OT: NFL/NHL thread

i estimate that absolutely noone gives a damn about the NHL, so by folding that thread into this one, we won’t distract from what this thread is really about: boner pills, blood doping (is it low t?), and…jesus christ did mike vick just throw another ####### interception?

There should be two sets of penalties in a roughing the QB situation. That would be the lesser of the two.
   2402. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:25 PM (#4351143)
Gifted right back! MAN, that one is going to hurt.
   2403. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:25 PM (#4351144)
Did Moore recover it?
   2404. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:25 PM (#4351145)
feel batter sam?

and don't call the niners cheaters. they didn't make the call
   2405. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:25 PM (#4351146)
Lady luck giveth, and lady luck taketh away.
   2406. Tom Nawrocki Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:25 PM (#4351147)
Wow, he was about a foot from scoring when he lost that ball.
   2407. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:25 PM (#4351148)
Wow, what a great and lucky play. Some redemption from that horrid roughing call.
   2408. Srul Itza At Home Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:26 PM (#4351149)
Great strip. Great defensive play.
   2409. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:26 PM (#4351150)
Damn. Hell of a play by Robinson there.
   2410. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:26 PM (#4351151)
I take back what I said about this being on pace to be a shootout. Yeesh. Both teams giving up costly turnovers. Right on the goal line!
   2411. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:27 PM (#4351152)
nice play by the linebacker batting down the pass
   2412. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:27 PM (#4351153)
It is times like this that I tell myself, fumbles on the goal line are only worth like 1.5 expected points.
   2413. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:29 PM (#4351154)
nice stop
   2414. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:29 PM (#4351155)
I didn't say anything about the 49ers. I said it was a terrible call, which it was. It was horrific.
   2415. booond Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:29 PM (#4351156)
Big stop by Rogers.
   2416. Tom Nawrocki Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:29 PM (#4351157)
Huge tackle there to keep Gonzalez from getting the first down.
   2417. booond Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:29 PM (#4351158)
Big stop by Rogers.
   2418. Srul Itza At Home Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:29 PM (#4351159)
I sense a turnover coming on this punt.

EDIT. So I was wrong. So sue me.
   2419. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:31 PM (#4351160)
BTF lawyers, get on it.
   2420. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:33 PM (#4351161)
sam

pre-empting your fandom overwhelming your common sense
   2421. Tom Nawrocki Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:34 PM (#4351162)
Whew. I'm sure Harbaugh didn't want have to decide whether or not to use Davidakers from that spot.
   2422. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:35 PM (#4351163)
Oh #### you, Frank Gore. Classless ########.
   2423. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:35 PM (#4351164)
goodness, the kid qb has barely run but that corner was wide open out of concern for his running
   2424. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:35 PM (#4351165)
I am very glad I'm not a Falcon's fan.
   2425. booond Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:36 PM (#4351166)
Same play as last Gore score.
   2426. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:36 PM (#4351167)
That'd be something else if Atlanta survived that meltdown last week just to melt down this week.
   2427. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:37 PM (#4351168)
Harvey, the officiating has been fair this game. They just made a terrible ####### call on that bullshit PF.
   2428. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:39 PM (#4351170)
Kaepernick has looked very poised in the pocket. 49ers defense is not convincing today and a LOT of time left for the Falcons.
   2429. Esoteric Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:39 PM (#4351171)
That'd be something else if Atlanta survived that meltdown last week just to melt down this week.
On the one hand, I feel bad for Atlanta fans.

On the other hand, Sam Hutcheson.

On the one hand, Matt Ryan is an unfairly underappreciated QB with an undeserved "choker" reputation (HELLO, FALCONS DEFENSE), and Tony Gonzalez is a soon-to-be HoF'er who's near-impossible to hate.

On the other hand...Sam Hutcheson.

