They call it flopping! LOL The problem is it has to be called and Fitz will always get the breaks. Ratings baby, Ratings!

Fitzgerald must've learned from the bonafide king of pushoffs, Jerry Rice. Remember that guy?

The reason the "fumble vs. interception" distinction is important is because roughing the passer can be called to negate an interception, but once a fumble has occurred, all bets are off with the QB and roughing.

I like Fitz, but if I see him pulling that push off crap against our guys I'll be steamed if he gets away with it. Especially if they call an OPI on us at some point during the game.
Yeah thats BS. They should made the call.

Please no acting in football. That what soccer is for.

I kind of know what you mean, but really hope we don't resort to trying to get an Oscar. Coming from England, I see so much acting and diving in soccer it has turned me off the game. Remember when we played the Giants and they had a pass interference call aginst them when Colston was brought down? It was a bad call as contact was incidental and minimal. Even Colston, when he saw the replay on the big screen, shook his head at it. By the way, I'm also not liking the flag throwing dramatics of some of the players now. I know it is frustrating but it seems more and more players are resorting to this. Regardless of whether it influences the official's decision, which I don't believe it does the majority of the time, it just seems petulant.

Re: Larry Fitzgerald push-offs

All I know, whatever the call, the majority of them will be called against the Saints. The refs, as always, will call more penalties on the Saints. We are going to have to play smarter than the dead birds...uh, I mean the red birds.
