    A questionable face mask 15 yard penalty. Even the announcers thought it should have been only 5 yards. A real bad late hit call against the Bears and the announcers thought it was a terrible call. Owens gets a TD and starts doing sit ups and no flag for taunting. I have seen flags thrown for taunts that are nowhere near as bad as that. Too bad one of the Bears didnt do an elbow drop on Owens. It would be worth the penalty. What a shame the refs have to be there for the Eagles agaisnt a Bear team with 3 rookies startin on defense and their starting QB out for the year. They were struggling against a team with a QB who has not started since 2001

    I hope TO gets fined for his latest celebration. Those sit ups in the end zone.

    So gauche.

    I have seen flags thrown for much less than that. Yet the refs let Owens get away with it. If I were one of the Bears I wouldve jumped up as high as I could and done one of those pro wrestling elbow smashes on Owens but for real. It would have been worth the penalty. But guess what no penalty called on the Eagles. I said it in a post before. When you play the Eagles you play the refs to.

    The Bears shot themselves in the foot with the attempted fair catch turnover.

    That really jump-started the Beagles.

    He did sit ups? Who are the idiots here that didn't show that lowlight?

    I hope he does get fined.

    And "The Exhibitionist" didn't do two or three.

    He was down there showing off so long it would have been delay of game had the clock been tickin.

    Yep he did Hostile. The refs didnt even throw a flag. If any other player would have done that it would have been a penalty. The refs are with the Eagle all the way. I woulda lauged so hard if one of the Bears would have kicked Owens in the back the head as hard as they could when he was doin that. If that happened i would have made that my new avatar.

    I thought it was fishy last week when Owens scored and did that "stand on the football and salute around the clock" routine and nothing happened, but on the next possession the longsnapper caught a rare TD pass and snapped the ball between his legs to get an instant 15-yard penalty.

    In their defense, when Dallas was great in the early-mid 90's we got all the calls as well.

    ridiculous post....the officials may not be very good, but it's silly to suggest they like or favor the Eagles.

    The Eagles are a typical team....they find ways to beat the good teams, but they play down to the lesser teams, still winning. They are 4-0 and still one of two favorites from the NFC....and that's not going to change until someone like the Cowboys gets good enough to challenge them for a season, not just a game.

    They have had the benefit of numerous bad calls in each of their 4 games...at some point you have to wonder what the deal is...the roughing the passer call I saw on Ogunyele was one of the worst things I have ever seen...hell I can stand back there and complete 70-80% of my passes if the league is going to allow my OL to hold forever and then if by some chance a DL does get through to hit me, they flag the contact for just dragging me down

    Ummm...

    We were penalized 10 times in the game for 73 yards...I don't think the refs are favoring us too much...
