The Refs don't protect guys like Cam

I don't think so...I have notice it too with guys like vick and rg3,,The league have said they will protect the qb more...but seems they don't care about dual threat qbs.

 

Be careful what you wish for.. When a pile of defenders get to a Manning, they blow the play dead. We all know Cam can break lose of 3 or 4 guys and run for 20 yards. You want the same still of reffing for Cam, that may actually limit his potential.

That too, bigger players playing the qb position probably don't get the benefit of the doubt.

 

Yeah this is called the Shaq rule. When you violently hit a big man it looks less egregious then hitting a little shrimp like Brees.

I will say the helment to helment should have been called and those guys get that call most of the time, however Cam got a big time qb call when they called the push out of bounds thats a call big time qbs get every single time and thats the first time i can remember him getting one like that.

 

This.  It ended up balancing out.  The refs missed one that probably should've been called, but then we got one in a late game situation that we probably shouldn't have.

 

I'm a lot more peeved about the two "going to the ground" catches that the Dolphins got the benefit of the doubt on that looked clear as day to be incompletions based on the rules as they are currently written.  I think it's a dumb rule, but it's a rule none the less.

there's obviously an agenda behind the NFL and it's officiating. 

 

This is one of those threads that could have easily scored 10+ pages if KT were still around.

Bingo! I totally agree with this  assumption.

I understand the outrage. But it wasn't as obvious as the Brees hit. The ref that would have called it was directly behind Cam, and his head didn't really get knocked back.

btw that hit to Brees' neck would probably have hit Cam in his stomach.

The official had a bad angle. I don't like it, but if you watch the play you'll see that the guy simply couldn't see what happened.

 

The problem is that they shouldn't be in a bad position from the get go.

Rivera stated he is sending tape of the hit to the league.

 

 

I read that the official that would have thrown the flag was blocked from seeing the play, which is a problem obviously.

 

That may explain the obvious missed call. I was worried for  some time that Cam had gotten a concussion on the vicious hit. No doubt but what it hurt him and affected the teams play in setting an early tempo.

What a load this thread is, somebody crying about officiating after the breaks we have gotten the last two games. Give it a rest.

I just love the logic some give that a Super Bowl ring is supposed to add +1 to your Football Ring of Protection for every ring you own.

 

That reasoning is just so ridiculous.

 

The logic for that, just as the logic for "the Jordan Rules" used to be in basketball, is "HEY GUZ THIS DUDE IS BETTER THAN EVURBODY ELSE HEY YOU KNOW WHAT HYUCK HYUCK LETS MAKE IT EVEN *EASIER* ON HIM AND GIVE HIM EXTREE SPECIAL RULES SINCE HE DOESN'T EVEN NEED'EM!!!"

 

:rolleyes:
