Better ready yourself, Officials are ahhuuugh!!!!

If I listened to my Misses one more time about how horrible the officiating was in that game I think im gonna scream. " It's like there scared to make calls" she said. What's supremely funny about this is that she's 100% right. If a females naked eye can see these officials can't call games I wonder what the coaches are saying. Here were some of the gaffs.

- Houstons first possession went for a touchdown, but only after there drive was extended by a horrible pass interference on Scott Shanle.

- Jimmy Graham was mugged by a LB in the end zone, no call.

- illegal touching? Im guessing he ment illegal formation. Wade Phillips was even puzzled.

If you saw anymore that I missed you can put them here, but these were the most noticeable to me.

Every call required a huddle up of some kind causing the game to be extremely long. Ahhhhhhhhhh

At least every team has to deal with them... Almost like we get the bottom of the barrel refs every game though

I keep blaming the bad calls on the replacement guys and then remember that we get hosed equally by the regulars so not much difference. Anytime I'm at a game and Ed Hochuli walks out as the head referee, I know we're in for a long night.

I forgot where I heard this but it was flippin hilarious. They need to have a monster sized Hochuli poster in every stadium telling the refs to "Do there job"!!

My friend and I thought the refs were going for some sort of record for "Illegal Touching" calls in one game, seriously, I think they called it as much tonight as it was called all last season.

Actually, that was one of the few accurate calls. Jimmy was covered by the wide out when the ball was snapped. He was an ineligible receiver on the play. What I didn't understand was why it wasn't offsetting penalties. They ignored the ineligible receiver call and gave us 15 and a 1st down on a personal foul.

That was so weird... it should have been off setting. What they did was deduct 5 yards for the illegal formation call and then gave only gave us 10 on the personal foul call.

Now over the past few years the refs and stuck and we complained and complained.

Now they really suck, lol.

They can't get the calls right because they aren't using the NFL rule book. These guys still need training before they can be in a game.
