    Let me repeat this, you should not have your team in a position that if you do get a bad call it is going to aid in you losing the game.
    I would be willing to bet this is a coaches mentality.
    This is mine (and my staffs) as well as others that I have talked with.

    You cannot fine a ref for bad calls, its going to happen.
    Do you expect a human to be perfect?
    We have the luxury of watching it on TV from different angles and broadcasters helping us out.
    They have plenty on their hands and may have seen it from a different angle.

    Come on, get the lead and hold the lead.
    Not always that easy man, the other teams wants it just as bad my friend, the whole reffing phylosphy needs to be revamped.

    I totatly agree from a Coaches/Players standpoint, you have to move on, there's nothing that can be done. I've been watching these games though and to sit here and not be upset about what has happened is very difficult especailly when they get a chance to change it under review in slow motion and that is a luxury that they have.

    You gotta play, plain and simple.

    Ask Del and see what his take on it is.

    So your saying that if your team gets in a bad position and than steps they're game up and makes a stand your gonna blame your team for getting themselves in that predicament. That's not right, its not right to get yourself in that position either but if you make a play you make a PLAY. You should be rewarded for it, how would it feel to make a complete stand and than give up 7 when the other team really didn't deserve it. Having a good red zone defense is pretty much what we have been about the past years even when our d was horrid, we still would bend and not break. You cant blame your defense for sticking it out, making a play, and than bashing them cause they put themselves in that position. When our defense is on the field for most of the game, you cant expect them to make every single play so when they are able to make a stand to put us right back in the game, you gotta respect that and stick up for em for making a play. MAKING ONE PLAY can change a game, no matter what you may think.

    How many times can a ref be expected to get under the hood in a game?
    Do you want the game over reffed?

    Yes, we have had some iffy calls this year.
    But what if we get lucky and they go our way.
    Do you really want the call reversed?
    Hell no.
    I don't know how many times, maybe three, the game can't be slowed down to much but in all honesty when they do get there chances they need to make it right.

    There more than Iffy, alot of them are point blank. Calling Matt Birk for holding on that Chester Screen, are they serious?

    Lucky and go our way... God I hope so, I'm not banking on it though and if I was a player/coach I would go in every single game with the mentality that we're gonna have to beat the refs too, no ifs ands or buts thats the mentality.

    Good teams play well enough to make bad calls a non issue.

    Good example of one play, you wouldn't happen to remember "1 play" that cost us in a game against greenbay on Monday Night some odd years ago(ball rolling on arm). If that was Minnesota they wouldn't have had a angle on the replay and would have called in down by contact

    I remember that, Winfield big hit on specail teams. I also rember another one at home(Last Year Against the Packers) when the FB caught a pass in the flat, the guy had two feet down, Winfield hit him the ball popped out and EJ picked it up for a TD, refs blew the whistle dead, no TD. Thats making a play and getting ripped off.
