Jerry Jones: Hochuli a "Highly Criticized Official"

It's rare to have anyone in the league openly criticize an NFL official, but Jerry Jones did just that when commenting on the outrageous non-fumble call at the end of the Denver -San Diego game.

The referee of the game, Ed Hochuli, is widely respected as the best in the league.  In a poll of NFL head coaches last year for the best referee, he tied with Mike Carey with the most votes.  Most of us know Hochuli as the referee who provides clear and thorough explanations of the play calls, and prior to Sunday as someone who seldom blew calls.

Houchili is also head of the NFL Referees Association, which negotiated a sizable pay increase for referees back in 2001.  Maybe Jerry was slamming Houchili for negotiating a better deal?  Why else would he publicly slam such a respected figure?

Given some of the crazy calls and non-calls last night, maybe Jerry should have kept his mouth shut.
