    Last week they cost us the Giants game, this week we almost lost the Jags game. I hate to blame the refs but damn, that OD call as an incompletion was total B.S. Oh and when are they going to call holding for Mario, I saw one play when he was literally dragging an o-lineman to the Quarterback, that is getting really old!

    What late hit on Carr? I watched the whole game but must have missed it.

    I thought when he got injured, that seemed like a late hit. Overall, it was almost a fair called game imo.

    I think they were pretty bad both ways.

    I think he is referring to the one that hurt Carr's shoulder. I think it was a legit hit... but I tend to find most of the "late hit" calls to be questionable.. so it may have qualified as a penalty for all i know.

    That review had to be the lamest review I have seen. How they can say he didn't make a football move is beyond comprehension. That ref is either biased, was part of a heretofor undiscovered point shaving scandal or had money on the Jags, is blind as a bat, or extremely incompetent. Since there is no other plausible explanation from one of the above, and all are fireable offenses, I feel he should be immediately fired, and an investigation should begin. And no, I am not joking. Something is extremely fishy.

    I'll agree with your extremism on this one. That was a miserable field call and inexcusable review. No way, no how that could be anything but definitive evidence of a catch.

    The call on Owen Daniels was a bad call, but the refs seemed to screw up calls on both sides. We should really give thanks for this W to Reggie Williams. How many times did he cost the Jags a big play. There was the hold on the long run, and then there was offensive pass interference on the long pass play on one of their late 4th quarter series.

    I think the upstairs guys are scared to contradict the refs on the field.

    Ya, that was a BS call on the no catch. Man, some people should be fired for that one. How could you NOT call that a catch? Good thing the good guys won. Man, it sure is sweet to beat the kittens! Go Texans!

    I think instant replay should be abolished. I'm serious.

    I see this stuff every single week where an obvious bad call is not overturned despite conclusive video evidence. Not a single week has gone by where I haven't seen an instance of this in some NFL game. This time, it happened against the Texans. Two weeks ago, we saw that happen to the Titans.

    I was listening to NFL Sirius Radio last week when they were taking about these bad calls not being overturned. Tim Ryan, one of CBS announcers, after seeing one of these plays, called Art McNally, the chief of the referees. And he said something that made me almost drive off the road. He said that the slow motion replay that you see on TV is NOT what the official sees when he looks under that hood on the sidelines. He said the rule states that he can only look at the "network feed" at regular speed, not the slow motion take that everyones sees on TV.

    THAT is instant replay that is designed to fail.

    It should be done away with. Firing people wouldn't solve anything.

    I hope this is one of the calls they discuss on the NFL network this week. Because... it's incomprehensible to me. That was a catch and a fumble out of bounds.

    If Owen Daniels' play was an incomplete pass then Jameel Cook's fumble last week sure as hell should have been too and we'd be sitting at 4-5 right now.

    agreed, what would happen to the NFL if refs were being overturned at a consistant rate?

    Well to refs that have never played before they would not know what it is.

    But that is a stupid rule, and WAS a stupid call.

    No way that was clean. Carr released the ball and the guy took two steps and plowed into his shoulder.

    Mario got flagged for less last week.

    That was too much. It's right there caught on camara for everyone to see.

    Do the refs get fined for this crap?

    What good are camaras if this is allowed?

    Too bad for them (the refs) we won the game anyway. :marionaner:
