Pass Interference Penalties

Recommended Posts

I'm curious if someone can explain to me why they called the PI on Rock when the ball had already been tipped away by Hooker?

 

Also, I thought Tell had great coverage, used his body to shield, had his head turned and swatted the ball away cleanly?

 

If I were the staff I wouldn't even be upset about those two penalties.

 

Thoughts?

I thought the penalty occurred/there was contact with Rock and the WR right before Hooker tipped the ball. I wasn't upset by that call.

Agreed on Tell's DPI though. Wasn't a fan of that one.

The PI call on Ya-Sin was solely due to the fact he didn't turn his head around and play the ball. The pass looked under-thrown and was broken up by Hooker. I probably wouldn't have thrown a flag on that one.

There were a lot of questionable calls, no doubt.  Indy needs to tighten that up if this is a precursor for the regular season.

Film review, tighten up the coverage, clean up silly mistakes.  Poor officiating in pre-season games is perhaps a blessing in disguise. Rivers will be throwing the ball all over the place, tighten up!

It’s pre-season there are always a lot of flags because you have guys who don’t normally play and in some cases just aren’t good so they are more likely to get flagged to start with.  

 

Then the refs always over officiate the pre-season to get players used to new rules and points of emphasis and then the refs slowly back off once the real games start.

 

So I wouldn’t freak out too much about the number of flags right now.  If it happens vs the Chargers then be concerned.

Rock never turned his head to locate the ball. Which is why he got called. But truthfully there were a ton of calls that shouldn’t have been called.

Ya including the one on Tell I thought that call was crap along with a bunch of others I saw.

I also think that the refs threw some questionable flags.  But you are correct, worry if it happens in the regular season.

Playing and winning in football is harder than it looks. It's impossible to do what you're supposed to be doing, and cover for others who aren't getting the job done (yet). I saw a lot of that on TV yesterday. I hope they get it all together "by the time we reach the frontier" (Last Starfighter).

    • Some of the debating over the "meaning" of the polls are kinda funny. The overwhelming majority do not feel JB is the answer. Call him average or below average, really doesn't matter. Chad Kelly getting a shot doesn't really matter either. Neither does JB starting till we find "the guy"....   Bottom line is most folks aren't happy and want something different and that was the million dollar question. How it all happens is another another question (actually multiple questions) altogether. 
    • Who needs to go to any other site when we have you, great work 
    • You nailed it!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what is happening!!!!!!!!!!! Great post. Yes, we have to try and keep trying to do what is required. The team has regressed this year and its because of JB. This injury thing with JB is a bunch of crap along with less then desired WR's. Please Mr. Ersay do what has to be done. The team will never go anywhere with this guy. 
    • On the first bolded, I absolutely agree. He lost so much from last year (OL, WR, RB, and coach), and his D is a lot worse. They are in catch up mode a lot this year, and asking him to do way to much.   On the comments about him making a mistake, I disagree. He's shown what he can do with decent talent, and with a decent OC (Yost), last year. Most reports said he was weighing a transfer to get back to Yost. At best, he'd just be replicating the season he had last year, which was very good. Would it raise his stock, maybe... but he's starting to trend middle of the 1st and either the 3rd or 4th QB taken. If he stayed in school, and he had a good year, best he is going to do is be second (after Lawrence), and he's lost out on a paid year. It's kind of a wash IMO if he does go middle first this year.
