Cook >>>> Murray.

Murray easily replaced.


A bunch of nonsense, and the wrong way to look at it.

Murray is the perfect compliment to Murray. You need Murray to pound them physically, and to sorta lull them, so Cook can catch the defense by surprise and destroy them.

It seems like games against good defenses where they forget about Murray, run Cook exclusively, the run game stalls. I am not convinced Murray is easily replaced by guys that did well in the preseason.



Yawn

Worst part of Sunday
Had to sit and watch the golden boys of the NFL handed penalties until their teams won.


Rule #1 ........ If Brees or Rodgers don't complete the pass ... throw the flag.

The phantom PI call in New Orleans seriously needs to be looked at.
It got very quiet in the booth after they watched every conceivable angle and found out what they suspected.

Not only did it give the Aints a first and goal at the 1, it was on a 4th and 1 play, called correctly (AKA not called) Pittsburgh has a 1st and 10 at their 41. So it was really a 10 point swing call.

Agree, watched most of 3 games and some of a 4th and saw very suspect calls in each. That one in the EZ for the Saints was horrible. Refs certainly did the Vikes no favors either, thankfully we were able to overcome it.

Why would it have been made difficult for the Vikes ? Because the money was on the Vikes. The late game calls have an amazing ability of rarely, if ever, helping the bettors.

This is why penalties, and non calls aren't reviewable.

It's what I have said all along, there is many times a preferred result.

So you're saying NFL doesn't stand for Not For Long, it stands for Nationally Fixed League?

I'm sure I'm guilty of it myself sometimes but sheesh it was embarrassing reading catching up and reading all the fire Zim, cut this guy, **** this guy, Vikings sucks angst through most of the first half of the game.

We are not the best fans.

Crap like that is why I'm a Vikings fan, but not an NFL fan. If the Vikings lose next week, I may not watch another game this season. I used to pick a team to follow once the Vikes are out, but lately I just don't care. Almost like watching the WWE, where the outcome is already decided and you come for the show. Sorry, but I don't much care for the show any more......

National 'Sway' League

I don't think they fix games, just a preferred outcome at times.

I think if they were NOT messing with games, you would see more blowouts.

Betters would win more, so Vegas would have to adjust its' odds. A 5 game teaser, might end up paying just 8-1, instead of 22-1.

And I also think the rules would be changed, more precise, and maybe would then allow review of penalties, and maybe even allow an obvious missed penalty to be called for in review on a challenge.

Obviously, things could get carried away, so it's probably better we leave it the vague way it is now, maybe even eliminate challenges so refs can have an easier time 'swaying' games.
