    None of the broadcasters mentioned it. Only once did we get a clear look at it on replay, after the touchdown was given to the Jags, and no one here on the forum seems to have mentioned (that I could find), but does anyone have a clear picture showing Henry getting his head pulled down and into the receiver's chest when Jacksonville scored (I believe) their first touchdown pass?

    Initially it just looked like Henry was clueless and was trying to tackle the receiver with his head in his chest, but the last replay showed the receiver pulling Henry's head down before the ball got there!:mad:

    Henry got up and waived his arms around looking for the flag, but no flag came. I thought to myself it was just Henry trying to save some face after getting burned, but that final replay set me straight. It was definately a horrible no-call.

    I care, it was blatant. Much more blatant than the call on Witten. But, you're right. Nothing we can do about it now. We just have to win the next one.

    Troy thought it was a good no call. Just like he thought the Witten Offensive PI was a good call.

    It was so blatant that it was hard to imagine it not being called. Some folks on here brought it up right after the game. They were actually laughing on a local sports talk radio station here in Charlotte about how blatant it was. Bottom line is though that with under 2 minutes we had a 10-3 lead and all the momentum. I tell ya the play before the half that I thought was critical wsa the hold on FLO. Glenn had just gotten a first down around the 40, and I think we could have gone down to try a field goal. Instead a holding penalty, and he then throws the pick. Hope we bounce back this week. There will be, could be some good teams 0-2 after this week. Panthers at Minn is a huge game for them.

    Get over it. What are they going to do? Change the call retrospectively? Every season you take some bad ones and you get about the same number of bad ones go your way.

    Troy thinks anything against Dallas is a good call. I love me some Troy, but he SHOULD NOT broadcast any more Cowboys game.

    The only thing the ref could have done on that play was call def. and off. pass interference and if I was a referee and the CB initiated contact with hands there is no way I give him a reprieve because the WR won the contact battle!!

    That was not a jam - it was in the endzone when the pass was let go!

    Go look at the tape!

    Henry was not in good position on that play. I felt it was a good no call then and still feel the same today about it.

    I thought he grabbed his shoulder pads to pull him down. It was a pathetic no call. I'll also go on record as saying I thought the call on Witten was bogus too. He didn't push off as much as he just extended his arms as he made his break. I bet had he not extended his arms the result of the play would have been exactly the same. The DB had momentum working against him and would have had a tough time making the play.The last three games I have watched starting with the Super Bowl have all been marred with atrocious officiating. Call it tight or call it loose, I don't care. It should at least be consistent though.
