tracks.

Its a monday night and the game doesn't start til 8:45. The first quarter alone took a whole hour. I can't do that for a whole season.

I liked how they acted like Atlanta had been dominating. Naw, that offense was pretty damn unimpressive except when they were drawing phantom PI calls to bail out their stalled drives.

I feel bad for Falcons and Broncos fans who were forced to sit through that catastrophe. For everyone without a rooting interest in the game, I have no sympathy whatsoever, because you chose to watch crap.

That first half was a nightmare, and if you tuned back in for more after halftime, you deserved what you got. And you're part of the reason Roger Goodell feels he can do whatever he wants, by the way.

I'm pissed because next week is Seattle/Green Bay and I actually like both of those teams and therefore want to stay up and watch that whole game instead of turning it off at halftime.

I kinda settled into the whole idea that the replacement refs are fun to watch when you don't have a rooting interest because everything is a surprise. Who knows what the hell is going to happen next?

I couldn't really check their alignments- I had a horrid, choppy feed for the game*- but the Falcons were obviously showing him something in the first quarter that he was processing as "the deep post is my hot read", and then just sitting on the route.

*"I have an extra computer that I keep around just to be hooked up to my flat-panel TV and 5.1 surround sound system as a media server. The internet stream of a professional sporting event I was watching on that setup had choppy video, although the audio was fine. Because of that, I don't feel like I can intelligently comment on what one of the teams was attempting to do" is kind of the definition of a First World problem, isn't it?

Sadly you don't even have to be "neutral", as a Redskins fan our game with the Rams was close to unwatchable because of these chumps. The Rams got screwed out of 2 TDs, both teams got hosed on bad "late hit" calls, a flag was thrown (and thankfully picked up) on a guy getting tripped as he went into the endzone (can't go to the ground for celebrations). And that doesn't count not being able to accurately spot the ball, missing the unsportsman like on Fisher for throwing the challenge flag on a turnover, etc.

I'm okay with bad or non calls if they consistent AND you are managing the game properly. But when you don't even understand the basic game management things (spotting the ball, when the play clock starts, when reviews are automatic, etc.). The missed and non calls become epic failures.

Big farkin' THIS. That was without question the most incompetent officiating crew I have seen at any football game, at any level, ever. It was an absolute embarrassment to the league who will continue to swing their dicks around until the Officials' Union breaks. Just a travesty.

But kudos to the Broncos who still managed to climb into that game after that atrocious first quarter.
 
2012-09-18 11:48:21 AM
Stupid Falcons. I had a decent FFL lead but Ryan went out and dominated.

Oh, and Peyton: shake it off. You'll get the offense back together for Houston next week and all will be well.

That defense against someone who had no problems when playing Pittsburgh is a big deal, aside from a few missed tackles then Indy doesn't get that close.

The only thing that concerned me was the offense got too conservative in the second half instead of trying to attack.

If the defense keeps playing like this they will be a team for others to be worried about all season.

Woulda, shoulda, coulda.

How do you know they wouldn't have made more adjustments to force more mistakes?

I felt like some of the Falcons' defenders were getting pretty damn dirty out there, but I have to give credit to the guys who got a pitch-perfect read on Manning on those first two possessions. Pissed me off, somewhat, as I was pulling for the Broncos, but they really were pretty fantastic from a defensive standpoint. It looks like the O-line will need to do some serious work and Peyton will need to school these guys some more on that whole no-huddle thing... there was one play that just went all to hell because nobody did what they were supposed to do. Still, once the Broncos got settled late in the 3rd and in the 4th, they really got it going. They just weren't expecting the ferocity and speed of Atlanta's defense, and it cost them big-time early on.

I hear that. Packers fan living in the Western Michigan. Thank God for my espresso machine (and that AM 620 carries across Lake Michigan)...

But least I can WATCH this game. F U, NFL Network. I'm really interested to see if the Seahawks' D is as good as they say or if Dallas just sucked out loud last Sunday. It's going to be really hard to cheer when Clay Matthews drives Russell Wilson into the turf, though. Love that guy. I hope we sack him 9 times, but they are simple "dragged down gently as he's trying to run up field" types of tackles.

Yeah I don't care he got arrested, Turner has not impressed for the past two years, its why teams have not had to worry about any kind of running game and have sacked, hurried, or knocked down while throwing.

Peyton didn't adjust to the Atlanta defensive scheme quick enough to be able to engineer a complete comeback. But Denver also couldn't defend the pass AT ALL last night. That happens with John Fox, though. He couldn't make defensive adjustments if his job depended on it.

Im pretty sure Jack Del Rio makes all the defensive adjustments for the donkies these days.

And they bottled up julio jones fairly well, roddy and gonzalez had ok days.

The lack of a sustained pass rush from wolfe miller and did elvis actually even play in this game? dumerville has been mia the last 2 weeks.
