    I feel sorry for the guy man. He made one mistake and now every call made is suspect. His one mistake doesn't erase the years of good officiating he's done. I mean, it hurts BAD that he made his big faux pas against our team, but he's been calling a good game tonight I think.

    The guy is a good official -- one of the best in the business -- and he made a mistake, albeit an egregious one that directly affected the outcome of a game and just happened to go against us. He obviously took it really hard (as did we). It wasn't as if he was out to hose us intentionally, at least there's no evidence to support such a claim.

    Looking at the big picture. even that one call should not keep us out of the playoffs if we're any good (Take a hint from that last sentence Norv, Ted and all of the players who were celebrating pedestrian plays yesterday).

    He has made at least 3 or 4 bad calls this year .. while it doesn't erase what he has done in the past, he may be past his prime. And with 2 minute explanations of mess ups really doesn't make it any better.

    He threw another game tonight. How many more until he gets the hook?

    Well....if he was listening to the biased announcers, he would have given the game to the Saints. I finally had to mute them, just like yesterday I did the same and turned the radio on to hear the Chargers announcers. It was weird, though. The radio was at least 2-4 seconds ahead of the TV. LOL, at least I knew what to watch for.

    The Dolphins probably had to shower an extra few minutes to get all of Steve Tasker's slobber off of their nutsacks.

    Facemask calls are missed almost every game. I saw at least 3 or 4 holding calls against Jammer alone in our game that weren't called, yet the official for our game isn't blasted for it. I don't even remember who it was to tell you the truth.

    The announcers (who were IMHO very biased against the Vikes) said it wasn't the kind of face mask that's usually called, so it was ok that time.

    Former special teams guy for the Bills, current TV announcer who must moonlight as a PR guy for the Dolphins with all the love he was giving them from the booth.
