NFL Talk - 2008

That was an amazing play. Imagine the strength in Thomas' hand where he can hold on to Favre's jersey with TWO players pulling away from him.

What play are you talking about

Denver/San Diego

With less than a minute left in the game, down by 7, Denver has the ball around the San Diego 10. Cutler drops back, rolls out,and with no defender even near him, fumbles the ball as he cocks back to throw. A Charger defender recovers the ball and runs out of bounds... but it didn't matter, the play was blown dead when the ball hit the ground, the officials thought it was an incomplete pass and blew the whistle, ending the play. They realized it was a fumble, but since the whistle was blown, the play was over before the Chargers recovered it and Denver got the ball back at the spot of the fumble. When Hoculi made the PA announcement, he said that the whistle was mistakenly blown... or something along those lines.

The Broncos then scored and converted 2-points to win.

Second painful loss for the Chargers in a row

That Packer game was crazy, they scored like 24 points in just a few minutes.

That Chargers/Broncos game was a disgrace. Cutler fumbled plain & simple. If the refs made the right call game over. The NFL should be ashamed. The officiating is a joke.

Packer fans are probably feeling much better about their QB situation. I think they are better off w/o Favre and they are becoming a scary team.

With inadvertant whistles, the play is always ruled dead at that point. It's the one thing the NFL has always been consistent. It is the one mistake you can't correct. Just an unfortunate mistake at the worst possible moment of the game.
Will it blend? That is the question.

right, once the mistake was made, they went about it the right way... the problem is that the mistake was made in the first place.

I didn't see the fisrt 3 quarters of the game, but just read that there was "technical diffculties" with the replay equipment earlier in the game where replay could not be used, but would have given the Chargers another TD. Thats a double screwing with no lube.
