  1. why aren’t the officials calling the holds,you cant go that long twice official#19 failed to make the call right in front of him

  2. On the two handed push off by Cobb on the Hail Mary TD catch, the referee was looking up at the ball not watching the players in front of him. That’s improper technique.

  3. so what happened when #88 made the catch at 12 min mark about ,even the announcers notice the pick which is illegal, then the next play a questionable fumble , and hochuli articulates the call to make it so no review to be done, BS, they were not even concerned montegomery was down . Even Buck calling the game sounds Packer favored.

  4. clearly Apple cant cover people 4 big plays , between special team receivers screwing up returns , and crummy calls when the holding is so blatant like the Cobb TD at 31pts, the giants are done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank u Eli Apple ……

  5. Rene, you’re correct. This “all star” crew has been missing calls left and right. I think they just want to go home.

  6. Interception in end zone at end of game should have resulted in touchback, as the intercepting player’s teammate was standing OOB and made contact with him.

  7. Its’ just a matter of time before a player is seriously hurt or killed due to a late of a targeting rule in the NFL. The biggest offender are the Steelers and the officials and the league continue to look the other way for ratings. Follow the $$$$.

  8. Rough game for the officials in this game. The missed facemask, missed penalty on the Jordy play, missed delay of game, and missed holding calls offset the good calls that were made. Clearly, the “allstar crew” concept was another failure this weekend.

  9. Only referee Ed Hochuli has the power to over rule the 2 minute warning! LOL! CBS was heading to commercial, the clock was at 2:00 to go in the half, and Ed makes them put four seconds back on and the Giants run another play. Great stuff (I could not hear over the noise in the room where I was watching the game but I assume one of the teams had called a time out and Hochuli was just correcting the clock). But it looked funny from where I was sitting and knowing Eddie, it all just sort of made sense. Who else but Eddie would (or could) overpower CBS and going to TV commercials? Well done Eddie! Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you!
