Kirk Cousins frustrated with grounding call officials apparently got wrong

Hopefully at the bottom of the apology letter from the league there is a note telling Cousins that if his defense had stopped the Saints from scoring 15 points in 5 minutes it wouldn't matter if the refs got a penalty wrong!

Re: Kirk Cousins frustrated with grounding call officials apparently got wrong

I read a bunch of the comments. I like the one where the guy says "the team the NFL wanted to win, won.". Lol. Like it's all a big conspiracy. Lol. Some of the comments are hilarious. The fact the Saints we're unstoppable in the final 3 drives is the reason the Saints won. End of story.

We are no strangers to bad calls, bad plays or bad commissioners.

Multiple no calls on Thomas, they held him every time the ball was in the air.

Well to be quite honest, to me as a foreigner it seems like believing in conspiracy theories is the new great American pastime.

Re: Kirk Cousins frustrated with grounding call officials apparently got wrong

Are we talking old school rules or the new lets generate as many points rules in the NFL?

Old school? The WR was to far away from the throw to justify a missed route. Even if the QB and the WR were on the same page the ball was too high to be caught.

new school? media driven BS

Re: Kirk Cousins frustrated with grounding call officials apparently got wrong

To me it looked like the edge defender on the blind side may have beat his blocker, and Cousins threw it away. No, there was not a defender barreling down on him at that point. To remove all doubt, Cousins should have sailed it out of bounds around the 30 yard line (receiver in area), or spike the ball at the feet of the running back that was standing right in front of him. IMO Cousins panicked and could have made a better decision. Was it a bad call, probably, but could have made a better decision so a bad call would not have been made.
