I saw Chris Mortonson in ESPN saying it's not likely that the rule will be changed. The problem is the refs were recently pressured to blow the whistle early, in general, to cut down on injuries that occur late in plays. I guess we should expect more of these kinds of calls in the future. The rule would probably only get changed if a blown call like this happens in a conference championship or Super Bowl.
To me, the bottom line is, what happened on the field? On the field, Cutler clearly fumbled and the ball was clearly recovered by San Diego's D. I can see the argument that once a whistle is blown, players let up and the end results may not be what they would have been had the players near the ball not heard the whistle. But in this case the early whistle had no effect at all on how the play went down, there wasn't a Bronco within 5 yards of the ball when "Hock" blew it.
I'm just pissed because I had the Chargers plus 1. Far as I'm concerned, that money was stolen from me. And when I add up my totals at the end of the season, I'm counting it as a win.:-)
Anyway, my kneepads are colored aqua and orange. And there's nothing anybody can say to hurt a Dolphins fan that hasn't already been said a million times. We're all pretty much resigned to abother crap season. If they go 4-12 we'll be thrilled.(On the bright side, now that Goodell wants to increase the season to 18 games, the undefeated '72 Fins will likely be toasting champagne every year until the last one finally kicks off.)
One more thing. In my Yahoo Fantasy league, that receiver from Cincy is listed as Chad Ocho Cinco.
Looks like at least someone is taking it seriously.
Later.
my knee pads are obviously pewter and red...and no worries...tampa will still be lifting champagne every season till someone goes winless.
(0-14)
believe me...i know what it is like to have your team dogged year after year...being a tampa fan for life has been rough...but i refuse to give up...i guess that is what being a fan is all about. a couple of the espn guys have been mentioning a change on the "early whistle" thing, that they will become reviewable under certain circumstances (cutler fumble) in the next season...maybe... something i will be watching

First off, if it wasn't for a bonehead call by Brian Billick, opting for a FG and OT on 4th and goal at the one instead of letting McGahee (The U) punch it in, we could have had BOTH records!

Second, now that I have TB specialist on the line, I gotta ask, I need a bye week fill in QB for week 4, and Gruden just named Griese his starter. I don't expect much from him on the road against Chicago's D this week, but he's back home against Green Bay next week. I'm thinking maybe they get down big early then have to play catchup, which means they'll have to air it out.

It's either Griese or Edwards in Buffalo, who faces St. Louis, one of the worst pass defences in the league, in week 4.

I'm flipping a coin unless you've got any hometown insider insight.

my wife, who has too many fantasy teams to mention...she says to look in the roster to see if any other qb's are available...if not and all you have to choose from is griese and edwards,,,,she say's go with edwards over st louis d, she isn't dogging greise...she is just saying that edwards has a better chance against st louis's d, that greise does against green bay's d....i would personally wait to see how griese does against chicago's d first...a tough road win can really boost a qb's confidence... i personally feel we seem to do better at home...but i would wait a week to see how he handles chicago before making the call on this one....my wife is the "fantasy" nut....so any advice i give you...comes from her...and her w/l record is impressive. i should have her talk directly to you....she is amazing dude..i dunno how i got lucky enough to have a wife....THAT LOVES FOOTBALL!!!! no arguing over tv on game nights,,,how nice is that?

I wish I had the luxury of waiting, but this is a competitive league, 12 teams and a 16-man roster, so the tendency is to pull the string early, lest you get shut out. And if I don't grab a QB this week, my only option is to hope Griese sucks so bad they go back to Garcia for week 4. And the rest of my team isn't strong enough that it would survive without QB points. So I'm going with Edwards.

LOL. For most of us, it's "to have and to hold, love and cherish, honor and obey, for richer or poorer, through sickness and health, etc.*EXCEPT* for Sunday afternoons, Monday nights and the occasional Thursday night." You need to hold on to this woman like your life depends on it!
