Let’s not get carried away in your praise of the officials.
They let a play occur when they flagged a false start. They missed the catch by Woods … and then the moron in the NYC office “confirmed” the bad call. Whitworth lined up in the backfield at least 3 times. There was a phantom holding against the Rams center which negated a huge run by Gurley, and the Rams could not afford to be taken off track. And … the call on Robey Coleman for unnecessary roughness in the first quarter was ridiculous.
The crew did an acceptable job. But, there were some lapses.
And, why was Belichick so hot at the guys on the sideline at the end of the game on the last Patriots drive? Belichick is not a every play whiner – a la Marv Levy or Don Shula. He only complains when he thinks something is very wrong and if he loses his cool in that manner … there was a bad mistake made by the officials. My suspicion is he felt the officials coached McVay on declining the penalties.
Knowledge – you obviously don’t know what you are talking about and only stirring up trouble. Go ahead if it makes you feel better.
There are those that will complain about anything and everything.
I barely noticed the refs. My only question was the defenseless receiver call, but I can see that going both ways.
