We are an undisciplined team. Undisciplined teams commit penalties.

But the refs were idiots, that much is true.

Ok, we got 3 turnovers and how many first downs in the first half? The Eagles tried to give this game away in the third quarter and you blame the refs? You might want to look at your fearless leader.

I don't understand how a guy juggling a catch shows possesion with 2 feet down.

Orton runs for the first down when its 3rd and 2 with ten yds in front of him and it's a different ballgame

Let alone show enough to overturn the call on the field, which is supposed to be so overwhelmingly obvious in order to do so.

Today was bad... but I have seen much worse officiating this season alone. The Pitt @ Den game was worse. The Baltimore @ Pitt game today was worse.

Or DJ not letting McNabb run past him on 3rd and 25 (flipping field position). That was just terrible, even if they did stop them later.

Let alone to overturn it.

However, we might have gotten a slight benefit on the backward pass overturn (though I thought it went directly horizontal if anything).

plays like this and the broncos would have won, which is why its not 100% the refs fault the broncos lost obviously. but if the refs had fairly called this game, we win no question. they got so much help especially early on.

We didn't do enough to win the game.

That said the refs did all they could to make calls on third down to extend and end drives all game. They had a huge impact in the result today.

Yeah but it really sucks when you have to fight two opponents and not just one.

The worst was the phantom "hands to the face" on Woodyard.

I'm not a big "blame it on the refs" guy, but geesh... at least come close to getting it right if you're going to change the course of a game.

Refs gave us 7 back. How about stopping them on 3rd and 25?? Scoring on one of those 4th quarter drives?

I blame who ever gameplans. This team starts so slow in the 1st half. I can remember a couple times this year that we have been down 2 scores before our O has a 1st down. We didn't get a 1st down until the 2nd quarter.

Maybe if they started better and wern't down 13 or 21 at the half they would have a better chance at making the comeback.

I think the worst was when the Ref's signalled touchdown on that 47 yard TD pass to Celek on 3rd down. There should be a penalty for a dude that wide open.

How about this. If the Eagles don't commit two penalties after the interception they aren't backed up to their 1 yard line. Or, if the Eagles return man doesn't fumble we aren't even in the ball game. Or, if Orton doesn't go down every time he gets tapped on the shoulder, maybe we convert more 3rd downs.

You know what? It doesn't matter. We lost, that's what ACTUALLY HAPPENED. We failed to capitalize on their mistakes and we made too many mistakes ourselves.

i agree with this, we should have had this game put away. but fact is, this ref crew was looking to throw flags all day long. they picked up 3 or 4 because they couldnt find a penalty.

refs can call PI or holding on any play. it's always there. somebody is always guilty. so a few flags thrown at strategic times or not thrown and you can change the outcome of a game. the NFL knows this. the refs know this. the mob knows this. if you think the mob can compromise the NBA and not the NFL, think again. i've had my suspicions dating all the way back to SB #3. no 2 teams ever play a fair and square game in this day and age. one team will always get calls that the other will not (e.g. NE, INDY, PIT) and some teams will get calls against them just because of their reputation (OAK, BAL). thta's just the way it is (IMHO) and you hope to overcome it. when SF was a dominant team in the leagues during the 80's and 90's, they would get so many calls it was unbelievable. they knew it too. you'd sometimes see them laughing about their good fortune at having the refs in their back pocket. the NFL has franchise that are the face of the league. they want those franchises to succeed. sucks if you're not one of them, but it's great when you are.