Nah, Sam's a good egg. Seriously though, I want to see a brother-vs.-brother Superbowl coaching matchup, so I have to root for the 49'ers and the Ravens today.
   2430. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:39 PM (#4351172)
It's weird watching an NFL where kickoff returns and defense don't exist.
   2431. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:40 PM (#4351173)
sam

you can say it's a terrible call but it's pretty commonplace

i say this with confidence because it's been called against green bay several times the last 2 seasons
   2432. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:42 PM (#4351175)
tough completion
   2433. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:43 PM (#4351176)
Where's the PF for slapping Ryan's head by Willis?
   2434. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:44 PM (#4351177)
You can't be serious about that.
   2435. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:44 PM (#4351178)
Matty Ice is doing a great job in the pocket right now.
   2436. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:45 PM (#4351179)
not a catch
   2437. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:45 PM (#4351180)
Don't think he caught that cleanly.
   2438. Tom Nawrocki Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:46 PM (#4351181)
Sam can't be serious about anything.
   2439. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:46 PM (#4351182)
David, if it was PF against 98 Red, it's PF against Willis.
   2440. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:46 PM (#4351183)
sam

when the runner is running, and ryan didn't slide, there is not blow to the head

you knwo that

you are just being a jerk
   2441. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:46 PM (#4351184)
Not sure they have enough to overturn this one. It's close. Ground moves the ball but his hand is under it.
   2442. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:47 PM (#4351185)
I assume it was a catch just because the announcers are so sure that it wasn't.
   2443. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:47 PM (#4351186)
and if you are being serious look it up.

it's covered in the rulebook
   2444. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:47 PM (#4351187)
They're overturn that.
   2445. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:47 PM (#4351188)
Harbaugh is pissed.
   2446. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351189)
Wow. I thought that would go SF.
   2447. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351190)
I thought Harbaugh was going to have an aneurysm after that call. It's not a catch, but whatever.
   2448. nick swisher hygiene Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351191)
one knee down before the bounce off the ground? (not that I know if that means anything but it seems to have been the case)
   2449. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351192)
Meh, I didn't think that was a catch but close enough, I guess.
   2450. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351193)
Harbaugh is such a toolbag. No way I can root for that guy.
   2451. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351194)
I thought most of the movement came from it hitting the receiver.
   2452. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:48 PM (#4351195)
The roughing the passer is not a terrible CALL - it's called 100% of the time. It's a ticky-tack rule.

   2453. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:49 PM (#4351196)
one knee down before the bounce off the ground? (not that I know if that means anything but it seems to have been the case)


Doesn't matter unless he's touched.
   2454. smileyy Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:49 PM (#4351197)
He kept a hand under it the whole time.
   2455. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:49 PM (#4351198)
Harbaugh is a terrible challenger. Although that one might have been worth it. He challenges or not on pure emotion and how much he needs the call. It's probably his worst aspect as a head coach.
   2456. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:49 PM (#4351199)
this is now a do or die drive
   2457. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:49 PM (#4351200)
I thought it was a catch. Sadly.
   2458. Tom Nawrocki Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:50 PM (#4351201)
About time for the 49ers to call some timeouts, isn't it?
   2459. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:51 PM (#4351202)
If you're the 49ers, shouldn't you be using your timeouts here in case Atlanta gets the TD?
   2460. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:51 PM (#4351203)
@2449 - it's whatever called on the field. The only reason it's not an IDIOTIC challenge was that if the ref random number generator goes the defenses way it's 4th and 2 on the 40.
   2461. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:53 PM (#4351204)
I think this is a great game no matter how it goes down in the last couple minutes. Probably Falcon fans are steamed that they blew a 17 point lead.

What about the uncommitted?
   2462. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:53 PM (#4351205)
san fran should be taking a time out here
   2463. Tom Nawrocki Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:54 PM (#4351206)
No 49ers TO here? That's insane.
   2464. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:54 PM (#4351207)
One play for the game.
   2465. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:54 PM (#4351208)
Here's the game, right here.
   2466. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:54 PM (#4351209)
Here we go. Game on the line...

