Poor Officiating Takes Away Cowboys Chances

In all my years of playing, and watching this sport I don’t think I have ever seen worse officiating than what was seen in Denver today. The NFL talks a lot about trying to eliminate bad calls that directly impact the outcome of the game, and they certainly missed at the end of this one.

With the game on the line, and the Cowboys putting themselves in a position to tie the football game, a first down throw was completed to Sam Hurd, and he immediately ran straight out of bounds, and the referee ruled that his forward progress was stopped in the field of play and allowed the clock to run, forcing the Cowboys to use their last timeout. Then on third down, Sam Hurd runs a slant in the endzone against Champ Bailey, and Bailey clearly committed pass interference pushing off of Hurd with his forearm. Then with fourth down and the game, they go back to the same play and Bailey clearly holds him, and was obviously all over the intended receiver(once again Sam Hurd).

The officials took away Dallas’ chances to win this game, and that is truly disgraceful. An apology simply won’t cure this loss.

    Wade needs to go. Even if we would of won we look awful. Everytime they show Wade on the sidelines he looks clueless.
