    NFL exec: Ref erred with foul call in Texans-Chargers

    The rest is here...
    LINK

    All I know is the retired ref Chris Berman brought on board said it was a judgement call and the official was within his rights to call it as he saw it.

    So there.

    Of course, if I was a Charger fan, I'd be livid right about now.

    Big deal. We drive down the field and score a TD to win at the end of the game instead of settling for a field goal. Same score. :kitten:

    Meh - if we only got the field goal, we would have won the game with a TD rather than running the clock down for Bullock.

    Edit: Doh...beaten to it by paycheck

    Bad calls are made every week in the NFL. We got one called for us this week. Next week it may go the other way. I wouldn't put a lot of significance on it. Most bad calls are not game changers except in the minds of fans.

    The Chargers got away with a false start on a pass that got them near the end zone where they eventually scored. Tit for tat.

    Chargers got away with:

    An illegal pick on a TD (flag was picked up after Rivers yelled at them)
    Several holds and hands to the face of JJ Watt
    Delay of game by 3 seconds
    At least one false start
    AJ's catch that was ruled out of bounds

    I'd say it was even.

    I agree with everything accept the bolded.

    AJ was clearly out of bounds - he left his feet to make the catch and his elbow was the first thing to come down .... in the white.

    Thought so.

    They can't be making game-changing mistakes like that. Just wrong.

    At the time the "bad call" was made there was I believe 14:52 left in the fourth quarter/game. That's relevant because for the remainder of that time San Diego did jack-**** on offense and precious little on defense. That is the mark of a team that isn't ready to overcome adversity. We know exactly what that looks like because we saw it for quite a few years (and still see it from time to time depending on the situation).

    The Chargers are putting together something there. They have a lot of talent but they weren't able to put that bad call behind them and get on with finishing the Texans off. Every game there are bad calls and every team faces them. If your team can't put them out of their collective minds and maintain their focus then they lose. It's almost a constant in the NFL.

    Well dude needs to be fired!!!

    "unnecessary roughness" is a personal foul........ A 15 yard penalty. And yes, the rules did change a year or so ago about hitting the long snapper.

    Media doesn't care about us. They're still chirping about Seahawks/Packers flub.

    And it wasn't our bad. Refs blew the call, we just played it out. Winners win.

    Coaches should be able to throw flags on penalties. That's what I think any ways.

    With reviews coming within 2 minutes, after a change of possessions (so after all fumbles) and all TDs being reviewed, the red flag is usually kept in the pocket...

    I think in fast motion it is easy to see how the Ref in live action could have saw more than what happened, in slo-motion it looks harmless. I'd love to see coaches be able to throw flags on penalties.

    I know a lot of them are judgement calls any ways but some penalties are big penalties.

    Well when a call is if on an officials judgment then there is no right or wrong. If u watch the replays there was a lot of times JJ Watt got into the back field but the guard had his arms wrapped around JJ from behind, why werent those called, but the 2 little calls on jean were called ?

    Fans of one team say no big deal until they get a call they think is un fair and vice versa. Oh well we won

    Anytime somebody in the media says its a judgement call, they are saying its a bad call. And it was a bad call.

    Opinion based. So it doesn't really matter what the article says the referee was right since he used his judgement. In his eyes it was a penalty

    Its a mixed bag of responses to this call on the Chargers message board. Some are saying it directly cost them the game, others are saying the call can't be blamed for the Chargers melt-down. None of them however mention the obvious false start they got away with on that long pass play.

    I really hope that all the Texans read it, not because they don't deserve the game, but they will play even harder knowing they might of been 0-1. This is not the same as the Packers/Seahawks game last year, so no robbery if Chargers missed out going to the dance by 1 game.
