|Can someone explain to me what the hell the "tuck rule" in the NFL actually is? Seriously, that Jaguar QB pulls down an attempted pass, gets spun by the pass rusher and flips the ball backwards 5 yards, and that's somehow an incomplete pass. I'm really confused, the Patriot's Tom Brady fumble during the playoff game against the Raiders was a FUMBLE! The fumble by the Jags QB the other night was a FUMBLE! Come on NFL, get your F'n act together and fix this stupid rule. It's broken, it sucks. |
Here's my suggestion, the QB gets hit holding the ball out away from his body above his waist, the ball falls out even or forward from him and to the ground, it's an incomplete pass. If the ball fall's out backwards and hits the ground like the Jags QB play from the other night, it's a fumble. Holding the ball below your waist and dropping it, especially during pump-fakes like that Tom Brady play, is a fumble. How simple is that for your rules committee. I repeat, this rule is broken and is in dire need of fixing. Review it (and not by the Referee on the field), please... otherwise you might as well go co-ed and play flag football instead. The NFL is not for wimps, quit designing rules that are.

Um... that's a problem, but I think a much bigger problem is on the other side of the throw and is the fact that refs STILL whistle incomplete passes almost instinctively and I don't know why. If a ball hits the ground and someone runs away with it, you can always review it and make it into an incomplete pass. You cannot, however, over-rule an incomplete pass called on the field. That freaking kills me. You see head coaches talking to refs and it's like you can see the reply: "Yeah coach, I really screwed the pooch on that call. But you see, you can't review it and since I just can't let the system do it's job, I figured I would go ahead and call the play something it's not. Sorry."
Hey Luke, along with what you say, you have the "down by contact" play with the possiblity of review that can't be over-ruled to be included too. Just a couple of rules to tighten up. College football is getting closer to a better way for handling reviews, you just can't over do it and drag everything out endlessly, the game will always allow some human judgment error mistakes to infiltrate the game, you have to make it easier for the Ref's on the field to make the correct call.
BK: I absolutely agree with you! BUT, the stupidity of the current "Tuck Rule" can’t hold a candle to the new "Fluorescent Green Dot" on the QB helmets…
When I heard what the “Green Dot” was about, I thought it was made up by a couple of four year olds in the backyard sandbox… Sorry, but this “Green Dot” bullshit sounds too much like something the field fairies would do in soccer…
Who in what marketing dept. hell came up with the idea of the green dot anyway? It's so frickin' obnoxious, and another wimpy way to deal with the possibility of a team taking advantage of 2 players with radio's in their helmets on the field at the same time. Has any team actually done this? Has it became a problem? I don't know about other teams colors but it sure does clash with the Pine Forest Green and School Bus Yellow of that perfectly colored Green Bay Packerst uniform. Again, we've gone over this before about Wimpy Rules for NFL Football Games, get rid of the green dot and if you insist, really insist, just simply make it an NFL Logo for cris'sakes!!! Green Dot my ass!
It's as simple as the caliber of the quarterbacks out there in our division! Who is better than our guy? grossman? are you s--ting me a half-romulan cry baby (and tony kornheisers sister!)... Or maybe Kitna, a real "has-been" or better yet "never was"? and I can't even remember who the Queens got but he must suck too! Were #1 and we know it and so do they!! GO PACK GO!!!!!!
BIG ERN said so!!!!
The Packers have the top 2 QB's in the NFC North...
Hey Kid ,Ya think we should give ole J. Trotter a looksee were not very deep at LB are we.....
Trotter's too old, too late to help the Packers with a defensive and locker room leader. Our top 3 LB's are better all-round players than the run-stuffing, but now injury prone and aging Jeremiah.
This says it all against the Seachickens (or anyone) tonight:
Jim, love the skull and bones... very nice! There are going to be a few of those "pick your poison" games for opposing QB's when they face the Packers D this year. Every week would be OK with me
notty is an embarrassment...
in reference to Packers DB assistant coach Kurt Schottenheimer, aaah, I'm not sure exactly where the problem is, he calls plays where the CB's leave their guys and jump into short zone's looking for RB's or TE's floating out and somehow the Safety's don't always adjust correctly. Too complicated, too late of play-call, or players missing the call. Don't know... his scheme works most of the time.
After last night's game, I can say that the Bears, once again, look solid. Stout defense and they know how to move the ball. And if anyone is stupid enough to kick to Devon Hester, well, they'll get what they deserve.
And then there's Sexy Rexy.....one int and three fumbles. Two of the fumbles were pulling out from under center too fast. Yup, just pop him a bit and he gets skittish.
Here in J-ville, we're getting more Chi-fans taking jobs as Rockford businesses close. When they get cocky about their chances in 07, I've got the same rap I used in 06.
Just look 'em in the eye, smile and say "look, Hoss- I got two words for you... Rex Grossman." Heh, heh, heh.
Les in Janesville
Da' Bears still suck! Grossman needs to take very big strides to show he doesn't still suck! This year is the one where the Bears defense only scores 2 TD's (17 less than usual) so the Bears won't have the same amount of wins as in previous years. Are you still allowed to hunt Bears in Janesville? One would hope so...
BeerKid, Can you do a tribute to the Coach Walsh? Where would we be without his genius? I don’t want to know… After all he gave the Green Bay Packers, Mike Holmgren, Andy Reid, Mooch, Rocky Rhodes, Marty, Big Mac, Chuckie.
With out the influence of Bill Walsh it's incredibly un-likely that the Packers would have taken a chance on one of his student's, that's Mike Holmgren, and you just wonder if the Packers would have had the same level of success over the last 15 years.
BeerKid, "Robert will no longer be a Packer," said Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. "We're going to go in another direction. We're moving on with the other guys and that's where it stands right now."
I am glad they made this decision and we are moving on. Robert has been given many chances and has not produced. Thanks TT,

