Outside of the weather and protecting Drew... this is what scres the **** out of me

I am listening to the local sports talk channel here, 94 WYSP. The announcers are literally admitting that the Eagles CB's get flagged for PI, but that they hope this game is not decided by the refs. Basically they start advocating for no PI calls even though they admit the tendency of their CB's to do this.

So that I can read between the lines, if I may:

Do not call legit PI call because this is the playoffs and you should be allowed to do that

That scares the **** out of me because it is what I fear will be allowed. It is something I have never been able to stand about the NFL. Called one way during the season and in the playoffs called another.

Anyone else worried our WR's will be mauled all night and not get a call?

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

How is that any different than the regular season?

The Saints are flagged for borderline things, but the flags are sewed to the refs pocket when the opposing team does it.

As long as the game is called the same on both sides, I'm okay with it...

The minute they start calling it in favor of either team, that's when I get frustrated...

The field is going to be slippery. I fear that we will be at a severe disadvantage. We don't do cutbacks well.

I would hope not. They covered it, right? 25 degrees or so... should keep from being bad, right???

What I hated about the regular season... Was the flag would be thrown in our favor, say like a PI on Graham. After a short conference, the flag would be picked up with a "No foul on the play" as the explanation

I can explain that, Mitch. That's called the Goodell effect

Yeah, I am about 20 minutes outside the city and an it will be during game time. You going to the game boss or are you in this area. Enjoy the game, stay warm! Keep your toes, ears, and fingers warm. All else will be fine
