Default End of game...

First off, I'd like to thank DJ for showing up. Great job there from a "veteran leader."

One question though... did the DB just shove Willis out of the back of the endzone on the final play? Maybe I'm missing something, but are DB's allowed to forcibly push WRs out of bounds? Anyone else catch this, or did I see it wrong?


Props to Tebow, holy cow that was fun. I hope this kid pans out... just so easy to root for. I've been pretty neutral on the whole QB thing, but he makes damned exciting to watch.

DJ got a hands to the face that the ref missed, and called DJ on a BS penalty.

Yes, Willis was mugged out of the back of the endzone and no flag was thrown.

Yep I saw that on the replay, and told my son they should have flagged him for PI since the ball was in the air at that point.

Yea, even if the ball wasn't in the air... they call that penalty all the time. You can't interfere with a guy's route past 5 yards, right? Willis was mugged.

I mean, we made a lot of mistakes and probably didn't deserve to win... but that was a bizarre non-call.

The refs completely ****ed this game up. They were as bad as a Casa Bonita enchilada.

I had to rewind after Drek's comment in the game thread. Yes, it was flagrant PI. Should've had one more play from the 1.

The call of DJ was incredible BS. You have to swallow the whistle in that situation. The "defenseless receiver" call in the first half on third down was also BS.

Clearly, Willis was fouled but the refs never call anything on the final play.

Ref make the call, we get the ball on the 1, Tebow runs it in for the win.


Everyone is against Tebow I tell ya. Hell it hurt them to over turn the catch by Lloyed.

I would not be as upset if it wasn't the fact that we for three bad calls in a row. Luckily the Lloyd catch was overturned. But the refs in the last 3 minutes were a joke. And SD had 0 penalty yards all game!

DJ is a complete tool. Don't put yourself in that situation, you would think a former captain would realize that.

I'm more impressed with McGahee. He had a hell of a game, and had Tebow played from the start, probably would have had a career day.

DJ led with his helmet into the face of a defender way after the play was over.
He essentially cost us any real time Tebow might have had on the final drive, by head-butting a guy after the play was over.

He was out of position all day long, too. Or, maybe it was a coincidence that when he came back in the line-up full time, RBs started busting long runs again.

He's getting a thread. If no one else starts it, I will soon.

Wow...what a game.

I know Popps hates DJ, but even though it was a very poor call by the officials, I agree with him that DJ should have just walked off. It's not a penalty, but don't give the refs even a slight opening to make a horrible call, so I'll give you that Popps, fair enough. Unfortunate that they threw a flag for it, though. And not giving us something on Willis was also really terrible. Not huge fans of the refs.

Tebow...wow. It's just electricity. It's the same thing we've seen from him before. Somehow, he can throw an accurate rope 30 yards downfield, but the 5 yard flat throws and a 10 yard comebacks are a problem. But he makes stuff happen and he's magic. There's real magic there, its intangible and it makes a difference. He's got to go the rest of the way. The staff lost control of hte situation with this game. I hope they open their eyes and just accept it.

BTW, at Miami after the bye....anyone know what Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is planning for the game?

I'll give you a hint, it involves Tebow. You can't make this stuff up.

Yea, just to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me... re-watched it. The DB literally just grabbed him with both hands and forced him out of the back of the endzone. This appeared to happen right in front of a ref. I have no idea why this wasn't called. It wasn't a borderline call, it was blatant.

It was an absolutely horrible non-call.

I'm sure its tough for the refs to make since Tebow on the 1 yard line is much better than even odds to give us the winning score. But that is actually how the game should have ended.

McGahee is pure money...always has been when he's given decent blocking. The game was a comedy of errors...even the refs were chiming in.

It's kind of felt like that for years honestly. If there's a bad call it always seems to go against us these days.
