Watch the replay... The Colts were not offsides on the opening kickoff... It didn't affect the outcome, but how the ref can throw a flag on the opening kickoff without it being a blatant offsides is beyond me... If you have it TiVo'd, freeze it as Vinitieri kicks the ball... No one is offsides...

Not to mention 3 blatant offsides against Houston that the refs didn't even call. You can see thoise on Tivo as well.

Early deficit? Happens all the time. We need to just start kicking the ball out of bounds.

I agree the refs blew some calls, but I am afraid if we don't get this kickoff thing and special teams straightened out it will come back to haunt us someday. They keep saying we have to play with perfection to beat some of these teams and I know no one is ever going to play perfect-but stuff continues to happen continually on STeams. Oh well, I am sure Tony Dungy knows these things much better than I do.

I don't have Tivo, and they did not rerun those plays, so I did not know the refs missed those calls. That gambling NBA ref wasn't working the game, was he?

I wasn't worried when I saw that opening kick returned for a touchdown. I remember a game last year against Chicago when that happened.

That doesn't change the fact that our special teams need help.

You're right. We need to just kick it out of bounds until we figure it out.

Really have a boat for sale? LOL
Funny, two boat companies here in my family. We could help you with that!
