Playoffs and Officiating
I will never understand how teams are forced to play one set of rules for 16 games and then the playoffs start and the entire way the game is officiated changes, mainly the total disregard of the rules when it comes to defensive backs.
All of a sudden they can grab, hold, hang over them like a cheap suit, hit them all the way down the field and get there early on passes, but it's called letting them play.
Fine, if that's the way they are going to play it should be that way from week 1.

12 men in the huddle on 49ers not called.
Just makes me wonder what is said to the refs before the games.
thats what i like about jerome bogers crew, you always know there gonna let em play the game. last superbowl was great because they let the physical stuff go.
As the OP said it should be the same all year not just change it for playoffs.Usuall crap from NFL

You can't let game be physical on one hand and then touch football on other
I just want to know how Jeff Triplette finagled his way into getting a playoff game. ****ing terrible. Leavy, too.
The NFL is slightly fixed. You think they want the Panthers in the Superbowl? No. They got EXACTLY what they wanted. Peyton vs Brady and Kaep vs Wilson (49ers vs Seahawks). $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for the NFL. Any notice of the Pats Colts game? The refs were so leaning towards the Pats it was disgusting. Luck got laid out late, 3 steps after he threw the ball, and there was no call. A Colts DL farted near Brady and was ejected.
