I have a question on the timeout presumably called "before" Chicago kicked what would have been the winning FG that was nixed because a TO was called virtually before the ball was snapped. The NFL needs to have a rule put in place that the timeout has to be called before the play including the kick is executed. There has been too much of that happening the past couple of seasons. That puts way too much pressure on the kicker as they mentally have to get in the mode to make a winning kick only to have it taken away and have to execute it successfully a second time. IMO, if the offense is lined up in set position with the holder ready to receive the snap and the kicker waiting, any TO call is too late. I realize that icing the kicker is a mental tactic but they have to draw a line somewhere.

Nonsense. There is no more pressure on the second kick than the first one. Same result, make it and win, miss it and lose.

Kickers need to be mentally tough,that is what they get paid for. Kicking the ball through the uprights.

If they can't consistently do that...they don't keep their jobs.

and the rulebook allows for a timeout to be called up to the moment the ball is snapped. as long as the ball wasn't snapped when they called the timeout it's legal. and what if they are short a guy on the field? Really, they need special rules for kicking plays?

You would also outlaw fake FGs then also.

So those great SD cornerbacks that Hoiseth was talking about aren't doing so well.

But he didn't.

The run play was called to coast it out to the 2 minute warning.

I Can tell you right now what the networks and thus the NFL want right now.

The might also want west coast vs east coast teams to have nationwide interest coverage.. either way some past Super Bowl winner is adding another trophy...

Which sux.. imo

If the Aints get in I’d rather the chiefs or patriots win..
