    Officiating Burned Our Defense

    Many people seem to think that although the officiating was the worst ever, the defense could've stepped up and overcome those zebras.

    I agree to some extent, but it looked to me that the flags affected how our defense played. To me, it looked like all those questionable holding/illegal contact/PI calls made the secondary timid. After those calls, I thought the DB's looked less physical at the line, and were scared to jam the receivers.

    I don't think those flags just gave the Ravens chances to keep the drive alive. I think they affected the way the game was played. What do you guys think? Did any one see it the same way?

    The defense was playing great until the bs calls started popping up. I agree, I think it changed the way the defense played the game. There are a few instances where the penalties gave the Ravens long drives. The one that first comes to my mind is the 2nd and 14 or whatever it was when they called a penalty on McCourty to give the Ravens a first down when the receiver wasn't even touched. If that isn't called then the Ravens have the ball deep in their own territory on a 3rd and 14. That is a HUGE difference. We could have forced a punt and had great field position. Instead that led to a TD.

     

    What are the defenders supposed to do when they get called and they don't even touch the receiver? Add even more cushion so that it doesn't get called? Or how about the D-line getting tackled by the O-line all game? I don't remember holding getting called on their O-line once, but I remember seeing Chandler Jones having arms wrapped around his neck and grabbing his junk all game. How about Edelman getting slapped in the face by the Ravens over and over? This game was pathectic. The Pats outplayed the Ravens and then when they started to get the momentum again what do ya know, there's a defensive holding penalty to help the Ravens out. The Patriots moving the ball too well? Oh, well let's call a bs offensive pass interference on Edelman so the game doesn't get out of hand. Torry Smith pushes off our CB? Oh, well, you know, he's hurting pretty bad right now so let's give him this one. The crowd doesn't like what we are calling? Let's call a holding penalty on Spikes to take away that sack.

     

    Ugh... I'm extremely PO'd right now. I usually don't complain about refs, but this was beyond pathetic and it changed the entire game.

    kevin ur D is just fair at best right now, refs or no

     



    Won't argue that. I'm not saying we would've had a top-of-the-league defense out there if the refs didn't get in the way. I'm saying, for this game, the refs interefered with our defense enough that it cost us the game.

    LOL Spikes

    Frustrated with the officiating in the Patriots' 31-30 loss to the Ravens on Sunday night, linebacker Brandon Spikes sent the following tweet after the game:

    "Can someone please tell these f------ zebras foot locker called and they’re needed Back at work !!!! #BreakingPoint"

    You can bet he'll hear from the NFL on that one.

    I think crying about the refs is the way to go.  I wonder if the Raven fans would have been crying about the refs considering they had 50 % more penalties and penalty yards.  But those were probably legit, right?

     



    The Patriots had 10 penalties called against them. Now, I know that doesn't seem out of the ordinary for a fan of the most undisciplined team in the NFL. But for a well-coached team like the Patriots, who rarely commit many fouls, that's a ridiculously high number. And if you saw the game, you'd know why there were 10 fouls on the Pats: because half of those fouls were not fouls.

    Re: Officiating Burned Our Defense

    The NFL is turning into a joke! The game looks more like a flag football game anymore. Something has to be done to allow the Defenders a chance to play defense. The game is becoming so watered down. The pass interferences are getting ridiculous! I also understand that the NFL is trying to protect the players, but these guys are flying around out there trying to make a play (at full speed) ... not in slow-motion. Many times the offensive player drops his head down as the defender is coming in, how in the heck is the defender supposed to change his projectetory (At full speed?) It's easy for the announcers and the NFL to be critical of the defender because they get to see it in slow-motion, but the defender is reacting in 'real time'. Doesn't seem like 'NFL Football' anymore. Pretty soon the scores will be like Arena Football, 68-65!
