    They’ve restructured a lot of contracts to get under the cap. The NFL makes it pretty easy to continually push money to the future. This coming season was supposed to be cap hell for Green Bay, but that’s been pushed back another 3-4 seasons. Eventually that all comes due, but that’s a problem for future Homer.

    They should have review... but keep the clock running.

    I've always thought football should just run the clock from opening kickoff. 60 minutes game time, 60 minutes run time.

    Because no one wants to watch a 5-hour game?

    While my interest in football was already waining, I will forever remember a Colorado-Kansas game in Boulder and at least 3 times there was a clear touchdown, like patently obvious, and they stopped the game for a review just to confirm nothing happened. I left at the end of the 3rd quarter and it was already well over 3:30 hours since kickoff. Review in football already makes the games tedious, I can't imagine adding in that many more.

    If they want to add the ability to challenge penalty calls/non-calls, I'm fine with that.

    ... you can't call a penalty you don't see. As I explained, given the way it occurred, only 1 official could've reasonably been expected to see the tug on the face mask - the back judge. And he's on the far hashmarks looking over his shoulder. You can argue he should've been closer, but my guess is his primary duty prior to the pass was to watch for holding on the guy cutting across the middle going towards the far side.

    The side judge was in decent position but couldn't have seen the face mask since the receiver's body was in the way. The line judge was 30 yards behind the play and no way he sees it. The side judge on the far side had 5 people between him and the ball, and again he had other primary responsibilities to be looking at.

    It was still OPI. Missed or not, it was pretty darned obvious that something was up when the best 1:1 defender went down like that. Maybe I have different expectations, but this was the ONLY NFL game played Sunday, right? So they could put the best of the best refs in place? Meaning that there were multiple eyes that should have seen the play.

    As far as I am concerned, the questionable holding call was fine because of that. The missed call gave Cincy 6 points, the Rams still had to put the ball into the end zone- so Cincy still had a chance to prevent that.

    Not sure how it was just missed like that, the receiver reached back and forward, defender goes the direction of his arms, then he reaches back catches the ball and runs. With the defender on the ground. It wasn't as if he just lost his footing. The addition of his head turning around in an unnatural direction was just icing on the cake.

    There were more than the one ref on the field, and more than one could have called that.

    In the end, it was good that the missed call didn't win the game.
