NFL continued tradition: ridiculously bad officiating

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Unbelievably bad officiating int he Giants loss to the patriots in the last game of the preseason, where the bad calls actually led to enough patriots points for the win. If it weren’t the preseason there’s be puke in my mouth. We start with the call on Corey Webster, a dude who is looking back for the ball as he makes a play in the endzone to knock away a pass. Pass interference = 4 more points for the pats. Oh and the official had a horrible angle and could only have guessed what happened anyway.

But then the Patriots CB, a dude not looking back for the ball, is allowed to run through the receiver with no call. That PI – IF it had been called correctly – would have set up a game winning try.

Jets beat Giants which is bad but could be worse

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

So the Jets beat the Giants in preseason ball. The\ Jets weren’t going to do much this season anyway, and Sanchez is not a franchise QB, but he was probably going to be their starter. Anyhow, Sanchez was hurt playing in garbage time and their backup Geno Smith looks like a rookie who needs a few more years on the sideline because he has no business being on the field (though you can see some potential there). Ryan put Sanchez in because he wanted to win, but you don’t have to be an NFL head coach to know that your starting QB behind your 4th string offensive line is a bad idea.

The Giants were hurt by injuries as well – Stevie Brown was probably starting the season at safety, but it looks like his non-contact knee injury will keep him out for a while.

Eli Manning looked rushed in the pocket, and he didn’t seem to move around in the pocket to buy extra time the way we’ve seen him do in the past.

Eli Manning: the women’s choice

Instead of talking about how bad the Giants looked against the Colts and how Andrew Luck was clearly the best player on the field, let’s smile a little.
