Can Someone Explain How It Wasn't a Penalty?

Fair enough, I think we can all agree at real-time and the added emphasis on QB protection, that's a tough judgement call in a critical juncture of the game. Understandable.
Yes. Just be consistent

Still a penalty on both accounts IMO, pretty simple. One was called the other wasn't. Never said anything about poor officiating or them not being consistent.

Can't believe people are still over this.

QFT.

Should have been a penalty on Hicks last night. Absolutely, without a doubt.

BUT, just because officials missed a call in one game, does not negate that a call in a previous game was correct. The bad call was the no-call last night, not the penalty last Sunday.

LMAO! You too have a very bright future under Roger.

Let's just make sure we throw that flag on a far less egregious "foul" when the game is on the line. It's good for the game.

Even in real time i thought it was a good hit. It looked like a standard clean edge sack/fumble. I saw the flag and was yelling that they can't call roughing, must be holding. When the zebras huddled i knew they were talking about calling roughing. They couldn't b talking about holding, that would be a moot conversation. Then instarted yelling u can't call roughing, u just can't. They called it and i didnt even watch the replay. Knew it was b******t. Ive seen that play made 10000 times. But they decided to call it there....

Complete horses**t. The worst part is the league backed the call and even fined brook heftily and made up an interpretation of the rule to justify the call.

Now today, worse foul, same team, same refs, no call....lets see their explanation tomorrow....

Oh oh the refs didnt see it... Even though two refs were staring right at it...

Gets even better, Mike Smith said in the post game conference that he was told by the refs that Ryan wasn't hit in the face or neck area.

Last time I checked, it was called a FACEmask for a reason.

Not only was that a blow to the head it was a face mask too. I honestly now think that the NFL is setting up the Saints to go to the Super Bowl, you can say no, but there's too many calls going there way. Let's come back to this after the NFC Championship!!

I am in total agreement of this. After last night's non-call there is no doubt in my mind that the Saints are on easy street. We don't even have to wait until the NFCC, the Aints are going to Seattle in 2 Mondays, where NOBODY wins right? Think that the Hags aren't going to be tagging Breesus with the jump they get off the snap in C-Link? with the Hags certain to get the division, I am almost wanting them to smack NOLA around some. We'll see how the officiating goes in that game, but I suspect the Hags are going to be hit pretty good with those flags on The Chosen One.

Will be the ultimate battle of Shorterbacks.
I'd like someone to explain how the grabbing & twisting of Ryan's facemask last night wasn't a penalty in the league's precious interest to protect QBs? WTF a gazillion times. Nice f**king double-standard you f**kface Goodell. Same damn ref crew as Niners-Saints. Hmm, what a coincidence. That play was marginally worse than what Brooks did. Damn we got so f**king shafted.
The No Fair League is all it is to me now!

They just didn't see it . . . nothing to see here. He'll get fined and justice will supposedly be served.

Correction, it wasn't the same officiating crew but it still makes the call on Brooks even more f**ked.

it was blatant and missed and gives the conspiracy theorists some good ammo.
i know it wont ever happen but i think refs should be forced to do post game pressers
anybody have a gif of the Matt Ryan hit?

So we can objectively assess it here?
LOL @ crab...THAT would be awesome. I know they are "graded" to determine who gets to ref in the big playoff games and Superbowl but we all say how that system was tainted last year. But that would be hilarious!

i think the umps did it at this years world series after that play where they called interference. i tuned into a channel and seen 3 or 4 umps at a presser after the game. my first thought was i've never seen this ever in any sport.

Fuels the fire as someone said earlier. Both should've been called IMO. Pretty much same thing except Hick's was 100% a penalty, and Ahmads was "iffy".
