Default our receivers are horrible "actors"

Ok...lets just get this out there because we all know its true. If that last play of the game is a GB Packers play, 50-50 (probably greater) chance thats called for pass interference. Actually, c'mon....80-20 thats called.
It was a good call, but in the end, really, it could have gone either way.

If thats a GB receiver, a NE receiver, Terrell Owens, or C.O, they immediately jump up like someone lit a firecracker under their ass, jump up and down in the air 6 feet high, and furiously point at the receiver. Then what happens? More oft than not, ref throws the flag.
Our receivers kind of just stand up, and jog back to the line of scrimmage. I think our receiving corp needs some acting lessons that the other receivers in the league have already figured out works.
Certain teams like NE are very good at this and i think some coaches out there know this works as well.

We had plenty of oppurtunities to get the job done on our own. Ben puts that throw on target, Wallaces catches it, and no need for a "ghost PI call". Football should be about execution, not acting. I applaud our receivers for not looking like aholes.

i would agree with that...i was just pointing out that other teams are using this to great success and they're have been a bunch of REALLY borderline calls along the way that could have, and should have, gone our way.

If we need to rely on officiating to win us games, we are a poor team.

Agreed... this is the kind of stuff that teams like Baltimore complain about and then scheme for.

Default Re: our receivers are horrible "actors"

maybe i should "clarify" this post more.
There have been plenty of calls not made this year and our receivers didn't do a good job of bringing this front and center, right after the play.
I'm not looking for "phantom calls", just for our receivers to take lessons from NE, etc. I've noticed this does make a difference (unfortunately).....see our game with Cincy just as one example. TO and CO both used this to their advantage on borderline calls that could have went our way or their way. It went their way.

Our WR was no where near getting touched and if it were an identical, that flag wouldn't get thrown either way.

They weren't good actors because it wasn't pass interference. A great play by the Green Bay defense. Where the F*ck is Heath Miller in that situation?! Did we run one slant? Didn't think so.
