    Playoff Game One: Old School Football

    So there you have the first game, two veteran coaches, teams playing mostly mistake free, playoff style football, and players making plays to win.

    How quiet did that seem, no raving coaches, no trash talking start to finish, no micking TD celebrations, nothing but old time class that has been the NFL trademark.

    Now we get to cotrast that to the circus that's going on tonight, where they have coaches that encourage mouthy attitude and semi illegal, or even really illegal play to win.

    It's fitting that it's set in a stadium designed to be an advantage, to cause more noise to hit the field from the same number of screaming fans as any stadium, all to gain home field advantage. A trick of achitecture if you will.

    At least with all that din, you can't hear what those loutish Seahawk and Niner players are saying after every sungle play.

    It disgusts me, and i hope the flags start flying early and often to stifle the nonsense before it festers.

    Some attitude after a big sack or pick is one thing, but doing it after a five yard reception or a tackle for a three yard gain gets old really quick.

    On the field, during plays, it's gonna be great to watch stuff, but as soon a sthe whistle goes, these fools ruin it by yapping endlessly, and worse.

    It only took the younger teams one play as Wilson fumbles on the first play.

    The most disgraceful thing about the NFC game was the panicky QB play.Both defenses are excellent but there were more rookie-ish moments than you'd expect- I'm thinking of Krap's 2nd (?) INT which was absurd - straight to the DB- and any one of Wilson's throwaways which could have been grounding. You'd think a guy who scrambles that much would have that down by now.

    The weight of excessive expectations/hype ?

    You do realize the the cheatingest coach in NFL history was in the first game, right?

    At least with all that din, you can't hear what those loutish Seahawk and Niner players are saying after every single play.

    It disgusts me, and i hope the flags start flying early and often to stifle the nonsense before it festers. [QUOTE]

    History also shows that this wish is the biggest of pipe dreams. Only small market teams like the RAMS get held back by the refs in such antics.

    And based on the way the officials have allowed the hags, niners, and Kittes to do this all year, I don't see it ending any time soon.
