Props to Sarah Thomas and Ron Torbert for attempting to diffuse the Scott Edwards/Jason Garrett fiasco. Both were true professionals.
Another bad (non call) on the Steelers that essentially gave the Ravens the tie and then eventual win! Another game changing call that favors the Steeler opponent at critical times in the game. I believe Walt Anderson needs to retire! His sneaking flag throw after Mason Rudolph was knocked unconscious was disgusting and speaks to his lack iof sharpness! Earl Thomas launched with his helmet. I would be surprised to hear if he is NOT fined!
To clarify, the non call that WAS called was the roughing the passer on #92! It was a clean tackle and would have resulted in a 3rd and 17! Much harder to convert! The Ravens could have converted and this is a non subject, but we’ll never know! I believe whst another commentator said, it was the #92, poor old Walt thought it was James Harrison!
@Chris Mursch So you’re mad that the officials got the call right? I’d call that bravery rather than incompetence.
I’ve had my teammates bail me out several times on a call. The key is to get it right, it doesn’t matter how. When Gene Steratore used his notepad to determine a first down, yes it wasn’t proper procedure, but it was the right call. I’m sure Gene would do it again if he could.
