I know the replacement refs have gotten a lot of flack, and rightfully so; they sucked. But let's not forget, our regular refs suck too. I thought there were some pretty bad calls/non-calls today.
The first that comes to mind is when Sanchez took off running and threw the ball a yard or two past the line of scrimmage. It was 3 and 15 and would have been big get them stopped there that early in the game, but no harm no foul at the end of the day.
The second was Aldon's personal foul. This happens though and has always happened. The refs always have seemed to get the guy retaliating, in this case Aldon shoved the guy off him, but miss the guy who is starting the s**t and then flopping. Aldon needs to learn to keep his emotions in check even when some guy is trying to ride his back after the whistle. I thought the call was really ticky tack, but it's nothing new.
The third was the illegal hands to the face called on Carlos Rogers. Again, this was after a critical third down stop that gave extra life on their drive. After review, the refs totally blew this call. In a tight game these can be momentum shifting calls. Luckily our play on the field was good enough to make these missed calls unimportant.
