Lovie Smith literally just got hired last summer lol. I mean, unique circumstances, I guess, but to think we'll only see fresh faces and no re-treads anymore is unlikely. Situations like the Panthers, where they badly whiffed on a fresh face, will always exist and that's where retreads will get a chance.

As a Chargers fan, Staley needs to go, he got bailed out yesterday but what a stupid gamble and he makes many of them. Chargers have a hard enough time to "not charger", they dont need a coach making these types of calls.

Bellichick made the same call in 2009. On his own28.

@RalphVacchiano:
Ron Rivera was asked why the other three teams in the NFC East are better than the Washington Commanders right now.

His answer: "Quarterback."

He's not wrong but if he had a hand in trading for Wentz then shame on him.

If I were an NFL QB I'd underthrow every deep ball. AutomaticPI.

This league is beyond ridiculous with these roughing the passer calls now. A complete joke.

Yeah just make it two hand touch on the QB for the sack if you basically aren't allowed to take them to the ground. Absolutely horrific how bad it's getting.

The Chiefs are getting their ass kicked, but that call is horrific.

If you're going to call that might as well just go all out and take out a QB and eat a BS penalty regardless.

It’s causing huge swings in these games. Obviously Atlanta got screwed yesterday, tonight KC gives up a field goal and would’ve had much better field position with a lot of time left on the clock before half.

Beyond that, it kills a big part of the game. Jones makes a great play, forces and recovers a fumble and that’s all reversed. Just killing a big piece of the game.

It's also 2022, call the ref from New York and overrule stuff like that and the Brady nonsense yesterday. Gonna be tough to convince people to keep gambling when stuff like that keeps happening.

NFL hitting NBA levels of wondering whose interests the refs are working for

if you are going to have this level of idiotic reffing, you better allow the coaches to challenge roughing the passer like the CFL.

The most hilarious part is the penalty is, allegedly, about player safety, yet they've already let a clearly concussed Tua play this season. As a longtime NBA fan I agree, league feels more like the NBA every week.

No more tackling the QB in the pocket.

But there's also a ton of time left, so I'm fully expecting there to be a brutal make up call down the line. Just like you'd expect in the NBA.
