Major blunder by replacement officials in San Diego

In Week Two (so far), the crew in San Diego has made an even bigger mistake.

On a pass to Cowboys receiver Andre Holmes, Chargers safety Eric Weddle applied an illegal helmet-to-helmet hit. The ball bounced around and Chargers linebacker Donald Butler came up with the interception before it hit the ground.

Following yet another extended discussion after the play, the officials gave the ball to San Diego and marked off the personal foul against the Chargers for the illegal hit. The correct move, as anyone who pays attention to NFL football knows, would have been to wipe out the interception, give the ball back to the Cowboys, and mark off the penalty against the Chargers from the previous spot.

Re: Major blunder by replacement officials in San Diego

I saw a BUNCH of really bad, uncalled, holding in that Panthers/Jets game last night. And I am actually one of those "there is holding on every play in the NFL, get over it" type of guys! But this was just the Panthers committing ridiculous amounts of holding, and getting first down after first down from it.

Re: Major blunder by replacement officials in San Diego

The Graham PI in the endzone ...that said it all to me. The ref was right there starring straight at the push to the head on Graham. I understand incidental contact but that was a blatant push to the head. Stole a TD from us then the defender is doing a dance in the endzone. Gotta make those calls.

Re: Major blunder by replacement officials in San Diego

The refs are not gonna give Graham anything this year, especially in the end zone. You can pretty much book it. They don't like the dunk.
