NFL: Crucial hit on Brett Favre during NFC Championship Game should've been flagged - ESPN


Maybe they're trying to get Favre to not retire by this. Otherwise, you had an experienced ref looking directly at the incident, and there was no contact below the knee.

I'm very disappointed with this call. The NFL should have supported their ref on this one and not suggest that the games outcome should have been different. The hit did not cause the mistake. REversing the mistake would have been a double bail out.

But then, the NFL loves bailouts...

And a couple of other "crucial hits" should not have been flagged.

I give the refs a C- for calling the game as far as the quality of officiating, but an A- for consistency.

Vikings fans need to get over it. Don't turn the ball over 5 times and you would have won. PERIOD.

Re: NFL would have flagged High Low hit...BS

There will be a meeting prior to the game where the officials will meet and discuss their priority list and what to look for. I have no doubt that eagle eyes will surround Manning, and Brees for that matter, and ANY post release contact, kinetic or intentional, may bring an infraction. The mere heightening of the officials scrutiny in this area will cause flags to fly and possibly change the dynamic and outcome of the game. Its really a shame. I'm still waiting for a QB to pump fake a D-lineman into submission and then make a play only because the guy started pulling-up to avoid a whimpy flag.

Re: NFL would have flagged High Low hit...BS

It was a penalty that wasn't called but the whole game was poorly called. I hate the "if that's called the Vikings probably win" crap. The game is over and the Saints are going to the Superbowl.

With the havoc that McCray is creating, questionable or not, it seems apparent that the Saints have employed the wrong DE all year in Grant.

Re: NFL would have flagged High Low hit...BS

Don't know how they can say it should have been called, the lineman pushed McCray in the back as he came around the end and he was falling to the ground when he hit Farve. The pads were still above the knee. And what about the play when Allen tackled Brees and rolled him over by the ankles.
