    They just showed the play where Philip spikes the ball and LT comes out too late and lines up outside the numbers!!

    Refs didnt call it!!

    That would have moved us back 10 yards and they would have ran 10 seconds off the clock cuz we were out of Time outs!!

    We were owed that non call though!!

    Thoughts??....

    So that's ONE non call against us BUT the Bengals got allmost a dozen calls either in their favor or non calls in their favors.

    Yep.

    One non call.

    Not to mention the 3 holding and 2 block in the backs. Two PI one holding penalty on third down potential conversion. Chop block that wasn't calledl. one very close delay of game.

    One bad spot.

    At least one offensive pass interference with a push off. I could go on by why. The fact that that they don't even discuss these and on a couple failed to show a replay is evidence enough.

    O yea the hit to the head 15 yard penalty potential to be throw out of the game that wasn't called.

    We had bad luck on that drive when one of our lineman went down and they ran ten secs off cuz we had no timeouts so too bad. :abq2:

    I'm FINE with it.

    For NBC's wrap up, LT outside the numbers was the only thing Dungy and those idiots brought up.

    Didn't call holding on the Bengals defense of Gates.

    Didn't call a facemask penalty on the Bengals defense when Jammer intercepted the ball.

    Refs miss calls all the time. Doesn't mean the Bengals win, just go to OT most likely.

    Whatta non-issue. It wasn't like they had to cover LT either since it was clear we were going to spike the ball.


    Oh well...pick, pick, pick.

    The refs were certainly not using their flags today. I saw two facemask non calls...one on Jammer and one on VJ that were easy to see. Plus the punch one of them threw...Good to see at least one non call went our way!

    the refs were relating their zebra stripes to the ones on the bengals helmets. nearly every frigging call went against the bolts today.

    It happens and it probably wouldn't have affected the game had it been called correctly.
    Sucks for the Bengals but that is the game.

    Yeah, like the facemask against QJam after his INT. How obvious was that. :icon_shrug:

    Every yard Benson got after that punch to the head pissed me off cuz I knew he shoulda been ejected for that. I mean hell, we've had guys ejected for punching when they didn't even punch. And Dungy seemed like DOUCHE when he brought up that non call. He is obviously still bitter about us knocking them off on a regular basis.

    And the people who didn't watch the game but saw those highlights probably think we needed a gift from the refs to win this game, when in fact there were plenty of non-calls against us that were a lot more egregious than that non-call.

    I'm not sure what rule is broken. Can't a player line up as a wide out when it looks like the offense will spike the ball?

    Penalties called or non calls are part of the game, always have been, always will be. It's a game played and officiated by humans, mistakes will be made. Time to move on, next up please.

    I saw that too. Cracked me up.

    First, in ANY game there are non-calls. So why are they so hell-bent on picking this one call out of this particular game? The story here is the Chargers' incredible run despite massive injuries AND the clinching of the AFC West. So-the-fack-what if there was a procedural non-call? Really? Lining up is worthy of review at that point? The game is OVER. The better team won because they outplayed the lesser team. Not "out-lined-up" the other team. OutPLAYED... as in, "while the plays where happening the Charger players PLAYED better than the Bengals players PLAYED." So, why go out of your way to point out a non-issue? Hacks.

    Second, the number missed calls on the Chargers side were bloody ridiculous. So, Gates getting mugged so badly that his pads come out of his jersey on a third down isn't important enough to mention? The ball was comming to him for Christ-sake. No... I'm sure a procedural call that might have decided a playoff-implicated game is FAR more in the spirit of the game than a receiver getting sexually molested directly infront of an official. Good choice guys!

    If Y'all really want to call Dungy out, just take a close look at the ball to VJ in the end zone. VJack would have caught that ball if not for having his helmet pulled down in front of his eye's.

    I don't have the game saved and if I could I post it here. I know what I seen and the defender had a hand full of face mask. No ref, no call, Dungy, of all people should know that and not call out the officials for a missed call.

    LT did not come out too late. Sproles was supposed to stay in but he twisted his ankle and hobbled off the field at the last second. As for illegal formation, I've never heard of such a call for a player lining up outside the numbers. I thought illegal formation only pertained to having seven players lined up on the line of scrimmage. Do you have a link you can provide that supports your contention that lining up outside the numbers is a penalty? Because I've never heard of it.

    You're right. He should know better but a loss like that must be a terrifically bitter pill to swallow, especially when your team played a good overall game. Still...

    First, you don't get time run off the clock for a penalty. Just injuries.

    Also an illegal formation is 5 yrds not 10.

    Now as to the call, hey NBC :icon_finger:.
