Cromartie wuz robbed.
Was the Aaron Maybin call BS? If the ball is intercepted and being returned isn't Luck viewed as a would be tackler? Why is knocking him down any different?
Definite BS. The refs were ridiculously bad today.
Possibly the worst call in the NFL ever!!!
Okay was just making sure I understood the rules. But great we now have a QB that is getting protected as a rookie. Irony being when Sanchez was a rookie Rex was losing his mind as refs just let defenders just tee off on him.
But I was at the game and they didn't show a good replay of the Maybin penalty, just checked it out and wow, what a terrible call. It was a solid block on a player that was close to the play. It wasn't like he was just looking for a cheap shot on the QB, it was a legit block.
No one at the game had any clue what that penalty was. The refs were horrendous today. Every play I feared there was a penalty. Worst was when Reggie Wayne fell down and Cro got called for PI.
Have you ever seen a player have 2 INT returns for TDs both called back for questionable penalties? That could only happen to Cro and the Jets.
if that was Vick getting creamed there is no way it would be a penalty.
Im pretty sure the refs knew they ****ed up, but they didn't want to negate the call and look stupid.
How can you have roughing the passer when a defender has the ball in his hands running in the QB's general vicinity?
We definitely got our money's worth on the Facemask penalty though. (Was it Coples?) About twisted Luck's head off...
The penalty wasn't for the block Maybin gave Luck. After Luck went down Maybin "gave him the business" so to speak. Supposedly you cannot see it on the replay, but after the two went down, Maybin threw a forearm to his head. Or so the story goes....

The hit on Luck was for a forearm shot to the head after Luck was on the ground. You can see it on the live shot only. Good call.

Andrew Luck took some real shots yesterday. Obviously I agree that Maybin's block was perfectly legal but man, I think we roughed him pretty good for sixty minutes. Their coaching staff needs to be shot for having him in there still taking big hits with 30 seconds left on the clock and down by 20+ points. Stupid of them.
I agree with the interference on Cro with the 2nd INT.