If the Falcons win their O-Line deserves the bulk of the credit, I think.
   2467. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351210)
wow.................
   2468. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351211)
At least the Falcons covered the spread? Wasn't it 4 1/2?
   2469. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351212)
Harbaugh Two is in the Superbowl!
   2470. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351213)
Wow. No pass interference. Figures.
   2471. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351214)
cue sam screaming for holding

which would be lame
   2472. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351215)
Holding, pass interference.
   2473. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351216)
DPI? Within 5 yards (or close enough) can't call holding. I think it's DPI about 40% of the time.

EDIT: I mean to say, on the border line calls (which happen like every other possession) a play like that is CALLED DPI 40% of the time.
   2474. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:55 PM (#4351217)
Wasn't it 4 1/2


Opened at 3.5. Don't know where it ended up. I got it at 4.
   2475. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:56 PM (#4351218)
All the contact was within 5 yds. Was it PI? An extremely rough call against the 49ers if they were to have made it. Best call was a no call I think.
   2476. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:57 PM (#4351219)
It was interference. The refs missed the call. Which always happens to ATL teams in the playoffs.
   2477. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:57 PM (#4351220)
Ooh, the Yippee ki-yay post game is coming up! Thanks for destroying my affection for the first Die Hard, Fox.
   2478. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:57 PM (#4351221)
mike

give me a break. seriously.

i am so sick of people begging for flags
   2479. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:57 PM (#4351222)
Had to save the time out for 2nd and 7 up 4 with 1:04 left?
   2480. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:58 PM (#4351223)
Pretty sure it ended at 4.5 or 4. But that OR becomes very important.
   2481. zenbitz Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:58 PM (#4351224)
WHAT ARE THEY DOING
   2482. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:58 PM (#4351225)
Some inexperience here from Kaepernick.
   2483. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:58 PM (#4351227)
Harvey was 100% right about the timeout.
   2484. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 05:59 PM (#4351228)
This is where it's nice to have the best punter in the league.
   2485. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:00 PM (#4351229)
14 seconds when the punt goes off. 7-8 for the last play.
   2486. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:01 PM (#4351230)
Great coverage! Remember Ravens-Colts Niners!
   2487. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:02 PM (#4351231)
For a hail mary,put in the backup!
   2488. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:02 PM (#4351232)
What. The. Hell.
   2489. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:02 PM (#4351233)
What the hell was that?
   2490. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:02 PM (#4351234)
That was a flaccid excuse of a Hail Mary.
   2491. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:02 PM (#4351235)
hooray

congrats to the 49ers

awesome

they earned it
   2492. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:02 PM (#4351236)
WTF was that? Backup QB if your QB cannot throw the Hail Mary. Seriously WTF
   2493. JJ1986 Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:03 PM (#4351237)
Isn't their backup Chris Redman? He can't even throw that far.
   2494. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:03 PM (#4351238)
So, I think Kaepernick proved he's not just a fast runner today. Impressed by how composed he was today.
   2495. Shooty is obsessed with the latest hoodie Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:04 PM (#4351239)
Was Ryan hurt? He came off holding his shoulder a bit after the failed 4th down play.
   2496. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:04 PM (#4351240)
Redman cannot throw further than 30 yards? That;s as far as M Ice threw. A hail mary is not (usually) a difficult play for the QB.
   2497. Mike A Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:04 PM (#4351241)
Tough luck for the Falcons. Much like the Braves and the IF fly 'catch,' the no call on the interference? will be talked about for a while.
   2498. Rickey! No. You move. Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:05 PM (#4351242)
Ryan had a bum non-throwing shoulder from a late hit that wasn't called on the previous drive.

I hope your city burns and falls into the sea.
   2499. AuntBea calls himself Sky Panther Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:05 PM (#4351243)
Yes Ryan appeared to be injured, which might explain his weak ass "hail mary".
   2500. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: January 20, 2013 at 06:05 PM (#4351244)
this is so tremendous

i am so happy for my buddy who is a niner fan
