    Of all the teams I had that would end the Eagles streak, the Commanders was not one of them.

    I know right? I just wish refs were younger, trained better and technology/communication was used, if the sky judge was so damn good in other leagues, use it.

    That's such a terrible call. He looks more like he slipped than took a knee.

    No team can win when the refs blow THREE game-sealing calls against you. Like "i have a grand on the commanders" type of blowing calls.

    Nah he definitely took a knee.

    Edit: after seeing that other angle, he did slip away.

    Damn, after praising the Eagles they go and lay an absolute egg against the commies that can't even do math to figure out kneel downs.

    Lay an egg? Sure they laid part of an egg and then the refs laid their own egg.

    Eagles were very bad in second and third quarter but that missed facemask cost them more then those bad drives.

    Anyone want to bet that next year facemask becomes reviewable?

    Exactly. To the defenders from that angle it looks like he lost his footing on a scramble.

    The facemask no call was far worse, but that was dumb.

    He also kinda admitted it in that interview.

    At least there is a silver lining for the Eagles, that shit missed call didn't cost you the season in the playoffs.

    Sure they laid an egg and STILL were in the game until the refs decided to say 'hold my beer' to finish the game off. For 'getting your ass kicked' I think a lot of teams wouldn't mind being in that position. Well before the refs got involved that is.

    The worst part about that loss is the missed facemask. Not because I think it cost them the game (it didn't), but because it led to an injury of one of the Eagles best playmakers that will keep him off the field for weeks. The NFL doesn't protect it's players, plain and simple. If you can't issue a penalty for a play like that after a review then what are you trying to say to these guys about your commitment to their safety? The officiating just gets worse and worse every year and they're never held accountable. It's such a farce.
    Populists (and "national socialists") look at the supposedly secret deals that run the world "behind the scenes". Child's play. Except that childishness is sinister in adults.

    It didn't help. That missed call cost the Eagles the ball and ended up giving the other team 3 points. It should have been Eagle ball WITH 15 yards and a 1st down. You saying the game plays out the same then? Maybe. But it wasn't in the hands of the players anymore. It would have been 1st and 10 at the 48 yard line only trailing 23-21. Instead when they got the ball back it was 26-21 and they started at the 25. One obvious missed call caused a lot to happen.

    It doesn't really matter to me because the game is over. We'll never know what the end result of the game would be if the facemask penalty was called. The Eagles had a lot of opportunities to win that game and they couldn't. I'm not going to waste energy blaming the refs for the result of the game. I'd rather see the refs held accountable for all of the missed calls that end in injury. The quality of reffing in the past decade has been in serious decline. They'll throw the most ridiculous roughing the passer and taunting penalties but never have to answer for their own fuck ups. They didn't throw flags when the Jags safety targeted Juju and MVS in the same game but they'll throw a flag when CJG hits a player out of bounds while both players are still in bounds? I can't count how many times I've seen Hurts get slammed as he's sliding without a flag thrown, but Heinikie successfully baits Brandon Graham into a bs roughing flag?

    It's a joke. To make matters worse, players and coaches just get fined when they criticize the ref teams so there's no feedback system to actually improve enforcement of the rules. And the idea that they can't retroactively throw a flag during review when a penalty is as clear as day as that facemask is just embarrassing.

    In other more stupid news, Dennis Allen decided after thinking it over that "nah, I'm sticking with Andy Dalton" is the right choice.

    I figured he'd be better than he was with the Raiders, but I guess not. He inherits mediocre teams and turns them into disasters.
