I honestly didn't think this was as egregious a miscall as it's being made out to be.

It strikes me as run-of-the-mill ticky-tacky rather than Grady Jarrett/Nick Foles-level BS.

My initial reaction upon seeing the replay was that Myles had time to avoid the hit entirely, but even watching again now and seeing that the sequence of events was a little tighter...it still strikes me as essentially a judgement call. There are flimsier calls in most games.


Agreed Chidi. Look, I hate the way the games are called these days, but in this situation the ball was already out of Ben’s hands. I’m not saying that is easy for Garrett to decipher when he is sprinting at Ben to make a play, but there is always the option to try and hit Ben without driving him to the ground without your entire body weight falling on top of him.

And even that is really hard to do, and puts a tremendous amount of responsibility on the defensive player. It may have been called “wrong” per Rivieron, but if the league has two options 1. Protect the star QBs at all costs, no matter what, and no matter how much responsibility it puts on the defensive player or 2. Let them do whatever they want to the QB even if it results in broken collarbones and lost seasons, well I understand why they go with option 1.

Arians even brought that one up when the other analysts failed to, but they acted as if they didn't even hear him.


Can’t believe they didn call that. Hines Ward made that a penalty.

I thought the Hargrave call was pretty ticky tack as well.

Maybe if Dupree had faked injury like Burfict did it would have been flagged.

I was thinking that our old buddy Alberto was referring to Steeler Al but perhaps, he doesn't have internet access where he's at.

The pic of Steeler Al and the cactus is classic. Dollars to donuts, someone here has it. Also the photoshopped pic of him at SB XXX.
