I'm tired of seeing 40 yd., game breaking (in many cases) penalties on interference calls that are questionable or somewhat questionable. Most of the interference being committed is not worth anywhere near the yardage it's penalized for.
Good points imo! That gives the refs some middle ground. If there is a bomb, there should be a middle area, rather them forcing a call or no call. The same goes for roughing the passer. Both of those calls were weak imo. The bottom line is that the league wants to see more scoring. Personally, while I like the scoring, I also know it's football and not ballet. A certain amount of contact has to be tolerated, or the integerity of the game will suffer.
Ibar Harry is out to lunch...
lastly, we just plain did not show up yesterday. Yesterday was one of those snowball games, that start with a couple of small negatives, and just snowball out of control before you turn around. I'll chalk it up to the late start and thin air. I really have a good feeling about Indy. Win or lose, we will give them all they can handle imo.
