Congrats to Philadelphia and the Eagles. Their coach was so gutsy. The team had to feed off of that confidence.

Loved the interviews afterwards—Blount and Jay Ajayi talking to the sportscasters with their proud mothers by their side, the humility of the coach and QB Foles. And to think he caught a pass for a TD from Florida Gator Trey Burton! Go Gators!

You’ll have to wait one more year New England!

Your missing the point. Nobody is suggesting Belichick is getting fired. Have you not been following what's allegedly been happening, as reported a month ago? A "mistake with personnel"? Your kidding, right?

I'm definitely ready for the end of instant replay. I can tell you that had any other referee been in that game besides Steratore, the Eagles would have come away with two less TDs. Steratore is the one ref who is reluctant to overturn things without blatant evidence.

The replays just make things more vague, not less.

The decision to overturn calls is made upon replay review by the NFL in New York City. So you are just wrong.

Couldn't disagree with you more on his one Bills buddy.

Replay is not the problem. The problem is the NFL for no apparent reason or need decide to complicate what is and isn't a catch. We had replays and high def TVs 8-10 years ago but we didn't have a what is and isn't a catch problem.

If this game was any indication maybe the NFL will get back to how they called catches and replays 10 or so years ago before the Calvin Johnson play.

Count me in as someone who is NOT a fan of instant replay. When it corrects an obvious error, its great but like you said, more often than not its blurring the line of what is and what is not a catch... From everything i have seen the last 3 or 4 years, that Clement catch was not a catch.. the ball clearly moved after the initial catch and 1st foot down.. so that resets the feet.. once he has clear possession, the 2nd foot is clearly on the line.. that one is a head scratcher for sure... and goes against everything we have been told to believe the last 3 or 4 years... Call it a make up call since the Pats have been the beneficiary of some borderline calls of late!

The 2nd TD (ERTZ) IMO was clearly a TD. He caught the ball at the 5 yard line, was clearly a runner.. 2 strides then a dive... TD.. IMO of course, i would NOT have been shocked had they come back and said NO TD... in fact, i would have confirmed to my son that "YEP! the FIX IS IN!"
