Not much the NFL can do with these types of calls.

It's just a matter of time before a FG controversy happens and it can be avoided with technology.
pr actually got flagged 3 times I believe in the Monday nighter last year against these very broncos for a head bob....then when he prompted another neutral zone infraction the refs didn't call either false start or neutral zone infraction, rivers got sacked, fumbled and it was returned for a TD and the comeback was on...just sayin.

actually only 4 times, the 5th time he never crossed into the "neutral zone", just flinched, but they called it anyway.

The chains could be done away with thru the use of available technology as well.

If the ball had some way to track it, and it could be pinpointed where forward progress stopped, then stuff like 4th and 29 never happens.

It would do away with judgment calls by the refs, and I don't think the NFL wants that to happen.

But the obvious stuff, there is no excuse for. Like Potatohead ducking and weaving, waving his hands around, and no calls by the refs. If Rivers blinks during the set, laundry flies everywhere.

It's well known the refs favor certain stars in professional sports. I think this game was not lost because of the refs but the calls certainly tilted to their side.
The field goal call is inexcusable
The offsides and pick plays I could go either way on but it seems kind of unfair that only one team can get away with it

Most everyone in the stadium thought it was missed too. Bronco fans didn'tt think it was good until the ref suddenly said it was good.

YOu were at the game, right? Bronco fans must have been getting nervous in the last 5 minutes!

Since this is becoming the bad calls thread

That pi on 3rd leading to TD was complete garbage. The holding call on the same play, Thomas got his arm over Weddle and pushed him down and then tripped on Weddle's foot. Weddle did not take him down and did nothing more than Thomas on contact. Was also before 5 yards. Should've been a no call all the way around and possible turning point because that was their last TD of the game.

WR picks explanation and pics in QB thread.

Where it's easy and absolute, I'm OK without
judgment calls. PI, holding, etc... no way around it.
