Anyone see my boy Khalil Mack in the Buffalo/Ohio State game today?

He NEEDS to be on the Giants radar come April

God forbid we attribute ANNNNYTHING to luck it's an affront to football for us to do that! How dare we!?

It's both amusing and sad because so many grown adults do it and they're 100% serious

I don't even know what to say about this other than
No. The "Anyone who watches..." type argument is just what one uses when almost every single stat proves them wrong and they have nothing to fall back on except their opinion.

And, as there is no such skill as "being clutch" I am certainly not going to try to prove it.

It's not a small factor. That's the purpose of playing long seasons in sports and having playoff series as opposed to one game when possible. To try and minimize the effect luck has on a season by trying to have a larger sample of games played as opposed to just one. In any given game it plays a decently sized role (I think in general more so in hockey than baseball than football than basketball) but long term it's lessened.

Once again you are playing the role of pot without even realizing it. I love how you are doing the same exact thing you are whining about me doing and don't even realize it.

I have plenty of interceptions and blown chances to fall back on. All you have are some stats. Again, it's obvious to anyone who watches the game that Romo is not a clutch player. You can even tell it when he is making plays. The guy does not have the composure in a close game in the 4th quarter. He never has. Some guys just don't have it.

Believe what you want. I'm not even a Romo hater. I think the guy is tough as nails and I really like his general attitude. However, he's just not a clutch player.

It doesn't matter if I am. Am I wrong about you> What is your motivation in this discussion? Why so upset?

YOUR opinion about a simple game is WRROOOONG. It's laughable, maaaaaan! They didn't need any luck b/c they're the greatest! Bah! Discredit you! You discredit yourself! Hmmph! Go back to hockey you just don't know football!

And you can't see why I'm raising my eyebrows at you?

Hey, I had season tickets as a kid. As a kid, you don't generally have abject hate towards a sports team. I've never considered the Devils to be the "Red Sox" to our Rangers, anyway. That's the Islanders. The Devils, to me, would be more like how Yankees fans must feel about the Mets.

Just a reminder, folks, that this thread isn't necessary to have, on our part. There's a football forum here, on page two. Keep that in mind before attacking each other in this thread if you wish to continue football talk with your fellow Ranger fans.

Any of you guys using Gamepass?

In NHL Gamecenter you can change feeds to get the broadcast you want. Now Gamepass has the same feature, but it only changes the audio feed, while keeping the same video. This messes up the audio/video sync and the announcers are either behind or ahead of the play.

Anyone know a fix or workaround for this?

That first hit the Bucs got flagged for was a terrible call IMHO. The second one was a bit closer to what I think the NFL wants to keep out of the game.

Flipping back and forth between Jets/Bills right now. Can't wait for G-men later

Good luck, Jets fans

Chiefs playing well so far. It's Jacksonville, but it's still enjoyable.
