    Re: My thoughts from the land of the DVR.



    Been awhile, Stinger, but as always, we agree pretty much 100%. Even stink thought they stunk yesterday. I'm definitely worried.

    Hey esmd! How's it going? I would have caught up with you on the Sunspot board but for some inexplicable reason that the board admins could never really explain, I am on some sort of perma-ignore. I still don't know why. Oh well.

    Re: My thoughts from the land of the DVR.

    Between the Steeler trolls and the hometown fans from the shallow end of the gene pool, you're not missing much. I get more and more tempted with each passing week to take up permanent residence here. Only reason I stick around there at all is because of a few longtime posters that I really respect and enjoy conversing with. Although many of them aren't posting as much, either.

    Oh man, bring them HERE!!!

    If we had some of those guys over here, it would really make it easier for those of us here who try to keep the conversations normal and intelligent easier. I remember some of the good ones over there like Beau, GOTA, Eastside Terp, and DColeman.

    Tell 'em to come on over. Yeah, you can see we have our share of nitwits too, but it's not nearly as bad as here and Scout. And no old19fan.

    From Ray Lewis' eyes he sees Carson throw the ball. He turns to make a play. He see's Chad Johnson jump up. What is he supposed to do? Bow down on one knee and say a prayer Chad doesn't catch it. Pause time like Zack Morris, check to see how high the ball is thrown, then call a "time in" and give Chad a hug? Are you people serious? Hell I've trolled other boards and even STEELER FANS are defending the hit. In a split second Ray see's a pass about to be completed, there's is no way in HELL he can look to see if that ball is overthrown, especially when Chad jumps to try and make the catch. I don't think some of you understand a) the speed of the game and b) the intensity of Ray Lewis can't be turned on/off whenever the NFL decides to enact a new rule to help bolster the offensive side of the ball.

    Show me when it has ever been legal in the NFL to hit a WR coming down from his jump AND when the ball is 12 feet out of reach. Last time I checked, it has never been legal to hit a receiver with no ball, 2-3 seconds after the ball has gone by and out of reach.

    The ONLY people saying that was a clean, legal hit are a few kool-aid drinkers on these boards.

    Me, and the other people on this board who live on Earth, agree with Harbs and others who understand it was an ill timed penalty by a usually consistent LB.

    Come on. You're not being serious here. It's not like the ball was coming near Chad's fingertips. Even Ray Lewis in full speed would have been able to see the ball was clearly WAY over Chad's head.

    Even Ray knew the hit wasn't right. You could see it in his face after it happened.

    I'm getting tired of some of you know-it-alls trying to tell us what we do and don't understand about the game of Football. It was a bad hit and a poor-ly timed penalty and everyone knows it. Get over yourself.

    Speaking of Ray.

    Why did he not get dressed in the locker room and talk to the media?

    Instead he has someone get all of his stuff, dresses in the training room, and bolts out without talking to anyone.

    You know me. I am his biggest supporter and I was even wondering this one.

    That's just his way after he screws up.

    Im kind of used to it by now.

    It's common sense. You think when Ray Lewis is looking to hit Chad Johnson he has superman vision and can tell from his angle the ball is too high? 12 feet is a huge exaggeration and you people know it. The ball was maybe two-three feet high, and last I checked Chad is an athletic WR. If Chad doesn't jump you have an argument, but Ray had more than enough reason to believe a catch was about to be made.

    Did you guys cry this much when he hit Kellen Winslow to cause a C-Mac INT last year? Or when he nailed that Broncos player who obviously wasn't going to make a play on C-Mac during that FG return for a TD? He didn't have to hit him that hard, right? Or what about when he destroyed Laverneous Coles over the middle in 2004 during the Skins game on a ball that probably wouldn't have been caught either? Or what about when he nailed that Bucs player trying to catch a pass over the middle in 2006? That pass was a little low IIRC.

    Bottom line - that is the way Ray Lewis has been playing this game for 13 years now, and nothing is going to change that. If you want to be mad at anyone be mad at the NFL for these two hand touch rules.

    p.s. I'm tired of Ravens fans accusing everyone of drinking the kool aid when their opinion favors the team. Get over yourselves.

    The ball was uncatchable. The rules now have sissyfied the game, but rules are rules.

    All those other instances you pointed out...either the ball had hit the WR's hands, or it was before the "defenseless player" rules were put into affect about 2 years ago or so. I said before...that hit Sunday would have been on one of the NFL's "Greatest Hits" tapes 10-15 years ago. Now, rules like that (I even hate that lame "Hines Ward" rule) and the QB roughing calls have basically made the NFL into a sissified game. But it is what it is

    It is what it is...and players are going to have to adjust or they will continue to get penalties

    Re: My thoughts from the land of the DVR.

    It was a penalty, nothing is going to change that, personally after watching it again Ray seen the ball thrown, seen Chad jump, Ray lowered his head and applied a hit, if his Helmet doesn't fly 20 yards down the field then maybe it's not a flag but come on guys I think Football has turned to pussified BS too, but if you are a Ref and the rules have changed and you see a WR helmet go flying down field you would throw the flag. I don't think it was Ray's fault he was just playing the game he was just unlucky because the ball was thrown way behind Chad and Ray had already committed to making the hit and didn't see the ball and couldn't pull back. I do think this is something the Ref's need to account for before throwing the flag, because if a defender commits to making a hit and lowers his head he obviously can't see the ball and can't turn back, Chad's momentum also was carrying him into the Hit, it was just the whole Helmet thing.
    Yes it sucks, but just unlucky.

    Not that RIW didn't already beat me to it, but you couldn't have been more incorrect about this. That ball was not 3 feet high. If you think that, you have no business telling other people what they do and don't understand.

    If Chad doesn't jump you have an argument, but Ray had more than enough reason to believe a catch was about to be made.
    Again, you are so wrong on this its not funny.

    Did you guys cry this much when he hit Kellen Winslow to cause a C-Mac INT last year? Or when he nailed that Broncos player who obviously wasn't going to make a play on C-Mac during that FG return for a TD? He didn't have to hit him that hard, right?

    See, now you are just trying to throw bullshit in the air and hope people don't see through it. As RIW again beat me to, you know good and well those were completely different situations and legal hits on good plays. For you to suggest ANY of those plays you listed is the same as this past Sunday's, is intellectually dishonest.


    p.s. I'm tired of Ravens fans accusing everyone of drinking the kool aid when their opinion favors the team. Get over yourselves.
    Nice try slick. You went with the "you don't understand the game" BS. So don't try to turn it into something else.
