    I'll say the same thing I've told women I've dated - if you go around looking hard enough for something then eventually you'll definitely find something, even if there ain't really that something.

    Not for the NFL.

    How about some actual evidence of malfeasance like a ref betting on the game, getting paid, an insider coming forward. Anything other than just a bad call.

    Dunno and didn't say it was crooked refs or incompetent refs or whatever, the point is the Rams were the beneficiaries of the call and it got them into the SB.

    The NFL has been this way for yrs

    Renfro

    Raiders vs Pats in the 70's.

    Denver comeback when Sean Jones got tackled right in front of the ref on the Broncos GW drive.

    It is what it is, you have to accept it and move on. But I dont kid myself.

    I heard a very interesting take a few weeis back that says there is a zeitgeist in the NFL currently saying that you build a successful defence from the back forwards, great safety play allows shutdown corner play, which gives time for the pass rush to get where it needs to be whilst maintaining gap integrity.

    I wonder if this plays its part in the Texans' Clowney negotiations, they certainly have shown a willingness to pay for safeties of late.

    I wonder what others' thoughts on this are, its a big leap from the old build through the trenches mantra.

    Cincy's 1st round pick has shoulder surgery.

    Try to always remember the bright side. At least you're not a Bengals fan.

    In my opinion depends on the quarterback you're facing. Good player at any position improves the rest. We just need to get and keep as many good players as we can. I am more concerned about coaching this 2019 season than the players we have.

    The problem is that the Texans org limits themselves to the types of good players they are able to acquire.

    Which is why they will never win until they change the way they go about acquiring players.

    It's too much for a FO to overcome with one hand tied behind their backs compared to other successful orgs that don't have these restrictions. Sad thing is as long as the McNair's keep making money hand over fist there won't be much if any changes.
