What really bothered me is how bad the officiating was.

At the beginning of the game it looked like it was going to be one sided, like the Bears were paying off the officials but as it turned out they were just BAD!!!

And instead of giving Sproles the hit out of bounds to compensate for the bull**** roughing the passer, they just moved the ball a yard or two to give him the first...

Yes!!! It was awful, on both sides. How did the Sproles TD count?? They totally blew that one, as I thought they were supposed to review ALL scoring play. Refs seriously need to be fined just like the players...and it needs to be publicized!! Not to mention the clean hit on Cutler by Harper. I think Alaska touched on this during the game time chat...the calls they are making to protect from injuries is having an adverse affect on the game.

As bad a game as I can recall. Those in the chat room know I was miffed.

The thing is, the refs are doing what the league instructs them to do. Harper made a textbook tackle - nothing overly aggressive or malicious or even remotely close.

I respect that the league wants safety, but teams should be able to review those kinds of calls. It was complete horse **** and could have easily cost us the game.

I mean how do you pull back from a tackle once your head is tucked under the armpit of the quarterback and you both are airborne?

If he unloaded the ball, clearly, before you made contact I could see it, but that flag was unwarranted.

Later in the game Drew gets ridden to the ground but unloads during the ride and no flag? Just be consistent.

If they lighten this up too much it will seriously diminish the game of football.

There was a communications malfunction according to Peter King. The extra point was kicked and it was too late. Good for us I guess. Also calls tend to even out over the course of a game, even BS ones.

Not sure why, but it has been like that across the league all year, officiating has declined horribly this year.
