I know a lot of Bears fans are pissed.  I also know Parkey's stats are nowhere near Robbie Gould's.  Anyway I feel for the guy.  Also even though we lost it's great to finally be already looking forward to what next season will bring.

Why should his play be scrutinized any more than any other player's?  They were only 5 for 16 in third down conversions.  They only ran the ball for 65 yards.

 

Prince's tweet was on point.

The Bears losing in heartbreaking fashion was fairly deserved for how much crap Bears fans gave the Vikings for all their heartbreak.

 

That being said, I was rooting for them because the Eagles fans are complete trash. I am rooting for the Rams or Cowboys from the NFC because I cant stand NO or Philly.

 

 

Kind of rooting for the Chargers but think the Chiefs certainly deserve it as well.

I feel like Cowboys fans aren't a lot better than New Orleans, but I'm more or less in the same boat. What makes the Cowboys tolerable for me is it's fun to watch Collins and Gregory, they're both playing well right now. I don't really care in the AFC as long as someone beats the Patriots for once.

My issue with the Saints and Eagles fans was most recently dealing with them. I also dislike the Saints because of the 2009 bounty crap and Sean Payton seems like a smug POS.

 

I cant stand Seattle because of Pete Carroll. He is pure scum. Worse than Urban Meyer in my mind.

 

Cowboys havent really done anything to piss me off in a while. That can easily change.

 

I ignore the AFC for the most part.

As a fellow Vikings fan, I nod in agreement to all of this.

 

I think the reason Viking fans don't mind the Cowboys, is because when I think of Vikings/Cowboys, all I think of is Moss blowing the top of their defense time, after time.:lol: (The H. Walker trade comes to mind too).

I would expect the biggest Vikings/Cowboys memory to be Staubach's Hail Mary, but I guess that was a long time ago.

It's not the first thing I think of, but it's probably up near the top in my dad's memory bank.:lol: He's claimed OPI every time it's came up.

Effing Drew Pearson pushed off....

 

Also I was negative 13 years old when that happened.

I think there's a better argument that he was maybe out of bounds on that catch where the cop/security guard kicked him.  I didn't really see any push off on the Hail Mary.

Just saw that stat that Rivers is 1-4 playing in below freezing games.  Rooting for them but beating the Pats at home in the cold will be tough.

I wish Burkhead played for any other team (except the Cowboys).

 

I feel the same but it would be cool seeing Rex in the Super Bowl.

What? You don't like the anti-climatic finish of only one team having the opportunity to break the tie?

They gave a second chance to the one team you can't give one to.

Why is someone confused by this? Even if you don't agree, what's confusing? Whoever wins the coin toss has a much higher chance of winning the game. Doesn't seem fair to me. College OT is more fair and more exciting.

The general concept for the NFL's OT is hot garbage. I can live with it in the regular season but there's no excuse for a playoff game to end like that, and I had no dog in the fight last night.

 

Every single other major professional sport in this country has some form of a balanced overtime: baseball is an extra inning, basketball has extra minutes and hockey has extra minutes + a shootout. College football OT isn't perfect but it's certainly more equitable.

 

As for the officiating yesterday, it wasn't great. Lots of problems and I don't think they all necessarily fall on the refs blowing calls. Some of it is issues at the macro level of football. But, if I'm a Saints fan, I'm also lamenting Brees going 4/11 in the final quarter and them turning the ball over in OT. If I'm a Chiefs fan, I'm frustrated that the defense allowed three 3rd and Long conversions in OT. There were a lot of opportunities for both losing teams yesterday to play better and they didn't. It doesn't negate some of the OT issues and bad officiating, but, it's certainly part of the puzzle.
