Some Packers Were Expecting a Second Overtime

Some people still don’t know the NFL overtime rules, apparently. Some of those guys play for the Green Bay Packers.

Robert Klemko reported that tight end Andrew Quarless was among the guys who thought there would be a second overtime after the Packers ended the first overtime tied with the Minnesota Vikings yesterday.

Whoops.

It seems pretty amazing that guys who play football professionally don’t know how overtime works in the NFL. Then again, this seems to happen every time a game ends in a tie.

It happened last year when the Rams and 49ers played to a tie. It happened in 2008, when then Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb admitted he didn’t know a game could end in a tie.

So let’s get this straight everyone. There’s only one overtime in the NFL. If you’re tied at the end of it, that’s it.

    I think the Vikings thought the same thing cause why with time running out would you punt the ball on 4th down? They had enough time to run one more play and try to win the game.

      Because a loss of downs would have put the Packers in field goal range. There was 7 seconds left.

      Amazingly, Patterson seemed aware of the fair catch kick rule; he was doing a kicking motion with his foot and waving his hand in the air to the sideline.

    When Andrew Quarless says: “I thought we was gonna…….”. That pretty much tells me everything i need to know.

    Mccarthy probably didnt know, hes too fucking stupid.

    I heard Quarless on the radio after the game, just another stupid Negro who can barely spell his name, making millions playing football. Gee wonder how he got into and through college?

    Quarless can also kiss Packer Nations ass and fuck off, his joke of an attempt of a block on Allen on the 3rd and goal play in OT cost us the football game (well the win).

      Idk man, even if that’s true about Quarless’ blocking, and I don’t doubt that it is, Boykin was WIDE open on a quick slant over the middle. Flynn should have gone with that throw instead of forcing a tough throw to Jordy. If you want to single out stupid black people that’s your business, but athletes are usually not scholars. It’s not like Aaron Hernandez or Michael Phelps are the sharpest tools in the shed either. Athletes spend time practicing athletics, not grammar or public speaking. Expecting them to be eloquent is like expecting a teacher or politician to have success in professional sports. Also, if you’re making millions per year, who gives a shit if you can’t put two words together.

    i’d point out that the confusion comes because in the playoffs they go until the game ends. still pretty stupid that pros dont understand though

    “I thought we was gonna…”

    Fucking.
    Puke.

    Much like his blocking, which is more akin to a grope.

      “judging people”

      “people” is plural; only talking about Quarless here, a “person” — that pesky grammar thing again?

      based on his speech, he sounds like an idiot.

      based on his lack of knowledge *of the rules governing his profession* he sounds like an idiot.

      based on an average of two catches and less than 20 yards of production since starting for Finley…
      …is it so far-fetched that all of this is related?

      …and that he’s not so much a solution, as he is a problem??

      and if you have a problem with me forming an opinion or estimation after careful consideration — ie: “judging” — then you should re-focus your “laugh-ass-off” scrutiny on yourself, as you’re quite judgmental as well.

        It seems pretty amazing that a bunch of grown men who attended division one schools don’t know how to use correct tenses when speaking the only language they’ve known for 20 years.

        • chucks

          It’s called a dialect, so it’s not really the language a lot of these guys grew up with and it’s not the language they speak with their friends and family. For these guys, learning to speak the “white” way is just as hard as it is for white bread suburban people to learn to speak the “black” way. The grammar is totally different.

        1) It’s called induction (inductive reasoning).
        2) You’ve judged my and others’ grammar in the past, so
        pt. 1 is moot.
        3) You’re judging my grammar currently-score 1 for the
        self-fulfilling prophecy.
        3a) Uh, you wanna check the grammar of your
        recrimination, perhaps?
        4) GTFO, you’s a silly muhfukka, Happy Thanksgiving you
        crazy cantankerous coot.

      It’s the Golden Rule, baby, I don’t act like a dick towards someone unless they act like one towards another; shouldn’t act like a dick at all, true, but it’s just too fun watching dicks get riled up by others treating them like the dicks they dick, er I mean are. So many dicks in that sentence, it’s like a screenplay for Oz.
