Default Flag Not Thrown

Not sure if this has been posted...but...apparently...the Refs agree now...they should have called holding on the 4th down play against the Jags in the playoffs.

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08093/869712-66.stm

Posted the entire article, but this is in the guts of it:

"Playoff flag that wasn't thrown
Mike Pereira, the NFL's head of officiating, admitted yesterday that his crew working the Steelers-Jaguars playoff game erred in not calling a holding penalty against Jacksonville on a crucial play that allowed the Jaguars to kick the winning field goal.

Quarterback David Garrard scrambled on fourth-and-2 from the Steelers 43 and made the first down. Three plays later, Josh Scobee kicked a field goal, giving the Jaguars a 31-29 victory. Several Steelers players complained there was blatant holding on Garrard's run. Nearly three months later, Pereira agreed with them.

Tomlin declined to comment on Pereira's admission."

Which is exactly what he should have done.

Well that's good that they acknowledged that they missed the call.

Oh well, you get some calls you lose some. I'm not going to be a "cryhawk." We gave up way too many plays earlier in that game. As much as I hate to say it, I don't think we would have beaten the Colts, Chargers or Paricheats. We just didn't have it at the end of the year. Too poor of O'line play and too many key injuries elsewhere were our undoing.

Yeah, not much you can do after the fact. Its hopefully a learning tool for the refs.

I can see a lot of missed calls on the inside and as a guy that coaches O line, I expect holding in the interior.

But that hold on Khalif Barnes was out in space and blatant on Harrison. The ref should be singled out for missing that and it should reflect on his grading and ability to ref on future playoff crews.
