Was not roughing the passer against Indy befire the half. Because it was Brady, it was called. Inconsistency again….
Not roughing the passer in the 3rd quarter either. Guess only 1 QB on this field gets that call.
Should that have been a interference call on Josh Cribb’s muffed fair catch in the 1st qtr?
The muffed fair catch rule says:
“Item 3: Muff. After a valid fair-catch signal, the opportunity to catch a kick does not end if the ball is
muffed. The player who signaled for a fair catch must have a reasonable opportunity to catch the
muffed ball before it hits the ground without interference by members of the kicking team, and
regardless of whether the ball strikes another player or an official. ”
The ball never hit the ground, the defensive player caught the ball in the air.
The same thing happened in the Texans Titans game in 2009 and the Titans were flagged for interference.
I get tired of that- if it’s roughing then call it all the time not do boarderline and phantom calls for certain all star QB’s.
The officials handle the balls a lot during the game. Did any of the balls feel a bit deflated?
