10 things to know for Week 15, from NBC SportsTalk

It seems like every Friday I pointed out that, every Friday, NBC SportsTalk (VERSUS, 6:00 p.m. ET) opens with 10 thing to know about the coming NFL weekend.

But I’m not quite sure what else to say.  I mean, how else should I describe the fact that the video appearing after these words consists of a list of 10 things that any NFL fan needs to know.

If you know of a better way to do it, let me know.  Otherwise, you know, click the box with the triangle and enjoy.

    The biggst thing I learned this week was the NFL has a problem with hits and is going to continue to cause fan unrest until they come up with a better idea on how to play football. The fines are all over the place as well as the officials calling the game. 2nd You have players so full of themselves and feel they are so above everyone else that they can sell drugs and for some reason no one knows anything about this. That is hard to believe. I love the game of football but just so much crap going on you almost forget there is only three more games for teams to make the playoffs. 3rd the NFL got more money in contacts and you can see tickets going up in price and they wonder why teams can’t sell out….I don’t think the NFL office gives one cent for fans.

    Ok, for the benefit of the cry-baby do-gooders that are trying to eliminate hitting from football: I will share a few observations of 1 drive (just 1 drive) in last night’s game – the Falcon’s second possession:

    2-12 (8:06): Hawley (61) and Posluszny (51) have a massive helmet-to-helmet collision at the line of scrimmage. It sounded like a rifle shot. No flags. Hmmm… I thought helmet-to-helmet contact was ILLEGAL! Apparently not.

    2-4 (6:18): Owusu-Ansah (41) delivers a forearm shiver to the back of the neck/head of White (84) while he was coming to the ground after making a catch. A clear-cut case of a blow to the head on classic “defenseless receiver”. No flag. Oh, and the game announcers make no comment about it despite watching several replays at different angles.

    If that had been Ryan Clark of the Steelers the field would have been littered with yellow and the announcers would have been emoting outrage.
    My only point is that the stuff everyone cries about the Steelers doing all the time is routine and they are being singled out for special attention.

    refs need better training and the rules will hopefully evolve to a more workable, consistent reliability. but.

    “If that had been Ryan Clark of the Steelers the field would have been littered with yellow and the announcers would have been emoting outrage.

    quit being a little girl. every team thinks they’re getting more flags. in the steelers case because of hits. consistently dirty players who are unable to change with the game will draw more flags. get used to it.

    Whaaaa…. Whaaaa… I’m a Steeler fan and everyone picks on us….

    For good grief… The Raiders have been the victim of bogus calls for 40 years… And the Steelers do just fine with their 12-4 and 11-5 records every year… Quit whining.

    I do not think it is complicated at all. LOOK at the person you are hitting DUH. That will avoid all crown of the helmet hits. If Harrison does not yet get it fine or suspend the coach Tomilson. I bet they will learn fast then.
