it would have pushed them back to mid field or so and they would have had to try to get back into field goal range.
It was a 15 yard penalty? Ya, that makes a big difference.
with our 3rd and long defense, you never know they could of just gotten it all back but it was a call that needed to be made.
These are the damn play-offs, the refs should be extra knowledgeable on the rule book.
It was pretty much an embarrassment for the NFL. Refs not only missing calls left and right (WITH instant replay, I might add) but also not knowing their own damn rule book.
Maybe next time you put a crew that has worked together.
seems to me that Denver was screwed on all but the first call...add to this that NOT A SINGLE holding call went against the Ravens offensive line all day long. I simply cannot believe that Von & Doom were manhandled, legally, the entire game by a reworked Raven line.
in all honesty I didn't notice the officiating being this bad while watching live, but watching these highlights makes me want to scream!
Denver had some timely calls for them too. They didn't deserve it. Offense was bad and slow paced. Miller and Dumervil played awful. Im not blaming the refs cause that game should of been a win if Denver plays halfway decent. The penalty on the CB for a hold was a joke call which allowed Denver to score a go ahead touchdown. The illegal use of hands on Suggs on Clady was weak that overturned a 3rd down turnover or sack I believe. Denver should of won that game. But they played their worst game of the season. Those refs were bad both ways though. Worse in our favor. but you can't blame the refs only ourselves.
The Hands to the face on Suggs was all the way a hands to the face, suggs hand went from the throat all the up to underneath the face mask even he was not complaining about the call.....
And to say Von miller and doom played aweful it doesnt seem like you watched either of them all game....i have watched the game numerous times and they both are held a great amount of times with no calls.
I really did think some of these calls were very questionable. I was waiting for the one make up call that would benefit us in the end. It never came. I know some people don't agree, but I really think that PI call in the 1st on Carter turned the whole game around. Remember Holliday just ran one back and if they had to punt from within their endzone, we could have had some great field position. If we score, we may make the Ravens lose confidence. Never know. Oh well, guess these nightmares from that day will haunt me until next season
In Elway I Trust
Wouldnt that be a personal foul of something.. usually ends up in 15 even if it isnt specified, I may be wrong but Im sure all personal fouls are 15 yards
That was one of the worst officiating I've seen in a real long time.....it was bad.
