Default Offensive Pass Interference

Hello, Vike fan here. Good game, I hope we have home field if we play again as this looked like a good matchup.

On to my rant:

I've noticed several steeler fan's here and elsewhere mentioning a 'questionable' call on the Santonio Holmes TD called back because of O pass interference by Heath Miller. I think those in the group who are mad at the call don't understand the rule. Picks or rubs are a crafty way to create openings and they are subtly used by most teams in the NFL. That said, it is illegal to interfere with the coverage in this way and if you get caught, you now know what happens. Heath Miller flat out pancaked the coverage on Santonio and he got caught.

Now, about 'the trip'. I'll wait until I see someone here agree with the call until I give my opinion on it. *crickets*

That said, I think the Steelers took the ref advantage today en route to pulling out the win, thoughts?

Here is your fuel for rebuttal:

Thanks!

Sure, it was the refs that caused 2 turnovers by Favre that were both taken back 70+ yards.

And if you think Miller trying to run his route was a pick, you're blind.

I saw a pick play and the refs did too. He _was running his route but the refs werent buying what your O coordinator was selling.

ps. Can I expect friendly discussion from other forum members or should I find another board now?

What I saw was a no call on blatent holding during Harvin's run back. I'm tired of people questioning Steelers wins because of calls, yet no one ever mentions when we don't get calls. We won, game over.

Yep, and I saw a block in the back that wasn't called on Harvin's kickoff return, but I bet you didn't.

If you came here to whine about the officiating, yes, please move along.

ive been telling my viking fan friends that the 4 redzone trips MN had that only produced 10 points is way more to worry about than the tripping call. if the vikes score a td on that one play, why cant they do it again? good teams overcome bad calls. instead they respond with a strip sack that gets returned for a td.

and to the tripping call, the guy dove at Harrisons knees, Harrison jumps, the TE's legs go in the air. thats what the ref saw, and that can be construed as a tripping call. so quoting the rulebook works in our favor as well.

thats my 2cents on the matter. and the Vikes are in pretty good position for the rest of the year. focus on whats left, not whats done.

I could start telling you about each time I yelled at the TV for a call I thought the refs missed too but I don't think that would be very productive. I believe that calls are 'missed' in every NFL game played.

Anyway, I created this post to talk about how I thought the OPI call on Heath was good (and after looking at the replay once during the broadcast I think you can see that on film). Maybe I shouldn't mentioned have the tripping.
