I did not watch any highlights or anything up until a few minutes ago because that loss stung pretty bad. After seeing the return it looks like there was a blatant hold on Captain. I think it was number 35 Zack Bowman for the bears who was holding.

Did anyone else catch that?

Your a weenie

Yep very obvious. Its what allowed Hester to do what he did. Same reason there were no helmet to helmet hits on Smitty called. The fix was in.

I saw it live, and thought it was an IN game make up call for the blown hold last week against Green Bay.. either way, game is over.

IF they called every single holding call or block in the back every punt would be called back. poo happens. I'm over it and ready to beat those fugstick Saints on sunday.


True, but holding is almost always called when a guy is hooked out in the open on a punt. It was pretty obvious on that play with Captain. It was pretty blatant that I could even see it on tv live when it happened.

Peppers was held pretty blatantly when coming up on Cam's blindside as well....and there was no flag.

Can't get them all...
