As a Packer fan, hoping the Vikes run up a ton of points on Sunday.....anything to get rid of the clown running our defense. At this point, Packers aren't good enough to deserve the playoffs.....but in a couple years, watch out.

Yeah things don't look great. Lets hope to hold up against the Packers and then face the Lions who might have nothing to play for that final week. Even if we win both our remaining games it's still only 50/50. Congrats on the moneys!!

I need to take a screenshot of this. Never thought I would see this sentiment from a Packers fan

Here is an example of "Minnesota nice" in action at a restaurant near my house. We really just pretend to be mean to Packers fans. The irony of this is pretty funny......

This year Russell played well enough to win more football games than they did. The Broncos need to take a hard look at Payton. Is he as legit as we thought he was or is he just another guy who benefitted greatly from a Hall of Fame player and a good GM in Mickey Loomis? I guess we'll find out, but I think the answer to that question is becoming obvious.

Stupid, stupid decision. With how tight the NFC is right now you'd think he would've played this one with a more measured posture.

Refs cheated out Detroit

And coach made boneheaded choice to keep going for it. Your defense finally played well. Just take the FG and play for overtime.

Did they get cheated by the refs or was that on Campbell? Me thinks the latter. From what I have gathered, Campbell tried to get cute and the player walked up to the ref, but didn't say anything. To report in you have to explicitly state it. Also, the refs announce when a player reports in as eligible. If Campbell didn't hear it, he should've called timeout. The play gets called back that's fine, but why do you keep going for it? You're not converting a 2 pt play from the 10 yard line. Just kick and take it to OT. Bad coaching IMHO.

General consensus seems to be the refs did indeed F up, and this ref staff has screwed up 3-4 other times this season as well. Campbell told refs about this play before the game, and they tried tricking Dallas but the dumb*ss refs got tricked as well.

Once you get backed up to the 7 yd line though, just take the extra point and play for OT.

This. Ref's were alerted before the game. Perfectly executed trick play the Ref's fucked it up and cost them the game.


They walked over together to report:

Why would Decker walk up to a ref and not report? By walking up to the ref the other teams knows what you are doing.

EXACTLY!!! Not 1 but 3 opportunities for the tying field goal.
That is squarely on Coach, period.

My takeaways: Our Air Attack is exceptional. The relationship between Dak and Lamb is amazing. I'd like to see Cooks used even more.
that last drive allowed by the Dallas Defense is concerning.

Is it big balls?

Or is it not having confidence in your team to being able to stop another drive and then score?

Campbell is so concerned with being known for being aggressive that many of these kinds of decisions are just stupid.

Correct. Same thing with Riverboat Ron. Being aggressive hasn't done anything for him this year except 4 wins and a guaranteed firing on Black Monday.

Doubtful. It's aggressive playcalling. As lakefront said, that's his thing. They're second in the NFL on going for it on 4th down. It's not like DAL was scoring at will. They had 10 points through three quarters and 20 points overall.

Ahh thank you both for explaining that. Makes sense now.

Sounds like some hubris was involved.

It does look like the ref got the numbers mixed up, which created two penalties on the play...illegal touching and illegal formation.

Ref Brad Allen told Cowboys defense 70 was eligible, not 68. So defense wasn't paying attention to 68.

Also the head ref said it over stadium load speaker "number 70 is eligible". You can clearly here it on radio broadcast. Someone on Lions should have caught that and got refs attention.

Sorry about that. I guess we couldn't get things going with our millionth different version of QB this year. Then our defense made Love look like a genius. Looking forward to April and the feeling of hope fantasizing about our new draft picks and their potential.
