We see those hits all the time though... LOOK this comes down to the NFL and the direction it wants to go down, or is headed down.

Either they call ALL of them a penalty or let them play and stop calling them.

I can't tell you how many times we saw defenders knock the block off of Reggie Bush when he played for us and no one said a word other that "Oooo"

Clean hit!! If he went lower he would have flipped him and his head bounced off the ground, any higher he could have really did damage to his neck {kind of like whip lash or worse}, the reciver was lucky he got hit where he was hit, also what does the defender let him do, catch the ball, I think not.

I'm reminded of the 1st Falcon game this year...

From the 1st game...

2. Phantom PI call on Tracy Porter which sustained a Falcons drive late in the game. The slightest possible nudge as Porter is covering the pass play? Really? That's Pass Interference?

3. Lance Moore was clearly hooked and pushed by the Falcon defender prior to the ball getting there, so the ref throws the flag, then the other refs come over to have a powwow and take back the flag? WTF???

HORRIBLE OFFICIATING! When is something going to be done about this????

I'm pleased with the outcome but the game was a mess and I think the officials have it in for us this year. Is the NFL rigged?
Yes, officiating is a problem, and we've been getting hosed all season.

I was thinkin' last night wasn't too bad. We still got our obligatory roughing the passer call, but other than that.... I bet the Clowns forums are crying about it though.

Considering the refs didn't flag Wheatherspoon for 15 after he speared Lance Moore when he clearly went down to the ground with an injury and did not attempt to get up, or didn't call roughing the passer when whoever that was wanted to take Drew's helmet as a souvenir on that sack, etc, let's call it even.
