    Re: Bungles fans blaming the refs



    Hahaha, I have some Redskin fans at work trying to gloat that we "stole" a win, and snuck out of losing.

    Washington won by 3 points and inches to the right! We won by playing a damn good game...the WHOLE game.

    Yeah, I had to stop reading right there. Little Danny is damn lucky that Leon was thinking about his celebration and dropped the TD pass.

    Was that PI on Prude-- maybe. From where I was sitting, it looked that way.
    Reed's was bogus....as for Henry being OB-- way too close to call....The game was called evenly for both sides...that's the best you can ask for (right Mike Carey?).....

    As for the holding penalties-- there wasn't a single holding penalty called the entire game. Apparently the ref's decided to let them play on both sides. Scott was held, so was Price..however, the Ravens did their fair share of holding as well...it was that kind of game.

    BTW, speaking of that last play, I've heard (although I haven't watched the replay to confirm it) that there was a pretty blantant hold by Bengals linemen on Bart Scott that wasn't called by the officials.

    This is very true. Scott was pretty much twisted the other way and would have either gotten to Palmer or disrupted his pass had he not been held.

    I also find it interesting that the Sun writers mentioned how many of McNair's potential INTs were dropped by the Bengals defenders, but they didn't mention how McAlister dropped one of Palmer's errant passes, and how a couple of other ones could have easily been intercepted as well.

    The bottom line is the Ravens outplayed the Bengals. They outgained them by nearly 100 yards. They controlled the clock. They were the more physical team. If the Ravens had been more efficient in the red zone, the Bengals would have been KOed by the start of the fourth quarter.

    Not overturning Henry's catch was incredible. He was certainly out-of-bounds when running down the sidelines, before positioning himself before the catch. I wonder if the NFL had a camera down the sideline, or if perhaps Billick did not specify in his challenge that Henry had stepped out of bounds and re-entered. i.e. if Billick's challenge was that Henry caught the ball out of bounds. If not part of the challenge, the refs cannot take it into account.

    It must really be sad to be a Redskins fan. Three seasons into the Joey Gibbs miraculous return to glory, and they are staring up at the butts of three mediocre NFC East teams with nothing to be optimistic about. Except for maybe a 4th season of the Joey Gibbs renaissance!

    Nice first post and welcome!!

    As stated above, we outgained them by nearly 100yds, and their offense included their longest play of the season at 71 yds, which is questionable since he should not have been able to touch the ball first after coming back in bounds.

    Welcome back Don Corleone, errr .... Dev! It's been a few years, I believe.

    Hopefully, you'll decide to stick around - this board is better than any of the previous versions.

    BULLSHORTS!!!! when I got home from the game, I watched 2 other games, the same non call was not made at least a dozen times!!!! It WAS NOT A PENALTY!!! Did you watch the replay? you are allowed to hit a receiver at the SAME time as the ball arrives!

    Yes, I did watch the replay ~ why is that always the first question asked when not agreeing with someone's take? Bad officiating occurs in every game it doesn't make it right. As I understand the rule you cannot be draped on the receiver prior to the ball's arrival and Prude was draped on the receiver like a cheap suit. BTW, just because you don't agree doesn't necessarily make me crazy, okay...

    As to be OB on the catch, I thought the replay at best was inconclusive and as such should not have justifed an overturn of the ruling on the field.

    Why is it not ok for henry to run out of bounds before comming back in and catch the ball but it is ok for CMac to run out of bounds, catch up to him and be the first one to tackle him? I'm just curious.

    Rules of football.

    No player can run out of bounds and be the first to touch a live ball.

    Think of the crazy routes you can run if you didn't have that rule.

    Now if a defender runs out of bounds and a receiver catches it, the ball is back in play.

    Re: Bungles fans blaming the refs

    On the TV it showed Henry 'nearly' touching the sideline with the ball in hand. The side judge was looking all the way, and the TV conclusion was that it was not out-of-bounds. It did not show any action prior to the catch - if that is to what you are speaking.

    The Prude PI looked like perfect timing at full speed.

    The Begals 'looked like' a good time team - before kick-off

    They sounded like the Bungles after it!

    Agree. I came hope after the game and immediately watched the game "tape" (is that what it's called on DVR?). It did not show what I saw at the stadium: Henry started down the sideline with a couple steps that looked out of bounds. The replay on CBS only picked up Henry as he was far down the field.
