It was not a good day for NFL officials on Sunday, including in the Arizona Cardinals-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game
You’ll have to excuse a little time of elapse before bringing up what an atrocity the officiating was on Sunday in Tampa for the Arizona Cardinals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was a frustrating end to say the least. The Cardinals lost 30-27 because of their own mistakes but the officials did not help at all.
After missing an obvious pass interference on the last play of the game Sunday against the Buccaneers, it is clearly time for some things to change. Easier said than done but there are some things the NFL must do to clean up its mess.
Get rid of pass interference replay
We get it New Orleans. You got screwed too. Initially it sounded like a good idea to introduce pass interference in replay.
The play at the end in last years NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams undoubtedly was called incorrect. I think we can all agree on that.
The aftermath has been nothing short of a mess. Fans wanted to sue the NFL, it was a circus. Then the NFL said, hey we will put it in replay starting in 2019.
That has proven to be a bad choice. The officials almost overwhelmingly have refused to overturn any pass interference calls made or not made on the field. It’s time for it to go. Otherwise why was the rule made possible to begin with?
