Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

The number of miscues by the referees was staggering. It was obvious towards the end of the game that they were reluctant to even throw a flag, for fear of being incorrect. The number of wrong calls they made was absolutely crazy for a high profile marquee nationwide game like MNF.

That said, terrible game overall. Without those turnovers, the Broncos probably would have won. There were several questionable play-calls made in the second half, too. I'm not sure why they didn't burn the last timeout before the 2 minute warning... Stop the clock, get another stop, and the Falcons would be forced to snap before the 2 minute warning for a 3 and out. Not sure of the logic behind that move.
