    Was it just me or did it seem as though the calls were a little home cooked? How could the refs claim that INT in front of TO was possesed? Hands to the face? False start, pass interference...wow!!!

    The Panthers got a bad call or two as well.

    Why are people so riled up about that INT -- it was a very close call -- I didn't see enough to overturn it. Honestly, I think the refs called it right there.

    Officiating sucked all around. A little more on our side, I think, but the Panthers got jobbed a little too.

    It didn't infuriate me. The only thing I thought was that there is no way a referee could call that an INT on the field - it should have been called no INT and then not overturned. But there is no way you could tell, live action, if he had posession and then got his feet in bounds. Impossible.

    I'm not sure they got it right, but by the standard required to overturn a call in the NFL the officials did the only thing they could.

    That int was one of the rare ones that no matter what the ref calls on the feild , it will stand, because the video evidence was not good either way. Anyway, the ref's did seem to call some tick tak calls esp, the holding call against, TO and the false start on andre.. and they seemed to miss some big calls against the panthers.. but that is what Home field advantage is all about.

    The defender clearly gained posssession of the ball before he went out of bounds on the INT.

    Was his foot in?

    Doesn't matter. T.O. shoved him at the last moment, and that would have caused him to fal toward the sidelines, as he did.

    Once he gained control, T.O.'s actions would allow his foot to be out because it is the same play as a defender pushing the receiver out before he gets both feet in.

    And it was a mental mistake by Romo taking that chance when it was a busted play.

    I was riled up when it wasn't overturned, because it was not even close to being an interception.

    Because he had one foot in bounds AND he didn't have posession until he was out of bounds. The ball was in the air and not in his hands until he was out of bounds irrelevant of TO pushing him.

    Come on, whether the DB's 2nd foot was in or out of bounds at the time he got possession was a matter of a fraction of an inch - so close as to be inconclusive on slow motion replay. It really isn't much of a stretch at all to think the official could have seen it either way.

    Hoover's Fumble on the Kickoff could have been ruled that he had a kneedown. Also, Delhomme's Fumble looked just like Manning's fumble that was overturned.

    What burned me more than the INT were the non-calls for illegal-contact that Carolina got away with the entire game. At one point Madden began to criticise T.O. for flairing his routes too close to the sidelines because that pushed him out of bounds. Madden said T.O. should know better than to run such poor patterns. But latter the same thing happened to Terry Gleen and Madden said the same criticism about Gelnn. But if you look at those plays more closely you'll see that they always came against the Panthers' left-side CB. Regardless if it was T.O. or Glenn, the CB on that left side would shove the WRs, past 5 yards, towards the sidelines, judt before ROMO passed the ball. That's illegal-contact that never got called.

    I think you might be seeing what you want rather than what happened.

    Then go look at the video tape. And look at when the ball is actually in his hands.

    I agree with you on this. If Sultan didn't see the play as "even close to being an interception" he either wasn't paying attention during the replays or just saw what he wanted to see.

    I agree with both of those, but Eli's was even more of a fumble than Delhommes'. That was a TERRIBLE call last week.

    The worst call last night was the illegal contact on Henry 5 seconds after the play. That was a terrible call and late and Keyshawn was never out of the 5 yard zone to begin with and the contact was before the ball was in the air.
