Re: New England Patriots: One for the thumb: Roger that!

Was at game yesterday. Don't know if I have said it before, but Jets fans are the nut low. A (correct) call like that couldn't have gone against a more deserving bunch.

Also apparently the NFL rigs games IN FAVOR of the Patriots for...reasons.

tbh, we'd be pissed if the roles were reversed.

I understand the rule and the decision.

I don't see where there was indisputable visual evidence to overturn the call.

That said, I'm happy with the result.

Of course I'd be pissed. Overturn was pretty awful.

But these morons argue every single call against their team. Amendola lying on ground and jets player dives on his prone body? AWFUL CALL!!!!

Gronk gets tackled in endzone? NOT PASS INTERFERENCE!!!!

Legit the most idiotic fans in sports. I haven't even seen a close second.

Re: New England Patriots: One for the thumb: Roger that!

I think it was the correct call. Forget for a second that he landed with the ball. If he fumbled forward and it landed out of bounds through the end zone it was a touchback. The only difference is that he fumbles the ball, and while jumping in the air, he regains it, but his first touch is out of bounds. So that's basically fumbling the ball out of the end zone, he just happened to be the vehicle.

I'm just thinking of the glee you had finding those stats to "stick it to me" while agreeing with my post the entire time. Must have been difficult.

The Pats LBs remain slow and the defense remains garbage. If you came away from that game thinking "4 sacks and 7 plays for a loss, dilly dilly!" then I don't know what to tell you.

I'll never forget that. Also, for when we lost to the Jets on the new rule in 2013.
