I officially have no idea how any games are going to turn out. My football pool picks are going into the negative.

The "non call" for offensive pass interference could have just as easily happened with regular refs. There is "non called" contact on almost every play. I was surprised at the explaination given by the NFL. I was unaware of the dual possession rule in the endzone. With that rule in effect, it looks like by the time they touched the endzone, both Tate and Jennings had the ball. If that is the case, the refs got it right. WoW!

They still need to get the regular refs back ASAP.

First off, I'd like to see the regular officials back simply because the replacements have no control of the game. We have helmet to helmet hits, quarterbacks losing pieces of ears, chippiness and fighting. The players are acting like junior high students with a long term substitute teacher. They are taking unnecessary cheap shots and trying to get away with extra nonsense simply because they feel there is no chance of repercussion. How long before somebody gets seriously hurt? The sad thing is, this won't stop UNTIL somebody gets hurt, OR the fans quit watching/going to games, OR the players threaten to strike.

Secondly, shame on Green Bay for being in a position against Seattle...AGAINST FREAKING SEATTLE where a play like that could cost them. Rodgers was sacked 9 times. They could only muster up 12 points. Green Bay didn't perform well enough to deserve to win that game.

Texans against the 49ers in the Superbowl, I'm calling it now. I'd be tempted to say the Falcons, but they have an awesome habit of shitting the bed during the play-offs. If this happens I'm rooting for the Texans, J.J. Watt is a beast.

Other considerations: Patriots (nah, reckon we'll lose to Houston or...), Ravens (same as above, but replace Falcons with Flacco).

Funny, Cowboy's fans said the same thing. Might be time for somebody to realize that Seattle actually has a good defense

I've been telling people for 8 games now that Rodger has lost some confidence and is no longer making quick decisions. He's holding the ball far too long.

But, people keep telling me he's the MVP

Is he hurt? I mean there was one play in the first half where he went back to pass, and just fell down. Does he have a bum leg or knee or something? Otherwise, I think he's a more than capable QB. I'd put him on my team any day.
