    Reminiscent of those guys we have all met in our work lives who have clearly been groomed by senior management... they come in, spend a year in the trenches, and then every year after that is a new promotion. The kind of jerk-offs that feel entitled by rank to lord over all the actual experts and professionals in their field. But I digress.

    And no, I don't have a source for the 50% figure. It's anecdotal. When his little talking head pops up throughout the course of a game to "consult" on whether a call will be overturned or not, he's gotten the final call right about half the time and wrong about half the time.

    I could certainly be wrong about the replay thing but it certainly seemed that McCarthy got an incredibly lucky break. The rule needs to go anyhow, but he got lucky.
    Even more reason to take his word over yours...he is infinitely more qualified than any of us, and you just seem to be stuck on the fact that he was a side official for one season...meanwhile for what...10 years ALL officials reported to him
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I don't share your disdain of RG3.

    I thinks he's a phenom and well worthy of the praise he's receiving.

    I want the Skins to win so bad just so the media will shut up about Tony Room.

    Between Romo and RG3, I don't know who the media loves more. Ideally, they'd both be sitting at home but since the Giants fucked that up....

    Romo has to be the biggest choke artist in NFL history.
