Good morning http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-patrick-robinson-jersey , Who Dat Nation. It’s Wednesday. Affectionately known as hump day. The first hump day following the Saints’ NFC Championship loss to the Rams, courtesy of the most ridiculous blown call in the history of the NFL. And I’m still just as angry, sad, and confused as the rest of you. I can still hear the plastic crunch sound of Nickell Robey-Coleman hitting Tommylee Lewis too early and too high. It plays over and over in my head. I will never forget it. But I’m here to urge Saints fans everywhere to get over that hump today. It’s time to let go of certain delusions. Like the delusion that Roger Goodell is going to use his authority and allow a replay of the Saints vs. Rams NFC Championship game, either from the beginning of the game or from the point of the missed call. Mike Florio proposed that as a possibility late Sunday night by referencing Rule 17. He mentions Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1 Thomas Morstead Jersey , which says: “The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game.”He also mentions Rule 17, Section 2, Article 3, which says: “The Commissioner’s powers under this Section 2 include . . . the reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred.”At first glance Cheap Michael Thomas Jersey , this looks very promising. And, of course, the media and social media were all over it. But notice that Florio omitted any reference to Article 2, the one right between Article 1 and Article 3. What does Article 2 say? It says: “The authority and measures provided for in this entire Section 2 do not constitute a protest machinery for NFL clubs to avail themselves of in the event a dispute arises over the result of a game...The Commissioner will not apply authority in cases of complaints by clubs concerning judgmental errors or routine errors of omission by game officials. Games involving such complaints will continue to stand as completed.”In other words, a bad call by the officiating crew, no matter how egregious, is not considered an extraordinary act and does not qualify for any type of intervention from the commissioner provided under Rule 17 Section 2. Period. End of story. The game is over. The results are final. Never mind the fact that the logistics of doing so would be ridiculous and near impossible. I like the work Mike Florio has done over the years. That might be an unpopular opinion. But the truth is Tyeler Davison Jersey , Florio did a disservice to Saints fans everywhere by giving them false hope when he published that article and omitted Section 2 either knowingly or by mistake. Now that we’ve cleared up the Rule 17 myth, I would also like to discuss how ridiculous all of these conspiracy theories are. I think I’ve heard them all over the last few days: the NFL wants the Rams in the Super Bowl to build up their fan base, the NFL wants the Rams in the Super Bowl because they’re in a bigger market, the officials were from Los Angeles, Goodell still has it out for the Saints, yada yada yada. Some of you sound crazier than a drunk vagrant on Bourbon Street.It’s amazing that so many people find it easier to believe there is some elaborate scheme involving multiple layers of collusion extending all the way from the NFL’s highest offices down to the officiating crew instead of the more logical and most-likely conclusion: that referees are human and the referees in the NFC Championship blew it. They just suck, that’s all. Unfortunately Cheap Marcus Williams Jersey , the referee standing at the goal line closest to the now-infamous play had a crappy angle. From his viewpoint, he thought the ball was closer than it was; he thought it was a bang-bang play. He immediately waived it off as incomplete. The second referee behind the play - who looked like he might throw the flag - didn’t have the guts to go against his partner’s initial decision despite possibly believing it was a penalty, and also waived it off. That’s all there is to it. Plain old human error. Saints fans, you have every right to be angry about the officiating, to demand future rules changes so this never happens again, to make so much noise that the NFL is forced to listen. But it’s time to move on from the frivolity: from the silly lawsuits, the unfounded conspiracy theories http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alex-okafor-jersey , the false hopes of a re-match.Return game drawing the watchful eye of Sean Payton during Day 8 of Saints Training Camp Patrick Robinson was recently quoted as saying Sean Payton is a bit nicer, but that doesn’t mean less intense.After being questioned about the return game during yesterday’s media availability Payton was seen keeping a close eye on every return man in the rotation.Brandon Tate (seen below) can be viewed making an impressive over the shoulder grab during punt return drills with Payton standing nearby - No Pressure right?Don’t let Payton’s flighty response fool you.Special Teams improvement (especially the return game) is something he’s been harping on for the last few years.It started with the drafting of Marcus Murphy in 2015, followed by the addition of Tommylee Lewis via a Bill Parcells suggestion.The latest move to draft Boston Scott and the recent signing of Brandon Tate show that Sean Payton is indeed starting to get a little anxious about improvement in that area.Football is a game of hidden yardage and a ton of that starts on special teams!Practice Observations 1st round pick Marcus Davenport did not practice but was seen in attendance.That’s good news people as New Orleans will likely err on the side of caution.Michael Thomas did what Michael Thomas does beating Marshon Lattimore on a fade route from the slot position.Offense rebounded nicely today vs the Saints defense at one point scoring 3 TD’s on 4 attempts during the first portion red-zone drills.Mitchell Loewen sighting with a sack during team period.Defense made plays of it’s own with an A.J. Klein INT among that number.If we don’t know anything we know that things have been competitive between the Saints offense and defense so far through TC and that type of energy has been known to breed winning teams during the Sean Payton era.
