Recommended Posts

But maybe they did us a favor as the article referenced... got us Diggs and a hungry and much-improved Josh Allen

They going to reimburse Cody Ford his fine now or what?

In hind-site, I'm glad it happened.  Same for the Hail Murray.  Those losses made this team better and gave them the killer instinct

That blind-side block call was the second-worst of the game, the worst of course being the decision to let the Texans off the hook for botching the second half kickoff return.  At that point, the refs just got out their Ouija board and made something up to keep the pro-Texan networks happy.

Did you see all those extra officials dressed in black head out onto the field from the stands?

 

I thought the guys wearing the stripes were in control of the game?

 

The only thing missing was the Black Suburban's ;)................but I guess they were parked outside ;)

So much of the stuff about sugar high Josh comes from the fact that we lost that game. There's no doubt he did melt down in that game but if that flag wasn't called and the FG is good, chances are he gets praised for leading us back in the face of adversity

The *****in' NFL apology letter to the Bills.  We got a drawer full of the mofos.  Did they also apologize for taking away the 2nd half kickoff TD?  *****in' #######s.

Idk if making referees full time will help this menace, but something drastic has to change! Overall, officiating is terrible and unacceptable.

 

BASTARDS!🤬

Cody Ford should ask for his fine money back .. he was fined for what the NFL considers a legal block ... I would have my agent all over the league office

With 15 months' worth of interest!

 

I will say that it does take guts for the NFL to admit they made a mistake, and admit it in such a public manner.  They could have just continued to officially agree with the call, while notifying their referees discreetly not to call it again.

You don't say?  Where are the posters who argued that that was a good call? :rolleyes:

 

And the premise that it got the Bills Diggs and made Josh hungry is dumb.  Even if the Bills had won the game, they would have lost to the Chefs the following weekend, leading them to still add Diggs and Josh to be hungry.

Not me.  This is not a Horatio Alger novel where “the little lad learns life’s lessons” and it all gets tied up with a bow at the end.  A playoff win in Houston might’ve helped this franchise grow even faster than it did, attract more free agents, build the confidence they need to beat KC, etc.  Or they could’ve gone on a run and won a Lombardi?

 

Life is too short for the shenanigans that go on with NFL officiating.

I have to admit my first thought when I saw the title of this thread was, "Wait a minute... they knew Deshaun Watson was a sex pest way back then and let him play anyway?"

 

You may be onto something there.  Why would they wait 15 months later (they usually acknowledge this quickly) and after Watson's issues arose?
