I heard a caller on the radio today call in and jokingly say that he missed the kick on purpose because he is trying to sabotage Peyton Manning for calling him out at the Pro Bowl a couple of years ago.

Apparently Cowher backs officials. Yeah right!
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/playof...ory?id=2295870
Quote:
"Our officials are doing the very best that they can do. Obviously, at times, there's going to be mistakes made," Cowher said. "To me, those guys are human like the rest of us, and we're moving on."
Now that is a joke.... that is so fairweather. He'd of been screaming if they lost that game. Remember a few years back (2002 I think) when Pitt lost to Tenn. Tenn kicked a FG in the last seconds - Pitt was trying to call a TO to ice the kicker and the refs didn't see them (or maybe they had already called one and were trying to again and didntt realize they couldn't call 2), anyway, Cowher ran up to the ref as the game ended in screamed in his face "You just cost us an f-ing playoff game!!!" You could read his lips, and he had that classic Cowher pissed off face. This is such a BS statement.... c'mon Bill, we know you better than that!

Well, what do you expect him to say? There is no use in getting a $10,000+ fine when you won the game.

I know, but he didn't have to say anything... I'm just saying it sounds like BS to me. Obviously he won't say anything negative - they won. Do you really think he'd be saying "Those guys are human like the rest of us, and we're moving on." if they lost?

Yes. By now I think his tempers would have cooled down and like doublee said, he would try to avoid any fines.

Ok, maybe today 2 days after, but even still I bet he'd have no comment if their season was over. He never said anything like that when they got screwed before, or when he thought they messed up in the Tenn game. I'm just saying, had they lost - he would of had something totally different to say or nothing at all to say.

If you guys hadn't read it already, Brad does a nice job of re-capping this weekends games.

Good work Brad - and that's coming from one of those "Boston fans" you love to hate!

The NFL was bashed on PTI today for being so weak. They fine players for wearing the wrong socks, but Jerry Porter accused them of a conspiracy in trying to get the Colts to win (think Polamalu INT that was wrongfully overturned) and he gets nothing. I do think that is pretty hypocritical.

Hard to fine a guy when in fact you were wrong. He still shouldn't of said it, but I think the league took into consideration his emotions (which usually don't make a difference) and that they were wrong.

Well, the thing is he should have been fined for calling into question the integrity of the league and its officials and not necessarily for criticizing them for blowing a call. Look at what the NBA did to Van Gundy when he suggested that the league told its officials to call games a certain way to ensure that certain teams won in the playoffs. Porter implied that the fix was in and that the officials were trying to make sure that the league's glamor boy finally gets into the Super Bowl.

No, I totally understand your point doublee, and I agree. But I think this was a special case since the NFL "came out" and said refs blew the call. I think, had they never came out with that, he would of been fined.

Is this caller implying that Vanderjagt is the T.O. to Peyton Manning's Donovan McNabb? :lol:

And of course some people see a great deal of similarity between Peyton Manning and McNabb - like how they do in big games ...

Peyton is 3-6, McNabb is above .500 [7-5] and did win a conference title. More then Peyton has done with a better offense.

McNabb came pretty damn close to beating the Pats in the Super Bowl last year. He is definitley a better big game QB than Manning.

Anthony... Please, I beg of you... please, let us have 1 thread w/ no T.O. :whine:
McNabb is nothing like Peyton in the playoffs. McNabb has been to a SB. McNabb was banged up when they lost to the Panhters in 2003. Peyton has has always been healthy, his team has been healthy, and they are most certainly always the AFC powerhouse going into the playoffs and they choke bigtime!
