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).

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?

    • Don't be ridiculous   Darius Leonard was an All-Pro his rookie year. Okereke will have a hard time matching that.
