How about the horrible officiating?

Recommended Posts

The hit on Lewan was exactly the type of hit that the NFL put in the new targeting/lowering the helmet/hit to a defenseless player rules in for.

 

It is ridiculous that Branch wasn’t ejected. The NFL ejected Shaun Williams for a much less egregious play earlier in the day. 

 

Additionally, it sure looked like Tajae Sharpe bumped legs with Reshard Jones on the interception, which should have been called down by contact at the Miami 45. 

 

Also, I went back and watched the Delanie Walker injury and it was a pretty clear horse collar tackle. The defender had his left hand around Walker’s nameplate/neck and used his entire body weight to tackle him.

 

There is way too much inconsistency in the calls for a professional sport.

I didn't have a problem at all with the tackle on Delanie.  It was a clean tackle....the fact that the defender ended up landing on his ankle was just plain bad luck.   Football is a game filled with violent collisions....sometimes unfortunate things happen and guys get hurt.

This began when Warren Sapp lit up a guard from UT. The NFL was supposed to stop this. Very bad play and no call.

This is a technique used by smaller DBs on big, tall receivers. Walker got mildly hurt last year on a TD with the same type tackle. It's not a coincidence.

On the Lewan crack back Branch should have been the only penalty.  While things got testy nobody threw punches.  And how the hell, after an int where our LT gets knocked silly would Titans get called for taunting?  Taunting what?  The refs totally sucked that game. 

 

As far as crack back blocks there might not be a better one than the one Randy Starks delivered a number of years ago when with the Titans.  Don't remember who that was against but it was almost criminal.

It was Kellen Winslow I do believe...

Titans need to consult Jeff Fisher for some in game enforcement.

Lol. Hire Jeff as an advocate to deal with officials in-game.

Vrabel wanted to challenge Jones being down by contact, but he was told he couldn’t. That should have been automatically reviewed, but it wasn’t. How can NFL officiating be so poorly done?

The officials told Vrabel they looked at it and didn't see a need to review. I don't understand how they reached the conclusion, looked close enough to be reviewed in my opinion.
