The Washington Redskins lost a chance to complete their comeback and take down the division rival New York Giants on Sunday Night Football, which was just the latest blunder by NFL officials this season.
We have been seeing an increase in bad calls this year, at least much bigger mistakes, and Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss believes that the refereeing this season is worse than it has ever been before.
“It’s probably been worse this whole year as a total, not just this team. But I’ve watched a lot of football this year. It’s been the worst that I’ve ever seen,” Moss said, via Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
“I understand [there are] so many things being changed. But at the end of the day, some of that stuff is crap. 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.”
The constant change in NFL rules certainly has made it harder for NFL refs to make calls with consistency, but that is there job and they are expected to do so.
Hopefully we won’t see a blown call determine a big game in the postseason — or even worse, the Super Bowl — but the way that things have been going this season we wouldn’t be holding our breath.
