    There are those that are hard working people and then there's the paycheck collectors.

    He does make some ridiculous plays though. Him spinning out of a sandwich tackle just isn’t natural. It was his first playoff win in the pros so agree he needs to do
    A lot more, and who can argue his college resume? He was the first to dethrone satan and the tide so he’ll always be special in my mind

    Win a couple of championships. I love Watson but honestly if a call or two would not have went against Buffalo yesterday he still would be winless in the playoffs.

    Hope to God he and his guys beat Kansas City next week as so tired of media and fans crowning Mahomes as the greatest. I think NFL teams are starting to figure out Mahomes what some of the media don’t realize is this guy has more weapons than anybody I’ve ever seen.

    I get that but they doubled down on it when they said that's why Dabo said it. Also couldnt stomach the mini Clemson promo with his college clips right after but that is purely the Gator fanatic in me.

    The no delay of game, with the play reviewed was the worst. How can you miss that? How does the umpire miss it in the first place? There is a GIANT clock directly behind the offensive line.

    There was a 7-second span in the third quarter in which Booger shut up. I celebrated with a cigar on the porch.

    The NFL rule on "blindside" blocks is based on the direction the blocking player is moving and where he is on the field, and has nothing to do with how hard the contact is or whether the blocked player sees it coming:

    ARTICLE 7. BLINDSIDE BLOCK. It is a foul if a player initiates a block when his path is toward or parallel to his own end line and makes forcible contact to his opponent with his helmet, forearm, or shoulder. Note: A player may initiate forcible contact in an area between the offensive tackles and three yards on either side of the line of scrimmage (until the ball leaves that area), but is still subject to the restrictions for crackback and “peel back” blocks.​

    Ford initiated a block with his forearm and shoulder while moving toward his own goal line after the ball had left the tackle box, which is a penalty as the rule is written. Dean Blandino gave a good take on it, which is that it's a foul based on the way the rule was written, but that it isn't something that was intended to be included within the rule.
    (Mike Pereira goes down the road of trying to parse what is and isn't "forcible" contact, which is not a great argument)

    Probably because Delay of Game is the Back Judge's responsibility.

    There is a play clock at the other end of the field too. Both officials can see the clock and the snap at the same time.

    You can say the rule all you want but I’m Pyers/referees have some discretion and this one in this big of a game was a horrible call. Delay of game miss=brutal.

    If "common sense" applied to the non TD on the second half kickoff, it could have been applied here too.

    What a name "booger" it grosses me out just typing it. Was he picked on as a youth? Was he a snot nosed kid? Was "ear wax" taken?
