Default Officiating for the Jags game was questionable.

The late hit on Harrison in the 2nd half was the same as Groves hit on Ben in the first. Both were clean.

The "taunting" call on Washington, looked to be a reaction to a Jaguars coach on the sideline motioning that his catch was incomplete. Nate got caught on the reaction.

Clark clearly got pushed in the back by the Jags RB on a blitz. Woodley got tackled from behind on a pass rush after beating the TE.

The final 2 plays of the game, Khalif Barnes flagrantly had his arm across Harrison's neck and was grabbing him by the shoulder pad as Silverback had beaten him......both without holding calls.

Lots of penalties, but man they missed a lot more.

Like our D-linemen being practically tackled on every play by their OL? To hell with it - we won.

We won and that's all that matters - good teams overcome the refs.


But on another note, Khalif Barnes gets away with more holding than any lineman I can think of - I was so glad to see him actually get flagged.

Sorry guys...

I find it interesting that every week, we have so many questions about the officiating... but we NEVER question calls that go our way.

Clark's hit on the receiver was a good call. It doesn't matter if the ball was or was not tipped, if the receiver is defenseless, you can't not tee off on him. Clark did. It was his fault.

The PI call? Ike brought his hand down on the shoulder pads of the receiver, making contact and POSSIBLY stopping a diving catching... Because it was POSSIBLE, however much it wasn't likely, that call needs to be made.

Yeah, the refs blew a couple calls, a nice holding that wasn't called, the unsportsmen like conduct on Harrison was wrong.

But I think we are getting a little too carried away blaming the refs for bad calls... when really, our players are making some foolish mistakes.

Like the taunting penalty on Washigton. You KNOW you cannot taunt the other team... that SAME penalty was called on Washington's DB a few minutes before. He KNEW that those penalites were being called. He should have shut up. Don't blame the refs. That was his fault. Period.

It really was awful, I completely agree. I don't like to complain about officiating, because what comes around goes around, but there isn't any excuse for 15 yard penalties over such incidental stuff. The Harrison hit had me seeing red, and like the commentator said, that isn't called 80% of the time. The taunting penalty was laughable.

Yeah, moving on, I'm just thankful they got the W.

I agreed with all of those against us, actually. My beef was with the holding they got away with on a consistent basis. I realize you can call holding on just about every play in the NFL, but when guys are pretty much being tackled, c'mon already.

Yeah...

in the game thread, I mentioned that too... That was one they were getting away with, seems pretty consistently most teams get away with holding off the edges.

Reminded me of the Wild Card game. At least when Barnes was called for holding Al Michaels said to Steeler fans its 10 months late.

I can agree with the taunting penalties, but the two calls you speak of above, I have to completely disagree with.

How many times have we seen Ward get hit like that without any calls being made? It's part of the game that is being pussified more and more each passing year.

I think the PI call is close, but should not have been called because I don't even think a diving catch would have been possible. The ball was way overthrown. Good defense in my book.

But hey, like it's been said before: Great teams overcome bad calls.
