Default pats vs. jags

horrible call. definitely a forward pass. but then again the pats get the benefit of the doubt with the tuck rule, why should gerrards "fumble" be any different.

who cares. Patriots are in.

im waiting for the "yeah, but they havent beaten anybody with a winning record" complaint.

yes, its true. no wins over a team with a winning record.

except Cincinnati on the road. but nobody else

except Chicago. But Cincinnati and Chicago. nobody else

except the Jets on the road. oh, all right. Cincinnati, Chicago and the Jets

and now the Jags at Alltel. But thats it! Just 4 teams.

that doesnt compare with that one win the Steelers had over the Saints.

It was a great performance by the Patriots today - pretty much marched up and down the field on a team that has been awesome at home.

Brady put this one his back and came through with flying colors - our WR's made some great catches too.

I was worried when Brady took that huge hit to the back when a defender led with his helmet (please avoid the obvious puns here ) but he was back in 1 play later.

24 points on a team that had been letting in just 9 per game is pretty special.

Patriots shut down Jones-Drew for the most part - excpet for the fluke 74 yd YD where he ran into the back of his own lineman and the nearest Patriots thought he was down - oh well you cant expect perfection.

i guess no one cares to address the bogus call to essentially end the game.

arm going forward + fumble = incomplete pass

simple

I'll address it.

The call on the field was a fumble - There wasn't enough evidence to be sure that his arm was coming forward while he still had control of the ball.

Seemed to me like the ball slipped out the side of his hand before there was any type of forward momentum.

We had one very bogus 'roughing the passer' call on an interception - but then there is plenty of those about this year.

well, i'll take an honest assesment over anything else, athough i can see where a ball going forward might "slip" out of ones hand while being hit.
