Want to get away?

September 27, 2010

Being a referee in the NFL is a hard thing to do. But to mess up a big call in an NFL Stadium and on National TV is pretty embarrassing. For Carl Cheffers, he “Wanted to get away” as the Southwest Airlines commercials would state. The game was the Houston Texans agains the Dallas Cowboys in the 4th quarter. After a kick off return by the Cowboys, there was a flag thrown. Here is the call:

To Note: There were three fouls on the play, and they offset each other. The unnecessary roughness calls against Dallas linebacker Leon Williams and Houston linebacker Kevin Bentley, and holding on Dallas long-snapper L.P. LaDouceur (the hold was offsetting, but enforced).

Here is an original Southwest Airlines commercial:

…I think the guy did the right thing and didn’t embarrass himself completely. I have seen this done before. I remember the Giants vs. Redskins in 2008 and the guy Ed Hochuli completely botched the call (VIDEO BELOW). I think it is hard to be an NFL referee and cut this guy some slack. What stunk was the guys commentating for FOX in the booth were laughing really hard and made it seem like a joke. It was funny don’t get me wrong, but I would like to see anyone try to go out and do it. It is definitely hard. One lesson learned from today. After a moment like that, you definitely want to get away…

Plays of the Week

September 20, 2010

Take a look at these plays:

…This play by Pagan was amazing not only to make the sliding grab but to save 2 runs and even convert a double play. He is a phenominal defender and can cover so much ground. He also turned a triple play this year which says a lot about his defense…

…LT is back and he is back with fire power and energy. I have never seen a guy get put down so much and then come to New York and put on the Jets and become the runner of old. He is baaack and he has something to prove…

…On fourth down and the game on the line, Shaub throws it in desperation in double coverage and Andre Johnson comes down with it to tie the game and ultimately win in OT. He is a game changer and he is in my opinion the best go up and get it recievers in the league…

…Ryan Braun has been something special for the Brewers for so many years. But when he switched from Third Base to Left Field no one knew what to expect. Well on this play you saw it all. Amazing athleticism to run up and get it and just perfect snow cone. What a play in San Fransisco…
