  • 2nd and goal - receiver again completely uncovered, overthrown
  • 3rd and goal - RB stopped for no gain
  • 4th and goal - Field Goal missed, blatant and brutal roughing the kicker, not called
So... has the missed roughing call lost the team the game? Or was it the inability to catch or throw to a wide open receiver?
That's why you have a review panel as he suggested. One that can take in the whole flow of the game, and context of a called or uncalled penalty.

In the Pittsburgh game for example, the missed call was egregious BUT, Pitt rallied, then couldn't stop a second half rally. It would not be worthy of the worst sanctions, but certainly there should be sanctions that emphasize the impact of the call at the time, and on the end score.

Sit down and watch any game this weekend. Watch it objectively and you'll see missed calls happen to everyone. Sometimes does it seem like it's unbalanced against one team? Sure. But there's no league wide conspiracy against any one team.
This !! I realize that you guys got burned on calls all I am saying is what MTK is saying that it's a major problem for all teams , the Giants have lost two games this year that way. I think these guy don't care anymore and either want to be bailed out by replay or they really are having that hard a time in calling a game which in my opinion is worse!
