Lots of grabbing. Looked like the back seat of the car on junior prom night.

Did you by chance see that mugging and blatant hold on Gallette on the final play of the game? That was down right brutal.

Yes I saw that hold clear as day. So blatant. What's the point of having a ref behind the QB if he's not looking at blatant holds like that. Too busy watching Brady in awe instead of doing their job. And that's not me being a homer because I wouldn't be upset if that was called on us because the lineman CLEARLY held on that play...

There we a lot of BS calls in that game....the 4th & 1 where like 4 Pats jumped offside clearly and they called us for false start. BS personal foul on Jenkins who made a clean football hit....

Oh and my favorite...the holding flag they decided to pick up because, and I quote, "There was no holding on the play because the player ran through the hold..." WTF kind of explanation is that. Just cuz he was able to get away from the hold don't mean its NOT a hold!!

I didn't see it until I came on here, but I think at that point in the game the ref is thinking, "I don't want to make a call that's going to influence the outcome of the game" without realizing the previous calls (or lack of) that they've been making that have already influenced the outcome of the game ... .

I firmly believe the refs were allowing the fans/coaches to influence them... They should be at least somewhat unbiased...

I dont know if it was just me but it looked like graham was completely intimidated by talib, jimmy got outmuscled on the line and looked like he didnt show any aggression or any passion to be in that game

If talib is going to jam you on the line, throw that mother to the ground, its within 5 yards so your all good

We don't know how long he was playing injured... He was caught limping long before he finally went to the back.

I think it was just a physical game. We did our fair share of holding and jersey grabbing too. ie. K. Lewis - which was what we saw on TV, but otherwise I saw a lot of draping on receivers. Shame it comes down to ref interpretation to call or not to call it selectively.
