Default Incompetent Referees

How long can Goodell keep overlooking the horrific referreeing?

There were far too many examples of missed or incorrect calls yesterday.

That is NO EXCUSE for being beat, just a worried fan wondering if anything will be done to correct the problem.

Harrison was getting held all night.

throughout the year, i've thought the officiating was terrible. One thing that started to become blatantly obvious to me was that i've realized the referee's are catering to the league office, almost as if in fear of "holding on to their jobs", not unlike many jobs in the real world.
An example? Pass interference calls, How do you not make the call and then seconds after, when a receiver jumps up and down, gyrates all over, and starts screaming, do you THEN reach in your pocket and throw a flag? I"ve seen this happen on numerous plays league-wide. You're not your own man and you can't make your own calls?

That said....i try not to go to that place of "oh, it was the refs..", "the refs suck..", etc sort of whining.
BUT. Last night was downright criminal. I thought that after the game was over that the referee team should be arrested by the authorities and haulef off to the nearest Denver jail. It WAS really bad officiating last night.

No he's not. His style (running low to the ground) when he tries to go around the DE makes it look like he's held, but he's not. I watched very carefully last night and there was no holding.

also....as far as Goodell goes as you mention....this is only the beginning, if you ask me. Its WHAT HE WANTS.
He wants the league and officiating to cater to the offenses and if there's bordeline calls on the defense...i think the officiating crews have been clearly told to MAKE the calls against the defense.
Sad, yes....but i believe it to be absolutely true.

I will agree with you on this one.

I don't buy the "harrison's being held argument". There were many, many other instances though, on the team that should have been called in our favor, but were never called.
In one instance, i can't recall the play or who, but our guy was cuffed, held, then thrown to the ground....i saw it happen...then on replay (while Simms and Nantz discussed a different part of the play but never mentioning this...). No flag.

They had two hands on his jersey all day! Yes he is!

The other thing. Taylor is an average CB!! He would get beat all day if not for the bltiz scheme that doesn't allow the QB to throw the ball in 3 seconds... most games.

2 hands on the jersey ain't a holding as long as they're on the chest and they push, which is exactly what happened.

Ike Taylor didn't play well, that's obvious, but there was no pressure on Tebow whatsoever and Taylor didn't get any help either. Don't forget that Deymarius Thomas was the 1st WR taken in the 2010 draft. There was a good reason for that. He's a beast and on single coverage, he'll beat most CBs in the League.

Ref's didn't lose the game. If your not going to get the call, change the schemes. We didnt blitz harrison or woodley up the middle once that would stop any holding as the hole would be there.

Taylor sucks, I cant post enough about that, lol.

Now Thomas is great?lol Come on, sure after Ike made him look great.

Thomas isn't great! Ike is just that average. He can't play 1 on 1!

I never said refs "lost" the game for us. It's not on the refs. The fact that Tebow look like Tom Brady lost the game! He couldn't throw for 200 yards all season, and throws for 300 against the Steelers!
