There has been a lot of officiating mishaps lately it seems like. The famous picked up flag at the end of the Carolina Panthers game against the Patriots, the officials didn’t flag Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin for interfering in Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones’ return.
The worst mistake of all might have been the down confusion at the end of the New York Giants and Washington Redskins game. The officials on the sideline indicated it was first down when it was actually third. Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss might be a little biased having been the victim of one of those errors, but he calls it the worst officiating he has seen.
The NFL came out and said play should have been stopped to correct the situation.
“Its probably been worse this whole year as a total, not just this team,” Moss said of the officiating, via The Washington Post. “But I’ve watched a lot of football this year. It’s been the worst that I’ve ever seen.”
“I understand (there are) so many things being changed. But at the end of the day, some of that stuff is crap,” Moss said. “So hopefully somebody who’s in a higher position that can really watch this season alone and see some of the stuff that’s being called and hasn’t been called, they can go and try to critique that because it’s been the worst by far since I’ve been in the league.”
