    Anyone know what kind of referee he is? Is his crew fair, etc?

    I don't think it matters who the crew is anymore. If we are up in the 2nd half in a crucial primetime game, calls are going to go the other team's way.

    You know what? If they are able to pull out a victory anyway I kinda hope it goes down that way. Nothing is worse than the Pats getting a call late in the game and that's ALL the media can talk about the next week. A perfect scenario would be to slow down that Saint's offense to like 17 or 20 points even with them benefiting from a couple terrible calls late in the game... and sealing the deal by stepping up and taking the ball away. Not saying that will happen.. but it'd be nice! :D

    Oh quit it with the whining. If the Pats play a good game, one or two penalties should not kill them.

    Is it possible to laugh somberly? :(

    I'm sort of in TC's camp - all the SB winning teams had to overcome crap calls, did they not?

    Here's a more recent listing: Referee Chat Blog: NFL Referee Statistics Before Week 10 (through Week 9, 11/9/09)

    Looks like Morelli is a little below average in number of penalties called, about average in number of yards. The home team wins 63% of the time in his games.

    Where was I whining? I never said the penalties are the reason the Pats lost or may lose tonight.

    That PI in the Colts game was a ratings call, no other way to look at it. Butler barely breathed on the guy. That doesn't mean the Patriots shouldn't have been able to get 10 yards in 4 plays on the next drive. Where you get off making replies like that I have no idea.
