Jerome Boger and the officials

41 posts in this topic

I thought the referees called the game pretty ok.

- Hardy led with his helmet -- that is a foul in today's NFL. Palmer was out of pocket so he was bound to be hit hard when he held the ball so long.

- Cam got lucky he didn't get ejected for kicking. I thought it was a correct call when he "touched" the referee -- Cam was obviously frustrated because offense was not good today.

- Kuechly hit a defenseless receiver today and it looked like a illegal hit because the receiver's head snapped back. The same thing happened when Olsen was hit for a personal foul. Some other officials might not have called these hits but at least today's officials called them for both teams.

I don't remember any other questionable spots or other calls or long conferences where the officials didn't seem to know what they were doing.

They were bad on both sides.

Cam gets shoved out of bounds after throwing the ball away..should have been a call based on the "rules".

Luke got screwed on one call too-- it was freaking chest-to-chest.

Maybe they can just not call those "defenseless" receiver calls and have the NFL review the questionable hits each week. If it's found to be helmet-to-helmet, get a big-ass fine. Maybe have a point system and after so many points get suspended a game. Something's gotta change.

Officiating is bad in the Denver/Cleveland game too. Ghost calls all over the place...announcers calling them out on it. Alberto Riveron is the head ref.

No.

Hardy's hit was borderline only because of the helmet.

Keeks hit and the hit on Olsen were absolutely not fouls.

Stupid, stupid calls.

In the refs defense, they have made bad calls in the panthers favor too.

So they arent biased so much as bad at their job

Agreed. The bad calls went both ways. Just an inept set of refs today.

Anytime u can name the officials it's never a good thing. However there was some integrity to the officials they called the same penalties on both teams.

I never saw any indication of Hardy leading with his helmet. To me, it always looked like he hit him with his shoulder, which is as far as I know supposed to be the prototypical tackle.

His helmet hit Palmer in the back.

However, I still do not believe that it was an illegal hit. It was hard football and a shitty penalty.
