    I have no problem at all with blowouts as long as we are the ones on the winning end!

    I taped the recent Eagles game and it is definitely worth a re-watch.
    I think this could be our turnaround game of the season.
    We finally beat a team better than us and hopefully this will not only prove that we are better against winning teams but that it will also carry our momentum against other playoff caliber teams.

    There was a penalty against the Packers for, "Unsportsman like conduct" after a TD.
    What exactly did they do?
    Too many in the EZ for a celebration?
    It looked like a bogus call.

    Could you have asked for a better complete scoring game?
    This had everything!
    A pick 6!
    Fumble recovery for a TD!
    Lacy the Tank runs it in!
    A punt return for a TD!
    Air-Run to the receivers for TDs!

    Wow! What a great game.
    Now onto the next one!
    And may we have blowouts all the way to the final tick of the clock in the Superbowl!

    Man. I'll say one thing. We just embarrassed a quality team. I mean Sanchez or not this was plain and simply a beat down. I think our next measuring stick will be New England. They're handing it to the Colts in their house right now . If we beat them at Lambeau we could go 13-3 and host some tailgate barbecues in January

    Here is another question: If the Packers had somehow run the ball into the end zone for the flubbed extra point would it have meant anything?
    Or is it a dead ball at that point? (No pun intended.)

    I'm pretty sure they would have gotten 2 points for it. That happened in a game last week. Can't remember who exactly, maybe the Steelers?

    Oh yeah. That makes sense. The two point conversion.
    Duh!

    I have one problem with the blowouts. Last Sunday night there was no other games being played. Yesterday, here in Alabama the network SWITCHED the game when it was clear GB was gonna clobber them.

    Only compensation was the game they switched it to was Detroit getting kicked!

    On the extra point question, you tell me. Gotta loves lawyers, bylaws, rulebooks...


    Article 2: Results of a Try. During a Try, the following shall apply:
    OFFICIAL NFL PLAYING RULES 57
    (a) If a kick results in a field goal by the offense, one point is awarded. An artificial or manufactured tee shall not be
    permitted to assist in the execution of a Try-kick. (The conditions of 11-4-1 must be met.) The ball is dead as soon as
    it becomes evident that the kick has failed.
    (b) If a Try results in a touchdown by the offense, two points are awarded. If a touchdown is not scored, the Try is over at
    the end of the play.
    (c) If the defense gains possession, the ball is dead immediately. The defensive team cannot score during a Try.
    (d) If there is no kick, and the Try results in what would ordinarily be a safety against the defense, one point is awarded
    to the offensive team.
    (e) If any play results in a touchback, the Try is unsuccessful, and there shall be no replay.
    A.R. 11.3 An attempted Try-kick is blocked. Offensive A1 recovers behind the line and advances across the goal line or recovers in
    defense’s end zone.
    Ruling: No score in either case. The ball is dead as soon as its failure as a kick to score a Try is evident.
    A.R. 11.4 During a Try, placekick holder A1 fumbles. B1 kicks, bats, or muffs the loose ball (new impetus) on his two-yard line and it
    goes out of bounds behind the goal line.
    Ruling: Ordinarily a safety (11-5-1). Award one point.

    I didn't know this. If the offensive team fumbles and a defender falls on it in the end zone, the offensive team gets a single point. Interesting.

    I was in the same boat (I live in Houston).

    What made it even more maddening, is that after the Detroit game ended, they did not return to the Packer game, which still had ~7 minutes to go in the game. Instead, they went straight to "The OT" at which point, I turned the TV off.

    No. Fun. League.

    I am actually and genuinely surprised that they have not made the Lambeau Leap "illegal."

    I feel for you guys.

    I guess they kept it on in Wisconsin so that there wouldn't be any riots.

    In another rules question, did you see the 4th quarter of the Lions-Cards game?

    The Cards punt and their gunner grabs the ball at the 1 yard line, but is falling into the end zone. He attempts to toss the ball to his teammate, but it misses and ends up in Detroit's Jeremy Ross' hands, who then runs it 40+ yards to nearly mid-field before being tackled.

    However, the refs confer and place the ball back at the one yard line. Apparently, all the defender needs to do is "control the ball" at which point the play is dead. Even if his momentum takes him into the end zone, if the kicking team player has control of the ball prior, it is not a touch back.

    I did not know that.

    Sometimes, the penalty is worth it.

    This was one of those cases.

    I switched to the Cardinals/Lions game for the fourth quarter and saw that play as well. That is a really strange rule.

    Luckily the same thing happened to me. I panicked when I saw the Lions game pop up. Switched to where it was blacked out earlier and it was on. Whew!

    I don't have NFL Ticket, so usually make plans to go see the game elsewhere if it is not on TV. But, I was comfortable on my couch when FOX switched over. By the time I would have been able to get to a sports bar to see the 4th quarter, it would have been over. So, I just watched the Lions lose instead. Next best thing, I guess.

    But recovering a fumble in the endzone by the defense is not normally a safety so in this case no score. The way I read it, if the defense knocks, kicks or swats the ball from the field of play through the end zone it would be a safety and then the kicking team would get a point.

    I've got Sunday Ticket and living here in San Antonio, TX, they switched the game, which was being played locally on FOX here. So I just went to the Sunday Ticket channel and they were playing the game there. Also, the flag after the punt return touchdown was for "group celebration". It wasn't the celebration that got them flagged but there was more then just Hyde celebrating, which is a bogus call.

    But can't complain about the rest of the game!!!!

    Petty the birds didn't recover the ball in their own endzone: http://quirkyresearch.blogspot.com/2006/08/one-point-safety.html

    Would have been a first in NFL history.

    What? And actually have to shovel that darned white stuff off of my driveway???

    Nah.

    "Cold" for Texans refers to those few days that we take off our flip flops and wear shoes.

    Yeah. The switching games has happened twice in Virginia this year. I believe it was the last Vikes game where FOX switched us mid. 3rd quarter. We thought there was something wrong with the TV and began trying to locate the game on other Networks , Thinking the channel got switched by accident. Then this game? Liked you said it worked ok because we got the Detroit game instead and that was more important at that moment. I don't like the switching crap mid- game. It's rude of FOX and is building a poor reputation.
    Anyway , I'm coming your way. Moving near Crockett in January via Houston. Go Pack Go
