The league really needs to temporarily increase the number of coach challenges to 3 if this is the case, in my opinion.

These guys didn't even remember to review more than half of the plays that they were supposed to automatically review for Christ's sake. This could get ugly

Yeah, the replacement officials have been awful. Something needs to be done. I have a feeling **** is going to get real controversial this season

they should give the HCs one extra challenge per half....

The only good thing I have seen is that the bad calls appear to against both teams......bad is bad, but at least it's not an advantage for anyone.

After they throw a flag they look like deer in the headlights, like they don't even know why they threw the flag in the first place.

If I would have known the NFL was hiring refs with HS football experience, I would've applied myself.

^ This.

Missing calls is one thing, but I think it's pretty obvious that a lot of these guys don't even know when they are supposed to call something, even when they see it.

It was actually 'glorified High School' experience, if you remember correctly. So technically I think you are over qualified.

"Whatever that means".
