bouncing balls to scatbird#85 ...
In a game of this magnitude, i dont know how something like this happens. This was a third and 2 which eventually was the drive that lead to the game winning field goal. The only thing i can do is sit here and wonder, what if they made this call like they were suppose to?

Thing was- watching that play, we all KNEW he wasn't going to get the ball off in time. Doesn't matter. Every pass he completed was complete luck. Double coverage every time and some miracle happens to where they come up with the lame duck.
Guy could have bounced it off his o-line's helmets for 30 yard completions.
regardless, Flacco looks like a pedo.
For the first time in ten seasons, I absolutely lost it in my seat after the refs missed that call. I saw it completely as it happened and started shouting "DELAY" before the freakin' snap. I continue to shout at the refs (why people do that has always humored me until this game) and I must have been quite animated because I had people staring at me from six rows down. I don't think anyone else in Section 108 saw the delay. Boos should have rained down for the rest of that drive.
It was the worse miss on a simple call I'd ever seen at LP Field. No, I don't blame it for the loss but we can never know what would have happened if that ball was moved back another five yards.
Now you know how we felt on the Suggs personal foul penalty. Once again, that was a play that never should have happened because of the offsides call. Stuff like this happens, that does not mean the "better team lost." Yes, the better team on that day may have lost (in both games), but you cannot say that the Titans are a better team than the Ravens. Great teams find a way to win, and the Ravens did just that.
The only call (or non call rather) that I question was the lack of Delay of Game on Baltimore. That was clearly more time than should have elapsed.
And honestly, why do you need to allow that extra second after the play clock turns zero? You have a grown ***, professional QB who should be paying attention to the clock. If the ball isn't snapped at the EXACT INSTANT the clock turns zero, throw the flag. Stop baby sitting these guys. Damn.
You guys are worse than Buffalo fans with the Music City Miracle.
Suggs hand hit Collins helmet.
Say it with me Corky. "Suggs hand hit Collins helmet."
Suggs hand hit Collins' helmet.
While not flagrant, it will get called everytime.
Why is it so hard for some of you to understand that?
Amen brotha....it was pretty embarrassing to watch that non call go down. Hell im sitting there with one of my boys dad, that isnt even an avid football watcher and he is the one pointing out the clock is at zero....if a novice fan can notice this call, why didnt the refs???
Im sorry, granted there should of never been the turnovers, and if CJ didnt get hurt, the game probably would of been different regardless. But it was a tie game on that drive where the call was missed.
I dont care what any Ravens fan says...you won the game, but you shouldnt be gloating getting a win like that. If the penalty was called, as it should of been, its 3 and 7, and maybe the defensive scheme is different....now we will never know.
Titans turnovers killed them from having a good lead....but Ravens fans need to admit that the "no call" is basically 50% of what gave them the win.
Damn right they shouldn't be gloating. They should be counting their blessings that they squeaked by with this win.
We outplayed them in every aspect, but couldn't overcome the turnovers and 100 yards of penalties.
Given the fact that we had 4 turnovers and 100 yards in penalties, we should be lucky that the score was only 13-10.
I'm not going to say that the no delay of game call cost us the game, it didn't. The 4 turnovers and 100 yards of penalties did.
But that was a blatant no-call and the officiating needs to be officiated this off season.
This was by far the worst officiating season I've seen since I started watching the NFL. Kinda like the bad officiating in the Pitt/Seattle SB a few years ago, but a whole freakin season of it.
I mean you knew something was going to happen when Hoculi of all refs blew that call in the first Denver/SD game.
