    Found this .

    Bill Vinovichs crew are the officials for Thursdays game.

    We are about to be raped!

    I hope the fans let him know early and often that we are WATCHING.
    Anything like last years playoff game and that crew may not get out of the stadium alive.

    Look for lots of PIs against us.

            Either that, or he sees the error of his ways, and he gives us multiple make-up calls. Personally, I'd rather have them in the playoffs, but I'll take it Thursday if i have to.

            FWIIW, I thought the Broncos was the beneficiary of some favorable calls Sunday, including the big hit on Decker by Pollard. That was clean, imo. The multiple PI and defensive holding calls were refreshing though as it seems the Broncos couldn't buy a call earlier this year.

              Chargers are coming on and our D is a shambles. It could be a close game anyway. A few Holding calls, a few PIs and this game is easily possible to lose. All they have to do is kill our drives and give Sd good field position a couple of times a half.

              I won't care if the calls go both ways and are not one sided. But we all know what happened in January.

              Peyton and the receivers , O-Line better play their butts off and just BEAT SD like a drum. Don't let the Officials keep this close.

              Fox needs to have the challenge flag ready on spots. Too bad you can't challenge calls.

              Edit: If Carter plays we are DOOMED

                OK, I know none of us are HAPPY about how the D is playing, but I think we're all collectively overreacting. Last week, the Broncos gave up about 250 yards of offense. They also forced two turnovers. That's not a total that suggests "IN SHAMBLES" like its 2008 all over again.

                Perhaps it'll get worse, maybe itll get better, maybe it'll stay the same, but people are making it out like we're the cowboys D.

                    Agree...but that crew flagged Carter on some pretty ticky tack stuff early on in the playoff game. It kind of set the tone for the whole game. We were not allowed to have contact at all against the Baltimore receivers, and their D backs mugged our guys the whole game.

                    That was the Joke about Carter playing.

                    On second thought ,if this crew somehow favors Baltimore now, then they will call the game in our favor...SD might be able to unseat the Ravens if they lose a few.

                    Like I said...I hope the game is called evenly.

                      the playoff refs were group of "all stars". The NFL mixes and matches the highest graded zebras for all playoff games. Vinovich just happened to be the head ref that day.

                        That's not entirely accurate... I don't know how he could have reached that "all star" status after only reffing for 1/2 the season.

                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Vinovich

                        Due to a heart condition, Bill Vinovich retired from field duty following the 2007 season, to serve as the replay official for Ed Hochuli. He was replaced as a referee by former side judge John Parry.

                        In 2012, doctors gave Vinovich a clean bill of health, and he has returned as a substitute official. On October 14, 2012, he returned to field level action for the first time since 2006, heading Scott Green's crew in Philadelphia.

                            yes, everything i said was true. They also rotate other refs in that do not have as much playoff experience.
