    I know it was NOT the reason for the loss but...

    The holding was the worst, by far, I have ever seen in over 35 years of watching a TON of football. Our D-line and recievers were SO frustrated you could see it by their reactions after plays. The Cowboys knew the refs were not going to call holding so they used it to gain a physical and mental advantage. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually encouraged it during halftime.

    Chris Collinsworth is a d-bag for saying that the replacement refs did a good job. He actually said that he would not have called that mugging on Cruz. He really pisses me off. Sucking up to Goodell.

    The refs are going to seriously impact the outcome of many games this weekend and will continue to do so for a while. The league needs to realize that they are impacting the quality of their product. This is REALLY bad!

    Just watched the game again.... JPP was held 4 times by Tyron Smith that I could see. Kiwi was held on a critical play. Linval was held. Cruz was certainly interfered with in the end zone. There was an illegal shift that wasnt flagged.

    Then, all of a sudden, the refs decided to start throwing flags in the 4th.

    Really doesnt make any sense...

    If those flags were thrown, the cowboys wouldve had over 100 yards in penalties and it wouldve totally changed the game.

    I have never seen JPP being so upset for being held until last night. He was screaming at the refs. I'd say the refs did a horrible job.

    Perhaps the refs got a nasty message from Goodell during the game and they needed to get their heads out of their you know what and earn their pay. Putrid!

    The holding was awful!! Sometimes I wonder if these broadcast partners of the NFL are obligated to put a positive spin, either contractually or like an unspoken rule.

    To be fair...Giants had a blatant pick play for a catch that was ignored, and I thought at the time it was because they figured the refs wouldn't call it and they were right. But you are right generally.

    I may be crazy but for some reason it seems that holding calls rarely happen on passing plays (perhaps by league design?). If there is a running play, holding calls seem to be called much more often.

    All these threads do is provide entertainment to Cowboy fans.
    Personally...i wont give em the satisfaction.

    Plus if the refs were being relaxed on holding calls...then some blame has to go to either the scouting department of the Giants for not recognizing that these refs are laxed at these types of calls or the coaching staff for not taking advantage of it...Just something to think about.

    That pick play is legal
