He has guns!
But his crew through the most penalties, so it was expected (and that the Pats seemed to be making mental mistakes)
I usually like Ed..but I do know this..the Packers got a way with A TON of holding by that O line.
Hochuli's crew is usually pretty fair, I don't know what happened last night to change that (EDIT: Forgot that the Omish was at the game) but it was a little one sided. The 15 yarder on McCourty was clearly a perfectly legal hit with his upper arm and shoulder hitting the receiver dead center in the chest, and the illegal hands to the face on TBC was clearly crap as well.
The team didn't play thier best game, and the officiating didn't help. Glad they are a good enough team to overcome.
illegal hands to the face was crap considering the olineman had tully buy the facemask.
It seemed on every down a Greenbay lineman had an arm hooked around the neck of a Pats d-lineman.
Thought Hochuli was playing to Goodell, rather than reffing the game.. too many delays before calls were made, felt he was indecisive...
Usually like him, but last night he and his crew missed a lot of Green Bay penalties and overcalled penalties on the Pats...
this guy just blows. he needs to retire now. What a horrible game of officiating
BB said it himself- of all the crews, his crew has issued the most number of penalties.
What does that mean? He calls a close game. It did seem to me that the Pats were victimized more than GB.
I just don't think hes very good. I still remember the call vs SD two years ago that gave the game to Denver.
Terrible performance by Hochuli's crew. At no point did I think it was a balanced and objective game by the referees.
I have no issue of the bad calls go both ways. They clearly favored the Packers last night.
Jay Cutler's 'incomplete pass' That was a wonderful call
They say Kraft is is very influlential in the league. But I don't see him throwing his weight around when compared to cronies like naPolian or stinky Fisher.
Do you think they don't notice these things from their perch ?
My perception is that Kraft stays out of these types of discussions and leaves them to the football people.
Vince was getting his jersey pulled off almost every play. I was upset with the officiating crew last night, but when they called TBC for hands to the face, when he was the one on the receiving end of it, I lost all respect for that crew..... the little that was left after calling unnecessary roughness on McCourty's perfect, textbook hit anyway.
Ed Hochuli is like some people i can't stand "those who love to hear themselves talk". I was so glad when the crowd Booed on his explanation last night...i certainly didn't want to hear him. No Referee should bring that much attension to themselves. Referee Ed Hochuli is a Media whore like Brett Favre...that call on Tully Banta Cane which could have decided game, was absolute BS...9 out of 10 Referees don't make that call. If we had lost that game last night i gurantee that there would be a 15 page thread up and going about Ed Hochuli.
I havent had an issue with to much officiating in pats games all year....until last night. Bad call on Mccourty for sure.
At least it wasn't Mike Carey. Dude didn't have the balls to throw a flag for holding on Eli "Great Escape".
I don't really complain about officiating to much, but last night pissed me off. What has happened to Hochuli anyway? He never used to be this bad.
I am so glad the boos came through on the TV. He was literally getting booed off the field. That was the worst one-sided officiating I have ever seen. We are lucky to have escaped with a win. Usually his dumb calls go both ways. Not last night. No one in the crowd even knew why the Merriweather INT didn't count; unlike all his other long winded non-sensical explanations, he said something quick and suddenly the D was lining up again. We were all like W.T.F.? Hopefully we don't see this guy again, especially in the playoffs. We were playing against ourselves, Green Bay, and the refs last night. When you look at it that way, I guess we were lucky to win, considering we had 3 opponents!
What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. And we didn't let Hochuli kill us last night
i agree if Goodell, was not there i think half of that stuff would not have been called
