Angry They need to put dresses on the QB's

Guess that is the only way to keep them from getting hurt. The call for roughing the passer was unbelievable. He grabbed his shoe for crying out loud and the QB didn't even move. If I was going to get called for roughing then I would have sure made him pay. What was the call anyway, diving for QB's knees? I wonder what Ben thought after taking what he had taken this year and not getting any calls his way.

that was unbelivable the nfl has turned to a soft side..... holdin on to some1s leg? c'mon that isnt a penalty. if a qb is scared of some1 holding his ankle then he should pack-up and stay home from the field.... thats my thoughts....

That was just a horrendous call and even more so, as they conveniently didn't see the two shots Ben took to his noggin in the second half. The officiating gets worse every season.

I can now officially say I've seen it all......15 yards for pulling down his socks........and he was still standing.

Yep, that was a unreal call. I kept waiting for the play to continue and see Smith pull him down or do something "rough". Even Brees looked confused. He just reached down and pulled his sock up like nothing was wrong.

Agreed. Just like they didn't see the Saints offensive player (I forget who it was) move early, but they saw the Steelers D jump in response to his movement. Officials can't see everything, but lately it seems like they can't see much. Not complaining, just MHO.

I can agree with this. It seems like I could remember a small handful of bad calls over the entire season that bothered me. Now, it is a few in every game.

Brees' sock gets tugged down and Ben gets a concussion from 2 (two) helmet-to-helmet hits.

You know we're in bizarro world when the first of these two is the only one that gets Roughing. However, we overcame today.
