Last Nights Officiating... - TheGangGreen.com Message Board
Doesn't sound too different from posts here after a loss. I thought MS did get hit in the helmet by a helmet. And two refs taking so long on a call was not a great moment in refereeing.
I'll admit, some things went our way last night. However, many other games it doesnt. So it all evens out in the end
Am I allowed to complain about the BS offensive PI then? That block in the back was more obvious than the OPI.
Pretty standard, our fan base does the same thing at times. Everyone thinks the league hates their team but loves the others. Selective vision.
I don't think anyone here was complaining about the refs after the Browns game. If they were, shame on them.
Think less Browns and more Steelers / Colts.
At least he didn't blame the officiating for the 42 point difference.
and i was debating making a thread applauding the officiating...
honestly if anything i thought the officiating hurt us.
- the strip of sanchez where they whistled the play dead right before we stripped
- there was some other thing i thought that messed up that caused us not to get a turnover... cant remember what
Rewatching the play where the officials had to huddle before deciding that there was no penalty, you could see that Koppen snapped the ball when Brady wasn't expecting it. There wasn't actually any false start -- rather, the rest of the offensive line, which was expecting the snap at the right time (along with Brady), didn't do anything, with the result that a couple of Jets made it into the backfield without much resistance.
One of the officials threw a flag apparently because the whole thing looked so awkward. But there was no violation, so the flag was ruled inadvertent. In a sense the Jets fans have a case (hard to admit), because if the flag hadn't been thrown there would have been at least an incomplete pass on the play, and perhaps a sack.
Once the flag was thrown, though, the correct thing was a do over.
And there was helmet to helmet early on on Sanchez, but it seemed quite inadvertent. Since the play was already moving in another direction, and the helmet was the second guy pulling down Sanchez, I guess the ref didn't see it. Would have been called.
Sanchez also grabbed Cunningham's facemask when avoiding a sack but that wasn't called (I don't know if offensive players are ever called for that, though).
Welker's obvious first down that got a terrible spot and forced us into a punt...
On occasion, but with a QB running for his life they focus on the defender to protect the QB.
Softboiled logs on to bash the Patriots again...are you Steve From Fall River or just a flat out Rats troll? You want a missed call, try this one ,Humpty Dumpty....
Glad someone mentioned this. He didn't just grab the facemask. He held it and torqued so hard he threw Cunningham to the ground. Does anyone out there believe Mark Sanchez can throw Cunningham to the ground with one arm WITHOUT using a facemask? Right in front of the official too.
Want a REALLY bad call that changed a game?
Patriots V Colts
4th & 2.
I think everyone here remembers that one. I know I do.
sancheese hurt his jaw when he was slammed to the ground and helmet/head hit the turf on that play.....watched replay...no direct helmet to helmet.......Tate TD should have been automatically called.....both feet in bounds had full possession.......Gruden said same thing....The block in the back on return WAS a block in the back....doesn't matter how HARD you hit them in the back....you can not do it. Period. Do not know the LT play that the ref was referring to here....but suffice it to say I do not recall anyone referring to big vince as a "dirty player"
Was it just me, or did it seem like Wiflork was out to kill himself a jet?
VW was quite amped up through the whole game. He was either smiling like a kid a Christmas, or giving someone the glare of death, but he was playing HARD.
