    haha yeah let them throw the flags when they "feel" they have been the victim of real football, and not this powder puff game they call football.

    I was meaning like for flag football, can't touch them at all, just grab the flag. That's the route the NFL is heading sad to say. Not even the same NFL it was 5 years ago much less in the 70's.

    well i say give the QBs flags, and then they can go ahead and save the refs from wearing their arms out over B.S calls. Whyd do QBs even need to wear pads anymore ?

    Again, it won't show up as much in the stats, but it changes field position and momentum. Officials should be more accountable. It's becoming to obvious how either inept or crooked these guys are.

    Wow, I'm a Cardinals fan, no affiliation to the Texans at all and I have to come on here and say you guys got straight up ROBBED by the refs in this game.

    I just would like the NFL to come out and say they were wrong on that hit. If they maintain that this was a penalty then we might as well just go ahead and strap flag belts onto the QB's.

    That was ridiculous.

    Which Roughing the passer? Watt got called for hitting Orvlosky below the knees, which he actually was pushed into Orvlosky's knees.

    Was there another he got called on? Watt got an illegal hands to the face by grabbing the O-lineman's facemask...
