View Full Version : Snee hold was another blown call?

I am happy we won but on the Snee holding penalty, was that one a blow call as well? I remember Fox showing one replay and it didn't look like too much. Can someone check it out? Thanks

nevermind all the holding going on with the packers O-line...

tight life bro what do you mean by this?

yeah it's like every time a defender goes to the ground while being blocked they call holding on us, like we are just tackling these guys ... i almost think the guy knew he was out of the play and intentionally fell to induce the flag

Yup. </P>

I saw JPP held all game long, and nothing. Then a guy falls near Snee on a "potential" big play and the refs flag it. Its pretty obvious the refs were leaning a certain way.</P>

the funny thing is tons of our holding calls are on run plays in which we are stuffed for no gain anyways. it just adds insult to injury.

i agree snee did not hold the guy, i have a DVR and replayed it a couple times and the guy simply fell over.

Not a hold at all. Bull**** call

Especially when we were held all game with no call.

There was one play where Newhouse actually blocked JPP quite well but we had great coverage and Rodgers stepped up in the pocket between the LG and LT and he was RIGHT in front of JPP and Rodgers didn't see him.

JPP went to disengage from the block for an easy sack, probably forced fumble, and Newhouse just held on. Like thats the one holding call that should be made 100% of the time. Ref was staring right at him too. Awful

Not to mention the 2-3 B.S. holding calls during Falcons playoff game.

Yep even the announcers even mentioned that it was bogus..

There was also several times Eli got blasted well after ball was released and he never got a flag

That hold was an example of how the refs. can make a very subtle difference in the game.

As I recall, it was third quarter and GB had the ball for some time. They score a FG. Giants get it back and get little on a first down run. The mystery penalty flag. The only one all game called on a run. Now it's first and 20. Giants don't convert. Ball back to GB and momentum maintained.

There has been a ton of talk about interpretation calls and the mistakes they made on fumbles, spots, and late hits. It's much harder to have a dialogue about these phantom penalties on runs that don't even turn about to be big gainers.

You could call holding on every running play. Its always puzzling to me when that flag actually comes out.
