So, I re-watched the Foreskins game from yesterday and was still bothered by what I thought was a bogus flag against TD in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter when Bob III was blasted, in bounds, as he approached the sideline in the red zone. It was close, but he was clearly in bounds. If you want to look it came with 1:49 left in the game.

Let me say this, if that was Manning, Brady, or a couple other immobile QB's I would just accept it, but Bob is a pretty dynamic runner who can turn on a dime. So, he is a threat to turn up the sideline and head towards the end zone.


3:03 left in the second half Cam is flushed out of the pocket to his right, he starts to head up field and closes the gap to the sideline and a more direct angle than Bob took, just before reaching the sideline he turned even more towards the sideline and slowed down, but was still hit by FS Reid Doughty, with almost the exact placement as Bob in relation to the sideline.

So, why was it a foul against TD, but not Doughty? Not, TD blasted Bob and almost sent him into the stands whereas Doughty just knocked Cam a little off balance, but the issue shouldn't be the force of the hit, but where it occurred on the field and on the QB.

Can't call bias about race or QB style, so why the double standard? Home field advantage, horrible officials (yes, I saw the whole game), too subjective a rule?

TL;DR- I wanted to start my own thread.

The flag probably came from the violent nature and from the amazing speed and crushing power in which Thomas Davis sent Bob's lifeless rag doll like body flying through the air crashing into the stands..

I noticed this too. It sucks because if Cam were to get rocked there would've been a flag....problem is its hard to decleat 6'5'' 260. You are right the wow factor of the hit shouldn't matter but oh well. Goddamnit I love TD he makes me cry every game

A lot of teams get fugged by the double standards by the refs.

Illegal contact is the biggest one, after the panther game, I usually flip back in forth between games ( I have Sunday Ticket), and it seems some teams get away with more illegal contact then others. There is no consistency from game to game, some teams seem to get the shitty end of the stick more often then others.....

Shouldn't matter, either it's illegal or it's not.

Looked pretty clear that he was going out of bounds. I wasnt that pissed with TD because you can't relax with RGIII but that was the right call.

Unloading on Griffin was a VERY poor decision by Davis, anyway you slice it. Legal or not.

It COULD have cost the Panthers the game.

I love the way the Panther D was popping people yesterday, though.

This. It was how it looked on the field; it looked brutal. I knew they were going to throw the flag in the moments before impact.
