they get opening kick.

Uphill battle.

Not impossible if:

WR catches TD pass
QB hits open TE for TD pass.
Huff who sucks, for once doesn't suck.
Ertz ascends to a higher level than LJ Smith
Our S catches an INT.
Our OL blocks
Our supposedly HOF LT plays like a starting caliber OT.

I am praying to every god to give me the chance to go through this fucking torture one more week.

These garbage refs have been garbage all year. Garbage!

I'd blame the refs for ruling the deep ball to Cooper incomplete, when he had control of the ball all the way to the ground.

The Ertz fumble could have been called either way, and the numerous flags were just the usual numerous bone-headed penalties that we have specialised in this year.

That Cooper call was a travesty. I have no idea how they could call that incomplete. And the Ertz call was essentially the same play and it's a fumble? The only difference between the two were the steps taken Coop took, but he still made the "football move."

In the long run it really didn't matter. This team lacks the OL and the coaching. I'm sorry, but too many of these players just don't look mentally tough enough for the NFL and I put that on coaching and/or personnel selection.

The Cooper call was actually correct.....and consistent with the same ruling they gave on Dez Bryant......it was the bobble as he rolled over...the ball came out and touched the ground....dumb rule but that is what they call.....it is control through the ground contact.

True.

And the worst starting WR in the league loses a tie!

Kind of surprised people are defending Cooper or calling that a catch. It was unquestionably not, based on how they have been ruling those plays.

If you want to argue with the rule, fine. But within the confines of it, Cooper dropped it (and sucks).
