Hey guys,

End of the year is fast approaching, which means, from an editorial standpoint, it's time to review the worst beats of the season.

We're going to be putting together a story on it in the next week or so and we'd love to get some suggestions.

We know bad beats can be hard to forget. Well now you get to put those shitty memories to good use.

Let's keep this thread going and see if your game gets picked as the worst beat of 2011.

giants vs saints 2H.  saints run ingram (inexplicably with 50 seconds left?) instead of a kneel and saints go on to cover 2H.  i'm almost positive the giants didn't have any timeouts left...

So your brother or whoever won the bet, but it's a bad beat? I'm confused.

I would consider that game a bad beat for me. Only TD in the game thrown on a hail mary at the end of the half that's caught on a fluke play where ball gets knocked out of one Bears defender's hand from a teammate, right into the receiver's hand? Gimme a break.

That play doesn't happen the Bears probably win the game, though not sure if they'd have covered. I had them tied up in a few ML parlays so that freak play cost me big-time.

I would also put the P. Rivers fumble at KC in this category. Would've been at least a push for me if he handles the snap and they kick a chip shot FG. We all know what happened next.

Olindo Mare missing a 31 yard fg for my over against the Vikings hurt.  I had a 4 game parlay perfect except for that miss!!

Sorry to see this one here, I loaded big time on Miss St. on this game...I'm glad someone has to be on the lucky side.

I had the Patroits at +7 to complete a 3-team 10-point teaser against the Steelers.  The Pats scored a TD to make the score 23-17.  The Pats then got the ball back at their own 20 with one play left.  Brady drops back then gets stripped of the ball by Keisel I believe.  Instead of Pittsburgh just jumping on the ball Polumalu punches for no reason not 5 yards but 20 flippin yards into the endzone.  The Steelers then recovered the ball for a safety on an illegal play to win the game 25-17.  The refs did not overturn the play and cost me my Pats +7 teaser.  I think this was a gross beat because it didn't even happen on a football play.

JacksonVille/Cincy Game Week#5 Spread Cincy-1.5 I had Jacksonville +7.5 in teaser

I had Jacksonville to cloase out to team 6 pt teaser. They were up 20-16 with 8:24 left. Cincy took the lead 23-20 with 1:56 left. Jacksonville rcvd the punt ran two plays and fumbled on 3rd down with 1:16 left. Cincy got the ball back ran straight up the middle 4 times and turned the ball over to Jacsonville with 7 seconds left. So I get the ball back with 7 seconds on the 14yd line. Below is what then happened, and realize all this needed to happen for me to lose. I've watched football a long time and can't remember a team throwing back 37 yds on the last play.

1-10-JAC 14 (:07) (Shotgun) 11-B.Gabbert pass short right to 83-J.Hill to JAC 27 for 13 yards. Lateral to 80-M.Thomas to JAC 34 for 7 yards. FUMBLES, recovered by JAC-32-M.Jones-Drew at JAC 37. 32-M.Jones-Drew to JAC 36 for -1 yards. FUMBLES, recovered by JAC-87-J.Dillard at JAC 21. 87-J.Dillard to JAC 13 for -8 yards. Lateral to 11-B.Gabbert to JAC 12 for -1 yards (27-G.Wilson). FUMBLES (27-G.Wilson), RECOVERED by CIN-97-G.Atkins at JAC 10. 97-G.Atkins for 10 yards, TOUCHDOWN.

Baltimore -9 @ Jacksonville, Week 7

Looked like the Ravens were on a roll but this Jaguars team has a killer defense. Jacksonville beat them in a low-scoring game, 12-7.

Other game I lost was New Orleans -13 @ St Louis. Week 8

NFL stat that got thrown around was that the team that scored 60+ points had a losing record in the following game. Of course, I learned that after the fact.

Halloween Night , 

San Diego , when they were in position to win and bettors getting a WIN or PUSH , depends on their line.Rivers fumbling the snap ,and the Broncos go into OT and WIN the game,

This would be a BAD BEAT

Ah bad beats. I gotcha now.

The game above would qualify as one of the worst. Except it was SD @ KC. No more Chargers bets for me.

Teased Philly/NE under just last week, Andy Reid down by multiple TDs calls 2 timeouts and Vince Young goes 88 yards in 1:20 to score a meaningless TD and cost me 8800. Yea, fuck fat Andy Reid.

Omg that south Carolina vs miss St is one of the worst, there was no need to run for a safety when clock already got to 0, I'm still pissed about that when I hear about it

Yup, I remember this one. I had the Chiefs and I remember being scared to death on the ensuing possession. Cassel got picked off and it looked like the SD CB could return it to the house but couldn't stay inbounds. Crazy, crazy game.
