    Honestly the Smoot "interference" can be argued either way..Ya he put his hand on him but he didnt do anything that prevented him from catching the ball.
    Yeah, I don't remember him tugging the jersey, only his hand touching the back.

    Smoots play was clearly passing interference. He pushed and tugged Holt's (or was it Curtis) jersey. As much as I hated the call it was correct. As far as the non-call on K-Rob, that was totally passing interference and should have been called as well. That was more passing interference than Smoots. They both were PI but the only thing I can say about Smoots is it was questionable whether or not the Ram could have caught the ball. It seemed to only be where Smoot can catch it. Smoot didn't have to grab the jersey and he did therefore he deserved the penalty.

    Yah Smoot had no reason to grab it and it was a call that should have been made.. Don't tug.. As soon as you do you get flagged.. Even if it doesn't do anything.. So I wasn't too mad about that call.. Although I have seen worse not called.. Like the K-rob one!

    Actually, I think that one of the refs used the quarter to call someone who cared about the game! :lol:

    I didn't think the officiating was terrible. Except the bogus "pass interference" penalty against Smoot, and their O.L. jumped a few times that it wasn't called for (maybe the refs gave them a break because of the crowd noise ??).
    Smoot clearly pulled Holt by his jersey. If they replay that play 100 times, the refs will call pass interference 100 times. I think Fred S is just not that comfortable at his position right now. The pick is gonna help out his confidence a lot.
    Very true that was and should have been called a penalty. The thing I don't understand, though, is Smoot, even without doing that had much better position on the ball than Holt. Why make that play when you don't need to? The only reason one may call it bogus, is because Koren Robinson didn't get the call on a similar play, that his arm was clearly grabbed before the ball got there. It's sort of like the strike zone in baseball, it's not fair to give one team a call w/o giving it to the other team.

    Honestly I watched the replay today of the call on smoot...He dosnt do anything put put his hand on his back...he dosnt shove or pull...It looked like he was bracing himself ....non the less we beat them...but I really think that that was questionable call.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Smoot pass interfered all the way. I was skeptical at first but when I saw the replay on ESPN I thought it was very clear. In that situation the Line Judge is looking for interefence and what he saw was Smoot reach up and grab the jersey of the WR. Smoot didn't tug it or pull him down flagrantly, but he did just enough to draw a flag.
