  1. You would need the entire video of the game and focus on the last three minutes. Here is my summary. They blew a spot by a good half yard but the Chargers had used all their timeouts so they could not challenge it since there was more than 2 minutes left. Despite the favorable spot the Titans failed on the QB sneak. But then the replay showed the spot on the sneak was was wrong. The Titans had timeouts to challenge the spot but did not do so. Firing offense one since a first down ends the game. The Chargers appear to score a TD to go ahead with 30 plus seconds left. As a scoring play, it is automatically reviewed. The refs were wrong. It was short. The clock is suppose to run off 10 seconds but the Titans call a timeout in case they score on the next play. The Chargers commit a false start on the TD run. The next play they throw an incomplete pass but PI puts the ball at the 1. The Chargers run it for a TD. Replay review of the scoring play shows Gordon their RB had fumbled before he got in the end zone but recovered the ball in the end zone. TD? No, in the last minute of a game only the person that fumbles the ball can recover it. While Gordon fumbled and recovered it, the ball can not be fumbled forward in the last two minutes. The ball is spotted inches short. The Titans accept the 10 second runoff. Gordon runs it in again. Refs are unsure about calling it in a TD. The clock keeps running while they are making up their mind. The Titans literally run off the field to try and prevent the ball being snapped again before the clock expired. The refs call it a TD. Again they missed Gordon fumbling the ball. It is clearly not a TD but the clear recovery that is required by the fumble rule is not established.. CBS's referee analyst is totally confused as the clock was not stopped during the replay. It looked like the fumble was recovered by the Titans after the runner's progress was blown dead. He did fumble but the clear recovery occurred well after the whistle. By rule the 10 second run off would win the game for the Titans. However, the clock was illegally run by the operator. The Titans running off the field could be considered a delay of game penalty which would allowed an untimed down. The League in NY decide that the Titans clearly recovered the fumble and end the game for the Titans with a win. It is hard to say the Chargers were cheated as no one including CBS' expert referee had a clue on what happened. One thing that was clear. The refs called a play a TD three times that was wrong. One was short. The other two had fumbles the refs did not see. I have never seen instant replay more fucked up than I did in that game. I know my explanation is clear as mud but it accurately reflects the fucked up way the refs handled it.
  2. I wish I could describe everything that happened in the last three minutes. There were so many incredible fuckups and tortured rule interpretation plus so many dumb ass decisions made by both coaches that is hard to describe them all.
  3. but I would have fired both coaches for stupidity. Tannehill is a much better QB than Marriota. Titans have their first 300 yard passing game of the year. Next week should be their second 300 plus yard passing game of the year.
  4. I tipped off Chapman's pitch to Altuve in the 9th.
  5. I tipped Green's pitch to Guriel tonight just before he hit that three run homer in Game 6 in the first inning.
  6. Both Mariotta and Winston are finished as both teams are looking to reboot their starting QB https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/report-mariota-winston-likely-done-as-franchise-leaders/ar-AAJ0AJY?ocid=spartandhp
  7. I whistled the pitch that was coming to Springer and Correa before they hit their 3 run homers tonight.
  8. Yankees are saying the Astros were stealing signs on pitches and signaling the pitch that was coming by whistling in Game 1. Great idea since they lost to NY by a score of 7-0 in Game 1. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/report-yankees-believe-astros-were-stealing-signs-by-whistling-in-game-1-of-alcs/ar-AAISVEZ?ocid=spartandhp
  9. Unless Tannehill gets hurt or stinks up the joint worse than Mariotta this week, he is now the Titans starter. No rematch of 2015.

  11. Funny the Astros hit home runs in the first and second inning. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/dejuiced-or-not-yankees-baffled-by-these-playoff-baseballs-in-game-3/ar-AAIQUDv?ocid=spartandhp

    Rams CBs

    Only cost the Rams two first round picks in 2020 and a 4th rounder in 2021. (Sarcasm). The Rams traded Peters to pay for Ramsey's extension but got a cheap but promising Ravens linebacker in the future.
  13. Winston put up 50 points as a turnover machine in the last two weeks. Until last Sunday, Marriota had not made a turnover although he leads the NFL in sacks. He has put up 7 points in the last two games. One guy can move the ball but bleed you to death with turnovers. The other guy generally plays turnover free ball but his offense will set records in sacks and punts. Yes the Titans offense has punted and given up more sacks than points scored in the last two weeks.
  14. Definitely not Mariotta. The guy had starting drives from the 40+ yard and could not get the Titans in the opponents territory. His interception led to Denver's only TD and the only TD in the game. The game was a punt festival. He was 6 for 17 with 63 yards and two interceptions.
  15. The Saints stoned our pass rush and Shaq Barrett who had 9 sacks in 4 weeks. It does show we need someone else than him to rush the passer. Of course one thing that hurts the pass rush is generally a guy is open as soon as the ball is snapped. This team does not thrive on coverage sacks.
