Greer and Drew Got Mugged

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Did anyone else see the pushoff by Roddy White on the long pass? How about the helmet to helmet on Drew? It made the hit on Manning look like a love tap. No penalty, but the DL that hit Drew ...

Greer and Drew Got Mugged

Did anyone else see the pushoff by Roddy White on the long pass?

How about the helmet to helmet on Drew? It made the hit on Manning look like a love tap. No penalty, but the DL that hit Drew will be fined.

Agree on both.

Blatant push off.

Agreed. LOTS of non calls.

There looked like there was a hold on Turner's big run to the right that helped him get around the corner.

OL had his hand around our guy and was grabbing the back of his jersey.

Re: Greer and Drew Got Mugged

Damn ... see what an aggressive pass rush does, the only way they could stop it was to hold on every play. I turned to my fiance at one point and said, if they don't want to get called for holding then they better start grabbing for the inside of the shoulder pads cause they need to stop grabbing our ends buy their necks

Yeah it was bad. Listening to Falcon fans talk about how one-sided it was for us is simply laughable. Sad we had to use a challenge on that dropped TD pass when the ref was standing right there staring right at it.

You gotta be kidding me!

Apparently when forward momentum of a player is stopped, and he's sitting on the ground, and the refs don't blow a whistle, you can rip the ball out his hands and wave your hands that posession goes your way... and that was the rule in that game... IN FAVOR OF THE FALCONS!

Also, why can the Falcon's coaching staff walk 15 yards onto the field to LOBBY refs for calls etc.? Aren't their sideline rules?
