I think the refs thought that he was trying to slam Grads' head into the ground.  I don't think it was a penalty either, but I'm not going to argue with them about it.  Sometimes you get the calls, and sometimes they go against you. It usually evens out.

On the NFL Network this week Mike Pereira, the NFL VP of Officiating, reviewed 2 or 3 "roughing the QB" plays and then at the end he said that the officials have been instructed to throw the flag if there is any question at all that roughing has occurred.  The view is that the QBs are to be protected at the cost of making a bad call. 

The call they made today was not much different from one of the ones they showed as an example.

Truths:
1.  Never have an argument with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with their experience.
2.  For some it would be better if they remained silent and be thought a fool than to speak and erase all doubt.

With the exception of removing the QB's spleen on field!

Could be a reason they are being more prudent with making the calls now.

Bottom Line is that Grad's did have his head slammed into the ground...ref saw it, and with the recent spleen injury, he made the call.

We've gotten screwed too, but one finally went our way. And btw they still had a chance to stop us, but their D couldn't handle an offense with 3 starting rooks.

At the time I thought it was a poor call but when I saw the replay again tonight it really does look like he tried to drive his head into the ground.

I see why Cary called it even though it was a very touchy call.

Grads was curling up, in which your head drops to your chest and it may look as if your head was being slammed into the ground...........Bucs get the call, Bucs win without it.....

If that play was against the Bucs we'd all be screaming about it. The Bucs were on the winning end of some of the calls but damn, it's been the other way around for the first quarter of the season...

it was a good call he did get his head driven into the ground,we were over due to get a few calls after last week which was just rediculous.

There were some Bengals fans sitting behind us and crying over the call on Grads...I cannot use the words here that I gave them, but basically I said, "Your pathetic %*&#@* asses would be screaming %&*# murder if it were Palmer on the other end of a hit...." among other "niceties".

I've been on a lot of roadies to see the Bucs and seen alot of other fans of teams.  None of them as bad as the Bengal groupies today though.

Thanks for the excellent read! I love being on the good side of a "bad" ref call.

I'm sure Simms injury has the refs quick to throw the roughing the passer flag. The fact of the matter is... the sacker could've easily got Grads down without resorting to the old pile driver!
