Tune into WBZ-FM this afternoon for four hours of the above subject.
At least in that time period, Mike Felger will have someone on his side. Last night, he was on an island with Gerry Austin as the only people in America who thought that the right decision at the end of last night’s game was to pick up the flag for interference or defensive holding as Rob Gronkowski endeavored to come back for a game winning TD pass.
You’re absolutely right Mike – the refs made the right call picking up that flag. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just hopelessly in the bag for the Patriots!
I mean, wow. That was unbelievable.
Not since the Fail Mary pass by the Seahawks last season – in a game called by replacement officials – have we seen a call so unanimously panned as this one.
I mean seriously…when you’ve got almost all of ESPN, plus Mike Pereira, Peter King, ProFootballTalk, Mike Freeman, Pete Prisco and scores of others who have absolutely no good feelings towards the Patriots saying it was the wrong call, something is up.
But Felger stood firm on the postgame last night, insisting that such a “ticky-tack” play should not be called. Of course, Felger was totally in favor of the PI call on Devin McCourty, in which the Carolina receiver hooked his arm and held it to his chest and then flopped to the ground.
That last play sort of goes against the other growing storyline, which is that New England didn’t “deserve” to win the game because they couldn’t stop the Panthers when it counted.
The polar opposite of Felger and Mazz is Gresh and Zo this morning. On fire.
Of course, there are some who just can’t help to cry for attention. The Sun Chronicle, the self-appointed conscience of all things objective and on-the-level, not to mention duty-bound to call out the Kraft family when necessary, tweeted the following this morning:
Strangely, the Tweets were later deleted. Not very Fearless.