Fergie was one of those guys you always rooted for to do well, and just when the spark comes on... he's out with an injury. Even though he went to the hated Vikqueens, I'll still stand behind him and wish him well, even though I'll be sending some ill-will his new team's way.
BK... 'stole' this pic of The Donald from a website that someone posted this home-took pic from Family Night at Lambeau. But sorry, he looks so armed and dangerous. What a tremendous picture! Bow Flex? lol
GO PACK GO! Favre to Driver
PS... Still hotter than Hades in northern WI. Gees Louise ! Hope all is well with You.
Hey Lemondrop, good thing the injury to Donald Driver is not something overtly serious and he should be ready for the opening day game against the Eagles at Lambeau Field.
Hey BK! Just checkin' in.....can't say I really liked what I saw in the Jags game, but I have to remember some of deez guys are 2nd and 3rd stringers....
Got the opportunity to be in NY on business that night, and went to my NY hangout/Packers home away from home. Kettle of Fish, which is downtown. The owner Patrick, and his wife, Adrian, are the best! Originally from Milwaukee, he knows how to make you feel right at home! A nice pub, totally decked out in green-n-gold, and everything else Wisconsin. Badgers, Brewers, you name it. A must for anyone who happens to be in NY during football season. You'll be missing out if you don't pop in to catch a game. Many of the patrons I've met over the years are either visiting from WI, or have moved to NY from WI. Either way, they know where to go when in town.
Here is a link to an article written on him and the pub from 'onmilwaukee.com' - Kettle of Fish keeps New York's Wis. sports fans connected. Keep up the good work Patrick! See ya the next time I'm in town!

Thanks, We'll keep the Kettle of Fish in mind the next time we're in NY on a Packers game day.
What is really great is that our defense is now starting to play as tough as the actors in the Packer movies you make for each game rather than guys who wouldn't create any fear by asking out my sister.
As one beer lover to another... thanks!
In response to your questions about Tuck and Roll... I actually can't tell ya. But I do know this, Brett is the OLDEST PLAYING QB , we are going to be hammered with all the Paparazzi all year. I, as a Packer Fan am getting tired of that. Let the Gunslinger do his thing this year, (I am glad he is running the helm again) I have seen the pre-season games, and Rodgers, ?sorry, is NOT the Favre replacement. And then Oh Dear, we are back in the cellars like we were pre-Favre. This is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy more fun.
Knock it off you youngins. LOL
I'm starting to believe that Packers backup QB Aaron Rodgers is the second best QB in the NFC North this year. The fun starts when the season starts in GB against the Eagles.

|"Coaches don't make cuts, Players do."|
Green Bay Packers Radio Game Announcer Wayne Larrivee during the Green Bay Jacksonville Thursday night pre-season game after watching Packers backup QB Ingle Martin throw the interception that was returned for Jacksonville touchdown that pretty much capped off the 13-21 loss to the Jaguars.
"Here's the play where we throw the interception."
Packer Palace's BeerScout the moment before the snap of the ball before Packers backup QB Ingle Martin threw the interception that...
"The Packers are going with 2 QB's on their roster this year."
Packer Palace's BeerKid after repeating this over and over in his mind the last few days and now much more convincingly than ever before after watching Packers backup QB Ingle Martin throw an interception...
"If you know what the Packers are going to do, you would think that the Jacksonville defense knows too."
Bears Fan Steve K after listening to BeerKid blurt out that it's a run up the middle during one of the Packers 1st down plays in the 1st quarter of Jaguars Packers preseason game. Implying that I'm a dumbshit and the Packers are predictable. By the way, it was a run between the tackles by rookie RB Brandon Jackson for 1 yard.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists from the upper midwest have demonstrated that if you drink 1 liter of Minnesota Water each day, at the end of the year you would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria found in feces. In other words, you would be consuming 1 kilo of Poop.
However, you do not run that risk when drinking Wisconsin Beer (or Rum, Whiskey, Wine or other liquors) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
Minnesota Water = Poop
Wisconsin Beer = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink Wisconsin Beer and talk stupid, than to drink Minnesota Water and be full of shit.

|Are you like those of us that need constant Green Bay Packers news, all day, all the time, out loud and in stereo? Well then this will be old news to you, but for the rest of you, head on over to the official Packers website, and visit their Packers.Com Recent Audio page for multiple press conferences by GM Ted Thompson and HC Mike McCarthy and plenty of Packers player interviews from the preseason practices. |
Another place that's good for Packers information is Packer Net's WDUZ Radio Replay page where you have 2 shows, Sportsline and Fanline, replayed from the previous day's radio broadcast.
This year, like previous years, I've joined NFL.Com's Field Pass to get the live radio broadcast of the Green Bay Packers (and the rest of the NFL) games. It works out that you get a few hours of live pre-game shows, the game (we've already head to the bar) and then a few hours of post-game shows (when we're back after the game) works out really well. I've gone back many times and delved into the Packers archives and re-listened to past Packers games.
