There were some individual calls on Sunday that were much worse than any of the calls in the Steelers - Chiefs game.
For instance, Tom Brady heaved a ball from the 50 yard line and into the first row of seats in the end zone, and the Bills were called for pass interference on the play. The ball was literally 10 yards out of the back of the end zone. There was hand checking going on but no way was that Pats receiver catching that ball. Unless he had paid admission to sit in the seats.
You can't make this stuff up.
There is a theme when it comes to league favorites. Anyone think the Bills get that call if Fitzpatrick throws one out of the end zone? NEVER.. But Brady gets that call because he's Brady.
As far as lineman holding, Harrison was getting strangled on most rushes. NFL referees do not call that no matter how much it looks like holding to fans.
The eye in the sky has a unique advantage. There are 22 large men and six officials on the field. What looks apparent to the camera may not be visible to the official on the field.
Conversely, PI is better called on the field where the official is running and can see if an act impedes the receiver or defender. He can telll if both are going for the ball.
First the NFL really doesn't care, their team stayed in the hunt, 2nd do you not remember the Browns ,Raven game a couple years ago everyone wanted to lynch Carey
Three would get to be players and three would get to be coaches.
It would be fun to observe.
