First note. Marvin Lewis will speak Tuesday rather than Monday -- which is customary.
Kevin Hench mentions about the Matt Hasselbeck fumble/no fumble/complete/received/incomplete play.
I'm not worried about the change of possession part. I can accept he was down and the ground can't cause a fumble -- even though that's a little suspect. But how the refs missed the basic concept of complete, not complete, is beyond me. Rules. Rules. Rules. It's a disaster that the NFL doesn't add another ref in the press box to make sure plays are called correctly.
Take challenges away from coaches and put it all on the refs. They review each play. If they require more time, or need to make a change, they stop the game and make those corrections. For claiming to be professional, there's a lot of aspects in the NFL that are very bush-league from players to coaches to officiating.
Paul Daugherty wonders about the secondary without mentioning the linebackers -- two of whom joined the team within the past two weeks receiving a large chunk of playing time.
