Is Officiating this season ruining the NFL?

Is Officiating this season ruining the NFL?

We see our defense is terrible, 2 games running already.

But I cant help but think after the poor play, the Saints should of still won those games, each loss has been attributed to some type of big foul up on the officiating.

Last week we saw 14 points put on the board Vs Washington due to 1 non call, and 1 stupid call.

Both involving Roman Harper, in which we saw no flag thrown on holding which prevented Harper from making a play on Garcon, and then the 2nd one was PI on Harper in the end zone. Final Score: 40-32 for a difference of a full TD of 6 pts when you see 14 gifted to Washington.


FFWD

This week we got Scam Newton, and what do I see? about 3 plays in the game where Intentional Grounding was never called.

2 of them was throwing the ball to the side lines still in the pocket but ball never reached the LOS. I cant remember the other one, but I think it was in the same way but he threw it into the ground.

OH.........But they call Drew Brees for it when he at least had a eligible WR in the area.

Then you got the bogus PI called for Steve Smith running into Robinson.......So Robinson gets called for it.

What was point swing? Its a guessing game, but you can believe 14 of their points was handed to them.

Final score............35-27 for a difference of 8 pts.




This is just 2 of the Saints games played, this garbage is going in every NFL game, the only ones who really got no right to complain is the ones dominating the scoreboard and winning by 21+ pts.

Oddly enough, seems you need to be winning by 21+ pts to make up for the Officiating.

If our defense forced someone to punt once in a while then this wouldn't even be an issue, but we can't even force a 3 and out, never mind a turnover

Terrible calls in the Rams game when Jackson had a TD not called.
Terrible call that Vick fumbled when it was a obvious pass in the last two mins aswell,luckily it was rechecked in the booth and overturned.


So under the Commissar we have had a player and officials lock out.
The sooner they lock him out the bettet

Defense is doing us no favors.

But its the idea in the end, officiating can be looked at as to why we lost when you see how many pts its put up for the opposing team.

Can't blame these two losses on the refs. We are not playing good ball.

I think we could have had pop warner ref's and still would have lost. Defense 's system/personnel is new, overall effort is weak, there is no fire, no sense of urgency. What we need is a good Payton tirade, not better ref's.

The first loss against the 'skins, we had some questionable calls. The only time Harper has ever had spot on coverage and he gets called for a phantom PI

But every team is having to deal with these refs, so it's really not fair to blame them for a loss...

Nope. Officials have always made bad calls, it's just that the replacement refs are under the microscope by everyone and their mistakes are magnified. Remember the coin toss flop when everyone on TV heard what the call was but the ref still got it wrong. Can't blame everything on the replacements. yes they are making mistakes but the real ones did too.
