I was hoping when he spun around that he ran himself out of bounds at the 2.


I'm always scared that's going to happen at a critical juncture in a huge game.

I miss the old days when players (Franco\Rocky and others) would score, hand the ball to the ref and jog back to the bench.

This is getting ridiculous. I wonder how many of these replacement refs had money on the 72 AFC championship game?

Why is this team so atrocious at clock management and timeout usage?
