    No, I’m laughing at this remedial little kid on CZ who apparently can’t read.

    You lose.

    He also spoke about the missed opportunity on third-and-3 in overtime where it appeared that his facemask was grabbed.

    “It’s one of those situations that happens,” he said. “It happens. We’ll get better. We’re working on it. It’s one of those things where I think the coaches are better at explaining that one and for me, if he gives me opportunities my job is to find a way. That’s how I look at it. I wish I was a little bit closer to it and give myself an opportunity to make a play on that.”

    It's true that's what he said and credit to him for not blaming the refs unlike our players, but it's still a facemask pulling in 2 separate directions. Missed call and it helped us win the game. Not bad for a 50/50 call.

    memo to the NFL:
    NO ONE LIKES LOT OF PENALTIES. Players, fans, NOBODY.

    The REFS should never be game changers.

    My mistake for trying to explain the rules, which requires some level of basic reading comprehension, to the guy who couldn’t even comprehend the article he replied with.

    “DURRRR NICE BIG FAT LIE BUDDY”

    Was not a big drop in calls against the Cowboys defenders, that's for sure. Too many damn rules in today's game.

    A lot of our guys handfight with the receivers after the initial 5 yards. The style of play we use is similar to Seattle's where the DBs are very physical. I expect there to be a lot of calls against us, which seems par for the course when we start doing something well.

    Great! More flags and more screen time for the refs. Just what every fan wanted.

    Honestly, it's getting worse than basketball with all the penalties getting called lately.

    BUT having great athletes and skill negated just because a defender can mug the receiver rather than cover them isn't something I want to see either.

    We need rules & enforcement that give the D a chance but they also need to be held accountable.

    To be fair illegal contact penalties were cut in half last season compared to the prior 2 so it would make sense for the NFL to say "maybe you are missing some".

    Exactly. Dallas should have a good defense this year, so some subjective contact flags at the two or three coincidental points of a game that CAN change the outcome. I can see it now…”Dallas leads by 2. Third and six, Philly, at the Dallas 41…Parsons says no, BIG stop…but wait, there’s a flag! Unnecessary contact, first down Eagles! All they need now is a FG for the win!”

    Great!!! Another rule clarification to take the game away from defense.
    Why do we even bother defending the pass? Should just line up 11 dlinemen and hope they get to the QB before he throws the ball

    I agree. I just hate penalties that are subject to interpretation. Like the catch rule for example.

    If this penalty is called much lower than normal maybe we need better officiating and less rules for them to judge?

    Yeah, lets speed the game up by streamlining the things that don't have to be ambiguous and not spend 5 minutes in super duper slow mo to see if the ball micro bobbled 3 yards outside the field of play when the guy clearly had possession with feet down in bounds. Let's not call blow to the head on the QB when it was clearly an inadvertent contact that doesn't need to be replayed & challenged. Lets upgrade the technology & review system at the stadium so they can quickly decide what needs further review and what doesn't.

    Well Flamma , they do this every year with either new rules, or the focus on this or that lol.\
    I think it is how they cover up game manipulation.

    So now when fans see a flag for this penalty, media people will say the refs and players have not adjusted
    to it yet, same thing for a new rule.

    They have now given us advance notice, and looking at the posts here, we all know it means more flags,
    in some games, and also quite a few bad calls we dont agree with. So they know how to lay it on us
    so it seems bad but normal.

    On top of this they still have the catch rule which they can still use and other flaky rules.

    yeah but we all keep watching lol, and they know we will.
    they move the area of focus around to different things lol, but they will continue to have that.
    it helps them manipulate games.

    Do you think the owners actually came up with this and thought refs should focus more on Illegal contact?
    no this is from the committee who decides on how best to manipulate games this season.\
    I think for helping vegas make the most money, on over under, beat or not beat spreads etc.
    Then nfl gets a % of that.
