It's been gif'd already. Go internets, go!

I'm glad this game is horrible (unless you are an Eagle fan, that is). I can go to bed early. No need to watch this ass whippin'.

Tebow was pretty clearly not going to be a good NFL QB; his mechanics are terrible, he doesn't have a real arm, and he isn't accurate enough. That being said, there's "not being a good NFL QB" and what we saw today. Good lord, he was stinking awful. I watched about a half's worth of that game, and he seemed genuinely shocked on almost every play that things weren't working for him.

Can someone explain how a ref can screw up an incomplete pass call that badly? Philly shouldn't have gotten another challenge because they've had 2 successful ones, they should have gotten it back because they shouldn't have had to do it in the first place.

At the least, everyone in the stadium should have gotten a chalupa.

Didn't get a chance to watch most of the game but did see that ending play in the NE/PITT game. My question is, when reviewing the play, it was obvious that Troy P. hit the ball toward the end zone which is illegal. Why didn't they kill the play/call penalty, etc.?

Because you can't call penalties when reviewing footage.

I thought you just couldn't advance it by hitting it? Like you hit it forward, someone recovers it, you get it back at the spot you hit it?

I thought punching it out of bounds was ok? Maybe I should read the rules? Seemed like a great play the way it worked out. I thought he was being smart by hitting it towards the end zone, not that he was cheating...

Yeah. That was pretty retarded.

I believe that just applies to the offense. A defensive player can pretty much do whatever they want to the football when its on the ground. I'm not sure they can kick it though.. that might be illegal.

Yes, because using your feet in football is just plain silly.

Im sick of WR's pleading for interference on every damn play... at this point I want that to be a penalty.

This has seemed particularly bad today.

Not to hate.. since all WR's do it.. but yes.. on every single play by the Giants WR's they looked for a flag..basically they don't want any defense to be played.. just run routes without any DB's.

Well, by specifying "Giants WRs" (*EDIT* and being that you're an Eagles fan), you are hating. Your Eagles do it too. All WRs do it, no need to mention the Giants.

*EDIT*
Granted, you were probably watching the Giants game while posting this, so it's a topical point. However, all WRs do it. They're all prima donnas (for the most part), they talk more sh*t than any other position, and they touch the ball maybe 3-7 times a game, if that. With that said, I think Brandon Marshall did it just as many times in that game as the entire Giants WRs did.

Meanwhile, the most respectful position players on the team are the RBs, and they're the ones that should hoot and hollar, since they get beat to sh*t more than any other position, with maybe the exception of QB. Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith, etc. The Jerry Rice's of the world are VERY far and few between.

Will you two just f*ck already and let the rest of us write off the NFC east as planned?

hmm.. here I thought I was being clear by saying ALL WR's do it.. And yes I was watching the Giants game.. and yes last night many Eagles WR and TE's did it as well.. its annoying and should stop.

Douche Face sighting!

Jesus Christ, would somebody please win this damn game. Preferably the Chiefs since I picked them.

Wow. And I thought the World Series errors last week were bad.

At least it was a memorably and entertainingly badly-played game for a change. That was the best night game in weeks. And yes, I'm damning with faint praise.
