ficticious helmet to helmet on usi;
eli twice getting hit late with no call;

game of the weekend if not the best playoff game ever since giants/pats super bowl was niner/saints.

should be a great game sunday.

Yeah. One can only imagine. Either way. We won! I don't care if we win any other games. I just wanted to watch GB lose. lol

That being said. I honestly don't think SF has a chance. Don't see why anyone would think they do. They BARELY won there game before. I don't think the giants are going to let them pass.

hey jukie it is like they wrote in n.y. times after saturdays win. nobody east of the sierras knows how good the niners have played this season and what they're capable of. it would be a mistake to underestimate them.

i don't know who's going to win, but the niners have been in every game this year so i expect a close game on sunday. i will say i don't think the niners
could have beaten green bay at home as, unlike the giants, they are not a cold weather team. giants play outdoors in freezing temps so green bay had no advantage there, but they would against the niners who i don't think have
played a cold weather game all year.

I know anything can happen. Just saying in this case I believe nothing will happen. Long as its a close game with no bs calls. I'll be happy either way.

The NFL is spinning the fumble fiasco. They're claiming (despite visual evidence) that the runners calf was down.

Like hell he was. I'm not conspiracy buff but there was something very suspicious about that non-fumble call. The ref is under the hood and communicating with the league reviewers and nobody could clearly see that Jennings knees had not hit the ground when the ball came out? The Giants recovering could have blown the game open if they scored and I can't imagine that the league wanted that. I'm sure that I'm wrong but this one made no sense at all and really undermined the purpose of replay.

What's funny is EVERYONE seems to agree that the call was BS. Even die hard GB fans admit the call was wrong. But hey, they were on the good side of that call.

Just FYI, there's no such thing as "league reviewers." He's communicating with the people in the TV truck who are showing him the replays.

Hmm... then he holds the sole distinction of being the worst football official in the country Hopefully he will not be allowed to get near any of the remaining games.

He's the same guy who botched major calls in Super Bowl XL.

you might give my opinion of how good the niners have played this year a little credence since i obviously noted the many failings of the refs that worked against the giants in the packer game.

you will see my points come sunday.

if that's the case then the NFL should do replays the same way that the NHL does. The NHL reviews are done in the league office in Toronto and relayed to the referee. This works because the on-ice officials are removed from the equation. The NFL should do the same. Maybe a referee is reluctant to overrule a back judge in his crew on a close call but the call on Sunday was so blatantly wrong that reversing it would have been no issue at all. If league officials had done the review, the call might have been reversed immediately and there would have been no pressure on the referee.

There are plenty of things that need to change about the NFL's replay system.

Referee assignments for conference championships, Pro Bowl and Super Bowl have been announced. John Parry is the Super Bowl XLVI referee.

Jeez, Mike Carey has really fallen off his game. After being the ref for Super Bowl XLII, I don't think he's done any playoffs since. FYI, I don't know him actually, but I do know someone who works for his ski accessories company here in San Diego.

Mike Carey is my favorite NFL official. He has always done the best jobs, IMHO, of both officiating and explaining his rulings.

He always says "Offense!" and "Defense!" so suddenly when explaining penalties.

It's because he wants to be suspenseful. Same with his arm motion, you never know which way he's going to point until "Penalty on the *BAM!* DEFENSE!"
