It's been a pretty clean game as far as the refs but the reaction by the announcers still sells the ref bias. Every time the Pats throw an incomplete pass they go "noooooooo flag!" Not no flag, which isn't something they say after every incomplete pass in other games, but noooooo flag. Then when they got the flag just now was all YES FLAG!

Good penalty if he doesn’t come back.

Why the NFL doesn't have the college rule of ejection for a game makes no sense .  You could theoretically do this every week to the opposition's best player with little recourse.

Its unnecessary roughness to hit the person receiving a pass?

I normally am all for protecting a wr but the defender didn’t lead with his head and even turned his body. Gronk was falling so that is why they hit heads. Gronk is 6’7....church is like 6 inches below. That is just unlucky.

I might need to look at it again but I don't think he led with his helmet. Gronk put his head down it looked like to me.

Defenseless receiver....doesn't matter.

    • I don't know about that one... but this was the playoffs of the 2003 season, Manning was at the very beginning of his stretch of dominance over the league. Dungy was also a very conservative head coach, even for 2003. Can't imagine any coach giving these instructions in 2020, but the league has become a lot more progressive in a relatively short period of time.    It was two years later in the playoffs against the Steelers when PM had to shoo the punt team off the field for a 4th down play. We all remember the visual. But I decided to look up the play by play. It was 21-3, Steelers, and that 4th down play was the last play of the 3rd quarter, ball at the Indy 36. It's hard to imagine any coach punting in that situation right now, especially with a QB who just won MVP by throwing 49 TDs the previous season. But Dungy's reflex was to punt, and it took PM, back to back MVP winner, QB of a team that started the season 13-0, to convince Dungy to let the offense go for it. Dungy mouthed his response: "It's on you."    My point is that it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Dungy wasn't a fan of PM having so much control at the line of scrimmage, especially back in 2003/2004, on the road, AFFCG. 
    • I agree and Id add that not addressing QB is the same (or worse) as making a bad pick at the position. Herbert and Love were in play but Ballard chose to address the DT position instead. The team needed a QB, there were QBs to be had and he passed. As those guys continue to develop and start to play its a reflection on Ballard imo.   
    • @Jared Cisneros @Narcosys   Choosing 1 from these for a flex: DeSean Jackson, Mike Gesicki, Mark Ingram, Corey Davis
    • I would go with Ekeler for the PPR aspect since right now both Drake and Chubb are being used as 2 down backs without many receptions. It is likely in Ekeler's favor, IMO. 
    • That's what manning said after the game.
