Can anyone think of something worse?

 

Calvin Johnson's "no catch" call at the back of the endzone after taking 50 steps with  clear control of the football.

I know the Saints got robbed, but I don't care. I'm just glad I don't have to be rooting for Payton if the Pats win. I remember last year when Payton threw a big hissyfit on the officials when he told them we should be penalized for intentional grounding. The refs gave him his wish. Never liked him since. Glad to see him on the miserable side of it this time. And of course the big Brees sideline extravaganza we had to put up with this year. Back at ya Saints fans. Glad to see the better Sean head to the SB.

Hahaha Sean Payton still going on about the no call and saying that's why they lost the game. 

 

No man, I think the rest of the game mattered too. They even won the coin toss. 

They lost. If the refs make the obvious correct call, it's about 99.9% the Saints win. 

 

So yes, the refs cost them the game. Period.

This!!!!  The refs missed a big penalty, but Brees and th rest of the Saints could have done other things in the game to not put it in the refs hands.

The refs robbed them of an easy path to victory.

 

Their defense letting go of another six points and Brees throwing an uncharacteristic panic pick cost them the game altogether.

Immaculate reception... it touched the ground.

Now if the Chiefs make it, both teams can say they wouldn't be there without the help of the Redskins.

This isn't friggin trigonometry, man. The refs didn't make a call they have to make and thus the Saints lost the game. Anything else you're saying is just spin.

Maybe.  I think he had better protection though.  It seemed like the Saints d was always struggling to get to him.

I am not a fan of blindly deferring, especially with an ace offense. At home, and in cold weather.

 

Here comes ice cold Mahomes....

Impressive when you think about it. McVay was damn near our water boy like 6-7 years ago. Now he's the mf'n man.

 

 

It's also sad. Very sad. Forgot that part.

I don't feel bad for the Saints  for that call, but they STILL had the lead and let the Rams tie it in regulation, then turned it over in OT.  The Rams were resilient in the face of adversity, the Saints werent.

Let's actually see if Mahomes is a legit winner now.  

The pats are smart.  Romo is right.  The Dbs will play super tight and force refs to keep calling holding.

He already is. You can't fake 50 TD's..... In your inaugural season. Tough task going against the Master Vampire in Brady himself.

Also if mcvay goes for it on the goal line the game is probably over then. Stop crying, Saints! You got your SB.

Offensive wunderkind aside, I'm more impressed with the coaching acumen that kept his team mentally in the game, on the road, down 13 in the first half, 10 in the 3rd, and down 3 with under 2 minutes.  THAT is coaching. A lot of guys can scheme up Xs and Os and call plays.

The non PI call, I think the refs were trying to let the players decide the game.  I think the Saints got a gift INT in OT to make up for it.
