Was Officiating vs. Saints actually a problem for Bucs?

    This is a serious question.

    Yes, the OPI on Evans was stupid. Bad call, no question.

    But Evans actually leads the league in generating defensive PIs. Which means refs are throwing flags that help the Bucs. So its not like the refs are picking on him.

    The real data is in the stats:

    Saints penalties: 9-76
    Bucs: 7-55

    On top of which, 5 of the Bucs penalties gave the Bucs O a first down (0 for the Saints).

    So while we all saw a couple bad calls (and officiating is a problem across the NFL), didn’t the refs do more to help the Bucs than hurt?

    Giving the Bucs 5 penalties via first downs is a big deal.

    Not a fan of blaming the refs,its levels out both ways,for all teams thru out the year

    Quality teams dont let it come down  to a bad call or two.

    You can bet your ass the Bucs had a few non calls, in their favor.

    Nope

    I haven’t figured out how non calls, bad spots by the refs, and bad calls actually helped the Bucs Sunday.

    Please explain

    I look at timing of called penalties. If they call the penalty on the Saints CB that lined up off sides, that is a 1st down and keeps that drive going. The refs in the NFL have been brutal this year.

    Not whining.

    Just asking a question that you apparently don’t have an answer for.

    Bad things happen to bad teams(fumbles, interceptions, penalties, miscues, dropped passes, missed field goals, wasting time outs, defensive confusions, sacks, the list could go on forever). That’s the Bucs.
