question on noncall at end of pats-panthers game

If they had given the Pats a shot I was ready to go nuclear because that pass interference or holding really wasn't all that different than what happened to Crabtree. Both players were held and the ball was said to be uncatchable. The only difference in a flag was actually throw for one and not the other. I'm just really getting sick of the NFL's poor officiating and over-control of game play through penalties. Did Brooks really deserve a penalty for the hit on Brees? He was tackling him like he would any other quarterback. So now all a qb has to do is slip down when being hit so the defender contacts their head and neck. Brooks is right. The game is being watered down and slanted so heavily in favor of the offense that it really isn't much of a level playing field anymore? Take pass interference for example. For offensive, its a 10 yard penalty. For the defense its spot of the the foul. To me, that is really messed up.

All I gotta say is I bet you would feel differently if the situation was reversed, the same hit was made on CK, he fumbled and it was recovered by the Saints at a crucial time in the game and no call was made.

Actually I wouldn't and I don't think many Niner fans would argue it. That was a football play. Since we are betting on other people's view point in hypothetical situations, I bet if the refs would have said Golden Tate didn't catch that ball vs GB you would say that he clearly had possesion

if that was reversed, I'd be like, "Damn, we got lucky!" Like I did when that dude fumbled the ball out the back of the endzone.
